Hi Gene, welcome to Community Club and thanks for doing this! I don't play League, but I have to say that I'm a big fan of the soundtracks and music videos. They're so well done!

How does Riot Games approach gamification? What leverages or incentives do you think motivate players the most? What about developers? Do you find that it's different between the two groups, or is there an overlap?

What do you think the community world can learn from the gaming world?

Gene Chorba Ask Me Anything

Hey! Honestly the music and videos are what got me into the game.

It's all about fun and player value. Every decision at the company goes down to the decision tree of what provides more value to players.

We try to build as many things as possible that we would use ourselves, and be willing to rapidly change if it turns out it is not fun.

Something I love that Riot does is that every employee is encouraged to go out and talk and engage with the community and talk about their job. So we basically get 3000+ people who are constantly our there talking and playing with players.
