Franchising Era (Spring 2018-Present)
Before the 2018 Spring split, the NALCS moved to a permanent franchised system, removing promotion. Immortals, Team Dignitas, Team EnVyUs, and Phoenix1 were not accepted into the new league and were disbanded. The six remaining teams, along with four new teams, were given permanent slots in the league.
Promotion was removed to begin the 2018 Season
