See those RP cards? A photo taken by your’s truly and uploaded this very day. We’ve got a bunch of RP, and we want to give it away to our readers! Since we’re going to be away this weekend (not at PAX East, but at a wedding!) we’re looking for your input. While allMIA goes on a short hiatus from March 22-26, tweet your contest ideas, or leave them in the comments of this post. We’ll choose the best option, run the contest, and give out RP prizes!  Our last contest was a huge success and we anticipate this one being even bigger!

“Howling Abyss” New Matchmade ARAM Mode on PBE

image
ARAM fans! Riot has heard your cries. Ever since the debut of The Proving Grounds, players have had the ability to play fan-created “all random all mid” rules on a dedicated one lane map in custom games. Since ARAMs have been limited to custom games, the chief problems with ARAM have been players dodging when they don’t get a champion they’d like to play (defeating the purpose of ARAM) and the skill gap which can plague a mode where anyone can play with anyone else. In one fell swoop, Riot seeks to snuff out these problems by introducing a matchmade ARAM queue on a whole new map: The Howling Abyss.

If you have a PBE account you can go give the new map a spin. It is unclear at this moment when the map will hit live servers, and if it will support blind and draft pick (ABAM/ADAM) modes when it does. Excited for a new ARAM map? Tell us in the comments or by tweeting to us @ill_monstro_g and if there is enough interest we will sponsor an ARAM tournament with RP prizes to celebrate the release of Howling Abyss!

Salutations, Summoners!

Our #sorryliam Twitter contest has come to a close, and resident Englishman – our very own Liam – has selected 3 winners each to receive 1380RP for their great submissions! I’m happy to report that the contest was a rousing success! Not only did we see a ton of excellent submissions, but we’ve gotten a bunch of great feedback from the community. Because of the success of this contest, we will be running more contests for RP soon so bookmark allMIA, follow me on Twitter (@ill_monstro_g) and check back frequently so that you can enter and win our next RP Giveaway!

On to the winners, of whom Liam says the following:

“You never have to say sorry because you’re bad at the game. We’re all bad at one time or another! What you have to say sorry for is being DUMB. These guys really need to apologise.”

winnersOur 3 winners will be contacted via Twitter Direct Message with their 1380RP codes. So if you’ve won – check your Twitter messages!

Best of the Rest

Even though we had only three prizes to award, we have to recognize the other top tweets that tickled our funny bones. Thanks to all who participated, and enjoy the submissions! See one you think should have won? Want to tell us how dumb we are for not picking your favorite? Tell us in the comments! And we’re sorry, so so sorry.

#sorryliam Twitter RP Giveaway!

1362985579197

Salutations Summoners! Check out our Twitter feed : @ill_monstro_g and this Reddit post! We are running a contest on Twitter to get the best tales of fail from NA summoners using #sorryliam! Share yours to win RP! Contest ends 3/13/13 @ 12am est.

Ninja Edit: a kindly reddit user has pointed out the following: ““I don’t think there are 5$ RP cards mate, the least are 10$ cards which give 1380 RP.” 

He might be right. In the event I can’t find a 650 point card, I’ll gladly grab 3 1380RP cards for the winners, no problem. I want this contest to result in a funny collection of posts I can share with the community, and 30 bucks isn’t too high a price to pay. Hurry and enter!!
