Ganging Up On A League Of Legends Pro Is Never A Good Idea  

Ganging Up On A League Of Legends Pro Is Never A Good Idea  

Oh man. I bet these two League of Legends players thought they were being so clever, teaming up at the very beginning of the match to jump into top lane and surprise their opponent who was all alone up there.

The would-be ambushers should have checked the in-game handle of their target more carefully, because the man they were trying to execute an aggressive gank on was Piglet, a star player for the North American pro League team Team Liquid. As this clip (via Reddit) from one of Piglet’s recent streams shows, he wasn’t about to forgive them for their mistake:

Just look at his face at the end! Priceless.

  • Dota 2 may have the highest skill floor, but it’s LoL that has the highest skill ceiling.

    Yeah, I said it. Come at me, bro.

    • So Dota 2 players have a place to stand, where as LoL players Keep thinking LoL takes skill but they can never find it or reach it.

  • Two important things that resulted in the failure of the gank:
    1. You are ganking a nidalee without hard cc (she is super mobile and will be hard to catch otherwise).
    2. Lee sin ganked nidalee in a huge minion wave and lost half of his health to minions.
    I have no idea what those two players thought would’ve happened at Challenger/Master level play lol. Kinda stupid but hey, gj on piglet for keeping his cool and playing the situation right.

    • 1. You are ganking a nidalee without hard cc

      I quite literally have no idea what any of that means.


      • Allow me to explain:

        Basically, there’s three grabbers, three taggers, five twig runners, and a player at Whackbat. Center tagger lights a pine cone and chucks it over the basket and the whack-batter tries to hit the cedar stick off the cross rock. Then the twig runners dash back and forth until the pine cone burns out and the umpire calls hotbox. Finally, you count up however many score-downs it adds up to and divide that by nine.

        • Is it wrong to say that I believed that, even though I have a general understanding of MOBAs?

      • Ganking – ganging up on unexpectedly
        Hard CC – Crowd Control that removes the players ability to control their champion (stun or fear) things like slows, snares and silences don’t achieve the same result.
        Nidalee – A cat lady with high move speed, a gap closing leap, a heal and long ranged attacks.
        Basically their chances of success were low regardless of who was playing her
