Editor’s Note: We’ve updated the post to reflect that League Unlocked will be available at Microsoft Store locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, and that Echo Fox’s Froggen and Peter Zhang will be attending the launch event at the Microsoft Store at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles on Saturday, Aug. 26.
Microsoft Store is teaming up with ASUS Republic of Gamers and HyperX to host weekly League of Legends events at Microsoft Store locations across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. We’re inviting gamers at every skill level to unite with others in their local community to form teams and battle against one another on high-powered Windows 10 ROG G752VS gaming laptops with ROG Gladius mice, Whetstone mouse pads and HyperX Cloud II headsets. Sign up individually or with a team to compete in a single-elimination bracket tournament for a chance to win unique prizes and participate in giveaways.
With ROG Arena at Microsoft Store locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, gamers will play League Unlocked, a premium experience made available for official League of Legends partners and live events. In League Unlocked, all champions and over 100 skins will be – you guessed it – unlocked for the duration of the event, and players can earn an extra 20 percent IP and 50 percent XP for their personal accounts. Also, with a little luck (and a few well-timed ults!), you could even receive prizes like mystery icons, RP, unique swag courtesy of ASUS ROG or the elusive Triumphant Ryze skin.
Also, on Saturday, Aug. 26, Microsoft Store at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles and ASUS will host a special launch event from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. PDT, where players will have a chance to meet gaming content creators like Twitch streamer Pokimane and Echo Fox’s Froggen and Peter Zhang. The event is open to the public, and attendees will be treated to a photo experience, raffle prizes and ROG giveaways.
This is just one of the many tournaments that gaming and esports fans can enjoy at Microsoft Store. Check out Mixer.com/MicrosoftStore and the Microsoft Store Facebook page for the latest gaming events and streams, as well as how you can take part at your local Microsoft Store.
We’ll see you on the Rift!
