The Stray Sheep #6 – League of Legends

Well, hello there, Ladies and Gentlemen!

Today we’re talking about the infamous League of Legends. It’s a MOBA by Riot Games and while they are called Riot gameS with an S at the end, they didn’t really publish anything else other than League of Legends, different game modes for League of Legends and a board game!

Anyways, this small indie game is absolutely lovely. Not in the sense that its soundtrack is great (well, turned that sound off and am listening to my Chet Baker playlist while playing) or that its gameplay is cool (tbh, it’s just a MOBA so not much to expect here..) or that its graphics are awesome (cause apart from a few skins there’s not all that much here), no it’s just a lovely game because of the all the work put into its universe and the different characters with their lore, interactions and whatnot! On top of that, the community isn’t that toxic – especially not if you just mute them after their first insult and I met quite a lot of nice people on League that aren’t toxic at all. It’s fun. I play the game nearly every day and with a little bit of masochism and quite a lot of positivity, you can even climb in the ladder!

I myself am a Support Main. I mainly play enchanters and tanks, just like in other games. I enjoy Bards and Healers in RPGs and MMOs but often go for Summoners and other kinds of Mages as well, when playing other games. In League, you’ve got plenty of characters that suit your needs!

Lulu is a lovely enchanter that is able to transform enemy champions into little squirrels and stuff!

You’re coming from Overwatch and were a Roadhog-Main? Well, try out Urgot or Nautilus!
You’ve enjoyed the Demon Hunter in Diablo 3? Vayne’s exactly what you need!
You love blowing stuff up? Ziggs!
You enjoyed Dr Who? Then try out Ryze! He’s a time traveller from the future who’s trying to find a cure for a disease that killed his whole race if I remember correctly.
And when you like pissing off people, you should play Bard. He’s a good guy.

Well, I myself am a fan of Bard, Nami, Nautilus and Braum. I often also play other enchanters than Nami, for example, Janna, Lulu or Sona, but most often I go for Nami. She’s a lovely champ after all.

This is Bard! A champion that leaves his ADC alone and is able to troll the heck out of your team. But he’s insanely fun and really strong, especially when you’re actually trying to win!

Nami’s a Support-Character who’s got a lot of utility in her kit and is able to deal with all kinds of situations. An assassin in the bush? Bubble them! Enemy jungler has been spotted? Bubble them! Your team is too slow? Bubble them! She’s quite the versatile champion.
As for her abilities, whenever she casts her abilities on an allied champion, they get a short boost of movement speed. This is helpful for roaming other lanes, getting out of danger or getting to lane faster than the enemy. As for her Q, it’s a bubble and it knocks enemies hit up. It’s a little hard to land but it’s a great ability! Her W is a wave that heals allies and damages enemies. It bounces from an allied to an enemy and vice versa if there’s enemies/allies in range, which makes it quite strong. On top of that, she can enhance allies’ auto-attacks and make them slow enemies with their next three attacks while also applying bonus damage with her E! Her ultimate ability summons a tidal wave dealing damage to all enemies it hits and knocking them up. The movement speed allies gain from it is doubled.
Also, all of her abilities can be cast on herself as well, giving her all the benefits.

Urf the Nami-tee and other skins

She has so much in her kit and is absolutely lovely as a champion. Every skin of her is lovely, her jokes are witty, her laugh-spam is absolutely tilting and while she’s strong, she’s not overpowered making her honestly my favourite champion. On top of that, she’s got some that mermaid theme going with her and her abilities and it suits her perfectly: There’s water, she has more base-mana-regeneration than other champions and her gameplay feels quite fluid (pun intended!), which I absolutely adore.

Nami’s the best.

There’s quite a lot of cool champions in League and honestly, Nami’s my favourite. I thought I’d give you a little explanation here about why I like her so much.

Anyways, cheers!

This post is part of a contest/challenge called Blaugust! The goal is to past as much as possible and participants are awarded with different prizes depending on the goal they achieved. My aim is to post on all 31 days of August and if you’d like to know more about this “event”, you should check this post out.
