Riot Games suspended an executive over his “abhorrent” Facebook post about George Floyd [update: he’s gone]

Mere days after Riot Games publicly declared a commitment to combating racism and injustice, they've needed to launch an investigation into one of their own executives for posting some real iffy garbage about the police killing of George Floyd on Facebook. It's not the best look for a company still trying to recover from revelations of a rotten workplace culture of discrimination and harrassment. The…

This League Of Legends player’s mispress turned into a crab-powered victory

League player "MarviAkaMarv" this week shared a cracking little video of a surprising win that came about after accidentally summoning a giant monster when they meant to do something far more mundane. It…

League Of Legends client speed improvements have hit some snags

Several months into a project to improve the League Of Legends client, Riot Games say they've made measurable improvements but also hit a few snags. After making progress enzoomening client startup times, Riot say it actually backslid a bit.

League Of Legends is trying again with stat-tracking Eternals

For wizards who wish to accumulate numbers boasting of their League Of Legends prowess, Riot Games have returned with a second crack at Eternals, the stat-tracking doodads whose planned launch was aborted last year. Similar to Dota 2's Inscribed Gems and CS's StatTrak guns, Eternals will track and show off numbers like kills and high-skill plays. It's a common idea but when Eternals hit the…

As League Of Legends winds up to start its tenth season on Friday, Riot Games have dropped a new anthem for the MOBA - or an old one, really.

Riot Games have pulled in other studios to make games in the LoL-iverse

The other day I realised how long I'd spent in the Dota-verse. It was during my 50th hour of Dota Underlords, after 100 hours of Artifact and nearly 4000 in Dota 2. There are characters I have spent years with, albeit while treating them more as clusters of abilities than personalities. I've seen that world from half a dozen different angles, over the years, between…
