League of Legends bets big on eSports success

GamaSutra - Riot Games is betting big on eSports -- so big that, as it now launches its third season of competitive play, it now has "a 40 person team, and it's growing," Whalen Rozelle, senior eSports manager for the company, tells Gamasutra.

The company has built studios in Los Angeles and Cologne, Germany, so it can broadcast events from both the U.S. and Europe -- and during filming, brings in production teams above and beyond the 40 staff currently employed by the company. (League of Legends, PC)
