League of Legends Year in Review 2017

If you’ve been playing League of Legends this year, you’ve probably noticed a few things. We’ve seen the Animated music video for the Legends Never Die DLC, the change to the runes system, and the rise of FlyQuest and OMG. But what else happened in 2017?

Animated music video for Legends Never Die

Animated music videos are often a great way to make the game more entertaining. While this music video is no exception, it does have some shortcomings. The animation style doesn’t always match the video’s overall feel. The animation style varies across scenes, but the beat is consistently strong and the lyrics give the piece a good through line.

The video is a trip on its own, but the context is a little unclear. In it, two players, Val and Kai, are in a battle, and Val is injured. They head to a temple to get help, but when they get there, they fall into a well. Darkin, the evil creature that rules the game, appears.

FlyQuest’s rise

The Viola Family, the same people that own the NHL’s Florida Panthers, has announced that they have acquired FlyQuest, the French League of Legends franchise. The team was founded in January 2017 and has since expanded into Super Smash Bros. Melee. FlyQuest’s roster is comprised of players with a variety of skills.

After a fast start to the season, FlyQuest has been able to beat a number of teams. They have been able to do this by trying different drafts centered on the smite top tactic. This strategy has allowed FlyQuest to finish in a tie with TL at the end of Week three. Their success has also given them the opportunity to make it to the Summer Split.

OMG’s fall

OMG had a storied history of rises and falls, but the organization has managed to rebound with a number of new additions. They’ve also revamped their teem with a single new player, and are now depending on some of their biggest stars to lead them into the future. Ultimately, it looks like 2020 will be a positive year for the organization.

As the year wound down, the world championships were held in Europe and Asia. This year, the western teams took home the prize money, and the eastern teams were unable to make a mark in either competition. It was a sad year for the Korean teams, however. SKT and KT Rolster both failed to qualify for the LoL World Championship, and KT Rolster went out of the Mid-Season Invitationals. They were eliminated from the championship in the quarter-finals by Invictus Gaming, and the tournament moved to Europe.

Cloud9 Challenger’s rise

Cloud9’s rise in League of Legends was highlighted by an unexpected year-end prize. The team won the National EPS Season VI competition with a record of 12:3 in games and six wins in series. They beat everyone but Quas’ New World Eclipse, winning $6,000 in prize money. Cloud9’s story is not finished, however. We’ll continue with Part 2 of the team’s rise in League of Legends.

Although the team is relatively unknown outside of the LCS, its members have a background in competitive League of Legends. Many of their players have won scrims against top-level teams. As a result, they’ve been dominant in the last two splits.

SKT’s Worlds performance

After a dismal start, SKT looked to find some resurgence in their League of Legends Worlds performance on Wednesday. With the help of a late-game macroplay, SKT swept the mid lane, taking down both Crown and Ambition. They also found a carry champion in Faker and Bang. Moreover, their aggressive play allowed them to turret in the top lane and mid lane.

Game two was a different story. SKT’s early-game performance was not enough to catch up with the Misfits’ late-game dominance. The team was unable to capitalize on a five-on-four advantage until midgame. The Misfits eventually called Elder Dragon, but SKT took advantage of the opportunity to steal the buff. The teamfight ended at 25 minutes.
