Riot Games has now released a documentary titled 'DRX The Rise' celebrating this Cinderella story.

A fourth-seed team had never won League of Legends Worlds but in 2022, Korean team DRX came along and rewrote League of Legends Esports history by lifting the coveted Summoner's Cup and completing its underdog story. DRX took on tournament favorites T1 in the grand finals of Worlds 2022 and the best-of-five (BO5) series went the full length. DRX’s Cinderella Story pushed fans into tears and the community was sincerely happy for the underdogs to win the championship. Riot Games has now released a documentary titled ‘DRX The Rise’ capturing all the behind-the-scenes action from DRX’s historic run at Worlds 2022.

Here’s everything you need to know about ‘DRX The Rise’ documentary.

Where to watch the DRX Worlds 2022 Documentary?

Riot Games described the DRX Worlds 2022 documentary as a journey from underdogs to defeating the game's greatest teams to become World Champions of League of Legends Esports. It said, "Entering Worlds 2022, nobody expected Deft and DRX to make it past the Play-In stage. However, their past record would not keep the determined LCK team from hoping for victory and enjoying themselves along the way."

The 'DRX The Rise' documentary is presented by Red Bull Media House in partnership with Riot Games.

Fans can watch the DRX documentary on YouTube for free on the LoL Esports channel and relive the magic once again but at a closer proximity this time.

DRX The Rise is an hour-long documentary that takes the audience on a journey documenting DRX's run through Worlds 2022. It also features interviews with the players of DRX and perfectly showcases glimpses from the event and the team's matches to set the tone.

Describing DRX's run, a fan commented, "Watching this in real time as it unfolded was something else. I literally couldn't believe and say what you will about the Worlds theme song 'Star Walking' but it fits their run to the top."

The Worlds 2022 final will go down as one of the most hyped series ever as it was centered around two historic players: Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok and Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu. Riot Games perfectly captured their schoolmates-to-opponents arc and showcased how Deft longed for his time in the spotlight silently.

However, after beating T1 in the final game, Deft finally achieved the highest honor of being called a World champion, after fighting hard for ten long years.

Currently, DRX is placed 7th in the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Summer 2023. However, it is to be noted that the core members of DRX parted ways shortly after Worlds 2022. Only its support player Cho "BeryL" Geon-hee stayed on. Deft signed with Dplus Kia and Hwang "Kingen" Seong-hoon and Kim "Zeka" Geon-woo moved on to Hanwha Life Esports. Meanwhile, jungler Hong "Pyosik" Chang-hyeon took the ticket to the North American league where he currently plays for Team Liquid.
