  1. Come watch my stream I am cool I promise twitch.tv/laidbackmarco
  2. league of legends

    Yes but they buffed his ap ratios so now no one is ready for my new ekko build that I'm experimenting with ROA, into triforce, frozen heart, sorc shoes<-- due to nerf on swiftys, an mr item, and void staff . EVIL LAUGHS!!
  3. I like teaching new people this game and playing with newer people helps me realize how far I've come! I recommend playing all sorts of characters until you get to level 30 and then picking one person based on your playstyle and learning all of their matchups and specific lane mechanics before expanding!
  4. league of legends

    I regularly play and run a stream I would love to keep the community going here! I made an ekko post a long time ago about how hype I was and now he's one of my top played! Although he's always banned now!
  5. On the road to plat now guys!! currently streaming

  9. Thanks for being so kind I haven't streamed the past week due to moving into a new home but the stream will be up next week for sure!
  10. I have some league videos but the quality is bad I'm buying a new computer at the end of this summer so that should help?
  11. Fun stuff! I can't wait to run this in a duo lane!!
  12. I am glad we are seeing a support champion though being a support main and all. . . but honestly I see myself trolling my friends with this guy perhaps his ult should show and omw ping like pantheons so you know where he is going?
  13. Yeah I don't think the LoL community is small they are either A busy playing their own games or B to lazy or forget to come to the website to give us their two cents. . . I think all we need is more publicity and a charismatic/enthusiatic leader
  14. Yeah but I think the duration of his untargetability <-- (is this a word?) is managable compared to fiora, zed, and fizz it seems on par with lissandra in terms of balance We'll have to see how it plays out tough I feel like he'll get nerfed quickly if he's too strong it will be interesting to see how this utility assassin fits into the tank meta though
  15. So A New Champion Has Come Out and Riot Is doing a better and better Job of Promoting the Hype for new Characters unveiling a new CG Cutscene as well as a preview of his abilities too keep our arms and legs safely aboard the hype train. So what is in store for league of legends. . . only time will tell. ^i'll try to keep the time puns to a minimum but tbh I really can't help it First I'll Give My Thoughts on the Animation that they have released Here is a Link to It If you haven't Seen It Yet The cel shaded art style they decided to go with reminds me of the way the walking dead/ boarderlands was done with strong inking lines its a good style imo. It seems like they compositied traditionally 2d animated smoke and particle effects which gives a great over the top anime feel to it. Riot Continues to amaze me with the large amount of skill and talent they have making their CG cut-scenes and as always they do an amazing job of making the champions we know and love. . . or get to know come to life. This short combines fantastic pacing, art style, and sound design while focusing on what makes this champion unique. There Has Been Speculation That Vi, Jinx, and Ekko were all part of the same Gang and this could be where their hangout was the blue haired girl on this Wall Resembles Jinx. Who Ekko Had a Crush On The beginning of the video starts off showing a wall of memories/graffiti with Ekko giving a monologue about time which is his unique game play dynamic. . . When he talks about wanting more time as in days, months, and years it really showcases how much actual time, no pun intended, was put into his character design, because to me everything Ekko says in the introduction, helped by fantastic voice-acting, really carries a deeper meaning. He eventually talks about seconds which is the title of the short and holds a big emphasis both in the video and in league of legends where in high level play seconds are sometimes the deciding factor in team-fights. A Battle Of Strength Vs. Speed, Agility, and Wits The fight in the short showcases both Ekko's nimble, scrappy, and smart fighting/play style, but his ultimate as well which might be the coolest part about the character. Ekko smartly picks apart at this excuse my language "mechanized bane looking mother fucker" by cutting at his opponents weaknesses while at the same time using his rewind feature every time he ends up injured due to making a mistake. It's important to highlight that in game and in the video he is only partially healed for the damage he takes in fights. At the end we see into more of who Ekko is, because although he lives in Zaun he's not much of a punk as he rewinds time to preserve the wall . . . perhaps the wall is not only a physical representation of Ekko but a symbol to the time he has been alive and his memories as well. "Yuh Dun Fucked it Up"- Angry Joe Once Again Ekko says something deep to wrap up the video "if you can't make the most out of any given moment. . . you don't deserve an extra scond". . . which is true in everyday life and is something I'm trying to live by because you never know what day might be your last. Now onto the in game preview and leaked PBE info I've gathered I'll start of With the Character Design Being A Fan Of Mohawks, and Having One Myself Ekko Gets Bonus Points In My book Ekko's visual design reminds me a lot of the bastion and transistor series and shares the same designer who created Jinx, Gnar, and Vi. His unique hair style and some what cyberpunk/steampunk design really matches his