Well, keep in mind that that guide is for Cho'Gath mid, a lane where Irealia and the like wouldn't really go. Then again, I think the only time I've seen Cho'Gath mid was during that 5v5 game where all of us were the giant thingy, so ya.

According to lolcounter (not always trustworthy), Fizz is strong against him, and Fizz is really shining in the meta at the moment midlane. I'd assume this is due to Fizz being able to easily dodge his skillshots and troll pole his scream, while also having execute damage on his passive poison (%missing health per second - shit's crazy) AND being able to reduce Cho's natural healing with the active component. The other thing is that I'm not sure Cho could shut down the crazyscaler assassins like Kassadin and Zed - he might not die to them, but he wouldn't necessarily put them far enough behind for them not to do terrible things to the people dealing damage on his team. And he has trouble peeling off high mobility champs, too. Other than that, yeah, the only other problem is you'd need someone else on your team to do bursting duty, most of the time, or at least high damage duty.

Ranked report!

This time in brief.

-One jerk player will spoil a match and make you lose, no matter how plat he is.
-A tank with no damage from teammates is worse than a damager with no tank.
-Sometimes you win the toplane jackpot and get a Jax who, in the previous game, built a tiamat on Corki. You will feel bad about learning Garen versus him.
-When PVP.net disconnects you from a promo series match, you get a free loss. Thanks, Riot. How nice. Also I like the "WHAAARRRAAARRAAAAAARRAAAAARRAAAAARGGHHH" sound effect on Garen's spin, and will miss it when they remove it. Also Garen's autoattack animation is atrocious.
-Alistar still works as a support versus a Leona. At least versus a kinda... slow Leona.

That about sums it up! Kind of a frustrating day so far, but you can't win 'em all.

I got a quadra kill with Jinx.

Step one: steal a kill with ult to get to the fight faster. Step two: murderhype divebuddies with Sejuani all the way from their first tower to their inhib.

Those are all the steps. Jinx is fun, but oh god the nerf bat will ruin her. All she has are OP numbers. =P

Quad's no big thing, I know, but this was my second game playing her. =P Jeez is she OP. Really good in a Janna lane, too - shielded rocket poke is brutal, and the tornadoes keep her from getting dived too hard.

Also nice on your end, Talix! I used to play Dominion a bit, but since I last did the meta got really stagnant IIRC - tons of Kassadin. Maybe you found the new OP, though! Never know!

Nah, from what I can tell Urgot has always been really powerful in Dominion.  And it can't be more stagnant than Summoner's Rift.  They're probably both just as adverse to change.

And ugh, I haven't even had to experience Jinx with a Janna.  That sounds terrifying.

...I should mention this to my ADC friend that I support   <.<

At the same time, though, as much as I hate to say it, she really does take a pretty high level of mastery of the core ADC skillsets, as well as a lot more planning than most. You have to be thinking significantly ahead, to harass with rockets while still zeroing in on CS and keeping up stacks of her gatling gun while possible, managing her rocket mana, figuring out when openings for Zap! are about to pop up, and getting a good feel for when you can dive and still live. Even just juggling between her different Q forms is a lot of extra headroom, and needs to be executed flawlessly if you're going to abuse her range to win trades. I got to lane 3 or 4 minutes late as Quinn(!) versus a Jinx (had to restart my computer), and we absolutely stomped her nonetheless. Mind you, she was terrible at farming, too, but still.

I decided to try out Lux and Xerath today. They are both very fun, but I feel so weird playing Lux since over Skype and TS it seems like she's speaking with a bass voice.

I'm well aware of that. I don't know why he's getting reworked, though. In my opinion he's fine as-is.

@Iron
Two reasons, apparently: one, he has pretty much just the one playstyle: long range bombardment on a medium/short cooldown, which gets boring. Two, they think he's secret OP - too powerful (especially in lane), but not currently one of the main viable meta picks because he's not a supermobile assassin. They're adding more skill into his kit but keeping the same style of play, so hopefully it won't be too different if you're getting attached to him. Still super long range (possibly longer range?) with charge-up times and all that.

