Worlds 2019 has concluded! If you don’t want to read spoilers about the winner of the 2019 Worlds Championship finals, please stop reading!

A huge congratluations to Funplus Phoenix, who walked home with the trophy after toppling G2 Esports. With a stunning opening ceremy, G2 Esports and FunPlus Phoenix put on an amazing show that didn’t disappoint.

With only three games played, Funplus Phoenix romped home with a clean sweep, with G2 looking dead and buried after their collapse in Game 1. What followed was a complete demolition of a team that – up until now – has looked very, very good, across all previous encounters.

Over on the official League of Legends website, Jack Stewart has put together a solid breakdown of each game in the Worlds 2019 lineup. It assumes you’re already fairly knowledgable about the game, so if you’re not, it might be worth heading to the match video.

The opening ceremony and debut of True Damage was dazzling, yet the action on the Summoner’s Rift was perhaps even more stunning. G2 and FPX made a name for themselves as two of the most unique teams to ever play the game – but only one of those names is now etched onto the Summoner’s Cup. Here’s how it all went down.

Alternatively, you can watch the action unfold over on YouTube (below).

We look forward to Worlds 2020 which, according to Riot, promises to be bigger and better than ever.

After breaking esports records left and right with its world championships over the past few years, with 99.6 million people tuning in for the 2018 final (in which China’s Invictus Gaming defeated Europe’s Fnatic), Riot Games wants to make its marquee event more than a simple tournament. With the 2020 edition, it’s aiming to blend competition, fandom, gaming and entertainment into something never seen in live production.

Once again, we’d like to congratulate Funplus Phoenix for their deserved victory, and we’re sure that G2 Esports will come back bigger, and better than ever next year.
