It would be awesome to work at Riot.
But I don't hate myself enough to do QA testing. Good luck with your search.
EDIT: My friends and I have actually considered applying, mostly to see what would happen. Any of us could/would handle anything you throw at us, but I don't think any of us know what we'd do if we were accepted. The company I'm at now (2nd yr intern) is pretty awesome and I would feel bad about ditching that. I also haven't given much though to working in the game industry. That said, it would be awesome to improve this game and I'd love to help it. Just..not as QA. That would be terrible.
Oh, and we're also on the other side of the country.
I would say a couple of things in response.
* QA at Riot Games is different
* The job of a QA Engineer is to create tools that do the testing for you
Good luck to you and your friends. I got my start in Game Dev making XNA games.
