Professional 'League of Legends' gaming is way more intense than people realise

In this documentary series, “League of Millions,” we chronicle the phenomenon surrounding the “League of Legends” video game and follow a pro team in its quest for the 2015 championship. Playoffs at Madison Square Garden are just weeks away.

In Part 1 of the series, we explore the game and its allure to fans around the globe, who pack stadiums at the level of the largest rock concerts and sporting events. And we meet Team Liquid, five elite players who comprise one of the top North American teams.

In this instalment, Team Liquid is experiencing some of its worst — and best — moments of the 2015 season.
