Want to get good at League of Legends? Like, real good? You need to go to China's new LoL bootcamp.

Chinese eSports outlet 175kh.com recently unveiled the training center, which is located in Shanghai's university district of Songjiang. There are about seven institutes of higher learning located in the area. That's no accident, because the training center plans to recruit applicants from the student population.
