A Meal in a Hurry

21st of July, 2017

Sale Overview: 07.21 – 07.24

“Now that smells good.” said the man under the Boss of the Plains sitting at the bar. The cook appeared and left a large pot with a fragrant steam coming off its top. The man leaned forward to better catch the smell. “You sure can’t get fine things like this out of town. You included, dear.” “Shut up and tell me when enough is enough tough boy.” “Fine, fine; both ways actually.” He received dish and, with spoon firmly in hand, proceeded to savour the soup. It was simply magnificent as his palette was telling him and his face was clearly showing. He was so enraptured by the fine cuisine that he didn’t hear the howling of the wind; no one did.

Bundling July Up

20th of July, 2017

Sale Overview: July 2017 Bundles

As the first month of the second half of the year leaves a quartet of bundles appears with the usual suspects included. As always bundles carry the same discount as any regular sale but also mix great skins with others less so. Sometimes the most expensive skins don’t live up to expectations and sometimes the cheapest end up rather simplistic. It’s possible that some bundle escapes from assembly imperfection but, do any of these do? Let’s take a look and find out.

Hunt for Darkness, Two Rabbits and a Fish

14th of July, 2017

Soulhunter Kayn Review

When you are young, the risk is worth the power. The thrill of the hunt, fighting fire with fire, spreading darkness upon the darker ones. Sooner or later, the toll will have to be paid. You’ve seen darkness in the face: will it change you or will you have the will to change it? Only time will tell.

Champions of 2016

6th of July, 2017

SKT T1 Season 6 Skins’ Review

SKT T1 skins for Season 6 leave behind the contemporary, modern interpretations used before for a different, fantasy style that fits the realms of League of Legends better. There’s a subtle Greek influence, notorious golden armour and a few touches of red. There’s also the insistent T1 logo regardless of suitability so some skins manage the reference better than others. Still, do the skins manage to realise new identities for the champions? Only one way to find out: let’s check on the skins.

Dawn and Dusk, Augmentation

20th of June, 2017

Dawnbringer Riven Review

Heaven opens, a beam of light shines on the ground and she arises. The land knows of no more shadows, everything is clear to the eye. There is a sense of purpose, guided, directed by her wise hand. She comes with the dawn and lights the way through another day.

Nightbringer Yasuo Review

The skies burn, in flames he falls and on charred ground he stands. There is no light to show the horrors of the world, but they are there waiting. There is fear and terror, like wildfire, runs through spines and tortures minds. He arrives with the night and lays the dark blanket of the night.

A New Experiment

7th of June, 2017

Chemtech Tryndamere Review

Just imagine the potential: a body not only mechanically enhanced but also improved, no, fuelled by chemicals. Think about the possibilities! We could be looking at a new dawn in human improvement. We could go beyond our limitations and reach into a future where anything is possible to us. We aren’t talking about superpowers here: we are talking about… Wait, what’s that sound? The lab, close the door. Sound the alarm, it’s trying to escape. Quick, this way. Come one, the door won’t hold on for much

Pulsefires and the Vase of Venom

26th of May, 2017

Pulsefire Caitlyn Review

Through time and portals the chase goes. There’s no pause, no escape, no obstacle to her pursuit. Her words still ring in the ears of the target: “You mess with time, you mess with me.” “Empty threats don’t frighten me.” A rifle blast was the answer: how about that for empty? It was the head that would be emptied soon if the legs didn’t move fast enough. If only but fleeing was never an option.

Sooner or later, a foot would step and be caught on a trap. A net would envelop the body and the rifle would rain death. Then, it would stop, seemingly showing an opening for a frantic escape. It was just a misconception to think that she wouldn’t finish her job. The rifle would simply be adjusting for a long range shoot that would end the task. Another always appeared but there was always time for a cup of tea while the portal opened. Perhaps also time for a simple question: “Now, which hat would suit me better in this new era?”

Pulsefire Ezreal Review Updated

A couple new animations, new grim and gritty textures and particles that have to be seen to be believed; not in the most positive of ways, sadly. Pulsefire Ezreal has been updated and all have been warned: things aren’t as they used to be for better or worse; the latter shouldn’t have been addressed at all but well…

Echo of Hunger & Machined

5th of May, 2017

Dark Star Orianna Review

A twirl and a hop, planets orbit, stars explode. She sets the pace, she moves the bodies. The music is unheard, the rhythm is exact. The universe is at her hands, she conduces among the stars. Nothing out of place, every beat on time. If a tune goes out of tone, her correction will be prompt.

