Couple of years ago, my PS3 died and took with it my FFVII save with all the best gear, levels, multiple master summon materia, etc., all that was left was grinding out the sources to get all the stats up to max.

If anyone reviews it, it'll be Dan. Odds are no one will.

You're winner.

Hm, I'd totally play this on a console.

Don't want to be a pain, but requesting some name changes for League of Legends champions for the sake of consistency. Also, I'm hella OCD about this:

Rename Ahri, the Nine Tailed Fox to Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox (add a hyphen)
Rename Diana, Scorn of the Moon to Diana, the Scorn of the Moon (add "the")
Rename Elise, The Spider Queen to Elise, the Spider Queen (lower-case "the")
Rename Lulu, The Fae Sorceress to Lulu, the Fae Sorceress (lower-case "the")
Rename Master Yi the Wuju Bladesman to Master Yi, the Wuju Bladesman (add comma)
Rename Orianna, the Clockwork Girl to Orianna, the Lady of Clockwork
Rename Quinn to Quinn, Demacia's Wings
Rename Sion, the Undead Champion to Sion, the Undead Juggernaut
Rename Talon, The Blade's Shadow to Talon, the Blade's Shadow (lower-case "the")
Rename Tristana, the Megling Gunner to Tristana, the Yordle Gunner
Rename Trundle, the Cursed Troll to Trundle, the Troll King
Rename Udyr, the Animal Spirit to Udyr, the Spirit Walker
Rename Vi, The Piltover Enforcer to Vi, the Piltover Enforcer (lower-case "the")
Rename Viktor, The Machine Herald to Viktor, the Machine Herald (lower-case "the")
Rename Vladimir, The Crimson Reaper to Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper (lower-case "the")
Rename Volibear, The Thunder's Roar to Volibear, the Thunder's Roar (lower-case "the")
Rename Gnar to Gnar, the Missing Link

Since there's life on this board, I thought I'd chime in. To make one thing clear, it is not my intention of adding high-level game knowledge to the wiki. In fact, earlier today, I decided to re-write a lot of the Summoner spell information because it had a lot of complicted scaling math in it and I'm not even convinced there needs to be a list of all the spells to begin with. But hey, it was already there, so I didn't want to delete it.

My main issue with the current structure is that right now, we have a category "Fields of Justice" (i.e. the maps), with the single sub-category of "jungle creeps" and then we get separate categories for the game modes "Dominion", "ARAM" (I think I added that one at some point or expanded on it), as well as an "Events" category for the various themed events they did (if you haven't played LoL, these were often just times where a lot of Xmas or Halloween skins were released.) In my opinion, this tree diagram is pretty ugly, having multiple roots and only one of them having a single branch.

So, right now, the structure is:
Maps -> Jungle creatures
Dominion -> Nothing
ARAM -> Nothing
Events -> Nothing

Note that right now, the wiki has a description for Dominion and ARAM mode, but doesn't really explain how the "classic" MOBA mode works. It's like describing Quake 3's CTF and TDM mode without mentioning regular deathmatch.

The way I would restructure it is the following:

Game Modes -> Classic, Dominion, ARAM, Limited Events.

This would give one root with 4 branches for the same information. The description of the map would be within its respective game mode (i.e. Summoner's Rift for classic, Crystal Scar for Dominion, etc); specifics about jungle monsters should probably be reduced (do we need a list of all the monsters?); Events would likely ignore these seasonal events, instead mentioning the temporal "mutators" Riot ran, such as Ultra Rapid Fire, Legend of the Poro King or Ascension (again, if you don't play League, these modes were available for 2-3 weeks before being removed from the game again.)

One thing I'd like to add is to maybe not tell the players what numbers they need to roll to hit a guy, make a saving throw, etc., or at least ask them beforehand, how they want to do it.

I used to watch a lot of RollPlay on Twitch and one of the things I appreciated as a viewer was their DM just going "roll a d20" and then adding some flavor like "your weapon clanks off the iron shoulder pad" if they barely miss on a hit roll, or "the sun blinds you momentarily and he manages to jump out of the way" if they completely miss the roll.

Greetings, fellow duders and summoners!

In the more recent days, I took a closer look at the League wiki page, adding some of the latest champions released and going over outdated information. Frankly speaking, parts of it seem like a mess. Of course, with a game like League, that is constantly updated and expanded upon, information can eventually become obsolete, but the modes section is particularly messy in my opinion. Hovering on the overview, there is a "Fields of Justice" section talking about the maps and then we have separate sections for Dominion, ARAM and Events (Payment should come after all the gameplay stuff IMO.)

My suggestion is to instead have a "Game modes" category on top with "Classic", "Dominion", "ARAM" as well as a "Temporary Modes" sub-category for things like U.R.F., Acension or the upcoming Nemesis Draft. What say you, fellow summoners and / or mods, am I alone in my assessments or does the wiki need some reconstruction work done? I'll check back in a couple of days as I know we LoL players probably don't check these forums often for any LoL-related news.

PS: I'm also thinking about re-writing a lot of the competitive section as it hasn't been updated since season 3 and there probably needs more emphasis on the LCS structure such as payment, rules, fines, etc.

As a support main, it is my duty to buy this skin. Also, it's confirmed to be 1950 RP for a few days after release, so it's quite the deal as far as skins go. It'll be tough to leave Silent Night Sona behind, though.

This is never gonna work the way it's shown in this video.

Also, what's the point of this Xbox One streaming? I thought we were pushing to get PC games to play on TVs, not the other way around.

The run was great and all, but I couldn't get over the guy saying light speed was roughly 3x10^7 instead of 3x10^8.
