The second instalment from K/DA’s new “ALL OUT” EP has dropped, titled MORE, and it’s definitely ‘the baddest’ so far.

League of Legends’ K-Pop powerhouse K/DA are back with the music video for newest single from their upcoming EP, “ALL OUT”.

The track, entitled MORE, was released on October 28, and features the familiar vocal talents of Madison Beer, SOYEON and MIYEON of (G)I-IDLE, Lexie Liu and Jaira Burns.

The song is the title track of the five-track EP, which includes the already popular THE BADDEST, as well as three other songs entitled I’LL SHOW YOU, VILLAINS, and DRUM GO DUM.

There was also an also aftershow livestream following the premiere of the song on TikTok, starting at 5 minutes after the song dropped, where the band are teasing behind the scenes treats and interviews.

Seraphine’s K/DA debut

This song, however, has a difference: it’s the first K/DA track to feature LoL’s newest pop princess, Seraphine.

While the mysterious artist Seraphine has been heavily active on Spotify, releasing covers of KDA’s POP/STARS and iconic tracks such as t.A.T.u’s ‘All the Things She Said”, we have yet to see her make her mark on stage alongside the other K/DA artists.

It’ll be exciting to see how Seraphine continues to fit into the already establish foursome of Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai’sa, especially considering the vast differences in each artist’s vocal styles. Seraphine’s music has been much softer with an acoustic focus – entirely different from K/DA’s, yet she’s proven that she can adapt to be exactly what K/DA needs.

Will K/DA perform MORE at the World Finals?

It’s safe to assume that K/DA are lined up for the World Finals performance, something that their whirlwind tour around Shanghai.

Either way, it’s exciting to watch the band grow the closer they get to the finals, and LoL fans can’t wait to play them in game and get to know them even better.

Major British broadcasting company BBC are set to release a five-part documentary following UK esports organization EXCEL ESPORTS.

The series, named ‘Fight for First: EXCEL ESPORTS,’ follows the org’s team in the European League of Legends competition LEC throughout the 2020 Spring Split.

The documentary is narrated by Cillian Murphy, an actor who’s been nominated for awards at the Golden Globes and BAFTA, and will be broadcast on BBC iPlayer in early 2021.

In 2020’s Spring Split, EXCEL finished in seventh place — narrowly missing out on a spot in the playoffs with a record of seven wins and 11 losses.

Dele Alli recently joined the growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene by partnering with EXCEL.

The description for the upcoming documentary will shed light on the “deep-rooted” reasons that the players compete as they are “navigating the growing pains of adulting, living away from home, love, new friendships, and fame.”

November 2020 was a busy month for the organization, not only changing their logo and ethos to represent “The Power of Better” but announcing that Tottenham Hotspur and England national footballer Dele Alli had joined as their first global ambassador.

Dexerto spoke with CEO Wouter Sleijffers at the time of the announcements to understand the need for change and what the future of EXCEL looks like.

“My sons love gaming,” said Cillian Murphy. “When I showed them the trailer for this, they said I had to do it. Being involved in Fight For First has been a great experience and there is so much more to professional gaming than I ever thought. It has opened up a whole new world to me and this series provides a proper insight into a fascinating, global industry.”

BBC picked up more esports programming just in November, acquiring the rights to broadcast Counter-Strike competition BLAST Premier for the remainder of the 2020 season. In 2020 alone, the media giant has also shown Rocket League and sim racing.
