Atheist League of Legends team tryouts.

Wow!  A lot of responses to the idea of a ranked atheist LoL team.  So, here’s what we’re gonna do.

I’m free Thursday night, so let’s shoot for, say, 9pm EDT/6pm PDT?  If you can’t make it, no big.  The goal of this team is not necessarily to win, it’s to have fun.  In fact, since none of us are pro gamers, I expect us to lose a lot.  But I also expect us to have fun and to improve.  :)  Toward that end, I’d like to see where the strongest players are so we can appoint a few captains/coaches.

If we have too many players (which, at this point, it’s looking like we might), we may just field two teams and scrim each other a bunch to improve.  I want to include everybody who wants in, regardless of skill level (though, if you need a lot of improvement, you may have to practice a bit before getting into a game).  So if 8 people want in, we’ll rotate people out.  If 12 people want in, we’ll field two teams.

For now, if you want to be a part of the team, leave a comment answering the following questions:

1.  Your summoner name.

1a.  Is it ok if other people in the comments add you?

2.  The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).

2a.  (optional)  The champs with which you are most skilled.

2b.  If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role?  If so, which one?

3.  What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).

4.  How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?

5.  What would be a good name or three for team atheism?

6.  Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?

My summoner name is Zheyr.  I’m on the road all day today and won’t be on at all, but tomorrow night I’ll pop on and we can get some games going.


1.  Zheyr

1a.  Add away!

2.  I’m strongest in the jungle, but I also support.  In the jungle I prefer Sejuani, Volibear, and Jarvan IV.  When I jungle I tend to stack health and use controller champs so I can tank team fights.  As support I prefer Blitzcrank (who doesn’t, but he’s perma-banned so…), Lulu, and Nami.  I’m working on being able to fill any role, though.  My weakest, by far, is as an adc.

2a.  Honestly?  Heimerdinger.  I eat people with Heimer.  I’m also pretty strong with Teemo, Sejuani, and Lulu.

2b.  Yes.  Any.

3.  It’s tough because I travel so much.  If I’m not speaking, generally any evening.  That’s a big if, however.

4.  I live for this, and have a yordle for every role.

5.  I’m partial to “Team Atheism”.  “Godless Guild” and “Godless Gaming Alliance” are good too.

6.  Sure, though there are definitely stronger players and strategists out there.

    4. Yordle Stomp \m/
    5. I’ll totally go with Godless Gaming Alliance (GGA)
    6. Not really, since most of the players are English speakers and English in not my first languague.

  • http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/ Avicenna

    1. Your summoner name.
    AvicennaLast
    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you?
    Yes Please – I like playing on the American Server
    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).
    Mid. (I have high lag so laning is tough but PVP is decent enough.) but I can play Support/Solo Top and I have had decent luck from jungle). I have been playing for a while so I can fit into roles decently.
    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.
    Mid – Vladimir, Cassiopea, Elise, Morgana, Lux
    Top – Vladimir, Elise, Nasus (Because OP late games are funny), Mundo, Vi, Leona, Tryndamere
    AD/Jungle – Tryndamere, Master Yi, Vi
    AP/Jungle – Elise and Yi i suppose but I have never ever run an AP Yi.
    Tank/Jungle – Voli/Nasus/Mundo/Vi/Khazix
    Support – Lulu/Janna
    Support/Tank – Mundo/ Voli/ Alistar (also Permabanned due to ganking like a train) Malphite/leona and Vi s
    ADC – In Lane? If you don’t mind a non-ranged champion then Tryndamere but I really struggle playing other AD carries in lane. The issue is lag. I can however play a very unorthodox hypercarry Nasus who starts weak but ends really strong if I can get a good tanky support to keep me alive.
    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one?
    Yes. I am trying to learn to play other AD carries. And I am pretty flexible. I am still learning to last hit properly which is hard with the lag.
    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).
    Fridays Evenings/ Saturdays are best due to time differences.
    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?
    Yes. Very Agreeable. I have been seeking a way to express myself through more explosions.
    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism?
    I always wanted to do the Hags of Lag (Trust me if you play LoL as anyone female and win the two usual excuses are “Lag” or “Words that mean stuff similar to Hag”.)
    And if you are being cheeky and meta?
    We are Atheists, We Don’t Believe in ELO Hell.
    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?
    I can do that when I have the time. I do understand the concept of Counter Jungles.

