League of Legends stars came together to perform some of the popular MOBA’s top soundtracks in an incredible music video for the game’s 10th anniversary.

League of Legends has had many iconic theme songs since its launch in 2009, such as the annual Worlds theme song which as always highly anticipated by fans as was seen this year with the release of Phoenix.

Many of the popular personalities involved with the MOBA decided to pay tribute to the recent 10-year anniversary by performing some of the game’s most recognizable songs in a unique music video.

The video, made in collaboration with Riot Games, was shared by Youtuber Albert ‘sleightlymusical’ Chang and featured personalities such as FlyQuest star Pobelter and OfflineTV’s LilyPichu.

Each of the musicians involved performed snippets for 25 of the game’s themes in one take, based on the order of each of the songs’ release dates.

They started with the original League of Legends intro and worked their way through the list performing many fan-favorite songs like POP/STARS and Legends Never Die before concluding with Phoenix.

LilyPichu performed her part on the Piano while Pobelter is seen as one of the violinists in the 10-year anniversary tribute.

The pair were accompanied by Albert Chang and eight other talented personalities and musicians as they highlighted just how far the game and its soundtracks have come.

Although the video was not officially released by Riot Games, Albert revealed that they contributed to its production, “Thanks Riot Games for working with me on this project. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do.”

The video has already received a lot of support from those in the League of Legends community and is set to reach 100,000 views in less than 24 hours after it was posted.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
