Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[League of Legends]Why did Riot servers go down for ten hours on patch day? For rest.

League of Legends is a game inspired by the Defense of the Ancients, developed and published by Riot Games.

READ THIS FIRST!

Frosteey's Super Useful Advice Corner
Tip #1: Have fun : D


Have you scored a Pentakill?
Spoiler:
Get on the G&T vent to play with us (list at bottom), the vent info is stickied at the top of the forum.

Game Info and Useful Links:
leagueoflegends.com, the game database provided by Riot (who make the game).
leaguecraft.com, there are a lot of fan sites out there with general information and builds. This is just one; and, it's kinda slow as shit. Regardless of where you look for builds keep in mind, most of them make assumptions that are not clearly conveyed and there are a lot that are just plain bad. Tread lightly.
KillerCodeMonkey's wiki, add your brilliant shit to it.
Game mechanic shit, stuff like how attacks and magic and fuck work.
Rune break-dancing, good info about what runes you should buy.
Livestreams Watch the pros rage.

THE BUSY-BUSTER CODES - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
When you've got the client open, type

"Left, Right, Left, Right, Down, Down, Up, Up, 3 then 4"

Alternatively

"CTRL+L --> [ javascript:setServerStatus(1) ]"

Again, use them at your own risk.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO SPEND REAL CASH DOLLA MONIES FOR CHAMPIONS

Drop $20 for the Retail Box (Amazon, Best Buy, GameSpot, Newegg, Target, and Wal-Mart typically have this) It gives you $10 in Riot Points, take those, then buy $10 in Riot Points and $5 in Riot Points. Spend all of them on the second champ pack.

That's $35 for 40 champs permanently unlocked; none of the post-40 have ever been in a bundle AFAIK.

Q: How can I get champions and save money?
A: You won't have to spend a cent if you simply play games and earn enough IP to buy them all. If, however, you wish to hasten the process you may buy champions with real money. The most cost effective way to buy champions is by purchasing the two bundles on offer.
For $45 you can buy 6380 Riot Points, which are used to buy champions and skins. 3900 of those points gets you the Digital Collector's Pack, which contains 20 champions and includes 1380 Riot Points (huh?). If you were to buy the champions individually it would cost 37800 IP or 9620 RP. The Digital Collector's pack can also be bought in stores or online as a boxed copy, which may save you a significant amount of money.
3410 Riot Points gets you the champions bundle. This contains some more expensive champions. Bought individually they would cost 60750 IP or 14350 RP (ish).
This leaves you with 450 RP, enough to buy yourself a single skin!

the LoL wiki for the updated Champion list.

Valiantine has a lovely spreadsheet that you can add your summoner name to.

HEY LISTEN!

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Ap5qFqD3oLKndHNfOGJ1VFNZVVZ6c1NtZVktdXpsTVE&hl=en&authkey=CJPuh4wG#gid=0

I placed everyone's name in the OP to this neat and tidy spreadsheet. You should be able to edit it yourself, find your name and fill the fields. If anyone is getting problems, PM MooMan or VaLiantine, because I don't understand simple spreadsheets. Please play Persona 4 if you haven't already.

    Funny enough, I played 2 games late last night after finishing PAA:EP1:OTRSPOD, and had a Galio on my team for game 2.

    He owned pretty hard. We won.

    Nice, what was his name? I like to stalk profiles and look and rune pages/ item builds

    Edit: I'm actually undefeated ranked as Galio so far 3 for 3.

    His mana costs are still amazingly low. Just don't use E in the jungle even after you get it at 4.

    When I have to jungle him, I've been doing Minis, Wraiths, Wolves, Blue
    Back for health and a couple more potions
    Minis, Red, gank

    I haven't been able to get his blue start time under 4:45 or so (possibly faster if I killed big wolf, but his initial blue is so dicey I don't like to), but he's about half health which is sort of good enough to gank?

    I have made an important discovery! I've been told a few times that whenever an enemy targets you a faint orange glow will appear around them. I have never seen this, perhaps because I am colour blind or because it is so small. However, I have now found out how to change this.
    Spoiler:

    Go to C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\CFG\defaults and open Game.CFG with notepad.

    AggroSize = 2 I changed to 5. I will probably put it back to 3 or 4.
    AggroColor = 150 50 50 I changed to 0 0 255. It uses the Red/Green/Blue format which goes from 0 to 255 in terms of intensity.
    I'm not sure what AggroColorFactor does.

    It absolutely is, but sometimes in Normal after I lock, the team asks me to jungle him because of what the other dudes pick.

    If you gotta do it, might as well be efficient with it.

    Watching Stonewall's jungling a little more closely, I think I see what he's doing differently than me that's cutting some time off, I'll have to re do it when I get off work.

    I have changed my Xin jungling(I was starting with a cloth armor). Which isn't to say the time has improved, just that I feel safer and fuck spending that much money on pots. Start with a vampire scepter, mini golems, wraiths, wolves, go back and buy a cloth armor or cloth armor + 1 pot, then full route starting at mini golems.

    Edit: And I also like Xin more in a lane.

    I've been playing Morgana recently. I usually feel like I'm being a pretty big help, but my CDR ratio is usually kinda 'meh'. Am I doing it right?

    Build is usually:

    Rod of Ages -> CDR Boots -> Deathcap -> Haunting Guise or Hourglass, depending on enemy MR

    I don't think CDR Boots is the consensus pick. Swiftness can be more useful in some games depending on your need to dance.

    I generally do Cata->Boots1->RoA->finish Boots
    Hourglass
    ?? (usually Void Staff, WotA, or Deathcap, sometimes DFG)

    If I was going to get CDR Boots, I'd try to know that at champ select so I can switch to a runepage with AP/level blues instead of CDR. It's easier to grab 30% from Boots+DFG than to find a good 10% item outside Fiendish Codex.

    Yeah Bebe. I've noticed the Orange glow when someone right clicks you. Not sure if it's the same when you are targeted by spells. The thing that annoys me is when it bugs when you run in brush and they stay lit up even though they can't see you.
