The play-in stage at the 2018 League of Legends World Championship has concluded, and this week, the main event will begin with the group stage in Busan.

Today, after the final best-of-five series at the end of play-ins, the final four teams of the opening stage were sorted into their groups—and North American fans aren’t going to be terribly happy. EDG, the absolute best team of the play-in stage, was sorted into Team Liquid’s group and Cloud9 was placed into the “Group of Death” with RNG and Gen.G.

Here are the groups for the 2018 Worlds group stage.
