Talon is powerful, and it's crazy to go up against him as an AP carry. ganks could work, unless he just pops his ult. You could stop THAT by buying oracle's, but should a champion really be that much trouble just to MAYBE kill him? As far as fighting him goes, he just silences you, Q's, W's, not necessarily in that order, and then ults right when the silence wears off. Then what? You're left with a circle of blades rushing at you, that probably deal the killing blow. Talon then wonders off to other lanes, most likely killing people who are overextended. I just don't know something to have with me to fight a Talon in mid lane. If someone could explain to me what to do, it would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for getting off-topic. As for the thing that makes me feel decent about my skills:
I wouldn't say I'm amazing at prediction, but sometimes I get things right and know what to do strategically to get an advantage.
That being said, I'm not the most amazing fighter because I panic xD but it's something I'm working on. Overall, just the fact that I want to improve myself through every game makes me a decent player.
