Guys please. For the love of god. I don't know who you are, or why you failed basic arithmetic, but smite doesn't do fuck all past the 20 minute mark in League of Legends. I am far more likely to use it for the slow or dueling potential than for an objective late game.
Do you know how many skills in the game either outdamage or take precedent over smite? The answer is an absolute fuckton. All AoE will beat out smite. Jhin R. Lux R. Jinx R.
And guess what? You can't frame perfect a smite. No one stops dps at exactly 900 health for the jungler to nicely smite it. Abilities are everywhere.
So next time you force a baron, make sure the enemy team isn't around. And if they are, please understand that it is truly a 50/50 shot. Even if the enemy is just a Morgana W, you have to realize that it's impossible to time smite correctly. And god help you if the enemy team has a Nunu or other such champion.
Yes this is a rant. Yes, I missed smite. Yes, I got flamed. No, I'm not good. Later nerds.
Edit: Holy shit this blew up. Lmao hey nerds, smite steals as well as ability steals have happened in pro play in every season since League started. If you are that dumb that you can't realize I'm right, no wonder you're calling me silver, that must be as high as you can see from iron.
Hope you celebrate with your family and friends :)
Ok, so here's the clip of Dom and Caedrel for original context:
Notice Yeon's build and how little damage he does.
Now watch Berserker: https://youtu.be/gTqvFaMBqiU
This is a good example of LS' comment about Berserker's "special talent" of only having to pilot a champion 2-3 times before being able to play it at an extremely high level. I don't get the impression that Zeri does no damage when I watch Berserker play her.
I don't think poorly of either Dom or Caedrel, but recently, they have both heavily underrated/overlooked C9, probably because they still buy into the notion that LS is just a streamer turned coach and won't amount to anything special.
I get that they only want to watch clips of "western players" to cater to their audience. But honestly, concluding that Zeri does no damage because you watch some ADC who can't even break into TL's first team, instead of watching C9's new ADC who is a generational ADC prodigy from T1 Challenger...it's just a very poor take IMHO.
Not sure where they should go, but theres been enough shenanigans to lose the right to say theyre from NOVA.
Y'all just wanna finish the game asap because you think it will break your game addiction
Unpopular opinion here, but I see Alina as someone who desperately wants validation through attention. As a Muslim WOC, I was not personally offended by her 134th wife comment. To me it came across as joke that didn’t land well—not something said to deeply harm Muslims. I don’t use the N-word nor would I, but I find it believable the ok use of the word amongst POC in media and in lyrics is acceptable, but not when used by a white person could be confusing to someone from Russia. The girl apologized. I haven’t seen any evidence to suggest she is actually prejudice or wishes harm towards minorities.
