The Season Two Championship site and Championship Riven.

Posted on at 9:59 AM by Moobeat
The Season 2 World Championship is imminent and Riot has finally put up additional details!

Included in their post is information about ticket presales, event times, an FAQ about events, and a sneak peak at the swag bag you could receive for attending the World Finals, featuring Ryze & Tryndamere Statues, a Riven Championship Skin, and a Riven Championship Summoner Icon.

The championship event will be broken down into two separate events; The World Playoffs and the World Finals.

The first event is the World Playoffs and it spans from Thursday, October 4th, until Saturday, October 6th. During this time the top twelve teams from NA, EU, Korea, China, and SEA will battle it out to see who deserves the title of World Champion.

The second event is the World Finals and will be hosted Saturday October 13th. This event will feature a fierce competition between the two best teams to come out of the playoffs. The winner of this event will be crowned the League of Legends Season 2 World Championship and walk away with a hefty cash prize.

Both events are being held in Southern California and tickets go on sale Friday, August 31, at 10:00 am Pacific time. According to Magus, an eSports Manager at Riot, their will be two types of tickets available depending on where in the stadium you want to sit, $70 for the "lower level" tickets and $40 for the "upper level".


For attending the World Finals event in person, Summoners will receive a plump goodie bag featuring several items, including a limited edition, custom-made statue of Ryze and Tryndamere, a free Season Two Championship Riven skin you can unlock before it's released to the Store, a Season Two Championship Riven commemorative summoner icon ( no preview yet ), and more!

Riot put up some small previews of the big ticket swag bag items:
Limtied edition Ryze and Tryndamere Statue
"This free, exclusive, custom-made statue of Ryze and Tryndamere stands at approximately 10 inches in height."
Season Two Championship Riven skin
"Commemorate the Season Two Championship with this free Riven skin that you can unlock before it's available in the store."

To clarify about how to get the limited Championship Riven summoner icon:
"Watch the Season Two World Finals! We will be broadcasting a code during the event that you can redeem to unlock this commemorative summoner icon."

To clarify about how to get the limited Championship Riven skin:
"The skin will be sold during a weekend after the World Championship. After that sale, it will no longer be available."

  3. No, it's a skin to commemorate the Season 2 Championship. It'll be available after the tournament.
    The Icon will have a code that will be broadcasted during the Championship.
    ...Of course, if you attend the World Finals on Oct 13, it'll save you the trouble and get both plus the Statues.
    I wanted to go to finals badly after going to IPL SF Showoff, but now seeing this just hit the berserk button. I MUST GO I MUST GO. XD

  5. I just want an ELO reset already. Seasons are too damn long.

    1. Why would you want a ELO reset, noone gets profit from a ELO Reset.
      Bad players will fall down to their elo again, good players will have to get a lot of elo back, especially the first places.

    3. That's how they do it. Its obvious where it will be, but they make sure we know about it even when ingame. :D

      That Riven skin, hmm, I'll wait and see how it looks and probably buy it, since LA is kinda on the other side of the planet for me, lol.

    1. Not really like Victorious J4 since everyone can get it :)

    2. I was talking more about her style ... the silver armor with blue gems(maybe) and the look of her sword resemble a lot Victorious Jarvan

      Delete
  12. She looks like Cloud from FFVII. God, I hope not.... from Bunny Girl to "???". We'll just have to wait and see.

    1. You are obviously not a fan of Final Fantasy 7 or at least not Cloud.
      But personally i like Clouds design, he does not have 10 belts on him like other final fantasy characters, all he has is a harness with 1 belt.

      And honestly, tell me that this isn't cool:

      And as a badass bonus (NSFW - gore):

      TL:DR I like this skin.

    2. The Riven/Cloud mix looks good. I hope that's what they're giving away. I would really enjoy Riven with that costume.

  19. So playoff tickets are sold out, and the finals ticket sale website doesn't say anything about them....are the finals tickets sold out as well? I pray it isn't..

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm not sure to be honest! I've heard finals tickets aren't sold out.

    2. OP here, as it turns out, finals tickets aren't sold out right now. Apparently the payment site doesn't work when it comes to mobile, so I guess computers are the only way to go here, lol.

  20. Darn, so we have to wait till around October 13th for the new Riven skin! Riot tease!

  21. Moobeat, Have you heard anything about them giving out victorious jarvan skin again at the end of season 2 to gold and platinum players?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. doubtful. it will probably be a new skin.

      Delete
    2. I know there should be a new skin, but I was wondering if you thought they would give out the old skins (victorious j4, judgement kayle) as well.
