  1. Okie dokie,    An ADK introduction post. Where to start...   Well my first name is Brett, I have been into online gaming since it's inception. Also participating in BBS's and Forums for longer as those came along before gaming per se. For those who weren't there, it was hexpads and pencils mapping co-ords on paper and dreaming of graphics. Used to wait till 11:50 pm to log in to get 2 days turns (2 * 10 moves) in one sitting.    RL setting is Vancouver, BC. I have 2 sons and a nice house in the burbs. Gaming is on a fairly decent i7gaming rig. Hobbies include vintage HiFi, rebuilding old sound systems and stereos. I am an avid gardener and enjoy "home projects". Other forums I participate in include cigars, vintage audio, and some left coast politics. Enjoy whisky and beer, cooking and fishing, listening to music and hanging out with friends and family.   Play BF almost exclusively now, though lots of history with other genres and titles. Have played through all the BF games, faves were Vietnam and 1942 but am liking this as well. Not much into console gaming, though I do have a WiiU (don't judge!).    BF4 I play for fun, enjoy the pace and gameplay dynamics. At this point in life I enjoy some level of "friendly banter" in-game. Really tired of overdone homophobia and racism in gaming, usually leave server where it gets too much. I don't go koo-koo, just move on and wait for another day. I particularly enjoy the no-explosive server for a change of pace. I generally spit my time between it and other servers when on.   Skill wise I am middle of the pack, but heh, us oldtimers just don't have the reflexes of the youngsters anymore. Besides, my RL distractions eat up over about 30% of my gaming talent :). And I still use smileys when I feel like it, but damn near no lol's.   Any questions, shoot me a message.    Peace and see ya in game.
  2. Final Stand? Hardly

    For those of you who are great Battlefield series fanatics, you have seen the ups and downs of the series, primarily in the Single Player Campaign area, as well as the latest mutliplayer in Battlefield 4, preceding the latest "SOS" multiplayer patches, which was primarily fixed due to the launch of the CTE (Community Test Environment). But it seems like DICE and EA are trying to make it up with their last two DLC's, Final Stand, and, well one we do not have a name for yet. But it is confirmed that Battlefield 4 DLC does not end with Final Stand. As a statement released by EA News seen HERE, they have decided to create yet another DLC for Battlefield 4. This time, they are looking for nothing but player and community feedback on which classic maps you would like to see in the next Battlefield 4 DLC (You can actually participate in the poll HERE). What is even better? The DLC will be completely free. Yes, free, confirmed by a developer over twitter. Recently the DICE development team has been going back to Battlefield 3, most likely to consider new maps for the DLC, and the fluid gameplay. I would not be surprised if many people vote for classic maps from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, as this game seemed to have a lot of positive feedback from the community. There is still more information to be released as EA and DICE seem to be trying to have this information secretive for now, as expected.  As a tribute to this article, you can now buy Battlefield 4 for $5 HERE. Also, expect another beta for Hardline before it releases!  @[member=Virtue]
  3. Update

    Figured I would update you all on the current events in the ADK LoL community.   I've got a Twitch overlay that's definitely not amazing but it's better than some. It's just for the LoL client so it's got all the cut-outs you need. I got some assistance from google and I threw an ADK logo on it (don't worry, it's legit no copyright bullshit). I'm still working on putting other info on there like the TS server and whatnot but it will work for now.    I've refreshed all of the recruitment posts on reddit, the league of legends boards, and teamfind. I'm recruiting for normals and casual play since half the post on there are PLAT+ and ALL DIAMOND TEAM LF DIAMOND. I will continue to update those and send out messages to players as I get responses and I usually just find some chill people and invite them to ADK.    Videos, I haven't started the series that I want to quite yet because I've been editing some other videos, trying to get something that's quality to put on ADK. I'm new to all the photoshop/editing stuff so it's taking me a lot longer to do things people can usually do in a day or less.    There really has been a disappearance of support for this section but changes are coming. If any of you ever need anything at all or want to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to PM me or catch me in TS. I try to make myself available to all as much as I can. I'm friendly, I won't bite.   Thank you all and on a personal note my husband and I just put an offer on our first house. I hope to god it gets accepted but if not, it's a back and fourth process that takes time. Anyways, thank you to all of you who have been helpful in-game and out. You all are awesome.
