Well, Amandus is a really old name. Despite the root of both names being the Latin word amanda, Amandus has documentation far earlier than Amanda as a name. There's a few variations though. In particular, there's a Saint Amandus from the 5th century as well as a Saint Amand from the 7th century and multiple Saints Amantius. If you decide to look that up, ignore Wikipedia as it calls Amandus and Amand the same person when they were not. So, in that sense, I definitely can geek out over it, but it's just that nothing sounds as good as Larkin does to me, for some reason. I'm also not really religious at all, so going by the name of a saint is a bit weird to me.

And I can't say I really fit the definition of that word, but it is funny that there's a word so close to this name I'm inclined towards. Larkin is probably a variation of Lorcan, an Irish name; though Larkin is actually primarily a surname (not that I care), while Lorcan is generally a first name. Caelan is another Irish name, but I don't like it as much as I like Larkin, though I do like it a lot.

Tristram is just kind of a family name in my late grandfather's family, there's a lot of men named [first name] Tristram Coffin in his family.

I finally confessed my feelings to my upperclassman whom I had a crush with for almost two years. I was rejected. He said that I was a little brother to him, and he doesn't want to date those who are really close to him.

And I slipped out from Platinum II to Platinum III facing demotion to Platinum IV. Fck.
Thanks to winston gergill (muh Valentine in 2016)for the sig!

It happens, but I don't think you should feel discouraged by it. There'll be other guys :3

@Bard, all those name discussions remind me of the vampire Armand from Anne Rice. All the options you listed are strong names, I love them

Damn Bronze be hard. XD. Nunu had several moments of disco-ish Nunu. Herp, let me go dive right into 4 of them for funsies without the rest of my team nearby. Hey Nunu we could really use your attack speed slow...nevermind. And kog couldn't really kite or position, so I had to keep coming back and peeling attackers off of him rather than killing their back line.

Maokai on the PBE looks really bad. I don't know what I'm going to do with him anymore. :/

Feeling slightly better about the Maokai changes since I found out his W is SUPER bugged right now. I still don't know how I feel about that ult though. I guess I'll have to make playstyle changes.

I feel like these changes are gonna push him more into the support role, oddly. His old ult, and base damage on E made him a great laner due to the waveclear and dueling power from the ult.

But now his ult is generic big CC the people time and the E is more focused on brush control now.

What do you think, Lugi?

Alright so it's 4 AM so this is gonna be super rambly but here goes.

Saplings now do % max HP damage, taken from the root. That's cool both for a laning top lane perspective and for a jungling perspective. Easier clear on the big camps, and the fact that they last up to 70 seconds means that this is probably the second skill to max after Q. Dunno if the numbers will be right on Q but we'll see. Building on that, because they last long as **** they're going to be great invade wards, since they also do, again, percent health damage and if they're in a bush they get super aggressive and do double the damage holy ****.

The ult change is super weird because it's making him less of a teamfighter, and more of a teamfight starter. Sort of like Nami and Tidal Wave, but sort of ****ty because there's 5 individual roots, and they get blocked by champions. But it's wide as **** so that's cool, but the root doesn't last super long. 2.4 seconds at maximum distance, but at least it's going to hit, almost no matter what. It's almost unavoidable. If you chuck that thing into a lane, you're gonna flash or get hit, end story. Passive change is alright, it's on a cooldown instead of per-spellcast basis, which sucks for people like Karthus and Cassi, but the new adaptive helm will help that.

Idk, he's in a super weird spot right now but I don't think he's going to go down super hard. He's got a lot of AoE damage now to keep up with the damage junglers so I think that's gonna pull him up a bit.

**** that new voice though. I liked super depressive, hang me from myself Maokai. It's what made me fall in love with him in the first place. Now he's some vengeful ****er and I just want "slap ****, **** you magic" Mao back.
