Since then, fans of the Riot Games MOBA, film critics, and viewers of all kinds they have raved about her, and has broken all the records of the platform of streaming. On Vandal We explain why in the following video.

Spectacular animation to bring an interesting plot to life
If there is one thing that stands out in the series at first (and really, throughout all the chapters) it is the quality and originality of your animation. With a unique style, Fortiche puts on screen scenes full of life, absolutely spectacular combats, chases with impressive dynamism and characters with amazing facial expressiveness.
Of course, the artistic and the technical support an interesting story, the kind that leaves us glued to the sofa until the available chapters are finished, for which it is not necessary to have played League of Legends or know his universe to enjoy it (although obviously fans will find multiple guides). This is basically because it is a story of origins: Throughout its plot we learn how some of the MOBA’s most beloved champions have become those characters.
The plot tells the conflict between two cities with their own problems, Piltover y Zaun, the first a city steampunk in full splendor and the second a kind of suburbs of the previous city where its inhabitants survive thanks to the community spirit that exists between them. When they both do discoveries shaking their respective societies, the tension rises until breaking the brittle peace that for years has prevented a massacre.
This plot context surrounds and advances the plots of the characters. The development, dramas, internal conflicts and relationships of Jinx, Vi, Jayce, Caitlyn, Viktor and other champions who have a leading role, who are very well drawn and who are capable of making us empathize with them.
