Ask @theDiamondprox:

Hey Diamond, a huge fan here. What do you think about Rek Sai atm and why do you think she disappeared of the competitive play?

Daniel Martins
It was mostly tryouts. At the end I came to the conclusion that cinderhulk->tank is always better, unless ur team is totally dumb and they cant do shit on their own so rek'sai needs to damage for them(which happens quite often in soloq, but almost never in teamplay). Warrior isn't so bad if enemy team is full of squishy targest who wants to fight you melee(like yasuo), but you need to watch closely if ur team needs that damage at all, or just a tank to peel for them.
She isn't godtier, like she was before, but definately a tier-1 along with gragas/olaf/eve/nida. Tho godtier only consists elise due to her insanely OP cocoon and ability to build most broken items(Zeke's and Banner).

what do you think about amumu,and why hasnt mumy come through on ranked play?

he is bad in scirmishes and thats soloq is all about right now for a jungler(if you wanna win, ofc). in teamplay he would fit some all-in comps, but they are not popular atm, so he is garbage there aswell.
though I really like that champ and hope he gets a bit(to not make him op) of love in near future.

Hi! Can you describe to me how you prepare for relegation matches ? Do you afraid about GMB?

Tomek Zso
Our practice is going good, dispite my worries in the begining. Yet we shrekt all gauntlet teams in teampractice bo5's, except OG(couldn't finish scrims with them due to electricity problems), so if we continue growing I see us having little problems with relegations.
I really like playing with Kris again, both as a player and as a person.

Who do you think will be strong in patch 5.16? do you have any ideas planned for it?

joe royales
I don't look closely to this patch as we are playing relegations on 5.15 for some reason, but currently I know that skarner is op in jungle and darius is a strong toplaner. Also I'd suggest to try new items for tanky-dps champions, they seems cool.
Full ap/ad comps struggle even more with new patch (thornmail with stacked armor destroys ppl, and all the magic-resist items are stronger). But in balanced comps ad damage became much better against tanks for champs that dont have crit (kalista and every top/midlaner, except yasuo) in comparison to ap dmg, because of omen/fh change along with all the mr items buffs.
New aegis->locket is even stronger and easier to build.

Hey diamond I love your jungle style and followed you since beginning season 3. I'm having some struggles lately with soloq and it seemed that i dropped 2 divisions in 2 days. My main lanen is jungle and I play alot Nidalee but even though I have a good kda I seem to still lose, what can I do?

Victor ?
If u already have a good kda, try to die even less, especially when it matters the most(death at 50th minute will cost u the game, while death at 1st minute will only give a slight advantage to ur opponents).
Also if u have good stats - you are the one on ur team having advatage and it becomes ur resposibility to snowball it further. You can make it by spotting the least protected turrets of enemies and killing them 1 by 1.
Another thing u can improve is that when u see ur teammates argue about something - tell them politely to stfu, otherwise they might tilt or afk at some point, which will lower ur chances of winning.

1.What do you think about Vi?Can you give me some runes for her? 2.Runes for Elise and Gragas? 3.Elise will be good everytime ?

Călin Constantin
1. Vi is an all-in jungler and it doesnt fit the current meta with all the saves and disengage tools being used nowadays. as/ad/arm/cdr.
2. ap/as/hp/cdr+mr for elise, arm/as/hp/cdr+mr for graga
3. her power is in scirmishes and CC. if u avoid this all-game long, she is becoming bad in mid-late game against tanks with hard CC and burst midlaners.

when u stream ?

Riki Muñoz
I'm leaving to Germany tomorrow morning, so gonna spend some time with my gf b4 that. And I dont see myself streaming at GH (I usually play 2-3 games before teampractice and same after, so not worth streaming unless I wake up super-early, but then I'll be tired to the end of the day and will fail my team in last games of scrims).
I have plenty of time after relegations, so gonna stream much more often.

Hi Diamond! I've been a big fan ever since I originally saw IEM Kiev and Hanover back in Season 2. My question is, what was your motivation back in Season 2-3 compared to now and how did you adapt to all of the changes with the team through out the years?

Cody Box
The only motivation I had back then was to crush fags ingame and to actually make my hobby (I'm playing games from 6 yo, hardcore from ~12) a real thing.
Now its different: I want to win the tournament that I consider a real high-skill competition (Its obv WC, but sometimes its also some mid-season tournaments(like 2015 MSI) or IEMWC's(this year it wasnt that high-skilled)). All of that, though, is to prove myself that my mind is capable in such things, so thats my motivation right now. Then after I can focus on my other dreams with a peace of mind.
My adaptaion to all the changes within the team was pretty bad. Every time someone left and joined - something changed: something improved, but something dissapeared. And I always understood this missing thing too late to try to improve it. It sometimes was the lack of teamplay, sometimes lack of teamcomps understanding, sometimes the ingame attitude, etc. . I realised it recently, so maybe I'll become better at it xD
