Red Bull is set to host a “simplified” League of Legends World Championship Grand Final live stream made for newcomers to the game. The stream, described as “the perfect way for casual fans and newcomers to get involved,” will be broadcasted on the company’s Twitch and YouTube channels. The 2020 League of Legends Worlds Final will take place on October 31st in Shanghai, China.
Launching in 2009, Riot Games’ League of Legends quickly became one of the most popular online multiplayer games in the world. Now boasting millions of daily players, the game is one of the biggest esports in the world as well. The annual League of Legends World Championship regularly brings in millions of viewers, rivaling even the biggest events of traditional sports.
With over 150 champions, each with their own unique abilities and skill sets, League of Legends comes with a tactical depth few other games can claim. Because of this, new players may feel intimidated or scared away from the game. To help put some minds at ease, Red Bull is hosting a simplified version of the 2020 League of Legends Worlds Grand Final.
The Red Bull Worlds Simplified stream aims to teach new gamers all about League of Legends. Complete with some appearances from popular personalities in the League world, the stream will “provide a casting breakdown of every play for the new viewer and explain what’s at stake.” Pre- and post-match breakdowns will also provide further explanation for what exactly took place on the server.
The stream will be hosted by esports host Frankie Ward and broadcaster Tom Deacon. The pair will be joined by commentators and experts Ceirnan “Excoundrel” Lowe, Joseph “Munchables” Fenny, and Excel Esports jungler Marc “Caedrel” Lamont. More community figures are set to join the stage as well, including G2 Esports analyst Luciana “AngelArcher” Nadrag.
The Red Bull Worlds Simplified stream will be broadcasted on Red Bull’s official YouTube and Twitch channels. The main Worlds Final stream will go live on Riot Games’ Twitch and YouTube channels.
