Adam, it seems like a LOT of damamge to me too, but it's an AP Tristana with Sorc Shoes and 400-some AP, and the rocket jump ability has an 80% AP ratio.  I guess the damage they took before was enough to allow her to knock them all down with the one ability...

Wait.  Tristana has another ability that makes her targets explode when they die and deal more damage in a radius. 

 

That's what did it.  She rocket jumped and killed enough stuff that the explosions from the stuff she killed stacked a bunch onto all the people who were there, then they died and did more damage to those still alive. 

 

Jeez.  AP Tristana is fuckin pimp.

That's probably my guess. We also can't see her runes or masteries and since this looks to be one of those "weird" builds, I wouldn't be surprised if she stacked the shit out of AP per level runes to get even more damage. She looks like she just has a ton of AP and combine that with her rocket jump and explosive shot (which do have somewhat decent ap scaling) it probably just smoked them all. Seems a bit OP but honestly the circumstances were just right for this to work to maximum potential. Then again maybe we'll start seeing Tristana mage mid now XD

It's gonna be very interesting to see how the new Eve works! I'm more excited about Twitch as if most of you remember I was a big Twitch player back in the day. Still, I like the way the new Eve functions and can't wait to give her a shot! I really like the way they're making her do stealth. I feel like deaths by her will be less "god damn it, and there's Eve cause I don't have stealth detection" and more "OH DEAR GOD THERE SHE IS. Can I fight her? Maybe? OH SHIT RUN" in a fun way. More sneaky sneak skill and less surprise buttsechs cheapness.

So I don't know about any of you but I'm getting sick of going back and forth between champs and running into the problem later in the game where I think "shit, what did I buy next for this guy?" More then likely you ignore the recommended items as we've all found something that better fits how we play the champ or it's horribly out of date anyways. Until Riot gives us an option, someone else has created a program called Enigma's Recommended Item Changer. For anyone curious, there is actually configuration files buried in your LoL folder that hold the recommended item stuff. Not all champs are there but for those you can change them with a text editor. This program merely edits or creates those text config files (so no it doesn't fuck with the LoL client itself).

I did have some issues getting this to work when I found out about it a few months ago. I didn't recommend it then because of those issues but I tried it last night with no problems. You just have to stick it in your LoL folder and it should work just fine. If not, well, like I said I had issues with it at first but if you can get it to work I've enjoyed it.

So it's blatant marketing, but this new video Riot Released today was a well put together reflection on champion creation.  I found it entertaining.

So did something happen in the time I wasn't paying attention and did Leona stop being a tank and become a support?  I have now heard from more than one place people call her "Support" and not "Tank."  The hell is this about?

Honestly, I don't know why either but I've heard it a lot too and from what I gather about how she plays support it is by tanking so I've been ignoring it.

EDIT: Looks like it just means instead of using a tank build and summoner spells you use support ones then play exactly the same. Sounds like puposely making yourself less effective. *shrug*

It's kinda weird. Due to her abilities she can fill the bot lane role of "support". This is because her abilities make her useful regardless of items, much like a normal support like Sona or Janna. She has tons of stuns, perfect for helping an AD carry, and she can instantly become tanky by using Eclipse, her W ability. So basically, no matter the item build, she's awesome in assisting her lane partner, which is what a "support" would do. She's still a "tank" because she can initiate and take tons of damage but I don't really hear people refer to champs by the role "tank" anymore since the role can now run under the other primary ones. That is, Maokai can be the "tank" of a group but in general you'd see him in the jungle, so people would refer to him as the "jungler" or similarly with Amumu. Leona's a "tank" but she'd run bot with Graves or Ashe and therefor is running "support" with them.

Looks like it just means instead of using a tank build and summoner spells you use support ones then play exactly the same. Sounds like puposely making yourself less effective. *shrug*

Summoner spells really are kinda up in the air right now, I don't think there's anything specific to any role, aside from smite going with junglers, taking ignite on carries, and everyone and their mom still taking flash (Well that's died down a bit but it's still an insanely useful spell).

As far as item builds, you'd still build tanky with Leona but would be building a bit slower since you're running as support and not getting as much creep kills and get gold through your normal one or two GP5 items and assists. As I said though, you're not really less effective since if you max Leona's Eclipse first then when you use that ability you're basically a rock hard tank regardless of your items.
