Asian Games 2022 LoL Format
A total of 16 nations have earned their spot after participating in the ‘Road to Asian Games‘, seeding depending on their performance:
- Knockout Stage Teams: China, Malaysia, India, Saudi Arabia
- Group Stage Teams: Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Macau, Maldives, Palestine, Kuwait, Thailand, Vietnam, United Arab Emirates
The entire event takes place across multiple stages in Hangzhou, China, between September 25-29.
Firstly, the Group Stage has 12 teams split into 4 groups of 3 teams each. Yet to be determined, the teams in each group face each other once, against the LoL odds, in a single round-robin format.
Following these BO1 matches, only the Group Winners move on to the Knockout Stage with a number of tiebreaker rules in place.
Once in the Knockout Stage, the four group winners join the four seeded teams as listed above. Here, a single elimination bracket with BO3 matches will crown a new Asian Games LoL champion.
With regards to the schedule, we recommend tuning into official event pages and socials to stay up to date with any announcements.
In this betting preview, we’re diving into some predictions for the event based on the above League of Legends betting outright odds and the history of this event.
Asian Games 2022 LoL Betting
South Korea vs. China
As we’ve listed above, the outright odds are strongly in favour of South Korea or China walking away as victors here. Primarily for two reasons, the first one involves taking a look at the standings of the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta & Palembang:
- South Korea
- Chinese Taipei
More importantly and recently, Chinese and South Korean teams have dominated the global competitive LoL scene. Specifically, here’s a concise list of which teams have won the last handful of international LoL tournaments:
- MSI 2023 – JD Gaming (CN)
- Worlds 2022 – DRX (SK)
- MSI 2022 – RNG (CN)
- Worlds 2021 – EDward Gaming (CN)
- MSI 2021 – RNG (CN)
Respectively, these two regions have dominated the world.
Winning here will depend on how the players, sourced from a number of teams from their region, blend together. The favourites are South Korea, with many World Champions competing in both the LCK (SK) and LPL (CN) making them absolutely deadly.
However, China looks to make them earn their victory.
