Lol. I don't even wanna know how you came upon that clip, Tax. I like how they threw in Phreak's "Tons of damage!" repeatedly.

I've been getting trolled so hard the last few days in ranked. Absolutely brutal teams. We had a decent team comp in one, against an all AP team. Every single champ they had was AP. Nobody but MR. Even though I repeatedly told them to. Every engage Nunu, Fiddle and Brand would ult. Our whole team would fall over and I'd kill one before running away and getting chased down. It was ridiculous.

I went 30/7/32 on a game with Lux yesterday :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
They killed me a couple times and our whole team would die, they even got an inhibitor at one point. Then the lasers sorted them out.

Not a fan of Lux. To me she feels like playing Morg with shittier skills, but a better ult.

Eh.. Lux's passive completely separates her from Morg IMO. She can do some serious damage if you wand correctly. I can kill most anyone with a full Lux combo at range compared to Morg having to run in. Also, level 10 or so, Lux's ultimate is ~ 30 second recharge. :shock:

Morg's shield is pretty OP.

With Morg's passive + Shield + Ult it's like an instant win for team fights. Spell vamp on that ult is amazing, especially if you get it on a good number of them and can hold it until the stun goes off. I have shield, flash, ulti'd into so many team fights with her and it absolutely ruins people. She can be really tanky late game, too.

I think the 2 most deadly mids are Morg/Karthus. Morgana gives more sustain/support obviously, but Karthus does such incredible damage, it's just ridiculous. His 'E' is highly overpowered. People complain about his ult, but honestly, you get Will of the Ancients and with his E, you can absorb a huge amount of damage, all while doing insane damage in AE. Not to mention when he dies, it stays there for 9 seconds, meaning in team fights it's deadly if they're slowed. Even if they're not, you just hit that R for super bomb victory.

aahaha nice Karthus mix of that song there! Never played Karthus myself, looks fun though. I've really been trying to get decent at jungling lately - I like that role. Just unlocked Shaco yesterday - good stuff! :twisted:

Too bad he's typically always banned in ranked/draft games. I wanna get Skarner myself. I've learned how to jungle pretty well, and I'm decent at it with Udyr, Shaco, Malphite. I also really like jungling Gangplank and Twitch for the fucking lulz. People FREAK OUT when I pick Twitch and take Smite.. then usually go omg twitch carry jungle op when I go 14/2 or some crazy shit.

I've been trying to learn Shaco lately... But I'm having some serious difficulty with it. I dunno why, but his skill combination just seems foreign to me. Probably just need to practice some more with him. I know he can be stupidly powerful (especially if the enemy runs away) but I find his early game frustrating. I like my champs to be tanky.

Shaco - you just level the piss out of his "e": two-shiv poison. Use your Q to sneak up to people, ignite + initial crit from stealth + hitting until they run away + e when they are out of melee range = tons of damage.

I still need to try Twitch. He seems very fun - although I've never seen one jungle before. :twisted:

Have you guys gotten Lulu? Not that interested in her personally, but I like the moves!

Twitch isn't all that fun unless you've got a good team. He's hell to play in Solo queue if your team sucks, especially jungling cause he's weak at it. I haven't tried him since life steal was nerfed so he may be even worse now.

Didn't buy Lulu, but a buddy of mine is telling me she's an obscene support.

I expect Lulu will be nerfed fairly soon. She is an absolute beast. Think of Soraka on steroids.

I know how to utilize Shaco, Tax... It's just the button scheme feels weird to me. Having Q largely as an escape/initiate is just awkward for some reason. That and his W just being the boxes. For some reason it feels awkward for me. Not sure why.

I just went 15/6/9 on Vayne and my whole team had less than 10 kills COMBINED. With less than 5 assists for all of them and +10 deaths on all, except 1. I don't even know how to describe how annoying that is when you lose. I took the only 2 towers we got, too.

I've decided I'm pretty tired of running into so many bad teams in 5v5, so I'm trying to hone some skills for 3v3 and considering making a solid 3v3 ranked team. Seems like less retards play it and Twisted Treeline definitely requires more teamwork/better players since it's so easy to get ganked.

I might just pick up Skarner/Maokai... Already have Morg, obviously. Skarner and Mao can be deadly in the jungle.

Lee Sin is definitely a must-have, too. I've been kinda fence-sitting about Ahri. Seems she is either incredibly effective, or horrendously bad. Seems like she definitely requires a lot of skill/practice to play.

I've been playing Karthus again lately and I'm loving it. I got my first 'ranked' Penta Kill about a half hour ago. Always nice to get one of those. It always surprises me, looking at my ranked stats, how I'm still in such a low elo. I've attached the ranked stats below. It's really mind-boggling.
