2019 Recreational League 1 Registration Now Open!

SKL Esports is happy to officially open registration for our first of back to back Recreational League of Legends Leagues in 2019! That’s right. We are officially committing to back to back rec leagues, with more information to follow regarding our plans for Autumn League of Legends! Stay tuned to our social media for details, or if you aren’t apart of our discord, check it out at discord.gg/sklesports

This is recreational league is focused on a fun and entertaining experience above all else, and helping to develop new friendships and teams! We want everyone who loves League of Legends to be able to play in this league, regardless of skill level.

Registration

Don’t have a team? Have a few friends but not enough for a full team? No problem! We are allowing for free-agent registration and a free-agent pool. This will allow teams to pick up solo registered players to fill in their gaps, or grab a sub or two for a game if needed. This range of flexibility wouldn’t work in a wholly competitive environment when team segregation is important. Thankfully with a more relaxed atmosphere we can accommodate a much wider range of people.

As a solo player, if you don’t end up playing at least two games during the season, we will refund your registration. So why not register?

Registration closes: February 8th, 2019 @ 11:59PM

Format

Depending on numbers, we are running a either a round robin or swiss format tournament for the recreation league. If we have enough teams to use a swiss style, it uses a form of matchmaking and ranking in order to match teams with other teams of equal skill. Because of this, your first match or two might not be the closest, but we’ll do our best to avoid that. By the end, everyone will hopefully be able to play challenging, even matches.

Matches will use Battlefy’s auto stat tracking and match completion system to ensure fair reporting, as well as tournament codes to make it easy for everyone to get into the game with the correct settings. SKL officials will schedule each match to be played within a 24 hour period.

You can learn more about the format and rules on our recreational rules page.

Schedule

SKL admins will be scheduling games for teams based on the availability given in the registration form. We ask that teams give at least 2 weekdays and 1 weekend day per week that generally work, so that we can schedule matches for teams to be broadcast on our stream (twitch.tv/skl_esports). We will be streaming at least one match per week, and we will try to have every team on stream at least once!
