    I'll just leave a Link here since the picture is so dang long, and all I have to say in regards to said image is poor Teemo.

    Also, almost lvl 20. Hopefully I won't still feel like a deadweight by then.

    yeah, I don't know what it is, but I can never seem to carry hard enough anymore. I'm about 10 games negative, and was positive only earlier this week. I've dropped below 1000 elo, and I don't see any way of coming back. The lower I go the harder it gets to carry a team to the win, too many people give up and surrender or just afk/leave and I don't understand why. BTW, I'm pretty sure matchmaking hates me, because out of my past 10 ranked games, 6 had people who quit/afk/left the game. The other teams? Decent coordination and decent teamcomps, no ragequits, nothing. WTF.

    Should have screen capped this since I suck at re-telling jokes/funny stories but her goes.

    Was practicing Allistar earlier on an easy AI match. We spawn in and I take some time to just sit down and think about how I'm gonna build Al this time. Another player also hangs back for some reason, others head off to their lanes. Game gets close to starting and one of the laned players asks:
    "Hey Allistar and Tristana, you AFK or just bull!@#$ing?"

    I say "Is that pun on my champ?"

    lols abound.

    So I started up a ranked game today, and after having my solo top request shut down and jungle taken over by a Shaco, I decided to try to troll my team out of queue. I ended up randoming into Rammus and when it became clear that no one was dodging I grabbed a quick rune/mastery set up and headed off to my ELO demise. What followed has hilarious:

    Hey, I've been playing this game for a couple of weeks and am looking for more people to play with. I'm not great, but i'm learning.

    My LoL name is MisterMegane, if you want to add me.

    I usually play Karthus.

    I don't what's more frustrating: the xp feeding or when someone on my team quits mid-game.

    I find it way more annoying when someone quits. It just weakens the whole team.

    Best Teemo? Quite likely.

    So this is how it goes, sick Tim, plus lots of medicine (Some which shouldn't have been mixed), plus alcohol, plus 3 hours of Party with Pinkie Pie = One over-the-top Tim and a good Teemo game.

    Was just practicing on an intermediate bot match as Nasus. This Miss Fortune keeps giving everyone "critiques" on how they are playing wrong. Specially me and this Brand player. I went through the whole game without saying a word back to em. About 45-50 minutes in the "pros" are complaining about how bad we're doing and that we'll lose, putting blame on me and the Brand player. While they are complaining I beat down a few towers, and basically open everything up for us to win. Not a thank you or I'm sorry was given, and I don't really care. I like to think that I shut them up/left em speechless.

    It takes some practice. And a little research from sites like mobafire.com, leaguecraft.com, solomid.net, etc doesn't hurt.

    It also helps if you used to play a TON of DOTA before you switched over, add me tomorrow Ilriyas the mage (first is an I second an L) and we can play a few games.

    Ok, I'll add you. I play kinda casual, anyway, so I might never get too good at it. I suppose we'll find out, eh?

    Yeah, I'm not the best, but I still play the game a lot. With each game, you get practice, and subsequently, with each game you get a bit better.

    I actually got worse for a while. I went from doing well with Fiddlesticks to getting consistently wrecked for a long time. I worked out the problems, though, so now I'm only getting wrecked semi-consistently.

    I've changed my 'main' character countless times because I'd occasionally have weeks where I'd do amazing with a champion and then find out perhaps a day later after consistent wins that whatever 'aptitude' I had for said champion had all but disappeared.

    The only characters I've been able to do well as consistently have been Garen, Jarvan, Swain, and Ezreal.

    As a result I rarely touch anyone else when I play games with Icrontic.
  • GuyfromcrowdGuyfromcrowd Victoria, BC
    edited Dec 2011
    I find that's the same with me. I usually play 3 characters: Karthus, Udyr, and Tryndamere. I'm always good with Karthus, unless my internet is being a bitch, which is most of the time, but with Tryndamere and Udyr I'm good about half the time. That's why I usually just stick with Karthus.

    So almost lvl 20 and may well have 10k points to spend once I get there. So now the question is: What to spend? I know there ar ethe next lvl of runes to buy but more questions in that. Buy out for one main at a time? Just one specialization at a time?

    Ahh number crunches for endgames. Do you ever change?
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    edited Dec 2011
    I'd suggest buying for whatever you play more. For ad champs/physicals get yourself Destruction marks, ap get Insight, always grab Cooldown glyphs imo (Expensive as hell but that 15% at lvl 18 is worth it) and then mana regen by level for mana champs (For non mana champs get armour which are like 210 each)
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Dallas Icrontian
    edited Dec 2011
    Here are some generic recommendations that get used across a lot of characters, but like Ilriyas said, but for characters you play frequently.

    red: almost always either amr / mag pen, a few champs benefit from crit or attack speed
    yellows: mana regen (dodge is on its way out of the game)
    blue: cooldown reduction (CDR) or magic resist per level (all the per level items even out at level 6, so almost always better to get the per level rather than flat benefits)
    quints: lots of variables here, but crit, arm pen, ability power come up frequently

    I see, thank you! I've still yet to best one problem though. When things get REALLY fun (odds just said F-U Rah, or big close team fight, for example) the adrenaline starts a pumping and I'm shacking too much to do things right. lol Does this mean I get high on LoL?

    Edit: After thinking about it and listening to my stomach I've concluded I was just REALLY hungry and therefor low on fuel. Why do all the food joints have to be closed right now?! D:
