Test those skills.
Test those skills. Red Bull

The pros of League of Legends are currently locked in battle at the ongoing Mid-Season Invitational 2021. Exciting as that may be, there’s another good news for fans and amateur players. The League of Legends 1v1 experience has returned to North America. Dubbed as the Red Bull Solo Q, the tournament is made possible through a partnership between the League Championship Series and Red Bull North America.

If you’re not familiar, this tournament allows amateur players to highlight their skill in a 1v1 fight instead of the usual 5v5 battle. The two players fight in the top lane of the Rift and will win when they meet either of these conditions:

  • Be the first player to get two kills under seven minutes
  • Get one kill after seven minutes
  • Destroy the outer turret of the opposing player
  • Be the first to get a 100-minion creep score first.
