League Of Legends kicking off the new season with a Warriors cover

As League Of Legends winds up to start its tenth season on Friday, Riot Games have dropped a new anthem for the MOBA - or an old one, really. The new season's cinematic music video is a cover of Warriors, see, the iconic (and never-bested) 2014 World Championship theme by Imagine Dragons. Now the song is all grim, choral, and bwampy, like so many other…

TFT 9.24b items cheat sheet

It seems Riot just can't leave TFT alone for a few weeks before dropping a patch! The 9.24b hot-fix patch has tinkered with a couple of items that saw an increased amount of usage and were proving to be a tad too effective. There were bigger changes of course, not least of which the 3-star health stats across each champion, but the updates to Swordbreaker…

TFT 9.24 patch notes

It's been a while since the big TFT purge, but we've seen some interesting developments with the meta - mostly the dominance of a particular hyper-roll build. The next patch should be arriving within the next day or so, and there are hints that this patch will address the balance by nerfing key champions of the "Eggroll comp". Here are some things potentially coming in…

Riot Games have pulled in other studios to make games in the LoL-iverse

The other day I realised how long I'd spent in the Dota-verse. It was during my 50th hour of Dota Underlords, after 100 hours of Artifact and nearly 4000 in Dota 2. There are characters I have spent years with, albeit while treating them more as clusters of abilities than personalities. I've seen that world from half a dozen different angles, over the years, between…

Teamfight Tactics guide – TFT set 2 tips [9.23]

What is it with Teamfight Tactics and big updates? The 9.22 patch overhauled the game in such a way that it's now a completely different game.

Legends Of Runeterra already has a meta after its first preview patch

Riot’s freshly announced card game Legends Of Runeterra just finished its first testing period. Though I had some hands on with it at a preview event, it wasn’t an especially natural setting, with all the cards unlocked and a narrow pool of opponents, so I came back to investigate the Preview Patch event to see how well it stands up in its first tentative steps…

Legends of Runeterra regions – what each region is

In order to ensure there's some kind of structure in the decks that you build, Legends of Runeterra lists them into different "regions". Think of regions like the colours in Magic the Gathering, or similar ways to categorise decks in other collectable card games.

For almost ten years, Riot Games sat on League Of Legends alone, looking content with one of the biggest games in the world. Turns out, they've been busy.
