US League of Legends streamer and personality Christian ‘IWillDominate’ Rivera (aka Dom) is about to make his professional casting debut on a Riot broadcast.
He will be joining the LPL English broadcast stream on July 11th, covering the top-tier of Chinese League of Legends. Specifically, matches between Suning and Top Esports, and Team WE and JD Gaming.
He will be joining the likes of Joe ‘Munchables’ Fenny, an experienced UK play-by-play caster who has worked with ESL UK on Premiership broadcasts, on the UKLC, EU Masters and more, and now works on the LPL English broadcast.
Joe said he can’t wait for Christian to join the show.
Mate, it’s gonna be a bloody banger cast. Can’t wait to have you on.

IWillDominate is a former pro player and current streamer and content creator for Cloud9. He also has experience co-streaming.
The news comes after IWillDominate secured the right to co-stream the LPL last month. He said he was grateful for the opportunity and hopes to ‘get more Westerners interested in the best league in the world!’
It’s likely Dom will take on the role of colour caster, alongside the play-by-play casting of Munchables.
IWillDominate has more than 1m combined followers across his channels, including 826,000 followers on Twitch and almost 250,000 on Twitter.
Another Cloud9 content creator is Emily Perkins (aka Perkz), a school teacher based in Leicester in the UK, who shares an online name with Cloud9 pro League of Legends player Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković. She was previously mistaken for the pro player Perkz on Twitter a while back, and at the time, IWillDominate and Caedrel picked up that she was fundraising for charity and they both donated $500 live on screen.
This eventually led to the other Perkz joining Cloud9 as a content creator: Cloud9 sign the other Perkz, a school teacher from Leicester also known as Emily Perkins.
Dom is an award-winning writer who graduated from Bournemouth University with a 2:1 degree in Multi-Media Journalism in 2007.
A keen League of Legends and World of Warcraft player, he has written for a range of publications including GamesTM, Nintendo Official Magazine, industry publication MCV as well as Riot Games and others. He worked as head of content for the British Esports Association up until February 2021, when he stepped back to work full-time on Esports News UK and as an esports consultant helping brands and businesses better understand the industry.
