  • Every day millions

  • of people play League of Legends.

  • These are five of those players.

  • Cairo, Egypt

  • Amin

  • São Paulo, Brazil

  • Mariana

  • Mariana, how is the performance coming?

  • You should ask your other daughter.

  • Why her?

  • Because she will perform too

  • and she didn't practice last night.

  • Yeah, I got the feeling.

  • Seoul, South Korea

  • Can I have the scissors?

  • -Scissors? -Thank you.

  • Yong-Seung

  • I think lots of people will come today.

  • So be prepared.

  • Los Angeles, USA

  • -Welcome to Summoner's Rift.

  • -Braeden

  • Stykkishólmur, Iceland

  • Eyjó

  • My name is Eyjólfur Fannar Schevingnsson and I'm a fisherman.

  • -Nothing to do? -No.

  • I started fishing in 2005 because I was 18 years old and I needed a job.

  • So I was just forced out to sea.

  • I like my job. I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't like it.

  • But my dream is to work in game design.

  • We usually fish for two to three weeks and then we are off for like four days.

  • And we're off at the moment.

  • Today I'm going with my dad, it will be 45 minutes sail.

  • Reykjavik, Reykjavik. 60 04 out from Stykkishólmur.

  • And it's just blue everywhere.

  • Just the sky and the sea.

  • I came over to the States to really get into a house,

  • go over strategies and train.

  • First game of the day is always a bit sloppy.

  • This is where I either die or I make it big.

  • Alright, I made it big.

  • When I was growing up, I played sports a lot.

  • I loved going to these tournaments, these high pressure situations.

  • That was kind of my goal for life after that, was to just win stuff.

  • T8 right now it's like a family.

  • -We're just here for the same goal

  • -Linden, Braeden's Twin Brother

  • so that we can eventually make a job out of gaming.

  • I'm going to head topside.

  • Whenever I told people about it, they were very skeptical.

  • Wait, I'm going to ping this bush.

  • Playing video games is not a job, right?

  • I have to show them videos of the World Championships.

  • Then they kind of start realizing how big it is.

  • League of Legends is becoming the true sport.

  • Our team is getting ready for the promotional series.

  • If you win, you get a salary, you get exposure.

  • You are able to make a job out of gaming.

  • This is pretty much everything we've been working for

  • and it's going to happen in two hours.

  • I've never done cosplay for such a large group.

  • I don't know if I'm nervous.

  • I guess I'm more anxious.

  • Cosplay is about transforming into your favorite character

  • and interpreting what they do and

  • that's it.

  • I've gotten all kinds of orders for weapons, hats, etc.

  • I don't have another job. This is it.

  • Deciding to take part in this contest today

  • is taking it to another level.

  • People don't get that I'm doing this

  • because I have to do it for myself.

  • I really want to keep on doing this for the rest of my life.

  • Should we be going this way?

  • Where are you trying to go?

  • To the event.

  • -Do you need to unload? -Yes, we do.

  • Making robots turned my life around 180 degrees.

  • My name is Yong-seung, Kim.

  • My hobby is to make League of Legends characters into robots.

  • My latest project is the new Baron Nashor robot.

  • He's an extremely powerful neutral monster.

  • I'm looking forward to showing it. I think people will respond well.

  • Let's stop here and unload.

  • Here's your hat, sweetie.

  • Most people are creative

  • but they don't bother to act on it.

  • That's why I show my projects to people.

  • We're on the most recognizable bridge in all of Egypt. It's called Qasr al-Nil.

  • This is the main entryway to get to Tahrir Square.

  • So when the major demonstrations happened

  • on the 25th of January 'til the 11th of February,

  • this is how people would get in.

  • In 2011, Egypt erupted in revolution.

  • More than 800 people were killed in clashes with police.

  • Amin was 19 years old.

  • That was the first time I ever got shot at like by a real gun

  • like someone trying to actually kill me.

  • My name is Amin Abu Hashem and we're in Cairo, Egypt, District of Giza.

  • Actually I'm just going to stop. Bunch of tanks right there.

  • There's an APC behind me.

  • That is anti-terror, anti-riot police.

  • It's a lot of stress just like piling and piling and piling up on top of you.

  • League of Legends for some reason calms me down.

  • League of Legends, for those who don't know,

  • is an online game.

  • How can I start?

  • I started and I hated the game. I actually hated it.

  • I was so bad I lost the tutorial.

  • To be totally honest, I didn't like League of Legends.

  • I just didn't get the game.

  • And then I kind of realized what the game was about.

  • Five players vs five other players.

  • It's like five-men chess when everybody's moving at once.

  • You're trying to get to their base and destroy it.

  • And they're trying to do the same exact thing to you.

  • There's a lot of strategy because you have to be a cohesive unit.

  • You win the game by destroying an enemy building.

  • The objective is to destroy their Nexus, which is their central point.

  • You need to destroy this to win the game.

  • Hello and welcome back to the 2015 Spring Promotion Tournament.

  • I'm Max "Atlus" Anderson along with Jake "Spawn" Tiberi

  • and we'll be your hosts for this all important best of five series

  • between compLexity and Team 8.

  • Right now it looks like 56% of you

  • think that compLexity will earn the right to keep their spot.

  • ...Robert is four into one each...

