: Loading Screen Update coming to PBE
Can we finally have enemy borders back as well? At least as a by default turned off option in the game. Would make loading screen way less empty and saying people get scared or daunted by enemies with better borders is a bad excuse at this point. Everyone already uses op.gg or some other form of 3rd party site or overlay to look up enemies.

No, because people aren't fucking focusing on what gender you are. They are instead focusing on talking about the game, discussing their ranks, how long they've been playing, talking about game balance of who they think is going to win this years worlds. Never have I ever had someone belittle me because I was born a female at ANY convention I've ever been to, whether it being Pax, comicon, animecon, etc. This is completely idiotic and I cannot believe they took this approach to an non-existing problem.

It's almost as if Riot is blaming the community for their own problems within the company. Pretty sad.
: I feel unit collision doesn't get enough discussion
As well as hitboxes. I think its time Riot finally assesses unit collision and hitboxes since almost every other systematic thingy was reworked such as Runes for example.
Meddler (NA)
: Yep, just confirmed, just a tooltip bug. Passive ratio isn't changing.
I feel like she's losing a lot for what she's getting. This doesn't seem like an overall buff that players were promised. I feel like the range nerfs are justified if the Q damage doesn't get nerfed. The damage reduction nerf is really good though.

But I don't think people actually want him to be "The King of Midlane". At least, I don't. The only thing I want is for him to be at least viable against all these FUCKsassins but his W does literally jack shit since everyone of them can just jump out of it. Making it give Grounded would be a great buff if you ask me.
Oh i don't want Viktor either. But the way his kit works is that he's either better than other midlaners or he's not seen at all. It also doesn't help that the current meta is so early focused while he'd rather scale and spike later on. IMO he has a really toxic kit that either gets number buffs and he's great or he needs a slight rework. The grounded mechanic would be nice but i'm pretty sure it wouldn't change almost anything about his current state.

Yes, let's add more damage in a game that already has a massive power creep problem. That sounds like a wonderful idea. And how isn't Viktor doing damage right now exactly?
Power creep doesn't necessarily only come from buffing numbers on champions. It has more to do with the fact that new Runes give you a disgusting amount of damage and make champions 20-30% stronger than they were. And on Viktor - he's not doing enough damage to be relevant. He still suffers from nerfs that happened to him ages ago as well as the changes to AP itemization that happened throughout the years. And i personally dislike Viktor and i hated the meta where he was the king of midlane but if people want to see him back in the meta his numbers need to be buffed.
: How about giving Viktor's W a Grounded effect? It's literally a gravitational field and it's his only counterplay towards the very same assassins that can just easily dash out of it. Besides, it's not like he's meta right now with his 48.5% win rate (what the fuck?). The guy needs some help. Source: https://champion.gg/champion/Viktor/Middle
Viktor doesn't need utility, he needs damage.

: Create a Third Rune Slot for Base Stats!
Hell yeah! Even more free cancerous stats to buff the enjoyable power creep that's in the game right now! /s New Runes already added so much that the stats you get from the trees shouldn't even exist in the first place. Especially since Riot also compensated each champion for the loss of the old Runes.

