And as promised!

And I never break promises. Nope, but I know you do. You know what I am talking about, that one thing? Yeah, feel bad now.
This video will be a great change of pace, considering how we haven't had commentary in a while, although it is a little lighter that what I would have liked content wise, Taric usually doesn't have super exciting games oh OH DAMN moments that frequently. I think I have one or two this game, but it's a lot less exciting getting a clutch heal than it is to pentakill the enemy team. Anywho, enjoy and be expecting more!

Wellllll, it's been too busy

Yeah, so I might have totally screwed up and forgotten to upload my videos the past couple of days, but I have been way too damn busy. First, I had to replace the rear struts on my car and that didn't go smoothly at all (still fixing it at the moment), I've been working 9 hours days, which just eats up a lot of daylight, I had to fix my mother's computer (of course she didn't do any data backups and her hard drive was failing, THAT was fun, thank god for linux), and I am finishing a case I am designing for my girlfriend (was saudering some electrical crap because we are doing cold cathodes and UV lights inside it). Long story short, I was really busy and the video slipped my mind. Don't worry, I am doing two new commentary videos for one ranged Hybrid AD/AP champ and one support champ and then will come the gameplay. Until tomorrow, though, you guys will just have to wait in eager antici...... pation.

Monday, June 13, 2011

And for no reason, it seems to work again!

Well guys, after an exciting day of trying to fix my car (still not working right) I am back into the full swing of things and it looks like that I will be able to post from work still. Just had to threaten the computer to get it to work.
Assuming that I am not completely swamping with bullshit after work (still a possibility) I will be having a new champion making his way into my videos soon.
For those who were asking, I am using FRAPS to record my games, and then I use Ultra Video Joiner to compress them into three different videos and, if commentary is needed, I am using Sony Vegas.

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I swear I didn't miss a day, you just added one!

Yeah, yesterday was a busy day at work, quite possibly one of the busiest of the year for me, and to make things worse, I wasn't able to access my blog from work, so that meant that I missed a day.
So much... AOE...tankiness.... Oh well, it's still enjoyable for you guys. :P

Friday, June 10, 2011

Egad! It's that short!?

God, you perverts out that really should be ashamed! Anywho, this particular series is only two episodes long, so it's already done! Don't worry, I know you want more Sean Connery, so what I have done is played two different games with him. Our team comp remains the same, but the next team we fight was, well, interesting. Let's just say I was NOT looking forward to playing past the point where everyone was level 6.

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Just another Poppy Game... WITH SEAN CONNERY!

Yup guys, it seems that even certain celebrities have fallen under the spell of League of Legends, and I managed to run into one! What, I am just stereotyping an accent and generalizing a group of people? It isn't even the right country? Well, sir, you are just a skeptic!

Oh, and the gameplay is pretty good too. A little rough at some points, but hell, it is a new threes team we just threw together and it is in ranked play. Every team has growing pains.

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I can't think of a way to make the title of this post cleaver

See what I did thar? Yeah, it was pretty bad, what can you do, though? The next series has already been recorded and I am in the process up uploading it right now, it is not really special because of the characters chosen, but more so who is playing it. Don't worry, you will see soon enough what I am talking about. :D
Oh, and yesterday I was playing in a game where every single person got double phil stone, just like on my poppy guide, and I was playing Taric. This REALLY pissed me off because the one time I could I countered my build to show you what to do against players like me, I am playing a support champion... Oh well.

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Mundo Blogs where he pleases!

Cleaver, Cleaver, Cleaver, Cleaver, Ult. Yup. That is pretty much a Mundo guide. Sometimes, when they try to stun you, you turn on fire. GG. Well, it's not really that simple, but it might as well be when it comes to 3's. I really don't play him much for this reason, because it, well, just isn't fun.
As far as the new videos are coming with new champs, I managed to find a manageable build for lane taric, although it is so similar to poppy it is depressing. What can you do though? After getting whomped in solo queue, I wanted to feel good, so I went to play as poppy in a few 3's games and carried hard. Why is this relevant? Because I actually ran into a player who told me well played, and meant it, even though he lost! Maybe the tribunal is working?

Monday, June 6, 2011

It's a bit early but...

I've already started partying, woo!!!! One of my buddies is getting off early, and I actually have the day off, so that means that I am going to enjoy it as much as I can.
As such, I will be leaving you another older video, but at least it is a new champion, Mundo!

