We’ve decided to change the format of the front page to allow a section where news related to StrategyZero and League of Legends can be published. Twitter has been the platform used so far but its performance, or effectiveness, has been less than stellar. It’s true that we don’t tweet as much as we should but we are unsure about what kind of news or information, besides reviews, would really interest you. On the plus side, we can say that we’ve been busy re-designing the website to provide you with a better experience. So, we have a good excuse; as could be expected.
Actually, the website has seen quite a bit of tinkering on the unseen side. Pages are now lighter and load faster and the website should be more resistant to attacks; knock on wood, let’s hope nobody gets any ideas. Still, your guidance is paramount to helps us focus on content that you enjoy so if you like a champion to be reviewed or an article on a specific topic, please tell us. We may take our time but no suggestion is ignored or discarded without thorough analysis; just like any skin.
We sincerely hope you like the new design and please don’t hesitate to comment your ideas and thoughts on the whole of StrategyZero.
Readers can now leave comments in all posts on StrategyZero. We look forward to read what you have to say and hope to get in touch with our little but growing community of League of Legends fans.
We would particularly be interested in your opinion of the website, what you like and dislike about it and what you think we should add or remove to improve it. From new article topics to the blog’s design, all opinions are welcome.
StrategyZero’s first post was published on July the 13th. Since then much has happened: the site was redesigned from its basic layout, article series were incorporated and we’ve associated with great websites like The LoL Fansite and Dominate Dominion.
2011 is coming to an end and we’d like to take a moment to reflect on all that you, our readers, have helped to shape. Your input and interest is what has made StrategyZero what it is today, so let’s take look at what we’ve covered.
WebGL (Web-based Graphics Library) is software library that allows for 3D graphics to be displayed in a browser. The library allows supported browsers to render polygon based models in real time. It was created by the Mozilla Foundation and has opened a new realm of possibilities for web graphics.
In terms of League of Legends skin viewers it means that champion models can be rendered in real time and inspected from any angle. The images below link to a couple of skin viewers that make use of WebGL to show skins with the highest detail possible.
Season 2 is finally here and it’s brought a nice host of features with it: new masteries, new summoner spells, more rune pages, Spectator Mode, ranked teams and a prize pool of $5 million. As if that wasn’t enough the League of Legends website has been revamped with a new and cleaner style plus a Competitive section to keep track of circuits, events and ladders.

Gamebase covers many games on different platforms: Diablo III, Maple Story, Angrybirds. League of Legends is no exception and besides the mandatory news and pro videos they have a great skin viewer that shows the models of each champion, and each skin, as they would appear in-game.
The viewer constantly spins the model around the vertical axis but you can click on the Flash window and rotate it as you see fit to check every little detail. You can even zoom in and out by using the mousewheel. Each champion’s lore, abilities, spotlight video, wallpapers and more are available albeit in Chinese.
