League of Legends: The New Thread

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Camille is also a fairly aggressive dive champion.

Panzer's assessment is pretty spot on here.

Shyvana is one of those champions where most fights are unfair in her favor by virtue of the fact she's shyvana.
don't you feel silly now?

I can't help you with aesthetics or with what champions speak to you and which don't; I can only tell you how I think is the best way to win and that is to be as versatile and self-sufficient as possible without having to rely on incredibly high execution. Ivern, to me, is not self-sufficient. I can not speak to his versatility because I have never played him and am not nearly as familiar with him as you are.

So The Art of League (of Quas and Jiji fame) exposed 1000s of customer emails in the CC field and as a result gave everyone involved all their ebooks free.

I didn't notice until the second email. Great gesture.

the new premade team competitions sounds pretty neat as long as they figure out a way to elo band it correctly.

They're using mobile phone numbers tied to accounts to prevent smurfing in Clash, it seems. And knowing the way riot works, it's probably ALSO a beta test to require them for ranked to prevent smurfing.

They don't want high elo guys ruining their esports simulation mode and taking all the prizes, especially because you're gonna have to put in money/blue dust in order to participate.

Smurfing in solo Q fine, Smurfing in Clash not fine, basically.

In the video that released today about 2017 and plans for 2018, yes.

Well thankfully having just watched that video, it doesn't sound like something that is going to come into actual ranked, and seems solely pointed at the clash mode.

CSGO has a thing where they make you put in your phone number to play a certain game mode, I believe.

Ok so I am finding that Jungle Alistar is stupid fun at the moment. I run Green/Red and just gank all game long. It feels very much like the old roam support, except I get the benefit of jungle gold.

I don't know if its that running lots of ganks is particularly effective at my ELO (Which I presume it is) or if it is actually decent, but it is fun as hell.

Also my baby (AP Varus) feels pretty deece with the adaptive damage helping with early game trades that swaps to AP later.

Ezreal seems broke. If I go even/minorly behind in lane with Klepto I feel like I should win the game.

Finding Assassins to be pretty cray atm tho.
I sit with Kison.

That's not how he meant. He has the option to play more than2, he just doesn't know how.

For jungle Ali

I run aftershock, the summoner tenacity thing (steals, ganking), the bonus to both defences, revitalise. Then I go red with the bonus penetration after dash and ghost poro..

Huh, they nerfed the worst matchups for mid shyvana, plus the sorcery nerfs matter less to me than to everyone else.
Gotta start banning yasuo again though.

The personalized year in review thing is pretty cool, namely because it just showed up after a game and I wasn't expecting it.
Apparently Maestro and I have good synergy since I have the highest win rate with him. Second only to my Win Rate with Lux.
