    Developer of the best-selling video game League of Legends holds an annual “We Riot” event. In 2014 the company flew employees from offices around the globe to Seoul, where they joined 145 Korean employees for a week of furious activities including the 2014 League of Legends World Championships at the World Cup Stadium. “Best time I’ve had in my entire 17-year gaming career,” said one participant. Riot also has a “Play Fund” where Rioters can spend up to $300 on other video games throughout the year.
