My game with Riot's own Phreak

Posted by GlenTennis (3145 posts) -

After a long night of losing ranked 5s with my friends, something magical happened. We hit the loading screened and realized we were up against none other than Phreak himself, along with a few other Rioters. It was one of the most fun games I've ever had. I went mid against him as Morde (I won on kills, he had double my CS). Anyways, they were all super nice, and we won.

Oh i hope you killed him a lot. I hope you survived any tower dives he did and made him die instead as well. Since he loves to do that so much in the spotlights.

What the fuck is CS.
 
Also this is cool.

@LordXavierBritish: He had hella more creeps than me

@Shirogane: He did in fact dive me, we got first blood but he typed "Worth It" so it was totally worth it.

@GlenTennis: Haha, oh wow dude - that's awesome. Congratulations on winning there my friend, he and his team must be fantastic players! Was it a tough match?

Also, grats for winning against Phreak's team with Anivia, I think she's the toughest champion to play by far. Playing her well is no easy feat.

God, I love that Anivia skin. Been tempted to give her a shot just to buy the skin. Grats on the win!

What, no Trinity Force on Phreak? Obviously a fake.

Not good enough Ben. Not good enough. Also, i'm pretty sure scepters don't stack anymore.

He said he was playing as Morde so he could figure out exactly how to nerf him, right?

@Mechwing: The Unique Passive that increases mana doesn't stack, but the regular passive that turns 3% of your mana into AP does. And since I usually end up with somehwere around 4.5k mana, that's another 180 AP per staff.

theres better items to get thou!

Ouch, Phreak's Morde build was pretty bad; far too many tanky items, not enough AP.

This is the highest-yield AP build in the game. If I would have gotten my 3rd archangels I would have had 1100 AP, coupled with my magic penn runes and boots I would have had around 20+20%, which is enough to deal with anyone who isn't a tank. I've been playing Anivia since this game was in a closed beta, and this is the build to use (unless they are super tanky, I'd get a void staff).

@GlenTennis: Did any of you guys fanboy out and ask them questions about Riot/what might be in the pipeline or did you just keep it chill and concentrate on the game?

That's awesome, I'm completely jealous.  Also, further proof that Talon isn't that great.

I only play with a full group of friends.
