League of Legends: Players will need to grind more to earn Worlds 2020 rewards

Riot Games has turned what should be the lightest event of the year into the most demanding. In order to earn all rewards for the tie-in Worlds 2020 event, players will have to play around 290 games of League of Legends in 39 days.

League of Legends: Players will need to grind more to earn Worlds 2020 rewards

While Riot Games has been improving in-game events in League of Legends this year, they appear to have made an incomprehensible mistake with Worlds 2020.

The developer had previously promised to implement reduced requirements to obtain the rewards offered during these special events, but during Worlds, players are looking at playing more than seven games a day if they want to earn all the rewards.

Instead of the 54 days that the event lasted during Worlds 2019, we will only have 39 available this time round. This first circumstance is understandable due to the exceptional situation globally, and it is probably related to the delay in the Spirit Blossom and PsyOps events going live.

These are the requirements to achieve 4000 tokens (compared to last year):


Worlds 2019

Worlds 2020


54 days (Sep 26 - Nov 19)

39 days (Oct 1 - Nov 9)

Tokens from pass purchase and missions



Tokens required from games



Required Games (50% Win Rate)

Summoner's Rift / ARAM



Games per day

Summoner's Rift / ARAM

5 / 7.5

7.4 / 12.4

Chances are that fans will want to watch at least their favorite team's games, so the additional burden of having to play more than seven games a day (which is about six hours optimistically) is completely disproportionate this year.
