One of the most successful esports game nowadays – League of Legends (LoL) – has just revealed the time and location for their 2019 Mid-Season Invitational events and the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) Spring Finals.

Previously, there were LCS in North America (LCS NA) and LCS in Europe (LCS EU). However the LCS EU has changed to LEC since the beginning of 2019 season so we only have LCS as the highest class LoL tournament in NA. The LCS Spring Finals will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, on Apr. 13 at the Chaifetz Arena. It will be the first live League of Legends event in the Midwest since the 2016 World Championship quarterfinals in Chicago.

And there are some changes in the procedure for the LCS Spring Finals this time. In the old day, we had a 3rd/4th-place match and the event lasted more than one day. However, a blog post by Riot Games – developer of LoL – suggested that despite “some great moments,” the lesser match also “provided some underwhelming matchups and diminished fan interest due to the lower stakes.” The post suggests that a 3rd/4th-place match will likely remain in the Summer Finals due to needing to rank teams for the World Championship and Regional Qualifier

Meantime, the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) will be held in Vietnam and Taiwan. The Play-In Stage will be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from May 1-7, the Group Stage will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam from May 10-14, and the Knockout Stage will be in Taipei, Taiwan from May 17-19.

MSI is the second biggest international tournament for the game LoL (the biggest tournament is World Championship). In MSI, 13 teams representing 13 regions will be competing for one final victory. The result of MSI partly affects the qualifier of World Championship. So far, no information about the venues has been confirmed by Riot Games.
