MSI 2023 Theme and Format


Defy expectations. Defy haters. Defy doubts. MSI is all about showcasing regional strength midway through the season. It’s the first step toward greatness, pushing beyond limits and showing up with a spirit of defiance.


This year, MSI will feature two double-elimination stages; the Play-In Stage and the Bracket Stage, giving regions more opportunity to defy all odds. If you’re not familiar with the changes, head over to the LoL Esports State of the Game article we released in January. Join us in person at the Copper Box Arena or tune in live on to cheer on your favorite region!
