Riot Games announced that League of Legends: Wild Rift players in select regions can sign up for the Origin Series tournament on May 20. The tournament is open to competitors from Europe, Turkey, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East and North Africa.
How to register for the League of Legends: Wild Rift Origin Series
Interested players that are ages 17 and up must sign in or create an account on the ESL Play tournament platform in order to compete in the tournament. Players can do so using their email address or Riot ID. Once on the sign-in page, all members of a team must register their Wild Rift IDs.
Using the team invite link, competitors can invite other players onto their team as long as each teammate is already registered. Each team can have between five and eight players. From there, the team must sign up for the tournament and make sure to check in on the day of the event. Once registration has closed, teams cannot make any changes to their rosters.

Origin Series format and schedule
The upcoming League of Legends: Wild Rift Origin Series tournament will include multiple monthly qualifiers. In the groups phase of these qualifiers, teams will battle it out in eight best-of-three double elimination brackets in the 5v5 Draft Pick mode. All champions will be allowed, although teams will have a 30 second window to ban champions via chat before each match.
The top 16 teams in each monthly qualifier group will earn points based on their performances, while the top two teams from each group will advance to the monthly finals. Likewise, qualified teams will earn points based on their placements in the monthly finals. Later this year, the teams with the most points will get to compete against one another at the offline finals.
The League of Legends: Wild Rift Origin Series will kick off with its first monthly qualifier on Saturday, June 5 at 9 a.m. ET.
