Eles são compostos de veteranos da indústria de classe mundial e compartilham uma paixão por jogos online.

Sobre Riot Games

Brandon Beck (CEO) & Marc Merrill (President)

"We aspire to be the most player-focused game company in the world. We were established in 2006 by a couple of entrepreneurial gamers who believe player-focused game development can result in awesome games. In 2009, we released our debut title, League of Legends, to critical and player acclaim. Over 67 million play every month.

We know players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience. [2]

O Manifesto Riot

A Experiência do Jogador em Primeiro

"We obsess over every aspect of the total experience.

From a newb's first game to a veteran's thousandth, from installation to matchmaking to support to televised esports. It all matters.

We listen to what players say and do. We analyze deeply. Then we act to make their experience better."

Convensão de Desafio

"Impossible’s our favorite kind of possible.

Doing the right thing often requires disregarding the rules and upending the status quo."

Foco em Time e Talento

"We attract, develop, and cultivate.

We foster entrepreneurial teams who prefer action (kicking ass) over process and bureaucracy (taking names).

As a meritocracy, we hold Rioters accountable for exercising judgment and delivering value."

Levar Jogos à Sério

"It’s never just a game.

We play lots of games, especially our own. Every Rioter's first day begins with a play test.

Though we're serious professionals, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We make time for daily play and fun. Memes litter presentations, squirt guns keep the peace at Show & Tell, and PC Bangs are built into new offices."

Continue Faminto, Continue Humilde

"We're humbitious – ambitious but humble.

Ambition cures diseases of corporate complacency. Plus, little plans just have no magic in them.

Humility's a must, too. Rioters welcome feedback and always remember the families, teammates, partners, and (especially) players who make it all possible."

Thunderdome is an internal event where Riot's split up into teams to work on whatever sort of project they can imagine. A hackathon event run at Riot every so often, Rioters are given about 3 days to create a project that they're passionate about. This is everything from new maps/gamemodes to internal tools that we think could help make a Rioter's life easier.

Lots of the stuff seen at Thunderdome never sees the public, but some things are iterated on for actual public release. This is all about working on cool projects for players and for Rioters.

It's intended to help explain a cool part of working at Riot for those that are going through the application process.

One of the many things that came out from this event is the well known ARAM game mode for the Proving Grounds, and later, the Howling Abyss and Butcher's Bridge maps.
