Legends of Runeterra Worldwalker EMEA/NA Seasonal playoffs: Standings, decks

From Thralls to Aphelios and Gnar, players battled for invites to Worlds.

The top 32 Legends of Runeterra players within the EMEA region and Americas competed at the Worldwalker Seasonal tournament, showcasing a variety of decks. 

Taking place on July 17, the best LoR players battled within the last days of the Worldwalker meta for direct invites to Worlds. Players competed in the Open rounds on July 16, with only 32 advancing to the playoffs. 

Each player brought three decks without duplicate champions and prior to a best-of-three match, was allowed to ban one of their opponent’s decks. Players who made it to the top four earned a direct invite to the Legends of Runeterra World Championship taking place later this year.

The EMEA top 32 was stacked with LoR veterans and newcomers to the competitive scene. The top four at the EMEA Worldwalker Seasonal were Kuraschi, Pookpook, Ucan Protein, and Mic Check—with Kuraschi and Pookpook facing off in the finals.

Trivo banned Nami/Twisted Fate Shadow Isles while TheChEm tossed Bard/Vi from the equation, leaving both players in a double-mirror match finals battle. Earning the game one win was Trivo in the Jace/Heimerdinger Shadow Isles. The Brazilian Trivo was one HP away from a Seasonal title during game two but TheChEm was able to revive themselves and regain match advantage.

But it wasn’t enough, with Trivo pulling off back-to-back wins with Aphelios/Viktor over Jace/Heimerdinger SI, becoming the LoR Worldwalker champion.