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Another series wrapping up here

Ah another series wrapped up. I haven't been gaming much the past couple days, it's been inventory at the store, which means that I got to pull down every box, put as much out as I can, count the box, and stock it as high up as the ladder will take me. It is great exercise, but a tad bit exhausting mentally. After about 25 hours of that nonsense, I am ready to keel over and die. Oh well, not too much longer and it is back to fixing computers and sitting on my ass!
I wanted to give a special thanks to Sqintyeye over at for mentioning me as being a super awesome blog. Now I have to actually keep this blog entertaining or I will let him down. :P

Anivia looks conspicuously like a pokemon, just sayin'

I know that is another Pokemon reference, but it is kinda hard to ignore the giant ice bird in the room, especially considering how much of my childhood was Pokemon. I've been playing a little bit of the new champ, Orianna, some Taric, and a mishmash of other champs. So far, it has been interesting, but hopefully I will be able to get a group together to screw around and carry my ass.

As you can see, it goes down that way all the time. :P

Friday, June 3, 2011

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, I know

You are thinking, damn Xenot, why don't you just put the highlights up, these games are so long! Well, it is because, as a guide, it is pointless to put up little clips and a lot of the humor in a game happens over the WHOLE game, not just in little clips. I have considered putting up highlights, and I still am considering it, but I just feel like it ruins the whole feel of the game. I don't know, maybe there are just too many crowds to cater too and I will just have to choose one.

On a less depressing note, these full 5 premades with constant banter are always entertaining at the least. :P

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Man, with this many videos, you wonder if I do anything else in my spare time...

The answer is yes, but I have no idea on how I do it, especially considering that I LOVE to sleep. The good news is that I am working on a new champion right now, although I apparently have a thing for pain in the ass champions who can't farm for crap lately. Well, soon enough I be familiar enough with um to post a video or two  of me getting stomped, but trying valiantly! In the mean time...
Here is an Anivia full premade game series! Woooooo!

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

When games are so bad you just can't rage

As expected, here is the third and final part of the series. Ya know, though, these games that are full of people who aren't playing the way they are supposed to does shake things up a bit. While you do lose them sometimes, at least it beats the rote repetition of  playing the same champions with the same item builds, etc. It's always nice to spice things up every once and a while, although since I am a try hard, just not too often. :P

Magewick and Friends, A Fail Game on Both Teams Parts

...Part 2.
The nightmare continues. This was one of those games where you swear people were trolls because they were so bad, but somehow... they were serious, and, of course, claiming that they carried the whole game. I don't know, I have my bad games, and I not the best gamer out there, but there are just those games where you wonder what the hell happened to player skill. I know you guys have been there! You think you get magically good, but you just happened upon some of the.. not so skilled players and next thing you know.... GODLIKE!

Monday, May 30, 2011

I am returned

Yup, back from my epic camping excursion, covered with bug bites, several cases of beer later, and many trails hiked. Overall, it was a pretty good experience, but nothing beats coming home to a real bed, a shower, convenient food, and climate control. So, while I am sitting here nursing my wounds from my adventure, I shall continue my blogging experience!
I will post a recent epic fail video where I don't even know how I won, but yeah, bad times all around. I have been thinking of other games I can record and play as well guys, but I don't have a lot of cash to throw around. We will see what happens. :P

Friday, May 27, 2011

A Four Part Series?

Yeah, sometimes my games DO run a little longer than I expect. Only because I want to have that much more fun, not because I suck sometimes. I WANTED to drag it out.... Ahem.
Anywho, I will be camping this weekend, so I might miss one day of posting?! Don't try to talk me out of it, I already have 3 cases of beer and a bottle of vodka for myself!
Oh and my favorite part of this video starts at about 5:30 and goes through 6:30. If you only watch a short part of this clip, which you would regret, that is the part to watch.

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Oh, I know you have been waiting for this one.

Probably not, actually. But maybe one of you guys out there really has been looking forward to the third part of this series? Boring day at work? Girlfriend won't stop talking? Get through the boredom and drone her out with the antics of my exciting video series! 
I promise, violence, profanity, and raging!

Another reason to upload ahead of time

Because sometimes you decide to go out and drink a lot of a certain kind of beverage that leads you to want to sleep away the day. Just glad that I planned ahead!

