Sorry it’s been a while guys – I have changed up my posting schedule in order to adjust for our streaming schedule. So new posts will now be up every Thursday!
Launching our stream has been such a great experience and I’m so grateful for anyone who has taken time out of their day to watch us. I really want our stream to be a positive community and so far everyone has been so pleasant and supportive of one another. Be proud of yourselves for being a part of that! If you missed it, there is a highlight video up on youtube now. But we stream 3 times a week and we tried to add in a variety of times to work with different time zones – you can check out that schedule right here.
Aside from that, the highlights of my week were buying Aurelion Sol (yes, I know) and getting to try out Bard again! I feel like every time I play him, he grows on me even more. At first I just liked him for his hilarious sounds, and then I liked him for his hilarious sounds AND his whole chime-collecting thing. I still love both of those things, but this was the first time I really enjoyed using his actual abilities. I think I’ll be buying him next with IP.
I won’t talk too much about A Sol because there will be a lesson video on him up next week, but TL;DR: he’s hard, I know, I don’t care. He’s a motherfucking space dragon.
I also tried out Corki for the first time. He’s…really weird? Like I don’t know how I never noticed how weird he is before. Everytime ‘the package’ came up, I was like….the package??? 😏😏😏 But besides that, he was pretty fun. His package-empowered W goes FAR.
I tried Rumble again for the first time in a long while, and I actually didn’t like him very much. The first time I played him, I noted that I had a hard time controlling his Q, and I thought that would have changed by now considering that it’s been several months, but nope. I also found it hard to hit all of his other abilities. That said though I did make a game-winning play with his ult in an ARAM, according to tect.
I played Ivern as well and can I just say how much I wish that support Ivern was a thing? I think he’s totally capable of supporting given that he has a root AND a shield (just like Lux and Morgana). Sure, his bushes are kind of useless, but…it’s fine!!! It’s fine. Right?? (Please say yes, I want to play him so badly.)
The rotating game mode for the past couple weeks has been Blood Moon. I’m not a huge fan of it; it kind of felt like a more boring version of Ascension (I say more boring because you can only play a small handful of champions).
I know you guys are probably expecting me to talk about the Star Guardian skins given how excited I am for them but they literally just came out, so next week!
For now though, there is a new ‘Which Star Guardian Are You?’ quiz out, which I am stoked for. I loved the original quiz and was thrilled to find that it existed a few months ago, and I thought that my results were pretty accurate. I don’t like this one as much – partially because you get a randomized selection of questions each time, therefore it’s kind of hard to get a reliable answer. I took it a few times and got Soraka, Ezreal and Ahri. I didn’t feel like any of their descriptions fit me as well as the Lux and Jinx results did, but Soraka was definitely closest and the first result I got.
Let’s be real though, I LOVE being the centre of attention. I still think that the most accurate result I’ve gotten was Star Guardian Jinx:
You are a rebellious spirit who craves freedom above all. It takes some time for you to warm up to people, but once you make a friend, there is nothing you won’t do to protect them. You’re annoyed by people trying to run your life and find a regular routine boring. You may doubt yourself at times, but your true friends know that you will accomplish incredible things. You swallow gum probably more often than you should.
5 days after I took that quiz, I quit my job. So I guess you could say that I hate routine.
Death snack of the week: Rolo hot chocolate
P.S. Thank you thank you thank you for 300 followers on Twitch and 150 subscribers on Youtube! Next goal – 500 on both! Let’s make it happen people!
P.P.S. Initial thought just from overhearing tect playing Star Guardian Ahri – is it just me or did they base her voiceover on beauty vloggers?? (No shade; I love me some beauty vloggers.) Byeeeeeeeee!
