The lights are on
On October 4, Riot Games will be holding the season three finals for League of Legends at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Last week, tickets went on sale and were gone in approximately one hour. We'd like to tell you that you have another chance, but that has passed, and it went quickly.The developer behind the enormous free-to-play MOBA told Game Informer that the second wave of tickets for the huge event went on sale at 12 pm Pacific today and were gone within five minutes. Over 11,000 seats have been sold, and if the crowds at PAX for the Challenger match between Complexity and TBD are any indication, it's going to be a lot of fun.We had the opportunity to watch part of the match live, and while Complexity pushed through to win, TBD did a solid job of fending off the final advance for quite a while. The excitement in the packed theatre at the Washington State Convention Center was intense, but with an international competitor pool and crowd, the LCS finals are sure to be a blast to watch live and at home.
You can see more League of Legends at PAX via Twitch.

Not really too surprising considering its crowded community.
I hope they put the giant screen right in the view of the playing team so they can screen watch again. Oh and at least 6-7 DC's and restarts due to Riot's reliable servers. Season 2's finales were fun to watch.
Good Luck to all that are competing!

Personally I am so happy that E-Sports are making headlines and becoming more popular here in America. I don't care if you take a personal interest in WATCHING the events, but if you consider yourself a gamer or a fan of video games, you should support the idea of E-Sports as it does nothing but lend an increased legitimacy and revenue stream to the medium.
Personally, I think E-Sports are the future of sports and I don't think it's too hard to see. Many of my friends do not watch traditional sports often but will take an interest in the LCS (League of Legends) or the GSL (Starcraft II.)
Anyway I'm posting this because I saw someone saying E-Sports are actually "BAD" for gaming, as well as people just saying they don't get it- I think that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Long live E-Sports. If you're a fan of this hobby you should at least support the IDEA that video games can be a serious form of high level competition and entertainment.
In my opinion. Long live E-Sports!
I never really particularly cared for MOBA's... until I played one, that is. LoL is actually a ton of fun, I always considered myself above playing LoL for years because I thought it was kinda lame, but it's actually a fantastic game. eSports are here to stay in my opinion, and LoL is a great one. It can be hard to see the entertainment value when you've never played before though. The skill and knowledge of the different champions/items, and team composition is pretty interesting at the professional level. It's also appealing because as a 5 man team, there is the possibility of being promoted through the tiers, into the challenger tier, and then into the pros. So if you haven't checked it out before, I'd definitely recommend it. It's a well put together free to play game, so you don't have much to lose.
