Season 4 - Weekly ContentWe are proud to announce our weekly content schedule for our upcoming season! One of our main goals coming into this season is to improve our content structure and schedule to provide more background information and exposure for our participating schools, teams, and players. In an effort to accomplish this, we will have two different types of content published regularly here on our site:
Get to know our teams
This segment will feature a list of answers to various questions from members of our teams. The questions will be aimed at letting the players show off what they love about their school, their team, and League of Legends in general, as well as letting us get to know them better individually. We`d love to have players share and learn about each other and their schools in a setting that otherwise doesnât necessarily offer much of an opportunity to do so.
Match of the week
Our second weekly feature will be a match of the week. Every week there will be a slew of great matches, and we want to be able to review some of them and offer some highlights and analysis of the gameplay. Weâre going to be prioritizing some of the closer games and higher ranked matchups, so if you think your matchup fits the bill, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a game replay and the names of the teams.
We are very excited to provide you all with this content in the upcoming season, so be sure to check it out every week!

Premier League Qualifier 1 Postponed
Premier League Qualifier - Weekend 1 Information
Brackets for the qualifier will be handled by Battlefy. You will be receiving an email before the tournament begins asking you to register an account (Note: If you participated in the North American Collegiate Open this spring, you should already have an account with them). Battlefy uses Tournament Code to organize the players into the correct lobby and report scores and stats. For more information about how to use the Tournament Code feature in League of Legends, please watch the following 2 minute video: http://youtu.be/vDGg__1UfGY?t=20s
The tournament will be running using a Swiss-style system. In every round, you will play a Best-of 1 match against an opponent of similar (but usually the same) record so far in the tournament (for example, teams with 2 wins and 1 loss, or 2-1, will play against other 2-1 teams). This matchmaking system is to ensure no one will be completely eliminated from a single loss. The five highest ranked teams in each region will be given a birth into the Premier League. If your team does not qualify this weekend, we are hosting another qualifier on October 25th and 26th. Registration for the second qualifier will open following the conclusion of the first qualifier.
Throughout the event, we will have administrators online ready to field any questions you may have. To ask questions, you can submit a support ticket (http://www.ivylol.com/support/) or ask questions on our subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/ivylol).

Premier League - NACC Qualification
The Premier League will feature the top 10 teams from each of our four regions, giving us 40 total teams in our top division.
Qualifiers for spots in the Premier League will be held on the weekends of
October 18th October 25th and November 1st. Each region will have its own tournament each weekend, and the top five finishers in each tournament will grab a spot in our Premier League. The sign-ups for these qualifiers will be unlimited and each school may sign-up as many teams as they can fill (players may not be on multiple rosters). However, only one team per school will be added to the Premier League. The top 5 finishers from Qualifier 1 will be removed from Qualifier 2, as they will have already secured a spot in the Premier League.
Our regular season will last 9 weeks, allowing every team in each region to matchup with the other 9 teams in its region. The first week of the season will be the weekend of November 1st, and the regular season will conclude on the weekend of January 17th. The top 4 teams from each region will face off in a playoff against the other teams in their own region, with the winner of each region securing its IvyLoL bid into the NACC.

Premier League Qualifiers Weekend 2 will open for registration after the first weekend is complete.
The Open League will have an unlimited number of sign-ups and is open to all teams that do not qualify for the Premier League. Signups will be available now for teams uninterested in participating in the Premier League qualifiers, but also will be available after the qualifiers for teams that failed to qualify.
The regular season will also be 9 weeks long, beginning on the weekend of November 1st, and ending on the weekend of January 17th. The matchmaking will be determined in a Swiss system bracket so your opponent will always be one in your region with a similar record. Playoffs will follow for the top teams in each region.
