I'll keep her in mind for my next game. I'm genuinely terrible with landing Morg's Q - or at least, in the past I was. I've been landing decent Naut Qs recently, so maybe my aim has improved ^^ Thanks for the suggestion, Jovana :)

How can Malphite win top against Irelia?

I know you didn't end up playing the matchup, but Malphite is a pretty decent pick against Irelia (it has been picked against me in ranked a few times now). He might be a bit vulnerable in trades early on (mainly due to his mana pool), but with some items he should easily be able to survive anything Irelia throws at him, especially because of his attack speed slow. The lane becomes a farm lane at that point, and with Malphite having an easier time being useful in teamfights than her (press R) the pressure is on her to roam or make a Teleport and snowball during her strong mid game.

Can games be won in champion select? I think their team composition is weaker than ours.

Most definitely they can. To be fair though, I've also been in plenty of games where our comp looked really bad compared to theirs and we still won easily simply by our performances in lane.


Grats on reaching gold V :)

Thanks to MissMaw for the signature!

It's been a while since I posted, but it's been school holidays, so I played a few ranked games instead of prepping for next term. I already feel the weight of procrastination as school resumes next week, but here I am, on MobaFire 8D

What I Know
Oops, haven't played LoL in a while - what are the top bans?

What I Want to Know
Why don't I pay more attention in lobby? Apparently I'm top 8D

What I Learnt
I thought I'd beat Malphite top, but his Q is on a lower CD than my shield and it really hurt. But it's k, because like Blitz, Morg just needs to land those game changing Qs every now and then for the win.

What I Know
Morgana first pick is pretty safe, seeing as I can apparently play her top, mid or support. Now just need to figure out that optimal jungle Morgana route...

What I Want to Know
Spellthief or Coin for support Morgana?

What I Learnt
Don't recall in enemy Blue Buff brush on low health, because Jarvan Q.
Don't run away on low health near enemy Raptor camp, because allied Jayce will aggro the camp and they'll target nearest victim.
Hit box of Morg's Q is bigger than projectile - but I was totally aiming for those minions every single time, anyway.

What I Know
Draven/Sona is going to be a poke lane from hell, not going to get much chance to proc Spellthief safely. So running Coin.

What I Want to Know
I've heard that upgrading Sightstone is a waste of money. True or false?

What I Learnt
Not much from this game :/ Is there something I should know about any of these champions that will make me play better with/against in the future?

Best bans at the moment are as followed, though many listed have been heavily nerfed and I'll list the best bans from left to right, all champions in a certain list all have similar power but some are stronger than others e.g. Ekko > Elise at the moment. (In my opinion at least)

Priority:

Strong:
Optional:
That's the list of all "ban-worthy" champions at the moment, any others aren't really worth it, and most of the previously strong champions that haven't been listed have heavily fallen out of favour due to nerfs to itemization, or buffs to other roles/champions that counter them.

spellthief vs coin
It really depends on whether you want the upgrade from spellthiefs or ancient coin. If your playstyle is to be aggressive at all times, force picks with Dark Binding and zone people then Frost Queen's Claim is the better item.

If you're a really passive laner (which means the enemy duo will zone your ADC for free) and you need disengage or chase potential on your team (for example you have a Mordekaiser who has no way to get to the enemy]] then the speed up from talisman of ascension is essential. It also nets you more gold the longer the game goes on. Plus, the health you get for a minion dying can be really helpful especially against poke lanes, since your only sustain is your passive.

tl;dr Coin for teammates that have no gapcloser, Spellthiefs for pick potential and set up for Dark Binding.


upgrading sightstone
Upgrading to Ruby Sightstone is really situational. I see a lot of high elo players do it. I'm not a super experienced support player and I've only been maining it recently because I want to expand my champion pool. If you're a tank ( Leona, Braum) and you really need vision and can't recall to base as often as you'd like, then it could be worth-while. My issue is you're essentially getting 475ish gold worth of stats (through the health and extra ward) by spending 800 gold. The extra ward isn't significant until late game (and even then I'd rather upgrade my sweeper or buy an elixir than upgrade Sightstone).

tl;dr Usually Ruby Sightstone sux.
I am currently known as Sejwoonapiggle on EUW.

@MrMad and Jhoi:

Spellthief/coin: Spellthief for sure, sell it going into midgame.

Bans: I personally consider Tahm a priority ban as well, and I don't necessarily agree with Ekko/Kayle/Diana as priority but besides that agreed. Braum can be considered as well as he's seriously overpowered but not many supports play him.

Oh and I don't really see how Annie/lux/xin are even worth considering a ban either.

Ruby Sightstone: It's decent if you run out of wards stacks all the time and cannot afford to base every 3 minutes (that's usually the rate at which I burn through sightstone stacks)

I don't really see how anyone other than these 6 champs can be considered priority bans when these 6 champs exist.

Darius Garen Mordekaiser Skarner Fiora Gangplank

If you just stick to those 6 you don't ever need to ban anything else.

I thought Talon got banned first every EUW inhouse?