    I think I already added you.

    • julian

      We are Atheists, We Don’t Believe in ELO Hell.

      Yes

      • Loqi

        I see this all the time, so I figure I should point it out: “Elo” isn’t an acronym and shouldn’t be capitalized. It’s named for Arpad Elo, the physicist and chess master who developed it to improve the ranking system for chess players.

        • Loqi

          Rather, shouldn’t be all capped. It should be capitalized :)

  • Nick

    1. Your summoner name. Xalth
    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you? Yes
    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).
    In order Mid -> Jungle ->Top -> Support You dont want me to Adc I can lane OK, but cant teamfight good as Adc
    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.
    I’ve been playing a lot of Pantheon recently both mid and top other than that I try to play a variety of champions and would play what’s needed for the team comp
    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one? Yes I’ve stated above my order of preference.
    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).
    After 5 PM EST is pretty solid for me
    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz? I’ve already done this before.
    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism? Blaspheming the Meta
    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach? Nope

  • http://skepticalimerick.blogspot.com/ Rich Stage

    1. UglyTool
    1a. Absolutely.
    2. I feel that I am best at support. I am also getting better at ADC and mid.
    2a. Soraka for support, Anivia for mid, and Quinn for ADC.
    2b. Yep. I would love to be an all-around player, proficient in every roll.
    3. For me, unless something drastic happens, I’m free every day except for Wednesday afternoons. That might change when the kids get out of school for the summer.
    4. All yordles is the GREATEST THING EVER
    5. TAG Team (The Atheist Gamers), Godless Goons
    6. I am in no way, shape, or form skilled enough to lead a team.

    6. I guess I could be. I’m much better at reading a team situation than an individual situation. Still, there are better people out there than I.

  • Brandon griffiths

    Not interested in tyring out. but the team name should 100% be “where’s your god now”

    • http://smingleigh.wordpress.com Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant)

      I see we had the same (excellent) thought for team name. Note to self: read thread before commenting in future.

  • http://smingleigh.wordpress.com Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant)

    1. Smingleigh
    1a. Go for it.
    2. Utter noob, so I am equally awesome (read: awful) at all roles, although I have little ego so I am perfectly happy in support/healing/non-limelight roles.
    2a. (optional) Totally no clue, willing to do anything.
    2b. Also willing to change to anything required.
    3. I’m free most of the time. Self-employment rocks in that regard.
    4. The tears of teams smashed by “theme” teams are delicious.
    5. “Where Is Your God Now?”
    6. Only if you despise all the players and want to punish them with a coach who has just finished the tutorials.

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/ Avicenna

      “Where Are Your Gods Now” and the tag line can be “We don’t believe in Elo Hell”
      And you have my vote (and my bow… and my axe if I am playing Mundo)

      • julian

        “Where Are Your Gods Now” and the tag line can be “We don’t believe in Elo Hell”

        That’s outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

    • Loqi

      The jumgler is the healer of LoL. Not in the way that you actually heal, but more in that it’s always your fault if someone dies.

  • Derek

    1. BillShatner
    1a. Of Course!

    Oooh, how about “Iron Chariots” as a team name?

    • http://skepticalimerick.blogspot.com/ Rich Stage

      “Iron Chariots” is my new favorite.

  • Art Vandelay

    When you guys are done sorting this all out, can we get back to making fun of Jesus?

  • Ryan C Woods

    First let me caveat this by saying I’m the newbiest of newbs (I’m only summoner level 7) and as such wont be able to join in ranked matches for a bit. However, I would love to play with you guys as I have lurked this blog for a while.

    2. Newb so none really, though I like top and mid solo lanes, and am trying to learn jungling

    4. m3 71k3 teh lulz
    5. I like the “We are Atheists, We Don’t Believe in ELO Hell”
    6. Fresh meat here, I would be the best possible coach /s

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/ Avicenna

      I am currently in the mid range. I however am a level 30 on the EU server. I don’t mind giving you company on the way to level 30 as will others who are ranking up at the moment…

  • Loqi

    While I can’t commit to a team, I’m happy to be the team’s punching bag if you need practice partners and I happen to be online. Summoner name is Loqi (and a smurf named “Stump Chunkman” that I use for ARAMs). Anyone is free to add me.

