2/141 Brand new curse

brand

You might have noticed a lack of post activity for over one month already. It’s mainly do to me being busy with life stuff and on a more grand scale – My lazy nature yet again.

I’ve been thinking for a while now regarding my attempt at getting maximum mastery score on League of Legends – A challenge that I attempted a few years ago, back on my older account, which I gave away due to me not being good at predicting how long I would have been upset with the game.

I really wish to make this dream come true. How the hell am I going to do this when Mordekaiser to me seems like an impossible champion to get good grades on?

This is what I want to find out. I want to explore the huge roaster of all these freaks of nature. All the good and all the “bad” champions. Eventually, I’ll continue with my Fiddlesticks conquest or maybe I’ll find and pick something that suits me more. Who knows?

I have Fiddlesticks to maximum mastery level already. The next champion that I did was Brand. The experience was pretty awful, mainly because I had over 20 bad games, 1/9 of which where my fault, no less. [Champion is cursed, I tell you!] God forbid you ever get to play against Leona/ Caitlyn! – Once you get CC’d, you just can’t move away from the spot, at least not until you are dead, that’s it!

Brand new brand

I used to play Brand mainly with squirrel pet, but the whole sorcery tree got nerfed, so I switched a few things around. [One thing only…] In my last games, I played Brand with Comet, weaker scorch and “I can’t tell the difference” celerity. I don’t think you want the river mobility rune. Really, Brand shines at bullying laners, rather than roaming. I am playing him support. You can get fed twice as fast really and your ult is way more effective with more enemy champions around. Given that you also invest in future market and free clock of many plays, you can get ahead really fast and obliterate everything. I am not the best at skillshots and I tend to play champions that are point and click, but honestly, with Brand, you just go into team fight and you throw your ultimate without really looking. Good job! You just won!

I love watching people explode!!!

Fiddletricks

Hello! Hi! I’m glad that I have internet connection yet again. This week was pure hell, honestly. But here I am with some Fiddletricks and facts that might just get you to a Gold rank in League of Legends. I played my promos and end up 8W 2L, Gold IV. I am a Goldenstick now! Do I wanna try for Platinum? Maybe. Anyways…

If you issue a dance command, Fiddlesticks will freeze in place while doing his jump move, at some point. Apart from impressing everyone for five seconds, this is as useful as laning along with a Vayne ADC.

Despite being “point and click”, your Fear spell can be dodged if the target gets out of range, just as your start your casting animation. Sound will still occur, but the target will be unaffected. [Please, fix this!]

Using the Fear spell on a Master Yi who uses his ultimate might be a bit tricky. Depending on how much fed and power- farmed he is, you either wish to fear him away from your team or position in a way where you can push him into a wall. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, using Fear on Master Yi when he uses his ultimate makes him run away really fast in a direction, opposite to your position. If Yi hits a wall, he will either try to go around it or will bump and be stuck at it. Most commonly, the second scenario occurs. YOU CAN USE THIS KNOWLEDGE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE IF THE BASTARD IS IN YOUR BASE, NEAR THE FOUNTAIN SPAWN POINT! JUST FEAR HIM INTO THE LASER TURRET THERE AND MELT HIS ASS!

Buy Knight’s Vow or Abyssal Mask to deal with fed opponents. These tank items will give you good survival chances, mainly against assassins. Always ban Talon!

The true range of your ultimate is also determined by the range of your Flash summoner spell and not a lot of people are aware of that.

When using sweeping lenses to clear wards, be aware that you won’t be revealed until you start hitting the target ward. Use this as an advantage to pull off some sneaky crow storms.

That’s all I have to say for now! That’s all you get for no money and no new Fiddlesticks shard to get me that sweet mastery level seven!

Now go feed the bot lane with no style whatsoever!

Feedworld: Fiddlesticks Odyssey

On the dating simulator game called “A support in League of Legends”, when picking the character Fiddlesticks, you already start with negative 100 points. For each good ultimate execution, add plus 1 points. Add half a point for a good crow bounce. Romantic paths are pretty much impossible and just getting to the zero point score is a chore big enough, but it will save you from being reported by your team and getting a two week unpaid trip to Hawaii.

