The streaming squad features the hottest, upcoming or most interesting titles of their and the communities fancy for a few rounds of PvP shenanigans in our weekly Twitch channel staple.

League of Legends

After weeks of delaying, the time has come to play League of Legends! League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena that was based off of the original Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne mod and Defense of the Ancients.  League of Legends, or LoL, is produced and published by Riot Games and has an astonishing average of 67 million players who play each month. The ultimate goal of the game is to destroy the other 5 player team’s nexus and win the game. Sounds simple enough, eh?

I’m pleasantly curious about how I will fair in League. I have many Dota 2 friends who say that when they tire of the grind in Dota 2, they will log onto League to relax and play some causal games. They relate the game as an easier and less stressful version of Dota. With that said, I’ll have some disadvantages regardless of how much easier it is to play than Dota. The most apparent is the how disorientated I will be in game. The hardest aspect of a moba is positioning and when I switch from game to game, I have to accommodate myself to the camera angle and the game layout. This isn’t to say that I won’t be able to adjust, rather, it’s a disadvantage I will unfortunately have to deal with. The second disadvantage is the heroes , ah, champions. This isn’t as difficult because most people playing at my level will not have intensive knowledge of the champions. I can guarantee you that during the stream you will here me relating the champions  to their relative partners in Dota. I don’t do it to be insulting but rather to understand the hero better in a pinch.

For all of our League players out there, this is your calling! Come join me on the stream or even in game today at 7:30PM on twitch! I’ll need your help and support.
