Sun Tzu brah, never underestimate your opponent.
That was stated with life in reference, not a competitive sport. In competitive sports research matters but mindset trumps all. If you are using lol nexus just to gauge your opponent you are allowing yourself to be influenced already by them when they have given you no info in the game.
The game being played gives you all the info you should need.
I don't always lose, but when I do it's purple sideu!!!
logically speaking you can look at what runes and masteries they're using and guess how you'll have to play, what you'll need to buy, and even check if it's a duo queue to see if your lane will be camped
"When you want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful!"
you can see there runes
^This and their masteries. Pretty much the only reason I use lolnexus... Also to see if they are premade with the jungler so I know if I will get hard camped or not.
One time I was top and against a Talon. Dude had no armor runes.
Usually I would have built tanky but that game I leaned more towards AD because I knew I would crush that Talon...
But then the duo bot on my team DC'd so we loss. Wasn't happy...

One time I was going to go Karthus mid with Vlad top and their team had a Riven top. I looked it up, and Riven was plat (I'm bronze, so was Vlad I think). I asked Vlad if he wanted to switch lanes -- Riven counters him anyway, and if we lost, I wanted it to be my fault you know. Well...we didn't lose. I beat her in lane too because I played very cautious while she was, I'm sure, over-confident.
In my last game, I was with my Bronze friends and we were against 2 silvers and a gold (granted, it's solo queue 5v5 ratings even though we're in 3v3 teams...but whatever). We were losing BAD (like, REAL bad. like, they had ALL our turretsgand inhibs and we had none of their turrets. yeah, lol) and the enemy team made fun of us for being bronze......then we came back and beat them. I think they got over-confident and cocky because we were bronze.

Clicking on them
A. Requires knowing their base stats and doing a bit of guesswork on their masteries
B. Only works when they are visible on the map
C. Doesn't let you change what you are getting at the start of the game. The very quote you are responding to mentions starting with Doran's Blade cause he knew the enemy's masteries/runes. He wouldn't have been able to tell that if he didn't check them on lolnexus.

GameRaven is awesome so thanks for making it Corrupt_Power
Sun Tzu "brah": water flows acording to the ground over wich it flows, a soldier prepares against the foe it is facing, just like water there are no constant condition set in battle.
Or something like that, to lazy atm to search on google for the correct phrase.

Death or glory I will find, Rebellion on my mind
It makes you realize just how bad the match making is.
Last night I was in ranked. Did lol nexus during loading. Because first pick picked Karthus so I wanted to see if he was a karthus Pro who doesnt mind being counter picked
