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.
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.
I'm the ACM for LoL.NA. I think one of the best things about E-Sports is the connections and communities that are built around the game. My hope is that we can get E-Sports on the same level of traditional sports in the broader world's minds.
