Riot Games on Using AWS to Improve Gaming

In this video, Zach Blitz, head of infrastructure for Riot Games, discusses using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide players with the best possible gaming experience. Riot Games develops, publishes, and supports some of the most player-focused games in the world, including League of Legends, the world’s most popular PC game. With the 2020 global launch of Valorant, a team-based tactical shooter game, Riot wanted to reduce “peeker’s advantage” caused by latency to ensure competitive integrity. Using AWS Outposts, Riot was able to rapidly deploy game servers and reduce latency by 10 to 20 milliseconds, minimizing peeker’s advantage and creating a level playing field for all players.
