Happy Friday, friends of Wisdom! I’m Jaycie, newly promoted to VP of Media this week, and I’m jumping onto the Wisdom blog to discuss some of the media team’s biggest highlights of the week!
Our Teamfight Tactics broadcast team has been hard at work, starting with the Fates Qualifier 4 over the last weekend in February. Our creative team once again did fantastic work bringing the artistic aesthetic of the Festival of Beasts to the screen, captured most prominently in the motion graphics background for camera and full-plate overlays. In addition, our integration team made some big strides in how we integrate scoreboards — a crucial broadcasting element for free-for-all and other battle royale-type games. These adjustments came in clutch for our scorekeeping of Lumia Mania, an Eternal Return event, earlier in the month.
Once the dust had settled on last night's @TFT Fates NA Qualifier 4 Semifinals, we finally got a clear picture of who will make up the Finals lobby!
Catch the thrilling conclusion at 4pm PST/7pm EST — this time over on https://t.co/sfNVtOM30Q!

On the production side, our Production Manager, Cullen Pinney, has been working with his team to experiment with new broadcast tech in hopes of continuing to push our remote broadcasting capabilities to the next level. The advancements made here haven’t been without challenges, and I’ve been most proud of the crisis management of the whole company in these moments to solve internet, CPU and microphone issues (just to name a few!).
Those production and creative improvements have culminated in the Giant Slayer Spring Gauntlet — Wisdom’s first foray into the League of Legends space. The team has been broadcasting one of three Tier 1 Amateur events in partnership with the LCS, and the top four teams in the event advance to the LCS Proving Grounds. Although this week’s events are over, tune into the conclusion of the event next Monday – Wednesday at 7:00PM EDT on twitch.tv/giantslayerlol or twitch.tv/academy!

In support of these exciting events, the team has been ramping up publishing capabilities and looking forward to continuing to support communities through regular blog and social content as well as a rework of the Giant Slayer website! We have big plans related to this website, so keep checking back as we continue to grow.
