Just tryed Morgana support vs Leona, shut her down hard. Me gusta...
4 wins a row with Kha'zix and 8 wins in a row with Vi, making it 12 wins a row. Not bad
Regarding Kha'zix. I've won all games I've played with him so far (4 games so far), but I still have one major issue with him. I wouldn't really say that I have managed to play any excellent with him. I would actually go so far to say that all my 8 games with Vi I did better than any of my 4 games with Kha'zix.
This basically comes down to the following:
- I have a hard time getting creep kills and harrasing before I get W evolved (especially against ranged champions).
- His gap closer E (jump) is really weak before getting upgraded. You can rarely get into position to stick on your target, and once it is on cooldown you cannot disengage, and it only takes a bit of soft or hard CC to keep you kited.
- I think his ultimate is rarely game breaking (I don't seem to like evolving it either).
- He doesn't do a lot of damage before getting Q upgraded.
- He lacks tankability, and therefore often dies before or after a gank is finished, unless fed.
The only real succes I've had with him is when I've upgraded both E and W and I can jump around and really mess with my opponents since I can easily harass from range and disengage to safety, and then jump in and finish a target in case they fall behind because of W slow.
Keep in mind that my account is only level 11, so I don't have flash, glyphs, and I always have to share a lane with someone else (no junglers), so will often mean that I am against at least 1 or 2 champions that can harass me better than I can harass them.
It could very well just be because I lack experience with this champion (since he seems quite hard to play), but I've had much more success with Vi (ganking, tankability, finishing off opponents, initiating kills on weak targets during team fights etc). What is your opinion regarding this?
Then again, maybe that change wasn't intended and came to that build accidentally.
The upcoming Quinn hype did bring to light about how neglected Ashe is.
Had fun in my last game. Was a Renekton... Yi goes to meditate, I just stun him and then kill him. Problem solved.
Anyone see that new Blitzcrank skin that's unavailable in shop? Has an interesting look to him when I first saw it.

I misspoke a bit though. Ezreal also being free is what makes it more noticeable, since when both are occupied by these two the suck seems to just go through the roof.. I've finally got the hang of Nami and been setting up some SICK Qs and they never follow through. Never. I will probably start crying in the corner when I work up the guts to play Ranked again.

Light or darkness...which are you blinded by?
Now if they could release his Nordic King skin I would consider playing him more. Currently it just feels a little cheap to play him in lane because of how powerful he is during the laning phase, and he doesn't have any skins I like.
Still curious as to their plans to rework him though. I thought the whole 10 bleed stacks with the ability to spread stacks to nearby targets was neat, but needed a little more work to make it so his laning phase wasn't screwed because of being unable to get enough stacks to make his ult do damage.

Maintenance will be done for the EUW, EUNE, and TW servers, to try to resolve the issues of the EU servers having downtime issues. Whether it fixes that is yet to be seen.
This change is good and makes sense. It's like a battle frenzy super ult spree. When the fighting ends you calm down and your ult goes on CD.
Typically it depends on which lane you play and what role you want to fulfill. I play him mostly mid as an anti-carry, but he is still really strong as a bruiser top.
In both roles you want to build damage first to make his poke useful, so Brutalizer and Bloodthirster are kinda core on him. After that you either go full damage (last whisper, black cleaver, manamune, etc) or bruiser (tri-force, warmogs, randuin). Never build full tank as he'll be basically worthless aside from being a meatshield with a knockback.
Laning phase is really easy, considering his many speed modifiers and range: they make him safe from ganks and easy to farm with. For example, sometimes if I know the enemy junger is camping my lane i just safely farm from a far with EQ since it starts one-shotting creeps really early. This only works if you're building a manamune though.
As with all the champs with strong poke, you should always try to precede teamfights with doing that. During them you usually just go for their squishies or, if you're built bruiser, try to protect your carries with your E and Q slow for a little before going back to killing squishies.
tl;dr: power slam.
Even when chasing with an unevolved E once you get to a target you burst them so much they will at least have to back, which is a win on itself. Don't always have to get a kill.
More then once have I R -> E -> Q -> W -> R -> AA [ignite] -> Q and killed a target like this. Both early and lategame. I love Kha'zix, but I hate laning against champions with a strong AA poke (Lux, Orianna). Once you hit 6 it gets marginally easier, and with 12 they be dead.
What really bothers me though... I want to transfer from EUNE to EUW, but I / they can't remove my old level 1 account on EUW. So the only way for me to transfer is to make an entirely new account on EUW and let them transfer everything over (champs/runes/pages/skins/rp/ip) - but I lose my wins/loss, LP, MMR/ELO...
I am somewhat bothered by this :/ I am on a pretty stable 470-400 w/l ratio now and quite happy with it, not looking forward to be put into "troll elo" again.
