In just a matter of days, the League of Legends Championship Series will make its return as the last major competitive region to begin its nine-week spring split.
Week 1 kicks off Jan. 26, and each of the 10 returning teams will step on stage after having seen several roster changes during the off-season. The teams will play 18 best-of-one matches over the course of the nine weeks before the top six teams face off in the spring playoffs at the end of the split.
The first match of the season will see Team Liquid, winners of both the 2018 spring and summer splits, face off against Cloud9, the first North American team to reach the World Championship semifinals. During the off-season, Team Liquid acquired Cloud9’s former star mid laner Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen, and the rivalry between the two teams, as a result, is sure to make for a match fans won’t want to miss.
