Riot Games boasts the biggest purse in eSports history

That's Emumu in the header, otherwise known as the emo version of League of Legends champion Amumu. Come October 13, 2012, we'll have one thing in common: we both won't be competing in the League of Legends Season 2 championship, with a total of $3 million in prizes, and thus, we'll be sad pandas.

Come October, winners from North America, Europe, China, Korea and non-Korean Asian areas are all going to meet in LA for the World Championship. Riot also drops a few statistics, namely the fact that they average 1-2 million viewers during their livestreams of major League events, which is obviously impressive.

It's been a few months since I've played League of Legends, and I'm sure that if I were to jump back in, I'd have to entirely re-learn the new meta. Hopefully Gangplank and jungle Lee Sin are still viable: maybe I can find a 5s team and make a run for the championship!

Season Two Championship: October 13, Los Angeles! [League of Legends]
