From the beta announcement:
"With Fantasy LCS, you’re the team manager responsible for assembling a squad to decimate the opposition. You’ll draft a dream team of NA and EU LCS pros, fielding a starting line-up that competes head-to-head each week against your friends.
Now’s the time to start scouting players for your team and get ready for that draft! The Fantasy LCS Beta launches soon. Click here to learn more about Fantasy LCS!"
Once the Fantasy LCS launches, you and your friends can create teams and draft players to create a powerhouse team that you control! Here's a rundown of all what we know so far:
- You can have up to 4, 6, or 8 teams in a single drafting pool
- You have ONE minute (real time) to select your picks, so be quick and thorough!
- You MUST have a complete team (Top/Jungle/ADC/Mid/Support) in addition to:
- 1 Flex player (any position)
- 1 Team (Alliance, Cloud 9)
- 3 Alternate players who can sub for a starter
- Only supports NA/EU LCS at the moment
- You choose who to play, drop, swap, or bench every week
