      The evolution of League of Legends, today
      BY PABRO

      The future of League of Legends is Ultra Rapid Fire and the future is right now. Set to go live next preseason, this massive update will help every player make impactful plays at every stage of the game. To give you a taste of this bold vision of the future, we’ve enabled a special preview queue that’ll be live for the next week. Check out a few of the hardest hitting changes:
      Every champion begins the game with 80% cooldown reduction on abilities, activated items and summoner spells
      Casting spells is fun, but running out of mana isn’t, so mana and energy costs have been removed
      Marksmen could dole out tons more damage, so attack speed bonuses for ranged champions have been doubled
      Later today, Cloud 9 and TSM will square off to claim the first ever pro U.R.F. victory - catch the action at lolesports.com. Or give Ultra Rapid Fire a shot yourself! We’ve opened up the mode to normal and Co-op vs AI queues – play a game and you’ll earn an exclusive summoner icon that’ll land in your account within three days.

    • Showdown!

      League of Legends

      I was sad that All for One is gone, but Showdown is another cool mode!

      Fight your opponent(s) in a 1v1 or 2v2 battle of skill!

      Both modes are blind draft, but you get time after you lock in your champ to see the opponent's champ and make preparations! Here's how you win

      First to lose their tower loses
      First to die loses
      First to 100 creep kills wins

      First team to lose their tower loses
      First team with 2 deaths loses
      First to 100 creeps wins

      Suicides DO count towards the other team's goal! Executions are seen as deaths, even if your opponent didn't get credit for the kill!

      Who will you ban? Who will you choose?
      Do you have enough skill to win THE SHOWDOWN?

    • All For One!

      League of Legends

      If you didn't know, League has a Public Beta Environment. It is a place where they release all the updates, champs, etc. before making it public on the ranked servers.
      Get it here: community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/

      So, why mention this?

      ALL FOR ONE!

      It's a new game mode in the same spirit as ARAM. The normal rules allows for both sides to ban 3 champs followed by a blind pick. Each side chooses champs, and the champ with the most choices wins the vote.



      I can't wait for it to be public


    • Smite!

      League of Legends

      I played this game a while ago. It was pretty fun, but in the end felt like a "My first moba" with its auto buy system and very simple item list.

      Since RT started getting sponsorship from the game, it has popped up a lot more on this site.

      Has anyone else tried Smite! and if so, what do you think about it?

    • All Random All Middle

      League of Legends

      ARAM is now an official matchmaking queue!

      I'm always down for some ARAM, especially now that you get non custom game IP for it!

      First wins, queue dodgers, trolls! All things that have improved with this queue.

      For those who don't know what ARAM is, it started simply as an honor based game where both teams went to the middle lane of summoner's rift. No stacking items were allowed and you can't buy once you leave spawn. Side lanes were ignored completely.

      This type of gameplay, while super fun, had a lot of issues. Mainly, people would just cheat. They'd go back, shop, hide in bushes, go to other lanes, etc. If they got a champ they didn't want, they'd just leave the custom game and you'd be forced to wait for another person to fill.

      ARAM got very popular, so popular Riot added the ARAM map in a patch not too long ago. ARAM was reborn! There was no cheating, only one lane to go to, and the items were removed from the shop. It was amazing, and still is!

      The problem was that people would get a random champ they didn't like, leave the game, join another, repeat. This would make starting a game take 10 minutes in the worst cases. It was a real problem and games wouldn't start smoothly unless most of the people were premade, and even then we'd have douchy friends that wanted to dodge.

      Now it's match made! No more "lol, you can't report me, it's custom" and no more dodging! So far it works perfectly!

      If you haven't played aram, nows the time to do it! If you are an ARAM vet, now's the time to actually enjoy it!

      Enjoy the most fun form of League there is!

    • Lissandra, the Ice Witch, revealed

      6 years ago

      League of Legends


      Lissandra is a flexible, mana-efficient mage with abilities that emphasize crowd control, kiting and mobility over raw damage.


      - Iceborn (Passive): After a brief cooldown, Lissandra's next ability costs no mana. Hitting an enemy with movement impairing abilities reduces Iceborn's cooldown.
      - Ice Shard: Lissandra throws a spear of ice that shatters on contact with the first enemy struck, dealing damage and slowing their movement speed for a short duration. Enemies behind the struck target also take damage.
      - Ring of Frost: Lissandra freezes the area around her, dealing damage to nearby enemies and rooting them for a short duration.
      - Glacial Path: Lissandra casts a slow-moving, long-range ice claw in a line, dealing damage to all enemies in its path. Re-activating Glacial Path teleports Lissandra to the claw's current location.
      - Frozen Tomb (Ultimate):
      On enemy cast: Lissandra freezes an enemy champion, damaging and stunning them briefly. Dark Ice emanates from the target, dealing damage and slowing nearby enemies.
      On self-cast: Lissandra encases herself in ice, rooting herself in place briefly and becoming untargetable and invulnerable. Dark Ice emanates from Lissandra, dealing damage and slowing nearby enemies.



