Netmarble Lineage II: Revolution
Sitelines was hired by Netmarble to provide a complete production package to Launch the North American debut of their MMO Mobile Game Lineage II: Revolution at TwitchCon 2017.
We designed and fabricated a custom 50’x50’ consumer exhibit, and turn-keyed all technical support, lighting, and stage management to perform a successful multi-day live webcast and public event.
We took on the role of Technical Producer and Director for the TwitchCon Event, working directly with Netmarble's Executive Director from South Korea garnering an understanding of the show needs in order to organize the crew, pace the show, provide direction to the floor directors, generate and perform a detailed Run of Show, and fulfill the Executive Director's show concept.
Our Primary tasks included: Pre-production meetings, working with floor directors to organize a script tailored to the talent, translating the detailed script into a technical Run of Show that included 6 separate tech cues for all aspects of the show (two separate playback systems, audio, floor directors, webcast start/stop/breaks, lighting), working with video TD to switch the show, aiding in the technical video setup / video routing, organizing playbacks, leading control room technical setup, video switcher setup and management / and directing all Show and Stage managers through the Run of Show during the 3 day event.
Conan O’Brien, Day9, Gillyweed, Dreadnaught, and a number of other high-profile presenters and Cosplayers from the gaming and entertainment community, were brought in to host the live Twitch & Facebook broadcasts. Our team handled all of the Talent Management, hair and makeup, catering, game training, and client green rooms for the Launch.
It was important to showcase the scale the game, by having live 30 vs 30 battles—something that had not been done live on mobile devices before. High-density wireless access points were deployed throughout the booth to ensure that players were not disconnected while playing the game.
With a pair of guest streaming stations in a lounge environment, high-profile influences were able to explore the game with their Twitch audiences. Leveraging influencer audiences gave Lineage II: Revolution exposure that they couldn’t have done through traditional channels, and maximized the impact of the launch.
