    Man it seems like there is a lot of trolling potential in joining hon games and just being TERRIBLE.

    Anyway, we should if possible seperate eu tags from the rest. I'm volunteering for this tedious bit of bookkeeping.

    Wait, what does SS stand for?

    MIA makes sense=Missing in Action, very nice way to describe it.

    Wtf does SS stand for?

    "Hey guys! Top is Shutzstaffel!"

    I'd guess he was talking about soulstealer given my rudimentary knowledge of HoN. v:?v

    On topic for LoL: Whats the best way to counter a katarina? Seems like most games I play where the other team has one she just absolutely destroys running around with a full 20 stack Mejals. Of course this means the games where my team has one she runs around and dies a lot.

    You stun her

    give Kat some CC and she just fall over and die.

    Same for Nunu, same for Galio. Galio is hilarious:

    Yeah I've rarely seen a good Kat versus a good team. Her power is in her ult and if you stop that it messes her up something awful.

    Galio went right to the top of the good tank list didn't he? I don't mean the number one spot. But he's up there, right?

    edit: Also Tri-force on Xin shao?

    I'm trying to decide which Phys dpser i'm going to use. Jax doesn't seem as fun anymore for some reason.

    On the plus side i'm loving mundo since i switched to the US client, EFF YES BLOOD EFFECTS

    I just picked up Singed, and I'm not quite sure how to build him. I was thinking flat HP Reds, mana regen yellows, and cooldown blues with flat HP quints, and 9/21/0 in masteries (eventually, I'm only level 11). Also, should I be playing him as a tank, or as a champion who happens to have a lot of health while I run around poisoning everyone?

    I would put him up there, yes. Probably too new for solid rankings but personally I would put him at whatever tier exists right under Amumu (who I still think is probably the best tank, at least in premades).

    No, he's very much vulnerable to stuns, silences, and knockups. Maybe you hit him with stun before he ulted?

    don't know if stuns affect him, but knocks certainly do. My last ranked game had my Tristana being the designated "GALIO BREAKER" because of my knockback and my huge range.

    I guess it's possible that it's just somehow glitched with regards to bear stance. Dunno how that'd happen with bear stance alone, but I guess it could be true.

    Maybe since you were taunted, it doesn't allow you to use abilities, so your bear stance won't proc on hits. Cause it would count as an ability?

    Yep. I love off-tank/fat Vlad for teamfights and taking down towers. Heart of Gold x2. Merc Treads. Sunfire or FoN, then the other one. Guardian Angel. Then sell the HoGs for two more Sunfires. Five game winning streak with the build (the sixth is AP build).

    With enough Armor/MR and decent support you can pool twice in teamfights to prevent escapes as well as doing good AoE dps and slow to everyone with E, W, and Sunfire.

    My bad on the typo. The slow is from pool.

    The build itself is another PA'er. I got it from them and love the hell out of it.

    I found a bug with Nunu. If you are doing his ult, and you get taunted, his ult will end, but you won't be affected by the taunt. The first time it happened, I ulted, then Galio came in and did his ult, and I proceeded to walk out of his blast radius. In another game, I was ulting and Rammus used his taunt on me during my ult, and again, it stopped my ult, but I was able to walk away.

    Taric is a support/healer character (along with Soraka, the silencing energizer bunny healbot and Janna, the godess slut of assists). Kayle is an amazing carry/tower pusher with support abilities. She melts faces, but can't keep someone up herself with heals.

    I, too, am learning new characters. I bought Alistar and TF via random number generator. But honestly, I don't think I'm a big enough asshole to play TF.

    Every TF I've ever played with has no interest in teamfights whatsoever or being helpful in any way. These are actual things our pub TF did in the last game I played.

