Online via the NSE Discord
League of Legends NSE Winter is split into 2 main stages: Stage 1 Qualification (Weeks 1-3) and Stage 2 Swiss/Playoffs (Weeks 4-7)
In Stage 1, teams will be initially seeded into 3 skill groups. In the first round teams will play another team in the same skill group and in the following rounds be matched versus teams with a similar record in the tournament.
In Stage 2, the top 16/32 teams will start in the Division 1 bracket (a double elimination bracket) and everyone else will continue playing in a Swiss tournament starting with points based on their finish in Stage 1. Teams who do well in the Swiss can qualify for Division 2 or Division 3.
