A city of contrasts and extremes, Moscow is already home to more than 11 million people and a growing team of Rioters. During summer’s warm months and throughout winter’s deep freeze, we explore a dynamic cityscape where towering skyscrapers cozy up to humble two-story buildings and historic palaces in architectural frottage around us.
With new digs downtown, we’re barely a fist bump away from many of the city’s most iconic landmarks. The Kremlin, St. Basil’s cathedral and the Tretyakov art gallery satisfy our cultural cravings, while the vibrant and gastronomically diverse pubs and coffeehouses in the neighborhood serve cravings of a different sort.
Like all Rioters, we play daily. Some of us go for a quick and dirty ARAM; some prefer the moody vibe of the Twisted Treeline. The steeliest amongst us get our competitive fix in with ranked games on Summoner’s Rift in the morning. The game doesn’t end when we slap that “GG” button or log out. We cheer for our favorite LCS teams and closely follow their progress. Thursday through Sunday we’re tuned to the LCS. With more than a few Muscovite Rioters in the office, we all hear it when Gambit Gaming polishes off a big win.
With teams in Web, Publishing, Localization, Player Support, Community and Esports, we’re primed and prepped to build the League of Legends player experience across Russia and the CIS countries. As Alexander Pushkin (an honorary Rioter, what with his focus on his audience, rejection of traditional constraints and, oh yes, non-stop badass dueling) once said, “Moscow…how many strains are fusing in that one sound.” The Riot team in Russia’s created a space where diverse, player-focused pros will thrive – in the heart of a city of contrasts.