Dear Princess Luna,

There is a special place in the fiery pits of hell for players who steal kills from snowballers. Normally this doesn't piss me off because the enemy has been temporarily taken out of action, but stealing kills from a champion who relies heavily on items to be a murder machine is a no-no. If it's clear that he can't get it, fine. Take it. Otherwise, fuck off. Let the snowballer take it.

Today's ranked report (though I may do more)

Silver 1! 3 games, 3 wins... mostly mediocre midlane performances with Lux (uggghhhhh Gragas is the worst champion, high mobility, high burst, tons of free tankiness, and infinite sustain), one pretty strong showing top with Nasus, and then superb teamfights and catches. Now the long death march to Gold begins.

More ranked report! Double posting for great justice!

Only two games today, though they were two wins and both actually quite fun games. First was Jinx; we did very little bottom lane but farm (I won the farm war!) and occasionally have some fights happen. Meanwhile, Ryze was getting fed as a motherfucker, which was nice. Basically, we had one teamfight that escalated into us taking all 3 bot towers and an inhib, along with several kills. Then we did that to mid. Then we won. Jinx is fun.

Next game, I noticed I was not only the only silver player, but that most of the other players (my team and enemy team) were fairly high gold AND that the enemy ADC was actually in plat, and had been gold ranked last season. Gratifying, but also pretty high pressure. Fortunately, the enemy team went with a Soraka/Twitch lane - pretty low aggression - while we had a Varus/Sona lane, so I was confident that our teamfight potential was a lot better than theirs. Made a level one or two play that netted us first blood and total lane dominance until a goon squad pushed down our tower around level 8 or so, which was nice, and my ults were generally quite good - including one went over baron wall to snag two enemies chasing our low health Katarina, saving her and allowing us to reinitiate and clean up (note: baron was also hitting me during this time; we had been baiting). I was very proud, and so was the team. Overall, pretty great experiences; the Varus was incidentally obscenely good at split pushing, applied pressure at all the right times while we were distracting them (and, in the Riven and Kat's cases, getting caught in dumb places while getting greedy =P). That's my ranked report for tonight! If I keep getting games with teammates like this, and if clamping doesn't get me (which I think it really ought not to, if I'm getting matched with plats and my winrate's at 55% and climbing)... well, I might actually hit gold before the season ends, if I'm reeeaaaally lucky.

EDIT: Also? I am SUPER STOKED for the changes to support gold income in season 4, and equally as stoked that they're going to look at Alistar again... poor moocow's really having a problem leading his baby tuckoos into becoming the heroes they are inside (oh my god I need to stop with the Ulysses references right now). I used to main the cow, I did, back before they gutted him so thoroughly. The jungle changes I care less about, though I'm sure the greater camp diversity and stronger rewards for farm-up junglers will make for interesting new strategies (less predictable routes, increased emphasis on invasion to keep that jungle Trynd from emerging at the thirty minute mark with three full items, stuff like that). Mostly just 'cos I still don't really see myself as much of a jungler. =P

Today I got into a Skype call with four other friends, and we later all decided to do a 2v3, myself being one of the two. It was Rengar and Hecarim (me) vs Vi, Zyra, and Jinx. We had one general rule; we didn't push the turrets hard, so that we could draw out the game as long as possible. My teammate and I had some communication issues due to my severe attention issues, which eventually fucked us later, but we actually did pretty well. I went 9/4, he went 22/6. I wasn't being as aggressive as I usually am because I wasn't entirely sure how to handle the situations I was getting into. It was a great learning experience, because Rengard and I eventually got our shit together and pulled off some brilliant ambushes. In the end, however, Jinx sneaked past me as I was keeping minions out of our base, and she killed our base. I wasn't too bothered by it, I was actually surprised rather than annoyed.

@Iron
Nice, very nice. Jinx' backdoors are scary good, if she can actually get TO the back door (which is hard for her since she's got very little mobility outside of murdering stuff and people).

More ranked report! I have discovered why playing ranked on weekends is a bad idea. My god... it's full of morons.
