    this is interesting, but i'm unsure about any metric that puts jinx into the same bucket as lucian draven and kalista.

    jinx is much more farm the map than lane brawler with her literally instant clear of any waves after 2 items and ridiculous aspd steroid letting her kill any tower if you walk away for 10 seconds. her early teamfighting is ok but i wouldn't say it's a strength and heavily reliant on the support.

    They actually addressed this in a comment! I'm reproducing it:

    "Jinx is similar to the Lane Bullies in objective control/damage, where 'Hyper Carries' like Vayne and Cassiopeia are very slow to take their first turret.. lane bullies + Jinx shred through them."

    In this case, I suppose it's a combination of "better bully than people realize" + "ends laning phase earlier," as their "lane bullies" bucket includes ADCs who want the game to end early. There are some more "fringe" candidates in the different categories, but there is actual data to back up the groupings underneath the hood, so to speak.

    (I am not a stats person by any means, but it sounds like they know what they're talking about.)

    Edit: Oh Celestials, MF ult doesn't break Lillia's ultimate sleep.

    I mean also this is what, a webscrape of a number of games and then clustering along multiple variables including dmg before 15 min, towers taken, cs lead of team at 15 min, shit like that?
    They are saying it's more or less statistically true that Jinx shares similar values along these variables as some other champions, then giving it a cute name.
    (...this seems like a cute little project and not hard! If I were in the 'I need a portfolio' stage of my career I'd totally copy them and write it up)

    Ooh also I played a lovely Jinx game. My team picked Shen, Soraka, Ivern, and Diana, and I was like 'well, this is the universe telling me to play an immobile hypercarry cause I will be lousy with shields', so I did and I was!
    ...but tbh actually got entirely carried by Diana who had ~25 kills. Still though, I got to free auto with 4 items and a million shields and it felt great :D

    Making a (likely futile) last ditch effort at Plat after being hardstuck in mid Gold all season. I have been doing much better since I've accepted that I can't handle all the Teemo tops that run ignite and just ban the fucker every game.

    Thought this play was pretty cool so I saved it. Currently at 50 lp G2 so I probably need to break into G1 by the end of the weekend to have any realistic shot.

    Please consider the environment before printing this post.

    Even if you lose, you'll be back before you know it. Just a matter of amassing enough games until the coinflips go in your favor.

    Yeah I went 0-3 with 3 abysmal teams that I could not save.

    Literally every game securing everything for my ADC and then they and the rest of the team are just garbo

    I’ve played like 8 ranked games since I got gold. My run through silver had basically no problems with inters, ragers, flamers, anything.

    4 of my 8 games have had someone literally quit, run it down and quit, or just run it down. What the hell happened lol.

    ...let's see if I can get back into promos tonight :D

    Okay, I'm loving Sera. Have only gotten a chance to run her as support, but goddamn is that ult a thing. Was able to pull a enemy team out from under a inhib tower to get utterly murdered.

    Fun fact: Exhaust counts as a slow to enable the E root.

    The people you're playing with hit their goal of gold before seasons end and now just don't care is my guess.

    I'm not sure you'd want to go ap even if you're popping off. Aftershock makes you tanky, but you're still going to be asked to initiate most the time I'm guessing and still ward on your own. If I was brand, zyra, etc... I'd be sure to go ap. But I'm not sure if that's right on galio.

    My wife woke me up at 3 am in a panic because she thought we missed open enrollment

    Oh well, guess I'll watch World's Opening Ceremony!

    Also, Game 1 spoilers:
    An NA team would have just mental boomed, gone "Next", and rolled over after that awful Infernal Soul fight, but not Suning, man. They clawed right back in the game. We are NOT getting anywhere as a region until we get on that level of just sheer guts.

    I'm excited for Ruined King because it's made by the people who made Battle Chasers. I love the world of league and it's ripe for an rpg.

    Worth noting about the Ruined King trailer: his sword's symbol seems to match the one on the romantic jungle skirmisher teaser from last road map.

    Omg game 2 of world's finals. Such a good game. And those comps were exciting too
    Finally I see why fiora is scary. Fucking pentakill in the finals and single handedly carried them to the win. And a rental?

    Hype.

    I got right back into my series after failing it once, and my support raged at the (abysmallll) jungler and then disconnected for game 1, then the next game there was a 20-kill yasuo, then the next game I laned pretty anemically so now I'm back to 40 LP again ;_;

    My thought was to get Liandrys after my first item and boots.

    It's a mixture. There's no world in which Illaoi is top 6, probably not even top 30. Yasuo and Ahri are definitely there because they're popular. Pyke is there because he fits the story of "Bilgewater dealing with the Shadow Isles" given y'know, his whole deal. I don't think Braum is hugely popular, but Riot likes him.

    Got to gold 3. Think that's probably going to be the end for the season, maybe gold 2 if i'm extremely lucky, pretty happy though.

    Probably the least popular of the bunch there is Braum, but also the one I was most excited about. He’s been a support main stance since he was introduced but he’s not tied to the regions presented so I’m really wondering why he’s there.

    Yas and Ahri are also not of the region so I’m surprised to see them. But less so since they’re both incredibly popular.

    My guess is that Braum is there to be a foil/straight man to bounce comedy off.

    braum's just a fun character design, and i imagine super enjoyable to write for.

    ever get piledriven by a diamond 2 irelia with a yuumi bot lane so hard you truly wonder why you're even playing league. i died so many times the very instant she showed up from fog of war a full screen away that i think i have ptsd.

    she killed me and my support level 3 at 25% hp in like, maybe 4 seconds, and then we never had another chance. yuumi is just such a badly designed champion, you gotta wonder what they were thinking tbh.

    Got 3 more orbs and I rerolled 3 skins into Meowkai. Didn't Maokai so I bought him and this skin is the first time I've considered buying multiple chromas. I dig this skin a lot.

    They set up Yas and Ahri going to Bilgewater in the spirit Blossom videos. I have no idea about Braum. Does anyone know if they have done anything on why Braum is there (maybe in LoR)?

    enchanters can't be untargetable! their only weakness is that they're kinda squishy and generally immoble! kill the healer etc etc.

    yuumi is almost literally league's take on abathur

    def, but abathur has a body that you can target, and has explicit bonuses to switching targets throughout the fight as it resets his hat CDs.

    and also he doesn't have an instant 50% hp heal lol, had a shield, and over time sustain healing with a talent iirc. i mean obviously you know, but if you play abathur by sitting on someone for 10 minutes at a time while facerolling your hat cooldowns you're probably losing in all but the most specific circumstances. If you play yuumi by being permanantly stuck to your hypermobile melee champion as they dive in and out of the other team while you hold the E button down, you're winning the game.
