Breaking my Back(log): PvP

Once upon a time, I refused to play PvP games. I was just terrible at them, and therefore chose to avoid them. Then in 2010 I started playing League of Legends with my friend John. LoL was fun, but I was still terrible, so I walked away from the PvP realm once again. Over the last year or so however, the genre has drawn me back in.

I’ve been dabbling with quite a few, and want to share my thoughts on each, and what my mindset is when I play one or the other.

Breaking my Back(log) Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition

This entry into my backlog may look a little different. I’m experimenting with some new formats. Let me know what you think in the comments.

I recently started playing Divinity: Original Sin: Enhanced Edition (EE). I saw that the second game in the series was released and figured it was about as good a time as any to finally try and cross the first off my list.

Summoner's Journal

So let's start this entry by getting the unfortunate news out of the way right quick; after this article I shall be taking a short hiatus from writing, due to work related travel over the next two months. I will miss writing for EGF during this time, but look forward to coming back and starting anew in March (hopefully with two months worth of thoughts and ideas pent up, ready to be released by the proverbial “quill”).

Before I go, I wanted to share a thought that has crossed my mind often as of late;

League is Life.

Summoner's Journal: Balancing League

Finding the time to play video games has become harder and harder with each passing year (growing older is the worst, but I still refuse to grow up). Like a high school’s art program, video games are the hobby which receives the quickest cuts when I find myself strapped for free time. It’s often easier to unwind by watching an episode of 30 minute TV show, than get invested into a game 30 minutes at a time.

A Summoner's Journal: The Meta has Changed

What an exciting time it is to be playing LoL. Season 6 has come to a close (Congratulations to SKT T1 on once again being crowned World Champions!), the preseason for season 7 has started, and changes are afoot.

Summoner's Journal: Entry 2

Changing to this new “Journal as opposed to Journey” has been an interesting development for me, and how I prepare/create content for this website. It has also allowed me to take a few steps back from my “play” interaction with LoL, and examine more of my interaction within the community of LoL.

A Summoner's Journey: Transition

Here, I come to a crossroads. The world spins madly on and on with no end. My work and duties dictate how I am able to spend my time. Yet, with what little time I have to myself, I choose to return here to this digital journal, pouring what little soul left I have onto the digital paper so as to try and find some sliver of solace. Keeping up with this journey has been rough at times, and I have found my style changes seemingly with each new moon.

A Summoner's Journey: Changing a Main

LoL is a game of mechanics and who can play their champion better. Obviously, the best way to excel at playing a champion (and League in general for that matter) is to mainly play said champion; i.e. “Maining” a champion.
