If you've ever wanted to meet a Rioter, or have ever wanted to meet more than a dozen at once, your best chance short of being hired here is to come watch the WCG Grand Finals (http://www.wcg.com/6th/2010/grandfinal/hostcity.asp) with us on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 at the LA Convention Center (http://www.lacclink.com/event/Eventdetail.aspx?id=23558).

We're going to have the top League of Legends teams from North America, Europe, China and South-East Asia all flying out and competing in the WCG Grand Finals on the main-stage for $10,000 and the title of WCG Champion.

League of Legends matches will start on Thursday 9/30 (group stage), and Friday 10/1 (playoffs), culminating in the Saturday, 10/2 (Grand Final, main stage).

Riot is going to be at the event for the entire WCG, but we'll be there in force on Saturday 10/2 cheering on the teams on the main stage, playing LoL against the crowds at our booth, giving away t-shirts, Riot Singed, and a lot of new swag.

If you want to watch the events, but aren’t able to make the trek to LA, don’t worry – we’ll be providing plenty of coverage online. In fact, you can check out the WCG North American Finals this weekend, which will be streamed on the WCG USA Coverage Site (http://www.wcg.com/6th/2010/overview/general.asp) at 4:30 PM PST this Saturday, September 11th.

Getting There:
The main LA airport is LAX (http://www.lawa.org/welcomelax.aspx), which is 20 minutes drive from the LA Convention center (or 3,000 hours in traffic) (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d%26source=s_d%26saddr=lax%26daddr=1201%2BSouth%2BFigueroa%2BStreet,%2BLos%2BAngeles,%2BCA%2B90015-1399%2B%28Los%2BAngeles%2BConvention%2BCenter%29%26hl=en%26geocode=FezvBQIdVjrx-ClNpPu-ILHCgDEzG4k9ug9THQ%253BFWt0BwIdnFjz-CG1KTTiIMAp9inpOCt_x8fCgDHrPFyBKTmzEQ%26mra=).
You can take a cab for $40-$60, rent a car, or take a long bus ride (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d%26source=s_d%26saddr=lax%26daddr=1201%2BSouth%2BFigueroa%2BStreet,%2BLos%2BAngeles,%2BCA%2B90015-1399%2B%28Los%2BAngeles%2BConvention%2BCenter%29%26hl=en%26geocode=FezvBQIdVjrx-ClNpPu-ILHCgDEzG4k9ug9THQ%253BFWt0BwIdnFjz-CG1KTTiIMAp9inpOCt_x8fCgDHrPFyBKTmzEQ%26mra=) through a not-so-great neighborhood.

We can't wait to meet you there - so book your flights, find your hotel (http://discoverlosangeles.com/stay/hotels-and-resorts/)s, and start planning your October 2nd.
