When it comes to gaming, the last thing you want is a broken system. FPS drops slow your game to a crawl. Packet loss causes speedups and slowdowns that stall your game into a perpetual loading state. Random bugs caused from poor connections create weird unexplainable errors that drive users crazy. RIOT Games needed help distilling this information into a fun, League of Legends-focused explainer video. The team needed an animation to highlight these sluggish processes and show users a proper system setup that can close network-intensive applications and avoid unwanted in-game deaths because of lag.
