Sharing this because the animation is pretty neat, especially the warrior silhouettes in the clouds bit. Song’s OK too. So, I can appreciate it on that level, and I’m sharing it because I think you might too. 

What this basically is is a League of Legends advertisement. I’ve never played LoL and know almost nothing about it other than it’s a free-to-play MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game that makes its money from micro-transactions. 

So, it’s interesting to me what this video seems to say about the game. What this video taught me about LoL is that no one has fun. Really, video is almost entirely made up of angry players throwing their headsets and smashing their keyboards because, apparently LoL is SRS BSNS. (Also, keyboards have two L’s) Makes me wonder why any of the players in the video devote their time to something they seem to have so little fun doing. I guess it keeps them from murdering each other, which is what they look like they want to do a lot of the time. 

I also learned that no females play LoL. I’ve watched the video two or there times now, and unless there’s one for a split second in the background, there are no female players shown. Would it have killed them? Even just one? If I had serious money, I’d put serious money on there being female LoL players, damn good ones too. 

To their credit, the players are shown to be racially diverse. So, while LoL appears, from this video, to be a game solely played by angry young men, it’s at least not limited to angry white young men. It’s something.

In the end, this a nice bit of animation and has a song that fits it, so I’m sharing it for that, but it doesn’t seem to say much positive about League of Legends players. 

I know it’s obvious, but I should spell it out before anyone gets upset, I’m not talking about actual LoL players, or the game itself. I’m only talking about the content of this video, and I’m not saying that the content of this video applies to the game or the players in real life. I’m sure there are LoL players of all ages and genders and I’ll bet most enjoy playing.

Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago our message board and general inbox were bombarded with demands we address something called the “GamerGate Scandal”, posts written with the urgency and rage one would associate with, say, discovering that Chipotle burritos are made entirely from the meat of human babies. It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

The “scandal” turned out to be an excuse for an Internet harassment campaign against a random indie game developer who, like many such targets, was a female and a feminist.

It was all sparked by a single forum post from a jilted ex-boyfriend, but the ensuing outrage was so fierce and relentless that the story made it all the way to The New Yorker. This kind of spontaneous shitstorm is depressingly common these days, so we reached out to Zoe Quinn to see what it’s like to be the Internet’s Most Hated Person (well, for a couple of weeks, anyway). Here’s what she told us.
