In Bronze 5, you pick Vladimir, get 2 kills in lane, then solo carry the whole team as they all run into you Stormtrooper style and die...
: Kayle's size should be bigger.
the size of which part of her?

And assassins do better????? At least with a mage I can still stand back and poke/waveclear with unlimited AOE.

Vladimir mid can easily take you to Gold. People in NA are notoriously bad against him. If he gets the slightest lead he can 1 vs 2/3 quite well.
: My devotion to my foot fetish aside, I believe Riven's footwear is supposed to reference her lore. She's always appreciated the use of power, where the strongest survive through honor and skill. She's Noxian born and raised, but after realizing many Noxian missions are won through underhanded tactics, trickery, and without honor (i.e. killing civilians), she abandoned her nation and now travels to find who she is as an individual. The boot symbolizes her Noxian heritage, and the sandal symbolizes her devotion to follow her own path and journey. This journey aspect is seen in Yasuo's footwear as well, wearing similar sandals

: A good Riven wins this, but an even better Garen has no problem with this. I have no problem beating D1-Challenger level Riven mains, but that is because I know how to animation cancel with Garen. Most Garen players are trash at him, even the ones that main him. Which is pretty sad when you think about it. Having said that, if the Garen builds tank, you should win easily. If he mindlessly charges at you with Q, you should win as well. If he only presses E, then you should win as well. If you snowball, then you should win as well. I recommend going Duskblade first.

: League players are like little dogs.
Well that about explains it, no wonder this game has gone down to the dogs. Its barking mad. Every dog has his day. Hence once in a while, we all get carried. Dogs are very territorial, hence we defend our towers, or at least we should. We're mostly chasing though, the enemy throws a ball to bait and we follow it, meanwhile, we lose ground.
: Who is your permaban champ?
{{champion:105}} for mid lane, {{champion:119}} for bot lane, top lane is {{champion:114}} Fizz is just a bit much. Once he hits 6 he always seems to 1 shot me 100-0 with his Ult when I least expect it/can't dodge it in time. He has deceptively high damage early and if he gets so much as ONE KILL it always snowballs out of control. Super un-fun to lane against because he can just zone you with the threat of his Ult alone. Also, you can play perfectly against him, Ping MIA when he leaves lane... only for him to return with 2 kills from bot. He doesn't have to snowball off you, he can do it to your team mates if they are unresponsive. Draven... well I've just never seen him lose lane in the past 10+ games. He always comes out ahead through absurd base damages and then snowballs way out of control. I played Ezreal into him, killed him twice... he came back and just killed me and snowballed anyways.He's not weak at any point in the game and his Ult is absolutely disgusting in the hands of a main in all out. Fiora... just too lazy to figure out how to lane against her and she always seems to outscale whoever I pick.

She's always been the near one of the strongest ADCs in low elo (hidden OP) due to the ARAM/random picks play stye that allows her to AOE Ult disorganised teams to death I expect now that you can rush Dusk its even stronger

E>Q>W W>E>Q Q>E>W The combos are endless. Landing your chain is the only change to lvl 2 combos. lvl 6: AHA! Here is where it gets fun! Is your lane getting a gank from your jungler? W>E>Q>R+E. THis roots them for a good 2 seconds straight and allows for any jungler to deal their damage and cc. Damage combo? E>W>Q>R+Q. This is just a basic combo. For damage. There is no correct LeBlanc combo per say. If you need CC, use your double chain (first lvl 6 combo listed). If you need more mobility, use your double Jump! Make sure to wait to use your second damaging spell until after your passive is ready to be proc'd. Always keep track of your W return location. A good LeBlanc player will use their W back to possible net them a cheeky kill, or catch their opponent off guard OR dodge skillshots effectively.

Kuu3 (NA)
: Looking for someone to teach me how to leblanc
I want to hear more about this too. I played her and have NO IDEA how you're supposed to combo.
: Vladimir is unplayable garbage
To put it another way. Imagine that we are training on how to fight in a Matrix like world. Vladimir is Neo, every other champion is like a Morpheus or a Trinity etc. Now if you're Neo, you have a LOT of potential and a lot of combat prowess. You have the absolute potential to push yourself to become a god. However, you have something the other characters don't. Whenever guns are fired at you, you can simply raise your hands, use some of your energy, and stop the bullets. As such, you have little incentive to every really drill down and learn how the bullets are fired, how to predict shots, how to dodge the bullets. Why dodge when you can simply stop the bullets with your mind and still get Okayish results? You don't see the games where you dodged the bullets, killed all the goons, and only saved your energy to stop the bullets when you absolutely needed to and achieved better results (more kills) because you feel the existing results are acceptable (I killed one or two, I stopped some bullets with my mind). ... But if you go and train as Morpheus, Trinity etc for a long time and then come back to Neo. Suddenly, you'll start to feel that he's even more powerful. Because you've picked up additional battle senses that can be applied to really abuse Neo's additional safety net.

