Riot at PAX West

By ADillonMostDaddy

PAX West 2018 kicks off in less than one week, and we’re headed back to show our support for one of the best communities in games.

Our headline event this year is Playoffs in the Park, a two-day viewing party for NA LCS Semifinals but also much, much more! Expect a ton of stuff to do, including Cosplay Meetups & Showcases, Meet & Greets, and Team Liquid Giveaways. You’ll also get to watch some amazing streamers do their thing live from our Alienware Streaming Truck, including:

Event details:

  • Saturday & Sunday (9/1-9/2): 10 AM - 8 PM

  • Westlake Park (4th Ave & Pike/Pine St)  

  • Semifinals begin: Saturday (9/1) @ 2 PM/ Sunday (9/2) @ 12 PM

  • No PAX badge required!

At PAX itself, writers and editors from Riot’s narrative team are hosting a panel to discuss their approach to story craft and lore building within Runeterra. Join us for Stories Beyond Summoner’s Rift: Narrative at Riot Games at 2 PM on Sunday (9/2) in the Main Theater.

We’re also bringing back our always-popular Cosplay Repair + Creator Pit Stop to support the incredible PAX cosplay & creator community. Throughout the event, any and all cosplayers & crew are welcome to drop by Room 614 for rest or repairs.

Right next door in Room 613 we’re hosting a variety of sessions to support women and non-binary folks who are interested in getting into games professionally. Stop by to learn from and get to know some of the badass women of Riot! Tentative schedule below, but all subject to change—stop by the room Friday-Monday for a daily schedule.
