Yes, most of the characters have fierce backgrounds but I think some would be more complimented by gentler and more mystic themes.
The question is, if a League of Legends player heard your song, would they be able to tell it's based on a LoL champion?

The easiest way to fix that problem is to add vocals and lyrics, but there's room for adding champion voices, spell effects, or even partially working existing LoL melodies into your piece.

I don't know... I can see plenty of musical ideas and expressions within most of the characters. Plus, some champs like Ahri or Lee Sin, have some ethnic flair in them. It really isn't hard to find some ideas... Then again, I'm a music major and what not... Who really likes to study music of films and things...

Hi, I'm sorry to ask again...

I'm an American, but I live in Portugal. Portugal isn't on the list of eligible countries, and is actually one of the few countries in the EU that isn't on the list.

Can I enter if I have an American address (like my parents' house)? lol

Soooo, does this have to be a rock song? The rules are very strangely written.

inb4 this is a stupid question.

Does this mean it has to contain guitar parts?

Question...is it not allowed to write a song and someone else sing it? Idk if it can only be 1 person or what. I can write songs but suck at singing.
