As Worlds 2020 kicks off in Shanghai, you too can take part at home. The in-game League of Legends Worlds 2020 event is almost here, with plenty of skins, missions, rewards, and more to pick up to celebrate the 10th World Championship.

Worlds 2020 is just about here. As the pro teams gear up ahead of the September 25 start in Shanghai, you can get in on the action at home. There’s a Clash tournament running alongside Worlds, and as always with the big dance, there’s a huge in-game event too.

This event is one of the biggest in League history ⁠— and yes, we’ve said that quite a few times in the last 12 months. Riot keep upping the stakes every time though, and in commemoration of the 10th World Championship, they are really putting on a show.

There’s plenty of rewards on offer, including double the Prestige points compared to regular events. New skins, chromas, and more are also waiting for players taking part. Curious? We’ve got everything you need to know here.

It’s time to Take Over with the Worlds 2020 event.

What skins are part of the Worlds 2020 event?

For now, we know one skin line will definitely feature at Worlds 2020 ⁠— the new Dragonmancer set. There are skins for Ashe, Aurelion Sol, Brand, Lee Sin, and Sett, the latter of whom is getting a Prestige skin too.

If it wasn’t clear in the name, the skins are all Dragon themed. From clothes made out of the scales of slain beasts, to mythical effects brandishing their gauntlets and bows, the Dragonmancer skin line is both stunning and deadly.

However, it’s likely another skin line will feature at Worlds 2020. Riot have done multi skin-line events in the past, like at Worlds 2019, so expect to see a new release soon. There’s also files for Odyssey skins floating around. However, K/DA skins anyone?

Surely Riot release a new set of K/DA skins with Seraphine, right?

League Worlds 2020 event pass

As with every event, there’s a Worlds pass on offer to help you get the most rewards. This one is a bit more valuable than past ones though ⁠— there’s 50 Prestige points on the line instead of 25.

The Worlds 2020 pass will set you back 1650 RP, or 2650 RP if you bundle it with the Obsidian Dragon Sett skin (a saving of 350 RP). It’ll automatically come with 200 tokens and 4 Worlds 2020 orbs, and will give you access to 30 milestone missions to farm some extra rewards.

These milestone missions can be completed by playing games of League of Legends or Teamfight Tactics. You get more points for wins, but as long as you are consistently playing, you should be in good stead to hit all of the rewards. You can find the Milestone rewards below:

What missions are part of the League Worlds 2020 event?

On top of the milestone missions, there’s regular missions everyone can complete ⁠— pass or not. These missions will require you to play as champions of the new Dragonmancer skin line, as well as obviously watch some of the Worlds 2020 action in Shanghai.

There are a bunch of tokens on the line through these missions, so if you want to pick up some rewards at the end of the event, be sure to start grinding. While the base missions won’t be enough for the Prestige skin, you can still grab some goodies without it.

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.

Riot Games
FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

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.

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.”
