On LuLu's Polymorph, I knew it was going to work exactly as 'Sheep Stick' from DOTA. I was in shock when I found out LoL didn't have a Poly. Much needed ability to counter a lot of heroes. I think she's going to see tournament play just for this ability alone. It's strong and very clutch.

Once more, great Podcast!
I'd like to again ask you some questions. I hope i don't bother you.

1. You said, Janna's Ultimate is devastating in teamfights. Do you only think about the knockback when saying that or also about the heal? I see many people using her Ultimate only for the knockback and killing the enemies with pure cc, while other players also channel the whole heal but risk the reason of getting nuked/cced, so you won't be able to do that.
2. I'm still testing various Junglers, so i'd like to ask you: Is Shen jungle viable? Same question for Wukong and Yorick. I got flamed because i wanted to try them in the jungle, and i'm not really sure if they are any use, i had big problems to gank with Shen without his Ultimate, Wukong doesn't have any form of CC or damage reduction/selfheal for jungling and Yorick just seemed horribly slow to me. What do you think?
Best Regards and thank you for taking your time answering my questions and creating this awesome Podcast!

@Cryout
1. One reason Janna's ultimate is so strong is because it's versatile. You can pop it for healing. You can pop it for disruption. You can pop it for both.

2. Shen is viable. Use his taunt as CC for early ganks. Your team will have to lay down the damage and secure the kill.

Yorick and Wukong aren't traditional junglers. Try starting with Yorick's Q and time it right after a melee hit for some very impressive damage. His early ganks are lackluster, however, because his W can't always secure kills. Yorick shines brightest in lane due to his impressive harass. Monkey is the same way - he has nothing to secure early ganks and is difficult to sustain in the jungle. His post 6 ganks are very strong, though, which is why a top lane Wukong starts roaming as soon as he gets his ultimate.
