League of Legends' Taric has been updated, looks dreamier

In the early beta days of League of Legends (yes I've been playing that long), Taric was one of my mains. Sure his ranked viability wasn't tops depending on the meta, but I loved playing him with aggressive teammates over Teamspeak. No...

League of Legends celebrates 'Draven Day,' which is actually real

Riot Games has reskinned their entire League of Legends experience to accomodate Draven -- a character that has basically become the Street Fighter-esque "Dan" running gag -- for April Fools day. Sure it's an old meme but Riot rea...

Rockin' cosmic dragon Aurelion Sol added to League of Legends

Aurelion Sol, the badass dragon that has a passive that dishes out lots of latent damage, is live in League of Legends. He's going for 1350 Riot Points (RP) currently, as is the case with other new Champions. He also sports an Ashen Lord sk...

League of Legends' Aurelion Sol deals most of his damage with his passive

Riot just launched Jhinn recently, but its work with League of Legends is seemingly never finished. Aurelion Sol is coming next, and his kit seems very cool indeed. For starters, his description notes that his passive deals the "lion's shar...

The next League of Legends champion is Aurelion Sol, a cosmic dragon

No matter what you think of League of Legends or MOBAs in general, there's no denying that Riot Games can make a mean trailer -- for a simple character, no less! The newest champ on the scene is Aurelion Sol, who is a dark cosmic ...

ESPN tries to be hip with the LoL kids

League of Legends' Shen just got a rework, watch him in action

Every so often, MOBA developers take a look at old characters who may aren't doing so well, and give them a makeover. This is commonly referred to as a "rework," and League of Legends' Shen is next on the chopping block. The main reason why...

League of Legends' Jhin sounds like the ultimate carry

Riot Games has unveiled its latest Champion for League of Legends in Jhin, "The Virtuoso." He's a bit of an odd duck, in that he has to reload his gun, and his attacks don't do as much crit damage by design -- rather, he'll gain attack...

League of Legends' newest champion tease reminds me of the Hannibal TV show

Riot Games is teasing its next Champion for League of Legends, by way of a video called "Mind of the Virtuoso." Sporting a Dishonored-like mask, they artfully turn someone into a tree with a bullet, which reminds me of Hannibal's awes...
