That was a pretty good video Vapora. I do have one question though. I understand why you would bash on the fact he got a Pd when he had to components for a Shiv but you mentioned that the stats or PD is only a little better than Shiv. Is there a reason why you like shiv better on Graves?
If you found me helpful give me some +Rep :)

Not at all, in fact I prefer PD over Shiv usually, on every AD carry. It's just that once you've built Avarice, there's no backing out of building Shiv. The stats that PD gives over Shiv aren't enough that it's worth building it just because you B with 1700 gold while you have Avarice Blade and Zeal.

Avarice Blade is often a good purchase when it's the biggest gold item you can afford, and so that's when you should build Statikk Shiv imo. Otherwise if you don't find a good time to build it, or just don't want to, then you build PD. If I were just comparing the items themselves, I would say, always build PD over Shiv. But realistically, there's a lot of scenarios where Avarice Blade is arguably an optimal purchase, and once you have that, PD stops being an option.

Statikk Shiv increases burst and wave clear which are the core things on Graves so therefore they compliment him. I'd say that Phantom Dancer is pretty equal considering that it does increase your sustained damage (which makes you better at taking objectives and dealing damage when a fight lasts for a couple seconds).

Thanks to OwenTheAwesomer for the signature =)

Thanks, I generally prefer to take Phantom Dancer instead of Statikk Shiv because of the reasons you two have mentioned, I was just slightly confused, that all. Thanks though!

Few notes about Vapora's video on page 24 (which I hope you actually watched): The note @ 25:29 should be moved to ~26:06, and ~24:20 is missing a note which says "?????????????????????????? What are you doing lol" as you walk out of spawn with enough gold to finish items, then turn around slightly before leaving base to stand idle at one of the nexus towers for a bit before returning to the shop and buying the wrong item (which Vapora does comment on).

Looks like you have plenty of work to do.

Ok, I'm gonna get really real here. I'm concerned. And I also don't like you. But you've concerned my enough with your behavior that I feel like you need help.

First. You're acting like you're already a professional trapped in some kind of hell. News flash. You aren't. You're sitting in Bronze V with seemingly no progress. Ok, ripped that band aid off fast. Now, you completely disregarded Embracing's ENTIRE masterpiece of an on-point comment with some **** about how your computer sucks. Lots of peoples computers suck. Hell, you know GMD? that ***********er plays with like 300 ping constant when he plays with us on NA. People can work around faulty machinery or ****ty ping. It's something you can adapt to.

Next. Why do you have such an awful computer? If your goal is to succeed, why do you not have the proper equipment? How can you not "care" about having the best equipment you can if you care clearly so much about gaining the elo? Is it that you're going "hard mode", with **** gear? Or perhaps mommy and daddy dearest have stopped buying you nice things and you refuse to buy them yourself? It sounds like the latter. You seem like a depressed child trying to cope with things by being good at League. Problem is, you have no real drive to improve. You're arrogant, you're whiney, self entitled. Every heap of critique thrown at you is shrugged off with memes. I pity you, because it must be hell trying to ignore it all, as you appear to be doing.

And I say this all with the utmost respect, as I've struggled with similar issues. For the longest time (and even still now and again) I felt as if the game was self aware, and actively trying to **** me. It's a silly notion, but everyone wants to push the blame off themselves and onto something or someone else.

And lastly, you really wouldn't find a good time streaming anyway. Nobody would want to watch you, or your games, barring the reasons Vapora watched one, which was, to help you out. And you kind of made that a waste of time.


I have no money, but **** it. Bay life.

Edit: Had to leave another game. :/

20+ minute queue timer thanks to Bronze noobs making me have to leave every game, because they just throw all the time. At least that part of the game feels like the division I belong in.

Are you sure you don't have a plethora of accounts on EUW? I always think that might be you, especially when I see that 80 cs assassin mid at 20 min. Oh right, you probably can't play with me if you're bronze 5. Maybe you're that guy who says they're a smurf but plays worse than a silver?

I'm not sure how you were silver last season. You have to be really good to drop that far. I remember when I was bronze. Took me a few of months of staying in b2/b1 and then I went 9:1 in placements and got silver. And I was below average. It has to say something if you drop in placements into bronze. I got the same placement as I had by the end season 4, with a 6:4 finish.

Looked up your lolking. What do you do with your ip? Buy every single rune/champion possible? Surely, that has to work. Who needs runepages?

How can a guy, who actually has decent kda ratios, not carry? I've gone 4:7:8 and still carried. It's not very hard, of course ragequitting, only blaming others and being a complete prick doesn't help

Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!
