As many have noted, the rapid growth of esports have been accompanied by a variety of "growing pains." Here are the most awkward of them. Believe it or not, there was a time when Heroes of Newerth was a legitimate rival to League of Legends... for all of three minutes in the late 2000s. Still though, at least it gave us this amazingly poorly produced team intro segment set in a darkened middle school gymnasiumKeep an eye out for future Alliance support Simon "Handsken" Haag.
On Oct. 30, after months of speculation, Riot Games announced a new format for the EU LCS for 2018. With an increased stipend, elimination of mid-season relegation and the promise of permanent partnerships in 2019, the new format appears to many as a much needed remedy for a region in turmoil. Let’s get this out of the way: It's been a tough couple of years for European League of Legends.
Luis "Peacemaker" Tadeu has officially joined Heroic as the team's interim coach. "Needless to say, I am very happy we have Luis on board the Heroic team as an interim coach," RFRSH sports director Kasper Hvidt said in a statement. "He brings a lot experience, he is very thorough, enthusiastic and really hardworking and those are skills weâ€™re always looking for. I look forward to working with Luis and I know the players do too."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
