This is why I hate Ashe players; Skillshots take a lot of skill, which they probably don't have, and she's not got a lot in way of actual dps skills. Built in slow can be replicated with an item/lizard, volley does so little dps until you stack your damage, and it's high enough level to be "spammable", yet every Ashe player thinks mid is their birth right.

There's a lot of characters that are better mid IMO, but try telling that to the typical Ashe player.

If it makes you feel any better, I fucking hate going mid. I always feel completely out of my depth in mid and would much rather be top or bottom harassing. It's not like I'm exactly slow with my levelling, I'm a damn sight better at harassing than most of the enemy champions I come across, and I last hit well enough that I can generally get decked pretty quickly and start to lay down the pain.

I'm not a TERRIBLE shot with my arrow either, I just can't launch it to the entire other side of the field with any accuracy just yet.

Certain personality stereotypes seem to plague certain characters xD

Every Nidalee I've seen has been a lone wolf/no teamplay at all/charges into 3v1 and expects to win then rages at us for not providing support when she dies, without exception.

Is that like how every Eve I've seen seems to have ingested quite an amount of lead based paint in their youth?

I just downloaded this last night, going to put a little time in this weekend (but man... my DK is ALMOST 80 and ready to put on a shit ton of crafted/BoE hotness)

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.
