Tuesday conversation: League of Legends.

Ah, it’s good to be back at home and writing regularly (which means the regular posts will go back to being, y’know, regular).

Over the break, my brother convinced me to try League of Legends.  It’s a lot of fun, but the people who play it have a high tendency to use the asshole-enabling property of internet anonymity to its fullest.  So I’ve played only one game against other people, who were very serious about victory, and it didn’t go too well.

However, I’ve been playing against bots with my brother and with Michaelyn.  I suck at the game, but it’s fun.

My characters:

  • Teemo
  • Kennen
  • Singed
  • Blitzcrank
  • Twisted Fate

I tried Poppy, but she’s really rough.  She farms like shit in the early game, but boy, does she hit like a freight train if you can keep her at a similar level to the other players.  I also didn’t get into Ryze that much.

I like tanking a lot, and I find it’s the role for which I’m best suited.

Do you guys play LoL?  Which are your champs?  Also, I’m on a quest to unlock all yordles.  So far I have Poppy, Teemo, Tristana, Kennen, and Veigar.  That leaves…

  • Rumble
  • Ziggs
  • Corki
  • Heimerdinger
  • Amumu
  • Lulu

Which one should I go after next?  :)
