Soon after the holiday season, the new LoL competitive season will begin. Players are rearing to start their new campaign and there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that LCS Spring 2019 is going to be insanely good. Those of you who have followed the previous LCS tournaments might already know that the North American LoL Seasonal tournament changed its name from NA LCS to just LCS (following the European change to LEC).
There have been changes to the team formats as well (akin to those over at LEC) but we’ll cover that a bit later. In any case, fans are excited for LCS Spring 2019 to start and so are Esports betting enthusiasts. It’s always interesting when a new season starts because the bookies have to work extra hard as well.
There’s also a great incentive for the teams to achieve success too; a spot in the LoL 2019 Mid-Season Invitational (MSI 2019) is not too shabby at all. On top of that, the team that accumulates the most Championship Points will get a spot in the LoL 2019 World Championship (LoL Worlds 2019) as well.
This all sounds great but what about the tournament itself? Well, don’t go anywhere because the next section includes various tournaments facts that will come useful!

LCS Spring 2019 | Tournament Format
LCS Spring 2019’s format is the same as LEC’s format. Basically, there are 10 teams fighting for position during the group stage. The higher the position, the better the rewards. The bottom 4 teams will not receive anything – no Championship Points, no cash prize. So it’s up to the teams to do a stellar job. 18 matches for each of them means plenty of action for spectators and players alike. It also means that the tournament will last a long time; 4 months of constant action!
After the group stage is concluded, 6 of the best teams proceed to the playoffs. Two of the best teams from the group stage will get seeded into the semifinals with the remaining 4 participating from the quarterfinals. The team that wins the spring playoff stage will qualify for MSI 2019, but they also get 90 Championship Points (which brings them ever closer to LoL Worlds 2019).

Championship Points, Playoffs and Worlds 2019 Qualifiers
This new season of LCS brings us changes to the well-known league system. Championship Points are vital in the progression and success of a team. The LCS 2019 Spring Playoffs will give the best teams a chance to qualify for League of Legends MSI 2019 and LoL Worlds 2019! Basically, the better a team performs, the more Championship Points they'll earn (plus, getting a ‘free' spot at Worlds' and MSI 2019 is motivation enough!)
As with any major League of Legends tournament, the livestream will be available here as well. When LCS 2019 starts, you'll be able to watch the action either over Twitch or Riot Games' official website. Be sure to not miss any action because this new competitive season is going to be a blast!
