    It's in the interest of fun rather than viability. I'm not going to take Ad Janna into ranked games because although she can do a lot of damage she's not Corki or Ezrael levels of viability.

    When we're playing as a 5 we usually beat teams we're against if we play in blind or draft pick and play our strong champs. So we tend to mess around by playing all support, hard random (call a role then hit lock in), 5 man jungle or something like that. We're not playing on the 5s ranked ladder or i'm sure we'd all be playing more traditional champs.

    That is unfortunate. I was hoping more people were in on the inside joke.

    I came up with the name of the thread by thinking most of us hung out on mumble and a large majority of our games were played with that application open. Our mumble server's name is "fish.mumbleboxes.com". At the same time, Djinn would randomly ask people what kind of fish are they and then kick people who did not say they were a halibut. And finally, since every league character had a "the something title", I thought that we were all on the Giant in the Playground forum, adding Giant was good.


    Anyways, when I thought this title, I was giggling to myself like mad and was compulsed to make this thread. Sorry if alot of you didn't get it.

    Nonono, I got it (except for the "giant" thing because, come on, that's a bit of a stretch), but it doesn't make sense as a thread title. So, given my impression, I can only imagine what people who don't frequent the mumble get out of the title.

    Considering some of our other in-joke thread title names that don't make sense, what makes this one so much worse? Also, Phreak always introduces a champion in the champion spotlight that way with "Featuring so-and-so, the something title", so I thought it was a good way to make a silly thread name.

    Yeah, no fish for further thread titles, it's kind of hard to catch.

    And frankly, we've got a bigger fish to fry, like champion spotlights.

    I personally think the current title is a bit ob-skewer.

    Meanwhile, I still love sniping with Zyra's E. Think you escaped? Guess again.

    After playing Ashe for so long, Annie just seems... easymode. Ashe couldn't do head to head; you had to kite and position yourself correctly to win fights. Annie... My god, she has a defensive spell. Upgrade her Q, and I have taken carries from full to half. Oh, and did I mention that Annie has a crowd control spell, and the ability to stun every four shots?

    And that Tibbers is hilarious to finish off the group of 3 champions with for the Ace?

    I got my first quadra, and would've got a penta if Yi hadn't stole kill #2, my first time playing Annie. This is ungodly.

    I'd make a fish pun too, but I'm floundering. None of the ones I can think of are on the same scale.

    In other news: I think I'm currently, like, 14/4 with jungle singed. I suppose there's a reason Dyrus has like an 85% win rate with him.

    Top story today! Fizz the tidal trickster has lost his first League of Legends match after an impressive win streak, thought to be caused in large margin by his precise low-blows with his sharp trident. Thought to be unbeatable and often boycotted for this unusual way to gain critical chance with no items or runes, Fizz had been banned from every single draft match since the news of his tactics became widespread. Recently he had made the mistake of admitting in an interview that he'd never commit such an act against anyone from his underwater brethren. As a result, all the male champions began wearing sizable cod pieces.

    You could flip it that way, although Kayle is better at AD carrying than Teemo, if we're talking in terms of most viable teams.

    The thing I love most about this "all-support" discussion is how everyone has forgotten that Alistar isn't actually a support (according to Riot). So if we're going by sonofzeal's initial parameters, you can't include him anywhere.

    Edit: No, I'm not making fish puns, even for the halibut.

    Last hit with Q only if necessary and to scale your passive; her AA range is huge so no need for it otherwise. Burst enemy with QW when you have passive up. Have your passive up for all teamfights, use with your ult (largest range).

    The threat of egging is just as important as the egg itself in higher level play. There are fewer instances you can go all in on Anivia, which as an Anivia lets you get away with more.

    Even though you never get egged, the threat thereof is important.

    Eggbaiting is also a very, very key part of Anivia gameplay, especially since in all the hassle the enemy often doesn't have time to check if the egg is up midfight ^^

    So I'm unsure of how effective he'll be, but the Kha'Zix sounds entertaining to me, and is the first champion I'm excited to try since I started playing. The evolving dynamic could be really awesome if the power upgrades are actually significant, unlike what I've heard about Syndra's passive.

    And can anyone tell me who else is a void champion?