But watch out for actions that will add additional negative points! Like using “E” on the minion wave, getting caught early by a crowd control effects or not building a “Redemption” for your team as fast as possible! If you can’t save your ADC from a Blitzcrank who pulls them under the enemy turret, they’ll run it down mid for sure! That’s pretty much an instant Game Over! If you leave the bot lane to roam, they will open a grand buffet all- you – can -eat before you manage to even get to the mid lane! Free food usually tastes awful, honestly!

I am still waiting for a Fiddlesticks champion shard…

Rune2

I was pretty skeptical about Aftershock, but it turned out to be pretty good. If anything, not a lot of people expect you to suddenly turn into the toughest nut to crack in the universe. You still do a pretty good damage and can poke down the enemy bot lane early, even without the magical squirrel. Stopwatch is a really good rune, which I feel is a must, as it could really give you the opportunity to turn around many sticky situations.

Rune1

This is the “Fun Build” Fiddlesticks. You do it when you play with friends or when on a huge lose streak. That way you can add more defeats to your match history and brag about it on the internet at some stupid internet forum. Spend ten minutes saving gold for Twin Shadows and then enjoy your two seconds of fun when you cast it and spray the enemy with icy lasers. Even when you lower the item’s cooldown with runes and add to its efficiency with the Glacial Augment, it still feels pretty useless, IN MOST SITUATIONS! Maybe it could have been good if the ghosts left a speed buff trail or something. I don’t know.

Rune3

This is the best Fiddlesticks rune page setup. You get cheaper items, free clock, free RG item, free ward, true damage and lower item CDR. You can chase people down and fear them, you can dive under enemy turrets with an early hourglass and not get a follow up by your team. It’s a rune page that provides you with lots of utility. Not having the Resolve tree does sucks, but I think that at the cost of some tank stats., being able to utilize items to catch people and scale faster pays off much better.

Ghost poro is good. You can use to to scout for early bot side crab enthusiasts and to prevent enemy ganks. Given how much time it takes for the warding items to be completed and how limited trinkets are, this is much better than the short living Zombie wards or the free 30 AP eyeball collection that… I mean, come on! 30 AP? And you need to stack it! No…

Come play with me on EUNE, “LR19 FlareEX”!!!

The Weekly Fields of Spookiness

When I started playing League of Legends, I remember that my first ever champion that I picked was Nautilus. I did fairly well with him in the game, despite not knowing how and what should I be actually doing overall. Then, in the next game I picked Fiddlesticks, as he looked like an interesting champion. I am also a sucker for crowd control abilities, ever since DOTA back in Warcraft III. However, I did not know that certain champions require ability power to work, so I end up thinking that Fiddlesticks is the worst champion ever…

Then came a time when lots of mobile assassins came out and they started being a problem on a mode that I really enjoyed – Dominion! I saw then from a Fiddlesticks player that you can ambush other players, regardless of how much they are ahead or good at the game and obliterate them with a perfectly timed ult. Truly, this scarecrow can be an ideal assassin, as long as you are on the right place at the right time.

Then, people started playing him support, mainly because Corki was really good ADC on bot lane, at the time. I was curious and tried him a few times, but another champion had my attention back then, that being Lulu. I just liked double killing the enemy bot lane constantly, since Lulu was pretty strong early on. That’s it really. My whole experience as a support main player revolves around the idea of just running around the map and murdering people. My warding system changed from one that could prevent me and my ADC from ganks to one where I would actively ward the enemy jungle and seek opportunities to go and murder people who casually walk through it carefree, thinking that they are in their safety bubble.

