: In terms of landing Ssumday on stage that might be a good trade for fans of Ssumday. But from a competitive view, why would GG make it? They have one of the top 3 top laners right now and why would they trade him for someone that hasn't been playing up to his potential and got benched for a lower tier top laner? That's not to say it was Ssumday's fault. On the contrary, 100t had a lot of problems.
Well, Ssumday got benched so they could put Ryu in, and at one point, Ssumday was regarded as a top-3 top laner as well (wasn’t he an mvp or runner-up for a split as well?). You’re right in that GGS problem isn’t the top lane tho, it’s the bottom lane forsure, so the trade may just end up being even for them, but Ssumday has been smashing the academy teams as of late.
: Damn...that's actually a good trade in means of landing Ssumday on the main stage again. The fallback issue however still does come from import matters. GGS already have Froggen, meaning they would have to relegate FBI and/or Olleh to Academy to make sure his stage time returns. It'd force Keith/Huhi to be the only starters, potentially even in international rules.
They honestly could run Deftly/Huhi with Ssumday and it may work. But idk, there was a point Ssumday was regarded as top-2/top-3 top laner in LCS and he’s been smashing in academy. I honestly don’t think GGS top lane is the issue, it’s their bottom lane. Just a thought tho lol

They're 2-8 against everyone else. Do you think that qualifies them as a top team? Because right now it looks to me like they might sneak into the playoffs rather than be a top team. They do still control their own destiny. Win out and they're in. And they do have Clutch and Golden guardians left in the last two weeks. Win them and that increases their chances quite a bit. Lose them and they decrease their chances quite a bit. They also have CLG and TSM left on their schedule. Further, to me, if all you're reasonably going to expect is to get 5th or 6th or maybe pull an upset in that first round and get into the gauntlett, why not just bite the bullet, play the new players and see what you have?
Because they subbed in Ryu, a new mid laner, and they started winning. But ok, yeah, you’re clarification of “top team” changes the argument
: Its just one week in? I don't see a reason to look past a rookie so soon. Talent needs time to grow, and just plugging in another mid probably wouldn't boost 100T into a top team anyway.
Well this didn't age well :B

No, see, its not. Thats the thing. You spend 50 tokens for 500 BE, or a random shard. Guess how much shards are worth? Selling those will always earn you more than 500 BE. I converted and sold 3 shards today, they were all above 600. You were inefficient and wrong.
One, er, Karma, a 3150 BE cost champion, only sells for 630, so no, you're wrong and not guaranteed to net more off of the champion shard. Imagine getting an Amumu or Ryze shard which only sells for a couple hundred. Second, brotha you realize how old this post is? XD I posted this months ago. Don't be silly kid

: im ok with a couple players being foreign, but when its over half the team then that's just dumb. I don't know crap about soccer but I doubt that most of the players are from different regions during international play. look at the Olympics. I know in basketball that foreign players in the nba play for their home countries instead of America.
While I see your point about the NBA, that's a somewhat flawed argument as international competition like they do with FIBA in the olympics is more similar to LoL's all-star events. In non-international play, hence the NBA, which is USA's national basketball league, players from across the globe are allowed to compete, just like how players from NA are able to play in the EuroLeague, which is EU's "national" basketball league. This is common in most sports, but the major difference with LoL I see is that international competition is a lot more common and is treated more like playoffs as opposed to all-stars. Since the teams who compete in these "playoffs" are the best teams that participate in the regular season, I do see and partially agree with your point that regions should be represented by their local talent. However, players should still be afforded the option to seek better opportunity in different regions like in most sports. I like the current rules set in place for NA that prevent rosters from having an abundance of non-homegrown players, and it's a little unfair to call players that have either been in NA all of their career or for a long time foreign-talent. I just said a lot of words, so hopefully I can illustrate it better with an example: Impact is hard NA. Yes, he is Korean and started in Korea, but he has played in NA for 4 years on 4 different NA teams. Strangely enough, he's had a longer career in NA as well, so to refer to Impact as foreign-talent is kind of bogus.

: xmithie was born and raised in the phillippines so hes not a true NA player. even if you do count him that's still less than half the team that is actually NA which is r%%%%%ed. theres no point to international competition when the regions aren't even represented properly
I see your point, but you have guys go from the LPL to the LCK or vice-versa often, I don't really see the issue as this happens in a lot of sports, most notably soccer. If anything, I think that's proof that NA has an attractive market for talented players which is going to make teams better across the board, directly by their presence and indirectly through the different style/experience they bring to the game. To further the argument, what nationality would you call collegiate athletes that go to school in America/live in America, but come from a different country? It's definitely a subjective topic.

