The Legends of Runeterra World Championship for A Curious Journey will take place in the fall of 2022, showcasing top players from around the world.

Since the Legends of Runeterra World Championship was announced in February, several changes have taken place. Initially, the team had removed Seasonal tournament broadcasts from the schedule but announced the return of broadcasts in May following feedback from the LoR community. Additional paths toward Worlds were also added via a total of four Seasonal tournaments.

  • A Curious Journey
  • May 25 to July 19 season
  • July 20 to Aug. 30 season
  • Aug. 31 to Oct. 11 season

Players from around the globe can qualify to compete at LoR Worlds 2022 via either the Ranked ladder, tournament points earned at Seasonals, and through a top-four finish at an LoR Seasonal tournament. The A Curious Journey ranked season is scheduled to run from Feb. 16 to May 25, with the Seasonal tournament beginning on May 14 via the open rounds.

This is the second LoR World Championship. Team Liquid Alanzq earned the first Worlds title last year. Riot will have a regional qualification weekend at the 2022 LoR Worlds, along with a group stage top-16 elimination, and a top-eight playoff. Some details have yet to get revealed, but it is likely that players will compete in a best-of-three Pick and Ban match format.
