LCS Summer Split Playoffs 2017

The 2017 Summer Playoffs of EU LCS and NA LCS are running from August 8th to September 3rd. It has been an exciting LCS Season 7 for players and fans and with Summer Split being in process currently, teams are playing with the Qualification for the League of Legends World Championship 2017 stuck in their heads already. The “easiest” way to qualify for Worlds is to win the LCS Summer Playoffs that will take place right after the Summer Split. But only the six best teams of the Summer Split will be able to participate in the playoffs. In Europe and North America, the two best ranked teams at the end of summer split do not have to play the quarterfinals but will rather start at the semifinals. The team that wins the final of the playoffs will be qualified for Worlds 2017 Group Stage, but every team that at least managed to get into quarterfinals will receive Championship Points (Circuit Points, CP) which are also a way of qualifying for the World Championship.

Prize Money / Salaries


The Championship Points are not the only important thing the teams are fighting for in the Summer Playoffs. The players also have the opportunity to increase their income by getting some of the prize money in addition to their salaries. LCS players and coaches have to at least get paid $12.500 per Split, but with the prize pool having reached $200.000 this year, they could as well double that, depending on their share of the prize money though. The distribution of the prize money in Europe and North America differs, while every participant of the EU LCS gets his share, only the four best teams of the NA LCS receive money.
