T1 Zeus eager to face ‘top LPL teams’ at Worlds 2022

T1's top laner is looking forward to the challenge ahead.

With League of Legends competitions from all across the world nearing the end of their summer playoffs, teams who have qualified for Worlds 2022 are now beginning to voice their hopes ahead of the tournament.

After beating DWG KIA on Sunday, Aug. 21, and qualifying for Worlds 2022, T1 top laner Choi “Zeus” Woo-je admitted he’s hoping to face LPL teams at the international tournament.

“All the top LPL teams, especially their top laners are really good,” Zeus said in an interview with Inven Global when asked if there are any teams of players he would like to play against at Worlds 2022. “Im really looking forward to facing them.”

On Sunday, T1 narrowly beat DWG KIA 3-2 in the 2022 LCK Summer Split playoffs semifinals, which not only secured them back-to-back domestic finals but also a spot at the international tournament. T1 also became the second team from Korea to advance to Worlds 2022 after Gen.G, and the third team in the world, after their domestic rivals and Europe’s G2 Esports.

Thanks to championship points, T1 are guaranteed to start the event at the group stage without needing to go through the play-in stage. Nevertheless, with the squad playing in a 2022 LCK Summer Split playoffs final against Gen.G on Sunday, Aug. 28, they will fight to be the first representative from LCK at the tournament.

When it comes to LPL, however, no teams have secured a spot at Worlds 2022 yet, with round four of the Summer Split playoffs being played from today to Thursday.

Worlds 2022 will begin on Sept. 29 and will run until Nov. 5. The event will take place in four cities in North American, including Mexico City, New York, Atlanta, and San Francisco.
