: There's a very important reason it does that. It's to prevent you from flashing during the ult cast time and then getting kicked anyway (wasting your flash). Skarner used to not stun you when his ult was casting. Was not fun.
STFU with you BS Riot logic. You work for a piece of shit company that could give a flying fuck about about game balance or fairness. Your company promotes certain champions because they feel its good for pro play, and yet Riot makes it so hard for pro teams to actually make money....and it takes 7 of the top league tournaments to equal the top Dota 2 in terms of pay out. Meanwhile your moronic boss Marc Merrill proves his stupidity every time he discusses ANYTHING, while usually blaming his own customers for not being smart enough to understand what they are doing....and you have the nerve to come on this board, and say something so stupid? That's why you have 69 downvotes pal. Time to wise up.
: I've learned of the many years of playing that everyone thinks they are lcs shot callers, but they just don't have the skill yet. IUntil I'd say, diamond, people really don't get its about getting objectives instead of forcing shit team fights. They don't understand if you're trying to split, they need to defend or push another lane, but most of the time they start a fight and lose 4v5 then blame you for not showing up.
Exactly. I tell them this all the time and they just refuse to understand the value of a fed split pusher, especially if the enemy team fight is pretty strong.

: They wanted to add "strategic depth" to masteries instead of everyone taking the same page for every champ with only changing one or two things. That worked out so well.
Riot is incompetent at best.
: But it's often people like you who then turn around and say "I don't care if it's normals - at least play right" So where the heck do the people who don't care about winning go?
Cool story, but I don't play normals. That is like playing poker for fake money. Nothing is on the line. Its not the same.
: I have gotten banned for telling people literally this in game. Take my upvote, but honestly, if winning ranked DOES matter to you, don't play League of Legends. Riot has turned this game into a casual cesspool in the worst way. Competitive players that display their competitiveness are so easily targeted by both the ban bot and by trolls who know that they can provoke "toxic" responses from people like us.
Well, thats because Marc Merrill is a world class piece of shit human being
: > When you see kids playing sports in high school or pros on TV, they all at some point were basically sat down (not literally, but over time) and explained by older, or more experienced players or coaches how different positions are played in order to win. Uh, yeah, because they're playing competitively. Big difference.
Uh last I checked ranked and LCS was competitive.

: Current Thoughts on Marksmen
"Courage of the Colossus is still too strong. That contributes to some characters feeling unkillable for marksmen. Some of those champs are also too strong in general as well (hi Poppy) Yeah, well, as soon as you reworked Poppy I knew immediately she was too strong. How come the players can immediately see when a champion is too strong but Riot, you guys, seem to just release shit that always unbalanced or broken? AND THE it takes you like 6 months to year to roll it back? I mean you do realize that the player base doesn't exactly view Riot as capable of making consistently good decisions, right? Furthermore, please read this post http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/EEaFLvPN-top-laners-defensive-abilities-vs-aatrox-and-his-shitty-oh-so-shitty-passive-meddler

: If it ALL is lowered, than nothing would change except for defensive champions becoming much more dominate.
Wrong. What would change is that fights wouldn't end as quickly. It will allow more players to be able to react to situations, thereby taking away the advantage of players who have faster reflexes. I dont know if that is good or bad, but I feel like this game is supposed to be strategic and tactical, not an arcade shooter.
: Top laners defensive abilities VS Aatrox and his shitty oh so shitty passive @meddler
Any day now Meddler. I don't want you fucking up the rework of Aatrox they way you guys famously fuck up reworks. So start paying attention to that Aatrox mains are saying.

It used to be way too powerful upon release and got nerfed into oblivion in the same manner the original poppy and yorick were. I'm not out of touch with reality you just didn't understand what I was saying.
I understand what you are saying and its irrelevant. Look at fighters and other top laners Olaf--free resistances Nasus--bonus resistances and health with ult Tryndamere--invincibility, while still being able to attack Pantheon--gets to block unlimited damage for free just by using abilities. Riven, gets a shield that scales off of AD Jax, can block incoming damage You see the problem? Aatrox has nothing like that except a shitty passive which should read, upon dying, sit there and die again in a few seconds. He has no functional defensive abilities, and nothing to counter other champions directly.
: Yeah, basically, "Tank" means "Can survive 3 of my autos".
Semantics. If it builds tanky,functionally in that game, its a tank. If Your Jax build is the tankiest thing on the enemy team you will say, "don't focus jax" and what you mean by that is "dont focus the tank"

On what basis do you think the blades would be too powerful? He needs a rework the issue with Aatrox is the whole massive sustain/massive damage at the switch of a button is far too powerful and he was gutted because of that. It's the same idea as Yorick and his old ghouls and Poppy and her old ultimate.

: No to your ideas to Blades and Price. Makes them way too powerful. Yes on the idea for Massacre. I'd argue the speed granted to allies should scale with Aatrox's current Blood Pool, so he can't just ult and sit beside an ADC while they shoot really fast. Require him to use abilities and hit enemies to make Massacre better for his allies. Fit's with his lore, too.
Right, and Fiora getting free tenancity, and the the ability to block incoming damage and slowing attack speed isn't too powerful? It totally fucks over champions like Aatrox. Does Aatrox have anything that fucks over any fighters? Answer: N0. Aatrox has a low pick rate and low win rate. On what basis do you think the blades would be too powerful?

