League of Legends goes virtual with Roe Visual


The 2020 League of Legends World Championship has taken place in Shanghai, with Creative Technology (CT) supplying ROE Visual LED panels to create an immersive xR stage to broadcast the international esports tournament.

The 10th edition of this annual tournament, like most major events in 2020, had to be re-envisioned as normally, the early stages of the tournament would be a travelling road show. With travel restrictions in place, and fans no longer able to attend matches, the team at games developer Riot commissioned LED technology from CT. The company used the same Unreal Engine-driven technology used to film Disney’s The Mandalorian TV series to create an immersive stage setup that changed themes depending on the stage of the tournament. This allowed matches to take place in a cloudy, cyberpunk Shanghai skyline or amid a flooded landscape.

The Lux Machina team was commissioned with the VFX and xR work, and as the whole project was livestreamed, there was no time for tweaks or fixes. The background needed to be adjusted and coordinated live to follow the movements of four cameras.

To build the xR stage, CT used three ROE Visual Black Pearl BP2 17m by 4.5m LED walls and a Black Marble BM5 17m by 18m LED floor to create a 3D immersive environment. Game desks were also built from BP2 using a total of 108 panels. LED processing was handled by two Brompton SX40 LED processors, including one for backup.

“The fact that we could not allow a gap between the LED walls and the floor was a challenge, but the LED floor from ROE Visual is easy to level and very precise, so we were able to make a perfect joint between the walls and floor,” said project manager, Aron.

A team of 40 artists and technicians realised the show, with Riot claiming that the LED walls, consisting of over 900 LED panels, displayed visuals at 32K resolution and at 60 frames per second.

“We’re proud to be involved with these League of Legends events, which are without a doubt the largest and most spectacular esports events happening,” said Grace Kuo, sales director for ROE Visual. “We’re thankful for the fact that CT trusts our products to use them on such a prestigious project.”
