MSI 2023 is heating up with the next round of best of five series. There is nonstop action at the tournament with games almost taking place daily, which has some fans wondering, and even concerned, over the 2023 League of Legends World Championship format this year. 

At the start of the year, Riot revealed format changes to their two biggest international tournaments, to include more Bo3 and Bo5 series, something fans have been begging for. Now that viewers got their first taste of constant best-of series action, they're worried for Worlds 2023. 

Worlds 2023: Will The Long Wait Between Matches Ruin The Hype?

A thread on Reddit has gone viral in which players worry over the format at the 2023 League of Legends World Championship. In it players state that they've enjoyed the non-stop action of MSI 2023 and are worried how Worlds 2023 will pan out once players have to go back to waiting an entire week for a best of five series. 

Worlds 2023 is going to have a brand-new format with a Swiss stage which will feature multiple best-of-three and best-of-five series, but the second part of the tournament will feature the usual single elimination brackets we've come to know so well. 

Some players said that they're happy with games only being on weekends, due to their jobs, but most did state that they wish the games wouldn't be spaced out so broadly. 

At least Riot did listen to the community and made some changes away from the constant best-of-one format which has plagued their international League of Legends events throughout the last few years. 

It's also unlikely for Riot to make any more changes, since they've stated on multiple occasions that they want to keep the single elimination brackets at the World Championship. So, we're going to have to wait five or six days between matches for a while still.
