    Losing critical 5v5 team fights because you forget the things tacked on to your items (with ridiculously small icons; they should be as large as your normal QWERDF buttons if they're an active) is just asking to be flamed. Either you never forget or you skip the issue entirely by picking non-active items (which is what I do).
    Buying a retarded item such as Trinity Force on Vladimir because you can't fathom to press active items is asking to be flamed.

    And no, either you forget -- and then practice until you don't forget, or you go completely derp and skip all active items.

    You cannot get demoted from a bracket (silver to bronze), you can only get demoted in divisions.

    Just gonna throw this out here before we have another victim of the Firebert-incidents series: someone 'asking to be flamed' is still no valid reason to do so.

    Thank you Just started my promotion series from Bronze 1 to Silver 5 and a friend was mocking me saying that even if I get promoted I'll get demoted back to Bronze when my luck turns. Probably trolling me :P

    You guys are forgetting that they're also reducing the recipe cost for both bilgewater cutlass and BotRK, which means for 75 more gold, BotRK gains 30% attack speed. I don't see how it's going to be worse for Bruisers, just more free stats.

    Not sure I like.
    It's stronger than it was before. What's not to like?

    When I said that there wasn't written things like cost and the new active. If they taxed somewhere the attack speed and made it cost more, it would've been weaker for champs that could use it but have no need for AS.

    Though since it costs less, it's just free stats and it's a non-issue.

    It doesn't cost less, it costs a GRAND TOTAL OF 75G MORE.

    People that are interested in Blade of the Ruined King actually worry about wards?

    Yeah, I know, silly 700 Elo games.

    No, two mana pots. Always important, even on Garen.

    I start with blue pot + 6 mana pots for early game domination. I've seen people do red pot/6 health pot starts and win, so blue must be even more effective.
