Riot Games have announced that League of Legends players will soon have new ways to get their hands on Prestige Points in the game.

Prestige Points are a new in-game currency that have been added to the popular MOBA in 2019, first announced as part of the 9.1 patch.

These coins can be used to unlock cosmetic items inside League of Legends, and here’s everything you need to know about the currency, and how you can earn them.

What are Prestige Points in League of Legends?

Prestige Points are an in-game currency that can be used to purchase prestige edition skins from the store for some of their favorite champions, such as Kali or Aatrox.

Prestige Skins are available in the game for a period of one year, giving anyone who wants to purchase them plenty of time to rack up Prestige Points.

How do I earn Prestige Points in League of Legends?

Originally, League of Legends players only had one way they could unlock Prestige Points, but on April 2, Riot Games announced that they planned to open up more avenues that allowed players to earn Points, that they could then use to buy skins.

Prestige Points can be used to unlock special skins like Aatrox.

Masterwork Chests

Originally, Masterwork Chests were the only way players could get Prestige Points. Masterwork Chests are available to purchase in the in-game store, with the price set at 165 RP per chest. Players can also buy bundles, which saves RP if you intend to buy more than one.

Event Passes

Riot Games continue to host new events throughout the year in League, and now players will be able to purchase Prestige Points in the Event Shop when a new one launches.

The store will offer a one-time purchase of 100 Prestige Points who want to use them to unlock the event skin. There is no confirmed price for how much this will cost, but Riot have said that it will be “a bit higher than the price of the event skin on offer.”

Players can purchase Masterwork Chests in League of Legends to earn Prestige Points.

Milestone Missions

Players who purchase the Event Pass won’t have to spend any more if they don’t want to, as the passes will now include Milestone Missions. These missions will reward players with extra Prestige Points, meaning if you would rather play to unlock the prestige skins, you can do so without splashing any more cash.

There is currently no official word on when these new ways to access Prestige Points will be implemented, but LoL fans will be happy to know that they are on the way, and will likely be added to the game in the near future.

T1 & LS respond to League of Legends coach controversy

Both Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare and T1 have responded to the mass backlash against the iconic Korean organization seemingly ignoring LoL fan toxicity.

When Korean League of Legends behemoths T1 by mistake leaked that Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare would be the organization’s new coach, T1 fans went wild.

In a story that has gone viral, die-hard T1 fans have been seen giving LS racial and homophobic abuse online, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending mysterious packages to her address. For many, T1’s lack of substantial response up until this point has been considered as them condoning the abuse, and the controversy has caused many a fan to stray away from the T1 fold.

So while it’s taken some time, both parties have finally spoken out on the situation in an attempt to clarify what has been happening behind the scenes.

One of the most famous pictures from this event is of a T1 fan’s van being parked outside T1’s HQ demanding LS’ removal.

T1 apologizes

A lengthy apology was released via Twitlonger from CEO Joe Marsh regarding the LS situation on November 24. The document is largely an apology towards the T1 fanbase for not speaking out quicker, and in turn, allowing the fans to be slandered and attacked by the press.

Marsh claims that T1 fans and South Koreans, in general, have been made victims of “unfair generalizations about their cultures, moral, and character” due to being “accused of harassing LS.” Additionally, the apology covers the unacceptable abuse towards LS that had been left on the organization’s discord, apologizing to the fans for any upset these may have caused.

T1 player Lee ‘Effort’ Sang-ho also receives T1’s condolences, as T1 did not come to his defense after the LS news was leaked accidentally on his stream.

However, most League of Legends fans were concerned with LS, who only gets mentioned at the end of the Twitlonger in a paragraph that reads as more interested in appeasing the fans than addressing any abuse and doxxing. While Marsh confirms that a “police report” has been filed regarding the package sent to LS’ mother, there seems to be very little apology directed only to LS.

LS’ video response

In a 14-minute long YouTube video, LS addresses the T1 situation and his future with the organization. While he had initially been chosen to join the T1 content creation team, questions were asked whether or not he would like to move up to the role as a coach.

While expressing that it would be a dream come true, LS clarifies that he was happier with the content role.

He expresses his apologies for any previous support of bbq Olivers’ Sebastian ‘Malice’ Edholm’s racist remarks, noting that he had not seen the messages containing the offensive comments before he endorsed the player. As a man living in South Korea who calls it home, it’s clear LS would never knowingly have participated in defending racism despite T1 fans claiming otherwise.

As for the future, LS has chosen to remain in Korea. He states that “for all the years that teams wanted me to leave Korea and go coach elsewhere or join a different org, or join different teams; one thing’s always remained true and that’s that I love Korea and I don’t want to leave here. T1 is going to enable me to be able to do everything I’ve always wanted to do and more.”

So while this may not be the dramatic response that many fans were hoping for, LS seems prepared for a bright future regardless.
