During this Season our community has grown enormously, and there have been many new additions to the game: recruitment mode, ranked, ladders, cooperative vs. AI, and 18 new champions have been released as of today.

We have also seen our scene competitive with the League of Legends selection in eSports tournaments, such as the World Cyber ​​Games, the Electronic Sports League Major Series, and the Intel Extreme Master Season 5 Finals. In addition to those selections, we have launched the Season One Circuit that has certified nearly 50 pro tournaments, supported dozens of community tournaments, witnessed weekly cups with nearly 2000 competitors, and watched weekend tournament streams that have contributed nearly 150.000 viewers.

It's time to end Season One ... but not before we meet the best League of Legends team in the world and give out over $ 100.000 in prize money! To do so, we will close the First Season Circuit on Monday, May 2, and shortly after we will select the best teams from each region. Then we will send the top 8 teams from around the world to Dreamhack Summer in Jönköping, Sweden, where they will compete for 3 days - June 18-20 - until there is only one team left.
