Premier League Qualifiers
Welcome to the League of Legends Season 3 Premier League Qualifiers. Over the next three days we will determine the top 23 (Top 8 from Premier League S2 and 1st place from S2 Open League) collegiate teams that will go on to compete in the prestigious Premier League over the course of the semester. All competing teams coordinators should have received an email from challonge.com asking them to sign up. Here are some quick reminders concerning the format of the event.
1. Matches must be played at their scheduled time, teams are not allowed to move their matches for any reason as this halts the tournament from advancing.
2. All matches are Best of 1 played on Summoners Rift in Tournament Draft. The higher seed (lower number) has choice of side.
3. To find your opponents team page go to www.ivylol.com/qualifiers and search for your opponent listed on the brackets.
4. If you can't get ahold of your opponent after 15 minutes, take a screenshot of you and your team all in lobby and your opponents coordinator on the invite list. Make sure the time is visible to indicate that it is 15 minutes past the round start.
5. If you have any questions, the best way to get a hold of IvyLoL admins is by using the in-game chat channel "IvyLoL". If you are having trouble reaching us, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
6. ROUND 8 WILL NOT BE PLAYED
IvyLoL Season 3: The Chaos Returns September 20th!
Season 3 of IvyLoL is finally upon us! We return with our Premier and Open League format for competitive and more casual gamers alike. Our Premier League will be comprised of 32 teams this season; the top eight teams that qualified from Season 2, and 24 new teams that will qualify via our Premier League Qualifiers. Registration for the Qualifiers ends September 19th, 2013 at 11:59 EDT, so be sure to get your team signed-up! Teams that do not qualify for Premier will automatically be moved into the Open League, and teams interested in the Open League who DO NOT register for the Qualifiers must sign up by the end of September 27th.
Both Leagues will enjoy seven weeks of fun, competitive games against their fellow students across North America starting September 29th. Each League will also end the season with single elimination playoffs, and the top Premier League teams will battle it out at our LIVE finals for $5,000 in cash and the chance to be crowned IvyLoL Season 3 champions.
If you have any questions, IvyLoL President, Trey Sweeney and Vice President, Michael Sherman will be hosting an Ask Me Anything on the new collegiate program subreddit, /r/lolcollegiateprogram, on August 28, 2013 starting at 8:30 EST (LINK TO AMA). If you have any further questions, please feel free to direct them to submit them on our support page.
