League of Legends!

League of legends is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. In which you play the part of a summoner who can control a champion from a wide selection of characters.
Said characters can be bought for cash monies, or by using an in game currency called Influence points (IP) that you get just from playing the game. Unlike other microtransaction nightmares you can enjoy the game at the same level as the whole community pretty quickly regardless of whether or not you pay, the only real difference is how quickly you unlock new characters. Every week there is a rotation of 10 characters that're free to play for that week every Tuesday. Riot tries to make sure that there's 2 champions of various roles such as tanky, magicy, hitty etc.

Check out their site here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com

The Tribunal allows any level 30 summoner to decide the fate of trolls and bigots for prizes! Help Riot weed out the foul from the murky at http://www.leagueoflegends.com/tribunal

While Riot doesn't officially support a Mac client for League of Legends. You can find more information here: http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/download

    sorry for the repost... but I'm happy about it.

    I had a great game! Went as Singed after two terribly, terribly bad games (Amumu, had trouble with my skillshot, always turned my despair toggle off when getting near (I'm used to pressing ability buttons when near. >_<, then Jax, had a d/connect and a really bad start.)

    I got 9/1/5. I was laning with Raiden333. He was Nasus. He had a pretty good score too, something like 5/4/9. (We were pretty consistent, hehe).

    At first, I was a bit nervous because we were laning against Master Yi and Singed. I mean, I was afraid I once laned against a Singed/Nocturne team and got murdered thanks to his fling. So, you know, Nervous and, with the luck I had, I had good reason to be nervous. Before the game, I asked for some advice in the channel and followed it, investing in Fling before Toxic gas. It went exceedingly well. The Yi ended with 12 deaths or so and Singed probably died around 4 times, at the least. The guy was a lot more cautious... However, he was not very talented as a Singed. What was pretty great is that he died at least two times from both of us flinging the other. It was like something out of a samurai movie. I got the hang of Singed. Be Audacious, Be Fearless, Be Insane. I also learned that singed is great with people who tend to over-extend. Let's just say Yi dies 12 times because he chased me a couple times too many and also because he never learned that Nasus' stick is massive.

    Also, I finally got around to using potions. This is something I'll try to invest in more often.

    TL;DR: 2 Singed entered, flung each other, 1 Singed died. I survived and laughed.

    Hey, my score for that game was 9/3/3! One of my best yet!

    Seriously, we made a fucking awesome team. The second one of the enemies in our lane would over-extend even a little bit, I would slap a wither on him, 21st would throw him behind us, and we'd dogpile him to death in a few seconds before they could run away. Good fucking times.

    That was pretty much always Yi, though. The guy was always overextending and I get why, Yi can be a beast and sometimes, you forget how squishy you are, especially if you're coming from a game where you were going wuju -> highlander -> alpha strike -> highlander -> Alpha strike and just killing people left and right, meditating the the middle of battle to restore a bit of health...

    It's like the gas cloud is invisible to some people. They don't realize and then they drop dead.

    Also, dogpile. Hilarious.

    They should make Cataclysm suppress it's target for a short duration, really. As it is, it's just too easy to escape.

    it's great if you have a smart assassin on your team, because then you can drop it at the start of a teamfight and make everyone hit the panic button burn their flash instantly just to get away from you

    then your akali or kassadin or whatever flits around with impunity causing mayhem

    Cataclysm is a really effective allied-player trolling tool, if you're into that.

    I had a guy Cataclysm right next to me and just leave me stuck in the terrain tanking turret shots until I died. Everyone except me thought it was funny.

    Well, if you can autocast cataclysm now, that means that it has a second, awesome use as an anus entrapment, like Trundle's, but way better. People would have to run around it's pretty large diameter(in comparison to the penis pillar), and it would be tough to flash away to safety, and not end up in it or in a pretty similar or worse situation than one was in.

    Man, the more I play Leona the more I'm liking her. She's feels like Alistar in a lot of ways; ridiculous CC coupled with being beefy enough to get right into the middle of a team fight. Very enjoyable pulling off a triple stun.

    Can't believe they're buffing Tryndamere even more. I realize he's underplayed at high levels, but he's already such a monster in pubs....

    At least he gets kills. It's not like a Singed who refuses to extend, run around or do any crazy gambits. Or a singed who decides to fight the other team's singed and keeps getting killed.
