There was actually a computer game that helped get me interested in politics and I think it was called President Elect and basically you were a candidate for President. Yeah it was a fun game, I mean you tried to win. You not only learned the lingo of politics, but like, yeah you just try to actually win the election by deciding how you make your decisions
on how to campaign.

I’m Jared Polis, I am a member of the United States House of Representatives from the Second Congressional District of Colorado, and I main Maokai. I’ve been a gamer pretty much as long as I can remember.
After a long day, you know of fighting in politics or whatever, gaming is great. Nothing else is really on your mind, it’s just a great way to kind of not have to focus on the fights of the day and get a balance in your life.
Well when you win it’s just a great feeling. It’s like passing a bill or making a sale in business. Likewise, when we lose, especially Marlon gets a little upset for a while.
It’s not just me.
Darn it, they just took bot.
There’s just random constituents and others I met and they always ask, what’s your – what’s your summoner name? And they get a huge kick out of it that they played with their Congressman.
Well my parents would always say, if you don’t like something, change it. Well I had been very successful in business in my 20’s and I found myself wanting to give back to the community and for me that was not just, make more money if you don’t need it, but focus on trying to change the world.
When I first got elected to Congress it was a real crazy experience, I mean really all of a sudden you’re yielding to people on the floor, you’re introducing bills and you have the same authority as somebody that has been there for 20 or 30 years, the same vote.
You experience politics in a League of Legends game. I mean the dynamic between players in terms of who’s going where, how you decide on it, do you group up in the middle, when do you stop laning, all of those types of decisions, which everybody who has played League of Legends has seen work really well…

That’s going to be a Quadra Kill, can he get the Penta Kill?… One on one, it’s going to be the Penta Kill!
And also have seen it completely fall apart…
No! He died…
That’s only five people, but you have 435 in the United States House of Representatives trying to get along, but you do have to have your role. Lets see, I would say I’m probably something of a jungler, because I get to be involved with lot’s of different bills in lots of different areas and I kind of swoop in to gank them on different things.
I think one of the great things is when you can bring together the entire League of Legends community around something, because it’s a very diverse
community, it has it’s in-fighting, but when there is an issue that affects everybody, like SOPA and PIPA, it brought the entire community, even trolls and haters, everybody kind of together around making sure that these bad bills didn’t pass.
SOPA and PIPA
SOPA and PIPA
Stop online piracy act.
The protect I.P. act.
SOPA and PIPA directly threaten the very internet that has brought humanity great prosperity and greater peace.
This was kind of a internet censorship type law, which really would have prevented League of Legends from even offering some of the characters they offered, not to mention stifling some of the discussions on the boards.
I have many concerns with this bill, including a overly broad definition of infringement.
I mean if SOPA and PIPA had passed, you might’ve seen the League of Legends community and forum disabled. First of all, I went on the forum,
which was exciting and many of the people calling in to their members of Congress were League of Legends players. There’s an internet day where sites went dark, wikipedia among others.
League of Legends players in the community played a role in writing in and calling in to their members of Congress to help defeat SOPA and PIPA.
The League of Legends community should not give up just by defeating the SOPA and PIPA. We are capable of whatever we put our minds to collectively, so whatever can invoke passions and unite the League of
Legends community will get done in this world.
I represent the Second Congressional District of Colorado…
“Lets do it.” “Nice ultimate.”

But I also to be somebody that the community of League of Legends players across the country and the world can turn to as a person in Congress that understands that experience and wants to protect it and is very much a part of that community.
