RIAT Games is not only developing the current professional league "LJL," but is also putting efforts into discovering and nurturing the next generation of players.
The "LJL Academy League," which started last season, is one of these measures.

The league is a competition of players from the academies of 8 teams.
In addition to the daily practice matches, we expect to see the level of each team's players rise to a higher level by playing in a format that is more similar to professional competition!
In the "LJL 2022 Academy League," all teams will play a round-robin tournament, followed by a tournament round that will begin on Thursday, August 25, 2022.
The final match will be held on Thursday, September 1, 2022 to determine the winning team!

Last year's " LJL 2021 Academy League " was a hot topic as V3 Esports unexpectedly won the tournament without losing a single game.
Although it is called an academy, the participants are professional players who belong to a team.
Keep your eyes peeled for these players who will be active in the LJL in the future!
