Rogue the worst off among the Europeans

The last two Worlds champions have both been put into Group A, with Rogue joining them. The third European seed will once again have the toughest group in the entire tournament, and face an uphill task to make the knockout stage.

LEC champions MAD Lions, on the other hand, can be extremely happy, with LNG the likely addition to their group from Play-Ins.

Fnatic, meanwhile, will face PSG Talon, RNG and perhaps Chovy's Hanwha Life Esports.
