Although Season Two reaches its spectacular finale, the competition is fiercer than ever. To commemorate each and every one of these action-packed moments, we've decked out Riven in heavy armor, new skill effects, and a return-to-base animation worthy of such a determined contender. Championship Riven still wields her signature giant sword, only now with powerful blue energy worthy of the Exile's vigilance.

Those attending the Championship Final received Championship Riven totally free with the purchase of their ticket. After the epic finale, Championship Riven was available to all players in the store from October 14-22.

Closing the curtain

Announced by Average Gatsby:

It was early morning when the first enthusiastic League of Legends fans began lining up to enter USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles and watch the Grand Final. The moment the doors opened, fans almost completely surrounded the entire perimeter, ready to cheer in the battle between the Taipei Assassins and the Koreans Azubu Frost.

Almost 8.000 eager spectators watched the two title contenders battle each other. Before the $ 1 million prize match began, Phreak and Rivignton hosted a one-hour show including an All-Star game, a trophy presentation, and an orchestra performance. The atmosphere electrified as djWheat gave way to the teams and the Final began.

Wild card team triumph

The final match between Azubu Frost and Taipei Assassins (TPA) was a series of best-of-five games with the winner taking home the title of Champion of Season Two and the grand prize of $ 1 million.

TPA announced their presence with authority when the first game began, but Azubu Frost managed to turn the tables mid-game with the victory of several team fights. MVP Rapidstar got the "snowball" effect after multiple kills, including a quad kill as Karthus. Watching from the front row, Reginald of the Team SoloMid team commented, "TPA has played great ... and I have felt they have relaxed during the match."

After losing the first game of the series, TPA had to climb out of the hole they had dug themselves and fight the favorite team to win the championship. They did not disappoint the large number of fans who had won on their impressive path, and soon the crowd began cheering for the wild card team.

Between fights, TPA manager Erica Tseng jokingly told me, "They play better when they're hungry. That's why I take all of their food before fights." Whatever her secret, it was worth it. TPA was certainly hungry for victory, and managed to beat the Koreans in the second match. With the excitement of winning that second game, TPA managed to win the next two matches, winning the series 3-1.

Against all odds, the Assassins claimed the title of Champions against the Koreans Azubu Frost.

Summoner's cup, motorcycles and everything you can eat

After a tough victory, djWheat introduced the Taipei Assassins as the Season Two Champions. Co-founders Marc Merrill and Brandon Beck addressed the winners with recognition and presented them with the Summoner's Cup. TPA will be the second team to have their name immortalized at the base of the Cup alongside the Season One Champions Fnatic MSI.

With a prize as big as that, the press sought an answer to the classic question: "What would you do with a million dollars?" Stanley and Lilballz both expressed their nervousness at the thought of buying a new motorcycle. For the rest of the team, the only thing for sure was that they wanted to have traditional Thai food for dinner that night. Stanley said, "I want to be like Bebe and eat all the Thai food I can." Most importantly, the team will return to Taiwan as eSports heroes and ambassadors.

Congratulations to our new Champions, Taipei Assassins!
