League of Legends loot box odds released in China, we (hesitantly) translate themLeague of Legends loot box odds released in China, we (hesitantly) translate them
QDP2 Avatar
It's worth noting that China's RP prices, item drops and odds are completely different to the rest of LoL. Since Tencent own Riot, they have manipulated prices heavily over there. To put it into perspective, it costs 3250RP here for one of the ultimate skins. That's 19900 RP on the chinese server (not a mistype, 20,000 RP). To my knowledge, RP is cheaper to buy than over here, but skins are still notably more expensive when comparing currency costs per skin.

For hextech, you get portals that drop instead of chests, and just like chests you need to get 3 key-shards to open each portal (that said, key shard drops are much lower, my diamond friend's account has 30 unopened portals).It costs 40 Gemstones for Hextech Annie, and 80 Gemstones for Hextech Vayne! There's no option to turn the gemstone's into a chest and key either.

Linked below are a load of screenshots to verify (and add some more info if anyone reads Chinese here):

Thinking about it, I'd have nothing against an old Blackthorne remake for a mobile, leaving the gameplay as was but pumping the visuals up to date :)

That's another possibility (Rock 'n' Roll Racing, Lost Vikings and their other old games too). They came to Game Boy Advance back when that was relevant, so they've still got the code. StarCraft: Remastered doing well (which I think it will, depending on price point) will probably spur them to do more remake stuff.

Yeah, quite apart from Frank Pearce's statements, that's a $$$ IP now.

Probably be some on the way this week.


EDIT: or not, I guess. Looks like they're focusing on those three champions.

You can, but not all the time and it seems kinda random when it decides you're allowed to. It's a pretty poor system, and various save / load bugs are probably the reason.

It's during "critical missions" like the main story and crew quests.

It was literally started because some dude was mad a girl broke up with them. If the vocal majority was worried about ethics, they should probably, idk, start a new hashtag.

I've found when people won't distance themselves from something that they tacitly support it but lack the balls to say so.

Heroes of the Storm review snippet Why would you pick Heroes of the Storm over League of Legends or Dota 2?
Mainly the speed. Individual games are much shorter and more action-focused - you can play two or three games in an hour, and even short sessions feel more fulfilling than other MOBAs.

Oh soz for late reply thanks for the reply man much appreciated :) i was wondering because u did it in the previous patches 7.3 7.4 etc but is it because Riot Games don't know what game-mode to put up yet?

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void review snippet Are the aliens in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void scary?
Depends how you feel about faceless psychics and gribbly beasts. It never goes into straight-up horror, and Blizzard's style is so over the top that it defies becoming disturbing.

No, it subverts itself a lot and switches it up from just plain cute rather quickly.

You Must Build A Boat review snippet Have you come up with any clever strategies in You Must Build A Boat?
Beyond matching non-combat tiles outside of combat as much as possible and avoiding wasting big damage combos without anything to hit, no, it's mostly luck with a bit of pattern recognition in there.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth review snippet How gory is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth?
Nothing spectacular, and the low-fi graphics mean it's far less in your face than you get from today's various big-budget offerings. It is gross, though, and if you stop and think about what's going on it's basically disgusting.

Grand Theft Auto V review snippet How open is Grand Theft Auto V to explore?
It's a massive city that's basically completely unrestricted, especially with some mods to open up more of the buildings. The tools you have to get around make it even easier, but there isn't a lot to do out there.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive review snippet How does Global Offensive compare to Source or 1.6?
Source was my game and even the tiniest changes in GO put me off initially. It has some additional weapons and a large rebalance pass, plus various changes to the cash system, menus, level layouts etc. It's also patched more regularly than its previous counterpart. It is as much a brand new game in the details as it is broadly the same. However, if you're a Source or 1.6 hardcore player, you likely already know which you prefer.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN review snippet How realistic are the horses in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN?
As realistic as it's possible to be while being an armoured, immortal horse that gets air-lifted by a balloon regularly.
