As i said, I wasn't sure. Also. His ult definitely used to be some other form of cc. They changed it. Maybe not a stun. Perhaps a root? Not sure, that was a long time ago. They did something regarding whether you could or could not auto attack during it, or cast movement abilities. I don't remember exactly. Thanks for the correction on the q buff.
His ult's cc was always the same though. Check his patch history. http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Amumu The only relevant change was the tool tip clarification in patch V1.0.0.100 Curse of the Sad Mummy Curse of the Sad Mummy Tooltip corrected to state that enemies are rooted and cannot attack or move.

: Hey bud. Gold 5 Amumu main here, THOUSANDS of games on Amumu. Love my mummy. You're absolutely right. He feels terrible right now, and it makes me sadder than the sad mummy himself. The first thing that really killed him was the nerfs to his W's percentages. Made his clear slower, made his damage less meaningful, made him basically a one-trick ult machine - but his ult was still really great. (still is, kinda) They also nerfed his AP ratios before that (or after? I can't remember) which made him even worse. They also changed his ult from being a stun to snare. They also nerfed a few of his key items, which indirectly nerfed him. Abyssal mask was good for him, but too little too late. If I'm not mistaken, at some point they upped the cooldown on his Q, too - but I can't verify that. I think they did, though. Basically its been nerf after nerf after nerf after nerf, and the sad mummy is in a pretty...well... sad state right now. I think they could probably buff his %health damage on his W back to where it was, or maybe increase his AP ratios (although you shouldn't really be building too much AP on him anyway.) That or make him tankier. Right now, unless you build absolutely full-tank on him, he's pretty squishy. Building AP on him just makes him a glass cannon CC Nuke. You go in, you blow your load, you die. Building hybrid on him just feels bad, because you're not really doing meaningful damage, and you're also not tanky enough to engage (his main job) so hybrid builds are horrible on him. So as it stands he's a completely ignorable tank with a decent ultimate at best, or a kamikaze ult machine at worst. Neither of which feel particularly good to play. Make his E do additional damage to jungle creeps or something, i dont know. I'm not a game designer, and I'm not good with numbers. Something's gotta give, though. I'd love to be able to play my favorite champion again and feel good playing him, and not have my team pursing their lips at me when I lock him in because there are CLEARLY better choices available. Sad mummy is so, so very sad.

: First of all, if it didn't tilt people, we wouldn't be seeing these posts complaining about them. But other than that piece of evidence I admit it's an opinion. My point is that it's fine for people to play mostly ARAM; it's not up to us to judge people who don't like the regular game mode. And there's nothing wrong with people picking OP ARAM champions. I mean, don't we pick champions that are good in normal games as well? For example, I bought Vladimir before he was nerved because he was really strong at the time. And again, there's really no reason to check if someone is an ARAM player or not. To quote you, "Losing a one-sided game doesn't feel too bad when the other side doesn't have an ARAM smurf," but if you never find out if someone is an "ARAM smurf" then you won't feel "too bad." Oh, and about your last statement, I agree that gloating is obnoxious. But I think that issue relates more to "people who gloat" rather than "ARAM smurfs."
Yes there's nothing wrong with people playing OP ARAM champs BUT there's something wrong with people intentionally making an account full of OP ARAM champs and twisting the odds of winning in their favor. Normal games have nothing to do with ARAM. ARAM is supposed to be random. You aren't supposed to choose whether or not you get a good champ or not. That's the whole point of the game mode. You get all kinds of random champs and see if you can try to with with them even if they suck in ARAM. "but if you never find out if someone is an "ARAM smurf" then you won't feel "too bad."" A one sided game feels bad in general. It feels better if you know they're cheating the ARAM system to win. It feels better if you know you both don't have ARAM smurfs and its a fair game. Again, the main point that you and other people need to realize is there's something wrong with people making ARAM smurf accounts with **only **OP ARAM champs and **intentionally **increasing the odds of winning and making the game one-sided. It goes against the purpose of the game mode for which it was created for, existed for, and having fun for.
: I knew someone was going to say this... How many champions are good at ARAM? Like, around 20? It's mostly mages and marksmen as well. There's absolutely NO WAY you can tell a mid/adc main with ARAM good champions from an ARAM only account! Perhaps they like playing ARAM! That method you mentioned is pure speculation, and incredibly biased based on champions. And another thing. Why are you looking for this in the first place? Finding out that an account "fits" a description of an ARAM only account will do nothing but TILT YOU. Why are you making yourself suffer, when you can just brush off a loss as a bad game and move on?

Why are you making yourself suffer, when you can just brush off a loss as a bad game and move on? It's the amount of normal and ranked games they played + what champions they played in ARAM. It's The huge majority of ARAM smurfs have less than 100 games played while the amount of of ARAM games they played is large in comparison. Some accounts even have 0 normal and ranked games played while having 1000+ ARAM games. Usually, it's extremely easy to tell who's an ARAM smurf or not. It's your opinion whether or not it will tilt people. Losing a one-sided game doesn't feel too bad when the other side doesn't have an ARAM smurf who purposely abuses the system and you know it was just a luck of the draw. It is annoying when half of of the ARAM smurfs I play with or against wins, they say gloat with "ggez" or similar words at the end of the game.

