Anti-Bullying Day & Small Update

Pink Taric says bullying is truly outrageous

This is a short update post.

Today is anti-bullying day (last wednesday in the month of February), so make sure you wear pink on summoners rift! Pink Taric is the best Taric skin! On a more serious note, eSports has always suffered from the social stigma of being a "geeky" interest which aligns itself with aspects of bullying in schools. As many of my readers are more likely to stand on their victim side of bullying, I just want to remind you to keep strong, report bullies, and stand up for those who are being bullied.

As for what this blog holds, I am proud to declare that yesterday I have hit an all-time record on view counts a day. I hit a grant total of 14,278 views in one day thanks to traffic from Reddit and the League of Legends forums! Thank you for everyone who took their time to read my State of the Jungle series as it is extremely encouraging for me.

As for my post on ganking the three lanes which I mentioned almost a month ago, I am still working on part 1. This article is turning out to be extremely long, and detailed. I keep finding more things to add and extending the time it takes for completion. Regardless, I look forward to the release of this article series.

Lee Sin Compilation & Small Update

Short post on one of my favourite Lee Sin Compilation's of all time. I am a pretty avid Lee Sin player myself; however, some of these clips are, quite frankly, insane. Enjoy.

Also, a short update on what I am currently working on. I am currently trying to complete an in-depth 'understanding' three part series on ganking the three lanes. Look for the upcoming posts!

eSports, Social Stigma, and the Spirit of Competition

"I have League of Legends practice in 10 minutes, sorry I can't play with you guys."   
"I still can't believe you practice with your team of online friends, it's like you consider this a sport."  

This is a conversation I had with a friend recently and it relates to the source of a topic that really grinds my gears. This is an opinion piece or rant, for a lack of a better word, so do not expect to find the typical League of Legends educational theory-crafting that make up the majority of my posts.
