The Tournament Code is an automatically generated code that creates a lobby in League of Legends, with the exact same settings and players as on Challengermode. It automates the process of setting up custom games, and make match reporting automatic!
How to get the Tournament code?
As soon as a tournament has started, the bracket is generated and every player or team are given a tournament lobby on Challengermode. At first, the lobby may wait to display the code until everyone is ready:
Note that this step will only be required when the tournament lobbies are started by players (when all of them have entered) or admins manually, rather than automatically by the system.
If the tournament is set to run "automatically", the tournament code is displayed for both teams right away:
You can copy the Tournament Code, enter the League of Legends client and paste the code, as demonstrated below:
- Press Play
- Click "Create Custom"
- Click the "prize symbol" on the right to enter the Tournament Code
- Paste the Tournament Code and click Join
The Custom Game will now be created automatically for you and your opponents. Make sure that you choose the same side as on Challengermode. Left is Left, Right is Right (Blue vs Red).
DO NOT start the LoL game until everyone has entered the game lobby. Starting without a full enemy team (4v5 or 0v1, etc) may result in disqualification.
