There's a lot going on this week in multiplayer gaming so it's time we had a chat!By Michael Byrne - 2 days ago
I had a hard time thinking of a good answer for the question of the week, because there are just so many terrible names in the mobile gaming space. There's definitely something worse out there, but one that makes me facepalm every time I see it is Game of War. It's just so generic, almost to the point of being offensive. I also think pretty much any recent non-WoW game that starts with 'World of...' deserves a dishonorable mention.
As for LoL's ban...i'm with zack in saying it was justified, just having someone so obtuse in a team based game is damaging not only to the players but the game as a whole(because if it is unpunished people quit), people do the same in WoW when it comes to raiding, if people fail to be a team player they get kicked from the raid or their raid guild (there is no I in team) he could also be padding his stats when it comes to win rate...he might actually be a really good player with a high win rate and when he switches play style it drops to an average before he pads his stats again.
As for the question of the week, i really can't think of a game with a name that i would consider bad
I play a lot of League. I gotta say that this ban is honestly not vibing with me very well. I understand where the support staff is coming from, but we are talking about a game that if they dont get exactly their way, they will hold the game hostage.
I am not talking about the nunu player, I am talking about the players who dont want to play with the Nunu not taking no for an answer. Every time I try something a bit off meta, I get constantly flamed. If it works, they are silent, if it doesnt, they freak out at me the whole game trying to get the other team to report me through all chat.
I can really understand that this Nunu player just kind of adopted the "I dont negotiate with terrorists" mentality.
That being said, I have heard a bit about this story and this nunu player would be counterjungling the enemy Jungler's lower buff while playing support, so I could understand that the ADC who he was supporting would be frustrated. ADCs are a role that cant do anything solo until they start to get items. If you are constantly in a 1v2 because your support is off doing counter jungling, you are at a huge disadvantage.
Although I dont agree with this Nunu's method, if it gets results, you might see it in LCS. Then all of a sudden it becomes meta and nobody has a problem with it. Keep in mind the meta hasnt always been set in stone for league, so trying out new things shouldnt get banned. Even if the player decides not to interact with the toxic community in the process.
Speaking of Aeria Games I was permanently banned from their games. The reason is stupid. I was on a quest that required me to buy something from the cash shop. I bought the item and completed the quest. All was well right? No because I received an email saying the reason was billing. So yeah A-bomb to those bastards.
