How Worlds Championship Fantasy Works

Act as an Esport coach that has a set budget of $1000. Your goal is now to use that budget to buy the perfect mix of players for your team. Picking players that you think will generate high amounts of points whilst also winning matches and staying alive in the tournament is what you should look for.

You must pick five players, one for each role. You can have up to two players from the same team, forcing you to create a unique team. Each position has a specific point system for a more balanced fantasy experience.

Understanding Fantasy Phases

During the tournament, you will enter three different phases based on where in the contest we are. These phases determine what you can do with your team and when you can do it.

Building Phase

The building phase is the first stage you enter when joining the tournament. It's here where you create your first team for the regular season. The LEC Season Finals will consist of 1 building stage. You can modify your team as much as you like during this period. Your team and your changes will not be shown to other players.

Edit Phase

You will often enter and exit the editing phase during the tournament. During this phase, you can make changes to your team to maximize your score. You can, for example, sell a player for another or give the captain role to another player in your team. The editing phase starts at 03:00 (tournament timezone) and ends 1 hour before the day's first Match.

Game Phase

During this phase, your lineup is locked, and you can't make any more changes. So sit back and cheer on your players. Hopefully, they will do well!

Captain Feature

The captain feature gives a 50% point bonus to the player you have assigned as your Captain. If you want, you can set a Captain before the league starts, and the captain booster will stay on that player until you actively change it to another player. You have one Captain swap every day, but you will lose your Captain switch for the day if your Captain has started a match series. You can only change Captain during the Edit phase!

Captain = 1.5x bonus points

End Notes

The Organizer reserves the right to change the above Point System and described features at its sole discretion and will inform users of any significant changes by publicly announcing them on the website or in community channels.
