Why are you doing this? Why are you okay with all of this? You do realize "strats" like this will guarantee that there will never be an int-detecting system? And tell me one sane person saying that he genuinely enjoys this.

Thoughts on Sivir, moreso on her kit and gameplay rather than current state in the meta?

Hey Meddler, I'm gonna ask about {{champion:15}} . Are you planning to make her gameplay more appealing? She's a pretty interesting character to me and her bandit theme is pretty resonating in her voicelines, yet it's lacking in her kit.

I'm gonna ask again about {{champion:15}} since she was on the bottom of the list you provided last time, just above Nunu. Are you planning to make her gameplay more appealing? She's a pretty interesting character to me and her bandit theme is pretty resonating in her voicelines, yet it's lacking in her kit.

Thoughts on {{champion:15}} ? More on kit-wise rather than current state. Her being on the lower end of the list is kind of heartbreaking to me, as she has a resonating character for me.

: We were hoping to make TK less dominant in pro without affecting his regular play power too much. Haven't had a chance yet to see pro play on them, so that bit's still up in the air. Regular play seems to be in an ok spot, though top lane performance is something we're a little suspicious of, possible we put too much power there. No current plans for followup changes, possible he's a 8.18 candidate though. Zoe - that is an experimental list that's been tested, it's not complete nor something we're planning to ship as is though. Shouldn't have been posted this early, needed more validation and then iteration. Changes won't be part of 8.17.

Shouldn't have been posted this early, needed more validation and then iteration. Changes won't be part of 8.17. Can you please not ditch Zoe's trap? I feel like you would waste a lot of beautiful artistic work by doing that and would feel like a scam for those who bought any of her skins, as it played a huge part of what makes her particles appealing. I'd rather focus on her main problem, which is her W. Here are some suggestions: > Give it a meaningful cooldown between casts (around 5-7 seconds?) So Zoe players will have to be more careful on which spell to use and when > Make Zoe's own summoner spells unable to activate the three orbs and the movement speed boost > Make her ability to activate a minion-dropped spell shard REALLY low (2-ish seconds) so she can't hold onto her spell shard until she feels like using it It would be disheartening for her iconic projectile > trap transformation to be thrown out just like that, when the frustration it causes is nothing compared to W. Or you can lower the trap duration. Either way, please, try to keep it.

Any other immediate plans on lowering damage overall?
: My guess is that Spellshields are coded to block the spell EFFECT rather than the spell HIT, and those abilities trigger off a spell hit. I'm guessing this is a side effect of how Riot organizes their code and when they call which functions, because in order to prevent this you'd need a structure like this:

If it was I would have noticed. I think it's this preseason that broke the way spellshields work.

: The reason she is currently only a VU is that August just started working on her. We are not currently committing to gameplay changes for Morgana unless he finds something that is a clear upgrade to either her passive or W. Until that happens she will remain a VU, but if we do find changes we likes for either of those abilities she will be upgraded to a VMGU.

Until that happens she will remain a VU, but if we do find changes we likes for either of those abilities she will be upgraded to a VMGU. T B Skyen actually made an interesting point in his roadmap analysis video: he considered that Morgana could be more related to earth (as opposed to the angelic Kayle), and Tormented Soil would make a link between her and the element. Her color scheme could be brown as well but that's for you guys to decide.
: ??WTF Riot ?? Yasuo changes
You know, I'd be surprised to see the smallest buff to Yasuo right now, being successful in both casual and competitive play. But no. It's a one whole fucking percent AD Ratio buff. Can I have that on Poppy's ult instead? You know, so an ultimate you actually have to hit, charge, time and has a cooldown does a fair amount of damage.

