League of Legends season 2 with the astonishing $5 million prize pool!

The second season of LoL will feature a fifty times bigger prize pool. Riot Games seem to be very thankful to their players and as a reward for all the enthusiasm and fast growth of their fanbase, they have increased the cash. League of Legends has already set multiple viewership records and it was only natural that they would rush towards a new one.

The last two weeks Riot’s rivals Valve got all people’s attention with  ‘The International’ which holds a 1.6 million dollars prize pool. Obviously, the creators of LoL needed something even more exciting to shake things a little bit. Riot scratched their beards and thought: ‘A $1,6 million prizepool? What about a 5 million prize pool?’

The money will be split among local, national and international tournaments. Weekly livestreams will be provided for starters featuring the ongoing regional tournaments in North America and both European environments.

Season two is coming this fall and with 5 million up for grabs, e-sports just gets bigger and bigger!
