    No date, but I assume soon. Probably after the previous event tokens expire.

    I mean, I was Masters and near Grandmasters in HotS and some of that translates, but I still don’t know the abilities of 80% of the champs and items.

    Oh, that makes more sense. I knew you were active in the thread but never paid enough attention to anyone's ranks or anything.

    Trailers and such have just been posted, so I'll add to the chorus of "I'm pretty sure it's this week." :D

    Also: Clash is this weekend if anyone needs the reminder to go hunt a team.

    I hit masters about a year ago? Ish? And since then stopped caring about my ranked status and focus on my amateur team, which has fallen apart due to betrayal and killed my interest in the game.

    @H3Knuckles hey I play a fair amount of swain. He's an aggressive close combat mage. When he hits with his W (vision of empire), uses his passive to yank a CC'd enemy, or approaches where an enemy died he gets a soul charge which heals him a bit and makes his ult a little stronger. Also gives him 5 hp max per charge.

    His E (the claw thing) takes some practice to hit. He's sort of a hard champ to play well but I really like him.

    Has there ever been a team that has fallen as hard as C9? Undefeated in spring, which should matter and you should get points for, but that's a different point. Then 9-0 in summer ( I think?) before going like 2-7 or some shit. Then shitting the bed in the playoffs.

    They were playing so good, so aggressive, and seemed to have had the game figured out. They were playing the game right, and in a way to win internationally. Then did they just get cocky? Does blabber actually suck? (I don't think he's as good as he's been perceived. They started another jungle ahead of him for a reason) Once they banned olaf they started falling apart.

    I never thought Blabber was an MVP jungler he was just on a good team that enabled him, and summer split showed that I thought. Even though he won MVP I actually think he may be a fairly weak link. Sven is the weakest IMO, but I've never been sold on blabber. They started Svenskerin (spelling?) for a reason, and blabber sat the bench.

    I'm just so disappointed in them and have no clue how they collapsed like this.

    *didn't spoil this cause it's been a week since the match, if you cared you would have watched by now *

    Immortals in 2016 and Team Liquid this past spring are probably the closest (and maybe G2 had they not flipped the switch late in Summer), but yeah C9’s collapse is rough and really lacking any true comparison.

    everything about this character seems like it will not make my experience of the game better, but in fact make it worse

    like who was sitting there like "i love katarina ult and resetting, but i also want to invalidate all projectile based characters. i wish i could be the worst champ to fight for everyone"

    Her W has no reset only her dash (which is targeted) does. Her ult requires set up so she can't just show up and use it, and she only has follow up CC.

    I expect her to actually be pretty hard to use and weak.

    katarinas don't have this problem because the level 4 gold sacks in bot lane get instakilled by it anyway.

    Janna can be a lot of fun and does surprising damage with an AP build . I love her in aram.

    you truly have to wonder what's wrong with the matchmaker when it puts a group of a diamond 1, a plat 1, and 2 golds 1s against 3 randoms and a two man group, none of which are above silver.

    like, truly what on earth is even the point. they proceeded to flame us relentlessly for 30 minutes trying to get us to surrender since apparently two people on my team like wasting their time down 15k gold until they finally accidentally had enough minions to win against their will.

    just give me the L and move on, i could have told you that game was over before it even started.

    One of the biggest things about Pyke (and all hook characters in general) is that not using your hook can be just as threatening as when you do use it.

    If it's always off CD then your opponent (if they are playing well) has to respect this and modify their positioning to avoid it.

    If you throw out hooks willy nilly then they don't. Also it helps to get the mobis boots and start charging in a bush and then launch it as you run toward them.

    After that the biggest thing is getting the aim and timing down on your R

    I'm rusty and playing fairly poorly but hes a refreshing change from the tanky and caster supports.

    I can only imagine how annoying it is for the other team when I am having a good Janna game

    It doesn't seem like it's very fun to play against!

    nothing like turning off chat because you're tired of being told relentlessly to end my own life (of which none of these people ever suffer consequences somehow, but then its just replaced with endless ping spam from a 4 man.

    idk this game has literally the worst community ever and i don't know how riot is so bad at managing it.

    The thing it really reminded me of was that the game used to have mastery trees, and those (along with last hitting) were among the biggest reasons why I didn’t pick up the game.

    That looks similar but different. I remember the troll face and building 6 phantom dancers. The cloth + 5 soda pot start sounds familiar though

    Blast through Silver 3 to be stomped my next two games in Silver 2. Explaining this game is like an addict talking about that last high as they lay in a gutter.

    Higher in rank you go the quicker people are to just leave the game at 5 minutes.

    So that's why you refuse to learn non-supports ;)
