: Things You Miss About The Game But You Know Will Never Come Back?
Oh there's sooo many things. I miss when games weren't decided entirely by the junglers and early snowballing. I miss when everything didn't all insta-gib squishies. I miss when I could just jungle and not have to *constantly* worry about not affecting all three lanes all at the same time. But most of all... I miss when Sejuani's E wasn't such a chore to use, I miss when Sejuani was a reliably potent pick without at least two other melee champions on your team and I miss when Sejuani didn't need to be at Lux distances away from the enemy to get the AoE functionality of her ult.

: Omega Squad Veigar's ult (and possibly q)
The ult itself looks real nice really, but that's not really the issue I have with it... It just... Doesn't really have the "BANG" you expect from Veigar's ult. I think part if it may also be because of how loud the cast sound is. There's no buildup for the impact, it's just sorta deafened out by the cast. I think the same goes for the visuals too, with the projectile being so "Noisy" that the explosion becomes less visually impactful.
: Wait what
The theme, the theme for Taliyah. The theme composed specifically for Taliyah's login, Taliyah's theme. That theme. I'd love sheet music for it. I love that song.

Is Taliyah one of the future releases? Because I really hope Taliyah is one of the future releases. That song is just *way* too good.
: He was not melting tanks faster then tanks melted you. Even back then he needed multiple rotation to kill a tank.
I am pretty certain that that wasn't the case. Sure, there may have been exceptions, but there are always a few exceptions. Regardless, I don't see this arguement of tank melting going anywhere, continuing it is pointless, so let's agree to disagree and move on. In the end, Malzahar was an unhealthy, anti-fun champion that *needed* to change. He didn't need what he got, the rework failed in pretty much every way, but he still needed changes. If you want to argue that, I'll gladly hear your side of it, but this is how I feel and likely how Riot felt too.
: Everything can melt tanks today. So your reasoning holds no water. Malzahar had to choose back then to either melt tank or kill carries with more ap not both. Tanks die today very fast because AD is busted not because of AP ....
how exactly does that mean my reasoning holds no water? What you're saying is that "Because tanks melt to most AD champions now, Malzahar should have been allowed to melt tanks back then." If anything, *that* arguement holds no water. You're very literally saying "Yeah there's a different issue now, so the issues in the past were completely acceptable."

Yep, lvl 6 is when Veigar finally becomes *actually dangerous.* He then only gets stronger and stronger up until people start reaching about level 16, where he starts falling back just a bit. I think that summarizes his spikes pretty neatly. ... I mean, I should know. He's my highest mastery champion.
: Interesting. I remember differently. Tanks usually destroyed him easily because back then they actually had damage with their tankiness. Full tank Garen could easily kill you during his silence duration for example. He only "destroyed" tanks when he built magic penetration instead of more ap lategame. Even then killing someone 1 vs 1 is skill dependant. If the Tank decided to 1 vs 1 a late game carry who specializes in 1 vs 1 then they sure as hell deserved to die.
Highly depends on the tank, really. Far from all tanks had enough damage to fight Malzahar, Garen happened to be one of the ones that did. Garen's design also encourages actually building some damage, that's always been true, not just after the Juggy update. Also, the fact that Malzahar COULD go for a build that allowed him to essentially 100-0 a tank is still not very healthy design, he's literally negating what a tank's *entire role is.* But tanks aside, the fact that Malzahar was an extremely unhealthy champion remains a fact that you cannot claim wasn't true. It wasn't Poppy or Yorick levels, but it was still way too damn high, which *Riot themselves acknowledged.*
: gotta love how they dumpstered {{champion:90}} when he was fine for years
Malzahar was *NOT* fine. Sure, he worked as a champion, he got what he was designed to do done, but that wasn't the issue. The issue was the way he got it done. Seriously. There was nothing fun about being caught out by a Malzahar and getting 100 - 0'd *AS A TANK,* and even worse was that you literally couldn't do anything about it, only your allies could. He wasn't reworked because he wasn't strong. He got reworked because he was anti-fun. (Though to be fair, the rework didn't really help that *too* much, not with that passive, but at least ***tanks*** don't get 100-0'd by him anymore.)

I mean, it's pretty simple really. Make him use his E. Get on his face. ***Pound him into the fucking ground.*** If you have the right champion, there's also the option to just outrange him. Really, Veigar's late game isn't *as* good as people make it out to be. It's definitely not bad, but mid-game is where Veigar *really* shines.

