Hiho guys, as most of you have seen, I play tons of shen, nidalee, tryndamere, jax, and sometimes nasus. All of these on toplane. Apart from nasus all of these provide a great deal of mobility/global pressure. All of them are great splitpushers with good escapability. Splitpushing is the name of the game right now [...]

Hiho It has been a long time since my last post and i apologize for that . It’s been quite the busy time.   Why do professional teams push so aggressively nowerdays?   Basically, they play the game very straightforward and try to destroy turrets.

I don’t even recall the last time I’ve seen a midlane starting with anything else. Starting boots + pots has two major advantages: Mobility and [...]

June 13, 2012

So i spectated dejavue227 (watch him crush in a mobafire inhouse match) in a ~2k elo game. His team fell behind early and was able to turn around the game because they had a “protect the kogmaw” comp (check out my post on Kog’Maw) which was able to just crush in teamfights as soon as [...]
