League of Legends All-Star Event adopts Online format this Dec 2020

The 2020 League of Legends All-Star Event (ASE) commences this 18 – 20 December! The event will pivot to a purely online format to cap off a unique season.

Due to the format change, pros and influencers will be participating from their homes or regional studios. To accommodate this change, a total of two stages will be featured: Underdog Uprising and Superstar Showdown respectively.

Underdog Uprising

On 18 December, fans will be treated to head-to-head matches between neighbouring regions, where smaller regions will attempt to upset their nearby regional powerhouses. Teams will be made up of top pros that are voted by fans.

Superstar Showdown

From 19 – 20 December, three super teams will take the virtual stage:

During this period, duels will be happening across the board between the LCK and LPL, as well as the LCS and LEC respectively. At the start of each day, the Queue Kings and Legends will compete against each other in a Bo1 each on Summoner’s Rift. Towards the end of each day, the All-Stars will face off in a Bo3, with each region’s matchup sporting some unique match formats.

Throughout all three days, there will also be a special Red Bull 1v1 Competition within each of these four regions. The first stage starts on the 18th leading up to the Finals on the 20th.

Nothing but good vibes

Due to the physical limitations of cross-regional online play, players will be on higher ping than usual in-person events. Riot Games has assured that the best server location for every individual game will be picked to optimize ping as much as possible under these circumstances. 

On top of all this, most of the ASE matches played will see prize winnings being donated to a charity of their choosing!

How to vote for your favourite pros

The All-Star Voting Powered by Alienware will take place this 9 – 16 November. Fans will be able to vote for one pro in each role from as many leagues as they like. 

Fans can stay up to date via LoL Esports’ Twitter and catch all the matches via their official website.
