The Red Bull Solo Q LoL 1v1 World Finals

The Red Bull Solo Q event is a unique format in the League of Legends circuit. The tournament first started off a while ago. However, over time it has morphed to become a consistent event. It is played in a 1v1 format. Amateur players competed to find the best duellist in each territory. The champions from each region have headed through to the event final.

While the players in this tournament not coming from the top LoL teams, the players in the competition have already competed against some great players for their chance at this time tournament. While this is a different skill set to normal League, it can make for some exciting plays.

The Solo Q LoL 1v1 World Finals took place over the past weekend, with teams first competing in four different groups, where they’re narrowed down to 16 players. From here, the Knockout stage whittled down the competition to just one player.  Matches had to be won in a slightly different way. You need to get first blood, get a 100-minion score, or destroy your opponent’s tower. This is a different way to play LoL, but it has been a fun part of the competitive atmosphere since its launch.

Some fine entertainment was provided for this event, courtesy of the LEC casters and crew. While a 1v1 is a bit unconventional for things like LoL betting, this event was great showcase for up-and-coming talent in the scene. Congratz Viggo.
