Hello sea creatures, whether you be ordinary or monstrous~
So yesterday I introduced everyone to the new all female League of Legends team, The Sirens. Today I was able to watch one of their games for the first time live on twitch. Well, I’m sure all of us can predict how the game went. It was really fun to watch nonetheless cause TheOddOne does the best commentaries and it’s always entertaining to watch HotshotGG and WildTurtle.
Here’s a screenshot of the game 17 minutes in:
The Sirens were at 9 kills versus 24 kills and behind in gold by 10.5k, all of them were at negative scores and WildTurtle was ridiculously fed. I was kinda hoping against all odds that they would be able to pick up a bit later in the game but after the other team got into their base I didn’t really see a way they could make a come back. Then again, what do I know?
Just kidding, I was right (obviously). The Sirens ended up 20k behind in gold but they improved a bit in terms of kills, ratio wise I guess. I think the saddest part was that HotshotGG and WildTurtle weren’t even playing their usual positions yet Team Siren still got completely destroyed. Where was all the beating and outsmarting that Solvanas promised me? Now let’s take a look at some notable quotes by TheOddOne in this commentary.
‘Winning is NOT an option.’
‘Hotshot is doing negative damage.’
Here’s the recording: http://www.twitch.tv/tsm_theoddone/b/412733597
Oh well, the game was entertaining to watch even though the end result was rather predictable. There is also another new all female League of Legends team called ‘The Mystical Angels’ that I just heard about today. They are stationed in Malaysia and have a better promo video. Not perfect, but better nonetheless.
I’m not sure if this video is significantly better or if I’m just too scarred from the Siren’s video to know better. The video seemed to be a lot less try-hard than the video for The Sirens, which was really the main problem I had with an all girl team in the first place. But the fact of the matter is that they are still trying to use gender as the focus for marketing this game team rather than skill.
My favorite quote from the video:
‘You can make a sandwich and play games at the same time.’
I’d like to see the two all female teams face off but I don’t think that’s going to happen, being from different servers and all.
Oh well, I’m going to try to ease of League of Legends posts for now since I don’t want to turn my blog completely in that direction. But since I already have two posts about Team Siren out, I wouldn’t mind changing this blog into a League of Legends blog if someone were to, I don’t know, sponsor me? (hint, clue, nudge). Just kidding…I actually have no idea what I’m talking about most of the time in regards to League of Legends and I might end up being a try-hard Siren myself…
Anyways, enough Siren bashing! Good luck in future games Team Siren as well as all other League of Legends players who are reading this! Remember, losing is NOT an option!
