New Riot Games SEA Servers for League of Legends and TFT Go Live in January

Ever since we announced our plans to release League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics in Southeast Asia and Taiwan after a decade-long partnership with Garena, the response from players has been incredible! With the Southeast Asia (SEA) servers launching on January 6, 2023, we want to make your account migration to Riot both smooth and fun. That’s why we’re hosting a month-long, award-winning server launch party for players in Southeast Asia.

Welcome event starts on January 13th

We can’t think of a better way to welcome you to Riot than with a party full of prizes. Just log in and play throughout January to earn a few different types of tokens that can be exchanged for free permanent skin shards, Legendary Eggs, and even Ultimate skins! The Welcome Event will last for a month, so don’t forget to register to join the celebrations. We want you to get off to a good start, which is why we also make it possible for you…

Unlock tons of champions

In honor of League’s original launch, SEA players can unlock all champions released from 2009 to 2021 for free simply by completing in-game missions! We know you have a lot of catching up to do, so build your list at warp speed with this special Southeast Asia-only offer.

New ranked season

New year means new Riot LoL/TFT servers and a new leaderboard climb! This year we will wait until after the official server change to start the ranked season. While we want it to be as easy as possible to link your Garena League account, it’s even more important to give all players a fair start on the leaderboard. That’s why we’re launching ranked season a few days after January 6th. Check our social channels to keep up to date with the latest leaderboard news!

Lunar New Year event

Official Riot servers means participating in all of our global events, starting with the Lunar New Year event on January 13th! Kick off a new year with fresh skinlines, unique events, and festive cheering without shortage.

Offline events: INCOMING

Providing in-game goodies is one thing, but we want to meet you where you are! Therefore, we aim to set up offices in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia while working with local partners in Taiwan and Vietnam. As always, you can follow our social channels to be among the first to know more.

Brand new esports tournament

As Worlds 22 fades in our rearview mirror, it’s time to celebrate SEA’s future pros with a special tournament! We’re still working out the details, but rest assured that the new SEA ranked season will start with a BANG!

How can I prepare for all of this?!
