The beta launch of the League of Legends Oceanic server went live today with Riot Games offering players free transfers and early rewards for a limited time, according to a post on the game's official forums by Oceania manager Mirko Gozzo.
For a limited time, gamers can join the Oceanic beta server by transferring from the NA, LATAM, Russia, Turkey, EUNE and EUW servers for free. Interested players can claim a free Oceanic transfer token through the in-game store and hitting on the Other tab. Those who transfer early will receive rewards such as a 100 percent IP and XP boost "until after the beta is over," as well as Ziggs and Pool Party Ziggs.
At launch, the Oceanic server will cover Australia, New Zealand, Guam, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Fiji and Northern Mariana Islands. The server will provide English-language support, local servers and a dedicated Oceania website. Details and an FAQ can be read in full on the official League of Legends website.
Riot Games is celebrating the launch with an online tournament that will run from July 6 to July 14, with the top four teams heading to PAX Australia to compete for cash prizes. More information about the tournament will be provided soon.
