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.

This is exactly why ranked is such a gigantic shitshow at the end of the season.

indeed. Particularly because while my rank may have soft reset, my MMR is probably quite a bit better than I am. One of the two non-ARAMs I've played this year was as Zito's ADC, and I think he may have JUST constrained himself from asking whether I was a complete idiot. To be fair, even when I played a lot, I was not a good ADC.

But whatever, I'm going to figure out these masteries runes before I do anything.

in my experience end of season is filled with elo boosters and ragers

runes are usually something like:

Keystone - Precision
Press the Attack (my name is Lucian and I attack twice) - Fleetwork (sustain, MS) - Lethal Tempo (wearing carry pants)
Overheal - Triumph. The choice is mostly based on whether you're a bork user or stormrazor user. pros apparently use whatever they chose last game, because there's no logic or sense based on their choice.
Alacrity. The base bonus without takedowns is undeniably good. Banking on a rune for tenacity is a bad idea unless you're jungling and can expect a good KP.
Coup de Grace>Cut down. The logic here is that cut down sucks in lane, and ending a kill is better than somebody getting blasted with a final rotation of skills before the kill goes down. Cut down with stormrazor is probably the best this rune will ever be due to the frontloaded damage of the item. Last Stand is a Tryndamere rune. I've used it in ARAM as Kindred before at least? Nobody uses it in real games though

secondary (anything goes, almost)
Inspiration is good for the raw stats, but with the stopwatch nerf it isn't worth it for ADC anymore.
Domination is probably underrated, but it's hard to justify it over other trees. Off the top of my head Cheap Shot + Ravenous Hunter on Ashe should be really good, which I base solely on the insane cheap shot numbers I get as Zyra. Ghost poro can protect from ganks, which is good if you're the only naturally pushing lane. Ravenous hunter is pretty decent, 8+40=48MS. Downside especially for Ashe: her base HP sucks compared to other ADs. I laned with an Ashe the other day against a Jhin, and the power creep was real.
Resolve is the second most used by top players. Bone plating+Chrysalis for the level 1 and free stats later on, or Bone plating + Second wind if your shit is going to be pushed in all game. This is really just a 1v9 secondary
Sorcery. Most used by just about everyone. Pros usually go Absolute Focus / Gathering storm, everybody that isn't a pro probably benefits more from Celerity over Absolute Focus. There's a small but real lv1 disadvantage if you go celerity, though. Varus goes manaflow band with a q max. I usually roleplay as an ADC instead of a caster and use the more reliable E max, but hey, pros go manaflow regardless of what they max, so it must be good. 3 different KR mids recently got autofilled to bot and all of them went comet with a Q max, so you don't need to right click as Varus to win in KR challenger.

I'm in http://na.op.gg/summoner/champions/userName=Lycanfire

I can't seem to figure out how to configure my headset to use my headphones for output while using the headset for input without also using my headset for output. I'd prefer not to hear the game in worse quality than a 90s phone call, so let me know if voice is a deal breaker.

Cut off seems to be tomorrow with the games being played through the weekend.

I'm either playing it or not playing it. I care about winning but I won't expect to.

Can we get 5 by tomorrow so we can assign roles? If I'm outside of bot lane, I need to spam a few games to get the rust off. We get subs though, so we can have more than 5 and sit people out if they have rl or need a break.

I’m open to clash. Can do any role but top, preference is probably neutral besides not really wanting to play lots of support. Probably win most as bot but that’s mostly heimerdinger abuse.

Enemy teams get to scout you for five minutes before pick and bans, so you need more than one champ

Most valuable roles rn

-Jungle
-Top
-Mid

In about that order

I suppose I could bot with Psyche and if he draws a Heimer ban we can switch roles, but he should really put some time into a similar hero like Swain before the weekend.

What do you play Reck?

mmm i know a lot of adcs too don’t worry, and i can play plenty other roles if bot’s not best. Have a relatively big champ pool mid for instance.

I think we need a team ready by 6PM PST or just over two hours from now in order to be 'in'.

I'm guessing we're 'out'.

If we get a fifth we can still q as 5 so we have an idea of what a team would be like next time.

best part of playing zyra is that you can do this and solo carry if the person playing bot is an asshole
