The SVG Podcast: Inside the League of Legends World Championship Final With Riot Games’ Nick Troop and Carrie Dunn

How Riot Games pulled off a last minute audible that moved Worlds from China to Iceland

Last month saw the return of the biggest live event in the world of esports: the League of Legends World Championship Final.

Hosted in Reykjavik, Iceland, the show was abruptly relocated from China, forcing the team behind the scenes at Riot games to quickly develop a star-studded show on the fly. On this episode of The SVG Podcast, we offer you an inside look at how they pulled it off despite all of the pandemic challenges. SVG’s Chief Editor Jason Dachman speaks with Riot Games Executive Producer for Global League of Legends Esports and Wild Rift Esports Events Nick Troop and Riot Games Director of Esports Creative Carrie Dunn.
