Fnatic and Invictus Gaming have advanced to the League of Legends World Championship final after convincing victories against Cloud9 and G2 Esports respectively.

Fnatic dismantled C9 in a 3-0 sweep. The North American underdogs looked outclassed in nearly every role, with Fnatic stars, Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau and Rasmus “Caps” Winther impressing. Invictus Gaming also pulled off the 3-0 sweep against G2 Esports, with mid-laner Song “Rookie” Eui-jin putting on a show for his home fans.

With their win against C9, the European organization returns to the world championship final for the first time in seven years. Invictus Gaming, on the other hand, has never made it past the group stages at the world championship.

This will also be the first time in six years that a non-Korean team will take home the Summoner’s Cup. For the past six years, Korean teams have dominated the League of Legends World Championship, but this season they had their worst showing yet. This tournament has shown that Korea is mortal and they can be defeated.

Fnatic and Invictus Gaming face off against each other on Nov. 3 at 3:30 a.m. EST. The match can be seen on the official Riot Games Twitch and YouTube channels.
