The LCS is returning after a two-week break and to celebrate its return, viewers will be able to receive skins just for tuning in on the action. Here is how players can earn skins for watching the LCS.

The LCS took a two-week break during its Spring split as the league’s studio was being used by Riot’s other esports league, VCT Americas. Fans of the show were left to watch other leagues around the world as North American franchises waited in the wing to return to the stage.

With its return just days away, the LCS commissioner Mark ‘MarkZ’ Zimmerman has told fans that the league is giving away hundreds of skins over its first day back in the studio.

The league head also revealed that the North American region will be the first to play on patch 14.4.

The LCS is moving to the Riot Arena soundstage and playing without a live audience this weekend, leading to the special promotions and unique atmosphere..
