League Of Legends Players Are Rebelling Against Overpriced Stuff

League of Legends changes in big ways with alarming frequency. The game’s tens of millions of players have learned to never be shy about letting Riot know they don’t like something, therefore—usually by writing a strongly-worded forum post.

Now This Is How You Steal The Other Team's Baron In League Of Legends

Killing Baron Nashor in League of Legends grants a number of highly valuable rewards that’ll help carry a team to victory. But doing so is risky.

One Of League Of Legends' Oldest Champions Just Got A Surprise Makeover

League of Legends has been such a popular online game for so long that its developer has had to treat updating it the way New York City handles its subway system: bits and pieces might be altered in tiny increments, but the overarching system never truly stops moving.

It Took A League Player Exactly 3,439,140 Mouse Clicks To Reach Diamond

Diamond isn’t the highest level one can achieve when playing League of Legends’ fiercely competitive ranked mode. But it’s one of the highest. Anyone who climbs that high has to put in some serious work into League. More than 3 years and 3 million mouse-clicks’ worth, according to one player’s recent measurement.

For The First Time, A Banned League Of Legends Pro Gets Second Chance

Last night, Riot put out an update about the status of several high-profile League of Legends players who’ve been suspended or banned from the game due to their toxic behavior.

Your League Of Legends Plays Aren't Always As Awesome As You Remember

You might feel like a total badass for the way you held down your lane against three—three!—enemy champions in that last game of League of Legends. But let's all be thankful that the game doesn't automatically record everything. Because stuff rarely looks as graceful as we remember it. » 3/30/15 12:15pm 3/30/15 12:15pm

The Invisible League Of Legends Attack Bug Riot Can't Seem To Resolve

Bugs and glitches are an unfortunate fact of life that usually just have to be tolerated when playing a game as hugely popular as League of Legends. The story of one such bug that's teetered between irritating and insufferable got a lot more interesting this week after a player figured out how to reproduce it. » 3/27/15 4:50pm 3/27/15 4:50pm

One Small Thing I Love About Heroes Of The Storm

I recently added Heroes of the Storm to the growing pile of MOBAs that I've become hopelessly addicted to. And while I find the characters in Blizzard's new game lacking in some ways (like their skins), one thing really impresses me about it in comparison to League of Legends: the way the heroes talk to one another. » 3/23/15 4:30pm 3/23/15 4:30pm

One Of League Of Legends' Worst Champions Made A Surprising Comeback

One of this past weekend's League of Legends championship series games shocked fans thanks to the arrival of a hero character who hasn't shown his hideously mutated face in the eSports scene in quite some time: Urgot.

This League of Legends Mod For Smash Bros. Will Never Be Played

In their free time, some Riot developers made a Smash Bros. mod that League of Legends-ified the game. Sadly, Super League Bros. (as I like to call it) will most likely never see the light of day since Riot said it was "just for fun." At least we can gaze upon some fuzzy pictures and dream of what could have been. » 3/20/15 12:30pm 3/20/15 12:30pm
