The LoL 2020 All-Star event is back, but it’s not going to be in person like Worlds 2020. Instead, Riot are hosting an online event like the Mid-Season Streamathon, highlighting the best players from across the world, starting on December 18.

The League of Legends season is now over for 2020. After the end of the World Championship, players are putting their feet up in the off-season ⁠— either locking themselves in with their old teams for 2021, or shifting rosters and regions.

However, they’re also taking part in LoL 2020 All-Star. The world’s best players from all regions are taking part in the fun to cap off Season 10. However, there’s a bit of a change this year compared to last All-Star events: it’s being held online.

Riot are trying to make sure all regions can take part by pairing nearby regions together. They’re also putting on a fun-yet-competitive series of events, with tons of money going towards charity.

When is LoL 2020 All-Star?

The 2020 All-Star tournament will kick off on December 18 and will run until December 20. Different events featuring different regions will take place on every single day.

The event will be streamed on the Riot Games Twitch channel, as well as on lolesports.com. We’ve embedded the Twitch stream below for your convenience.

What events are on at LoL 2020 All-Star?

The All-Star tournament will be divided into two stages: Underdog Uprising and Superstar Showdown.

The Underdog Uprising will feature the world’s best regions, including the LCK, LPL, LCS, and LEC, taking on their minor region neighbours, who will be attempting to upset the big names.

The Superstar Showdown will feature superteams from each of the four major regions, made up of former pros, top influencers, and the All-Star squads. They’ll be taking part in some Summoner’s Rift games with a twist ⁠— good timing, given preseason 11 will be out by then.

There’ll also be the 1v1 competition, which has crowned legends like Bwipo and Caps as the world’s best duelists.

Cloud9 TenZ reveals big Valorant changes he wants from future updates

Cloud9’s TenZ has become a behemoth in the Valorant world, so when he speaks people listen. A recent Twitter thread to Riot Games has shown several game features that need fixed.

Former CS:GO pro turned Valorant legend Tyson ‘Tenz’ Ngo has always openly expressed his opinions on Riot Games’ flagship FPS – be them positive or negative.

On a recent stream the player effectively ended the Phantom versus Vandal debate when he realised that the Vandal’s hip-fire is better than the former.

In a recent Twitter thread though, TenZ has challenged Valorant’s developers to make some essential adjustments to the game’s interface, picking up on this hip-fire accuracy issue once more.

TenZ is a Valorant legend so when he talks, people listen.

Adjustments that TenZ thinks Riot need to make to Valorant

In an extended Twitter rant about the current state of the game, TenZ had a lot to say about hip-fire, fire range, and ziplines.

TenZ’s first bone of contention is the accuracy associated with hip-fire. When running with rifles, the C9 legend claims that he can hits shots far too easily, and that to make the game more realistic and less overpowered Riot needs to adjust this.

The second part of his Tweet goes on to discuss the Classic. Noticing that when right-clicking and jumping the Classic seems to one-shot things at long range, he specifically asks Riot to adjust the damage dropoff for medium-long range shots. This is especially important when you consider the first round of every Valorant match is a pistol round.

The final adjustment that TenZ believes Riot has to implement is with zipwires. He has found out the hard way that when using the ziplines players have nearly perfect accuracy, again something that is both unrealistic and will give players easy kills if they take to the high ground.

Just to cement his case even further, he drops some videos showing exactly what he means in the comments, making his argument bulletproof (literally).

It’ll be interesting to see whether or not Riot takes these points into consideration on their next patch, or whether they’ll be dismissed as just a pro player having a good old Twitter rant.

Hopefully, this gets sorted as it makes the game a nightmare to play and will cause many a player to call it quits. We’ll see what happens in patch 1.13, but hopefully, it’ll be a lucky patch for TenZ.
