RIOT PO­LICE

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE -

League Of Leg­ends is one of the world’s largest in­ter­na­tional es­ports, and it stands as the ex­cep­tion to the rule re­gard­ing the ad-hoc growth of the form. The game’s devel­oper, Riot, re­tains an enor­mous amount of con­trol over the gov­er­nance of the pro­fes­sional scene. Although it makes use of white­la­bel tour­na­ment showrun­ners from time to time, pro­fes­sional League Of Leg­ends tends to hap­pen at Riot’s dis­cre­tion or not at all. League’s rel­a­tive sta­bil­ity has at­tracted higher-pro­file spon­sor­ship than other es­ports, sug­gest­ing that there’s merit to the idea that a lack of gov­er­nance is the main thing stand­ing in the way of the in­dus­try’s growth.
