    I haven't played anything in Ranked yet, I'm lvl 30 but still slowly learning and working my way up.
    I've heard it's really important you have a good start in ELO, or you'll end up in ELO hell before you know it. So I'm training and just playing all champs before I make the move :)

    Yesterday I played Draft Pick for the first time, and I'm very positive about it! The 2 matches were really fun, NO flaming going on, NO instalocking, NO spamming 'top adc jungle' from the very second you get in the lobby (I like this, hate those spammers who than whine 'me first'). They lasted well over 40 minutes each, and my team won both! Really, promotion for the game.

    In one of those games I got a QUADRA KILLLLLL, with Riven! The fifth one was Yi, just too damn fast :'( I could have easily killed him, but just too damn fast.
    Sad to see they are nerfing Riven though, I've only played 15 games with her and just now really got the hang of her :(

    It seems to be similar to that of SC. Haven't played SC so I can't say if this is better or not. But I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Niiiice. I do like Riven as well, she my main for top lane.
    Its a great thing to get good teams in Ranked.
    Hmmm i'm just trying to raise my elo for the preseason, so that i get put in a good division when they change it.
    Elo was broken and i'm gald its being scrapped

    Hmmm... seems they're following CoD with the new ranked update. BO2 added ranked playlists and it's set up with divisions, just like this.

    So I played a bit of LoL. Randomly saw Ahri and she's probably the only reason I even did. I gotta say I like a few of the champions on LoL. If it played like Smite i'd probably play it all damn day every day.
    Ahri is pretty fun to play as, and once I stopped building physical for some retarded reason, I actually started doing preeeetty decent considering it was my first match in months. Doesn't help I got shoved into mid (my fault for picking a mid champ I guess). Wasn't really expecting that, I usually hate mid in Smite because nobody calls missing >.>;; (well when I mid anyway)

    Only problem I have with LoL is it's slow. My god, nothing happens for ages. Yet for some reason matches don't last much longer than Smite. Can't figure that one out.

    Was going to try and see if I could get into DOTA2 again, but the hero list just bores the crap out of me. I can't even think of one to play, they all look equally uninteresting.



    Anyway, did have a purpose here since people seem to like LoL.
    Can anyone recommend any female casters other than Ahri? I sorta looked at some, like LeBlanc and...forgot the other one. But i'm not really sure who's good or not, and I don't see any way to test champs before I get them, unless they're on free rotation.
    Actually really any female (yes i'm going to be picky like that) with good DPS (or burst) would be fine, but I primarily like casters with the traditional MOBA style. Melee just doesn't feel as "right" anymore.

    Yup pretty slow at times, first 15 mins most of the time. It can get a bit boring then yeah.

    I think Lux and Annie are really good burst champs, especially Annie with her stun + Ulti.
    Oh Brand, one of the champs with the highest burst potential. Amazing stuff, check him out!
    Akali is similar to Ahri too.
    Diana and Katarina are mid too, haven't played them though, but have played plenty of times against them. Are very strong sometimes, especially Katarina :blink:

    quoting you again.

    It's kinda old, but this is what I was talking about http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/10i3sx/so_you_thought_dota2_was_getting_large/
    though i'm not 100% sure since I can't read chinese. and I'm also not talking about just total games played, but there are several dota clients.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    My SC2 is collecting dust, probably come back to it when HotS comes out.

    My SC2 profile: US Server

    I don't play any dota or any variant.


    You can find me on Diablo 3 US server: here
    If you want help on Diablo 3, like getting a hellfire ring, make sure you have Infernal Machines.

    Played 8 LoL games today, all with Leona. I've won 80% of games with her so far, normals though. Good stuff, sometimes. I really need to keep playing and watching my position sometimes though.
    Sometimes I'm just pushing a lane just to save a turret, and I just get caught out. Or just in that moment a teamfight breaks out. Pretty frustrating, for both me and the others of my team

    I have been playing a ton of League still. I am level 22 now, still playing mainly Xin Zhao and Teemo. I had a game a few days ago that was ridiculously fun and easy and I ended up with 37 kills and 7 deaths.

    Also, it takes a lot longer to get to level 30 than I thought it would. I wanted to get there for season 3 but I didn't play for a few months and it never happened.
