Ask me anything. If you want to know who to play, when to play it, what to build or how to do it, I can help. As long as it doesn't involve playing bot lane.

It depends. Invades rely on a few factors.

Most importantly, do they start blue? Fiddle, amumu, maokai, etc, yes. Lee sin, mundo, riven, no.
Then you have to assess your level 1 power vs theirs. If you have no cc, it's probably a poor idea to invade on a team with cc.

Some godly invade champs: taric, zyra, Morgana, Shen (taunt lvl 1), Ashe, lux, etc.
****ty invade champs: vlad, malphite, etc.

Also, if your opponents start blue and you can't fight them, you can always steal their red. Ask for a smiteless, though.

Still no, sadly. And I'm aware that he's godly. I will sit down and devote some time to him soon. I really enjoy nocturne jungle though

I've been liking Vi jungle more and more. I feel like she's better at anti-carrying than Noc, but not sure. Noc feels a bit more sustained in a fight...

Hecarim just doesnt feel right to me anymore since S3 hit.

Hey - thanks again for writing the walkthrough on how to succeed in ranked. It's great to know for someone newer like me.

A few questions about top lane. My favorite player up top is Rumble who I feel does pretty well both top and mid. I run into trouble though when my jungler is running an AP like Amumu, Maokai, or someone else - because I want to diversify our damage. So I really need to learn to play some physical damage champs top lane.

I know you like Olaf, and I'm gonna work on playing him, but I seem to have trouble being successful in teamfights with him, even after I win my lane. Not saying that he "falls off" at all, cuz I know he doesn't, I'm just not sure what I'm supposed to do - usually I just try to ult/ghost to their carries, and I just find I'm not as successful as I'd like.

I wanted to ask you about a few other champions I was wondering about - Wukong and Jarvan IV. You mention in your guide that the point of top lane is to dominate your lane opponent. And in my experience playing Wukong, it's kind of about just playing patiently, trying to keep up in cs, and then being more useful than your opponent in teamfights. Same with Jarvan, it can be very tough to go toe to toe with people like Olaf or Irelia unless you get an early kill and can start to snowball.

So do you think it's just not worth it right now to learn these champs? Or do they have a place? And any other top laners you particularly recommend? Thanks - sorry for the long question!

I feel like S3 has disfavored Swain a bit out of lane phase, do you feel that way too? All this HP stacking plus high damage focus seems to make his teamfighting less effective. Do you have any strong items suggestions apart from the usual RoA + Abyssal + Zhonya? Liandry and Warmog perhaps?

Swain lane is just a bit harder in s3. If he gets babysat a bit by the jungler, dear god the game is really bad for the enemy team. Swain is pretty strong right now outside of laning phase.

What are your thoughts on the current state of Viktor? From what I've seen/heard, he's just kinda... there. I haven't seen anyone call him bad in awhile, nor have I seen anyone really bring him up.
