The All-Star Match, an event that ends the year of the League of Legends League, will be held from December 18th to 20th.
Riot Games announced through its official website that the Stars’ Feast, All-Star, will be held for three days from December 18th to 20th, and will be conducted mainly online due to the Corona 19 virus.
The All-Star Game is a festival held by the most beloved players in the League of Legends e-sports world. Riot Games has made major changes to the way it is played for fans who are expecting a regional confrontation.
The 2020 All-Star Game will be held online. Accordingly, professional players and influencers compete at home or in regional studios. In this All-Star Game, a new method was adopted, divided into two stages:’Underdog Rebellion’ and’Star Wars’.
A confrontation called the Underdog’s Rebellion takes place on December 18th. The battle between the weaker regions and the powerful neighboring region leagues takes place throughout the day. The participating teams are composed of the best professional players selected through the votes of fans.
The Star Wars takes place on December 19th and 20th. Three super teams will compete in each of the four major regions, including Korea (LCK), North America (LCS), Europe (LEC), and China (LPL). The LCK and LPL will be playing on the virtual stage on Saturday and the LCS and LEC on Sunday. Regional confrontations held on the 19th and 20th will be held in a way where amateurs and former professional players compete in a single game in Summoner’s Rift. In the All-Star Match, the five professional players who won the most votes in each region will compete in a matchup in the best of three matches, and special elements will be added.
In addition, the Red Bull 1v1 special game will be held in each of the four regions. The first game will be available on December 18, and the semi-finals and finals will be available on December 19-20.
Riot Games expects that the delay time (ping) will be high due to the physical limitations of online play between regions, but the All-Star Match has been specially selected to provide a pleasant experience to all players and viewers.
Riot Games said, “We will work closely with different regions to optimize latency as much as possible in a given situation to select the optimal server location for each and every game.”
