    Casual Volibear (he's all I play now). Never played ranked, but I've been with LoL for years mainly with my younger brother and some friends.

    We switched to Smite several months ago with limited LoL play however, and more recently Warframe in the last few weeks.

    [soapbox]
    LoL...they come up with a crapton of new champs a year but we've been playing on the same 3-4 maps FOR. EV. ER. Sure, they've switched up the gameplay modes a bit in the last several months but seriously. Mobas REALLY need to concentrate JUST AS MUCH on the damned maps. Why no 10v10? Why no 5v5v5, or 3v3v3v3? Why no 4 lane maps? Why no 2 lane 5v5s? So, so many possible permutations and yet we're stuck playing the same fething maps year after year after year....
    [/soapbox]

    Cool seeing others who play LoL and who love Middle-Earth though!

    I've been playing on the same "map" for almost 10 years (DotA for 5-6 and LoL for 4). They don't need to add more. Summoner's Rift 5v5 is the map to play on, it's Riot's main focus. People know the map and have yet to master it. It's large enough to support an almost unlimited amount of team comps and playstyles. Kind of like how the football field or basketball court stays almost exactly the same, there's not much need for change.

    They have been putting out different game modes this year though, like 5 of the same characters vs 5 of the same characters, 6v6, etc. but they never really take off.

    It doesn't matter that they don't "take off". The big thing about League compared to other MOBAs is it's mainly geared towards the competitive scene and balance. Adding in new game types and maps aren't really in Riot's best interest when what they are focusing on is the ESports scene and everything around it.

    The All-for-one game type has been one of the most popular game modes, but even after it was added to the matchmaking, people still will drop back to good-ol' Summoner's Rift. Like what you said, it's what people are used to and it doesn't need to change.

    Adding in new game-types doesn't create a better game, it just makes a larger game.

    Monte Cristo, coach of CLG and caster for the Korean LCS, does a weekly show wherein he talks about patch notes, why/how teams are doing well, strategy, how to play certain champs and more.


    also a pilot of another league show called Summoning Insight with Thorin (analyst, interviwer at ongame) and Monte Cristo. This is more just talking about league of legend pros, teams, strategies, etc.

    No, it's the League of Legends thread. That video is League of Legends related. I don't think other people would appreciate me posting it in the Funny Videos and Pictures thread.

    Dude is the new analyst for Supa Hot Crew and was a SC2 pro living in Korea who made the switch to League. Has a few coaching videos on his channel that are long but informative.

    I don't understand why there aren't more Viktor players. I just rolled face as Viktor on ARAM.

    What's even better is I was 2v5'ing them quite a bit with Soraka.
