Leaguepedia Projects the Brackets: The Top 20 Ladder Teams for Challenger Series Play-In (EU/NA)

Update on January 4th: An anonymous user detected a flaw in our ranking chart on the EU West area. The article has since been fixed.

Ever since Riot Games announced the creation of the 2014 Challenger Series, presented by Coke Zero, many players across Europe and North America formed Ranked 5v5 teams for a chance to earn a place in the Play-In phase of the tournament. From the possible 150 Challenger ranked teams across all regions, 40 will proceed to advance to the play-ins (top 20 from North America, and top 10 each from EUW and EUNE). With the ladder freeze completed, Leaguepedia is projecting the following team participation as well as rosters and qualification groups, based on screenshots taken on January 3rd, 11:59 PST, and structural information from reputable sources.

Disclaimer: The official list of participants Riot Games releases may differ from the list seen here, as teams must confirm participation. Also, Riot Games has the final say on which teams will be participating.

Europe:

The following teams are projected to advance to the Play-In stage to join SUPA HOT CREW XD, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and MeetYourMakers in the Coke Zero Challenger Series.

The North America ladder/qualifiers are much easier to understand from the results, due to avoiding that nasty split Europe has. Some quick notes on the teams and potential Play-In participant impacts:

  • Lyon Gaming came in tied for first, but they have been known to forfeit NA qualifiers since winning the Season 3 Latin America Regional Finals. There has been no indication from Lyon themselves, but I believe they will participate if allowed.
  • BladeTeam, the ranked team formerly of Denial.East made a major roster change on December 30th, and will likely take over the second seed.
  • The Swarm is the ranked team for Curse Academy and will be using their new lineup.
  • Hashtag GGU, Drink Coke Zero Everyday, and Disney Star all overlap players, likely meaning the 18th spot will be vacated, which allows realygudplayers in as the 20th seed.

Again, Challenger Series participants are not subjected to the LCS age restriction, but three of the five team members must meet LCS eligibility requirements. Stay tuned for the official Riot statement as well as the league's rulebook on LoLeSports.com

In the past, Riot has emailed the team captains of all qualifying teams with instructions to confirm.

I believe you switched the names of challenger 8 and constipated milk on the NA end. Could be wrong tho

You're right, somewhere in my shuffling of the order late in the night the names got swapped. I will figure out which is which and edit it in. Thanks.

I do apologize for the delay. Should be fine now. If it doesn't work, might be a caching issue, so give or take a few minutes/hours/a login onto your Curse account.

The deadline was 3rd of January, 11:59 (AM) PST, which is basically as it says: 11:59, not 23:59.

There is something wrong in EUW challenger, places 6,7,8. Points, places and group spots are incorrect. Should be like this: 6th Tick, Trick and Duck 562 pts | 7th Heavy Botlane 551 pts | 8th inferno eSports 544 pts.

I don't believe the adc for "Gamers2 YO" (the oceTeam) will be Samux, i believe he will be Freeze or Crazycaps, the one who dont play LCS.