: So you want plants removed just because either your Dragon timing is bad or the fact that your team didn't really give a fuck to ward around the red jungle for incoming enemy team.
That's not what I am saying, and you know that is not what I am saying. You just want that to be what I am saying because its easier to argue against me as a person instead of addressing the core issue I raised.
: Use your brain. If the support is first pick your idea can't work.
Really? He cant click a button that asks another lane to swap?
: But imagine if there was a team that had a good yas support? Like, they had practiced and practiced. Then suddenly, you get riot to take away their ability to pick that. Is that fair? You must stick with the rules you listed above, you can't just revise your rules. Finally, your ego shows in the language you use. It's kind of pretentious-ish.
Doesn't matter how much a Yas practices. He will eventually go up against other support champions that are just as practiced and because of his kit, he will put his team and ADC at a disadvantage in more situations then would make it worth playing. No matter how you slice it, it won't pay enough long term. That is why you don't see it. People inherently understand this. They just don't realize that Teemo is in that same boat.
: Don't say we all. It's a blanket statement that just isn't true. Also I started February of this year so I was always exposed to DQ from the start.
Its a general statement that you are supposed to read as "a lot of players".
: So it's like how items allow champs to get new abilities and passives to make up for the deficits of their kits?
Yes. Items are out of control. They do too much and sync much better with some champions than others.
: And I will respect your opinion. My team mates were iffy with SIon and Malph, and were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. I understand that you have a bad history with the off meta, but not all the champions have the label of support. You did just state that tank should also qualify, but would the system? In theory if it was programmed correctly, yes, but on the off chance a champion has a label you don't agree with? Ashe is labeled as a Controller secondary. That is what many buff/debuff, hard cc supports are labeled. In theory, Ashe is a support. I know comparing Teemo and Ashe isn't quite right, but it comes to mind. What then?
I would say Riot should just go to down the line of all champions and designed ones that are qualified to be supports. Primary and Secondary class should never include "Support" It should include something the describes what they are--fighter, tank, mage etc. Some champions whos kits meet the criteria for support should have a designation. That COULD include champions from any class, but probably not many fighters and assassins. I mean, sure I'm FREE to play Karma as Jungle, but I don't and no one does because its clearly troll. If it were prohibited because she didn't meet the requirements in her kit, then nothing would have changed. The problem is that idiots got the idea that brand and teemo were viable supports. And in a vaccum, in certain team comps against certain team comps and players, it might work. It might work if a team practices with it. But in ranked solo que, it doesn't work enough. Its awful .

: Why didn't you kill the plant before trying to sneak a dragon?
Wasn't sneaking it, didnt' come from that side.
: Or this is you not wanting plants and looking for reasons to trash them. Trust me, they aren't desperate.
They are actually. They keep making changes that we all hate because they are so concerned about getting new players they give the finger to the old ones. Remember how they decided for us that solo que was no good, and we all had to yell at them for an entire year until they decided to put solo que back? If they were calm and reasonable they wouldn't have rushed into so many changes they make. But they aren't. Their actions is evidence to that.
: kill the plant before you start the dragon hurr durr
Didnt come from that side numbnuts
: If you're going to get rid of those, I want you to get rid of zyra and brand too. Hate those guys in support. On the other hand, I've had genuinely good yasuo supports. It's not conventional, and not everyone can do it, but I've seen it work.
Brand is a bs support, but zyra is totally legit as support
: Honestly, your ego is even higher than the other guy. You're telling people that they should be banned from picking certain characters for certain roles. Kind of a jerk-ish thing to do.
No. I am advocating the integrity of the game. Nothing to do with Ego my friend.
Kaioko (NA)
: The difference in if you have a jump ability is that not only are you able to jump into the dragon pit, you're also able to get back out. Giving an ability to everyone does not somehow negate the ones you already had. Hecarim in that example would've been forced to use his ultimate to get out.
That is all well and good. But some champions kits don't have that ability. Their kit is loaded and drawback is lack of a jump or dive. This means that one of their inherent weakness is the inability to easily get over or through walls. I don't care if the jumping champions now has 2 jumps. The point is that the other non jumping champion just had a huge restriction lifted because of these plants.
: What Kaioko said. Plus, you can clearly see every plant through the fog of war, this shouldn't be surprising. Also, the presence of blast cones makes it possible for some champs to finally let go of flash and try other summoners combinations.
Sorry but the whole plant idea just reeks of a company desperately train to do something creative. Forced creativity doesn't work. No one was complaining about not enough stuff in the Jungle. That is just Riot thinking they have to keep making changes.
: While I'm not a fan of the plants, I'm forced to disagree because your argument was. "I got outplayed because of X aspect of the game, remove it!"
That isn't my argument. My argument is that it makes champions more alike and thereby compensates for their weakness, which begs the argument why even have weakness if Riot is just going to put plants and items that fix the champions inherent problems?
