Today we are excited to announce that Watch Rewards will be introduced for multiple leagues around the world at the start of 2019’s first split. Watch Rewards were initially launched for the 2018 World Championship and since then we’ve been working hard to expand the program for regular season matches.
With Watch Rewards you’ll be able to earn Icons, Emotes, XP and Blue Essence during the 2019 regular season by viewing live games or VoDs on watch.lolesports.com. For Spring Split 2019, fans from around the world will be able to complete missions by viewing matches from the following leagues:
How does it work?
Spring Split 2019 Watch Missions will appear starting January 11th and run through April 23rd. To start, players will need to log in at watch.lolesports.com/rewards and view games on the site using embedded streams from Twitch and Youtube.
After logging in, you’ll be able to see your available missions and earn progress toward them for each game you watch. There are several missions that reward you for watching official League matches; in order to receive credit you’ll need to watch 10 or more minutes of a live game or VoD on watch.lolesports.com. You can keep track of your progress and upcoming missions in real time on our mobile friendly Rewards Hub. At this time we will not be able to grant rewards for watching rebroadcasts. Fans watching from regions covered by GDPR will need to opt-in to earning rewards after logging in so we can keep track of who is watching.
Access to Watch Missions will be rolled out in waves on a region by region basis:
- Brazil on Jan 11th
- Turkey on January 13th
- Latin America, Europe, North America, Oceania, and Japan on January 17th.
What’s coming next?
This year you’ll continue to see tremendous focus on growing the watch.lolesports.com experience with new features made specifically for League of Legends esports. At the end of 2018 we launched Global Schedules, Global VODs, Global Live Stats and Watch Rewards. As always, we’re looking for ways to level up, so please don’t hesitate to leave your feedback and ideas on Reddit, social media and the official forums.
