If you had 60 seconds to give new players a crash course in League of Legends, what would you say?
We’ve seen many awesome ideas and strategies come out from our summoners, with countless posts tucked away in their relevant forums. How would you like your audience to be not just on the forums, but the entire League of Legends community at large?! Winning entries in the Valoran Video contest have the potential to be featured on our Learning Center and New User Guide, as well as receive a cool 5000 Riot Points!
Your task is to introduce new players to League of Legends through a variety of 60 second video topics!
- This must be your own work. You or your team have to record, edit, and voice-over all of it!
- It must be addressing one of two topics: Map awareness or Laning basics
- You may submit an entry and win for both topics
- Your submission must be as close to 60 seconds long as possible
- Your video submission must be uploaded to YouTube and linked in your email to us
- Your video must be at least 720p (1280x720)
We will be accepting submissions until October 25, 2010, so double-time it over to your minimap, lane, or elsewhere! The two winning videos will each receive 5000 Riot Points as well as the chance to be featured in our Learning Center as one of the featured videos! Submit your entries with a link to the video(s), your summoner name, and the server you play on to email@example.com by October 25. If you want to check out the official rules, they’re right here and here.
Here’s a few tips to get you started:
- Plan out what you want to show off beforehand and then record those clips
- Turn your video settings way up before recording. You don’t have to play a full game with them, just enough to make it pretty
- Save voiceover recording for afterwards, once you’ve got your shot list and script prepared
- Make sure your sound is good. Is the game too loud? Is your voiceover high-quality?
- Have fun! You always sound better while happy and excited!
Edit: We're opening this up to group efforts. Feel free to work in teams and tell us to split your prize if you win!
Update 2: We're including Europe in the contest, so the submissions aren't limited to English only.
