Whereas in the LCS EU three of the qualifiers made it into the LoL Pro League (LCS Summer Promotion EU 2013), in the North American League 2 of the 4 Pro Teams could defend their spots in the highest League of Legends League.
New to the LCS are Quantic Gaming and Velocity Esports who defeated compLexity and Team MRN in a best of five series. The two other endangered teams Team Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming were able to defend their spots in the LCS.
The Summer Promotion was a great event for the fans, mainly because the amateur teams showed a few new tactics and put a lot of pressure with them on the Pro Teams. To the surprise of all, Velocity Esports for example picked Ezreal for jungle in their second match against Team MRN who was able to land a lot of successful ganks and won the game for them.
