Difference Between Flex Queue and Solo Queue Grind

Leave a Comment
Flex queue gets a lot of bad press. The skill gaps can be immense, with solo queue challengers playing against solo queue gold players. It's also known as a queue where players don't try very hard, and full of boosted animals. These last few weeks I took the plunge and ventured onto the flex queue ladder alone, bringing my Flex queue rank from low Plat to Diamond 5. What have I found? The results are actually kinda cool.

2017 Best Champions Tier List - Solo Queue Ranked Ladder Climbing - Patch 7.10 Update

Leave a Comment
 Hey everyone and welcome to the latest tier list for Patch 7.10. This one should have come out a few days earlier, but I had to attend a wedding and was out of commission for a bit. The good news is, we've finally isolated the indirect Thresh buffs, and after two patches in a row of continuous domination, he's ready to objectively be on top of the support mountain for the first time in a long time.

Meanwhile, Riot overdid it a bit on the blob, and Zac's bouncing around wrecking havoc everywhere he pleases.

Top Team Comps #84: Map Control Kite Comp

Leave a Comment
The advent of Maokai support being a "thing" after his rework may still strike some as odd, but he's certainly earned the right with his obnoxiously long range engage and huge damage on his saplings. This team composition relies on small skirmishes with their primary initiation being simply boxes or samplings for a quick gank.

It's a bit hard to pull off, but if you can get a bunch of saplings and boxes in a bush, launch a Maokai ultimate on an unsuspecting team from behind a wall and you can all jump in to maul them.

Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 7.9 May List

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone, quick update on the ban list below. I tried to be a bit more consistent with the bans as they vary from tier to tier. Generally I start from a clean slate and look at the stats objectively without thinking about the other divisions, but this time around I think I did a pretty good job keeping it clean.

2017 Best Champions Tier List - Solo Queue Ranked Ladder Climbing - Patch 7.9 Update

Leave a Comment
 Hi folks and welcome to the latest Patch 7.9 tier list! This patch showcases massive reworks on the tank class, and Sejuani, Zac, and Maokai have a ton more depth to their kits now. Unfortunately, it looks like Sejuani's the only one reaping massive benefits so far, but the potential on Zac and Maokai's kits seem like they just need a few number tweaks to bring them over the top.

Let's see how they pan out over the patch...

Weird Picks #80: Rek'Sai Top

Leave a Comment
When Rek'Sai was first released, she was burrowing all over the place. However, after she found her niche as a jungler, she quickly fell away from top lane, never to return except for some level 2 ganks. Meanwhile, as Riot nerfed her for her overpowering jungle in competitive play, she's fallen into the middle of the pack as a jungler.

Let's try her out in a different position and see how she fares!
