League of Legends: Summoner's Rift Preview

Yesterday, Riot Games released a five-minute video showcasing changes to League of Legends' Summoner's Rift map. In brief they include:

Dota 2: New "Fantasy Dota"

"Fantasy Dota is a game that you can play with up to nine of your friends, where each of you forms teams made up of pro players to compete against each other, earning points for your team based on how each of your pro players performs in tournament matches."

Valve introduced and tested this out back in February, and now it’s ready for action. Starting on May 19th, Season 1 of Fantasy Dota runs for 70 days until July 28th. If you have a Fantasy Ticket from the The International Compendium, you can start drafting your fantasy teams now.

League of Legends Team Builder Goes Live

Tired of practicing a lane in League of Legends bot matches, just to queue up with a group and not get your desired role? Trust me, we've all been there when solo-queuing and not getting your lane can often times be more upsetting than losing a match entirely. Luckily, Riot has responded to the community's cries and has introduced a new feature that helps you claim the role you want and join, or build, the perfect team for you.

Introducing the latest feature to land in the game: "Team Builder".

Congratulations to the first six winners and runners up of 2013!
