Just an observation but lol is going to take the number 1 spot for MLG and other types of competitive gaming if it already has not. Just by the prize money for some of the events, it is obvious I think

Would like to see halo come back

I don't really have the time to play it much, but DOTA 2 is better.
I can manage my anger if people can manage their stupidity.

Yeah, but because Dota 2 just officially launched, it could grow bigger than LoL. Not this year, obviously. But it is possible.

I know this is improper, but Noctan, do you want to contribute in Historical mafia at some point? Our mod seems MIA, so he can't prode you to play, and there are only four players.
My work here is, finally, done.

We should make a LOL team, there are some smart people on this website. I'm sure we could pull together a semi-decent team.

Smart =/= good. I'd been down for some DDO 5s though. What division are you in and what lane do you play?

Starcraft is still really high up there
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

SerenityOfChaos;

just started playing ranked...

My ping is unusually large for an NA server, though, it is 300, unlike the 180s I've been experiencing. Makes combos hard to pull off, I can still play half-decently with the likes of Fizz or TF.

It is free to play. You can spend money to unlock new heroes, or 'Champions', faster, but you don't have to spend money. I played for free for years before spending a few bucks on skins (character remodels that have no pragmatic value).

Also as a status update: I just hit Diamond 3. I 2-0'd my promotional series and got a pentakill in the first game.

I've played league before. I was around 1830 elo ranking. Then I found Dota 2, which I personally like better. I might play again for old times. I played a mean jungle Nocturne.
I can manage my anger if people can manage their stupidity.

Why do you spam every league thread with how much you love DotA 2?

I'm not. This isn't just a league thread. This is a competitive gaming thread. And you guys are one to talk. It's not the game itself I don't really like, it's the community. But anyway if a team is actually made that'd be interesting.

Was the thread titled "League of Legends" in the entertainment forums not a league thread?

Leagues of Legends and competitive gaming is what the thread is called here. You may have misread. Anyway, assuming this is a pure League thread with this title is illogical. There were people talking about StarCraft a little bit, why aren't you commenting towards them?
