: So 3460g worth of defensive stats for 2400g? Ofcourse it requires 3 enemy champions but still.
Exactly why it works. Don't underestimate the 3 enemy champions requirement. Even when that tank that you shouldn't be focussing early on in a teamfight can't be killed. In later stages of that fight these bonusses are gone what makes cleanups & turn arround still very possible. It's also worth to mention that even a billion armor has any chance against the likes of {{item:3035}} that just shred through it like paper. And than we haven't even mentioned the amount of %health damage & true damage in the game that makes that armor number really not that impressive.

: Replacing his untargetable with unstoppable is just a flat out nerf. Going from "You don't get hit by that Morg Q" to "You don't get rooted by that Morg Q" is a downgrade, and if anything I'd want to see that travel speed *decreased* so he has the opportunity to dodge more spells and follow on more dashes.
I actually never said it should be a buff. The current problem with Maokai W is that the slow missle speed gives you really poor interactions. You say lower it. Back on the pbe the missle speed was lower and people litterly could outrun it. Imagin you are playing Janna & you let Maokai W you. Well you would been able to perma run arround taking Maokai hostage in his W. Maybe take a trip to the fountain while your add it. I doubt that's an healthy gameplay design. If you was to maintain this slow misslespeed playstyle changing up how it work is crucial to his gameplay. Keep in mind when he's targetable you are able to soak more spells so rather than removing the frontline for the duration. The frontline is coming to you.

: Those W changes are terrible. * He'd be far too easy to lane as, since he now has an instant cast skillshot dash he can use to get out of any danger. * He loses almost all of current Maokai's skill expression (predicting mobility spells to follow the enemy, dodging key spells with the invulnerability) * More mobility creep... yay. The passive change also sucks. It cripples his late game by making it so he no longer counters spell spam.
I partly argea, it should remain a targetted ability. What I do like to see is that they remove the untargetable effect but in return he's unstoppable and the travel speeds has been increased again. As far the ult goes. I believe an missle speed AP ratio should be more than enouge make it more rewarding to use in later stages of the game.

: [Suggestion] New "Quick play" option to get into games faster.
It has potentional but I would suggest they force you to fill in all roles but allow you to ban out one role. I would also only limit it to normals as a replacement for blind pick. The only issue with this system is when a champion is released players will just pick that champion in every role to get it.

: When ap support free farms bot, what to do?
Just play the game & let him carry you. If your really short on gold their are cheaper builds that you can go for to remain relavant in the game. For casting adc's you can go for {{item:3071}} and for auto attack based marksmen you can go for {{item:3153}}

: Nerf pyke's ult gold generation already.
He kinda needs the gold to make this assassin support style concept work. Maybe they can nerf the gold a little bit but I wouldn't go as far as compleetly removing it. This all said tho, is it so bad to have a support that is able to score a good number that otherwise is dominated by sololaners. It's like complaining that Zyra deals more damage than her teammates.

: My boi shen is getting a buff, but this is a questionable about jax and fiora I dont know why they buff Jax and fiora. Maybe their early game is weak or something?
Guess their trying the let's buff the counters of the broken champions so the broken champions don't feel that broken. In theorie it should work but I fear the ballance team isn't their yet and need a lot more experience & failed attempts in order to make it work. They are add least trying this time.
: Is it now time to nerf Tristana?
Just make her W interruptable and you have a fixed champion.
: Which two roles are the most different and why?
Top & Support in my opinion, some of the champions might be similar. In terms of mechanics & macro during the early to midgame it's a total different beast.
JuiceBoxP (EUNE)
: The reason i think tanks are bad right now.
I believe we recieved a point where things conponements like {{item:1028}} + {{item:1029}} should become a thing.
: What is the absolutely best support of the game?
If it's for competive I think it will be {{champion:12}}. Since meta shifts and nerfs happen all the time their is not a single carry support you can risk to remain playing. When support role is overnerfed only tank & enchanter remain viable. Since tank supports have more carry potentional you are forced to pick a tank. If it's a team for solo Q than {{champion:143}} my friend.
: People troll my games because I pick Vel'koz support.
Guess most of these players don't known the game very well. {{champion:161}} is more than viable as a support. His pickrate dropped during the meta shift but he's still on the same tier as other AP supports suitable for the role like {{champion:143}} {{champion:63}}{{champion:26}} {{champion:9}}. If I had to tell something crazy, you have less chance to win a game {{champion:25}} {{champion:555}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:44}} etc than when picking {{champion:161}} right now.

