1. Zilean Is Named After the Game’s Design Director
Zilean, the great Chronokeeper, is named after Tom "Zileas" Cadwell, a design director at Riot Games. Cadwell’s got an impressive pedigree, with a computer science degree from MIT, and credits at Blizzard on Warcraft III The Frozen Throne and WoW.
2. The Game References a 14th-Century Italian Knight
The famous Italian fencing master Fiore dei Liberi had a large influence on martial arts, due mainly to his illuminated manuscripts which have survived for over 600 years. In League of Legends, the character Fiora uses fencing as her fighting style and she has a very similar name.
3. Tristana’s Buster Shot is an Homage to Mega Man
There’s another blue action hero with a buster shot you might have heard of before. The resemblance is uncanny.
4. Hang Out After You Win the Howling Abyss for a Fun Bonus
After you win the Howling Abyss, be patient for about half a minute and the Ice Witch Lissandra will give some cool narration in her frosty aristocratic accent. It was the best of times and the worst of times. It was the time of the three sisters…
5. Nidalee Highly Resembles Nävis From the French Graphic Novel "Wake"
While it hasn’t been officially confirmed by Riot, the bestial huntress Nidalee could be based on Nävis from the illustrated series Wake. Nävis is also a jungle dweller who just so happens to have a cougar-like companion.
6. Singed is the OG Champion
The mad chemist Singed has the distinction of being the early figurehead for Champions in the game. Along with Annie, Sion, and Sivir, he was one of the very first Champions designed.
7. League of Legends is the 2nd Highest Paying Competitive eSport
League of Legends is the 2nd most profitable game to play competitively in eSports history with nearly $20 million awarded in prize money since the game’s release. That’s more than the original Counter-Strike and StarCraft combined!
8. Aatrox Was Inspired by Lord of the Rings Characters
Mike Laygo, a senior animator on League of Legends, stated that Aatrox’s animations were inspired by Balrog and Sauron. Lago himself has previously worked on Lord of the Rings games.
9. You Can Make a Poro Grow a Black Moustache
Everyone loves the adorable Poros, and they’re even cuter with a giant black moustache. Simply feed it Poro-Snax while playing as Braum and the cute little critter will sprout some facial hair to match its burly benefactor.
10. Zyra, Cassiopeia, Fiora, Shyvan & Elise Share the Same Voice
These five characters are all performed by voice actress Karen Strassman. If she sounds familiar it’s because she’s also worked on iconic anime like Gurren Lagann, Samurai Champloo and Code Geass.
11. This is What 10,000 LoL Games Look Like at the Same Time
The web site Rift Walk has a cool feature that lets you map out player stats in League of Legends over time. The picture above is an aggregate of 100,000 players in 10,000 games.
12. HotshotGG Dropped Out of College to Play League of Legends
While it's typically advisable to stay in school, one of League of Legends' most iconic players, George "HotshotGG" Georgallidis, dropped out of college to pursue a professional career in League of Legends. Youth is a huge factor in rapid reflexes and reaction speed, so he struck while the iron was hot and it served him well.
13. Zac’s Squishes Were Designed With “Creative” Foley
According to renowned eSports commentator Leigh Smith, the sound effects for Zac’s squishes were “made from dog food and beans inside a condom slapped against a wall.” Hats off to Riot for their disgusting ingenuity.
14. Blitzcrank Runs a Dating Service in His Spare Time
If you read up on any of the in-game lore, you’ll find out in the Journal of Justice that the golden golem actually runs a chain of magic cafes where he offers “Fleshling Compatibility Services” through which champions can engage in “instantaneous mating.”
15. Olaf the Berserker is Also a Character From the Film Clerks
Silent Bob’s cousin in the indie film Clerks is a strange guy obsessed with heavy metal, whose vulgar song lyrics are unprintable here. His spirit lives on in League of Legends!
16. Heimerdinger Has Probably Read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
The revered inventor Heimerdinger’s definitely the bookish type. When he says “42... there's just something about that number,” he’s referencing Douglas Adams’ classic sci-fi novel. As you may know, the number 42 is the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything.
