What are League of Legends esports Drops and how to get them

Ahead of the 2020 Summer Split, Riot has introduced LoL esports drops so you can earn special rewards while watching.
What are League of Legends esports Drops and how to get them

Stream "drops" as rewards are nothing particularly new, and we've seen them regularly through all these years on Twitch, as a mean of promotion for games, events, and streamers.

Just recently, Riot's own Twitch drops for Valorant beta access were a hot topic, and now Riot is back with "drops" but this time for League of Legends, and not on Twitch.

"During official matches, fans actively viewing the broadcasts on Watch.Lolesports.com will be rewarded with League of Legends digital goods and other promotions," Riot explains.

In short, this means that you just need to watch League of Legends esports events via Watch.Lolesports.com for a chance to get these rewards.

How League of Legends Esports Drops work?

  • To ensure that you’re eligible to receive drops, make sure that you are logged in to watch.lolesports.com with your League of Legends account and opted in to receive rewards and drops.
  • If a Drop is triggered by an in-game moment, a notification will appear on-screen. To claim the Drop, you can click the on-screen notification or visit the drop page on watch.lolesports.com anytime afterwards.
  • To see what Drops and third party rewards you've earned, head to the Drops tab on your lolesports.com Profile page.
  • At launch, Drops will only be available when viewing live matches. Riot says they hope to expand support for other new features in the near future.

What can you get from League of Legends Esports Drops?

  • Skin shards 
  • Chromas 
  • Prestige points
  • Clash tickets.
  • And more

Drops will begin to occur during the third week of the 2020 Summer Split for the LCS and LEC, and fans from all regions and servers will be eligible to collect rewards.

Riot hasn't said anything yet about LCK or LPL, but it will probably expand Drops to those leagues as well in the near future. For more info, visit the official Watch.LoLesports blog.