  • We walk in the LCS Studio and we see compLexity and we're like,

  • "Oh boy. These are the guys we're going to have to beat."

  • Even though compLexity at LCS...

  • They look like Gods.

  • And it really looks like...

  • I think everyone's thinking, "I hope we're ready for this."

  • Can you guys hear me alright?

  • Uh, I hear you.

  • When you're on stage there is a lot of distractions.

  • There's the crowd. There's the signs. There's the lights.

  • Even the camera that's watching your face.

  • But you have to forget it all somehow.

  • Game's going to start.

  • We are onto the rift everyone.

  • A spot in an LCS is on the line in this best of five series

  • between compLexity and Team 8.

  • You have so much adrenaline in your body.

  • You're so close to getting into the LCS. It's one match.

  • Yeah, I'm going to come top early. Lee's going to be bottom side.

  • ... is doing a good job of being outside of these minion waves

  • so it's not giving birth.

  • And we can see that the first gank is towards the topside.

  • Porpoisepops coming in for another gank.

  • The head's up is going to be a real...

  • There is the twisted advance onto Westrice.

  • Doesn't have the ultimate yet. Only level four.

  • That's a brilliant pulverize blast. Is it going to be enough to triumph?

  • Porpoisepops picks up the kill.

  • Woah, woah, woah. Who's this Katarina?

  • He doesn't let up!

  • Ahmed you're taking so much harassment.

  • So much, you can't dodge his Q?

  • Lag, lag.

  • DC'd, DC'd.

  • Hey, is chat disconnected for everyone?

  • Cairo's a harsh environment

  • if you're never been in any Middle Eastern culture.

  • For me to game, I need to accept that there are things beyond my control.

  • By the way, the power went out.

  • We're working off the generator.

  • The server is down?

  • The Middle East doesn't have a server,

  • so everyone either plays in EU Nordic/East,

  • EU West or North America.

  • The first time I logged into a European Server,

  • there was an overload of information.

  • I go on and I say, "Guys, I'm new. What do I do?"

  • And I remember the first thing someone said was Russian. It was pure Russian.

  • And I was like, "Uhh."

  • And someone like responded in Polish.

  • And I discovered that Poles

  • have like a weird like squiggly thing coming out of some of their letters.

  • I was like, "Oh, that's Polish."

  • The Danish have a slash through their Os.

  • It was interesting.

  • And I met people from all over the world.

  • I played with people who were like in refugee camps in Jordan,

  • metal heads in Sweden.

  • It's cool. It's cool to meet people from different backgrounds

  • and learn about their life.

  • My father owns 150 islands in Breiðarfjörður.

  • We go there together and hunt minks and foxes.

  • We take a little boat to the beach.

  • Tie the boat there to a rock and then we walk to the house.

  • Part of my family's living is collecting eiderdown.

  • This is eiderdown.

  • It's like the feathers of the eider bird.

  • Mink, fox and seagulls, they all threaten this duck.

  • If there's a fox, we have to go deal with it.

  • It's a very clever, clever animal.

  • Most of the time it's a big chase.

  • This is the fox. This is the dog.

  • Since I was a little kid, I've always been into hunting.

  • I guess it's the competition, man and animal, you know.

  • That's why I like the jungling in League of Legends.

  • Welcome to Summoner's Rift.

  • It's kind of like the hunt.

  • You come there and surprise your prey

  • and it's so satisfying when you get the kill, you're like, "Fuck, yeah."

  • Anyone can exhibit handmade pieces at the Maker Faire.

  • People bring in everything from knit pieces to leather craft.

  • Some people bring in robots.

  • I'm putting together my Baron and Kog'Maw robots.

  • I think I have seen this before.

  • This is the character from League of Legends.

  • This is a revised character that will be released in upcoming patches.

  • This is the new Baron.

  • Did you make it?

  • Yes, it took me two months.

  • -Is that Baron? -Yes, the new one.

  • It would be cool if there were Fiora.

  • What made you make it?

  • Why did I make it?

  • I'm a very imaginative person.

  • I made several USB gadgets.

  • I was good at building machinery. So I thought, "I can create a robot."

  • I was really into playing LoL

  • and decided to transform a LoL character into a robot.

  • So I made a Kog'Maw robot.

  • Then I thought I should build the characters

  • and have them fight against each other.

  • I built almost everything on the Baron robot by hand.

  • The process is difficult, but it feels great once I finish.

  • Anime Friends started two days ago.

  • It's a huge cosplay event.

  • Every day there are lots of different things...

  • They have bands from all over,

  • various cosplay presentations.

  • My sister and I will compete in the Free Play category.

  • Free Play is all about making the crowd laugh

  • not presenting a traditional version of the character.

  • We rehearsed a lot

  • and tried hard to make it funny.

  • I never used to get along with my sister

  • but a few years ago she started getting into cosplay.

  • Look, it's a little wolf!

  • Now we are inseparable.

  • She's my partner.

  • I have whiskers at home, we could put it here, right?

  • -I'm Karthus. -That's pretty.

  • -It's cool, right? -What I like most about cosplay

  • is not the outfit, the weapons or the accessories

  • but being the character in that moment.

  • You get to escape from who you are

  • and be who you really want to be.

  • We are at the game two between Team 8 and compLexity.

  • Team 8 leads it 1 - 0.

  • Game two, everybody's doing their job.
