Riven Guide

I am putting the symbolic "main" tag on Riven. I have been playing her since her release and after reading several guides and experimenting, I feel comfortable enough to write a brief guide on her.

Using game theory to explain people's poor behavior in League of Legends

As anyone who has played solo queue ranked games has witnessed, many people in League of Legends  have a very weak psyche. The smallest amount of trash talking could create a snowball effect where the whole team falls apart. It may seem odd, then, why so many players talk trash to each other at the smallest mistakes. For example, I was in a game yesterday where my team and I were completely dominating the other team for the first 25 minutes. Then, one teammate makes the mistake of not running to mid and my team loses a 4 v. 5 team fight. This causes one player to call the other one all kinds of names and we eventually lost all momentum and the game.

Will Dominion "trammelize" League of Legends?

With the launch of Dominion, League of Legends has entered into a new era. We will soon see what effect, if any, this new game type will have on Summoner's Rift. I wrote earlier that I think Dominion will be unpopular because it does not require much champion skill but instead rewards map tactics that are unique to Dominion. I still think this is true, but admittedly Dominion will be very popular for the next few months. Because champion skill is unnecessary in Dominion, I am concerned that we will see Dominion dumb down, or "trammelize" the rest of League of Legends
