: Jax found a real weapon! [HUGE EXPLOIT]
So that basically confirms the theory that the actual Aatrox is the blade?
: Fits his obnoxious personality I suppose
"The Quickness" doesn't reflect anything about personality. It's just a bad name that you can give literally every haste in the game.
: Xayah And Rakan
One thing I especially like about them are the ultimates. I feel like a lot of people are going to strongly disagree with me, but I think that aside from Aurelion Sol they're the best ults that came out in the last 2 years. Nothing overly complicated, no annoying semi-global mobility spell that feels tacked on and doesn't fit the kit at all (hi Tahm/Ryze), just something that makes them win a fight. Rakan's ult is just awesome for an enchanter and really fits his theme. Xayah's ult on the other hand is probably what I would consider one of the best designed ults in the game. It's a clear but not execute-y burst of damage, enhances her combo via E synergy (allowing for a potential AoE root) and gives her a huge way of outplaying the enemy, provided you really know what you're doing. It's the perfect ult to casually weave into her kiting pattern whenever you really need to kill people, not something where you have to wait for the perfect situation or a 5-man teamfight. Also I'm really excited to see pros abusing the untargetability to the fullest.

: Define feel of live spell. In my experience, people have different views on feels.
To be honest I wouldn't trust Beluga much when it comes to that. Apparently VK's Q *feels* like a spammable last-hit ability and his R *feels* like the ultimate frontline shredder...

Vhan8765 (NA)
: Darius I always at least could understand where the salt comes from, that dunky bastard has ruined a day for all of us at least once before. But I never understood all the rage and complain towards Illaoi. Her Q is easy to dodge, her W is only most efficient if tentacles are near by, and not only is her E easy to dodge but since it got massacred however long back now, walking out of the damage area and just killing the whole 2, 3 tentacles that spawn is literally as brain dead to do as it sounds. The most annoying part of Illaoi is her ult, in which case, like however many other League of Legends champions, **don't fight inside her ult.** If Illaoi is the tentacle champion, just take away her tentacles at all times; bam, problem solved.
Exactly. Don't fight her when she wants you to fight you. It's common sense, same as the Darius who has 3 stacks on you or the Mordekaiser who's about to do his 3rd hit.
: Annie Nerf
>Why does her q do so much damage on such a low cooldown. Just like Ekko, Zed and a lot of other stuff you play. You should never look at one part of someone's kit without looking at the rest. She basically has no E and her W is only good for situational waveclear and an extra stack, her Q is the only real damage ability she has. >Why does she get passive cc, if you are gonna give that to her, make it ever 6 abilities she gets it. It is ridiculous how she gets the cc every 4 abilities, she gets it too fast. Actually she gets it every 5 abilities. And it's the only CC she has. >Also, lower the stun duration on it as well because it lasts too long. You get stunned, and you are basically dead unless you are a tank because of her ridiculous damage and broken kit. If you "get stunned and you are basically dead", you need to learn good positioning. Stay behind your tanks and Annie won't ever reach you. If she tries to dive you she gets CC'd by the tank. Make sure she never gets in range by staying behind teammates that can peel her. She has a lot of upfront burst, but once her R is gone she can't do much, similar to Veigar. > Please nerf her q, w, and passive. Thanks! Her W is even more extreme than the ult. If you're not the frontline tank and get hit by her W, you're doing something fundamentally wrong. I repeat: stay behind your tanks and she won't reach you with anything.

: play normal draft and ban him
Normal Draft is awesome for that. If your teammate hovers Yasuo, just ban him. If no one hovers Yasuo, no need to ban him because if the enemy picks Yasuo you've basically won.
: if youre going into blind pick you always go for a counterpick which trumps all the popular picks and win by default tired of seeing yasuo? start picking malzahar and bend him over.
Oh hell please no. I don't want to face Malzahar, I'd rather face a Yasuo because he will most likely feed.
Rioter Comments
: Um was there a typo? "New: "Turret First Blood" gold: +275 local, +25 global (400 total gold across the team)" it says 400 total gold but that is actually total of 300 so is there a typo and it be +**3**75 local or is it suppose to be **3**00 total?
Not sure if troll.
: having experience with old ryze doesn't really make it easy to play new ryze, since their combos are very different.
: Why can't we ever have a champion that rewards skill over button mash bull shyt like Ryze? Azir is hard to master, it should come with a little bit of bonus power or else he's just hard for no reason.
I'm an Azir main and his midgame was way too strong last patch. Mechanical difficulty is nice and stuff, but it doesn't warrant Azir being one of two decent midlaners in the entire game. He still is stronger than average, but last patch was overkill. **A mechanically well-played Azir should NOT be able to stomp his enemy in lane, midgame and late 5v5 fights without the other skills - such as game knowledge - that you need to carry on your average difficulty champion.** Don't forget that mechanical skill is not the only thing you need to win, or else you woulda carried yourself out of Plat 5 with your Draven and Vayne for a long, long time. Even "brain-dead" champions like Ryze require decision making, map awareness and some good experience about your damage. There are less than 10 champs in the game that don't even require those (Malzahar comes to mind).

