    Damm, I think this is refreshing to see, as many of the LoL players are not happy with the game (in it's current state). Thank you for reminding me of the amount of time and effort I have put into this game, and the friends it has made me. I think my life would be 10 times worse than it is right now, if league had not been in it. Thank you Riot Games.

    They make one fuckin' video game, keep it alive and one of the most popular PC games for 5 years now and earn billions off of it and make it one of the biggest E-sports.
     Impressive.

    Riot Games are celebrating 10 years


    http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/announcements/thank-you
     
     
    It's been 10 years since the foundation of Riot Games. They created one of the biggest PC games ever, that reached the population that no game has ever:  About 2 years ago, the game had a population of 12 million PER DAY and 32 million unique players per month and now has around 70 million players. The game grew in immense speed and broke many records and became the most popular PC game of all time. (current popularity wise)
     
    I spent 1,200 hours in it myself and I must say, me and League have a love and hate relationship. I don't play it anymore. I got tired of playing it. I think 1000h is too much for me and I've had my share of fun. I would recommend this game to anyone! There is a reason I spent a 1000h in it and I rarely do that with any game. I think I met more friends in this game than I met in any other video game ever, combined even. Hell my friend list used to be max around 35-40, but I used to play actively every day with at least 10 people.
     
    It's a game that made rise to the MOBA genre and first standalone MOBA game, inspired by original DOTA, a Warcraft 3 mod. Before I played the game myself, I was just one of those haters that always thought, "Why the fuck is this game so popular?" Honestly, it's just a fun video game. That's it...
    And it offers so much content and good competitive system for people who are into that.
     
     
    But as time passed on, Riot made many great, but also tons of bad decisions. In last year or 2, specially since season 5, Riot took the game into a direction that stopped pleasing and giving me fun. With release of Dynamic Queue, I thought I would have even more fun in ranked, but it turns out I just stopped caring, specially after seeing most of my friendlist who used to stuck in silver or gold are now plat-diamond in just a few months, due to everyone getting boosted. Solo Q returned to Diamond and above, but i have no desire to put that much effort to get there. Nonetheless, it's still a great game and I would recommend it to anyone.
     
    Not only  that, but it's a video game that inspired me for some reason to try out other genres like MMORPGs, ARPGs and such.
     
    I think you can see how much Riot Games and the game evolved visually alone, from trailers to screenshots
    2010 Launch Trailer
     
    And the 2014 cinematic trailer above^^^^
     Hell, it's been 2 years since release of  that cinematic and it looked so damn good.
     
     
    The game 2010

     
    The game now

     
     
     
     
     
     
    Splasharts 2010 vs 2016 (Katarina for example)


     
     
     
    Old client

     
     
    Current client

     
     
    Up coming client (removal of Launcher too apparently)


     
     
     
     
    And to this day, game is getting reworks of old splash arts and old champions, new effect changes, balancing, patches, new champions and is still going super strong. Hasn't slowed down a bit.
     
    I'm glad I was part of the experience and I had my huge share of fun in this game, but it's time to turn a new page. I might play it ocassioaly, but I have no more interest in it competitively as I used to
     
     
     
     
     
    If you've been playing the game actively lately, you will get Kayle and Riot Kayle skin for free. If you own both of these, you will get a mystery gift instead and players who for some reason can't recieve mystery gifts, will recieve RP that's worth as much as a mystery gift. Also you will get a special icon.
     
     
     
     
    Thank you Riot for putting me through a 100 different emotions with just one game. It was a thrilling and a fun ride!

    Yo, I'd like to sign up as well, but do not look at any of my games past past labout 15-16. The rest of the games have been me on tilt and trying a lot of wack stuff with Rengar (Different builds, masteries, rune pages, etc) that that is why my win rate is pretty bad. 
  5. adpop liked a post in a topic by RavenKitsune in July 1v1 Feedback   
    I personally like it on summoners rift, and howling abyss is switching power picks all together, AOE champions are really good there considering how small the lane is. 
  6. adpop liked a post in a topic by RavenKitsune in Gift for all lol players   
    So I don't know about all of you who try to improve but something that helps me is motivational videos. To me League is a lot about mindset so here's a gift for all of you to help ya out  
  7. adpop liked a post in a topic by TheDycer in League of Legends 1v1 Tournament EVENT   
    I will check in the morning. 
    Yes, the streamed matches will be in spectator mode. Casting will be done by Titan and possibly a co-host yet to be named.
    RP codes will be messaged to through this forum, an email, twitter, or any form of communication that will show proof once the transaction is complete. The easiest way to do the cash transfer is through paypal. If you need a money order/check sent to you, I will give Titan the money and make him do it. I would heavily suggest using Paypal. It is cheaper, easier and faster for both parties.