And so what if it was on a Tuesday night? Every night is a party night!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Whew, gotta do that stuff ahead of time

And I mean AHEAD of time. Each video I upload, averaging 11-14 minutes, takes about 90 minutes to upload to Youtube using my AT&T U-Verse package. It hurts me in my gaming soul. Essentially, if I want to get a video up, I have to upload it the day before because, with work, it really isn't feasible for me to get the videos out before 9 pm. Enough of my griping!
This is another Poppy video, this time in a 5v5, and  is a longer game, 4 videos actually. Still need to get the 4th up (see above reason), but I find this one more entertaining to me. Hope you guys like the newer videos and this guy isn't someone I have had in game with me before. We have fun. :P
Oh, and just for the record, I use Kaspersky Pure for my antivirus. Boot time scans are kick ass (you Avast guys know what I am talking about) and, yeah, I got mine for free. Perks of being a tech and talking to these companies. Really hate the stupid "vulnerabilities scan" though. Basically tried to disable everything on your PC.

Monday, May 23, 2011

Nothing to see here.

And I mean it. Literally nothing. Nope. I am at work and I didn't upload the new videos last night because I ran out of time. That means that I can't post anything until later. Sorry kids. Hey, at least they are new videos coming! So far this month I have covered Rammus, Singed, Poppy, and Anivia ( I think). I know what the poll says to the side, but any specific characters you guys want to see me fail with next?

Oh, and I suppose I can have some fun here. I am not if you guys know, but I work as a technician in the real world and, just because I am bored and like hearing opinions, what is your favorite antivirus. Oh, and if you have a real reason other than, "Herp derp I had McAfee in 1995 and I hated it", feel free to say, the techier the better.  If you are a herp derp when it comes to it, well, I like painful virus stories, so go for it. I promise new video later!

Sunday, May 22, 2011

A complete series in a row?! Without some break?

I feel like this is some sort of monumental event, I posted all three videos in a sequence! Thanks to all those who posted their rage comments, they made me smile and laugh quite a bit, and, honestly, they outshine my post in my opinion. So, from now on, you guys will just be posting amusing comments and I will give you a medium to do so. Go on. Amuse me!

Oh, so you still want a video just to provide inspiration? Aight, I can do that.

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I never get mad while in game. Nope, never.

In fact, I am the most mild mannered gamer of all time. Ho ho ho, it is just a game after all.

If you guys feel like sharing today, revel me with some of your favorite raging game experiences. Be it punching your mother, yelling at your guild, or raging at your ISP.

Friday, May 20, 2011

A little give and take?

I realized today that this post, at least in comparison to the other posts I have been making, will be shorter than the other guides, simply because there isn't much content left to discuss. To make up for this, though, I have spent a pretty decent amount of time gaming, recording, compressing, and uploading a poppy game (not really that serious of one, but still a game nonetheless). It is in the upload stages now and I will have them for you shortly, so don't get upset! New videos are on the way!    EDIT: Screw this, you guys deserve a video because this post is so small. It just came up.

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Poppy could totally be a Pokemon Trainer

Seriously, just look at her. Replace the shield and hammer with a pokeball or two and put a cap on her. Looks like someone you would run into as a rival.
But what did I promise to cover today... ah yes, items and gameplay.

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

And you thought you knew...

That today would be Poppy guide part 2? Well, wouldn't that be splitting the video series that is running up a bit? Post them at the same time? Nah, that is way too much content. So yeah, I am throwing you a curve ball today and giving you the next part of the Solomon video, but what will I do tomorrow?...... 

Yeah, you are right. Continue the guide.

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

A Wild Poppy Guide Appears!

Dundly dundly dundly dundly dundly dundly, Whomp Whomp!  Yes, that is the verbal version of the pokemon wild encounter music. Yes, it does suck. As for the continuation of the video series from yesterday, well, you will just have to wait, for today, we have... the start of a Poppy guide!

Monday, May 16, 2011

An ever so slight change of pace

I know I said I would be posting a guide today, possibly, but I decided to type up part of the guide today and post it either tomorrow or the day after. In the meanwhile, I am going to continue posting videos, but this is one slightly different. Normally people are posting videos of how they or their friends did something awesome or kicked some ass, but this one is just a random pug who ended up doing that for us. 

Sorry about the background noise, it happens when you live in the same room as another person sometimes...
PS. I guess I did well too. :P

Sunday, May 15, 2011

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!

