My thoughts on LoL: Dominion

First of all if you haven't yet check out the official announcement from Riot http://dominion.leagueoflegends.com/
Im an avid League of Legends player and my initial reaction to this was "Awesome! Finally some solid content! And all the Riot hype from this week said it was going to be released this week!" Then it quickly turned into "Oh great more Soon(TM) bullshit". Now to defend riot, they did say its tentative date was after PAX Prime AKA Aug 28th. But if you know Riot, that could all very well be a load of crap and this could just turn out to be more Soon(TM) Vaporware. I mean just look at their promise history: Magma chamber was promised back in Sept. 2010.. Observer mode... graphics update.... Stealth rework... Replays.... All Soon(TM) crap that never came through.

Bashing aside, the game mode does look fun. It sort of sounds like a rip from one of BloodLines Champions game modes, but from the (very short and not detailed) video it does look fun and unique. I am excited to see it in full detail and try it out when (and if) its released.

  10. I tried to give Bloodlines a try.. LoL is definitely a more polished, well balanced game. I'm honestly most excited about the observer mode - I play with a pretty tight group of friends, and being a spectator makes the rounds go by a little quicker.

  11. Your background is awesome! You should change your background color to blue though or choose another tileset, on my screen I have yellow edges ;)

  12. i play lol almost everyday, its an awesome game and i agree with you on how riot puts a bunch of its stuff of till later time, but with this they are already giving us a trailer and by the looks of it the mapping and gameplay looks almost finished. all im saying is that this is more believable them magma chamber were the only thing ever released about it was a map over-view.

  13. I don't have the cash to buy a comp that can play LoL, however I do still play DotA on Warcraft 3 quite a bit. Vaporware of course is horrible, but it looks like it will be a nice expansion.

  19. I know what you mean, I hate the whole "we should have it out for date x" this date then comes and goes without the release. That said rushed games and dlc are generally shitty.
