This year’s League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational is approaching fast and it promises to be even bigger and better than before.
Teams from across the world will be heading to Vietnam and Taiwan at the beginning of May to prove that they have what it takes to lift the first major international trophy of the year.
Just like with previous years, the best teams from the LCS, LEC, LPL, LMS, LCK, and other regions will compete in the tournament.
