[MOBA DOBA] League of Legends, the Name Game {Tourney Spreadsheet in OP}

I made a spreadsheet so that everyone who wants to sign up for an in-house tournament can do so. Once we have a general idea of how many are going to participate, we can start making teams, brackets, and all that.

Sign ups are here

We're just looking to see how many people we could get for a tourney. We're also quite unsure of how it will play out. We've been kicking around ideas like, "Everyone play for a week, compile stats, and get points based on kills/wins/etc". So, if you have ideas, post 'em!

Here's your standard, wiki-stolen background:
Two main designers for the popular Warcraft III custom map, Defense of the Ancients: Allstars (commonly abbreviated as DotA), Steve "Guinsoo" Feak and Steve “Pendragon” Mescon are involved with Riot Games in the making of League Of Legends: Clash of Fates[6]. Guinsoo created DotA: Allstars from the original DotA, created by Eul, by adding his own mix of content, including over 40 heroes, numerous items, and various gameplay changes. Guinsoo then passed DotA: Allstars on to its current developer, Icefrog. Pendragon, who is the Director of Community Relations for Riot Games, helped create the DotA: Allstars website along with its forums, and is still currently working on League of Legends: Clash of Fates.

Peeps usually be hanging out in the PA vent, hit it up for some games. HANG OUT IN VENT TO GET GAMES!!! It's the easiest way to get going with us, just show up and ask if anyone is looking.
If you can't find any there check out the LoL vent (https://beta.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=6) and you can probably scrounge up a pre-made.


If anyone can find a copy of D Damage - Ink 808 (Ink You Lay Remix By Krazy Baldhead) let me know so I can link it here. It totally sounds like part of the refrain is "moba doba" from witch the title comes from.
Until then, here a couple of the most kick ass tracks in existance to listen to while you are playing...
League of Legends
the name game

Hello and welcome to League of Legends, I'll be your mika-mika-MC for the evening, MooMan. On this edition of The-League-of-Legends-Thread-Not-Stolen-By-Fallout the League of Legends Thread we're going to enjoy a little game. The name of the game is the name game! PM me your super innovative, and hilariously unique nick names for your favorite League of Legends characters! Our super-ultra-grand prize is the chance to play this very game with none other than... the MooMan. The only rules to the game are that: 1) every name must have a sophomoric, juvenile reference to a crude word or piece of anatomy. 2) fuck your mom!

Check it out, it's fun to play with while you're at work and can't be at home playing. It's made by community members; so, expect it to change a bit behind any patches.

There is now a tutorial that new players can check out.
If you're just starting and wondering who to play (I believe you play her in the tutorial as well), Ashe is generally a good starting character: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/champions/view/22/ashe_the_frost_archer

    I just played an AWESOME game with Tristana. Fucking LOVE Rocket Jump. Resets on kills and assists? Amazing. Double and triple kills of me just rocket jumping from victim to victim down a line of people running away equal distances apart in middle lane. Their Shaco and Annie were fed so it was a tough offense, they couldn't get into our base though because they had to focus all attention on all the super minions.

    quote from a dude in there "looks like the nerf fairy has to pay trist a little visit" not realizing that I was kiiind of fed, once I had infinity edge I was pretty ridonkulous.

    While we're on the subject of ignoring mooman's non-bolded words, I'm Alvarian in game if you want to add me to the list.

    I am also glad to see Dr. Glock added to the list.

    We should've won too..but I was dead, they took out the inhibitor first with only the enemy Morgana defending the Nexus Turret (towers were down), and tried to retreat as Tryn back doored.

    I had fun playing a crap early game with Tristana, so the enemy team didn't go for me first. But once she got infinity edge everybody died and I gloated.

    Any specific reason? It's giving me a lot of practice with lane control, scouting, shadowing, and diversionary tactics. Plus making most players waste 400g a life seems useful.

    When you're playing with a bunch of other new people, Eve seems pretty boss. Like Yi, she's a great pubstomper against people who don't know what they're doing.

    Against a team with even a modicum of organization she's close to useless because:

    -The only people who get Oracle Elixers are tanks, and a decent tank is very, very difficult to kill.
    -They actually use sight wards, making you still more useless for scouting.
    -She is incredibly easy to kill. If Eve is in any fight where there is more than one enemy, she goes down within half a second.
    -She requires a lot of kills to gain enough power to be a real threat. Conversely, if an Eve is doing well but gets killed once or twice, she generally loses her momentum and sucks for the rest of the match. And because Eve is so killable, if you're too weak (which you generally are) anyone you try to assasinate can just turn around and kill you back.
    -Her abilities are all pretty terrible. Her stun is laughably short and ineffective for actually doing damage.
    -She brings nothing to team fights. She can't stun, can't sneak up on people, and is absolutely wrecked by AOEs. An Eve basically guarantees that any full-team fight will always be a 4v5.

    In short, she's only good against people who have no idea what they're doing and/or no teamwork/coordination. You're better off learning Shaco if you want a similar playstyle -- he brings MUCH more to his team.

    I've gotten into Teemo recently and he can be so fun, I love knowing how frustrating I am by just laying mushrooms everywhere, and stealing kills from teammates with my poison (I"m a dick). I just tried running an AP build and hooo boy was it hilarious. My mushrooms seemed to be doing a third or a half of an enemy's life, though I was playing against a pretty bad team.

    I also love Blitz and Gangplank, but haven't played them since the Beta (and I just started playing again) anyone have any tips?
