Every year, the best League of Legends eSports teams from all around the world meet up for the Mid-Season Invitational which is a huge tournament that takes place between the spring and summer splits (the seasons of competitive play). The 2015 MSI begins in less than two weeks and so to celebrate, Riot Games is discounting skins, champions, icons and more.
The month of April is also on its way out and Riot seems to want to commemorate that too, as they’ve also shaved money off several League of Legends bundles (including skins and champions) that should satisfy all players, melee or ranged. Find out all of the details after the break.
League of Legends Sale – Mid-Season Invitational
The MSI Picks and Bans bundle was put together by Riot’s very own shoutcasters based on which champions are most likely to be picked or banned during the MSI. They whittled it down to the following:
- Reaper Hecarim
- Demolisher Nunu
- Soulstealer Vladimir
- Mafia Graves
- Warden Nautilus
The whole bundle runs from 19:00 BST May 5 through 07:59 BST May 11 and will set you back by 2511 RP or 4495 if you don’t already own the champions. That’s 50% off the usual prices of those champs and skins, so mark those dates down on your calendar if you want to take advantage.
Additionally, regional league icons will be 250 RP, rune pages will be 2 for 1, all boosts will be 50% off and summoner name changes will only cost 650 RP which is 50% cheaper than usual. Riot also says that if any MSI player gets a pentakill or a baron steal during the tournament, we will be twice as likely to get an eSports team (Fnatic, TPA, and SKT), championship or legendary skin from a Mystery Gift until 07:59 BST May 16.
League of Legends Sale – End of April
Three bundles are on offer for the end of April sale (ends May 1st at 07:59 am BST). Here’s a breakdown:
- Going Commando Bundle (50% off the usual price) – 1300 RP if you own the champs, 2997 RP if you don’t – includes Commando Jarvan IV, Commando Galio, Commando Garen, Commando Lux and Commando Xin Zhao.
- Short-ranged Marksman Bundle (50% off the usual price) – 2396 RP if you own the champs, 4335 RP if you don’t – includes Hired Gun Graves, Hired Gun Lucian, Snowstorm Sivir, Battlecast Urgot and Mafia Jinx.
- Freakin’ Awesome Tanks Bundle (40% off the usual price) – 2292 RP if you own the champs, 4341 RP if you don’t – includes Special Weapons Zac Nightmare Cho’Gath (Legacy) Poro Rider Sejuani (Legacy) and AstroNautilus.
Obvious complaints are the fact that Jinx is in a short-ranged bundle although her ulti can travel across the entire map and her grenades can travel quite a bit too, there’s also the fact that the Commando skins are rather unpopular.
Riot hosts League of Legends sales all the time though, so if you agree with those complaints or haven’t found something in these sales that you want to buy, keep visiting J Station X for more sale details in future.
