Welcome to CupcakeTrap’s LoL musings. I’m no pro player, but I do like to crunch numbers and theorycraft, and I aim to translate this work into simple, convenient writeups and graphics.
Here is a menu of my current offerings:
Season 3 Gold Income
This writeup briefly explains how much gold different champions have to work with in Season 3.
Season 3 Masteries Valuation Infographic and Writeup
This writeup, which includes a simple infographic, attempts to pin a per-point gold value on the Season 3 Masteries. This requires some simplifications and approximations, and of course gold valuation is an inherently limited metric, but I find it useful since so many Masteries do simply give you stats that you’d otherwise buy in the shop.
Season 3 Sample Mastery Builds
This uses the writeup mentioned above to construct and value a few sample builds, like “21 Offense (Mages)”.
How Would 5 Bots Fare In Solo Queue?
Well? Aren’t you curious?

This is from my last game of Season 2. It’s one of my favorite LoL moments ever. HOW DOES IT FEEL, DARIUS? HOW DOES IT FEEL?
Guide To Installing A Spider-Free Elise Custom Skin (Link to LoL Forum Thread)
Thanks go to Waldgeist for making this custom skin. As a custom skin, it’s installed locally. It changes only how Elises appear on your own monitor; nobody else’s experience is affected.
Because “Nami’s Enforcers” is not the best.
I recently (mid-March 2013) launched a Factions system, featuring four starting factions chosen by community poll: Demacia, Ionia, Noxus, and Piltover. Matches are happening all the time, mostly organized through the Factions in-game chat room. Come join!