    Some extra information that can be helpful:
    So the easiest way to sign up is drop your League of Legends in game in this thread. This also allows us to easily add you to the club. 
    If you are a low level player in LoL, and are afraid of playing in the tournament, you can still take part and help out. We will need a few observers that can hop into a match up and watch if any of the issues happen in the post above. If there are no issues, you just show and have fun watching people try to kill each other on stream.
    Practicing: Queuing mid in dynamic and playing the game is not always the best practice. The playstyle it takes to win a 1v1 can easily lose you many games in the mid lane. I would recommend practicing every now and then with other people in the club. I also wouldn't mind hoping onto the rift for a few 1v1s. I won't be playing in the tournament, but I have a lot of experience in 1v1s, and can pass on my knowledge to willing participants. 
  9. adpop liked a post in a topic by TheTitan in League of Legends 1v1 Tournament EVENT   
    I would like to take a moment and welcome you to the AJSA NA League of Legends 1v1 Tournament. The inaugural tournament will be hosted on July 10, 2016 at 6pm Est. There will be 16 spots available in this tournament. Prizes will be handed out for first through fourth place finishes:
    1st place wins $75 2nd place wins $50 3rd place wins a 3500 RP code 4th place wins a 1380 RP code  
    To sign up for the tournament you have to be apart of the AJSA League of Legends Club and respond in the forum announcement with your in-game name. Seeding will be randomized Check in will be at 5:30 pm Est in the club chat. If you are not present by 5:45 pm Est your spot will be forfeited to the reserve list. The opening rounds of the tournament will be single match ups. The semifinals and finals will be best of three.
    Match Rules: The 1v1 matches will be played on Summoner’s Rift (in the mid lane) and the win conditions are first blood, first tower or first to 100 CS. Selections, Early Rounds: The selection process will include a “chat ban” phase before a blind pick during the opening rounds of the tournament. During this process each contestant can ban up to 3 champions. This ensures nobody has an unfair advantage in the single match ups. Selections, Finals: The semifinals and finals will have a draft phase. There will be a coin toss to determine the order in which sides will be picked in the best of three. Winning: Once any win condition is reached, both participants take a screenshot of the scoreboard to submit for review if your game is not being streamed. If the score board is suspicious, the match up will be replayed with an observer. Suspicious scoreboards include reaching 100 CS before 9.5 minutes into the match which is the realistic threshold for 100 CS without missing a minion. Global Bans: The following list of champions are unfair to play against and currently have absurd win rates (54%+) while maintaining an unhealthy ban rate (30%+). This list is subject to change; Malzahar, Swain. Streaming: Games will be broadcast on https://www.twitch.tv/thetitan18 and/or https://www.twitch.tv/ajsagaming. Every semifinals and finals match up will be broadcast. Broadcast match ups in the opening rounds will be chosen at random and participants will be informed if they are selected. Non-broadcast Matches: All Non-broadcast matches in the first round have to be underway by 6:20 pm Est. All Non-broadcast matches in the second round have to be underway by 7:20 pm Est. This allows for remake time if necessary. Disconnects, Hardware Failure, and Bugs: In the event of any of these situations, the game will be remade if neither side has hit 60 CS. If one side has hit 60 CS, the CS delta has to be under 15 for a remake if the player affected is behind. If a remake is the outcome, the game will have an observer, and has to launch within 5 minutes of the decision. If this happens two times to one player in a match, that player will forfeit that match.
  10. adpop liked a post in a topic by Hashirama Senju in Where does this game get all the hype from?   
    The snarky answer to your main question would be: The game got it from Colin Johanson, The Hype Train.
     
