CLCBTA (OCE)
: Voice acting!
Riot isn't overly likely to help you ( on the OCE sub anyway ) due to most of their game and cinematic efforts being handled in NA, or being outsourced. Thankfully, I can help. **Equipment.** You don't need to have a pro recording area and sound board to get started. The most basic and inexpensive setup involves your Computer, a Blue Yeti Microphone, and Audacity. As you get more and more into your passions you can upgrade, but honestly you can produce pretty high quality audio with just that. I've made Ad reads, songs, and character dialogue with such a setup so far. **Skills.** Your voice is like a muscle. You can make it stronger with hard exercises, you can make it more adaptable with dexterity exercises, and learn styles and accents with roleplaying exercises. You should try and practice training your voice as many different ways as possible. Learning complex songs ( low barritones, high pitches, long notes, quick rap ) is a great and fun way to practice. You can also benefit from Acting, Drama, Shoutcasting, anything that involves good projection of your voice. Hell, working in customer service was a great thing for me. Talking for 9 hours a day, and needing to be charismatic to a varying audience and being paid for it is a pretty nice setup. **Early Days.** There's thousands of people in Voice Acting, as a hobby, or to be professional. Because honestly, it's just talking. It's not like playing the Violin, or blindfold rubix cube solving. So, there will be a lot of competition. Apply for as many roles as you could see yourself doing. Using public applications sites such as Casting Call Club, Behind the Voice Actor, or general boards like Reddit or Craigslist. You're unlikely to make any money starting off. Just build on your contacts, profile, and published work. **Management.** Eventually, if you stick to your guns, you'll start to build a name for yourself. Online personas are easy work, as long as you're not expecting anyone to pay you or take you seriously. If you are, then you need to make sure you start following proper work relation guidelines with your clients and fans, and maintain a healthy social media presence. You can also devise an actual personality to go along with this. Mr. Positive, the edgy one, the expressive one, whatever you identify with. **And then?** If you get to the stage where all of this is useless information, you should be surrounded by peers and colleagues who can show you the way, and help level up your career. Best of luck, you're going to need it. ~J
: Oh I agree it was a great story, and somehow it wouldn't have been as heartfelt if it was a girl and a guy (or even two girls for that matter). But why Varus? It was a good story and a good champ, but they forcefitted the two. It's like if they took someone like Kat and be like "oh yea but shes actually Shuriman and was adopted." Like.. there's no point changing her story for no reason to something that is and has never been relavent to her. When you have a good idea Riot, make a new champ for it, don't be lazy and throw it at already established ones.

It was done in a pretty beautiful, tasteful way. The film clip especially is great at highlighting the love these two had for each other. I don't think that means that varus is gay though, because varus is the darkin, with the two hunters fused into his body. So he's 2/3rds gay?
: not really predatory but it is still gambling. you do have a choice and it wont affect the actual gameplay due to being purely cosmetic.
I won't fight that it's pretty much gambling, but there's a minor detail that companies use to get away with such things and even target them at children. In loot boxes, you are guaranteed to get something. Even if it's not what you wanted, you do get some sort of prize. "Gambling" implies the risk of losing your money for nothing, whereas in loot boxes, you never just get nothing. You might get a skin shard for a champion you own, or some useless blue essence, but this minor prize in a way circumvents the definition of "Gambling." It's the same with other things, such as the lucky dip boxes you see at childrens stores, and Trading card booster packs for ( Name a TCG with rares, shinies ect. ) and because you get something every time, they are technically classified as "games of chance" and not directly gambling. Changes SHOULD be made, and it is pretty much gambling. Here's to knowing the info.

Cosmetic upgrades are completely optional, and don't improve on one's gameplay should be encouraged for monetisation of your existing I.P. Locking content behind a paywall that is all but required to enjoy the game? THAT is predatory.

: Worlds viewing party disappointment - Hoyts Melbourne Central
Sorry to hear the disappointment Rexx. I'll pass this on to the group that ran the Hoyts Central viewing party. I hosted the Worlds 2016 as well as the OPL Finals at Hoyts this year at Central, and this year I was at Victoria Gardens for Worlds instead of Central. It was a much smaller venue, super cosy. A lot less stressful than the 100+ capacity of Melbourne Central. Seems like manpower was streched thin this year for Worlds, and they tried something new for swag bag distribution. The 2014 style you saw was more my style of running things, but different organizers have different methods and ideas. With feedback like this, we can tell when ideas work well, and... when they fall to pieces. So, thanks for vocalising the problem, so we can work towards it not happening again in the future. :)

You were a bit abusive, and you went AFK. That deserves a punishment.

Maraudaur (OCE)
: Normal Draft test coming to Oceania
A move bound to happen eventually, but I have a concern. A lot of people find themselves "Stuck" in support in normals, and that's going to happen here as well, it's unavoidable. Will we be sticking to the usual of having people be auto filled when their selection isn't rolled to them, or are we going to start giving better incentives to queue in fill? ( besides quicker games ) the idea of minor increases of LP being rewarded for filled players in ranked was shot down, and rightfully so, but perhaps an increase in IP for non ranked players who select fill?