: SUPPORTS NEED NERFS
> Please make every role significant again, Riot. Or simply make support less significant as they should be. Even a lot of high elo and pro players stated the same. Supports have way too much power on their hands since they constantly got buffed over the seasons. Are they stronger cause of the damage creep that rose? Absolutely. Are they only strong cause of the damage creep? Absolutely not. Just take a look at their items that are atrocious as well as their gold income that makes the difference between a support and a carry champion non existant.
: nerfing vlad because he's played botlane
???????? Yes, lets forget that the champion is utterly broken in both mid and top as well for a long time now.
: midbeast trolling on stream.
It's nice that you all wanna jump on the witch hunting bandwagon but how about some context behind this? He was playing with wintraders and while this isn't the best way to deal with it he DIDN'T take cleanse, ghost and he finished the game 9/9. The second game was opened so he went AFK. Maybe next time also read the comment section of Reddit before copy pasting the post.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 14
As a solution to gold funneling, have you considered nerfing support items as they give a significant amount of gold to supports that are gold funneling as well as just being a huge gold income for supports in general for doing nothing. Even if they give up their lane and give all the resources to the jungler, they still remain relevant due to the amount of gold they receive and the amount of utility they provide. This also ties in since over the years supports kept getting buffed to the point where they have too much power now and nerfing some of the gold income could be a possible solution.
: she was moved to mid because she can burst any mid laner exept galio......thats why its a free win when you can 2 shot your laner
It's more of being able to deal with range really well which is what Irelia's niche was pre rework and is still relevant post rework. Besides that, mages are less aggressive than bruisers in top which makes it a perfect place for Irelia since her early game isn't the best in top lane. She's still a melee champion though, if you play the lane correctly you're not gonna lose it, especially since she doesn't even have a good ranged ability for csing.
: Nerf Irelia now
You can literally describe abilities from any champion and make them look OP. And while i'm not saying Irelia isn't good, this post is a garbage QQ thread. The champion is useless without her Q so i can see why it costs 20 mana and lets not forget you NEED to constantly spam it. And she actually does go OOM if she tries to clear the wave with her abilities but that's why she gets a Corrupting Pot. The thing that you're mostly complaining about is the fact that she's really mobile, which is what you're supposed to play around since it's pretty telegraphed to what she can use Q in order to get a reset. > she can 1 hit mages at lvl 3 Implying that you're just standing still and not fighting back. She can't actually all in someone before level 6 unless they're dumb or don't know how Irelia works. > > there is no champ that can lane vs her safly anymore How so? She loses almost all top lane matchups which is why she moved to mid where she can just scale with less issues. And even on mid, she's still a melee champion that can be harassed a lot early on as she doesn't have a ranged tool that she can cs with. She only becomes scary when she gets her R, just like any other assassin played on mid. Have you tried playing Irelia? Playing a champion you think is OP can usually teach you how to play against the thing that frustrates you. And you're literally coming from a lost game vs Irelia and typing up a storm without actually thinking anything through. And since you're a top laner i'm gonna acknowledge that you're complaining about top Irelia which makes no sense since the champion has almost no winning matchups up there. And with all of this out of the way, the things that could get nerfed are the bonus damage she does to minions with her Q to lower her wave clear early game, increasing the E CD which is pretty low right now when comparing it to something like a Fiora W or Yasuo's Windwall. The damage reduction on W isn't even that troublesome unless she's going AP. The bigger issue is how much AD scaling it has which is what should get nerfed as well. A more extreme nerf would be to cut her range to 175 units, but i hope Riot manages to balance her around her current value which is 200.

: Removing Runes: Yay or Nay?
While i'd say Yay, Riot acknowledges that League is the only game with a mechanic like this and would most likely not remove it due to that reason. What bugs me the most is that they keep adding more power and impact to Runes which is terrible for the game imo. I wouldn't mind having them if they weren't THIS impactful. A good example of not too impactful was actually Season 7. They reduced the damage on the amp runes and evened out the damage creep. Maybe we just need to give them time to balance it out, but then again, some decisions keep showing that Riot might not want to go back to how it was Rune wise.

: But how does that makes him hardstuck? if you can bounce up and down in ranks that means you're not consistent...which would mean you're not stuck. Plus he's openly said he doesn't give a shit about the game. I don't think hash would ever change as long as he gets money.
Regardless of that, he's still rocking a 50% wr. He's unable to defend his rating and always falls back to the old one which kinda makes him stuck. > Plus he's openly said he doesn't give a shit about the game. I don't think hash would ever change as long as he gets money. Beats me why ANYONE actually watches or even enjoys a delusional guy bitching about everything.
: Yeah kinda funny how zed is balanced around enemy buying armor... how fun that he gets to build full dmg, while enemy is forced to buy fucking armor, especially when they need ap, mana and cdr before they can start doing anything.
I mean, if the Zed wants to not be as squishy he also needs to get MR. And it's not just vs Zed. If you want to not get 1 shot you pretty much have to buy resistances vs any assassin.
: I just won as Udyr jg and it makes me want to quit LoL.
Wouldn't this be a normal outcome for jg Leona? She picked a really bad champion for the jungle and she got punished for it by a better jg champion, how is that not ok? It's literally like complaining that i got stomped for going support Katarina by a meta support such as Braum. You're also comparing some off meta jungle picks who were possible with a fucking Leona who was never viable jungle.
Xcion (NA)
: i never get this why do people call high elo streamers hardstuck? hash do dumb shit but he has been challenger every year
It's about consistency. He got to Challenger cuz it was early season and pretty much anyone who grinded enough could get it, given that you're at least a mid Diamond player. And hell no he wasn't Challenger every year. He's not a consistent player and always goes back to Diamond with his old ways. Plus he literally refuses to improve and would rather bitch about stuff.

