Riot Games is heading down under, with the launch of an Oceanic Beta server for players in the localised region. Those taking up the offer of moving early will be accommodated with "English-language support, local servers and a dedicated Oceania website."
Starting today, you can join the Oceanic beta by transferring from NA, LATAM, Russia, Turkey, EUNE and EUW. This transfer is free for a limited time. Early transfers earn exclusive rewards including Ziggs and Pool Party Ziggs and enjoy a 100% IP and XP boost for all players until after the beta is over!
Oceanic servers for the popular MOBA title have been underway for a few months now, with a number of forum posts confirming the existence of an Oceanic server in the works before it was officially revealed.
For those wanting a much lower ping then their American brethern, you can claim your summoner name and transfer to the Oceanic server by opening up the League of Legends client and selecting the in-game store. Once in there you'll find the "Other" tab which will provide further instructions. For a full rundown you can check out the Oceanic launch FAQ
Alongside the Oceanic server announcement, Riot has also revealed the world's first official Oceanic tournament to help celebrate the local news. Those wanting to jump in and try their hand at becoming a pro can do so by checking out the official website.