If we imagine a word where each point of CDR costs 1000 gold, getting 40% CDR would definitely not be a must-have. Obviously, no one is suggesting it should cost that much, but it means as the cost of CDR increases there are fewer situations and champions where getting high CDR is mandatory.
That's the same as removing the cdr stat all together. Would be funny to see carries running arround with higher cdr as the support.
: CDR just needs to cost more and/or appear on fewer items and/or in lower quantities.
I wish that was a solution but this wouldn't solve the problem: * The 40% will remain the must have scenario * It would only troubles supports that can't just skip cdr, solo laners will abuse their cdr items * This will gate builds since they will just go for the build that gives you the most cdr rather than building something situational.

Root's might need some changes or be seperated between a few forms: * Entangle: Cannot cast dash abilities, other abilities can still be cast but they won't move (like Akali's shuriken) [example Zyra's E] * Root: Can only cast selfcast abillties where rooted. [Example: Ryze root]

: Nightblue3 got banned
It's a deserved ban and it actually benefits everyone: * Nightblue3 so people aren't going to randomly attack his stream because he didn't get punished for what he did * The Teemo player that was attacked that despite also been banned he has a feeling justice has been done from his side as well * Riot for their repuation and respecting their own system * The community because an example was made It's only a tempory ban and both parties have different accounts. It's a fair punishment for a desperately needed statement towards this community.

: 9.14 changes according to Riot Repertoir (Blitzcrank, Leona, Akali, Lux, Tahm kench)
So TL;DR {{champion:223}} gutted because of sololane abuse {{champion:84}} they finally reverted to shroud to normal stealth {{champion:99}} sigh..., overnerfing her instead of Aftershock & Athene's. What's going on, best part is they litterly removed 2 mechanics from her kit. Some might be happy she is finally nerfed. But like I guessed they nerfed her compleetly wrong.,This don't feel like tempory nerfs that can reverted. I lost all hope from the ballance team after seeing this (since this is EXACTLY what I PREDICTED what would happend...). {{champion:53}} changes are intressting, the changes to {{champion:78}} support as well. {{champion:89}} changes are looking dangerous, they keep buffed her. She might become the new Lux in the future ones a item or keystone get's broken.

: The ranked system isn't as accurate at measuring player skill as it could be.
They maybe can add some more upgrades to ranked armor like letting the armor shine more with a good KDA and let it rust with a bad KDA.
: "I support Nubrac but I do not want him in my own games"
I don't think he deserves to be banned for this. Part of the reason why this strat worked so well is that most players didn't adapt to this strat like: * Freezing botlane pushing out the adc from experience * Changing up your midlane pick by taking something that has more range like {{champion:101}} {{champion:115}} * Let the jungle prepare on camping toplane. * Disrespecting the 1v2, back when lane swamps where a thing (bot switches to top). The 1v2 strat happend all the time and their was a never a problem with it. The game was very jungle heavy depended to break freezes and it eventually went away when players adapted. Their where also options like letting the support rotate to mid as well or just letting botlane swamp with midlane. In the long run these strategies would be aplied and the strat would dispear all together. The sad part on all of this is that the reality that these master players (that suppose to be high tier). Played poorly against it and rather than adapting and taking away this strategy they let riot make it bannable. I wouldn't be shocked whe would ever see this strat in a competive game since it really can bring teams offguard. With how unprofessional these players response to all of this some random teams might win out some series. And because riot made it bannable now teams will be very unprepared against it because they never where able to pratice how to counter it.
: Hashinshin: MR items are weak, Armor items are too strong
Hashinshin is wrong, but the reverse is far from the truth: * Armor items are indeed in a terrible spot, but not when it comes to flat stats. Their issues comes with their active/passive and their terrible synergy with it forcing every seperate armor item to be strong but together they useally and blocking their full potentional. * Mr items have the issue they have no options. I believe the changes to {{item:3001}} will be intressting in solving this problem. * Protobelt is ok, but the problem with the item is you us it for a different reason it's designed for.

