For Western League of Legends fans, there is a program to savour. European champion G2 Esports will take on freshly crowned American champion Evil Geniuses. The other team in the pool is ORDER from Oceania, which makes its debut on the international stage. Because this pool consists of only three teams, all three teams will play four games against each other in the group stage.
Pool B is also very interesting, as Chinese champion Royal Never Give Up and Southeast Asian champion PSG Talon are paired together.
