Hacker made around $1000 daily off League of Legends

Free to play games aren’t always necessarily free, at least not with all the money that gets (optionally) spent on in-game items. With millions of League of Legends players all around the world, Riot Games were home to an incredibly large amount of sensitive information and such. Somebody found a way in, and used what they found to make quite a bit of money.

Dota 2 vs League of Legends: Company philosophies

Firefly or Babylon 5? Superman or Batman? Star Wars or Star Trek? There are so many geek debates that we could enter into, but the latest and most ferocious is League of Legends (LoL) or Dota 2? Both are wildly popular games in the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre - so what sets them apart?

Trials of the Poro teases new LoL Champion

It's that time again - time for LoL to show off a new champion for those who are always hungry for new ways to dominate. I am seriously enjoying Riot's videos lately, and this one is far too adorable.

League of Legends is humanising their bots

I really enjoy playing against bots in League of Legends - Co-op vs AI can be a really fun mode. It seems I'm not the only one who feels this way; even experienced players frequently play against bots. Now, Riot is tinkering with the bots to meet player demands.

Riot’s April Fool’s mode to stay?

I missed April Fools' this year - I was enduring the marathon journey back to South Africa from LA. It seems everyone had fun, and Riot's prank is hilarious and awesome. In fact, it's so popular that it may just become a new game mode.

Uncharted 4 game director leaves Naughty Dog

Coming just weeks after Uncharted’s creative lead, Amy Hennig, confirmed her departure from Naughty Dog, comes word that the latest game in the series is now without a game director. Justin Richmond, who was working on the latest, PlayStation 4 bound Uncharted as its game director, has confirmed he’s left developer Naughty Dog.

Match fixing in LoL leads to suicide attempt

Traditional sports are plagued by all kinds of controversies - doping, personal player scandals and match fixing cause outrage, but are expected. It appears that eSports is reaching that point, too, as a match fixing scandal was revealed at the highest levels of play. Unfortunately, it also led a player to try to take his own life.

League of Legends tries out Team Builder

I will confess -  I'm still fairly n00b when it comes to League of Legends. There are only really two or three champions that I can play as, and I prefer to play them in specific lanes. However, this can lead to issues when other people want to play as my preferred champions. Now, Riot is going to try making my life easier.

League of Legends has how many players?

Some people think Dota 2 is huge. Sure, it can often get half a million people playing a day - that's nothing to sneeze at. But League of Legends is in a, uh, league of its own.

Stop accusing Riot of being greedy

Season 4 of League of Legends is upon us - if you haven't already, now would be a good time to fiddle with your masteries and whatnot. However, there is no need to download a new client; Riot isn't releasing a new one for the new season. Some people took to Reddit to rage and call Riot greedy. Warning, their response includes some less-than family-friendly language.

League of Legends pros banned from streaming other games

Ah, eSports - so fun to watch an association go through the growing pains of becoming accepted and professional. The thing that makes eSports so unique is that we expect players to act like gamers, while also being professional eSports athletes. Riot has taken a stance on this that has raised some eyebrows.

League of Legends limited skins make their return

League of Legends players listen up. Riot Games has announced that some limited edition skins will be available again, for a..uh… limited time only.

Richest League of Legends Players

Alright, we get it - gaming is officially a career option. Your mother was wrong when she said playing video games were a waste of time. Fine, but how good a career choice is it?

Scrap that! League of Legends still kicks Dota 2’s ass

Yesterday we reported that Dota 2 has surpassed League of Legends as the most played PC game in the West (US and Europe), according to a report by DFC Intelligence. As it turns out the report was completely wrong.
