    morgana just needs a q hitbox nerf a la nidalee to be ok, but since she's so common it's probably better to ban her, otherwise i think banning common champs/champs who counter your champ is the way to go as no one is stupidly overpowered except for maokai

    frankly i think morgana really opened up the support champ pool and her presence has kept tanky melee supports from dominating the support role. if not for the fact that the hitbox makes it easy to hit bindings i would say that she's a support that is not easy to play. i just hope riot doesn't nerf her to make her unplayable as support as in the case of annie

    Alliance take the throne as the new EU LCS champions with Fnatic losing their streak at 2nd place. SK gaming make it to worlds in third place.

    Any opinions on the NA brackets? :3

    Edit: @Michu

    Morgana got a lot more popular recently because of the rise of the best support, Thresh. As well as the popularization of the pick composition of Elise - Morg. Land one binding to guarantee to other, making picks super easy.

    I am super glad though that Alistar is back in. He just never dies and provides so much peel. The Legacy team fully displayed the power of Alistar top with consistent 2-3 man pulverizes.

    Swain has also been picked more recently, im glad too. A lot less Shyv/Renek/Mundo/Lulu.

    I always ban Trist and Leona, third ban depends who opposing cap bans. Fuck those champs.

    well i guess to be fair "opened up the support champ pool" is probably an over-exaggeration but i'd like to think it's a bit broader than just the trifecta of annie leona thresh that was basically every game

    as strong as her q is, it's not specific to her, thresh/leona/blitz a whole assortment of champs can do the same thing. black shield is what makes her really interesting and that's what *should* differentiate between good and bad morgs. it's just way too easy to hit q which makes her an "easy" and "broken" champ

    i think her e is really cool and i think it would be a shame to see her gutted

    The binding is a lot longer though and she doesnt really out herself in harms way like Leona and Thresh. Blitz is just too ally reliant because his follow up isnt that spectacular.

    My friend and I have been practising this Tristana / Yasuo bot lane. The idea is to rocket jump in, buster shot then have Yasuo use his ult to immediately gap close. Nuke the target then switch to the next. It's super fun with communication and both champs are hyper carries when it comes to lategame.

    she's also a mage and naturally a lot squishier than leona and thresh. she doesn't have as much utility compared to leona/thresh.

    there's nothing inherently broken about her except for the q hitbox which is unnecessarily large and gives her a high reward/low risk benefit. it was the same case as nidalee's q spears having an absurd hit box. afaik nidalee's q values weren't nerfed, just the hitbox and that removed the high reward/low risk benefit that nid has.

    all supports are ally reliant, blitz's issue is more of the fact that you either pull a squishy carry and win or you pull the tank and lose

    I want Dignitas to go to worlds ;-; but it just doesn't look like its gonna happen.

    Most likely it's gonna be Cloud 9, LMQ and CLG ( Aphromoo hype) although TSM are good too :o

    When I get to do bans i always ban Yasuo first. He's just so annoying and I can't trust my team not to feed him e_e. I also ban Leona because she is the most frustrating support ever, the stuns just never end.

    Road to Worlds is out, and I am hyped as fuck.

    Teams who are going to worlds so far:
    China : EDG + 2 more teams
    Korea : Samsung Blue and White + NaJin White Shield
    SEA : AHQ + TPA
    EU : Alliance + Fnatic + SK Gaming
    NA : Cloud 9 + TSM + LMQ
    IWC : Kabum (Brazil team) + Dark Passage (Turkish team)

    Any favorites or predictions? A reddit poll was passed and it was predicted that Kabum eSports would get the championship but that's probably BR spam huehuebandwagon.

    Since we are doing a predictions thing for the NFL and CFB why not do it for league of legends!

    Lets start by predicting the group stages with 1 point given for correctly picking a team to go on and another point given to correctly picking the place it will move on at. Then when the knock out rounds start we can pick all of those match ups. The groups are as follows:

    Group A
    Edward Gaming
    Samsung White
    AHQ
    Dark Passage

    Group B
    TSM
    StarHorn Royal Club
    TPA
    SK Gaming

    Group C
    Samsung Blue
    OMG
    Fnatic
    LMQ

    Group D
    Alliance
    Cloud9
    Najin White Shield
    Kabum!

    Bold who will get first, italicize who will get second!

    I honestly can't say, I'm looking forward to this group the most. Such great teams.
    Group C
    Samsung Blue
    OMG
    Fnatic
    LMQ

    Similar to the Group C, but I'm a huge fangirl for All x_x
    Group D

    Alliance
    Cloud9
    Najin White Shield
    Kabum!

    Bold who will get first, italicize who will get second!

    Ya I did the same. SK is getting dead last in that group now. I doubt they play good with him back as well since the whole team will be pissed as fuck at him. Sven just cost them a shot at 1 million dollars so their is no way they will be happy.

    so ive been like trying a bunch of new champs recently off of the champ rotation since i kinda got bored with the 2 champs ive been playing so far

    so far im liking ashe and vi and ahri and talon and kinda zac

    i bought ahri without trying her out first because i liked her design and she kinda fucked me up when i was playing as talon

    [​IMG]

    that was like 4th game :]
    ive had some pretty good games with vi too, but alot of times the lanes feed and i cant rly gank without getting killed bc they just run away or somethin
    jungling is fun

    also worlds are going on(?)

    AP Reksai is crazy fun but damn, Reksai was like old J4. Ganking with her is just so smooth with the tunnel and the knock up guarantees a flash or kill majority of the time.

    POPPY REMAKE PLS.

    Also, has anyone been using ADC Jungles? I've been playing a really good Lulu and TF there. UoL <3

    Yeah, AP Reksai is really fun to play :33

    I played Twitch in Jungle for a couple of games, and it works pretty well! Another really funny thing is Crit Damage Ashe Jungle. The clear is really hard, but it is so fun to come on a lane early game, you do 1 auto attack with the passive and the enemy is half life :D

    The new jungle is pretty easy to self-leash though. I can see Twitch being a thing with easy ganks. Trailblazer-devourer is just so stupidly good with the dps and aspd stuff.

    Yeah, after a bit practice you can self-leash yourself very easy. I know many people who hate the new jungle because they have no idea how do clear it or they say that the clear is way too hard ( I don't really have this problem though, because I play Vi jungle most of the time and the clear is really strong with her shield and her AOE).

    I am also really happy that Reksai gets nerfed a bit. AP Reksai will probably be dead after the next patch (the AP Ratio changes from 1.0 to 0.7 on PBE), but also the other Q spell gets nerfed a bit (Ratio changes from 0.4 to 0.3). Reksai is a 1 vs 1 beast atm O.o

    What do you guys think about some community games? I think it would be a lot of fun to play some games in League with people from the PO-community. :33 (I am on EUW btw ^^)
