Overview

The 2014 NA Challenger Series is a Challenger league that runs alongside the LCS for the entire 2014 season and a direct bridge into the LCS. Twenty teams from the Challenger ladder will be placed into five brackets of four, where the top five teams will be placed into Challenger Series #1. The teams will then play in a single elimination bracket; the top three teams from this bracket will advance into Challenger Series #2, where they will be joined by another five teams from another twenty team qualifier identical to the one for Challenger Series #1.
