Today, compLexity.Red will compete in their first NA Coke Zero Challenger Series match under the compLexity banner as they take on the Chinese LMQ at 7:00PM EST.

The NA Coke Zero Challenger Series is a Challenger league that runs alongside the LCS for the entire 2014 season and a direct bridge into the LCS. Twenty teams from the Challenger ladder will be placed into five brackets of four, where the top five teams will be placed into Challenger Series #1.
