MOBAFire and League of Legends News posted by various authors among the MOBAFire community.
Just over a month ago we were contacted by a Sophomore at Virginia Tech by the name of Andy who is studying Computer Science and Mathematics and of course spends much of his spare time on the battlefield.
Andy and his colleagues (team members) all belong to the AASU (Asian American Student Union) and GGVT (Gamers Group of Virgina Tech) and through a joint venture between these two organizations, organized a week long League of Legends tournament where only students of the University were invited to participate.
My name’s Andy Hsu and I am currently a sophomore at Virginia Tech studying Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. Starting on Monday, March 12th my friends and I will be entering our university’s League of Legends week-long tournament, dubbed appropriately as the League of Hokies tournament. It is a joint tournament being held by the Virginia Tech Asian American Student Union (AASU) and Gamer’s Group at Virginia Tech (GGVT). The tournament itself is for students attending Virginia Tech only, however many teams have surfaced on campus due to the popularity of League of Legends on our campus. All of the tournament’s proceeds go towards the top three team’s charity of choice, so it has sprung forth a lot of participation by even newcomers to the game for such a great cause.
MOBAFire has graciously taken up my team, WreQrew (pronounced wreck crew), and become our primary sponsor for this tournament. They have also agreed to drop an additional $250 to the tournament winner’s charity on top of the winnings. This means a great deal for us for this event marks the breakthrough of multiple firsts for our campus. It will be the first joint charity tournament held by AASU and GGVT, as well as our team being the first sponsored gaming team on campus and first sponsored gaming event. We are very grateful for MOBAFire extending their resources to us and making this event an even larger success than we could ever hope for.
Hundreds of students came to watch and cheer for their favorites as the tournament progressed from 9 teams until the winning team: VT DFOP (Summoners: Furyn, Rekeri, Tiumus, Reed07 and IAmTheLemon) were crowned victorious. The guys were proud to contribute their donations to their favorite charity "Sharsheret", a national not-for-profit organization bringing support to young women and their families, facing breast cancer.
We are equally honored to contribute to this cause and are extremely proud of WreQrew for achieving 2nd place overall.
Congratulations to Andy and Team WreQrew for your entrepreneurial spirit and your philanthropic endeavor. Thank you for inviting MOBAFire to be a part of this story. Great job guys!

Lulu, the Fae Sorceress, has frolicked into the League of Legends. With her fae companion Pix in tow, Lulu is capable of boosting her allies while disrupting the enemy team on the Fields of Justice. For her ultimate, Lulu empowers an ally, increasing their survivability and granting them with an aura that slows enemies while they lead the charge!
If you think that yordles should come sugarcoated, you’re sure to find Bittersweet Lulu and her cupcake themed Whimsy spell positively irresistible. If, on the other hand, you think that everything capricious should come doubled up with the mischievous side, you’ll be pleased to find that out that Wicked Lulu and her black cat polymorph are here to keep you cackling.
Bittersweet Lulu Bundle
For those of you with a decadent, indulgent streak, you can snatch up a sweet deal on Bittersweet Lulu when you purchase the skin and champion together in the Bittersweet Lulu bundle.
- Lulu Champion + Bittersweet Lulu (Normally 1950 RP) will be only 1462 RP
Lulu Double Bundle
If you prefer to take your sweetness with a bit of an edge, however, one skin may not be enough. For those of you with a truly insatiable zeal for fantastical fae creatures, we’ve assembled the Lulu Double Bundle!
- Lulu Champion + Bittersweet Lulu + Wicked Lulu (Normally 2925 RP) will be only 1950 RP
As with all our champion bundles, these fantastic deals will be taking their tomfoolery back to the fae lands at the end of the weekend following the patch. Don’t let yourself be the only kid without a fairy!
We’ll see you on the Fields of Justice, summoners!
