Don't know much about League? Don't worry!

Riot Games

Probably the biggest barrier to entry when attempting to get into League of Legends is the massive amount of information needed to follow along. It's also one of the reasons the game is so appealing to players and spectators alike -- there's always more to learn as you peel back the layers after layers of strategy.

In the past, League esports broadcasts have attempted to balance on that fine line for the viewers that know a lot about the game and viewers that were relatively new. But with the addition of a second broadcast this season, an opportunity for a new viewer-friendly broadcast has opened up, and will be broadcast Saturday for the World finals between SK Telecom T1 and Samsung Galaxy.

North American shoutcasters Aidan "Zirene" Moon, David "Phreak" Turley and Isaac "Azael" Cummings Bentley will be on the broadcast, which will be streamed live on Riot Games 2 as well as on YouTube and the LolEsports website.

The regular broadcast will feature North American shoutcasters Joshua "Jatt" Leesman and Sam "Kobe" Hartman-Kenzler as well as EU LCS shoutcaster Trevor "Quickshot" Henry. The games are expected to start around 5 p.m. PT Saturday at the Staples Center.
