ASUS partners with Microsoft Stores for weekly League of Legends tournaments

ASUS' Republic of Gamers (ROG) arm has announced a new partnership with Microsoft that will see weekly League of Legends (LoL) tournaments come to Microsoft Stores. Taking place at Microsoft Stores around the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Austraila, the tournaments will be completely open to the public.

ASUS' portion of the partnership means that players will get to dive into LoL on dedicated ROG G752VS gaming laptops. ASUS says players will also be equipped with the requisite ROG accessories, including an ROG Gladius mouse and Whetstone mouse pad. As for the game itself, players will have access to League Unlocked, an experience that includes 100 unlocked skins for the event, as well as an XP and IP boost for players' personal accounts.

Tournaments will officially kick off on August 26 at the Microsoft Store at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles. Tournaments will continue to take place every Saturday thereafter. You can head to Microsoft's store locator to see when and if your local store will be having a tournament and register.
