The final League of Legends event of 2019 is approaching, with All-Stars set to take place on December 5-7.

All-Stars will be the final chance for League of Legends players around the world to face off this year, and provide some more light-hearted entertainment for fans after the intensity of the World Championship concluded the real competitive season.

For viewers, it will also offer some League of Legends action to fill the off-season gap between Worlds and the return of domestic competition early in the new year.

The event is set to offer everything from full-blown team matches on Summoner’s Rift to 1v1s and even Teamfight Tactics, and here’s everything you need to know to keep up with the action

What is All-Stars?

All-Stars is a fun event that sees some of the worlds top League of Legends players and personalities come together to fight for regional glory in a variety of challenges.

While the event once acted as one of the limited occasions on which the various regions around the world could clash in somewhat-serious competition, with the advent of the likes of the Mid-Season Invitational and the various Rift Rivals events, All-Stars has instead become a more light-hearted way to cap off the season.

All-Stars will feature representatives not only from the major regions, but also from several of the developing regions, although not all regions will send the same number of players.

The following matches will take place during All-Stars.

  • 1v1 tournament

Fnatic finally reveal Upset as Rekkles replacement in ADC for LEC 2021

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
