Cowsep is Having the Time of his Life on the Philippine Servers

The name Cowsep rings a bell to a lot of people in the League of Legends community. He is regarded as one of the original content creators on both Youtube and Twitch to come up with everything League of Legends. His real name is Joseph Osceola Hursey, born on March 16, 1990 in Ohio, USA. However, he is not like most American Twitch streamers, more so when it comes to League of Legends content. You see, Cowsep actually plays in the Korean server ever since he moved to South Korea in 2012. To millions of League of Legends fans, playing in South Korea is like you playing Hotline Miami on Homicide difficulty with dying only less than 5 times. It is the server in which big Korean star team play in such as KSV and the legendary SK Telecom.

And also, unlike other League of Legends players, he is more or less in the sub-niche in the game by playing only one champion. Who, you ask? The swordsman from a mystical land called Ionia, Master Yi. For years, Cowsep has been known as the best Master Yi player in League of Legends in whichever server, be it KR, CN or NA. Fans love him for his positive vibes with a hint of toxicity that does not overwhelm his channel. He is somewhat kind of in the middle, where you have BoxBox and Imaqtpie as the most pleasant League of Legends streamers whilst you got Trick2G and the loudmouthed Tyler1 on the other side.

Imaqtpie May Have Finally Unlocked the Secret to Ranking 1 in NA

Today on May 18, 2018, Michael “Imaqtpie” Santana has shown his enthusiasm for the next patch on League of Legends—a patch that will give AD Carries the buff they deserve after being such fragile targets to roaming Assassins as well as some perks for the Junglers.

If you look through the patch notes (https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-810-notes), Riot has declared several some good changes for the Junglers so they can pressure lanes early in the game with more experience gathered for champions to the point where they can gank and kill at Level 2.

The new item, Stormrazor, is being exploited by Imaqtpie himself, declaring that with that new item, he’s going to “take over NA,” but we know he’s just being sarcastic about it. It may not be the main ADC item but the perks are huge. Continue reading “Imaqtpie May Have Finally Unlocked the Secret to Ranking 1 in NA”

League of Legends MSI 2018 Day 1 Recap

Just like that, a day has passed by and it looks like the people’s predictions over on Twitter were right. The first day of the Mid-Season Invitationals was actually a very eye-opening act from thrilling team fights to a ridiculous team pick layout designed by Riot themselves that was so complicated to look at, it didn’t show up anymore after the first couple of games. Analysts, former pros as well as the r/leagueoflegends subreddit expect this year’s MSI to be the most exciting mid-season game yet compared to the past years.

Let’s go over the matches that happened on May 3:

This year’s MSI is filled with new contenders as well as some old rivalries. But before we get on with the big names such as SKT, TL or FNC, let’s hover over the fresh faces and the potential candidates of the first group bout. Continue reading “League of Legends MSI 2018 Day 1 Recap”

Frostpunk Trends in the Top Games Isle – Black Burke At Play

Ever heard of Frostpunk? No? Well if you’re into city-building and intrigued by dark stories as well as games that force you to do inhumane things, this is the game that is definitely for you. Frostpunk is set in a post-apocalyptic Victoria Era of the 1800s where the whole planet is consumed by winter. You are the leader of the very last city on Earth and you must do whatever it takes for your people as well as your own city to survive; and by “whatever it takes”, I do mean whatever, to the point where you have to do unspeakable things—people are getting cold and the dead start racking up.

Why not use the corpses as a source of fire for the furnace? Lack of workers to maintain the heat generator? Use the children to do forced labor. It’s either them or the city will crumble. It’s your call. But that call will either mean the death of a hundred to save thousands or become so selfless, that it will cause the destruction of the city.

NightBlue3 Returns With the Usual Clickbait Title

“NEW STORMRAZOR ITEM IS BROKEN|ASSASSINS ERA HAS ARRIVED|JUNGLE REWORK”

As much as these texts make you hear loud noises, this is the usual kind of title our man Rabia “Nightblue3” Yazbek always come up. In his latest tweet, he surprised everyone by showing his usual League of Legends content again—catchy title, PBE testing, and no facecam. Yes, he has come back to his incognito state once again after failing to be a consistent Fortnite streamer/YouTube content creator. But hey, the League community welcomes him back with open arms so at least he has something to come back to, whether or not he actually enjoys League or not. This was his tweet:

God of War Leading in Today’s Top Twitch Games

What a pleasant surprise we got here: Despite the ongoing DreamHack 2018 CSGO Tournament in Marseilles, France and the never-ending ratings-rivalry between Fortnite and League of Legends while PUBG is just there sitting in the distance along with Hearthstone, there is currently one game that has surpassed all the consistently high-viewership games at the moment: a game that is not a competitive multiplayer at all: God of War. No, not the 2005 PS2 game nor the sequels and prequels after it, but rather the highly-praised 2018 revamped action-adventure game that features everyone’s (or at least the PlayStation community’s) favorite anti-hero, Kratos… but this time, with his son, Atreus.

Shroud on Islands of Nyne: “It’s like PUBG but Hunger Games”

On the evening of April 10, 2018, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek hosted a 5+-hour live stream for the usual PUBG session. But instead of closing it out with Battlegrounds, he tried out another battle royale game that was in closed alpha which looks quite promising: it’s called “Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale.” Despite the ridiculous name, it actually seems to be quite an enjoyable BR game. Shroud liked it, so why not others? Continue reading “Shroud on Islands of Nyne: “It’s like PUBG but Hunger Games””

Imaqtpie Defeats Nightblue3 for “Best Jungler in the Game”

I never thought I would wake up to watch a stream from Nightblue3 playing League…again. Yes, I guess we can say that NB3 is officially back on playing League of Legends despite the last “comeback” last April 6, 2018, saying, “I’m just playing this again because Fortnite has been glitchy and it’s frustrating,” after the said explanation, guess who’s back jungling again kappa.
