Some thoughts about Supports in S4

So i heard about the upcoming vision and game flow changes, which really affect supports.

As far as the thing with vision goes, i think it's fair. Now teams and supports must be really carefull on how they want to use their wards and all participate in this. That will allow supports to save more gold for big items. As a sequence they will be more effective late game, given of course the fact that the whole team places wards and uses trinkets.

The second thing is that on supports AP will not only affect the damage/healing/shield done but also the ultility of the ability. This will probably make supports stronger late game and it is possible that buying items like shard of true ice or Twin Shadows(generally every item with a supportish aura/active/passive and AP). The point is, how does Riot know which champs are supports. People always tended to use unconvential champions for any role, will champions like Fiddlesticks or

What I would like to see in S4

Hello everybody!

With S4 being just a few weeks away, it makes me wonder what can we expect from it, and I don't mean just the forthcoming stuff. Since I grew fond of this game lately, I gave it a thought and here is what I would like to see happening next:

CHAMPION'S REWORK


No more new champions, please! Or at least not for now. There is already more than 100 of them and I believe, that except Koreans nobody really knows them all so well. And plenty of them are quite useless, if you ask me (or the community).

I wouldn't mind one or two new champions during the whole year, but I think it would be for the best, if Riot Games would rather take a look at all the useless champions and fix them, so they will be viable for ranked playing once again. So we will see some diversity in the matches, not only the same 10-15 heroes all around.

NEW MAP


Yes, that's right. A brand new map. I don't care for what mode it will be - ARAM or Dominion, but with upcoming "All for One" mode, maybe it will…

Vision Changes

Hello Everyone!





I will briefly cover some of the vision changes coming in pre-season/season 4.



Ward Changes



Riot has added a limit for wards which is 3 stealth wards (previously sight wards) and 1 vision ward per player. This means that teamwork will be superior to selfish play. This also means that the whole team can't rely on the support and have to increase the map awarness themselves.

They have done nothing (so far) to the stealth wards, but they have changed the vision wards. Vision wards are now permanent, but always visible to the enemy, meaning that strategic placement of them will increase their efficiency. This will also mean that you can't have 100% secured bushes from now on.


Map Changes



Riot remade most of the bushes. Most round shapes are now gone and the bushes are mostly line shaped. Riot made this because it makes warding the bush easier, since you couldn't have great vision in a round bush (e.g. blue buffs' bushes).

Riot probably made this because t…

Hi guys, I'm Stattik. Im new in here so I dont really know much of mobafire. I entered here because I hear this from my friends. My friends love to create LOL guides. Today I have created Yorick's Guide. HAHAHA, Its fun to create. I love making builds and guides, especially in solo top champions like yorick. Yorick is one of my favorite champions. So if you need solo top champion guides, just message me. And if there is something wrong in my guide just comment. Your likes and hatred makes me alive...

Season 4 Masteries

So I've taken a look at the new mastery trees for season 4 and although I like the changes overall, there is one thing I noticed that really bothers me.

Btw, you can experiment with the new masteries here

Anyway, if you take a look at the new offensive tree you will notice that they moved the armor/magic penetration mastery from the 3rd tier to the 5th tier, and they combined them into one mastery. Now for champs that build full offense this isn't a problem, but what about those bruisers? In season 3 champions like Dr. Mundo and Shen would typically go 9/21/0 for the 8% magic pen. These champs scale very well off of penetration, but not ability power. With the new masteries these champs will not be able to access that free penetration at all.

Most likely I will end up building them 0/21/9 and getting MS, CDR on summoner spells, and increased buff duration (for jungle) or the biscuit thing. These are all great stats on Shen and Mundo, but their damage suffers tremendously. It just …

What a horrible day..

Woke up at 6 pm..yeah..6 pm! When school start for me in the morning I have to wake up at like 5-5:30 am and I'm a night time person so I go to bed really late (sometimes around 2 am) so I sleep a lot during weekends.

Anyways I woke up at 6 pm. My mouse has been ****ty all day (sometimes it stops working). I've only played 2 games. 1 3v3 to warm up and 1 ranked game and in both of those games it stopped working for a bit. Not to mention I got camped for the 4th time while playing Shyvana Top (would you believe me if I said I got camped in all 4 of my Shyv Top games? >.>)

Such a bad day. I won't be going to bed anytime soon so hopefully things improve..

Feel bored with bad score...

Hey, what's up!


My name is jokersprank but my reals name will be a secret xD. I'm playing on the EUW server and my summoner name is nighttray00 and I'm called night (so many names...). At the moment I'm not playing ranked cause I did a break in the winter (trauma from one game). But it's soon S4 so I will start there some time.

This was a lot about me. Well, let's come to the real subject. I've played yesterday night Ahri. I bought her a long time ago, just I didn't play her (passionate Teemo-player here). She is a funny champion but i suck at her and somehow I tend to throw games with her. So here comes my question; How did I win? Seriously, I had a really good start and then died a few times too much. 5/6/8 or so were my states. The other team were also solala but it was only the 20-minute-mark. Why did they surrender? Really I just don't know why people just give up. That's also the reason I'm so bored playing LOL.

There is always …

Learning Top

I decided that I needed to challenge myself more in the game. While I'm not a perfect ADC, I still feel really comfortable with the role and almost always do a great job playing that role. I tend to get bored with things quite quickly/easily, so I figured I would learn how to play a new role before I got sick of playing League.

At first I picked mid. I bought Annie and started learning how to lane mid. It was fun, pretty challenging and by far more difficult then ADC'ing. Lol. After I got my *** kicked quite a few times I thought that maybe mid was....well too much. I thought seriously about learning jungle. I even played bot games with Udyr to try to get a good feel for Jungle. But I learned that I wasn't the best at keep time on my buffs. I knew that in a real game, I would have been demolished in the first 5 minutes.

Then I came to top. I bought Riven forever ago after I was bullied into top lane one game. I build her tankier than most. But I can't stand how that ***** will die fa
