One of the biggest esports events of 2023 now has a full schedule, in case you wanted to plan ahead to see all the instances of the increased gap between Eastern and Western teams.
League of Legends World Championship 2023 will run from October 10 to November 19, 2023, in South Korea.
Each phase will have different start times and due to the time zone, European and North American fans will likely have trouble viewing the matches without sacrificing sleep.
At least in Europe, Riot made the matches start early in the morning.
