Riot Games brings League of Legends' Rift Rivals Tournament to State Theatre

Event Hospitality and Entertainment have joined forces with Riot Games to bring the international League of Legends esports tournament, Rift Rivals, to Australia for the very first time.

“The EVENT team are passionate about bringing fans together for shared cultural and entertaining experiences,” said Luke Mackey, EVENT General Manager of Entertainment.

"We are delighted to provide the League of Legends community a place to gather and compete on an international stage. This tournament is just the beginning of our esports offering, and we look forward to bringing more gaming events to our cinema and theatre audiences in the future."

The Rift Rivals League of Legends tournament is a premiere event that attracts millions of viewers from the Asia-Pacific region. The best teams across Oceania, Japan and Southeast Asia will compete in this four day event to be held at the State Theatre in Sydney from July 2-5.

Players like Oceania’s Shern “Shernfire” Tai from Dire Wolves, Japan’s Kyohei "Ceros" Yoshida from DetonatioN FocusMe, and SEA’s Nuttapong “G4” Menkasikan from Ascension Gaming will battle for glory, bragging rights and to see who holds the ultimate balance of power in the region.

“Bringing Rift Rivals to this spectacular live venue on home turf would not be possible without EVENT,” said Daniel Ringland, Head of Oceanic Esports at Riot Games. 

“We know how important live tournaments are for our fans; they bring us together to share in the thrill of watching League of Legends played at the very highest level. The fact it’s Oceania’s three best teams competing is just icing on the cake.”

Tournament tickets go on sale Friday 1 June and start at $49, with an extremely limited amount of VIP tickets available which include playing a game on the Rift Rivals stage and backstage meet-and-greets with the pros and on-air talent.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
