The Summoner's Guidebook: My goals in League of Legends

Whenever I enter a League of Legends match, I have a few goals set in mind. Of course, winning is a goal, but that's not the only goal. My agenda tends to be a lot more long-term, relative to other LoL players. We've talked a lot about meta lately, and it tends to be a hot topic with Season 4's...

The Stream Team: Stacking friends in Dota 2

The Summoner's Guidebook: Support in League of Legends doesn't mean healing

The Summoner's Guidebook: The little stories League of Legends creates

Recently, one of you guys asked to see more personal stories showcasing my experiences in League of Legends. Normally I'm not as fond of doing that sort of thing unless there's a moral in the story somewhere. I like teaching, so that is what the Guidebook does a lot of. The column's name is the...

The Summoner's Guidebook: LoL melts special snowflakes

Never let it be said that I don't listen to feedback. Recently, one of you readers suggested that I write about following the metagame, and I thought, "Hey, why not?" This was largely spawned by the Penny Arcade comic suggesting that somehow, a player should pick the champion he wants without...
