Multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends has had quite a monstrous entry into the gaming arena. Launched back in October of 2009, the game has enlisted active users from over 145 countries and over 32 million players login each month — a number that now eclipses the monthly activity of World of Warcraft, and inches closer to XBox Live’s 40 million monthly subscribers.

First of all, they’re adding a new spectator mode to matches so new players can watch and learn as higher league players beat the hell out of each other. Expect to see youtube’s channels to be filled with more videos recorded from these spectators. A new champion will be coming in as well. This Stitch look-alike specializes in controlling the creatures of the deep, throwing fish at a target and forcing a shark to attack. Its funny to imagine since the majorityRead More
