Arcane – Act Two Review

A few years have passed since the end of Act One. Hextech gates are now fully operational in Piltover, heralding an era of progress and untold riches… and increased tension among Houses and criminal kingpings, as they wrestle each other for a slice of the Hextech pie.

Riot’s first foray into the entertainment universe has, so far, been a complete success! With the release of Arcane part 1, Riot has put themselves on the sumpworks map! Where other game studios, like Blizzard, have tried and failed, Riot has managed to find a footing.

RubinZoo Stream Recap

What’s up, gamers? Monte here, back to bring you guys another RubinZoo stream recap! This week’s recap won’t be quite as long as the previous one and I’ve attempted to put sub-header’s with timestamps for every major point. There was a lot of discussion surrounding the changes to Targon in the last patch so I’ve clustered those into their own section.

Top 8 Decks $300 GGToor Tournament

Congrats to Seku for winning the GGTooR $300 tournament in yet another star studded field. Mastering Runeterra Pro Team Member and Mulligan Master WhatAmI made yet ANOTHER top cut. Seeing the same players in the top cut of tournaments weekend in and out really shows how high skill expression is in Legends of Runeterra and bodes well for it becoming an Esport with the same players rising to the top consistently.

Patch 2.18 Card Review

Its Jasensational, back at it again to review the latest patch together with all of you. With patch 2.18 introducing a whopping 25+ nerfs and buffs to cards, there’s a lot to cover.

Jason Fleurant

A New Meta!

This patch touches on almost every strong card in the format and buffs a lot of other cards. So my assumption is that going forward we will see much larger patches which I am all for.

Patch 2.18 Predictions

With the Beyond the Bandlewood Expansion, we’ve had, in my opinion, one of the most diverse and quickly evolving metas in RuneTerra, both on ladder and in tournament formats.

Without the aspect of LANs, pro players are not receiving nearly as much recognition as their Valorant or League of Legends counterparts, one comes to wonder; What is it like to be a pro player in LoR?

NEW Patch 2.17.0 Summary

While today’s patch notes didn’t bring us any balance changes they did bring the Battle Academia skin line to LoR! The Battle Academia line is one of League’s most popular and I’m thrilled to know I will soon be able to use this alternate art for some of my favourite champs!
