    Ask Me Anything (AMA) with TPS Zonda



    Greetings Summoners!


    The 2014 Spring Season of the Garena Premier League is on its third week and we know that many of our Pinoy summoners are avid fans of not just our very-own PH teams but also the various top League of Legends teams in the region. As such, the members of the world-renowned Taipei Snipers have given us the honor of their presence through a series of Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions.

    After TPS Awei's AMA session, it's now the Taipei Snipers' top player TPS Zonda's turn in the hot seat. He will be answering your questions posted on this thread from February 26 to March 2, 2014 (thread will be opened for questions on Feb 25 - 11:59 PM and will be closed on March 2 - 11:59 PM)

    You can ask him anything related to his team (TPS) as well as stuff related to what he does as a professional League of Legends player (i.e. strategy, training regimen, etc.) and he'll be most happy to respond to your questions.

    Remember our guidelines though:
    - Please stay on topic.

    - Please be patient. Due to the players? busy schedule, it may take a few hours before they can answer your questions.

    - Please use English when asking questions.
    - Please read the thread to make sure your question hasn't been answered yet before you post.

    Ask away!

    . Try to carry if possible. If your teammates troll then just give up this game.

    6. What are favorite skins?


    7. Favorite champions to play when you're in "Top" Role.

    1. Runes grant you early advantage.
    2. Normally my first item will be a offensive one
    3. When your champion can do nothing with a offensive item (eg. Mundo)
    4. Champions with mana are rather weaker as a top laner, and lack of skills to esacpe from gank. Tiamat looks good for


    wukong.
    5. Since the econimic from turrest is less, then try teamfight or wait for your teamate. Or just put your wards at


    proper position in order to prevent your enemy roam easily.

    1. Buy offensive items if you can kill the enemy, or get a defensive item to improve your sustainability.
    2. Renekton

    1. Yes, she plays but not as much as me.
    2. My chinese name pronounce like Zonda
    3. I'm good at all roles except AD.

    9. who's the hardest champion to counter for you?



    1. Find out the answers above.
    2. Not viable imo, bad stats at the beginning even the jungler could kill you.
    3. I'm kinda emotional and troll sometimes
    4. The manager from TPA asked to if i'd like to become a proplayer, and i joined then.
    5. He's good as a top laner, good at pushing the lane and not easy to be dived.
    6. Hug the tower! and put wards prevent enemy roaming.
    7. Find out the answers above.
    8. Every lane got it's own difficulties.
    9. In most cases, you'll have to fight against counter pick if you pick top before their top.

    14. Is it Effective using Solo Top Gragas? ( Tank Gragas )

    1. Depends, but it's necessary if you're playing a serious match.
    2. When the bot lane is countered badly.
    3. Survive and gain exps
    4. The dual lane.
    5. Tiamat or Haunting Guise
    6. Push the lane
    7. Renekton, high damage and good sustainability. Hard to be killed with his E dash.
    8. Get a counterpick
    9. Find our answers above =D
    10.Communicate more, find out the solution for next teamfight, however the pressure is rather more.
    11.?
    12.Gragas, Leesin, Elise
    13.Try next patch
    14.Yes

    . You taunt, tank all the damage. If you're not focus, kill their carries.

    . Play like a common AP, if you'd like to be tanky then start with Doran Shield.

    What is a Solo Top's purpose in a team?

    What is the best kind of solo-top champion (bruiser, tank-y, snowball-y type, other)

    Gurantee of the mid/late game, each kind is viable.
    However, it still depends on the team composition.

    my friend asked me what is the meaning of your suggested rank team name, the Jack of All Trades

  24. #24
    Which top champion do you like the most? Why? Which top champion is strong in this meta? Is Jayce, Mordekaiser, Kayle top still strong in this meta?
    I'm an average Renekton player. I prefer damage over tankiness. I always rush Black Cleaver as my first item then spirit visage then randuin's omen and other depends on condition. I can see that you build renekton by rushing tiamat. Which is better for renekton to rush, tiamat or brutalizer?
    Could you show me your mastery page for Renekton by taking screenshot?

    I'd some question about your teammate.
    Why Winds like to use 4:3 resolution for LOL? I can see that everyone in your team using 16:9 and only him using 4:3.
    Why your teammate like to train in KR server? Why not NA server?
    Do you still contact mistake?
    Do you fell annoying because of GodJJ? I can see that he is very active and very emotional.
    Who decided to move OhReal from Jungle to AD then to Mid? Why?
    Is lilballz your team coach?
