LoL Esports teams up with Overwolf and Playwire for the 2020 Alienware Games.
From July 17 — September 11, participants will have the chance to rise up the ranks of the 2020 Alienware Games leaderboard by scoring points across a multitude of games. The supported games will be League of Legends, Fortnite and CS:GO. Each supported title will offer the top 250 players on the leaderboard a selection of in-game currency each week. Players outside the top 250 will have a chance to win via a raffle.
Professional players and streamers will also be getting in on the action across the titles. They include Misfit’s ProxyFox and Broxah, Stewie2k, and 72hrs from Team Liquid. You’ll also see special streams by Gordon Hayward of the Boston Celtics and Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Actor Jerry Ferrara and Grammy-award nominated record producer and co-owner of Rogue Steve Aoki will be showing their support for the competition online.
On top of the top 250 player prize, the 2020 Alienware Games will also see the top 16 players across the event awarded an Alienware gaming rig. An additional 8 will be awarded via raffle, with raffle entries tied to points gained.
