Riot revealed more information on Thursday about how to qualify upcoming Legends of Runeterra World Championship 2022. The second Legends of Runeterra World Championship will take place later this year with the best players in the game.
The World Championship will be an online-only event, open to players in countries where the game has been officially released. The inaugural LoR World Championship took place last year with 16 participants competing for a $200,000 prize pool. With the expansion of the game since 2021, players can expect a more competitive and better tournament.
How to get a Legends of Runeterra World Championship invite
All players can be eligible for LoR Worlds invite through the A Curious Journey Ranked season, as well as three other seasons that will occur between May and October.

Throughout the different seasons, players can qualify through ranked points, seasonal tournament performance and placement. Players can earn invites to the World Championship with a top four finish in the seasonal tournament.
