Star Walking, the song of Worlds 2022, was criticized by several personalities in the League of Legends community.
StarWalking It’s the Lil Nas X song that will decorate Worlds 2022, the most important League of Legends tournament of the season. The World Cup anthem always generates a lot of expectations in the community, since throughout history there were several themes that remained in the hearts of lolera fans.
In this case, Star Walking was not well received by many fans and was criticized by industry personalities. Is this the worst anthem in the history of Worlds?
«The Worlds song is weak. Too slow and no hype,” he tweeted. Marc Robert “Caedrel” Lamontformer LEC player and analyst. Marcin “Jankos” Jankowskii, the best jungler in Western history who will play the tournament with G2 Esports, also showed his discontent. “This year’s Worlds song didn’t move me as much as usual,” said the Pole.

Adam “LEADER” Ilyasov, a former Team Vitality mid laner, was one of those who opened the discussion. “Possibly the worst Worlds song so far.” he commented she.
It’s just that it’s hard to live up to the great anthems of history, like Warriors (Imagine Dragons) from Worlds 2014 or Rise (ft. The Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive) from Worlds 2018, which were impregnated in the collective unconscious of fans.
Whether or not Star Walking is the worst song in the history of the League of Legends World Cups, is left to the subjective consideration of each one. But there is something that seems like a trend in most listeners: the song has the feeling of being slow. “Guys just play the Worlds 2022 song at 1.25 speed on Youtube and it’s great,” he wrote. Nick “LS” De Cesare, the streamer and former Cloud9 head coach, on Twitter. This concept of speeding up the song to make it sound better became a community meme to make fun of the anthem.
Will Star Walking gain strength over time or will it go down in history as one of the worst Worlds songs?
