Proving Grounds



Information of Custom Game, since I don't think anyone here plays tutorial mode.

The custom game version of the Proving Grounds has slightly different mechanics to its tutorial counterpart and Summoner's Rift, incorporating some features previously exclusive to the Dominion game type:

- Players receive a constant stream of experience and accelerated gold income.
- Health powerups are located at points along the lane.
- Exiting the team's base immediately locks the shop from use. Players may only use the shop again if they die.
- Recall is disabled.
- The fountain does not regenerate health or mana.
- A unique new summoner spell called Barrier is exclusive to this map.



Barrier




Barrier is a summoner spell that is only available on the Custom version of the Proving Grounds. It is a self-targeted spell that shields your champion from damage for 4 seconds. Absorbs up from 125 to 550 depending about level.

I just tried this out and man it's awesome!
They should make it into a pvp match. Has anyone else tried it out ? How was it ?

I hate the brushes. They supposedly are there to give melees a chance, but all I see are happy Heimerdinger campers, Xerath campers, Blitzcrank campers (melee, yes, but hook.) and Nidalee Campers.

Good. Job.
Thank you Byron for 2014's loudest laugh up till today

Yh, it's all about ranged champions and global ultimates or champions with hp regen.

Ezreal
Karthus
Xerath
Morgana
Mundo

As a "exclusive Summoner's Rift" player, I really didn't expect to like it but I gave it a couple of games anyway. To my surprise, it was really enjoyable and I honestly played around 10-12 ARAM games yesterday. I really don't know how people can complain about team comps since it's completely random but I guess I'm missing something here.

Note: Brush on Proving Grounds is pre-fix brush where if you auto attack in the bush, it will grant the enemy team vision of everything else in it so you can't bush camp on Proving Grounds.

Randomly got Karthus > Stats 33/17/38

People often leave after seeing 1 "OP" champion in proving grounds, just like karthus for example and it's really annoying.

Proving Grounds for PvP Please :D

Imho, Riot should make an official "ARAM" to discourage dodging games. People dodge way too much and it's really annoying.

Map is ok by me. I still think there will be many ARAMs played on SR though...
Want to see an in-depth diamond level LeBlanc guide? Come by and check this ;) It's written by Baekstra who is a Diamond LeBlanc main on EUW and being one myself, I can vouch for it 100%!

Yeah if you are going to dodge everytime, you dont like the pick, it takes out the value. But people only seems to want to play all random anyway, where you will get retarted picks, where your team might get full melee. Where you might get no heal or nasus..
