League of Legends 2014 All-Star event heads to Paris
Riot Games has announced that the 2014 League of Legends All-Star event will be held in Paris, France. The Le Zenith Arena will play host to the event which will take place from Thursday, May 8 to Sunday, May 11. The event will feature a new format that showcases competition from both the top teams and the favorite pro-players from each region.
Serving as the main event is the All-Star Invitational. This event will bring together five teams -- the regional winners of the NA LCS, EU LCS, LPL, GPL, and OGN Champions -- in group stage play. The top four will advance to a best-of-three semifinal, and the winners will meet in a best-of-five final to compete for a $50,000 prize.
At the beginning of each day will be The All-Star Challenge, a series of games featuring two "mixed rosters." Players will elect two pros from their region to play in the Challenger event, and will vote to "influence aspects of the modes that the pros play."
Tickets to the 2014 All-Star event will go on sale "soon," according to Riot.
