Learn more about the first season of the ICS – Regular Series in this article. You will also find the selected groups in the text that were randomly compiled from the pre-registration. If you have any questions, please contact an admin via discord or a support ticket.
The course of the 1st season
After numerous e-mails with RIOT Games and internal agreements, we decided not to hold a qualifier. Instead, the teams on 16.09. or 18.09. start directly into the group phase, which will last a total of 7 weeks. Afterwards, the ICS – Regular Series will be paused for one week, in order to then stage playoffs of the first, second and some third place teams of the respective groups. The playoffs will take another 2 weeks, so that the first season of the ICS – Regular Series a total of 10 weeks, so until 25.11.2018 will be held. We will be pausing after the season in December and start in January 2019 with the 2nd season.
Prizes in the form of RP, Skins and XP Boosts will be provided by RIOT Games for each group stage and playoff. Therefore, please note that your entire team has to log in on the RIOT event page and check in on the RIOT event page before the first match. Please note that RIOT will not distribute prizes to individual teams/players who do not comply with this rule. The link to each event can be found in the description of your assigned group. If you have any questions, the admin team is happy to help.
The winner of the final playoffs will also receive the title “ICS – Champion Season 1” in addition to additional prizes (PaySafeCard) and may use this title in relation to the team/organization. Based on the points achieved in the group and playoff phase, the teams are divided into different divisions for the second season. All teams that have qualified for the playoffs on 25/11/2018 will automatically start in the 1st Division from the 2nd season of the ICS – Regular Series.
