Riot Games has announced Live/Play, a documentary series that offers a look at several top League of Legends players and gets a more personal look at their struggles, triumphs, and tragedies. A trailer was released today, with a full program to follow at an unspecified date.

Reminiscent of Valve’s Free To Play documentary, which highlighted several of the top players from the 2011 Dota International, Live/Play

“tells the very personal stories of some very passionate League of Legends fans around the world — the new mini series will include stories from an LCS photographer, an amateur conductor, and an aspiring esports pro.”

According to the video’s description, the players hail from “Korea, Norway, Taiwan, the United States and more.”

Even though I don’t play Dota 2, I liked Free to Play, so I’ll probably watch Live/Play as well. I’d anticipate that the two programs will mirror each other in many ways, but hopefully Live/Play can better explain the game to a mass audience instead of just catering to the crowd that’s already into e-sports.

    Fun Fact: RIOT had to shut down the Forums once due to how toxic it was becoming.

    Fun posts such as: “Draw me a picture of the prophet Mohammed”
