Re: League of Legends

There are two things you might want to avoid if you have a high ping: squishy champions and skill shots. Skill shots are abilities that you have to aim manually (rather than click a target), and they're a lot harder to hit with a high ping. Things like Kassadin's voidvomit are alright, they're in a ...

Re: Meta discussion

Normally, I would probably advise against a naive miller in a beginner/vanilla set-up, but with the watcher and tracker roles it seems fair (since the miller is only a disadvantage when it comes to a cop, and not to the other investigative roles).

Re: League of Legends

Can I play League of Legends, or will my ping be prohibitive, do people think? I suspect I'll probably get a ping of something around 400-500ms to EU servers, maybe 300-400ms for US servers. It will affect your gameplay. If it's stable at 300ms it might be doable, but even the slightest lagspike up...

You have seemed to have moved away from Krong as a lynch target, but the only reason Krong/Misnomer would have vote controlled TLC would be to save Krong, which would certainly mean he is more likely to be scum than Misnomer (or at least that is the way I see it).