  • Anonymous

    1. BionicWoman
    1a. Absolutely!
    2. Best as ADC or support. I can also mid. I can’t top or jungle yet. I can run a support/tank with Leona as well.
    2a. Caitlyn, Miss Fortune, Sona, Janna, Morgana, Lux.
    2b. Sure. Any of the above. I’ll top or jungle but I don’t promise to do it well.
    3. Mondays after 6PM EDT, Sunday all day. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are out. Every other Saturday is out.
    4. I can play Tristana.
    5. I don’t know. D:
    6. If we need someone I’ll step up to the plate.

  • Adam

    I wouldn’t mind joining a non-tryhard team to see what we can do.

    1. Garr Legrand
    1a. Yes. And I’m always in the Godless LoL chat when online.
    2. Most experienced in support.
    2a. Janna, Lulu, trying to learn Tristana
    2b. Yeah, I’ll try anything.
    3. Sundays don’t usually work. That’s the Lord’s day (or I’m out for family dinner). Other than that, Eastern US/Canada time zone evenings is what works for me.
    4. I enjoy yordles and have a few unlocked so I’m all for it.
    5. I’ll go with one of the names that didn’t get chosen for the GW2 guild, Evil Little Things. Synergizes well with all-yordle comp. : P
    6. Not really skilled enough.

  • Laen

    1. Your summoner name.

    Cleardale

    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you?

    Yes

    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).

    Support, jungle, top, mid, adc in that order.

    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.

    Taric(before the boost too!), Sona, Soraka, Ashe, Ryze, Brand, Garen, Cho, Jax, Panth, Eve, and starting on Akali.

    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one?

    Yes, any that I have the characters for.

    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).

    After 5pm Pac time week days. Weekends.

    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?

    Of course.

    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism?

    I kinda like WISYGN or WAYGN don’t truly care though.

    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?

    Not good enough at the game for it.

  • Cenebi

    1. Your summoner name.
    Cenebi
    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you?
    Go ahead
    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).
    My roles in order of skill are: Jungle > Support >Top/Adc > Mid

    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.
    In jungle I’m probably most skilled with Maokai. I also think I’m fairly good with Amumu, Jarvan, Vi, Nocturne, and Nautilus (Though Naut is somewhat less powerful than he was in s2)
    As support, I tend to be best with Taric (Who isn’t?), Leona, Blitzcrank, Nami, and Janna.
    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one?
    I’m willing to get better at ADC or Top if I’m not needed as Support or Jungle, but I’m just a terrible Mid.

    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).
    Generally any time from 3/4 PM PST to 8 PM PST. I don’t have any specific days I can’t play, but my Thursdays and Fridays are mostly all open.

    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?
    Always a fun plan.

    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism?
    I really have no opinion here. I’m terrible at naming things.

    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?
    I’m willing to give it a shot if necessary. I’m sure there are better junglers out there (I’m only ranked Bronze II), but I’m pretty good at things like ward positioning (at least I think I am).

    I should note that I am currently on another ranked team with a bunch of friends, and should there be a conflict, the other team (which is brilliantly named “Euclids on the Block”) takes precidence. My goal is to be able to take what I learn from each team to improve my play on the other.

  • http://smingleigh.wordpress.com Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant)

    Thanks to JT and the others who took me under their wing last night and gave me a superb introduction to League of Legends. Fun games, good people, and the tears of our (artificial) enemies made for a great evening.

    • http://smingleigh.wordpress.com Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant)

      Supplemental shout-out to Cleardale, who, despite my best efforts, kept me healed and fed and fighting beyond the point where most would have thrown up their hands in despair. /Salute

  • IAmTheOddity

    1. Unicorn Origami
    1a. Sure!
    2. I’m honestly pretty much OK anywhere except Jungle. Just based on my best champs, I’m probably most suited for Top.
    2a. Nasus, Veigar, Xerath, sometimes Rumble or Zilean if I’m feeling cheeky.
    2b. I’ll go wherever I’m needed. Order of preference: Top, Support, Mid, Carry, Jungle.
    3. I work 11:30-8 EST Wed-Fri and 9-6 Sat/Sun. Band practice late Mon/Tue. This may honestly prevent me from practicing, but if times work out, I’d love to.
    4. Veigar is my homeboy, I’m good.
    5. I second “Evil Little Things”.
    6. …no. Please, no XD

    Side note: It will be some time before I can compete in ranked. I used to troll HARD and my main got permabanned. I’m less horrible now, but I’ve been playing less frequently since and I’m not back to level 30 yet.

