    I am not too familiar with the players and their play styles yet to make a correct judgement on that.

    That thread is an example of e-sport having a long way to go to be called a proper sport.

    PL is looking to make things grow within the LoL community. He said he's got things in the works (tourneys and such), so these donations go to further those goals. It's not like people are throwing money at PL and he's just going to use it on himself.

    And sports fans are civil about things? Afaik there isn't some major american football forum, but if there was I can imagine that there would be a lot of bashing and stuff. And Regi claimed their victory was easy. So what, Dig said it was going to be a simple 2-0. Trashtalking is no new concept in terms of sports. It's probably worse in "real" sports.

    Boxing is a prime example of trashtalking to the max. Trashtalking for the most part isn't because they hate the other team but more for intimidation, granted they may hate the team or certain individuals on it but that's usually a personal thing. It generally is to get fans riled up and incite rivalry.

    I guarantee that a midst all the trashtalk some of the professionals are friends outside of LoL.

    Tbh it wont even matter, M5 humilated TSM so hard last time that you just know all you need to see is M5 vs TSM again and Regi will be sitting there eating humble pie.

    Although saying that Id like to see him against Froggens Anivia, I wanna see Regi cocky enough to not ban out Anivia and then get facerolled into the floor. Regi is so far behind the APs for other teams now, he is incapable of carrying his team if theyre having a bad game, he only does well when the rest of his team does well. In fact imo most of TSMs results seem to hinge on Dyrus, if he does bad top they'll lose, if he wins top they'll win. Not saying Dyrus is the biggest player there its just a general trend for TSM.

    I dunno, did Graves get buffed? I'm doing normals and just rofling to victory. I have to buy him. It's just sick really.

    He was actually heavily nerfed from what he was before in the last patch... So much, is irony the word?

    I dunno, I had a bad string of luck. I solo queue mostly. I'm 1300 player at least, so playing normals as 1300 player is rofling? I dunno. I haven't played in awhile.

    If you stay around 1300 then normals from my experience seem to be quite easy and I use them to learn a new champion that I've never played or just came out. Depending on the champion play style I find certain ones are easy to learn and can be great even on the first time (in normals granted) and beat the person(s) in your lane.

    Like I said, I dunno. This game is easy but hard to master. So any champion has its ups and downs. Though from what I am looking at, 10/3, 8/2, 15/5, 10/3(loss), 9/1, and 8/2 is something worth investigating. I like to think that the Champ is overpowered, than I am good at anything. I suck.

    That's what I came to investigate. Graves it seems, has EPIC burst damage. Tornado, Buckshot, and Ult within a couple of second is retarded. If you are even Forrest Gump retarded and can last hit, you can get IE and PD within 20 mins. Then the game is over, if your team is competent.

    My point was people taking small things too seriously. If you would say the same thing in other sports, people would display your entire history of fucks up right in front of you. When I say it's too far away from being a real sport because the fans aren't "real" and knowledgeable enough. Eg. in football, if a player trash talks, the fans just humiliate him return. E-sports mostly consists of teenagers who don't know shit and take things way too seriously. These things are supposed to laughed at.

    I think TSM's results depends on two people doing good, Oddone and Choax (however you spell his name). It's Oddone who normally helps Dyrus stream roll. Dyrus is brilliant no doubt and one of the humble ones (tbh I think all of TSM is humble except Regi, that guy just screams arrogance for some reason), but he needs help many times. Against Westrice, it was Oddone fucking him over, not Dyrus himself. Choax just wins the game after getting some farm. Xpecial defo makes his job easier, but Choax is an amazing carry. So many times he is able to take care of himself all by himself. If you notice in teamfights, sometimes he gets ahead, gets a kill or two and gets out alive (or continue killing). Overall Dyrus, Choax, Oddone and Xpecial are very adaptable, Regi to me feels like a one trick pony most of the time. ALOT of people can play Morgana very well not just him, so whatever he does on her, doesn't really feel anything special.

    Yeah, out of TSM, I like Dyrus the most. He just seems laid-back and cool to me. Although half the time, I can't tell if he's high or not.
    On the flipside, I can't stand Reginald. I don't think I've seen someone who simply LOOKS like a troll as much as him. And that's not taking his attitude into account...

    Regi is the only guy on TSM I don't like. Dyrus is awesome, Chaox and Oddone are (almost) always in control, and I have no clue about exSpecial since I haven't seen much of him stream and vlog wise.

    I don´t like regi that much but atleast he backs up the trash talk with results. As douchy it is saying the finals were a stomp, it was completely true. Tbh the NA scene would be pretty pathetic without TSM. Except for that one game with Curse TSM stomped everyone. Kinda shows how weak the NA scene is compared to Korea if the best NA team gets stomped by Azubu blaze that easily.

    Yah, same with hockey. Maybe not with the players as much, but certainly with the fans. I swear half the people that go to hockey games just want to see a fight. Or watch someone get slammed into the wall.

    I would say the same goes with sc2, but it's not the same. It's such a mannered game. The koreans are especially mannered, and most of the other pros adopt the same attitude. Even Idra who is known for raging and stuff is apparently a really nice guy that a lot of the pros actually like. He just rages when he plays sometimes. Though I honestly haven't seen much of him lately.

    Heavily nerfed? They toned his base AS and took 10% AS off of each level of quickdraw. He felt pretty much the same to me. I could really feel the nerf on ezreal, since his W was no longer just amazing, but it wasn't too bad. To me graves is still graves. They didn't nerf his burst or his mobility, but only slightly reduced his endgame AS.
