    Botkr or BT? PD or Shiv after? I really am not seeing what I should build on him now lol. Probably just pure AD because of his Q.

    I've decided to ban out Yi in every ranked game I can now. Not because I don't know how to deal with him, but I can't trust my team to know how.

    It probably was a server hiccup, But it annoyed me to no end though. As it caused me to lose the game with no loss forgiven. It was going on for about 20 to 30 minutes. So yeah.

    SS instead. Q ramps up the shiv a lot.

    It's ridiculous how my brother is on Yi. He just started playing and in week 2 of playing he was dominating on Yi his 2nd day buying him. Makes my Kass look like a little kid.
    Yi is currently (like Riot says) a pubstomper in low elo, and mediocre in high elo. As in, better people know how to handle him.
    I won a game with Yi simply by constantly pushing a lane while they were off chasing others, and only sending 1 back wasn't enough as Yi is an extreme dueller now.

    Also, the "thing" with LoL is: a lot of people know a lot of things, but can't necessarily apply them. Look at analysts/casters, they know a lot about the game, but not all of them are good at it. I myself don't play ranked, mostly normals, and do fairly well. But with a lot of games, including WoW, I have a lot of theoretical knowledge. Except with WoW I was a lot better at putting it to practice

    Not saying CM Punk isn't ranked (I have no idea) just that you can know what to do without actually being able to do it (very well) in the game

    My input on Nidalee is: AD is mostly dead with the nerfs to her cougar form, AP is still VERY strong. You play AP Nidalee by sieging the enemy with your long range spears (the further away, the more damage) as they can do up to ~70% of a carries HP if you get slightly ahead. And your catform is for kiting/assassinating, as you will be too squishy to go in close. You would win games by poking your enemy down BEFORE engaging, so this might be tricky on lower levels of play as they are always very eager to jump in

    SS for sure, using Q (i dont have exact numbers) is like halfway to complete charge.

    I have been rushing BT or IE (depending on how fed) before BoTRK because of how hard he scales with AD.

    I have had games where I got a kill or two early, got an IE- and when the first team fight rolled around I alpha'd and killed their ADC and alpha'd again for a quadra.

    Absurd.

    There was a post on REddit not too long ago going over the theory in damage between BT and BotRK, also IE and SotD and some others. In the end, BT (and IE to some extent) seemed like the weaker choices.

    Also, I might be doing my promotional matches soon (at long last). What happens if I dodge here?

    If you dodge in a promo then it's counted as a loss.

    Yeah here is the article:
    http://leagueoflegendramble.wordpres...2013/08/03/95/

    In theory AA'ing constantly BoTRK is a higher DPS, with a cheap cost. Problem is I play mostly Silver 1, bottom of the barrel gold kids that will CC me if I try to get in and AA. So I have been going the IE, SS, SotD crit build where with ult, I can rip 2-3 alpha's in a row.

    Basically I have fiora's ult that I can spam as long as I time it right, and I'm GOING to kill at least 2 squishies.

    Thing is, BoRK can be built in increments which are very cheap. The most expensive part is 1k for the final combine cost. Saving up for a BF sword may well set you back too much, especially in a losing lane.

    Oh sorry I meant placement matches (first 10) Any idea how these work?

    Leaving is a loss, dodging is not but it lowers your placement by a small amount.

    Where can I find pro plays picks/bans list? Or champ 'tiers'?

    Check the LCS thread, Mionelol linked the pick/bans for the LCS for the last 2 seasons in there.

  18. #34058
    I want recent ones, from s3. I've heard that Nami is pretty popular now.

  19. #34059
    Reign of Gaming does a tier list, whether its applicable to LCS I don't know, but Elementz used to be an LCS pro, so try there I guess

    Well there might be some threads that have those lists, I'm pretty sure there are threads on teamliquid.net that link you to liquipedia (or leaguepedia, not sure in which of those wikis it is) which should have the picks (and maybe bans) of most LCS games.

    Regarding Nami, I'd say she's pretty much the second most played support right now, only Thresh is even more contested. Besides Nami and Thresh, there is only Zyra, some Sona and a couple of Fiddlesticks games I think. Most other supports are barely, if ever, played.
