    Servers were down all day - they came up before I left for work and now I get home and they are down again.

    So - was anyone able to get a game against Vladimir? He looks ridiculous.

    the issue with him is that his spells all cost his health, and for them to be effective he has to be really close range where he can't always afford to give up 20% of his health for one spell.

    I still want to unlock him :P

    I played AS him, actually. and with him.

    he's, ok. definitely not ridiculous.

    I seem to do worse when I play with you guys!! It might be because of the PRESSURE, but it is probably because I am against way higher-level folks

    yes this is irritating

    Vlad is a really, really nice lane buddy to have. Haven't played as him, but man, he's fun to lane with.

    An aside. Just did a 3v5. I was on the team of 3. We won. I love this game.

    Yeah I'd heard the EU servers were gunna be down from 2AM UK time today, but you know that was probably this morning. Maybe the servers are all overloaded from all the people getting on to play Vlad because he's awesome. Now I'm sort of regretting not getting his Marquis skin. It looked sort of silly, but it would be kind of cool too.

    I played a little as vlad, he is definately strong but he is no xin zhao. The whole health-as-mana thing is throwing me off but I really like him. Sanguine pool is fun times.

    Vlad is cool, but needs some work I think. He doesn't do a whole lot of damage and he's made of wet tissue paper

    His ult kinda sucks (2 minute cooldown for a damage spell that does less than Zilean's timebomb), but his W is bangin' (it does AoE damage and AoE slow, and it makes Vlad invincible).

    I think a low-damage but good utility build would be HP + CDR. He never dies.

    Yeah, it would help if they amped up the damage on his spells a bit, upped the ability power modifiers, maybe made him receive more of the damage he does as health with is Q, etc.

    He gets pretty good by mid, and by the end he's really useful, but in the beginning he's really not the best.

    Played a game where there was a vlad on each team.

    He was hard to focus fire because he as soon as he took damage he would sink into sanguine pool, slowing us and getting out of range.

    This was a pubbie so of course we couldn't coordinate to stun/silence him while focusing him.

    Once I got used to his tricks though he wasn't any harder to kill and didn't seem any more dangerous than the others champs on the field.

    I have a really hard time entering team fights as Tristiana. It seems like I always end up getting focused while the other teams trist or squishy carry manages to stay out of range. I'm not really sure how to set up so that i'm able to do damage but not going to get chased down by a xin or w/e

    I've never played Tristiana, but from a melee point of view, I can offer only this advice. Though it may seem like a good idea, refrain from using that move where you knock them up and back. Too many times now a Tristiana player has made what would've been a guaranteed kill get away.

    in a team fight yeah you generally don't want to use the r unless it's full on retreat time

    vlad kind of sucks because whether or not he's any good depends on team composition
    His ult kinda sucks (2 minute cooldown for a damage spell that does less than Zilean's timebomb), but his W is bangin' (it does AoE damage and AoE slow, and it makes Vlad invincible).

    his ult isn't supposed to do face-damage. It increases the damage everyone does to the target(s) for five seconds by 12/16/20%

    Compared to the baron buff which is just a straight 40 ap and 40 damage his r is basically going to be as good as that for any hero that can make a 200 damage attack

    so yeah heavily dependent on team composition

    But combo it with a nunu ultimate or a poppy using her ultimate on somebody for total bonus of 60% damage and it could be the gayest thing imaginable

    poppy could deathfire for like 80% of their health

    In fact they are probably going to win just because of Fortify.

    A little over an hour. They managed to destroy 1 inhibitor, and only the tower guarding it. Somehow we just came back.
    I'm calling this effect the "Rammus-Rally", because, Rammus, as the awesome ability to completely reverse a push once he's gear right

    It ended with me soloing their Nexus while four of them wailed on me. Rammus defensive ball curl is way overpowered, 4 people should be able to focus kill him.
    The round lasted long enough for me to rock 2x Warmog's Armor, Sunfire Cape, Thornmail, and a chalice of harmony. I couldn't believe it when I bought the second Warmog's

    I didn't play as Veigar, Kog'Maw, or Vlad before I got them. They being the only three heroes I have so far.

    Edit: How convenient, the upcoming free heroes includes both Mordekaiser and Cho'gath.

    my brother plays amumu, almost exclusively, start with doran's shield, lvl 1 boots, Rod of ages, and the rest of the items depends on the team your up against, like sunfire capes vs heavy melee, or force of nature vs casters. Make sure to max out tantrum followed by tears, always go for golem buff as soon as your able, and to gank just walk up to them and tantrum spam along with tears and save bandage toss for when they run away followed by ult.

    Also you can use bandage toss on enemy and neutral minions to get away easier since you can go through walls with it, except for the ghosts in the middle you cant pull yourself through the wall with them.
