Transfers to the Oceanic server are free for a limited time and can be done by claiming a free OCE transfer token in the "other" tab via the in-game store.
Participants who transfer early earn in-game rewards, including the champion Ziggs and a pool party skin, as well as a boost granting double IP and XP until the conclusion of the beta.
A local online tournament has also been announced, scheduled to run July 6-14. Teams who finish in the top four places will compete for a A$40,000 prize pool at PAX Australia. Additional tournament details are available at the Australian Cyber League website.
Riot Games established a Sydney office in February this year. The Australian branch will have staff in marketing, eSports, and community.
