NA LCS history
The League of Legends Championship Series was created in 2013, split into a pair of conferences according to continent. This competition features ten of the best teams in North America, split into two groups of five. A regular season determines the playoffs, which consists of the top three teams from each division.
Playoffs begin with quarter-finals between the bottom four qualifiers, who fight each other to determine the semi-final matchups. The top two teams of the regular season earn a bye, automatically punching their ticket to the semis.
Winning a spot in the playoffs isn't the only motivation for these teams. Similar to English club football, the bottom three teams of the championship series risk relegation to the challenger series. They must prove themselves in a qualifier tournament to earn another shot at the big leagues.
League of Legends was released in 2009 as a freemium game inspired by Defense of the Ancients, and now it's one of the most popular video games in the world. The competitive scene features one of the largest fanbases in eSports, attracting millions of viewers around the world.
