The 5 Most Shocking Upsets in LoL History
The greatest upset of all-time? Possibly the New York Giants taking down the undefeated Patriots in Super Bowl 42. Perhaps it's Leicester City winning the 2015-2016 Premier League title. But what's the League of Legends equivalent? Shot Callers eSports made their list of the 5 most shocking upsets in LoL history, and it goes like this.
The top spot goes to Albus Nox Luna. A Wild Card team from Russia that took down one of the tournament favourites in Rox Tigers. Historically, wild card teams have been easy wins for the teams from Korea, China, EU and NA but Albus chanced that at Worlds 2016. Going into the game against ROX, ANX had already topped CLG twice and G2 eSports once. They were primed to be the first wild card team to actually get out of the group stage at Worlds. It wasn't the cleanest game. Star ROX Tigers jungler 'Peanut' stole Baron twice to prolong the game but eventually ANX were able to close it and take down the Korean powerhouse. Not only did Albus Nox Luna deliver shocking victories, but it was paired with great speeches by their support player Likkrit.
