Can you believe that League of Legends from developer Riot Games is turning 10 years old this week? The game is turning 10 years old on 27 October 2019 and Riot Games have announced League of Legends celebrations to mark this occasion for the ever-popular MOBA, including a special episode of Riot Pls.
There will be a tonne of things happening, including Riot offices around the world planning meet-and-greets with fans. For South Africans, however, there isn’t a Riot Games office in the country, but you can still join in the League of Legends celebrations in other ways, including “in-game celebrations” as well as streams to watch.
Riot Games announced that:
