What’s being played?
The star event is, as always, the 1v1 tournament between all of the 32 pro players who are involved. Battling for the Draven Axe statue as the prize – as well as any bragging rights for being best 1v1 player at All Stars. Last year’s winner Uzi will of course be looking to defend his title. Also a 2v2 charity tournament featuring 16 pairs, each with one pro and one special guest personality. Whichever team wins will be awarded a donation to a charity of their choosing.
As for some other events, we’ll be seeing an ‘East vs West’ Showdown, which will be a 3-match feature with a rotating roster to see which set of pro player regions is really the best. A small P.S was announced by Riot that spectators should ‘watch out for a surprise ending’ so we should all be wary for whatever they have in store for this event. There’ll be smaller regional battles with ever present rivalry of EU vs NA and KR vs CN going head to head, to battle for simple bragging rights over the other region.
Finally, there’ll be Mixed Team Alternate Modes featuring a mix of pros, League Partners and other guest personalities fighting it out on some of the less conventional game modes – Nexus Blitz, URF and Tandem Mode.
If you get involved simply by watching, you’ll exclusive in-game content. For watching a single match you’ll receive the All-Star Icon, and for watching 12 of the events you’ll receive the All-Star Emote.
