League of Legends Season 3 semifinals preview

Tonight the League of Legends World Championship series returns to the Galen Center in Los Angeles, the same venue where last year’s Season 2 champs, Taipei Assassins, were crowned. This year, the final championship series will take place at the even bigger Staples Center in downtown LA, while the Galen Center now plays host to the semifinal matchups between Korea’s top two teams, SK Telecom T1 and NaJin Black Sword, and a continental showdown between China’s surprise powerhouse Royal Club and the European old guard of Fnatic.

League of Legends to get items that upgrade through use rather than gold

Comment
League of Legends to get items that upgrade through use rather than goldWe already knew a lot of changes were coming to League of Legends in advance of Season 3, but today Riot’s Kuo-Yen “Xypherous" Lo revealed a key revision of how certain items will upgrade throughout the game.
