Riot Games Partners With Secretlab For 'League of Legends' Branded Gaming Chairs

by Rainier on July 23, 2021 @ 9:00 a.m. PDT

League of Legends is an online multiplayer session-based game that combines elements of role-playing and strategy genres with addictive battle action. In League of Legends rival teams will compete against one another for victory on highly stylized battlefields and landscapes.

After an age of warfare, the superpowers of the land of Valoran have come together to form a governing body that will settle all disputes behind the closed doors of the Institute of War. Their task is a noble one — to lift the impossible weight of bloody war off the shoulders of the world and place it upon a select few — The League of Legends. On the Fields of Justice, legendary Champions forge alliances and resolve their differences in battle arenas. In the League there is one rule that reigns over all else: Winner rules all.

In League of Legends, players take on the role of a persistent Summoner avatar that gazes upon the battlefield from above and influences battles by taking command of a chosen Champion. During each online multiplayer play session, gamers will choose one of dozens of unique Champions wielding diverse skills and abilities, and engage in fast-paced team-oriented combat to bring their foes to ruin. Champions will gain levels, items, and abilities that enable them to slay their opponents and augment the strength of their allies by battling with enemy minions, foul beasts, deadly turrets and enemy Champions. Players also advance their Summoner’s rank and power to gain new abilities and items, assisting their Champions in battle.

League of Legends emphasizes team-oriented gameplay and players must work together in order to defeat the opposing team. Players will be able to communicate easily through in-game lounges and chat rooms, and forums will act as a conversational hub for a wide variety of discussions amongst community members. League of Legends will feature custom-built multiplayer support including matchmaking, stat tracking, clan support, anti-cheat systems, dedicated in-game ladders and Leaverbuster technology. In addition to extensive multiplayer features, League of Legends will include a single-player mode where players can learn how to play and practice new strategies by engaging robust Bot-AI.

Created specially for fans who love the rich lore of League of Legends, the Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection drops as Viego, The Ruined King, and the sinister Black Mist threaten to consume Runeterra. 

With an enduring legacy built up over a decade, League of Legends is a global phenomenon that has far surpassed its status as the world’s most-watched esport. With music videos, comic books, short stories and the upcoming Netflix animated series Arcane, the world of Runeterra is continuing to expand and evolve over different media and across platforms to reach and excite players. 

The Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection marks the latest chapter in the League of Legends universe, allowing players to step into the shoes of Viego, Miss Fortune and Pyke and immerse themselves in one of the darkest chapters of Runeterra’s history. 

Secretlab worked closely with designers at Riot Games to combine the distinctive aesthetic of Viego, Miss Fortune and Pyke with the advancements of the brand new Secretlab 2022 Series. Upholstered in the new and upgraded Secretlab NEO™ Hybrid Leatherette, the Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection (respective regional pricing can be found at launch) draws on unique elements from each champion’s armor, abilities and lore, bringing them to life with intricate embroidered details. 

  1. Secretlab League of Legends Viego Edition: The Secretlab League of Legends Viego Edition chair is inspired by one of the most formidable figures in Runeterra. With Viego’s arrival, you’ll be able to command the Black Mist to wreak havoc on your enemies. Wield the full power of the Blade of the Ruined King, embroidered on the backrest — it’ll let you show your opponents who truly reigns sovereign. 
  2. Secretlab League of Legends Miss Fortune Edition: Inspired by the famed Bilgewater captain, the Secretlab League of Legends Miss Fortune Edition pays homage to Sarah Fortune’s notoriety as a bounty hunter. Featuring her iconic pistols and upholstered in deep red leatherette, it is the perfect fit for the marksman looking to comfortably decimate their foes in a rain of bullets. 
  3. Secretlab League of Legends Pyke Edition: Taking inspiration from the depths of the ocean and the Bloodharbor Ripper himself, the Secretlab League of Legends Pyke Edition features the distinctive scales of a jaull-fish on its side wings. Skewer your opponents and execute them with your ultimate — they’ll never see it coming. 

“We’ve worked closely with Riot Games over the years to keep both pro players and fans comfortable, supporting the biggest regional leagues, global tournaments and each major milestone in the League of Legends universe with custom-designed seats. This meant we couldn’t go without creating chairs to mark the arrival of Viego and the Black Mist. Our designers enjoyed every moment spent immersing themselves in League of Legends’ rich lore once again to perfect even the smallest design elements and ensure our chairs faithfully recreate the spirit and aesthetic of their respective champions,” said Secretlab co-founder and CEO Ian Ang.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Secretlab. They have been a fantastic collaborator when it comes to celebrating major events in the League of Legends universe, helping to enhance the player experience and providing opportunities for personalized fandom. We can’t wait to see our community across the globe react to this summer’s new Ruination collection and experience this latest chapter of Runeterra both in and out of the game,” commented Riot Entertainment VP Marketing Ryan Crosby.

From chairs designed for global tournaments like the League of Legends World Championship and Mid-Season Invitational to collections inspired by the champions of Ionia, and virtual girl group K/DA and their chart-topping hits, Secretlab and Riot Games have worked together to delight fans at a variety of major milestone for League of Legends. Backed by years of research into performance ergonomics, Secretlab chairs have kept both the world’s best players and millions of League of Legends players around the globe comfortable with their award-winning seats.
