Giant Bomb chat channel.

#1 Edited by Vision (796 posts) -


Hello everyone, if you're looking to play with fellow bombers, we have a chat channel for just that.

Click on the chat button in the bottom right corner of the client.

A new window will pop up and in the bottom of that is a create/join button.
Once you've opened that up type "Giant Bomb" without quotes and enjoy.

If you wanna join on start-up click the gear in the top right corner and mark "Autojoin on Startup"

#4 Posted by Vision (796 posts) -

It means that you were the first on(you created it).

What people basically need to do is set it to auto-join (i know some have).

I now have it set to auto-join. I've been playing a bit more recently due to school being almost done. Look forward to playing with yall :)

I forgot to set it to auto-join. Doing it right now.

I'm scared about showing you all how much I suck.

I've been looking into this game and this only encourages me to get on it, but compiling wine yet again so that it works with league of legends is a process I don't look forward to... I'll probably do it eventually though, so see you there :)

@nintendoeats:  Don't be, we're generally pretty chill about skill level. :)

Everyone has to start somewhere.

Yeah, well I'm level 18 and I'm still pretty garbage. Admittedly I'm maining Blitz who is really only good when your team knows what to do with him. Grab n' stab.

I'm trying out more DPS-ey builds so that I'm not so reliant on tam members for not suckage. But I'm pretty sure that I'm generally not great at the game.

Whatever, punchin' fools.

The general build for Blitz is: Manamune, Trinity Force, then build tanky or go for some more DPS.

Bloodthirster, Brutalizer and Infinity Edge is decent on him for extra DPS.

Banshee's Veil and Randuin's Omen is good for defensive depending on the enemy team comp.

Kind of an older build and probably doesn't run the Heart of Gold's anymore since they kind of suck now. But Doublelift is a 2300 Elo rated player and the best Blitz player in the world. He is for sure the go to source for how to play Blitz. He also says frequently (he's a frequent poster on the LoL sub-reddit) that if you can't land your grabs like 90% of the time, you probably shouldn't play Blitz.

I just got this game today after listening to the tricording podcast talk about it so much...
It is awesome and I am undoubtedly terrible, kind of scared to jump into a game that isnt against bots.  Already had a teammate talk about how terrible i was when we were easily destroying the bots (Who does that?)
Maybe with some giantbombers who don't mind if im a bit bad i'll try the PvP tomorrow :]

 I just had the "just one more game" syndrome for about 5 games in a row...

I can play a couple of Coop games with you, so you can get the hang of it. :)