: {{item:3134}} >{{item:3191}}. It straight up negates all the armor you get. Might as well remove all the armor from zhonyas, its useless anyway, just give it 400 hp instead.

It straight up negates all the armor you get. Might as well remove all the armor from zhonyas, its useless anyway, just give it 400 hp instead. But you get to keep your base armor though. If you didn't have that, you'd be dead even faster. And during lane the Zed player will feel even the cloth armor when he starts going for damage.
: Taliyah Nerfs are way over the line
Honestly it makes no sense. As someone who doesn't play Taliyah as frequent i still find this bullshit. She's literally made to shove and roam, what's the point of gutting her to this point? I understand that they want to make her less "oppressive" with what she does in competitive but then again, is she REALLY picked THAT much to justify such a huge nerf? I honestly like the choice of Taliyah in competitive games with her current iteration even if she can be considered a usual or safe choice.
: Love getting "outplayed by a Zed omegalulz"
Mmm why do people always blame the champion rather than their poor laning choices. There's a much higher chance that you're just a clown that doesn't understand how to lane rather than Zed being the problem. And if Zed is at a point where he can miss every skillshot and still kill you, you already fed your ass off. Even 1 {{item:1029}} does a lot of work during lane and is usually necessary when laning against Zed.

: ?????? First you're talking about dives and now you're talking about poking. Those are 2 different things buddy. Even so, that's a very poor usage of her abilities and it hurts her lane if you're looking at it from a bigger picture. I'm just surprised that a squishy melee champion is ever in position during the lane to be able to poke you under your turret.
Poking - Chipping the enemies hp little by little over time Diving - Going for an all in under the enemies turret Katarina's wave clear doesn't become good until you get some levels on her and even then literally any mage can keep up with it and punish her in the process since she has to give up range in order to clear the wave. And if she continuously shoves waves and stays in lane, she's just gonna get ganked. I don't see how it's relevant what happens in bronze or silver if it's known that those players are bad and don't understand how to play the lane. Your goal as a mage is to use your range as an advantage to create advantages such as cs leads, shoving her in early and punish her with one sided trades since she's a melee champion.
: “If you die to a gank you’re bad” well shit I guess everyone who’s ever played the game ever is bad at the game then. Damn.
...well yes. Dying is essentially a mistake, and everyone makes them. 99% of the time there was a different thing you could've done to change a certain outcome.
Terozu (NA)
: W. Run under turret. Throw dagger. Shunpo out before ot hits. It's one of her most basic poke tricks in an offensive lane.

: Kat can W, dive you, then jump out without the turret touching her.
Are we forgetting that she has a 3 second cooldown on her E even if she picks up her dagger before level 6? Even after, until like level 11 it doesn't become fast enough and by that time the laning phase is over anyways.

Morgana though contrary to camille or LB has a very very high floor. As long as you master how to E your ADC at the right time (or yourself) you can pretty much do more than many supports in lane. Because W takes 0 skill so you have to try really hard to not get value from it. And her ulti too is only position based, you cant even cast it if they are out of its range. And we arrive at the only part of her kit that requires a bit of skill her Q. Which if you are not comfortable of landing you just keep as a threat and use it on close range when the chance to hit it is maximized. And if its paired with a cait that can just follow up with trap or xayah with root or ashe ult or varus ult its pretty much win you the 2v2 with the minimum skill required. OH and lets give her a mastery like aery to get that little bit of shield on top OR damage early. One of the easiest champions to proc spellthief's too. It is like the stars have aligned in a way and everything suits her at the moment. It is not that she is broken based on kit alone but she uses too many things too efficiently to cover her weaknesses too damn well.

