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.
We're excited to announce that the 2020 League of Legends All-Star Event will take place from December 18-20! #AllStar2020

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.

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.
