The LPL 2021 Season awards Championship Points towards qualification for the World Championship.
- The winner of the Summer Playoffs automatically qualifies (AQ) for the Worlds 2021 Main Event as China's first seed.
- The team that has accrued the most championship points over the 2021 Season (and wasn't automatically qualified) also qualifies for the Main Event as China's second seed.
- China's third and fourth seeds (if there is) for Worlds are determined at the Regional Finals.
- The top 4 (3 if only 3 seeds) teams in championship points (that are not already qualified for Worlds) play in the Regional Finals.
