: im despreatly trying to belive they will fix it.. but when i see shit like. "we are trying to bring non-adc down bot" instead of fixing the actual issue.. i kinda lose hope in that. like there is zero chance in hell any other class can go bot because adc are the most broken class in the game. no one would ever give that up unless adc are not only nerfed, but nerfed MORE than they need to be. which is COMPLETELY impossible. because even in early 2017 when adc were nerfed properly, instead of making it so the other classes got nerfs too so we would have balanced game... they psychotically and drastically overbuffed ADC's to the absurd. so yeah as much as i WANT to believe riot... they dont have the best track record. and yeah seeing mage nerfs, who are without a doubt the weakest and least impactful class in the game right now. is downright pathetic. especially when at the same time the own baby {{champion:13}} who never even had mana issues to begin with and is absurdly good at stacking {{item:3070}} and who has ALWAYS had a core of {{item:3003}} . gets "free mana". its ludicrous. and if riot is actually SURPRISED at how we react.. then it just shows how completely out of touch with their game they actually are.
why are people still mentioning "we are trying to bring adcs to bot" Riot talked about that 1 year ago and never commited,ziggs was the only none- adc champion to replace marksmen in the botlane because he could get a fast turret first blood with his W,even he doesnt see much play any more.Even the riot employee on the thread about the mana nerfs when asked about ziggs said that they do not like that he goes bot. Lets be honest,all these changes are for the LCS and skin sales not the community.

: Glad you enjoyed Japan! I'd like to go back someday for vacation. On the topic of allowing players to take champions into other lanes; Don't glare too hard at me when I bring this up, but what about taking champions created *specifically* to be solely duo lane Supports into a solo one? I don't expect or want this, but I'm curious what you feel about it!
for some time some players were playing kayle top-yi jungle also known as the "korean boosting strategy" its the closest thing we got to a lane's sole purpose being to support an ally.The strategy was heavily dependent on {{item:3504}} so its no wonder it eclipsed after the nerfs.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: April 20
About the new Ryze rework on the pbe,will it be aimed towards making Ryze a champion available to all players or will he remain a champion balanced around the LCS exclusively?
Anatera (NA)
: Just because they're focused on it doesn't mean they're doing it right. They can be entirely focused on it, have the wrong mindset and fuck it up anyway, leading to pro players not liking it either. If you cater to someone, they are not obligated to like what you do just because you cater to them.
So many balance changes last year,Ryze getting nerfed to 37% winrate and for what? to get to see that clown fiesta crap with jannas lulus and galios spamming shields on an ADC every single game,quality content.Botlane ran over everyone last season,botlane will run over everyone this season but with a different keystone mastery.

: What's up with the anti-fact players recently?
sometimes what people consider facts are just a misinterpretation of data: Ex. Guy 1: X champions is weak right now look at these stats,low winrate on silver gold plat diamond even challenger. Guy 2:yeah but the 4 best players with this champion have a 65% winrate in diamond 1 with him which means u should get gud. Guy 3: well you can't really make an assumption from such a small po... Guy 4:YOU don't accept the facts and you put your emotions over facts stay silver scrub. this is 90% of discussions with facts on the boards.

: Just first time something or play off meta. They aren't breaking the rules by banning ur champ and you aren't either by playing ap miss fortune top lane :)
the only way to get banned for trolling is to straight up run it down mid 40 times in a row to begin with.
: I have to agree Tyler1's statement.
Better nerf ryze for faker a champion in the top 40 most popular champions in league. Better release a bruiser keystone 4 months inside the new season.

because women who put their name in videogames usually ask for that kind of attention,she could always just change her name.
: Why do we lose LP if someone on our team was afk almost the entire game?
because pro players could abuse it in ranked to get to challenger would be the most appropriate answer.

And this is coming from a Silver (unranked atm) player. I don't want it to be too easy for me, that defeats the challenge of a climb. It's not the champion that needs buffed, it's me that needs to learn to be better at the game or champion. This. You can't balance around the tiers of people that don't even understand what balance is. These are people who ban Master Yi and Tryndamere every game. It's like bronze and silver players have some uniform idea of what balance is, either.
these balance changes are irrelevant to the game itself,they are not even for bronze -silver-gold-plat-diamon-masters-challenger players they are specifically for professional teams in the lcs,we are not talking about a 20% we are talking about a 0.0000001% even if you include every single viewer it still won't even be close to 0.1% of the community. Its not about learning the game to begin with most of the time,these people are a 5 man premade on voice communications that swap lanes at 8 minutes and stopped enjoying playing this game half a decade ago. It has nothing to do with you "learning the game" if anything you are playing the game closer to the way it should be played than this people,first blood is not meant to be given at 8 minutes and losing your flash is not supposed to mean a death sentence by gank 3 minutes later.

this was a public stunt by riot to get to the newspapers and remind people that this game exists.
Verxint (NA)
: I liked the idea of them balancing around LCS at first because I thought it would mean LCS would get more interesting Instead solo queue just gets worse and LCS is still the same 12 champions every game.
//in the LCS patch// we have noticed that janna is feeling kinda weak so we are pulling unnerfed ardent from retirement for one last job.
: until they remove his point and click root and mana tank identity i dont mind any nerfs to this champ tbh
0.75 second root too stronk the mana+tank identity of ryze died years ago,you can't play ryze with items like frozen heart anymore you just play full ap and get an extra push from mana.
: Except League is different from a card game. "Banning every champion that's OP at high tier, even if only okay at low tier" is not a viable option. Riot doesn't tend to *buff* around pro-play, except with buffs that should only affect pro play.
high tier and pro play are different,most of those champions are not a problem not even in high diamond and challenger just the 50 games of LCS.

