Despite the result of 2: 0, this one was also extremely even, so the record number is not surprising.

It is worth mentioning that both figures are ignored by Chinese observers, as data from China is simply very difficult to collect. This can be extremely important in the case of Worlds 2021 as League of Legends is extremely popular in the country and after EDward Gaming’s triumph, fans of the game took to the streets to celebrate.
