League Of Legends The Rollercoaster

League Of Legends Why I Think It's A Phenomenon And Why I Quit The Game

League Of Legends....... those 3 words make me quiver and shake while also leaving me with a bundle of memories I will never forget. This game has provided me with joy and lust for victory however I fell short many times. This is the story of the start of my League journey and the bitter ending.

How I Got Into League

I was at my cousins house one day and I saw him playing an interesting game. He watched me stare alongside him fascinated with the moba (multiplayer online battle arena) and when I got home I downloaded it straight away unprepared that I would spend at least eight months playing it.

The Ability Of League

To say League Of Legends is a game is partially correct. Why? Because the other half is like a virtual simulator. Newbies get hit with the stunning visuals and it offers such a hands-on experience. This game has the perfect mix of simplicity and complication. It's easy you have four abilities and you move but the game has so much more than that! Unlike it's predecessors (before games) Hon and Dota league had captivated everyone around me (well where I live). At school everyone talk about Call Of Duty and GTA but League got its fair share as well, considering that it was a Pc game is pretty impressive.

More Than Just A Game

Whenever you finished a game of league there was more and I mean a lot more. This pc game has this ability that when you finish you just want more. And it didn't disappoint! Multiple youtube channels featuring gameplay and on top of it all....... Reddit. One of the best communities on the internet I've ever seen. Yeah sure there is some negativity but most of it is positive and it's amazing how so many people can share views all over the internet with such a humorous and feel good vibe. Sure there are many other reddit sites but the league of legends one is a class above them all. This ability for league to captivate my imagination while offering merchandise, a great community and multiple youtube channels was incredible to say the least I can see why so many people are attracted too it.

My Problems With The Game In General

One of the main problems I had was...... time. On average a normal 5v5 league game would usually set me back 40 minutes and I just didn't have that. I was always on the move and going to my friend's house plus my parents didn't appreciate that I was spending my free time on a game and would tell me to shut it after only 1 hour. But one of the most crippling things was...... doing absolutely insane and destroying your lane opponent only for your team to stuff up and ruin it ALL. I definitely have had my fair share of blunders but the pain I felt every time I lost because of that 1 bad player or that 1 person that disconnects caused me to have so much agony I felt as if every time I moved 1 step forward I got knocked 3 steps back.


It felt as if every time I was on a winning streak I would have a losing streak straight after. However the biggest problem was every time I won time it was if I could  fly for a minute but every time I lost it felt like an hour of misery. I'm a very competitive person and I don't take losing very well but in spite of that I always lost. Maybe it was me it probably was but I couldnt find any way to enhance my skills as I was always good enough to hold my own, for example have a decent score 8 kills 7 deaths but not many times I could find the carrying mentality to put all my teammates on my back and take them all along the journey of victory.


I know one thing, this system they called ranked has caused heartache to at least everyone at level 30. Almost every day there was at least 1 person on reddit that talked about ranked or solo-q and most of the time it was a complaint. I am no different I think ranked was one of the driving factors in my quitting as league and here's why. I was playing my placement matches and I think you need about 6 wins to get to silver. I definitely wanted to get there was....... bronze is so called league hell. As I got into matches I went L/L/W/L/W and most of the time it was my teammates not playing bad just that I always got the person that disconnected. It felt as if league of legends had something against me and wanted me to fall flat on my face. Sure they don't know who will disconnect but I'm telling you if there was someone that disconnected in the game that person was definitely on my team in ranked.

League Of Legends My Top 5 Favorite Champions

My Top 5 Favorite Champions ATM

Btw: The stories i'm telling are mostly normal games as I seem to play when I can just play freely and have no pressure *ranked :(*
5. Amumu: This is the first champion I ever played and luckily I picked the right one. Amumus ability to tank through damage while dealing even more is amazing. This champion is very special as it has always come up at the top of the win rate charts after being nerfed, time after time after time.

