John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

The Play-In Stage of the League of Legends is now under way, and will see 12 teams separated into four groups do battle to take their place in the Play-In Knockout stage.

Teams within each group play a Double Round Robin format, which means that each team gets to play every other in their group twice.

The top two teams from each group will then proceed to the Play-In Knockouts. In this stage, the first place team from one group will play the second-place team from another.

Once these matches have concluded, we'll have our four teams who advance to the Group Stage, which takes place later on this month.

To help you stay on top of the action, we will be updating this article with the latest information about who's playing who and when.

We've also included a stream for you right here. If you're catching up after the event then you can do so at 8:00pm tonight, when the day's play will be re-broadcast.
