I play all of the games modes in League of Legends. So I always have the joy of explaining how to play a game mode to friends. Here is an instance of explaining the Hunt of the Blood Moon game mode to someone over text message in my own words.
So it's a cat and mouse game. The objective is to get to 350 points first. Killing champs gives you small amount of points, like any other LOL points based game modes. Killing roaming spirits in the enemy jungle net you 5 points each. Killing demons (baron and dragon locations) net you something like 25 to 30 points. Oh here is the point system:
Like other point based game modes, objectives is more important to winning the game than farming champions. And there is really no farming champions in this mode other than the glory. Because you get insane amount of gold over time like Nexus Siege. Game lasts average 13 minutes. The key to winning the game is to complete objectives without getting killed. And to gank assassination the other team members. There is teleporting back to base. So don't forget to teleport back to buy stuff. Cool down is reduced. You get three abilities right off the bat. So it's a good game mode to practice assassin champs. After you kill 3 champs... Your screen turns red. That means you gain full health and invisibility. You have 45 seconds to use your powers to assassinate. Your first attack does massive amount of damage to the enemy.
Here are the twenty champions available in this game mode: Diana, Talon, Kassadin, Shaco, Zed, Pantheon, Rengar, Ahri, Elise, Akali, Ekko, Katarina, Fizz, Camille, Evelynn, Kennen, Kha'Zix, LeBlanc, Lee Sin, and Yasuo.
I had games where the enemy was killing us left and right. But by taking down the demon three times we won the game. The champion kills are basically a wash for both teams... unless the teams are very lobsided. There is also no defense items.
I've been using the horde army deck exclusively for the past year or so. Since I started, Super Cell has been releasing so many hard counter cards for it. But the balance change coming in two days seems like a huge improvement for the horde army deck. We explain the balance changes effect in the video below. Watch it and let us know what you think.
The League of Legends claims that Blood Moon's average game length is 30 to 45 minutes (see screen shot below). But based on the two games I played, they lasted no more than 20 minutes. The first game I ever played lasted 17 minutes while the second game lasted 13 minutes. Watch the second game below. The first game is available in the TrackBack section below.
League of Legends released a new game mode today, called Blood Moon. It is on the same Summoner's Rift map. But has objectives that are points based, similar to games modes like Dominion, Definitely Not Dominion, and Ascension. And instead of being able to use all of the champions, you can only pick among these 20 assassins:
Diana, Talon, Kassadin,Shaco, Zed, Pantheon, Rengar, Ahri, Elise, Akali, Ekko, Katarina, Fizz, Camille, Evelynn, Kennen, Kha'Zix, LeBlanc, Lee Sin, and Yasuo.
If you love playing assassins, then you might feel right at home in this mode. ;-)
Every time your team kill an enemy champion, your team gets 5 points. Killing an enemy team's roaming spirit nets your team 3 points. And killing the Demon Heralds--where the dragon and baron sit--gains your team 25 points each.
If you played any of LOL's points based game modes, then you'll soon realize killing the enemy champions doesn't always win you the game. It's collecting points through these other methods that ultimately helps.
Watch the following video as I play Blood Moon for the very first time...
Ok... after looking at the memory setting screen on the Google LG Nexus 5, I realized that "Switch display content" has no significant meaning. It is just a fancy way of saying pull down menu. The screen shot below shows that the phrase is nonexistant on the Nexus 5.
And selecting the hours just changes the display and the data show. It doesn't change the device operation.
I've been using my trusted Google LG Nexus 5 for a long time. But in the past few months, it's been turning off all by itself for no apparent reason. The problem manifests more when using the camera. But just this last week, the problem has gotten worse. It not only turns off intermittently, but it also fails to boot up more and more often. And it fails to boot up even with a fully charged battery. By last week, it won't boot up at all unless the AC adapter is plugged into the USB port.
Seems like a battery issue. But I have another BL-T9 Nexus 5 battery. And the Nexus 5 exhibits the same symptom with both batteries. So I have not give it another thought. But after weeks of fussing with it, I finally decided that both old batteries are the culprit, because the phone boots up fine on AC power.
I ordered a new BL-T9 battery. It arrived yesterday. After installing it today, the phone boots up by itself and has so far not shut down yet. It looks like when the phone shuts down intermittently, the battery may be too old and dying.