KazKaz (OCE)
: Damage meta is just not fun
It's actually not as bad than it used to be. I still remember the times where squishy champion dit a lot more damage over time & litterly where deleted from just a few auto's in the earlygame. Poke used to be a lot stronger. An artillery mage could take out champion with 2 skillshots, Rengar didn't needed 0.8 seconds to kill you (he only needed 0.2). Every played a support in season 3 where a rank 3 ult oneshotted you with just mpen boots. Compaired to this, the meta isn't as bad as it seems. Games are no longer a stall of 40 minutes (in gold elo & higher). I fear if damage goes down again we will get those turtle comps again. And trust me, you don't want to go back to that season ever again...
: Buff tanks not the items.
Buffing their base stats won't solve anything. But I do agrea they need todo something. Tank general problem right now is safe waveclear
: Answer: I do attack move Thanks for all that info, really appreciate it. I usually stick to one build for each of my champs and go that every game because I dont like sitting in base for a long time trying to figure out whats good or not (and that I also don't know whats best). For brand support and lucian botlane, what support do you think would be best? I thought nami would be good because she has a heal for all of brands massive poke and a disengage for lucians ult or when he uses his dash. I'd like to try sona like you said, she seems good in the right situations. Im just trying to get some blue essence to be able to afford her, takes like a week or more to just get one champ.
Enchanters with high sustain tend to shine against poke heavy champions during the midgame or when ahead during the lane fase. The problem is in terms of the earlygame. Early poke is generally stronger than early sustain in league (which is logical). Picking an enchanter into Brand is only reliable when you have botlane pressure from your Jungle. In those situations picking Nami could be alright but it's still a very skill intensive situation when it comes to winning the lane fase during Nami's aggressive nature. The problem with {{champion:267}} {{champion:498}} vs {{champion:63}} {{champion:236}} wasn't just support vs support. The outcome of that matchup was mostly determed by the botlane synergy between the support & marksmen. Nami is an enchanter that is great add improving her adc position & buffing her trading. The thing with {{champion:498}} is that her playstyle is more build arround poke & reactive trades. Not the other way arround. From my experience if you want to win that matchup you will need to have lane pressure by pushing them into the tower. The problem is that in terms of waveclear Brand/Lucian are a lot stronger so a skilled enemy botlane wouldn't give this for free. Beside needing the pressure this is also risky when you don't have Jungle pressure. In terms of poke their stronger as well. In terms of range you are both matched & in terms of all-in you should have had the advantage if you had an traditional auto attack based markmen. Your only clear advantage is your gank assistance & advantage in win extended trades with lane pressure. Enchanters tend to shine in siuations where they have the lead. If you can't create an advantage in your own lane. Just try to keep your adc alive or roam to lanes where you have the advantage. In terms of champions that are ok/good against Brand: * **Counters:** {{champion:16}} {{champion:37}} * **Soft Counters:** {{champion:40}}, {{champion:117}}, {{champion:497}} * **Skill matchup:** * **Edge to counter:** {{champion:26}} {{champion:267}} (edge to brand with bad botlane synergy), {{champion:43}} (midlane ult E counters his ult), {{champion:555}}, {{champion:89}} (vs experienced brands, can be a soft counter against inexperienced ones) * **Edge to brand:** {{champion:99}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:25}} It takes a lot of game to succesfully handling a {{champion:63}} in lane. For {{champion:267}} it's a skill matchup. In terms of champion I wouldn't recommand to ever pick against a Brand is {{champion:201}}. Braum has the 2th lowest base mr (now Yuumi is released) in the game. Even onetricks will have problems against a good Brand. I believe that {{champion:37}} is in a strong spot power wise right now. So it's probally a good moment to pick her up. Just be carefull against {{champion:53}}. Good luck ;)
: To all you Yuumi "33% win rate" ney sayers
