What an interesting article.

Great news for the LoL pro-scene and e-sports as a whole. There has been a whole lot of discussion regarding the LCS format and the 5v5 Challenger Tier and how it could be bettered this season and this is a step in the right direction. Been waiting a while for some word on the pro scene in season 4 and this doesn't disappoint.

Challenger league in StarCraft has been trash, it's just not worth watching, it's like streaming Go4LoL's except big teams can't join because only small teams qualify for it.

AD Sona OP

I don't think it'll be better in League of Legends at all, but I guess only time will show.

I don't know, I mean it's meant to help smaller teams make it into the big leagues, I feel like you sorta missed the point.

The streaming of the games may not be as high quality as already established pro player matches, but even then, for people at our caliber of rank don't really learn too much watching them anyway. (Not including the Asian tournaments like OGN). But I feel the streaming is more or less meant to popularize the challenger players as stated in the original post.

In my opinion I feel like this is a good step in the right direction, I look forward to seeing a lot of my friend participating in these Challenger Series'.

I understand the point I just didn't make it very clear what I meant I guess, challenger league is not a bad concept at all (okay, maybe a little).

The main problem with it in SC is that the players in the challenger league play against eachother, then when some of them qualify for Premier league, they tend to do utter shit because they've never played at that level before, and then they get replaced by the old players the next season etc.

League of Legends is a completely different game though and, as mentioned, only time will show whether it's a good idea or not, although I definitely don't think it's a bad idea.

Ahh yeah I get you now, I actually know what you're talking about now with the SC reference and all.

And I completely agree, only time will tell whether or not this will be different, but I have a feeling it'll be good.