    That out of the way, I'm sorry to hear about your story of players still going 'gtfo of here fggt'. I'm still surprised that the game still has that amount of player vindictiveness even in low level places like Queensdale, your starting area. I would say that either that particular player is being an idiotic bastard, or that he actually replied you truthfully, albeit snarkily and rather stupidly by saying that: because they would port to another map zone to take out another world boss.
     
    The first question I could garner from you would be are you a free account player? I figured you might be, so there's a lot more restrictions than just getting some zones locked off until you reach a certain level; you can't leave the starter zones until you reach level 10, I believe. And then stuff like reaching level 30 before you can use the Looking-For-Group (LFG). And then you can't use mapchat if you're a free account, which could explain the reason why you're getting shunned aside in world chats: free accounts only lets you use the local chats and whispers and even that is restricted to about 30 seconds per use? I think? Maybe that could be the explanation as to why you're being shunned aside, social-game wise. There's no hub for any of these, and I just think that you may be restricted interaction-wise based on your account, unless you're in a guild, I believe, where you can just talk to us in a sense - I'll check this out later on.
     
    Exploration-wise, personally I advise you not to rush into the mobs willy nilly, even though it's not against any set rules. I'd say you go around and explore the map and get to 100% completion around it: getting all waypoints, Hero points, POI's, vistas and renowned hearts - the gold hearts on the map, completed. That itself could net you some exp points. And some of these hearts provide options for you to finish it, and not just hitting enemies. Probably that could explain why you feel like it's a grind? And just saying, leveling up in Guild Wars 2 is much simpler and a little bit faster, provided you know what to do.
     
    And if you're still in Queensdale, your starting zone, there's a world boss you can encounter there, where you need more than 20+ players to take out: Shadow Behemoth. I have a vague feeling you have seen this boss before from your story, but I'm not so sure about it. For your information, there's a number of world bosses like the Shadow Behemoth, with the infamous one in our guild being Tequatl the Sunless, aka Tequila Sunrise, aka Teapot Urinal. These monsters take a lot of players to defeat and along your journeys around the world map, you may encounter them. Aside from that, there's other dynamic events, colored with orange icons on your map that you can participate in and get rewards. All of these (world boss, dynamic events) are time based, so you can just take your time into it. And if you're interested on guild-based events, the guild runs a weekly guild missions that runs every Sunday at 9 PM server time, although we're going to take a break when HoT comes out.
     
    PvP, as much fun as it is, you should dive into it once your character level is maxed out, or at a time where you have a better grasp at your character class and its traits and skills. The sole reason I think you got your butt handed to you in PvP would most likely be because you haven't traited well, and you haven't prepped your skills and specs well. I don't advise you not to go in, but since I figure you're a free account player, you're also restricted here, I believe. Personally I'm not good in PvP, and there's other members here who had fun in PvP that I know of, so I could only give a limited view on my part on PvP. 
     
    Anyways. In all honesty, I don't really see where the game gets the hype, but we still play the game mostly because we grew to love the game. Sure, the endgame story sucks, and I still hate that the game doesn't end as good as I was supposed to feel about it, but it doesn't really stop me from having fun with it, especially when we roll together in a guild. And as for generic? A game where I get to swap weapons and get new skills out of it - where I can join in on a small party or a large army and roll out sieging castles with siege weapons? A game where I can just easily level up my character by either killing mobs, or exploring the map, or even crafting gear for myself? Or even cook?
     
    What's pretty different is that the holy trinity of your standard MMO is non-existent here, where there is no standard DPS dealer, no healer and no tank. Every class you have can do all three, provided you trait and spec up correctly.
     
    tl;dr - Take it slow, Guild Wars 2 is a different breed of MMO that's slow paced, and gives options for you to do things. You might be restricted on a lot of things just because you're on a free account, but that's not to hinder you or anything. It's a do-it-at-your-pace game, rather than your conventional MMORPG. 
     
    If anything, that's my long ten-cents of the matter, hope it helps, and if there's anything that's bothering you, just feel free to hit the guild up in the game or in TS, or here.
  11. adpop liked a post in a topic by Hashirama Senju in Just Another Day   
    8, Season of the Colossus, 1328 AE - 5th October 2015 of the Gregorian.
     
