Before I did this for a living, a big part of my internet surfing youth was made up of spending endless hours watching XiaoXiao stick figure fights. There was something hypnotizing about the animation, as it was both simply and brutally violent, and I’m glad to see it making a comeback.
This is a video that was made for the League of Legends World Finals which occurred this weekend (and I attended). It has a 5v5 match between the nations of Noxus and Demacia (guess which is good and bad). Fans of the game will love it, though even those who don’t know who these people are should appreciate the animation.
Every time a new character appeared onscreen, 8,000 people in the audience at USC’s Galen Center would go nuts. It was awesome.
