In Pictures: What We Learnt From Team Liquid’s Horror Movie

If you’re looking to kill an hour and 47 minutes watching Team Liquid implode before your very eyes, then the HTC sponsored eSports movie, Breaking Point fits the bill. Alongside the NA LCS team’s popular reality TV series, ‘Rebirth’, HTC commissioned the movie ahead of Liquid’s start to the Season 6 Summer Split – the footage caught on camera makes for nothing short of a horror show.

Team Liquid have had their problems, well-publicised to their fans and the wider League of Legends community, and after witnessing the behind the scenes footage from the debacle that was their Summer split, it’s easy to see why their ambitions of reaching the 2016 World Championship disintegrated once again.

Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett, former Jungler for Team Liquid has always been a divisive character. The spring Rookie of the Split polarised public opinion after frequent public outbursts on social media and numerous disciplinary problems. Dardoch’s abilities on the rift were clear for all to see… but sadly, so were his off-stage indiscretions.

Breaking Point certainly doesn’t shower Dardoch in glory, though the same could certainly be said for Team Liquid coach, Choi “Locodoco” Yoon-sub and AD Carry, Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin. The feud that develops between Locodoco and star player, Dardoch becomes difficult to watch as Hartnett’s dream of competing at Worlds evaporates – there’s no love lost between these two, in fact, the hate is palatable.

In case you haven’t got a spare two hours of your life to endure two immature League of Legends hotheads slinging slurs at one another, coupled with some entertaining, passive aggressive interviews – here’s what we learnt from Team Liquid’s Breaking Point:
