Ocean Week is coming!

By CptStupendous

The sun is shining and the waves are up, which means the Australia Day and Waitangi Day long weekends are not far off! To celebrate we’re issuing a challenge of aquatic proportions. If you can rally together as a community and contribute enough points during Ocean Week you will unlock rewards for everyone that participates.

You can contribute points by winning a game with an Ocean Week champion during the challenge phase. Ocean Week will kick off on Friday January 23 and will run until 23:59 AEDT on Friday January 30. Sales and rewards that are unlocked will last through February 8.

Challenge Goals:

275,000 points – Artificial Reef

Contribute a tidal wave of points and we’ll create a champion-themed artificial reef that will become a home for sea creatures. If you contribute at least three points before this goal is reached your Summoner Name will be recorded on the statue that gets sunk to the bottom of the ocean. Unlocking this goal will trigger a vote to decide if the statue should be Fizz, Nami or Nautilus!

175,000 points – Upgraded Mystery Gifts

Unlock a 2x chance of a legendary skin when purchasing a mystery gift! Applies to Mystery Skin Gifts for a Friend through February 8.

130,000 points – Legacy Splash

Unlock four aquatic skins from the Legacy Vault. Scuba Gragas, Sailor Gangplank, Frozen Shen and Angler Jax will be put back in the store through February 8.

90,000 points – 4-Win IP Boost

Unlock a 4-Win IP Boost for everyone that contributed at least 1 point before this goal was reached.

30,000 points – 20 Free champions on rotation

Unlock 8 additional free champions for the remainder of the Ocean Week Challenge.

How can you contribute?

  • You contribute 1 point when you win a game of Blind Pick, Team Builder or Twisted Treeline when it’s available with an Ocean Week champion!
  • If you queue as a premade and at least one person on the team is using an Ocean Week champion and you win then everyone on the team gets 1 point.
  • You can contribute a maximum of 1 point per player per win.
  • Ranked solo/duo, ranked teams, ARAM, CO Op versus AI and custom games do not count towards Ocean Week.

Ocean Week Champions

If you’re going to brave the waves then you need champions that can withstand the wrath of the tides. The Titan of the Depths, The Tidal Trickster and the Tidecaller are keen to lead the charge. And they’ve brought friends.

First wave

The first wave of champions has been quick to answer the call of Ocean Week and will be on free-rotation for the challenge phase. This will replace the normal free-week rotation.

  • Fizz
  • Gangplank
  • Graves
  • Lee Sin
  • Leona
  • Nami
  • Nautilus
  • Malphite
  • Renekton
  • Tristana

Second wave

The second wave of champions has been a little slower to sign up for some sun and surf. You can contribute points by winning a game with them; however they won’t be on free week rotation until you give them a little shove by unlocking the first challenge goal.

  • Gragas
  • Kassadin
  • Kog’Maw
  • Rengar
  • Singed
  • Syndra
  • Thresh
  • Ziggs

Send a champion on holidays!

Two additional champions will be joining the first wave and you can choose who gets to chill by the beach. They will then be put on free-rotation for the duration of the challenge phase.

Voting will begin on Tuesday January 20 on the boards.


One champion and skin will go on sale every day throughout Ocean Week for 48 hours. There will be a 30% discount on the skin and champion.
