Friday Night Fights: League of Legends

Are you getting excited for E3? In past years, Destructoid has brought the most amazing coverage of the expo, and this year will be no exception. From the conferences, to the show floor, we got your backs. Even though I’m filled with E3 excitement, the FNF show must go on, and this week with an added bonus!

Thanks to Johnnyviral, this week is the premiere of the first League of Legends FNF. Starting at 9:00 pm EDT, if you want to play this insanely popular PC game with your Dtoid brethren, come join in! Information on how to get involved can be found below, along with the usual PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and EU FNF crew.

And if fighting or sports games are your specialty, don’t forget that you can check out Fight.destructoid.com for an online gaming system in which you can wager points for your battles. Friday Night Fights has never been so epic!

New to FNF? Read this: Each week, a bunch of Destructoid readers and usually an editor or two get together to play some videogames online. Basically, this is what Friday Night Fights are all about.

The planning for FNF takes place in the forums, where community members volunteer to host by posting their information (gamertag, time to meet up, game, etc.) in the forum post corresponding to the system they’re interested in playing on.

Then, every Friday, reminder posts for those who don’t read the forums regularly go up in the community blogs section all thanks to a dedicated group of cool individuals. And for everyone who wants their info all in one place, they have got my weekly recap posts to look forward to between 4:30 – 5:30 PM EST.

Now that you’re here, just scan the list below and find a game you want to play. All that’s left to do after that is to join the match by contacting the host below using any means necessary. For Wii, you might have to be a little creative, but for 360/PS3 a simple “invite me” message will be fine.

The names on the left are our Destructoid handles, while the ones on the right are our online handles (PSN IDs, for example). Don’t see a game you want to play? Feel free to post a comment offering to take up hosting duties yourself.
