Launched on July 20, the Arena game mode in League of Legends exploded in popularity, becoming one of the more successful playlists enjoyed by many fans.

Players could select their favorite champions in Arena and face off in 2v2v2v2 matches without the nuances of lanes and warding. Over the months, it has been a fun alternative for newcomers and veterans of the MOBA title.

Unfortunately, Riot Games will be removing the game mode on Aug. 28. The devs confirmed it was only available as a limited-time playlist for the summer. That said, one dev on the team has hinted that discussions are going on internally to bring back Arena mode soon.

Is Arena mode coming back to ‘League of Legends’?

On a Reddit thread about the eventual closure of Arena, a Riot Games developer responded to a player upset to see the mode disappear. They teased that fans “haven’t seen the last of Arena” in League of Legends.

“The team is discussing the future plans for the mode and none of the options on the table involve abandoning it,” they continued. “Brightmoon and Meddler will have a dev update soon that includes what the next steps are.”

It’s unclear when the Arena game mode will come back, though the next update will likely shine a light on its future implementation in League of Legends — whether as another limited-time offering or a permanent mode.

Could the future Arena mode allow you to create custom games?

On the Arena FAQ published by Riot Games, the developers had confirmed players couldn’t make custom Arena games when the mode launched in July. However, the team considered adding such an option down the line.

At the time, the devs aimed “on getting Arena ready to launch for the Soul Fighter event,” focusing instead on “building out the game” rather than additional features like custom lobbies. Still, the devs clarified custom games might get implemented if Arena ever returned.

This sentiment also aligns with whether or not Arena would become a permanent game mode should it come back. Player feedback and how Riot Games allocates resources to development will determine much of Arena’s future.

For now, players should keep an eye out for coming updates and keep an open mind so as not to be disappointed with what steps Riot makes next for the mode.

Alex and Cole’s Rivalry Explained in My Life With the Walter Boys

Published

on

Alex and Cole have an ongoing rivalry for nearly the entire series of ‘My Life With the Walter Boys.’ These two girls have a lot to do with it.

Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for My Life With the Walter Boys

The Gist:

  • Alex and Cole have this ongoing feud because Alex thinks Cole “stole” his first girlfriend, Paige.
  • Turns out, Paige came onto Cole, making it look like he was the one who initiated the unexpected hookup.
  • The feud continues after Alex starts dating Jackie because he thinks Cole is going to try and steal her too.

If you have siblings, then you’re probably familiar with the unspoken rule that says it goes against all things moral to date your sibling’s current or former partner. This rule is also etched in the friend code. The feud between Alex (Ashby Gentry) and Cole Walter (Noah LaLonde) in the new Netflix teen drama series My Life With the Walter Boys seems to stem from this very rule being broken. We should point out, however, that the operative word is seems.

While there’s a lot of drama in the series that centers around love, loss, and heartache, Cole and Alex’s rivalry serves as a major plot point worth exploring. So, let’s dig into why the tension between Alex and Cole is so thick throughout the show we could cut it with a knife.

Alex and Cole’s rivalry started after Cole kissed Alex’s first girlfriend — but wait, we can explain.

Despite how smitten Alex is with Jackie (Nikki Rodriguez), she isn’t his first “love.” In fact, Alex previously dated Paige, a blondish-brunette beauty with a whole lotta attitude! We learn in Episode 6 that Alex and Paige were an item, that is, until Cole came back into the picture.

Apparently, during Paige’s farewell-to-summer party (which was thrown before Jackie arrived in Colorado), Alex stepped away from Paige to go play pool (the two were dating at the time). Upon his return, he was unpleasantly surprised to find his girlfriend making out with Cole. It’s worth noting that the party was a major hit and practically the entire school was in attendance. Not a good look for Alex!

It was after the hookup that Alex and Cole’s rivalry really started.

Cole didn’t steal Paige from Alex — she initiated the kiss.

