: Textbook? First you decide if you want to go through ban phase and pick phase or not (Draft vs. Blind pick) If you go drafting, the first phase of making choices comes (=no textbook can help you now). Do you pick first? Do you pick a champion that can go on more than 1 lane and thus is harder to counterpick? Do you pick somebody you are very confident with or pick somebody who just counters an enemy? Do you pick to complete a team combo? There are over 120 champions. Some do well with certain champs, some do well AGAINST certain champs, some are kinda good vs everything but don't really counter anything. Then the game starts. Do you roam? Invade the enemy jungle? Switch lanes when they are not going in your favor? Do you ward? Offensively? Defensively? When is the right time for teamfights? When do you use Teleports? Why? The game is about making decisions, not avoiding mistakes. Mistakes occur in mechanical aspect of the game. Decision making is way more important. Tactics of your whole team and your execution of said tactics is even more vital. There are so many possibilities in this game, if you think the games are repetetive and "textbook", you are playing it wrong.
Do you roam? Invade the enemy jungle? Switch lanes when they are not going in your favor? Those are all hardly Decision making and are based on your champion (Which is again textbook) Do you ward? Offensively? Defensively? Yes ofcourse you ward offensivly unless your jungler isnt warding his jungle imo When is the right time for teamfights? Ideally when its 4v5 or bigger gap in your favor When do you use Teleports? Why? This one I dont know for sure since I dont use teleport And all these are textbook questions they WILL happen in every game there is rarely a chance for Unique macro decision making

: 50% of the plays are "Flash + Tibbers = double, triple, quadra".
just as an example do you think you could pull of that kill from Yasuo and then get a double? I think not
JQKAndrei (EUW)
: In Dia + 30% of the champions are viable. Below Gold 200% of the champions (that includes off-meta) are viable and all possible strategies.
Yes strategies are possible..... if your team is willing to listen I mean u cant pull something big off alone can u? not really and if you even try you get reported for "Trolling"
Dr Sup (EUW)
: my laneing pre-6 is the most interesting part and reason i play kata, if i'm against let's annie i try to farm and poke while tanking her dmg (especially with e) and avoid her stun (and keeping in mind that she got a jungler) and when i feel i got her low enough and i got enough dmg to kill her i think try wait for her to just use her stun and hoping for the enemy jungler not to be there. and avoid getting harassed with auto's i think that's what i think during my lane phase in kata vs annie, but sometimes i don't pay enough atention and i get caught. ps: i try to do this kind of thinking for every mathchup it's about creating oportunities, and i also play kata in top, jungle and bot because it's i try to come up with a way to win everywhere
how te hell r u gonna farm? Annie's ranged unless u use Q to farm Annie will still get quite ahead of you and how do u tank w Katarina? I mean if you get stunned away from tower its kinda over tho?
Shiroe x (EUW)
: You can play the game how you see fit. Make every game different. The game is what you make it.
Yeh I tried that once..... got reported for "trolling"
Neonchan (EUW)
: Yeah in unranked everyone sticks to the textbook strategy and nothing unexpected happens...really?
I dont really get it but if thats supposed to be sarcasm... well yeh thats exactly what happens every game is the same basically but meh :D
Dr Sup (EUW)
: i never do the same over and over when i play kata mid, my lane changes drastically depending on my enemy
I dont know maybe you dont but Im about 80% sure that you do this...... Farm till lvl 6 then roam then late game... I dont know enough to talk about that and again I might be wrong but you dont get to do something else and still have a fair chance to win its like " OK do this or loose" and noone likes to loose :D
Neonchan (EUW)
: Then why did Korean teams took over the early game strategy from european teams midway to worlds, then changed back to the korean early game when playing each other in the finals? Shouldn't one be clearly the textbook strategy and never be changed?
Sure I mean pro's can do strategy and all that and high Dia+ aswell but dude Im unranked and not many people are Dia+ or plat+ how about making the game fun for the rest of us?

Becuase Im bad? Who do u suggest Zed? and plus about 80% of champs in LoL are "no skill" and the other are "play after ur challenger u nub too high skillcap 4 u" and also I suggest watching this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsAX8BU_7Rw if Annie requires no skill to play well then pls do that

: Who is a good 4800 jungler ?
Shaco hard to win (kinda) but fun af :D

abdulcool (EUW)

I really cant bro Its 8 ppl max next tourney will probably be held next week if its this popular again :D so yh
abdulcool (EUW)
: I am silver 2 so skillcap2 and can i join?
Sorry there is no space anymore but add me ig if you want to be notifed of future events :D
: btw- Why have you picked Summeners rift? Aren't Howling Abyss better? There is only one lane, you don't need the rules about the side bushes and jungle camps, the bot and top minions can't give one of the sides a advantage by taking one tower (they will do that for one of the sides sooner or later). I was also wondering- you are doing blind pick righet?
If you pick Howling abyss you have to play with ARAM rules which is no good for me and plus with these rules a game lasts about 10 mins however with ARAM longer secondly it should be Draft i think
: Let me in please plat v
Dear sir, I sadly you're skillgroup isnt participating anymore however Keep an eye out because in the coming days because I am sure I will host another tournement
: I'm Silver 2 and would like to join the tournament. :)

