Riot Games Will Build a New League of Legends Stadium

Stadium

Riot Games has seen the rise of eSports since the very beginning, and they love supporting the competitive scene. Unlike Nintendo who has left the competitive scene of their games to struggle, Riot Games wants to keep on expanding it. With a brand new stadium dedicated to one of the South Korean teams.

This is done as one of the many ways League of Legends is going to be presented in Korea. As part of this move, Riot will take over the production of the LCK (League Champions Korea). That brings it in line with the EU and North American LCS leagues.

With this, Riot will take more control out of the hands of third-party companies in Korea. It’s pretty much the same thing Valve has been doing for the DOTA competitive scene.

Riot Games’ new studio will be the origin of the world’s most competitive league. The new complex is set to open in September 2018 in time for the 2019 season under the name “LoL Park”. This will be the set for the new LCK championships in Korea in the following years.

The building for the new stadium is leased until 2029, and will seat 400-450 fans for LCK broadcasts. The complex will be located inside the Gran Seoul building on the third floor.

LoL Park will also have a PC bang, a coffee shop, and of course backstage and practice areas for players across nearly 57,000 square feet.

This decision is following on the success of the global championship of League of Legends. The name of the event was Worlds 2017 and saw more than 40,000 followers.

OGN and SPOTV were the primary broadcasters of the league, and Riot Games will work with those organizations for the new regime. There’s nothing said about the future of the game’s commentators, though, so there might be a shift in that regard.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
