We all know that the official world champion currently is DAMWON. They dominated the 2020 Worlds and left no doubt that they are the best. But let's imagine that the World Championship title can be won just by winning against the team who has it.
The original World Championship title went to Fnatic back in 2011. The very first World Championship.
Fnatic beat Against All Authority and became number one in the world.
After about two months, CLG beat Fnatic in IEM Season VI Cologne - Group Stage. And was the first team who took the Unofficial title away from the champs. In the same Group Stage, Team WE beat CLG and the title became theirs. Team WE did not lose that title, because they won the tournament.
But they did not hold it long, less than a month later, they lost against EHOME in WCG China Challenge - Group Stage.
The title was carried over hundreds of times. Actually there were 558 total matches, where the unofficial title was at stake. 184 times it traveled to a new organization.
Currently the Unofficial World Champion is Royal Never Give Up. And they are coming to the Mid-Season Invitational that will be happening very shortly. So the unofficial title might be transferred to some other team!
