A guide on how to draft your own kick-ass LoL Fantasy Team
This is a guide designed for new players looking to get into the fantasy LCS and includes everything you need to know to get started and draft a kick-ass LoL fantasy team.
Making a league
To get started in fantasy League of Legends Championship Series, you must enter into a league to compete against others. This can be done by creating a league consisting of either four, six or eight teams. The larger the league, the more competitors you will have.
Once completed, you are free to invite friends by sending them an invite link to compete in your league. Note, drafting / making a team cannot be done until the league is completely filled up.
Drafting a LoL fantasy team
You will have to set up a time where you and your friends are all online. Once everyone is in place, you take turns and pick players to form a team.
Like many of the larger real LCS teams, there will be seven starters and three substitutes across the various roles. However, there can only be a maximum of two players for a single role in your LoL fantasy team. The draft order will mirror once everyone has completed their picks for one set of players.
You may switch your starting players with substitute players every week, roster changes for the next week unlocked every Saturday.
Players who were not initially picked up in the drafting phase will enter a free agent pool which can be freely accessed to swap for, affecting your next week roster line-up.