: (ik you said champion as in singular but I'mma do two cuz I got two favorite champs) {{champion:119}} - Would fix his hair occasionally in between auto-attacks - Idle animation where he'd admire himself in a popup mirror. - Upon recall, two beautiful Noxian women would appear in Draven's arms, to which shows off his muscles, pushes them away and then kisses a mirror instead. - Larger library of humorous, narcissistic voice lines. - Nicer clothes, cause let's be real he's probably boujee. No rat-tail 'stache, decent beard. Straighter/nicer teeth. - Would taunt every champion by saying they'd look better if they were a mirror. - Would taunt Jhin by saying he can't perfect perfection. - Interactions with Darius, probably about how Darius is ugly. {{champion:76}} - Updated in-game model to match how damn gorgeous her splash is (and not look orange) - Quotes of confusion upon purchasing items that are advanced technology wise. - Idle animation while in the river in cougar form would include playing in the water, and human form would be Nidalee trying to clean herself up. - Approaching jungle monsters would trigger a growl from Nidalee in both human and cougar form. - Make a joke about hunting Azir. - Make a joke about hunting Fizz. - Would mention it's the prime of mating season around very attractive male champions. - Would stutter explaining how it is definitely and absolutely NOT mating season around people like Gragas, Urgot, etc. - Would probably make a vegan joke towards Zyra. - Idk about lore interactions cause her lore is doodoo atm. (I could fix that btw just saying)
>Idle animation while in the river in cougar form would include playing in the water, and human form would be Nidalee trying to clean herself up. I really hope we'll have this in the future, holyyyyy
: We're explicitly not exploring damage at this point unless you count reducing some cds (cast spells more, deal more damage over time). The current direction is giving them defensive properties unique to the champion - but we'll see what we're able to land.
> reducing some cds A-are you guys sure you want to do that? CDR seems to be EVERYWHERE in the game right now and it's hard to think of a build which doesn't include that stat.

: What happened to League after season 5
Lmao is 6 even a problem? The rest of the points are fine although unclear and repetitive and as non-constructive as everything else on this website.
: The Memote contest was A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!
I disagree with the Bard one not being expressive and that Bard and Poppy "being easy to draw". That's biased as fuck. Agree with everything else.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: July 27
Regarding Electrocute - Why don't we go with 3 different DAMAGE sources rather than the current iteration? The fact that you don't even need three different damage sources doesn't really make it significantly approachable for more champions than the former Thunderlords users, while making some cases like a Zed instaproccing it with R-E-AA not so exciting to deal with. Or if that's not enough you could make it require four different attacks rather than three. P.S. I'm really glad you acknowledge the prominence of damage right now, as I see this topic being thrown around Boards, Reddit and even pros.
: Teleport Fix Idea: Nerf the Pro-Plays, Increase the Fun
I'm sorry but I'll have to disagree. Besides the fact that this will encourage boring, get-to-lane-faster usage further, the idea of a rune that's SO niche is absolutely terrible. Hextech Flashtraption exists because in 9/10 games every player will have Flash as one of their summoner spells.

Palaven (NA)
: The biggest weakness Nasus has is that he is easily kited in teamfights. This isn't changing.
Yeah but it's gonna get from his biggest weakness to his only weakness... Nasus only had to benefit from all the direct and indirect buffs that made his laning phase not the risk he was supposed to take and now it's going to be even worse.
Meddler (NA)
: We're looking at a few different directions on Nasus. I think the one likely to ship is a buff to his passive Lifesteal early game, help him get through laning phase a bit better.
Uhh doesn't that leave him with even fewer weaknesses?
: Update on Updated Spellblade VFX!
Just wondering, but why is that Trinity and Sheen have the same VFX? Couldn't {{item:3078}} have a yellowish shade on the VFX to differentiate better between those two?

: PBE Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.13
I'm trying to stay as rational as possible... but how does one deal with Singed? He is legitimately the most frustrating champion to deal with. I feel like a decent Singed can just skip laning phase like that. Proxy farming is a very toxic technique in my opinion: he doesn't have to worry about CSing properly, trading, and doesn't care about wave management. Enjoy 1v0.

: Poppy to her Core was never meant to be a Tank even before her rework she was a fighter/diver. The Rework took that away from Poppy and made her a mainstream tank, Riot thinks that giving her damage again will solve the issue by shifting her more into a Fighter/Diver.
That's only because you don't believe hard enough in Duskblade Poppy

: I am so disappointed in how Riot handled Clash
I missed my wedding just to play Clash.
: Arcane Blade instead of Nimbus Cloak
That's such a bad idea. The point of Runes Reforged is to make pre-game decisions more fun and interactive. Even when you take the simplest current rune you ask yourself "ok, I took x. What do I do with it or how can I maximize its potential?". Literally a CS helper usable **ONLY** by mages doesn't deserve to be a rune. And don't give me the wOw nUlLiFyinG oRπŸ…± exISTs riP MaGES πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ because there's so much more in the game that deals magic damage besides mages. And Nullifying Orb can be taken on anyone, not just your very hated assassins. Edit: Oh and it can't be a Sorcery rune because Sorcery's desciption says "Empowered abilites and resource manipulation" which doesn't imply "do more dmg on autoattacks". That's for Precision.
: "Mages should run out of mana if they cast constantly in long fights"
So if a class is unfair to deal with so should all the other classes be?
: Although it sounds nice, I think it will just widen the (already way too big) gap between pro and casual play for Ashe.
While also making many assassins even more competitively unrealistic
