The Worlds 2021 Play-In Groups:
During the play-in phase, 10 teams are sorted into two groups, A and B, who will compete for the final 4 spots in the Worlds 2021 Group Phase.
- LCK - Hanwha Life Esports
- LPL - LNG Esports
- LLA - Infinity
- LCO - PEACE
- CBLoL - RED Canids
- PCS - Beyond Gaming
- LCS - Cloud9
- LCL - Unicorns of Love

Chovy meets Tarzan in Group A as the two will fight to see who automatically makes it to the Group Stage. While Group B looks promising for NA fans, the wildcard teams could surprise some.
The Worlds 2021 Groups:
The Group Phase of the 2021 World Championship encompasses 16 teams in total, 12 of which have automatically qualified already. Three teams of each of the four groups are already set.
- LCK - DAMWON KIA
- LPL - FunPlus Phoenix
- LEC - Rogue
- EDward Gaming
- 100 Thieves
- PSG Talon
- Royal Never Give Up
- MAD Lions
- Team Liquid
Group A is definitely the 'group of death' with both DAMWON and FPX. Nuguri will meet with his old team. Who do you think will come out on top?
Group B will also have a storied rivalry, with T1 and EDG facing off. Who will come out on top this time? Last time these teams met, T1 got the better end of the stick.
Group C looks promising for Fnatic, though RNG was the MSI champion and PSG had the best splits in the history of the PCS. It'll be hard to determine who is going to make it out of this group.
In Group D, MAD Lions will have to face off against Gen.G and Team Liquid, so we're confident that the LEC first seed is going to be able to impress and make it out of groups.
