For those of you who attended PAX last year, and are wondering if Riot will be in attendance, not to worry! We'll be there at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center from September 3rd through September 5th, and - just like last year - we've got a very special skin to commemorate the occasion.
If you missed out onback in 2009, you'll be pleased to know that we've once again collaborated with the Penny Arcade team to bring you PAX Jax. If you're an avid follower of Gabe and Tycho's Penny Arcade, then you're probably going to recognize the infamous Cardboard Tube Samurai. He's become such a phenomenon that even Jax, the Armsmaster has been taking some lessons!
Now, as if that weren't enough, while you're at PAX you'll get the chance to be one of the first to snap up the elusive Riot Singed. Any Riot Employee that you meet on the floor of PAX will be laden with cards redeemable for this modern take on everyone's favorite Mad Chemist.

- David 'Phreak' Turley
- David 'ByronicHero' Dunne

Alienware Arena Booth Join Riot Games for a bit of Costume Chaos. If you're at PAX and dressed as any one of our many and varied champions, stop by and join us for a game. We'd love to take a picture with you, and you'll be in good company amongst the pirates, ninjas, ballerinas, hippies, Elvis impersonators, doctors, babies, and pimps already in attendance.
And don't forget that we're always looking for new talent! Take a gander at our careers page before you head on over, and see if you're interested in any of our openings. Scott Lee will be accepting a resume on sight, so now's your chance to make an impression.
Oh, and if you're a native East Coaster who simply can't make the trip out to Seattle for the western chapter of the Penny Arcade Expo, don't panic. We'll also be in attendance at the next PAX East in Boston, and we'll once again have PAX Jax and Riot Singed in tow. We hope to see you there!
