Esports News – The League of Legends World Championship may be over, but Riot Games has more surprises to offer for the rest of the year. The 2020 All-Star Event returns next month from December 18 to 20, featuring regional events, top-tier LoL team showdowns, and limited-edition cosmetic items.

Riot Games announced the schedule of the event on the official LoL Esports news site. Addressing the fans and introducing the All-Star event as a friendly competition, Riot said:

“All-Star is a celebration of our sport’s most-loved personalities. We know fans look forward to ASE as a time to come together for some friendly global competition – so we aimed to include as much inter-regional gameplay as possible.”

LoL All-Star: Run The Rift 2020 shifts to an online format in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, there’s a new tournament format for the participating regions—LCK, LPL, LCS, and LEC—and attending esports personalities.

Professional LoL players and influencers will be playing from their home or regional studio. They follow a new All-Star format divided into two divisions: Underdog Uprising and Superstar Showdown, which adds more unique LoL odds markets for betting enthusiasts out there and those who want to dip their toes in esports betting.

UNDERDOG UPRISING

On December 18, Riot hosts head-to-head matches between neighboring regions. Smaller regions compete against powerhouse regions, hence the name ‘Underdog Uprising’. Teams consist of top pros as voted by fans.

SUPERSTAR SHOWDOWN

From December 19 to 20, the All-Star event features three superteams from the LCK, LCS, LEC, and LPL. LCK and LPL will compete on Saturday, while the LCS and LEC play on Sunday.

LCK & LPL – Saturday, Dec. 19

Queue Kings & Legends – Non-pros compete in a Bo1 match on the Summoner’s Rift.

All-Stars – The five most popular pros voted by fans from the LCK and LPL play in a best-of-three showdown.

LCS & LEC – Sunday, Dec. 20

Queue Kings & Legends – Non-pros compete in a Bo1 match on the Summoner’s Rift.

All-Stars – The top pros voted by fans from the LCS and LEC draft “dream teams” consisting of five players. Captains from the competing teams pick at least two pros from their regions. These teams then compete in a Bo3.

Aside from the specific regional tournaments, all competing regions also have a special Red Bull 1v1 Competition. The first stage goes live on December 18, while the semis and finals take place from December 19 to 20.

The All-Star Voting sponsored by Alienware takes place from November 9 to 16. This year, Riot allows voting of one pro in each role from multiple leagues, so fans should ready their lineups of favorite players as early as now.
