2015 URF API Challenge
Submission for the 2015 Riot URF API Challenge by:
Spencer McDonald (Wylennissa:NA)

A live demo can be found here: http://notanothervlog.com/index.php
For our API challenge entry, we decided to mask the API data in the theme of a university. By using a university theme we displayed the data in an entertaining way that still allows interesting statistics about the game to show through.
On each page, except on the homepage and about page we implemented the API data to immerse the viewer in a world where the University of Rift Fighters exists.
Our theme was designed to incorporate URF to the nth degree by making a university not only involving his name, University of Rift Fighters, but also making him the university mascot.
We wanted to treat the champions as students being graded in particular areas of expertise. You can see this in our demo by either logging in as a student from the hompage or by going to the student page and clicking a specific champion.
There is a lot of room for expansion on the University of rift fighters theme. That being said we believe we have created the basis for a “university” website and show its potential for the future.
