Your League Of Legends Plays Aren't Always As Awesome As You Remember

You might feel like a total badass for the way you held down your lane against three—three!—enemy champions in that last game of League of Legends.

The Invisible League Of Legends Attack Bug Riot Can't Seem To Resolve

Bugs and glitches are an unfortunate fact of life that usually just have to be tolerated when playing a game as hugely popular as League of Legends. The story of one such bug that's teetered between irritating and insufferable got a lot more interesting this week after a player figured out how to reproduce it. » 3/27/15 4:50pm Friday 4:50pm

Heroes Of The Storm’s Murky Finally Has His Day In The Sun

Murky is the last character in Heroes of the Storm I'd expect to kick ass in a team battle. Apparently, one player has uncovered the secret to the seriously underpowered Murloc's hidden powers: » 3/25/15 6:30pm Wednesday 6:30pm

How League Of Legends Enables Toxicity

For many people—even many gamers—"toxicity" and League of Legends go hand-in-hand. The game has a longstanding reputation for harboring a noxious player-base that continues to spew hateful epithets at one another despite developer Riot's best intentions to make them stop. The truth is a bit more complicated. » 3/25/15 11:30am Wednesday 11:30am

Jigglypuff's Famous Rest Attack Put To The Test

One of the key things that makes Jigglypuff an absolute terror in the Smash Bros. ring is her "rest" move. If you've ever gone against the Puff, you know what I'm talking about: it's when she falls asleep and then beats you into a pulp. But just how powerful is it, exactly? Numbers to the rescue! » 3/24/15 12:15pm 3/24/15 12:15pm

Lots of big changes are coming to Heroes of the Storm today. Blizzard's list of patch notes detail dramatic gameplay adjustments alongside the addition of a new hero, map, and ranked mode known as "Team League."

One Small Thing I Love About Heroes Of The Storm

I recently added Heroes of the Storm to the growing pile of MOBAs that I've become hopelessly addicted to. And while I find the characters in Blizzard's new game lacking in some ways (like their skins), one thing really impresses me about it in comparison to League of Legends: the way the heroes talk to one another. » 3/23/15 4:30pm 3/23/15 4:30pm

One Of League Of Legends' Worst Champions Made A Surprising Comeback

One of this past weekend's League of Legends championship series games shocked fans thanks to the arrival of a hero character who hasn't shown his hideously mutated face in the eSports scene in quite some time: Urgot.

This League of Legends Mod For Smash Bros. Will Never Be Played

In their free time, some Riot developers made a Smash Bros. mod that League of Legends-ified the game. Sadly, Super League Bros. (as I like to call it) will most likely never see the light of day since Riot said it was "just for fun." At least we can gaze upon some fuzzy pictures and dream of what could have been. » 3/20/15 12:30pm 3/20/15 12:30pm

Ever wonder how many skulls there are in each part of the mines in that one Heroes of the Storm map? Reddit's MGTakedown just broke the answer down with a handy and simple illustration. Now go do the MOBA thing of memorizing all those numbers and then raging at your teammates for failing to do so. Tiny image included… » 3/19/15 2:50pm 3/19/15 2:50pm

​The Problem With League Of Legends' Lore

Keeping track of lore in a MOBA often seems as valuable as watching porn for the story, to quote one recent critic of League of Legends' latest character reveal. I tend to agree. But YouTuber Gnarsies makes a good case for why having terrible lore really does matter—even for a seemingly plotless gaming genre. » 3/19/15 1:15pm 3/19/15 1:15pm

Toxicity is a fact of life in popular MOBA games like League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, and Dota 2. No two toxic players are exactly the same, though.

How One League Of Legends Champion Has Changed Over Five Years

You know what people say when admiring the glory of real-world teenagers: "They grow up so fast." The same goes for League of Legends characters. You just have to replace "grow up so fast" with "received a number of small but not insignificant changes over the course of many, many patches." My, how time flies! » 3/18/15 1:30pm 3/18/15 1:30pm
