Doesn't much explain why I'm getting my dick stomped in in practically all my solo pug games though. I expect to lose, yes, but when I used to win maybe 75% of my pugs and now it's close to something like 25% I wonder if there isn't something fucked up.

Oh well, I'll see if in a week, they say 10 games but that'll probably be a week for me, if things have evened out.

Yeah, as indicated by my win record lagging behind most of the rest of you, I don't solo queue anymore. This week was the first time I've done so in a while (with the intent of playing Sona and getting blocked every time). I'm still rocking a 50% win rate in solo queue for this week so far, so for me I don't feel it. I was mostly postulating regarding our troubles in Org play.

Getting back on topic of team comp. though, what's your guys' thoughts on Ranged DPS? Do we still need it, or is the meta game's shift to early kills and high HP/armor champs diminishing their usefulness?

I also feel like we've hit a point where we're at "Okay we need a tank, and 1 support champ would be nice, and a ranged carry... but then.... what?" I'm still not sure what fills those other two slots. I would think melee DPS, but what do we put there? Jumpers? Gankers? Tough Fighters? Spell DPS? AoE?

You know just thinking of team comps and the discussion on AoE, you know what'd be a sick combo? Pantheon, Galio, Fiddlesticks, Vlad with some support champ. Galio ult grabs everyone, Fiddle pops in with crowstorm, Pantheon drops down out of nowhere and Vlad's multi attack enemy spells. That'd probably be a dead enemy team right there and that takes care of a lot of the roles and all the champs I know most of us enjoy playing or have at least shown interest in playing.

The timing on that might be tricky. It's more likely we'll obliterate 2 or 3 team members with that, but even that would be some nice absolute pwnage that would grant us a solid lane push following it since most, if not all, our team would still be up at that point. Makes me wonder if what that team needs more is a support to follow it or if it'd be further ahead snaggin' a ganker to help with obliterating the stragglers.


The only catch is I don't know where we're gettin' the Galio from. Also what support champ?

I think Ren has Galio and Glenn has shown interest. Also yeah not sure what support. I'm sure having Nidalee in that lineup is pretty good or even Sona.

I'm just thinking out loud though ^_^ No need to make people swap champs, just sounded kinda crazy in my head (like all things XD)

Morgana.

That's the support champ that belongs in that build. So she can Corrupted soil the enemy team in in the middle of that too, not to mention dark binding stragglers.

In other news I just won a pug game as the tank and didn't have an awful time.

7/10/8 - Xin'Jhao.

Xin'Jhao may be my savior in the "I don't like tanking" issue (Surprise, Surprise, the Demacian). I'm still a little too eager to die for my team but I'm getting better >.>

Also at this rate I fear I'm going need to wait until I can get in an organized game with you guys before I can try Sona because she just keeps getting taken. Her AND Miss Fortune. Those two are POPULAR right now.

Getting better at aiming Emumu's skill shot. Still really slow to me though. His Ult is ridiculous with a good bandage toss or flash. Jungling's coming along faster too. I think I'm gonna main him whenever Rammus isn't on the field.

Two solid articles I read on Runeterra. I recommend giving them a once over and see if any of that advice might help you in your efforts.

So..About That Ganking Thing...

Found the next Journal of Justice article available online outside of the League of Legends client here. This issue is almost entirely about Demacia and Noxus, and Garen comes up more than once.

Interestingly, it mentions Garen having a younger sister named "Lux" and talks about enrollment in the demacian military, and her magical aptitude, perhaps for mimicking her enemies? I smell a new champ here, previewed in much the same way Sona was.

In case you had not heard, WCG World Finals are this weekend and, as we speak, round 1 of the games are being broadcast live right now.

Round 1 is Germany vs China and USA vs Singapore.

Quick notes on bans and picks: Everyone bans Garen, both games have a Galio, a Shen, a Warwick.

You can tack the official forum topic here.

Updates:
Germany vs China:
China was losing the team fight game, but now they are taking it Germany's turrets. Two inhibitors down. Not looking good.

Yep. That's Baron for China...

Yep. China's Kayle is godlike. Germany GG's. Nexus down. China wins.


USA vs Singapore:
Still gankin'

WOW! After a fake Baron attempt at 22 mins in, USA OBLITERATES the opposition in a team fight with solid use of Galio's ult+Flash, Tibbers, and Living Artillery. Only Veigar escaped. Successful Baron after.

Singapore cannot buy a bucket. After USA downs an inhibitor, Singapore's Xin commits too soon and gives up a death. Singapore chases USA out of there base, only to get annihilated in the jungles after.

At 30mins in, Singapore has 1 turret left, USA has only given up two deaths (both from Warwick), and two Singapore inhibitors are down. I don't see how CLG could lose this now.

Which is why they didn't. USA wins @ 34 mins.

Round 2:
In case it wasn't clear, this is a double elimination tournament. So the loser of Singapore vs Germany goes home, and the winner fights for 3rd. The loser of USA vs China fights for 3rd. The loser of the 3rd place game gets 3rd place, and the winner advances to the finals. Loser of the finals gets 2nd, winner gets first. In the finals, if the winner of USA vs China loses, a second match must be played as that would be their first loss.

CORRECTION: today's matches are round robin, so everyone plays everyone once it seems. I think the above elimination tourney is tomorrow.

Bans and picks official forum post.

USA (Counter-Logic Gaming or CLG) vs China (China Hero):

I got these wrong, please read the new picks
BANNED: Twitch, Morgana, Garen, Kog'Maw
CHINA PICKS: Ashe, Shen, Kayle, Taric, Nunu
USA PICKS: Galio, Sona, Amumu, Miss Fortune, Anivia

USA gets first blood off a failed gank attempt by Nunu. Still, word on the street is picks are in favor of China. Still USA laneing stronger so far.

China gets first Turret kill. Team deaths still in USA's favor.

Okay CLG is officially amazing. They just lured China into trying to gank them while doing baron, pulled away from baron and annihilated the Chinese team with no losses. They didn't end up getting baron in the end, but still, killer team fight.

Okay, Amumu's ult + Galio's ult + Sona's ult + Miss Fortune's ult = dead team. China's mid inhibitor is down.

Oh yeah. This is USA's game. Game won at 27 min.

Singapore (Another Story) vs Germany (SLK Gaming):

I got these wrong, and couldn't correct during the match. these are my guesses at the picks.
BANNED: Morgana, Garen, Amumu, Miss Fortune
SINGAPORE PICKS: Galio, Ashe Taric, Twisted Fate, Udyr
GERMANY PICKS: Shen, Kog'Maw, Janna, Karthus, Kassadin

I missed this entire match. Reportedly, Germany won.

Round 3

-=USA (CLG) vs Germany (SKG)=-
BANNED: Morgana, Janna, Garen, Miss Fortune
USA: Kog'Maw,Amumu, Shen, Taric, Nidalee
GERMANY: Galio, Ashe, Sona, Twisted Fate, Akali


-=China (China Hero) vs Singapore (Another Story) =-
BANNED: Twitch, Morgana, Amumu, Kog'Maw
CHINA: Garen, Galio, Ashe, Nunu, Janna
SINGAPORE: Taric, Miss Fortune, Xin Zhao, Warwick, Blitzcrank

Feeds currently busted on both games.
