The Wild Rift Horizon Cup kicks off on November 13 with the Group Stage of the tournament! Before we share the Horizon Cup schedule, here’s a quick rundown of what Horizon Cup is about. Firstly, the 2021 Horizon Cup is the first global tournament for Wild Rift. Secondly, the tournament features ten teams from regions all around the world. And finally, the international championship will take place over the course of eight days.
The Stars of the Show
As previously mentioned, Horizon Cup 2021 features ten teams that qualified from various major regional tournaments. After that, these ten teams were split into two groups of five: Group A and Group B. Then, they will compete in a single round-robin, where all matches are best-of-3. Finally, the top 3 from each group will advance to playoffs, with the group champions receiving a bye.
Specifically, the five teams in Group A are Da Kun Gaming, KT Rolster, SBTC Esports, Tribe Gaming, and TSM. Meanwhile, in Group B, the teams are eBRO Gaming, Sengoku Gaming, Team Queso, Team Secret, and ThunderTalk Gaming
