Doublelift and CoreJJ team up to host in-house LoL tournament

Nicholas James • November 27, 16:53

This year’s offseason in professional League of Legends has been especially wild, with roster moves aplenty. Pro players aren’t taking the time off, however, and a group of North American veterans and amateurs have banded together to host an in-house tournament with some of the biggest names in the region.

The four-team bracket is composed of rosters led by Robert “Blaber” Huang, Peng “Doublelift” Yilang, Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, and Mingyi “Spica” Lu. Each team is composed of three LCS players, one Academy player, and one amateur. Each match is a best of five, with the tournament playing out in single-elimination fashion with one match being played each night.

How to watch CoreJJ’s LoL tournament

The games began yesterday, with Blaber’s team facing off against Spica’s roster. Blaber’s team took the match in a four-game series with amateur player EG Srtty taking the title of MVP for the best of five. “Blaber’s Crabber” will face the winner of today’s match between former teammates Doublelift and CoreJJ. The match will take place at 5 p.m. PT today and fans can tune into any of the players’ streams to tune in. However, the main streams will likely be CoreJJ and Doublelift, as the two are the largest names on each roster and are likely to attract the most attention.

The event looks to showcase amateur talent while encouraging good practice at the highest level of League of Legends, something North American professionals have long had complaints about. Between these sorts of initiatives and the upcoming addition of Champion’s Queue, the very best in North America seem to have plenty of opportunities to brawl it out with other elite players. This is one of the few chances fans will get to see these players before the LCS resumes in mid-January.