4. Miss Fortune: Miss Fortune is very special to me. It was very early into my league career and I was looking for an adc to main. Luckily Miss Fortune popped up on free week and ever since then I have never looked back. Ever since the 1st time I started playing her she just has this simplicity about her while dealing heaps of damage. I am a bit worried about ranked but whenever I play mf they all go away.

3. Lee Sin: I think this champ is in everyone's list. He's incredible. Even though his moves seem simple together while comboed well it is really deadly. His early game power is probably one of the best in the league but his late game leaves a little to be desired. But ins't there a saying, Great early game means even greater leate game. I have a lot of good memories tearing up the battlefield with Lee while also making dazzling escapes with his W.

2. Akali This champion entered my attention when I was on a bit of a losing streak. Struggling to find that one champion luckily just like Mf Akali popped up. And I still remember my debut day with Akaki, 3 wins back to back it was amazing. The momentum I felt while playing this champion has carried me to quite a few memorable wins.

1. Katarina Just who doesn't like this champion, Oh wait! The adcs that im incinerating. The exhilaration I feel whenever I play Kat, it's as if your playing need for speed. You just wanna atk and atk and whenever you are cornered you just E out. My backstory with kat, well I was looking for an assassin since I love that high mobility (I'm pretty active irl) while dealing sustained damage. And the jukes and plays you can make while playing kat is really satisfying. Katarina was one of the first few champions I owned and I've never looked back ever since.

Thank you everyone for reading. I will be returning to League Of Legends on the Oceanic Server on Friday. Till then Have Fun Summoners :).

League Of Insight: Class Above Everyone Else

Have you ever gotten that one player who is a class above everyone else. The person who after carrying the team their match history is littered with amazing performances. This is what I like to call being a class above everyone else. Now I certainly do not posses this ability but I know multiple friends that do. Every time I party up with them they are always the same, dominating their opposition with any champion they play.

Aura Every time I play with these type of friends it is as if they have an aura about them . I remember multiple games when I was playing with these players and we were getting hammered. But these special players stood up when the whole team was down and always gave that glimmer of hope. When ever you saw one person stand up it provided you belief that victory was actually possible.

Always Standing After a stirring comeback victory or a narrow lose sometimes I like to check the match history of the carriers. And when you see a consistent K/D throughout every game that is impressive. I ask my friends a lot, when a game is lost do I just troll and they do not reply in lane, they just focus on farming cs trying to catch up and when they base they reply " I can carry guys do not worry". It is that reply that makes the whole team just lift.

Words With Actions I have been trying to work on this myself. Most of pals that I play with unless they are on skype they do not speak in team chat during the laning phase unless they are asked a direct question. They say this helps them keep focus while avoiding any flaming. Yes sure team communication is vital however actions are louder than words.

That is the article thanks for reading guys/girls. I will be working on more league of legends content but I will try provide some more variety like minecraft and other games.

Assassins And The Nerfs

This is a very quick explanation of why assassins are always nerfed. Hopefully there will be a part 2 on this but this is one of the main reasons in my opinion why assassins always get shot down.

1. Riot has this ideology that the way to curve assassins is to make them super weak early. However weakness early game will always be ineffective if that champion has a strong kit with overpowered mid game stats. Of course they are going to snowball, if they just trade in an average early game for an overpowered mid game which in turn of course makes that assassin broken late game.

So to sum up in these brief dot points is why assassins are broken.
  •  Average early game- Snowballing Mid Game
  • Kit is too versatile almost all assassins kit has some sort of strong unique gameplay to them
  • No scaling no problem base damage is high to cover that cost.
All in all I hope this article has shed a bit of light on the assassins. It disappoints me when a champion is constantly changed *cough cough Katarina*. At least one high burst character is always nerfed in every patch. However I am still trying to figure out my self how to balance Assassins so this is one very hard job for the Riot balancing team.

Anyways that is the article please share and bookmark if you liked it and feel free to check out my other blog http://inperspective1.blogspot.com.au/ cheers and have a good day :).
