Re: League of Legends

Nami + Caitlyn combo can be devastating against fiddle support. With the nami slow, caits long range and fiddles relatively short range and squishyness. Only problem you're likely to have is disengaging from his ulti if he gets a good one off.

Re: League of Legends

I don't think your normal ELO decays, it's just that Riots normal mode matchmaking system can be very... lax when matching up skill levels. A few friends and I have been leveling smurfs as one of them is new to the game and we didn't want to queue together with our level 30s. The new guy asks if ano...

Pretty sure it's practically impossible to solo baron in a normal game scenario now. He does silly damage when you're the only person nearby and then does silly+ damage when he goes low.

Re: League of Legends

AD carries shouldn't need to ward. During laning the support does it whereas you really should be buying them if you're mid/top/jungle. When the laning phase is over ADC's shouldn't normally be in a position where they can place a useful ward as they should be in a safe farm position or with teammat...

Re: League of Legends

Ah I see, I thought they were just attempting to reintroduce the old system themselves and completely ignoring the leagues and divisions. That's slightly disappointing.

Re: League of Legends

Matchmaking works exactly as it did before leagues/divisions except your MMR is hidden and obfuscated by the league system which can have some very strange behaviour. My friend in silver 1 was getting 4LP per win or something and losing 10, when he finally got into gold he started gaining 15-20 LP a...

Spending IP on a rune page (I assume you mean like an empty page rather than runes for a page) is hideously expensive. Much better to fork out some RP on the bundle and use your IP for runes/champs.
