Talk Nerdy To Me

Well, my internet is back on and I have decided to spend all night doing something very very cathartic.

My usual stress release is online gaming. At the moment the laptop and internet connection are perfect for playing a little game called League of Legends ( which is a rather simple game with an immensely high learning curve.

Any fellow FTBers fancy joining in? Give me a shout! I am mainly on the EU East server as AvicennaLast…

    League is actually pretty simple in comparison to the other big competitive RTS titles (the original MOBA’s child DotA 2 is a lot more complex and Starcraft II is a lot more mechanically demanding). I find League to be really relaxing after a hard day of work if only because the skill cap is so relatively low for mechanics and the rest is almost entirely up to decision making.

    What champions do you have or have played so far? I find the game is a lot easier to learn while playing either a ranged AD or AP carry or a support character paired with someone playing a carry.

    I prefer it to Defence of the Ancients (DotA – Not everyone here is in the game so keep it simple). The game does lend itself to the eSports concept a lot more. Game play switches around faster and from a spectator standpoint it’s a lot more easier to understand.

    I think they just flattened the difficulty curve of MOBA… the high curve belongs to DOTA the flat curve belongs to LoL (League of Legends). You can play at the same standard of DOTA where a single mistake can mean the game, or you can play LoL where you CAN play the comeback fairytale.

    So far? I have a fair few actually. Currently using Vlad for mid, Lulu for support (and also for some mid games), Nasus as my offtank/late game murder machine, Mundo is my jungle and I don’t really have an AD ranged carry I like. I think they are dull and boring to play. My AD of choice is Tryndamere… who I personally think is rather OP.

    I do have other characters but they are often “Bought but never used”.

    Trynd is awesome. He’s so good at low to mid elo because people just don’t understand that you want to force him to proc his ult unnecessarily and then leave. One of my favorite pubstompers.


    I meant to write Dota 2 instead of DotA 2 (such a bad habit…), Dota 2 (while the name inspires the same thing) isn’t Defense of the Ancients 2 for legal reasons. Inspired game with much of the same content. See:

    Riot Points can certainly unlock rune pages,
    champions along with various boosts (experience and influence points).
    Nonetheless, Riot Points are not able to be spent upon runes.

    mentioning buddies to League of Legends).

    Points (RP) along with Influence Points (IP).

    be played out. However, at this time there usually are a range associated with no cost champions readily available to be able to
    perform each and every full week in order to offer summoners the choice to trial run champions just before getting all of them.

    Presently there usually are several champion types
    readily available like assassins, bruisers, supports, casters, junglers and tanks.

    Comparable to masteries, runes impact game play in trivial ways.
    Runes are sorted straight into Marks (offensive), Seals (shielding), Glyphs (miracle) and Quintessences (utility).

    Runes ought to be revealed inside the particular
    Shop as well as this is actually likely to possess
    much more than just one backup associated with a rune.
    Summoners ought to fix their very own runes
    around often the Runebook for you to reap some benefits coming from these.

    Typically the Runebook provides constrained number of slots for each rune type,
    but more rune pages can be purchased from possibly Influence Points or Riot Points.
    Merging a couple equal-tier runes produces a unique rune of the similar tier, even though merging 5 equal-tier runes creates a higher-tier rune.

    Right now there are at the same time lots of activities similar to League of
    Legends in the event that a person are usually curious throughout seeking a unique MOBA knowledge.

    If perhaps anyone would like that will learn about much more related to exactly how for you to receive Riot Points for League of Legends next pay
    a visit to, exactly how to get free Riot Points with regard to League of Legends.
