Own The Rift For Your Region

By RiotShantzilla

By equipping your region's icon, you'll join forces with fellow Summoners in a challenge to determine ‘Who Will Own The Rift?’ for their region. Games played with the icon equipped will count towards your region's points/standing in a contest of regional fandom that will culminate on May 15.

Point updates will be posted on the following dates:

  • Pre-Groups: May 3
  • Post-Groups: May 9
  • Pre-Knockout: May 12
  • Start of Final: May 15

For more details on the icon challenge, see below!

Starting April 27, players from the six regions competing at MSI (North America, Europe, Korea, China, LMS, and the winning region from the IWCI) will be able to purchase their region’s icon in store for 1 IP. If you want to represent a different region, you can purchase other regional icons in the store for 250 RP, but you can only participate in the icon challenge below for your home region.

The performance of teams at MSI will also contribute to the final point total, with the winning fan region receiving a Party IP Weekend. Regions who do not qualify for MSI will be able to purchase the MSI Icon for 1 IP in stores. To offset the implications of regions with larger player bases, points will be normalized and weighted based on the size of each region. The breakdown of points earned by teams competing at MSI for their regions is as follows:

  • 1st: 2000
  • 2nd: 1800
  • 3rd/4th: 1600
  • 5th: 1200
  • 6th: 1000

In addition to the reward for the icon competition, we will also be offering an exclusive MSI 2016 gilded regional icon to the region whose team wins the 2016 Mid­-Season Invitational. The winning icon will be available globally from May 20 - June 3 for 1 IP in the winning region and 250 RP in all other regions.
