Apparently Jinx was added to League three years ago on my birthday! I got her on my crew right away – something that (at the point) hadn’t happened since Vi and until Ekko.

Her amazing video played a big role in this too. It got me interested in the music too, which is how I found the band Djerv (whose vocalist sings Get Jinxed) and similar female-fronted bands, mostly psychobilly.

And if that wasn’t enough to be grateful for, Jinx proceeded to become my main AD (swiftly replacing Tristana) and carried me all the way to silver 2 – and I haven’t been (or cared to try to be) any higher since.

Her Japanese voice is crazy good too, with all the grinning insanity one could fit in one character. Damn now I want to play League again.


What it means to play a tank is quite apparently not all so self-evident to certain players. (Obviously I’m talking about the wonderful bronzies I’m stuck with for the time being.) A tank is not defined by its item set. You can have all the armor in the world, but if you don’t act like a tank you’ll be just an useless XP hog on your team.

It’s actually quite similar to the job of the support. You must make sure that the enemy team doesn’t kill your carries. Roughly put, the support’s job is that the enemy team can’t kill the carries, while the tank’s job is that they won’t.


It’s not news in any sense, but I managed to get out of bronze (again) a few weeks back. I ended up there in season 4 – I don’t know if I just screwed up my placements or I decayed down from silver not playing for half a year at all, but I had to work my way out again. It didn’t take as long as I feared it could (I have horrendous luck and always end up with terrible teams when I’m in series).

On a related note, I still had a few people on my friends list who (I guess) I added while I was fighting my way out of bronze in season 3. I’m well aware that I’m not a good player, but when I see people stuck in bronze 5 for years, that lack of any progress is amazing even in my eyes.

What gives

I spent the last week trying to eat in a way to help my insides recover. You don’t know just how unfunny it is to have diarrhea when some green liquid explodes out of you every 3-4 hours. Luckily it’s better now, and especially when I’m sitting on my chair all day doing nothing but playing League or KanColle it stabilizes even more.


I might be on pretty bad terms with League in general, but the Pentakill original album Riot released a while ago is a whole different thing.

Why League of Legends is evil

A week or so ago I started playing League again. I just wanted some entertainment more active than watching anime and less randomly frustrating than KanColle. Well…

Except League eats into sleeping time and it is way more frustrating than KC due to the utter idiocy of a huge portion of the people – and it’s just as luck/random dependent who I get teamed up with as are drops, compass decisions and critical hits in KC.

That addiction

I’m always in severe need for some entertainment. In the years before, that was fansubbing for me: translating was perfectly enough for me. Translating, being a part of the community, then later writing reviews even was great. But even then, I always had problems clearing my backlogs, since I simply couldn’t get myself to work on stuff unless I was doing it on the usual weekly scheduled timeslot.

Elo hell doesn’t exist?

Hell it does. I’ll define it in a way that denying its existence would mean that you’re totally clueless about playing League.

Birthday rant

I really don’t care if I lose. Well, maybe I do. Definitely not so much if it’s a good game. Define good game? Well matched, 5v5. Both teams have roughly the same kills and the difference in gold earned isn’t over 3 thousand.

The League system hates me

The people in #troll-base are probably getting bored of my constant complains about bronze by now. “If you can’t carry yourself out, then you don’t deserve to get out,” is my personal philosophy regarding the bottommost of tiers (and probably all the others as well). That’s a pure question of skill, however.