Dark Star Kha’Zix Review

The air is leaving the lungs, it’s leaving the atmosphere. The maws widen, the claws hold greedily. It devours, it consumes. Once it was diverse life, now is part of its homogeneous self. Look around, there’re more to catch. Each a priced morsel, each a step in an untold plan.

Stellar Visitor and Just Business

28th of April, 2017

Cosmic Blade Master Yi Review

A part of space with speed and conscience? Madness, a foolish story coming from some imaginative kids. Do you try to tell me that some space-man has come here to slash us all? With what? From what you tell he doesn’t even have a sword. This sword, I found it somewhere, if he wants it he better come to get it I’m wait…

Conquering Victory, E-sports Skin and Hell on Earth

Rebellious Charm, Double IP, Icons, Bundles plus Scope and Trigger

21st of April, 2017

Rebel and Charmer Review

Xayah and Rakan Splash Art
Meet the Vastaya

Xayah, the Rebel never quits and what many see as a weakness she can easily show how open to interpretations it can be. Sometimes there’s a job that requires more than sharp feathers to finish and that’s where Xayah excels. If you find a trail of glowing feathers know that’s she’s nearby and she seldom is alone.

Rakan, the Charmer isn’t known as such for no reason. Magic, love and ecstasy combine to scare, hurt and frighten as easily as he can form an irresistible smile. When you need someone to focus attention Rakan can captivate multitudes. Whenever he does so chances are he’s simply setting the scene up for his other half to seal the deal.

Together they make a team like no other, one that can take to the stars and shine with their own light. From dusk to dawn they tirelessly chase each other. Like Moon and Sun they are apart yet never separated. Appreciate their light and know that it comes at no small sacrifice.

Double IP Weekend and Icons

Until the end of the 23rd of April get double IP from every battle. You can also get the Gift of Magic icon by gifting Xayah or Rakan with RP or IP. There’s also the Blazing Feathers icon which can be unlocked by playing two matches with Xayah along a Rakan on your team and viceversa. Both icons are available only until the 26th of April.

A Project to an End

18th of April, 2017

Dreadnova Darius Review

We are all equal in war: everyone just meat to be sliced. Some are especially adept and keen on butchering their way through the battlefield. It’s not sadism, it’s the life they have been designed to lead. They embrace it and become some of the most feared fighters. Anyone would be wise to stay away from their path, but well, they aren’t an exception either.

The Fight for Ascent & Wind on the Door

7th of April, 2017

God Fist Lee Sin Review

The first time, it was mastery over all forms of combat. The second time, it was dominance over all combatants. The third time, it was prevailing against all odds. The fourth time, it’ll be a battle that no earthly words can describe. The fifth time, it’s to ascend.

Toy Box Heroes and Between Flames

31st of March, 2017

Toy Box Skins’ Review

Toy Box Skins Splash Art
Play That Kills

Open the box of toys and save them from a fate worse than death: the drooling maw of the Pug. Have pity for these brave heroes, and the cow, they only aim to amuse you and will do stop at nothing to be by your side. Provided that a certain someone doesn’t disassemble them in bites and barks. The call to action is clear. Toys assemble!

Colossal Gargoyle, For Panda and Dragon plus Marching Bundles and Sales

24th of March, 2017

Galio, the Colossus Review

Galio, the Colossus Splash Art

Galio, the Colossus stoically watches over Demacian lands. As guardian he waits for the time when his titanic might will be needed. It’s said that he keeps the uncontainable power of mages from scarring his country; as it had in the past. However, without magic he has no means of fuelling his will. Such is the ironical fate of this extraordinary titan. In the direst of times, the Colossus will walk again and legends will be rekindled anew with more tales of Galio’s battles. For now, he stands dormant seeing decades go by. The most long-lived also tell of how magic affects his appearance. Perhaps we should go through the records and see the many faces of Galio’s past.

Brimstone & Iron / Top Shot

10th of March, 2017

Dragon Sorceress Zyra Review

Dragon Sorceress Zyra Splash Art

The lair is long and wide but there is no room: everywhere eggs lay dormant. They await the call of their Queen. The time for them to hatch and burn the land with their sulphuric breath. Can anything stand against an army of flames?

