    If it's like that and works in ranked, then it would be really abused so I hope it doesn't work there assuming it does for other modes.
    According to the Wiki

    When players are reported for "Unskilled Player", no tribunal case is made, however if the player is reported for being unskilled consecutively, their Match-Making-Rating will slightly drop. This does not affect ranked matchmaking or players ranked Elo/MMR. This option is mainly used as a placebo for players that are acting negatively towards their teammates.

    So your reasoning is that a champ that relies on damage to be useful should delay their damage items since they are already doing bad?

    If you are in such a hurry to become useless just straight out pick support katarina and don't give your team false hope

    950gold. 475 for a Ruby Crystal. Leaves enough gold for 6 wards and change.

    Why on earth would you waste another 475 gold on a sightstone when the remainder of the cash will take care of your sight issues for the next 10 minutes, which likely is all of the laning phase?

    And you can even turn that Ruby Crystal into a Haunting Guise, which will give you some defense and damage.

    No, it's not.

    Your primary goal is to deal damage and become tank-ish.

    Get Haunting Guise for HP and damage. Get a Giant's Belt if you need to be tanky and survive.

    Do not buy Sightstone.

    Majad is all about that Portuguese Katarina meta.
    Hey everyone

  7. #35827
    As a Katarina you rely on killing people and getting resets. I don't see a sightstone in the equation.

    But hey, if it's your game style, go for it! (probably still better than AD Kata)

    God dang its hard to find a semi casual team for ranked >_< Every damn team that seems good is already full

    Actually, i always thought that team should be able to have more than 5 players in it. Like, some people to pick from to play

    I will buy a SS if i'm playing Shen top though, since i'm already playing the support tanking initiator type of role for my team, wards and extra health is also useful.

    And moreever, your support in games isn't like your typical asian support buying nothing but sightstone and wards. usually they will only get 1 ruby ss, therefore my extra ss will help. However if i'm top, i won't upgrade the SS though.

    You might end up having to do that anyways because your support happens to be a Nidalee that only builds AP. Even then, a Sightstone will set you so far behind assuming you're not a support-ish champ like Nunu, or a Lee Sin.

    Dont bother with Ranked 5vs5 the matchmaking seems kinda borked.

    We had 1 Diamond, 1 Plat, 1 Gold and 2 Silvers and get matched against almost full Diamond teams in our FIRST GAMES on a new team. I'd understand the 5th matchmaking game being like that but the first one? Really? Beat Diamonds 5 times to get placed in Gold V, yay!

    Only good thing is that laning against diamond/high plat bot-lanes is really making me up my game as a Support :P Playing against Dia 1 Vayne and Plat 1 Tresh was an eyeopening experience to say the least. My yolo-que bot-lanes feel kinda easy after those games, haha.

    Its ok, i run a shen top with teleport/flash. So i usually get quite a fair bit of assist gold from helping out in other lanes. That's where the 950 goes to and since i consider myself to be more of a support initiator role shen its fine for my built. Anyway late game, having more wards will never be a bad thing. especially if the jungler doesn't help to ward as well which i have no idea why.

    And most of the time, i can rarely get a 1v1 kill all by myself at top lane especially when im facing the likes of garen, renekton etc. So it just becomes a boring farmfest anyway.

    Nope, it isn't. It matches you by the highest ranked player in your team. You had diamond player in your team, you get full diamond team against you. It would take too long to wait for "1 D, 1 P, , 1 G and 2 S" team to pop up.

    Well shit.

    That makes sense since it looks like our guys won the last 4 games (I was there for first win) during the night and got the team to Gold IV Our Diamond IV guy wasnt there for this team so from the looks of it they were matched against gold/plat players this time which equals easy wins

    Now to just get Gold in 3vs3 and YoloQue and I'll have Gold in all 3 brackets

    We tried to make our own 5v5 team with friends, but because we are 2 bronze, 2 silver and 1 diamond, we got placed against full diamond teams. Well, it's not that bad, because after little talk to some of them in after-game lobby, they said that they had a very long losing streaks . So, i don't really know.

    Also, from 3v3 perspective, the Yoricks ghools give you 5+3 gold now. I doubt riots thought about it when they did this, and Yorick won't be picked soon. Also, nerfing Wukong passive to the ground is way too much for 3v3 IMO. And they did wrong thing to "nerf" his ult cooldown, because, from my experience, i use my (Wu) ult only in chokes when fighting 3vX, so, having 10 seocnds more CD on level 3 ult (when enemy respawns like 50 seconds, and usually, one ace at level 16 with two survivors from your team makes a game) makes no difference. They should nerf his mana costs (mana regen in 3v3 map is buffed, that's why Wu is that strong here, he can poke enemy like twice as much), or mana regen, but not cooldowns.

    Again, useless.

    That 975 could've been a head start to a spirit visage (kindlegem) or sunfire (giant's belt). Both offer more health and/or CDR. Shen needs those items to do what he is supposed to do: tank the entire friggin' team and split push till infinity (or the game ends).

    Long story short: stop buying Sightstone on anyone not Lee Sin or Support. You're wasting your money.

    God I hate Lucian botlane. It's like your supporting half an AD carry really. Now having a Lucian use his only escape to engage a Leona isn't all that either I presume.

    Incoming mid Katarina week ftl.

    Poor Lucian, loved his lore and his art but his kit and strength is just meh. Jinx on the other hand seems super strong right now on the PBE.
