What is Fantasy Esports?
Fantasy Esports allows users to create a team of professional players and use the stats the pro players rack up in their matches to compete with other Fantasy teams. Player stats translate over to points, and the Fantasy team with the most points scored wins!
What types of Fantasy Esports can I play?
We are launching with Daily Fantasy Esports, where you are able to create a new team of players each week. At launch, all users will be in the same massive league, encouraging people to create a lineup each week to win prizes at the end of the season.
What esports titles can I play fantasy with?
League of Legends is the first esport title we are creating fantasy for, focusing on LCS & LEC players. We plan on adding more titles soon.
How do I play?
Each week, you set a lineup of 5 players and a Team for that week. Your lineup locks when the first game of the weekend begins, and after all games are done, the total points for your lineup are calculated and added to your season total. The higher you score in the season, the higher chance you have at winning!
What sets E1 Fantasy apart from other Fantasy sites?
At E1, we created a unique twist on traditional fantasy, incorporating bonuses and aspects of scoring that mirror what players experience in-game. Also, we provide tons of data so that you can research your lineup while you are setting it, all in one place!
When does the fantasy season start?
The Fantasy League will officially begin at the start of the first LCS or LEC game in late-January 2020, but we will open the platform up at least a week prior to that day so you can set your lineup.
When does the fantasy season end?
After playoffs. E1 Fantasy leagues last through playoffs.
Are the scoring rules different during playoffs?
Yes. You can read about them on our Rules & Scoring page.
What players are available to pick?
This league includes just players in the LCS and LEC. We have plans to incorporate all regions down the road!
Why do all the LEC players look similar?
Due to strict EU privacy laws and legal restrictions regarding LEC players' personal information, we are currently unable to show LEC player portraits or likenesses.
Does this cost money to play?
No, the league if completely free to enter and participate in.
When can I change my lineup?
You can change your lineup up until the first LCS/LEC game of the weekend begins (even if you don’t have a player in that game). You can start setting your next week’s lineup as soon as all LCS/LEC games of the weekend conclude.
If my lineup is partially filled when the week is locked, will I still get points for what I have?
Yes. A lineup doesn't need to be complete in order to earn points.
How long does it take for points to show in my lineup?
Points should show within 2 minutes of an event occurring during a live game. For example, when Pobelter gets a kill, you should see the points for this in your lineup within 2 minutes. Also, you don't need to refresh your page to see points come in.
What if I don’t get into the first league? When will I be able to play?
If you don’t get into the first league, keep checking in on our platform because we plan to open up weekly contests that only last a weekend.
Can I join with a group of friends?
Be sure to refer your friends to join the league with you! Once in the league, you can track each other on the leaderboard and see who wins bragging rights each week. Also, you can create a private leaderboard with just your friends!
I want to create a small, private league with just my friends. Where is this feature?!
It's coming! We are planning to have this available ASAP, timing is still TBD.
How do I receive my winnings?
At the season, all winners will have money added to their E1 Fantasy account. They will then identify where they want their winnings to be transferred via Paypal.

How is E1 Fantasy different from something like DraftKings?
We put a unique twist on traditional fantasy, designing a scoring system that mirrors the in-game player experience and allows players to earn bonus points for predicting exactly how the game will be played out. E1 Fantasy is built by gamers, for gamers, so we designed it around the video game experience we all have come to love.
What are some examples of features that Esports One has?
E1 Fantasy allows users to go a step deeper into the lineup process, incorporating player bonuses to the construction process, like rewarding users for predicting what Champion a player will pick. Also, E1 Fantasy gives users access to extensive research tools and expert content, so you can research your lineup using advanced stats without ever leaving the page.
How does E1 Fantasy calculate a player’s Elo rating?
Esports One tracks the strength of each team over time, awarding and deducting ratings points based on expected outcomes and actual results. This system tracks everything from the movement of players between teams, margins of victory, and other subtle factors that give clues about a team's actual strength relative to the rest of their league -- and the world.

Is my information private?
