Every year, Riot Games releases a new song for the League of Legends Worlds Championship. Many fans were extra excited as it was announced that Lil Nas X would be the one performing the new song. Now, the song is released, and we are here to tell you everything about what you can see in the music video.
- Get a new mouse for Worlds 2022 here!
The song premiered at 16:00 CEST on YouTube and showed some of our favorite players from the four major regions. But, who do you actually see in the video, and which champions can you see as well? Here is everything you need to know about the new Worlds song for 2022, Star Walkin'. But first, you can check out the video here:
Where Does the Video Take Place?
The video is located in San Fransico, which is where the Worlds 2022 Finals will be held. The location is revealed from the famous Golden Gate Bridge and the shot of the whole city, with its well-known skyscrapers in the background.
Which Players Can You See in the Video?
Throughout the newly released song, you can see four players, each representing their own region.
Team Liquid - CoreJJ
It looks like Riot did not predict the disappointing results from NA's Superteam, Team Liquid. The representative for the LCS is none other than Team Liquid's support, CoreJJ. Team Liquid did not qualify for Worlds 2022, and therefore, it is a bit strange seeing the support as one of the main characters in the song.
Gen.G - Chovy
The LCK representative in the video is Gen.G's midlaner Chovy. Gen.G has been doing very well lately and dominated the LCK in Summer 2022.
EDG - Meiko
LPL's representative is none other than former Worlds champion Meiko. Meiko and EDG won Worlds 2021, and he is notoriously known for selecting Yuumi for his Worlds skin, though we have to admit, it is kind of cute that he used his own cat as inspiration.
Fnc - Humanoid
The person in the song representing EU is Fnatic's midlaner, Humanoid. Fnatic finished third in the LEC Summer Playoffs after surprising everyone with their good performance.
Which Champions Can You See in the Video?
After being introduced to the four players, we see four champions with some new skins appearing. Each champion is now changed into giant robots. Does this mean the Mecha skin line is returning to LoL?
Another interesting point regarding the champions is that each champion in the music video belongs to one of the players.
Worlds 2022 Azir + Chovy
We have already been introduced to the new Worlds 2022 Skin for Azir. In the music video, you can see Gen.G Chovy standing on the champion. Chovy is known for dominating on Azir in mid lane.
Thresh + Meiko
Another champion we can see as a massive construct in the middle of San Fransico is Thresh. Even though Meiko chose a Yuumi skin for last year's Worlds, he is very known for his playstyle on Thresh.
Rell + CoreJJ
The third champion we can see is Rell. Rell belongs to CoreJJ, and he has had some insane plays on the champion earlier this year.
Twisted Fate + Humanoid
Last but not least, we have Twisted Fate. Twisted Fate looks so incredible in this video, especially when we see him next to the Golden Gate Bridge. Humanoid has been playing quite a lot of Twisted Fate throughout his career. However, he is not very known for the champion this season.
