Let the games begin!

Registration for the SKL LoL Rec League (Fall 2019) is now open!

Hello all! As we approach the end of what we hope was a great summer for everyone, SKL Esports is excited to once again open registration for what will be our second recreational League of Legends league of 2019 – SKL LoL Rec League – Fall 2019

This recreational league is focused on a fun and entertaining experience above all else, while also 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? Teams are $25 ($5 a person) and solo players are $5 a person.

Register at the bottom of this page!
Registration closes: September 13th @ 11:59 PM MST

Format

Depending on numbers, we are running 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! Regular season will run for 6-7 weeks and playoffs will be near the end of November, depending on teams availability.

TL;DR

Registration

$25 per team ($5 a person)

$5 per free agent

Closes: Friday, September 13th @ 11:59:59PM MST

Registration for the Second Recreational League has Opened!

The first split of the SKL League of Legends Rec League officially concluded a couple weeks ago, with Anything Deemed Inappropriate coming out victorious over White or Wong. We would like to offer our sincerest congratulations to both teams. Now, onto the next split!

Registration for the next Rec League split will be opening on February 6th! With that being said, there are a few changes we are going to make for this upcoming split. First of all, and most prominently, we will be splitting the league into two divisions: Competitive and Relaxed. This decision was made in order to ensure that everyone can still join the Rec League, while also improving league parity.

Competitive Division

Competitive will be geared towards higher ranked players looking for a more competitive atmosphere, while still maintaining the relaxed tone of the Rec League. The Competitive division will feature playoffs and a grand final at the end of the regular season.  We will also place more of an emphasis on streaming these matches. However, unlike last Rec League split, games in this division will be scheduled by SKL Admins based on pre-provided availability of teams. This division will also feature a to be determined prize pool. Team registration fees for this division will be $10 per player.

Relaxed Division

Relaxed will be geared more towards players who are just looking to chill and have a good time playing games with friends. There will be no prize pool for this division, and they will not be guaranteed streamed games. However, they will be guaranteed fun. The scheduling of games for this division during the week is up to the two teams. If a scheduled time cannot be agreed between two teams for that week, a scheduled time will be chosen by the SKL Admin Team for early the following week. Team registration fees for this division will be $4 per player.

Free agents will be put into a general pool and available to sub for either division, to ensure maximum availability of subs. Free agent registration is $5.

For the most part, the rest of the protocols from last season will remain in place. Teams will be matched up with another team once per week to play a best of two series. After a scheduled game time has been agreed upon by two teams, or before the SKL-scheduled game time, a tournament code can be generated in Battlefy for the match. However, it is important to not generate the tournament code too far ahead of time, as the generated codes expire after twenty-four hours. Battlefy will track all of the stats for the matches, as well as reporting the outcome of the match, through proper use of the tournament code.

As always, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us through our Facebook page or on our Discord channel. And remember, let’s keep it light, fun, and recreational out there. ?

Your closest friend,

Kevin “BigBooty” Bode
