LoL: G2 Jankos explains why he's afraid of eastern teams at Worlds 2019

G2 Esports jungler Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski joked about a nightmare scenario that keeps him up at night ahead of his matches at the League of Legends World Championship.

The biggest LoL event of the year, Worlds 2019, is closing in on its main event as teams are securing the final three spots through the Play-In.

Most qualified teams are getting ready for the event as their games start on October 12, however, Jankos suggested that he has been having some trouble due to a horrifying scenario. 

Riot GamesJankos plays as a jungler for G2 Esports.

The Polish player was streaming on October 7 when a viewer asked him how many hours he sleeps every night. This was then he revealed his terrifying story, as he leaned in close and began to speak, ASMR-style.

“I can’t sleep because every time I close my eyes I see the Asian teams before me and they are slaughtering me and they are always just invading me” he whispered, as he pretended to break down in tears.

With a distressed voice, he continued: “they kill my camps, and my laners are stuck behind their tower and there’s nothing we can do” all while pretending to tear up before exploding into a sudden wail.

Then he suddenly leaned back and said “ok well I sleep eight hours a day” before continuing his stream with a cheeky smile on his face.

This wasn’t the first time Jankos spoke about the Eastern teams ahead of Worlds 2019, on October 4 he shared his thoughts on their level of play during practice matches and did not seem particularly confident, leaving some fans worried.

G2’s first match is set to take place on October 13 against the Korean team Giffin, so fans will be able to see if the jungler was messing around, or if this year’s event will be tough for the European favorites.

TFT b-patch 11.4 notes: Olaf nerfs, Nasus & Nidalee buffs

A small update for Teamfight Tactics is here with TFT b-patch 11.4. Riot is finetuning some adjustments after their big changes, with the February 24 patch including nerfs to Olaf, as well as buffs to Nasus and Nidalee.

TFT patch 11.4 drastically shook up the game’s meta. Reroll comps were nerfed into the ground, leading to the rise of Slayers and Vanguard-Mystic Neeko.

However, the changes went a bit too far. With Olaf becoming the number one comp instantly, Riot are keen to draw back his power in a big way. On the other hand, Nasus and Nidalee were hit a bit too hard for the devs’ liking.

TFT b-patch 11.4 includes changes for all of these units, and more.

Olaf AD increased, but Runaan’s change is huge nerf

Olaf has quickly risen to the number one carry in TFT with the big nerfs to all his rivals in TFT patch 11.4. Paired with Runaan’s Hurricane, he could cleave through entire teams 1v9. Now, that interaction is changing.

“Hurricane has proved to be too synergistic with Olaf, making him too powerful with the item, but too weak without it. We’re removing the Hurricane interaction, but will be giving him some AD to compensate and open up other build paths,” TFT dev Rodger ‘Minionsrpeople2’ Caudill said in the amended patch notes.

The loss of the Runaan’s proc on his ultimate makes his damage output significantly weaker. While an increase in AD will help balance out the nerf, Olaf forcers will certainly feel the change.

Nidalee was hit the hardest in TFT patch 11.4, so Riot are giving her a bit of love.

Nasus & Nidalee get compensation buff after early nerfs

On the other side of the equation, after getting nuked in the last update, reroll carries Nasus and Nidalee are getting some assistance. Nasus’ mana is getting decreased so he can cast more readily, while Nidalee’s damage at two and three-star is also up.

The changes may not make either comp S-Tier in the meta, but it’s a handy buff. Talon is also getting a huge bugfix that keeps his mana bar full if a target dies midway through his ability animation.

Quicksilver and Runaan’s bugs have also been squashed in the b-patch. You can find the full TFT b-patch 11.4 notes below, courtesy of Riot.