Whew, I can't believe I actually managed to think of a name for this post. I thought I was going to have to go with the video title! How laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy. :P
 After this post I should be able to start typing up another guide for you guys. After the last one, I realized that they tend to be a little long, but thoroughness is more important than cramming it all into one post. Let me know if you want something specific, otherwise, I will default to the next one in my mental line.

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Not a whole lotta time

Yup, I am on my way to work and I don't have much time to entertain you guys with boring stories or lame jokes today. Just gonna give ya a video and let that do the talking for me, although, listening to the content, that probably isn't a good idea. Sometimes, I just try wayyyyyyyyyyy too hard. But maybe it works for someone? Maybe? :P

Friday, May 13, 2011

This is the blog that doesn't end!

No it goes on and on my friends! Some idiot, starting posting it not knowing what it was, and he is stuck creating posts forever just because this is the blog that doesn't end...
Okay, enough of that. Today, as per usual, I have more videos for you kids while I think up what guide I want to write next. If you feel like it, name a champion or guide type, and perhaps it shall sway my mind.
I am not responsible for any lame jokes or crappy gameplay in this heimer video. Another old video, I know, but I am running out and won't have a choice but to put new ones soon!

EDIT: As you are probably all aware, blogger royally screwed up and deleted the Rammus Guide Part 3 and also lost all of your comments in the process. Bastards. Basically means I can't answer any questions. I don't know if I will get up the effort to retype it all, but who knows? Sorry bout that guys, hate on blogger for me.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Serious Business, Part 3

Man, it just feels so lazy to post the name of the video as the name of the blog. Whatever, what is in a name anyway? Just so you guys know, I have been messing around with the new hero and playing, of course, A LOT against her. Yeah, I hate her, she is basically a ranged poppy, and having the two of them in lane together is retarded. It basically goes like this, poppy ult, dive, stun against turret, Vayne stuns them against turret again, all while dealing massive enhanced damage that resets their auto attacks. Regardless, enjoy the last of this video and we will see what comes next!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Rammus Guide, Part 3

See, I only like about 50 percent of the time guys! <.<
Well, I left off in lane phase, not really discussing any specific item builds. One reason for this is that the way I play Rammus, items aren't as key as they are with other chars. Your characters disruption capacity is what makes you so valuable, and really, survivability is almost never a concern until late, late game. Normally, though, I start off with a heart of gold, even though it was nerfed, and from there, you build according to the situation.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I hate coming up for names for posts.

First off, let me say that sometimes I suck and don't post for a while. When this happens, hit up for some entertainment. He does song reviews, food reviews (Stuff he makes himself with the approval of Punkin) and a bunch of other shit.

Moving on, tomorrow I should have the time to completely and accurately finish off the rammus guide, part 3. But whatever will my viewers do until then? Fortunately, I have an outstanding video to continue, so enjoy more Heimerdinger action. Oh how I wish I had that fro..

Oh, and    :P

Monday, May 9, 2011

Just on a side note....

I forgot to mention that I hit the big 132!!!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Oh, and this is also the shortest post I will ever make. That is all. :D

So I lied...

I didn't get part 3 posted last night, mah bad guys. I had a final this morning and I have to go teach a supplemental course at the college right now, so I will give you a video to hold you over. Freakin' school, always interrupting my real life.

This is a complete bullshit game playing with hiemer. Can't be serious all the time, can we?

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Rammus Guide Part 2

Now let's see, where did I leave off..... PVP!

When it comes to ganking, with Rammus I prefer to gank the lane in which the enemy champs are at least halfway pushed out in their lane. Wards are no concern if you time your powerball right, being that you blaze right past them. If you know there aren't any wards, camping in grass alongside the lane is great too. Either way, you are going to be powerballing in about halfway through your duration with powerball, just to get your speed up, and going for the target who does not have flash, or the lowest in health if they both have a flash. With powerball and red buff, the double slow effect will actually mean that flash doesn't mean much, especially with a well timed taunt. Another important note that I forgot, Summoner skills! Of course, in jungle you have to take smite with rammus, and the 2nd choice is either ghost or flash. I choose flash every time because while normally ghost lets you ignore creep collision, this effect is negated when using powerball. Because surprise is of utter importance, and movement speed plus slowing your enemy is huge on a gank, it seems like a no brainer to me. One final point is that when people know rammus and see you plowing into a set of creeps, it is always funny to flash OVER the creeps and catch them unprepared.

