2021 LoL Worlds Quarterfinals — All Four Match-Ups Are Set!

by in League of Legends | Oct, 20th 2021

Only eight teams are left standing at 2021 LoL Worlds and, by the looks of it, the upcoming quarterfinals are bound to deliver in all the right ways! There have been numerous surprises thus far, but in the end, it’s fair to say that only the best and most adaptable teams have persevered. This year’s World Championship has been one to remember — in no small part because of its extremely versatile meta and a slew of seismic upsets, most of which came out of the blue. Heck, we’re still shell-shocked that FunPlus Phoenix failed to make it out, but that just goes to show that the margin for error at this level of play is so impossibly thin we might as well consider it non-existent. Most groups were far more competitive than expected; most teams are, therefore, separated by incredibly thin margins. Whether that’ll still be the case in the quarterfinals remains to be seen, but 2021 LoL Worlds has already delivered big time, and it’ll only get better and better!

2021 LoL Worlds | Quarterfinals Match-Ups

The four upcoming match-ups (all of which happen to be astoundingly good) are as follows:

T1 vs. Hanwha Life Esports — Friday, October 22

Royal Never Give Up vs. EDward Gaming — Saturday, October 23

DWG KIA vs. MAD Lions — Sunday, October 24

Gen.G vs. Cloud9 — Monday, October 25

It goes without saying, but we should be in for one heck of a week for the 2021 LoL Worlds quarterfinals! RNG vs. EDG definitely stands out as an absolute banger, although it’s nigh impossible to predict who’ll come out on top. Both teams have looked pretty darn great thus far, but it’s fair to say that they’ve been far from infallible. 

DWG KIA taking on the MAD Lions is also promising beyond measure, and even though most folks will obviously side with the LCK champions, one simply has to give the Lions a bit of credit — they’ll surely put on a show and, who knows, maybe they’ll even push DWG to the brink of defeat, much like they did back at this year’s Mid-Season Invitational.

Gen.G facing off against Cloud9 is no less alluring. We’re talking about a Best of 5 that could, by all means, go in C9’s favor, seeing how Gen.G haven’t been all that consistent lately. T1 vs. Hanwha Life is the least interesting match-up of the four, but it’s still more than worthy of our time and attention. Still, T1 are all but guaranteed to emerge victorious, so it definitely feels like a foregone conclusion. 

In any case, if you’re a fan of top-tier competitive League, the next few days for the 2021 LoL Worlds quarterfinals will be like Christmas and New Year’s Eve rolled up into one!
