FINALLY! 1400+ On All 3 Ranked! + Ranked Rants

If you know me at all ingame, you know that I despise ranked, especially solo queue. The rage and mandatory stress involved (for me personally at least) in it just makes it not at all worth it for me. Don't get me wrong, I like to win, but I don't like the permanence of the visible stats of my losses due to bad players and stupid shit. The fact that in solo queue, you have to basically ass-kiss the badkids all day long and manipulate them into doing what you want instead of just saying what is really on your mind pisses me off immensely.

"You've already been fucking ganked by Udyr 3 times and you SERIOUSLY didnt by a goddamn ward? For the love of god, just please castrate yourself so your stupidity does not get transferred to the future of the human race."


"Hey, I see you've been having some troubles with udyr down bot. You might have better luck if, when you go back next, to buy a ward and place it in the bush near the river. You can see him coming that way! ^.^"

Shit makes me puke.

Anyway, For this reason, I don't play ranked... like.. ever. I've lost over 100 Elo from Elo decay, which is annoying and pisses me off because I'm actually much higher and much better than my ratings say.
 In spite of all this, I managed to get to over 1400 in all 3 areas today. Made me smile. I had been in 5v5 solo and premade for a while, but I never really cared for 3s. Recently, I've played several games on ranked 3s with Trundle. Needless to say, he OWNS that map. The lack of blue is annoying, but if you can deal with early mana, he mops that map up.

Solution to the Current IP Fiasco

I swear, sometimes the only way i can describe riot is fucking retarded.  A few patches ago, they were trying to buff Veigar... I made a massive post on the forums actually doing some math, explaining how in EVERY situation, it was actually a nerf. Earlier, I used math to help show just how moronic their proposed changes to penetration system were (This was on the public test realm, never got to live).

Now, I'm going to use some more 10-year-old math to do Riot's fucking job for them.

Here's the link. Please post and upvote on it! 

P.S. Yes, I vladbrolaf

Patch Commentary + the IP change is a BUG

Hey guys. League of Legends Just had a patch, so I'm giving a few comments and personal opinions on all of the new notes. Most are positive, but there are a few strange changes that I totally disagree with. v1.29.23
  • Created a new UI flow for joining games of all types
  • Updated the Friend List UI
  • Runes are now stacked in the Summoner profile
  • A new game mode approaches: Co-op vs. AI!
    • This mode pits a team of all human players against a team of all AI bots on Summoner's Rift.
    • This mode is supported by matchmaking, and allows summoners to join the queue solo or with friends.
    • Summoners may choose between two AI bot difficulty settings: Beginner or Intermediate.
    • IP and XP rewards are earned, and adjusted based on summoner level and difficulty setting.
    • The following bots are enabled for Co-op vs. AI:
      • Annie
      • Ashe
      • Cho'Gath
      • Miss Fortune
      • Nunu
      • Renekton
      • Ryze
      • Shen
      • Soraka
      • Taric
      • Trundle
      • Warwick
    • Coop versus AI will be available to play in the coming days after the patch goes live, but not on release day.
Extremely cool changes. I've heard rumors that the AI can actually hold their own against pretty decent players. If this turns out to be true, I might just petition that you have to beat the AI before you can Solo Queue Ranked!

The New UI is probably good, but with the fact that I had gotten so used to it, I dont really like any of it at the moment. The stackable rune pages, however, ARE AMAZING. Little things like this really needed to exist a LONG time ago

My IGN is Atreties - Add me!

I've had a few comments asking where I play and what my League of Legends name is. If any of you want to, just add me ingame - Atreties. I accept all friend requests.

If you want to play with me, just send me a message! I have a ventrilo server too if you want to hop on and play with me and a premade. We are fairly high Elo, however, so if you suck, expect to take some criticism. Everyone can improve on their game, myself included.

League is Down. Patch Notes are UP!

Currently writing commentary on the recent  League of Legends1.0.0.111 Patch notes. Some great stuff in this one!

Should be done with it within the hour. I'm SO excited to play with these new amazing changes and the new champ! (Because i've got like 10000 IP to spend)

While I complete the commentary... What do you guys think of the new patch? What do you like most?

Link is here if you haven't seen it:

New Queue System, And Incoming Trundle Guide!

So FINALLY, after a year of dealing with "Unavailible" and "Busy" after every single freaking League of Legends patch, they have gotten the clue, and added a Queue system to this next patch! YES!

While it won't affect your gameplay much, it's going to be SOOO much nicer than having to deal with the damn F5 spamming every 2 weeks or when the servers randomly take a shit.
By the way, in case no one knew, there is actually a secret code that you can put in on the client when the game says busy or unavailible: Left-Right-Left-Right-Up-Up-Down-Down-3-4

I know that sounds like total bullshit, but next time you see Blitz or Amumu, try it. Teemo will grace you with his presence.

So as I've said before, I own every single champion in LoL. I've played them all and am pretty decent with almost all of them. Most of them, however, have begun to bore me.

Most recently, however, I started playing Trundle almost exclusively. I love this highly underrated champ SO MUCH. The ironic thing is that people don't know how good he is... How he can mess up any enemy jungler, Gank like a god, and even turn Rammus into more of a Squishy than Ashe.

So anyway, I'll be making a guide for my Trundle tomorrow or the next day. I'll show different jungle paths, gank methods, teamfight positioning, all the normal content of a guide, and even a short bit on wrecking with him in TT.

I'll even explain why trundle is the single BEST jungler in the game. Yes, better than Warwick, or Udyr, Shaco. Trundle reigns over them all!

Stay tuned!

Welcome to My New LoL Blog

I've been playing League of Legends for over a year now. I have well over 1000 hours of experience in the game, have played with many of the top players in the game, and am a very active member of the forum community on the LoL website.

I currently own every single champion in the game, own basically every relevant rune in the game, and have dozens of skins. When I say I play LoL, I mean I'm utterly obsessed with it.

Recently, I decided that I might try out blogging about my League experience. I have always enjoyed writing about the game and never tire of reading what other people have to say about it, so I thought I'd make a blog on the subject that I will post on fairly regularly.

So, if you can handle that horrid sack of shit of an intro to my new blog without wanting to kick puppies, you might want to check back here from time to time. I tend to have some interesting things to say and topics to discuss.

Until I write something that isn't complete BS, I'll enjoy demolishing you in the game.
