The League of Legends pro Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin wrecked another player during one of his recent live-streaming sessions. That’s not really anything remarkable to see, coming from a pro of Piglet’s stature. What is hilarious and awesome about the play is his little victory dance after he’s finished wrecking. »
This is Burgergot. He’s a fan-made alternate skin concept for the great but oft-under-appreciated League of Legends champion: the big fat crab king Urgot. »
Something weird happened last night in League of Legends, something that’s never happened before in the ludicrously popular game’s 6-year history: a character died. Like, actually died. In the story. And at least for now, in the game too. Lore is OP. »
If MOBA players had meetings similar to the AA, I could imagine people introducing themselves by saying, “Hi, I’m PufferMan388, I’m a toxic mid main, and I hate the cancer fish known as Fizz.” Or perhaps, “I’m DrunkmasterDave, I live in top lane, and I am on a crusade to take down the satanic menace known as Teemo.”
Blizzard has benched the best assassin in its up-and-coming MOBA Heroes of the Storm, banning StarCraft star Zeratul from use in the game’s first real round of professional tournaments for the indefinite future.
Despite being a very fun game, there are many, many things in League of Legends that desperately need to be fixed, improved upon, or added in the first place. A key figure at League’s development studio Riot wants the game’s tens of millions of fans to know that delays for crucial improvements aren’t the result of… »
Changing a playable character in League of Legends runs the risk of offending at least part of the online multiplayer game’s tens of millions of players. But I’m not sure development studio Riot Games could’ve predicted what set off fans this week: a slight alteration to a woman’s cheekbones. Oh, and her bangs.
Maybe I should be embarrassed to admit this, but I’ve played more than 150 Heroes of the Storm games as Zeratul and it somehow never occurred to me during those many, many hours spent with the badass StarCraft II assassin that I could save my team from the outermost brink of defeat. Or at least in this way. »
Oh man. I bet these two League of Legends players thought they were being so clever, teaming up at the very beginning of the match to jump into top lane and surprise their opponent who was all alone up there.
It takes a lot for Riot to put even part of its hugely popular multiplayer game League of Legends on hold, but tonight the developer faced a technical problem it wasn’t able to promptly handle. A bug affecting every playable character in League of Legends’ ginormous champion pool began to surface in the game earlier… »
League of Legends’ giant catfish champion Tahm Kench brought a powerful new ability into the game when arrived last week: with or without his teammate’s permission, the guy can swallow an ally champ whole and carry them around in his belly for a few seconds. You can probably see where this is going. »
Heroes of the Storm put out its hero spotlight for the soon-to-be-released character King Leoric last night, giving a bit more detail on how his ridiculous-sounding “undying” trait will work. This guy never has to leave a battle—even if he gets killed! That’s gonna take some getting used to. »
When talking about MOBAs, gamers often focus on the toxic elements of their culture. Too rarely do we look at their opposite: the people who are just plain nice. I met one such player last night in Heroes of the Storm, and was so taken aback by his good manners and civility that I feel the need to honor him. »
A gigantic man-eating catfish arrived in League of Legends yesterday. His name is Tahm Kench, AKA “The River King.” And the newly-minted champion seems pretty freaking awesome so far. »