This phase basically continues until the laning phase ends, with you occasionally covering solo lanes that need to recover. At this point... you wait until a little later for the End Game Phase and item builds! Today, I promise.

Saturday, May 7, 2011

Rammus Guide Part 1

Well, it looks as if I have no choice but to do a Rammus Guide.

First off, a little about Rammus. He is a tanky, trash talking, mutant, armadillo from the desert. His character doesn't emote for shit, and the only interactions you get from him are grunts and the occasional, guttural, "Okay." Despite this, he still manages to taunt his oppenents into attacking him (a feat I shall never understand). Rammus, at first glance, is your run of the mill tank. His passive scales his damage based on how much armor he has(a tragic downfall for many Rammus. I will explain later). But is there more than meets the eye?

Dun Dun Dun!!!

I have a really weird work shift today guys, so I won't be posting the real post until later (maybe lunch). However, I will not be posting a video today, and I will being doing.... A GUIDE!!!!    Those who see this post and respond have first dibs on helping me make up my mind on which character to do of these: Poppy, Anivia, Singed, or Rammus. These are just to start guys, so don't worry if you want other guides. :P

Friday, May 6, 2011

Without further ado....   Cough Cough. Follow it even though she hasn't posted and is being very lazy, but you don't want to miss out on the first post. Cough Couch. Woo this time of year has me hacking! Sorry again to those earlier who followed the first account, which I had to change due to technical issues. Yes, I am full of fail. I blame it on final and schoolwork, has me pretty beat. Anywho, the finisher to the video yesterday, I did record a new video the other day, just have to edit it and see if it is in anyway entertaining. Just as an initial post for the day

Hey guys, I will be posting the regular video a little later today, but I wanted to make a note of something. Whenever you get a chance, head by my girlfriend's new blog  It will be coming up today, and I would strongly encourage you guys to swing by follow her so you can be there from start to finish. I know I can count on you guys. Thanks in advance and see you guys later.

EDIT: I made a huge mistake with how I was setting things up. Had to change the URL. For those who haven't added yet, not a big deal, but for those who have, please visit and refollow. I know it's a pain, and I am sorry, but I know you are good sports!

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Oh look...

I am approaching 132 followers wooo!!!!! Seriously, I have seen so many approaching and I've got a got 100 followers posts that I decided to be a little different, shake it up a bit. The new important number is 132! Yes, you should post your own 132 followers success if you have a blog, and if you already passed this, be ready for the big 272!
On a gaming note, I am pretty stuck on League right now, so sorry to you Portal 2 desirers, etc. Maybe when summer kicks in and I get bored I will do some retro playthroughs, but brand new games are doubtful. There are plenty of other posters for that stuff.
I will start varying things a bit though, I have some old videos I just uploaded, featuring Singed, Mundo, and Anivia will be coming. Those are just the first three, seeing as how I play like 20 champions. Poppy will be next in there as well. Do you guys want me to post guides along with the videos, or separately? I am thinking separately, because as far as I am concerned, the guides are for players, the videos are for entertainment. Keeping them separate lets me keep everyone happy and won't burn me out.
One final thought. I know that there is the occasional swearing in my videos and I was wondering if this bothers you guys. If so, I will try to clean it up as much as I can. If not, well, hell yeah.

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

And to Finish off this AP series

Here is the finish to this particular series with Karthus. I was also thinking yesterday that after I have a couple sets of videos up, I might be doing some written commentary and strategies. Videos are fun and all, but it's always nice to have something else for all you leaguers out there.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

These video series might become my thing.

Just because of the sheer amount of time it takes to play and record the game, edit the video, etc, I may be doing each game in a three video series. Of course, they will be uploaded to my youtube ahead of time so you can see it anyway, but there is no way to do one fresh video a day, even in summer. But anyway, on with the 2nd part. Do I feed? Do I carry? Find out!

Monday, May 2, 2011

Just Because

Seeing as how active my blog has been, and the abundance of older videos I have lying around, I decided to throw a few more up in the mean time.

Finally, it is part 3.

And this one will end my introduction series and  I will hopefully be getting newer material out as soon as finals are done. Until then, try to curb your thirst for the fields of justice with this! Enjoy!

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Have to finish what you start!

Just thought that I would include the 2nd video, only one more to go. Don't be too harsh now, and newer ones will be coming!

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Not bad for a first post

Hey guys, I just thought that I would give you a teaser of some of my videos to come. It is a little aged, but, hey, it's just a first post!
