With the 2015 League of Legends season now officially underway, we are now back into the swing of “Elo Hell”, college scholarships and professional gamers taking hold of Twitch.TV yet again. What’s in store for the 2015 season? Here’s a look ahead.
Smack dab in the middle of your freshly updated League of Legends client, the announcement for the League of Legends 2015 World Championship is now ready. Being held in Europe this year, as it has been in Korea and in North America in seasons past, League Championship Series professional players will make their way around national circuits. Hosting tournaments in stadiums, major video game expo across the nation and more, your LCS heroes will have a chance at a million dollar prize this year yet again.
Continuing on their pattern of success, Riot Games will host a Group Stage, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final showdown to be held in different cities within Europe for this World Championship, but right now is your best chance to compete for yourself. As the League season begins, ranked competitors who have worked their way up into the “Challenger” tier of play beyond Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and the all-new “Master” tier, can earn a spot on a ranked professional team through a non-traditional draft.
If you have the will and the motivation, head on over to LeagueofLegends.com and get started today, because your dreams of becoming a professional gamer don’t have to die just yet.
