TSM as try to! remember? In order to recover from their MLG slump in week 4 of the North American LCS! It as obvious MLG are all you bases to belong to us!
I'm curious, why are they like 2 weeks behind? The first two episodes were released in one week and I thought they were going to continue that trend until they caught up to the schedule that they had last season. But it doesn't seem that way, does anyone know why?
@KyokamaruThey're playing against other teams, I don't think you've ever made it past the tutorial...
the last time i played Leage of legends it had like 3 maps.... no phisics and a Warcaft (released in July 3, 2002) like engine.... with a gameplay thats pretty incomprehensible to me.... like killing pointless NPC bots that go in a straight line for XP and buy magic items from a shop that is almost as big as the character itself... its like making an international Sport out of playing Tetris.
That team comp was ridiculous, sure Nasus comes with AoE armor reduction and people can buy BC and LW, but 5 AD is just asking for a bad game. I don't get what the goal is; poke, team fights, picking people off? I get that people play Cait to counter Draven, but I feel like running AP carry Teemo bot lane would have been smarter, especially since he can trade with Draven with blind. Also VES didn't even build Aegis, thats still aura armor, and TSM didn't even build Zeke's Herald with 5 AD. That's pretty troll. That's disrespectful to run all AD.Say its the mechanics all you want, I am seeing bigger problems.
@Caa112 It's cause he's being a jerk about it and they all look fed up. Clearly, all of these guys are good at League. He should at least admit that, but still say there's room for improvement instead of saying the best person on his team, Wildturtle, is just OK. According to that statement, everyone else is below OK.
@Zerox09 Adblock in Chrome like a boss
@Zerox09 Commercials run all throughout any episode of any TV show. So please, grow up Zerox.
@aznsparks @Kyokamaru yeye sure smartguy i didnt. Deffend your little game.. by the way i thought it was common sense to know i was talking about npc-kills for XP aside from it being a multiplayercrap.
@Kyokamaru probs got owned 2 hard by beginners and never made it past level 20
@Averelf never play teemo, he brings nothing late game, and zekes is not cost effective, yes they shoulda built aegis though.
@WskerFan Each LCS team gets $175,000 from riot in Season 3, then of course they get money and stuff from sponsors and even more from streaming. Regi also owns TSM and makes money from websites. And the winner of the season gets 1 million dollars.
@WskerFan if your team makes the LCS, you would make 430 (forgot exact number but very close to 430) dollars per LCS game
@WskerFan More than what you would think would be reasonable given what they do for a living. I'll just let your imagination fill in the rest.
@kozzy1234 Yeah this particular episode was amazing, I love seeing Regi rant and stress the same issue for too long when its not even really the main problem. Kappa
@Zathox It's those big flopping lips going everywhere.
@KyokamaruI'd say it's ignorance in not understanding MOBAs yet feeling the need to pop in and type something negative about one. Not being able to articulate it in words very well takes it a step further.
LoL's the single most successful free game out there, that makes Riot a ton of money despite not letting players pay for competitive advantages. Meaning many people like it and Riot got F2P right.
It's also the top competitive eSport with sponsored teams and streams that are closer to broadcast TV than what we've come to expect from game tournament streams. Meaning it's accessible enough to get into yet technically sound and deep enough to gain a casual and hardcore following.
In other words, Riot nailed it and the game doesn't suck.
In some more words, you're a moron.
@Kyokamaru You don't need to kill things for exp, exp is from being near things as they die, just don't act like the game is boring or easy if you haven't played it at least a few games
Not gold efficient? If you're playing an AP support and everyone on your team is AP damage, sure Zeke's is worth practically 0 gold for your team and you would rather see a Will of the Ancients. If you're playing an AD in the support role and your entire team is AP, you're the only one benefitting from this item, so sure its not gold efficient by 46 gold, but honestly its pretty hard to find good AD bruiser items that give CDR (20%) aside from BC when you dont want to build full tanky and buy things like Spirit Visage. If you have at least 1 person on the team that benefits from AD, say maybe an ADC, then this item is worth 3704 gold when it costs 2550. Not to mention its great if you are laning with a blue Ezreal that wont buy lifesteal, and rushes Manamune and Iceborn Gauntlet and the scrub also isn't using lifesteal quints, this happens all the time. TSM's entire team was AD. I feel like it would have been best built by Nasus or Jayce for the CDR alone.
At 2550 gold cost, 2504 initial value, 1200 gold per ally (times 4) = 4800 + 2504 = 7304 gold value seems pretty damn efficient to me. Also you want to get MR or more lifesteal to counter someone getting Thornmail so.... yeah.
As for the Teemo statement, thats your opinion, and based off of what I just pointed out with your judgement I have no faith in your opinions. Blind, nice single target damage, free wards so that your support can rush gp10 items before finishing Ruby Sightstone so they can afford more Oracle's and pink wards, not to mention fitting in the team comp by doing magic damage, and having good disengage, I would have to say Teemo would be great.
To be fair that came as a result of LoL working out like it did and is pretty much a bid to own the IP in China despite Riot still being independent. $400 million. I'm not sure the game was even funded for much more than $10 million in total before that (aside from the revenue generated).
@frigginjoe Getting a trillion dollars from Tencent definitely helped their cause.
Let him be ... Typical consolites or Dota 2 butthurt gamers. LoL is by far the best MOBA game and the last 2 years by far the most popular.
If someone doesnt like MOBA games doesnt mean are boring , same as any other genre.
Let the haters hate , wont change the fact that LoL is one of the finnest FREE TO PLAY , totally free , games out there.
@Averelf Teemo is not really a viable choice in pro-level competitive play. Yes, that blind is the bane of most ADC's, however, the efficiency of the blinds drops drastically in teamfights as the backline is harder to reach and teemo is easy to kill and easily countered. Moreover, shrooms are not an adequate replacement for wards. Supports, regardless of level of play need to buy heaps of wards as vision wins games. The reveal that shrooms provide is too small incomparison to wards. Moreover, Teemo doesn't fit in many team comps TSM and other teams bring out and also goes against the general idea of "attack damage carry."
IMO Zeke's is decent item in stats and gold efficiency, but getting a zeke's on Jayce would be a poor choice as personal stats items would give Jayce more damage and more stats. Nasus could work, but items like Omens, Solari, Bulwark and more HP/resistance items provides more utility and benefit than +20 AD and 10% lifesteal.
