“Although League of Legends celebrated its 10th anniversary worldwide in 2019, we couldn’t help but create a celebration dedicated to the Italian community, for which League was officially launched, in Italian, in 2013. We absolutely want to recognize the passion and dedication that, over the past 10 years, our players have poured into the League, with the wish that they continue to do so… and what better occasion to start this celebration, which will go on throughout the year with various appointments, than the fantastic Naples COMICON frame with an exceptional guest?” declares Carlo Barone.
As part of the celebrations for the 10th anniversary of LoL, Napoli COMICON will also host the LEAGUE OF LEGENDS COSPLAY CONTEST – 10 YEARS OF LOL, a cosplay contest dedicated to the most famous MOBA in the world. The appointment is for Saturday 29 April from 16.30 to 19.00 at the Arena Flegrea (Main Stage). The jury will be formed by Pu Liu (Game Director of League of Legends), Luce Cosplay and Mogu Cosplay. Federica di Paola, aka Icon Stitch, will lead the event. The contest is open to everyone (individuals or groups) and includes a single category: Best Original.
