The 2022 LEC season will kick off two-weeks into January. Some teams are looking extremely strong with brand new rosters, while we still don't know what to think of some other ones, but what we do know is that we're ready for the LEC fiesta that is to come.
Since rebranding as the LEC, the European League of Legends Championship has become one of the most viewed and popular pro-leagues. The casting and production is through the roof and so we're going to check out which teams we will be watching come January 14, 2022.
