2014 World Championship Preview

With the World Championship just around the corner, it’s never been easier to get into watching professional League of Legends, but potentially never harder to understand it. What is champion select and why is it so important? What are the strong champions and why? What is a meta, and what defines the current meta? Who are the current strong teams and why?  Over the next week, I’ll be compiling the answers to these questions and more. For a list of intended topics, check below! As well, once the Group Stages start, I’ll be highlighting one or two games per day, and discussing how that game was won or lost at champion select.
