: 2018 Worlds event Teemo icon
As far as I know you need to watch 30 vods in order to earn the icon. Can't find a source on that though.
Limrick (NA)
: How many items does Jhin have to break wide open for people to accept that their perfect husbando isn't actually flawless after all? The man has abused Lethality, DFT, Guinsoo's, HoB, and now Stormrazor. Maybe, just maybe, it's Jhin.
It's usually his weird interactions with said items, not necessarily the champion itself.
RaiNinja (NA)
: Azir's been fixed a bunch of times, should he be deleted?
No, because he's a champion and champions don't get deleted, just reworked.
: Delete Duskblade? nonono! In Soviet Russia, Duskblade delete you!
Not only in Soviet Russia, unfortunately.
5050BS (NA)
: More Def items that trigger on their own and I can still move (not slowed or anything), still can fight and does not cost me mana. fyi {{item:3156}} {{item:3053}} =/= {{item:3157}} {{item:3040}}
And give you extra stats while the shield is up, mind you.
: Nah he means there are very few instances of mr shredding or mr penetration thus Void is mandatory as one of the only items that does so. AP - {{item:3916}} {{item:3020}} {{item:3135}} AD - {{item:3147}} {{item:3814}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3033}} {{item:3036}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3071}} (Conqueror) (Sudden Impact to some extent since it's a hard to utilize rune for most mages)
{{item:3136}} just for completion's sake, but it's still a much worse version of black cleaver.
: MR stops AP burst damage a lot better than Armor does AD.
That's because AD "burst" generally comes from auto attacks or from assassins who have a plethora of Armor shredding items anyways. You can fire infinite auto attacks with no cost, but abilities actually have cooldowns.
: inb4 an assassin buys Atma's plus Sterak's in the LCS so he can burst a squishy while in the middle of their team
Shahamut (NA)
: Funny. Yasuo doesn't use either of those
Yasuo's problem is that he basically has free reign to build whatever the fuck he wants after the third item since he has all the stats he needs at that point : 100% Crit, True Damage on Autos, AD, AS and Lifesteal. Yasuo's 2 item 100% crit needs to go.
: No, he actually does have a perfectly good point. Imagine adding up the BE cost of every champion together. When a new champion gets added there is a 6300 increase to that pool, with a smaller decrease on another champion, and a larger one every 3 new champions. With a rework though that pool doesn't change at all; so if your idea was put in place there would be nothing but a net loss on BE, and the pressure of BE costs does generate RP purchases for Riot. So while I do agree that it would feel better to see champion price drops more frequently, it doesn't actually make sense to do price drops for reworks for the same reason that there are price drops for new champions. That doesn't mean there isn't an argument for price drops on reworks, but you can't use the same argument that is used for new champions because they have completely different impacts on the total champion pool BE cost. The only way reducing BE prices on rework for the same reason as BE prices are reduced on new champion would be if reworks brought champion costs back up to 6300 BE.
I agree with this, but it would be even more of a net loss since, unlike new champions, many people already own champions that get reworked, so a lot less people purchase them.
FâgLord (EUW)
: Nasus is a terribly designed champion
He's probably the most stat-stick champion in League currently. He gets free damage for existing from Q, he gets HP, Armor and MR with his ult, he gets Armor Pen with his E, he gets lifesteal from his passive. Every single one of his abilities buffs his stats, with the exception of W which just makes one enemy team player completely useless by sapping their stats away. He needs a rework, bad. His kit requires no input.
: {{champion:11}} <-- this is what we call garbage, young traveller.
No, I'm pretty sure that's called acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
: 47% winrate in platinum+ https://champion.gg/champion/Yasuo/Middle?league= Edit - What's with the downvotes? The stats don't lie...
yeah and 18% pick rate, but that doesn't fit the narrative now does it...
Rioter Comments
: Tank buffs not fair? what a joke, > **I LITERALLY STAND WITH MALPHITE IN PRACTICE TOOL VS A CAITLYN BOT FULL BUILD AND SHE WAS ABLE TO TAKE ME DOWN IN A FEW SECONDS WITH FULL TANK BUILD.** thats not okay, not okay at all. sure i can kill her shes a bot but that level of damage on MALPHITE is not showing tanks being overpowered or anything unfair for buffs.
What part of "nerf damage" wasn't clear? If she deals less damage Malphite will become tankier by proxy.
: you listed several damage runes though.
The only damage ones he listed were Aery, Grasp and Predator. They do deal damage, however they (except Aery) are mainly utility runes with Grasp giving a heal and Predator giving a speedup.
: Summoner Spell "Fortify" Would Fit Into this Meta.

