The 2018 League of Legends All-Stars event is only a week away, and today, Riot finally revealed specific details of the event on the game’s main website.

Last year, fans were left wanting after the event, as it wasn’t the same goofy tournament it had been in years past. It appeared to be taken more seriously by Riot than before, and it lacked the certain charm and memeness that drew fans and even the players into enjoying it. Many were hoping that things would change this year, and it appears that may be the case, as there are way more fun activities and events on the docket.

Here is the complete guide to the event, including what activities there will be, which players and streamers will compete in them, and the dates of the broadcast.
