If anyone would be interested in forming a 5 man team for ranked, I'd be in.

So just got out of a game not too long ago testing out Phoenix Udyr. Prior to his recent change I was always 100% Tiger Udyr. Didn't much like Phoenix. After his latest change where the AoE procs on the first hit I have found I find it more enjoyable than before. I might have to practice around with him. Maybe try him top lane with my Rumble-esque build. Worth looking into. I really need to expand my champion pool a bit more. I'm slowly getting it to grow but not without effort.

I've only played Udyr twice, but don't you usually build him around two skills, and switch back and forth for maximum effect?

That way you get either Tiger or Phoenix for damage, Bear for the stun hit and Monkey speed when you switch...

Or were you just being rhetorical when you said "100% Tiger..."?

Udyr is pretty brutal against melee champions top lane. The few times I played against him he just constantly pushed the lane at me. Everytime I tried to engage it was just... stun... run away...

Who do you normally top with?

Whoa, around here that could mean so many things!

Hurricane, Udyr is unique in LoL in that he can't max rank all his abilities, so generally people tend to pump either Tiger or Phoenix and minimize the other while also putting points into Turtle for the defense/sustain and Bear for the speed boost (since he has zero other ways to close distance so the added speed boost kinda matters a lot). At least that's my understanding.

Sort of rhetorical I guess. What I meant is I tended to only put three points in Phoenix and never switched to it. It was just there. I would level Tiger and itemize toward making Tiger do as much damage as possible since Phoenix and Tiger require two different types of builds to be really effective. I would level Tiger > Turtle > Bear and when they were maxed Phoenix with my last three levels.

For maximum effect you switch between three skills usually; his damage skill you picked and his two utility skills. Bear for the quick stun, turtle for the shield, and your damage ability to... well... damage. Then switch back once the stun is off cooldown or your shield drops.

With enough CDR you can go Bear > Turtle > (Phoenix or Tiger) > Turtle > (Phoenix or Tiger) > Bear > Turtle. At least if I'm remember his rotations right. Tonight was the first time I played him in a loooong time.

Udyr is pretty brutal against melee champions top lane. The few times I played against him he just constantly pushed the lane at me. Everytime I tried to engage it was just... stun... run away...

I could imagine that. I've seen him played top in a couple of streams recently and he looked pretty darn hard to deal with. Sort of what made me want to try him out, (>_<). He'd be hard to gank as well unless you completely blindsided him. I really want to try it... probably do that tomorrow. Seems like a pretty safe top lane who has a good potential to snowball and a stun to help with ganks.

I usually top Rumble if I have my pick of champions. He's so cute! And fun. And he sets people on fire. Fire is awesome.

I was so happy yesterday to reach promotion, but immediately my next two games were troll filled. Seems to be the pattern for me in rank.

Good luck on your playing Sin, make sure to use bush to get Kha's passive.

I do, Kha going on sale is what brought me out of playing mid talon/kat/akali right now.  Mid was getting boring.  Kha is a beast mid game though with how teams been of late I pretty much get shafted when I jump in.

My 3's team finally got into our division, we went 5-0 and got placed in Silver 2. Now we get to see how well our winning streak holds up.

I'd love that too!

The new ranked structure has really inspired me to try and climb the ladders, but after a few attempts to just play solo que (and some bad luck with leavers and trolls) I realized I'd need some people I could trust backin' me up.

Yay, free Riot points for casting! o3o

Also, because of the job, I had to make a new account on NA since I'm EUW based myself. Feel free to PM me if you want to play some games with me on NA. =)

My attempts at top lane Udyr have been lackluster thus far... I need to work on my build. Still think it is worth learning if I can figure it out.

In other news I'd be willing to play normals with you guys when I'm not with my usual premade. Not much for ranked anymore. I only do it when the mood hits.

Ganking and ward control, which are key elements to being effective as a jungler, aren't so much.

I'd agree with this and add one more piece to the jungling puzzle - global awareness. A good jungler has to have a pretty good idea what's happening in every lane and be flexible enough to react to those situations to help tip the balance in their teammates' favor.

I can't count the number of times I've seen a lane where we're getting pushed hard or we've given up one or two kills and the jungler is on the other side of the map, happily grinding away on camp after camp.

I'm not going to agree with the majority, learning to be a good jungler is hard. You are expected to be everywhere at the same time and if someone get killed because they didn't have the support they get pissed at you over anyone else.

I've jungled with Rammus, Voli and Rengar but I'm still learning. It comes down to team synergy, at least from what I am experiencing first hand when I do ranked solo/duo
