I haven't played since last year, and never very seriously but you're right about the community, it's not the best around. I tend to go back and play a few games from time to time, but it just doesn't keep my interest anymore. I think I mentioned it somewhere earlier in the thread, but Xin and Blitz were who I enjoyed playing most. I got decent with Zac, Heimerdinger, and a few others though. 

 

I kind of played seriously for a while. Got really into it at a point, played almost daily, but that did not last for long. The community was the thing which seriously put me off. I did like Blitz a lot, as a support, though. I also thought it was quite funny that, whenever I had a really bad game and missed most of my hooks, if I land one really good hook at the end, everyone forgets all the bad stuff I've done. I have played Heimerdinger once or twice, not that much, but I did have a lot of fun with him.

 

And to be honest, playing league just doesn't keep my interest anymore either. Just can't bring myself to take it seriously now. It's really strange when I think about the fact that it seemed really important to me at a point in my life. Huh.

When I was playing regularly it was season 3 I think and you could build Blitz to ult for more than Lux. I always built him for those sweet, sweet team wipes. You're right though. what you do mid game never matters, it's how you're playing at the very end that everyone remembers. I started playing Heimerdinger after an aram match. I don't know how he's supposed to be played, but I always enjoyed setting up turrets and letting people chase me.

I got back into it recently, again.

 

The PTR's currently testing a Lux buff. Get this. If she gets a kill with her ult, it refunds half the cooldown.

 

15-second rainbow beams anybody?

New hero duo is cute

 

I question the idea of creating synergy hamfistedly by giving them direct buffs from being on the same team

 

 

 

 

but it's cute so w/e

I don't know how I feel about it. I just want them to hurry with the reworks. And more skins for older champions.

 

The new Galio and Warwick are cool. They actually have legs now!

 

I am loving the additional bans in pro, it's nice seeing a wider more open meta.

I might have to download League again and give it a try. 

 

What sort of reworks are they doing?

Just revisiting the oldest League champs and updated them completely.

New model
New splashes
Reworked passive and spells.

Poppy, Yorick, Shen, Warwick and Galio got some spiffy changes. I can't remember who else.

Have you seen that they added plants to the rift? There's blast cones that can blow ypu over walls, vision plant, healing plant. This opens up the meta a little more for those who can't skim walls.

Also I've learned that getting an S is very reliant on CS and Kills.

 

Even if you have a ton of kills you still need really high CS, like 200+ to get an S or higher. (Or thats how it is like 90% of the time someone gets an S.)

I've noticed that. Hence my previous posted Diana screenshot. Balls. I also heard rumors that almost no games that finish before 25 minutes get S's. I don't know, finishing a game too early means you went up against mega noobs and don't deserve an S.

Support still gets no love. I did a 0-3-25 game with Nami and that was 100% kill participation. A B+. Topped healing of course. But the game lasted 16 minutes I think... fuck man, 100% participation is still pretty impressive.

Wutevz. I'm looking for a new game to binge on for awhile.

Man, that fucking Sona game was crazy. I downloaded the replay and when I get time I'll post what I can here.

 

Still can't believe that double Quadra kill and nobody getting ascended lol, until Rakan showed up after fight.

 

Then I want to see if I can spot that Kog'maw Icathian Surprise ascension later LOL.

 

That was a fun night. I like Ascension weekend.

 

I really want to play ARSR again though.

I play Dota2, never tried LoL but friends told me it's pretty much the same. 

And I usually support  :rolleyes:

 

Do you play? If not, why not?

It's free. If you've ever heard of DoTA, it's the same concept with a much lower skill floor but still a relatively high skill cap. (ie, it's beginner friendly but good players still stand out) There's a tutorial mode within the game as well as the ability to play against bots if you wanna test something or try a new champion or even if you're just not comfortable against players.

For those of you who do play... who do you main?
I generally like playing heavy CC/AD off tanky/initiator. Been playing a lot of nautilus, but alistar/blitz/riven are up there too.

You should try League. I find it a little more fun than Dota
