    I find these lists can help at first but you need to figure out for yourself which champs are good against others by trial and error. I find sometimes the way people play certain champs can make just as big a difference as the champs themselves. (in terms of things like aggressiveness in lane with certain champs)
  2. mat888 added a post in a topic Featured Matches   

    If you get lucky you can catch some good games. EG and TSM just played a scrim that was featured which wasn't bad. Though usually when I look through the games I see no names that i recognize.
  3. mat888 added a post in a topic Where's your Smite?   

    Honestly as I jungle a lot seeing people like this is sooo annoying. Is it that hard just to take smite so we don't keep losing dragon every time?
  4. mat888 added a post in a topic Yi buff?   

    they only took 1% off damage to overload from what i've read. While the slightly nerfed the mana they upped the base damages which will make up for part of it early game. As a result they did nerf his early game slightly. But the movement speed on his ult is a significant boost at 6 and his lategame is much improved by the ap ratios as in the long run you but some ap anyway.
  5. mat888 added a post in a topic Yi buff?   

    Ya I was wondering why in the world they decided to buff ryze........
  6. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    I pretty much agree with what you said I think this is more of a communication error .

    I said that you should gank pre-6 with warwick. You should gank pre-6 with every single person but with some it's more effective to gank more and some less before you hit 6. Warwick is one who ganks a lot more post-6 since it's a lot more effective.
    In comparison to a champ like panth or riven he ganks a lot less early game.
  7. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    That was actually a really good summary.

    Thought I have to disagree with one thing. Warwick pre-6 would not be considered a "gank" jungler.

    While you should gank it's not focused on that. Gank centered junglers are more champions like riven and pantheon.

    why does their tower in the background keep killing my minions after it's been destroyed?
  9. mat888 added a post in a topic Poppy video. I finally finished it!   

    no it doesn't but when you end up with +31.17 armour from runes, +6 armour from masteries, 1% damage reduction from masteries and up to +15 armour from your w at lvl 1 that ends up stacking a lot of armour early.

    Though I do agree about the quality of your opponent poppy can beat a lot of bruisers with that base armour increase. They do make it a lot easier if they stay anywhere near a wall though.
  10. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    Well the thing about fid is that his route is so predictable early that it is extremely easy to counter him. You can deny him blue then you can mess up his jungle completely, if not you can just invade the other side and take most of his jungle since he really needs to start blue. Either way it puts him really behind. Even if you don't invade you know his route so you can show up for the second buff spawn either way to steal.

    I do agree though that pheonix udyr is an extremely easy jungle.
  11. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    I just find ram to be a more difficult jungle in comparison to junglers like shyv, ww or lee sin. I just have a lot of problems with rammus jungle ontop of those things.

    Didn't say cho was hard i said that he was quite fun but that I find it better for people to learn jungle with a more standard jungle.
  12. mat888 added a post in a topic Poppy video. I finally finished it!   

    The thing about poppy is with her w with runes and masteries she can have a retarded amount of armour as Bluetoes mentioned. If you take advantage of that you should be able to beat most bruisers.(personally I'm still learning poppy can't seem to get the hang of her, but I have a friend that players her a lot)
  13. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    I find rammus jungle is not at all a good one to start with as it isn't anywhere close to a sustained jungle early and if you screw up even a little bit ur going to die and you'll be screwed for most of the game.

    to that whole list yes you can jungle some of them with ease but personally I'd think if someone wants to learn jungling it is better to go with one of the stronger jungles to get an idea of what to do.

    lol Cho jungle is quite fun, but see above.

    Havn't done trundle jung so I don't know much about it, but I do know that it is considered a very easy jungle.

    I find warwick isn't as easily countered as everyone thinks because at lvl 1 with a proper leash you'll have blue right away, and be at wraiths very quickly. You can then do red even before your smite is back up. After that you just time your buffs and make sure that you're there when they respawn. at that point the small camps don't matter as you should be running around ganking a lot more than farming your jungle.
    Also if they try and invade because they guessed/knew your timer you will be able to beat them or at least sustain long enough for one or both of your surrounding lanes to come help you.

    I find mao will a very good jungler wouldn't be the best one to start with for various reasons.

    Shyv is on my top teir because she is a very easy jungle and you can start with her if you want and if I had to choose 2 champs she would definitely be second but she isn't really the #1 easiest jungler.
  14. mat888 added a post in a topic Easiest Jungler?   

    Definitely warwick as the easiest. He can literally start with any of the jungle starting items and do any route he wants and can still make it around.

    IMO gp jungle is not bad but it is easy to do something stupid and die in your rotation because u messed something up, and balancing ur w without blue after the first one runs out takes some time to get used to, and personally i figure if someone wants to learn how to jungle, focus on 1 thing at a time.

    Again agreed on ww. Fiddle can be done with relative ease I just find that beginner junglers always mess fiddle up as to be a good jungle he needs to get some kills from the lanes so once you get the hang of it you can always try fiddle, but I find him to be a weak jungle in general. If he gets fed he can carry a game but so can a lot of other junglers, e.g. ww, shyv, lee sin.

    If you're looking for 1 champ I'd definitely suggest warwick. Afterwards other junglers that you may want to try are some of the other really strong junglers because they're easier to learn, e.g. shyv and lee sin (those 2 in particular are nice as they don't have mana costs, so you don't need the blue buff except for the exp so you can give it away to your mid without issues)

    I tend to jungle a lot, if you want you can add me in game and I can answer any other questions you may have.

    edit: my IGN is the same as my username here, mat888
  15. mat888 added a post in a topic Recommended Item Changer   

    The important thing is to change the build when you change the way you build a champ.

    There was a champ i found a better way to build and forgot to change it for a couple games and kept getting the wrong items because i kept getting what i was used to as it was already in the top bar.
