: biggest issue I've found is that taking the new canon causes you to trigger anything you fly over Teemo Shrooms, Viktor ult, cho Q, Lux Ult, etc if anything catches you at a bad moment while flying you can literally die before you land

In my experience, its just so unreliable. Buttons don't work, it doesn't let you connect to the game which results in time penalties, when I try and open up my "loot" page, it takes upwards of 2 minutes - not exaggerating there. I could go on but with how poorly it works it's just so infuriating

Idk, he seems to do really well in some matchups and I think his passive is super underrated. He doesn't seem that snowbally though

His damage during laning phase is so low with how strong building armor is and how hard the enemy laner can hit you in return. Yes his lvl 6 powerspike is strong but you have to hit all of your q's for it to work.
: Even after 5 years playing this game I am awful.
Honestly in silver it's not that much better, and honestly probably even harder. After spending all of S8 in S5-S4, I can pretty confidently say that there's a lot of players in Bronze 1 that are much better than the players in low silver. People say that "if you can't carry yourself out than you deserve to be there", and I think that's complete BS. 100%. With how many people rage quit, afk, troll, etc, its a miracle if you can gain even 50 lp in a day. I don't doubt that if you put a plat+ player in bronze and silver that they would stomp, but the amount of people in plat+ are a tiny percentage of the overall player base, and expecting everyone to be able to carry themself out is just insanity. I will also say the decision - making in silver is so strange. I've never seen so many teams run into the enemy team 1 by 1 and not realize why we aren't winning. If you want to get out of bronze at least, I would say learn Karthus in and out. I've been playing him long before he was meta, and if you can farm well and not feed, I think he's among a small handful of champs that can take over a game simply because the other team has no idea what to do. Good luck!

If you look at Ornn for example, he has 3 knockups. Honestly, why. Almost every adc with a couple exceptions has hard cc. Most mages have hard cc. Most top laners have hard cc. It's ridiculous. You need to build 6 merc scims to be relevant. > > 4. I love Jax, but that champ is so busted its not even funny. His E in particular is way too overloaded. > > There's more but those are the big things. Just so taken aback about how ridiculous the state of the game is atm. Jax isn't even close to busted when you compare him to champions like Akali, Darius, Jhin, Zyra, Brand, Tryndamere, Shaco... etc

: Karthus Runes and Builds
On SR there are a few different ways you can go, depending on your playstyle and who you're against. Rune wise, I like to go Aery over comet - it's easier to proc and its definitely going to hit. While it only does a tiny amount of damage compared to comet, it has actually been the extra bit I've needed when ulting to secure the kill quite a few times. Electrocute is an option, but I've always seen it as counterproductive to his playstyle. If you just farm up as Karth you'll be relevant, and electrocute forces you to trade with your opponent, opening up the option to die and fall behind - which is the last thing you want to be doing btw. I forget what the other ones are called, but the rune that scales ad/ap with time is really good as well as the rune that reduces the CD of your ult if you get a kill with it. Build wise, I rush catalyst almost 100% of the time. It provides a ton of sustain and just allows you to keep farming and staying in lane. Build it into RoA and than itemize as you see useful - my build usually looks something like: Catalyst > RoA > Sorc shoes > Void Staff > Morello > Deathcap > Zhonyas or liandrys or Rylias depending on whichever is most useful. The one exception would be rushing a seekers if youre against Zed/Talon and they have an early kill. It's worth noting that in almost every single Karthus game I've played I've dealt the most damage. Karthus get absolutely out of control if you farm up and play smart. Karthus is really similar to A Sol in how he benefits enormously from magic pen - you should probably always build sorc shoes, morellos, and DEFINITELY void staff regardless. When you're 6 items your ult can easily deal over 1k damage by itself. Playstyle you should always be farming. Think 60 cs by 9 min. Don't even think about fighting until you've finished 1 or 2 items, because late mid game to late game you'll be hitting like a truck. It's also worth noting that in lane, karth has a distint advantage over melee champs because he can wipe out the line of caster minions in a second. I think it's 6 q's level one kills them all, at which you level up your w and start getting mana back from kills. From playing him a lot, I actually think he doesn't have that many matchups he gets steamrolled in. Some of his harder matchups are the intuitive ones, Zed, Ekko, Kat. I would pick Karth into almost any patchup except those. If they're good youre going to get smashed and theres a high chance they'll snowball out of control. However, in that case just pick Diana.

: What is the counterplay to Zoe late-game?
Sticking together as a team and not splitting or afk farming as adc's like to do for whatever reason. If you want to capitialize on her horrilbe early game, just play fizz. He is the hardest counter to her IMO
: extremely bad teammates in ranked games only.
I've been thinking the same thing for a while now. I've climbed from B3 I believe to S4 this season, but Silver seems to be full of WAY more trolls, afks, feeders, and people who just tilt harder easier. I've spent the vast majority of the season climbing from S5 to S4, only to get trolled right back to S5. I honestly think high Bronze is way better than Silver. Congrats for even making it to S3

: What people think happens in bronze vs what really happens in bronze
There's a ton of truth in this. I've spent the better part of the season bouncing between S5-S4, and I'm pretty sure players in high bronze are better than low silver players. The amount of flaming, inting, and afk's is absolutely nuts in low silver to the point where climbing by yourself is almost impossible unless you hard carry. Interestingly enough, I also think the shotcalling and macro play in high bronze is also superior than low silver. Just my thoughts and experiences

: Who is better? Akali or Katarina?
I like Akali quite a bit more than Kat. I think that playing Kat well is harder than playing Akali well due to timing, but the fast paced nature of Akali's kit just makes for a better game overall imo.
: Which champions do you feel right now are really underpowered and just aren't worth trying to play?
{{champion:266}} is one that comes to mind. He's basically a really strong siege minion.

Yeah I had the great pleasure of playing Lee game aganist Heim. Literally nothing you can do whatsoever. That being said, Talon, Zed and weirdly enough Cait seem to do alright.

: I feel like ranked in lower elo is pure luck at this point
Completely agree. I was S1 last season and currently can't get out of B3 due to the enormous amount of stupidity on the team, even after stomping the enemy laner and roaming as much as I can.. I know that sounds harsh but it's just the truth.
Atuko (NA)
: Give me tips on how to play against Zed
In regards to his ult and excluding abilities and items that give invulnerability, your best bet is to flash away instantly. If you time it right, he wont be able to hit you with his e. He might hit you with a Q or 2 but you shouldnt die if you already created some distance between him, as a LOT of damage comes from his E and the auto attack after it. In general, what seperates good Zeds from bad Zeds is their ability to land their Q. It has a 9 sec cd (?) at lvl 1, which is a decent window to get some harass in and even it out. A lot of people back off after Zed harasses with his W, but thats exactly the time when you should attack him, as he just burned his only escape. Same with Yasuo - he's most vulnerable after his 3rd Q, and Zed is most vulnerable after he has used his W. For example, I love playing Talon into Zed. After Zed uses the W, jump on him and punish the heck out of him for it. Talon's ult is also the perfect thing to use to "counter" Zed's ult. If the Zed isnt carrying a pink ward or sweeping trinket, just ult after he ults and either one-shot him if you have the health, or use the additional MS to run away. That being said, Zed is a pretty oppressive champ to play against regardless, and it really depends on who's playing him as to how much outplay potential you have.

I actually just bought Ekko a couple days ago so I can't speak to much to him, but she's definitely able to put out a lot more damage in a shorter timeframe than he is.
