Mexico's top League of Legends team Rainbow7 has been preparing to take on other regions for the upcoming World Championships.
The team is scheduled to compete in the Play-In stage on 25th September for a chance to get into the Group stage. Since arriving in Shanghai, the dedicated R7 players have practiced every day - with a few of them even reaching Master rank.
R7's Jungler Brandon Joel "Josedeodo" Villegas shared on Twitter that he reached Master rank on the Chinese server on Thursday. He is one of the first players from the Play-In groups to reach this rank, showing his dedication and hard work for Worlds. Within those games, he played against retired JD Gaming ADC Gu "imp" Seung-bin's team, scoring 19 kills and 3 deaths. His most popular champions are Lee Sin, Kha'Zix, Rengar, and Graves.

Following along Josedeodo is R7's Support player Facundo "Shadow" Cuello. He also hit Master rank a few hours after Josedeodo. The 20-year old Support player has a track record of reaching 2nd and 3rd place for big matches, so it is no surprise that he's also working hard. The Argentinian native most commonly plays Alistar, Thresh, and Leona, but it seems he's been trying out other champs for his China games.
Fans are super excited over R7 playing so well right before Worlds. The team currently has 54,600 followers on Twitter, and consistently keep their fans hyped up. One commentator stated: "It's been a long time since I felt the hype for any LLA team as I'm feeling it for you, guys.
R7 is looking forward to joining the rest of the regions for the Play-In stage on 25th September. Last year, Isurus Gaming took the stage at Worlds, but lost to Hong Kong Attitude, preventing them from moving into Groups.
