New Age of Mythology Expansion Brings Good and Bad News

Good news, After a long 12 year wait, Age of Mythology fans will finally receive a new expansion! It’s called Tale of the Dragon, and set to be released on the 28th of January, 2016.

I myself, being Chinese, is extra excited that the new expansion focuses on the Chinese pantheon. Having loved Age of Mythology when it was first released, back when I was in primary school.

Note:  Please remember that these players only represent a minority of the people in Asian countries. Imagine the social outcasts and neckbeard basement dweller types, or just generally disconnected rich people.

LPL and the CSL, the demented connection, it’a nationwide problem

The poorly name Tencent League of Legends Pro League (LPL) in China is famous for it’s extravagant spending, oddly named teams and signing of Korean pros as. It’s almost a complete replication of the other types of sports and entertainment leagues that exist in China.

The premier association football competition of China is the Chinese Super League (CSL), I like to think the ‘super’ relates to the cash. It’s famous for it’s extravagant spending, oddly named clubs and signings of Brazilians. Sound familiar?
