All of our team has been hard at work striving to make Esports One Fantasy even better for all of you. We have redesigned parts of the fantasy platform, revamped our Bytes currency, and most importantly made several changes to how you can enter and compete in Esports One Fantasy!
NEW Changes Include:
- Multiple leagues and more contest to compete in
- Ability to set unique lineups for each contest
- Reworked premium contests and Bytes
Fantasy Leagues for 2021
Last season we had one combined contest of LEC/LCS players, we listened to your feedback and now the LEC and LCS will have separate contests rather than combined! This means each week you will be able to set LEC or LCS lineups in not just one, but multiple contests! Each contests can also have a unique lineup meaning you can test that risky strategy or captain pick you keep dreaming about.
- LCS: The League Championship Series is the top tier of professional play in North America that consists of 10 franchised teams who compete in 15 weeks of regular season play and 3 tournaments over the course of the year.
- LEC: The League of Legends European Championship is the highest level of competitive play in Europe. There are 10 franchised teams who compete over the course of two 9-week splits that both culminate in a split playoff tournament.
Types of Contests
Since we have reworked our digital currency, Bytes, we have also improved how you can enter contests on Esports One. Cash Cups have been replaced by Bytes Contests as premium contests where users can still compete with the Bytes that they have purchased in the Store.
- Free Contest – These contests can be entered just by clicking the ‘Join Now’ button on the contest page. If you place top 5, you earn entry to a premium contest for the next week.
- Bytes Contest – Spend your Bytes to enter these premium contests to win more Bytes that can be cashed out later in the Store or exchanged for prizes.
