IECG/LSS World Championship Page


The IECG World Championship is not an open tournament, players cannot request participation themselves, they are invited to attend based on the conditions described in our IECG rules, section D.9.1.

Note that All started IECG World Championships will continue as Server Only tournaments. Starting with the with the World Championship 2014 Preliminaries (February 2010), the label will be changed from IECG to LSS.


This page should give you the latest information about the IECG/LSS World Championship Stages. It should be updated every couple of days just before a new stage starts, and less regularly in the meantime. To make the search easier, this page has been divided in four sections:

I.-  General remarks

II.- IECG/LSS World Championship schedule:

III.- Qualification lists for the oncoming tournaments

IV.- IECG World Champions

I.-  General remarks
