Who knows.

I've decided to buy a riot pack for $50. My reasoning: I work now, 50 bucks is rougly 2 hours of work. If I were to grind all the heroes I wanted and runes I needed it would take easily 20/40 hours of play time.

Anyway what was new about the patch?

Yeah, right. I know it's because you wanted to maintain your post count lead, wiping a big thread is the way to go. I lost 500+ spam posts in several mosw threads.

Losing TEAL thread hurt.

HSC (finals for you Americans) is almost near, meaning I will be free from school for quite a while. Should be getting into this soon, cannot wait.

New map sounds awesome. Bigger lanes and jungle, more emphasis on the laning phase, should also make the mobility focused heroes more useful.

Also a big graphics overhaul!

I remember wishing that something like this was done in WoW, way back. You know, not with an expansion pack.

I believe it will be a free update. eta is a couple months yet. Gonna have all the shiny new shader tech and such. Though they also say its optimized better and should run better on older systems than it currently does.

Anyone tried out Sona yet? Played a few games with a friend of mine running her and she seems pretty stupid in a lane with Mordekaiser. Basically your opponents can't do anything because Morde is a wall early game and sona heals+his shield means you're never going to hurt him, plus with his E and her Q they can harrass like a boss.

Also anyone have any opinions on Pantheon? Considering buying him once I finish getting a full runepage for him and was debating if he's good enough to be worth it. His ult seems kind of bad due to the long delay on it.

Pantheon has been bad for several months now. You're better off playing Mord/Xin if you want to play a melee harrasser.

Yeah I main Morde, was just thinking of picking up pantheon and messing around with him. I'm surprised he's that bad, I would think with the AD coefficients on his abilities being so high(160% on spear throw and 34% per hit on HSS with double damage to champs) he would still be effective.

Guess not

Pantheon is fun enough but you need to exclusively focus on AD to make him strong which makes him super squish. His damage also falls off heavily going into mid to late game and he becomes useless.

The metagame is heavily focused on tanky melee dps right now. It's quite common to see 3-4 really beefy heroes on teams and it's difficult to counter them without more of the same.

edit
Amusingly, Panth is one of the few heroes who can heavily take advantage of Revive. It essentially makes every battle a 6v5, as you can die, immediately revive, and then jump straight back into battle and go tearing after their squishies like a bat out of hell with the speed boost. It synergizes incredibly well with him. It's pretty good on heroes like Shen too but not quite as nice as on Panth.

Honestly, I think Panth is still very good. As Grav mentioned, the best Panth players run Revive/Ghost or Revive/Exhaust depending on who you're against (at least in ranked). If you intend to pick up Panth please make sure you level his spear first, then stun, then HSS strike. Back in the day he could melt any champion in a simple combo, but HSS is slightly garbage now with his spear doing the bulk of damage. He is very squishy (although always useful to the team for his stun), so expect to see quite a few deaths (unless you get on a roll). But with revive and the ability to completely get back into the fight with his ult (and people won't expect it the first time) he's a pretty solid hero.

Lane him with sion/taric/xin or someone else with a stun/immobilize and you have to be bad not to get a FB.

His ult has a steep learning curve however, and you will have a few epic fails. But if you can get a Shen to jump the map with you it's very fun.

Is Soraka any good for league play? I've been playing her a lot more now days and she's pretty banging when I have good team mates.

Soraka got nerfed and is currently viewed as mostly not that good anymore.

Sona is the new Soraka.

edit
Sorry, I should expand a bit maybe. Soraka is still very useful to a team but she is a lot easier to kill than Sona and doesn't bring lolauras to the table. So Sona is more useful than Soraka, but Soraka is not bad per se.
