We’ll be gallivanting around the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on the 21st to the 24th November, to cheer on League of Legends tournaments, play some games with everyone who visits our booth, and probably hit each other repeatedly with foam pickaxes.
Taking place over the 15th-16th of November at the O’Callaghan Alexander Hotel in Dublin, WinterLAN will host the biggest League of Legends tournaments to take place in the country to date, both an open and an invitational. Attendees can pick up a Spectator Day Pass for just €15 or a full Weekend Pass for €20. We’ll be there giving out skins and playing a few community games so come say hi!
With the rest of the UK and Irish qualifiers complete or in progress, now is your last chance to enter the 4 Nations Tournament via the fully online Riot 4 Nations Open Qualifier. Will your team manage to take one of the last two slots?
Let’s hope Baron Nashor enjoys being the centre of attention because, standing at a towering 5 metres tall in the League of Legends gamescom booth, he’s extremely hard to miss. In order to get a better sense of the story behind his construction, we caught up with Greg Keeley, the managing director of prop making specialist APE.ie, and Ali Durrant, a Senior Creative Producer at Riot who helped the project along and liaised with the art team in Santa Monica.
At the gamescom 2014 convention in Cologne, Germany, Riot had the pleasure of celebrating the ever-fizzing creativity of the League of Legends community. Having significantly expanded the dimensions of this year’s booth, we had room to devote one entire side of the community booth to what we called The Cosplay Village, providing a rallying point for the nearly 400 League of Legends cosplayers in attendance over the course of the week
