You could be in Europe and still get a closed beta key while you are watching streamers such as Pokimane, summit1g, or TimTheTatman. You qualify, as long as you are watching a stream with drops enabled.s
- Do you need to watch for a certain amount of time to get a drop?
It is stated by Riot Games that the players have their best chance of qualifying for a drop after notching around 2 hours of cumulative stream time. On the other words, if you watch for a 30 minute session at one time, watch for a hour later in the day, and watch another 30 minutes the day after, you still qualify. You do not have to keep the same stream running or even open. Basically, all your watch time counts towards the total.
The good thing is that once you have notched two hours, you are eligible for all future drops. It is possible to watch for a couple of hour one day and wake up the next day with closed beta access. Please keep checking back to your Twitch profile for new notifications, even if you have not watched for a while.
