Ezreal is free for the week

so, of course, nobody is playing him in ranked matches now >_>

I gave him a shot, I'm half decent at skillshots, so it worked out pretty well, got my first triple kill

all the armor in the world doesnt keep his frail ass alive, though

oh no, a stiff wind!

EZREAL HAS BEEN SLAIN

You don't really build armor on AD carries. The point of their mobility is to not get close enough to die. You should have enough lifesteal to keep you alive vs the enemy adc, and otherwise stay out of the way and just hit whatever is closest.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

What's your elo at?

About 850 with 30 games or so played. I really can't get into playing many ranked games because it's always a 4v5.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

I understand, and that works when your teammates understand the premise of teamfights

but most players at my level just blow their CDs, and run away [presumably squeeling like little girls]

They also don't lay any wards, or even give a nod to map awareness, team comp, etc

They don't know what last hitting is, they don't understand not pushing the minions, they don't care about dragon/baron, they don't understand that NO support has a spammable heal


examples: Yesterday I took bottom with a Lux who didn't bubble anyone the entire game, but instead put all her gold in cooldowns while she stole everyone's kills [sometimes even suiciding on a turret to steal a kill]

I've played multiple matches with 2 tanks, both of which would be the first to disengage. Leaving one champion [usually me] to get gangbanged while they run back to our base.



so yeah, some matches I need a little armor on my champ, usually something along the lines of Force of Nature/Guardian Angel, depending on what's hitting me.

I have one complaint (well, two) about LoL. First, servers. A lot of my friends who play it are American, and since accounts aren't shared between servers I can't play with them unless I make a US account (therefore losing my accumulated champions and runes etc). Second complaint is NOBODY SPEAKS GODDAMN ENGLISH WHAT THE HELL it's a game where you need to act as a team, which is impossible for me because I end up with Germans or something. Or, most commonly, Brazilians who are only capable of saying "jajajajajajajajaja lol" over and over.

Fuck people

I'm an awesome Cho'gath though. Pile on the attack/health equips and devour a few things and I can steamroll most unprepared champs. Especially if I just hide in the grass for a while until they go past, then attack from behind.

lol, right?

And when they do speak english, it's only enough to insult the team

Another thing: you get penalized for leaving matches, which I can understand, completely, but leeway/recognition is necessary

I recently hit Level 1 on the Leave-punishment-thing because LoL crashed on me, then I couldn't connect to the servers when I started it back up

first match I can remember leaving, and it wasn't even through my own volition

Oh god that happened to me a lot. At one point I hit level 3 or something because my parents were using the internet at the same time, which fucked with the wifi something chronic. So I'd reconnect and 2 minutes later my connection would drop and bam, gone.

I got banned for a week or something due to it I think, was pissed as fuck. They should only penalize people who click on quit, not people like you or me who just end up losing connection through no fault of our own.

To avoid it once I spent 20 minutes trying to reconnect. Ended up having the best k/d ratio because I d/ced shortly after killing an enemy champ, and rejoined just as our team destroyed their nexus. 1/0/0 ftfw as a level 2 xD

Against everything I knew I bought Karthus...

The BR finally have their own server. If you do make a US account hit me up, emosaurusrex. I've been wanting to make a smurf anyway

Karthus is a really good mid. All you gotta do is farm up on minions - don't try to 1v1 anyone unless they really over extend without cooldowns. If you get farmed though, you're a powerhouse late game. Suicide bomber style. B)

True dat.

Teamfight starts, Press R, turn on defile and flash into the middle of it. BAM you've taken 1/3rd to 2/3rds of the enemy teams HP and your ADC alone should be able to clean up.

Karthus is a suicide bomber. Really, your only job on him is to get a solid gate out for a good initiation and follow the tank(s) in with defile and peppermint spam.

WHAAAAT?!

That was practically the whole reason I bought him ._.

does it still shred magic resist?


Also, advice from a random Lvl 15 player, to a Kass on our team who kept dying [like, 10 times in 7 minutes]

24 shred was pretty significant, especially on low armor targets (inb4 effective health argument)

I would maths for you but I'm lazy~

Well, wall of pain is something I usually only rank at 5 or 7, then take no more ranks in

by that time, they usually won't have magic resist, unless I've been harassing them in-lane

also, ranking Wall of pain doesnt rank magic shred anymore, just the wall size and slow %

Sad karthus needs magic pen