  4. With all the changes that we've seen in this preseason between season 4 and 5, Riot decides to throw us a bone...or just more to learn/re-learn. Whatever way you choose to look at a new champion being announced. So much change and so little time to learn and test things out. I am a firm believer in change is good. That being said, I introduce the newest champion Rek'Sai.     Rek'Sai                                                 Her lore comes off of the League of Legends website:   " The shifting Shuriman sands harbor countless tales, and while most speak of its long-forgotten civilization, others reveal something else: terror within the dunes. The nomads and traders that cross through Runterra's golden lands know the stories well enough, the bloody remains of their kin testament to the void beast below. And while some enter Shurima unaware of the monster's fearsome reputation, few last long once they enter Rek'Sai's lands."     Abilities   Rek'Sai has two forms: Burrowed and Unburrowed. Her abilities are different for each form.    Passive - Fury of the Xer'Sai: Rek gains fury when she attacks her enemies. Burrowing consumes her fury, briefly regenerating health.   Q - Queen's Wrath/ Prey Seeker:  Unburrowed - Queen's Wrath: Rek'Sai lashes out, dealing damage to all nearby enemies with the next three basic attacks. Burrowed - Prey Seeker: Rek'Sai fires out a pulse of void energy in a straight line skillshot that detonates on the first enemy struck, damaging and revealing the target and all nearby enemies also hit by the missile's explosion.   W - Burrow/Unburrow: Unburrowed - Burrowed: Rek'Sai burrows underground, gaining Tremor Sense (a unique ability that shows Rek'Sai all enemy movement in a big area around her) and increased movement speed at the expense of vision range and access to her basic abilities. She ignores unit collision as she moves around.  Burrowed - Unburrow: Rek'Sai bursts out into the open, knocking up and damaging nearby enemies.   E - Furious Bite/ Tunnel: Unburrowed - Furious Bite: Rek'Sai bites a target champion, dealing increasing damage based on her fury, or true damage if she has max fury. Burrowed - Tunnel: Rek'Sai digs toward a target location, creating a pair of long-lasting tunnels at the two ends of her path.    R - Void Rush: Passive - Rek'Sai gains attack speed. Active - Rek'Sai channels briefly before burrowing and dashing towards any of her tunnels, briefly gaining significant movement speed once she emerges.  
  5. This guide is from Vander whom has a 62% winrate with Thresh right now.  I would have used Bloodwater's guide since he's got a 63% winrate on Thresh but his runes and masteries are situational and I think Vander builds him the best.      Runes   x1 +2.25 Attack Damage Quints   x2 +52.00 Health Quints   x9  +8.55 Attack Damage reds   x9 +9.00 Armor yellows   x9 +12.06  Flat Magic Resist blues   Masteries   Offensive - 9 Fury - 4/4 Butcher - 1/1 Brute Force - 3/3 Martial Mastery - 1/1   Defensive - 21 Block - 2/2 Recovery - 2/2 Unyielding - 1/1 Veteran's Scars - 3/3 Oppression - 1/1 Juggernaut - 1/1 Hardiness - 3/3 Resistance - 3/3 Legendary Guardian - 4/4 Tenacious - 1/1   Utility - 0   Ability Order  E, Q, W, E, E, R, E, W, E, W, R, W, W, Q, E (I know this isn't complete but you want to continue to max R when it becomes available and the rest of your abilities. If you want to max your damage output first max E. If you want to decrease the cooldown on your hook, max Q first. It's very important early game to put a point in each ability since they are all amazing abilities to have.)     INCOMPLETE  - MORE TO COME AFTER DINNER.
