Da Kun Gaming Win Wild Rift: Horizon Cup!

Posted by George Wong on November 21, 2021


It's been over a week since the Wild Rift: Horizon Cup began and the inaugural world championship for League of Legends: Wild Rift came to a conclusion on Saturday night. Just like Worlds 2021, this year's tournament belonged to China, with the difference being two Chinese teams in the grand final instead of one. Congratulations to Da Kun Gaming for taking the win! The squad played immaculately during the whole event, dropping only 4 games without losing a series. Yk, Huiba, You, Wind and Emo are your very first Wild Rift world champions.

DKG vs TTG (top to bottom)

The grand final was a thrilling best-of-seven against fellow countrymen, ThunderTalk Gaming but it never looked like the latter had a chance, with DKG proving they had TTG's number even though both teams had never met before. While DKG has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with, things do look promising for TTG - being a relatively new team, second place at the world championship is no joke. Well played to feibai, Chris, Z, Azure and S12K for coming this far. Both of these teams will be favourites heading into the next season of competitive Wild Rift, so keep an eye out for them in the Chinese scene.

DKG won the grand final with a 4-2 score and their support player, Emo (not to be confused with Invictus Gaming's player "?") won the player of the series award for his fantastic gameplay. He knew where to be at exactly the right time. The team walked away from the tournament $100,000 richer, and title of "best in the world". With the Horizon Cup concluded, we can't wait to see what's in store for us next. Make sure you stay tuned to eGG Network for all the latest news and updates on Wild Rift esports!
