Riot Games will not be attending Gamescom in 2015
From hosting a DotA tournament in 2009 to hosting the EU LCS Regionals in 2014, Riot Games has established an almost expected presence at the world’s largest gaming exhibition. This year, they have announced that they will not be attending.
Wanting to createÂ a larger, unrestricted impacted in more locations and a deeper presence at the local level, Riot has chosen to replace the event with more specifically tailored options in more places. Their goal is to give communities across Europe more chances to get together at live events, aiming to boost player experience.
From the announcement:
We’re not going to gamescom, then, but overall we believe what we do instead will result in a better experience for players all over Europe. There will be more opportunities throughout the year to attend live events and engage with the community through specifically tailored League of Legends experiences.
