Riot Games has released details for the upcoming 2019 League of Legends All-Star event. The annual celebration of pros and personalities is coming to Las Vegas, Dec. 5-7, and will feature an expanded program.
2019 All-Star will once again feature a large number of pro players in attendance, with over 60 expected to join the event. These will be broken down as follows:
- 2 pros from each esports region, as voted by fans
- 6 pro player “All-Star Invitees”, chosen by Riot after the conclusion of the fan vote
- League Partners (streamers, prominent LoL community members, etc.) from around the world, selected from the League Partner Program
- Some of the biggest and best TFT personalities from around the world
You’re reading the last bullet point correct. For the first time ever, All-Star will also feature a Teamfight Tactics event. There are no details given about the tournament yet, be that format or participants, with Riot promising more information “before the start of the event.”
The full event list is as follows:
- All-Star 1v1 Tournament
- TFT Tournament
- 5v5 Summoner’s Rift
- Show Matches
- URF mode (original blind pick, not ARURF)
- Tandem mode
In 2018, Rasmus “Caps” Winther won the 1v1 All-Star tournament, putting a fitting end to what was a very successful year for the young mid-laner. In the duos tournament, Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng and Joedat “Voyboy” Esfahani defeated the LCK star duo of Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and Kang “Cpt Jack” Hyung-woo to win another victory for the west.
