Blood Bowl League Update: “The ball is up… and we’re off!” Season 1 has started, and everyone has their first match. Check out our updated website (including starting team photos!), set up a time with your opponent, and enjoy the games!
Darkfall: Due to an unfortunate brain laps, I missed out on Darkfall’s racial battle. An official post about it can be found here, along with some videos. Sounds like everyone involved had a good time, with some lag/load issues popping up for some. This can also be seen in some of the videos. If nothing else, I would have loved to see how my hardware handled the whole thing, as usually I get better-than-average results. Next time I guess.
Titan Quest: I’m still working my way through this game (10hr in maybe?), and it’s still fantastic. I’m still surprised at how good it looks for an older game, and some of the graphical ‘tricks’ it has continue to impress. Totally worth the $5 spent here, especially since unlike DF, LoL, or BB, it’s very easy to jump in for 30 minutes and make a little progress.
League of Legends: Captain Teemo on duty! Since his remake I’ve been playing Teemo almost non-stop (still play Shen in ranked when I can get him though), and really like what he brings. His strong early harass (especially in a side lane, as middle he is a little too easy to harass by many), blinding Q shot, and mushroom (or in my case, satellite) spam is all good stuff. I’m playing him without Flash as I expect it to be removed at some point, which makes escaping a team battle nearly impossible, and everyone loves to focus down the little guy. Usually I go out with a bang though, dropping a mushroom right at my feat, and usually setting up the area beforehand with them as well. Many have fallen to an unexpected explosion as they retreat at low health.
Allerion, Remastered and I have so far attempted two ranked 3s games, but both have not gone well. 3s is just a totally different game than 5s, and we are still figuring out which champions ‘work’. Not banning Shaco is a mistake that will only happen once, and I’ve yet to play Tryndamere thanks to enemy bans. It’s a work in progress, but at least we don’t have to fear the issues of ELO hell with an arranged team.
