Back in 2013 Riot held its first ever Europe vs North America League of Legends competition, called Battle of the Atlantic. Due to some controversial point distribution, North America won the tournament — technically — despite Europe coming out the tournament with a better record.
Of the ten teams that competed at that tournament, only Fnatic, Cloud9 and Team SoloMid, will make their return to once again represent their region at Rift Rivals.
North America will also send third place Spring Split team Phoenix1 who have faced significant struggles in the first several weeks of the Summer Split as they have moved two members of their starting roster and are currently sitting at a 3-7 record after five weeks. Meanwhile, Europe will be represented by Mid-Season Invitational runner-up G2 Esports as well as Spring Split third place, finisher Unicorns of Love.
The two regions’ representatives will face off against each team from the rival region twice. After that the team with the best record in each region will face off in a best-of-five to determine the champion.
