You have to root for a team you know, whether it's the players/race/background/etc... To root for them any other wise just seems kind of pointless. It isn't that you are rooting for anyone but that you just enjoy watching teams play.

I root for IdrA's team.

I root for teams based on playstyle. I don't really care who's winning tournaments, I care who's making the game interesting.

To this end, Najin Sword is my favorite team.
League of Legends - Zantoma
PSO2 JP - Rasmolov @ Ship 10

I like CLG b/c of the people. I dont care if they suck, maybe they will get better... If they do, ill be happy, but im not really hopeful.

I just like their personalities I guess.

This is why I was glad they kicked out Voyboy, and I was sad Locodoco left... I liked loco, but hated voy.

You have to root for a team you know

Gonna have to strongly disagree. There are two teams each game. I root for whoever has a more interesting composition. I couldn't care less about anyone in high-level League gaming at the moment, so interesting team compositions are the only thing that bring me to streams, and even then that's only on occasion.

I have player loyalties more than team loyalties.

Nyjacky was the first streamer I watched with any regularity, so I really like to see Curse win.

Saint was the first jungle that I saw really single handedly carry a game from the jungle (back when he was on CLG and Shyvana was a queen of pro games). So again, I like to see Curse win.

I enjoy Doublelift's drama and his cocky play style when he gets fed, so I like for CLG to do well.

Other players I like to see do well are Stanley, Scarra, and Shy.
