League of Legends Worlds 2022 is really heating up, as we are down to only 4 teams competing for the Summoner's Cup. It's hard to argue that these teams remaining aren't the best teams in the World, and any remaining series in guaranteed to be a banger.
Some teams have made it much further than anyone expected at Worlds, and some are right where they've always supposed to have been. Here's all the teams competing in the Lol Worlds Semifinals in Atlanta.

JD Gaming - Worlds Semifinal 1
Having won the LPL in spectacular fashion, few are surprised to see JDG vying for the top spots at Worlds. Having only dropped a single game so far at the tournament, it will take something truly impressive to take down this powerhouse of a team.
JDG's power comes in the fact that any player on their team can carry. We've seen 369 carry on Aatrox, Kanavi on Graves, Yagao on Sylas, and Hope and Missing with Sivir and Yuumi. This team is a quad threat, and you never quite know where it will come from.
T1 - Worlds Semifinal 1
If any team can challenge JDG's dominance, you have to assume it's T1. While Oner tends to excel on more facilitating jungle picks, the rest of the team can all pop off individually at a moment's notice. Faker, Zeus, and Gumayusi/Keria can all step up hugely for the team when the pressure is on.
Zeus will be crucial for T1 in the Semifinal. In what will undoubtedly be the battle for the best top laner at Worlds, or in the World, Zeus is prehaps the only player that can truly go toe to toe with 369. All eyes will be on the top lane when these two teams face off.
GenG - Worlds Semifinal 2
After despatching T1 in clean 3-0 fashion in the LCK Finals, GenG is another team many expected to see at this stage at Worlds. GenG is unique in the Semifinals, as a team that will happily take early game losses, in order to scale for late game.
Chovy and Ruler are two players you certainly don't want to see scale if you're on the opposite side of the rift. Chovy will happily hit 11cs per minute, whether he's playing Azir or Yone, and Ruler will not be far behind. DRX will have to favour chaos to break this deathball of a team apart.
DRX - Worlds Semifinal 2
DRX is a team that fans have underestimated from the get go. After their undefeated Worlds play-ins run, many still expected them to fail in groups, but they broke out of a tough group. What's more, they reverse-swept the reigning World Champions EDG, and have more than earned their semifinals spot.
Zeka is no doubt spearheading the DRX run, his 10/2/4 Sylar performance closing out the series for DRX against EDG. Deft too has stepped up to his full potential. On his 7th Worlds appearance, he is one of the best players never to win Worlds, and is looking to set that right this year.
