Hey there. Just wondering if there are any VFers who play LoL ^_^. I am super addicted >.<. Add me if you have it Asphyxiati0n.
If you've never heard of LoL before it's a moba (massive online battle arena), and probably one of the most addictive games I have ever played. It has a semi-steep learning curve, but if you're interested and you've never played I can teach you the ropes ^_^.
Well, let's see... I'm usually playing DPs champs like Master Yi, Xin Zhao, etc etc. so there's my first mistake. I'll definitely try more CC characters. ^^ I did go against a Riven once as Volibear and did a lot better than normal. I also went as an Amumu once, but unfortunately I always end up feeding because I jump in with bandage toss/stun in teamfights and then my team runs away! Not that I blame them, I always try to keep positive. I'm sure they had a good reason to leave me there to die after I try to help them. XD It's only when they complain I'm a feeder when I have a score of 3/8/20. Do assists mean nothing anymore? I thought that's what tanks were for. :P
Sorry for typing mistakes.. Using my darn smart phone to type this out. And my fat little fingers always hit the wrong keys.
Oh yeah man, some people just don't know how to play and it's just frustrating as hell because video games are to be an escape, not deal with more "special people" xD , but then again I am a bit more competitive, some people for fun, but winning for me is fun but on not an elitist level, I do remind myself this is pixels and we're all playing for a similar reason, burning time! :P What champions you prefer?
Oh yeah dude, some games, when we lose, instead of trying to unite together, they just have these flame wars and it's like...really? it's unfortunate what occurs in some gaming communities.
Ah Riven was nice, I always switched between Mordekaiser or Ezreal OH and graves before he got the nerfbat. But it really depends what I would play, ever since they came out with dominion, I been playing that but I haven't touched LoL in months.
Ragers don't give a shit if you have assists. You could be 0/10/100 and to a rager you're just a useless feeder.
As far as Riven goes, she's extremely mobile extremely versatile and if she gets merc treads cc becomes less meaningful. You may as well save movement slows for someone else because it doesn't negate your Q hops or E dash for giving her mobility. It's why rivens who practice the riven vs vlad matchup win it. Riven can beat a lot of her soft counters if they practice the matchup/know what they need to build for that matchup. Like vs kennen getting E early and often for safer farming until you have that merc treads double dorans and a hex drinker before going aggro. Riven's strength is that AD scales in triplicate on her. All her abilities even her shield scale off it, obviously her AA, and her ulti increases her total AD during it's activation. If you're having a hard time playing her and you aren't running AD marks and quints instead of armor pen that may be why.
I own the hero and have used him plenty in Dominion. He's not really OP but can be problematic and really look OP against bad players.(He's an extremely good newb/pubstomper) I can see how this guy must look like a god in pre 30 games, but at lvl 30, people usually know their stuff.(Although sometimes enemies still call me OP, after having ignored me in group fights and losing the game)
You see Darius is a high dps glass cannon. Instead of treating him like Garen, you should be treating him like Katarina. In other words, drop this guy first. If he is ignored you will feel the pain that is +25% free armor penetration on top of true damage Guil strikes with a repopping CD if it kills someone. He is a hero built to punish teams that try to ignore him in group fights but is easily shutdown/killed when they don't.
"Einsam und ängstlich irrst du durch die Nacht
Deine Gedanken drehen sich im Kreis
Dunkelheit legt sich auf deine Haut
Es führt kein Weg zurück"
He's not OP. ZERO escape mechanism and rather squishy. However, like Drain said, people treat him like Garen since they share similar fighting styles. Big mistake. Keep him at a distance and grind him down, or hit him with heavy CC and burst.
Darius is a beast if built properly. If built properly your entire team will be coordinating just to take one team member down. It's kinda like a properly built Tryndamere a complete pain in the ass. The issue that I find with Darius is that every time someone tries to counter pick me i'm much too easily able to counter build. Between running ghost and if I need to Shurelyas I become extremely hard to kite. With my tanky dps build of defense boots, frozen mallet or trinity force, blood thirster, maw of malmortius, and atmas I have enough resistances, life, and life steal to survive most things. Throw in shurelyas if they're building going for a super kite team and I become insanely hard to peel. Combine that with only needing to get about 4 stacks of my passive on you before I can finish you off with my Ulti if you're the AD carry it becomes a matter of you're dead about 2ish seconds into the team fight.
About the only time i've had Ashe give me a problem was a game I purposely drew the game out just for the fun of it. Just to see what it would be like to be a 6 item triple elixir Darius. She got strong enough to 2v1 me with the help of anyone on her team including the support but at that point I just baited her in to a chase so our Annie could instagib her and finished the game to show that her gloating was all for not because being able to 2v1 me isn't exactly something to brag about.
Basically you need to treat him like a tryndamere that doesn't have the I don't die ulti. Lock him down, blow him up, clean up the rest of the fight. If you get lucky they won't buy QSS or your over all team comp will be good enough to blow him up by the time he presses that qss. If they're building super tank they're not much of a threat anyways clean up his team then kill him. Sure he'll kill one of you but if you can ignore him cause he's straight tank and go 5 for 1 do it.
I play League every now and then
Im not too bad still learning Ad carry and new champs
Im lvl 30.. about 666 normal game wins~ a little over 100 ranked wins
on there if anyone would like to play
ADD ME on here and or there' I'm a generally nice person all around
Draft isn't nearly as bad as blind pick. I think ranked queues are more trolly and shit than normal drafts. But luckily I had a buddy willing to duo with me since I play normals with him and he doesn't give a shit about his elo. Can't wait for him to get back from vacation so we can get back to it. There's such an elo disparity between us that he's guaranteed first pick he grabs his mid cause mid is like the only thing he plays well and then I just go fill in where ever and we carry the game. I finally got tired of trying to carry people by myself cause of too many leavers. I was finally climbing out when I had a chain of losses due to leavers. So if you're going to do ranked, find someone you trust with your elo and duo with them. It'll improve your chances, but don't let just anyone talk you into doing ranked with them. I made that mistake when I first started playing and my "friends" derped it up and lost me all my placement matches. So don't take the first ranked partner that comes along and when you do decide to take someone on a duo partner play some draft normals with them to make sure you're a good fit.
