LoL Registrations Officially Ended

With the Winter Leg of the League of Legends (LoL) Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) upon us, there have been a few rule changes that teams need to keep in mind. The following is a list of the changes that teams need to be aware of:

  • League weeks now run from Mondays to Sundays and no longer Tuesdays to Mondays.

  • There are new booking rules and penalty points to determine the guilty party when a game has not been played.

  • There are new Roster Submission rules to make sure that a team still has their core players.

All these rules can be found on the DGL Knowledgebase, and are marked with the date that they will change.

The registrations for the 2014 Winter Leg have gone well with 69 teams having entered, just seven shy of the Summer Leg. The Winter Leg will be starting on 19 May and it will be quite a tough couple of months as teams give it their all to make it to the Telkom Do Gaming Championships (DGC) at the end of the year.

This will be the second time that LoL is supported in South Africa and it seems like in becoming more competitive, teams are starting to do better and better within the Europe West (EUW) server.

There are quite a few new teams and it is always great to see what these teams will be pulling out of the hat, when it comes to the meta within LoL. There have been quite a few changes happening in LoL since the Summer Leg and it will be interesting to see how the teams adjust to the changes.

This is the last chance for teams to try and qualify to make it to the DGC as well as get their seeding for the 2015 season. Teams are reminded that if they fail to play their games and retire, all players within the team will be suspended from all DGL events for three months, this includes the DGC. If a team retires during a Playoff stage, they will still remain eligible to play in DGL games, as well as the game the retired from, but will be demoted to the appropriate division.

The 2014 League of Legends Telkom Do Gaming League is sponsored by Razer.