    1) TF insists on going mid and locks in within 2 seconds of the champ select screen coming up. Once the game starts the second he hits 6 he decides to go on ganking adventures. He comes up to gank Singed. I snare him but he uses cleanse and ghost and runs the fuck away. TF bitches that this is somehow our fault for screwing this up. TF, instead of going back to mid or helping with top, thinks it is now time to jungle. Middle is getting pushed up and when we ping it, he spouts racists slurs and says not to ping. He doesn't return to a lane the next 15 minutes.

    2) Me (Morgana) and Nunu are getting tower dived by 3 people. We see destiny pop up so the two of us run forward and ult. Except TF doesn't come in. He instead uses his teleport to go kill the dragon because nobody was there.

    3) Our base is getting pushed in and TF is backdooring top. Only one person is left alive trying desperately to hold the middle inhibitor. TF pushes the minions up to the tower then starts teleporting back. Then he changes his mind and decides to kill the golems and the lizard. Then he finally teleports back after our tower and inhib is down and they're backing out.

    4) We beg TF to show up for teamfights. He says "You play your way, I'll play mine." and proceeds to use Destiny to gank Heimer over and over again since heimer was trying to stack archangels. He ended up with a lot of kills, but about 90% of them were on heimer who was not at all a threat to anybody at any time.

    thanks for the advice vagrant_winds

    Twisted fate never seemed that strong to me. I mean sure he could chase me down when his ult was up etc. But other than that eh.

    Haven't fought him when i was playing Karthus or morgana though. I imagine they have it a bit worse

    Galio is hilariously vulnerable to all types of CC. Xin, Garen, Blitz, anyone with CC on hit can ruin his ult quickly.

    I'd consider him a fairly average tank. He has some good potential in a really really really AoE heavy team, but outside it he's fairly meh. In most teams, I consider Shen, Amumu, Singed, Alistar, and potentially Rammus all better tanks than him.

    Alistar's woefully unrewarding in pugs. Have you tried Singed? If you like the idea of knocking people around, but would like to deal damage/find yourself getting kills/feel more independent. He's good, though. Nice ranked champion.

    I find pugs don't really know what to do with him (which is why I've shelved the 'lil guy), but even with 2 or 3 arranged, he's pretty nice. YMMV?

    He can take a tower down really well, so there's that.

    Alistar is a setup guy. He's only good if your team understands when you are setting them up. If they ignore your charges and pounds, you won't be very effective. He's a total team dependent character.

    jax and mord go top for 5 minutes trying and failing to gank yi. Leaving me as annie 1v2 vs fiddle and pantheon, who have no trouble forcing me to recall every minute. Then I suck when I'm underlevelled and undergeared when they all come down to try to gank. Which results in a 3v2 TPW.

    QUAD-KILL Alistar murders towers. You also ruin enemy carries' days.

    Start with a Mana Crystal and potions (Or perhaps one of the Doran's items. Ring/Shield) > Boots 1 and Sheen ASAP > Rageblade and Boots 2 > Lichbane > Rylai's > Atma's > At this point fuck it, Frozen Hammer.

    I get one point in all three skills early, then prioritize Ult > Headbutt > Heal > Slam.

    Remember that you can knock someone up and Headbutt him into turret range or to your buddies, but you can also Headbutt and Ground Slam in transit to knock them up after pushing them back a wee bit. This is awesome for harassment or for finishing fleeing champions, but it takes some practice to get right.

    If you feel you don't quite need the extra HP/AP from Rylai's you could go for Atma's Impaler early for the extra armor, bonus damage, and crit. He gains a lot of natural HP so it still very much helps.

    And if you make sure to use your ult in a timely fashion you can still tank all but the most fed characters reasonably well without too many HP items, and if you see something you feel like killing YOU ARE THE MOTHERFUCKING JUGGERNAUT.

    Alistar's Headbutt can also be used to save dudes on your team from chasers or jerks like Fiddles. It's very versatile!

    Also, for whatever reason Malphite isn't categorized as a 'tank'. He's a pretty good one, though, if a little crippled early due to mana issues (which the upcoming patch should hopefully fix).
