League of Legends is among the most successful eSports in the world right now, and the lion's share of that success is due to developer Riot Games' support.

But what, exactly, has Riot done to nurture League as an eSport -- and why? Riot VP Dustin Beck hopped onstage at GDC 2016 to break down the details, and in the process spoke to the investments Riot has made in eSports and the lessons it learned along the way

It was an interesting talk that offered a rare, frank look into the development of an eSports ecosystem, including the bumps and the learnings along the way.

If that's something you might be interested in watching, good news: you can now watch the entire talk for free over on the official GDC YouTube channel.

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its new YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC, GDC Europe, and GDC Next already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page. Finally, current subscribers with access issues can contact GDC Vault technical support.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech
