This year's Mid-Season Invitational has come to an end, with Chinese team JD Gaming being crowned as the 2023 champions.
MSI 2023 results
JD Gaming have emerged as the MSI 2023 champion through their 3-1 victory over Bilibili Gaming in the May 21 Grand Final.
That's despite a strong performance from Bilibili elsewhere in the tournament, with the team having worked their way up through the tournament's lower bracket, having already lost to JD Gaming in the Upper Bracket Semifinals.
Bilibili quickly recovered after that, however, and went on to defeat (and eliminate) the likes of G2 Esports, Gen.G Esports and even T1 in order to make it through to the Grand Final.
But they were ultimately unable to take their revenge on JD Gaming, who got their hands on the MSI 2023 trophy via a perfect run through the tournament, having failed to concede even a single series - earning 3-0 victories over both Golden Guardians and Bilibili Gaming, before claiming a 3-2 win over T1 in the Upper Bracket Final.
As the MSI 2023 champions, JD Gaming has been awarded with $50,000 out of the $250,000 prize pool, while Bilibili Gaming has received $37,500. The full results (and prize pool split) are as follows.
|5th-6th||G2 Esports, Cloud9||$20,000|
|7th-8th||MAD Lions, Golden Guardians||$15,000|
|12th-13th||GAM Esports, DetonatioN FocusMe||$5,000|
