For every World Championship, Riot Games hosts the Pick’em annual challenge in which players can lock in their predictions for the tournament for chances to win prizes such as blue essence, summoner icons, Hextech chests, and more. Last year, only one fan correctly predicted the entirety of the 2019 World Championship and won the grand prize of all five Ultimate skins.
If any of the 12 participants with perfect scores get the last match correct, they’ll win an Alienware Battlestation, the same PC used by pros to play their matches on-stage during this year’s Worlds. Those who participated but didn’t get a perfect score may still have earned other prizes.
