WMU Esports attends LCS Finals

The League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) Finals happened on August 24 and 25. Riot Games and the Detroit Pistons staff were kind enough to send members of the WMU Esports team and staff tickets to come to the event. Many members of the staff are avid fans of League of Legends (LoL) and it was a great opportunity to see the biggest LoL event in North America.

The LCS Finals was the perfect example of esports production. The event was well produced, and a valuable learning opportunity for the esports production team at WMU. We want to thank Riot and the Detroit Pistons staff for inviting us to this amazing event.
