    Thing is, in that game they didn't play him like a jungler. He got blue buff and then pretty much just sat in lane.

    Yorick was a decent 2v1 laner already and with blue buff his sustain and shoving is insane. Now add an Aatrox and things just turn real ugly real fast.

    If anyone wants another interesting game from the World's Group stages, I suggest OMG vs TSM, with particular attention to OMG San's and comA's pick.

    What is so interesting about Fiddle/Cait? What did I miss?

    Nothing special, far as I know.

    Had to go top lane, we needed tankiness and Jax was already taken... Top lane Shyvana it is. Highest farm in the game and 5/0/6 kda

    Nothing special there either.

    Syndra was played during the LCS already. Volibear was an extremely popular pick for a while.

    The way Voli went on a rampage was surprising though.

    What does that have to do with San and comA?

    Sidenote, the way you worded it, you suggested that it was the AD carry / support pick which was interesting.

    Just played a Vi jungle game and, while I need to work on playing her mechanically... DEAR LORD she is strong.

    Fnatic pls

    they didn't take their opponents seriously and whipped out some more fun things that they knew would work
    that's what I get from their picks

    So I've discovered my problem. I have 3 playstyles: 2 when ahead and 1 when behind. When ahead, I either play really passive with my advantage because I'm terrified of a gank or I play super aggressive when ahead and get ganked. First one generally loses me my turret, second generally snowballs it in the other direction. When behind, I try too hard to get back in and fall further behind.

    Fnatic pls

    That's just an experience thing. Keep playing and you should improve. One important thing, a lot of people seem to forget, is that you can influence your power a lot with your item build. For example an early haunting guise will usually delay your late game power but vastly boost your mid game which might compensate for the other mid lane being ahead (for example winning a dragon fight because you deal more damage) and turn the game around.

    The other thing is: wards. You don't need tons of it, just strategically well placed ones. Knowing where your enemy is, makes plays possible (for a mid laner: burst your enemy down when he goes for wraiths or tries to gank (if you are too weak, you can still warn your bot/top), a top might all in when you see their jungler in the bot jungle etc).

    Well they did have a pure objective based teamcomp there indeed, which was quite hilarious to see.

    But I'm playing him like a jungler now and it's quite fun in todays assassin comps. See them waste all their burst on a carry which then simply revives. I'm liking it tbh, but like I said, I like Yorick overall, eventhough his skills aren't mindblowing.

    (Have you heard the voice, it's just awesome.)

    My problem in top lane: Oh I got him low I can take this guy. Minions OP #420 blaezf4got etc.

    50%: Woop, got his ass, time to whoop some more.
    other 50%: Shit, he got away on 30 hp, and my lane is pushing into my tower. How did I miss that?

    Imma try and watch it a bit more.

    I got really frustrated by a bunch of people who, afterwards, complained that I didn't follow a Kat all the way to botlane as Vlad while they were overextending. Twice. On their turret. 4v5.
    Don't mind my triple farm and 2 pushed towers. Just keep feeding Yi.

    Bah, I played so well that game, until the point they got too strong for me as well. Lost because of no communication, no cohesion. Such a waste.

    Got him ages ago as well as the Pentakill skin. He's just totally awesome. Horrendous to play against though.

    Fun thing that when i was leveling my main account, i've picked yorick on free week and stomped everyone with it. I thought it was not funny to stomp everyone and decided to not buy him