Maybe I'll continue giving him another go, Anivia is too hard for me to play effectively. I'll also work on positioning and maybe consider buying Mercury treads. I mean, I feel the main downside to Vladimir is that he's definitely NOT the champion to pick if you want to improve at the game as a whole. For instance, I spammed Vlad for a whole year a while back before branching out to some other champions with more vulnerabilities (ex Lux, Viktor, Zed etc) and I've realised that because Vladimir's kit lets you get away with so much (you don't have to aim any hard skill shots, you have no mana costs, you can position aggressively and just Pool, you can heal back) it created a lot of bad habits for me. In a way, I do encourage you to practice Annivia and other champs as well because they WILL force you to improve positioning and other skills. Recently I enjoy playing a lot of champs that still have tons of damage but force me to be really careful with positioning (ex Viktor, Ashe, Ziggs, Jhin etc). They are a lot weaker and more situational picks but spamming them really improves side-stepping, positional awareness, and other skills. Like the main problem with Vlad is that you can play Vladimir, and side-step only 1/3 as well (and sometimes not at all) as you might on say, an Ashe or a Viktor and still have pretty impressive results. Nevertheless, it is actually the side-stepping that's going to make the high quality plays. Ironically sidestepping is actually just as important on a Vlad as it is on other champs, but its just less obvious because his kit allows you get away with less optimal plays. For instance, a Vladimir that gets in the middle of the fight (knowing he can Pool to dodge abilities) but who side-steps around and only pools at the last minute is far more effective than a Vladimir that just walks in and presses Pool as soon as an ability is fired at him. But you'd still get OKAY results at some levels of play with a less mechanical approach. Annivia is definitely VERY GOOD as well. I actually encourage you to play other champs too. Because it was actually only after playing tons of other champs, learning some new skills that are less obvious to Vladimir, and then coming back and applying them to Vlad that I started seeing massive gains in Ranked. After playing hundreds of Vladimir games, pretty much any other champion is going to seem ridiculously hard to get used to. But Annivia is definitely one of the better immobile mages.

Not so good as an insta lock one trick champ. It's the only way his bologne kit is balanced atm I feel he can definitely be instal-locked into any game. The pick is honestly not going to cost you any games you wouldn't otherwise have lost. You are guaranteed a super safe laning phase, you are guaranteed a TON of late game spammable AOE blast. If your team is too bad or your enemy is too good and or picked too much CC (and know how to use it), you might lose but its not something all that preventable with another pick. MAYBE you could have picked something with more early game kill pressure, but you're giving up a huge late game AOE nuke in exchange. If they lock in an Assassin (and go roam and snowball) and TONS and TONS of CC and you lose the game in 20 mins... its honestly not something you could easily have prevented with just another champion pick alone. If anything the Vladimir pick was still a reasonable choice and probably plays a role in preventing the assassin from snowballing in your lane (your team may flame you for letting him roam but that's something to be prevented by team work and play style, less so the champ pick) .

Dude he is completely BUSTED man. He is absolutely broken (at Silver levels of play) at all stages of the game. I have to consciously decide NOT to play just Vladimir 24/7 because I feel that doing so will deteriorate my skills as a player because of how much stuff I can get away with and pull off with him. All other mages have to work three times as hard as him in terms of careful positioning (or they get instantly blown up) in team fights at all stages of the game. His Blood Pool, combined with aggressive side step dances in battle, lets him get away with SO MUCH in Bronze and Silver its beyond broken. There's literally no reason to work so hard to aim Ahri Charms, Viktor lasers, or Zed super fancy double/triple Shuriken combos when you can just pick Vlad, Ghost into the team, press R, and then spam Qs and Es and kill everything with almost no fail in Silver. Like the amount of work and risk you have to put into immobile Mages and ADCs to MAYBE match his late game damage.... its really unbalanced in terms of the pay off. Now it is true, I've played with Gold and higher and have gotten wrecked as Vlad (the enemy would lock you down with CC, their positioning would be too damn good) and you can feed. But I don't feel like the Vladimir pick cost me those games. If anything, it would have been WAY WORSE if I picked anyone else. Yes hard CC shuts him down but the thing is... it shuts EVERYONE down. All carry champs in this game are bad against CC heavy comps. In fact, if you Pre Make a team, spam CC. Its the EASIEST way to win games. CC screws Vlad over sometimes but it screws everyone else even harder. At least you've got a Blood Pool and a Zhonyas to dodge/outplay some of it.

