Riot Games has delivered various banger cinematics for its main events over the past few years. Whether it was the season announcement, in-game events, or the League of Legends World Championship, fans were showered with mesmerizing cinematic videos and songs. But lately, it seems Riot has forgotten what fans really want, which can be seen from the backlash the company has received from its latest cinematic reveal.
The Season 2023 cinematic, The Brink of Infinity—which was released on Jan. 10—may well be Riot’s biggest oversight in this regard. Within hours of its upload, many League pros and content creators expressed their disappointment with the cinematic on social media.
