Worlds 2023: Knockout Stage

The Knockout Stage is the ultimate competition, consisting of the grand final, semifinals and quarterfinals.

The bracket drawing for the Worlds 2023 Knockout Stage happened after the BiliBili Gaming vs. G2 Esports series during the Swiss Stage on Oct.29. This draw determined the fixtures for the quarter-finals and set the stage for the knockout segment of the tournament.

Here is a comprehensive guide to the 2023 Worlds Knockout Stage.

  • 8 teams from the Swiss Stage will compete.

An important development in this year’s Worlds is that all four EMEA (Middle East, Africa, & Europe) teams have been eliminated.

Elsewhere, all four Chinese teams reached the knockout stage, but It was Gen.G that fell to Bilibiil Gaming in the quarters and LNG’s elimination to T1 that saw Chinese representation drop to two teams in the semis. South Korea, with three teams remaining ahead of the knockouts, was the second-strongest region in the tournament until KT Rolster joined elimination alongside Dplus Kia.
