The trailer for Beautiful Game portrays HLE in a day of practices and scrims. The video depicts HLE not just as “nerdy gamers” but a team of professionals who are committed to their lifestyle and carry a sense of competitiveness, no different from sports players of other established sports.
As part of the Beautiful Game campaign, HLE will also launch a social awareness campaign to promote a healthy and sustainable gaming lifestyle to Korean teenagers. The teenage age bracket takes up the majority of League of Legends players as well as HLE’s fanbase.
