"Item suggestions: Black Cleaver"Posted in: OldManEyebrows
As much as I understand armor shred is a counter to his armor aura, I'm not sure about the black cleaver item as a counter - buying the item would imply you have someone like Talon or Pantheon on your team, and if there's one thing Taric does good against - he's good against physical damage focused items.

6.5% was Ryze's original values in mid~late Season 2. because Riot nerfed it to 6% and then to 5.5%, so they basically slapped themselves and changed it backPosted in: News

This is a difficult question, so I'll answer it in a simple way:Posted in: Summoner's Rift
If you are Asian, you take the tower
if you are from other regions you take the dragon.
Anyways, jokes aside, from a gold's perspective, taking a tower gives everyone on your team 150g, or a total of 750g for the team, taking the dragon gives everyone on your team 190g plus another 25g for the person that got it, and maybe another 10 gold for the sake of smiting it, that's 985g.
However, why do Asian teams prefer taking towers? a major thing about towers is the map control they offer, if you take the mid tower, you can start invading the enemy jungle and steal their monsters and buffs, making life difficult for the enemy jungler. if you take the bot tower you can push their bot lane back so your AD carry can, in turn, go mid and push the mid turret, and slowly snowball the game, or be in a more advantageous position for the next dragon. Plus, remember the purpose of the game is to push down the enemy nexus and only towers and inhibitors stand in your way, killing dragon isn't actually necessary to win the game, but killing towers is.
Many Asian teams prefer a fast push strategy(which never seems to be exercised by any other region except team Fnatic) and pushing a tower suits that strategy, and other regions prefer taking the dragon, and if there's one thing recent LoL tournaments tell us, it's about how Asians proceed to win (Added at the request of Waaargh).
One thing though, if you do decide to go for the tower, don't just go back to your lane to farm, go to another lane and help them push their tower down, visit the enemy jungle often to clear out their jungle monsters, or coordinate with your team and start ganking other lanes. Either way, don't just sit there.
TL:DR: Take tower, but again, why not both? Push the tower down and then go for the dragon!

I support Stonewall on this post, for me, I only play normal draft, and it has problems all over the place, although not the exact set of the problems stated by Stonewall. I think my normal ELO is about 1200~1400 as I've seen a few people with gold borders but they were rare.Posted in: Stonewall
Anyways, at this ELO, the problems are not really long queue times, but generally people dodging about on average 4~5 games in a row, and when we actually got into a game, instalocks still happen. I once had to dodge queue three in a row because one time we almost had an AD Ahri and the other time people would instalock roles even though they'd have already been called AND picked. You'd expect less trolls to exist in normal draft than normal blind, to be honest, not really.
