I’ve been playing a fair amount of League of Legends lately. I have a history of always picking the weakest character in a game and trying to make it work. In LoL, that character is Heimerdinger. You never see him, and he has the lowest winning percentage in competitive play. So, of course, I bought him.
I also watch games while I’m writing, especially when there is a good tournament going on. This morning I had this match on, and it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. What this team did was like running a quintuple reverse in the Super Bowl. This is just so unorthodox. It’s the type of thing that makes the whole gaming world laugh at you if it doesn’t work.
But when it does work, you’ve just become legends. This is especially true considering that did while tied 2-2 in a best of 5 series in the championship game of the biggest tourney of their careers. Just…balls of steel.
In other news, studies have actually been done on atheists and video games. The results surprised me (since I like both video games and table top games like D&D).
