Valorant Season 1 2021 Promotion/Relegation Announcement

Hello everyone, hope you all had a great year and are looking forward to hopping straight back into the action. To get started into the new season, we will begin the Promotion/Relegation series on the Monday 25th January 2021.

All information regarding Relegations will be located below, if you need any help please contact an LPL Admin!

Key Dates
Monday 18th January - Promotion/Relegation Signups opens
Saturday 23rd January - Promotion/Relegation Signups close
Monday 25th January - Promotion/Relegation begins
Sunday 7th February - Promotion/Relegation ends
Monday 22nd February - Week 1 - Open, Amateur and Evolution begins
Monday 22nd & Tuesday 23rd February - Week 1 - Summer Cup Legends begins

Core 3 Ruling
4.7 - Retaining Division Spots
The core 3 rule entails that you must have 3 out of your starting 5 playing all games for the season (this also includes the promotion/relegation series). If you do not have core 3 from the start of the season playing in this series you will be disqualified from the tournament.
A core member of a team is a player who played the first match of the season, those 5 players are considered core and you will need 3/5 if you would like to retain your division qualification.

The Inject System for the upcoming Relegation

A few seasons ago we implemented a new system regarding how Injects and Promotion/Relegation will work.

“Within previous seasons you have seen us make room for Inject teams within Relegation, we will no longer be doing this.

We will be using a strict system that will only see a few inject teams make it through. We are doing this to help promote team longevity. Inject teams will only be pushed into Promotion/Relegation if a team already in one has died, they will still need to meet the requirements of the division. If no teams meet the requirements then a team from below will be brought up."

To qualify as an inject you will need *3 players who have played that division within the last 2 seasons.

What to include in the injection signup

- The qualifications of each player (Challenger, Evo, Order I.S, Fortress, etc)
- A clear detailing of what division you are seeking
- An outline of the team and accomplishments
