Another weekend in the books, and another bucket or ten filled with delicious League of Legends rage. My newest source? Trying to time Tryndamere’s ult ‘just right’ and having the screen go gray right as I hit ‘R’. Bonus points for when you do ult up, dish out some good damage, and the perfect escape plan makes you look foolish when Trynd decides that rather than spin OVER the cliff/trees/whatever, he is just going to spin INTO them and stay on that side. So win. He is a blast to play though, because assuming you survive the early game reasonable well, he is just a complete monster late game. Seeing squishy champions melt in 3-4 crit hits (yay 75%+ crit rate) always brightens my day.
I’m now less than half a level from 30 and ranked games, which is rather exciting. The rest of the regulars I normally play with are still a ways away however, so ranked premade 5v5s won’t be here for a bit. Still, solo/duo ranked matches should be fun, if for no other reason than to see just how drafting really works and what affect it has on the game.
What’s also really keeping the LoL momentum going is that a lot of Inq members are also heavily into the game, and have been for a while now, which means that on any given night we have 4-10 people in vent gaming. This makes it easy to jump in and join up rather than have to play alone and deal with four random strangers who may or may not decide it’s a good idea to play aura Garen or fire cape Eve. Along with the ‘core’ members, we have had a few new or returning faces around as of late, which is always nice to see.
In MMO news, looks like the long-delayed Darkfall expansion is finally on its final days of testing/prep now that the unexpected server issues have been handled. I know I’m not alone in waiting for that to be the catalyst to return to Agon, so hurry up and release it already AV.
Chuck-o-the-day: Someone once put Chuck Norris on hold. That’s where the term ‘choke hold’ comes from.
