League of Legends players can claim a new free mystery skin through the Twitch Prime rewards program.

Twitch Prime comes as part of the Amazon Prime subscription, and gives users the ability to subscribe to one channel each month at no extra cost, as well as offering a variety of free loot in various games.

Riot Games are one of the developers partnered with Twitch Prime, and their latest offering for League of Legends is a free mystery skin token, which once claimed can be unlocked for a random look for one of the game’s 148 champions.

League of Legends players can claim a mystery skin for a random champion.

In order to claim the mystery skin, all you’ll need to do is got to the Twitch Prime rewards page and select the League of Legends offer to claim it. In order to receive the skin you’ll need to have your Riot account linked to your Twitch account, which can be done through the Connections tab in your Twitch account settings.

The League of Legends skin isn’t the only thing on offer from Riot Games right now. Those who are also interested in Teamfight Tactics, for which fans recently got a first look at the upcoming mobile version, can also claim a mystery little legend and a mystery emote.

This is the last month of Riot’s current scheduled offering for this type of reward, so make sure you grab them before it’s too late. It’s very possible, however, that more League of Legends rewards will be added to Twitch Prime in the future.

Those who don’t already have Twitch Prime may still be able to claim the loot by using the free one-month trial available to new users. During the time your free trial is active, you’ll be able to claim any loot through the rewards program.

If you’ve already used your free trial but still wish to unlock the rewards, a subscription to Amazon Prime will cost $12.99 per month, or $119 for a full year – although those eligible for a student discount can get it at half the price. Amazon Prime also comes with the other benefits and services provided by the service, such as faster delivery, Prime TV, and more.


FACEIT offer $55k pot for collegiate Valorant, CSGO & League of Legends

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

FACEIT will give aspiring esports players a chance to compete for cash in Valorant, LoL, and CSGO.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

The breakdown of target dates for FACEIT’s state-wide LoL events.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
