The 2020 League of Legends World Championship is rapidly approaching—and so is this year’s Pick’em.

Following the play-in stage on Sept. 30, you’ll have the chance to drag and drop your predictions in the order you think the groups will play out.

Once the group stage has finished, you’ll then be able to pick the winners for each match during the knockout stage and ultimately settle on who you think will hoist the Summoner’s Cup and earn the 2020 World Championship title.

  • Earn 34 points: Poro Forecaster summoner icon
  • Earn 50 points: Poro Sage summoner icon

This year, the group stage, quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals also have rewards for simply taking part.

  • Groups: 500 blue essence
  • Quarters: 500 blue essence and random champion shard
  • Semis: 500 orange essence
  • Finals: Hextech chest and key

For correctly guessing every stage of the competition, though, you’ll receive bigger and better prizes.
