"The Ocean Is Boiling" - A Week at Summoner's Rift

Hello everyone! We're back to the weekly "Week in Summoner's Rift"! In this issue you will find out:

  • Why is the ocean boiling around Iceland?
  • What position will Bwipo play?
  • Which team will Selfmade join?

Mid-Season Invitational 2021

At the MSI 2021 tournament, which takes place in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik, passions ran high and the ocean boiled. Of course not literally, but hot matches and beautiful moments from the teams may well contribute to this.

Groups A and B ended up playing, bringing Royal Never Give Up, Pentanet.GG, MAD Lions and PSG Talon to the next stage. Read more about it here.

Unfortunately for CIS fans, Unicorns of Love in a persistent tiebreak against the Australians lost and lost their chances of passing further.

The group stage will end on May 11, when the matches of group C are finished.