Haha I feel you dog, that's why I'm afraid to claim it. First off, it was obvious TL was head and shoulders above every NA team not called TSM. Second, they have 3 import talent players, although they have been in NA for over a year or longer now. Third, this wasn't even the finals, we beat a world-class team in a Bo5 on a given day. But DAMN, did we smack the hell out of IG XD
: I think Korea is a bottom of the barrel region now. Id say NA, EU, and China are the top 3... in that order. We give Korea a pass for continually being trash for a year and a half because it's Korea. China has always been full of a bunch of chokers. Never able to perform when it matters the most. If Fnatic didn't fluke their way into the finals last year, IG would have choked there too.

I think bottom of the barrel is a bit rough of an estimate, although I agree that they're definitely not the powerhouses they once were. I think since it's becoming common to see LCK talent move to other top regions and finding success too, you can't necessarily call them "bottom of the barrel". It's strange because there is a weird sort of parity between all of the top teams today because the styles are so different. Where G2 is incredibly risky and creative, IG are just sheer power and talent, SKT is a wall of mechanically sound play and defense, it's easy to see any of these teams beat eachother including TL. But TL in a Bo5 is like fighting Batman, they may not be better than you in any of these things but once they figure you out, they execute a plan, dominate, and never quit. Will be interesting to see
: Fluke? Absolutely not. I think this shows that when Liquid plays their game and is on, they absolutely can compete with anyone much the same as G2. Once you're in best of 5s, you don't fluke your way into winning. However, both have shown that when they're not playing well, losses result. On par with China and Korea. Not yet. A lot of what happens in tournaments is match ups. When Doublelift was informed it was going to be IG (who picked playing LQ) he said he was glad because he thought they matched up better with IG than with SKT. Korea and China have a consistent record of their teams making it out of groups at worlds. We don't have that yet.
Definitely! I think Liquid is super smooth across all roles and what they lack in raw talent, they make up for with synergy and experience. It's weird, but aside from two games, it's felt like TL has been in every game regardless of win or loss. The one thing that makes me think possible fluke is how cocky IG were through group stage. They had clear holes that TL exploited by repeatedly ganking mid to make sure Jensen wasn't bullied, and after they got punched in the mouth in game 1 where TL came back, they got shook and DL got hot. On the other hand, that game 4 was a ROUTING. After watching this SKT vs. G2 series go the distance too, TL is gonna have a lot of film to work with.

The team I really feel sad for is Flashwolves, they're about to steal 4th from us and they hardly give them the coverage they deserve. Oh no they're not. :) They didn't get the chance because LQ beat G2. And there is a big difference between last year's LQ and this year's. Last year LQ got a chance to steal it courtesy of Fnatic not putting it away and couldn't get the job done. This year's LQ team didn't even leave it hanging to be stolen.
Yup! I stand corrected. I was nervous our boys wouldn't beat a big team, but we came through clutch and dominant. I think we have a chance against IG, they're so talented but they're pretty confident. If they play safer than the group stage it's theirs to lose, but TL is capable of figuring out any team, so in a Bo5 it could happen. It probably won't, but lets hope haha.

In ARAM, I believe your champ is selected randomly from the free rotation and your champion pool.

: Well it's 50 tokens. He only had 44. Do the math, like a person with a fully functioning brain.
I think I figured out what you guys are trying to say. I wanted to buy Zoe, specifically Zoe, through the store with BE, not with tokens. I had around 150, but don't really want any of the champion chromas or higher prizes, I wanted the BE. I spent 44 of my 150 trials tokens. I didn't spend 50 of my trials tokens on the Champion shard because it's random, the BE was more efficient.
AIQ (NA)
: Was it not possible to get 6 more tokens? I have a pass so I don't know. Personally I'd think it would be better to get keys instead? Since you can get BE from playing and keys are much more rare. You even have a chance to get a champion shard. \ You may not feel like that is important now, but wait till you have 350k BE and already have the URFwick and gem stones. Skins is all I can go for now and any Chromas hey add to the BE shop. Regardless the option for at up to at least 10 at a time should be available.
Yeah, ideally I think you're supposed to save the trials tokens to better prizes, but I don't own any of those champion skins, so I didn't see the need to save the coins. I had just shopped and unlocked any chests and capsules I had, and was a bit low but only needed 440 BE for Zoe. I think I'm still over 100 tokens right now and I only had the option of redeeming 1 token at a time :( perhaps they've updated it already

