The LEC 2019 Season awards Championship Points towards qualification for the World Championship.
- The winner of the LEC 2019 Summer Playoffs automatically qualifies (AQ) for the Worlds 2019 Main Event as Europe's 1st seed.
- Europe's 2nd and 3rd seeds will be determined at the LEC 2019 Regional Finals:
- Top 4 teams in Championship Points (minus teams already qualified for Worlds 2019) participate in the Regional Finals.
- Regional Finals consist of a King of the Hill single elimination bracket with seeding based on Championship Points.
- The team winning the finals qualifies for the Worlds 2019 Main Event as Europe's 2nd seed.
- The team losing the finals qualifies for the Worlds 2019 Play-In as Europe's 3rd seed.
- As the top team in Championship Points is seeded into finals of the Regional Finals, that team has secured qualification for Worlds and is guaranteed 3rd seed at minimum.
Championship Points Tiebreaker
In the event that multiple teams are tied in the standings at the conclusion of the Summer Split, then the team that gained the most points in the Summer Split will be considered the holder of the tiebreaker. In the event that two teams are tied at the 5th-6th position for the Summer Split, then Summer Split regular season win loss record will be the first tiebreaker. If both teams are tied in the Summer Split regular season, then head to head will be used to determine the tiebreaker. Summer Split regular season head to head will include any tiebreaker games needed to determine position.
- The team finishing with the most Championship Points now has to play in Regional Finals to determine whether they will qualify for the Worlds Main Event or the Worlds Play-In. In 2018 this team would have automatically qualified for the Main Event.
Changes From 2018
- At the start of the 2019 season, the LEC decided that the team finishing the season with the most Championship Points would no longer automatically qualify for the Worlds Main Event.
- Instead, the winner of Regional Finals qualifies for the Worlds 2019 Main Event, while the runner-up qualifies for the Worlds 2019 Play-In.
- Finishing the season with the most Championship Points now grants you a bye to the finals of the Regional Finals, thus securing you qualification for the Play-In at minimum.
- Due to the number of teams participating in Regional Finals not changing, the lowest ranked team attending Regional Finals last year would not qualify this year.