Add Zedriw
: Hey buddy I'm developing my own website to host, organize and promote tournaments, and I'm looking for people who can help me to make this possible. English is not my mother language so I need a person who helps me on this, I've already added you on-game and I would be happy to have a talk with you and see if we can make this and other events. We stay in touch ;). PD: nice to see young people developing their own ideas and thiking on improve this community.
Do you have skype? If you do Ill write my name here and edit it out after u add me :P
: I'm Gold 5 and I want to join this tournament :)
You're In!
: Btw the boards links for eatch player isn't working.
: Well as I said- you can get prices from riot so you don't have to pay for it yourself :)
One problem with the website too I cant really use it becuase I cant diffrieate between skill caps
Zedriw (EUW)
: You're In! The Tourney doesnt have to reward money It can reward RP or anything for the value of 20 pounds :D
That website is fabalous ty
: Sounds intresting- Im gold V so skillcap2. But why do you have rewards in money? You can register the tornaments, that way riot helps you out with the prices :) I would suggest that you read the tornament faq: http://events.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/content/faq As for a web page I got a exam in system knowledge with some knowledge in web design. I am currently working on another we design project but can maybe help you when that project is done- the question is, what do I get from helping you out with this? Are you thinking volunteer work? But then again if you register you're tornaments and get them approved by riot, maybe you don't need a website. Edit: you also got http://battlefy.com that is a really good site that can help you create tornaments :)
You're In! The Tourney doesnt have to reward money It can reward RP or anything for the value of 20 pounds :D
: sound like a nice idea i'm a silver 5 player so skillcap 1
Accepted your in! :D

: Reccommned me some Top Laners(for someone who is learning Top Lane)
Darius most OP top ever build him full dmg and u got nothing to worry about.... just watch out for that garen
Minstrel (EUNE)
: That's the attitude! I pretty much only played Shaco in levels 5-22 and most of the time afterwards. That was four years ago, and I'm only getting confident in my games with him lately.
Finallllly I just won they surrendered min 20 xD 4/2/3 :D
Demoyer (EUNE)
: Pick {{summoner:14}} {{summoner:11}} Always go for the enemy adc or mid laner they are easy to one shot Q>AA>Ignite(If he has{{summoner:7}} )>use {{item:3707}}smite> AA>Activate Hydra(Use it as an AA reset) > AA> E > do it fast and he/she should be dead under 1.5 sec It mostly comes with experience and intuition
Whats AA?
Minstrel (EUNE)
: Keep in mind that Shaco is one of the hardest champions to get around, at least in my opinion. His playstyle is unlike most champions'. A few failures may come, don't let them dishearten you :3
u joking? Ive lost like 6 games in a row with shaco and more b4 that first victory in years, LoL nothing will ever dishearten me xD
Minstrel (EUNE)
: It comes with experience, but if you have everything off cooldown and perform the combo fast and correctly, any squishy even at full health should be scared of you. Don't try doing this on tanks, of course. Let your team deal with them.
well Im going into a game with this inmind hopefully it helps
Minstrel (EUNE)
: I used to main Shaco for a long while, and I've played a few games with him recently too. I'd suggest the blue jungle item (if you don't take that already), and squeeze a statikk shiv before hydra. My usual itemization is like {{item:3707}} >{{item:3117}} >{{item:3087}} >{{item:3074}} >{{item:3031}} >{{item:3142}} And if it comes to super late game I switch {{item:3117}} for {{item:3172}}. I also get Ignite instead of Flash. No defensive options at all, and I rarely do that with most champions. However, with Shaco, it's kill or be killed, you need no defense. After you take down your priority target(s), you can ult and Q will be up soon, so you'll be safe. You _can_ one shoot carries, especially in late-game. You Q behind, them activate Youmuu's, autoattack (with Shiv charged), use the active of Hydra and the blue Smite, throw in another autoattack and use E. It's pretty much overkill in most cases. However, you have to keep in mind to _never_ fight straightforward with Shaco. Find overextending enemies and kill them alone. In teamfights, hide somewhere closeby, wait for the teamfight to break out, and when everyone's occupied, Q to the backline and get a couple of carries and get out. Use your ult if necessary to survive.
Ok I kinda get It but just one question when u said one shot carries ummm can u specify up to which amount of health I can be confident in my kill?
alasarcher (EUNE)
: He is meant to oneshot people early and mid game. Late game he has only one role. Splitpushing. Dont even think of being in teamfights as Shaco lategame. Force 1-2 of opponents to come deal with you while your team 4v3 or 4v4 them.
OK so how the fk do I one shot ppl early game then?

Silisa (EUNE)
: It's not a smurf if he's playing on his own account. If he were playing on a new, level 15 account, then, he would be a smurf. Did you play those games (where you got plat people) with your friends or solo?
Friends but they were all new like me