: How come everytime Faker is getting owned
It is tough to see him get beat by guys like Caps and Rookie over and over again, but I think it's more a byproduct of the meta and shifting playstyle. Before where it used to be win lane, win game and Faker was just more mechanically dominant then everyone, he could focus on going aggro and carrying. But now since it's quicker paced and more team fight oriented, he's being forced to powerfarm for late game scaling and I've even seen SKT use him as zoning support for Clid and Khan. I definitely think that the casters give him way more shine than everyone because of his image to the sport and they could definitely do a better job giving credit to the opposition, but I think they've done a fair job giving the other midlaners their shine too. You can't say the casters don't do their diligence analyzing Rookie, Caps or even Jensen in the games. The team I really feel sad for is Flashwolves, they're about to steal 4th from us and they hardly give them the coverage they deserve.

That's what I'm saying, I know it's a little bit of added code but since they offer it, they might as well make it more user-friendly
: or just buy the champ shard like a person with a fully functioning brain
You can only buy random champ shards with trials tokens and champions with BE from the store, so I don't see what point you're making.

Xonra (NA)
: Started opting into more Support because of this as I can at least salvage a lane and make it less of a hard loss at worst instead of most cases where I see supports regularly going 0/11 and the adc either goes along or is the one dragging the support down cause they are too aggro. Bot laners these days are just brain dead and I'm not sure what's going on. And I swear I hate pro play cause it impacts bot so negatively when I start seeing people just randomly pull out them "pocket meta break" champs cause pro did it. So now I see random Sona adc with no Taric, Veladc when the guy has never played it before but "pros play mages, so I know it works". Random Teemo adc into Caitlyn and so on. And the supports are no better where they just insta ban Morg and think that wins them their matchup for some reason and pick just random crap and hard feed.
Same, its hard to support for a bad player but you can still make up for the shortcomings if you're on. And not surprisingly, a lot of throws come from the duo lane because one usually has teamwork and the other is flaming each other. I used to main mid and was about as decent as I am at support, which is better than my ELO but not strong enough to carry a game. I kept getting frustrated because even if I got ahead, if a sidelane lost, I was under constant siege until we got based. On the other hand, I never truly got to celebrate my victories if a sidelane just completely dumpstered everyone because I'd rarely steal a last hit from them as they one man sieged the base. Rare is the occasion that I'm put up against someone without a keyboard, but when it happens, an S+ is pretty much a given. If you saw me play, I shouldn't be S+'ing anybody, makes me wonder with the ELO system sometimes.

I like hybrid builds since you're able to branch off if need be, its harder to defend against, and the ad makes farming a breeze, but shes pretty easy waveclear anyway.

: {{item:3040}} {{item:3115}} {{item:3124}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3089}} {{item:3020}} would give you higher auto dps (her passive makes her auto's scale with AP) Higher ability damage, cleaner powercurve, and you don't waste so much cdr in your build path.

: Can we stop pretending sona is op :/ shes not. Its the single thing that got added in season 8. Some rune ring a bell that makes every champion that wields it op. God... Just revert runes already...
I wouldn't say she's OP, in fact, I think she has a low level-cap because of the lack of skillshots. She's perfectly fine the way she is now, but what if she were a little different? It's just an idea and I think with the run rework, it would be an interesting kit to play with that would fit the character model. I also don't think the rework makes her OP if that's the issue, I think it makes her more difficult to play, but still with a familiar feel as the skills essentially still do the same thing, just with slight variation. As for the runes, I don't really have a preference, I liked having masteries and runes for a little more variety, but the current format has its benefits too. I think since the old runes used to cost IP or BE now, reverting the rune format would be unfavorable for riot since they'd probably have to shell out a lot of free BE to compensate, at which case a lot of low ELO players could just buy champions instead of runes if they wished.

I am totally on board with a Sona rework that adds more variability to her play as a champion (actually put up my own rework idea). She's definitely too autocast heavy right now and there's not much difference between an extraordinary sona player and a good sona player. I think that the note/held note idea is great and makes her play more like karma, which is a direction I think they should take Sona. Great post!
