Esports News – Riot Games rebrands and restructures European League of Legends Championship Series (EU LCS) to LoL European Championship (LEC). The move was due to the organization’s decision to start a new franchise-style model for the European esports league’s new teams of the 2019 season, following the format of NA LCS last year.
The LEC lists a total of 10 organizations:
Old franchises from the EU LCS (Fnatic, G2 Esports, Misfits, Schalke 04, Splyce, and Team Vitality) will retain their slot at the next tournament for an entry fee of €8 million. The new teams, consisting of Excel Esports, Origen, SK Gaming, and Rogue, are required to pay €10 million to get their spots.
The structure for LEC features revenue sharing, so there will be a minimum player salary increase from €24 thousand to €60 thousand yearly and other infrastructure investments in each player’s development. Moreover, the tier-two developmental or academy league from NA LCS will not be included. All regional competitions are handled by third-party organizations.
The new LoL league seeks to partner with other businesses outside esports. Major League Soccer, FIFA’s esports league in North America, is now preparing for the expansion. They will join EA Sports in 2019 with three new teams from Atlanta United, D.C. United, FC Cincinnati. Aside from the main tournament for LEC, the expansion teams will also compete in the eMLS cup and League series events.
The tournaments will be hosted by the LA Galaxy and FC Dallas, two top-rank American professional soccer franchises. Players from the 22 eMLS teams will participate in both events so they have two chances to execute impressive performances. The final result will determine the seeding for the 2019 eMLS Cup.
The LEC officially starts on January 18, 2019. The organization will continue to host its games in Berlin and introduces a newly franchised league that’s different from its North American counterpart. The new logo, a symbol representing two halves of a broken crown, will now stand as the official branding image of the tournament.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
