Is it better to build up Power Ball and try to hit near the end of the timer, or does it even make a difference? I was definitely enjoying Powerball and his taunt (kept them from running for that last sliver of health) and Amumu's Ult is great for finishing as well (though the guides suggest it's better used for initiating, so maybe I should consider adjusting my play there.) Still working on my aim with skillshots. I can usually hit something but hitting my intended target is probably about 50/50 atm. Granted, this is against bots, so that could become easier/harder against real people.

Wasn't sure if it was one of those things that "charging" it caused it to do more damage.

Actually I think Varus' Q ability is one of the only abilities in the game that does that.

Ok, so, last night, was playing Ashe and managed to get mid (I was the last to move down a lane and nobody had taken it.) What's the big appeal of wanting mid? I guess solo farming is better gold (assuming you can last hit properly) but is there really anything more to it?

You're within reach of both of the other two lanes, so it's much easier to roam and Rolf your way to easy ganks (meta says that it's generally the ap carry that goes mid, I imagine roaming as an ad carry is harder being reliant on auto attacks and all)

I have a terrible habit of jumping accounts on a whim, but I dumped some $$ into getting a couple of champions I know I can play decently on my latest so I imagine I'll be sticking with it fora while. kiai112

Currently I'm probably best with Diana, but give me a game or two to work some rust out and I can play a decent Ahri, Shen, J4, AD Kayle (admittedly this one is more of a jungle trick so I can't really do it until I get some levels back and have access to appropriate jungle runes) and if I absolutely have to play ad carrot my best bets probably Sivir.

I was going to assume that's what was meant, but I've seen weirder things, so wanted to make sure.

Except the easier roaming a solo lane is also more experience. in the actual meta there is one person per lane who farms (last hits) and one in jungle. The fith person is a supporter and should not farm if there is someone else in range. so you have 3 solo farm lanes and the jungle and thereby in mid not more to farm. but because you are really alone in the lane, the experience isn't diveded.

Not going to lie, twitch and eve are hilariously fun for pubstomping. Getting kind of keen to play a lane with you on Leona now that I'm back to fighting form with her. Should be funsies with leonas ability to make peopl not move ever if i can land my initiate properly, and she's better than Shen at no farm supporting. Should be a cakewalk if we jump on vent and coordinate properly.

Things I learned today:

Skye has the makings of a good lol player, just needs to work on his timing and positioning more which comes with practice.

I should absolutely not play LoL when I'm tired and my reactions are slow. I was rubbish in the last few games and couldn't land a zenith strike or solar flare if my life depended on it. Dear god that was brutal. I missed their Morgana and Sona more times than I can count, which usually resulted in multiple deaths instead of multiple kills.

Good Fiddles are fucking scary. Like wow day fiddles carried. Hard.

Just fallen back in love with Maokai jungle again. Took a lesson from TheOddOne and rushed boots of mobilty, unnofficially aced the team in under 3 mins with ganks. Though by the end of the game ezreal had managed to perfect his arcane shift + flash combo resulting in me getting dragged along for miles, fun but irritating. I need to play more of him and shyv in ranked, keep getting teams that do no damage mid-late game, maokai can pack a punch mid game. Shyv is just my favouritist dragonlady ever, but the lack of real ganking potential early puts me off in ranked, same with skarner.

Might have just been the team I was going up against, but had some fun with Amumu. Started out getting a few early kills (just barely missed First Blood) and by the end of the match, I was easily surviving 2v1, and usually surviving 3v1. Kill count wasn't amazing, but I still had fun.

Memo for me: When the ranked karma decides to fuck you over, it's done.
First game: Jax top, 4/0 in 10 minutes,
Meanwhile, the combined score of the botlane is 0/19.
Second game: Jax top, 3/0 in 10 minutes, with no friendly ganks, #1 in CKs of both teams.
Botlane has given 9 kills and gotten none, the jungler is crashing repeteadly, and the mid is 0/5/0.

Grr, I hate soloqueue. It's so damned hard to communicate in champ select when people just don't talk until you have 10 secs left to pick your champ. Just had to dodge a queue after asking Xin and Ali if they were jungling, ali said no, xin didn't reply, so I assumed he was gonna go top as he didn't have smite. So I picked Shyvana then Xin and the mid he queued with both raged at me... Fucking learn how to type then. I don't know if the amount of languages in europe is part of it, but people only speak to rage at someone... I don't think anyone realises that through half decent communication rage can be avoided 99% of the time. /facedesk

Ok, so someone please explain to me how runes work...

Do I buy each type once and can use them as often as I want?

Is each rune usable once per rune page?

Does each rune only fill one slot, so I'll ultimately have to spend a shit ton of IP/RP to fill out multiple rune pages?