  6. This guide is incomplete. It's the best one out there that I've been able to find and I've only played Kalista once and did okay with her (it was more lack of skill and understanding than items or runes). This guide is created by a Diamond II player (Twitchhy) and just reading seemed to make sense with Kalista's kit. It's subject to changes just as preseason will be. This will no doubt change with it.       Runes 3x +4.5% attack speed Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed 5x +1.00 armor Greater Seal of Armor 4x +8.00 health Greater Seal of Health 9x +1.34 magic resist Greater Glyph of Magic Resist 9x +0.95 attack damage Greater Mark of Attack Damage     Masteries   Offense - 21    Fury - 4/4 Butcher - 1/1 Brute Force - 3/3 Feast - 1/1 Spell Weaving - 1/1 Martial Mastery - 1/1 Executioner - 3/3 Warlord - 3/3 Dangerous Game - 1/1 Frenzy - 1/1 Devastating Strikes - 1/3 Havoc - 1/1   Defense - 9   Block - 2/2 Recovery - 2/2 Unyielding - 1/1 Veteran's Scars - 3/3 Juggernaut - 1/1   Offense - 0     Ability Order   Q, E, W, E, E, R, E, Q, E, Q, R, Q, Q, W, W, R, W, W   Basically, you want to max your E first, then your Q then W and R as you can.     Item Build   Basic ADC start - Doran's Blade, health pot, trinket   First Back - Bilgewater Cutlass (builds into BotRK)   Core Items - IE, Greaves, GA, LW, Statik Shiv, BotRK   Situational   If you need MR, build a Banshee's Veil.   For more mobility/kiting, build a Youmuu's Ghostblade   If team is targeting you in most fights, build BT   If the next team fight is the deciding factor in the game, definitely get a GA.   If you are maxed out on items, sell your greaves and buy a zephyr.   Possibilities   You could build a Runaan's Hurricane on her. The attack speed boost is a plus.   Quicksilver Sash is good against a team with hard cc and debuffs.       This guide is an extremely rough draft of how to build Kalista. Until I can figure out how to transfer a guide template to the posts in this section, this is what I could provide. I hope it can help out and if more clarification is needed, please let me know. 
  7. Hello friends and gamers of ADK. I wanted to bring the attention to virtual reality gaming as the technology is coming before our eyes and the potential is amazing.   VR= Virtual reality   Oculus Rift   http://www.oculus.com/   Most of you may have already heard of - the Oculus Rift. a virtual reality headset that lets you see first person in game as if you were there with the ability to look around. Something I've been very very excited for sometime and hopefully in 2015 I shall get my hands on a pair.      Cyberith   http://cyberith.com/about/     But it dosen't stop there. Recently I've been doing some research on some phenomenal technologies that could very well change gaming forever eventually. I'll post a couple links to amaze you if you have not seen it yet.   Cyberith is a new edition to the VR realm. The technology allows you to actually run,walk and crouch and possibly even jump in real life and replicate those movements to a character in a video game. Combined with the Oculus rift headset the potential of fun is amazing. The issue with new VR technology is the support it needs from new video games. Keyboard and mouse gaming could eventually become a thing of the past but I doubt anytime in the next year or two.      Check this out. Cyberith + Oculus Rift    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8lmf3OFrms Check out the youtube page to see all of the videos.        YEI Technology    https://www.yeitechnology.com/     The last VR tech I would like to talk about is YEI tech VR. I believe this type of technology will become the core of VR gaming.  Its sensory technology to pick up body movements. Legs, arms, upper body. It will completely immerse you into the game as if you were there.    This video also made by cyberith includes all the above three technologies used together at once. It truly is the holy grail of virtual gaming   Cyberith + YEI Technology + Oculus Rift  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXtysynpc-U&list=UUqNO2PNJYx9G5yepVEm09bg&index=9 ^Though I do not know why he holds a fully automatic assault rifle with one hand like a weirdo or you cannot preform that type of action, I'm really not sure. And the game itself looks a little choppy it still demonstrates how unimaginable this technology can be when used together.    EDIT: The 3/4 of the way into the video to the ending is fucking hilarious and at the same time makes me frown because I realize that tea bagging is going to take on a wider definition in VR gaming and the endless tea bagging possibilites that will be done on to others while others will do on to you.    We may all come to a point where movements are no longer reflected by the pressing of a key or the click of a mouse but the reflection of our very own body movements. You could wave to a friend. You could lift your gun over barracades and blindly shoot while giving a thumbs up to your friend next to you. You could dual wield two swords in combat. And the overall plus of this VR technology is you might be exercising while your playing and be having too much fun to even realize it.      Fat hardcore gamers will be a thing of the past!!   Go out to the bar and get asked how you got into such good shape and reply "hours of playing battlefield 3".    although most of these tech's are still under testing and development, its a huge step in the right dirrection and I can't wait for one of these companies to help sell these in a final product package together and optimized with Video game developers in mind as well that would like to use all three in their next game. Future games built and optimized with game play designed with this technology as the primary controls has HUGE potential and the gold rush for VR gaming in the market  for video games and tech alike is almost here ladies and gentleman.      VR technology could reach a point of so many people developing mental illnesses that affect people to be unable to differ real life from virtual reality. I mean since the beginning of games like Grand theft auto I believe there have been cases of gamers who mistake reality for virtual reality and thats just with a television alone though I can't confirm this at the moment, some research is required. I believe that the generations that used keyboard-mouse and controller that eventually use the VR technology will still maintain a mental border between life and video games. What I'm not sure about is the generations that are born right into VR tech and only know that method of gaming. How will it affect their brain? I really can't say for sure. But I'm still all for it. Bring on the badass VR games.      EDIT: I would love to see an ADK organize a roster eventually when these technologies become more available to form some type of VR group that can play together. That would be cool. 