Downsides of creating an ARAM only account: 1. Having to grind to level 30 2. Not accumulating IP on your main account. 3. Main account (due to less play) have less champions to be more competitive in Summoner's Rift There's only downside for those who also play summoner's rift, especially ranked. If you are an ARAM only player, then there are no downside. But in this case, my personal opinion is that the opinion of those who are not fully dedicated to ARAM have no right to complain about people who are. ARAM and SR are not the same game. Therefore, if you have a SR-oriented profile, you have no place to complain about it not being subpar in ARAM.

If it takes no effort, why don't you make one. Playing underpowered champions in ARAM isn't fun anyways. Wouldn't it be more fun if everyone got to play fun ARAM champions only in ARAM games? Oh wait... it's because it does take an effort to make "ARAM accounts" and you're not willing to put in that effort to make it. And no, games don't have to be fair. Competitive games have to be fair. Look at Skyrim? Is that game "fair"? An inmate who's able to master every form of combat abilities and take on a whole army by himself is fair? No it's not, but it's okay because it's a casual non-competitive game. ARAM is not a competitive game - it is a casual carefree spinoff game mode. People who play ARAM aren't looking to compete - they're looking to have fun, and playing overpowered champions are more fun than playing underpowered ones. I personally don't play ARAM because it's not my cup of tea; but if I do, I sure as hell would not like to play someone like Eve. I don't even want the possibility of playing her in ARAM. Why would you force something so miserable upon others just because you're too lazy to make your own "ARAM account".

Why would you force something so miserable upon others just because you're too lazy to make your own "ARAM account". Because the game doesn't revolve around your definition of "fun". I don't know why you're bring Skyrim into this. Why are you even talking about combat abilities? It's a very basic level of fair that you somehow can't comprehend. Everyone should have the same amount of cards. That's it. Plain and simple. If you don't even play ARAM then why are you even here? Why are you commenting on a game mode you don't like and play? Yes ARAM a carefree fun gamemode. It's fun to pick a random champion vs other random champions. That's the point of the game, why it was so popular, and why it got its own map and game mode. No, not everyone likes playing overpowered champions in this mode. You don't even play the game so why are you even making this comment? If you want to play specifically overpowered champions then play other modes then. ARAM isn't for you and was created to be RANDOM. No, it's not fun when one player has an huge advantage over other players before even queueing up for ARAM because he abused the system. It's not fun when the game had a high chance of becoming a onesided stomp before the player even clicks the PLAY button. "Why would you force something so miserable upon others " Everyone has different champions they like to play. Why would you force your miserable preferences upon others just because you don't even play ARAM. It seems you have no arguement at all and only call people lazy. How conceited and selfish can you be?
: Everyone action has a benefit and a consequence. Nobody forced you to buy more than a few champions. You bough the champions to reap the benefits you get form it. The consequence is that you have a harder time in ARAM. Those who have "ARAM accounts" lose out on IP gained on their main accounts. They also had to grind to level 30 on those accounts. You also have the choice to make an account like this, but you choose not to because you know very well the consequences of them. The world does not revolves around making you happy and comfortable.

: That's pretty much exactly it. the nerf on {{summoner:32}} made it more visible, easier to dodge and gave it a longer cooldown (ironic since every other spell got a cooldown buff >_>), so if you miss, you can't even get close for 48 seconds. Removing orb of winter got rid of the only means of defence against pokes and no {{item:3401}} has turned the tanks that didn't have much use on aram into full meat shields instead of a meat shield/ source of healing. Melee champs have become practically useless on ARAM again. I do not know what Riot was thinking with these changes, but it feels like they don't understand the nature of ARAM at all.

: That's 100% the wrong way to trade as a vayne in lane. Vayne has the shortest auto of ADCs so if you got into range and hit for an auto and then tumbled BACKWARDS that means you at best scenario traded. Keep in mind most other adcs have spells they would then use. Once vayne can actually hit a target without taking substantial damage she needs to actually stick there for a moment.
550 range is the shortest auto of ADCs?

NOW you use your blind, her AA wont harm you but i suggest you kite anyway really at no point should you use your blind until they are on top of you and your vault is on CD
> Fiora will miss her attacks if she is blind when she attacks an enemy champion. http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Fiora Blind always worked on her ult ever since she was released since it's on-hit autoattacks like WW's ult. I blinded her in in my Quinn vs Fiora matchups many times sucessfully since I usuallly timed it right. As for OP, Quinn's blind lasts for 1.5 seconds while Fiora's ult lasts around 2-3 seconds. Combine that with her ult's cast time and the distance Fiora has to travel (even with her Q), while blinded, to get into range to use her ult.

No his E doesn't proc spell vamp and it is intended that way.

What breaking vision? There's a ward in there... The Trist really was dumb enough to walk in melee range to eat an empowered rulthless predator. After she jumped, she took 3 steps to get closer to Rekt. The first was to reach the highest possible autoattack range she had at that level to be able to aa Rekt. The second and third steps were just plain unnecessary and got her killed because she went in melee range. She also had her ult and ignite which would've been enough to kill the 122 hp Rekt(at the moment before he stunned her) but didn't choose to use it. Her ult has a 60 sec cooldown too so it would've almost been up again by the time she recalled and returned to lane...
