Yes. That's the joke.

: actually if you have a wave frozen in your favor, thats exactly when you should help your jungler gank (assuming they cant turn and just kill you)
Again, depends. If anything, if i were a jungler I'd be much happier to know that one lane that's being peacefully frozen doesnt actually need to be ganked. In a situation like that as a jungler id have more space to passively farm jungle or focus my attention on other lanes. It's my freezing laner's duty to keep the freeze going without allowing enemy jungler to break it by getting a kill on him.
: Dead lane opponent > frozen wave
Depends. Often I'd much rather gain an advantage by starving the opponent rather than getting a silly 100 gold from killing him and allowing the lane to reset, or even worse, push back into his turret which would allow him to freeze instead.

So, he's returning to his release state? Oh wait he had a shield then too. Guess it's a nerf in the long run :(
: Yep.
Didn't adc champions have something similar after rune update? That the lack of flat ad made last hitting "different" than before and even if it had 3hp left after an autoattack, minion would still die and give gold? Or is it something completely different and I'm just making a clown out of myself?

: Probably not anytime soon. Hell, I'm super concerned about the family as a whole, since Cassiopeia has seemed to be deliberately left out of the dialogues of recent Noxians like Urgot, and given vague acknowledgements by Swain. It almost appears to me that they're trying to push out of the Du Coteau family, which I don't like.
Same tbh. I have multiple issues with how they're deciding to handle this "funky family". Talon also has been completely left out even during the entire Noxus lore update. At this point I'm scared that they'll just try to make us forget the connections between those champs even exist. Meanwhile Noxus situation just begs for Game of Thronesy-esque treatment, with multiple noble families fighting for power and whatnot. So many cool ideas and (at least right now) they're letting them all slip through their fingers.

All of these happened/were in development before/during the recent shitshow. I've seen enough cases where companies bend over to the radicals just for the sake of saving their image. I'm pretty damn sure the same will happen with league.

Shitting on the lane opponent form, aoe nuker with ult ap scaling form and second adc if he decides to abuse adc items. I thought this was a serious post until I got to here. Kennen is bottom tier, one of the weakest champions game, gets craped on top lane.
Yikes. I wasn't talking about his current state. Perhaps i didn't word it clearly enough but i meant that if he ever becomes popular, it's because one of those three things for one reason or another become stronger. He will be either broken or completely useless. Currently he's on the useless part of that scale.

Don't be delusional. Reading this post, it seems like you didn't play when tanks were meta... I'm not referring to some random point in the last 2 seasons where a tank champion was strong for a patch. I'm referring to the cinderhulk meta in season 5 (2015). Ornn did not deal 20% max HP with W because, well, HE DIDN'T EXIST (until patch 7.17) Tanks didn't rush bramble vest against bruisers because, well, IT DIDN'T EXIST (until patch 7.24) So hey, the two arguments you make against the tank meta didn't exist when there was a tank meta. Popular opinion was the tank/cinderhulk meta was great. e.g. https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/AHWtFUHA-league-never-has-been-or-will-be-better-than-the-cinderhulk-meta Look at the upvotes on that thread and on the top comments. Sure, assassins didn't love it that they actually had to work to kill someone. That's not really a bad thing, since everyone else hated dying immediately to any assassin if the assassin remotely got ahead (having a tank to peel for you was great - and assassins could still do work, they just needed to actually pick their targets carefully instead of blindly always just bee-lining straight for the ADC for a free kill).
Reading your anwser, it seems like you disregarded all of the context in my post. I wasn't talking about any particular part in league's history but about how utterly stupid multiple tanks were for a long-ass time, each for an other period of that time. And yes, i did play during the cinderhulk fiasco. Hence my 40s under turret comment which happened during that time. And for the love of satan stop using popular opinion as an argument. 99% of the community is below the level this game is being balanced around.