      Mid lane:

      Lissandra's mobility and crowd control skills make her an ideal choice for aggressive, roaming mid play. By shoving the lane with her AoE abilities, the Ice Witch can create the space she needs to make a move on top or bottom lane. The long range blink from Glacial Path lets her get the drop on enemies from unexpected angles by jumping terrain or by circumventing typical ward locations. Once the ambush has been sprung, Lissandra's potent combination of slows, roots and stuns allows her to stick to an opponent and close out the kill.

      Top lane:

      Lissandra's passive allows her to be much less dependent on blue buff compared to many of her AP counterparts, making her an excellent, self-sufficient choice for top lane. Despite her low base durability, the long range blink on Glacial Path helps Lissandra stay safe by pulling off daring escapes. If she's caught in a gank, Lissandra can freeze her would-be killers in place with Ring of Frost before disappearing over terrain with a well-placed Glacial Path.

      The area of effect damage on Ice Shard also allows Lissandra to guard turrets even when pressured, or press the lane in an attempt to lure enemy junglers into a counter-gank. When an opponent takes the bait, Lissandra can cast Frozen Tomb on herself, ensuring her own survival as she uses her other abilities to set up kills.

      Team fights:

      Lissandra isn't the type of mage who immediately blows up high-value targets, but instead has the potential to lay down impressive amounts of damage and crowd control on grouped up opponents. The AoE aspect to Ice Shard keeps enemies pinned down through repeated area damage and slow effects while she waits for the opportune moment to unleash her full combo. Once she sees an opening, Lissandra can use Glacial Path to close in and lock down a high-value target with Frozen Tomb. If the opposing team starts to focus her, Lissandra can instead use Frozen Tomb on herself, juking the initial burst before escaping with Ring of Frost.

      If you're looking for a mage who favors crowd control, mobility and kiting over raw burst damage, Lissandra is sure to make a welcome addition to your lineup.


      Lissandra’s magic twists the pure power of ice into something dark and terrible. With the force of her black ice, she does more than freeze – she impales and crushes those who oppose her. To the terrified denizens of the north, she is known only as “The Ice Witch.” The truth is much more sinister: Lissandra is a corruptor of nature who plots to unleash an ice age on the world.

      Centuries ago, Lissandra betrayed her tribe to evil creatures, known as the Frozen Watchers, in return for power. That was the last day that warm blood ran through her veins. With her corrupted tribesmen and the strength of the Watchers, she swept across the land like a terrible blizzard. As her empire spread, the world grew colder and ice choked the land. When the Watchers were defeated by ancient heroes, Lissandra did not lose faith and swore to prepare the world for their return.

      Lissandra worked to purge all knowledge of the Watchers from the world. Using magic to take human form, she masqueraded as numerous seers and elders. Over the course of generations, she rewrote the stories of the Freljord, and so the history of its people changed. Today the fragmented retellings of the Watchers are seen as children’s tales. But this deception wasn’t enough – Lissandra also needed an army.

      She set her sights on the noble Frostguard tribe. Lissandra knew corrupting the Frostguard would take centuries, and so she launched her greatest deception. She murdered and stole the identity of the Frostguard leader. Then she slowly began to warp the tribe’s proud traditions. When her human form grew old, she faked her own death and then murdered her successor to steal her identity. With each generation, the Frostguard grew more insular, cruel and twisted. Today, the world still sees them as a noble and peaceful tribe that guards against evil creatures like the Ice Witch. In truth, they now serve the witch and long for the glorious return of the Watchers.

      Lissandra knows that on that day nations will fall and the world will be reborn in ice.

      “Close your eyes and let the cold take you.” - Lissandra

      Thanks to @Panzerdemon - I am now an admin in this group! Thanks!

      I would like to put my thoughts about League of Legends in a place where others can benefit from it, and this is a good place to start.

      I've played League since closed beta, even though I've never been above Bronze Tier, because I can't dig myself out, no matter how well I do. That being said, I at least have over 1000 normal wins, and numerous other wins (I happen to like ARAM a lot)

      Edit: MY SUMMONER NAME IS BobbyBirdseed

      In the coming days/weeks, I'll be posting various thoughts from Theorycrafting to League news to all things in between.

      I'm looking forward to talking with you folks.
