    Riot Games has been running League of Legends as one of the biggest Esports games in the world for years.
    And as the years go by and the popularity increases Riot Games has created specific rules for the Esports platform. Some being simple rules and some being quite rare and unique.
    By the way, for this video I read the full LCS rule set.

    If you pick the percentage of people in D3 and said that this are the percentage of people that can be a pro player, you aren't considering the rest of players above this elo. Wtf

    2:15 This isn't correct. Actually you have to add all percentages from Dia3 upwards. So it is 1.15% of all LoL-Players.

    You add the total of all the ranks above, it's not only 0.54 %, diamond 3 and above would be around the top 1%

    Sorry but, as a gay guy I just think a lot of them (LoL Proplayers) dunno about what they want and what they like, so they distract themselves with prosports to not deal with own sexual preferences (very typical for male players in my opinion, and maybe also a reason why the typical male player is slidly more homophobic in opposite to nonmaledominated scenes and surroundings, check current science bwois [source: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/87720149]).
    So..., if I had a boyfriend and being a super pro player, I'd rather be pushed than distracted by that! I can tell this about being pro in other parts of life than gaming. But in terms of motivation, with the right GF/BF you can be even more pro than before. So I think rekkles argument is' weird. Feel's like a 14 yearold decided to switch off his sexual life for just gaming. And I think thats.....not realistic.
    Also I think it would be quite helpfull if LoL / Riot Games casters would also ask the players not only of they had girlfriends, cause this is also determining their inner bounderies to not think about their sexuality in a more open way. It's a shame, 'cause I bet a lot of them are at least bi or even pan (i think about one or two proplayers who could possibly be pansexual in current proleague).
    Thats it with the gaytopic. Hi from Berlin.

      Why? They wanna win Worlds and if they think they have a higher Chance in doing so without Girlfriends then its completly normal to not have one i can understand that you wont focus 100% on League anymore when you have an Girlfriend because she wants some time aswell i would do the same thing you have to set priorities.

    "Only 0.54% will be playing". WRONG! or are Diamond II, I, Master, Grandmaster and Challenger not eligible for playing in a pro team?! so its a total of 1.15%, more than double.


    2:17 that is wrong, its 0.54 percent plus the percentage of the leagues above d3

  • Dazz Dostal
    Dazz Dostal 18 days ago

    Your math is off. 1.15% of the league community could be pro players because of the rank restriction. You didn't add up all of the ranks above diamond 3 you only used diamond 3. Diamond 3 is 0.54% of the league community. :)

    it's insane when you think about it.... people make fun of esports being "not real sports" because you play a game.... but it is impossible for a football player to train 14 hours a day every single day, because their body would break in a couple of days, having probably irreparable damage in a couple of weeks. In a way being an esports pro is way more intense and careers usually only last maybe 5 years before they switch from player to coach or owner of a team... There are football-players that were active during the beta of lol, that are still active players now, and here you have guys like ocelot, who started as an active player and now owns a team who went to Worlds multiple times already in the same timespan. And yet football players get paid in a single game what some of these lol-pros get paid in their entire career.

    Lan Mandragoran 21 day ago

    Bad math. 0.54 + .30 + .17 + .04 + .07 + .03 =/= 0.54% of the total league of legends player base. Unless you mean to assume every single pro player must ONLY be Diamond 3, and not Diamond 3 of above. Have a fuckin brain mate.
