At the near ending of Season 2, I'm excited. I started playing near the end of season 1, and I vaguely remember what it was like. All I know is S2 jungle and top lane sucks apparently, compared to S1, from what most people tell me, and the Utility tree used to be broken. I'm glad the mastery changes were overhauled, altough defense tree is OP. However, I could never get over the fact that a lot of things just were never viable in this season. Like, for example hybrids, and melee AD carries. On a similar note, many people think my builds are unviable, and I'd probably agree if I didn't do well with them.

I'm coming to the glaring conclusion, that while I am good with the champions I play and the odd playstyles I do them, (Such as Trinity Force Draven and Vayne, and AP mid Varus or Viktor in general) I feel like this confuses or outright enrages some random team members which ultimately leads to defeat, unless they noticed whatever I was doing was working. (WTF, AP Varus, 6/0? Ok, then.)

A small gripe, but hopefully the changes slated for season 3, will fix a few things and my unorthodox builds, or a few of them will look less silly. They have stated they are trying to make the hybrid on-hit build viable, this would look like an awesome chance to get more Varus games in with a new style. I love playing him as a mage and it really ****s with peoples heads. They normally don't even notice Im actually building AP until about 20 minutes.

Then I think, maybe other champs will be more viable hybrid again, like, legit hybrid, like Old Jax and Kayle. Hell, Maybe hybrid Jayce could be viable. We don't know, but it's cool to imagine it.


The jungle changes particularly enthuse me, I can't wait for the jungle to be more like another solo lane instead of "Pick Nocturne; camp top". And honestly, it will bring back a place for melee AD carries like Tryndamere, and maybe even Master Yi. I personally love those champs but never play them because of their poor place in both lane and jungle.

Lastly, will the new support item overhaul make way for new supports? They said it would be easier for supports to get effective stats, but effective enough for something like Lee Sin support to be viable?


This is just what's going on in my head about season 3, and I can't wait to see the kind of experimentation I will get to do.

What do you guys all think about the season 3 changes?

PS; I'm an editor now, woot. :D

As a jungle "main", I'm interested in the jungle rework and new masteries. Regarding the jungle, I feel like it could be a hit and miss ordeal. It'll either be awful in S1 or too carebear ez like S2. Hopefully, they'll get it in the middle sweet spot where it feels hard but not too hard when jungling. Regarding masteries, I'm hyped. Masteries were a bit bland and they revamped them up a bit at the start of S2 but I still feel like it's lacking. Hopefully, we can find more variety. So in general, definitely looking forward to S3!

Note: Soft elo reset will be great/bad times for players in Solo Queue. I'm personally gonna try to stay away from it for a week so all the "bad players" can get back to their true elo but we'll see. :)

theyre also making more jungle items too other than wriggles

and the jungle is going to make things like jungle tf and jungle ori and other joking unviable jungles not work probably since they said theyll be buffing the camps to make them stronger

Enter your response here...I think this will make ww, trundle and fiddle more viable again as well as udyr.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

Really looking forward to the jungle changes. Maybe I'll actually be able to play top lane again with it being a 1v2

Or you can abuse this period of time to get higher elo :)

I did that at the start of season 2, went like 20-3 in my first games by complete luck and got into the top 100 of EUW playing with all the famous people n stuff

and then I stopped getting lucky and dropped back to 1300

:c

I'm expecting the jungle mobs to hit hard enough to force armor and 5 pots start.

London is one hour ahead of the rest of England -Luther3000