  • noradrenaline

    I don’t currently have the levels or the champion pool to do ranked, but I would love to fill out a team for friendly scrimming.
    1. noradrenaline
    1a. Sure, if you wanna
    2. I like top and am trying to learn jungle (most of the champions that I immediately loved playing turn out to be natural junglers). I’m probably the worst at ADC, but I’m inexperienced enough overall that there’s not that big a gap between best and worst for me, so I would fill wherever I’m needed.
    2a. Top: Singed. Jungle: Xin Zhao, Nocturne. Mid: Brand. ADC: Tristana. Support: Nami (love all the Nami love in this thread!)
    2b. Absolutely; any.
    3. Evenings, after say 7:30 (central US time)
    4. This seems excellent, although I don’t have many yordles currently. You can run Teemo top, right?
    5. Evil Little Things is a great one.
    6. It would not, I think, be wise. I would be interested in spectating your ranked games and discussing/critiquing them afterward, but it would be a learning, not teaching, experience for me.

  • Tennis

    1. Your summoner name.
    RuliHellion
    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you? sure. be sure to say where you got my summoner name when you message me. (i always add notes to people on my friends list so i know why i have them on it.)
    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).
    I play Support -> Mid -> ADC -> Top. you don’t want to put me jungle. i can do it but I’m not at all skilled with it.
    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.
    Too many to list. i own over half the roster and play about half them well. i prefer champions with a good amount of CC over champs without CC.
    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one?
    Yeah i can fill in a teams needs well. all but jungle. I’m willing to try but i know I’m not good at it.
    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).
    allot in the afternoons. during the week and most of the weekends. no good Monday, Wednesday morning, Thursday afternoon, Friday morning, and Saturday morning don’t work for me. other then those I’m typically logged in.
    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?
    I LOVE doing this. i own most of the yordles and i think its a blast doing funny comps. similarly i like playing a all large AOE comp, like nunu, galio, amumu, fiddle, and ziggs.
    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism? Godless Gaming Alliance gets my vote. it allows for many teams to form if there are more people then one will allow.
    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?
    i do allot of theory crafting with runes and Masteries, but I’m not the one to ask for good in game advise.

    1. Bobito2
    1a. Sure!!!
    2. I main Support, I can do Mid, adc, Top, and Jungle.
    2a. Janna, Nami, Soraka, Orianna, Caitlyn, Miss Fortune, and Alistar.

    3. Any day after 3 in the afternoon!
    4. I love Yordles!
    5. I like Godless Gaming Alliance.
    6. Eh not really, I’m not much of a leader.

  • Richard

    1. Dorrin
    1a. Sure
    2. Like a few on here, I main support but I can do any roll but jungle. I get lost… in there….
    2a. My first main was Kayle, then it was Janna for the longest time. Both got punched in the face repeatedly for a while. No longer have a main or default, I try and fit the team. I <3 veigar, the evil bugger. <3 teemo <3 heim Does amumu count as a yordle? Alistar is a classic, I can pull of a moderate blitz. The list is long.
    2b. Just not jungle, for the love of all that is made of chocolate =( My rolls from strongest to weakest:
    Support , burst AP, physical dps, secondary tank, tank, …………and waaaaay over there is the jungle.
    3. Most evenings after five, Thursday after ten, afternoons on weekends except when I meet up with my local atheists.
    4. Yes. Yes yes yes.
    5. Not great with names…. purple?
    6. You'd be desperate to pick me for a coach, but I'd love to help anyway I can.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Are you willing to jungle? I have one more spot open for a jungler. :)

  • Alyssa

    This is super late, and I know we already did phase 1 of tryouts, but I didn’t give a lot of info earlier besides my roles so here’s everything:
    1. Alyesa
    1a. Feel free to add me :D
    2. Prefer mid or support. I can top somewhat. I will ADC if absolutely necessary [please don't make me D:] and I cannot jungle.
    2a. Lux, Lulu, Elise, Annie
    2b. I am willing to work on top and ADC. I don’t think I’d be comfortable jungling.
    3. Pretty much any day after 2 or 3 pm CST. Currently trying to find a job so this could change.
    4. I would love an all yordle game holy poop.
    5. I like a couple of the names already mentioned, including Godless Gaming Alliance and Evil Little Things.
    6. I’d prefer to not be team coach, but I’d be glad to assist one!

