All That’s MMO: Champion Select to Bring Social Media to League of Legends

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? That’s a deep philosophical question, and one that also applies to League of Legends. If you go 20/2/10 as Annie but never share that fact with your friends, does it really matter? It probably doesn’t. Sure, screen capping is always an option, but it’s a tedious, inefficient option that often produces lackluster images and requires players to go searching through their files looking for their saved images.

AltEgo has found a solution to this conundrum. Champion Select, an app for the Android OS will allow players to share their game results via Facebook and Twitter through the use of highly customizable posters. These posters will include player stats and an explanation as to who else was on your team for the match. Moreover, players will be able to cycle through a number of their most recently played matches and be able to look at just who they played with. Thought someone did a great job supporting? Find their username with Champion Select and add them as a friend for later matches.


This Android OS app is free to all and CEO of AltEgo Seth Gerson promises Champion Select will receive continuous updates allowing League of Legends players to further customize their experience. “We’re designing special posters for Pentakills, Quadrakills and other in-game achievements. With over 70 million LoL players worldwide, we’re creating many different styles of posters. We get inspired by classic movie posters, album covers and even World War II propaganda posters.”

As an added perk, Champion Select will allow players to quickly and easily cycle through the various character skins at the press of a button. Lance James, Community Manager for Trion Worlds offered this: “The victory posters got me interested, but then the ability to check out different skins easily and quickly for all of the champions really got me hooked. This app will let you actually see a champion’s skin and give you an idea of what it would look like in-game better than anything else I’ve used before.”


If you’re one of the 70 million League of Legends players out there and happen to own an Android phone, this app definitely seems like a steal. Be sure to check out Champion Select when it goes into open beta tomorrow. Don’t let your in-game glory go to waste!
