Pro Player Pick: Lilballz Picks Alistar
Welcome to this week’s Pro Player Pick, where we feature one of the best League of Legends players discussing his champion of choice.
In this edition, Lilballz picks Alistar. As jungler for the World Champion Taipei Assassins, Lilballz was eager to talk about the Minotaur’s tankiness and disruptive power. Alistar has great ganking potential when using his Pulverize-into-Headbutt combo, which becomes even more potent once team fights break out. Alistar can knock weak foes into the middle of his team or bat enemy assassins away from squishy allies. Add in his spammable heal and fortifying ultimate and you’ve got a champion well worth his place on any team.
Prized events promotion
Riot is looking into promoting user submitted tournaments
As far as major stuff goes, we make large announcements on the leagueoflegends.com homepage, and sometimes even in-game client takeovers. You'll always have quick access to watch the games, and partner organizations (like MLG, IPL, OGN, ESL, etc) will have more information about qualifiers and long-term schedules.
Prized events don't get displayed anywhere, although we're looking to change that soon!
