How To Get League Of Legends Drops From Esports Streams
Drops or watch rewards for LoL esports streams were first given out by Riot Games in the 2020 Summer Split for the LCS and LEC. Players could get drops in the form of poro cards which represent a unique, sometimes exclusive reward. These cards are triggered by in-game or in-broadcast events and provide at minimum a small amount of Blue Essence. Epic plays and other rare in-game moments like a pentakill may trigger bigger rewards such as Hextech chests and keys, skin shards, summoner icons, and Clash tickets. Players can earn these by watching live matches on the official League of Legends esports page. Make sure you are logged in to watch.lolesports.com with your League of Legends account and have signed up to receive the rewards.
When do drops happen?
When certain situations occur in a game, such as a Baron draw, a pentakill or a series of Silver Scrapes worthy teamfights, a drop is likely to appear. Drop cards appear randomly during LEC broadcasts and can have four different rarity levels, namely Epic, Legendary, Mythic, or Ultimate. Players rewards include as skin shards, chromas, prestige points, icons, Hextech chests and keys, and Clash tickets. Here were some of the rewards given out during The Commish bingo during the 2020 LCS Summer Split.
How do I opt-in for LoL esports watch rewards?
Players may have Watch Rewards already set up or may need to opt into rewards and watch live games on lolesports.com. Log in with your League of Legends account details on watch.lolesports.com and navigate to rewards. Here click on the ‘Start Earning’ button and you’ll be all set.
To check if your watch rewards and missions are set up, navigate to the stream and click the rewards button.
What do I do when I see a drop?
Here is what to do when you see League of Legend drops on esports streams:
Step 1: During the stream look for the drop and click on the small notification which comes up on the right side of the screen.
Step 2: You’ll see instructions on how you can get the reward.
Step 3: After completion, visit the Drops tab at lolesports.com/rewards.
If for some reason you miss the notification, you can head to the Drops tab on the Lol esports rewards webpage and claim it there.
In-game loot is directly delivered to your inventory within 24 hours. Note that LoL Esports drops only work for live games in selected regions or for global events, not VoDs or Rebroadcasts. In the Missions tab of the rewards page, players will be able to see any of the missions they need to complete for certain rewards which are also available in-game. As you complete them, you can keep a track of your progress.
Why am I not getting drops?
If you’re not making progress, or think you should be getting loot drops but are not, walk through this checklist:
- Check that you’re logged in on the LoL Esports webpage.
- Make sure you’re watching a live game on the official LoL Esports streaming page.
