PAX East 2012 has come to a close, but if you weren’t there
to catch the action or just want to relive
those unforgettable moments, we’ve got you covered.
Our booth was filled with summoners from all over North America to
spend some quality time with Rioters and League of Legends,
including two highly anticipated champions: Hecarim and Varus!
Here are some of the highlights from the show!
As expected, cosplayers were in full effect and sporting some
of the best craftsmanship on the show floor.
During the Cosplay Fashion Show, they got a chance to show off their creativity
on stage for all to see. Britthebadger put on a show
as Orianna our Lady of Clockwork, complete with a floating bal
and voice over. Dfoxx blended right in with the champions
of the League as Kassadin that it’s hard to tell there’s a person
in the second photograph. Jilikins slithered in as Desperada Cassiopeia, tail in tow.
Even Urf made an appearance as Regal Cabage took to the stage with spatula
and fish in flipper. To see the rest of our remarkable
summoners in costume, click here for the full gallery!
Not only were attendees witness to an
amazing display of ingenuity, they also experienced
a touching moment when Blind Trooper
as Mafia Graves bent to one knee and proposed to his girlfriend,
grim0ire as Explorer Ezreal. She accepted
much to everyone’s delight, especially Blind Trooper’s!
We wish the happy couple the best of luck and expect wedding invitations!
No event is complete without some friendly competition and
there was quite a bit of that with 32 teams duking
it out in the Needlessly Large paysafecard Tournament!
And why not when presented with a chance to take home $2,000
and other awesome prizes from our sponsors paysafecard and Razer?
Taking 3rd place was the pretty in pink Team Underground
Alley (Havek, DN740NM, NickDangerr, Hue-Hurricane and Zoff).
Flattening most of the competition was
The Pancake Syndicate (ZodiacMunch, GamesChess, TurboSherb, BebHead
and SanchoPanda) finishing in 2nd place and earning $1,000 total.
Coming out on top and earning the $2,000 grand prize
was Team on a Boat (Ayux3, I Got A, Im goin fast and and Mostly Silent)!
