The EU LCS officially kicks off on the Jan. 19, and the teams will also be using a brand new format.
Matches will now take place over the course of three days, instead of two, from Thursday to Saturday, with Sundays becoming a flex option for additional EU LCS matches and challenger matches to be broadcast from Riot’s studio in Berlin.
The news is a welcome addition to the format, with many believing that two streams, which were used last year, devalued the viewing experience as people had to decide which match to watch over the other at times to get a better experience.
I definitely am excited to welcome the first of many changes to the EU LCS. All of these changes can be read about here in greater detail.
