The competitive League of Legends is coming back after a long pause that started after the end of the Worlds 2022 and the following off-season. The tournaments have resumed and the peak period for watching the LoL championship will be in February.

<p>Mark February in red in the calendar. The LoL esports schedule is tight as there are four major regions on the menu: LPL, LCK, LEC and LCS.

League Of Legends

LPL Spring 2023

The biggest regional split of spring started on 14 January 2023. The championship is accelerating and the decisive flow of games is expected in February.

Seventeen teams are going to take part in the fight for the biggest prize pool in all regions ($619,717): Anyone`s Legend, Bilibili Gaming, EDward Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix, Invictus Gaming, JD Gaming, LGD Gaming, LNG Esports, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Oh My God, Rare Atom, Royal Never Give Up, Team WE, ThunderTalk Gaming, TOP Esports, Ultra Prime, Weibo Gaming.

The best Chinese teams will be playing in the group format by the single-round robin system, having played 16 Bo3s each. The playoff of the LPL Spring 2023 will welcome 10 teams.

The main stage will show the main battles in the spring season and define the strongest teams of the split. They will go to the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 which will take place in London.

The intrigues of the season are: will JD Gaming be able to defend the title of the champions of the LPL Summer 2022, having saved the top roster, and will RNG be able to qualify for MSI to continue dominating at the prestigious series of tournaments?

LCK Spring 2023

The neighboring region is also going to be hot. The most prestigious league of the competitive LoL will return in February with high-level matches.

The competition will host matches of ten top teams from South Korea: BRION, Dplus, DRX, Freecs, Gen.G, Hanhwha Life Esports, KT Rolster, Nongshim RedForce, SANDBOX Gaming, T1. ~$304,000 and two trips to the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 are at stake.

As usual, the games in the spring split of the LCK 2023 will be held in two steps: the group stage and the playoff. In February, we will watch the events in the regular season.

All matches will be taking place offline and the venue of the competitive League of Legends will become LoL Park in Seoul. The spring LCK 2023 is worth watching at least because of the teams playing in it.

The list of participants can show off the current world champions from DRX and silver finalists of the previous Worlds 2022 T1. The former had some losses in their roster after the autumn reshuffle, and now it will be extremely hard to repeat the success from the previous year. T1 remains motivated: Faker still wants to raise the Summoner's cup over their head for the fourth time.

However, the legendary mid laner will face some obstacles in the new season. Dplus have collected the ultimate roster: Canna, Canyon, ShowMaker, Deft, Kellin,

Having received support from Deft, the team is going to return to the former glory that was acquired by the DAMWON KIA tag.

LEC Winter 2023

The European split is going to become one of the most interesting events in the February League of Legends. The regional league of the old world has gone through major changes since the moment when it was created in 2013.

The thirteenth competitive season in Europe will host three splits. The first of them was the LEC Winter 2023. It will be split into three stages instead of the two we are used to.

In the beginning, ten teams will take part in Bo1 matches for three weeks. After the definition of the eight best teams games, the group stage will start GSL format with Bo3 matches.

The final stage will be a playoff which will get the 4 best teams by the results of the group stage. At first, the LEC will have the Double-Elimination bracket in the main stage.

The winner of the LEC Winter 2023 will go to the Mid-Season Invitational directly, getting a direct trip to the LEC Finals 2023 that will take place in the summer this year. Here we will know the names of participants in the Worlds 2023 from Europe.

The mentioned prizes and the monetary awards of 87,334 dollars will be fought for by the usual clubs with minor changes: Astralis, Excel Esports, Fnatic, G2 Esports, KOI, MAD Lions, SK Gaming, Team BDS, Team Heretics, Team Vitality.

Newbies of the main European league are Team Heretics who bought a slot from Misfits, and also Koi. The latter deserves special attention as they have merged with Rogue and kept the nominal status of the champions of the LEC Summer 2022.

LCS Spring 2023

The North American League of Legends will become an integral part of February. Games at the LCS Spring 2023 will take place every Thursday and Friday.

Ten teams will play for the prize pool of $200,000. They will compete for two trips to the Mid-Season Invitational.

The participants are all top clubs in North America: 100 Thieves, Cloud9, Counter Logic Gaming, Dignitas, Evil Geniuses, FlyQuest, Golden Guardians, Immortals, Team Liquid, and TSM. The previous champion&rsquo;s cup of the LCS was taken by Cloud9, having won the LCS Summer 2022. To repeat the success, they will have to surpass their opponents in two stages.

At first, the team has to qualify for the playoff. To do so, the team will have to play 17 matches in the Bo1 format and take at least Top-6.

It is better to make it to Top-4, as the team will start the playoff from the semifinals and the fifth and sixth places will set off from the first loser&rsquo;s round. Now C9 with the new mid laner will be waiting for the main event where they will play in the double-elimination bracket with Bo5 matches.

We will find out if Fudge and company will be able to repeat the success of the previous summer this March. The finals of the LCS 2023 will take place in the LCS studio that is located in the NRG Stadium on 17 March.

In February, we are waiting for the full swing of the competitive League of Legends with the following smooth switch to the Mid-Season Invitational. Major matches of the regions will take place almost every day, so you will definitely not get bored.
