Remember when our parents would make us go outside to play because “being on the computer all day” would get us no where? Jokes on you, mom and dad! eSports, which includes competitive video games like League of Legends, DOTA 2, Starcraft 2 and others, has millions of fans and players from the U.S. to China, and is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the world. League of Legends alone has 67 million monthly subscribers and the most recent LCS World Championship held in Korea boasted a viewership of 27 million people. Just to give you a perspective, those numbers are higher than the NBA championships and the average NFL game. And with the sport growing in popularity, why should traditional sports have all the Fantasy fun?

Long has Fantasy Football (and the Fantasy leagues for other sports that have popped up in recent years) made it OK to talk smack to your friends and to cheer during all the games, not just your own team’s — but just for that one guy that you have in your line-up. And now fans of the LCS can get in on the smack talking fantasy action with Riot Games LCS Fantasy league.


Launched in May 2014, LCS Fantasy operates in basically the same way as your Fantasy Football league. You form a team, invite your friends, have a draft and set your line-up every week. And the good news is that it’s only the second week of the LCS season, so you still have time to form up your league without having missed much. Whether you’ve been following the LCS for a while or you’re new, it’s a great way to learn the players and connect with your LoL-loving friends outside your own games.

You can catch all the LCS action on Riot’s Twitch or YouTube channels. See you on the Rift!
