I saw this commercial while watching wrestling the other night. Was very confused about what was happening until the end.

no matter how good commercial this is, its still toxic community and aslong as the community stays the same, the game remains unplayable

I'm like 95% convinced that all this promo work is actually just Riot shopping the prospects of a potential League of Legends anime since they seem more determined than ever to break into newer markets.

I really want to enjoy Ama Lee's song again but this commercial is not helping with that.

On the one hand, it was cool to hear "You Say Run" in a commercial. On the other hand, that just made me want to watch MHA rather than play League of Legends.

Yeah, when I first saw these commercials I was like "What is this?!", and then League of Legends came up and I was like "Oh."

Also, what kind of crazy budget do you need to license You Say Run for a commercial?

game is enjoyable from gameplay viewpoint.

moment you introduce the players though...


I doubt there is a worse community.

Wow, as always you can always put more of a budget behind and ad than you can a full show. That was amazing. Now how many said, I want the game to be like this?

Saw this commercial watching NBA on TNT this week or last week. Not the first commercial where they've licensed songs, pretty easy to do when you're still the #1 pc digital revenue gross(according to Nielsen), I guess.

Would it be too much to ask for a commercial that shows us what the game LOOKS LIKE? Might have a little more advertising outreach--As it is, I only know the game and characters from fan art.

...Is it mere hipness or just shame at being a browser-app game?

Well, I can say that Riot Games are doing a pretty good job, the League of Legends community became much bigger, so to say those advertising works perfectly. A big number of players from all the world are joining the League of Legends army every day, and this is awesome. There are a lot of player's that are coming from Dota field to enjoy League of Legends gameplay, and all of them like this game very very much. I am one of them, and I have not been playing Dota for years now. Honestly, I like League of Legends but it was really hard to enter this world for a player who had all the champions from the beginning in Dota. League of Legends player's will understand me, and most of them will say that this is awful when you can't play all the champions because you need to spend some time to be able to buy them. I solved this issue pretty easily, I bought a League of Legends account from lolfinity.com with a lot of Blue essence and that's how I bought all the champions at once, and started to play. I received this account instantly, with unverified email, so I had the opportunity to change the email for my own and this account is now mine for 100%. I think this is much easier than playing for hours long to buy at least one champion (Yasuo)
