EU LCS Rules



These Official Rules (“Rules”) of the League of Legends Championship Series (“LCS”) apply to each of the teams who have qualified to play in the LCS in 2018, as well as their head coach, managers, owners, Starters, Reserve players (collectively “Team Members”), and other employees. The 2018 Season of the LCS will be divided into two halves (“splits”). Each split will consist of three phases (a) a regular season, (b) playoffs, which will be at the conclusion of the regular season, and (c) a promotion/relegation tournament. The top teams from the LCS division in North America, and from other regions around the world will advance to the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. These Rules apply only to official LCS play and not to other competitions, tournaments or organized play of League of Legends (“LoL” or the “game”).

League of Legends Championship Series LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, has established these Rules for the competitive play of LoL in order to unify and standardize the rules used in LCS competitive play.

These Rules are designed solely to ensure the integrity of the system established by the LCS for professional play of LoL and a competitive balance among the teams that play at the professional level. Standardized rules benefit all parties who are involved in the professional play of LoL, including the teams, players and general managers.

These Rules do not restrict competition for players. The terms of engagement between players and teams are left to each of the teams and its players.
