Animated Loading Screens hinted?

Thoughts?

Counter arguments:

1.It wouldn't effect your toaster PC teammates because it's a separate loading element that'd most likely be pre-loaded.

2.Obviously it's going to be able to be toggled.

Why would you not provide source?

Hmmm. Perhaps I thought too many people already talked about it. Wanted to be subtle for a potentially monotonous subject.

Source: The 2014 Worlds video when the original character sits at his computer. You can see the loading screen with animated pictures.

My thought is that it's a strong hint because of how brief the scene was and it certainly wasn't a very necessary one of just him cracking his knuckles.

It's gotta mean something. As a professional animator, it would be a bit overkill to animate the loading screen for no reason since it's literally there for like 1-2 seconds and the actual loading screen in the game is just still images.

Unless you had a lot of extra time to animate that shot and just wanted to screw with people lol.

It's an animation, so they animated things. I don't really consider this a hint at animated loading screens, especially when there's so many people who play on toasters.

I imagine Riots alot like Blizzard, they wan't to keep this game as less CPU/RAM/GPU intensive as possible so that they can secure a wider audience.

All the toaster kids would cry that they're freezing at the loading screen, and that might hurt Riots chances of said kids stealing their mothers credit cards to purchase skins.

It would be nice, but I don't see it happening.

They made one of the players a summoner.
Think they just took a lot of liberties.
