Playoffs
The difference this year is largely on the accession to this prestigious competition: the world.

In order to qualify, everything will be played on the summer playoffs during which the six best teams of the European scene will compete for their place for the World Cup.

As you will have understood, the regional qualification disappears completely.

Championship points now define the placement of teams in the playoff tree, their allocation has also been somewhat modified.

As for the format itself, we note the appearance of a looser bracket, an element very little used in high-level competitions on League of Legends.

So here’s what this year’s playoffs will look like:

Week 1

Game 1: The first-ranked team chooses its opponent between the teams that finish 3rd and 4th

Match 2: The team ranked second plays the team ranked 3rd or 4th, the one that was not chosen in Game 1

Game 3: Teams ranked 5th and 6th face off
Week 2

Game 4: The weakest losing team (regular season) between games 1 and 2 plays the winner of Game 3

Game 5: The winners of Game 1 and 2 face off; The winner qualifies for the grand final

Game 6: The winner of Game 4 plays the strongest losing team (regular season) between the losers of Games 1 and 2

Week 3

Game 7: The winner of Game 6 plays the loser of Game 5

Game 8: The winner of Game 7 moves on to the grand final to face the winner of Game 5
