Weibo Gaming are the first team to qualify for the 2023 League of Legends World Championship Finals after a spectacular 5-game series against the LPL's second-seed BiliBili Gaming.
Weibo Gaming's top lane, Kang "TheShy" Seung-Lok is celebrating his 24th birthday in style this year, with a nail-biting victory over their LPL rivals, BiliBili Gaming.
The first team of the 2023 League of Legends World Championship has been decided, after WBG managed to win over the much-favored BiliBili Gaming. Now, the team will have to wait and see whether they face T1 or JDG in the Finals in Seoul come November 19, 2023.

While no one on Weibo Gaming is married, the way former pro-player, turned streamer Marc Robert "Caedrel" Lamont cheers on TheShy from his streaming room at T1 headquarters could be considered one, right? The guy even wrote a song for the top lane veteran when WBG managed to qualify for Worlds 2023.
While the team had their downs, like losing an impossible-to-lose game against G2 Esports in the Swiss Stage, things have only looked up from there. Weibo Gaming has had an insane run through the 2023 World Championship, killing off NA and EU at every corner and now doing the same to their fellow country-men.
Blue Side Dominates The Series
Throughout the series, the team on Blue Side took the victory, hammering home the importance of the first pick, which does raise some questions, especially with JDG in the upcoming series against T1 having won the coin toss for side selection and picking Red Side.
It'll be interesting to see who Weibo face next, but if you're a fan of TheShy and want to see him, along with the rest of Weibo Gaming play again, then you'll have to wait until November 19, 2023 to watch the LoL World Championship Finals.
