Well color me excited. Riot, for better or for worse, is positioned similarly to Blizzard circa 2000.
- Years old franchise that enjoyed massive global success (League debuted 2008).
- Delightful characters and lore that exist in the minds of hundreds of millions (way more than Bliz had due to how more online the world naturally is).
- A still growing audience and the whole world is familiar with their content in some way.
- Created successful offshoots (card game, shooter, mobile, whatever).
