    A documentary on the League of Legends Afreeca Freecs squad. After flying to Korea to meet the Afreeca Freecs, I sat down with some of the most legendary Esports figureheads of all time: iloveoov, Kiin, Mystic, and learned just how this pro gaming team operates. Going to Korea and meeting the Freecs was one of the best experiences of my life and I hope I did their story justice in this League of Legends documentary.

To think you still don't have 1 Million subs is crazy. The production value of these videos are so high I could see them easily being streaming-service standard, if not even higher. Absolutely amazing quality work Gbay, and hope you get the viewership you deserve which couldn't be enough.

It's interesting to see that Afreeca Freecs seems to have a lot more of physical sport mindset. Of you can coach a player to be mechanically good but you cannot coach their drive and passion.

“That’s the second time I’ve played her” i think that line alone proves that your either born to be a pro league player or your not, these guys are a whole different breed compared to the average player. Second time I played orianna I played it in a classic match and fed so hard my team probably thought I was a bot

I never played League, but i enjoy watching worlds and lec/eulcs back then ,for like 4 years now. And i learned a lot about the history and development of this game, that i never played, from your well done, built and explained documentaries. Like half a year ago, youtube algorithm decided to suggest me 90min or something League video that i watched zero to the end at once. And here i am, watching ur older videos on your channel 😅 Keep up the good work!

Always loved the LCK, but the language barrier and distance has always made it hard to connect with players like us westerners can with the LCS and LEC. Documentaries like this help a ton to make connections, even if its just interviews over a screen. Very good documentary and Im positive this has made tons of fans for Afreeca

I saw your YouTube notification where you complained about having a low view count on your most recent video. I'm decidedly not a LoL guy, but I am a video producer... I watched this video and man you are great. This video is extremely well produced. You have talent and skill. That being said... LoL may not still be the place for you to make your money. Branch out. Add another game or have a unique approach to covering e-sports in general. Best of luck.

24:34 ''least impactful role in league of legends'' You don't play support do you ? - 1 Roam can ruin any lane - ADC indiferently of their skill either snowball or fall based on your draft and performance as a support - You shut down carries in the enemy team and keep your own alive - You control ALL vision in the game so any macro play is given a go or not based on how well you manage your resources to give vision control - You're the only role that can literally build utility items only and still be relevant as a damage dealer - You are the brain of your team since you don't need to farm or basically do anything, but exist to pressure, you can be on the map 24/7 taking in and conveying any information to your team without any delay Not to mention you probably don't play adc either or you would know what it means to have a Sona support vs a Nautilus ( irrelevant role am I right its not like you literally decide bot lane by just picking a champ )

I think GB you are wrong to consistently bash on players who are “too old”. Just like you keep mentioning part of Korea’s problem is not signing foreign players which is understandable considering language barrier. Then you have to look at what other factors can be changed including bringing in older players . This is not the NFL older players are not liabilities and I think Sooner or later other teams are going to catch on. Our brains compensate for loss of reaction time with a gain of understand net only brought on by experience. So quit calling people in their mid to late 20s fucking old because that’s not old. 77 year old presidents are old. 25 year olds are not old nor is that even the age of teaching your prime. You have to consider that and reflect on the ideas you are putting out there. Also I am loving this series! Could you also do a video on the misfits of Oakland As?!? Sounds super interesting!

In esports your career usually lasts till your 24-25. So being a 27-28 year old in esports is unusual. Asuch as old players may have experience the games constantly change so younger players are up to par as older ones the only difference is how their mental changes to losses and wins. Younger players are almost always better but some cases having a older veteran is way better. There's + and - to both and team have to evaluate them.

A team that does not care about trends, taking the most famous or young player, but a unique team, with unique members that revolves into one virtue only passion. They all seem great human beings, and the coach on top of them. That last speech left me in tears. I truly wish the best for them and will surely watch and root for them next year.

Thank you for making this video, it truly is my favorite one on all of youtube. It's so unbelievably inspiring and a true joy to watch. If youtube still had the "favorites" feature, this video would be the only one on my list. The quality of the video is also astonishing, i could feel your passion through the video and it is so heartwarming and motivating. And thanks for not having any intrusive ads. Way too often a "thought-provoking" video akin to this one ends with some soul-less sponsorship and ruins the entire feel and mood. truly a gem of a video
