League of Legends Season 2 Ends This Fall With A Huge Cash Payout

The second season of competitive play for the vastly popular creep defense game League of Legends will draw to an end on October 13th this year. It will take place in Los Angeles, California and there’s some fifty prize money to win. All together the winner can walk away with $3 million in their pockets as the reigning champion.

Teams from all over the world have been competing for their chance to qualify for the regional championships since last November. The regional matches will be held all over starting in July this year. On August 16th at Gamescom as well as August 31st at PAX Prime, matches will be held for spectators to see during the events at the time. Twelve teams who make it out of the regionals will then travel to the University of Southern California arena to compete in the championships this fall.

The championship from last year gained around 1.7 million viewers total, which goes to show just how many people have interest in the game. League of Legends is played by tons of PC gamers from around the world, and it almost always is a standard for multiplayer tournaments at LAN events. Riot Games has already doled out more than $1 million in prize money to competitors this season, and it’s just as rewarding to the developer to see the enthusiasm in their fans as it is to those winning the cash. Are you ready to check out the Season 2 championships?
