Total amount won much higher!
The total amount won must still be determined. Developer Riot Games initially said that at least 2.25 million dollars (more than 2 million euros) would be paid to participants of the tournament, but due to various crowdfunding campaigns and sponsors, the final amount is always much higher. In 2018 there would have been played for nearly 6.5 million dollars.

Various analysts hoped in advance that G2 Esports would win the victory. For the first time in history, the team would have won all prizes within one calendar year
The final was held in Paris. This year the megatrophy therefore came in a suitcase from the French fashion house Louis Vuitton, which had designed the product especially for the event.
