After the 2014 Season, the LPL expanded to a 12-team competition from the original 8-team format.
After the 2015 Season, the LPL changed to have 2 groups.
After the 2017 Season Spring Split, the LPL was franchised and promotion was removed.
After the 2017 Season Summer Split, the LPL expanded to a 14-team competition by franchising and promoting LSPL Summer's Champion.
After the 2018 Season, the LPL expanded to 16-team format by franchising and promoting LDL Grand Final's Champion, and changed back to have only 1 group with a single round robin. The LPL may further expand in the future.
Teams may be rebranded or acquired completely. Team under different names will be regarded as different teams in the tables above.

By Slot[edit]

After the 2017 Season Spring Split, the LPL was franchised. Before franchising LPL, e-Sport clubs may be bought by each other, or a sometime complex agreement may be signed by e-Sport clubs, causing multiple rebrands and reorganizes. After franchising LPL, e-Sport clubs may be bought or even founded by enterprises, and thus changed their names after the enterprises.

Key
Retained spot
Organization or Brand changes
Promotion qualifier or Franchised vacant slot

NOTE:

1 The previous team owning the slot disbanded, and the slot was transferred to other team (or, to LPL official for franchise).

2 After Star Horn Royal Club's relegation, SHRC, Vici Gaming, Team King and Gamtee came to a mutual agreement which resulted in one of the most complex team acquisitions in League of Legends history. VG Potential's LPL slot was sold to SHRC, forming Royal Never Give Up, with players from Gamtee and Team King. Instead, VG Potential bought Gamtee's LPL slot and remains its own roster. The former SHRC's roster was mostly transferred to Team King,

3 During 2016 Season, QG Reapers was affiliated by Newbee, during which the roster of the two team was exchanged. QG Reapers left Newbee after the new QG Reapers (or Newbee before 2016 Season) was promoted to LPL and they have to seperate according to the rulebook.

Team WE and Royal Club qualified automatically for the 2013 Spring Split having finished in the top 2 of the TGA Grand Prix 2012 Winter.

The LPL was franchised and the promotion was removed since the start of 2017 Summer Split. The LPL 2017 Summer Promotion was played as usual.

The LPL 2018 Summer Split was the first (and by now only) split in LPL history that neither promotions and relegations nor rebrandings and organization changes happen and with all 14 teams' name and logo same from previous split due to the franchising of LPL.
