The first half of the competitive season is coming to a close, which means it’s time for the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational. This year the Play-Ins and Group Stages will be held at the EU LCS studio in Berlin and the semifinals and finals will be held in Le Zénith in Paris. (This is the same place that All-Stars was at in 2014!)
The regions are all wrapping up their splits and the best of the best teams will be representing their regions to duke it out in Paris.
