    I don't see the point of tiger stance

    If it procs on-hit effects like Bloodrazor or Black Cleaver with every hit, I could see it being a good opener. Or for jungling with Madred's Razor. I don't know if this is the case.

    Works fine with Madred's Bloodrazor, but with Madred's Razor the proc does 1/3rd of the damage in Tiger stance, making it stupid.

    In response to this from the last thread, this means that one set of three hits from a Bloodrazor in Tiger stance will do 240 damage on top of what you'd normally do to a 2000 HP carry with no magic resist. That's just under 1/8 of that character's health in the span of one auto attack with just one point in Tiger.

    And placing Wards near Barron and ganking the opposing team there THREE TIMES as they failed to grasp the concept is flipping hilarious.

    Did Kayle get nerfed recently? I couldn't find the patch notes with a quick google so I'll go with yes.

    Tiger stance only procs on-hit effects for the first hit of the triplecombo. Otherwise it would be stupidly good.

    Tiger stance is purely for the on activation proc and the passive increased attack speed (not the split into 3 bs, which is only useful vs. Poppy and Panth).

    only time I'm ever in tiger stance is when I'm taking down towers, or trying to focus down one dumb butt tank.

    even then i'd just use phoenix

    testing a pure AD build with tiger stance atm

    Surprisingly hard nuking, although really fiddly. Also crits seem to function oddly with tiger, sometimes displaying, sometimes not, and they feel at an incorrectly low rate.

    I see your point, and respectfully disagree. I go straight AP. Grab Majai's and as long as you can keep a decent amount of stacks on it (10 or more) with his passive and AP items It's hard for me to not kill an entire team in fights. Maybe I'm the only one, but I will never build him any other way.

    So I was playing Annie earlier today and the team had me go mid. And my opponent was a Vlad.

    I just... I don't even know what the fuck. I felt like I had absolutely zero chance against him. He would life leech nuke, I would use my fireball, in the end he'd restore most of his health and mine would dwindle down quickly.

    Was there anything I could do in that situation or was that a really bad match-up? He didn't even care when I did stun fireball -> flame wave. He just turned around and went back to beating the shit out of me.

    Yes, I'm having trouble getting in.

    Unfortunate too. This game has been relatively lag free for about 2 weeks. I figured their server situation had improved in some way.

    Lately I have been unable to get enough of that one Tosh mission in SC 2. You know which one.

    And then I was like, "Godammit, someone should make a whole game like this!"

    And then someone else was like, "Uh. They have. They've made a few."


    And now I've downloaded the LoL, and will break you all.

    Some advice:
    pick a couple heroes and stick with them till you learn from playing against other heroes what you want to have permanently.

    Play defensively and just come out from behind your creep wave to make the last hit to kill creeps to make money.

    The biggest hurdle with these types of games is learning what heroes do and what you can do to counter them or lessen their advantage. Sadly that knowledge mostly comes from playing, though you can read up on heroes and what they do in the games interface.

    well when i went back and realized that all mid all random was a war of attrition archangel's seemed like a good idea

    rylai's sounded like a good idea when i went back but then i thought about it and i was like "do any of her tiger abilities count as magic damage for my rylai's?" and somehow i convinced myself that they were all things like poppy's devastating blow, that affect my next attack

    this isn't the case, is it

    Her Q in cougar form doesn't proc Rylai's but her pounce and swipe do. Also it makes her traps slow so it can be funny!

    Didn't realize that was an all random all mid game however.

    I just want to use the guy that looks somewhat like The Vindicator from Spawn. Apparently it eats people? Fucking rad.

    If that doesn't work out, I'll probably try Dr. Mundo.

    What makes Shen such a pro tank character? I've played probably in the neighborhood of 15-20 matches as Shen, and I've never been satisfied with my own results.

    I never feel like my taunts are long enough. It often feels as if the taunt element of the dash completely fails.

    I'm never satisfied with the healing factor on his sword throw, and the damage on the sword throw is downright pathetic.

    I'm never satisfied with the damage absorption on Feint. It always feels like its never enough.

    And finally, his ult is nice for the mobility, but given that I've never been satisfied with his other 3 abilities, I've never had a truly epic port where I show up and turn the tide of a battle. I feel like every time I show up, the battle pretty much takes the same natural course it was gonna take anyway, whether its a win or a loss. In other words, I feel like I'm simply not a contributor as a positive or negative force.


    I say all of that, because I really want to learn how to be good with him. So if anyone has advice. Or if there are some good Shen videos to watch and learn how to be the king of tanks, I need to figure this out.

    Also, what sort of build should I be doing? What summoner spells? What runes? What masteries? What items?

    Basically, I feel like everything I'm ever doing as Shen is all wrong and I need to basically start over at the beginning because I obviously don't even understand him.

    You can unlock champions via influence points(which you get at the end of a game, you get more if you win than if you lose)

    Or you can spend cash monies on them.

    And every week there is a new rotation of "Free to play champions" that are free to play.

    But that was obvious from the title of them.

    Oh, and buy Nasus. Because he's the best. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, they're lying.

    The easiest/cheapest champion is Ashe, she's fairly straight forward, you're ranged so you don't have to learn when to retreat and when to dive for creeps as much so I'd recommend her for first champ.

    She's also squishy as fuck, so if you manage to learn how to not die as her, you should be able to manage to learn how to not die as most other champions.

    I don't understand :( I know I'm not the best player, but I'm not that fucking terrible.

    And yet, my solo-queue rating keeps going down, and I'm being put on teams with progressively dumber people. I feel like I spend a third of my time in game now explaining things to players because they have no idea.

    I don't mean like yelling at them, ranting, or raving. I mean honest to god having to explain that the laning phase is over, you should come to the team rather than being angry at having been abandoned in your lane. I mean explaining that since 2 of our inhibitors are down, we should stay and defend for a while rather than wandering around out there.

    And the people listen, kind of. Or at least they don't take offense. That's how bad/new they are. They actually hear this as some sort of new amazing tip they had never heard before.

    I just don't understand. I'm not this fucking bad. What is happening?

    Once you get the arm-grab thingy, it will work wonders for your team and you will p much have a free kill for your group when it lands successfully.

    I've done it with Warwick in a practise game and it made me /flex. I just think it would be so pimp to do it for real. Maybe get your team to keep the enemy distracted, then out of nowhere the buff pops up and the enemy's like WTF?
