Fundamental Game Shifts Lie at the Center of LoL's Top Lane Debate
If you’ve kept track of the major current events in League of Legends (or if you’ve visited the community’s subreddit even once in the past four days), you’re probably familiar with this video in which former Master/Challenger streamer Hashinshin gives his… um, shall we say, colorful take on the current state of game balance, especially from the toplaner’s perspective.

Rough start for SK Telecom

Rough start for SK Telecom
Whenever we think of SK Telecom T1, we think of greatness. The organization won 3 world championships and was at the world finals a few months ago.

The Grand General Arrives: Swain Rework Breakdown
Swain’s rework has been greatly anticipated by what seems like the majority of the community, and I don’t think Riot’s let them down.

How Will the Preseason Meta Changes Affect You?

How Will the Preseason Meta Changes Affect You?
With the introduction of the Preseason rune changes, solo-queue games will start to look slightly different than what you might’ve seen during worlds and the patches that followed. Some of the biggest changes you might see are that the Guinsoo’s late game carry botlaners and the passive Ardent Censer supports aren’t going to be an integral in your team comps

Grading the Champion Updates of 2017
As was the case in 2016, Riot has reworked the gameplay (and in most cases, visuals) of four older champions in the past year. Overhauls of this kind are typically subject to mixed reactions across the League community, but inevitably certain ones age better than others — both in solo queue and in professional play. So once again, let’s take