    The small, grizzled asuran scratched his head as he took a peek through the newsletters he received throughout his mindings and pokings with the information he had. Asurans never leave any stone unturned, and the news about the upcoming guild hall construction projects left him in a rather quizzical state about how the guild would be doing the building as a whole. They have not even decided on where they wanted to have it constructed yet! Heaving a sigh, the asuran thief walked around the makeshift office in First Haven, his desk littered with notes about misconducts – which oddly smelled like pork rinds, some notes about upscrating inots and the confusion about inots and ingots, along with a few notes written in various handwritings and various messages, but all of them were written in the same note:
     
    “I blame you, Jeb! For…”
     
    “What have I done this time…” Jeb said with a rather bemused grin. It was just another day in the very insane guild.
     
    His grey digits stacked the notes in his hands and stowed them in his desk – ready to poke and prod for another day, as he stepped out from the office and right to the chaos and the clutter that is the Angry Army Guild. 
     
    “Where is Toriko when you need him?” He said amusedly as the guild leader meandered around to stow the papers away – Jeb was always the de-facto leader of the guild, although he had a co-partner for the leading. He was sure that Toriko, the co-guild leader of the army of the angry, would appear soon enough. 
     
    First Haven was their temporary home; a gathering place for all various beings of Tyria: small, minute asurans – large, strapping norns – humans of all color and variety – colorful sylvari who were still resisting the effects of Mordremoth, and the fierce and yet very wild charr. The ramparts were their lookouts; the small halls and barracks were their staging area and their living quarters, and although it was present, most of the guild members and the ranked members would be off and about doing their thing in Tyria: hunting Risen undeads, collecting materials and ingredients for the guild, crafting items, cooking food and the sorts. Some even ventured east to Dry Top and the Silverwastes for the promise of gold, loot and the chance to hunt down Mordremoth’s minions. Therefore the First Haven Barracks were mostly empty, save for a few Lionguards stationed there, as well as some merchants making their wares there.
     
    Not today, though, obviously.
     
    “Nothing like a crazy day in the guild.” Jeb said with a chuckle, to himself, as he rallied the guild members for a moment.
     
    The guild leader of quite possibly the most insane guild in all of Tyria was surprisingly level headed for an asuran – although some say it was actually quite common. To him, he had told one guild officer about it when asked, where he simply answered: “Because I have to lead you crazy lots in guild missions, now do I?” True, he was supposed to be the guild leader of sorts with the craziest rabble in the land, but that does not necessarily mean that he was not one for games and being rowdy – as attested to one ‘drunken guy night’ that was infamously coined by another guild member, where Jeb dropped his magisterially duties and went crazy with the rest of the bunch.
     
    As the leader went out to inform the rest of the guild members, at one corner, a rather large charr was standing in the middle of a small crowd of what seemed to be new guild members recruited by a guild officer - a rather tall, handsome looking human male with long hair and a dashing smile, who was going around telling the regular guild members and veterans alike to “please welcome them warmly, okay, guys?”
     
    Treeps, the human male, decked in leather stealth gear, was all too keen on this, telling the members this again and again, as his ‘nice-guy’ persona was all he has. He wanted this to be one of the friendliest guild in Tyria and by letting the rest know about welcoming them in, he hoped that the guild would be warmly received. He had taken his time – and secretly, paid gold to Minister Caudecus; to send out flyers for recruitment in the process. He has to – he was one of the second in command in the guild and therefore he had to shoulder the responsibility.
     
    “Guys, I’ve recruited some people to join our guild, so welcome them warmly okay?” The man was busy going around telling the guild members this.
     
    “Welcome to hell!” One officer was heard yelling out to the group of new recruits, before quickly switching it to: “… I mean, the Angry Army!”
     
    The charr gave a snort as he ignored the small whispers of the crowd in front of him as he began to read the piece of parchment that he was holding in his paws – oblivious to the small hushed whispers of:
     
    “Why is he wearing a dress?” One recruit was saying quietly to the other.
     
    “Isn’t that dress ten sizes too big for him?” Was heard from another recruit as he was talking.
     
    “Poor dress…” A female charr recruit was seen sighing. “There’s a hole in its butt for the tail.”
     
