Music Monday – DJ Sona – Kinect

Music Monday – A game themed song every Monday I already dropped this one on Twitter and people thought it was a good idea. I don’t think there are enough people promoting the awesome sounds of games and my growing game OST map only shows that more developers are willing to give us access to just their songs. Expect awesomeness, but if you have suggestions, please let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

This is one of the songs Riot Games made for the new Ultimate Skin, DJ Sona. She actually has her own soundtrack which she plays for her team mates. The skin isn’t out yet, but I’m going to buy it. I love Sona, and this really is a great idea. She can switch forms and has a different song for each form. Team mates can opt in to listen to her songs or opt out if they want to listen to their own music. /toggle will let you change her form.

I’m not a big fan of dance music, but lately I’m listening to some light dubstep while gaming, because it’s relaxing. I thing DJ Sona’s songs will fit perfectly in that playlist, although they’re slightly more aggressive. All three songs have their own still. This one, Kinect, fits very well in the dance-genre, Concussive (DJ Sona’s red skin) is more on-beat. It reminds me of SSX3’s soundtrack, which I think still one of the best. Ethereal (DJ Sona’s blue/purple skin) is very mellow and the most relaxing of the three.

I honestly think that Riot is doing a great job in producing high quality music for League of Legends and for the lore. I mean, Pentakill is one of my favorite albums and The Curse of the Sad Mummy is still on repeat.

Dreadknight Garen

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.

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.

Karma Remake, finally!

This is what the new default Karma looks like. Isn’t she awesome? But, wait? Where are her fans?

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 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.

League of Legends – Caitlyn

Ever since I started playing League of Legends, I played ranged AD carry champions. The oneI normally play is Sivir (she’s cheap and I knew I’d like her). But Caitlyn was free a few weeks ago and I tried her once before that. The only thing I can say is that I love to play her.

Her damage is better, her range is better, her poke is better (compared  to Sivir). It’s not surprising since Caitlyn is a tier 1 champion and Sivir a tier 4. Like with every other champion, I needed some time to get used to her, especially her skills. Using her Yordle Snap Traps and 90 Caliber Net takes skill before you can use them effectively. Also the combination of using the trap’s stun, the net and her ult, Ace in the Hole, is awesome, but needs good timing and placement of the trap. The ‘downside’ to the trap is that it’s visible to everyone. A skilled enemy will not walk into it. This knowledge can be used to your advantage by placing traps in key places. Another nice thing to do is place them in the bushes where they cannot be seen until the enemy steps 

in it.

I’m still looking for the perfect build for Caitlyn as I’m not sure if AD or AP would make her the best possible or which build goes well with a type of play style. I’ve noticed that some champions fit my play style very well with any kind of build (just too bad they’re all low tiers), but it’s different for Caitlyn. I’ve checked Leaguecraft.com for builds but didn’t find a comparative guide. If you’re a LoL player and have experience with Caitlyn, please leave your suggestion below in the comments :) Thank you

I wrote this article for the map Summoner’s Rift and not Dominion. I have purchased her with hard earned IP, but haven’t had the time and right condition to play her in Dominion. But I’m sure her ult is good to knock back enemies who are trying to cap the tower.

Free Alistar Champion + Skin
