While the battles rage on between the top teams from around the globe at the 2017 World Championship, let’s take a quick look at how your contributions are impacting the Worlds 2017 prize pool and the global charity fund.
Worlds Prize Pool
As we previously announced, 25% of Championship Ashe and Championship Ward purchases will go toward the prize pool and be split among the teams participating at Worlds 2017 based on their final placement, check out the breakdown below:
1st place: 37.5%
2nd place: 13.5%
3rd/4th place: 7% (14% total)
5th-8th place: 4% (16% total)
9th-12th place: 2.25% (9% total)
13th-16th place: 1.25% (5% total)
17th-20th place: 0.75% (3% total)
21st-24th place: 0.5% (2% total)
Additionally, Riot will match 25% of all Championship Ashe sales during Worlds 2017 to be donated to three global charities. You can vote on which cause you support the most—the higher your Honor level, the more weight your vote carries. The highest-voted charity will get 50% of the total pool, and the remaining amount will be split equally between the other two.
Right now, the total prize pool is $4,072,101 (approx €3,454,284.37) and fans have contributed $1,850,000 (approx €1,569,116.94)! All purchases of Championship Ashe and the Championship Ward will continue to funnel into the prize pool until November 6 at 08:59 AM CEST. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates and continue sending your energy to the team you deem worthy!
Support your Team
You can also support your favorite team directly through a purchase of team icons or emotes. Keep in mind, these in-game items are not factored into the prize pool.
Emote/icon bundle: 30%
