  • “Honestly, Riot should just rename the GODS music video to ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ with the way they animated this.”
  • “The new GODS music video is a masterpiece. It reminds me so much of RISE because, like how they showcased Ambition, Deft’s story from being in the same school as Faker to beating him and his former teammate Keria to be a World’s Champion was just so impactful.”
  • “So the music video is all about’s Deft’s journey for his whole career. I’m so happy Deft won the championship last year even if T1 has been my team since 2013. He truly deserved it the scene where Keria’s Braum shielding Deft tho.. that was so dramatic.”
  • “Just watched the GODS music video and cried, watching Deft’s journey to winning a world championship really hits deep, I’ll never be over that drx run from last year.”
