Wild Rift: Horizon Cup kicks off this Weekend on eGG Network
We've crowned the best Dota 2, League of Legends, and CS:GO teams this year, and now it's time to find out who the best Wild Rift team in the world is. If you've been looking forward to seeing all the top Wild Rift teams globally go head to head against each other, you won't have to wait for long. The Horizon Cup is about to kick off this Saturday and this is the first time we'll get to see how each region stacks up against each other.
From China, we have Da Kun Gaming and ThunderTalk Gaming, with the former qualifying through the Spark Invitational 2021 through a 4-1 victory over Team For Champion, while the latter went through the gruelling 2022 LPL Qualifiers. Both teams look good and are from a strong region, so they'll be the ones to look out for at the event. KT Rolster came from Wild Rift Champions Korea where they went undefeated (7-0) in the playoffs, another scary team to look out for.
The SEA representatives, SBTC Esports (Vn) and Team Secret (Ph) emerged from the bloodbath that was the highly competitive SEA Championship. Both teams are looking strong and have the pride of our region on their backs - make sure you give them all your support!
Team Queso are from Wild Rift Origin Series, the EMEA regional circuit, and have been doing well in their region, snagging a lot of 1st and 2nd place spots in tournaments they've been competing in. Tribe Gaming NA are from North America, one of the last regions to receive the game so it'll be interesting to see if they have caught up to the rest of the world or if they will be leading the charge with a new perspective. The team only dropped a single game on their run to the grand finals and have won 12 of the last 17 tournaments they entered. TSM, a staple of the LoL scene that almost made it to Worlds this year, will be making their international debut at this event.
Sengoku Gaming has been dominating Japan for some time and will look to repeat that achievement at the Horizon Cup. eBRO Gaming look like the underdog of the tournament. Prior to Lolcito Salvaje Abierto, the team has struggled to win any prize money, so placing well at this event will be the biggest achievement they can accomplish.
In addition to the countless streams in various languages that will be broadcasting the Horizon Cup, you can catch all the action live on eGG Network TV, starting this Saturday (13 November) at 6 PM. Wild Rift Esports Facebook Page, Official Site, Liquipedia.