  8. I've noticed there isnt a section for starcraft 2 on the ADK website. While this doesnt bother me i just want to post this to see if anyone here plays Starcraft 2 and would like to play it sometime. I most likely wont ask to add it as a game cause there may not be a large amount of people that play it.

  10. I took this information from an AMA challenger player who does ranked 3s. Really good information if anybody wanted to try doing ranked 3s. They are actually super fun.     Team Comps: At the moment, abusing the double support-style mages and a strong brawler jungle. The ideal comp for us is Lulu top, Xin Zhao jungle, and Karma bot. Other successful comps similar to this one is subbing Morgana for the Karma or Lulu and J4 for the Xin Zhao (in case Lulu or Karma gets banned). Lulu is god in ranked 3s and his team will always try to run her either top or bot lane. Another comp that works well is a strong top laner (Renekton/Riven/Darius), J4 jungle, and Rumble bot. We typically prefer early game team comps since Rumble needs a bit to get going but keep him as a backup comp. The strongest champs in 3s right now are:   Top: Renekton, Darius, J4, Gnar, Pantheon, Lulu, Nidalee, Jayce, Maokai, Olaf, Wukong (don’t blind pick a Wukong, make sure he has a good matchup first)   Jungle: Xin Zhao, J4, Lee Sin, Nocturne, Vi, Amumu (need strong laners to pick), Kha’Zix, Shyvana   Bot: Syndra, Annie, Morgana, Karma, Lulu, Vel’Koz, Orianna, Lissandra, Ziggs, Zyra, Ahri, Rumble (only if you are really good w/ him) These are not listed in a particular order. There are many other champs that are strong in 3v3 but those are the most successful on his team. It’s champs they all have the best synergy with. Communication and teamwork will triumph over “which team has the most broken champs”. Make sure your team is on the same page when making plays.   Objectives: You should focus a lot more on altars rather than Vilemaw. Unless your team has a big lead, never fight when the enemy team has double altars. Just play passive and wait for it to unlock. Focus your fights around taking the enemy’s altar so that you can be the ones engaging rather than reacting. Don’t try and sneak Vilemaw when all three of the enemy team are up.   Jungling The biggest factor in deciding which META to run is which one your team is the most comfortable playing. All METAs can be played successfully in high elo 3s so it’s really just preference. We chose to use the jungle META due to the fact that 1 mistake early when running 2 people top can often completely lose the game for you. Running a jungler allows for a little more breathing room in the event of a mistake due to all players getting solo exp. and CS. We also don't like having 1 player bringing nothing more than tankiness and cc to team fights; we prefer everyone to do damage. Underrated champs:   Lulu - She isn't prioritized nearly enough for how damn strong she is. One of the few champs that can turn a lost team fight around after losing a person with her crazy cc and kite. Azir - Requires you to be extremely good with him, but if you start with Forbidden Idol and rush Nomicon, his damage spikes pretty early. Also great burst and safety between his E and ult. Brand - Ridiculous damage, especially when fighting in the jungle. Cho - You see him more in lower elos than high, but the damage you can put out with him for how tanky he gets is just nutty. Volibear - Pretty much same as Cho. Trundle - Don't see this guy much at all lately but if you get to 20+ minutes with him and you aren't really far behind, he becomes so so difficult to kill. Vel’Koz - He falls into the 'under prioritized' category. There are only a small number of teams that I've seen who prioritize running Vel'Koz. Great waveclear and pushing power - crazy poke, especially when ahead - face melting lazor that shreks your whole team.   Victor - We've run him a few times with good success but never see any other teams running him. The short-ish range can be an issue vs some teams but his line damage + Gravity Field is amazing for jungle fights.
