Enlarge / Not everyone can be Heroes of the Storm champions like Cloud 9 were at BlizzCon 2015, but MOBAs are insanely competitive for pros and amateurs alike. Not quite an RPG, not quite an RTS, MOBAs are fierce, fast games that combine swift fingers, strategic thinking, and uproarious bursts of skill. Two teams of five players duke it out to destroy each other's base with the assistance of computer-controlled units that march forward along set paths, or lanes, as the terminology has it. It's a simple concept that allows for a huge amount of depth, and when two teams are in full flow, firing on every cylinder, it's a joy to watch and play. But there's a precipitous learning curve at every level of skill, and it can just as easily become an exercise in frustration and self-flagellation, especially if your teammates aren't up to snuff—or if you're the rube but you don't know it.

Hong Kongs Eastern Long Lions won the Asean Basketball League in their debut season in the competition as they saw off Singapore Slingers on Sunday night. Eastern took a thrilling double-overtime game 82-80 at Singapores Sports Hub to clinch the series 3-1. Americans Josh Boone, Marcus Elliott and Tyler Lamb combined to score 24 of Easterns final 26 points to drive them over the finish line. I think the only thing that kept us going was how close we are as a group....

The hometown trio for Saturday’s biggest boxing show in Leicester for nearly 25 years believe this is just the start for the city’s reintroduction to the sport. CJ Challenger, Jahmaine Smyle and Lyon Woodstock are beyond excited to be part of this weekend’s show at the Leicester Arena. Four title fights, plus a final eliminator for world honours, will take place in front of a captivated audience along with BT Sport and BoxNation viewers. It’s the biggest thing to happen boxing-wise in Leicester since September 1993, when Chris Pyatt defended the WBO world middleweight title at the now-demolished Granby Halls. Smyle defends his English super middleweight title against the unbeaten Daryll Williams over 10 rounds, with his manager Clifton Mitchell having choice words for the challenger. Woodstock goes for the vacant Midlands super featherweight crown against the former champion Paul Holt, also set for 10.

Craig Shakespeare’s side trail 1-0 from first leg and need at least a goalWe must enjoy … we might never be here again, says Christian Fuchs To put into perspective the size of the task facing Leicester City, Atlético Madrid have eliminated Bayern Munich, Barcelona (twice), Chelsea, Milan, Bayer Leverkusen (twice) and PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League across the past three years. Diego Simeone’s team have reached two finals since 2014 and the only club to have got the better of them outside of the group stage during that period is Real Madrid. Leicester, in short, have got their work cut out and it will take something truly special to turn this Champions League quarter-final around, bearing in mind Atlético go into the game with a 1-0 lead, courtesy of Antoine Griezmann’s contentious penalty in Madrid, and the fact that the Spanish club have gone through in the last 16 European ties in which they have won the first leg.

But for the first time, they’ll be thinking about things. Continue reading...
