Light and Shadow | Star Guardian Animated Trailer - League of Legends


Sawano does it again. Fucking genius.

This is to promote a new set of skins on League of Legends.

By the way, let me take this opportunity to ask: why don't we see more LoL threads here on gaming side? I wasn't familiar with MOBA games, but my boyrfriend introduced me to LoL earlier this year and it's all I've been playing ever since. I freaking love it!

Loved the look of the animation. They always knock it out of the park when it comes to these.

My theory would be: this forum appeals to people who have generalist gaming habits, since it has a lot of variety. Most people I know who play League play mostly or only League, so are better served by specific forums like the subreddit.

I think it's less about interests and more about how ResetERA forums are structured. Most game specific discussion around online games such as LoL can be found in the Community subforums.

Looks like Three Houses.

I don't care for LoL, but if their fighting game looks anything like this, I'm in.

Man they go balls to the wall to sell skins. That was a great video. They've done some killer promo vids in the past.

It's not a real Sawano song if there's no German gibberish in there. I did not understand a single word the singer sang, so it was neither German nor English I think? XD

You should check past song releases of LoL. They are mostly all amazing. Riot does a REALLY REALLY good job with music. Every big skin launch is always accompanied by an epic song.

I just wish part of the budget went to make the Rakan and Xayah skins better

I stopped playing League many years ago, I became addicted and I was ruining my relationship with my wife and son at the time.
Crazy I know, but it is the truth.

it's not the most welcoming sub-community for LoL

Oh wow this totally went past me! If they do the right thing and enable cross-progression and cross-play TFT then this will be incredible!
If they enable true cross-progression, it's a wrap. I think that's a very easy way to get tens of millions users to instantly jump into the mobile version.

I also hope it sticks, because apparently I have an insanely rare skin and I didn't even know it.

Damn... kind of making me want to redownload this.

Well it would be pretty foolish to not do it in my opinion. Players have hours upon hours poured into their accounts, many won't restart. And what skin is that?

Right? I don't think this is supposed to pull new players to LoL, but rather offer that huge player base a new option to play.

When I was in college a million years ago, I bought a physical copy of League and got this Silver Kayle skin:

Yeah exactly and it's not like they won't be expanding the playerbase eitherway ontop of it! Also wow I wasn't even aware this skin existed, it could be straight out of Dark Souls o.o

Who animated this video? I assume they outsourced it.

Also I want SG Anne, Earth Bender and Gnar (Gnar as the lil pet magical girls have)

Glad you dug the video, OP!



Sorry you didn't dig the video!
It's well produced, I just feel like everything is anime now. Probably confirmation bias though.
Yeah let them go back to their really generic setting when they first launched the game! Or you know, if it's not your cup of tea, maybe just wait for the next thing that interests you?
Happy to do that, but it seems to be split about 80% anime to non-anime stuff.

Yeah, it's dope and I'm 100% reinstalling. Like I said earlier - Vainglory & Arena of Valor (and even DOTA 2) all had their moments, but character kits just feel so much better in LoL. Having that for my commutes would be... next level bonkers.

Glad you dug the video, OP!
Great work as always. I'm certain you can't comment on it, but if you guys are working on that mobile LoL client, I hope you are considering cross-progression for character, skin, etc unlocks!

I feel you, I tried many MOBAs but LoL is the only one I stuck with, aside from Master X Master but that had a tragic fate :( But yeah TFT and LoL everywhere would be next level bonkers, well said :P

The scene at 1:06 was hilarious to me. All I could think about when I saw that was PATHS from attack on titan. It doesn't help that they share the same composer lol.

Riot is a cancer of a company. Regardless of what you think of League, some of us refuse to support them.

I love how every League of Legends cinematic is in different style. Loved this one even though I'm not sure what was going on but the music was amazing... chills.
