League of Legends fans can now create their own fantasy leagues and draft North American and European League Championship Series pros with Riot Games' new Fantasy LCS beta.
Once you create or join a four-, six-, or eight-person team, each week you'll be scored on your picks' kills, deaths, assists, and creep score with team scoring coming down to wins and major objectives. The video above is quick rundown of how it works and Riot has tips as well.
The Fantasy LCS is going to be awesome for anyone who actively follows the scene. So many people signed up yesterday that the site went down and, at the time of writing, live drafting is temporarily closed. There's clearly a desire for this stuff and it's nice to see fans able to participate in a fantasy league hosted by Riot itself. Once it's back up and running, that is.
