ImageThe biggest tournament to hit the League of Legends scene and one of the most monumental in E-sports history is drawing close. The format for this tournament has just been released.

If you're like me you have been doing all you can to kill time in anticipation for the tournament. Endless hours of SoloQ (that Janna skin) and watching live streams of online tournaments, scrims, or just high-level SoloQ all just to pump yourself up for this. A two million dollar tournament that will be watched the world over by gamers of all kind, unified in one thing: Our Love of The Game. Today we are one step closer to that glorious day.

The tournament schedule has been announced. As we mentioned previously, 4 of the 5 regional champions received a bye from the Round Robin portion of the tournament. The remaining 8 teams have now been placed in to groups which will be a series of Best-of-1's. The two top teams from each group with advance to the quarterfinals for a Single-Elimination Best-of-3 style tournament, with the finals being Best-of-5.

Group A:

Group B:

The official Riot post can be found here.

Thoughts on who will win the group stages? The whole tournament? Which is the 'Group of Death'? What do you think of the format? Let me know in the comments below.

*It should be noted this tournament will be played on a hotfix patch and both Rengar and Syndra are perma-banned.
