Breaking those character stereo types

So most recently in ranked I have been breaking character stereotypes by playing a wide variety of champions where they dont belong. For example I have been playing a lot of Zac mid and even most recently I have started doing Skarner and Irelia. Although I do get some flak for playing the characters outside of their "roles" I do relatively well with most of my games coming out as wins. I also almost always get the other teams comments of "Skarner mid? wtf?" or "Oh a zac mid I have this easy". The other team then makes a lot of mistakes when trying to do stuff because they think they have it made and then usually panic and flounder when they realize its not gonna be all daisies and sunshine. For example, Ill push while playing Zac really hard and instead of ganking intelligently most players just meander out into the lane to try and gank in which i just slingshot back to the turret. It astounds me how overconfident people are. So for you summoners out there who decide to read this, try …

New ways of punishment

Hello everyone!

So I played a pvp match recently, and wanted to honor our Riven. She took on a role of ajungler (was supposed to go top), when 5th member locked his Wukong and called top and did not communicate whatsoever since then. She did very well.

But after the mid game, she started to thras-talk to our team and enemy team as well. called us all nabs, idiots, feeders and that she could win that match alone. True, our enemy team was weak, but still, she has no right to say all that stuff.

In post-game lobby I talked to her a bit, just to find out she was already punished twice for ***** talking, and lost 400 honor points. But she didn't care anyway.

THE SUMMARY



There are 3 kinds of people:
  • The ones, that will improve their behaviour after the warning/time ban
  • The ones, who don't care about warnings and a few days off LoL
  • The ones, that will be trolling no matter what, until perma-banned

And since you can't do much about the third bunch, I gave it a thought and came up wi…

PLATINUUUUM!

Only took me like four times in promo and managed to do it like 8 days too late to get the banner. Bleh.
I don't think I had this bad luck even when I was trying to get out of Silver I. I mean I was promos about 5 times back then too, but this time I lost two full promos (all 3 games in a row :D) then lost a couple more and ended up at 0 points. Then climbed back again twice until I finally made it through with a full AP Singed top lane who thought it was cool to let Irelia free farm for 20 minutes, because he was afk for the first 5 minutes.

Now I can't verify myself for some reason (bug with Mobafire?) but not like it matters, I don't get to brag with my accomplishes for much longer since reset happens and Season 4 comes. Well, at least I saw Platinum (MY BF SHOULD BE SO PROUD OF ME NOW!), but all I really wanted was the banner <.< Platinum isn't that much different from gold anyway at least how much I've seen it, but I think it was a really long way to climb from Silver III to wh…

[S4 1] Top Facts: Trinkets and Warding

Hello everyone I am back =D Been busy with college stuff and have not had much time to play LoL, let alone write blogs on it. With my top lane guide in need of a rehaul and S4 just around the corner I figure its time for a new blog series on S4 top lane. =)

Note: The information this blog is based off of is PBE and is subject to change. If at anytime RIOT makes a major change that will affect what I have written here I will go change it.

Introduction:


With season 4 Riot is making HUGE changes to the vision game. As a top laner the majority of these changes will not be affecting our laning phase. The big change that will be present in top lane will be the new addition of trinkets.

Whats a Trinket?:


Trinkets are new items that can be purchased for FREE at the start of the game. Trinkets have their own slot in your inventory so can still be bought and used when you have 6 items. Trinkets cannot be used until 1:30 meaning they cannot be used for level 1 jungle invades. Also you c…

Blog Entry #3

Ok so I have been in B5 Hell for quite some time...mainly due to loss and gain of points, getting to a promo and then back down to last spot. I think that from my personal experience..you are ALWAYS going to have THOSE type of people who will troll your game given they don't get the role they spam out, dumbass teammates that seem cool at first then talk **** the entire game pointing out everyones mistakes but their own..OR and in my case HONESTLY very rarely you end up screwing up too much to the point of no return. Now the best thing to do is to obviously skill yourself in EVERY role so even if you get last pick AND you WILL..especially in B5 Hell..you can still give your team a fighting chance in each game. I am 29 years old..so I usually stay pretty damn quiet in almost all games I get into give or take some that I make little comments here and there..BUT you CANNOT do ANYTHING about the people you play with...its a FTP game and there are A **** TON of kids between the ages of 12-20…

Setting your sights too high, how to avoid falling down

Hey guys, shuru here. I recently came back to league and this website, and was thinking a lot about why I quit league, and why I have depression strikes when I watch pros in many games.

In a game like LoL, we have out goals, we have our expectations, and we have our eventual wants and needs. I'm a gamer at heart, beyond beliefs, I've gone pro in a few games (namely smaller games off of the radar), and I've been on PvP leaderboards for multiple MMOs. What does that mean to any of you? I've been up there, I've had pro plays, and so on in many games.

Not in LoL. I've had decent play, I've had good play, but I'm not that great of a player. Why does that bother me so much? I used to ask myself that question a lot, and I came down to this conclusion.

I had high standards



What does that mean? for the game? LoL is great right? well yeah, it is a good game. But that sentence is about me. I played League for about a year before deciding I wanted to go for broke, go as high as I could. I didn…

For guide writers and critics

Everyone, chillax.



There seems to be some confusion about proper activities and behaviors when it comes to guide writing and critique. I'm going to lay it all out so that we can all come to an understanding about some do's and don'ts. If you want, you can paste this blog whenever things get a bit heated in a guides' comments section.

For the guide writers:
Submitting your thoughts and ideas to a website can be enriching, informative, and fun. Everyone's ideas are welcome in our open forum. With that being said, everyone's ideas are subject to the same scrutiny and examination. We appreciate you taking time out of your life to take time and put your thoughts on this website for no compensation. Everyone wins!

However, be aware that when building a champion, there are very few "right" answers. Some champions build paths are extremely narrow (see Shen top). If you choose to express the validity of a build that doesn't fall within these answers (outside of the meta) then that's ok! The…
