League of Legends Master Series

The League of Legends Master Series is a professional League of Legends league with teams from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Eight teams compete over two seasons to qualify for the League of Legends World Championship. Each LMS team is supported by Garena with NT$200,000, which does not include prize money. Teams from Hong Kong and Macau are provided with flights and accommodations, and will each get an additional NT$60,000. The beginning of the LMS coincided with the building of the Garena e-Sports Stadium, located on the first floor of an office building in Neihu, Taipei. An announcement was made by Garena in October 2014 about plans of creating a new league to separate Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau from the rest of the Garena Premier League of Southeast Asia. The league would have two seasons per year, spring and summer. The regional quota of two slots in the GPL and a single seed in the World Championship every year temporarily offset the dominance of the Taiwanese teams, but these conditions were not enough as the slots of the Southeast Asia in the World Championship 2014 were both filled by Taiwanese teams. As part of the changes to the 2015 GPL, the region consisting of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau left the GPL and began to compete instead in the League of LMS, which replaced the Nova League in Taiwan. This action was done to allow South East Asian teams a better chance at winning the GPL, as Taiwanese teams had won every GPL season.