: I really dont give a damn about LCS balance
When Ben Brode from blizzard was asked why he wouldn't nerf a deck that was overwhelming and blacklisted in tournaments in an upcomming nerf patch ben answered that blizzard would never make changes for 1% of the community as that is their company policy and common sense.The common sense Riot's balance team lacks.
Bern (NA)
: I mean.... "Ryze has a win rate 46.35% for Platinum+ players whilst the very best Ryze's are earning a win rate of 57.36% with the average rank of these top players being in Diamond I. " If that kind of winrate delta doesn't signal that there's something extremely jank going on, I don't know what does.
those very best ryze mains at diamond 1 are too few to make a legitimate assumption,yes faker could be a teemo main and have a 60% winrate with teemo maybe 10 more pros did the same that does not mean that teemo is overpowered,some players are just pros and could take any champion to 60% winrate.
Danjeng (NA)
: That's my point. Ryze is still getting picked when he at 38% win rate. If he was at 50% he'd be busted beyond belief. They'd be first picking Ryze every game. Also, Ryze is pretty good now with new Seraph's and Lost Chapter items. I see where you're coming from but he deserves nerfs more than buffs. 60 mana E at level 1 is going to hit hard though. They already nerfed his E cooldown, spread damage, and EQ amp damage, all by significant amounts already. I really hope they would reconsider a compromise between current PBE values and live values. The true struggle of a Ryze main. We don't even ask for buffs like certain other whiny "my main's winrate is only 49%, unplayable". No we ask for nerfs to come quickly and without pain. Ya got to endure it. Endure it for the blu boi. Every night I used to check PBE for the nerfs to come, but I no longer do so as they come and pass like the years of my life. But haahaha I'm sure they know what they're doing XD hahahh I'm so happy :D Sincerely, A ~~please help me~~ completely fine and happy Ryze main
people will always pick ryze for multiple reasons one of which being the fact that everybody owns him and his ability to clear but in no way should you consider playrate as a measure of strength for a champion thats just ridiculous.
: They've said that for champions that are game warping in pro play (So your Azir's and Ryze's and the like), they will hold less consideration for lower skill levels. As for Censor: the patch that World's get's played on gets locked in almost a month in advance. There were nerfs for Ardent almost immediately after the patch lock in.

There were nerfs for Ardent almost immediately after the patch lock in. these posts have been made multiple times by the community,whether you like it or not riot gutted ryze and other lcs exclusive champions last year at some point the champion was at 38% winrate only to give us a garbage tier balance in the lcs.Failure in all aspects,riot is nerfing champions for the lcs only to deliver a bad balance product in the lcs.There are a lot of things riot can do to make pro play more intresting nerfing ryze reksai azir and nidalee is not one of them and even if it wereone of them right nowit would be on thelast page of the book about the necesairy changes.
Bern (NA)
: Ryze's winrate on people good at ryze is still extremely good. Like, disgustingly good. His win deltas between skilled and unskilled play are insane. He has a high learning curve and more effectiveness the more coordinated your team is (and the more you know how to tell your team to use your ult, in the case of solo queue). He's a problem just because of that learning curve and effectiveness curve. Standard line is that balancing him to be good at low elos with his current kit would bust him, and it's the standard line because it's a fact.
its not about the learning curve these nerfs are not even aimed at plat and diamond ryze mains they are specifically for lcs players we just take the collateral damage.
Danjeng (NA)
: Every spring Ryze will be nerfed consecutively despite having a ~45% winrate. It's inevitable, and it's pointless arguing against it. He's still pick/ban and will remain so until the final nerf hit so hard he'll no longer be a contested pick. Then in the summer, Ryze will receive changes that will make him somewhat playable, leading him to be picked by pros once more, so continues the cycle.
did ryze reaching 38% winrate last year contribute to anything in the lcs last year? did those nerfs actually make the lcs more fun to watch with ardent and janna in every game?
: He's 45% winrate because he's pretty tough to do well with, and people play him without knowing how, then feed.
no,that is not why.Ryze is at a low winrate because his ultimate is better used when you are on voice comms and well coordinated with your team,not because other players do not know how to play ryze and feed with him. you cant use your ultimate to initiate with your team as ryze when everyone is a solo player.

aaand now my post is -1,another post dies,i am sorry to say that these boards are killing this game
: Just play a champion with super anti siege ability. And hold off the 1v5 forever.
you will eventually get dived by a doublebuff 2 level ahead jungler despite the fact that you are 0/0/0 and he has no kills and he will cut through you like a hot knife through butter and walk away from your tower with 70% hp.Which is why people do not bother defending lane,if they lose lane they just open it.
Rioter Comments
: From Frostbutt to Furblade. What the hell did you do to this skin.
: As a jungler and support, its an ADC "meta"
actually junglers are overtuned right now,playing top is pretty much being a jungle camp for the enemy jungler or making the enemy a jungle camp for your jungler,which is part of the reason a lot of top main abandoned the role. I know that your post will get upvoted a lot beacause the boards are biased,Talk about supports and assasins being weak and the upvotes will come by the hundreds,even when janna was the most broken thing in the game the first post on the hotpage was to nerf tristana.
: Riot, why did you continue to promote power creep toplane ?
Well one day riot decided to remove fervor of battle from the game,a keystone mastery a lot of toplaners relied to to be viable in the game,the problem is that riot treats champions like fiora and yasuo as their firstborn child and every time they reach 49% winrate they buff them back up.It's not that fiora is stronger than she used to be other toplaners are just much weaker than they used to be would be my answer.
