    As for what order to build things it's really up in the air and depends on the situation outside of getting your tear first. You could also go for a RoA after tear if you really think you can get away with it, but I think it takes too much gold and delays getting certain items too long. I would say go for a Sheen and then Glacial shroud if your dominating your lane, and if you aren't then go for a glacial shroud first. I wouldn't really play Taric against AP top because that just makes his free armor bonus and ability to rush armor items pointless. An early Wit's end isn't really that potent if you don't have your mana items to buff your passive up.

    Taric as a bruiser has a lot of build paths though, so I'm interested to see what becomes standard for it. I think Zekent at least will probably become interested in taric top considering it fits his style of picking underplayed things like Karma/AP Janna/Poppy. Taric definitely has damage while building tanky now though, so I think he at least has a spot as a fun pick.

    It's funny how at the level where pro players play at, nobody makes as much of a fuss about picks compared to everywhere else. TheOddOne currently playing jungle Taric in ranked and is currently 4/0/2. I have to make it perfectly clear that I'm going taric top multiple times and then after a couple dodges I'll get into a game. Some people didn't even know about the changes to Taric and thought I was going AP.

    The other sad thing about this is people make a big fuss out of these kinds of unconventional builds even in blind normals. (I'm not talking about actual troll builds such as AP Garen, of course.) People make it off as if someone wanting to play mana bruiser Taric like the above, or a less-used champion such as Fiora or Karma is suddenly considered to be a toxic player and a troll.

    On another note, is anyone having issues with logging on the official LoL website? Tried to login to it to do Tribunal cases, but the site says that the login part is down for some reason.

    I kind of hate when people say this. How exactly are you suppose to try something out in a bot or custom game? Normals are perfectly fine for testing out new builds, etc, so long as you do your best. The only way you can improve something is by playing it a lot and that means playing against people.

    Apparently a game-breaking bug has been discovered that involves Tryndamere and Xerath.



    For those of you who want an explanation, if Tryndamere uses his E spin and spins into an enemy Xerath's Q particles when he's casting it, he'll get credit for getting CS. This sounds very similar to the supposed bugs with things such as Anivia's wall and Jarvan's ult, where the walls were supposedly re-skinned minions, thus leading to some unusual behavior such as Sejuani's Q being able to push the walls to the side.

    The question now is, which of the two champions will Riot have to disable until they fix this? On one hand, I was leaning more towards Trynd because his E has always had weird bugs with it, (i.e, supposedly, it can destroy Teemo mushrooms) but that would piss off the people that want to play AP Trynd (it still works, but requires keeping Fury up for the heal to actually be noticable), and low level/skill-bracket players where melee ADs such as him are common. On the other hand, aside from the recent surge in Xerath play due to several players using him in LCS, he seems to be the lesser played of the two, and disabling the less-played champion in these types of situations is the way Riot goes. One example being the bug where if Viktor and Annie were both in the same game, Annie would be unable to level or use her ult, so Riot disabled Viktor until the next patch because he had a lower % use rate.

    Looks like it's going to turn into League of the Ruined King now. The problem with it before was that it was a big item that didn't give you any attack speed so it delayed buying attack speed and didn't scale with AD abilities. Now that it has attack speed and the cutlass is cheap to buy, it seems like everybody who can use it is rushing it. I suppose it's nice for Irelia to finally have an awesome item for her to make up for her old items getting nerfed, but I see a lot of ADCs getting it as a first item also.

    The active is amazing if you use it on a tank for a huge burst of health and movement speed, or can be used on anybody just for the 15% max health damage/slow. Even without the active you have a massive amount of life steal. It's pretty much Mandred's Blood Razor done right now. It even counters health stacking and forces tanks to build armor instead.

    May be too powerful though for its item cost. Wouldn't be the first time they made the mistake of making an item too good after changing it so not too surprising and if it turns out to be true they will eventually do something about it like they did with warmogs and black cleaver.

    Xerath is more likely to be banned than trynd, but I'm not sure, if they got off their asses and hotfix'd it, it would be fine, instead of doing annieVSviktor and taking 2 weeks.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Not sure if you know the difference between a hot fix and a patch or not, but my guess is you don't. Hot fixes are simple number changes that don't need additional testing. Patches take time. This would be the latter.

    Yeah every game I get "Huh? Taric top? Rofl you fucking troll".

    Just to be the only 1 not being completely shit at the game. My advice, people don't whine you play Taric top? You won the game. People start shouting you're trolling etc? You got a team full of feeders.

    Edit:

    What runes and masteries do you guys prefer on Taric top? Currently I have Armor + MR + Movement Speed with a 9/21 build.

    For now I went with MPen/Arm/MR/MS w/ 9/21

    Just a quick fix until I get a few more games in to really figure out what's working best.

    Eh, stupid matchmaking, I quit. I was close to Gold III and started to having noobs in teams, ppl were failing hard, never surrender so I was just quitting or afking (browsing the net) as I hate wasting time on pointless fights. Now I am Gold V 0 points and had level leaver 3, I got unbanned...played a little and again I have morons in teams so I just left the game and uninstalled, I dont care if I have perma-ban. Fix the matchmaking instead of feeders who blame support....

    It's sick that the game punishes leavers/afker more than offensive/noobs playing rankeds...I will never accept this course of action, bye bye game for kids.

    Better invent a system where if somebody leaves, game will shutt down and reward players according to the state just before the leave. Simple concept, easy to write, time saved, everybody is happy. The ones unhappy will be "I wanted to own these 4 and have insane score..." but those deserve ban.

    Why to play a game if there is no point or chance to have balanced team fight? Waste of time.

    No offense, but leavers and afkers are generally the more toxic of the types of players listed :/

    People that go AFK tend to have a much larger impact on the game than those who curse and flame. You can mute someone who flames etc., you can't magically bring back someone who goes AFK.

    I can't mute while playing rankeds... so I just had to move the chat that I wont see it. Overall, game is bad.

    And like I said, I wrote the concept of what to do in case of afk/lever...simple and the best option. But it must be too hard for LoL devs to invent...as they lack iq comparing them to any other developer. They just mindlessly make money on poor kids.

    Well,you're not different from them either, afking/leaving will cost games as much as playing with noobs.
    You can make comeback with noobs in team, but you won't make it 4v5.

    Excuse me, are you saying something? Nah, you can't tell me nothing
