I don't really understand the fine fully, considering NiP sent him on that path with the agreement they had in the first place. How exactly was he going to find a replacement player, unless he only talked to free agents?
Trolled? I'm saying it's incredibly legit. That game was so retarded, we had a rager who picked Nidalee after Ryze locked Mid, and then our last pick was Thresh. We had no ADC...and the other team had two supports and no ADC...rofl
I don't really know if the W change really made him viable, or it at least reminded people the pick is actually pretty decent.
I don't really fully understand the Pantheon jungle. His scaling is still terrible. You basically rely on good early-mid game ults to secure kills and objectives and snow ball the game. If you don't, like what happened with Aranea yesterday, twice, your team will naturally fall behind because Pantheon is garbage when not fed.
Somewhere, OddOne is crying over the Pantheon picks. He must be the most vocal pro player regarding Pantheon's situation, lol.
I don't see much of a difference between him and many other early-game picks in the Jungle. His passive is great for farming, it helps you clear without it even really being sustain, it's also good for counterjungling, and it's OP for dives. Plus he has that pseudo-execute/crit on his E for finishing targets off. Plus, a "global" ultimate from the fog of war...lolz
Not saying it's a top-tier pick in competitive, but I felt incredibly strong. I had my red and blue stolen at different points in the game, and I was never really behind. You just feel strong with that single target stun and passive on dives. What other strong junglers offer that kind of hard-CC that early in the game? No one I can think of off the top of my head.
Yeah not many offer the same hard cc pre-6, but a notable example is Elise with cocoon lvl 3. Even though it's a skill shot compared to Pantheon's no brainer click-and-hit.
To be fair looks like you got pretty fed that game xD Everything feels OP once it gets rolling really. You saw in LCS yesterday that while an interesting pick, if Pantheon doesn't get fed he's less useful than other top picks come mid-late game. Aranea basically picked Pantheon both games probably because all his junglers got banned out. He did fairly well early game in both cases, burning flashes and getting kills early with his ult, but since he build damage in both games Pantheon became totally useless mid and late game.

Haha same. Mates and I like to cheese (a little too often for my taste...) bot late, and we often go stuff like Riven/Pantheon, Riven/Lee, Lee/Pantheon etc. He's pretty hilarious. I used to play him a lot in season 1 and 2 actually. He was one of my mains back then XDDD

Honestly Diamond's pick there didn't work at all =/ Such a passive jungler doesn't fit for Diamond, don't know what they were thinking. In theory the pick works like when e.g. Edward engaged in bot lane with ult and Diamond ulted Edward to chain the cc, but that's it. Also Wriggles just sucks ass, especially on slow clear champs like Shen wtf...
I'm disappoint. Gambit too troll, next week 2-0 pls.
