Jayce, League of Legends 100th Champion
July 03, 2012 - Lunaki
So Riot has finally hit 100. It felt like the last 5 or so champs took forever to come out, it feels like it was half a year ago that I realized they were almost up to 100. Not that I'm complaining, I prefer quality over quantity. So then, let's take a look at this "special" 100th champion.
Guild Wars 2 Release Date Confirmed!
June 28, 2012 - Lunaki
It's (finally) been officially announced that GW2 will be launching on August 28, 2012. We've all been waiting for it, so make sure you're free for three days before that if you pre-purchased! I know I will be. :D
Guild Wars 2 Release Date Panic
June 18, 2012 - Lunaki
There seems to have been a couple "release dates" for Guild Wars 2 floating around lately.
Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event
June 12, 2012 - Lunaki
So I ended up pre-purchasing Guild Wars 2 this weekend, because my interest was piqued, and I couldn't not do it. Then I figured I'd share my findings with everyone else! The article is long, but if you're still on the fence about getting GW2, I definitely suggest taking a look!
Diablo III or Guild Wars II?
June 05, 2012 - Lunaki
When I heard about these two games, I was having a tough time deciding which one I wanted to get. I'm pretty poor at the moment, so I didn't think I'd be able to afford both. Since all my friends decided to get Diablo III, and Guild Wars II doesn't even have a release date yet, I figured I'd get D3 for now, and see how it goes.
Champion of the Week - Shen, the Eye of Twilight
May 11, 2012
Welcome back after our short hiatus! This week we have Shen, the somewhat recently OP solotop/jungler. Ever since Riot gave him a much-needed buff, he's been tearing through creeps, turrets, and champions alike! Someone has to stop this madness before it gets out of hand! Banning him is a good option. As is first picking him! A Shen on your team is much superior to a Shen on the other team. Usually.. Head on over to his Champion of the Week section to find out more about this flippin' ninja!
Thanks for the Support

Small but Successful First Round - Join us for Marathon 2: Electric Boogaloo
April 30, 2012 - Lunaki
Our first weekend of streaming went pretty well. We received $120 in donations for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, and had pretty consistent viewers. Not a whole lot of them though, which we hope to change for the next marathon! We didn't have our audio setup up to snuff, but we hope to have that fixed for next week. Come join us for fun, games, and fundraising goodness next weekend! We'll be starting Saturday, May 5 at 10am Central!
Join us for our Fundraising Stream Marathon!
April 28, 2012

