What about Latin American teams, LoL is very popular in countries like Brazil or Chile, Sure you can find competitive teams here.

...Will Change Everything
Riot. Buddies. Bros. You really had to go there? D:

That phrase is so badly cliched on television ads, teasers and previews that I get a kneejerk reaction every time I hear it. What is "Everything?" exactly and why is it going to "Change?" More often than not any teaser that uses this line builds up to disappointment when the show airs and... well.... nothing changes. :c

One of my main concerns would be is it possible for a "no name" team to qualify for this? If so how would one's team go about qualifying?

The Championship Series will have a regular season. You'll be able to see regular season games played on a weekly basis (multiple nights a week).

There will be LAN events (MLG, IPL, IEM, etc.) happening as well, which you'll be able to see at a similar frequency to Season Two.

With the Season Two World Championship only two months away and the Regional tournaments about to heat up, all eyes will be on some of the most exciting matches in League of Legends history. Everything’s on the line for teams looking ahead to Season Three. The top three teams from the EU & NA Regionals at Gamescom and PAX will each qualify for the League of Legends Championship Series, a completely new league coming in Season Three.

The League of Legends Championship Series is a global league of the top professional, salaried teams and will feature a structured season with multiple matches per week and playoff events leading up to the World Championship. Even better, all of this coverage will be free to watch live in HD. The best eight teams from North America and Europe, plus top teams from each Asian region, will compete for regional dominance. Winners from each region will then battle for the World Championship title with millions of dollars in prizes up for grabs. Furthermore, our Challenger Circuit partners will be back and better than ever, hosting major tournaments that will act as the proving grounds for the next generation of teams vying for a shot at competing in the League of Legends Championship Series.

We’ll have more details after the Season Two World Champions are crowned in Los Angeles on October 13, 2012. Until then, catch all of our coverage of Gamescom and PAX and witness the greatest teams in the world compete for a spot in the Season Two World Championship and the upcoming League of Legends Championship Series.

Let’s recap:

  • The League of Legends Championship Series: the top eight teams from the US and EU, plus top teams from the Asian regions
  • The top three teams from Gamescom and PAX immediately qualify
  • Weekly regional pro League of Legends matches live, for free, in HD
  • Millions of dollars at stake
  • Regular season, regional playoffs and a spectacular World Championship
  • Critical Challenger Circuit events featuring up-and-coming teams vying for a shot at the League of Legends Championship Series

Don't mean to be probing, but does that then mean EU + KR + NA teams will be playing each other online? What servers / how will you deal with latency between the different regions?
