Alright so, as far as anyone can tell, there is no global cooldown in league. Just like in the answer to the question Colin D posted, almost every ability in the game has a cast timer as well as a cooldown. Some abilities have a short cooldown timer to prevent them from being spammed instantly (akali's ult). There are few exceptions to this, most being ...

The one thing I recommend in 3v3 is to play some compositions such as one APC with a lot of control and a safe farming phase (Morgana, Graggy, Ziggs), one bruiser that can be an ADC pick or at least that can hard carry end game (or the contrary) such as Jayce, Vayne, Trynda, Trundle. And for the last role, with my teammates we figured out that something ...

It's pretty situational and surprisingly it also varies by region. In EU Most people play with a supporter while in NA the top 3v3 teams usually play with a Jungler. The good thing about having a supporter is that you have an extremely safe early game and you can chain CC quite well. The top picks for supporters are Leona, Annie and Braum. This is ...

Having a Jungler has 4 pros: You dont need to split the XP on the lanes. There is gold in the creeps which would be unused you can gank easier you have better altair control Having a Support has only the advantage, that you may feed your ADC or APC easier. If you have a Jungler on your team, and the enemies play with a Support you will have one player ...

Yes. I don't know why the top answer says you cannot be kicked out because that is false information. Decay is a thing in league of legends which causes you to lose lp over not being active for a period of time. If you do not play for 28 days from getting into your series, you will be kicked out of it. ...

What many people don't know: Spellshields can block multiple abilities if they hit at exactly the same time. I don't know if this is intended or a bug but it is a fact. Since Spellshields negate all the effects of a Spell (CC and damage), if one of them gets hit by a spell he will just pass through as if nothing has ever happened. Scenarios: Zac without ...

Rather than recording a video, which is computationally expensive, LOLReplay simply records what is happening to the game objects in-game to a special file format, which can later be used to re-create the events of the match with arbitrary graphical settings. This is why you can't open a replay with a video player.

First of all, if you the enemy mid laner is missing in action on mid, you should push the wave to his turret. Then you can either recall, hit the turret, kill dragon or gank a lane. You should always try to gank the lanes that are most pushed. A nice thing to do is to keep an eye on the junglers. Yes, both! If your jungler is top, the enemy bot lane will ...

most of the abilities you are looking for are described here, usually it's a mix of passives that you don't see at start, other than the normal co-op vs ai cheats (which i could not document): http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Doom_Bots_of_Doom hope this helps

The wiki has a good article about skins As a summary: There are 7 Prices For Skins (390, 520, 750, 975, 1350, 1820, 3250 RP) and only the 2 most expensive ones have official names: Legendary (1820) and Ultimate (3250). The community often also uses Semi-Legendary, Ex-Legendary or Epic to describe the 1350 skins since these often were old legendary skins ...

Your banners background image will change depending on what Summoners Icon you currently have. For most Summoners Icons the banner will remain the same (yours) but in some cases it will change to something else. Currently there are 5 Icons that will change your banner: The 4 Spirit-Guard Udyr Icons The Pulsefire Ezreal Icon As you can see those are ...

This really depends. A good question to ask yourself in situations like this is: Would it make any difference for the Team if he ganked more often? In the end, it can be really frustrating to lose a lane but a lost lane isn't a lost game. Sometimes a jungler prefers to farm or gank other lanes. Personally I can see some reasons why Udyr was ...

I wouldn't say it's a good item... It's crucial. Lichbane has basically everything that fizz needs: AP, Mana, Movementspeed and the Best Passive an Item could ever have for fizz: On-Hit Bonus Magic damage w that scales with AP and that gets applied instantly with your Q. There is no Item for fizz that comes even close to this one. You should rush a Sheen ...

There's no reason to build ad on Lux, she doesn't synergize with ad at all, I suppose you only need auto attack to proc her passive, but in one combo you usually only get chance to proc it twice, the ult will proc it once and you all you need to do another auto attack in roughly 5-10 seconds period before you have cd for another round of combo, in this case ...


1

If you're less willing to all in her, I've found good luck with Vlad. If you manage around the minion wave well, her poke should come in rarely enough that you can heal spears back, and also be able to heal up a couple of auto attacks per Q. Pool can dodge her cougar form all in (though mindful that the cast does % damage to you still), and E is extremely ...


1

While she has a decent amount of cc, she has no escapes. If you build AD, most of your damage is going to be over time, save for the few AD assassins like Zed, Talon, sort of Pantheon. As none of your cc is certain (all skillshot, unlike a Taric of Sion stun), you are very easy to get to, stay on, and kill. This makes it very difficult for you to stay in a ...

