Community Highlights
What kind of League of Legends players do you despise?
by sephiroth70001
Feeders, Teemo users, insta-lockers and more — these types of League of Legends gamers are among the most despised. Chime in with what type of LoL player you wish to stay away from.

Introduce yourself! by LinkSmash
Raptr newbies and old-timers alike, don’t be a stranger — intro yourself to the Raptr community and let us know what you’re playing!

What game has made you cry? by Squidward
Admit it — you’ve cried at least once within your gaming lifetime. Join the hugging circle and talk about the games that have made you cry.

What DC comic characters do you want to see in Injustice? by Omega2120
Raptr user Omega2120 wants to know, if you were given the choice, which three comic book characters would you like to see in Injustice: Gods Among Us? Personally I’d love to see Red Hood, Scarecrow, and Plastic Man.

Do you hate the term ‘girl gamer’ or ‘gamer girl?’ by KoRnyGx
“We are gamers — that’s it.” Raptr user KoRnyGx finds it silly that female gamers are often dubbed “girl gamers” and wishes to try to change that. How do you feel about the labels of female and male gamers?

Should Microsoft remove gold and silver subscriptions? by Great Identity
Microsoft’s reveal event is just around the corner (May 21st!) and many are voicing what they want, don’t want, and need for the next generation console. Raptr user Great Identity wants online capabilities for the Xbox 720 to be free like Sony’s PSN, but doubts it will happen. What do you think? Should Microsoft remove gold and silver subscriptions or will the platform fail without them?
