lol if voli doesn't build tank he's useless unless you have nobody who can kite. Vayne, shyvana, ahri, ez counterpicks. He is frustrating in lower elos though

Rageblade voli works pretty well in plat/diamond, not sure of exact but pretty sure it's his only damage item

This is as jungle, too. Seen it work plenty. Some MU are very bad for him though, but we only saw 1 vayne and none of the other stuff, only fotm. Xin/Udyr are/were more broken (but were permabanned when I was playing).

Nah, this was full team promos and nonranked teams with golds/plats vs plat/diamond ranked opponents (at least they were that rank in last season according to their profiles and banners). The games were played about a month or so ago.

Lost a good chunk of those games to high diamond leblancs. God I hate her.

might be a steepish learning curve to getting back into the game again after all that time, since so much has changed. But no harm in trying. Its definitely more complex than hots, items alone make the game very different, and the jungle has had like 3 overhauls since season 3.

The item and adc changes alone took a huge amount of getting accustomed to after like 5-6 months of not playing. The balance is completely out of whack. And yeah, jungle is constantly changing as well. It won't even resemble what it was 3 years ago.

jungle's still my favourite role because of the macro knowledge necessary to excel at it, probably stems from how much RTS experience i have. I like some of the changes, think some others were unnecessary (or sometimes not enough).

I cannot multitask at all for jungle. It's okay when I can just farm up and gear for late game (when I played Kha jungle way back) but now it's so complicated I just focus on mid lane or adc. I played top a bit but... the tank meta is not my thing.

Tanks are minorly resurging now since triple ad comps were so good, hence rammus malphite nautilus (armor stacking wipes them out ez) but now that jhin can literally 2 shot a 5k 300 armour tank that doesn't really apply anymore. If you hate tanks play trundle top, ult makes them not so tanky anymore. That and fiora/quinn should deal with most of the tops you find nowadays

Do you still actively play on NA or no?

I had remembered last night that when I had last played, brand was a new hero, so I looked up when he was a new hero and I last played the game when I was 11 ,-,

I don't actively play anymore, no.

I expect Quinn to get hit with the nerf hammer back to the point of uselessness once they finally realize how dumb that ult is.

Ult is fine for what they want, it's the blind that needs retooling, and I think they'll eventually remove it.
