The best teams from China’s League of Legends Pro League and Korea’s LCK will make up this season’s Mid-Season Cup (MSC). The four-day event begins on May 28 with LCK champions T1 facing JD Gaming. The finals will be held on May 31.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all games will be played online. The LCK teams will be competing from LoL Park in Seoul and the Chinese teams will be participating from the Shanghai Super Brand Mall. According to ESPN, “ping for the matches will be a uniform 30-40 milliseconds and artificially standardized to preserve competitive integrity.”
Two teams from each competition make up both groups.
Group A (May 28, best of one)
Group B (May 29, best of one)
Riot Games’ official Twitch channel will stream the games live.
In April, Riot Games announced the cancellation of the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This tournament, a LPL-LCK combined showdown, replaces that event.