Dragon Slayer Xin Zhao Review

Dragon Slayer Xin Zhao Splash Art

They were gone; we thought they were extinct. They simply hid, they were only waiting. They are here now and not many of us remain. We won’t go down without a fight. They may breath fire but no heat can’t melt our heart’s will.

O Melhor Carnaval & A Brushstroke of Genius

24th of February, 2017

Festival Queen Anivia Review

Festival Queen Anivia Splash Art

A melhor samba do mundo! Bem-vindo Carnaval! The celebration has started: a celebration of life. It’s time to join Carnanivia and be part of the parade.

A Night in Scarlet & Helped as Much as He Could

10th of February, 2017

Blood Moon Diana Review

Blood Moon Diana Splash Art

The Moon shines with a dark hue tinting the night. Among us walks her avatar, echoing her will and tainting the land as red as the Moon. Her light reaches everywhere, there’s no escape; we are all lost under a killing moon.

Blood Moon Jhin Review

Blood Moon Jhin Splash Art

Have you seen the signs painted in red on the floor? It’s a welcome to the Blood Moon and that’s not mere ink. Better run, fast, you may not get far enough before you also become a masterpiece.

Blood Moon Talon Review

Blood Moon Talon Splash Art

Look up, stare at this blood-soaked Moon. It’s not the Moon you are seeing now and it’s not her blood that spreads around you. The blade has reached you and you become another sacrifice to the Blood Moon.

Blood Moon Twisted Fate Review

Blood Moon Twisted Fate Splash Art

There are many names for different hands but this night is not one for games. Gamblers know that tonight there’s more than usual at stake and that makes it all the more interesting. Just know that the Moon will send someone to collect; you will pay your debt.

Seeking Hearts & Head of the Snake

3rd of February, 2017

Heartseeker Quinn and Valor Review

Heartseeker Quinn and Valor Splash Art

From high above, the letter comes,
a heart from a dove, feelings probes.
A tresure trove, in red glows,
the swing of love, in cotton wings goes.

Heartseeker Lucian Review

Heartseeker Lucian Splash Art

Two seats and a table,
two drinks and you are able,
to light passion unswayable
that beyond life will burn stable.

A Horror from Zaun

30th of January, 2017

Warwick Visual Upgrade Review

Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun

Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun is a no longer a man or an animal. He’s something between a killer and a victim of his past seeking redemption. Voracious for the blood of criminals his mind reminds his that he wasn’t always more than a monster and the memories painful stab at the frail conscience that he regained after his transformation. No matter how much he kill, how much sinful blood he spreads, his tainted past can’t be changed. Perhaps there is some hope in future transformations, which may affect his mind more than his body. Depending on what lies at his core, some say that he can be seen as a different kind of wrath but always a beast. In all this legends and rumour there may be more to find out about Warwick’s past, present and future.

Lunar Revel & Freezing Waters

20th of January, 2017

Lunar Revel 2017 Skins’ Review

She is the Emperor’s enforcer, the fiercest hero of the Jade Kingdom. Her bloodlust in battle knows no equal and even draws admiration beyond the kingdom. It’s said that her jade gauntlets are a gift of eternal devotion from a demonic admirer.
He is the Emperor’s blade, the mightiest warrior of the Jade Kingdom. Neither armies nor mountains are a match for his jade sword. It’s said that he’s the only one with the power to lift the magical blade carved from a great cloud serpent.
He is the Emperor of the legendary Jade Kingdom. Some say his staff holds the heart of a forest spirit. Others that he can summon armies from the very soil he rules over. All agree that his power is no illusion and shouldn’t be defied.

World’s End & To Train the Best

13th of January, 2017

Dreadnova Gangplank Review

Dreadnova Gangplank Splash Art

“Look! An eclipse?” The Sun dimmed and only a weak red light extended on the sky. The people looked up with wonder and questions. Nothing had been announced so, what was going on? “Did the news say anything in the morning?” “Does anyone have any information about this?” It surely couldn’t be that one of the satellite bases had gone out of orbit. The government would’ve warned people to take shelter.

The barrage of explosive beams started after the brief mark of a skull was projected on the whole face of the planet. Only from space could anyone guess what it was but anyone would’ve known what it meant. That Sun is still orbited by the remains of a lost world. Someone is supposed to be grinning but for most this is a crime that cannot be forgiven.
