New LoL cinematic

#1 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

Hi, i just wanted to share this really well done CG league of legends cinematic !
As LoL is one of my favorite and most played games, and has been for almost 3 year now, its really cool to see something like that and also i you compare it to the season 1 trailer they put out awhile ago you can see how far their cinematic department has come.

Seriously though, fuck Tryndamere.

What the fuck did they do with the artstyle. I mean it's technically impressive, and I think Twisted and Tibbers look awesome, Garen too for that matter. But wtf, Kata and Annie? I even had to doublecheck to see if it was Trynd or not... Kind of reeks of more money than talent, I actually prefer the old cinematics, they had more spunk.

Also lol at Riots fetish for Parkhour Ryze.

It doesn't even make sense from a design perspective. The guy is carrying heavy books and shit. Make, I dunno, Teemo or something the parkour champion. He's small and nimble at least.

@azteck: Well if you saw the behind the scenes video you would have listened to them saying that they didn't use MoCap for this cinematic because FUCK PHYSICS.

@porkellain: Ehh, I can understand that, what with not all champs being fully humanoid.

Not a LoL player, but that was really cool!

How does one keep armor so shiny after falling through all that dirt and debris? Completely unrealistic, broke all immersion.

Pretty rad. I just started playing and been using Garen. Nice to see him kicking ass.

If I were to believe the comments of most CG trailers on the site, all CG trailers are useless/rubbish.

Buy RP now.

Sorry, but I think they could have used the budget and done something like a community tournament? I don't know, I just get the feeling all that RP money is mostly contributing to cocaine and imbalance.

Cool cinematic but it had a really weird flow to it.

I recognize maybe one of all these characters, but it's pretty cool.

Is ahri in it?

That was a lot of Garen without a single Demacia shout.

Ridiculously awesome Baron though

It is pretty nice, seeing LOL from its humble beginnings to this world wide videogame phenomenon its been pretty fun for me.

Still having lots of fun with it.

I just don't understand some of these battles as they stand. TF vs. Fiddles? Why not TF vs. Graves? That makes WAAAAAY more sense. What about Nasus vs. Renekton? Renekton would look FUCKING AWESOME in CG. Garen vs. Katarina makes sense due to the rivalry. Also, Annie was my first champ, so she holds a special place in my heart, as does Tibbers. However, I'm fucking saddened that they couldn't once have Garen yell "DEMACIA!" or Annie say "have you seen my bear Tibbers?" before summoning him.

Baron Nashor was fucking rad. They've stated that it's a preview of what is to come with a later update for Baron. Cannot wait to see what happens with that.

I don't know, I just get the feeling all that RP money is mostly contributing to cocaine and imbalance.

Are you aware of how amused I am by the idea of Phreak, Morello, Xyph, Ezreal, FeralPony, and Trynd all being strung out and hyper as fuck after snorting fat rocks? I would pay money to see that video of ridiculous idiocy!

Who the hell plays Garen mid against a Kat or Kat top against a Garen. Fags.

Again, due to the rivalry between Demacia and Noxus, it makes sense that Garen and Katarina would be fighting. It's not necessarily about lanes. Also, top lane Kat is thoroughly viable, as is mid lane Garen. Don't knock it until you try it. Pro tip: Trundle top is TOO STRONK!

@xolare: this is my favourite post I've read today.

@hockeymask27: There is indeed. They stated that it's a taste of things to come in a future update. = D

Are we not going to point out that the Baron in the video kinda looks like a giant penis? I sure hope it looks like that in the future.

You say that like it's a problem.

This is the internet. There are dicks everywhere.

The new cinematic is pretty neat but some of the renditions of the characters irks me, but i never do like the changes they make to the character artwork.

Also there is this LOL video which is similar but had a much smaller budget

edit* it even features Garen Vs Kat for some reason
