The 2018 World Championship Pick’em Challenge will go live on Oct. 9, giving League of Legends fans the chance to win in-game prizes by predicting the outcome of this year’s tournament.
When Pick’em goes live, fans can shift teams in each group into the order they expect them to finish at the end of the Group stage on Oct. 17. On Oct. 18, you’ll then be able to decide which teams they think will get the furthest in the Knockout stage for a chance at winning prizes.
Anyone who participates in the event will receive a 2018 participation icon to use on your League in-game account. Those who manage to predict a lot of the games correctly and score 34 points or more will receive a special icon to commemorate their achievements.
Anyone who pulls off the impossible and successfully predicts everything correctly for both the Group stage and Knockout stage will receive all five of League’s ultimate skins, including Elementalist Lux, Pulsefire Ezreal, Spirit Guard Udyr, DJ Sona, and Gun Goddess Miss Fortune.
Alongside the usual Pick’ems format, there will also be in-game missions available for each stage. Each mission will reward players with 10 Worlds tokens that can be spent on the Worlds Season loot in League.
If you want to participate in the 2018 World Championship Pick’em Challenge, head over to the League website on Oct. 9 to lock in your predictions before groups start a day later. Brackets must be completed before matches start, or else you won’t be able to take part.
