LoL Community Showdown Invites European Amateur Players
We’re in the middle of the League of Legends offseason and the majority of major tournaments this year are cancelled due to the pandemic. However, that doesn’t stop the competitive community from hosting action-packed entertainment and delivering interesting and exciting LoL Bitcoin betting odds while we wait for the 2020 Summer Split.
Six League of Legends European Championship (LEC) teams will compete in a month-long LoL Community Showdown set to begin this Saturday, May 16. The twist is the tournament won’t be featuring pro players. Fans and amateur players are welcome to join via Discord to represent their favorite franchises. Qualified players compete against players from other communities in a professional play.
The LoL Community Showdown runs from May to June. Aside from featuring powerhouse franchises, the tournament also includes personalities from the LEC casting desk: Christy “Ender” Frierson and Aaron “Medic” Chamberlain.
The tournament format is quite straightforward. Each organization or franchise chooses its players and squads to compete in the tournament. For a whole month, these amateur players are expected to represent the franchises and become the organization with the best community team in Europe.
Qualified players compete under the banners of Fnatic, Misfits Gaming, Rogue, Excel Esports, MAD Lions, and G2 Esports. Fans who wish to apply for the Community Showdown to represent these franchises can follow the specific instructions set by the organization.
G2 Esports and Misfits Gaming recently released their own online application via Google Form. It requires the participant’s name, rank, ID, and the reason they should be chosen as a candidate. Players can join alone or with their Clash team. G2 Esports released a special promotion for fans who want to apply. A number of participants have a chance to win G2 Essentials Hoodies for their entire squad before the tournament begins.
The community is still waiting for Rogue, Excel Esports, and MAD Lions to release its requirements and application forms. Each club was given the freedom to release their own set of requirements, but they will most likely choose high-ranking players who can perform well with teams and under pressure.
After the LoL Community Showdown, we’ll see these powerhouse European franchises next in June at the 2020 Summer Split.
