Pick-Em Group Stage
The rules of the betting game are simple. During the Group Stages, you will set the teams in an order you believe they will finish in their group. You will have time until October 1st when your choices will be locked, so choose wisely and make sure that you make up your mind until then. Guessing the teams that qualify for the Knockout Stage grants you two points each. You will also gain three additional points each if you guess the correct order. Guessing third and fourth place warrants you two points each. If you manage to call out everything correctly, you get an additional bonus of two more points and a total of 16 points. Rinse and repeat for each group. Take a look at the full group stage schedule here.
Our Group Stage picks:
When the Knockout Stage comes, you will be able to guess who will win in each match, and ultimately who will claim the 2015 World Championship title. You will get five points for each correct pick during the Quarterfinals. The Semifinals will reward you with 10 points a piece. And guessing the outcome of the Final will grant you 20 points.
Simply participating in the betting game will grant you a summoner icon. Earning at least 34 points during the entire tournament will be rewarded with another one. Finally, if you get a perfect score of 124 points (meaning that you’ve guessed everything correctly), you will be awarded with an exclusive Riven skin.
Have fun and see how you fare compared to your friends, as well as League of Legends enthusiasts from all over the world. Win some prizes, make some good predictions, and may the odds be ever in your favor. Good luck.
