  • Betcris.com The most prestigious League of Legends event of the year came to a close last week in Incheon, but that doesn’t mean the action has stopped just yet. Invictus Gaming’s win at the World Championships was the first ever for a Chinese team on the biggest stage in League of Legends. After a year where either Royal Never Give Up or IG won every major international event, there is plenty of interest in how LPL teams play League. That has led to added intrigue for NEST, one of the offseason tournaments in China, and many will be watching some of the teams that we didn’t get to see on the international stage duke it out.   More

  • Betcris.com The most anticipated eSports event of the year is finally here. After a week of play-in matches to determine the final few spots at the League of Legends World Championship, the main event will kick off this week.

They are considerable underdogs in their quest to do that though.   More

  • Betcris.com Eight teams are vying for the last four spots in the League of Legends World Championship main event on October 10. For the teams that make it, they get to stay in Korea for another week and will test themselves against the best in the world for a shot at glory and a huge first-place prize.   More

  • Betcris.com Before the main event gets underway on October 10, the Play-In Stage will determine the last four teams at the League of Legends World Championship. These 12 teams are broken into four groups and after a double round-robin, the lowest team will be automatically eliminated.   More

Matches start this week and will be broadcast on Twitch and MLG.  More
