experiment with weird mids, not AP


Posted: March 4, 2012 by xenocidebrm in General

I’m not sure it needs to be said at this point, but we are on an indeterminate hiatus, what with most of our authors being either busy or disinterested.  This does not mean that we’re done with League, or with guides, or with talking about games, but it does mean that you won’t see any regular updates for a while.  Thank you so much for being a part of our little experiment so far, and we hope you’ll stick around for when we decide to get things together and start writing again.  Until then, you can always reach us by commenting on this post, and you can find most of us through our summoner names (most of which are identical to our author names).

Finally! Requeue delay and hidden disconnects.

The basics from the Nautilus patch are this – everyone in the world got nerfed except for Alistair, Shen, and Warwick.  In addition, 2 much-needed changes to the game itself.  When someone dodges a queue, you now are automatically not requeued for 8 seconds, giving plenty of time to get out if you want to.  In addition, if someone on your team D/C’s, the enemy team won’t be notified for 5 minutes, which eliminates the 5v4 D/C push.  Awesome!  There haven’t been any substantial analysis articles in a little while now, but be assured that we’re working on one!

PSA: Regarding “Calling It”

Posted: February 9, 2012 by xenocidebrm in General

Unless you are under twelve and on the playground discussing the swings, there is no “calling it,” especially in draft mode.  I don’t care if you said you wanted to play Annie mid, if you’re last pick you need to fit in with the rest of the team.  That is all.

I recommend Full Screen because you can’t see the chat too well.

Items Guide – Magic Resist Part 1

Posted: February 3, 2012 by xenocidebrm in Items

All the Armor in the world won’t stop you from dying to that fed AP mid. While less important than Armor, Magic Resist can mean the difference between surviving at half HP and finding yourself back at the spawning pool. AP is all about early and mid game dominance, so make sure to pick up AP defenses before the enemy has a chance to burst you down to zero!

As an aside, I’ve also put in how to counter each of these items. I will be updating past articles over the next week with strategies against items, so re-read those past articles to learn even more!
