    Hum, excellent blog Araneae. I'll definetly keep checking in for updates.

    EU LoL is much more competitive than the US.

    Take a look at my League blog sometime:

    It's more US orientated, but it's much the same.

    As for the tournament, hopefully there will be some videos, because I'm eager to see how it goes.