Champion(s) of the Week - Malzahar, the Prophet of the Void, and Blitzcrank, the Great Steam Golem
April 20, 2012
While Blitzcrank's review has actually been up for a week - he was never formally announced! This week we also add Malzahar to the list, so be sure to check them both out! They make quite an unlikely pair. Also a reminder about the Live Streaming events coming up next week and the week after. We will be putting Champion of the Week on hold for these two weeks, but there will still be plenty of fun to be had! Please check out our stream and support our cause on the weekends of April 28-29 and May 5-6!
Champion of the Week - Morgana, the Fallen Angel
April 09, 2012
Happy Easter! Also, say hello to Morgana. She's not really a springy happy colourful Easter looking champion, but hey, she's an angel, so close enough. We apologize for the delay, but this week was a hectic one with family dinners and Easter-related extra long work shifts. All that aside, we'll be back on schedule this week when we review Blitzcrank! Also make sure to vote soon - this week's poll will only be up for four days! Check out our Champion of the Week section for all this and more~
Happy Birthday XSplain!
March 30, 2012 - Lunaki
As some may have noticed, this week's Champion hasn't been posted yet. Rest assured, you will get to learn all about Morgana soon enough. March 30th was XSplain's birthday, so let's all wish him a happy new year! Or something like that. Champion of the week will resume as usual starting next Friday - that means the poll for the next one will be open for an extra week! Make sure you get your vote in. :)
Since it's XSplain's birthday - let's all celebrate! He's gonna do a dance for everyone. Check it out!
Champion of the Week - Soraka, the Starchild
March 23, 2012
This week's champion review is a little late, we apologize for that. We had some internet issues on our end, but we got it up (almost) on time! It's alright though, Soraka can heal everything, including hurt feelings (I think...). Our first support champion, and also our first Ionian, head over to Soraka's Champion of the Week review to learn about the wonderful behooved unigoat! While you're there, take a moment to vote for next week's champion in our Champion of the Week poll!
Champion of the Week - Galio, the Sentinel's Sorrow
March 16, 2012
Another Demacian joins us this week, this time he's a big ol' Gargoyle. Galio is a beefy anti-mid who has definitely earned his place in the League. As this week's Champion of the Week, you can learn more about this awesome creature by heading over to his featured page! As always, make your opinion heard by voting for the next Champion!
New League Champion - Lulu the Fae Sorceress
March 14, 2012 - Lunaki
The upcoming champion of the League was announced via her art spotlight tonight - and I have to say I'm legitimately excited. I have a thing for yordles, I have posted topics asking for more female ones.. And by the sounds of it, she's going to be our new support! What does she have in store for us?
Battle of the Servers, Battle of the Smurfs
March 09, 2012 - Lunaki
A lot of us play on more than one region in League of Legends. The majority being on North America and Europe West. I recently decided to join Europe Nordic and East, and was welcomed by... Something different than what I expected, I guess.
Champion of the Week - Cassiopeia, the Serpent's Embrace
March 09, 2012
This week's Champion of the week is the snake-lady Cassiopeia! She's a hard-hitting, fast casting, squishy mage who'd love to make your acquaintance. Head on over to our Champ of the Week section to check her out. Galio is up next week, so Cass is the lone Noxian in a world of Demacians. Don't forget to vote in the poll to get your opinion in for who's up next!

Daniel Mortensen Is My son
Valve's Gabe "Gaben" Newell recently teased fans with this mysterious picture.
This comes on the heels of the rumours of a Steam console, nicknamed by fans the Gabensphere, or Gabecube, or Gabestation, or many other different favlours of Gabe.
What does it mean? It roughly translates to Daniel Mortensen Is My Son. Is it an anagram? Does he actually have a long lost son that he's making the world aware of?
Champion of the Week - Shyvana, the Half-Dragon
March 02, 2012
Our second champion of the week - as voted by you! Shyvana descends into our second Champion of the Week spot, so fly to her featured pages and check her out!

To raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, we will be doing two marathons, streaming all weekend! The first will be April 28-29th, then again on May 5-6th, 2012.

Ever since Shoddy Battle up and died at the launch of 5th Gen, I've lost my Pokemon obsession. I happened across this little gem. To be honest, I haven't had much of a chance to check it out, but it's interesting to see where it might go.

The Rise, Fall, and Rise of Notch
February 10, 2012 - XSplain
Notch has been a controversial figure in the video game world for awhile. He's been put in that same category as George Lucas; a man with great ideas, but horrible execution.
New Champions, Old Champions
February 10, 2012
The new champion of the League, Nautilus, is coming soon! His skill set and stats all label him a tanky jungler, which has been confirmed by Xypherous, Riot's Associate technical designer. How does this measure up to the current champion set, and what will his place be in the current meta? Only his release will tell, but here are some speculations of my own.
Fundraising time is incoming
February 07, 2012
The Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis is coming up this May. I mention this quite some time in advance so that everyone can start saving up for the inevitable donation they'll be making! :D In all seriousness though, myself some people (specifically team Dapper) will be doing a video game marathon (perhaps more than one, but I'll keep everyone posted) to raise money. Please tune in and help us support Cystic Fibrosis research in memory of my sister Chrissy, and for my other sister Lisa, and the millions of others who live with Cystic Fibrosis. The marathon days will most likely be sometime in April-May, before the walk, which is on the 27th of May.
If anyone has any games they'd like to see us play while we marathon, don't hesitate to let me know! We have an IRC channel now - #dapper on the Quakenet server. As of now, we're probably going to be streaming League of Legends and possibly Team Fortress 2. (anyone can join us for the latter as well!) I look forward to it!
