Fan-made LoL Worlds trailer hypes up the fans, unlike the anthem

League of Legends esports received a weird twist when it comes to drama this year as the chosen song took centre stage instead of team interactions and issues.

Fnatic may have had to play without their starting marksman in League of Legends World Championship 2021, which was followed in the subsequent year with another round of troubles for the team as both the marksman and support tested positive for Covid-19 just a week before the Play-In stage. Still, if you guessed that would be the talk of the town, you would be wrong.

It seems like this year's edition of Worlds lacks hype, in part thanks to the Worlds Anthem, which was not well-received by fans. Most commented that the song feels less connected to LoL and more to Lil' Nas X himself and others were unhappy that Riot Games didn't produce a hype-worthy video to go along with it.

The performer fired back on Twitter and TikTok, claiming that the song is not at fault but those who don't like it are and it would appear it's impossible to please the fans.

Not long after, Silvxs posted a trailer for the tournament, one they made themselves, without a giant production budget or featured stars singing or rapping. The reactions were the opposite, pretty much everyone loved the trailer, despite it not having an actual song, which was substituted by lines from players, coaches and casters.

It's safe to say at this point that LoL fans are not impossible to hype up but the video and the song actually did miss the mark this time around.