I was with you up until that comment. Tank meta was BY FAR the best meta league has ever had, and likely ever will have. I have always come to these boards a lot, whether I was happy with the state of the game or not, and during the tank meta there were FAR FEWER complaints about game balance than I've ever seen. The complaints were specific to Sejuani, Zac, and Maokai. THREE champions - that could easily be entirely banned out. Even if you include Skarner and Sion, it's still only 5 champions that a single team could entirely ban out. And when they were in games, they weren't single-handedly winning them. They were giving their team a solid advantage, but their carries still had to, well, carry. The ONLY time top lane was balanced was when tanks were strongest. They could still be beaten in lane by bruisers, and there were avenues for non-tank champions to win games by winning their lane hard with that advantage. Top lane is going to be imbalanced forever, not because of Iceborn Gauntlet. It's a lane where melee duelists want to belong, but anyone that's not a melee duelist hates that lane anyways. Melee duelists think everything is great when they're the strongest there, but EVERYBODY ELSE hates it - you all just fail to notice because you're happy and don't come to complain at that time. If anything, the problem stems from these melee duelists - champions that are designed to win 1 on 1 even if the person playing them is much worse at the game than their opponent (if their opponent isn't playing a similar champion). Further, for some reason these melee duelists think it's reasonable for their champion to win 1v2s with only a 1 or 2 kill lead and a 1 level advantage. The state where these champions are believed to be "balanced" by their mains often has them so grotesquely overpowered that everyone else hates it. Make tanks great again. That's the answer to top lane. Bruisers can beat tanks in lane, even when tanks are strong. Ranged abuse can beat bruisers, but tanks can survive ranged abusers and provide great gank support while also contributing more to late game fights. It's a fair triangle of power that lets everything be relevant.
When tanks are strong they clog up toplane more than when ranged champions do it. NOTHING counters a tank in lane when they're even slightly meta. It's almost as if giving a champion overblown base damages while allowing it to build pure tank is not a reasonable balance decision. When tanks are remotely strong, they both win lane and are multiple times more useful in teamfights. You dont want an unreliable third or forth damage source in your team during a teamfight that's also melee and blows up instantly, you want a fucking tank. If that tank also wins the lane by simply not allowing his opponent to win it, it's even better. That's what tanks do while meta. They win teamfights while also winning the lane by not allowing their opponent to win it. And assuming that opponent is playing, well, basically anything that's not a fucking tank, they really care about winning the lane. Unsuprisingly, tanks itemization allows them to stale-out the laning phase as long as they want. You can't one-on-one a tank when they're meta before lets say 4 items. You can't outteamfight a tank when they're meta, at any point of the game. >during the tank meta there were FAR FEWER complaints about game balance than I've ever seen.

: There seems to be a unjust bash of communism here. China and the U.S.S.R were/are fascists, abusing a guise of communism to pretend to be for the common working man. It's done by using the state controlled media to influence the public opinion, and hush the disappearance of a potential political threat. I could go on about this but it's late. Not saying communism is a good thing, it's just not a bad thing.
>using the state controlled media to influence the public opinion So, like in communism? >hush the disappearance of a potential political threat. So also like in communism? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
: Holy What The Fuck?
In communism, people at the top tend to not have "Good" ideas but only "Neat" ideas. "Why don't we make a temporary households for our overpopulation using cheap materials? They will be so cheap we could easily replace them" "Wow, what a neat idea, let's just hope people will move to them :) " My home country was under communistic regime for a long time. Focusing country spending on country-made products (as in, not imported from somewhere else) is a very neat idea on paper. And yet, somehow, nobody thought that suddenly straight up cutting all import would leave unprepared economy in ruin, which resulted in empty shelves in shops all over the country. But media told people that everything was fine and government's approval rate was sky-high Guess that's just what communism does to your brain {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

