The LCS is here but…

The LCS, the World Championship, Worlds, whatever you want to call it, the biggest League of Legends tournament, featuring the best teams across the planet, is here. Well, actually, it’s here, on the League of Legends E-Sports website, but I am sure you blog-goers would understand. Unfortunately, due to my duties in Demacia and on the Fields of Justice, I was actually late to make this announcement. There is a problem though. I wonder how much of the community actually cares? Of course, the Asian communities almost certainly care. E-sports is a steadily growing phenomenon, and some places like South… [Continue Reading]

The Hammer of Change draws closer…

Greetings citizens. I come to you with glum news. It seems as though the Riot Summoners have chosen me to be sacrificed to the Lords of Balance. The Hammer of Change is near, hovering above me dangerously, with a hideous squint in its bearer’s eyes. Yes, you heard me correctly, I am about to be nerfed into the ground. Or possibly not. You see, Riot has no idea what to do with one of the faces of League of Legends. As I stand, I am a glorious tank. I will soak up all the damage, spin around a bit, make… [Continue Reading]

League of Legends needs a Sandbox. But we’re not getting one.

On August 5th, Riot games announced that they won’t ever be making a sandbox mode in which you can test various aspects of League of Legends.¬†Which is a very stupid thing to say. Much of the community, not to mention many of us Champions, are up in arms about it. A sandbox has been one of the most requested features that players have been asking for for years (after a replay feature, which is also not happening). But while we were given a somewhat suitable explanation as to why, their reasoning for not wanting to build a sandbox was insulting.… [Continue Reading]

Plagued by Chromas

While all you Team Fortress mercenaries complain about the appearance of your so-called Decorated Weapons, which appear to come in a billion randomized styles based on weapon collection, weapon rarity, weapon pattern and weapon rare, with a smaller chance of being strange or unusual for two out of four collections, us champions have been plagued by something far, far worse. I am talking about Chroma Packs, the newest paid for feature to pester the League of Legends with its presence. The idea of a Chroma Pack is incredibly simple, especially compared to the Weapon Retexture Project that appears to be… [Continue Reading]

Small crawling things that climb into buildings and explode…

Good day, citizens! It is I, Garen, the Might of Demacia. I have returned to inform you all of an up and coming threat that has somehow slipped through the cracks of space and time and is now attacking people’s turrets! But do not fear, I have located the source of this vile scourge – this threat has sneaked in via the Void, the same hideous place were the horrible being known as Vel’Koz was born. Oh and the other hideous Void beings. And Kog’Maw. For some reason, my sister seems to think that hideous, drooling, acid-spitting monster is cute.… [Continue Reading]

Scout and Tracer, there’s a new annoying speedster around…

Good day, everyone! The Might of Demacia is here once more to bring some good, or maybe bad news! This week, or last week, or maybe the week before, a new champion was announced, who will soon be joining the League of Legends! Yes, you heard me, another one. This one though is just what the doctor ordered, assuming the doctor wanted an annoying little time-travelling cocky bastard. The new champion is Ekko, currently dubbed as The Boy Who Shattered Time. Not nearly as impressive as The Might of Demacia. He is a young speedster mage assassin champion. He hails… [Continue Reading]

Assassinating and being hard to kill…

Power in TF2 comes from killing people. You kill your enemies then push forward. But there will always be someone waiting in the shadows to push against you. An Engineer. A Medic with Uber. A Sniper. A camping Heavy. A Demoman and his stickies. You need to take them out, but can’t afford to split up your team and waste men. How? Assassins. Alternatively, you need to quickly take out that Carry? Kill them nice and fast before they ace your team? There’s an answer for that too. Assassins. Ass-ass-ins, if you are that way inclined. What is an assassin?… [Continue Reading]
