RED CANIDS

RED Canids were a ‘second tier team' that built a solid seven man roster with the goal of overcoming every other team in Brazil. They realized this dream by sweeping Keyd Stars in the CBLoL Finals to earn a chance to play at MSI in front of one of the most passionate home crowds in League esports. If their play can match the passion of their fans, expect a powerhouse performance.

They're the oldest and most well-known organization in the region, and while they haven't always been the best team, they're certainly the best at learning from their mistakes. Their stellar coaching staff, incredible macro game, and tenacious fighting spirit will make them a formidable opponent at MSI.

Hauntzer

With the the influx of top lane talent into the NA LCS this split, people questioned how Hauntzer would perform. It turns out this question was irrefutably answered, as Hauntzer played the best split of his life. He grew into a leader for TSM, showed a strong ability to play a range of champions, and had a willingness to sacrifice for his team — along with racking up plenty of solo kills and completely carrying games. He's the NA LCS All-Pro top laner, MVP of the Finals series, and will be a huge threat for TSM at the Mid-Season Invitational.

Team WE is one of the oldest and most storied organizations in China, who up until now had never won an LPL title. They topped Group B and made short work of the Playoffs, beating Royal Never Give Up 3-0 in the Finals. What’s most impressive is how they did it all with supposedly 'B-tier' players, who came together to form an S-Tier team. They're greater the sum of their individual parts, and have shown what great synergy is able to accomplish on the Rift.

They defeated Telecom rivals KT Rolster 3-0 in a statement to any potential challenger at MSI. Every player on the roster is a superstar in his own right, and has huge playmaking potential. But it is SKT's teamplay which makes them most threatening. Both calculated and fluid, they'll set up plays perfectly, and react to their opponents aggression with flawless execution. They sit well atop the throne of League esports.

Since debuting on SKT, Huni has shown that he is a world class top laner no matter what region he's playing in. Now, we'll see just how much he’s improved as he takes to the international stage.
