I'm not sure where you stand, but I'm sick... SICK of low skill, regulus players jumping in a game, pulling the old "instantly pick reg and hit ready". As a joke, sometimes there will be 3 regs already, but some jackass will still do this. Politely asking for a tougher DG always, always results in "what's wrong with reg? I'm pretty good with him.. (on high gold, high towers, and the opposition is AFK)".
I'm going to start putting "No REG" in the title of my games, with the idea being that if your other teammates agree, you can pick regulus AFTER asking them and getting full agreement. Or if your a known "I rock with regulus" player.
REGULUS CAN BE GREAT. Pre-empting the: What's wrong with regulus?! posts. Yes, he can be great. No, I haven't seen the 5 people that are great with him in a game for ages.
Maybe we can get this going around, which would help out the newer, unsure players. Letting newer players hide from combat by picking and playing a weak regulus is only making them lose more, and they're not learning how the game works. I would encourage them to pick a tough DG with a simple, easy build, so they can make headway into the game. Learning HP vs Armor, speed vs traps, stuns, etc. What items are good, which are excessive.
