Now one of my most memorable video game experiences was playing the original NES at my friendโ€™s house as a kid and working every night to beat Super Mario Bros. It was by far the most popular and talked about game at that time and the big challenge then was to beat that dragon.

I always built Magic Resist because I was usually mid with Teemo. I was hard on banks top too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also play an AP support Soraka so my heals and skills do more than your typical support. It tricks the enemy team to blowin their ults and CDs thinking they are going to get a kill. Then they see their target full health and start focusing me. ๐Ÿ˜€