: I actually found it exciting and not aurally cluttered at all. I even felt like it gave _more_ clarity to some degree, as I quickly learned what champions said what lines and, just like the picture/name, learned to associate those lines with their respective champions. "_Time to troll!_" Oh hey. It's Trundle. "_Tactical decision, Summoner._" So I'm facing Lux. "_Shurima! Your emperor has returned!_" DAMMIT! THEY TOOK MY MAIN!

No. As someone who actually climbed to gold 2 in pre-season 6 from silver 1, this is not pre-season at all. Not even close. Games lasted on average 20-23 minutes without surrender in pre-season 6. They fixed that fast. This is a balanced state, admit it or not. Only a couple champions (Vlad, Swain, Illaoi, Fizz, Hecarim, Zyra) are really out of control at the moment.
Lol the downvote brigade is strong here. You're right, only Vlad and Hecarim are a bit broken atm. The game has never been that balanced since I started playing (end of S4).

If we take Annie for instance She is suppose to throw tibbers instead tibbets appears from nowhere with no reaction time or whatever. SHe throws stun at you, you dodge it and she sitll stuns you right afterwards. Nunu sucks alot. Upcoming Ryze update would make him feel a bit better but he still needs rework to be more fun to play. And tons of other thinks that right now don't come I can't remember
Nunu is different from most champions in that he's not mechanically difficult, but requires a lot of strategical thinking. If played correctly, you can secure the enemy jungler's 2nd buff and all dragons.
: this season feels like riot is getting on some wierd mix of weed and coke and every idea they come up with while high is quickly added to the game without anything even being checked
No, actually that was last season. 2015 Riot kept talking about counterplay, balance and diversity, suddenly Tahm Kench / Devourer / Juggernauts / Fiora. This season at least the releases have been harmless. New champions are way more balanced, the mage item system became really great and there was nothing that instantly broke the meta upon being introduced.

: You can cast your ult alone. What they said by "no self-cast" is that you can't cast the ult on yourself since it would make the spell a TP from your location to the same location. Also, you can cast spells while the ult is channeling.
"No self-cast" is actually a hidden reference to the Legendary Ryze Flash, a famous video where a low-level Ryze flashes in place and gets a kill because the enemy took aggro from his creep wave. Realistically, preventing a self-cast would be nonsense for an AoE.

  Rioter Comments
: Any chance of making her W a targeted single-target spell that is a dash and applies on-hits rather than an auto-reset? It's **damn** clunky trying to auto -> W -> animation cancel without cancelling her auto attack sometimes.
> clunky Why do people use "clunky" as an excuse for everything lately? Learning how to properly reset an autoattack has nothing to do with clunkiness. It's a mechanic you have to learn for every champion you play. And imo Illaoi's auto is fairly easy to reset or even orbwalk.
: Is there any source where I can see the situations in which an Illaoi sound clip is played? There was a time where she was the enemy Supp and at random I'd be hearing her chanting shait which sounds rude but half the time I dont't understand whats she's saying (50% accent 50%drowned sound layer) and it's just annoying, she's the whole map away. It makes sense and its "cool" if you're the vessel but otherwise it's just obnoxious. I know i can mute champion voices but I don't wanna mute everyone, just Illaoi
This voice line is her recall. There was a bug for a long time where it was globally audible, but I'm pretty sure it got fixed some patches ago.

