On Jatt’s Request: Major Region’s Group Stage Performances (Worlds)

On the most recent episode of The Crackdown featuring TL Jatt, the 4 major regions’ group stage performances at worlds were briefly discussed. Jatt mentioned he was interested in a more detailed breakdown of each region’s win rates. I’ve attempted to deliver. For each major region I found their overall win rate, win rates against the other major regions, and their tiebreaker performance. I’ve included only group stage games from 2014 Worlds onwards.

Notes

  • This only includes main-event, group stage games starting from 2014. Play-ins and playoffs are not included.
  • Tiebreakers are against the entire field, not just major regions.
  • Overall win rate is against all teams, not just Major regions.
  • LMS was not included.
  • Win Rate doesn’t indicate quality of play. I’m using the terms best/worst strictly in the context of win rate in this post.

Mildly Interesting Facts

  • China was winless against Korea in groups for 3 years straight. The drought ended when RNG beat Samsung in 2017 on Matchday 3.
  • NA’s best year against major regions (2016) was undercut by 3 losses against the CIS and LMS region.
  • The now dissolved LMS region still has the best win rate against Korea: 0.313.
  • EU has been involved in the two longest games between the four major regions. FNC vs OMG 2014: OMG won in 71:34. TSM vs OG in 2015: OG won in 55:27.
  • 2018, Korea’s worst year, was conversely China, and EU’s best year.
