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.
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.
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
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.

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.
Just queue'd this morning right after the server restart with the patch - I guess there weren't many people online because I just got matched with these guys :P
I got carried pretty hard :P
Also, Best Riven NA will never cease to surprise me. That build :O
For a few pages ago
Lucian is my go to AD right now. His poke is amazing when you learn to do it right.There is also a special report category which does not create a Tribunal case, but affects matchmaking instead:
Unskilled Player - If you feel that a Summoner is not playing well - such as not last hitting, not using the right skills, having the wrong build, and having poor map awareness, you can report that player for being unskilled.

Opinions on how to build new Olaf?
Spirit Visage seems pretty core. Hexdrinker might be overkill in combo. Probably Randuin's as armour item.
Felt fun to run down an Ezreal and dish out damage. The axe changes are huge and finally let Olaf run people down like he was meant to do. Not sold on him glowing red during his ult though.
Why would you build new Olaf any differently?
Max CDR (SV+Shurelyas is win), Hexdrinker, Tabi, Randuins
Just adjust build order based on lane opponent / who on the enemy team is strong. No AP Threat? Build Thornmail / Sunfire instead of Hexdrinker.
Hydra is a complete waste of money.

He scales way more with AD than Health with the update. That's why.
Liking the Garen VU, I don't understand the changes to Judgement though, this is taken from the LoL wiki:
"Judgment can critically strike, multiplying Judgment's AD ratio by half of Garen's critical strike damage modifier. "
wtf does that mean and how is it any different from a normal crit
A normal crit is 200%. An IE crit is 250%.
In the first case, Garen's Judgment would do 150% damage.
I wanted to ask if it was safe to ranked qeue with olaf and katarina changes, but then I saw EUW had server issues...
Guess today I will play terraria and it's new update.
