How to watch the 2018 League of Legends World Championship Group Stage

Can a single NA team escape from some of the hardest Worlds groups ever?

Riot Games

With the Play-In stage finally complete and all the groups set, it’s time to things to get rolling with the Group Stage of Worlds 2018.

This year might be the most wide open Worlds has ever looked and that means some stacked groups during this stage. For North American fans, things might look particularly daunting as the NA teams at this tournament are not necessarily favorites to get out of any of their groups.

As with previous years, the Group Stages of Worlds 2018 will feature four groups of four teams each. Each team will play each other twice in single matches. Once all six of these matches have been played by every team in every group, the top two finishers from each group will advance to the Knockout Stage.

Each and every match of the 2018 World Championship can be seen on Riot’s Twitch and YouTube channels, or on lolesports.com where you can watch and complete your Worlds viewing missions as well.
