: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 28
imho the Leblanc nerf should be aimed against her w+R combo. Doesn't seem fair that she can kill someone from double w range and point blank chain. I am ok with her Q range combo having burst.
: I just got a 15 day ban from playing Maokai support!!! Riot I didn't even take smite!
AD Yuumi (NA)
: > Why are knock-ups used instead of stuns when they are (and technically vice-versa)? A good question!!!! Here's some of the design reasons we use knockups vs. stuns. 1. Thematic Sometimes a knockup/knockback just **feels** correct thematically and it would betray player expectations to not make it so. Displacements are the easiest examples here (Lee Sin R) , but also things like Vi ult (where she literally uppercuts you into the air). In these cases using a stun (where the target didn't move) would likely feel WRONG. Imagine hitting someone with a giant water geyser and NOT seeing them move. 2. Guaranteed Power Knockups give us a strong design tool. They are CC with essentially no "counterplay" as they cannot be reduced or cleansed. If you NEED an effect to "just work" and screw over THAT CHAMP for X seconds NO MATTER WHAT then a knockup is for you. Malphite ult is a great example of this principal. Unstoppable Force is intended to be an incredibly powerful and fight altering ability. The knockup helps it achieve that, even when the enemy is running things like cleanse and QSS. 3. Satisfaction Sometimes we just want a spell to feel good. Knockups feel better than stuns because the impact is more visceral (you move the target OMG). Things that look flashier often feel better to hit. 4. Mobility Counters (EDIT:forgot to put this in original post) Because they stop dashes, knockups are a great way to give your champion a counter to an opponent's mobility tools (Volibear Roar). My personal opinion is that reasons 1 and 2 are GOOD REASONS for using knockups, while reason 3 is fine but DANGEROUS. I call 3 dangerous because in the search of "good feels" we can often forget about the importance of cleanses and tenacity in our game. Doing it every once in a while is fine, but if it becomes a trend where most spells have "knockups for the feels" the whole stun/tenacity/knockup/cleanse system can start to break down. I'd be lying to say that League hasn't experienced a good deal of "knockup" creep over the years. In regards to stun satisfaction, there are ways to have our cake and eat it too. Knockups that fade into longer stuns are one way (did you know that Nautilus R is reducible by tenacity? The knockup only lasts .5 seconds, the majority of the CC is actually a stun!). Another way is the Thresh and Nami Q approach. Both of those spells are stuns! They just "look" like knockups, but can be reduced and cleansed like normal. The cost of that approach is clarity. They work for Yasuo R but can also be Gangplank W'd? A tad confusing, but probably worth it in the long run to get the desired counterplay.
Nami's Q was the only thing I knew wasn't a knockup. Been playing since season 1. I mean, i need to know that tenacity reduces these stuff to buy it right? In other words I see no point in counterplay if I'm not aware that it makes sense to get it.

Hello Riotu-sama, can you consider allowing Poppy to play ap (and ad) again?

Not sure what your point is... unless your stating they should make a ranked ARAM. Which I'm down for.
: I hate that when I play a non popular champion I can't win because people just play what's meta
Off-meta works fine, you just need to know the champ you're playing. btw this game looks like horribly low elo.
: ryze changes that Riot didnt want you to see
*Uses R, gets 2 kills, gets level up and uses it on ultimate* {{champion:13}} I'm not sure if I should feel good or bad about this.
: The main issue with riot's cowseps response...
LoL, this STILL seems retaliatory. Like they check everyone else's account for toxicity after they make a random public statement.
: Wish he would quit. I love his videos because he has such a good ghost editor. His gameplay hurts me though. He hoards all the gold, kill steals, throws his teammates lives away for cool stuff, refuses to end.. I get he has to make content but a very selfish playstyle.

