How To Play E1 Fantasy With Friends

Originally published at:

If you are a seasoned gamer, then you will have a real mix of online and IRL friends. Playing LoL Fantasy with friends is not only a great way to keep in touch, but it also gives you a fun and unique opportunity to crush combine both groups of friends.

I have managed a ton of Fantasy Football leagues (and now Fantasy LoL), so I’m excited to show you how to play E1 Fantasy with friends and the best way to set up communication.

Steps to Play Fantasy LoL with Friends

1. Set up a Private Leaderboard

The best way to play with Fantasy with friends is by setting up your own Private Leaderboard, this will be the foundation in which your Fantasy LoL experience will revolve around. Here you will be able to see each friend’s ranking, view their lineups, and compare their scores.


  1. Sign into E1 Fantasy
  2. Click the ‘Leaderboard’ button
  3. Click on the ‘Create/Join’ button
  4. Select ‘Create’ a Leaderboard
  5. Name your Leaderboard and write a Description
  6. You will receive a Leaderboard Code and invite link, share either of these with your friends!

2. Invite Friends

Playing Fantasy LoL with friends is easy, but remember it can be daunting for people that have never played. My advice would be to handhold the newbies during the signup process and setting their first lineup. After the first week, even those who are new to LoL will be thriving!

With Invite Link

  1. Share the invite link with a friend
  2. They will be directed to E1 Fantasy and asked to sign in or create an account
  3. After signing in they will see a message “Successfuly joined private leaderboard” (see image)
  4. That’s all!

With Leaderboard Code

  1. Share the Leaderboard Code with a friend
  2. They will sign into their account
  3. Click on the ‘Leaderboard’ button
  4. Click the ‘Create/Join’ button
  5. Enter the Leaderboard Code in the ‘Enter Code’ section

3. Adding a Social Aspect

I have trialed a few different ways of communicating with fantasy league members. Eventually, E1 Fantasy will implement chat functionality; however, in the mean-time, you can try these:

  • Discord – This is the gamer’s choice for communication. You will need to host your server and invite friends from your Leaderboard. If you are new to Discord, join our E1 Fantasy Server and ask our team about how it works!
  • Facebook Groups/Messenger – These are common in the traditional fantasy sports space, they are easy to manage, and most people have a Facebook.
  • Whatsapp/Text Groups – These are the easiest to set up and use. Warning: If you are going to have more than five people, they can be hard to follow!

When playing fantasy LoL with friends, the best choice of communication platform is the one most people are already using.

4. Rediscovering Leaderboard Codes/Links

If you happen to forget your Invite Link or Invite Code, don’t stress! Here is how you recover both:

  1. Sign in to your account
  2. Click on the ‘Leaderboard’ button
  3. Click on the gear/cog in the top right corner
  4. You can now see all the Invite Links and Codes for ALL your Leaderboards

Note: If you accidentally leave your Leaderboard you can ask one of the other members for the code/link. If you are still having trouble, feel free to contact our friendly support team 🙂
