Mercedes takes inspiration from the NBA to make rings for LoL world champions

What is the relationship between the automobile and League of Legends? None you tell me. Or almost. Indeed, since 2020, Mercedes has been a sponsor of Riot Games, the game’s publisher. And for those of you who don’t know, League of Legends is much more than just a multiplayer game. Far from it even. There are professional teams and even a world championship! The next edition will take place on November 6 in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik.

At the end of the competition, the team that will win the title of world champion will lift the Summoner’s Cup. Each member will also receive a white gold and sapphire ring (in particular) inspired by the design of the models in the EQ electric range. To this, we must add nods to the world of the game as the emblem of the worlds.

And the result seems to fit perfectly with League of Legends global manager Naz Aletaha:

Championship rings are a sporting tradition, synonymous with the highest achievements and unmatched excellence. Since our partnership began in 2020, Mercedes has helped raise and celebrate the best at LoL, and we are delighted to bring together our shared love for design and innovation to leave a resounding mark on the crowning glory of LoL’s success. our sport

to summarize

The champion’s ring is a tradition in the NBA. After each title, the players of the winning franchise receive a ring, symbol of its more or less active participation. In 2018, the French football team did the same after its world title in Russia. With the NBA as inspiration. It is now eSports that is getting started with the game League of Legends.
