Want to get paid to play League of Legends? Try Black Flag today and start making money playing your favourite MOBA.
Evolve Labs has unveiled a new BlackFlag esports service where players can compete in League of Legends, the world’s most popular MOBA (multiplayer online battle area) game, for cash prizes.
The service is part of the grown esports market, which market researcher SuperData Research thinks could hit 1.9 billion dollars by 2018. BlackFlag mixes esports and skill-based gaming, where teams of five will pay a $5 entry free to compete with other teams of similar skills for cash prizes. The company hopes that combining the wildly popular MOBA with cash prizes will create a lot of demand among esports fans and hopefuls who want to make money playing their favourite MOBA League of Legends.
Evolve Labs is using the League of Legends tournament API to enable fair matches and honest outcomes. BlackFlag is currently offering a $5 bonus incentive to all new users signing up for the service. Other incentives can be used to fund matches or redeemed for loot like Riot Points, collectibles and apparel. More than 250,000 League of Legends players who play over 750,000 matches each month are reportedly already competing for cash with Black Flag.
If you are worried that getting paid to win League of Legends matches is too good to be true, rest assured that this is very real. The service may sound like gambling but many states allow betting on skill-based games, which League of Legends most definitely qualifies as.
TL;DR: If you want to get paid to play League of Legends, assemble a 5-man team, head over to BlackFlag.gg, challenge a team of similar ability and collect your loot if you survive the match.
I can think of a lot of bad ways to get paid. To get paid to play League of Legends is not one of them. Try it today. You only stand to lose $5, a bit of pride but you gain the knowledge that you can–if you practice hard enough–get paid to play League of Legends. And that information is priceless if you ask me.
