Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, has revealed all the details of its epic world final which will take place at BMW Welt in Munich, on the 4th-5th December, 2021. The tournament, which began in April, will culminate with the top 20 players battling it out across a two day offline final. Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere, the face of the initiative, will be on site to host the event, bringing fans behind the scenes insights, interviewing players, commentators, and much more. After the excitement of the League of Legends World Championship (Worlds), the Red Bull Solo Q final is an awesome opportunity for League fans to get their esports fix before the new year.
The first stage of the competition saw players compete in National and International qualifiers in order to gain a spot in the Red Bull Solo Q Regional Finals, with players from some regions invited directly. This event saw the National Finals winners go head to head, with only the very best earning their spot at the Red Bull Solo Q World Final.
Alongside bragging rights as one of the best solo League of Legends players in the world, the Red Bull Solo Q World Final winner will also earn themselves an awesome live-viewing experience at an upcoming official Riot Games tournament.
Red Bull Solo Q is well known for adding a new challenge to the League of Legends format; 1v1 duels where the player must draw “First Blood,” take down the opponent’s tower, or reach a 100-minion score to claim victory. Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere, who has been the face of the competition since 2019, will be onsite to deliver an awesome fan experience, with a number of behind the scenes interviews, breaking down gameplay and much more. The offline final will take place at BMW Welt in Munich, with all participating players on site.
Built on giving solo amateur players the opportunity to showcase their abilities on the biggest of stages, Red Bull Solo Q has seen a number of competitors use the tournament as a springboard for greater League of Legends success. Mid laner Erik “ZiViZ” Lövgren cut his teeth during 2018’s Red Bull Player One, the previous iteration of Red Bull 1v1 League of Legends action, winning the entire competition and putting his skills on display to the world. Importantly, during the tournament ZiViZ was also able to represent his home country Sweden, as he explained “It’s always been a childhood dream to represent Sweden, be it through football, table tennis or esports. I loved wearing a jersey with the Swedish flag and my name on it.”
For the first time Red Bull Solo Q will take place in Howling Abyss, the first official ARAM (All Random, All Mid) map in League of Legends. This fun and beloved game mode will bring plenty of excitement to viewers, who can keep their eyes peeled for Poro, and players will also enjoy a stage building designed to look just like Howling Abyss, fully immersing them in the action.
