Wild Rift Origin Series Championship 2021: How it went
Being the third-placed team in the league stage, Team Queso advanced to the finals of the Wild Rift Origin Series Championship 2021. As per the tournament’s rule, the top-placed team gets to choose its opponent from the 3rd or 4th place in the Semifinals. So, league stage toppers Game-Lord chose Team Queso as their opponents.
Team Queso, proving the selection wrong for their opponents, won the cut to throat match by making a 3-2 win in the final round. On the other hand, Rix.GG beat the second-placed team of the league stage, Unicorns of Love, by a solid margin of 3-0 in the other semis.
Both teams then stepped into the Grand Finals. Showing a confident play, Team Queso won the first two rounds while Rix.GG took the win in the third game. But again, Team Queso crushed their opponent’s hope by winning the next match to make the final scoreline stand at 4-1.
Fans will remember this tournament for a long time
