16 teams, including Cloud 9 and Team Liquid Academy, have been invited to compete for their share of a $10, 000 prize pool. These teams are joined by new Challenger talent–some of whom you may see on the LCS stage in the future. Teams will compete in four weeks of round-robin pool play, followed by a three-week playoff bracket.
The round robin will begin on November 3rd and end on November 25th, with games being played and broadcast on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, starting at 3:30pm PST. The playoffs will kick off on December 3rd. We crown our champions on December 6th.
