The League of Legends Southern African player base has always been a community that we have wanted to help build and support. We know and understand that the community has been rather fragmented at times, especially when it comes to understanding how many local players there are - and even more specifically how many play competitively. Without the base numbers, it is exceedingly difficult to get sponsorship attachment, as we understand that there are a variety of types of League of Legends fans (casual, competitive, spectators, content creators and cosplayers) that enjoy and love the game. 

While that might be a broad statement, it is also one of the reasons why League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world - there is something in it for everyone.

We feel that we needed to tackle the broadest sense of the community by providing a space for inclusivity but additionally by adding a feature that we know the community needs. 

League of Legends added to ACGL - A brand new feature announced 

Today we are opening up a game page to the League of Legends community. Like other select titles, the page will provide the community with a place to submit clips, apply as free-agents and view leaderboards. 

Unlike the other leaderboards on the website, the primary display on the League of Legends leaderboard will showcase local players in-game rank that they have achieved. Finally, players can view where they stand in the local community and actively use those ranks to find new players, compete in tournaments and build on their League of Legends experience. 

We are extremely proud of bringing this feature to the local community and will actively monitor the leaderboard, with the assistance of the community, to be sure it represents local gamers. 

So after your placement games are completed, you can now compare yourself to the rest of the community.
