: QSS could purge it, you could Zhonya it to block it and make the MC-user go on cooldown, or mages could take a Banshee's Veil and they'd be safe from it. Alternatively, your teammate could save you from the mind control by CC-ing the user. A number of other things could be done to make the user of a mind control ult weaker, such as weak 1v1 capability, low durability, etc. Lastly, Sylvanas' version takes 1 second before she actually starts mind-controlling her target. This means her opponents can react to it.
Most of those apply to Malzahar's ult as well, and it still is very problematic.

Pyke main here, can confirm!
: Would a Mind Control ultimate still be off-limits due to "removes control" rule?
Too broken, cause it almost guarantees a kill. It works on Skarner because he has to be in melee range, he has to expose himself to pull it off. This also makes it more telegraphed, allowing you to react to it prematurely. Using something like that from range is a big no-no. People are already complaining about Malz's ult. This is a worse version.

Snowman Arc (EUNE)
: Nothing wrong with Ezreal to be honest. He's in a good spot. He has a high pick rate because he is strong early game and has huge skill expression. Only good Ezreal players can make him work and succeed, anyone below Masters is a trash Ez. He has a lot of agency over the early and mid game, which is what is needed mostly to win games, while he falls off hard late game. This is actually GOOD BALANCE. His high pick rate is only in the highest elo, and that's because people can actually play Ez and they have the tools to affect the game in a big way.

His double tear build also has a whopping 60% winrate according to op.gg.
: Is there a downside to supporting Pyke instead?
He is a squishy melee champion and will heavily get bullied if he tries to cs. It's one of the primary reasons you don't see any melee ADCs botlane. He probably also doesn't have enough damage to substitute for an ADC. Having that much damage on a support would be broken.
Azadethe (NA)
: I doubt Pyke meta items will be pure damage. They will be a mix of HP/AD items and Armor/HP items and Resist/HP items to feed his passive AD gain and make him tanky enough that his low HP doesn't become a liability. Wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't go {{item:3305}} {{item:3109}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3800}} or something just to stack HP/tankiness to convert it into some AD, yet still have mobility, tankiness, and a way to secondary heal what's left of his HP after his passive is spent. (Not saying BC will be in a build, but Phage would help him stay in and cast multiple R's while teams are running from his resets while he waits on his Ghost/Dash abilities to recharge). Otherwise he's often going to pop like a grape.
Deadman's Plate is 2.9k gold, BC is 3k gold and Righteous Glory is 2.65k gold (still more expensive than 90% of the other support items). So as I said, his build will be more expensive, and he will therefore need more gold than other supports. Reav3 and other Rioters have mentioned that both Duskblade and Ghostblade work well on him, both 2.9k gold damage items. I also wouldn't be surprised if his HP to AD conversion is pretty bad, considering its there to prevent him from going tanky in the first place. The only defensive items I see working on him are those that give both armor and MR, as opposed to one or the other + HP, such as Banner, Zz'rot or Locket (although non of their passives will be good on Pyke). He doesn't have to be that tanky. People forget that he's an assassin, therefore he should go for ganks/picks instead of teamfights. People also forget he is a support, so he shouldnt be 1v1'ing anyone anyway. You should primarily play around his passive, invisibility and cc for survivability.
: Can we change Pykes name to "Autofill" or "We're literally begging you to come try out support."?
As a support main I welcome this ground-breaking design. Another traditional support would have been dull, because while yes they may have unique mechanics, the overall gameplay stays the same. Pyke is an entirely new take on the support role, and if I ever want to go ham and go for kills, I don't have to play a different role.

Which the ADC would have gotten anyway since generally the ADC takes the kill. The additional gold goes onto the support. Its not like the ADC gets 600g from a single kill. This extra gold is also not game-breaking because Pyke has a much more expensive build than other supports, as he won't be building support items but damage items. Building damage items in itself is not game-breaking since he will probably have shit ratios on his abilities, to limit his damage output. Not even going to bother to comment on the other nonsense you claim. People should really learn how to think rationally if they want to discuss something on the boards.
Pika Fox (NA)
: Its probably less so he needs more gold and moreso he needs to snowball, and he is designed to take kills. All supports who have abilities that might take the kill give the gold to other champions already (lulu, nami), his just also gives himself full credit which fits his snowball style.
Support items generally range between 2k - 2.4k gold, while damage items are generally 2.8k+ gold. Almost all support items only add defensive stats, utility, or protection for your team, non of which is useful to Pyke (except perhaps some utility). Pyke needs damage items, which are more expensive, and therefore he needs more gold. I don't see why he has to snowball harder than other snowbally champions, who don't get any additional gold from their kit.

