This is where you can read any of my irregular wafflings about computer gaming. The whole point of this blog is to help motivate me to properly finish games, whether they be recent ones or older ones I played when I was younger that I never managed to beat.
14th October 2012 - I'll Never Be A Legend
Just yesterday had my first real games of League Of Legends with the Scoob. I'd seen a few games of this on Youtube and let me tell you, those players on there make it look a lot easier than it is. Before these games I had only played the tutorial and one game against bots that my team got slaughtered in. This time I had the Scoob on hand to help out. He uses Ashe and can kick some candy, but I'd still got no unlocked champion so picked Twitch of the free ones to try out. We both hit top lane thinking we'd do well together, but this hampered us as we could not farm the minions that well. However we slowly ground the enemy team down and managed a win.
In the second game I went with Pantheon, thinking a close combat dude would better compliment Scoob's champ. However I found it even harder to kill minions, and his ultimate attack has got such a massive delay on it that the enemies just kept getting out of the way. Couple this with the fact that my second computer crashed, kicking Scoob out of the game for a few minutes until he could re-connect. We were really on the back foot. Scoob was around 4 levels down by the time he got back in and the enemies were overwhelming our meagre defences. We managed to push into their base, and Scoob and I were taking down their Nexus when they took ours. Oh well.
In the tutorials I'd used a champ called Ryze, so I decided to unlock him as my first champ and try and figure out how to use him. We had a third and deciding match up, where I did very little but harass the enemy, while Scoob led our troops to another victory.
Had a good run for a while with Twitch...
...until Annie shut me down
My first LoL win. Ignore that it was only against bots
Didn't get on well with Pantheon
For a simple looking game this thing has got a serious learning curve. It's probably gonna take a lot more time than I'm willing to throw at it to get any good, but it should be alright for a little group-up with me mates every now and then. I'll definitely never get good enough to do PvP against random other people, and really don't fancy facing all that bitching and whining that goes on.