You always, 2/3 of the time get these absolutely TRASH team comps with low to no CC and even when they have it, they don't have the positioning skills of Gold or higher to actually shut down a Vladimir.

: The reason why zed is garbage
He feels terrible to play as. 1. 1 item makes your Ultimate useless {{item:3157}}... dude that feels so bad its beyond description, its too hard to enjoy playing a champion whose ULTIMATE expires in terms of it being an offensive ability; its a simple 2000ish dollar item that can be rushed, in other words, within 20 minute of game time any decent laner will make your Ultimate near useless for 1 vs 1 against the Mid 2. You can easily get countered by a FREAKING support.. what self-respecting mid laner gets countered not just in mid but by a freaking support ({{champion:40}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:44}} etc)? 3. You have to aim Double Shurikens to do DECENT (not extraordinary) damage... and aiming that thing is the biggest mind**** ever (as well as the biggest mismatch between effort and reward)... just try throwing a single Q with 3 completed damage items, you will be AMAZED at how little damage it does to a single target of the same level with no amor 4. You absolutely SUCK in team fights. A bunch of Bronzies could randomly group together, and just like that, almost magically nullify your team fight capability just through concentration of CC. They don't even realise it but they've already 70% outplayed you by coming together 5 vs 5. It makes you die inside. 5. Split push? Well you can't do it in at least 50% of the games (we're assuming you even won lane) because if your Top lost and their Top is smart, they'll block your Split Push. 6. Your late game is garbage... life steal ADC > your assassination, Zhonyas = you can't kill, other people can 100-0 targets more reliably and with greater reliability from further away, you have no AOE compared to actual AOE nukers... GG Oh and anyone who says... "So what if they have Shields, CC, and ZHonyas... just bait it out before you Ult, Git Gud." You are the god damn Mid. You are "supposed" to be the main threat. Why the hell would anyone smart NOT hold their CC etc indefinitely just for your ultimates? You can MAYBE mind**** them a few times if you are a few divisions above them but its not realistic. Come on.

Well in low elo when you get auto-filled as Support you think... "I need to pick a character that MIGHT damage carry even as a Support cause my team is going to SUCK.

I like how the damage build gives really high AS with BotRK and two AS/Crit Items. The only thing I don't like about that build is it leaves no room for an MR item if you would need one. Thoughts on swapping BotRK for Mecurial Scimitar? I think the BORK first is a must because if you build any other item first, you are A LOT weaker. BORK first item gives you such a massive 1 item power spike on Ashe I feel its irreplaceable if you want to aim for damage. Mercurial can block magic and cleanse CC but it feels incredibly bad on her because it gives no attack speed and very little AD. If I absolutely needed to build it I might build it 4th and do with either no LW or no Infinity Edge (but there would be a massive reduction in damage either way and the LW item can't be replaced if they have too many tanks). TBH I think its not worth it to fit it into the damage build. The first three items should definitely give tons of AS to feel the power spike; otherwise it really does feel weak. Ideally you should practice her to the point where you move between each and every auto anyways (eventually, its very hard micro); so there's always X probability of you side-stepping skill shot CC they throw at you as you DPS. For the utility build, MAYBE Mercurial instead of BORK (since the BORK is built so late, at that point you might want some defence). Yeah it can be hard to fit a Mercurial into the build. TBH in most games you rely mostly on your positioning/reflexes and either have the peel or don't have the peel (if you have the frontline you can play around it and its easier). In games where you don't have the frontline/peel the QSS is highly unlikely to be enough to turn the tide in any event. You might as well DPS until your team either loses or someone else carries.

: Best Ashe Build?
imo Best damage build... {{item:3153}} {{item:3085}} {{item:3046}}, LW item/ {{item:3031}} Best Ult bot utility build... {{item:3508}} {{item:3085}}, {{item:3031}}, LW item/{{item:3153}} most of the time for Solo Q ops, I just go for the damage build, if Ashe Ult is what your team is relying on for hard CC the game's probably lost in any event
: I can t rank up no matter what i try,
I would avoid playing assassins in SoloQ. Too hard to carry with.
: Kayn is the ultimate Edgelord
What does "Edge" mean anyways? Do you mean that his design suggests that he "tries too hard" to be different, provocative, and/or scary?
: Zed needs buff
He feels awful to play as. Doesn't do enough damage for the sheer amount of trouble and unreliability you have to work with to make it happen.
