Team Liquid just won the LCS Spring Split in North America, while G2 Esports absolutely destroyed Origen to win over in the LEC.

But don’t worry. The action isn’t over. There is plenty of League of Legends action to be had this summer. And you can bet that BetOnline will have odds on the upcoming tournaments so that you can get fully immersed.

Summer Splits

So we would be remiss to leave out the Summer Splits that start in June. for the LEC, the location will be Germany. And for the the LCS, the USA will hold the events.

In the North American League of Legends Championship Series, the format for Summer 2019 is 10 teams in a double round robin. The matches are best of one and the top 6 teams qualify for the Summer Playoffs, with the top two getting a bye and advancing straight to the semis.The LEC is the same, except the top two teams get a bye to round-3.

Currently, out of North America, TEam Liquid leads with 90 points, followed by Team SoloMid with 70. Over in Europe, G2 Esports has 90, while Origen sits with 70. But Fnatic is also in the mix with 50.

But according to the lol.gamepedia, SK Telecom T1 is the points-leader for the 2019 Season World Championship Cycle with 90 and Griffen, the Spring Split winner with 70 (I guess they do things differently in Korea).
