Riot Games is hosting a big-scale League of Legends tournament this October.
The Season Two world championship tournament playoffs will be held from October 4 to October 6, with the finals taking place on October 13. The tournament will be held at the LA Live in Los Angeles, California.
The four highest-scoring teams will duke it out in a best-of-three single-elimination match. The two top teams from there will advance to the grand finals which will adopt the best-of-five format. The winning team from the finals will receive $1 million; a total of $2 million will be split among 12 teams that entered the world championships.
dota and sc2 are better in literally no way. maybe those games WERE the biggest but they aren't anymore. LoL has bigger tournaments, more prize money, more players, and more viewers @2bitSmOkEy
so much towards the biggest, most played and most watched game in the worlds. haters gonna hate but a million dollar in prize money is no joke. this is a sport
@StarkJJ I know rite? Almost as much of a waste as the billions of dollars that get poured into the NFL every year.
@StarkJJ Or maybe spend it on the WASP Alliance for the De-Africanization of America?
Like seriously, there are many more worse ways to spend that money. Making gamers test their skill to get it is pretty harmless.
