League Of Legends World Champion Has The Best Victory Dances

Illustration for article titled iLeague Of Legends/i World Champion Has The Best Victory Dances

The League of Legends pro Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin wrecked another player during one of his recent live-streaming sessions. That’s not really anything remarkable to see, coming from a pro of Piglet’s stature. What is hilarious and awesome about the play is his little victory dance after he’s finished wrecking.


Watch this video a YouTuber captured from Piglet’s stream, and you’ll see why it landed on the front page of League’s 700,000 subscriber-strong subreddit today:

(Pro tip, focus on the box on the top-right of the screen that actually shows Piglet)


He did something similar a little while back, after two fools tried to gank him at the start of a match:

He’s actually been doing these funny little dances for a while:

So it’s sort of his thing at this point. I just wish that there were more silly post-rekt victory dances in the League of Legends pro scene. Other than Piglet’s, fans only really get stuff like...one pro putting his shoes on SUPER intensely after a match:

As with irl sports like Football, some fans see these kinds of victory dances as a sign of disrespect for the opponent. I don’t really agree. There are plenty of ways that Piglet could taunt people in-game if he wanted to just be a jerk—say, by walking up to the enemy’s defensive turret and spamming his champion’s dance animation. This is just a nice little way to humanize an impressive moment. League of Legends, and eSports more generally, could stand to have more of those.