I always thought boards moderators are not getting paid for their work, what's up with this post? jk jk >They are, on the whole, some of the brightest and friendliest people I've met. Irrelevant. >They are, on the whole, incredibly passionate about League and incredibly concerned with whether or not players are enjoying the game. If a person who designs/works on a game (or anything for that matter) is not passionate about his/her project then that project is dead. They borderline have no choice but to be passionate. Mute point. >They, like most people, have feelings. I wanted to write "stopped reading here" or something like that but I'm not that cheeky. Let's just say that I, as a consumer of a product released by a company, am not supposed to be interested in the feelings of the people behind that company. I simply want a good product. It's nice to care about people in general but going overboard with a mindset like that is simply bad for the product we're receiving. People tend to get lazy when you pat their heads too much. >the reactions that we as a community often throw back at them are demoralizing, especially when we accuse them of not caring, or of simply not putting in the effort. >"demoralizing" As they should be. Constructive criticism is nice and welcomed, obviously, but it's not our job to make Riot's work for them. >"accuse them of not caring" Last few patches were worlds patches. Right now they only care about how spicy things are in worlds. Spicier the experience for a watcher translates to more money for Riot. I'm not accusing them or anything, just stating the obvious. Happiness of the general playerbase is majorly sidetracked in this time of the year. >"or of simply not putting in the effort" Last patch with visible effort and idea behind it was crit rework patch. Almost everything after that is just staling. >It drives a wedge between the boards and Rioters, and makes getting our feedback an upsetting experience rather than a productive one. Boards' feedback hardly matters but that's just a side-note. If they did better job they wouldn't have to deal with the fact that "getting our feedback" is an upsetting experience. >I'm simply asking that, when you offer critique or criticism -- or when you vent your frustration -- that you consider the people behind the product A client shouldn't have to do so. >These occurrences aren’t a time to attack them or accuse them of simply not putting in the effort or accuse them of money-grabbing -- it's a time to ask questions, to try to see what they might have seen that caused them to make those decisions, and to voice our thoughts through respectful discourse. Or, we could just skip pointless discussion involving us getting copy-paste responses from Riot (assuming they would even lower themselves to a level of silly unimportant customers to converse with us) and just say outright that the direction they're taking the game is shit. It's faster. I would quote some more but it would just be me repeating same things. So, here are some bullet points. 1: I shouldnt have a single reason to care or even think about "feelings" of people behind the product Im consuming. 2: Riot's focus on money instead of the quality of their product is obvious and (while reasonable from the point of view of the company) unsustainable in the long run. and 3: Community and Riot don't engage in meaningful discussions because Community understandably feels that Riot only cares about money (look point 2) https://my.mixtape.moe/pgbmhg.jpg

: Im hardstuck g5/4 and I don't know why.
You don't "climb" in gold. You force yourself through it. Playing a main you love is a silly meme that doesnt work in mid elos like gold. Even as a diamond player I'm forced to power myself through gold and plat with "hidden op" picks. This mostly means im spamming top quinn untill im in D5. It worked last season and so did in current one. Since D5 is an elo im comfortable with staying in, only then i start to play champions i "main". In general, if you really want to climb just find something that can snowball out of control easily and early, like my Quinn for example, that's also not completely garbage in the current meta. In toplane with the current state of things id just go with Garen or something like that. Simple and dominates in lane when played somewhat smartly. Just ban teemo.

: There's nothing lewd about picture #2 though, unless we're just going to say that exposing shoulder / wearing a strapless top is automatically lewd on _any_ level. In that case there are a hell of a lot of women being lewd when they get dressed up for their company holiday parties, date night at a classy restaurant, etc. just because they wear a strapless dress, even if it otherwise goes all the way down to their ankles. As for what would get you a questionable look, you're safe right up to and even including #5, depending on individual pictures. That picture in particular has floated around GD many times without issue, though I'm sure at some point there has been mod discussion about whether it should be removed. IIRC they settled on a vague rule about whether or not a picture was simply posted to be sexualized, or posted to be appreciated as art. Of course that's a pointless rule since it's not all that actionable in and of itself, as long as you don't stupidly go and leave a post with "hehe xD hawt titties mang." Basically think about it like this - is it on par with any of Riot's splash arts? If so, safe. That includes the pool party bikinis, anything Taric, and anything Eve (who btw is like 80%+ exposed skin and sexualization by default). Worse than Riot splash arts? Ehh, maybe safe maybe not. Edit: Mod got to the Eve point while I was typing. Point made. Edit2: Fixed
