What Is Fugitive Gaming & Who Is its Captain Creamcheese?
Riot Games joined hands With Paramount+ and released a new League of Legends series titled “Players” that premiered on 16th June. Players is a League of Legends mockumentary and is a “comedic docu-style series exploring the world of Esports” through a fictional North American League of Legends team in pursuit of the championship. This mockumentary is all about Fugitive Gaming, the fictional team, that competes in the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS). The show revolves around two major stars, Fugitive Gaming’s 27-year-old leader Creamcheese and new member Organizm, a 17-year-old League of Legends prodigy.
After years of falling short at the last hurdle and suffering heartbreak, Fugitive Gaming is after its first LCS title. However, Creamcheese and Organizm must put their egos aside and work together for that to happen.
Fugitive Gaming feels real in Players
There is no doubt that Players is set in a fictional world and features a fictional esports team called Fugitive Gaming. The team competes in different matches that are cast by actual LCS casters and the players are also interviewed by actual LCS personalities for a documentary about Fugitive Gaming. League of Legends fans will recognize cameos from Joshua “Jatt” Leesman and Indiana “Froskurinn” Black and also popular stars like William "scarra" Li and Lily “Lilypichu” Ki.
The cast of Fugitive Gaming in Players is a mix of actors and real-life esports players. They are:
Organizm - Misha Brooks (Actor)
Creamcheese - Da'Jour Jones (Actor)
Nightfall - Jung "Youngbin" Young-bin (former League of Legends pro player)
Bap - Noh “Arrow” Dong-hyeon (former League of Legends pro)
BGOLBKTOFWTR - Michael "Miko" Ahn (League of Legends coach)
Who is Creamcheese in the show?
In the show, Creamcheese is considered a veteran of the League of Legends pro scene and along with the rest of the Fugitives, he embodies the old-school “bad boy” culture of esports. The tagline of the show is aptly titled, “A Season with the Bad Boys of Gaming.”
In the trailer, Creamcheese gloats about his League of Legends career. He says, “I’m proud of my legacy.” He goes on to add that he’s one of the best players there is and that he’s played in huge arenas. He also shows off that he bought a Porsche.
The trailer also shows Creamcheese throwing temper tantrums and feeling the pressure of having to deliver the results and win the LCS trophy with Fugitive Gaming, especially with Organizm on the cusp of overshadowing him. He says, “I don’t have too much time left.”
CBS produced the series in association with Funny or Die and Riot Games, along with Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda as executive producers. Notably, Perrault and Yacenda are the two behind American Vandal, a Netflix mockumentary on true-crime documentaries.
