CANCELLED - Building Real Life Communities in Online Gaming

Matthew Elliott  |  European Community Manager, Riot Games


Location: TBD

Format: Lecture
Track: Business, Marketing & Management
Vault Recording: Video


Think online gaming is just an anonymous digital portal? Think again! Based on his experience as European community manager for the League of Legends community, Riot Games' Matt Elliot will take a closer look at the ways in which tribal gamers are taking their social web experience offline and getting on the streets to connect.

Takeaway

Attendees of this session should walk away with a clear understanding of how real life grassroots player engagement builds advocates and supports passionate ambassadors of your game. Our goal is to communicate how to identify evangelists and pour rocket fuel on their passions, enabling new and continued growth.

Intended Audience

Interested in building long-term and deep player relationships? Want to grow your game through word of mouth and multiply the strength of a genuine human brand? This is for you (no experience necessary).
