For the last few months, we’ve been playing with the idea of making more editorial League content. Basically, we wrote a bunch of stories and published them with no clear understanding of whether you’d A. read them or B. like them (or C. care).
If you’re not up to speed, here’s a quick glance at some of the pieces we’ve run so far:
With the test cases out of the way (thanks for reading!), we’re ready to move to the next phase: Nexus. This is the new home for stories about the whats, whys, and hows of League of Legends, straight from the people who spend their days (and nights) keeping it running.
What to expect
We’ll be publishing new stuff every week, including dev blogs from League’s leaders alongside longform stories exploring the ins and outs of a wide range of League topics. We’ll also be making an effort to draw attention to the most interesting stories coming out of League, whether it be something from the tech blog or the Riot Games homepage. Our first post, live right now, is an in-depth look at “casual” vs “deep” game design, penned by League’s game design director.
Future posts should fall in the same general area — individuals and teams just talking about their work and thought processes.
Beta and beyond
What you’re seeing right now is the beta version of Nexus. We’re starting small and hoping to scale up as we go, keeping the site fresh with tons of cool stories to explore (and not just via text). In the meantime, thanks for hanging out. And let us know if there are any stories you’d love for us to tell.
