How to get a free League of Legends refund token

Riot Games are giving players a free League of Legends refund token at the start of 2020, and here’s how to claim it.

Refund tokens allow League of Legends players a bit more control over their purchases. Rather than having to contact Riot support if you misclick, or simply change your mind about an item, you can get your money back immediately with tokens.

In order to prevent abuse of the system, however, refund tokens are limited to three per account. In theory, once those three are used, players will have to go through the regular support system if they hope to get any items refunded.

Refund tokens can be used to return unwanted items like skins.

Fortunately for those who have chosen to use some of their refund tokens, however, at the start of 2020 Riot are offering another token for free. In order to receive it, all you need to do is go to the claim page on the League of Legends support site and log into your account.

There is still a limit of three per account, so if you’ve never used a token you won’t be able to collect a fourth. That being said, there’s no indication that the 2020 token offering has a time limit, so if you do end up using one this year, keep in mind that you can come back and replace it.

New champion purchases can also be refunded by tokens.

League of Legends is a free-to-play game, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things for players to spend their money on. While all champions can eventually be earned without having to drop any real money, they can also be bought directly to speed up the process, and many long-time players will eventually spend some money on skins and other cosmetics for their favorite champions.

It’s worth noting for those unfamiliar with the refund system that not all items are refundable. Certain purchases, including bundles, promotional items, and gifts, cannot be refunded with tokens, so if you’re not sure about a particular buy and may want to refund it, make sure you check whether that’s an option first.


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 hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

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.”
