League of Legends All-Star 2017 Event: Everything you need to know

The All-Star 2017 event is nearly upon us. From December 7th to 10th, the best of the best on the Rift will battle it out for regional and personal pride, not to mention glory, in Los Angeles as we round out the year with a bang. Let's take a look at the key details for the event.

The format

In a change from last year, there will only be two tournaments taking place during the All-Star 2017 Event - the Main Event and 1v1 Tournament.

The Main Event will see teams split into either Group A or Group B where they will compete in a single best-of-one round robin. The best two teams from each group will then progress to the semifinals, which will take a best-of-three format. The victors will then move on to the finals, which will be best-of-five.

The 1v1 Tournament is also back this year, and 16 players will go head-to-head in a single elimination bracket. Winners will move on to the quarterfinals, which will be Bo1. Those who are victorious will then move to the semifinals and finals respectively, which will each be a Bo5. 


Who’s competing?

There are eight regions taking part in the All-Star 2017 Event, and their rosters are filled with the best from their respective regions, as voted for by players. Each regional team will also have a head coach as voted for by that region’s pros. The dream teams that have been assembled are:

Main Event - Group A

EU LCS (Europe)

  • Top: sOAZ
  • Jungle: Jankos
  • Mid: PowerOfEvil
  • ADC: Rekkles
  • Support: IgNar
  • Coach: Youngbuck

LCK (Korea)

  • Top: CuVee
  • Jungle: Ambition
  • Mid: Faker
  • ADC: PraY
  • Support: GorillA
  • Coach: H-Dragon

LMS (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau)

  • Top: Ziv
  • Jungle: Karsa
  • Mid: FoFo
  • ADC: BeBe
  • Support: SwordArT
  • Coach: Steak

TCL (Turkey)

  • Top: Thaldrin
  • Jungle: Stomaged
  • Mid: Frozen
  • ADC: Zeitnot
  • Support: Zergsting
  • Coach: Pades

Main Event - Group B

NA LCS (North America)

  • Top: Hauntzer
  • Jungle: MikeYeung
  • Mid: Bjergsen
  • ADC: Sneaky
  • Support: Aphromoo
  • Coach: Ssong

LPL (China)

  • Top: 957
  • Jungle: Mlxg
  • Mid: xiye

GPL (Southeast Asia)

  • Coach: Tinikun

CBLoL (Brazil)

  • Top: VVvert
  • Jungle: Revolta
  • Mid: Kami
  • ADC: brTT
  • Support: Dioud
  • Coach: Peter

Sparks will definitely fly in both groups, and I for one can’t wait to see how the LCK All-Stars perform as a team, with CuVee and Ambition fresh off the back of Samsung Galaxy’s win at worlds, coupled with the ever-present Faker.

1v1 Tournament

The following 16 players have been chosen by their coaches to go head-to-head for individual glory:

  • EU LCS: PowerOfEvil, Rekkles
  • LCK: Faker, PraY
  • LMS: FoFo, SwordArT
  • TCL: Frozen, Zeitnot
  • NA LCS: Bjergsen, Sneaky
  • LPL: Meiko, Uzi
  • GPL: Naul, Levi
  • CBLoL: VVvert, brTT

Although Uzi will be looking to defend his 2016 win, expect there to be strong challenges from PraY and Bjergsen, among others.

How can I watch?

The Main Event Group Stages will take place from the 7th to the 8th, with the Semifinals taking place on the 9th. The Finals will then be shown on Sunday, the 10th. As well, the 1v1 Tournament will run right alongside the Main Event.

You can watch all the games live on the Lolesports website, with the action starting daily from 3 pm Pacific Time, so don't miss out!
