"There are multiple ways that players can win in Red Bull Solo Q which definitely makes for a wide variety of gameplay," says Red Bull gaming athlete KayPea. "Some people try to win with mechanics and outplaying or by getting first turret; I personally live for the duel aspect of the 1v1. I love seeing what players are capable of from a mechanical point of view."
Red Bull Solo Q allows fans to make their mark by bringing LoL players to new heights! In a world where LoL is traditionally played in a 5v5 team setting, Red Bull Solo Q will settle the score and showcase individual skill with a 1v1 gameplay format. Amateurs face-off in the top lane of Summoner’s Rift and can claim victory by being the first player to get two kills under seven minutes, or one kill after seven minutes, destroying the opposing player’s outer turret, or achieving a 100-minion creep score first.
In celebration of the tournament, Red Bull recently released all-new Red Bull Solo Q Limited Edition cans featuring LoL champions Conqueror Alistar and Yasuo. Each can includes a special code on the tab that, beginning August 31, 2020, unlocks access to the upcoming Red Bull Solo Q leaderboard – offering consumers an additional path to enter the competition and a unique Summoner Icon (limit one per person) (additional details to come at a later date).* The new Red Bull Solo Q Limited Edition cans are currently available at retailers nationwide for a limited time and while supplies last.
