I finally got enough IP to buy my beloved Katarina today! I was completely hooked after my first game as Katarina which I played when she was free to play, and I've been saving my IP ever since! And to top it off me and my friend won a game right after that. (This is on my 2nd EU west account, where I go by the name "MrMid".)
Oh and also, since you now can spectate games I'm wondering if any new player (or old) might want to get a bit of "coaching"? I will spectate the game you play and give tips and recommendations as you play, this will be done through Skype or Teamspeak/Ventrilo. We could also play together, though that will leave me a bit of less time to "coach", but it might be more fun. ^^ Things I'll be talking about is how to position yourself, how to act during the lane phase, warding, item builds, controlling key objectives like dragon, tower, baron etc. Well it's all to much to fit in here, but I'll gladly help anyone who wants to learn a bit more about the game while playing!
As for my own experience I've been at around 1500+ rating as highest, and played a few games at around 1600-1800 rating. I've also played for a short while in a team which had some quite amazing players, which were 1600-2000 rated. And I have 1000 hours played in DotA 2, and probably like 200 hours in DotA 1, which is the game LoL is based on.
Needless to say I'm quite rusty as far as LoL goes right now, and I'm not a spectacular player. But I think I could be to some help at least!
