Last year we introduced a new type of reward system for the EU LCS in Berlin. We wanted to make the rewards more engaging and let people rank up for visiting the studio and cheering on their favorite teams. Based on the feedback we received we evolved the system to offer a wider range of rewards and to be more accessible for attendees from far away.
If you're familiar with last year's system, here's the TL;DR on what's changed:
There are new prizes for each tier
You only need three visits per tier instead of five
It's now faster for people who have travelled from outside of Germany to level up
Here's how it works: you'll start the season in Silver - because let's be honest, EU fans place higher than Bronze. Each time you visit the EU LCS you'll gain a stamp on your card, and once you've collected enough of them you'll unlock cool rewards and climb to higher ranks - all without Elo decay.
Once your Silver card is full, you’ll be promoted to Gold (card tier, not in game), which will unlock new items and let you rise the ranks, all the way to Diamond.
HOW CAN I GET A REWARD CARD?
That’s easy- come to the EU LCS studio in Berlin and you’ll get your Silver card at the entrance.
HOW DO I GET STAMPS?
You get a guaranteed stamp for every visit to EU LCS. Occasionally, there will be other ways to obtain stamps, which we will share inside the studio.
WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?
- League of Legends branded Swag Bag filled with League-styled stress balls, a lanyard and a Rammus keychain!
- Exclusive EU LCS poster signed by the on-air talent team
- Unlock Gold Rank
- Open up that legacy vault and unlock one free Worlds skin of your choice!
- Guided backstage tour of the EU LCS Studio!
- Unlock Platinum Rank
- Exclusive Teemo Statue, not available anywhere else!
- No promo curse for you - you instantly unlock Diamond Rank. You may not get a shiny border, but you do get...
- Free entry to EU LCS shows in the Berlin studio for the rest of the 2018 season.
- Backstage meet and greet with your favorite EU LCS team or a member of the on-air broadcast team!
WHERE DO I COLLECT MY REWARDS?
Rewards and higher tier cards will be given out by the Riot staff at the Merch booth inside the EU LCS studio.
I LOST MY CARD, WHAT NOW?
When you unlock a higher rank we’ll write down your name, so if you lose your card we can give you a new card of the same rank. Keep in mind that you will have to start with zero stamps on the replacement card.
I’M NOT FROM THE AREA, CAN I STILL COLLECT?
Travellers from outside of Germany can receive an extra stamp by showing their recent travel documents - allowing them to level up slightly faster.
THIS SOUNDS TOO HARD - DO PEOPLE EVEN WIN STUFF?
Yes! Actually, here's some fun facts from 2017:
In 2017 there were 130 attendees promoted from Silver to Gold, but only 8 managed to reach Diamond.
26 people got to Gold and were able to pick between the Tibbers and Baron Pillow - most of them chose Tibbers.
The record holder for the most visits attended the show over 60 times, at least 30 of which were free because she was in Diamond.
I AM A MASTER OR CHALLENGER PLAYER, WHY SHOULD I START IN SILVER?
Try gitting gud so you can be on stage instead of in the audience. :^)
