Esports: Weekly preview

It is all about the League of Legends World Championship this week with the group stage of one of the most iconic Esports events already under way.

However, there is also action in the worlds of Call of Duty, Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive and here is a look at the week of Esports ahead.

Monday October 10th

League of Legends: Worlds 2022

There have already been at least two matches played in each group at this year's League of Legends World Championship and the action continues to come thick and fast this week, starting on Monday.

One of the most eye-catching match-ups is the first of the day between LPL giants JD Gaming and arguably Europe's greatest prospects G2 Esports, with JD -450 to come out on top.

Elsewhere, Group D minnows CTBC Flying Oyster could be in for a tough time of it as they take on LCK big guns Gen.G.

Gen.G suffered a surprise defeat to Royal Never Give Up in their opener, but bounced back with victory over 100 Thieves and they next take on Flying Oyster.

Other games taking place on Monday night are Rogue vs Top Esports and DWG KIA vs Evil Geniuses.

Tuesday October 11th

Dota 2: The International Last Chance Qualifier

There are two places left in the group stage of Dota 2's The International this year and which teams fill those slots will be determined by the ongoing Last Chance Qualifier, which continues on Tuesday.

Wednesday October 12th

Dota 2: The International Last Chance Qualifier

On Wednesday, the Last Chance Qualifier for Dota 2's The International concludes, meaning we will have the full line-up for the biggest event in the Esport's calendar.

Thursday October 13th

League of Legends: Worlds 2022

Attention turns back to the League of Legends Worlds on Thursday with the next batch of group fixtures taking place.

By this stage, punters can expect each of the groups to be taking shape and there are once again some crackers to look forward to.

Group A will be back in action after having been absent on day four with Fnatic and Cloud9 locking horns in the opening match of the day, while T1 vs Cloud9 is also sure to be an intriguing tussle between two top sides.
