LEAGUE OF LEGENDS (2009-PRESENT, RIOT GAMES/TENCENT)
In 2009, Riot contracted Duncan to serve as Audio Lead during open beta for their post-DotA project, League Of Legends.
"At the time, no one could have known the project would go on to become the "world's most played video game" - the team was just making the game as fun as possible. I ended up reworking the audio system, riding herd on the SFX, delivering a ton of VO, and scoring the game at launch. Most of the original score is still in the game, and in 2012, Riot asked me to score the update to the 3v3 Twisted Treeline map. I'm incredibly proud of what we accomplished, and humbled by what the project has become over the years."
League Of Legends has gone on to become a massive international success, with more than 12 million active players daily (source) - and as of Oct 2012, more than 1.2 billion hours played per month.