: Re: Celerity Before Rune Reforged, it was possible to get +4.5% MS from Quint. This was not free, this was a big trade-off with a big opportunity cost. Yet, it was the right choice for some champs. Some champs desperately need that MS. Celerity was already weaker, and if it is going to be made more situational on top of it, I'm really not convinced it will be enough. I don't like to write negative posts so early before we even see what's the replacement like, but if I wait too long, there will be no time to consider those champs that need it. **Don't nerf Celerity, make it a bigger trade-off.**
It actually is pretty free. Almost no champions took the movement speed Quints pre runes reforged. The only one i can remember was Twisted Fate. > Some champs desperately need that MS. Celerity was already weaker, and if it is going to be made more situational on top of it, I'm really not convinced it will be enough. No they don't, they're balanced around not needing it. It's literally just a nice free stat that's unnecessary. And how is it weak? Meddler literally said how it's strong and how it's being taken the majority of the time over the other options.

Meep Man (NA)
: Probably the truth, although I can say that Yi, Irelia, and Fiora for certain are going to build this item. Xin Zhao most likely as well.
Yi - Definitely Fiora - Possibly. Triforce + Hydra + another sustain item or tanky items are just so good on her. I can see it being picked up as a 3rd or 4th item if it ends up being really efficient though. I don't agree on Irelia tho. You're most likely not always using your W when a fight starts, especially when you engage with your R. You're only gonna get the value off on your E which doesn't seem that efficient since you already have the mechanic of resetting your Q. If it does get picked up i'm pretty sure it's only gonna be cause of the stats that the item provides rather than the passive. Xin is in the same boat as Yi. The only question is, is it better over his other items.
Terozu (NA)
: Yes. Thats how you actuvate ER. Then you q shunpo and auto to lower Q cooldown.
The thing is, it's just not efficient enough. The question you should be asking yourself is : Is this build better than what she normally gets? Rather than : Can this work?
Meep Man (NA)
: I was specifically talking about non-Marksman.
Mb about not paying attention to that. Although i think some champions on the list won't be able to abuse the item as well as you think. Especially with what it means having to build it over other items. It could be like a 3rd or 4th item option for bruisers but most of the time they want tanky items unless they're hard snowballing.
Terozu (NA)
: As a Kat main i know the delay on her daggers gives her plenty of time to auto which you should always take advantage of.
Yes, pre 6. Afterwards you just fill the gap with her R most of the time.

: The New Essence Reaver- We Should Probably Look At This
Are we forgetting about Lucian? The URF champ once this thing goes live.
Terozu (NA)
: Being a Kat main with over 2000 games played on her over 5 years of gameplay, She can Q and W more while staying in range with her E. Letting her double or triple her damage output via her passive. Particularly on AD builds this item will be pretty strong. And the fact that you bring up rank at all is laughable. Rank doesnt account for poor execution and poor computers. Pretty hard to climb with a $200 computer with a footprint in the screen that runs the game at 10fps. Furthermore disregarding someone based solely on rank shows arrogance and contempt. If you are so knowledgable explain how it wont be good on her.
If you indeed are a Kat main then you should also know that after early game she no longer has time to add AA's in her combos unless she wants to explode before she kills her targets. The item isn't good since it only procs the CD if you AA enemies which drastically slows down Katarina.
: Or you just can't accept the fact that you're wrong, because with a soft mmr reset every season, why would they be in gold or plat? You're forgetting that anything D4+ is high elo lol.
You literally make no sense and seem kinda delusional. What does the mmr reset have to do with this? High elo is very subjective since some people view it as Plat+ and some people view it was Challenger+. For starters you don't even know the actual accounts that these players use, you just cherry picked random accounts with the name of the pro player that's lower elo. I'm not sure why you're even discussing on this subject if you don't understand how master and challenger work.
