Worlds 2018 Play-In Stage has Changed

Infinity Esports from the Latin America North region ran into some visa issues that wasn’t their fault. Due to that the League Ops team got together and created a plan to minimally affect the Play-In stage of Worlds.

The fix is, from an outside point of view, really simple. Games that would have been played on the first day are now on day 2. The games that were to be played on day 2 will be on day 1. The same will be done to days 3 and 4.

Luckily, the issue was caught in time for everyone to be notified really early so they’re schedules shouldn’t be wrecked. It’s also great that this preserves the Play-Ins from having some sort of fiasco. If you look at lolesportsĀ I believe the changes are reflected there on the schedule.

Worlds 2018 is scheduled to start October 1 at 3 a.m. CDT. You can watch all the action here.
