Learn all about the rewards you can get for watching Worlds 2020 as well as how to participate in the Worlds Pick’em contest!

Worlds 2020 kicks off on Friday and fans across the globe are hyped to watch their teams play. But even if you’re not a fan of professional League of Legends, or your favorite team didn’t make Worlds 2020 (cut to teary-eyed Cloud9 fans), there’s still plenty of reasons to care about Worlds. Once again, the Worlds Pick’em contest returns to let fans show their knowledge about the best teams in the world, with in-game rewards on the line. Fans can also continue to earn rewards via loot drops just by watching the game!

You can find out more about the rewards, drops, and Pick’em contest at Riot’s official site, but if you want to get the quick rundown of what prizes you can get and how to win them, we got you covered!


If you were getting drops and rewards via the LCS and LEC watch program this summer, you’re in great shape, since the process will be essentially the same. If you didn’t participate and want to do so for Worlds, all you have to do is log-in to with your Riot account and watch the games while logged in. If certain key moments happen like a Baron steal or Pentakill, you automatically earn rewards just by watching. Check out breakdown of the process for claiming these drops here if you need a step-by-step breakdown.

  • Quarters: 500 BE + Random Champ Shard
  • Semis: 500 OE
