League of Legends is one of the biggest eSports titles out there, achieving 14.7 thousand concurrent viewers at last year’s Worlds. As such, the team likes to add things to the game to honor certain waypoints and milestones that come during the eSports season. For example, the Mid-Season Invitational for League of Legends is coming, and the Riot Games team is showing off some of the items that’ll affect the prize pool.
From now until May 25th, you’ll be able to get the first in a new line of skins for League of Legends titled the “Conqueror” line. This was made and named specifically for the invitational to truly show off the desire to conquer your foes and be the last one standing. The best part, or at least the best part for those who will be in the invitational, is that 25% of all profits made from the skin (which is in the store to purchase) will be put into the prize pool for the Mid-Season Invitational.
But even if you’re not in the invitational, there’s still a reason to get the skin, and the bundle that can come with it. For not only does it look dang good, but the bundle will feature items that will not be coming back to the store, meaning you have the chance to get some exclusive items. Mainly, a border and icon of Conqueror Karma. The skins will return during certain events, but these will not.
Finally, you’ll be able to represent your region and prove which has the most loyal players during the MSI 2017 Fandom Contest. The more your region plays (with the MSI 2017 Icon attached) the more your points rise. With more points, you’ll earn special rewards for your region. The event is already underway, so don’t miss out on representing your League of Legends region and earn cool stuff in the process.
