LoL: Watch Twitch Rivals: League of Legends Team Draft

Twitch Rivals: League of Legends Team Draft isn't the kind of tournament you're used to seeing — because it's not really meant to be competitive, but rather entertaining.

Team Captains will actually draft their teams from a pool of forty streamers, academy and LCS players including themselves just before the competition starts. Chaotic, pretty messy, this Team Draft is surely going to offer us some insane games, with players inting, smurfing and trolling.
