Bilibili Gaming (BLG) has punched their ticket to the 2024 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) in spectacular fashion, clinching a spot after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Top Esports (TES) in the LPL Spring Split upper bracket final.

The decisive moment came in the final game of the series, courtesy of an audacious move by BLG’s top laner, Bin.

The Rollercoaster Series and Edge of the Seat Moments

The series saw both teams trading blows, with neither side willing to yield an inch. However, a pattern emerged, highlighting the advantage of playing on the blue side of the map. Despite BLG maintaining a slight lead in the fifth and final game, it was a daring play that ultimately sealed the fate of TES.

The Bold Backdoor Maneuver

As the tension mounted and both teams vied for control, BLG’s Bin executed a move that left fans and commentators speechless. While TES focused on securing the Chemtech Drake soul, Bin seized the opportunity to execute a daring backdoor maneuver.

The Decisive Moment

With precision and speed, Bin’s Twisted Fate swiftly navigated past enemy lines, bypassing TES’s defenses to launch a surprise assault on their base. Despite the outer turret already being weakened, Bin’s attack-speed Twisted Fate tore through the inhibitor and razed the Nexus’ towers within a mere 10 seconds.

Celebration and Qualification

With the Nexus crumbling behind him, BLG erupted into celebration as they secured their berth at MSI. This victory not only solidified their status as a formidable force in the LPL but also positioned them as contenders on the international stage.

Looking Ahead to MSI

BLG’s qualification for MSI marks their first international event of the season, set to take place in China later this May. As they prepare to showcase their skills on home turf, BLG aims to make a lasting impression and vie for glory against the world’s best teams.

Potential Repeat of History

History may repeat itself as JD Gaming (JDG) and TES battle it out in the lower bracket final to determine the second LPL representative at MSI. With JDG favored to advance and potentially face BLG in the Grand Finals, the stage is set for a rematch of last year’s showdown.

BLG’s daring backdoor play not only secured their MSI berth but also showcased their resilience and strategic prowess. As they gear up for the international stage, BLG aims to continue their momentum and leave a lasting legacy in the annals of League of Legends esports.


The decision to shift Major IV to LAN without a live audience underscores the dynamic nature of esports events and the challenges faced by leagues in adapting to changing circumstances. As the CDL continues to evolve, proactive measures and collaborative efforts are essential to ensure the success and sustainability of future tournaments.
