Rioters are gamers. We love games. As we strive to create the best player experiences, it’s important we understand play beyond Summoner’s Rift. This means that we play games – and not just our own. The new Riot Play Fund encourages plentiful play by providing each Rioter an extra $25 a month to spend on games. Whether MOBA or FPS, console or PC, tabletop or mobile, the Play Fund is for us to improve our skills and stay true to our roots. Then we apply the things we learn to the work we do.
The Riot Play Fund is more than a traditional perk and more than a tantalizing add-on to our existing benefits; it’s an important part of our efforts to become the most player-focused game company in the world. To know players and create player-focused games, we need to be players ourselves.
