Yorick's skins are both amazing. Pentakill Slash? OoT Dante? FFS, even if I don't like this champion I have to buy one of those.
Also, turns out Yorick's ult is bugged. When he does it to you, you can't die, but stay at one hp and technically "die" every time you get hit. Here's an unfortunate Vayne that was ulted and spent the rest of the match instantly dying whenever a minion turned to look at her:
Woooow this is the best free week since I've come back - Vlad, Akali, Ezreal and Shen are all free. Cheeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhh.
Took Vlad for a spin before, he was pretty fun. I had a terrible team but we still won because the game went forever and our nocturne was able to solo baron by the end, lololol. As far as casters go though, I love annie and fiddle so I don't really see a reason to buy vlad.
Edit: Wooow played Akali. Took a couple matches to figure her out, but when I did I went 18/3 : D She's crazy when she has a strong early game, my gawd.
Yeah, you definitely need to get kills in the laning phase to be strong. I'll usually peel away from my lane a lot and go gank whatever's close, she's amazing at chasing people down so as long as I have some help I can usually get the kill. My best matches as her all involve ganking other people's lanes and then spiraling out of control.
This free week is trolltacular. Heimerdinger, Pantheon, Blitzcrank, and Yorick.... ~_~ So many missed blitz grabs and so many kids playing ineffective champions. Hopefully Yorick gets buffed soon.
So when's the patch gonna be coming then? I thought it'd be Tuesday, then they said "Naw, Wednesday cause of July 4th", and now it's Thursday and I'm just like wars patch?
They also need to buff Panth if he's gonna be free, when I join a match and my team has Panth and Yorick it's kind of heart-breaking.
I actually had a Nidalee yell at me because I picked amumu when someone else had already picked taric. I was like and she goes "TARIC'S A TANK WHY WOULD YOU PICK ANOTHER TANK". Then she starts feeding hard in her lane and she's like "OMG STOP KILLING MOBS IN THE FOREST AND COME HELP ME"
I think I'm at the point where I can only play with full teams of people, even if they're my feed-tacular friends.
Oh also, club won its first ranked match today. : D Wasn't a full 5 man, just me and imhilion, but we still won so it's all gewwwwd.
Edit: PATCH DAY WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
oh dude don't even worry about it. I haven't played since I gave it to you, so it's not like I'm going to again lol. And try not to get banned so quickly from League - most of us actually play it pretty regularly now and there's nothing like 5 man ganks at mid to start the game.
I don't even know what I got banned for this time, it was a tribunal thing. I pretty much won every game the last week that I did play (with Paul dominating every lane every game) and then I started my job, came back at the end of the work week and apparently I've been banned the whole time with two weeks to go.
Yeah, I'm getting spoiled. Did some premades tonight with a mishmash group of kids I know from college, kids I know from anime club, and kids I know from WoW. We dominated pretty hard.
Also I never talked about this, but pre-patch Yorick was pretty fun, and the satisfaction of doing decent/well as him even though he was considered such trash was pretty nice. Now that he's been buffed he's awesome, I've been playing him a lot. You can build pure dps on him and he reduces 20% of all damage just because of his passive. I think I actually like pure dps more than the tank/dps hybrid build that seems to be the most popular, since he's so innately tanky.
Definitely glad that I can pick him without people flipping shit now. I might buy him when the free week's up, especially because I got blue-balled so hard with Leona. Q_Q
Also Chad I've heard stories about people who get banned, come back, play games like boy scouts so as not to get banned again, and then getting banned again. It seems like if you get reported for anything it shows all your past offenses as well, which means that if one kid gets pissed off cause you destroyed him and reports you for some random thing you didn't even do, you'll pop back up in Tribunal with all your swastika-tacular trolling.
Edit: I wish I'd taken a picture of the match we just played. The enemy team got three kills total in the game, we got like 25 and then they surrendered cause we were doing insane crap like tower-diving at level 11 and slaughtering everyone. I'm loving this pre-made, I don't think I can ever go back to solo que.
