League of Legends - Champions Queue is back

The League of Legends World Championship 2022 is just around the corner, and with it, Champion's Queue is receiving incredible hype. However, Riot are making decisions that won't keep it existing for long.

Champion's Queue is a server for high-elo players in North America, organized by Riot Games , for players to be able to play League of Legends with extremely low ping, and with an assurance that there are no trolls in their games.

It seems, however, that Riot are once again  taking a good concept and ruining it with their decision-making. After all, while the players aren't trolling games, most aren't up to pro standards, and those that can be, are not allowed to play.

Luckily, after being admonished by their fan base, RIot Games are changing the requirements needed to join the NA Champion's Queue. Previously the requirements were as follows:

  • Competing Worlds Player
  • Bootcamping Player from an Active Roster in a Worlds-Qualifying League
  • A former pro player from a Worlds Qualifying League (Ex: LCS, LEC, LCK, etc.)
  • A former player from LCS Academy

Twitch League of Legends - Caedrel, apparently, can't contribute to Champion's Queue League of Legends - Caedrel, apparently, still can't contribute to Champion's Queue

Now, however, Riot Games will allow players that fulfill the following requirements to compete on in the Champion's Queue as well:

  • Reached Challenger in Solo Queue this season
  • Located in North America
  • Approved by the CQ Council after a thorough review

 These are all reasonable requirements, and alleviate all of the concerns fans had previously regarding the state of the Champion's Queue. Hopefully, we will see some more famous streamers join in on the fun.