A fresh start is always a good thing. Perhaps I’ve been too harsh in the past on the game, but if anything, I would blame life itself that has been harsh on me. After spending almost 7 years on this game, I feel like I should do something with it. Like get a high mastery score or something. I’m not sure yet, but I’ll do my best! No more bad attitude, no more complains about Master Yi doing over 1000 true damage with few auto atatcks! I will still be upset about Renekton being the destroyer of fun in the top lane. I’m sad that Banner will be removed for a time being. I had a fun week where I sent promoted minion as a Fiddlesticks support to a Singed lane. The minion actually killed Singed as he was fighting my Maokai ally. I’ve never seen something like that before. I feel like that Singed has been gutted quite a lot and he struggles enough against lots of champions, especially those who have range or are of crocodile origin.

What you are going to hear from people who are to lane alongside with Fiddlesticks support is – Don’t use E in lane.No! Use E in lane! Having pressure on the enemy duo bot and them being low on HP could usually turn ganks from the enemy jungler into spicy triple kill for your ADC or… you. Either way, Fiddlesticks scales pretty good, not really as much with AP as with utility items and a bit of magic penetration. A free clock is good because you can dive any turret after the 8 minute mark. Future market is the best rune in the game. Who the hell needs sugary treats or minion acid flasks, when every item in the game will be as cheap as 100 to 250 gold less. I don’t know. Usually, on my first back, I get upgraded support item and a boot. I can’t afford the boot in this case without the rune.

Hell, I don’t know if I’ll be able to afford dinner tonight…

Thank for reading!

OneShot – But not really!

oneshot

This game was requested many times by “camelpuncher”, a person who gets shot at least once a day, because that’s what living in a capital city is all about!

“I wish I could make a beautiful, unique and involving puzzle game on RPGMaker” – The spider in the corner of my room.

When I was first introduced to “OneShot”, I had weird expectations about the game. With its concept of having only one chance, one gameplay session, I thought it would try to be mean and send me over to the abyss of canned tuna, if I screw up at some point in the game. However, it turned out that the game is pretty generous about it, a bit too much for its own good perhaps. Getting the bad ending depends literally on you choosing to quit at any point, before you get to the end. Apart from that, the game also makes auto- saves and forces you to take brakes every now and then. It’s a one- shot type of deal where you can really take your time, but not really! Considering how short “OneShot” is, the player is unlikely to be in real need of a break between every ten to twenty minutes of a gameplay session. Given that we live in the era of busy machines, office parties and where everyone has some mental disorder, the job edition, there could always be a case of someone making use of those breaks – A true hardcore gamer who plays only for a bit each day, while investing the rest of their time into “actual” work. The word [actual] here can be understood in more ways than one!

In my opinion, if one is to make a short game, a good idea would be to work on making the game leave a strong impression on the player or having a decent replay value. With the way and idea this game was made, both of these are pretty much nonexistent. The game restricts itself for the sake of appearing unique, without the need to really do so. I notice the lack of commitment and dedication from the plot and the main character. So here we are, this is Niko, a cat person, but not really! Just because someone has the features of a cat creature, that does not necessary makes them related. You get to save a world by bringing a big light bulb to a place, but not really! The world is already dying due to other reasons and your quest won’t fix that – As acknowledge by the game itself via the words of a certain NPC. Now why is that? Did this game really need to try and appeal deep and whatnot itshowuwantittobe crap?  Maybe it was all experimental – After all, there is also a remastered version of the game on Steam, which supposedly covers most of the problems presented within’ the original release. Supposedly.

OneShot 1.1 DONE!

The art in the game is pretty great. Same goes for the music. They manage to create a pretty unique atmosphere, that fits well with the few location that you get to explore in the game. The character design is decent, but you usually meet characters once and off you go then. You are, after all, on a quest to save the world, but not really, as we just discussed. The puzzles are alright, but they are not all that difficult, mainly due to the fact that “there so much you can do” syndrome is presented. Watch out though! The game will break the fourth Chinese vase and try to make YOU part of the game, while installing many copies of “Earthworm Jim: The simulator” on your computer PC machine, without your permission! Your hidden bitcoin stashes might also be in danger!

4.7 out of 10!
