    It's been like that for a while. His champion pool hasn't changed much even with the S3 changes making it that ADCs can't single-handly carry games now. I don't recall HotShot playing damage/assassinish champions, he seems to only play tanky initiators. I also heard of the nickname CaughtShotGG from that moment in the CLG/Curse game where he face checked into a bush full of Curse players.

    Now it's a fight between MRN and complexity at who gets the title of being the worst NA team in LCS. I do hope MRN can get their epic comeback play going again like how we saw in the LCS qualifiers.

    Heh. I know HothrowGG is a hundred times better player than I am, but... The screw-ups he spams, along with his online persona, really make for an easy target for negative emotions and rotten tomatoes. ~~

    Heck, I even think ICMPN would be a better top laner for CLG at this rate than CaughtShot. Okay, not really, but it does show how far CaughtShot is in terms of skill from the top laners on other teams.

    Stupid USA and their timezones, why'd I have to miss interesting stuff like Leona jungle?!

    Ah well, there's always VODs, I guess.

    Is there a place to watch the VoDs other than twitch? The load time on riot's twitch page is so poor that I cannot watch the games in a continuous sequence (no, it has nothing to do with my internet).

    To be fair, the spears would have chunked them for significantly less had they built even one MR or HP item. =P

    Even if they built enough tankiness to be dealt half of the spears' effective damage they would still get chunked for 40% a piece.

    Took like 25 mins to do it, but there's the MRN aggression we've been waiting to see!

    Wow. 25th minute, First Blood scored! Finally.

    Gods. This game was not even a stomp. MRN steamrolled over GGU as if it was Co-op vs. AI.

    And that's an 11-0 shutout by MRN over GGU. I don't know what GGU was thinking most of that game, they didn't try to fight for any Dragons/Barons then.

    Wow, MRN just crushed GGU.

    I was expecting Mrn to win, but not in a complete shut out.

    Not an uninteresting game even when you consider the long time it took before the first blood. And 11 - 0 and a 20k gold lead showed how superior they were in that game.

    marn might have a harder time letting nientonsoh just walk into the team after that showing. we'll see how they do against vulcun later. that was surely a fucking stomp though.

    I got excited too, but haven't been any particularly impressive Thresh plays yet. Still a fair bit to go, though.
