Dreadknight Garen Skin

Do you want more free skins? Of course you do! Riot is giving away the Dreadknight Garen skin and all you have to do is follow one of their accounts. You will get a code which you can redeem in the shop in-game. This one is Twitter promotion. So, if you have a Twitter account (or make one just for this promo), head over here and Spin to Win!

As with the other skins you will get the champion for free if you don’t have Garen yet. I have no idea until this promotion runs, but I don’t think they’ll stop this one soon, since the Unchained Alistar and Riot Girl Tristana promotions are still running also.

[Update: 9-4-2014] You asked for it, so I looked it up. I found the skin for free for all the other regions as well. Click on your region to claim your free Dreadknight Garen! Don’t forget to share this post with your friends so everyone can enjoy their free Garen champion and skin.

Arclight Varus Skin Giveaway

[Update 26-3-2014] All keys have been given away. I hope everyone got the key they wanted. I will keep my eye out for more and new giveaways. There are still people in the comments who wish to trade keys from other servers. Help them out if you can. Share the love. If you didn’t get this skin, you can still claim Garen, Tristana and Alistar for free. Check out the links on the right side.

Alienware will be giving away the Arclight Varus skin throughout the month of March. These keys are limited, so get them fast. You can sign up and Alienware will send you an email with the time when you can claim a key. The keys are for NA and EU server, although they don’t specify for which EU server they are. You’re only able to claim one key.

I received this skin from a mystery gift and I like it very much :) As with the other free skins, even if you don’t have the champion, you will be able to claim the skin and thus receive the champion for free.

[Update 07-03-2014]The first week of the giveaway is over! Didn’t get the skin? Don’t worry, Alienware is still giving them away for the next three weeks :) I noticed that the EU giveaway started at 19.00 CET (10 am PST). They also mentioned in the mail that it’s very likely that the keys will be gone within 15 minutes.

Also, check out Mark’s comment below. I have no idea if it works. It didn’t feel right for me to claim one of your keys. Please let me know if it works. Also, if someone could send me the starting time of the NA release last Tuesday, that would great :) We can help each other.

[Update 11-3-2014] Cato confirmed it to work. Share the love. If you have a code for EU server, consider sharing it with someone from the other EU server :) Tonighy is another NA giveaway! Be ready!

Karma’s new kit

Riot has released a champion spotlight with the new abilities. I’m not sure what to think of it yet. I want to play her with the new kit first before I say they’re not good. The new abilities do give her more CC, which is always good as support. But I’m not sure she’ll be a viable mid. I think there are better chars for mid. It seems she has more range which is always good. Especially since they change her passive. Now there’s no need for you to tank the shit of it and then do damage when your HP is so low you get another 100 AP extra.

Just a quick for this one. I saw this one passing by on Facebook and couldn’t help but sharing it :)

Isn’t she cute? Danny Choo linked me this picture. If you’re an anime fan, you should definitely check out his website www.dannychoo.com . If you’ve seen a stray stormtrooper in random japanese pictures, it’s him.

Level 30!

Finally! I finally managed to get to level 30, and not without obstacles. I played a lot of co-op games against bots to get the necessary experience. I chose bot games because of the slight xp/ip boost and because I prefer to play normal games with my friends who mostly play in the evenings. I have to share my gaming pc and my sister usually wants it in the evening, so tough luck. I received about 130 experience from bot games, depending on who I played as. With Ashe I could easily get 20 kills, more than half of the team kills, but only if my lane buddy wasn’t being an ass and I didn’t have Graves up in my face.

When I reached the point of only needing 109 more experiences I told my friends I wanted to play a game with them and celebrate my victory. Since I was playing with friends, I proposed to play a normal game. Although I don’t have that much experience with normal games, I get compliments from my team mates when I’m playing Sona. Our line was… okay. Nothing special and should work, except it didn’t. Maybe our team play wasn’t good enough or the enemy champs were just good counterpicks, I don’t know. We ended up losing after a thirty minute match and I only received 104 experience…

And I didn’t get to play ‘the last match’ until two days later. This final match was another loss, just as the four after that. I’ve got a beautiful losing streak on my recently played matches. Although I’m level 30, the hard part starts now. With 68 games won and 63 games lost on normal, I’ve much room for improvement. Hopefully next post I will have a winning streak again, possibly with Varus and/or Karma’s remake :)

Level 28!

Almost there. It’s so close I can taste it, that level 30. And soon I’ll have my first two rune pages filled as well. Then I can start buying champions again and unlocking more rune pages.

Enough about my progress. Let’s have a look at what’s Riot is doing. In the upcoming patch they are nerfing some defense runes and buffing the offensive runes. I build my AP and AD rune page with offense in mind. So I can finish building them this way and they’ll be even more effective. But it made me wonder if an offensive rune page and defensive masteries would give a better result instead of the other way around. I don’t have enough IP yet to test it, but I will when I have.

My main is still Sona and I’m getting more compliments every time. I’m getting better at playing support. Ward all over the place, save my team mates when needed, harass the enemy in lane phase. It might be a boring role, but it’s a necessary one. And AD carry without a good support can’t carry. I would like to learn to play different support characters as well. That’s why I’m looking forward to the Kayle buff and Karma remake.  The Karma remake is planned. Karma’s designer said she’s getting more CC.

I hope this will make her more viable as a support. He never said anything about when this remake will be released. In the mean time I’ll be looking forward to Varus. I saw something last night and he looks awesome. His range is insane and his skills look fun.

Level 25!

I reached level 25 a few days ago. It shouldn’t have taken this long, but life happened and several things prevented me from playing. I have a LAN party next week so I’m expecting to get to level 30 before March is over.

I’m still playing Sona as my main in normal games. When playing in a premade team, I shine as support, mostly because others can do more damage than me. I don’t mind playing the support role or the occasional bait. I still have to try other supports like Soraka and Lulu. I really want to learn how to play a good Lulu. Just the thought that I can demasculate men by turning them into a cute kitten or a cupcake is exciting. I will write more about Lulu when I get to play her, hopefully soon.

Level 20!

I have finally reached level 20 in League of Legends which allows me to buy runes and finally be awesome. Because of the team I’m playing with, I’ve adapted the support role in most of these games, with Sona being my favorite. I also tried Janna, since she was free last week, but I think Sona is better in her role as support, healing, giving armor, damage or movement speed when needed. Her ultimate is good in team fights when they’re all grouped together. I stunned 5 enemy champions with one ult last night (so proud *sniff*) and we managed to kill three of them. So for now, Sona will be my most used champion.

Now I’ve to get myself to level 30 as fast as I can, because they wanna play ranked with me. Apparently I’m that good, but I don’t believe them.
