LCS 2018 | League of Legends LCS Season 8

LCS 2018 LogoThe first games of the LCS 2018 – Season 8 will be played in January 2018. Both Europe and North America will have 10 professional League of Legends teams competing in the upcoming Spring Split. Compared to the seventh season a lot has changed: the teams in the EU LCS 2018 are no longer divided into two groups before each split. Just like in the NA LCS all games are played in the Best-of-1 format in the regular season of the League of Legends Championship Series. The North American competitors will only fight 9 weeks in the regular season, just as the ones from Europe. You can find the current standings and the upcoming schedule right below as usual. After each of the two LCS splits the Playoffs take place, the rough schedule of the LCS Season 8 looks like this: Spring Split> Spring Playoffs> Summer Split> Summer Playoffs. Between the two splits there will be an international showdown between the best teams of each region: the 2018 Mid-Season Invitational tournament. After the Summer Split Playoffs the most successful teams qualify for the most important tournament of the year – the LoL World Championship 2018 (LoL Worlds). Another way to this event is the qualification by Championship Points, which are earned by placings on top of the standings in the Spring Split season as well as in the Summer Split.
