Riot is totally reading my mind. Ive decided to only buy champions when they're on sale (except for brand new ones) and the last two weeks they've put a total of 4 champions that Ive wanted up for sale. Hells yeah !

Been doing that. Luckily grabbed Rugged Garen while he was on sale. That's one of the only Garen skins I've wanted. Bought Desert Garen as well and that's no longer for sale. Chosen Master yi, though that's probably the worst master yi skin. I want more yi skins on sale.

Anyway..i just...been having a LOT of these back and forth games, but it kinda irks me when the team feeds so hard early on and then decides they want to try and we come back hard only to lose at the end. Irritating. But at least better than just all out bad teams and surrender at 20.

I also don't really understand how Mantheon is viable late game. He's just so incredibly squishy even with tank items and hp items.

You know, there is no reason to play Brand/Lux/Annie when there are champions like Ryze and Cass.

Fools like me, who cross the sea and come to foreign land.
Talking about Riot, I bought Mundo on my smurf last night for ranked games and tomorrow he's going to be in free rotation, omg sometimes I REALLY wanna kill the person who's behind all this.

I think we'll continue to see a focus of ganking mid and top lanes bcause of the increased exp gain they will provide and the continued need to stop the solo lanes from farming up. Then depending on team comps, we'll see either CC heavy junglers or fast junglers. But I think we're going to see a change to how junglers have to play with this patch, which may lead to a slight meta change for optimal performance.

Its my prediction for the change in metagame , we have seen ganks becoming less and less successful in tournament games already because ganking has been made too difficult for them to do it alone and succeed for ganking top and mid[either too fast or too much hp].My predictions were made such that jungling is either going to be much more aggressive and focusing on bot lane or a much passive farm-in-own-jungle approach like udyr/sk/ww , nobody ever picks lee as jungle anymore (maybe except for M5) even though he is flexible at both if first picked.With this observation , i think that the trend is probably going to move to passive farming (we don't even see udyr ganking much in tournaments anymore this IPL4).

Yeah I definitely agree that ganking has become more difficult in the solo lanes, largely due to the strength of champs with mobility like riven, gragas, cass, etc. But the problem with the roaming support becoming consistent on both teams isn't really viable in my opinion because the only support that roams extremely well is Alistar, maybe Leona if you're well versed in her play style. So then that leaves bottom with a 2v1 lane, and one of the few AD carries that can handle this situation and maintain a strong farm is Urgot. If a team gets known for this strat, which is likely in competitive play, then they'll see Alistar Urgot bans almost every game. My prediction is that we'll see jungle Ali, Maokai, Udyr, Lee Sin as frequently as we do now, maybe more with high DPS/tanky tops like Riven, Nasus, Renekton (champs with innate espaces, high hp, and CC) or the CC heavy APs like Rumble, Kennen, Vlad, etc. Hard CC is good for high mobility lanes like Nidalee and company, all the slows, stuns, snares, and high damage.

Well if Cass isn't ganked, she is the strongest AP mid in the game hands down. Brand and Lux use a lot of skill shots that aren't as powerful as other APs and Annie's cooldowns are so long that you need to kill them in one combo or you're pretty much screwed.

Exactly.

There is a risk/reward with Brand/Annie/Lux and with Ryze/Cass, there is just reward.

ryze is just op.cassio is dominate with the right team compo.you can easily counter her with anivia.annie needs some changes.lux from her kit i believe is more support.brand lacks mobility and if you miss all your skillshot then you are ****ed.but i really like brand if you dont go for pure ap and you take rylais and abyssal with a blue you are a beast movement speed quints armor yellow blue magic res and red magic pen
