Hello, my name is Dr Rick Santorum and I am a Diamond 1 player (~2500 elo). I main the jungle, but also have experience in other roles as well. I started playing in season 1, and have been everywhere from 700 elo to the top of the ladder. I prefer tanky initiator champions, such as Maokai, Hecarim, Sejuani, and Shyvana to name a few. I am currently in team ignite and we are trying to make it through the lcs qualifiers mid season. Even though our roster is changing constantly, our current roster is Fas Scriptor(mid), Acexeca(Ad carry), Myself(Jungle), and our top and support spots are still open and looking for new people to tryout.

I have many animals, 7 kitties and a dog. Their names are vita(in the picture above), oliver, boo, mein, dusty, fuzzums, whisper, and my dog who is named tip(border/spaniel mix, somebody left this poor puppy on the side of the interstate). Surprisingly, all the cats listen to me better than the dog.

I enjoy helping people and will be around answering questions and giving advice. I started an AMA (ask me anything) on reddit recently and expected maybe 10 or 20 questions. I got around 1000 through replies and private messages, which exceeded all my expectations. Due to the sheer volume of replies, I had to cut it short and a lot of people's question's did not get answered. I believe that now I'm on mobafire, I will be able to answer individual questions in much more detail.

Q: I am the designated jungler for my ranked team, Anthrax Sandwich. I have had a good run with jungle shyvana (even though i'm too poor to buy a hybrid penetration rune page for her lol). I have a lot of trouble ganking lanes though - especially pre-6. I run exhaust smite, to help with ganks and duels that could happen with the other jungler, but i often find it just not enough to set up ganks. when should i choose jungle shyvana in ranked teams?

Q: Do you think the new champion quinn should be built ADC, or bruiser?

Q: This is a little bit of an embarassing one for me, but i really should ask it. What should an ADC do when playing against a kill lane? Whenever i play twitch, i always have trouble going against kill lanes like leona + draven

Q: What's your favorite breed of cats? I like tabbies a lot :3

Q: What are the two most important thing a solo top player should do to contribute to the mid-game? Splitpush? Contest Dragon?

Q: What goes through your mind when you choose a jungler in champion select? Tell me about what you think of, before the game starts

do you think trundle will get better when health stacking and armor/mres are more balanced? im talking about as a jungler because ive been using him and he clears fast and can counter jungle good from my experiences

also what is your first 6 levels on hecarim? i normally go W > Q > W > E > Q > R

1) How did you choose your name?
2) Do you play Cho'Gath? If yes, how? (APish, bruiser, supportank?)
3) Do you play ARAMs? Who is your favorite ARAM champion?
4) Who is the most unconventional jungler you have played, and how did it turn out?
5) How do you see the LoL community from "up there"? Do you find the players in low elo different from the ones in mid/high/very high in terms of behaviour?
6) How many times a day do you feed your cats?

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

Vi excels in almost every comp but poke, as her kit is almost a 100% guaranteed chance of killing the carry. I always max her E first, as the higher aoe damage and shorter cooldown makes jungle clear alot faster. Maxing Q gives you a much better cooldown, but usually ganks are finished before you have a chance to get it up again, so one is all you need (in my experience).
