League of Legends Worlds 2014 trailer is a dramatic way to launch a tournament

Worlds

You know about e-sports tournaments. Maybe you've even watched an e-sports tournament. But have you seen an e-sports tournament depicted through an earnest, slightly silly, but, if I'm honest, pretty great anime-styled trailer? If not, get ready to, because Riot has released this audacious opener for the 2014 League of Legends World Championship.

Day one of the tournament is happening right now. You can watch it live through Riot's Worlds 2014 tournament page . Not sure who to support? Our LoL expert James Chen produced this handy guide to the teams taking part in today's Taiwan group stage.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
