I have to point out that you guys ignored a significant event in the CJ Frost vs EG analysis. EG's Soraka stole red buff from her own Jarvin. This put him a level behind, slowed his jungle and is entirely the reason that he couldn't help Anivia defend the middle turret. You specifically commented on how Jarvin, "couldn't do anything." That he didn't get the red buff is the reason CJ Frost could push down the turret in 4 mins. Yes, CJ Frost's strategy was good and definitely gave them an advantage but the reason it was so successful is because Soraka screwed up.

You guys should have at least mentioned that in your wrap-up because you gave the impression that the clever strategy was unbeatable. If Jarvin had gotten red buff, I'm confident that Jarvin/Anivia could have successfully defended the early push.

Hey, when you dug into that one guy, I completely disagree. I never want to say anything negative, but I have to support this guy that you, as I believe, wrongly brought him down. You think he has a negative attitude. You misunderstand him; he has a cautious attitude. He doesn't want to lose. Playing with bad players does no good. In fact it does many bad things: brings you down to their level, lowers your rating (giving you a higher chance of playing with bad players, creating a cycle), makes the game less enjoyable (bad players have a knack for not cooperating/communicating), and can put you on tilt in combination of picking up bad habits from these bad players. The base of your argument seems to be that he is misjudging bronze players as bad players. You are correct that not all bronze players are garbage, but you must understand that he probably looked at those three players' match history while he was on lolking to see what league they were in. If this happens only occasionally, then I would agree with you all. But it seems that, according to him, that this happens frequently. If what you say is so true that the league system does nothing other than visuals, then shame on riot. I love your show and everything, but you guys have a huge influence on the league community. What you say might go unchecked. You were promoting, "suck it up, kid, stop using lolking to see if you should have faith in these guys and just go in blindly so you can have a positive attitude." I say that is insane. If there is someone on your team that consistently has more deaths than kills while playing non-supporting roles, you dodge. No if, and, or buts, else you are gambling. Once again, I love what you guys have going. I'm just sticking up for the little guy.

It's fair. There are a lot of assumptions but if you play ranked you're going to get various people of varying skill levels and match making does the best that math can do to account for those differences when forming both teams.

If one wants to control the people that they play with, one should form a team.

I can agree with that.

The "where does the s*** go?!" movie is Envy. I think you called it Greed.

As far as where Quinn goes, you guys weren't too far off with pterodactyl rider Quinn. She actually uses a magic shrinking spell and Valor swoops in to catch her. If you zoom the camera in all the way, you can see a tiny Quinn riding on Valor's back. It's true.

You called Quinn an "ADC that is replaceable by another one". At the same time, you don't even mention her strongest spell, an AOE blind for 1.5 seconds. This move is completely broken and rewarding good positioning and prediction. Quinns Blind can win every exchange or teamfight by disabling all the enemies.

Also, in my opinion, and yes i'm saying something pretty unbelievable right now, Quinn belongs to the Top Lane.
She can kite all those Bruisers and the blind will never miss if the enemy is hugging to you. Furthermore, her sightgiving move is perfect for disrupting surprise ganks.

As for her ultimate, i can agree that she basically deals no damage in the bird form.

I've been hoping that you'd bring up the issue of "Red Pot Top". Maybe it only is played on EUW, i don't know, but every AD Bruiser on Top Lane grabs a Red Pot, 4 Health Pots and a Ward and tries to win his lane with the suprise of a health boost in his inventory.
Many pros, like Dyrus or Voyboy, start off with those items, even on Elise.
What do you think about this?

Nice episode! I've known you for only a week and i like u a lot! :D
I want to say that i've played quinn in mid and in top, and she does the job. I play like a bruiser and its great.

Bye! :D

So excited. I was listening to all the old ones ;)

I am sorry Lowelo but I cannot disagree with you more on the subject of Quinn and Valor. Having played extensively with her in PBE and on release I can say she is a well balanced adc. You described the passive in a fairly off-hand manner, it is quite powerful and can be controlled by the use of her vault, as well as it is not randomized to begin with, targeting low hp minions and when in combat with another champion, them. This is not even considered the massive aoe reveal which costs NOTHING, a blind which deals a nice chunk of damage and an aoe ult that seriously hurts, and a helpful slow to go with the vault. I normally agree with your opinion guys but don;t count Quinn and valor out just yet.
