The first seed of LPL got off to a great start in the group stage World Prizewith determination to win the trophy Summoner for China for the second year in a row.
G2 Esports is considered by many to be a good candidate for the position champion. But “life is not like a dream” when FunPlus Phoenix excellently won win in the first game before dealing a “fatal” blow to G2 with a dominant performance in the second game.
With a 0-2 lead, G2 saw that they needed to have a counter-sweep to claim the Summoner’s Cup. But unfortunately, they were unable to do so as FunPlus Phoenix quickly finished the third set to win 3-0, becoming Champion World 2019.
The World Championship saw 24 teams from around the world gather in Europe to compete for the Summoner’s Cup, although only one team was able to win the trophy and all the rest would go home with part of the prize pool.
The prize pool is yet to be finalized, as the amount including sponsorship contributions is based on in-game item sales. Riot itself started capital with $2,225,000 and the percentage breakdown for each position can be seen in the table below. The 2018 prize pool ultimately finished at around $6,450,000.