17. Use the Jaximus Skin to Catch a Touching Tribute
In honor of a Make-A-Wish patient who visited Riot Games, Jax will occasionally say, “Here’s to you, kid,” to honor his memory. Jax was his favorite character, and Riot used the Jaximus skin to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
18. Korean LoL Players Make Way More Money Than Americans
While American players can certainly hold their own in League of Legends, currently Korean players have won a collective total of over 5.5 million dollars from competitions. That’s more than 3 times as much money as Americans have won.
19. The BF Sword Is an Allusion to Doom’s BFG9000
The BF Sword in League of Legends is a fairly expensive basic item that does about 50 attack damage. Maybe it fetches a premium price because it’s got that “90s cool” attitude straight from Doom’s most over-the-top weapon.
20. Shaco is an Anagram of Chaos
This one kinda stares you right in the face until you notice it. The demon jester has inspired enough creepy cosplay to deliver thousands of nightmares, but he’s lighthearted enough to engage in wordplay too.
21. Jinx Dances Like Jake from Adventure Time
Youtube Gamer NeiLalwaysLeeT has produced a cool side by side comparison that shows these two definitely dance to the same drummer. As Jake always says, he’d “rather be dancin’ with some babes!”
22. Vi Used to Be a Roller Skater
Who would have thought that Vi was initially a derby doll? A senior animator for Riot Games said that in her original design Vi was actually named Ruby and enforced the law with the help of some roller skates.
23. Kassadin Might Be the Most Frequently Nerfed Champion
While Irelia gets all the notoriety for nerfing, Kassadin’s actually had his skill set swatted down more often. He recently had his cooldown time increased by 8 seconds. The poor guy can’t catch a break.
1. The Saw Cleaver
This is the best weapon to use as training wheels when you start your quest. It's pretty lightweight, so it allows you to run in and thrash on your enemies without tuckering out. You may graduate to better weapons as you continue, but when you're naked and afraid the saw cleaver will see you through.
2. Hunter Armor Set
You can purchase the Hunter armor early on, but you can also drop into the sewers before you face the first boss to snatch a set for free. It's got different stats than the Bath Messenger's Yharnam Hunter set too! Every bit helps when you start out so weak.
3. The Hunter Axe
The Hunter Axe is another early weapon, but you can hold onto it for a long time by fortifying it with blood stones and gems. It's got incredible reach, and enough devastating power to stun most enemies with a full charge. Once you learn to time its heavy swings, you become an unstoppable force.
4. Father Gascoigne's Armor Set
After wailing against an impenetrable boss for hours, nothing's more satisfying than wearing the clothes off his back. You can purchase them when your Insight hits 10 from the Insight Bath Messenger hidden in the Hunter's Dream.
5. The Repeating Pistol
This fella can be tough to manage since it sucks up your ammo at 2 bullets a shot. It's worth it to have in your arsenal though. For stunning giant targets, accept no substitute. You can purchase it after defeating the first boss.
6. Doll Armor Set
As you get deeper into Bloodborne you'll quickly realize armor doesn't carry the same weight it did in the Souls games (literally and figuratively). While you can mix and match sets to min/max stats for particular situations, you'll ultimately find the sets to be fairly balanced and mostly a matter of fashion. There's no shame in sporting the Doll set.
7. Ludwig's Holy Blade
You can buy Ludwig's Blade inside Hunter's Dream after you acquire the Radiant Sword Hunter Badge. If you've been around the block in the Souls games, then you'll feel right at home wielding this versatile death dealer.
8. Crowfeather Armor Set
In addition to looking ridiculously creepy and cool, the Crowfeather set has high blood defense, which could give you an edge against a fellow hunter in PvP. Fashionborne is the way to rock it.
9. The Tonitrus
If not the absolute best weapon in the game, the Tonitrus (aka the lightning mace) is at least the most fun to wield. When it's tricked it out, it deals some major bolt damage on enemies. Snatch it up outside Yahar'gul Chapel.
10. Bone Ash Armor Set
In addition to being menacing as hell, the Bone Ash set has some of the best overall physical defense stats in the game. It's very popular in PvP too, kinda the equivalent of everyone choosing Ken in Street Fighter. (Image via Six String)
11. The Cannon
You can score yourself a cannon in the Forbidden Woods, and you'll be so glad you did. It consumes a whopping 10 Blood Bullets per fire, but it's a great party trick to bust out on an unsuspecting invader, particularly when you spend all the stones and rocks necessary to upgrade it fully.