Implosion (OCE)
: Should OPL have 10 teams instead of 8? Maraudar where you at?
Unfortunately, Riot is in no state currently to implement these changes. While there is a current pro roster of approximately 40 players, there is also substitutes, and in some special cases, coaches who are also adept at the game, and while there is a distinct difference between a part time player and a full time player, opening up the league to 2 more teams is only going to extend the amount of people in one distinct group, rather than working at closing the gap in a more meaningful way. Let's look at some numbers. Australian teams have a large following when it comes to fan bases, however that doesn't really transition over to broadcast numbers themselves. Riot's production budget for the OPL is immense, and it's showing in their growth, however due to the scene not being marketed to international audiences very effectively, 90%+ fans are from Australia and New Zealand, and because we have such a low populus to begin with, the numbers just aren't there. Additionally, Riot's production facility in Sydney isn't just used for the OPL, but also other regions including the LPL, LMS ( I think? dunno ) and a lot of international tournaments, handling the English broadcasts. Adding an additional day a week to broadcast is going to put a strain on the facility, the talent, AND the viewers. Viewers barely turn up to both days of the OPL, focusing mainly on watching one specific matchup a week, and whatever else they catch unintentionally. I think that Riot would absolutely want to get another 2 teams competing in the OPL, however the current attention of Riot Oceania has been moreso focused on the legitimacy of Esports as a business investment, and marketing the concept as a whole to large scale investors ( Dire Wolves say thanks ) or to traditional sporting organizations ( Legacy says thanks ). The next goals for Riot are apparently to increase team funding, so that teams can hire more support staff, such as social media managers, video editors, marketing / PR managers, and other niche things such as player psychology experts, and personal trainers and health instructors. I've only seen a peak behind the curtain through friends in both teams and at Riot, and there is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes, and with most choices they make, they usually know what they're doing. ( Don't get me wrong, I do have some critical feedback, but I also do lack a lot of insider information that'd possibly explain their decision making in some choices ) Riot is building stability, and looking at some big plans in the coming years. All you can do is trust they're exploring options ( especially ones such as the 10 team format, which has worked wonderfully for large scale regions ) and await the big things to come. Hope that helps explain some :)

Jason (OCE)
: A problem with LoL, and a solution
The new problem there with draft normals is that it impacts on queue time. A fair few players have already said that a game of LoL takes too long. Adding another 2 or so minutes on that would be annoying alternatively, blind draft, where each player has 30 seconds to pick as it goes down the list, and you don't see your enemy picks....

Husy15 (OCE)
: At a first glance, i thought this would work... However.. Insta-locking is not the root of the problem, and to properly remove an issue with ANYTHING, you must strike at the root of the problem. What is mean is: IF someone is thinking of taking a lane, and a champion, and not caring about their team... They will do this regardless, it doesnt matter if you stop them from locking in for the first 10 seconds, 30 seconds, minute... they will do this regardless... It's very hard to fix the problem you've discussed, Even if they implemented draft mode, they would still arise with these same problems, people stealing lanes because "it's not ranked, who cares, im taking mid, go support". And well.. draft mode isn't viable in OCE due to the amount of people playing...

It's not that funny, but the length is good - Zooming requires some refinement - The players need some sort of branding or identity, We don't know who they are, they're not overly distinct Contact me privately for tips and shit.

: Consumer Protection Laws regarding purchased items and permanent suspensions.
Blasted Riot, hiding their schemes in legal doctrine in plain sight that we just don't feel like reading as responsible consumers....
: Need some constructive criticism
Work on audio balancing. That's the main one. If recording in OBS, you can actually separate your microphone from your game sounds and other people talking, so you can change the volume of one independently. The use of a clip before the intro is good, but it needs to be a quick clip. The 30 second clip about [REMOVED] is good and all, but there's a fair few seconds of silence in there, where you have nothing. That's no good. You want to try and keep the first clip to below 15 seconds, and you're free to cut a few times in the same one recording to save time and still convey the full story. You're playing around and having some fun with some elements of editing which is good and all, over time you will adapt some preferences and end up with some tropes you keep coming back to. This will be your style, and once you discover it, it's important to honor it as best you can, to keep your content consistent with those that are already on board and subscribed. I've done content creation and advising for years, if you've ever got questions to ask, come and find me :)

: Rift Rivals Sin
SIN's whole thing right now is that they are a force of pure disruption to the local Esports scene. Last split pulling some amazing wins vs LGC and CHF in the groups Then playing 15 competitive games in 3 days, besting AV and CHF, as well as taking LGC to a nail biting game 5 And again now, against all odds, taking on almost an entire foreign region and only losing to the best of the best, who then wiped our entire region. Combine this with their "When things get messy, we can out-mess anyone" play style and SIN are the true DEFINITION of what a Wildcard is, and what they can do.

I'm updating the thread now whenever more juicy gossip and news hits the streets. Hopefully people that are either slightly behind on the times, or just not informed at all, will have all the information they need. Popcorn not included.

: Hi, I'm Loathey, Esports Coordinator at Riot Oceania. Ask me anything!
You're in a position where you have to satisfy the Company you work for, the Teams / players whom depend on you, and the players / viewers who benefit from a job well done. Is one of these more important than the others in terms of how you prioritise your day to day tasks? or is this all just a balancing act that requires a lot of sacrifice and discipline?
