Knocked Out Teams

With 16 teams battling it out for the Summoner's Cup it’s obvious that only 1 team can win. Now we’ve come to the end of the group stages these matches become a lot more important as one bad play and you’ll be knocked out of the tournament.

Heading into the knockout stages we’ve already had to say bye bye to 8 teams, some who deserve it due to their poor performance and some who just got really unlucky. Let’s have a look at the 8 teams who have been eliminated from Worlds 2016.

G2 Esports

After only winning 1 game from their entire group G2 leave the tournament on 1 win and 5 losses.

Counter Logic Gaming

The second team from group A to leave, CLG won 3 games and lost 3 putting them 1 win behind ANX.

IMay

After only winning 2 games from their group and losing 4 IMay finished in joint last place of group B along with Flash Wolves.

Flash Wolves

Joining IMay with the same results of 2 wins and 4 losses Flash Wolves are the second team from group B to be waving goodbye to World.

Ahq

A promising contender for their region ahq missed the 2nd place by 1 win and were forced to settle for 3rd finishing on 3 wins and 3 losses.

INTZ

The Brazilian wildcard had trouble holding up against other international teams at Worlds and ended up finishing in last place with 1 win and 5 losses.

Team SoloMid

One of the NA favourites for the home crowd Team SoloMid narrowly missed out on the number 2 slot and ended up being eliminated after 3 wins and 3 losses.

Splyce

For Splyce it has been a disaster ever since their first match and their last match was the final nail in the coffin. Finishing last in their group with only 1 win and 5 losses it’s no surprise Splyce have been eliminated.
