How not to play League of Legends – Part 4 – Soraka

As someone who can’t aim on moving targets that well, especially a vast number of moving targets, a nice wide attack seems a great plan for a n00b like me. Well after a game playing Ashe (for a 3rd time) and having enough points, Purpose suggested playing Soraka.

As a healing character, who can be a great support, it would be a great way to ease into the game.

First time after buying her though, having not be told by Purpose to be passive instead of jumping right in and wondering why my attacking power was so low, I sucked.

Yes you can play her as an agressive character, but you have to build her that way by starting with Q and choosing other items to build her that way. My first game was full of stress, putting me off the role of support (though at a very low ranking futile I know but you have to learn somewhere). After my second and third game, finally knowing to be passive, I really got into the character! Being able to learn to hover around character, healing them and quickly running away then back again.

Getting basic boots then better boots really did make a difference! Being able to run fast is a good thing! Bushes and running are your friend in this role.

So how do you not play Soraka? Well like me, getting killed, hitting the minions with the heal or silences rather than the characters, and button bashing!

Yes I am a button basher when it comes to games like Tekken and Super Smash Bros Brawl! Do not button bash with this game! It just wastes your good powers at the wrong times. Don’t mix up your numbers and letters… as I kept doing. You might then wonder why its doin g nothing!

Keep your hand still as a noob and only move it if you know you are going to go straight back to the correct part of the keyboard.

I really do like Soraka, and will unfortunately be annoying people with my terrible playing! Sorry 😦


How not to play League of Legends – Part 3 – Morgana

Having watched many a game of League of Legends, I have come across Morgana a number of times with her big black pool of evil. She is such a fierce character, it is quite scary as a newbie playing her.

As the third champion I played, it was so scary and difficult, but my confusion between the left and right button was my main downfall here. The whole game was a blur of panic!

She is a great and powerful character, when played correctly; shame I can’t. So much a blur, I can’t even remember what button did what for her!

So how not to play her? Like me running around and right under towers or into towers, or not paying attention to bushes where it seemed the enemy constantly jump out of! Also be warned that once experienced gamers know your a n00b, run! They just know to pick on you to get kills or “fed” as they call it.

Remember to be good and “gg” or “good game” at the end, and don’t whine or swear; you’ll get reported so be nice!


How not to play League of Legends – Part 2 – Ashe

With Ashe on the current rotation of free champions, and under the advice of Ex-pro gamer and Boyfriend extrodinair, Purpose Gaming, I played Ashe.

Her lovely wide range arrow spray makes it nice for someone who can’t manage to hit people quickly or directly. So getting 1/6/10 made me proud, yet I was quickly told how bad for an Ashe that is! It makes sens with her attack being so powerful, espeially something called an “alt” (or hitting the R button finally near the end)

So Q made people go slower (apparently), W was the button I was constantly using as it was the wide burst, E I hardly touched and R is a big arrow you have to actually mange to aim to not waste.

So what was my issue? Getting used to guiding the screen with my mouse (and increasing the sensitivity of my mouse helped) and the difference between left and right click.

I am still getting used to moving left, hold a letter and click right.

I don’t what they say; women are not automatically great at multitasking! I am terrible! Yet Purpose, as an ex progamer is amazing.

So while Ashe is great, she seems to be a pick everyone is after, so get in quick there with choosing her and as a n00b, enjoy the fun of her wide range.

Moving today!

So today I pack and I have the final yet most important thing to pack left… my computer!

So here goes!

But it does make us wonder, how much life and priorities have changed in the last 10 years that our phones and computers are now sop important to us!
