The first-ever official League of Legends: Wild Rift tournament in China, the 2021 LPL Warm Up Cup, concluded over the weekend.

16 LPL organizations debuted their Wild Rift rosters, which included former professional League of Legends players and new faces in the Chinese esports scene.

2021 LPL Warm Up Cup format

The LPL Warm Up Cup adapted a Swiss Stage format played in best-of-three matches. Depending on their results, teams were then grouped and faced off against each other in a best-of-one round robin.

Based on their overall LPL Warm Up Cup performance, their results determined if they were placed in Tier 1, Tier 2, or Tier 3. These will be their starting standings for the LPL Qualifier held later in the year.
