For the Swarm

Nhan-Fiction Note: The Zerg have always been my favorite race in the StarCraft universe, despite the fact I don’t particularly like bugs all that much in real life. FOR THE SWARM!

Snowballing

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.

Toward the Top Part 4

I have started to do my seeding games for “League of Legends.” Initially, I have fared relatively well by winning six of my eight games so far, which is pretty solid considering I have two more seeding matches left. I feel like a lot of my preparation has paid off so far.

Dependable Uncertainty

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?

Fantastic 15

When it comes to “League of Legends,” people always talk about who they “main,” as in who they consider as the characters they specialize in when it comes to champion picks. As I have become better at the game, I can definitely cover a lot more ground as far as the champion roles go. But if I had to narrow down the list for each role down to just three choices, there would certainly be some tough decisions.

Nonetheless, I have managed to create a list of who I think are my main champs for each given role.

Such a Riot

It’s such a great feeling when you come across that one thing that just makes your day.

So I was checking my e-mail inbox and came across this …

Riot E-mail

I opened it right away and found a very pleasant message from Riot Games.

Oversight

All about the warding … no matter what. :O

I consider support as my best role in “League of Legends.” I have a lot of pride with my support playing style, and I like to think my skills are pretty strong on any good day. Despite it being the most unpopular role by far (it is honestly a mini-game in every queue not to be left with the support hot potato), I think the people who “don’t get” support overlook some key aspects about the position.

While trying to put together rough drafts for a fan-made champion I am trying to remake, I began to make a list of what a good support player needed to do so they could be considered competent and helpful for their teammates.

At the end of the day, I concluded that wards were ultimately the most important thing a support player needed to focus on throughout the course of a given LoL match.
