FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


What do I need to do to complete the “Watch and Earn” Mission?

First you’ll need to login on the www.lolesports.com site.

Opt-in for the rewards.

Click “Watch” on the top of the navigation bar and watch at least 15 minutes a live game or VoD. Very important though, if you watched it on other websites (Twitch, Youtube, etc.) you won't get them. This is something we want to be able to do later!


What are the rewards for Watch & Earn?

There are four total "Watch & Earn" missions available. One is available right away, and the rest unlock three days after you finish the previous mission. So, your second mission is available three days after you finish the first, and so on.

There are also two hidden missions! You'll unlock secret icons at 30 and 50 games watched.


How do I check how many games I’ve watched for the hidden missions?

We’re checking the amount of games you have watched, however this is something we can’t provide info, so you’ll need to keep track of the games you watched by yourself.


How do I track my progress for the Esports missions?

Go to the Rewards tab on the lolesports site and you can check it in there.


Oh no, I missed a game! Do rebroadcasts and VoDs also count for the mission?

Only Worlds broadcasts and VODs count toward mission progress. Rebroadcasts don't count!


The Stream starts by default in English, can I change the language?

Yes, at the top right of the screen. Check out this picture:




How many Worlds tokens can I grab without the World’s Pass?

400 tokens.


I made a Chroma but I can’t use it even though it’s in my collection. Why?

You have to own the skin for each Chroma so you can use it. If you own Championship Kha’zix for example you need the skin to use the Golden Chroma. Don’t worry though, the Chroma stays in your collection until you grab the skin.


Are the Borders skin-specific?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer, each border is tied to the skin and it’s only displayed in the Loading Screen and Collection.

Also the Championship Kha’Zix Borders are exclusive to their respective Chroma. So a team border will only show up if you select the team Chroma and at the same time the Championship default border will only work on the default Championship Kha’Zix skin.


Can I keep the border after the event has ended?


Once you unlocked one or more borders, they’re permanent.


Oh noes! I accidentally crafted the wrong Chroma. Can I get my tokens back?

Yes but please be careful when crafting your desired Chroma.

Write a ticket to my Support friends mentioning which Chroma you want to get refunded and we’ll reverse it.


Will Championship Kha’Zix and the 2018 Championship Ward be available through Hextech Crafting?

Considering that both of them are revenue-shared with the Team attending Worlds, they won’t be obtainable through Hextech Crafting until the Worlds event is over on November 20, 2018 at 6:59 AM GMT.



How much time do I have to complete all missions?

From September 27, 2018 at 15:00 GMT to November 12, 2018 at 06:59 AM GMT


Will all missions be unlocked at once?

Nope, they are available throughout the event on a weekly basis.


How many tokens can I earn per match with the Worlds Pass?

Check this table:


Keep in mind that sometimes there might be a small delay in receiving your tokens. Don’t worry though, they’ll end up on your account. :)


Can I earn tokens by playing Co-op vs AI games or Odyssey: Extraction?

Short answer: Nope. Only PvP Games count. For more details check out this post.



Until when can I buy the team skins from the past World Championships?

Until 20th of November 06:59 AM GMT.

Do we support the teams that are participating in the Worlds by buying stuff?

Yep. This year we’re increasing the number of game content that allows you to directly support the team you’re rooting for.

We’re also changing the way the revenue is distributed through the Championship Skin and Championship Ward.

Here you’ll find the exact allocation of the revenue.

If you have any questions or you need any clarification about something, drop a comment and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible. Love you!
GL;HF at Worlds 2018!


The most awesome high-five from your Techie support,