If not that, then he's going to either need max number of stacks or have a scaling by level in lieu of stacks. So then you must believe Veigar should lose stacks as well?
I wanna chime in here, as someone who thoroughly enjoys playing both Veigar *and* Nasus. I don't believe Veigar and Nasus should be balanced the same way, especially in terms of stacks. The way their abilities benefit from their stacks are completely different with similar results. However, while they both share the glaring weakness of a pitiful early game, once they become strong enough to fight, their strengths and weaknesses basically become opposites of eachother. ... I also believe that Cho'Gath *not* losing his stacks and being able to stack infinitely was a silly idea, but hey, that's just my opinion.
: Remember when mana conservation used to be a thing?
Uhm... No. No I don't, really. Not since last time I played DotA 2. (Crystal Maiden, yaaaay!) They've always had SOME mana problems in the early game, but generally it's always been like "Mage gets 1 mana item and their mana issues go poof." What I DO remember is having to choose wether I wanted capped CDR or pure, raw damage. Given how Veigar was/is my mage of choice, it was *always* the latter :3 That said though, there ARE still some champions who actually need to manage their mana properly, like say, Aurelion. Seriously, that guy eats through mana like a BorK Yi eats through an armorless tank. Taliyah has a fair share of management to do as well, making sure she has enough mana to roam while pushing hard enough to have the opportunity. I'm sure there's more of them, but I don't have a large enough pool of frequently played champs to know any more...
: ? both these reasons contradict each other. If all Riven and Yasuo mains have to become nice people, there wouldn't be any people who stray from the stereotype. wat.

: Should Ashe and Sejuani look stronger?
For Ashe, I'd say it makes a lot of sense for her to be relatively lithe. As an archer, her main skills should be arm-strength and precision, and you don't need to be super muscular to have good strength in your arms. Sejuani on the other hand; She should probably be larger. Or at least a bit broader. Compared to what she *used* to look like, current sej is a massive improvement, but I wouldn't mind her being a bit larger. Not Illaoi size, but a smidge larger than she currently is. I'd personally also like to know why the designers felt it necessary to leave cleavage in Sej's design when they changed her from "Bikini Cavalry" to "Badass Warlord". Like, I get it, people like tits, but to me at least that opening in Sej's outfit feels really... Out of place. She really doesn't feel like the kind of character to show cleavage to me.
: Lets talk, Aurelion Sol
I would personally be fine if all his damage didn't retreat up his ass for 4 full seconds every time the slightest bit of hard-CC got within 10-foot radius of him. It's a looooong time to wait for it to come back up in a fight. I get that Rylai's makes having his stars out at all times a bit... Really difficult to deal with, but 4 full seconds still seems a bit too punishing.

: Anyone else ever felt lost playing champions?
{{champion:113}} Cinderhulk happened... When her banrate had finally fallen low enough for me to actually be able to play her again, her W didn't even feel like it existed anymore. It's just sorta... There. The AA Reset and the (back then) ridiculous ease with which you could repeatedly cancel the AA animation were all that remained. I get she needed nerfs, I just wish they could have done something that didn't remove all sense of satisfaction from one of her abilities. There's also Taliyah, a champion whom I pretty much just fell in love with when she was released, but the changes to her W and E lowered the usefulness of her E by letting the combo eat at her power budget. But hey, It's not all bad! Veigar and Karma have just gotten more and more satisfying with each buff/change they've gotten, and once I got sort of decent with Aurelion, he got pretty damn satisfying to succeed with too!
: Why doesn't anyone play Taliyah?
Summarized; 1: She doesn't deal 50 veigars of damage within a split second 2: She isn't tanky. 3: She isn't mobile. 4: Her W is... Unreliable. 5: She takes effort. ... I mean I f*cking love playing her, but I can see pretty clearly why others wouldn't.

>you can proactively stop their zzrots by getting an inhib Getting an inhib doesn't stop their ZZ'Rot at all, it just means you got an inhib while their ZZ'Rot chewed away at your objectives. That's not "Dealing With", that's a "Trade-off". If you're thinking to destroy their inhib ahead of them placing ZZ'rot, well, that doesn't really change much, does it? It means their inhib is down, it has no effect on ZZ'Rot, not to mention taking an inhibitor isn't something you can just choose to do at any time. >or even just getting a banner of command/zzrot yourself. Having to counter an item by getting the same (or a similar) item isn't at all healthy design.

