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.

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."

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.

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. :)

Had a team ragequit because apparently it is our fault if we take advantage of them being down a man and using it to our advantage to gank early. Then we had a few good laughs over ganking a level one when he rejoined the game late and tried to push a lane alone, when we were around level 15 each.

AoE classes seem to be pretty strong in general in this game, assuming they don't feed the other team during early game. We were facing a Fiddlesticks that could almost kill our entire team if we were pushing together.

Been having a lot of fun with Master Yi lately. He's pretty damn strong in mid/late game. And even early if you can work him right. Beat my personal best yesterday and went 29-0-12 in a 5v5, with an AMAZING 1v5 victory (albeit they were spread out a little bit and 2 of them were at half health when I started.)

It was hilarious when my team went "Oh man, wait for us we'll team gank em". I went and soloed their entire team and everyone but me either went "uhhhhhhhhh" or "wtffff?"

I picked up twisted fate and found my new favorite champion. Stack attack speed and some damage and you annihilate. the highest I hit was 2.745 attack speed, 2.745 attacks a second is a wonderous thing when you stun for 2.5 seconds with gold card and do a crap ton more damage every fourth attack, if you stack to three with stacked deck skill (4th attack does a lot more damage)queue gold card stun and gate in on someone between 1/2 and 3/4 health, you can kill them nearly in the time of the stun. My goal as TF is to be the guy that gets cursed at after a snipe kill or two. Some examples that had me responding with my new trademark line "Yea, I'm that douchebag" was gate killing someone inside their base as they ran for the heal circle and then flashing out over wall to safety, another great one was gating in to kill their slightly under-leveled pantheon, then dropping the master yi that came to save him with a gold card massive crit string and ignite as he was running, they both were in chat cursing at me as being op.

It seems there are some pretty crazy people that play this time of morning. My lane partner is the last match I played almost got himself killed three times before the game even started, by running into the bushes, back to the tower, back to the bushes, etc. The funny thing is, he was the only one that ended the match with 0 deaths. He didn't do a lot, but we won, and he did push one or two towers, as well as the final push to make them surrender.

I played the most aggressive Soraka I have yet, and it really showed, although I admit that neither team was real spectacular. Ended with something like 7 kills, 2 deaths, and 16 or 17 assists in a 30 minute game that had *ONE* real teamfight. Which actually worked out well for our tam comp. It was more or less both sides playing tug-of-war in the middle lane with 3 or 4 people at most at a time, but with no real battles, and one or two people hopping out to try and push the side lanes. The only real fights were usually weird chases through the jungle, and for once I was able to push lanes and level pretty significantly pretty quickly every time my Ult wasn't on cooldown, and I could be more than a few seconds away from my team without worrying about them dying.

Mightve gotten it backwards and it was like 2.47, either way it was fast, it almost messed up te graphics and sound it was flying quite quickly.

Played a game where an Akali and myself as Soraka forced a double rage-quit in the bottom lane against a Cho'gath and a Veiger. A good thing too, since our "first blood; double kill" on the bottom was shortly followed by a double kill for the other team on top, and a gank in mid on our Ashe, who was a complete newbie to the game. Our Mundo was pretty terrible as well, always running away from teamfights, but our Katarinna was pretty decent from what I can tell, she just played too aggressively and had bad luck with a lanemate which caused her death. Went 4/0/10 in a 21 minute game. The client crashed before I could see stats but our Akali must have been something like 12/0/8, which for such a short game (and two ragequits) is very impressive.
