Can we do 10pm Sunday? If it doesn't get done then, we might not get points for the first week of LCS. If you can't make it I'll remake the league and re-invite everyone who joined before.

As for OGN, the Jin Air v Tigers series is really heating up. Super close second game that Pray hard carried on Kog'Maw despite GBM pulling out a genuinely scary Xerath. Now we're going into game three, can't wait to see if one of the teams will auto lose by blind picking Xerath again

If you guys are bored of the usual meta, you should watch this Chinese league where Sivir is the Queen ADC.

I've really been enjoying watching it the last few days, it feels very different to the usual NA meta, it seems to be very reliant on technical skill more than anything.

The heated intensity of Genja and Edward hating each other during Gambit's major competitive lull before their roster changes. Time lord Genja was working on new builds to capitalize on mana maximization and farming 300 CS before engaging a single enemy champion. Edward was looking into playing non-conventional things like Amumu and Gragas just so he had more opportunities to fly into the enemy team and slap the poo poo out of them before dying as much as possible. Really it's pretty clear looking back on it that they were totally incompatible as teammates.

So I work very long hours on weekdays. A draft that I take part in would have to be either on weekends, tomorrow (on account of holiday), or 11 PM EST or after. However, if this is the one factor that prevents other people from drafting at reasonable times, the TIGER MILLIONAIRES are happy to take an auto-draft.

I've tried like three times to get into LPL and I just can't. Even though the level of play has raised there and has lowered in Korea, I just don't care about the LPL teams at all. I wish Korea had just paid their players more. Also I much prefer listening to Monte/DOA than whoever the Aussie guys are doing the LPL English.

I'm fine with tonight, it just has to be after Downton Abbey (so after 10 EST).

Also I will watch any time that Kakao or Dandy is on and of course I'm excited about the new OMG but beyond that I don't care about LPL either.

Yeah, Invictus is my only horse in LPL, on account of KaKAO and Rookie being from my favorite OGN team of last season. They're looking great so far, but they haven't really been tested - they're 4-0 against teams that have gone 0-4.

EDIT: Haha and their next week's schedule is entirely against 0-4 teams as well.

OMG are my boys, for being an elite team of only Chinese players, no Korean imports at all. They're like the C9 of China and I want them to win everything (Plus Gogoing's jaw is so drat manly), but EDG, LGD and iG look really goddamn scary. I also want Vici Gaming to do well, if only for Vasili, and I'm surprised they've done so poorly so far. The other teams I know very little about/care very little about.

The LPL casters are really awful, they spend more time laughing their own jokes and fellating each other than actually commenting the game. The games are at least interesting enough, omg, edg, lgd and ig are looking really good. OMG especially since I expected team synergy issues with carry players in 3 different positions but they looked great so far, each having their own time to shine. Same thing with LGD, looking forward to Uzi vs Imp and Flame vs Gogoing in the same match.

Yeah the casters the downside to the LPL, but I think they'll get there with some practice.

I'm watching Week one Day 2 right now, and loving christ this Royal Club vs M3 match. Royal gives up FB and another kill for absolutely loving nothing, it's so dumb. LPL is worth watching if you're an ADC or support because you can peep proper canceling and watch Mata, but that's about it.

I work from home and I watch almost all the games on VOD on a second monitor while I'm working. I've watched NA/EU/Korea almost in their entirety for the last two years. There's no way I could keep up with it if I didn't have literally the best working arrangement a person could have in life.

3. Jonny Angel
4. Libertine
5. Invalid_Validation
6. Manic_Misanthrope
7. Zerilan
8. Monathin

Tomorrow night doesn't work for TWSS, so can we all do Tuesday? I can do pretty much anytime during the day or after about 8pm that day. It's not the end of the world if you don't get to draft, as Riot's auto-drafter is pretty decent, but I'd like for everyone to get a chance.

League of Mystery is drafting in an hour and a half, hopefully we don't end up with over half the league auto-drafting. If we go through the first round and there's less than four of us, I say we let the CPU auto draft everything else so it isn't totally unfair.

I don't want to end up with over half our league ending up with auto-drafts because of the weird scheduling we had.
