Fiora - The Grand Duelist

This champion look like she could be a lot of fun. She looks like she would be a really solid solo top, with her passive that give her stacking life regen, her lunge ability will be a great gap closer for ganks and maybe to get away if the ability is a skill shot, and what looks to be the best steroid ability in the game with here Burst of Speed ability. Her ulti reminds me of Master Yi's Alpha strike, this annoys me, I think that riot is making to many champions because there is only so many different ways to make balanced skills and they should work more on balancing rather then a new champ every-other weekend but that's just my thought. Overall I think she has a good kit to dominate top lane and maybe jungle.
Musketeer Skin

Duelist (Passive): Fiora regenerates ?? health over 6 seconds each time she deals physical damage. Striking champions will cause this effect to stack up to 4 times.

(Q) Lunge : Fiora dashes forward to strike her target, dealing physical damage. Fiora can perform the dash a second time within a couple seconds at no mana cost.

(W) Riposte :  (Passive): Fiora's Attack Damage is increased.
                      (Active): Fiora parries the next basic attack from a champion or monster and reflects magic damage back to the attacker.

 (E) Burst of Speed : Fiora gains Attack Speed for a 3 seconds. Each basic attack or Lunge she lands during this time increases her Movement Speed for 3 seconds, stacking up to 3 times.

(R) Blade Waltz : Fiora dashes around the battlefield striking random champions 5 times for physical damage. Successive strikes against the same target deal 35% less damage. The first and last attack will be against the same target.

Nautilus Release Patch Notes

Im not going to go though every little detail of the patch notes, rather im going to touch on the things I like most about the changes and what I dislike.
The Big Buffs:
 Ill start it off with one of my favorite champs that got a buff, Warwick. Warwick got some much needed buffs this patch that will help him keep up with how fast other champions can jungle and his overall damage. The buffs they gave him I think are pretty balanced and creative(adding stacking damage effect of passive.) but I don't feel they touched him main problem which is his ridiculously low mana pool. Riot also gave a HUGE buff to Shen this patch, they changed/tweaked everyone of his abilities. I think that a buff on Shen was much needed but I fell like they just gave him way too much and that he will be nerf him a little on the next patch.
The Big Nerfs:
Sona is probably the champion that got hit hardest this patch by nerfs, to be fair her level 1 damage was way too strong. Riot tweaked her damage so that Sona cant burst someone 1/2 health in the first levels, late game Sona will still be the same. The only other real nerf that I saw was on Vladimir. Which I felt like after last patch he was fine, but I guess the 1800+elo player where saying he was too strong(more team-play, smarter players,people that main vlad.).

Nautilus, the Titan of the Depths

Nautilus looks like a really strong champion to me, but the way it sounds to me is that he keys on his skill-shot  heavily and people are generally bad at skill-shots. I do like his abilities, his anchor move which is like the opposite of blitz pull and his passive which is free CC. Looking at his abilities I think he will be a very strong if not OP in top lane with his gap closer, sheild and aoe spell. There is also that chance though that Riot makes his abilities go good that the damage numbers on them lack making him useless, only time will tell that and not much time at that.
  Just based on his abilities, I feel that be should be build as an AD bruiser, or maybe even a non-heal support with the CC that he has. I could easily see him being built like Irelia, with a Wit's end, Trinity-Force, Merc-Treds, then what ever defensive items you need from there. Anyways I look forward to the upcoming week for this champions release and for the free Ziggs week since I am on a new account now and have not been able to buy him.


  • Staggering Blow (Passive) – Nautilus’ first basic attack against a target deals bonus physical damage and immobilizes the opponent briefly. Staggering Blow cannot trigger on the same target more than once every 12 seconds.
  • Dredge Line - Nautilus throws his anchor forward. If he hits an enemy, he'll drag himself to his target and his target to him. If he hits terrain, he'll drag himself to the terrain and the cooldown is reduced.
  • Titan’s Wrath - Nautilus places a shield on himself that absorbs additional damage based on his maximum health. While the shield is active, Nautilus' attacks deal damage over time to units around him.
  • Riptide - Nautilus slams the ground, causing the earth to ripple out in waves. Each wave deals damage and slows the targets hit. This slow decays over time. Multiple waves that hit the same target deal reduced damage.
  • Depth Charge (ultimate) – Nautilus launches a depth charge towards a target that picks up speed as it travels. This charge knocks up all enemies it encounters while traveling and explodes on impact, stunning the target and launching them into the air.

¢ LoL Pro ¢

So the pro League of Legends team Curse has made a new website that includes guides, videos, news about the team, forums, and info on tournaments. The website is a lot like the CLG and TSM websites in what it features, but in my opinion it is more based on the guides and helping people understand that right way to play LoL rather then just putting all the news about there team and how/what they have been doing.

I decided to post a blog about this because I like anything that helps the community in there play. I think that anyone that plays LoL should look up guides for the champions they play and watch pro players stream to improve themselves. Nothing frustrates me more then wasting 20+ minutes with teammates that have played over 200 games and still don't get the simple concepts of how to play that game.
  My next posts will be about the new champion Nautilus and the patch notes that come out with him, and the Go4lol tournament that is going on this weekend.

Main = Banned.

    So my main LoL account was banned recently, but not to worry I have a level 26 smurf account that I will play and level it up to 30. I'm not to mad that my account got banned, the only thing that sucks is all the IP I lost. I only spent probably $30 on the account over more then a years time, so the money wasn't a big issue.

    The things that pissed me off about this is that I found out through a forum site that some people that get banned get an opportunity to make a new account and level it up to 20 without getting reported/suspended and they can get there account unbanned. After sending tickets on tickets to Riots support one of them finally told me that I cannot qualify for that opportunity because of the reason I was banned. Which pissed me off even more because anyone that get banned has done something wrong/disruptive obviously, but to tell some people that they can have a chance at getting there account back and tell others they cant is just dumb. Honestly the only thing that I can think of is that I spend such low amounts of money on my account that they don't see me as a profit and that there is no reason for them to give me that chance. If that were the case I could understand, but then the support tells me that greed isn't why I cannot get my account back, so im left with using my smurf as a main now. Will have more posts on the patches/new champions soon.
