Riot Games Oceania has released details about League of Legends: League of Origin and the teams attending the event. League of Origin will see the first ever region vs region tournament where selected players who represent their region will battle it out on the rift.
Shout casters and team selectors have also confirmed their team line-ups. Here’s who is representing each region:
“There’s always something to prove in the Australian/New Zealand rivalry, so when it comes to League of Origin you’re certainly going to see the strength of Kiwi patriotism in backing our team,” said Crunch.
“I’d call us the underdogs in this story,” says Rusty. “We had a limited player pool to choose from, names that may not compare in magnitude to some of our opponents. But we’re still Queensland.”
“The past decade has seen a lot of Maroon victories.” says Fish. “This time the Blues will be leading the pack, and we will take NZ and VIC as collateral damage along the way!”
“Mid lane is so stacked in Victoria,” Spawn acknowledges. “It’s kind of insane that the three I rate the highest in the OPL are all from my home state!”
