    I don't really play many tanks (besides singed, but I got sick of playing him all the time) so this will be quite a change.

    Anyone have any recommendations towards builds?

    So far I have this:

    1. Doran's Butt (shield)
    2. Ninja Tabai
    3. Heart of Gold
    4. Thornmail
    5. Randuin's/Aegis?
    6. Frozen Heart

    After that, if there's even a chance to get more, I'll go for Guardian or Force of Nature.

    For his abilities, priority goes like W>E>R>Q? I tend to put a point in Q or E first, then max out W and E, then finish up Q.

    Instead of rushing to Thornmail/Randuin, just stack triple hearts of gold. It'll give you a decent amount of income as well as health and armor. Then from there build what the other team has. Physical? THornmail/Sunfire. Magical? Banshees/Force O nature.

    And don't forget to build your boots based on what the enemy team is. Which most of the time means Merc Treads.

    Jesus christ, slice. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

    "Guys, should I build Tabi or Merc treads?"

    It feels like I should get Mejiahs (or however it is spelled) on Karthus because of his ult, but I don't know where to fit it in.

    Also, I keep thinking I want to try a Karthus with revive someday. Being able to fight, die + keep spamming Q for 8 seconds, then hit revive and cast his Ult would be delicious.

    But then I'd be that guy that took revive....

    Main items are usually a tier-3 item. (That is, it takes another built item to build it.) I will usually build the tier-2 item that leads to the tier-3 item, then get Soulstealer, then get the tier-3 item.

    Now with RoA that gets screwed up a little, because both are over-time items. Getting Soulstealer of RoA basically means you are gambling that you will kill more than you will be killed in the immediate future. If you are confident of that, build Soulstealer. Otherwise get RoA first.

    If at any time you are not confident about getting kills and not dying, do not buy a snowball item. It's just a waste of money, as you generally need 3-4 stacks consistently on it in order to make it worthwhile.

    why not?

    why can't it look a player's leaves?

    well, just because a person has a leave doesn't mean they will leave in this particular game. you never know how a person will act in that game unless they have like a ridiculous amount of leaves. it is all dependent on what happens during the game. what would they do if they calculated a person's leave chance was high? pair him with other leavers?

    If someone has leaves they should just get thrown into a sort of 'bitch queue' with other players that have accumulated leaves. It wouldn't be hard to query the frequency that a player is leaving matchs and if they frequently or are on a streak of leaving then they get screwed accordingly. Not being able to play ranked games until 30 only hurts people that don't have a ton of time to play.

    They should just lower the amount of experience it takes to get to 30, by a lot in my opinion. As it stands it takes a ridiculous amount of time to reach 30.

    I got to 30 in under 2 months.

    Not that hard/long.

    do you know roughly how many games played it took you to get to 30?

    So... is Karthus really OP or did I finally find a character I do well with?

    I maintain quite good kill/death ratios (my games have been 8:5:1, 17:11:13, 9:4:11, 6:3:8, and 13:6:13). All but one of those is positive kill/death, and most have more kills than I get per game with other chars.

    But then I thought, kills don't measure skill if you're letting your team lose. But so far, I've been 4:2 wins/losses with him.

    So then I thought, maybe I don't contribute to team-fights. But I think that I do a ton of useful stuff in team fights, from the crazy aoe damage to the snaring wall.

    And naturally, I'm quite a good creep killer.

    So now I'm wondering whether I can get excited, pat myself on the back, and get ready to spend 6300 IP, or if I'm just playing a cheap OP character (and if so, why do I see so few of them)?

    just play the character, especially if you're digging him and are performing well.

    you seemed to be liking the character a bunch last night, plus you were killin mans left and right.

    I think once you get down his wall of butts, you'll become a pretty solid Karthus.

    Just stick with him and I'll stick with Rammus and we will be happy mans

    You'll benefit much much much much much much more from 35% reduction on CC effects than you will from the +6 damage Ninja Tabi gives you. The dodge is nice of course but against the majority of team compositions you'll want Treads as a tank because they help against most physical and all magical heroes.

