League of Legends World Championships is one of the biggest e-sports events in the world and to make the event much more interesting for the viewers and the players the company started opening ceremonies of the event. In 2018, we witnessed an incredible augmented reality K-pop performance with popular K-pop group (G)I-DLE, and American artists Madison Beer and Jaira Burns when the world championships took place in Incheon, South Korea.
LPL’s FPX defeated Europe’s super team, G2 with a dominated 3-0 victory to keep the Summoner’s Cup.
This year in Paris, developer of the game Riot took the opening ceremony ahead with an incredible concert featuring holographic performers before Europe’s G2 took on China’s FPX. The event also debuted a brand-new in-game musical group called True Damage, revealed earlier this year.
A large screen on the stage holographically projected the in-game characters and other special effects with the real-world performers; at times, multiple versions of the performers were displayed, and it was not easy to tell what was real.
All three performances were a stunning combination of technology and choreography and the ceremony ended with the dramatic reveal of the Summoners Cup — massive championship trophy — which, naturally, was housed in a high-tech Louis Vuitton trunk.
Watch all performances below:
League of Legends has reached a much higher level with completing 10 years of the game, and multiple announcements like a mobile version, an animated series, a fighting game, and lots more.