While Cole played the ultimate bad boy really well at the beginning of the series, he mellows out toward the end, and that’s when we learn the truth behind his and Paige’s hookup. During one of their heart-to-heart moments, Cole admits to Jackie that he had been away (he was rehabbing his leg in Colorado Springs) before Paige’s party and didn’t know she and Alex were dating.

After he arrived at the party, he said Paige came onto him and obviously, he didn’t stop her. That’s because he didn’t know he was violating the sibling code. He also admits to Jackie that he would have never broken his brother’s heart intentionally. What further leads us to believe that Paige is the instigator behind Cole and Alex’s feud is when she mentions to her friend that nobody turns down Cole and that Alex should know this.

Alex and Cole’s feud continues after Jackie comes into the picture.

When Jackie arrives at the Walters’ house, it’s clear Alex and Cole are interested in her. Fortunately, for Alex, he makes the first move and wins her over. But that doesn’t mean Cole is completely cut out of the picture. Being the type of guy that he is, Cole manages to find multiple opportunities to spend time with Jackie, and it makes Alex jealous (and a bit nervous).

Because Cole is known for his good looks and ability to “steal” girlfriends, Alex can’t stand when he and Jackie are around each other, or forced to spend time together (we’re referencing the time they were grounded and when they broke down in the middle of nowhere after Jackie’s interview).

While Alex and Cole’s rivalry pretty much lasts the entire show, they make amends towards the end and seem to be in a much better place. However, we aren’t sure the repairing of their brother bonds will last once Alex learns Jackie kissed Cole in the final episode. Unless there is a Season 2, the world may never know.

Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for My Life With the Walter Boys.

The Gist:

  • Jackie Howard, a 15-year-old from New York, moves to Colorado after her parents and sister are killed in a tragic accident.
  • Jackie moves in with the Walters, and it’s clear a connection develops between her and two brothers, Cole and Alex.
  • Although Jackie and Alex wind up dating, the chemistry between her and Cole lingers.

My Life With the Walter Boys is the newest addition to Netflix’s lineup of teen dramas. Speaking of drama, the show features an unspoken love triangle between Jackie Howard (Nikki Rodriguez) and two brothers, Alex Walter (Ashby Gentry) and the irresistible Cole Walter (Noah LaLonde). While the chemistry between Jackie and Cole is obvious, she initially takes the safe route by starting to date Alex in Episode 5.

But something tells us that isn’t the end for Jackie and Cole. The connection between them stands out like a sore thumb the entire season. So, does Jackie ultimately end up with Alex or Cole?

Jackie and Alex begin dating in Episode 5 after they share a kiss in the barn.

There are plenty of moments throughout My Life With the Walter Boys Season 1 that lead up to Jackie and Alex dating. Alex clearly shows interest in the good girl from New York from the get-go but it takes him five long episodes before he finally makes a move.

Alex first scores major cool points after introducing Jackie to the loft, a place he often goes to when he needs an escape from his rowdy brothers. Recording her height on the wall (alongside his siblings’) added a few more. But it was after finding a Colorado version of Manhattanhenge that really sealed the deal.

During Thanksgiving, Jackie’s Uncle Richard (Alex Quijano) describes to the Walter family a place in Manhattan where the sun aligns perfectly with the Manhattan street grid. The result — an explosion of rays shooting in all directions. It was something Jackie’s mother loved and obviously, something that means a lot to her.

So, naturally, Alex’s ability to find a place that even slightly reminds Jackie of her life in New York serves well for the less popular Walter boy. And boy does it because, by the end of Episode 5, Jackie and Alex share a romantic kiss in the barn after returning from “Manhattanhenge” and they start dating. And it all plays out right in front of Cole (who is jealous).

And that brings us to Jackie and Cole’s relationship.

Do Jackie and Cole ever date in ‘My Life With the Walter Boys’?

Despite how frustrated Jackie appears to be with Cole, the connection between the two is evident and we’re sure you’ll notice it too. Before Alex and Jackie become an item, she and Cole have a “moment” during their visit to the lake.

Aside from their heart-to-heart (which seems to happen often throughout the show), their flirtatious teasing session also assures viewers there is an undeniable connection between the two teens. We also can’t forget the time they almost kissed during an exciting game of Truth or Dare.