    He benefits your team more if he's not cc'ed however. You don't usually get the treads for the MR, but for the CC reduction. The MR is just a side benefit.

    I have nothing to say other than this: Any system that encourages stat-whoring and last-hitting is going to be extremely bad for this game at a team level. If you think solo queue is bad now, just wait until last-hit hero killing is persistently rewarded. (ELO is forever; extra gold gain is only for that game.)

    Here's an example of how even your expanded system is broken: What about Soraka players? They would be massively punished, because she generally has zero killing power for minions, heroes, or towers. So now you add in health healed.

    OK, well what about Shen? His main purpose is to actually get attacked. So add damage taken as a stat?

    The point is that this game is more complicated than a bunch of isolated stats can describe. Team composition and interaction are so important in this game, and that's simply not something you can quantify with individual per-champion statistics.

    Pretty much the exact reasons the devs have stated such a system would not work and is not being implemented. I think pulling the 20s out of ranked will be a big improvement to the experience for those of us who are 30. There's nothing wrong with normal games.

    edit: Minimum range on projectiles is a cool idea. The targetting circle could become a donut around you and would help to stop heimer from just stunning you at point blank, and proceeding to set up for another. Could be a neat theme for another hero as well.

    Fellhand: Sorry, but I was referring to an enemy Heimer just paving his way through our towers.

    As for coordinating ganks on Heimer: It's pretty difficult to coordinate anything amongst pubbies, and with blind pick the only option for normal games it often comes down to random chance that you'll have the team composition necessary to actually be effective against a competent Heimer.

    Sorry, but I had just lost 5 games in a row before my previous post...all losing to teams that had Heimer. Then of course the game I just played had Heimer on my team, wherein we proceeded to stomp the hell out of the enemy team.

    He benefits your team more if he's not cc'ed however. You don't usually get the treads for the MR, but for the CC reduction. The MR is just a side benefit.

    I'm amazed that no one has brought up the obvious fact that getting both Thornmail and Ninja Tabi is basically wasting money. Either you want to get hit or you don't; pick one and go.

    Also, I would recommend not getting Thornmail unless they have a serious auto-attack DPS on their team. Like Tristana or Yi or Jax. Otherwise that 2000YordleBux can be better spent on many other things.

    I don't know what it is about Master Yi, but whenever a Yi player is terrible they're SO TERRIBLE it's not even comparable to being terrible with any other champ.

    Yea but Rammus benefits greatly with more armor + dodge, especially the armor since more armor for him = more damage and of course ARMOR.

    I duno treads are cool and all, but I almost never use them. Unless the whole enemy team is magic.

    He benefits your team more if he's not cc'ed however. You don't usually get the treads for the MR, but for the CC reduction. The MR is just a side benefit.

    I'm amazed that no one has brought up the obvious fact that getting both Thornmail and Ninja Tabi is basically wasting money. Either you want to get hit or you don't; pick one and go.

    Also, I would recommend not getting Thornmail unless they have a serious auto-attack DPS on their team. Like Tristana or Yi or Jax. Otherwise that 2000YordleBux can be better spent on many other things.

    I believe thornmail will ALWAYS proc its damage based on the damage the attacking champion would have done had you been hit and had 0 armor. In other words, you will reflect back the same amount of damage regardless of your armor or dodge rating. A miss will still reflect damage back to the attacker.

    I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS - It's just the word on the street.

    plus there is no reason why normal mode can't be draftban as well

    in my mind, at least

    or just draft, don't complicate it with banning if you want

    anything except blind pick

    Yeah, this is pretty much the issue.

    Having draft ban as an option would be great so that way the only people who get to experience the Soraka/Heimer hell games are the people who wish to do so (and presumably have the two on their team as well).

    Yeah that sounds about right. I've seen my thornmail damage minions for much more than they were doing to me.

    Thanks, I'll make a mental note of this.

    Are there any bread/butter items with Rammus that I should be aware of?

    Like - items that are a necessity for him?