I get he has to make content but a very selfish playstyle. What? His editor is terrible. Straight up ruined Gosu's channel.
: I'm speaking from the perspective of someone that is not very good at last hitting; Help. {{item:2403}}
I'd be happy if I were you. Since cannon minions are only 1 you can afford to waste spells on them to guarantee a last hit. Also their resistances weren't raised.
Sparkle (NA)
: So here's an honest to goodness question for my own curiosity - ideally, what do you want to actually figure out from death recap? What to buy next (Armor/MR/Lifesteal whatever)? If someone did more damage than the person that killed you? What ability was used on you? Something else? Like, assuming you know who got the takedown (from the scoreboard), what would you specifically be looking for out of death recap (in an ideal bug free fantasy world)? EDIT: Thank you to all the folks responding, really interesting to read through your thoughts & wants. <3 EDIT 2: Guys, I play other games. I know that other games have death recap features. I'm asking about what YOU want personally and specifically, not for examples of other death recaps. :)

: Illaoi is AD to make the statement her god is real and not something summoned by magic, but of its own accord
Wait a sec. What if Illaoi's God is all a fake? She could really just be a fake using magic. Maybe she is carrying a magical relic and she isn't even aware of it. It could summon the attacks of a void monster. That could explain the psychical aspect of the attacks.

Sigil of silence release Leblanc was fair and balanced. If you think otherwise you are an amateur and a fool, and fucking deserve to get good grades and you always do.
: Actually they're right. It's subtle, but it's because elevation.
Aram has no elevation as far as I know.
: The lux ult is a problem due to the lowered ground in the river. Casting skillshots from the river up to the rest of the battlefield or vice versa will cause the visuals to appear slightly differently from where they are actually hitting. And the Vi one is just because stuff goes through once it's started.
Nope, Lux's ult is just weird. If you play enough ARAM you must have noticed. One of the ult's side, I think the one on lux's left hand is smaller.
: Checking this in now. Keep your eyes on the next pbe!

: How to make aram better: * Revert 7.8 minion changes * disable Triumph and Dark Harvest from aram * Give melee champions a minion execute passive 3 charges , 30 sec cooldown on Guardian&#039;s Horn.

We can talk about the first two but where does the third come from?
Arammus (EUW)
: in over 1500 aram games... today i saw the 5th s- ever.
The annoying thing is that the fix to that seems so easy; just lower or remove the weight CS has in the grade formula. In case you guys haven't noticed in your ARAMs, that's the main factor in getting an S class grade.
: What Galizien said, but also some people *do* make aram accounts. And they only buy champs that are good for ARAM on those accounts. So that's a significant contributor, I would imagine.

RRRRRRRIGHT THROUGH THE COUNTER STRIKE, OH i fucking love it, its like having fun except go fucking kill yourself riot just go fucking kill yourself, god damn it dude, it's not even fun to play this shit, i see her coming towards me, i counter strike before she even fucking q's and then IT GOES THROUGH, like i joke about this but its fucking pathetic this company it's pathetic, GOD DAMN IT DUDE

Latent X (NA)
: Xin Zhao AMAZING new splash art
Elohaven (NA)
: "We're basing our next champion on Vayne" -- Riot
Is noone going to mention that the main splash art is also similar?
: how about E then? xD, i'm pretty sure that's a missile
No idea about that one. It's either a bug or some weird camera angle + teemo hitbox. Since you were able to hit it from both corners, I'll go with the first case.
: 1. I don't get it. If you're in the middle of a circumference there's a maximum range you can reach. Since "most abilities have a missile shape" you should reach it by pointing it directly at the enemy, but for some reason in here you have more range if you attack sideways 2. I'm pretty sure i jumped on caitlyn a few times while she rooted me. She couldn't run away because i continuously dash w-ed her.
Yes, unlike most abiltiies Illaoi's Q doesn't have a missile shape, it's a rectangle. If you consider a rectangle to be 2 (hopefully google translate is right here) right triangles, you can see that c>b http://ltcconline.net/greenl/courses/CAHSEE/Geometry/pythagThmThm.gif
: Illaoi's 50+ bugs (updated list)
> The range by pointing with the corners of the tip is bigger than attacking with the tip, don't understand why. video, may be a dummy/general game problem. That's just the Pythagorean theorem, and probably the reason most skillshots have that missile shape? > Illaoi can still dash w even if she's rooted . (i know you can still use abilities during a root, but you shouldn't be able to move) You're wrong here, she can only attack with W if the enemy is in normal autoattack range.

> near infinite How the fuck can you have anything near infinity this is incorrect by definition.
: How is aram fun? 9/10 games is one sided to the point as soon as you see the loading screen you know who wins. The 10th one is where the game is evenly match with multiple aces constantly.
But please, if you are a person who gets so tilted from teamcomps that you say "open" in the first 3 minutes, don't play ARAM.
