This League Of Legends player’s mispress turned into a crab-powered victory

Hitting the wrong hotkey during a MOBA is usually cause for great embarrassment and disparagement. For one lucky League Of Legends team recently, a slip-up miraculously turned into swift and accidental victory. League player "MarviAkaMarv" this week shared a cracking little video of a surprising win that came about after accidentally summoning a giant monster when they meant to do something far more mundane. It…

Valorant launches with a new map, mode and Agent this June

If you're like me, you'll have been eyeing up Valorant with some curiosity - interested, yet never quite getting around to lurking streams for beta access. It'll come as good news, then, that Riot are about to open the floodgates to their superpowered tactical shooter, resetting accounts and shutting off servers next Thursday ahead of a full release on June 2nd.

Feature: How to dominate as any of the ten Valorant characters on offer

Valorant characters guide: all agents and abilities in Valorant explained

Valorant's cast of characters is the game's most pivotal departure from the Counter-Strike formula with which the rest of Riot's tactical shooter bears so much resemblance. Each of the 10 Valorant agents differs from the rest in their four unique abilities, which must be used tactfully and precisely if you want to turn the tide of battle. Our Valorant characters guide will walk you through…

It sounds nice, which is good because it seems like Riot are looking to…

League Of Legends brings back Pick URF today and starts the Pulsefire event

The wacky Pick URF mode returns to League Of Legends tonight for another few weeks, once again turbocharging wizards' abilities for intense MOBA murders. It's pretty popular. Today's also the start of Pulsefire 2020, a timecop-themed event with missions, cosmetic rewards, new paid skins, and a messy blast of other loot.

Omen is Valorant’s best trickster

Omen lurks. He wriggles into unexpected corners, preying on those that don't pay enough attention. He's my favourite gun wizard in Valorant, Riot's new FPS. The whole point of him is to disrupt, to confuse, to unsettle. He is a patient trickster.Or at least, I thought he was. Other people have been playing him far more aggressively, and I am both jealous and concerned.

Riot have banned nearly 9000 Valorant cheaters

How many Valorant cheaters does it take to change a light bulb? Just one Phoenix, and he'll do it in a flash. Haha. But no, let's be serious. Riot have dropped the ban hammer on 8873 cheaters in their new guns 'n' wizards FPS, and say "this banwave is still only the beginning". It seems like all that (possibly!) over-invasive anti-cheat software is paying off.

Runeterra’s 1.1 patch blasts many more bugs

Like a baby hermit crab scuttling towards its first big new shell, Legends Of Runeterra left early access two weeks ago. At 5:30pm today (9:30am Pacific), Riot's card 'em up will climb into an even better one with patch 1.1. The new patch won't change much, apart from splatting a whole bunch of bugs still crawling over the new cards. Or around the old new…

Feature: Beep is death

The beeping of the bomb is one of Valorant’s best tricks

Beep. I'm the only one left alive, so everything is about to be my fault. Beep. The enemy has planted the Spike, and I know I don't have long to defuse it. Beep beep. It's guarded by three enemy gun wizards, but they can only watch one angle each. Beep beep. I've got a chance. Beep. I start moving. Beep beep. I jump around a…

Feature: Maximise your chances of victory before the match has even begun

Valorant team comps guide: how to create the best possible team

It might be a bit reductive to say that many Valorant matches are won or lost before the first round even begins, but it's a nice, pithy way of saying "pay attention to your team composition, people", so I'm gonna use it. If your thought process for picking your agent at the start of the match boils down to always picking your favourite or most…

Feature: Tasty jerky

Legends Of Runeterra review

"Games are a series of interesting decisions". That Sid Meier quote has been floating around for nearly a decade, and writing it out nowadays can seem pat. "Of course they are!", you might say, or possibly "of course they're not!". Personally, I find it a helpful way of thinking about why I enjoy most of the games I play. Generally speaking, the more interesting the…

Feature: All the cards!

Runeterra card guide: every region’s cards explained

Legends of Runeterra is a card game and that means there's a lot of cards that are all sorted into different groups.

Runeterra keywords guide: definitions of all the abilities

Legends of Runeterra has a lot of skills and abilities hidden on each of their cards via the use of keywords.
