LoL CG and Such

I feel as though I may have done a post not entirely unlike this some time ago, but that doesnt seem to be stopping me. While I dont play much League of Legends at all really, I do love to watch it: just like other team sports this has it all - heroes, drama, spectacular plays and thrilling comebacks. RIOT esports have done a great job of building up everything around their events with all the commentators on the analyst desks and the casters themselves.

The recent Oceanic server event which will actually see us have a Nautilus Champion artificial reef is a pretty cool example of how they are engaging with fans of all types. Plus how cool is the new Music of League of Legends :-)

I feel like I should be supporting one team but there are so many cool personalities out there. I like how smiley some of the guys are like WildTurtle and KiwiKid and all of CLG look like they are having a good time. OCE is starting tonight and it has been fun seeing the EU and NA superteams doing their stuff.

Anyhow, as I get to know the game and the champions and the world a little better very cool videos like this one actually hold more meaning as the moves and character of everything is amplified or refined. Plus seeing how they went about making the video inspires me to knuckle down and learn some more 3D CG apps!!

While we are here, what about another pair:
