League of Legends is a complicated video game., LoL was brought up and the sports aficionado desired to guess what the game was based solely on its name. Standing upand gesticulating extensively, McAfee passionately, confidently came up with a beautifully off-base premise for what a video game called”League of Legends”might be. Stemming from a conversation about how the Oculus has altered his understanding on video games, McAfee confesses he never ever liked video gaming because he was bad at it.
What do Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kris Jenner and Dwanye ‘The Rock’ Johnson share? They’re all characters in League of Legends according to the imagination of previous NFL star Pat McAfee.
League of Legends is a complex game. At over 140 champs, Riot Games’ multiplayer online fight arena video game has just grown increasingly more challenging to master in the decade since its 2009 release.While the enormously popular
, internationally renowned MOBA can be puzzling to even its most devoted fans– it’s clearly even more puzzling to those who understand nothing about it. One such person is McAfee, a decorated
former punter for the Indianapolis Colts who is now a podcast host and (sometimes)expert wrestler.On a current episode of The Pat McAfee Show, LoL was raised and the sports fanatic desired to guess what the game was based exclusively on its name. Standing upand gesticulating extensively, McAfee passionately, confidently came up with a beautifully off-base premise for what a game called”League of Legends”could be. For mobile users, segment starts at 1:55. Stemming from a conversation about how the Oculus has changed his understanding on video games, McAfee confesses he never liked gaming due to the fact that he was bad at it. Now, he’s fascinated and uses
that interest to LoL where he tries to guess what the game could be.Unfortunately, his very first premise starts off on the incorrect foot:”Almost like the NFL, you’ve got 32 groups and it’s a league.”Then, it gets a bit more complicated when he begins thinking
about the”legends”aspect: “There are legends that run stated team … actual legends, like characters … Stone Cold Steve Austin probably has
a group to combat against. The Rock probably has a team. These are legendary human beings.”I would presume Kris Jenner has a squad, there’s a legend in a different field … Maybe the Schitt’s Creek authors acted.” As for the fight, McAfee pictures that LoL’s groups “play each other in some sort of sport” which maybe that sports includes killing and swords, due to the fact that “It feels like possible sword game.”
Ultimately, the NFL icon gets to see some footage of the video game and understands that no, the Jenner matriarch and Schitt’s Creek writers are not managing groups of sword fighters. Instead, he quickly wonders if what he’s seeing is some sort of hybrid of Risk and the Sims.
By the segment’s finish, McAfee learns a little bit more about LoL and perhaps creates an alternative game franchise that Riot can check out.
He and his fellow hosts also end up relabeling the title “Lots of Love” and decide that the greatest League of Legends gamer of all time would be … Winston Churchill.
