Im not very good either, but I suppose you just have to find your niche in these types of game and essentially stay working that angle until you improve. lol

Im getting back into it again. There is a bit of a learning curve becasue its click to move and its realy just farming for the first 15 minutes which most people dont really undrstand. More often then not new players start to hate the game quick cuz they try to go for the kills too early and get lured into an ambush or tower fire.

I added you in game, lets play and I can figure out what you're doing wrong/right. I used to play really competitively in pre-season one doing tournaments and whatnot, but had to stop due to exams for engineering. I still play quite a bit, just dont do serious ranked games.

Most of the time I see people chasing too far, targeting tanks, and not grouping up or pushing towers after team fights. Also, keep practicing last hitting.

Also, buy wards, they will save you more often than not.

veigar is fun to play. do you smart cast at all? veigar pulls off combo's much better if you know how to smart cast

I smart cast when I remembed to if that makes sense. lol, I find myself still trying to reel in his range at times so, I forget to smart cast if you will.

you can change it so when you hit the button it will cast wherever your mouse pointer is. It saves you from holding down shift, and its still a bit quicker.

Veigar is fun in pickup games, hes not a very competitive champion though due to his lack of defensive abilities and no real escape mechanism. He is very easily countered by champions that can jump into melee, such as pantheon, warwick, yi, trynd... the list is long and painful. In pugs, however, your opponents are usually not very good team players, which allows veigar to take advantage of his MASSIVE single target damage nukes.

The "best" champions right now are the tanky AD style champions. Ones that can take a ton of punishment and still deal a decent amount of damage. It is not that they are actually better than other champions, its just that it is easier to do well with those style champions because of their survivability, whereas veigar relies on you timing all of your spells perfectly to guarantee a kill, and if you miss or fail to kill that tanky dps champ, well then you are fucked.

I could see some of your points. Aside from his stun, he doesn't have many escapes. Running flash is a must, and personally unless I'm very fed early, I'll get boots of mobility to be able to run away, and also to chase people with his stun. His nuke is pretty nice for teamfights, but once you nuke someone you can't really do anything else, and to survive after that you need to get expensive items like zhonya's/frozen heart. However, two crucial advantages veigar has over other AP characters is he doesn't tail off in the end game. His passive allows him to keep getting stronger and stronger and thus his ability to take down those tanky AD champs gets stronger as the game goes on. The other advantage is since his ult feeds off the AP of the enemy, he becomes much stronger than the AP mid he's lanning against as the lanning phase gets longer.

I wouldn't compare veigar to AD style champs, because that's like comparing apples to oranges. AD champs play a different role than veigar does. Mid characters are typically AP carry's where veigar belongs, so it would make more sense to compare to other AP carrys.

I feel as though he suffers from carry syndrome, where he can be countered so easily just by getting jumped on by the multitude of champs that can simply close the distance instantly. Add in the fact that most mid players run that style of champion, veigar starts looking less and less promising.

Also - he doesnt have escape mechanisms, at all. Flash doesnt even count because literally everyone has it so it basically negates having it in the first place.

Been running teemo recently, but only 1-1 on pvp, where as I'm 2-1 with fortune. I haven't done much pvp yet, trying to build up masteries and runes

Right well you could say his stun can be used as an escape.