I foresee a lot of angry ADCs in the future. This so much. I fear that people who learn to support by playing Pyke will make terrible supports, as they won't learn the fundementals of what supports are meant to do. On the other hand support players who then master Pyke are going to be very scary.
: Why did riot want to make a roaming support?
Most supports are supposed to roam, except for a handful. Pyke just does it a little bit better, like Bard. Supporting isn't just about babysitting your ADC all game long, you're a support to your team, not an individual player. Knowing when to roam and when not to makes a great support. Sadly soloQ ADCs often have problems with roaming supports.

Jungling because of the regen health and movement speed in river for ganking. Top lane because he can be like Tryndamere and be a great split pusher Health regen in the jungle? It only works off of champion damage. Also he won't be able to hold his own in lane, he doesn't have enough damage for trades. He also doesn't have any waveclear mechanics. There is no reason to pick Pyke top/mid over another champion.
: Pyke - Ult Kills by him grant 300G for TWO Damage Dealers
Pyke needs the double gold to function. Unlike traditional supports, cheap support items don't work well with him; he should go for a more expensive build featuring damage items. He wouldn't be able to obtain these items without an additional influx of gold, since he won't be cs'ing as a support. That said, it feels incredibly snowbally.
: Honestly Pyke doesn’t really do anything new...
Why does he have to do something new (even though he does)? He provides a very unique and refreshing take on the support role. Yes his abilities may be somewhat similar to those of other champions, but supports won't be playing those champions anyway.

I'm under the impression that OP only wants a different chat for these "toxic players", and they will still play with regular players. Flaming back and forth will lead to more typing and less playing. At the same time flaming may lead to frustrations and therefore a reduced gameplay. This would screw over the regular players. If the OP wants an entirely new "game mode" for "toxic players", while initially that may sound appealing (to be finally rid of toxic players), it would significantly increase Q times.

I'm an adult Your need to depict anyone who doesn't want to deal with toxicity as a "13 year old kid" tells me otherwise. It really isn't that hard to not be toxic. If you have problems being toxic you maybe want to look into that, instead of suggesting changes to the game. Your entire post is a hyperbole and blatant lie. [Riot has recently explained that report calling is not a punishable offense](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/PzY1ArN3-we-dont-ban-people-for-asking-for-reports), so this example is completely invalid. Furthermore giving constructive feedback to players is not considered toxic. It all depends on the way you bring said feedback. You say players don't want any feedback because they don't want to be bossed around, so why give feedback? Apparently you feel the need to force your feedback on others despite knowing that they don't want it. This tells me you have a need to highlight the mistakes of others and focus on the negatives. You say you want to improve and play with people who take the game serious. Your proposed change isn't going to bring you that. Your proposed chat would be a cesspool of toxic players flaming each other and bringing down the quality of the match played. There would be little constructive feedback found there.

If they were as broken as so many people like to complain, they would flood soloQ. But all everyone sees in soloQ are assassins, because they are much more effective, and everyone is only concerned about carrying. Tanks require communication with your team, which you don't find in soloQ, so they're just meatbags. If you get destroyed by a tank as adc, you should work on your positioning.

People should stop saying this. Supports are a very diverse role of champions, and only a handful can reliably stop assassins. Unless you're one of those people who complain that cc stops assassins, in that case most champions have some form of cc and will therefore invalidate assassins. If you have a problem with certain supports, name them. Don't act like all supports are the same.

: When should I start PVP?
Find a few champions you're comfortable with, and then start playing PvP soon. When I first got into LoL, I spend around 2-3 years only playing bots, because I was afraid of the toxicity everyone kept talking about. The first week in PvP I learned so much more than 3 years of playing bots. I regret not starting to PvP sooner. The AI of bots isn't really that good. You can easily bait them into overextending and subsequently kill them. It will lead to learning the game wrong, because things like that don't happen in PvP, so it gives a false sense of how good you are. This also means you will develop a relatively aggressive playstay, which is generally not so good when you're new to PvP. I'd suggest to play safe during your first few games, and then you can become increasingly more aggressive, until you have found yourself a good balance. That said, bots are great to try out different champions, so you can get a feel for their abilities and general power curve. Also, people just love to talk about how toxic the community is, but don't let this bother you! It was the reason I refrained from playing PvP for so long. Once I start PvP'ing, I barely noticed any of the toxicity that everyone kept complaining about. It's mostly just a hyperbole. Final note, if you have a friend to play with you can try to form a botlane ADC/support duo. It may make the game a lot more fun. And remember, most important of all is to have fun!

First of all, that's a beautiful concept you got going there. It's a nice take on the Star Guardian design while still looking like leona. Love it. That said, I like the blue and orange/yellow color themes best. Honestly I can't tell you why I like the blue theme, I just do. The yellow/orange theme gives Leona more identity; it keeps parts of her original/base design while also introducing a new color to the skin line. Personally I'm not a fan of pink/red for the Star Guardians in general, mostly because it's too obvious to go for these colors with this skin theme. I like other colors getting explored. At the same time, the dark purple gives me a dark/evil fibe, which is why it works well with Syndra but I don't see it working with Leona (possible try a lighter tone, akin to Janna's?)
