Hey everyone! I just got back from a very long and exciting day. I already touched base on the beginning of the day so I'll jump right into the second half! Today was more of a casual day after the initial setup and opening ceremonies.
We had several League of Legends fans show up at the booth today to play some games and hang out. The Lima Beans vs. Guinsoo grudge match went down tonight but unfortunately I don't know the result because I wasn't there to see it.
I watched a professional Warcraft 3 match with the USA team --- Counter-Logic Gaming. Ted, a famous player from China was playing against Russian player Happy. It was undead mirror, I expected Ted to win but Happy played almost flawlessly and took the map. After that I did a couple of mini video interviews, first of the SEA team Another Story followed by CLG.
Then came the time to bring all of the WCG LoL competitors over to the Riot office in Culver City. I had the pleasure of driving HotshotGG and Elementz of team CLG in my car, hotshot just fell asleep and Elementz bugged me the whole way (as usual!) The teams got to take a tour around the office to get a feel of the environment as well as take part in discussions with some of the designers: Morello, Zileas and David.
After everyone worked their brains for an hour or so it was dinner time! We took everyone to a Mexican restaurant in Santa Monica called El Locho. It was tasty, so tasty that everyone fell into food coma short after. We drove all the players back safely to their hotels and now I'm back in my humble abode awaiting tomorrow's antics. Stay tuned for more coverage everyone!
Attached is just a couple of random pictures I took. First is me stylin' in my new Riot Games polo and the second is SleepshotGG...err HotshotGG (he's going to kill me) Stay tuned for more photos taken by Nikasaur at the venue!
