Dignitas release a statement apologising for the LoL MLG Summer Championship debacle

Comment
Dignitas release a statement apologising for the LoL MLG Summer Championship debacleAfter all the furore during the MLG Summer Championships, where Dignitas and Curse both played ARAM (All Random, All Mid) during the final of the tournament, giving the players a free for all that was more chaotic than strategic, both teams were disqualified. Curse have issued an apology, and now Dignitas have done the same.

What is League of Legends: Supremacy?

What is League of Legends: Supremacy?

In the middle of last week, Riot filed a trademark for something called ‘League of Legends: Supremacy’, and they did it quietly. Without a lot of fuss. Incognito, you might say. You could even infer they sneaked into the trademark office in an overcoat and a fedora, with some thick sunglasses, before looking left and right, then throwing the papers across the room and running out in a panic. You might, but that would be a bit silly, what with ‘Riot Games, Inc.’ all over the trademark forms. But still, it could have happened.
The interesting part is that you have to provide a few reasons for why you want a trademark when you file it. And while Riot might have thought they could get us off the scent with reasons like nautical (Nautilus?), magnetic data carriers (Viktor?), fire-extinguishing apparatus (Firefighter Tristana?) or automatic vending machines (er...Blitzcrank?), there’s still enough meat in there for us to have a good old chew. And here’s the post-chewn mouthful that we’ve come up with.

What is ARAM and why is it brilliant? Harnessing the chaos of League of Legend's new mode

Comment
What is ARAM and why is it brilliant? Harnessing the chaos of League of Legend's new modeYou sit down in your chair, roll up your sleeves, and prepare for a sit in meal upwards of forty minutes, when you play League of Legends. It’s something to take your time with, enjoy, savour. It’s a slow build to a massive crescendo. It’s French cuisine, carefully packaged and not enough to stuff your face with, but rather force you to take your time over it. 

ARAM, currently only available in custom games, is McDonald’s blasted down your gob with a firehose, over too quickly for you to do anything but wildly flail around, desperate for something, anything to grab a hold of, so that you don’t have to endure this high octane saturated fat for any longer.

I absolutely love it.

League of Legends to get ARAM Mode in next patch

Comment
League of Legends to get ARAM Mode in next patchThose of you familiar with Heroes of Newerth might also be familiar with ‘ARAM’, a player encouraged game mode that turns out to be quite a lot of fun. It stands for ‘All Random, All Mid’, and features everyone on the team, err, going random, and then going mid. It’s not really all that complicated. But it is an awful lot of fun. And it's coming to League of Legends.
