Giant Add

I didn't expect much from it, knowing how Riot handles PR, but this seriously? This is far from a documentary, this a blatant infomercial. They actually could have easily avoided that, by completely leaving out the villainous back story, but sugarcoating it like this? Portraying the Backstory like this, completely ignoring Pendragon and the DotA Allstars incident, is truly hypocritic. From the "documentary" you can easily get the impression, that riot popped into existence and spent 6 months developing their Champions and designing their kits. Yeah that impression is unfortunately incorrect. Riot got founded and not much later the DotA Allstars Forum disappeared, without notice. Central hub for all things concerning Dota, hero design, balance discussions, ideas for the game, everything. Guess what happened? Those Dota loving Kids hired Pendragon and with him bought all Ressources concerning DotA, since he as the websites Host, had full control over the Server running it. And suddenly not only do we recognize familiar designs in LOL, we also find implementations of the Communities design ideas from the forum, lots of it. Teemo from the movie? Yeah that guy is an immigrant to runeterra, rammus wasn't even changed in the slightest from the forums design. Nobody could sue anyone, since Pendragon owned the domain and Blizzard owns all designs by the Warcraft 3 Modding License Agreement. The esports part is actually interesting, this feud has been dying down over the past decade and this was the chance to make ammends with the (now in Dota 2) still active Community from back past. But riot decided on a dishonest infomercial.

Basically one big ad for league

I generally really like video game documentaries. However the documentary part of this is really lacking. Theres like a 5-10 minute blip about the creation of the game, but after that it just ends up talking about the esports/community aspects. Which, I still find interesting, but I would have much preferred a more in-depth look into how league was made. They never really talked about balancing, or the challenges of making certain champions or even the gameplay itself. Instead they focus on the rise of the league esport, the celebration of its fans, and how it can bring people together. Much more time on how the game actually was made and challenges of the game itself would make this documentary way better. Great credits music though.

Insightful Documentary on the Rise of the eSports Internationally.

As a gamer in the who lives in this day and age, its nice to be able to witness the rise of esports and relate to the experiences of other gamers across the globe. I've honestly not played League before. Thought it was crappy when I first heard about it. But was glued to a load of other games. Meanwhile, to witness other game developer giants being able to rise and surpass the likes of EA/Blizzard/etc. is really quite something. Touches on the origins of the company, but also more on the rise of esports and cultures surrounding gaming, which helped make League what it is today. A must-watch for fellow gamers, even if you've not played LoL - I'd still recommend it.
