League Of Legends Will Hide 'Eye Candy' For Serious Players

League of Legends players take the game seriously. Super seriously. So seriously that those pesky pretty little things on the Summoner’s Rift map like butterflies and dragonflies start to look like serious eyesores that get in the way of winning. I mean: you can’t even attack them! But Riot can. » 5/18/15 11:46am Monday 11:46am

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.

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.

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 Of League Of Legends' Worst Champions Made A Surprising Comeback

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

How One League Of Legends Champion Has Changed Over Five Years

You know what people say when admiring the glory of real-world teenagers: "They grow up so fast." The same goes for League of Legends characters. You just have to replace "grow up so fast" with "received a number of small but not insignificant changes over the course of many, many patches." My, how time flies! » 3/18/15 1:30pm 3/18/15 1:30pm

Once Again, The Story Behind League of Legends' Newest Hero Is Nonsense

Riot released an animated short yesterday that gives a backstory for The Bard, League of Legends' newest incoming champion. Like all things League, the film is very cool. So cool, in fact, that you might find yourself thinking: "Hey, I bet this game has a killer story!" But what is that story? I have no fucking clue. » 3/06/15 12:50pm 3/06/15 12:50pm
