Tanks // 02 // Singed, the Mad Chemist
"How about a drink?"
The thing about League is that they try to keep every champion with at least some unique feel to them, whether or not there are certain similarities (Blitz hook vs Thresh hook, Light Binding vs Dark Binding, etc). And you don’t get more unique, or out of the ordinary, as Singed. When playing Singed, and you find yourself in a rough spot, considering what you’re doing, and ask yourself: “Would this be a good idea with any other champion?”
If yes, you stop that shit right now. If no, have at it, hoss. Proxy farm. Run in, love tap, run out. Do everything in your power to work a global taunt as powerful as Teemo’s mere presence. Make them chase Singed and choke on his poison trail. Turn around, speed up with Insanity Potion, and fling them right back into the poison cloud if they snap out of it and try to get away. Trick them into thinking they’ve got you at 10 Health, and turn it around to get the Ace.
Singed is the only champion I truly consider to be an out and out “troll pick,” in that you’re picking Singed and you’re doing it just to get a rise out of the enemy team, just to taunt them. And that’s what Singed does best: turning a match of League into a Benny Hill sketch.
No joke, I put on a 20 minute loop of Yakety Sax, and just ran around going “WOO-HOO! WOO-HOO! HOO-HOO-HOO!” and it was the most fun I’ve had in ages.