character's attitude,his pride for Zaun, and his disgust with authority and Piltover. Riot did a great job of making sure even his reveal page tell's you something about the character Being one of the newer champions in the league there is a lot of lore which Ekko must fit into and they do a better job than most champions making sure that he fits into the established world for instance this character is so detailed that his idle animations, particle effects, and even his interactions with other champions have allusions to the in game lore. . . He the most well voice acted lines I've seen in a champion yet and makes me hope riot will update some of the older . . . and not that old champions to have to have the same amount of voice acted lines. I mean his taunts are actually taunts making fun of certain champions. . . and similar to jinx has special interactions with piltover and zaun champions. Ekko has something to say about everything and is the first champion that I'm aware of that says things when buying certain items the attention to detail astounds me. Ekko's Dance Actually Has Him Emulating Guitar Noises Ekko's personality is that of a young punk rock loving adult who is rebelling against society and vies for individualism . . . while he dislikes authority and society and razes hell every now and then he doesn't seem evil like the likes of urgot and some of the other notorious Zaunites its seems he is more of an anti-hero. Which makes me really like him. . . because I'm a weird person who likes back stories and lore in even MOBA games. Mind You these are speculations and opinions of what Ekko Could be like and I will Make another article after fiddling with him Shifting onto the game play aspect. . . Ekko is a melee ranged AP Utility Assassin who makes use of both his passive slow and speed boost in combination with his active slows. . . stuns basic attacks and spells in order to make an impact in fights. Ekko's Passive, Z-Drive Resonance, is similar to Gnar's W Passive, but ekkos passive slows as well, this utility can be used offensively to stick to targets or defensively to peel back keep in mind that Ekko's damaging spells proc this so all it takes is 1 spell rotation to proc it without auto attacks Ekko's Q , Timewinder, will be the standard bread and butter for harassing enemies similar to Ahri this skillshot does more damage on its return trip. . . while reading the Ekko design notes they said that before he could chose when the q came back which is sad to hear because I would have enjoyed that mechanic Ekko's W Parallel Convergence has a strong passive effect which makes it dangerous to stay around ekko when having low health and the active packs monsterous range and an aoe slow/stun that also give ekko a Big shield. . . characters with shields make some nasty outplays. . . that is some riven level shielding with the large ap ratio what ekko is going to be building anyways Ekko's E is a combination of both a dash and a blink that deals bonus damage and obviously since its an auto proc on hit effects if ekko builds enough cdr he could be a tough man to get away from or to catch because It is possible to auto attack minions and jungle creeps with the empowered auto Ekko's R is what is going to make or break most players. . . the heal, untargetability and damage are great and have good scaling but a well timed ultimate could catch enemies of guard if he ults into a parallel convergence stunning the enemies inside What I'm interested in seeing is where Ekko is capable of going and what builds he is capable of pulling of successfully. I'd like to try him in all lanes and in the jungle and try him with different builds AP bruiser, tanky, glass cannon, hybrid builds perhaps? You never know. . . they built fizz ad time will tell. . . How would you build Ekko?? Leave Your Comments Below Image Taken From http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Ekko http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/champion-reveal/ekko-boy-who-shattered-time
  16. Hello All I'm a bad gamer who makes bad videos about games I'm bad at please leave me some feedback I'd like to better myself in creating content but that's hard when I don't know what is wrong thanks!!
  17. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1IjUgBDud4 Here is a Preview of his login screen I'm about to experiment with him and different builds I'll Keep posting more stuffs
  18. What Took Place at the meeting???
  19. Alright I'll send you some of my ideas but we definatly have more publicity some how I'll think of some ideas and shoot them at you later
  20. Perhaps if they just made his passive when he autos speed him up and slow the enemy for a short duration that would make him slightly more unique
  21. He has special interactions with Zilean When Taunting Zilean or when Zilean revives him with his ultimate!
  22. Dang I'll be busy this saturday!!! We should try to meet more regularly though!!
  23. Hey guys I did this for a school project I don't think i'm important enough for an autobigraphy but I was in a dark place in my life and it was my counselers idea that I review my life and find a reason to live again here it is Love You All Try To keep the criticism nice but pleasantly said I'm a fragile sensitive flower.
  24. I used to not like it, but now as i see is as an opportunity for me to make my stream and gameplay higher quality. . . I guess you can look at things two ways
  25. Dang he was one of my favorite players because of his work ethic its sad to see him go I already knew he was leaving but its nice to see someone else in the angry army shares my feels
