Nhan-Fiction Note: I wrote this in terms of opinions of how this character plays on Summoner’s Rift.
There was a point where I ripped on Fiora for being a trashy champion, and then something clicked with Fiora to the point where she became one of my favorite characters in the entire game.
Go figure. It is funny how some things work out sometimes.
I consider Fiora to be my No. 1 top laner for my Fantastic 15. I have played a lot of Fiora games lately, and there is something about her as a character that appeals to me for some reason. Despite how some people would argue, Fiora is quite frankly not that good of a champion. Other champions do her job and role much better.
She does not bring much to the table aside from damage for your team’s composition. She runs into a lot of match-up problems for top lane (like, I mean a lot of standard top laners have a natural edge over her). She is extremely easy to counter-build against …
The list of flaws for Fiora stretches on and on, but I still find myself using this darling duelist for my top lane matches whenever I can.
Perhaps I just really adore the fake French accent?
Special thanks to k1lleet for drawing an alternate pose for Hextech Sylphie.
Wow, just wow! Many thanks to ~LittleDarkDragon for drawing this comic of Kiya. This comic uses the older design of Kiya, but I still really like how creative the final piece turned out. Also, Warwick as a newscaster?! Whodathunkit?
There is a key method when you want to win at “League of Legends,” and this is to snowball.
Snowballing refers to building up your character’s in-game strength to the point where you can overwhelm your opponents. In LoL, this method is accomplished through racking up gold and then using this money to purchase power through items.
All of it is rather linear if you think about it.
Life is full of surprises. “League of Legends” is no different in this regard. Every time you queue up and brace yourself for a match, you never quite know how things will pan out. Sure, in a perfect world, every queue is going to be full of the nicest people possible, every player is competent and everyone will all gel together that it becomes an enjoyable experience no matter what. However, this is why games are not played on paper.
In reality, the only thing you can count on is a dependable thing called uncertainty. No matter how much you want to predict the future, you never will know for sure unless you let things play out. It’s why we take risks as humans to let destiny run its course. It’s the only real way to live, isn’t it?
I’ve been noticing in my matches of “League of Legends” that a particular scenario keeps popping up, one of which I believe should have a new phrase coined just because of how common it is.
We all have it happen to us in any given game of LoL from time to time. Something bad/awkward occurs, and then you are met with …
… THE ELLIPSIS OF WHAT THE (HECK) WAS THAT?!
The “…” says a lot without saying much at all.
“League of Legends” brings out the worst in people, especially when Elo is on the line in solo queue. I have had my share of really “painful” moments where I wondered if I was the same person after a particularly agonizing ranked match. Though many discouraging and toxic players exist in these kind of games, I believe there are those who become ideal “beacons” who rub off good qualities that make their teammates perform better.
