I don't see why there's a need to be ragging on Otmer at all TBH
Neither do I :( I mean, I've just found out that apparently, Helios doesn't carry the sun around the sky?! Don't kick a man when he's down!
What the hell is going on in this thread? Anyway, just wanted to apologise to RPS chaps for not being on for anything other than bot matching my fwotd, been playing more DOTA 2 instead, not too thrilled with a few things Riot are doing right now. And I wanted to post this youtube series for those of you who asked about DOTA 2 and might be interested in checking it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vOad...hannel&list=UL . That should cover quite a lot of the awkwardness you get jumping from one to the other :)
Good at hear from ya! A few of us have keys for DOTA2 (I picked up 1 from Rezzed) and I've had a dabble, it's interesting and different enough but I don't think it'll ever take over from League for me ;-) Add me and steam and we'll have a game some time!
What's your beef with Riot btw? ;-)
Yea, Dota2's not for me either. Just strikes me that they've made such an outdated game in the name of sating the people who still play DotA.
Riot still employ Phreak, that's a massive reason to have beef with them :P
The level of polish and attention to detail DOTA 2 has is just... valve like. And for anyone with even remote interest towards e-sports it's a great game to follow!
So I guess I'm hooked now. I'm Simmura in game, EU west.
And then there's the constant erosion of power for supports, which is my favourite role, from the incremental nerfs to champions, the itemisation (currently on the PBE gp10 items are nerfed which will likely go live) to Morello this week outright saying they're not making more than two support champions a year because they don't sell, having released Lulu in a state that makes her unpickable competitively because there's always another support champion that does what she does but better.
It really feels like Riot are moving towards Blizzard's hellish model of balance where they pull levers with no idea what's attached at the other end and produce a never ending rollercoaster of buffs and nerfs, and LoL was where I went to escape that. Riot don't even have an intelligent theorycrafting community to keep them in check like Blizzard do. /rant
On DOTA 2, yes the design feels dated and it's really obnoxious to learn all its little quirks like which magic magic immunity doesn't make you immune to(!). But everything is dialled up to 11, so it's heaps of fun at the same time, I recommend giving it some time to acclimatise to the bullshit because there's a really good game further along the learning curve.
At least on the champions I'm familiar with (which is not many) the buffs and nerfs they've been doing seem to make sense (and I'm not just saying that because they buffed two of my most-played champions in the last patch, okay, maybe a little).
Their major balance changes seem to come all at once but only every so often, so it's not quite a constant stream of them.
Sorry if I'm bumping a dead thread, but some friends have just got me into this game and I was looking for more sane EUW players and this seems as good a place as possible to ask. I'm Autopanda on there as well.
I'm still surprised a PC gaming site this big has like 20 LoL players on the EUW servers. We are a fun bunch to play with and we don't bite (except Sarigs, who probably also has rabies, so be careful of that).
Have my reasons
