I’m a little surprised since Ahri doesn’t seem like his type of play style.
And I really want to play now since I just read up some builds and guides for Riven, I wan’t to see if they are more effective than what I have been doing so far. I have to learn to harass more and be less cautious, while still preventing myself from dying.
I suck as Sona, even though it’s a lot of fun to support
I have already established myself as a decent Caitlyn player, and I am becoming more experienced with Riven
Oh, did I mention that Riven has the same voice actress as Noel Vermillion?
CRISTINA VEE FOREVER!
At first I wasn’t doing so hot since my Vanilla Visa gift card wasn’t working. Without that, I wasn’t able to buy my best champion from the store.
As soon as I got it working, I bought Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover, and proceeded to wreck the competition. Unfortunately, I lost a few matches since Reese and his friend were not very experienced, and didn’t know how to efficiently build their champions. I often found myself keeping the enemy heavyweights at bay and providing covering fire so that Reese and his friend could level up, as I was usually 3-4 levels higher than them.
BUT IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. We had each others’ backs when we were trash-talking with an OP Nocturne player, who drove us crazy with his unfair way of playing.
It was a lot easier to play with these two than with Dan Hwang, his cousins, and Jun Ryu, since Hwang isn’t YELLING AT ME. (JK bro)
Very fun, very eventful, especially because he’s a pro at that game
I did pretty well for my first game against human players. I finally got more kills than deaths, which (as Mike said) was commendable since I was playing as a character that is not known for dishing out damage.
Today was my first time playing as Sona, a mute musician that comunicates with you telepathically. She is a lot more fun to play than Fiora. I will post her art shortly.
We ended up winning the game, not surprisingly since Mike is a pro.
The best description for this game would be: a combination of Lost Planet 2, and Gears of War, neither of which I like very much.
HOWEVER, Resident Evil seems to take my cake, since I really want to play it right now. I think I like it more because it has a much faster pace than Gears of War and Lost Planet.
I will now summarize the first level, which only took me 20 minutes to complete (even after I died twice)
I chose Four-Eyes as my main operative and proceeded with the mission: Locate Dr. William Birkham and secure a sample of the G-Virus.
After a quick tutorial, military Spec-Ops broke into the area where I was training. I took cover and returned fire. Eliminating them was a little more difficult than I imagined, you really have to go for head-shots here. After the little firefight, my squad infiltrated an Umbrella base of operations. The team leader, codename HUNK, entered Birkham’s lab with another unnamed, unimportant character and proceeded to take the virus by force while the rest of the squad and I stood guard at the entrance. I heard screaming from inside to lab and turn around to investigate. Lo and behold, Dr. Birkham had infected himself with the G-Virus and turned into a monstrosity with an huge eye on his right shoulder.
The rest of the level was spent running from him, and mowing through a squad of Spec-Ops.
—I can see this game getting really monotonous eventually, but I’ll keep playing nonetheless. I really like the story so far, and online multiplayer Heroes mode is a lot of fun. Turns out that I am really bad as Jill Valentine and I am much better with Claire Redfield.
Golden Harvest is really nice too
so happy since it comes out on Tuesday. The cashier at Gamestop and I were both freaking out and my dad was like o_O
It was 5v5 players vs bots. I must say it was a lot of fun. I chose Fiora the Duelist as my Champion, and at first I died a lot. But I got the hang of using a melee character (since the tutorial character is an archer) and started really kicking ass. The first 20 minutes of the match the bots kept picking on me since I had low hp, but when I got to level 18 (Max level) and got some kick-ass gear, they started running away from me. I was amazed that anything would run from someone who just started playing.
So the game went like this. At the beginning of the game, the two sides were evenly matched. I focused on getting more gold for better gear while the other characters focused on experience. After I jumped into the fray, after collecting gold, my level was pretty low compared to others. The enemy’s champions always aimed for me.
5 deaths later I got a little sick of it and stayed back to farm some minions. Turns out that this is an easier way of obtaining gold and experience. After some farming and defending our base, I had enough gold for a sword that drained HP, boots that increased my walking speed, and armor that increased my health by 50%. All of my skills were maxed out and I headed out onto the battlefield once more. I saw an enemy champion and immediately rushed for it. After I killed her I turned my attention to the enemy’s inhibitor and quickly disabled it, allowing my base to summon superior minions. With those minions at my side we attacked the enemy’s Nexus. I took most of its HP before I was finally felled by a team of 3 of the enemy’s champions. As I waited for the respawn timer to finish, I saw that my minions were still attacking the Nexus. I applauded myself as they finished destroying the Nexus and won the game.
I think the other players didn’t know how to fully utilize equipment and skills. I think I was better off because I play a lot of RTS’s and MMO’s. But all in all, League of Legends is one of those games that’s hard to stop playing since there are both casual and competitive modes. Another factor that I really like is that there are so many champions, that you are bound to like one of them. I really like Fiora so far, and I really like her back story too.
Longest post in a while, but that’s because I really like this game.
Just downloaded it today and made my summoner. Since summoner genders are completely anonymous because your avatar is the champion that you summon, I didn’t have to worry about people judging me (lol.) NOW, Danial Hwang recommended it to me and I must say that it has a very high level of RTS strategy, something that I have never encountered in any other game besides StarCraft. It’s like Dynasty Warriors Online combined with StarCraft, except it’s good. My only problem with the game is that it isn’t clearly explained as to how I can unlock more champions to use. I want to play as Fiora and maybe twenty more of the other female champions.
