October is just around the corner, meaning that the League of Legends 2015 World Championship is too. Are you excited to see the best of the best go up against each other for money and glory? Good! Riot have detailed everything you need to know about the upcoming spectacle…

The Cash Dollar!

What’s a tournament of this scale without a fat purse of cash? Nothing I say! Here’s what the teams above will be competing for:

  • World Champion – $1,000,000 USD
  • 2nd place – $250,000 USD
  • 3rd / 4th place – $150,000 USD
  • 5th – 8th place – $75,000 USD
  • 9th – 12th place – $45,000 USD
  • 13th – 16th place – $25,000 USD

What I like about this cash split is that everybody wins some sort of money – even those who place last. $25,000 is hardly small change!

I do feel that Riot should maybe follow the same model that Valve have with their International event for Dota 2 though. Rope the players in, and let them help grow the prize pool in exchange for some cool in-game loot. $1,000,000 is still a fantastic prize, don’t get me wrong, but it could honestly be a much bigger number.

OMG ALL THE TEAMS
