There's a reason boots are considered fundamental purchases. The slower you move the less you can chase, the less you can escape, the less you can dodge skillshots, the more time it takes you to return to lane and the more experience you lose from not being at waves, the longer it takes to go through the jungle and help gank lanes if you're not laning, the longer it takes you to rotate means you give up objectives. Movespeed is not the end-all be-all stat, but it's crucially important.

That you do not understand that shows why you do not understand the game very well.

That said, at least you have a champ for yourself now in Cassiopeia.

Judging by the stats of your opponents, you could've easily gone 10-0, they all seem to have played beyond horrible.

That's on Jhin and Shaco. At least 4 of those assists I got were supposed to be kills, but they jacked the last hit.

lol

One game makes you a master, huh? Even a broken clock shows the right time twice a day and all that.

I'm sure the fact that every pro, Challenger and Master player who's not trolling (or playing new Cass) buys boots is entirely coincidental.

EDIT: Also, the fact that you're bottom of the barrel Bronze 5 and have like a 35% win ratio, despite having '3 years in the game'. Maybe it's a sign.

On things that aren't ragging on Ameriganastan for being objectively bad at the game, it's always nice when you manage to claw back from a massive deficit with excellent teamfighting.

Indeed, played a game as Braum(who definetly doesn't suck) Support today and we won our lane quite nicely but all others were not doing so well, but we managed to win by taking the barons whenever we could.
Also because I protected my team with my powerful mustache. :3

I'm also really starting to like Cleanse as a spell against aggressive laners in mid, especially if I'm playing a more control/artillery mage type - I keep getting people to dive me thinking ignite will finish me off only to instantly purge it and subsequently turn things around. Also nice getting rid of things like exhaust and CC, since QSS, even before the nerfs, wasn't really a worthwhile item for mages.

Cleanse is nice, but for some reason doesn't work against Malzahar's ult anymore, laned against one this afternoon, so I was like, "Ay, Malzahar, gotta take something against that ult" But when he ulted me I couldn't use cleanse T.T

Also, his new passive is such BS.

Doesn't negate suppressions, sadly.

And yeah, agreed. I'm not terribly against the CC-negation, because it makes him not useless trying to get his ult off against certain compositions, but the massive damage reduction is pure bollocks.

Cleanse never worked on Malzahar (and Warwick) suppressions, QSS was and still is the only thing that deals with Malzahar's ulti.

I haven't played in a while so I don't know how OP Malzahar is on this patch, but he's pretty cancer from what I hear.

Then again... I missed like 7 updates before I started playing again last weekend so I wouldn't be surprised if they fixed that then. :P

In a 27 minute game against them I missed one skillshot, and that was when my targets where only just in range and they moved aside in the last second. Their reaction time is very slow, I think that's the main reason here.


digging this up but,

the bots are really stupid yeah but they play on zero ping.

Most of the time they don't "notice" the skillshot, idk how to word it, but when they "notice" it they react pretty much instantly and can dodge really well. That goes for them landing spells too. I remember seeing a video where Fiddlesticks bot feared a Rengar while Rengar was ult-jumping him.
