    M5 is just getting bossed around by all the poke and split pushing.

    Didn't someone once very loosely qualify pro level team make up as
    A. Long rang poke
    B. Tanky DPS/Assassins/AoE
    C. Healers + late game scaling

    And that A beats B, B beats C, and C beats A.

    Right now I think we are seeing a classic Poke Comp from TPA pushing around M5's Tanky DPS/Assassin comp.

    But as the first team fight showed, if M5 can close with TPA then M5 will kill TPA.

    That was an amazing performance from the Taipei Assassins.

    Awesome game. Props to TPA for taking them down. Also, a really good showing of how a team gets a small advantage, keeps the pressure up, and slowly wears down their weaker opponent.

    I'm still not sold on AD carries without Infinity Edge, though. It seems like you really need it late-game. Kog seemed stronger than Ez at the end there despite having way less farm.

    Of course, it'll also result in more people playing it, but that's fine by me.

    EDIT: I keep hearing about M5's aggressive playstyle, so I'd expect that they took advantage of her Bush Dominance thing, did they?

    Well, actually, I considered switching to Zerg Greaves, but nipped that idiocy in the bud. My build was Treads (ton of CC on the other team), Thornmail, Force of Nature, Warmog's, Randuin's Omen, Sunfire Cape.

    I also had red and blue (which reminds me, I should try AP Rammus), for reasons I will explain shortly.

    You see, my team was a bit special. We had Garen, Wukong, Malzahar, myself and Graves. Not bad, right?

    Graves/Garen top, Malzahar/Rammus bot, Wukong mid.

    Malzahar didn't want mid. He also didn't want buffs, as they artificially inflate your stats with little effort, like runes and masteries, but unlike items.

    Yes, he considers runes, buffs and masteries cheating. He doesn't mind other people using them, but will never do so himself. That's how I got blue.

    Our second most kill-happy character was Graves, who went 4/9/4. I went 19/3/9.



    Also, we lost. I called for the other lanes to come help when the entire enemy team was flailing away at our inhibitor/nexus turrets/actual nexus, but they left it to me because they wanted to farm in their lanes. Then they raged at me for failing to deal with the situation because a 4150 HP tank has no right to die, 1v5 or no.

    I have the most amazing luck.

    One thing I took away from there, though. With a bit of competence, Schmalzahar/Rammus is weird but potentially effective. I think.

    Edit: Also, I was informed by Garen after the match that he was reporting me for intentional feeding, because there is absolutely no other explanation for a tank dying. Ho hum.

    If you're playing a hypercarry plan, sure.. I don't think it's as necessary if your team plan should result in multiple viable damage threats, or if you intend to have the enemy worn down with significant poke prior to engaging on them, since both situations reduce the burst load your carry needs to provide.

    Actually. I think they just lost their lane XD

    I'm not sure. The camera wasn't on them for most of the time I watched.

    If that somehow actually makes it to the tribunal, I imagine people will glance at your KDA stats and the report reason, laugh, and hit pardon.

    Also, my mind boggles at the attitude of your Malzahar.

    I think its common knowledge amongst pros that Jayce is kinda OP.

    Okay. So being a european with a life beyond the game kept me from watching the matches last night. Today I looked up the bracket so check out the results and now I'm confused. On the official homepage TPA and Azubu are listed to play in the finals, but there's no result for the CLG.eu vs. Azubu game 3 and I can't seem to find anything about the results of the match on google.

    Yeah, they got outpicked. The picks and bans for 3rd game seemd to be solely aimed at top lane, I'm guessing they were trying to force Wickd out of his comfort zone and it worked out really well. Top lane Singed snowballed hard. To CLG.eu's credit, they didn't try to turtle as usual and played a very nice poke and push strat for first game. But Jayce bans in subsequent games ensured that didn't happen again.

    I didn't get to watch yesterday because damn timezones but I heard Wickd picked Riven into Vlad for easy snowballing and got surprised with Singed pick. Zyra support too strong at baiting.

    Yup. It was mega bait.

    AF banned Irelia, Jayce and Annivia.

    First pick to CLG was EZ. AF then went Zyra + Skarner.
    CLG then went Morg+Maokai. AF followed with Vlad and Graves
    CLG picked Riven + Sona. Then AF finished with a crushing Singed pick. GG top lane.

    CLG did a lane switch, moving Ez Sona to invade red with Maokai to get FB on Skarner. They then pushed hard on top lane, with Snoopeh on Maokai even tri-laning for a long while and got the top tower down early. Meanwhile, bot lane was not doing well, Wickd on Riven forced to farm at tower. Singed managed to remain ahead in CS and levels. When they switched back (Ez+Sona to bot), Riven was slightly behind. But the snowball began when Singed not only outrun a gank by Maokai and Riven, he managed to kill Riven. Top lane proceeded to dominate and Riven became basically a large minion for the rest of the game.

    Edit: Very nice graph of top picks and bans after the semi-finals.

    Top 5 bans: Alistar, Jayce, Annivia, Orianna, Eve
    Top 5 picks: Ez, Shen, Karthus, Sona, Maokai (thats a team right there)
