Blood for Noxus!

This is a thread for Noxian Summoners to talk Faction Match strategy.

If you're asking "Wait, what's a 'Faction Match'?", then here's the thread: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=3215351

And here is the main website! : http://leaguefactions.net/


First off, I strongly encourage Noxians to friend one another. I suggest making a Buddy Folder for other Noxian Summoners, so you can easily find people for games.
List of Summoners by faction: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...nc&usp=sharing
(check the tabs at the bottom for by-faction listings)

Noxus chat: Join chat room "Noxus"
("Factions" is the general factions chat)

So here's our lineup:
Annie,
Cassiopeia,
Darius,
Draven,
Katarina,
LeBlanc,
Sion,
Swain,
Talon,
Urgot,
Vladimir


Our opposition:
IONIA: Ahri, Akali, Irelia, Karma, Kennen, Lee Sin, Master Yi, Shen, Soraka, Udyr, Varus, Wukong, Zed
DEMACIA: Fiora, Galio, Garen, Jarvan IV, Lux, Poppy, Quinn & Valor, Shyvana, Sona, Vayne, Xin Zhao
PILTOVER: Blitzcrank, Caitlyn, Corki, Ezreal, Heimerdinger, Jayce, Orianna, Vi, Ziggs


I suggest that, when you see some other Noxians on, you hit Normal queue as 5 and practice various champs and team comps. Let's see what we can figure out. Our roster is a lot more constrained than the usual 100+ champion list, but (as someone on the GitP thread noted) the other factions also have challenges. The goal is to find ways to leverage our strengths and shore up our weaknesses.

(and thank you to Cupcake Trap for the format of this post, as well as setting all this up.)

First things first, after the Demacia Vs. Noxus game (which I spectated), I think we need to consider the idea that Kat vs. Lux is not a good lane for us. Maybe that was just a single game, but that still seems like a poor match up to me. I'd think about subbing LeBlanc in there, then putting Kat down with Urgot, with him supporting her, or both trying to make it a kill lane. Both can badly out poke Xin and Jarvan, if they all play equally. Or at least it seems so to me.

Eager to hear what anyone else has to say.

OK. I was the Kat that was against Lux.
Kat actually counters lux, and as Kat, I usually love going against Lux.
It was just this time, my internet was being a butt. I'm sorry, Noxus.
One tear shed.

The problem with LeBlanc v Lux is that LB has absolutely no pushing power. Something that Lux has in spades. Lux shield also reduces LB burst by a lot. We have a few other mids we can run, so hopefully we can find one that's a better match-up. I haven't run them all vs Lux yet.

Well, I understand internet issues all too well, improv. Sorry to hear that. Better luck next time!

Fair enough. I don't want us to limit ourselves to traditional mids, however. We almost certainly want a heavy damage dealer, so the way I see it that leaves us with a few options, as you say:

LeBlanc
Annie
Cassiopeia
Draven
Talon
Swain
Kat
Vlad.

Any thoughts?

It really seems like we have the most mid-lane diversity between the factions currently. How we can put that into play, I'm not terribly sure. I'd figure Talon will always do his thing in Mid and do some cutting.

I have just haven't had a Talon in a game yet.

If you check out this thread it should have a list of all the proposed factions. Currently only the 4 factions listed are available to keep games from being too hard to start.
