Learnin' the ropes!

Who am I?

Hi! I'm GeekNeff/Gunnysack Man. I get called Neff or Gunny a lot. No, I was not in the military, and no, I don't plan to be. I live with my parents in Everett Washington and I'm currently going to school at Everett Community College. I have not yet figured out which degree I am going to pursue, but I know that I want to. I love art, games and my family.



Life before Leagues

Two years ago I used to play a lot of Garry's Mod. 1500-hours-in-two-years a lot. Through my constant exposure to Steam I noticed DotA 2 on the front page one day. Only having heard the name on a basshunter song. So I researched it, figured out what it is and then tried it out. It sucked. I didn't know what in the world I was doing, the people were rude and not helpful at all. I had enough of DotA 2 after one game and never picked it up again.

About a month or so after finding DotA 2 I was talking with a friend of mine over a game of Warhammer 40k. He mentioned how this game called League of Legends was…

WTF Is Up With Ranked?!?!

Yeah know, sometimes I do lose games because I'm a ****ing idiot. But ever since I started playing ranked this damn season I've had nothing but the worst teams NA. I always get a team where someone dc's all game or my supp doesn't act like a supp. Like seriously it never fails. Now Im stuck in ****ing Bronze until I can get back out. I love it. From Silver 3 to ****ing Bronze. How cute is that? Idk what's up with ranked man, but it needs to be figured out fast. Seriously.

Almost ANY champion can be a support

Greetings and Salutations, It is I, MyBloodisBlack with yet another blog which will hopefully be more successful and alot more pleasant than my last blog that caused alot of issues and has taken my a while to get the confidence back to do another of these.

Since the pre-season of Season 4, the support role has become alot more player friendly due to the burden of warding being shared amongst team mates instead of the support rushing around the map getting bollocked for not warding then bollocked for not being with the team (A lose/lose situation if there ever was one).

But I have started to notice that some champions who may not be classed as support are actually pretty strong candidates for a good "Break the meta" as they say and I am about to mention a few that some of you may think "Oh god here we go" but seriously when you try it you may find some of them are actually decent support champions...so lets start with a absurd one to really confuse the enemy.

JINX

Now I know what so

How Do I Become A Better Player

Hey, is it me or everyone else, but when i play lol i like to have fun, and change things up a bit and i think (in my head) that the community would welcome change or help support my experiments like APC Kayle Bot,
but no... im just met with negative comments and not great team mates which result in me having bad games as i feel like ****,

Is there any way of me becoming a better meta player e.g. where can i learn to play kayle/ other champs

Hello world!

hello all! I am rather new to the Mobafire community, only just joined, but have been looking up guides for months. I would LOVE some tips, tricks, or people to play with. I usually go top with tanks, but sometimes i go bot with Ashe or Master Yi. I probably won't be writing guides any time soon, as I get all my builds from guides on Mobafire, and I'm not that knowledgeable about items. So, I hope you've enjoyed this first blog post of mine, and as always, feel free to drop a comment!

Champion Picks and the Developing Meta

Today, I would like to touch on a controversial subject, that is viewed differently by different people. There seems to be a common misunderstanding about champion picks in relation to the meta, and why you pick what champion when. This can lead to arguments, often in lower elo, about picking a certain champion versus another. You may even see very low rated players offering advice, so as to say something like,"What? Why would you pick lux against zed?" or "I always win lane as X champion vs Y champion."

Now, I am not going to specifically say that counter-picks don't exist or don't work across multiple tiers, but when theorycrafting a matchup, there are multiple things to consider. The most important thing to consider is that if a matchup works in your favor on paper, this assumes you are playing optimally and not making any mistakes. Most importantly, your own personal skill with certain champions, your ability to pull off different strategies, and how this relates to everyone…

Mobafire Community Cup NA - January

Midnight Marauders has entered Mobafire Community Cup NA - January.

The roster for this tournament: Kid Huston, SummonerName, NikeDragon, cedflame, NordicMessiah, workhorse56, trebor6793.

Midnight Marauders got a bye into the second round. We waited on two teams - "Scarlet Aegis" and "The Melting Pot" - to finish their game before we'd see who we were going to play.

"The Melting Pot" beat "Scarlet Aegis" 36-2.

Our goal for this next game is to do better than "Scarlet Aegis."


Midnight Marauders lost to "The Melting Pot."

Our random entry "cedflame" decided to purposefully feed after he got mad over a disagreement in our Skype call. Despite this, our goal of doing better than "Scarlet Aegis" was accomplished. We didn't give as many kills early, got more kills overall, and lasted longer.

I'm Beginning to feel like a Rat God (RAT GOD!!!?)

I don't even like rap but my spirits are in a funny spot.

I'm writing this blog mainly for myself to record progress on my research but I'll leave it a little accessible in case anyone wants to use the information for themselves.

Jungle Twitch Recent History



He was still good after rework but not as good, after all you had a lane you could take him in now. When League of the ruined king meta came out Jungle Twitch was the best jungler

THE BEST JUNGLER I DO NOT LIE

Most recently they nerfed his early expunge damage, a decent blow to his level 2.

Twitch as of Now



Less Ward Coverage +
More Gold from Jungle +

Itemization? Explained below
Metagame position Explained below

I have played a few games and I can safely say Twitch is the assassin who assassinates assassins.

Like if you sent one bear out to go eat other bears. How do you out play khaz'ix?
2 shot him before he hits you? Seems legit.
