League of Legends Announces Highlight-Reel Drops That Will Reward Fans for Watching Live Action
Prestige points and skin shards are up for grabs
Get ready to be rewarded for tuning into live League of Legends official matches.
Riot Games has announced that major moments in the third week of the Summer Split for LCS and LEC play will be celebrated with Drops for fans who’ve tuned in on watch.lolesports.com. Up for the taking will be chromas, skin shards, Clash tickets, and prestige points, as well as promotions by LoL brand partners.
Each Drop will be sparked by a highlight-reel play, with a notification popping up to alert fans to rewards. Fans from all regions and servers around the globe will be eligible.
In announcing the Drops on its website, League of Legends said: “When specific moments occur during a match, such as Baron steals, pentakills, or a series going to the final game (cue Silver Scrapes), some of them will be celebrated with a Drop. You’ll be able to keep track of which Drops you’ve collected within the Drops tab on Watch.LoLEsports.com. Our goal is to expand the program to additional leagues once we’re confident it’s scaling well and adding to the fan experience.”
Fans will have to be logged into watch.lolesports.com with their League of Legends account to get in on the action. Rewards will only be available for live matches.