  • julian

    Thanks, everyone! I had so much fun last night. It was great playing without the frustration and raging of ranked.

    Thanks, JT! And thanks teammates for keeping me motivated even after I wanted to surrender!

  • Sexyjedi

    1. Sexyjedi

    1a. Of course, I would love that!

    2. Support or Mid. I can play ADC and Top pretty okay, and I really am bad at jungling.

    2a. Leona, Sona, Taric, Syndra, Diana, Annie

    3. Friday-Sunday I am free all day, unless I get pulled into a raid. On other days, I am free after 8 PM PST.

    4. LOL. I could go with that :P

    5. The Four Horsemen +1, Godless Twitches

    6. No thanks. There are better players out there, and I am not very well suited for this sort of thing.

    • Sexyjedi

      Well, I guess I may be okay at jungling with some practice. I just haven’t done a lot of that yet :P

  • Jim

    Just found this thread today after searching for name ideas for my new ranked team. What luck! If this is still ever going on, I’d love to get in on some of the action.

    1. Your summoner name:
    shadowman615

    1a. Is it ok if other people in the comments add you?
    Sure, let me know where you are from.

    2. The role (or roles) for which you are best suited (top, jungle, mid, adc, support).
    Jungle, support, adc, or mid, about in that order. I can play top too, but I’m not to confident at it.

    2a. (optional) The champs with which you are most skilled.
    I’ve got a 91% win rate in ranked with jungle Vi right now, but I play a large variety of champs, especially in the jungle. For adc I’m best with Ezreal, top I’m best with Riven. I have quite a bit of depth to my support roster but I’ve been playing a lot of Leona lately. My first favorite champ, and still my main mid laner, will forever be Morgana.

    2b. If several players run the same role as you, are you willing to learn another role? If so, which one?
    Like I mentioned earlier, I’m comfortable in any role.

    3. What days/times work best for you to practice (and what days/times are a no go).
    Any weekday after about 6pm CST except for Monday nights.

    4. How agreeable are you to running on an all-yordle team in normals every once in a while for the lulz?
    TEAM YORDLES!!

    5. What would be a good name or three for team atheism?
    I’m liking suggestions with the Four Horsemen. I figure names are already set by now, though.

    6. Do you want to be considered for the job of team coach?
    I’m only Silver ranked at the moment, but I do spend a lot of time playing, reading, following the scene, and being an all around League nut. If advice or coaching is asked for, I’m willing to oblige, but if there are people more knowledgeable than me they should probably take over.

  • Coconut

    I hope you will consider me for a spot on your team. I have been playing LoL for a couple years now, and I believe that I have a very good understanding of the game mechanics. I don’t get to play as much as I want to because of my old job, but now I am working from home.

    1. Coconut Migrator
    1a. add away
    2. I am strong in every role. My strongest, though, are top and jungle. I do prefer to top lane if I can, but I am also not afraid to play supports if needed. I like to think I am very strong in every role.
    2a. this list might be a little long…
    Kayle – first champ I used when I first started playing, and fell in love with her mechanics. I played her to 30 on my first account. I am very good at top laning with her, as well as building the mighty hyper carry.
    Singed – Singed is one of my favorite champs because of this sustainability. If I can, I will most likely try to play a singed top.
    Rengar – Bush jump op. ’nuff said.
    Varus – Probably within my top three most played ad carries.
    Vayne – Big shocker, eh?
    Fizz – I don’t always play mid, but when I do… I throw chum. (he isnt the only mid champ i play)
    I was pretty well with Akali before they nerfed her.
    I am always up to learn to champs :)
    2b. Like I said, I play every role.
    3. My new work schedule is lenient. I can play most mornings (mountain time) and i play most nights.
    4. I would very much like to rock an all yordle game or 20.
    5. As you can gather from my name, I enjoy a little slapstick here and there.
    Silly English Kuhniggits
    Large Wooden Badger
    Churches can Float
    Bring out your Dead
    Skrim(age) the Enchanter
    Antiochs Holy Grenades
    Tethered Husks.
    Sorry for all the suggestions (all monte python themed)
    6. I dont know what would be involved in being the team coach. I like to help others a lot, and feel like I have a strong grasp of the game. I am silver ranked from season 2, and had to stop playing for a while because of job and internet issues. I am back and running full throttle and was hoping to find a team filled with other like minded individuals.
    sorry for the long comment.
