    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.

    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

    Argh nooooo! As much as I like Slash and guitars and shit, such skins just don't do it for me.

    I use his Undertaker skin, which is DA BOOOMMMBBB.

    I noticed some discussions about Yorick going on earlier in this thread, and I can't really be bothered to search for all the details, but I have a question regarding jungle Yorick.

    Would it be viable? All he has is a slow in forms of CC. Does this still make him a viable jungler? I'm expecting his sustain in the jungle to be top notch, so that shouldn't really be the main issue.

    The way the chinese team used him was different from a normal jungler, which shores up some of his weaknesses. They just got him a few levels + blue and then shoved down objective after objective.

    I don't think he really does a lot in any other form of team comp, though he can be used in a Res Vayne sort of comp, I suppose.

    --

    Finally got bothered to finish the placement matches. Jarvan 4 to the rescue, because I was pretty damn sure the last match was lost from champ pick.

    Twitch, Maokai, Tryndamere, Yi, J4 vs Lee Sin, Vayne, Volibear, Evelynn, Nidalee.
    Team starts raging in champ select already. Maokai + Trynda are apparently duo queueing and take bot lane, sending Twitch mid. Yi is raging from start to finish and the entire chat is filled with 'report team!' He clears my lane with Alpha strike and bitches when I take his golems in return in the meanwhile. That changes after we get a few kills on the enemy Evelynn and scare off Volibear (who apparently went top) a bit.

    Hardest I had to work so far for a win. It helped the Vayne was absolutely atrocious.

    Well, LoveLin played jungle Yorick a couple of days ago, dorans blade start is obviously no problem with Yoricks sustain, but he played him more as a secondary laner that basically went into the 2v1 lane after double buffs and just bullied the enemy botlane out and then zoned them (there really doesn't seem much that they could do vs a blue buff Yorick + other laner), but your ganks really arent great.

    The commentators did talk about his jungle Yorick on day 1 of worlds iirc, and said that if he doesn't just lane together with his toplaner, that he would usually try to fight the enemy jungler a lot, as he has the strong dorans blade start and the sustain to back up a lot of skirmishes, which the other jungler will most likely not have.

    So if you have a coordinated group that doesn't really rely on ganks to survive in lane, he can work. For soloqueue, probably not that much.

    Werent you bitching about all the Diamond V trolls earlier before you got up to IV, though? :P
    At least you'll get a chance to improve by playing with Diamond 1s!

    I find playing Normals or ranked 5s with my Plat friends a lot more fun than my Silver YoloQue adventures, at least :P So satisfying when you beat a double Plat botlane as Gold ADC and Silver Support ^^

    I've managed to get to gold V in soloq, then i've dropped to silver V due to ~25 loss streak by duoqueing with friends (one is major flamer, other played bullshit like "vi support", third was "only nautilus" player), then get back to silver I (thanks to my wife, she carried me from yolomid trolls), and dropped back to silver II. I don't want to play with my friends anymore

    Well in my case my friends are miles better than me (I've played for barely 6 months, a few of them have played since Beta) :P Though I do have a few of "that kind" of friends as well :P One is a guy whos in Bronze III and isnt that good with the game and always gives up and starts raging whenever he doesnt stomp his lane... "Ehmegerd I died once our Jungler is so bad we lost this now".

    I just dropped to Silver II myself. I was at 75 LP at best in Silver I but got a streak of 6 losses under my belt which ended up dropping me down :P My last game at 0 LP we had no AD carry with Leona+Veigar BOT-lane.

    I was supposed to go Support but this guy after me told me he can only play Support and instalocked Leona so I ended up going Zyra MID which wasnt that bad as I was ike 9/3/something at one point but we still lost cause our BOT fed their Corki like 10 kills :P

    Luckily one of my Plat friends is most likely gonna be playing his brothers account to gold soon (who is Silver II) so I can probably duo with him and get slightly carried :P But that way we can have 2 lanes that wont lose which will most likely win us almost all the games.

    A small bit of news, a new ggLA roster of bischu, Quas, Otter, NydusHerMain, and Kor Kez has been formed as a challenger team. This is coming off the news that Arthelon and Nydus are no longer part of TBD.