  11. ADK Blue

    ADK Blue is another team created by myself with the people that came to the site wanting to play ranked but couldn't get in with the other team.    I did it to 1. keep them interested and wanting to be a part of ADK and 2. to scrimmage with the other team and create some friendly rivalry. We are still filling roster spots so PM me if you are interested. Include role and availability please. We'll do ranked 5s as we can but if we have to start playing ranked 3s due to the availability issues, I think that would be fun.    We played our first two games and won 1, lost 1. The mid laner ended up quitting after that match but that happens often. People come and go on a team when it's starting out. I think the main goal of this team is to have fun and work on the basics. Winning lanes, pushing, objective control, ganking, and vision. Walk before you run.    I've got 3 more open roster spots that I plan to fill with ADK applicants/members. Once I've got it all organized, I will update this. Being a team is basically about communication, teamwork, and picking yourself up when things look bad.    Have a good day.
  12.                      Treacherously murdered, Kalista rose as a specter, twisted by the horrific power of the Shadow Isles. In death, she offers Runeterrans a proposition: surrender your soul to the Spear of Vengeance and she will exact revenge on your betrayers.   Items The Black Spear Active: Kalista offers a pact to an allied champion, should they agree, the item is consumed and the pair are Soul-Bound for the remainder of the game. When accepted, the binding enables Soul-Marked, a passive on Sentinel, and allows Kalista to use Fate’s Call when she unlocks it.   Abilities   Passive: Martial Poise Rather than cancelling the basic attack animation, a move order hops Kalista in the direction of the click after she completes her attack. Kalista leaps farther when moving away from her target.   Q: Pierce Kalista hurls a spear, damaging the first enemy struck and adding a stack of Rend. Pierce also procs Martial Poise.   W: Sentinel Passive: Soul-Marked—When Kalista and her bound ally attack a minion, monster or enemy champion at the same time, they deal bonus magic damage. Active: Kalista commands a sentinel to keep watch over an area. The sentinel patrols back and forth in a line a few times. Vulnerable to attacks from behind, sentinels see in a cone in front of them and scream if they spot an enemy.   (They are testing out decreased mana cost from 25 to 20 at all ranks on the PBE server 11/19/2014)   E: Rend Kalista’s basic attacks and the spear from Pierce lodge in their target for a short time. Rend causes her to rip the spears from her enemies, slowing them and dealing increased damage for each spear rent from the target. Rend’s cooldown resets if it secures a kill on an enemy unit. The spears stack infinitely, only disappearing if Kalista fails to keep up her assault.   R: Fate’s Call Kalista repositions her bound ally next to her, making them untargetable and disabling their spells. During Fate’s Call, Kalista’s Soul-Bound gains a new ability, which allows the Soul-Bound to dash in a target direction, knocking up enemies they strike.   Gameplay   Kalista is a marksman who cooperates with her Soul-Bound to deal substantial sustained damage, access her full repertoire of abilities and wither her enemies under her relentless assault. Kalista’s potential is unlocked by solid communication and cooperation with allies rather than raw mechanical skill. While still capable in her own right, Kalista misses out on Soul-Marked's bonus damage and effective use of her ult without direct cooperation from her ally.   She's extremely mobile and her amazing kiting will improve your overall kiting skill as an ADC. She requires a lot of communication and teamwork but that's what makes her fun. She is complex but worth learning. Unfortunately, she is too good to be true so a nerf will probably follow in the near future patches.    During the laning phase, Kalista follows the familiar marksman pattern of farm and harass with one important difference: Martial Poise makes kiting an important part of her kit. With it, Kalista can reposition after every basic attack, hopping in and out of danger to attack opponents and gain superior positioning. Soul-Marked allows Kalista and her ally to speedily crush down each minion, forcing their enemies to farm under turret and nearly guaranteeing a level two ding ahead of their opponents. With the lane pushed, Kalista can send a Sentinel up the river to keep watch for incoming threats. This ability takes some vision pressure off her support, allowing both to spend less time at base and more time dictating the pace of the lane. Trading, Kalista lands Pierce to proc Rend, poking with terrifying speed. While Kalista decides when to answer Fate’s Call, her Soul-Bound, often a support, ultimately decides where it’ll make its impact. If either Kalista or her Soul-Bound land significant crowd control on an enemy champion, Fate’s Call makes the perfect tool to damage and lock down enemies, setting Kalista up to sling the fatal spear.   