In the past, Canada has done well in the international phase of the Red Bull Solo Q tournament. In 2019, Tristan “Jumong” Cote-Lalumiere became the Red Bull Player One League of Legends champion.

Jumong has been a challenger ADC since season 4, according to an interview. In seasons 6, 7 and 8, he reached rank 1 in the North American region. He then started going pro in season 7 before getting picked up by Flyquest. Nearing the end of season 8, he also joined the Echo Fox Academy.

In 2020, Jumong further detailed his experience in another interview with Red Bull. He advised that players should practice what they’re good at and watch VoDs for a general idea of the Red Bull Solo Q action. 

Through this year’s Red Bull Solo Q event, League of Legends hopefuls will continue having a shot at showing off their skills on the international stage. Competitors will also get the chance to prove themselves and get noticed by the pro scene. 

In addition to signing up, interested players are encouraged to join the Red Bull Canada Discord server.
