    I took these photos in 2004 at the ripe old age of 19. I had decided one day that I wanted to capture a memory or the spirit of a time and place or something. I don’t remember. I went out and bought a cheap disposable camera and shot these. These shots are  inevitably what got me into shooting with film and led me to buy my Nikon N55. Today I got the negatives put on cd and this shit is a trip down memory lane for sure.

OB52 Knee-Jerk
  • At first I complained about him getting 400 base speed pre-release, but Zhin feels rather underwhelming to play against.  Counter stopping Shoulder Charge/Pounce is pretty cool.  I’m a little “ehh” on him being able to actually counter the explosive wave of Time Bomb, but if you’re using it right he won’t even be able to hit you with the counter.
  • The scoreboard overhaul is terrible.  It’s too tight and cluttered.  If I wanted K/D/A, I’d check my History in my Profile or go to one of the ELO sites I never use.  "Score" should be reserved for Elims, Deaths, Solo Kills, and Streak.  If the Loadouts/Itemization tab did K/D/A instead of Score, fine.  I hope this gets rolled back by OB53 at the latest.
  • Champions are still too small and oddly rotated on weird angles in select and MVP screens.  I really want them to make the champions be the focus/emphasis and not the pedestals.
  • Onslaught is rad.  I hope they bring in a few new maps rather than just recycling Survival maps.
  • Skins are OK.  I want the Ying set, though I’m low on crystals at the moment.  Reducing the price on the weapons chest was a good move.  Still wish they’d hit the oldest champs with Mastery skins in one huge sweep on the first wave, then move through the rest of the roster.
  • The “Sewer” map is pretty awesome.  I want to see it come to completion.  Rift from OB51, too.
