I don't consider myself a great Twisted Fate player but i cant keep quiet anymore
Stop. Buying. Rod. On. TF.
When i see a TF in a game, i wait 5min and then check his items.
If he has a ruby crystal then i know his team is in for a bad time
You don't need HP if you're positioning right,
TF generates infinite mana using his blue card,
and waiting 10 minutes for a power spike just puts you behind everyone else
Just get Lich Bane (or rush Hourglass if your against a Fizz)
