    I'm thinking of picking it up soon, maybe we could do a BU Podcast/Vidcast on it?

    Love me some League. It's my most played Steam game.

    It's still quite fun. There are a lot more maps and skins. They've added a lot of variety.

    Very much enjoyed my first foray in to it over the weekend. It's been so long since I played a proper fast paced game that I'm a little slow to pick up the battle tracking and some of the controls, even with a controller!

    Easy to get into, difficult to master. I have 200+ hours of gameplay and I can still be garbage sometimes.

    Do you find it easier if you're focusing on the ball or not?

    Not. I feel like this game is all about positioning and predicting how the ball moves in play, not whether you hit the ball. I've noticed new people tend to chase the ball nonstop and like to hover under it. If I'm playing doubles with someone chasing the ball, I'll focus on defense. It's all about rotation and reading the field. They chase, you defend and vise versa.

    I have certainly noticed that in a few games. New people don't tend to play defense which gets very annoying when I end up stuck there waiting, and then missing the ball.

    It's one of these games that's been on my Steam wishlist for a very long time but I just haven't gotten around to playing it yet.
