This year the tournament will not take place as usual. There are actually twelve participants for the event. Due to the continuing Ukraine secretary, however, it was not played in the LCL. No team from the region will be represented.
Furthermore, a participating team cannot be on site in Busan. The Chinese representatives of RNG cannot travel to South Korea due to travel restrictions. You will play against the other teams online, while the MSI in Busan will otherwise take place in front of an audience as an offline event.
RNG will therefore try to defend your title under special conditions. They won the MSI 2021 and are again a favorite this year.
T1 and G2 eSports as favorites

The European selection of G2 eSports can also be included in this circle. The organization based in Berlin won the LEC Spring Split in impressive manner and was able to win the title in 2019.
