League of Legends summer split open thread.

I had a good walk today.  Didn’t find any of my childhood toys, but enjoyed standing on top of the boulder feeling like the king of the world.  :)

I think I’m going to call it a day.  Here in about an hour day 2 of the League of Legends summer split kicks off with Curse Gaming against Velocity.  I think there will be popcorn, a beer that doesn’t taste like a god damn daisy (stay away from Sam Adams Noble Pils if you like beer that doesn’t taste like a freshly mowed lawn), and relaxing.

If you’re watching the games, feel free to drop in here to chat about them.  I’ll likely be around.  :)  Here’s where you can watch the matches live.

    So true about the Noble Pils. The only beer that gives me hayfever.

    • JTEberhard

      well, I’m on my tablet and it has trouble with Twitch’s chat pane. So comments it is! :P

  • Zinc Avenger

    I think your Twitch channel‘s chat feature works even if you’re not streaming. Worth a try, anyway.

  • Loqi

    Pulling for anyone but TSM this split. Primarily because I remember Reginald from beta, and he pretty much exemplified everything that is wrong with the LoL community.

    • JTEberhard

      True, but every team has a player like that. Doublelift is an absolute ass. But XSpecial is a hella class act and WildTurtle, OddOne, and Dyrus are all super nice.

      • Loqi

        I get the feeling Doublelift is hamming it up for the cameras. I haven’t heard of him actually being a toxic player.

      • Loqi

        Totally correct about the rest of TSM, though.

  • Zinc Avenger

    Left-handers represent!

    Note to self: Disable Youtube automatic updating live comments. Jeebus, I lost IQ points.

    • JTEberhard

      Are you a lefty, Zinc? w00t!

      • Zinc Avenger

        Oh yes, it’s hard sometimes when the Evil Atheist Conspiracy meetings are scheduled on the same days as the Left-Handed Conspiracy meetings, but so far I’ve made it work!

        *Lefty secret salute*

  • JTEberhard

    I know Saint Vicious is the all-star out of the jungle, but every time I see him he makes bad engages. I’m not impressed with him.

    • Loqi

      Yeah, he’s way overhyped. He gets the all star treatment because he’s been around for a long time and he’s a good streamer. I thought Crumbzz was much more of an impact player during the first split. Dig definitely got a huge upgrade in the jungle when IWillDominate got banned. If they hadn’t have lost Voyboy at the same time, they’d be the dominant force in NA.

      Though I have to admit, Saint was an absolute beast for NA during the all star weekend. Best I’ve ever seen him play.

      • JTEberhard

        More OddOne! :)

        • Zinc Avenger

          I cannot endorse someone with his controversial views on Yordles.

          • Loqi

            I’d have thought his extreme antiyordleism would have driven JT away.

          • JTEberhard

            LoL, it was tough to get past that.

  • JTEberhard

    Velocity should’ve been happy with this inhib turret. Pushing there was dumb.

    • Zinc Avenger

      Overcommitting is the number one cause of death in LoL Champions. This has been a PSA.

    • Zinc Avenger

      Now that’s a well-chosen withdrawal.

  • Azkyroth

    Why do you know what lawns taste like?

    • Zinc Avenger

      Looks like we’ve got us a skeptic, here. Put ‘em in the skeptic tank.

  • Zinc Avenger

    I unlocked Twisted Fate solely because I love the sound his basic attack makes. *Thwip!*

  • JTEberhard

    How the fuck did Curse throw that kind of a lead???? Gah! Cloud 9 so cheesy!

    • Zinc Avenger

      Sometimes you win, sometimes the other guy loses.

  • JTEberhard

    Dyrus going top lane Yorick! Whooooo!

    • Zinc Avenger

      I always find myself rooting for the team fielding the most uncommon champions.

  • Loqi

    I’m home now and turned LCS on. Is this on the live patch, or one behind?

    • Loqi

      Looks like last patch. That Kha’zix W applied his passive.

      • Zinc Avenger

        Confirmed, last patch. Saturday they apply current patch for tournaments after the bugs are shaken out.

  • Zinc Avenger

    You really have to know your capabilities to tank a turret with your face like that.
