Counter Logic Gaming
This team surprised everyone when they won the NA Summer Split and are now entering Worlds as the #1 NA Seed. What makes them unique among NA teams is that they are using no players from South Korea.
Yoe Flash Wolves
A taiwanese team from the LMS region coming in as the #2 Seed (out of 2). A fairly average team and it is unlikely that they will make it out of the gorup.
The #2 seed from Korea that has had decent placements in the LCK this year with 2nd, 4th and 3rd placements. During the LCK Summer playoffs they nearly beat kt Rolster who many consider the 2nd best team in Korea.
The best team in Brazil, which unfortunately doesn’t mean much in the international scene. They are one of the 2 teams coming from the Wildcard Tournament.
Arguably the best western team currently and known for going undefeated until the finals of the EU LCS Summer Split and winning both the Spring and Summer split. They nearly beat SK T1 earlier this year and have proven that they can take on the best teams in the world. They could easily make it to the top 4 this year.
The #3 seed from China. They are very inconsistent but are one of the best teams at drafting. It’s entirely possible that they do not make it out of this group.
ahq e-Sports Club
The #1 seed from LMS and the best Taiwanese team. They are known for being highly aggressive and their star mid player Westdoor. Could make it out of group if Westdoor plays well.
After picking up mid player Incarnation earlier this year they had a disastrous summer split and nearly got relegated until their previous captain Hai came back and not only prevented them being relegated but also managed to fight their way through the NA qualifiers to grab them a spot at worlds as the #3 seed.
SK Telecom T1
The best Korean team and potentially the best team in the world. They lost 2:3 against Edward Gaming earlier this year at MSI but that was several months ago and a lot has changed. They are known for winning Worlds 2013 but the only remaining player from that squad is the famous Faker who many consider the best player in the world. They are one of the favorites to win it all.
A european team and the #2 seed. They finished 3rd in both splits this year and seem incapable of defeating higher tier teams.
They are known for winning LPL Spring and defeating SK Telecom T1 at the MSI earlier this year. Since then they have fallen off a bit and finished 3rd in the summer split.
Wildcard team from Thailand. Will unfortunately be fed to the EDG and SKT1 woodchipper.
The #1 seed from China and many consider them the best Chinese team currently. They have the legendary korean player imp who won last year worlds. This team has not been able to prove themselves internationally yet.
#3 seed from South Korea. Finished 2nd in the LCK Summer split where they lost 0-3 to SKT1.
#2 seed and probably the most famous team in the west, if not the world. They have been in a slump lately and finished 2nd in the NA Summer playoffs where they got stomped by CLG. Will not make it out of the group.
#3 Seed from EU. They consist of former Fnatic players and are considered one of the best western teams. They did not play in the EU Spring split but they easily won against every team except Fnatic in the summer split. They also nearly beat Fnatic but lost 2-3 in a nailbiting final. Like CLG they use no korean players.
