What Are Worlds 2021 Drops and Watch Rewards?
As mentioned above, Riot usually gives out some free goodies for fans watching any international event. The 2021 World Championship is no different. By logging in and watching the games online, fans will be able to gain in-game cosmetic rewards or just emotes and champion capsules.
So, all you have to do is be a fan of League of Legends esports to gain any of the rewards Riot has to offer.
How to Gain Rewards During the 2021 World Championship?
There are three ways of gaining rewards during the 2021 World Championship. You can either play the pick’ems, gain rewards through stream drops or through watch rewards. The pick’ems will start with the Group Phase, but you can already choose your ‘crystal globe’ pick of who you think will win it all.

How to Gain Stream Drops
To gain these types of rewards, you’ll have to go onto the official lolesports website and log into your Riot account. Just by doing that, you already have a chance to get Hextech Chests, Esports Capsules, or the new Worlds Rewards Capsule!
The Worlds Rewards Capsule is a new concept Riot is introducing this World Championship. If you’re lucky and get one, you could gain these rewards:
- Worlds-exclusive Emotes and Icons for 2021 (excluding team logos)
- Esports Capsule
- Hextech Chest & Key
Drops are enabled for those of you watching the action live on lolesports.com while logged into your account. Drops are random and can happen during any game and at any time, but Riot did give a few examples of when a drop could happen while watching the game:
- Pentakill: Drop is guaranteed to happen
- Stolen objective: A drop might happen, but isn’t guaranteed
- Multi-kill: A drop might happen, but isn’t guaranteed
Rewards might differ from region to region, but Riot does want to keep it as unified as possible. We were also given hints for some big drops. So make sure you tune in 5-minutes before these moments:
- Picks and Bans Game 1 Play-ins, October 5
- Game Start Game 1, October 11
- Game Start Game 1, October 22
