League of Legends Season 2 World Championships set for October 13 in Los Angeles

League of Legends developer Riot Games will hold the World Championships for the game's second season of eSports competition in Los Angeles on October 13th, the culmination of a months-long global tournament.

The world's top 12 teams, as determined by regional finals in Shanghai, Cologne, Seattle, Seoul, Taipei, and Singapore held over the past few months, will descend upon Los Angeles for semifinal competition at LA Live from October 4th to 7th. Only two teams will emerge from the semifinals to compete in the World Championship itself, which will take place at the 10,000-seat Galen Center at the University of Southern California on Saturday, October 13th.

Riot Games provided a $5 million prize pool for the entirety of season 2; the semifinalists will battle over $3 million of that larger pool, with $1 million going to the eventual champion. The winner will also receive a salaried position on the League of Legends team for season 3 next year.
