Who is EDward Gaming?
EDward Gaming, EDG for short, is a Chinese esports organization. They entered the League of Legends scene all the way back in 2013 and have gone on to win multiple LPL titles. Their first title came in 2014 and their latest was just this summer in 2021.
Not only that, but this was also the team to beat SKT T1 at the inaugural Mid-Season Invitational with a brilliant Morgana counter against Fakers unbeaten LeBlanc. EDG has garnered a huge fan base, but until 2021 they’ve missed a single win in their pocket – the World Championship.
EDward Gaming was always a contender in the LPL, won six championships, but whenever they did make Worlds, they either bombed out of Groups or didn’t make it past the quarterfinals. This changed in 2021, where they made it past Royal Never Give Up in the quarterfinal, but also beat Gen.G and finally ended DAMWON KIA’s dominance.
