Scores and standings after Group stage Day 1
Mid-Season Invitational 2021, League of Legends’ first international tournament of the year, has started. Fans saw all 11 participating teams in opening-day action.
All the eleven regional spring champions are battling it out in Reykjavík, Iceland for fame, glory, and also an extra slot at Worlds 2021. Riot has brought in a few significant changes to the MSI format this year.
Till last year, teams from developing regions like Oceania, Brazil, Latin America, Turkey, etc. used to play a “Play-In” qualifier stage to progress to the next round while teams from the top four regions namely, China, Korea, Europe, and North America seeded directly into the final stage.
From this season, Riot has scrapped the “Play-In” stage of the tournament and split all participating regions into four tiers based on the results of all international tournaments held in the last two years. 11 teams have been segregated into three separate groups and here’s how things stand after the first day of play.
