I feel that having an understanding of switching forms, I should probably know when to switch and how I can use my kitty advantageously.
Idk what Nidalee's mechanics are for sure and how they'll work with the champions I'm already used to, but feel my feral background has got to help at least a little.
Ultimately my question after that background knowledge: do you think I can transition to Nidalee? I was thinking of buying her at 30, but do you think it'll be too late by then? If 30's too late, at what level do you think I should get Nidalee?
(I can be semi-slow with games sometimes, so don't think I'm typical über gamer awesomeness.)
And not surprisingly, Master Yi will be toned down come Patch 3.11. If only they did this route with Karma's rework, (tune her numbers to be really OP) as she's still has one of the lowest win and usage rates, despite all the buffs she got and her use in the EU LCS successfully.
Nidalee is a fun champion. She's not a top tier pick but still hovers near the mid-top "card" in terms of where she is. She can be built both AP and AD-tank. AP (Ability Power) relies on poking with your spear and healing/trapping area's to increase your siege potential. An AD based build is primarily used for split pushing, and fighting people 1v1. It makes you tankier, makes your cougar form Q + E (I believe) hit harder, and because you're investing in increasing your auto attack damage, makes taking down turrets quite easy, especially if you have a Sheen/Triforce with your Attack speed buff on your heal.
In regards to when you should buy her - It doesn't matter in the slightest. As a new player to LoL, I'd give you the advice that you shouldn't be worrying about which champions to buy, rather than nailing the game mechanics down that will transition to all champions.
A) Learn how to last hit minions, so that you have minimal push to your lane. Last hitting minions will give you a gold advantage over an opponent that can't.
B) Learn how to position in team fights. You want to stay alive as long as possible to do as much damage/peel/tank as possible
C) Learn the timers on objectives. Blue/Red buff = 5 minutes, Dragon = 6 minutes, Baron Nashor = 7 minutes.
D) Slowly get a feel of what each champion can do and how frequently. This will take time. League isn't a rush to the top though. The more knowledge you have, the "easier" the game will become, but it still relies on you having the mechanical skill to take advantage of peoples mistakes
E) Learn how to ward properly and efficiently. Learn the proper ward spots
So basically they're saying he's finally gotten better in higher ranked games, but still stomps low levels which is a problem.Unfortunately, we did not meet one goal we'd hoped to - better in high-ranked games, and not as stompy in low-ranked ones. This is still occurring, which means Yi is in beast mode for a vast majority of players.
I bet they destroy him again.

Rest is pretty much changing depending on your team and enemy etc.

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