Knowing when to gank comes largely from experience and practice, but Ive found the following to be very useful in knowing when is a good time to gank. Are the side lanes pushed up/overextended? If your team is pushing, you will have a really hard time ganking unless you want to dive them, which is a lot riskier. Is the enemy laner there? If you just ...


3

Well the thing is: she does scale very well with AP. The passive is strongest really early in the game especially at level 2 since you can burst around 250 damage in 1.5 seconds with Q->E->Attack->E->Attack The reason why lux is built on AP/CDR is because she can really burst squihies down in under a second without even getting close to them. Also if ...


1

Since apparently Im wrong about this being allowed or not (my apologies, I'm used to SO where opinions are basically always bad) Yes, lux passive does not scale off of ap, it scales off of her current level. Yes, Runnan's applies on-hit effects, so it should let you trigger lux passive on each target, providing that they are marked already. I haven't ...


2

I think the Hurricane will proc the passives. However, building AD on Lux seems a bad idea. A complete combo needs only 2 basic attacks to proc all the passives. Let's say you Q someone. Then you throw your E but don't let it explode yet. You ult. Remember that the ult procs a passive as well!! So your Q passive would be consumed. Since the ult itself also ...

Competitive players do not drop CS, generally. On offense, a competitive player will time his aggressive pushes with two things in mind. Firstly, he doesn't want to miss out on his own CS. That is the most important thing. Secondly, he wants to try to push his opponent out of lane when his opponent should be taking his CS, so that the opponent misses ...

Depend agains who you're going and what champion you pick. MR runes are very important to survival in the lane (keep in mind that you want to stay as long as possible in the lane and farming/leveling), and usually you're going against another Magic User (ap). Glyphs are the way to go in those runes Armor runes are also important in the lane for survival, ...


1

I am not a Fizz specialist but I would never play with those runes in mid lane. First of all, you don't need armor penetration. However, what you really need is Magic Resist runes (glyphs). Either scaling (/lvl) or flat MR runes. If you go flat, you will have more resist in early game. If you go /lvl, you will have less early, but more in late game. This ...

Fizz's E is very similar to Elise's rappel in this regard. Anything that is travelling to you can be dodged, but anything that is already on you will stay on you. You're effectively 'un-hittable', but not invulnerable. For example, any projectiles that are on their way to you, such as a cait ult, annie q, etc, will be dodged. However a dot that is already ...

Playful/Trickster can avoid every ability in the game but it cannot remove dots. Some abilities I know for a fact that it doesn't strip are: - Fiddlesticks' drain - Swain's Decrepify and Torment - Malzahar's space aids - The dot from Casseopeia's Noxious Blast and Miasma - Brand's passive (burn a target for x% of their hp) - ...

It's all dependent on which champions you're playing and how you want to play. If you are going to sit back and farm then the something/lvl runes are great since they are more effective than flat runes at the point in the game where you'll start teamfighting. If you play aggressively early game then you will benefit more from flat runes. For example, I ...

A main champion is basically just your best/strongest champion. Really there's not much to interpret into it, it's as simple as that. But yeah often people have different main champs for different situations and/or lanes. When someone says: "I main Vladimir top, Fizz Mid and Leona as a counter to Sona" that basically just means "My best champion for top ...

It's short for saying "I use this as my main champion for this particular lane". When a champion is your "main", it means you use it the most and are the most comfortable playing with. Pretty much what you said already...

Usually Boots are important on junglers but cleartime and gank effectiveness are even more important. The movementspeed you gain from boots of speed isn't worthless but it's also not a huge advantage. Junglers that are currently popular tend to have rather huge gapclosers (there are some exceptions of course like Udyr). If you take Lee Sin for example: ...

I have found that champions with strong early all-ins can lane fairly well against Nidalee. So Wukong/Pantheon/Renekton/Rengar/Xin all can do really well against her. You push for lvl 2 first, then all-in and force her to back early. With that time, you can take a lead in experience and cs, and use that to zone her out. If you can force her to farm with ...


2

I'm assuming you're laning top lane Nidalee. Pantheon wins against her early and mid game, Xin Zhao is also considerably strong against her. That being said, Bruiser Nidalee really is a farm fest. If you play it properly, you shouldn't die against her at all, but you won't be able to kill her either. Indications that you're laning vs an inexperienced ...

Fizz is a champion where you can max any of the 3 abilities first and you would still do everything right. However In high elo play very small things must be respected. Now let's take a look at his ability scalings and cooldowns: Q: Physical Damage: 100% AD Magic Damage: 10 / 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 (+ 60% AP) Range: 550 Cost: 50 / 55 / 60 ...


5

The primary reason is for Wave Clear. Waveclear is important for controlling your lane, and for pushing it to roam. Fizz is also quite a poor last hitter under turret, so any mid laner that can easily shove him in will cause problems. With that said, the Cooldown is also significantly decreased with level, and as it is Fizz's primary source of safety, ...

