Alright, I’ll admit it. I used to play a lot of League. A lot. I never made it past plat 1, and failing my series for diamond was sadly one of the best things that happened to me. As soon as I missed out and just barely missed diamond for a season, I no longer had the drive to play competitively. But my interest in League is starting to rekindle with VR LoL. This picture shows what an amateur was able to achieve with just his own wits and ingenuity. And VR is just getting started. As companies start pouring capital into virtual reality, it’s only a matter of time before LoL VR becomes huge.
And holy heck, someone has already made a program for it that someone I missed. I gotta share this video with you guys. This guy is some sort of coding wizard. As someone who appreciates VR but doesn’t fully understand it, props to this dude for forwarding the cause. While I no longer play LoL, I still enjoy watching vods at my convenience. Watching them in VR? Now that’s intense.
Wow. That is a whole new way to look at League.
Sliver.tv is the behemoth pushing forward League of Legends in VR
$6.2 million dollars in funding for immersive virtual reality is the amount that Sliver.tv has already raised. It’s not just League of Legends in VR – it’s also VR CSGO.
Slow-mo, different viewing angles, zoom-in – you name it. This is the most incredible way of viewing e-sports I’ve ever seen. It’s so immersive. Compared to sitting back and just watching, this is a whole new ball game.
Can you play League of Legends in VR?
If you could actually play LoL in VR, I might just have to come back to the Rift and lose another 1000 hours of my life. Luckily for me, you can’t play League of Legends in VR… yet. I mean, with the way VR is growing and the huge success of the PSVR, VR is only going forward. Today, we can watch the Rift like a God from above. Tomorrow? Maybe I’ll be landing cross map Ashe arrows in full VR. (It’s killing me that Ashe is finally competitively viable now that I stopped playing. Gah)