    They do not know what significance the dress holds, the charr was thinking rather pompously to himself, as he stood there wearing what seemed to be a ripped piece of what seemed to be a very grand wedding dress. He stood there on a wooden barrel, reciting the infamous ‘Angry Army Credo’ that was to be the code of conduct for the guild, his voice foppish and pompous and grand – reciting the piece of parchment out loud with his rather fake accent that was totally not suited for a charr. They do not know the significance of a wedding dress on a charr, he proclaimed silently. Wedding dresses on a charr makes us sound grand and very foppish and fae-ish. The charr was pretty much ignoring the whispers and chatters of what happened last ‘drunken guy night’, as he was standing there looking proud and pretty ridiculous in the getup he was wearing. Over on the corner, some officers were already trying their best to hold their laughter in, while Treeps – as he was going around telling the rest to be friendly to them, looked at Demonbane in horror, as if he was trying to forget what happened that time. It was a memory he silently wanted so hard to forget: to no avail. The man with the good looking smile and the friendly demeanor shuffled along, doing his daily rounds of welcoming the guild recruits warmly.
     
    “Rule number one.” Demonbane, the dress-wearing charr, read out loud, much to the chagrin of the newcomers. “Insanity required in order to join the army of angry.” He said, pausing for effect, before adding. “It is a strict, very strict requirement, ladies and gentlemen…”
     
    “Who wrote this monstrosity?” One recruit whispered to the other, as the other pointed at one corner of the room.
     
    “That thief right there.” She replied, pointing to a male thief.
     
    “The one being chased by that small asuran?”
     
    “Exactly the one.” She nodded.
     
    “Why is he being chased?”
     
    “The other wants him to die in a fire.”
     
    “Ah…” He nodded. “So no wonder that asuran was shooting fireballs at him.
     
    “DIE IN A FIRE, SENJU!!!”
     
    The tiny asuran squeaked as her fingers arched and fires gathered in her palms, before it arched and blazed out to the intended target, a human male clad in black-and-gold, as he rather easily shadowstepped his way away from the floor and towards the ramparts.
     
    “What did I do now?” He laughed, before coughing a little bit lightly. 
     
    “Please don't die, Senju! Wait, what am I saying!? You put that in the credo just because!” The asuran replied crossly, and rather angrily as she shots another fireball, which he avoided.
     
    “Well, Muzical, you had it coming.” Senju replied with a chuckle. “And besides, how can’t I? Guild Leader’s orders.” He added with a shrug of her shoulders.
     
    His shoulderguards got burned by Muzical.
     
    “DIE IN A FIRE!!!”
     
    “You wish that to everyone, you know.” He pointed out, before avoiding another fireball – one that narrowly avoided a few crowds of veterans and officers who were talking to one another before Senju made his landing, and causing the group to be narrowly blazed by the elementalist’s fire spells. One person who was sniggering to himself about it, has had enough, as he looked at Muzical.
     
    “That is it.” One asuran said with a huff. “That is it! I am out from here! Drunken guy night needs to happen without the fires!” He proclaimed, shaking a tiny finger at the female asura before turning around with a huff and walking away – leaving a path of flowers and roses in his wake as he was carrying a legendary weapon – Kudzu, the flowered longbow, that was crafted after weeks of hunting and crafting.
     
    “You’re not sorry for ripping up my dress too, Shadow!” The female asuran said, pointing a small finger at him – as Shadow the asuran walked away with his full-tilt diva act out, chuckling with mirth.
     
    “Hey, Tyler!” Senju said, as he shadowstepped back to a charr sitting in the group. “What I told you about Muzical’s tendency to be a tsundere?” He pointed.
     
    The charr sighed and chuckled at the human as he flipped a page from the book he was studying, obviously being one very knowledgeable charr as he was busy studying the dungeons of Tyria. The guild veteran was pretty well versed about it, and was in-the-know about it, although the feline male was pretty much busy with other affairs that he had going on with the Durmand Priory and such. “Well, Senju. You did call her a robot mouse.”
     
    “I am not a robot mouse!” Was the reply coming out from another corner as the asuran elementalist as she targeted another guild officer with the yells of “DIE IN A FIRE!!!” How she had heard that was anyone’s guess.
     
    Shadow avoided another fireball that was targeted at him – along with another bunch of new recruits who scampered away at it as the human male and the male charr sat there. “It wasn’t my fault, it was Jeb.” The thief replied.
     
