Braum

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.

For the non-video viewers among you, it’s an adorable little animated short showing off a Poro, trying to dodge arrows in a quest for a snack. Just as we’re sure he’s going to die from the volley of arrows, a shadow covers and protects him. Then, we get to see the big brauny saviour, rumoured to be called Braum who tells the little creature not to worry, next time the Poro can have his back.

Beyond being a cute teaser (that racked up 4.5 million views over the Easter Weekend), it shows off what we can expect from the new champion. With a massive shield like that, and those enormous pectorals, we can assume he’ll be a tank/bruiser. Right? Then again, he could just be an amazingly buff and manly (note the epic moustache) support champion. Either way, it’s a cool video and I’m keen to see what they have to show off with Braum.

It has really been far too long since I jumped into League of Legends. There are so many champions now – I was overwhelmed when I started all those years ago, but now it must be really daunting for new players to even try and give the various champions a try. I should really get back into the MOBA scene and try out some of the new champions… but I’d probably just play as Ms Fortune anyway. Or Tristana. Have you guys made headway in trying out all the champions, or do you still just stick with your favourites?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

    This moba train has completely left me behind :P Sometimes I wonder whether I’m missing out… I doubt that anything can ever again live up to the carnage of my 40k days fighting for the emperor

    Now imagine how funny it would be if the Champion was the bunny and the big guy is just like an ulti or something :P #trollol

    If you take your MOBAs seriously, you’ll need to know and use all champs in order to counter the other team’s picks. MOBAs are not for the casual gamer