GigglesO (NA)
: This season has killed my power fantasy...
Remember when "one-shotting" someone was actually a rare occurrence? When being SO fed that you could kill someone with just a few abilities was spectacular? That's what made "one-shots" cool, the fact that they didn't happen all the time and on every champion.
THE D1C (NA)
: > [{quoted}](name=Seen,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=LagLwtvo,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2018-07-25T02:00:11.120+0000) > > Nani the fuck riot. 26 second cd on a non-ult skill? He already has problem sticking onto mobile champions. Why would you increase his W cd? That makes his solo laning unplayable. Quinn’s W is like 50 seconds rank 1. Doesn’t do damage :-/
Except it has a powerful passive, which is the core of the ability. Having a No Cost, long range ward every 50 seconds isn't that bad imo.
: zed q is very narrow and loses a lot of its damage if it passes through minions, what more do you want?
I don't "want" anything. I'm just saying his Q isn't difficult to land at all. Especially since we're looking at it through the context of Electrocute.
Tegash (NA)
: "3 unique spellcasts or basic attacks"
Summoner *Spell* Also items like {{item:3152}} {{item:3153}} {{item:3146}} proc it too afaik.
: what? not much skill to hit 2 zed q's? what skillshots do take skill then? the ones that only have a single projectile?
The ones that aren't fast and get blocked on minions.
: you can't count zed W as a non-damaging ability when it can literally do damage when you use another ability. it makes no sense to compare it to Aatrox E etc. the examples you give are completely different from zed's situation.
Should Jayce's barrier be counted as a damaging ability because it can empower your Q?
Pika Fox (NA)
: Aatrox has no major movement other than out of combat ult movespeed....
He has 2 dashes on his E. Sure, they're small but they're still there
: Next rework is {{champion:84}} and they want to _add_something to her. More pain coming. Plus new fizz w on patch 8.15 or .16
: Like there weren't even more ridiculous examples in the very early stages of the game. {{champion:54}} This guy is a literal living mountain and he has a dash.
Well it's on his R and it has a giant cooldown. It's his ultimate move - [U N S T O P P A B L E F O R C E]
: A reminder that the DIANA E BUG is still a thing and even more prevalent than ever
> Riot please fix or finally rework Diana. It's a bug, Diana doesn't need a rework.
Kai Guy (NA)
: Honestly, the playerbase trys to enforce a meta more then riot does.
My first ranked game after placements. I was Silver 5 and decided to pick up Nunu Jungle. My top lane Yorick declared that Nunu wasn't a jungle champ and proceeded to int and lose us the game. Couldn't have been introduced to ranked in a better way.
: My biggest issue is that ARURF does not seem to actually be AR. I played a good 20-30 games and I never saw a Volibear, Pyke, Quinn, Draven, and so on. Yet I've played against Jax and Veigar at least 10 times. And yeah it could just be players re-rolling to not get those champs, but out of 20 games I didn't see these champions ever appear in my team's rolls or mine. It seems as if they're pushing the odds for certain champions, usually mages and assassins higher, while bumping down champions that wouldn't be as broken. I want the old URF, I won't to be able to pickup silly champions and use silly builds rather than getting dicked by this rng every other game.
I'm pretty sure someone from Riot said in a post that they had added a filter that makes more popular champs more common. Not 100% on that though.
AgiIity (EUNE)

Danjeng (NA)
: Domination users are stealing our Sorc culture. First ult hat and now our stats too. They love to take our things and claim it as their own, but they still hate us. And people say we are in a post-meta world.
Rayet (EUNE)
: Why is Arcane Comet the only rune that can miss its target? It was made for mages, but you can't even land it without a cc.
Well to be fair you can miss Aftershock too.

: If it was just a regular shield then it would cuck most ignite users they'd have to make a completely new shield type that can't eat true damage as well.
There is a shield type that only eats physical damage. {{champion:164}}'s passive for example.
: More like why is it in Sorcery at all - a tree dedicated to "Empowered abilities and resource manipulation"
So assassins can get the free damage stats early game and still have defensive options :)
: ''Let me outplay this brand. If dodge miss his W i win the trade!'' *hits E, *hits Q because, come on, that shits just like fizz's R *wins trade with half a combo because fuck logic
: They could switch it up and have Leona be the evil/dark one. That would be fun.
Well if you read the lore and listen to the voice lines, it becomes pretty clear that Diana is kind of a "good guy" in their story. She discovers ancient knowledge and when she tells everyone about it they attempt to cast her out/kill her. Leona is traditional and conservative, while Diana is more free-spirited and open to change.

