Best skin ever!

I bought Thor - Volibear skin this weekend, not as cool as battlecast....
/wish for battlecast voli!

Friend has been playing this guy with my Voli, nasty combo. We are getting our timing on a toss into the implosion + slow and double bite = free gold ganks

I got cho with IP and have been playing him just to justify getting this skin.

New kid here, been enjoying League for a while now. 

Gotta say my faves are Sona and Brolaf right now.  Just got back into it again recently, and like how Zyra looks, definitely wanna try her out.

If this is your first time playing him, its good. My friend has been playing Cho for a long time and recently they changed his timing and part of the difficulty for him was relearning his timing since they made it half a second instead of a minute for his spell delay.

I joke with him now since he was premature on his cast for a few games until he got the hang of it.

Not a fan of Nunu.  Just can't get the hang of him. 

Been into ARAMs lately, and gotten him several times.  I constantly get Nunu and Galio, and I suck with both of them.

I find it to be one of those looks-better-in-splash skins. When I saw people using it in game it was less than impressive. :|

@BentNikki: Nunu works best when he's supporting via speed manipulation. Your job with Nunu in ARAM is to soak up damage (and heal it back by consuming minions), slow the enemy carry as often as possible and speed your own up with boil. With a little CDR and some good mana regen you should be able to have one or two enemies almost permanently slowed and one or two of your allies almost permanently hastened. It makes a big difference in teamfights, chasing or retreating. Nunu's one of the best when it comes to mobility, both reducing the enemy's and boosting your team's. His damage is lackluster unless you stack AP pretty heavily, though, so you either have to rely on your team to do the damage while you go mostly tanky with some AP/CDR, or you can try going burst damage with heavy AP/CDR and just be a total dick with your perma-haste snow nuking power. ;p

Ah, I suppose that makes sense.  I just constantly felt like I couldn't get the hang of him.  Now I've got a little insight.  Perhaps I should try not to buy as many champs as I can - can really screw you over in ARAM champ selection.

Yeah, there are times I regret having gotten one of the champion bundles while playing ARAM. I really don't want to own Evelynn. x.x

Her damage is too low, in my opinion. They tried to compensate because she can stealth. *Shrug* She's fun, but not really viable.

She is annoying as hell because since most know she is crap they just wait around to last hit everything....

I haven't had that problem at all.  Since they changed her, she has become a much better assassin.

Oh she's certainly better than she was, but her burst is too low for an assassin.

Twitch also has the advantage of range. 

The only problem I have with Evelynn is her stealth mechanic.  I don't like the fact that champions can see her from so far away.  Other than that, I've racked up plenty of kills with her.

Twitch also has a better a way better burst than her.  As I said most Eve's are kill stealers, I've not come across and honest one.

The problem is that Evelynn is her stealth mechanic. Without that she's a mediocre tanky dps option with a bunch of steroids, meaning any other tanky dps champion is a better option because her new stealth is shit.

She's got pretty good damage output (after being significantly fed/farmed; her early game is absolute crap), but almost nothing in the way of CC to protect herself or halt a runner, no gap-closer and negligible burst potential. Once she actually latches onto someone she can rip into them pretty hard and her movespeed bonuses are hilarious (I was able to chase a Highlander-buffed Yi through his allied Heimerdinger's frost turrets and was still running FASTER than Yi), but she's altogether lackluster without the ability to actually sneak up on someone to get those first speed-boosting hits in.

They need to make the radius of detection on her stealth smaller or add a delay to how long you can be near a champion before they detect you or SOMETHING. The current version of her stealth is almost useless; it's basically just a bush you carry around with you. Sure, it can enable some ganks the enemy team might have otherwise seen coming, but you're in the fog of war for 95% of that time anyway, so being invisible is redundant up until the point where you actually BENEFIT from it, which is when they can see you. -.-

The Eve rework is a mess.
