MAD Lions become Europe’s kings from reverse sweeping Rogue in LEC Playoff finals

League of Legends esports teams MAD Lions have won their first-ever League of Legends European Championship (LEC) title after a reverse sweep against Rogue in a historic Spring Split Playoff finals. After G2 Esports’ loss on Saturday, the finals between Rogue and MAD meant a new king in Europe will emerge. MAD Lions proceeded to secure a 3-2 victory against Rogue to represent Europe at the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational.

LEC Spring Split Playoffs Final

The LEC Playoff finals began with a dominant performance from Rogue in the first two games. From drafts to mechanics, they outclassed MAD Lions, who found no impacts early on. Although the first game started slowly, Rogue soon switched up the pace of the game and forced fights. Their bot lane duo of  Steven “Hans Sama” Liv and Adrian “Trymbi” Trybus performed exceptionally well against their counterparts.

Unlike game one, game two was much closer between both teams. Even though MAD Lions held the better late game scaling composition, Rogue’s early advantage helped them secure victory. Rogue closed out game two after taking the dragon soul and multiple team fight wins.

MAD Lions Make History

MAD Lions needed to play perfect League of Legends esports since they were one game from losing the LEC Spring Split Playoffs. With their backs against the wall, MAD players stepped up in a must-win game three. Irfan “Armut” Tukek on the Wukong dominated top lane and also helped his team secure the win in this game. His Wukong together with Marek “Humanoid” Brazda’s Orianna brought 23 kill participations for both players, carrying the team to a game four.

Furthermore, MAD Lions carried the momentum into game four and played even better here. Armut repeated his excellent performance once again on Wukong. Rookie of the Split, Javier “Elyoya” Prades, was also instrumental to the team’s win with 11 kill participation on his Udyr.

MAD Lions forced the series to a game five and eventually edged out a win in just under 23 minutes. Rogue looked poised to lift the trophy with a 2-0 lead but fell apart. MAD Lions showed the spirit and character to pull off a massive comeback.

A new era in LEC 2021

MAD Lions’ emergence as the 2021 LEC Spring Split champions spells a new era for League of Legends esports in Europe. For the past seven years, FNATIC and G2 Esports have dominated and won every title. This is also the first time in Europe post-season history that neither G2 nor FNATIC made finals.

The finals between Rogue and MAD Lions were a welcome change for the LEC. It also shows the positive impact of talent development in Europe’s lower leagues. Since G2, the defending MSI Champions, failed to qualify, MAD Lions have big shoes to fill as Europe’s top League of Legends esports team.

How to recruit a friend in World of Warcraft

Avatar

Published

on

Blizzard Entertainment’s “Recruit A Friend” program is a way for current players to get benefits from recruiting their friends to join them in playing World of Warcraft by offering a range of rewards.

Recruiting friends to play WoW can earn you a plethora of “explorer”-themed goodies as well as free Game Time tokens. So essentially, you pay for parts of your subscription by convincing friends to play too.

Your recruited friends get a couple of benefits as well. Not only do they get an “Extra Spacious Knapsack” to help them start their journey, they also get the ability to summon the person who recruited them every 30 minutes if they’re in a group with them. So you don’t necessarily need to play a Warlock to summon your friends that you just recruited to play with you.

To start your friend recruitment process, all you need to do is go to the social tab in your retail WoW client. The default keybind for opening your friend list in WoW is “o”.

On your social panel in-game, there will be a tab next to “Friends” and “Ignore” labeled “Recruit A Friend.”

At the bottom left of that panel, there will be a red button labeled “Recruitment.” Click that and a new panel will pop out asking you if you’d like to generate a link for your friends to use when setting up their WoW account.

Once you’ve generated and copied that link. Just send it to your friends, and once they’ve set up their WoW subscription, you’ll start to get all the perks from recruiting those friends.

Here is a list of the rewards you can get from recruiting a friend in retail WoW:

  • 1 month: Pet monkey named Rikki
  • 2 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 3 months: Explorer’s Dunetrekkar mount
  • 4 months: Renowned Explorer title
  • 5 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 6 months: Stinging Sands weapon enchantment appearance
  • 7 months: Renowned Explorer’s Tabard
  • 8 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 9 months: Explorer’s Jungle Hopper mount
  • 10 months: Renowned Explorer’s Rucksack
  • 11 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 12 months: Renowned Explorer’s attire
  • Every three months after 12 months: 30 days of Game Time

Call of Duty Twitter account teases Rambo potentially coming to Warzone

Avatar

Published

The official Call of Duty Twitter account posted a cryptic message last night that appears to hint at Rambo, one of the most iconic movie characters of all time, coming to Warzone

John Rambo is the main character from the popular Rambo film series introduced in the early ’80s. Sylvester Stallone has played the character in five feature films and the latest movie was released in 2019. 

Rambo is known for his large size, dangerous demeanor, and ability to take on entire armies single-handedly. He’s appeared in other video games, like Mortal Kombat, as a playable character and the latest teaser indicates that he might be coming to Warzone

The Call of Duty Twitter account posted a message asking if anyone knows SURVIVORJOHN#1009062 and their Warzone Report is a “sight to be seen.” 

The report contains several nods to Rambo, including the obvious nod to his first name. The “player” has five wins, which is the same as the number of Rambo movies, and seven hours played, which is close to the total running time of the movies combined. The “player” also has 552 kills, which is Rambo’s reported total number of kills in the movies. 

The recent switch to Verdansk ’84 introduced the possibility of ’80s action heroes appearing in Warzone to match the setting. This teaser hints that Rambo could be the first character joining the mayhem. Other iconic characters might make an appearance in Warzone in the future, too.

Call of Duty League returns to LAN for Stage 4 Major in Dallas on June 17

Published

The Call of Duty League is going back to LAN next month after more than a year of online-only events.

The Stage Four Major, which begins on June 17, will mark the return of offline events and will be hosted at the Esports Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Major will run from June 17 to 20 and will feature all 12 of the league’s teams fighting for their share of the $500,000 prize pool and crucial CDL Points.

Nearly 14 months ago, the CDL moved to online-only competition in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The last time the CDL ran an offline event was in March 2020 when the Dallas Empire won the Los Angeles Home Series. The Empire went on to win the first CDL Championship in August and will now play host to the return of offline events.

There will be no live crowd in attendance, in accordance with “strict COVID-19 protocols,” according to the league. Only teams and limited CDL staff will be in attendance, with rapid response COVID-19 testing taking place throughout the event. Call of Duty League commentators and hosts will remain remote, while Jess Brohard will be on-site for interviews following matches.

This is part of an “initial return to live tournaments,” with all future events following strict protocols as well. Daniel Tsay, the general manager of Call of Duty esports, confirmed with Dot Esports that the Stage Four regular season matches will still be played online. So far, no decisions or announcements have been made regarding the Stage Five Major or the CDL Championship.

Before the Stage Four Major kicks off, however, the final week of Stage Three group play and the Stage Three Major have to be played. The Stage Three Major starts on May 12.
