    Always worth a try, I'd imagine. Heck, I've seen Sona jungle before, even if it went awful for the poor thing. ^_^

    I usually find in my games that people are pretty fine with unorthodox choices, though. Guess you just need to prove to the world that it works.

    I honestly don't see how bad it could go.

    His kit is pretty amazing against anyone, I honestly don't see it would be bad for him to go mid.
    Guess I'll just try!! I don't think he can pull off the level 3 insta-gibs that Talon does, but. :P

    I've seen a Soraka jungle once, she was the best.

    You don't need to kill people in lane, atleast when your jungler isn't there. And I'm pretty sure he can do more than Talon can do in mid.

    Talon just goes in, either kills after poking, a lot, or he doesn't, and I think Jayce is better at both killing and/or going in to kill.

    Y, y, was just saying that the playstyle would be different, ahah. I feel like with Jayce I'm going to have a lot of chances to roam considering how good he can farm and how many champs he counters. Good thing normals exist for testing!

    I think it's more a matter of your personal skill than Annie's mechanics if you can't play with her stun down. you can always get the stun up unless you're at 0 stacks going Q-W-E-TIBBERS. unless you manual cast this can be done in literally a flash.

    doing so will turn most ganks around unless you're in late game due to the simple fact that Annie is a burst mage. Tibbers has the added bonus as serving as a personal shield that is going to soak pretty much all skillshots aimed at you while doing some fairly heavy damage with his aura and auto attacks.

    even IF you didn't turn it around right there and then you still have 1.75s to leg it.

    overall she's a fun champion to play and she's usually vastly underestimated due to the simple fact that people know about orianna's/lux's/nidalee's damage, but they rarely see Annies and are therefore a bit in the blind.

    I wonder how long it'll take before mid is for everyone.

    It seems damn close. We've seen AD bruisers/assasins go mid (Xin, Kha'Zix, Talon), and typical AP mages go mid, whether of the burst, sustained, or utility categories. Now we need to bring back the meta of supports and the AD carries going mid.

    Finally got to play Nidalee a few times since the pre-season patch(in normals anyway, not arams). She's really fun with new items, built her tanky bruiser-ish; every team fight would just jump in and sit on the enemy adc, wouldn't die either.
    In the game I actually managed to get more than a few items in, I went Ninja Tabi(was against Garen in lane, so built those), Warmogs, Spirit Visage, Iceborn Gauntlet, Black Cleaver, and Last Whisper(just built LW at the end real quick, didn't have money for anything else and was about to teamfight).

    Also managed to get in 10 or so games in a row of nothing but wins. Streak was ended mainly due to half of our team getting bad lag in-game during fights.

    I'm kinda meh about it, but only because I already have Reverse Annie, and Lu Bu J4 and Zhao Yun XZ are more on my wishlist.

    Mercs > Ninja against Garen IMO. Shorter silence = less damage taken because you can jump away sooner.

    Also, Black Cleaver on Nidalee isn't all that great. Most of her abilities deals Magic Damage, so it'd be like taking BC on Vayne. Your AA and Q as Nidalee will only apply the effect (W and E = magic afaik).

    I'd problaly grab a Sunfire or BT instead.

    Implied, of course! But on that skin it's like he's looking into my soul and saying "I'm going to fuck you from the inside". I've been told this one too many times now not to be frightened.

    Let the AP Ezreals flood soloq like a locust swarm.

    Seriously though I actually always like AP Ezreal and I'm happy to see him played by a pro. I always felt his animations just didn't feel like an ADCs and for some reason that made me have problems playing him as one. Only solution would be using pulsefire and I'm not paying that much to solve a minor problem.
