Riot Games is proud to announced that the second competitive season of League of Legends
has started. The prize pool this time around is five million dollars. New features for season 2 include:
· Ranked teams: Summoners can now rally their friends and compete under the same banner, with a shared Elo rating that reflects their performance as a competitive unit – making it easier than ever to make a splash on the competitive scene and try for a piece of the $5 million prize pool.
· Brand new competitive website: A new interactive website (available at http://competitive.leagueoflegends.com/) chronicles the excitement of competitive League of Legends through coverage of the Chellenger Circuit (the professional league), as well as Ranked ladders and a full schedule of prized events (many of which are open to all comers)!
· New summoner spells and masteries: The League of Legends Mastery system has been refined, and Summoner Spells have received some major changes for Season Two.
· Spectator Mode open beta: League of Legends’ Spectator Mode is now available for public testing in custom games.
