Champions League is our premier eSports league, featuring some of the best teams outside of Riot sponsored events. It has a unique and interesting history, and is largely the product of an increase in demand for high-level events run by professional, knowledgeable, and motivated organizers. Over time, the average skill level of Champions League has gone up. Initially mid-plat average, it has since evolved from a mid-Plat skill level to high Diamond average teams. We hope this trend of growth continues into season 6.
Our Season 6 Champions League will be invite/application only. After feedback from numerous people and teams, we’re also cutting down the length of the season to 10 weeks. Teams who are invited or who are accepted after the application process will need to pay a $75 fee to join the league. All of the fees will go towards the prize pool. We are anticipating 16 teams in Season 6 for a total prize pool of $1200. While there is no rank cap for Champions, we expect the average rank of teams to be around Diamond 2 or higher.
