What is the LPL Regional Qualifiers 2022?
The top four teams with the most championship points — except for teams that already qualified for Worlds — will participate in the LPL Regional Qualifiers. Their seeding is based on championship points.
The LPL Regional Qualifiers 2022 feature a waterfall bracket played in best-of-five matches. In the first round, the first seed faces the second seed, and the third seed plays the fourth seed.
The match between the first and second seeds is a Worlds qualification match, with the winner qualifying for the Group Stage.
The losing team will then proceed to Round 2, where they’ll face the winner of the Round 1 match in the opposite bracket. The team who secures the Round 2 victory qualifies for the Worlds 2022 Play-In Stage.
