    Nah, they're a bit friendlier.

    Anyways I was into LoL for awhile (something like 150-200 games) but never enjoyed it as much as DotA/HoN. Some aspects like the ability to teleport home or customize your skillset were cool but the lane phase was a lot more boring and had less risk without denies available, as did the whole "every hero can be good in every stage of the game" balancing due to scaling damage.

    Rofl, Thorns and I had a fun game. Despite me being counterjungled early on and having a feeder for our melee carry, Thorns and I managed to come back and absolutely rape the enemy team.

    Most people in the LoL community are nicer than those in DotA/HoN. But sometimes, even I've been guilty of raging. My account once had an ELO over 1500 (average is 1100-1200), but now I'm down to 1374 after 5 losses in a row (2 of which, I'll admit, were mostly my fault).

    One thing I've noticed, though, is that the metagame of higher ELOs is completely different than the normal games meta. In ranked, most teams have multiple tanks, a jungler is required, and teamfights revolve completely around dragon, ganks revolve around wardbaiting, etc etc. I've played against guys whose ELO is over 1650, and it was jawdropping. They were always one step ahead, and after a while I was just floundering around.

    Anyways, I encourage you guys to give LoL a try, and I'd be happy to start a smurf (false level 1 account) to play a game with you.

    Pacific Standard, so GMT-8.

    I'll start a smurf to play with you guys, my level 30 might get you paired up with other level 30s. I'll probably need to play a manaless champ, since you get kind of addicted to mp5/level runes once you get them.

    Yeah, I only really use mp5/18 runes on mana hungry champs like Ashe, Tank Cho'Gath, and Pantheon (who don't benefit too muchfrom AP). I don't usually play casters (I suck with them), so I never really needed them.

    Just had an amazing solo queue game as Blitz. Went something like 4/2/6. Doesn't sound that impressive, but EVERY SINGLE one of those kills or assists were successful ganks. We managed to get them to surrender at 25, and I got four friend requests after the match. =D

    I'm Archeer on the North American server. Add uppp. I main Shaco and Shen, I do "OK" with Ashe. I'm a level 20 summoner.

    Solo Queue Tier List: http://reignofelementz.com/solo-queue-tier-list/
    Ranked Game Tier List (Draft mode): http://reignofelementz.com/tier-list/

    LOL heimer is near the bottom of both lists for a reason. 2 turrets isnt enough for pushing in team fights. His concussive grenade is easy to dodge. Rockets target minions as well as champions. Ult is pretty much useless....

    after a series of losses on summoner's rift danmantincan and I got mad. we then proceeded to wipe the floor on twisted treeline, which may be the most imbalances map for Warwick. you know there's something going on when my two deaths came from charging the enemy nexus and having three players and a tower dogpile on me

    Creeps? That's what turrets are for. And you do have an autoattack.

    And that isn't true, especially with the introduction of Deathcap.

    They're nerfing Rammus. Considering the way they've nerfed things as of late, another great tank becomes useless.

    No, he needed a nerf for sure, but I'm saying they're going to overnerf him in the way that they nerfed Galio, and Twitch.

    And they're nerfing eve's base damage in early game to make her a less effective jungler too, so that problem's solved.

    Played correctly, Heimerdinger is a fucking monster. Properly aimed concussion grenades can stun enemies trying to run away and blind enemies trying to attack, and planting a turret then using the ult can help net some kills or help a teammate get away. Level 5 Rockets with a few hundred AP have little cooldown and can do hundreds of damage, each dealing 285 +55% ability power. His ult's real strength is the cooldown reduction, especially stacked with additional cooldown reduction.

    But, played incorrectly he's feeder bait and can do little damage 1 on 1, relying on teammates in team fights.

    imo the only thing Rammus needs nerfed is the taunt spell, but they're going after every tank it seems like these days.

    good luck aiming that grenade, it's fking slower than blitz's arm...

    lol it's called magic resistance. 0.55 ap ratio isn't good considering the fact that it's a random target attack which also targets minions.

    yeah 3 second taunt is a bit unbalanced...considering his defensive ball curl + thornmail just returns half the damage back to the attacker.

    twitch is not overnerfed, just over priced. but i agree that galio got overnerfed.

    I just hope they won't nerf shaco :/

    Caitlyn and Ashe seem to similar to me it's scary. Caitlyn takes a little more skill with her net and Peacemaker, but less with her ult, and the only tricky thing with Ashe is her ult, that's really the only difference. Well, that and the slight autoattack range difference and the differences in width of their spammable skills.
