Last week, Riot Games hosted one of the biggest events of the League of Legends eSports calendar: the Mid-Season Invitational. During the year, professional League teams play games in their own regional brackets but the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) allows teams to face off against one another in between the spring and summer splits (competitive seasons). Outside of the annual World Championship, this is the only chance teams will get to play competitive League of Legends matches against teams from other regions.
MSI 2015 involved six of the biggest teams in the League of Legends world: Edward Gaming (China), SKT1 (Korea), Fnatic (Europe), ahq (Taiwan), Team SoloMid (North America) and Beşiktaş (Wildcard Team from Turkey). Edward Gaming was crowned the victor, winning 3 vs 2 (best of five) against SKT1. At one point, 87% of MSI viewers actually predicted that Edward Gaming would lose but against all odds, they won.
Riot is now commemorating the events of MSI 2015 by releasing two MSI Winners’ Bundles.
League of Legends MSI Winners’ Bundles
The first bundle is called MSI 2015 Winners and it offers Edward Gaming’s winning side and their champion skins for 50% off the usual price. The bundle costs 2099 RP or 3545 RP if you need the champions. It includes the following:
- Goalkeeper Maokai
- Safecracker Evelynn
- Ghost Bride Morgana
- Warden Sivir
- Infernal Alistar
The second MSI Winners’ Bundle covers the Casters vs Pros. MSI Showmatch which pit Riot casters (official commentators) up against League of Legends pros (including those who had already been knocked out at this year’s MSI). The pros played as champions from Noxius, the casters as champions from Demacia and as predicted, it was the pro Noxians who won.
The 2015 MSI Faction Battle bundle costs 2587 RP or 4446 RP if you need the champions, which is 50% off the usual price. The bundle includes the following:
- Blackthorn Morgana
- Warmonger Sion
- Crimson Elite Talon
- Wicked LeBlanc
- Tyrant Swain
Additionally, Noxian champions are 20% off in the store. However, both the bundles and the Noxian discount will end on May 15th, so act fast before they disappear.
