A total of 16 top Twitch streamers are competing today in the first Legends of Runeterra Twitch Rivals tournament with a total prize pool of $100,000. 

Each competitor has dabbled in LoR, but some of them are dedicated competitive players in the grassroots community and stream Riot’s new digital card game daily. Here are all the streamers playing in this event.

The format for today’s event is one-vs-one Conquest in a best-of-three format with an upper and lower bracket following three rounds of Swiss. If a player wins a game with a deck, they need to play the third unbanned build for the remaining games of a match.

Once split into brackets, players will compete for the top placement within each bracket and a slice of the total $100,000 prize pool.
