Weird Picks #52: Tank Mordekaiser Top

Leave a Comment

Mordekaiser is generally played as a Rylai focus champion combined with some burst damage via Protobelt. However, tank Mordekaiser can also potentially work well in the current meta. Check out this quick guide on how to become an unstoppable dragon taming force. Hue hue.

Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 6.10 May List

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone! Here's a quick update to the ban list for Patch 6.10. The most notable change is the inclusion of Lucian up top, along with a general removal for a lot of formerly popular junglers like Master Yi and Graves, along with Taric and Soraka also dropping off the list.

The major reason for this is that the new Malzahar is extremely powerful, and so is Lucian with his new build.

Be sure to check out the regular solo queue list, and the FOTM tier list as well!

Solo Queue FOTM Tier List - May - Patch 6.10

Leave a Comment

Sometimes I feel like these patches hit faster and faster, considering this one's the second FOTM tier list update for May...not that it's a bad thing!

Anyway, the latest Patch 6.10 updates bring Lucian back to the highest spot on the list, followed closely by the rest of the happy trio that's been dominating the FOTM list for months now, Ezreal and Vayne.

The usual suspects remain very high on the list, although Malzahar is mostly played in mid lane rather than every lane (when he's not banned).

Check out the full list below!

2016 Champion Tier List - Solo Queue - Patch 6.10 Update

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone and welcome to the latest solo queue tier list for Patch 6.10! The FOTM Tier list should be updated later today or tomorrow as well, so keep a lookout for that. The strongest champion and ban list updates will be just after that.

Anyway, the latest Patch 6.10 changes pushed some formerly popular champions like Jinx back up to the top, and the new champion Taliyah looks like she's in some need of a few buffs before she's viable for ranked play.

Meanwhile, Lucian's got a new Black Cleaver + Youmuu's build that's absolutely wrecking havoc against the already nerfed tank class. Check out the full details below!

New "/remake" Feature Launched to Combat AFK Players!

Leave a Comment
A feature that's been in the works for quite some time, Riot finally released the highly anticipated "/remake" feature, which allows teams to restart games with an AFK or DC on their team.

It does not require the vote of the enemy team, but it DOES require that no first blood has been given.

I suppose that means if you have someone DC'd from the start, don't try and kill the enemy opponent in the first three minutes. On the other hand, it does sound open to abuse if the enemy notices you have an AFK, waits until you hit them, then runs into your turret...wonder if that's a reportable offense if it's to win? Anyway, don't do that. Instead, check out the details below, slated for Patch 6.11 release (the one after the one with the new rock surfing champion).

Weird Picks #51: Mid Lane Nocturne

Leave a Comment
Played infrequently by legends like Faker and the occasional normal game blind pick, Nocturne Mid has been "a thing" in the past, but never stuck around for very long. It's a build that can conceivably one-shot enemy mages with ease, but may just as easily fall flat on its face.

However, it's certainly playable, and quite fun if you manage to snowball. Check out the details below!

Combo Review #13: Jarvan IV + Anivia + Jhin

Leave a Comment

Last week, LVL 99 Raid Boss posted in the comment section about the Jarvan + Jhin combo, which I really liked, but thought could use an extra little twist, so we've added Anivia to the mix.

The classic Jarvan IV + Anivia combination used to be the butt of many jokes, but together on the same team it's still quite strong! Check out the details below:

Dynamic Queue: Why It's Harder to Climb

Leave a Comment
With the advent of dynamic queue, most of us saw the changes and originally thought it would be an easy climb now that we can get our preferred roles more often.

However, other than for people that have genuinely improved over time, overall divisions have fallen for many players. Why is this? Let's take a look at some of the potential causation factors:
