The other guys I run with have suggested I start playing Ashe, as Lev is. We'll see how this foray into LoL/DoTAjr. goes. I pretty much expect to be back in WoW in record time.



It's a lot more fun than it looks :) I cancelled my WoW account and started playing LoL pretty much exclusively.


If you're playing on the US servers add Johndrum, I'll play a practice game or two with you and show ya the ropes.

Lotta "I rage cause cause other people rage at me" going on here it seems. It's probably cause you guys are just starting out, LoL has a much better community than HoN overall imo.

So I just was in a group where absolutely noone was speaking english, caught a few NOOB and RYZE in the same sentence, so I could tell they weren't too impressed with my ability.

I would guess portugese, but not too sure.

seeing as I was something like 1/4/3 that game, not so much.



However, just finished my best game yet, 12/4/9 tying for top kills and assists.

I'm pretty quiet in-game. I lane where I'm asked to lane, and the only "advice" I try to give people is calling MIA's during early game or trying to get people to move when they've been standing in one place for too long late game. No movement = dead team, and a lot of people don't realize that yet.

I was in a game where there was great teamwork and communication, except i still got caught unaware because all 4 other people were a premade from Poland, and i dont speak polish very well, so all i caught was things like "du mie Ryze...." and then ryze shows up and destroys me... not a fun game, one person spoke enough english to go "yea, we're from poland."
Deathknights are whores! They're cheap, easy, and spread diseases.

A game I had earlier was with 3 or 4 of the other people on my team being all friends, but they weren't real good. Their Evelynn was decent, but the spent most of the match complaining that "we have to win in the next 5 or 10 minutes because so-and-so has to leave" instead of actually trying to win. Both sides were losing inhibitors and in the end the enemy TF went into our base and killed our nexus while the rest of us were in their base working on the same thing.

The game after that more than made up for it though. The other team was pretty good and I thought we were going to get stomped, but once we managed to shut down their TF and Kat we were able to push and they surrendered early, even though I think if they regrouped and countered us they could have aced us and made their own push. It felt pretty good when the other team started jokingly yelling at me in chat that I needed to stop healing so they could get more kills.

Had a pretty embarrassing team in a 4v5, in our favor. The other team outleveled us quickly as you'd imagine, and ganked the hell out of mid and bottom in early game. By the time it moved to team fights we were all around level 8-10 and they were 13-15. For a long time we couldn't go anywhere without getting our asses handed to us, even as a group, and someone on my team kept trying to forfeit. Luckily the first time someone on our team was d/c'ed for a moment, and his vote counted no, and I was the only other one to vote no. After that I managed to do enough burst healing in group fights to keep us up long enough to get a few key kills on their Evelynn and Ashe to bring us back into the game, and once we were back close in levels it was a pretty straightforward steamroll.

I've been trying a more offensive/support Soraka build and it seems pretty nice. I've also decided to try and learn a tanking champion, but haven't decided which one yet. Malphite(sp?) seemed pretty simple, but I don't think I've seen a *good* one anywhere yet. I heard Pantheon is liked by a lot of people, as is Shen, but I don't think the latter really fits my playstyle.

I've seen a couple of really good Shens around the place, so I thought I'd try it out. Yeah. I'm terrible at tanking characters in this game.

*hugs Ashe and Sivir*

I've been enjoying Pantheon recently, going to try out the new hero Malzahar soon.

Add "warangel120" and I'll be happy to play a game. :)
