The 2023 League of Legends World Championship has come to an end with T1 winning, but which champs are the players going to pick for their Worlds skins?
The 2023 League of Legends World Championship has ended. T1 managed an insanely dominant victory over Weibo Gaming, earning the org their fourth Worlds title with Faker at the helm.
So, now that the games are over and we all have to wait for the 2024 season, let's check out which champs the T1 players are going to choose.
Worlds 2023: Which Champions Could Get Skins?
Not every champion is able to receive a world championship skin, unfortunately. There are some criteria that has to be met, which is that the players had to have played the champion during the tournament. So we have to check out the champions players used to determine who is able to receive a Worlds 2023 skin.
T1 are the 2023 League of Legends World Champions. They've managed to win every single match and went through the LPL gauntlet, dropping only one game, which was against JDG.
Viable Champions For T1 Players
|Top Lane||Choi "Zeus" Woo-je|
|Jungle||Moon "Oner" Hyeon-jun|
|Mid Lane||Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok|
|Bot Lane||Lee "Gumayusi" Min-hyeong|
|Support||Ryu "Keria" Min-seok|
Which Champions Might Be Picked
With the list being pretty long, there are some questions for which champions the players are going to pick, especially in the bot lane where Keria and Guma even have overlapping champions.
Top Lane: Zeus
Zeus was named the 2023 League of Legends Worlds Finals MVP. This means he is also going to be getting a prestige skin for his champion pick. Now, the most obvious champion, while not having been played during the finals is Jayce.
It's one of his favorite picks in the game and sounds similar to his in-game name so it would be a great champion pick for Zeus. Though his Yone was pretty impressive in the finals and semi-finals.
Oner has been one of the most criticized players on the T1 roster, but he showed up during the World Championship. Pulling out his favorite and most comfortable Lee Sin in the finals was also insane, so we wouldn't be surprised if he didn't pick Lee Sin for his Worlds skin.
Mid Lane: Faker
Faker only played five champions throughout the tournament. Azir already has a Worlds SKT T1 skin – albeit from Easyhoon – so we believe it'll be a different champion.
The most sense would be Ahri, since Faker has stated before that he does want an Ahri World Championship skin. So we predict him to pick Ahri as his champion.
Bot Lane: Gumayusi
This is where things become tricky. Gumayusi did pull out the Draven, which is one of his best champions and favorite picks. But we also cannot forget just how dominant Guma has been on Varus, which would be another great choice.
Keria has such a wide champion pool, but if he doesn't get a Tahm Kench Worlds skin, then I will riot... he's known for his engage Tahm Kench and is just such a great Tahm player that it just seems like he has to get a skin for the big catfish.