12. Graveguard Armor Set
If you're a Dark Souls veteran looking to replace your Crimson set, then you've found your match. If you want the cool hooded mask that goes along with it, continue where you found the set and look for the road with a fire and a whole lotta snakes.
13. The Threaded Cane
Many swear by the Threaded Cane, and while you may be tempted to call them crazy, it's got tremendous reach, and its whip form works great for crowd control. It's a bit harder to stagger enemies with, but in a skillful player's hands, you can witness the second coming of Simon Belmont.
14. Cainhurst Armor Set
Cainhurst is maxed out in physical defense stats, so it's tempting to keep it on once you acquire it. Keep in mind it's weak in elemental defense, so make sure to swap it if you face a boss that dishes out elemental damage.
15. The Blade of Mercy
After helping Eileen the Crow (or killing her if that's how you roll), you'll get the Crow Hunter Badge which allows you to purchase Blade of Mercy. It's a trick weapon, so when it's transformed you'll be duel-wielding daggers and taking out bosses like yesterday's garbage.
16. Choir Armor Set
This is the outfit you'll want to switch to when you're up against a magic blasting foe if you're maining the Cainhurst set. You'll be as clean as a church boy with the highest magic defense stats Bloodborne has to offer. (Image via QP Games)
17. The Stake Driver
The Stake Driver catches a lot of heat for its poor range, but it scales decently with strength and skill. If you get over your fear of fighting in close quarters and practice with charging a bit, you'll unlock its true potential.
18. The Wooden Shield
Just kidding. The shield was almost certainly included in the game as a joke, since Bloodborne's design pushes you to be fast and agressive. Although, as weak as the wooden shield is, you could use it to show off in a weaponless challenge run.
1. No campaign mode
Star Wars: Battlefront will be without one major gaming mode when it's released: a single player campaign. Bummer? Kinda, yeah. But if you like to play alone, there's an offline solo mode to hone your skills in.
2. Crafted missions
With a lack of campaign mode in Battlefront, the game will focus instead on crafted missions. These missions can be played alone, online co-op or a split screen.
3. Star Wars: Battlefront looks gorgeous
The trailer that dropped at the Star Wars Celebration in April used actual game footage in tease. The worlds of Endor and Hoth look as good as any next-gen game around.
4. No prequel era
Don't expect to see many call-backs to the prequel trilogy. It's obvious that the developers of Star Wars: Battlefront are keeping their focus on the original trilogy and the future of the franchise.
5. 40-player battles sound awesome
One of the improved gameplay features is huge battles that will involve up to 40 players. You'll feel like you're actually in the Star Wars universe!
6. Bon voyage, space battles
Space battles from Star Wars: Battlefront II are a thing of the past. Too bad, right? You'll be stuck to planet-based battles in this installment.
7. Playable "Heroes"
The upcoming installment of the next Star Wars game will let you play as a handful of "hero" characters. Darth Vader and Bobba Fett are some of the original trilogy players that can be unlocked.
8. Four planets confirmed
A handful of familiar worlds will be gracing the gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront. Endor, Hoth and Tattoine return from the original trilogy, while a new world Sullust will be introduced.
9. Equal opportunity Stroomtroopers
According to the game's developers, you're able to play as a male or female stormtrooper in the upcoming edition.
10. Fly high
TIE fighters, X-wings and the majestic beast that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, the Millennium Falcon, are all flyable crafts in Star Wars: Battlefront.
11. Hop on and destroy
Not only have the locations for the battles in Star Wars: Battlefront been revealed, so have the vehicles you can ascertain while battling. On Endor, gamers can hop on speed bikes and AT-ATs. On Hoth, try riding a snow speeder.
12. First AND third person mode
Gamers will have their druthers when it comes to which style of shooter they want to play as. You'll be able to switch freely between first and third person view.
13. Everyone's favorite droids will make an appearance
R2-D2 and C-3PO will continue to be a major influence in all of Star Wars, and that includes video games. The droids will reportedly have some kind of role in Battlefront.
14. Free DLC
Die-hard Star Wars fans can get their fix on a new planet by preordering Battlefront. If you do, you'll get the Battle of Jakku DLC a week earlier than the Dec. 8 release.
15. Release date confirmed
The anticipation for all-new Star Wars content is keeping us on the edge of our seats, but the wait is almost over. Battlefront will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on Nov. 19.
