The event captivated fans and viewers with its unique atmosphere and innovative approach to broadcasting. As a dedicated gamer since the game’s beta back in 2011, I’ve closely followed the growth of League of Legends esports and witnessed its evolution over the years.

In this article, we delve into the reasons for this remarkable shift and explore how League of Legends esports has embraced the shift to deliver an unparalleled viewing experience. League of Legends Esports Evolution: Insights after Valorant.
A change in dynamics
MSI 2023’s graffiti-covered stage, adorned with fancy fonts and bright colors, reflected the spirit of the London backdrop. While these aesthetic improvements played a role in the event’s success, they alone did not fully explain the exceptional experience it offered. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to speak to two influential women who were instrumental in running the show that I began to understand the underlying factors driving this evolution.
Embrace the influence of Valorant
Valorant, Riot Games’ acclaimed first-person shooter, made significant strides in 2022, introducing new in-game features and hosting large-scale esports events. So naturally, League of Legends fans drew comparisons between the two games. A popular thread on the League of Legends subreddit praised Champions, Valorant’s format, and expressed hopes for its inclusion in the World Championship. With fan expectations growing, it became imperative to examine how the success of Valorant impacted League of Legends esports.
Insights from key players
To gain valuable insight into the impact of Valorant on League of Legends esports, ONE Esports had the honor of interviewing Anna Robinson, Associate Creative Director at Possible, and Juliet Reason, Riot Games Global Esports Events Producer. Possible, a creative agency with a rich history of working with Riot Games, has been responsible for producing the grand opening ceremonies of the World Cup since 2016. Anna and Juliet provided fascinating insights into the changes that have taken place and the direction League of Legends esports is taking.
