As an avid player of League of Legends, I want to ask:

What inspired you guys to create League of Legends? and what goal(s) did you have when you were developing the game?

Well, we are hardcore gamers and wanted to make games for gamers. So, 6 years later... That's what we've done.

At the time we started, there weren't MOBAs that weren't mods, and we saw a wide open field to innovate in. A lot of established gamer genres were already pretty explored. We felt MOBA was not explored much yet, and our early team became very excited by the possibilities. So, we set forth to try a bunch of different things, and evolve the genre forward. During this time, the industry was changing, and we've had to explore a lot of other challenges, ranging from what it means to operate a game continuously as a service to our players, to understanding how to explain why we nerfed Ezreal But it's been a really rewarding experience for us.

Today, we still have the same mission. Provide great, new experiences for gamers that get better every day. It's a lot easier to keep motivated these days because we have a community to share what we are doing with.

Prove that you're a gamer.


Edit: Mad boys downvoting because I doubted the all mighty, undisputed "Troll King"?

In that case I'm severely dissapointed in what happened to the meaning of that word.
