In the meantime, I think that means this is an ultra-hip spot to talk to a Rioter. Before the craze of the "Dev Tracker" feature kicks in...!
Awh yeah, we're hipsters.

What advice do you have to give to a 1500 elo player that is still gaining 18-20 elo per win/loss on getting to plat?

I work right beside Jatt. He's another really great player who is pretty unassuming when you talk to him. When he does speak up, everyone stops and listens, though. Well. That's my impression, anyways; I like him a lot.

Do you know why all the red posts are missing from devtracker and the red navigation stuff is broken? :<

Are you soon going to replace phreak and start commentating at large esports events?

From what I've been told, this type of role is fairly unique to Riot.
Sooooo... Why don't you start playing Tryndamere and analyze exactly how terrible he is right now?

That would be much appreciated. Nerfed several patches in a row then left in the gutter. Also note that every champ that is released that is CC heavy also nerfs Tryndamere in a way.

OT: Today OP was a pretty cool guy.

It's incredible. There are times when I feel like it splits a couple of styles, though. At times I feel like it's an adult fiction with an incredibly deep character- and then at others I feel like he's a kid who's just terrible at managing money- more akin to Harry Potter than Gandalf. But I can't wait to read the next one, so I guess that says something.

And if you haven't read "The Lies of Locke Lamora" by Scott Lynch, you're missing out...

I play tons of heroes- but enjoy playing solo Soraka in ranked. With that said, if the solos are called ahead of my pick, I'll fill in wherever the team needs me to. To varying success. But hey, I try to be a team player...

Both are great reads, I have read both, the name of the wind is one of my favorite series for sure, although I just finished the Malazan Series of the Fallen and it's incredible. I have never read a series that is so deep and has so many memorable lines. It's spectacularly written.
