The 3rd annual edition of the French League of Legends kicks off this Tuesday. Each match will be broadcast live on the Twitch channel “OTP LOL”
This year in 2021, the LFL will bring in 10 teams for the first time, up from 8 teams in the previous two seasons. In addition to the newcomers, Team BDS and Carmine Corp (the top teams in Division 2) are already existing teams in the league last season (Gamers Origin, Solari, Vitality.B, Misfits Premier, Team MCES, GameWord, Izdream and Team LDLC) . The LFL welcomes the 10 best teams in the French scene, competing against each other in two categories, the spring segment and the summer segment, throughout the year.
A section consists of two stages: the regular season and the playoff stage. All teams must play a total of 18 matches (domestic and away) in the winning round to achieve the highest ranking in the regular season. Upon arrival, only the top five teams in the standings will qualify for the playoffs. These take place in the form of a “gantlet”, that is, a system that allows one to increase classification by confronting his direct opponent. The final classification of a division is defined at the end of the playoff stage and each team is awarded championship points according to their positions. At the end of the segment, qualify for the top three European Masters (spring or summer depending on the division played). At the end of the spring and summer segments, the top three teams compete for the title of Champion of France, hosted by Team Misfits Premier. All games are played online and live, except for the final and stages of the playoffs played on a stage with the audience.
The new guys are doing well
This first week of LFL 2021 started with three team matches (January 19, 20 and 21). The Misfits Premier, the French champions, did not give up and kept themselves at the top of the table. Origin Gamers and Easy Dreams start the competition with a certain guarantee, accepting only one defeat. Like the two new teams in this tournament, Team BDS and Carmine Corp will beat Solari’s expectations and create a surprise.
GameWard, Vitality.B, Solari and LDLC OL (competition favorites) have not had a good start to the season with a single win. Finally, Team MCES, last in the standings, failed to prove themselves in the tournament with three defeats.
To follow the rest of the tournament, meet on January 27th and 28th to follow up on the 4th and 5th matches of each of these teams. Sensation and rebellion are perfect.