    “We always blame Jeb for everything.” Tyler replied as the foppish voice of Demonbane recited the famous line.
     
    “Blame everything on Jeb. When everything is right or wrong in Tyria, read rule number two, ladies and gents.” The large charr-in-a-dress was heard saying.
     
    Just sitting a few steps away from the charr and the new recruits – listening to him bawl about the credo, a young woman was busy hammering her golden wrench on the floor repeatedly, muttering something along the lines of “Damn loads…” and “Load this piece of…” and “Xio, you can do this! Load!” The woman was then tackle-hugged by Muzical the asuran as she was whimpering in sadness.
     
    “Xio! The guys are bullying me!” The small asuran moaned.
     
    “It’s okay.” Xio replied. “At least you brighten the day with warm fuzziness and brightness in the guild.” She replied, causing the asuran to look up at Xio with glittery eyes, in awe at the words, as if she was telling Xio about how sweet that sounded.
     
    Into which, at these words, Shadow, Senju, Tyler and Demonbane looked at Xio blankly as if what she was saying was not possible at all.
     
    Xio shot them a look which quickly made all of them pretend to resume their duties.
     
    “But hang on.” Xio said, as she puts the asura down, before resuming to knock the golden wrench on the floor again. “I got to make this work before we go out again!” She said, punctuating each word with a hit of her wrench on the floor. “And before we could break into a song again…”
     
    Xio, another one of the female officers of the guild, was famous for her songs and her outlandish activities; one which included a rather legendary affair on how the guild members were facing a resurrected Tequatl the Sunless at Sparkfly Fen – one which included the participating members to down some quaggan tonic and surface from the beach as a quaggan and fighting alongside the armies of heroes. She was also famous for her guild karaoke sessions, which allowed her to own the legendary Golden Wrench that she pretended to be a microphone whenever she sang.
     
    Unfortunately, the Wrench has a tendency to fail her whenever she wanted to join in with the rest.
     
    As if on cue, Demonbane was heard singing a few bytes of song from a rather famous movie, into which a few seconds later the new recruits around him were ‘forced’ to sing as well.
     
    “I feel pretty… So pretty… So pretty and witty and GAY!!!”
     
    The officers at the sides were already laughing hard about this, before Senju again coughed incessantly – after having caught the virus from his last mission with the Orrian inquisition.
     
    “Damnit Angry Army!” The asuran elementalist who was slinging fireballs and fire fields was heard shouting and pointing at the grandeur charr-in-a-dress. “This is why we can’t have nice dresses!”
     
    One of the officers laughed at this, before quickly fleeing himself, and the rest of the group, away from the asura as she yelled in rage and in anger as she threw down more fires, still yelling “DIE IN A FIRE!!!” as the rest of the officers were seen laughing at the scene as if this was a regular thing that occured with the ranking members.
     
    “By the way…” One recruit was heard whispering to another. “What is drunken guy night?”
     
    At the mention of this, Treeps’ face turned white and his expression paled – as he slowly and stealthily walked away from the hall and away into hiding – while some of the new recruits eyed the Officer suspiciously.
     
    “Well the thing is… There is a rumor about some of the guild members of the Angry Army. You see, people like…” The other recruit said as he pointed his fingers at Demonbane – the charr reading the credo, Senju, Shadow – the asuran leaving a trail of flowers behind him as he walked away, and then to the guild leader himself. “Those people. Some say that you never want Senju, Demonbane, Shadow and Jeb in a group together.” He explained quietly. “Because the rumors around the beer kegs and the norn ales say that one night, the four of them conspired to sneak through the halls, steal Muzical’s favorite wedding dress and wear it around Lion’s Arch while drunk. Some say they were not even drunk and was completely sober and that some say that they let the charr wore the wedding dress.”
     
    “Oh, so that’s why Demon…”
     
    “Yup. And some say they dragged Treeps around Lion’s Arch against his will and forced him to wear the dress too.” The other said with a knowing nod.
     
    At the words, the recruits watched as Treeps made his appearance again, as if on cue, listening to this and quickly shaking his head and looking rather suspiciously innocent; although the act was fully believable. “I don’t have any idea what you guys are talking about!” He was seen saying. “I have no memory of this… night, even happening guys. Please don’t ask me about it!” Before he made his way out from the concession, looking as if he had swallowed a face full of vile essences.
     