Usually you don't want to buy boots of swiftness on any champion except on Singed or Hecarim but even for those two swiftness is very situational and it's usually better to buy Ninja Tabi or something like this. Now another thing you should think about is: Can my champion really benefit from the stats on Zephyr? Of course Tenacity, CDR and Movementspeed are ...

Due to the fact that it appears to be the internet connection and not your computer, I recommend having a chat with your ISP. Depending on your internet type and/or location, there are many thing that could be affecting your internet quality. For instance, in the routing to your house, there could be a switch that is causing packet loss, or that has ...

I'd Ancient Coin is the safest pick of all the 3 support items in general. Its gold income may not be the highest but the most reliable one (you just have to stand near minions) and its active works well with every champion/composition because you can use it to engage, disengage or catch people. Of course for Blitzcrank the bonus MS is especially nice since ...

Yes you will still be able to track your Referrals. You will only change your Summoner name (The name that's shown In-Game) and not your Account Name (The name you log in with). A Summoners Name change is basically just a "Cosmetic" Field in the database that's being altered. Since It's a Cosmetic field and not an ID (it's still unique tho) you will keep ...

Okay I main Lee Sin Jungle and so far this season I have a consistant 24/7 W:L in Diamond 5.Now i am not writing a book on the how to pro lee sin, because although I consider myself a good lee sin player, there are many better players out there than me but I will give 1 or 2 tips just for you stuck lower in elo. Don't go glass cannon, you can be 100/0 but ...

You'll also notice a difference with the icon displayed by Nidalee. Why? They give different bonuses. The eye-like icon is used to indicate that you only have vision over the champion, nothing else (Cait's trap and other such abilities). Blood scent gives Warwick : Toggle: Warwick reveals enemy champions within range with less than 50% health. ...


5

There are specific vision indicators as you have already noticed but you cannot tell whether somthing is true vision (ignores stealth) or just a normal vision (ignores fog of war / bushes). This depends entirely on the spell that is cast. A Nidalee trap grants vision to a stealthed target and it used to have the same indicator (second picture) as Corkis ...

After some deeper digging into the league-of-hard-to-find-FAQs I found this article. It states: You will keep your referrals but if they are on a different server you won't see the level. This also means if you or a referred friend will switch servers, he will only count towards your progress if he hits level 10 while you are on the same server. You won't ...

Things that will transfer: Summoner Level Champions and skins (ward skins too) Runes Rune pages Summoner icons IP and XP boosts IP balance Remaining RP (after the cost of the transfer) Hidden MMR value Statistics: games played, takedowns, wins, etc Loading screen borders Your Placement Matches Item Sets * Previous redeemed referrals Summoner name and ...


2

Nope, but just keep in mind that each transfer costs 2600 RP each and it can't be refunded. Also keep in mind: If you're in NA, transfer to EUW, then transfer back to NA, you will have to spend 5200 RP.

It doent show it and you have to be really fast, but if you use the iceberg ability and the enemy is in the very centre, you can use his ult. Its hard to do, generally i just spam it because you have such a small time gap to cast it.

The point of the matchmaking is to play around people your own skill level. 1) With glory days, you make it sound like you guys used to play it a lot. This likely means your MMR is much higher than your actual current skill. It is trying to match you against those higher levels. 2) When you play with 1 or more people, it assumes you have some team ...

Eventually, as you play more games, you will get put against players of your own skill level. The comments above describe how exactly... However, if try playing against bots. For beginners, it's the perfect matchup!

I also agree with Jutschge's answer, with Leona/Thresh/Blitzcrank as a counter support to Zilean, but don't forget the shielders. I just want to add this info since I usually play as Zilean. The common Zilean moves are: (from a less active to a very agro type) 1. Wait on a lane and do nothing. (could be DC) 2. Get into range and Q the ADR (+ or - ...

I agree with the answer that Jutschge has given but I would like to go a bit more into the solution of the problem you find yourself in. Short Answer You should try to play ranked games as a duo, this system tends to work better overall for player placement and skill level. A bit more In-Depth As you are playing normals these tend to be "unreliable" ...

The best way to learn a champion's weaknesses is to play that champion until someone beats you. That will show you how it is done. This is not always an accessible solution - most recent champions cost a lot of IP. But in this case, Tristana is very cheap and there is a permanent promotion which will unlock her + a skin for free. Writing speculatively, ...

In every game mode you have a hidden MMR (Matchmaking Rating). It is based on the Elo System but as already said: It's hidden. Now the most accurate this MMR gets is by calculating your Win/Loss ratio. In-game stats may be important but they aren't reliable. A Toplaner with 0/3/0 Can still win a match and be the deciding factor in a lategame teamfight. May ...
