Don't get me wrong, they killed me (I think I managed an even kill/death ratio in the end) but it apparently wasn't enough to win the game.

Edit: Just double checked, I was 5/6/12 that game. So not awesome, but considering it was 2v1 most of the time, I'd say not horrible.


Thresh is pretty beastmode at the moment. I can see him able to hold his own in a 2v1 lane, especially if he has map control so he always knows where Leona is when she's trying to, and no pun intended, bushwack. Leona's a true monster when played right, but she's pretty easily countered if you can dodge her skillshots and position yourself intelligently behind your creep line.

So... apparently IGN has canceled IPL 6. Not something that normally would have been a big deal, but this announcement came 24 days prior to the start date... meaning a lot of people are now trying to figure out how to get refunds for their travel arrangements and IGN is getting a lot of backlash for not just going through with it and saying it's the last one.

I feel bad for the people that are out whatever money they can't get refunded (in this case, plane tickets) but then a part of me is wondering why they didn't get travel insurance or have some other backup plan. Might just be because I'm accustomed to the threat of my vacation plans being disrupted by the military.

Why not use your travel plans, and just enjoy a weekend in vegas?

It is still a pretty poor move on IGN's part, although I guess with the new change in staff after being bought out, I am not suprised something like this went so poorly handled.

In other news, taking a break from ranked for a bit methinks, just gonna focus on some other games, and play some regular normals with friends to keep in practice.

That's what a lot of people were suggesting on reddit, or see if they can get their tickets changed for MGL in Dallas. That still doesn't mean the people that are affected by it are happy about it.

In other news... I don't know how to play Diana. Went into a custom vs AI game and just picked someone I hadn't played before. Didn't do any research on her (just to see if I could get the hang of her) which means I was probably doing something incredibly wrong (attempted AP mid.)

I play her ap mid, but I know jungle wasn't terrible in the past (no clue if that's still the case)

How did you skill/what did you build?

I started boots and 3 health pots and from there I think I went Deathcap and Sorc boots. At this point I don't really remember, I'm just fairly certain I was playing her incorrectly because I usually don't have an issue stomping the AI.

Edit: Oh, and I was alternating Q and W with 1 point in E and of course picking up R as available.

Also, as far as I've seen, she's still a viable jungle.

Edit 2: I might have also started a Trinity Force... I recall thinking it might be an okay item for her.

I used to go boots -> Rylai's -> Sorc -> Abyssal -> Deathcap. NFI if that still works though. If my laning went alright and I wasn't sucking horribly at last hitting I'd start ganking after Rylai's and snowball from there. Grain of salt though, I don't normally AP and the last time I did the Annie I was up against was so bad that I'd killed her before I had charge on top of failing so hard at last hitting that I'm not even sure why she bothered.

So I played a tanky initiator Diana today which was weird. Apparently the team really hated me after shitting all over them early game. Was forced into rushing an hourglass after my abyssal instead of a death cap like I had originally planned. I like the part where my shield got really annoying for them once I had my blue buff and hourglass though. Them ignoring the vayne helped a bunch too. :3

Looks like it stands for their home if they're not affiliated with them anymore, eg Sivir is originally Noxian and Sona is originally Ionian.

Can't even deal with how much easier it is to play a decent leona when you have an aggressive graves/ez following up your initiations. Holy mother of god I'd almost forgotten how obscenely dangerous a leona kill lane could be. :3 :3 :3 :3

Get good at predicting and accounting for lag on us servers, migrate to oceanic beta and miss every single fucking charm the entire game because I'm firing a fraction too early. FFS.

Hey bros, I've just recently hit playing LoL a bit more seriously (mostly support but i toy with other roles occasionally).

Anyone fancy doing some unrankeds with me? I promise I'm cute.

Anyone on the Oceanic server who wants to game add me 'Orthien'. Only recently got back into LoL after taking a break while still new.
Mostly just doing ARAM with friends, sometimes SR against bots rarely proper SR.

US players of the League of Legends video game have had personal details including credit card details, email addresses and usernames hacked.

Developers Riot Games confirmed in a statement on their blog that their records had been accessed.

"We're really sorry to share that a portion of North American account information was compromised," it said.

"Usernames, email addresses, salted password hashes, and some first and last names were accessed."

Although the passwords had been protected, the company advised that any gamers with "easily guessable passwords" were vulnerable to account theft.

Riot Games is also looking into 120,000 transaction records from 2011 that may have been hacked to find out if users' credit card details have been leaked.

"Our investigation is ongoing and we will take all necessary steps to protect players," the company said.

I brought the Lucian & Skin combo pack when he first came out and I have been having a lot of fun with him. Finally got him in an ARAM last night and imediately the PUG pinged me for a swap. I kept him and proceeded to have the most fun I have ever had on that map. Only pulled 10/4/16 or something due to the poor mistake of forgetting mana regan out the gate though, but still had a ball.

Only played him in a couple of vs AI matches so far, but he was definitely a keeper (which is good... since I already bought him...)

I've sort of taken to ignoring normals and pretty much do full ARAMs when I'm playing... Ashe, MF, Twitch, Ez and Cait tend to be my best AD champs (though I use that term loosely with Ez, since I lean more towards his Blue build.) Morg and Lux for AP, with group dependent champs being TF, Trist and Kogmaw.

Thanks to ARAMs I no longer cringe when I get Shaco or Eve (and can do fairly decent, again depending on the rest of my team.) Sadly, it is not the place to practice last hitting.

Hi guys, just randomly necroposting.

Is there anyone left here playing LoL / following LCS and such? I love the game even though I'm a horribad noob (Silver 3 failing promos to 2 so far) and I really enjoy watching the pro scene, was looking for people to talk about it with!

I usually watch it all on youtube a couple weeks after it plays live. Rarely do I catch the livestream. I enjoy it though.

My favorite teams are C9/EG for US and ALL on EU side.

ALL <3 Was glad to see them going "from 0 to hero" within 2 splits as Froggen is probably my favourite player in whole LoL pro scene. Hope they are strong enough to compete with the insane Korean/Chinese teams, they got a death group in Worlds.

I've been saddened by EG performance this split (well and the previous one), felt like they had a hard time making the team work after the split from Froggen and Wickd. However in the last few matches and in the promotion they shown a significant step up in gameplay and shotcalling, I really hope next split they can pull things toghether and not be just a bottom line team!

I agree. Definitely think Froggen is one of my favorites.

I was sad to see Snoopeh had stepped down (and eventually Yellowpete/Wickd.) Reading about it... looks like he has plans to make a comeback, but not sure if that'll still be with EG.

Was a bit disappointed with GMB this season as well. Looks like they're putting up a fight based on the relegation matches, but they've definitely fallen from previous seasons. Not sure if having Edward leave for a season (and now having Alex Ich gone) caused them to fall from dominance or what.

I haven't started watching Worlds yet... hopefully I get a chance to on my next couple of days off (Mon-Tues.) Can't wait to see how things end up!
