Following the success of its first League of Legends tournament, streaming collective and esports organization OTK intends to host its second Rift event.
On Summoners Rift, eight teams of five streamers will compete for a $25,000 prize pool. The one-day tournament will begin on September 16 at 2pm CT on OTK member Emirus channel.

The OTK tournament series will feature both returning competitors and newcomers. Team Buddha, the reigning OTK Rift champions, will aim to defend their title among a slew of new teams in Rift 2. Like the previous Rift tournament, the top teams will meet off in a single-elimination playoff round.

When and where to watch OTK Rift 2
OTK Rift 2 is a single-day tournament that will begin at 2pm CT and finish until the last team remaining and crowned the OTK Rift champions. If spectators want to watch the entire tournament, they may do so via the Emirus channel.
OTK Rift 2 is a $25,000 prize pool sponsored by OTK-created PC company Starforge, which includes a winner-take-all prize pool. While there may be many teams and streamers competing for the title of Rift champions, only one team will walk away the winners.
