Hong Kong’s major League of Legends tournament, “Return of the Legends” is right around the corner. Last year’s edition of the tournament featured four teams. Team Europe, Team NA, Team Taiwan/HK, and Team Mainland China faced off against each other for a grand prize of $300,000 HKD (roughly $38,000 USD)
