  1. I think the paragon section needs a new award for those who manage to find pve in a pvp game. Award: The Annoying Splitpusher Reason: Win a game while going 0-0-0 (or at least zero deaths) while having more hero damage than the carry. ReplayID (d09cbdbccddb4f8ca5ff4e994accb878) Avg Elo 1650+. Shoutout to omni for the bruiser wukong build. I messed up a lot of my escapes but it was still a fun match.
  2. All speed and power, wukong gets the core to 0-70% while minion wave and still manages to get it to 20% with 0 minions. WukongCoreDamage.webm
  3. Grudge and I are still on almost every night. Zuimiimi is still in I believe but hasn't been on recently. We are looking for a carry and mid/jungle (I'll take either of these). Elo isn't a huge deal. High gold is sufficient. Primary idea is to find folks who gel with the team and are serious about putting in some practice on their role and on the team. WF 8-10 EST is still the time. Thanks. @Korr
  4. Certain mobs are still marked but offer no bounties. I played 6-8 bot games in the jungle and the pop up still said 300 for example for gold buff. Gold/river can be marked but don't give bonus cp. I never tried it in evasive so not sure if you can get health. I am not sure about green because i forget the regular bounty. Raptors do though.
  5. 1. What is your Paragon username? BigWhupDude 2. Are you requesting a specific coach, or would you like the first coach available? I already talked to @Font in chat who suggested I put in an app. However, I'm open to anyone who is available in my time. 3. Which areas would you like coaching in? (e.g. positioning, map awareness, specific heroes, etc.) Please be as detailed and specific as possible. My best lanes are mid and support but most of the marauder groups that I play with don't have any junglers. I need to work on jungle to fill out 5 mans. My hope is to find 4 regulars and have a few good challenging games each night. 4. How do you prefer to train? (e.g. custom games, quick queues, going over replays, etc.) Quick Queues and Replays. I watch a few diamond games off agora every day. 5. What are your short-term goals? What would you like to be able to do better by the end of your coaching sessions? Jungler is challenging but a critical position. I practice my rotations in bot so I can get to river and level 3 in time. I struggle with assessing the map to make my ganks/invade count the most. Since teams aren't coordinate to invade with me it gets harder to establish enough presence to control the flow of the game. 6. What are your long-term goals? Are you looking to win more in randoms, rank higher, place in tournaments, etc.? I would like to be able to support my team better but also be able to carry solo queue as jungler. 7. What days/times are you available to be coached? I usually Play 8-11pm EST. Any time during then works. Thanks
  6. Eu vs NA ARAM championship battle!
  7. Why don't you find me on the teamspeak tonight? I'll be around sometime shortly after 8 as usual

I need to get them up to par for counter play I do a good job last hitting up to about 10 minutes. Once we start rotating and team fighting, I do a poor job settling back down and getting last hits. Increase pressure early on tower even if solo.

List 3 Counter Picks (Hero + Card) you will prepare for the outfit.(Template: enemy picks X, I pick Y because... or friendly picks X, I pick Y because...) Friendly Pick Phase, Enemy Picks Gideon Counter, I pick Dekker if we have AOE damage (Potentially with Nature's Muse for Cooldown Reduction), or Riktor for pull from the sky. Enemy Picks Revenant, Friendly Team has Good Aoe from Midlane and Ranged Carry, I pick Steel + jewel of the Apostle and aim to iniate mid/late game on rev for Wombo Friendly Picks Sparrow, Enemy Shows Bruiser Offlane like Steel/Greystone, I pick Phase becaue the attack speed + caster convert +hemorrage card on sparrow is too good.
  9. Hey Everyone. It looks like a lot of people are interested in organizing some sort of groups. Since groups don't form themselves, I decided to volunteer some time to organize one myself. After talking to Sindog, he mentioned that what I'm looking for is not a team but an outfit. 1) As a family man, I don't have any desire to compete in tournaments for small pockets of cash. 2) If you aren't already master elo to play with the top teams in public games, there's no point is focusing on competitive games against those same teams and players. 3) I want to increase my skills and increase the chances of getting a good competitive game in public whenever I'm on. Therefore rather than focus on "professional" life, the focus of this outfit is on the cycle of improvement.

  10. I want to play but I'll have my daughter at that point and I'll be trying to put her down to nap. It looks like only 8 have signed up so I'll pop on around that time and see what's going on if you will take very late entries.
  11. I have two young kids. So my play times are after bedtimes. You'll find me just after 8:00 pm est almost every night. I'm happy to try hard with anybody on anynight but I'm not really up for official tournaments because my family deserves my weekend time.
