As Zerglinator just noticed, we just opened a couple of positions for Riot Sydney: http://www.riotgames.com/careers?loc...5D=425&search=

If you or someone you know is passionate about community or esports in Oceania, please apply!

That's all I've got for today, but I did want to make sure you know we're listening, we're working, and we'll have more to share soon(TM).
I wish I would apply but im still under 14 and haven't finished high school yet
I also have no work experience

Shame the only thing I would be capable of doing is voicing for champions, but I'm willing to bet you do all that in America, and have people in mind for the next few champions already ):

I refuse to play ranked games when I know I'm terribly disadvantaged for having a 180+ ping. PLEASE bring out Oceanic servers. There are servers in Turkey and Brazil, why not Oceanic?

Hey guys,

thank you so much for the overwhelming reaction to the Sydney Openings announcement.
I just wanted to share another piece of information.
Today we also opened 2 jobs based out of Sydney in the Technical Operation department.
You can find them here: http://www.riotgames.com/careers?loc...5D=425&search=

I also wanted to clarify couple of things:

I'd love to apply if so.
Not sure exactly about your background but we did open 2 new position today with a technical background. You can find then here: http://www.riotgames.com/careers?loc...5D=425&search=
Stay tuned as we will open more in the next weeks.

We are aware that "not losing content you already purchased / unlocked" is something important for you so rest assure we are working on this.

We will release servers there.

This is not true unfortunately. We are hiring now so it's going to take longer than that to be ready.

Oh man MasterMirkinen thanks for some solid red answers.

At least we Aussies now know for certain that local servers WILL be coming. We don't expect them straight away but we will all be eagerly looking forward to them.
