Creating a Riot

EOB Esports Academy & Riot Games

EOB Esports Academy and Riot Games are ‘Creating A Riot’! This is a new experience for esports fans to learn the esports business and create their own esports team, leading to a final event.

About the experience

Get ready for battle! As a team, players of League of Legends (LoL) must identify their roles, schedule practice sessions and in a 4-week period, become ready to face any opponent.

Players will leave the experience understanding and developing the skills needed to manage a successful team, understand the challenges and the roles of a LoL esports player, and most importantly, understand how to work as a team!

Esports Masterclasses

Learn from the pros themselves! There will be masterclasses and workshops from esports players and professionals!

Planning an esports event

As part of the course, people will work with their teams to plan an esports event that will be hosted in an esports venue. This event will then be held on the final day of the course, and family and friends will also be invited.

No Experience needed!

That’s right! No experience will be needed to take on this exciting course! But, if you have the experience, you’ll be in the best position to share your knowledge with teammates and be the best prepared for all opponents. Challenge yourself and learn something new or hone your skills – that’s how we grow!