Illaoi main from the first minute here. She was completely unplayable before this patch. She was a fucking nuisance but in high elo you could just ignore her and play 5v4. The 6.9 changes gave her more potential for actual damage and less for annoying the enemy by forcing them to run around for a minute.
: The thing is; Viktor, Kennen, Swain, Morde, Skarner, etc. have very small player bases and Riot doesn't have a lot of data on them, not to mention the apparent lack of mains of those champs in Riot's dev team. They're underplayed and Riot has no real idea what they're even supposed to do and what reasons there are for players to actually enjoy playing these characters. Sadly they're out of touch with these champs and do what THEY think is right and the appropriate course of action. They may want to consider talking to those people who ACTUALLY play these champs and get some input why they like these characters and what the appeal of maining them is.
Exactly. With the VK rework Beluga has shown that he has zero understanding of what Vel'Koz actually does. This makes me so sad, I'm honestly considering to just drop VK and become a full-time Azir main.
: It seems you have no idea what you are talking about... -The new Rift herald is an excellent objective that not only balanced the objective pressure equally on both halves of the map, but also is a very nice and unique way of applying map pressure top. More diverse and intense action in the whole map not just bot and drag pit. -The new Rageblade is definitely healthier that the old one, it's not as effective when rushed and doesn't provide the massive powerspike that it once did. Might need adjustments though for ranged champion ( kogmaw, kayle , vayne) -The removal of devourer was the best thing to happen in league in the past 2 years; The new bloodrazor is an excellent lategame item that suits the champions it is intended for very well. -Towers don't melt anymore, and they are not the only objectives worth fighting for. The new Dragons ensure there is action in the game at all stages of the game. -Overall most mage updates were excellent, except some overtuned ones.(malzahar) -Brand finally got what he needed all this time : a healthier stun, better cool-downs, less right out flat burst , but higher explosive damage in teamfights through the power of his combos involving his passive and a more reliable Ultimate. -Mana see,s to be a problem indeed, I agree with you here, new items don't seem to accomplish something that the old ones did not. if anything they don't do stuff the old items did.
>-Mana see,s to be a problem indeed, I agree with you here, new items don't seem to accomplish something that the old ones did not. if anything they don't do stuff the old items did. I'm pretty sure that's the goal. Remove the feel of "infinite mana" and force mages to play efficiently even in mid-late game. Edit: ty for downvotes, I just repeated what some Rioters said.

Aazzlano (NA)
: I don't think I've ever escaped Leblancs tether without a dash + flash, and even then its usually not enough, where as Karma's is very easy to get out of with just a dash or a flash.
Reason for that is probably that Karma will cast it at max range (675) while LB will often throw the chain at point blank range after hitting you with her W. The other guy probably gets sniped by more max range (950) LB chains, which are quite easy to escape.
: There is one flaw with this. If you do well with your team even if it is your friends you technically belong in high gold/ low plat because you work well with them and that is one thing I personally enjoy about dynamic que its not about killing its about teamwork and objective grabbing.
If they put you into Support and let you play Blitzcrank only while doing the shotcalling, you don't belong in Plat just because you end up there.
Leonerdo (NA)
: People keep making these arguments that just barely miss the problem. You're right that ELO boosting wrecks the competitive nature of the game, and that as-is it is actually quite easy for Diamonds to make a smurf and boost their Bronze friends. But that is not the fault of Dynamic Queue. That was already possible in Duo Queue from before, it was just more limited. Dynamic Queue would be fine if Riot just took a stance against smurfs (or at least boosting via smurfs). And for anyone who thinks "Dynamic Boost" is possible without a smurf, consider this: You can't queue up with anyone who is more than a tier below you (or only 2 divisions in Diamond+), so Plats can only "carry" Golds, and Diamonds are stuck with other Diamonds or high Plats. The only way for an established Diamond player to help his Bronze/Silver friends is to smurfs or trash his ELO by throwing games. And I doubt many Diamonds are willing to put in the time to lose 3 tiers of MMR, and destroy their personal ranking, just to play with Silver friends in Ranked. So again, the system is fine. It has protections against unfair games with wildly varying skill-levels. The issue is that people are playing the system by making smurfs.
That's just not true. Think of a Dia/Bronze duo Q back then. The Dia guy could probably carry the Bronze guy to low Gold, but then the Bronze drags the team down more than the Dia can carry. Compare that to a full Dia 5 man team with one Bronze, who only plays Blitzcrank. They can easily get to mid Plat.
