How to watch LCS week 7: the schedule and the streams

It’s crunch time.

Riot Games

We’re back in for another exciting week of LCS. This week will still be on patch 6.13, so we’ll likely be seeing similar picks and bans as last week. Teams need to start shaping up or shipping out, since this is one of the last weeks of LCS they have left to secure a playoffs position.

This week, EU is back on their normal schedule, so there won’t be any need to wake up at 5 a.m. to catch the games. NA also starts two hours earlier on Fridays starting this week and continuing for the rest of the split. The games will be starting at 6 p.m. to prevent the second series from going past midnight.

Fnatic took on Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek as its starting top-laner, removing Yeong-Jin “Gamsu” Noh entirely from the roster. H2K also announced Konstantinos “FORG1VEN” Tzortziou as a sub AD-carry, since Aleš "Freeze" Kněžínek has a hand injury. It hasn’t been mentioned if Forg1ven is starting this week or not.

As a reminder: North America is now using a best-of-three format in the regular season, while Europe is using best-of-two. With more games on the schedule, that means both leagues will use simultaneous streams, allowing you to choose which series you'd rather watch.

All games will still be streamed on YouTube, and the Riot Games Twitch stream will rotate dependent on matchups. For the rosters, click here for NA and here for EU. Each team will play two series each week.
