>League of Legends doles out biggest eSports prize pool ever.
League of Legends is one of the most popular online games, if not the most popular. The RTS/Tower/defense/RPG game has garnered much attention. It’s free-to-play model has made it popular with the masses and it has garnered a huge eSports viewer following.
Due to this it was announced today on the LoL
forums that this season’s pot will be worth $5 million
. That’s a lot of skrill
and currently the richest pot in all of eSports
That’s what happens when you’re game is growing at an exponential rate and you do the free-to-play model as well as LoL does. Other games take note, if you do free-to-play, look here for how to do it. LoL and TF2 are the flagships of the model and for good reason.
You can opt in to the ladder in game and compete for a chance to, well, compete for the prizes.
Good luck to all my League of Legends players out there in KBMOD land. Maybe I’ll even get the game soon.
