... are you fking kidding me?
Okay rampant inaccuracies aside for now... the video is *massively* biased in Guinsoo's favor...

Guinsoo was greatly despised by the community and the balance issues were horrible(DEATH WARD RIKI FTW??!?!).
This never changed during his reign. I'm not saying Guinsoo was "bad", Guinsoo is extremely important to MOBA history, but the video presents him like some adored genius that revolutionized the map.

Icefrog was the one that accomplished this. I also noticed that the clips are in poor chronological order. Icefrog era champions are displayed during the Guinsoo narration.

7:38 is wrong as well, Guinsoo never gave control to Icefrog, he gave it to Syllable, Syllable gave it to Icefrog... etc etc, the video is very inaccurate, but it'll be popular as it is produced by Machinima, it makes me incredibly angry to see such garbage becoming popular overnight...

A friend of mine and Scarlena recently made a video about it.

There was a great deal of time spent doing research for it, that's why it infuriates me so much that Machinima slapped together some nonsense and called it a day. It barely talks about Eul, Icefrog or even the pre-history, downplaying all three , the machinima video is basically a huge (inaccurate) commercial for Riot/Steve Feak.

Wikipedia has almost zero information on the history of MOBA.

What little it has is biased and inaccurate.

It all began with Aeon of Strife.
If you think DotA-or MOBA- games begin with guinsoo, you're totally wrong on all aspects.
Do you know Eul?
