MSI 2017: Schedule, bracket and live scores from Brazil

Offseason? What offseason?

Riot Games

This year’s Mid-Season Invitational, an annual international League of Legends tournament showcasing each domestic league’s Spring champions, kicks off this weekend with the start of Play-In round. The tournament, which takes place this year in Brazil, will run from the end of April through almost the entire month of May, with a winner crowned after the final May 21.

This is the third ever Mid-Season Invitational. China’s EDward Gaming won the inaugural tournament in 2015, while Korea’s SK Telecom T1 won last year’s competition. SKT is back this year, representing the LCK once again.

This year brings a new format and a whole lot of more teams. It all starts with the Play-In round, which will begin Friday, April 28. All games will be streamed live on Lolesports and the Riot Games Twitch channel, as well as the Riot Games Brazil Twitch channel.

Now we head to MSI proper, where six teams will participate. They will play in one large double round robin, playing two best-of-one matches against every other team in the group. The top four teams will advance to the knockout stage, where will be treated to a best-of-five, single elimination bracket.

MSI will take place on Patch 7.8, with Xayah and Rakan disabled.