Teamfights   Without massive range or an escape, Kalista relies on backline positioning and attentive protection from her allies. Before any teamfight breaks out, Kalista should use Sentinel to try to spot out enemies on the edges of the fray. With the battle underway, Kalista metes out strong, consistent punishment with auto attacks, staying safe with precise management of Martial Poise. Tricky to position in teamfights but if you remember to kite enemies, she can easily get kills.   Fate’s Call   The ult’s versatility makes it good for peel, a wombo starter or a rescue for your Soul-Bound—used to its full potential, it can be all three. Against dive comps, a timely Fate’s Call stops a chase dead in its tracks and serves as a counter-engage for your team to follow up. If Kalista’s Soul-Bound is caught out, a quick ultimate spirits them to safety, burning whatever crowd control the enemies expended and offering the option of dis-or-re-engage. Brave Kalista players (and braver Soul-Bound) can kick off wombo-combos or follow up on a hard initiation, creating the space Kalista needs to clean up.   Synergy – She works well with:   Leona - the Radiant Dawn Tanky supports like the Radiant Dawn are perfect for Fate’s Call. After being tossed into the fray by Kalista, Leona can hang onto Zenith Blade to zoom around teamfights applying crowd control where needed. Bonus points for proc-ing Sunlight and Soul-Marked at the same time.   Janna - the Storm's Fury On face, it may not seem like a great idea to toss the fragile Janna into the enemy team, but Fate’s Call and Monsoon combine to split enemy teams.   Malphite - Shard of the Monolith Imagine Fate’s Call and Unstoppable Force smacking sequentially into the enemy team—the area of effect knockup double tap will win you most fights.   Struggles against:   Zyra - Rise of the Thorns Kalista’s slow basic attack leaves her vulnerable to the lockdown of Grasping Roots. The Spear of Vengeance must carefully manage Martial Poise to survive this lane opponent.   Ezreal - the Prodigal Explorer Ezreal’s kit dulls the edge of Kalista’s spears: He outpokes her with Mystic Shot and can escape the danger posed by Rend and Fate’s Call with a quick Arcane Shift.   Master Yi - the Wuju Bladesman Highlander causes problems for Kalista since her primary escape tool applies a slow. If Kalista and her ally can’t nail Master Yi with Fate’s Call, she’s likely to be chopped up, Wuju Style.   I took a lot of this information from the League of Legends website. I took out what was irrelevant and changed some wording around.

  14. After our member meeting last night, I wanted to update everyone on where we're at with this section and what we are wanting to do with it.   @[member='Zudamour'] is heading up a ranked team to represent ADK. They plan on playing their matches on Monday nights and on the weekends. If you are interested in joining, please contact him.   I'm going to try and head up normals. If you want to stop by for a pickup game or if you just have time for one and you don't want to go at it completely alone, please let me know. I'm on a lot and I creep the forums. Message me on here or you can come talk to me in TS. If any of you have any suggestions at all for trying to get more people involved please feel free to tell me. I'm going to try to use creative means by not only trying to get more ADK members to play with us but to try and get more people to join ADK. My goal is to try and hold an event, schedule streaming times, and reaching out through various channels. If we stream, may be we could do some fun matches...like crazy champs in roles they don't usually play (blitzcrank jungle, TF adc) or we could do some custom games.   One idea I wanted to share with all of you was possibly having a "tutorial" night. If you are below level 30 and you wanted a friendly environment to learn or wanted someone to answer a few of your questions, you could do so. I could try and pull a couple people in to help out with this but I played a couple of games with @ADK Kieran last night and I had a blast. We all just played and I would just kind of say what I was thinking if it was important. If any of you still wanted to give LoL a shot, we could play some games in a non-stressful environment and address questions as they come up.   Let me know if that sounds like it would help bring some of you back or get you started playing LoL. It can be a very toxic community but ADK is not full of toxicity. Everyone makes mistakes and if you want someone to just play with and hang out in a normal game, let me know.
