ZOTAC CUP Fight for Charity League of Legends Tournament was held in conjunction with COMPUTEX 2019 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall 1, a month after the April online qualifiers throughout Asia, Europe, and America.

Nine best players from the April online qualifiers are then set to compete against the Taiwan influencers team, consisting of MMD, Eggroll, 7Z, Weiwei, Toyz, and Gear in the Semi-Finals on May 28 and 29. The winning team with DEX, Kammr, Cipher, Lukalux, and MMD then proceed to the Grand Final, where international influencers Voyboy, Kaypea, CooLifeGame, Guan Zong and Hao Kai awaits.
Within these two days of intense matches, the participants managed to raise a good sum of funds which is then distributed to the charity organizations. The following list shows how the prize money is distributed to charity organizations by each respective participants:
