Last Month On Reddit League Of Legends
It's not hard to fall in love with Reddit, in fact, it's quite easy. Especially when you are already in love with League of Legends. On /r/leagueoflegends you can find, pr team updates, guides, podcasts, articles, blogs, art, music, and more! That's why I decided to make this blog, 'Last Month On Reddit League Of Legends'. Each day I will take the top /r/leagueoflegends content and catalog it. At the end each month, you'll get a post like this. So take a look back at what happened on /r/leagueoflegends in April! *The top content is taken between 4-6pm each day depending when I am able to do so.
April Fools Day brought back memories of of Urf Day, a tragic day in League of Legends history. An image of Warwick's Urf skin was in the number one slot to remind Riot that they have had lack luster April Fools promotions the last few years.April Fools also brought a nice little prank thanks to the mods of /r/leagueoflegends and /r/heroesofnewerth. The two subreddits swapped their feeds for the day causing /r/leagueoflegends readers to see /r/heroesofnewerth and vice versa. The number one submission on /r/heroesofnewerth was entitled 'Something happened to my HoN client. Anyone else get this?' #1 Comment
- I got unbelievably excited when I saw the Fizz skin. Then I realized I'm broke and don't have enough RP to buy it and still have enough for Pulsefire Ezreal. Throw in Bunnygirl Riven and I'm just a big pile of sad and confused.

The top spot on the 2nd addressed a common complaint about AFK summoners in champion select. This has always been a problem for as long as I can remember. The OP basically calls out summoners who queue for a match then proceed to be AFK for champion select. If you queue... DON'T GO AND DO SOMETHING ELSE! You are ruining other people's experiences, not cool.
- Why does ranked matter? Do it for all modes. It is so annoying when it happens

The number one post for April 3rd was a screenshot of a Riot fail. Riot announced that Blitzcrank Corki and Rumble would be on sale through the 6th. Yet, the image that they posted was of Heimer Corki and Rumble. C'mon Riot... Rookie mistake.
- Definitely not Blitzcrank.

Bahahahahahaha. This one is good. The OP was a screenshot of a captcha for tribunal. The captcha reads: "U G A Y". Perhaps JohnnyTeqilla is gay, perhaps he isn't... we may never know. Oh, and one more thing, Manamune on Sivir? Really?
- BEEP BOOP F*#K THE TRIBUNAL

Jatt, ex-pro player and shoutcaster, made his way onto the top Reddit posts with an update about his current employment status. Jatt joined Riot! Congrats to him, he will be working as an Associate Game Analyst. More importantly, Jatt enjoys Rubik's Cubes and juggling.
- Best of luck Jatt, good to see it all worked out for you :)

Of course, when Battle Bunny Riven hits the store, it's big news. One of the most anticipated skins of all time take the top spot on Reddit the day it was released.
Posting this again as it may not get as much attention in the other thread:
Skin is cool, but it needs some attention. I can't imagine it will stay this way, if so it's a big oversight and fairly sloppy. See images below:

She's not holding the sword properly. The normal skin holds it properly while the Redeemed skin is a bit off as well, but the Battle Bunny's giant white glove really shows the error.
Aside from that the ground effects from Q is a nice change, too. Cool skin overall.

A photo from PAX East took the top spot on the 8th. This really doesn't need to much explanation... Eve be stealthed, hilarity ensues.

The bored in class doodle of the month definitely goes to the artist behind this maze. It's a friggin hard maze too. It took me about 4 or 5 print outs and a solid 30 minutes of not working here at the Radio Station. For that, I thank the OP for making my job better. :)
- mimics the pathing in this game pretty closely

This is definitely the fan skin of the month. Excellent job done by MaTTcom! The next step is to continually petition Riot on the forums to get this skin in the game. It's worked before. So, put on your troll faces and spam this skin on the forums!
- RIOT!!! HIRE. THIS. MAN!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN MAKE IT HAPPEN MAKE IT HAPPEN MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Juking in order to survive is one thing, but juking just to piss of an enemy player is a whole other thing. Quite possibly one of the funniest series of jukes I have ever seen. Well done, turnzdatburnz. <- With a name like that, it makes the whole situation extra troll.
- I can't even imagine how terrible it feels to be that Nocturne. You can see he starts to recognize the pattern, but he keeps thinking "surely this guy is going to stop trolling me" and plays accordingly, expecting eventually you'll leave the bushes. Nope.

Sure, it doesn't make all the sense in the world, but I get the drift. Purdue University printed this cartoon in their student news paper last month. You crazy college kids and your "printed word" news papers.
- These homework

How sweet would this be!? The only change to the loading screen in the last 2 years was the addition of the skin name... That hardly seems like enough. Riot, if you can make this flavor of loading screen possible, you should make it happen.
The top spot on the 14th goes to a change that happened first on the PBE servers. They changed the 'fall back' ping to be 'be careful.' This change is only for when you don't ping on an ally, enemy, or structure. Those ping warnings remained the same.
- Now we just need a "That's warded" ping.