  15. Any NA and EUW Summoners

    Hey all,   I don't know how many of you get on reddit but if you have the chance check out the subreddit /r/summonerschool. It's a great way to find tips, strats, and champ information as well as ask people who know. There are lots of experienced players on there offering all sorts of help.    They also run a program every Friday. It's called summoner's workshop and it's for Bronze-Silver players wanting to get better. You scrim people around the same skill level as you but they give you a coach. Most of mine have been plat but I know there are a few golds/diamonds who also do it. They have a stream here and they broadcast every Friday.   I know I didn't include many details but I've participated in them a few times. More information is included on the subreddit, just search for summoners workshop. It has all the information you need. The coaches are usually pretty good, I'd just take a few points away from what they say and work on them. Some of them can get a bit nit picky so just do your best and have fun. 
  16. Kansas City anyone?

    Anybody from kc? Reply and let's have a lan party!
  17. Hi There!

    Hello fellow gamers, my name is Anthony (gamertag for most games is TheGhostTrain) I'm 22 and play games such as Battlefield 4, League Of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, Path Of Exile, Marvel Heroes, and sometimes World of Warcraft oh and I also own Minecraft. I'm here to make friends and have a fun experience playing games with the community. I have some background in networking and PC troubleshooting so I can possibly help anyone that is having problems with there PC. I also have a very high intellect on Horror Movies lol which isn't important but I like to put it out there. Well that's me and nice to meet everyone.
  18. Where does the line cross?

    Where does the line cross between being a passionate gamer and a No Lifer?   As much as i love playing games i don't really have the energy to play more than 1 hour at a time. I sort of wish i could play more. But i see a lot of ignorant hate from people calling gamers unsociable no lifers. Playing video games, is a hobby. If i told you i had been practicing on my drumset for four hours straight you would go "Woah, that's amazing!" but if i told you i had been Deathmatching on Battlefield for four hours straight most people would say "What? Dude, don't you have a life or something?"   Screw those people.   Technically you can be a "No Lifer" from doing anything. Exercising all day, painting all day, using facebook all day, or gaming all day. No life would mean not being sociable and spending almost all fo your time doing one thing, also, online gaming is more sociable then most hobbies. The point would be to distrubute your time perfectly. What would that be? How much time should you spend playing on a workday compared to a weekend? And what would you priorotize? If i'm playing any my roomate/mother/whatever tells me to wash the dishes and i say no, is that alright? Would that count as being busy? If it's anything more severe like greeting guests or eating dinner is that just unsociable?   What, do, you, think?

  20. My name is Xavier , and i am a 16 year old high school student who games in my free time and weekends.   I like Video Games obviously, and when i found ADK i was pretty excited to join a large community with people who play a lot of similar games as me. I Stream many games on Twitch.tv (Xgamingproduction) and record video for my youtube channel. (Xgamingpro)   I am also into game development. I program, design, and test my own created games. none have been released to the public, but i am working on some medium sized game hoping to release to the PC platform for little to no cost at all. I like technology, my entire setup was designed by myself, and i am constantly looking at better parts for future reference.   In school i take AP history and AP math and have a standard GPA of 3.8 I take programming, design, and computer science classes in my school which help me get further into my game design interest. I am planning to Major in Game design, programming, or computer engineering, whichever way i choose to go at the end of high school.   I Play some sports for school including football, hockey, and baseball, but i like to nerd around with technology to get the upper edge on the future, because technology cant do anything but get better.   While other can stress over video games or even rage, i tend to find video games a stress reliever, a hobby to pass time and have fun with friends. And joining this community will open new opportunities to meet new people and have fun.   Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction and have a great gaming xp.

    I was wondering what the pros and cons of each processor are and which is better for gaming overall. Many people have suggested an i5 for gaming since I won't be video rendering and won't need the hyperthreading of the i7 but my friend keeps on nagging on about how much better AMDs are due to 'more maths cores' and such (I have no idea what he's on about :P) he also says they're better value for money so what do you guys think?   Cheers - Ingenious Ion
