Game Accounts

All participants MUST set their Legends of Runeterra ID as their ESL game account for the series. Example: LarchTreeLeppy#NA1

On any Cup page for the series, click the yellow "Register" button and put your Legends of Runeterra ID from in-game in the text box 1-1.

If you have problems or notice any issues, please contact the admins via support ticket or Discord from the Cup’s support tab IMMEDIATELY.

Match Protest

In the event that an opponent does not appear after 10 minutes, a protest ticket can be submitted to request a default victory. This must be accompanied by attaching the necessary evidence to verify the situation. When you upload the screenshot, the result should be left blank.

Administrators always make the final decision on a match, so they can intervene in a match and determine whether or not it should be played.


The primary method of communication and support for the Legends of Runeterra Open cup is via support or protest tickets. You may also join ESL Mobile Open Discord https://discordapp.com/invite/eslmobileopen.

All players are advised to join this server to be up to speed on rule changes and to communicate with admins and participants. Items may be communicated exclusively in this discord server. Not being aware of these items due to not being in the server will not be seen as a reasonable excuse.
