LoL’s Veigar vs Final Fantasy Vivi/Black Mage

So today was one of those days where I felt “adventurous” and wanted to try something new.  Unlike some of you, that think running a marathon, rock climbing, purchase a new video, or ordering from a new Chinese Restaurant is considered adventurous.  For me, being adventurous was taking a break from work and trying a League of Legends character that I have never played with.  Today, the new character of choice was Veigar.

“Being Adventurous”

I don’t know what caused this sudden urge to branch out.  Might have been the result of seeing an opposing Veigar go 24-3 and 2 hit kill me every time.  Whatever the reason, I bought this character and played a few games.  It saddens me to admit this, but I sucked.  It wasn’t as bad as some of my other new characters but not as good as I expected.  My teammates on the other hand were the typical, lovely, charming, and supportive team members that the LoL community is known for… (gag)  Needless to say, my feelings were hurt, caused me to rage quit, and “forced” me to throw a half open beer can across the room.

After everything was cleaned up and came back to my senses, I took a step back and admired the Veigar character.   I tried that positive visualization crap but became even more frustrated with what/who I saw… Vivi from Final Fantasy.

You can’t tell me Veigar doesn’t look like Vivi!

Being a die hard Final Fantasy fan, I grew up with the original black mage.  From Final Fantasy 1 with the original black mage all the way up to Lulu from FFX.   Yes, Lulu technically doesn’t look like Veigar, but whatever, she was still a bad ass mage from the last Final Fantasy game I played.  Anyway, I am thinking about writing to Riot and demanding they change the default skin.  They can keep Veigar as a leprechaun look a like, but don’t insult the FF series and Square Enix by having Veigar suck so much in the League of Legends.  I have attached a few more images for comparison and look forward to future comments.

  1. After I originally commented I seem to have
    clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is
    added I receive four emails with the same comment. There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

  2. lol. I hated Veigar the first time I played him too. It just takes practice to get a champion down. I don’t main him, but I love him in ARAM. Killing AP champs with just his ultimate is too fun
