League of Politics: GOP vs. DEM

This was a joint project between myself and Austen Goslin (known as AustenGoslin on The Rift Herald and @AustenG on Twitter). This is just as much his post as it is mine.

Later in 2016, the Democrats and the Republicans will go head to head in a battle for the Presidency of the United States of America. But what if they took a more civilized approach, and battle it out on Summoner’s Rift? We think the teams would look something like this…

Hold on, like this support okay, no good you know, I gave him the name. This Christie kid, get gud, okay. Somebody has to get me a bigger mouse. And that’s another thing. The supports you know, the supports in this country. Look folks, Riot gave me this support, and I think that it is important that someone says this. So I’m going to say this. ‘Riot please.’ So. Okay. Riot is, they’re ruining me, you know. Ruining me, okay. Like these items, these attack damage items. They’re garbage, okay. Garbage. And look, if I worked at Riot, we would have good items for ADCs. We would have all the best items. The best. With the global landscape the way it is now, NA just doesn’t have good supports anymore. We need to make supports great again. Someone needs to get me a bigger mouse, I’m telling you.”