    “I see.” The other nodded in understanding. “But I never thought that Jeb would be joining in on the craziness.”
     
    “Well.” The recruit said proudly. “This is an insane guild.”

    Subtle references. Explicit references. Much creativity. Brilliant humor. Amazing job, Senju!

    Bruh, I got one problem with this game (GW2). It is waaaaay to easy. The endgame for PvE is kinda non-existent, so you will probably spend most of your time doing WvW or PvP.  Also, this game is kinda based on the philosophy that it's the journey that's important, not the goal. You can do most of the end-game stuff when you are at level 30 and the only restrictions are gear which is really easy to get (Just go for Exotic's if you don't want to spend time getting gear. Get Ascended gear if you like getting the best gear). PvP in short is heaven. It is probably the best PvP experience I have had in any MMO (I've played a lot of MMO's). There are two modes for PvP, Conquest and Deathmatch. Conquest is what you probably want. Deathmatch is kinda stupid in my opinion and is only there because Call of Duty fanboys were complaining. In Conquest you capture nodes. Each node will give your team points periodically. Killing enemies will also give you points. There are a couple of maps (the Battle of Kyhlo being the most popular). Some of the maps also have secondary objectives that can influence the game, but the nodes are the most important objectives. For the expansion Heart of Thorns, thy are adding another PvP mode called Stronghold. This takes a bit of influence from MOBA's. Here is a link to find more info on it (PvP). WvW is a three way fight between servers to conquer objectives (towers, supply depots, etc.). While you hold these objectives you gain points periodically. It is actually kind of fun, but if you play on a toaster you can get fps drops. Here is a link for more info (WvW). There will be many changes to it when the expansion releases. for more info look at this (HoT, WvW). PvE in short can be boring. When you first do the dungeons, they might be hard but they will get really easy. When the expansion drops, we will get another region of the world called the Maguma Jungle and maybe hard core content!!! Right now the only time I really play PvP is if I want to do Fractals or for the Living World. The lore and story for this game is actually good. In short GW2 tries to innovate in many areas, but sometimes it just fucks up. WvW and PvP are worth checking out. And if you really feel like doing PvE, don't do the Personal Story, it is a piece of shit. Only do it if you want to familiarize yourself with the characters as some of them actually play an important role for the living world. 
    Hope this helped!

    The best way to get better is to only play ranked unless you are learning a new champion or playing with a friend. If you always play ranked when soloing then it will feel less stressful since it is the only mode you play. Also do not set goals and take each match individually while playing like you have all the time in the world. By setting goals and timelines, you force anxiety on to yourself to meet those deadlines. If you play like you have all the time in the world, you will be more relaxed and actually enjoy the game, in turn actually playing better without really doing anything different.
     
    If you want to improve, I recommend recording your games and watching all the games you lose. Ignore everything everyone else is doing and only focus on what you did. Then try to find out what you did wrong and what you can do better. Apply it to your next game and then rinse and repeat if necessary. By doing this you attempt to not repeat the same things that caused you to lose the previous games. Not all games are winnable though. Even in games where you play nearly perfect (no one is perfect), there could be things that you couldv'e just done better or mistakes that your opponent made that you did not capitalize on. Once you get to that point you should be winning much more than losing and only watching your replays to perfect your play sessions with your champion of choice.
     
    I also recommend using a champion pool. Having at least 1 champion you play for each lane and a couple back up champions for your top 2 preferred lanes. Then just try to play your most preferred lanes if possible and have a backup for those lanes if it is picked/banned as well as champions for lanes you may be forced to play.
     
    Sorry for the long post. >.< I will stop now...

    Hi BiggM! Welcome to the AJSA!
    If you are looking for a good F2P FPS on PC i would recommend Blacklight:Retribuiton or Planetside 2. Those are the only good F2P FPS games that come to my mind right now (not a big FPS fan,so i dont that much about FPS).   

    "What titles are you guys playing these days?" I play MMORPGS like Guild wars 2 and rift, RTS Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 on the ps4 (if thats what you meant with "What titles are you guys playing these days?".
