    Just learned how to play Sylas yesterday due to a video of a guy with only 200 subscribers.
    Im happy i finally understand the champion.

    Sylas is basically a walking BAIT simulator with insane healing when low HP.

    You pick Conqueror rune + all healing options in runes, make Ardent Censer and level W first...all you do is bait.

    The video that started it all:

    Well, lets be fair here, that only happens higher than gold unless the grevious item is core in the build of the champion that is.

    Story Time with shadowpunkz
    (Warning: I suffered from Paranoia IRL as a kid, so dont mind my Galio Skin comment)

    ---------

    Sorry in advance for being negative...but when someone "kills" you like Riot killed me...it left a mark in my brain forever...and i would like to share this story with everyone.

    Background:

    DOMINION was my favorite game mode and my friends.
    We were at high mmr and at one point in time i had a complete match history of wins...im not kidding...my match history was FULL of wins and without a single defeat.
    How?
    I played Galio bot lane with "Fortify Tower" and i was really good at it.
    Basically the ability kit of "old" Galio was optimal to defend a tower. With my ultimate + Fortify combo i would double kill everyone who would come to take my tower AND i could keep interrupting everyone with Q's and E's at a distance.
    No one could take my tower.
    My friends, when they saw me having double kills, they always said: "He got a double kill at tower again...LOL"

    What im about to say may sound stupid...i know...it sounds stupid...but a part of me (as a kid) believed the Galio skin called GATEKEEPER GALIO released at the time was made in my honor...
    I know, i know, completely insane...but i was a kid...and i was one of the best Dominion Tower defender...and the skin is called GATEKEEPER Galio.

    -------

    When Riot made Fun of an entire community:

    My main complaint is not that Riot removed Dominion. Ofcourse im still a crybaby about it...but thats NOT my main complaint.
    My main complaint is what came after removing Dominion:
    The creation of the game mode called:

    "Definitely NOT Dominion"

    Take a look at the name...
    The name is making fun of every single person who enjoyed Dominion.
    After both reading Riot's post about retiring dominion and watching the name is CLEAR that Riot is saying to the entire community:
    "Yeah...its clearly NOT Dominion the game mode you want to have in the game"

    I ask for anyone else to tell me how else to interpret this game mode's name.

    If you dont believe me, just read Riot's post about retiring Dominion.
    Riot created an entire mode to MAKE FUN of an entire small community.
    https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/ne...iring-dominion

    "Nope! NOT Dominion! Thats for sure! LOL"

    And created a spoof game mode to make fun of us, instead of having ACTUAL DOMINION as a rotating game mode...they gave us a "spoof" to make fun of us...
    To this day, im salty ACTUAL Dominion is not the game rotating.

    (sorry for the rant and the salt)

    You're still mad over that? It's been years. And no one played it, so good riddance imo.

    And no, they didnt make fun of a whole community, because firstly, there wasn't a community playing the mode, just some players and a bunch of bots. And secondly, why would they make fun of it? It was more of a joke, not an insult. Don't take it too hard.

    Im still salty, yeah im sorry, i just wanted to tell you the story.

    Its just the nostalgia about those times man...it was the time i had my first girlfriend...i made fanart of Galio and Miss Fortune...ah the young me...so naive...so dumb.
    Dominion marked my teenager years and it was my glory days.

    And not only they removed Dominion, they made a "joke" about it...and removed "bot lane" from the game in said "joke" game mode.

    Idk about anyone here or maybe you guys didn't participate in the Clash betas, but that structred 5v5 tournament style to me is the most fun I've had playing the game in a really long time.

    I'm only level 37 and have no friends playing the game, so I missed out on clash. Hopefully that's different when they bring it back. It does look like it'd be good fun.

    REALLY enjoying Sett. Not really sure how too build him, though. Just going for fairly safe bruiser items. Titanic Hydra, Merc Treads, TF, Gage, SV, and frankly I've not had a game go beyond that, if it's even gotten that far.

    Anyone got suggestions for builds, if that isn't right?