There are also plenty situations where someone can place down their ZZ'Rot and you *can't* force a 5v4, either because your team is split up, because someone on your team is dead or hell, maybe the 4 members they have left are powerful teamfight champions.

: The burst mentality
When it comes to Vayne, I generally use tumble as an opportunistic trade-tool. They let me hit them twice? Q, AA, back off. Gets me in range, gets the AA off, no minion-block issues. Nice 'n easy. Veigar on the other hand, when I get someone stunned, I tend to delay my Q so it hits just as W hits. Really, it's just a strange habit, but I like to think I do it to stop them from pin-pointing exactly how much damage my abilities do seperately. Knowledge is power after all and the death recap sure as hell isn't gonna tell them what happened.

You could explain the differences between an AD champion and an AP champion, and how their scalings change how they function? You could also go for something like "Warlord's *technically* works, but it's not efficient because it doesn't scale off AP. Thunderlord's Decree and Deathfire Touch does, though." There's also the "Warlord's Bloodlust only gives you enough health to be worth it if you deal at least 80% of your damage through auto attacks" If he then begins to play AD Anivia, you explain how a champion using AD or AP is decided by what their ABILITIES scale with, And for Anivia, that is AP. Could also be that he's doing it just to trigger you. Either way, he's got to learn some way or other. If you can't convince him, then he's just gonna have to learn on his own.

So, I could go on and on about these subjects, but I'll focus exclusively on ZZ'Rot to keep myself from getting too wordy. ___ #The Issue: ###ZZ'Rot has a key issue with how it functions at its very core, something that is the very essence of what creates uninteractivity; It cannot be proactively dealt with, and sometimes, not even reactively. ___ #The Details: ####If you don't know what exactly that means; There are two forms of "Action" one can take: **Reactive**, which is to respond to what your opponent is doing; to *follow*. **Proactive**, which is to prepare for or to set up; to *lead*. These aren't really related to the immediate goings-on of the game, so many players don't really even know about them, but they're key to any form of game of strategy; The one who acts *proactively* is the one who *leads the game*. I believe it's obvious why that is an advantage. By leading the game, you can control its course, by controlling its course, you decide who wins. Things like preparing rotations (Pushing several lanes at once), setting up vision control near dragon and/or baron shortly before clearing them, Setting up a counter-gank or even just *warding* are all forms of *proactive action*. Actions whose goal is not to gain immediate advantages, but to set up and manipulate things to gain future advantages, or *prevent enemies from gaining said advantages*. ZZ'Rot... You cannot prepare for a ZZ'Rot. You know they've got one and you know it's gonna get placed, but nothing more. You don't even know *where* it'll be dropped. You just have to wait until its down and then spend valuable time dealing with it while the enemy team basically has free reign. You can *only act reactively* to a ZZ'Rot Portal, and if you don't deal with it, it's gonna spiral out of control. ___ #The Point: ####ZZ'Rot forces you to react. You don't have a choice. It's either "Go deal with it and give the enemy free reign and certain huge advantages" or "Ignore it and lose valuable objectives." ####You get even less options if you happen to already be the losing team, since you straight up don't even *have* the resources to react to the ZZ'Rot. ___ ######... This is why I need to actively stop myself from handling more than one topic at once. I write waaay too much.

I'm personally against this. I don't feel playing against ZZ'Rot is particularly fun.

Either way, it feels uninteractive and frustrating, forcing reaction without any real input from the enemy team.

: I'm just going to say it stealth isn't an interesting mechanic
I find stealth is a much more interesting mechanic when its done the way Heroes of the Storm did it, with very, very slight distortion where the hero is and since being hit brings you out of stealth you can actually do something about Nova being invisible. I mean, Akali's shroud leaving her completely invisible and not being brought out when hit is fine, because there's a limitation to it, something to play around. Shaco though? No. Fuck that shit. Shaco is especially bad IMHO because not only is it *invisibility*, but also a *flash*.

