League of Legends PBE.

As part of League of Legends’ 10-year anniversary celebrations, it was announced that a major rework of the current classes and champions in Teamfight Tactics would be on its way for Patch 9.22.

Riot have now revealed that players will be able to try their hands at the new Set 2 champions and class system on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) servers ahead of time and shared the date for the major update.

In a blog post made by Riot Games’ design director, Meddler, they shared that the new set of champions and classes titled ‘Rise of the Elements’ will be available for players to experience early on October 22 on PBE.

The developer also explained that the major Teamfight Tactics update is currently planned to go live on all servers for patch 9.22, whereas the Summoner’s Rift changes would be expected during a later patch.

“Next Tuesday should be an enormous PBE update as both the preseason changes and TFT Set 2 go out. The plan is that TFT set 2 will then go live in 9.22 while preseason will soak for another patch to get more testing and go live in 9.23.”

The LCS has kicked off 2021 not with the Spring Split, but with a new tournament called Lock In. Similar to the KeSPA Cup or Demacia Cup, NA’s top teams will duke it out in a pre-season event right before the main season. Here’s what you need to know.


  • LCS Lock In 2021 is a new pre-season tournament for all 10 teams.
  • 100 Thieves smash TSM to open up their 2021 campaign.
  • CLG face Liquid next at 4pm PT / 7pm ET.

LCS Lock In: Stream

The LCS Lock In tournament is the 2021 starter for League of Legends in North America. All 10 LCS teams will take part in the two-week competition that gives fans a taster of the year to come.

They’re not playing for pittance either. The winning team will take home $150,000 USD, and a lot of confidence heading into the start of Spring 2021 in February.

LCS Lock In 2021: Teams & groups

As we mentioned earlier, all 10 of the LCS teams will be taking part in the Lock In tournament. Some teams may choose to field their academy rosters instead of their main rosters, but with $150,000 on the line, there’ll definitely be some teams gunning for the flag.

Among them, Summer 2020 champions TSM would be favorites. Having made a number of moves in the off-season, only keeping jungler Mingyi ‘Spica’ Lu, the new squad will have a hard task in front of them. Team Liquid, CLG, and Cloud9 also made some big moves in the off-season to catch back up.

The 10 teams will be split into groups of two, with the top four from each group making it to the single-elimination playoffs.

Group A Group B
TSM FlyQuest
100 Thieves Cloud9
CLG Dignitas
Golden Guardians Evil Geniuses
Team Liquid Immortals
