Weird Picks #81: No/Late Sightstone Soraka Support

Leave a Comment
 Lovingly described as the greediest Soraka build I've ever seen, this strategy was first popularized by a 600 LP Challenger Soraka one trick known as "Seb" on the NA server for his previous gamer tag before he changed it to a few strange characters.

This build is heavily reliant on NOT dying during the laning phase to make use of the incredible scaling offered by the runes and build, but definitely draws some serious ire if your team happens to be losing. Make sure to read through the below before attempting!

FOTM Report: Blitzcrank in Pro Play

Leave a Comment
Solo queue teams fear him, Bronze players despise him, and high level players scoff at him. This has been the legacy of Blitzcrank for as long as I can remember. Competitive play generally relies on team-based support champions like Karma or Braum, and Blitzcrank players are relegated to dominating the ranked ladder. However, lately, that's changing with LCK teams picking him up and/or banning him with increased frequency. Why is this though? If his hook is so easy to dodge, why are pros picking him up now?

FOTM Ranked Solo Queue Tier List (High Elo) ~ Patch 7.12 - June

Leave a Comment
Wow, it's been quite a while since the last FOTM list update, I've really been slacking a bit. Back in action this week though! This time around we're looking at some interesting shifts in the mid-lane with Kassadin back in the mix and roaming mid-laners all the rage.

Meanwhile, Thresh looks like he's ready to take over the top spot on the support list and Rakan's rising fast behind. Draven is also surprisingly high nowadays as a result of his new Death's Dance build, which is super obnoxious to deal with.

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!

FOTM Ranked Solo Queue Tier List (High Elo) ~ Patch 7.8 - May

Leave a Comment
Rakan and Xayah are making quite the showing in Patch 7.8 as two of the highest mobility champions released this year (which is certainly saying something). Meanwhile, the jungle meta is still largely dominated by damage-based burst champions with the sole exception of Ivern, who performs incredibly well despite being a little...different.

Weird Picks #79: AD Bard Top

Leave a Comment
Bard's never been much of a solo laner, but ever since the chime changes in Patch 7.7, players have started considering him as a potential mid to late game carry. His scaling is still very weak if he doesn't get enough charms, but the bonus damage he gets combined with his maximum meep increase allows him to deal much more damage than before.
