How League of Legends 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.
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 Spring Split will consist of three building stages for each of the tournament stages. 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.
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.
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!
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
Selling a player
The SELL token enables participants to sell a player in their lineup and buy a new one. This action can only be performed during EDIT, consuming your SELL token. When selling a player, you will be refunded the same amount as previously paid when you purchased the player. You will keep the points of your traded players for the remainder of the tournament, and they will be displayed in the section "Sold players". We encourage you to be strategic with your SELL tokens since you only have 1 for every tournament stage. Your sell token will "refresh" at every building phase.
Point padding is given to teams that qualify further in the tournament and thus skip matches. We want players rewarded for picking the best teams, so we have point padding. If your team misses a game, they will most likely receive an average point padding based on their tournament performance. This point padding is usually given when the Match they skipped is being played. Static point padding (+6) is only given to teams if they start the tournament deeper in the bracket.
New: Your player must have at least played 1 match in your lineup to earn point padding, meaning you can't buy players solely for their point padding anymore.
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.
