Legacy Esports will be eyeing off some of the region’s best League of Legends talent, with the OPL Split 1 2020 champions taking on an All-Star squad in the name of charity.
Legacy’s title defense will be mounted early for a good cause. As part of the Mid-Season Streamathon — the replacement for MSI 2020 — the reigning champions will take on Oceania’s finest in a showmatch like no other.
The community will vote on 10 players to make up the OPL All-Star roster, who will then duke it out for the rights to play against Legacy.
The best player in each role from the best-of-three exhibition match on May 23 will face off against the Split 1 champions on May 30 at 12pm AEST.
Voting for the initial All-Star showmatch will be open until May 21. A maximum of two players from each OPL team will be allowed onto the All-Star roster that takes on Legacy.
The Mid-Season Streamathon is aiming to raise funds for the Riot Games Social Impact Fund, to be distributed to organizations that are “addressing COVID relief efforts.”
The 48 hour live-stream will feature exhibition matches from North America, Europe, SEA, and Japan, as well as talent showdowns across Turkey, Brazil, Latin America, and the CIS.
The Mid-Season Cup, held between the top four LCK and LPL teams from Korea and China, will also take place during the Streamathon.
The All-Star exhibition match will take place on May 23 at 7pm AEST, and will be streamed live on the Legacy Esports Twitch channel.
The showmatch between Legacy and the All-Stars will go live on May 30 at 12pm AEST on the official Riot Games channel.
