Just a mockup of what the QWER + LoL kit would be like?

QWER kit : for MOBA players(Dota/LoL/HoN). QWER + "gg" keys
LoL kit : QWER kit + D and F spells + VGB keys

Edit:

Multicolor kit

You know how some people get WASD keys with arrows printed on them?

Why not get arrow keys that have WASD printed on them?

Genius! Maybe upvotes and downvotes for arrow keys? Or upvotes for capslock and downvotes for escape?

Not that I know of, I dont' think we have permission. I actually tried to email to "notch". == Was the only email I could find on minecraft site.

If someone wants to try again that would be cool.

Yeah sure. I thought of doing some. But I haven't played any of the diablos, so I'm unfamiliar with most of the game. If anyone has some ideas I can see what I can do.

:gasp:

You should play Diablo2 for sure!

The Diablo title is pretty iconic, along with the D3 Diablo Skull and Tyrael.
I'm not sure what would work amazing.
Anyone else have suggestions?

Dyesub maybe? I'll see later when I'm back home, gotta go shopping for a present for friend's birthday.

I Think I can do the tyreal wings, but not sure about the skill. I think highly possible.

I know I really should of played Diablo. But I was young and didn't know good games from bad. I haven't played HL2...SC1...War3(not until I got into dota).....Yeah I missed a lot.

I played so much SC1 that I burnt out a CDROM drive back when it was a newish game.

I distinctly remember someone having a Diablo skull icon that would be good to doubleshot.
Shall have to hunt for it when I get the chance.
