Now that we have one split under our belt, we have some awesome additions to our fantasy scoring that we wanted to share with you.
New Scoring Options
We’re excited to announce some new ways to score points for Summer Split! We heard your feedback loud and clear – League is a complex game that can’t just be reduced to K/D/A and CS. There are many statistics that affect how a player performs in a match, and we want our fantasy system to reflect that.
At the same time, we want to make sure that scoring options are balanced, fun, and fair. So we’ve settled on a list of metrics that we think will enhance the viewing experience. We think capturing the most exciting moments in a competitive match makes fantasy that much more fun – for example, when a player goes off for a triple kill or nets their first kill.
Finally, we know that in addition to players, the teams in the LCS and LEC have their own personalities and story lines. We’re excited to offer a Team Slot this season as well – capturing how well each team performs week to week and adding a new element of strategy to your match ups.
Individual Player Slot
The default player scoring goes as follows:
- Kills: 3 pts
- Deaths: -1 pt
- Assists: 2 pts
- Creep Score: 0.02 pts
Summer Split Additions:
- First blood bonus: 2 pts
- Triple Kill: 2 pts
- Quadra Kill: 4 pts
- Penta Kill: 7 pts
Similar to a defense in fantasy football, you now have the ability to draft and pick up a pro team for your fantasy team. The default team scoring goes as follows:
- Towers: 1 pt
- Barons: 2 pts
- Dragons: 1.5 pts
- Elder drake bonus: 2 pts
- First turret bonus: 2 pts
- Win in < 30 minutes bonus: 3 pts

It’s clear that LCS + LEC is a fantastic fantasy season option, so if you prefer this format, we’re your app!
We also decided to fully support the LCK from the Summer Split! You can read more about that here!
