Just played a match against Kassadin as Veigar. He wasn't really harrassing that much, he was focusing on his farm. After he got 100 minions, he said "100 farm". I wasn't really focusing on farming that much, I mean, yeah I farmed a bit here and there, but if I got too close to him, I'd get harassed.

We ended up surrendering because my teammates fed him. -___-

Generally, when someone plays a game you can't assume to get a stockpile of kills and get your gold income that way, however farming someone everyone can expect unless support

Think of it this way. 1 minion is worth what... 15-20 gold? So 20 minions = 1 kill.

Teleport Revive Karthus is a classic example of how farm > kda score, within reason. Doesn't matter if karthus went 0/3 if he's well farmed and becoming a quasi-hypercarry AP.

If you think farm doesn't win games, i'd suggest not playing veigar anymore. Don't try nasus either.


Farm = guaranteed gold (+ap if veigar), kills are hit or miss, you might get 15, you might get 1 or 2

~20 (give or take) minions is equal to 1 champ kill. 100 minions is equal 5 champion kills. yea. farming in the begining is pretty important.

Not that farming isn't important, but it is kind of overemphasized. I see too many people who are like "They have higher cs, we lose"

For 95% of the matches, gameplay is what decides the outcome. People watch 2200+ elo streamers way too much.


However, if you're Veigar, it really IS important.