Cole’s move to repair Jackie’s teapot (which was given to her by her now-deceased sister Lucy) also shows that Cole is really into Jackie, or New York as he likes to call her.

Article continues below advertisement

Although it took the entire season for the heartthrob and former jock, who is giving us young Leonardo DiCaprio vibes, to return the teapot to Jackie, it was well worth the wait. After all, it was Cole’s thoughtful gesture, something he isn’t really known for doing, that lured Jackie to him so they could finally share a steamy kiss. Let’s be honest, we all wanted it to happen!

Article continues below advertisement

While there were plenty of opportunities for Jackie and Cole to connect, it was his transition from being a “bad boy” that likely captured her heart (that, and him telling her he can’t not want her).

Jackie doesn’t choose either one of the Walter boys at the end of Season 1. While she was technically dating Alex when she kissed Cole in Episode 10, she abruptly left Colorado with Uncle Richard the following morning to return to New York. Sadly, Jackie didn’t address where she and Alex stand or what her kiss with Cole meant.

Perhaps this sets the scene for a Season 2? Fans will just have to wait and see what happens.

What Happened to Cam Newton? Reason He’s MIA Right Now

Published

Fans certainly noticed when Cam Newton was no longer on the field. He shared the reason behind his absence and a glimpse into teams’ decision-making.

The Gist:

  • Cam Newton said that NFL teams aren’t interested in him because of his hair.
  • He wasn’t drafted to another team when his one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers ended.
  • There was talk about Cam rejoining the Panthers in 2022 as the backup quarterback, but that didn’t end up happening.

While football players bow out or retire from the sport every year, fans weren’t expecting Cam Newton to disappear from the NFL. However, after his one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers ended, he wasn’t drafted back onto another team.

There has been a lot of speculation about what has kept Cam away, but he claimed that staying away isn’t his choice. He has pointed the blame at something else in the league.

What happened to Cam Newton?

According to Cam, it isn’t his ability that holding him back — instead, it’s his hair. In recent years, Cam has grown his hair out to be rather long and he claimed that teams aren’t happy with that decision. He also implied they could just be using that as an excuse.

“People have hinted towards to say like, ‘Cam, we want you to go back to the 2015 clean-cut Cam. But that was a different me. Right now, where I’m at, it’s about embracing who I am,” he told Josina Anderson on her Undefined podcast.

Also, Cam said that people implied his new look could be “scary,” he told Bleacher Report. “And I would say, ‘Yo, like I’m not going to name names, but there [are] other quarterbacks that [are] in the league that don’t look like me, but they got [have] long hair. They don’t scare them, do they?’” he explained.

“So, we can go tit for tat, tat for tit with it. But I would just turn and nod to that and say, ‘That’s not the reason why I’m not in the NFL,’” Cam admitted. So, the real reason for his absence seems to be ambiguous … even with the chance that it could be his hair after all.

Cam said that there were conversations surrounding him returning to the Panthers for 2022, but nothing came to fruition. He was reportedly asked to be backup for Sam Darnold, which Cam was OK with as long as he was given a chance to “prove himself.”

“It was small talk,” Cam told Dan Patrick, according to MCNC Charlotte. “It was the Panthers trying to get me back and they didn’t know. At that specific time, Sam Darnold was there.”

“Every situation I’ve been in, even with New England and going back to Carolina, I never had an offseason,” Cam added. “That kind of capped my mental to understand the offense as a whole and the philosophical approach to why the offensive coordinator is calling certain kinds of plays.”

Cam admitted that a variety of teams failed to reach out to him, including Washington. For those teams, he was willing to take a backseat on the roster, but he found that even his former mentors weren’t reaching out to offer him any help.

Is Cam Newton still playing football?

While Cam isn’t signed to a professional team as of this writing, he does still stay involved in football. He played in Auburn University’s “Pro Day,” his alma mater, in early 2023, according to the NFL. Otherwise, the once-mighty player isn’t active in the sport.
