The beginning of the 2022-23 season, including the Regionals for North America, Middle-East, and North Africa, has been revealed. There will be several adjustments, but the whole format is quite the same as it was last year. The major adjustments for the 2022-23 season, however, there is currently no date yet for the results. Sign-ups for the RLCS 2022-23 will begin next Thursday, September 22 at 10am PT.

TheRLCS 2021-22 Season is the greatest RLCS season yet. The result of the RLCS Season is improved, allowing players and supporters to expect year-over-year stability. Check out what we''ve kept and what''s new:

  • The season is divided into Fall, Winter, and Spring Splits.
  • Every Split has three Regional Events. Regional Event names are now standardized and are an Open, a Cup, and an Invitational (Example: Fall Open, Fall Cup, and Fall Invitational).
    • The Fall Open will have fully Open Qualifiers to fill the 16 available slots.
    • For the Winter and Spring Opens, the top eight in overall points will auto-qualify and the remaining eight slots will be filled by Open Qualifiers.
    • Each Cup will have eight teams qualified via overall season points, and eight additional teams will qualify via Open Qualifiers.
