The All-Star Paris 2014 is an international invitational tournament hosted by Riot Games held on May 8th-11th 2014 in Paris, France. It consists of two events: the All-Star Invitational and the All-Star Challenge.
Serving as the main event, the All-Star Invitational will bring together the regional winners of the NA LCS, EU LCS, LPL, GPL, and OGN Champions. These five teams will duke it out in group stage play, with the top four advancing to a best-of-three semifinal. The winners will meet in a best-of-five final to compete for the $50,000 winner-take-all prize.
At the beginning of each day of competition, players will be able to watch the All-Star Challenge, a series of games featuring two mixed region rosters. Fans will not only be able to elect two pros from their region to play in the Challenge event, they will also be able to cast their votes to influence aspects of the game modes that the pros play.
Mitch "Krepo" Voorspoels, Christopher "MonteCristo" Mykles, Martin "Deficio" Lynge, Trevor "Quickshot" Henry and David "Phreak" Turley will be part of the All-Star analyst desk. Eefje "sjokz" Depoortere will be the host of the tournament. Leigh "Deman" Smith, Joshua "Jatt" Leesman, Joe Miller and Sam "Kobe24" Hartman-Kenzler are the first announced English casters for the tournament. The commentary on the venue will be in French by Shaunz, Hyrqbot, Chips and Noi.
