Although the first kill from me was just due to him pulling a full minion wave while fighting me, if it wasn't for that I wouldn't have got him.
People often underestimate minions early game.
Anyways, I tried Vlad and while he is fun.....
I don't know, he doesn't seem very strong, not weak either.
I am thinking about buying him.
I'll agree to that about minions, I underestimate them a lot.
"Don't worry guys I can get him."
two seconds later
"WHERE IS ALL THIS DAMAGE COMING FROM?"
900 basic attack from minions. :\
How fitting that it happened to a Teemo.

I love normal games for the fact that you can do silly stuff and people don't mind most times. GP + Soraka bot lane vs Kog'maw Alistar. Killed them so hard I had my triforce at like 15 minutes and they surrendered at 20 minute with Kog having 50 cs. Alistar just didn't realize that I was going to instantly focus him if he engaged on me before level 6, and GP dot dmg with ignite made it too late for him to retreat. Also had a nice thing where they started a fight and I hit level 6 a second after the fight started and suddenly double killed them.
We pretty much won by the enemy team just raging at each other hardcore. Top said only he and the Jungle did well, Mid said he was bad too, Kog'maw blaming Alistar, etc. Only time I can say that I liked having a Soraka in the game, infinite mana and heals for GP is a wonderful thing.
GP is my favorite champion to take to any lane for normals. You don't really need to worry about late game for most normal games, and if you snowball you can easily make the other guy useless.

Had my first pentakill! On Shen! Granted it was in an ARAM, but I'm still proud of it. Bought an ionic spark as first item after boots, hilarity ensued. Would have been two penta's if Ryze wouldn't have stolen the first one.
Of course afterwards my internet was too excited and disconnected me =(
I like Shen, but I've had too many games where I did MAGICAL, like with sparkles flying off me that's how good I was, and I still lost. Serious 10/3/20 games where I stomped top and saved so many players with my ult from 6 and onwards. Perfect engages with (flash)taunt on AD or AP carry, or even both, and then your team DOES NOTHING. Then you try to stick to your 1 decent player, but still not enough. Frustrated me so bad I stopped playing Shen top.
As for fighting him, I had the easiest time as a Jax. Stomped his ass. If you can outpoke and sustain early on you should keep your advantage. Try to take a champion that can interrupt his ultimate if you want him to be useless >6 as well.
Get a penta with your entire team alive and not being far ahead is impressive, especially if you executed your role perfectly. Being the last standing with resets as Katarina and spamming Q/W/E on targets... not so much. Couldn't have done more during the actual fight? Perhaps, but mostly, I think not.
Damn it Riot, why must you torment me ? Why must you make me wait instead of just giving me this new patch that will break the League Of Legends...? I just want to play Carry Jungle Shaco ... Q.Q
I'll take the sky any day.
Im actually pretty excited to try out a new starting item besides my usual longsword / boots
