Riot Games has announced an exciting addition to the League of Legends esports world: the “Hall of Legends.” This new initiative, set to launch later this year, aims to honor the most iconic players and figures in the history of professional League of Legends.
Over a Decade of League Excellence
With more than ten years and fourteen seasons of competitive play, League of Legends esports has established a rich history. The introduction of the “Hall of Legends” is a long-awaited move to celebrate the legacy of its most influential personalities.
Inaugural Class: A Tribute to Legends
Riot plans to induct an inaugural class into the Hall, recognizing players who have left an indelible mark on the game. An independent panel comprising esports veterans and experts from every region is tasked with the selection process.
Although the specific inductees remain unannounced, expectations are high for the inclusion of some of the most celebrated players in League’s history.
Beyond Players: Celebrating All Facets of the Scene
The “Hall of Legends” is not just about players. It’s anticipated that other significant contributors, including casters, coaches, and executives, will also be recognized for their dedication and impact on the League esports ecosystem.
Celebrations In-Game and In Real Life (IRL)
Inductees into the Hall of Legends will receive acknowledgment both in real life and within the game itself, ensuring their achievements are immortalized in the League of Legends community.
Recognotion for Esports Icons
The “Hall of Legends” is a testament to Riot Games’ commitment to honoring the rich history and contributions of individuals in the League of Legends esports scene. This initiative is set to deepen the connection between the game, its players, and its fanbase, enhancing the legacy of what has become more than just a game, but a cultural phenomenon.
