Updated at May 13, 1:56 p.m. (GMT+8): Riot Games announced that due to latency issues that occurred in the first three days of the tournament, all matches involving Royal Never Give Up will be replayed.

After a challenging League of Legends esports Spring season that saw leagues shift between online and offline play under changing pandemic circumstances, 11 regional champions have been crowned.

These invited representatives will compete at the Mid-Season Invitational 2022 (MSI 2022) in Busan, South Korea. The Group Stage will be held at Busan Esports Arena, while the Rumble and Knockout Stage will be played at Bexco Exhibition Hall.

Despite it being an offline tournament, all teams will compete on 35 ping to maintain fairness since the LPL representative, Royal Never Give Up, are unable to travel due to the ongoing lockdown in China and will play remotely.

The first international League of Legends pro tournament of the year, the Mid-Season Invitational is held between Spring and Summer splits.

The 11 top teams that clinched the Spring title in their respective leagues have been invited to compete for the prestigious title and a share of the US$250,000 prize pool.

These teams hail from North America, Europe, Latin America, Brazil, Oceania, Korea, Turkey, Russia, Vietnam, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia. They will compete in Busan, South Korea, with the exception of LPL representative Royal Never Give Up, who will play from Shanghai, China.