They maybe not but the kingdoms they rule DO and they are their king's so... {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
Except they aren't the rulers of either Noxus or Demacia. That would be {{champion:50}} and {{champion:59}} respectively. The only reason Darius and Garen have a rivalry is because their kits are similar and they're fighting for opposing forces. That's literally all the connection there is.

> (they are only hunters in the lore hunting each other to who is gonna kill the other faster but that's about it they dont have any deeper connection or "Sisterhood" or betrayal or grew up together and been cast out or something like that They actually have gameplay integrated into their rivalry, their kits are similar and their entire characters revolve around one another. The reason they don't have a "deeper connection" is because your definition can't be applied to the type of characters they are, their connection is something much more primal. It's more than a rivalry, it's a fight for survival and dominance.
Acheron16 (EUW)
: While their spawn points and timings are the same, it's random which will spawn. Like how Dragon always spawns at a certain time in the Dragon pit, but the type of dragon is initially. random. Aka luck based systems.
Huh? Blast Cone always spawn for the first time 10 seconds or so before jungle creeps, pretty sure scryer's bloom also spawns at a fixed time.
: Who do i main to be a one trick player? (One trick responses encouraged and welcomed!)
{{champion:85}} play this boi. You can play him AP/On-Hit/AD, you can play him Support, Mid, Top and ADC. He's versatile, skill expressive, has good CC, good damage, OK survivability and he's easy to learn, but has a high skill ceiling. Can't go wrong with Kennen.
: Why isnt it constructive to point out a flaw in Riot's approach to something without a solution? Please explain. Should we never voice criticisms when something is wrong? That seems to be what you're suggesting. Its perfectly reasonable to see a flaw in something without knowing how to fix it, particularly when its not YOUR JOB to fix it. Thats like saying if my car my brand new Ford car has a fatal flaw that causes the breaks to not work that I shouldnt inform Ford of this flaw because I dont know how to fix it. Seems like a pretty stupid way of thinking doesnt it? You're literally just regurgitating the same trash Rioters say in threads, why the fuck should I do their job and waste my timing coming up with solutions for problems they create and get paid to fix?
My problem isn't that you are pointing out a problem without giving a solution. My problem is that you dismiss a proposed solution without explaining why and then basically say "You know what would solve the problem better than [X SOLUTION]? - SOLVING THE PROBLEM!". That's how I understood it anyways. Of course you don't need to propose a solution to the problem you're pointing out, but can you at least explain WHY the solution you dismiss isn't valid?
Acheron16 (EUW)
: Too many mechanics are based around luck for a so called "competitive" game. Crit Plants Dragons
Plants? What's luck based about them? The only one that I can think of is the honeyfruit, the others have consistent respawn timers.
: TIL you have to design the game to point out what sucks about it
Except no one is arguing that games SHOULD be decided at 10 minutes. Buffing objectives is a proposed solution to this (though maybe not the best). Saying "don't solve the problem this way, JUST SOLVE THE PROBLEM" isn't constructive and is just pointless.

Towers already do this. Check mate nerd
: Well, Boneplating apparently does reduce true damage even thought it is not a shield. If there is a mastery, who is to say there will not be an item? Knowing riot and their "fresh over balance" mentality, there will be something like that at some point. what we can hope for is that this point is not anytime soon.
It kind of IS a shield though, it's just not one shown on your champ's HP bar.
: Actually it's more like Both: Passives empower an auto attack 3x Q ability with similar hitboxes besides iteration 1 W is the only CC ability (though Riven's is better) E's are both dashes (Riven gets a shield, Aatrox gets more damage) R's both make the champion "bigger" (riven sword, attrox model) and increase damage with a secondary effect. By the direct kit comparison, Aatrox is a worse Riven. However, Aatrox does take less skill to play, much large hp pool, inbuilt healing, and an on-demand revival. They play two different ways and as such shouldn't be compared that literally. Is Aatrox's kit innovative? Not at all. Is he a Riven clone? Some aspects, yes, others no.
> W is the only CC ability (though Riven's is better) Both aatrox and Riven have CC on their Qs. Riven has a knock-up on her third Q, while Aatrox has shorter knock-ups on all of his Q casts.

Maybe carry harder? I sacrificed a lot of farm so I could camp mid, got her fed and we 2 man carried a 3/22 bot lane.
Not saying The Spicy Crit is right, but you carried with an ADC so it isn't really the best example.
: You got 100-0d by a fed assassin, what exactly is it that you're surprised by? Don't feed him next time. Also, that wasn't even a ranked game, it was a normal game...
And as we all know assassins get the special buff "Lul it's normals" that grants them 50% increased damage when not in a ranked game.
: Plus, we don't know what the CS disparity looked like at this point or item builds.
If there was a big CS disparity Kayn would most likely be higher level.
