Trip to Riot HQ with Bilgewater Brew and authentic PC bangs

1

Although we've been to LCS Studio for many, many times, we actually never got a chance to visit the Riot HQ. So, for our latest trip to Los Angeles, not only we've meet team owners and players, but we finally got a chance to visit the Riot HQ for the first time. While there were many hoops to go through, we were very thrilled when we finally received the confirmation email.

▲YES!


Alright! That's another one off my bucket list. Now I just have to take photos and...

▲ wat

 


 

▲We didn't expect the traffic to be this...aggressive.



▲ I'm pretty sure that's where we are supposed to go

 

▲ We made it!

 

▲rito pls

 

▲Let's head in, shall we?

 

▲Super Ani's Junggi Kim drew this mural for Riot Games.

 

▲Reception hall

 

▲Various artworks and videos are displayed on screen.

 

▲and that includes drawings of Worlds winning teams too.

 

▲ :(

 

▲ Man, they really take me back...

 

▲They had this comic book of Rioters who did something great for the company.

 

▲ Reporter Lasso really wanted that book.

 

▲ These Braum doesn't look very friendly

 

▲ Industrial Sona, anyone?

 

▲ After catching up with the Rioter who gave us the tour, we finally got past the reception.

 

▲ Hello again!

 

▲ They actually framed the RP 'Arts' here.

 

▲ much wow very detail

 

▲ That Blitzcrank is the favorite of the Rioter who showed us around.

 

▲ And now we head into the areas where photos are not allowed.

 

▲ "There were rooms full of people wearing Teemo hats..."

 

▲ This is how the photo of Bilgewater Brew would have looked like.

 

▲ This is how the photo of a cup of coffee from Bilgewater Brew would have looked like.

 

▲ And this is how the photo of the lounge next to Bilgewater Brew would have looked like.

 

▲ If you ever visit Korea and want to go to a PC Bang, just look for window decors like that on the street.

 

▲ Riot's attention to detail is shown even in their rendition of Korean PC Bangs.

 

▲ In fact, the computers are probably better than most actual PC Bangs.

 

▲ There are rooms for some serious inhouse competitions...

 

▲ ...with two divided sides.
▲Hall of fame

 

 

 

▲ Surprisingly enough, LoL wasn't the only game installed on the computers.

 

▲ Actual PC Bangs have a clerk who even boils the cup noodles for you.

 

▲ At least their choice of noodles was on point.

 

▲ This is how the photo of NOMS would have looked like...

 

▲ rito pls...

 

▲ Well, that was much shorter than we expected.
We hope that they'd open up a bit more next time.

 

▲ NEXT TIME.