Seriously, her health regen is terrible. > - Quick gap closers Quick gap closers? Q Q R Q E is pretty good at closing gaps Why does she need sustain when she can mitigate any damage taken with the notorious no-cost shield
First of all; You're responding to a comment that is *two years* old, I'm surprised (and slightly impressed) you even found it, but I still stand by what it says. Now into my arguement: Riven isn't bad at closing gaps, she's very capable of it, but compare how quickly she gets there to anyone else with a gapcloser. Xin gets there near instantly, Camille is really fast too (and about 3 times the range), Akali, Vi, Diana, Rengar, Kha'Zix, so on so forth. They all reach their target *much* faster than Riven does. There's also the fact that Riven is using her primary damage ability just to get to you, which should make trading with her much easier (Though don't underestimate her passive.) And yes, a skilled Riven player will mitigate a lot of damage with her shield, but she's not invincible. The shield lasts for a puny *ONE* second. If she uses it to initiate for a stun combo, it wont be up for her to defend herself when the *actual retaliation* happens, but if she doesn't use it to initiate, she likely has a harder time getting to you without flash, since it's her fastest dash. **TLDR;** Riven has good gapclosing abilities, but they're not FAST, they're *consistent*. You have plenty time to react to her initiation compared to most other champs unless she comes out of brush at you. Look, I get it. Riven is frustrating to fight, trust me I *really* understand that, but she's not *overpowered*, and *definitely* not overloaded. She does one thing and one thing only, and that is brawl. You know *exactly* what a Riven is gonna do, and you know she's gonna do it well, so the best choice is to simply not allow her the opportunity to do it.

: Malzahar didn't even need a rework to begin with. Let's just call this rework a *failure* and revert it, can't we? His midlane got gutted for the SUPPORT role. SUPPORT! What has Malzahar been reduced to? Why did he deserve this?
That isn't actually an indication of how Malzahar's rework failed as much as it is an indication of the support role being fucked up. I can't give solid answers as to what exactly is going on, but it could be a fair few things: 1. The game has too much damage. This one is, well, it's true. Damage is off the charts, and having one champion that can't deal damage (i.e. most actual supports) is *not* a very desireable option. 2. Supports get too much gold. Now, before you get your pitchforks and torches out and burn me at the stake; hear me out. More money = more items, more items = more scaling, more scaling = more carry potential. If your support can scale nearly as hard as a dedicated carry, why sacrifice that potential carry for, say, Soraka? Especially because of my next point; 3. Mages often offer a lot of utility. Morgana? Yeah she was made to be a mid laner. Is she a mid laner? Pretty much "No" at this point. What's happened to Malz has happened before. Annie, Brand and Zyra were all supposed to be mid-lane mages too, but are taken support due to their high natural damage, scaling potential and utility. Malzahar's case isn't different. Also, don't get me wrong, Malzahar's rework is a failure on all levels. I don't know what it's like to play, but it sure as hell didn't make playing *against* him any better, which I believe was the original purpose of the rework. He did need changes though, just not these. Being able to solo 1-combo a *TANK* wasn't exactly very fair, or fun.

Yeah, 100%. And I know why too. When Riot nerfed Sejuani due to cinderhulk, they decided to halve her W's impact damage. No I am not exaggarating. Literally cut in half. End result is that Sej's W has no impact, you don't really feel anything no matter who you hit. It may be a relatively short CD 6% max health damage hit, but a single 6% on a champion that doesn't build a lot damage... It doesn't really feel like much. I sincerely hope you got to experience Sejuani's glory days of %health hitting TURRETS. Now THAT. THAT was satisfying. Also, Full AP Sej, where one impact W could deal a third of Shyvana's healthbar (provided it was a low MR build :P)
: But her whole thing is her AoE CC threat and that she charges in to punish people for sticking together, for being 'cowards.' I'm not sure if Sej players would like such a drastic change.
Sej player here, previous Sej main. No, I would not like that kind of change. I would hate Sejuani being a made Juggernaut. To me, her identity as a champion is her "Tag 'n' CC" style with W and E and her ability to completely shut down any attempts at escape when her Q, E and R are used right. As a tank (Vanguard, in her case) I see her defining factor being exchanging natural bulkiness and/or sustain for tank-scaling damage. Far from enough to be a juggernaut, but more than enough to trample squishies. Just chiming in. Gotta chime in for your favourite champs.
: Why does Gangplank passive do true damage?
Initially, I believed this thread to be a genuine questioning as to the purpose of the champion Gangplank's passive ability inflicting damage refered to as "True", to which I would reply; "Because he doesn't ignore your armor enough already", but upon noticing the inherent meme-age of the thread in question, my response has been altered to become: "Lel"
