Riot Games has just wrapped up its first Forge of Champions tournament between top UK teams, and it was Misfits Academy who took the title to secure a spot at the EU Masters competition, winning 3-2 in the final match to get the winner's share of the £50,000 prize pot.
Their grand final opponents were Diabolus, and although Misfits started well to dominate the first two games, Diabolus fought back to level the score, meaning it was a fitting final match for the first tournament.
"Forge of Champions really shows the strength of the UK League of Legends esports scene," said Mo Fadl, Head of Esports at Riot Games UK. "The tournament marks the start of an exciting three years as we look to create a structure that will see hundreds of new teams rise through the ranks. Every country is different in terms of player needs and we've learnt a lot over the last few months and have taken onboard all feedback for 2019. We'll continue to work closely with our players to develop something meaningful that helps the UK to thrive."