She's the enchanter for poke marksmen right now. She's great with things like {{champion:51}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:110}}. Just don't pick her with a {{champion:67}} because your going to die.
: Can anyone give tips to silver player?
> I tried out most to all of the different supports, Trying out every support that's out their will indeed be helpfull to known what you play against. But I wouldn't focus on trying to master everyone of them when playing in a silver elo. > I watch countless of youtube videos on my champ and guides on them hours on end. I have a ton of knowledge in my head but in game I am totally awful I have a feeling your trying out to many things on to many different champions. Watching video's is nice but I have a feeling you look to much of them without watching your own gameplay. Use the replay system to your advantage and start watching your own games. When possible watch it on a slower speed so you can determ your own mistakes and solve them for future games. > and it's kinda pissing me off because with all of the time i spent towards this game, ive been silver 3-4 within a 3 years span. Play around 5 hours a day on weekdays and more on weekends. Spending so much time is not always productive. Instead of playing 5 hour league of legends. Play 2 hours & take the other 2 hours to watch the games (preferable the games you lost). > I mostly play nami, braum, soraka and blitzcrank. I die averagely 8-10 times a game which im kinda clueless on too because i die most of the time alone vs in teamfights. That's indeed a hard combination in lower mmr. Enchanters tend to be very team depended. Braum is not that good in lower mmr (he's more of a time bomb that is team depended where you can't rely on in lower mmr). Blitz is fine but ones your in high silver players tend to adapt to him & it takes more mastery to get him out of the lane fase. > Could anyone give me some tips or play some games with me to see what im doing wrong? Im trying to improve but whatever I try I get no results and its pathetic. Thanks guys The first thing I noticed is that you pick {{champion:267}} against very unfavorable matchups. In one of your games you had an {{champion:498}} adc against a {{champion:63}} {{champion:236}} botlane. The second thing I noticed is you don't build for the situation on {{champion:267}}. You build {{item:3504}} for {{champion:202}} in one of your games. Their where play of other items that would suit that situation better like {{item:3174}}. The enemy team exist almost entirely out of magic damage. So that change would probally give you an entire different game. Question: Do you use attackmove? This is what I recommand: Try to stick with the same support in ranked. This way you have a better unstanding on the matchups and you will recieve less deaths when in a bad matchup. I suggest you stick with Braum. Alternatively you can go {{champion:267}} or {{champion:16}}. I feel your Nami could be OK if you would build her correctly. Try {{champion:37}} her kit is similar.
: No room for casual play in League of Legends. You are forced to commit to LoL or Uninstall
I think your better off with creating a new account. Their will be smurf add the start but your mmr is basicly reset and ones you level 30 you will probally be placed in high iron/bronze/low silver and you will be able to play the game again. You can demote yourself so much you want. It's your mmr that only can ballance out smoothly. What's also worth mentioning ones you have time to play league against you will easy catchup to your old rank. What I would do is create a smurf, level that one up and play ranked with that one. If you have feeling your getting better again you can away switch to your main and play ranked on a competive level again.

: A few questions before I do a more in-depth review: Are his auto attacks ranged or melee? How does his q place/attach chains during his ult? Could you give me a general idea about his q range, cooldown (empowered and unempowered), and the cc durations on his e and r? What kind of build(s) are you expecting him to use? How is he intended to play in laning phase and teamfights? What kind of weapon does he use? Any extra lore in general would be great since he sounds like he could be a really interesting character in light of the Ziggs short story. Also, there's no point in making his ult both root and ground the target since a root already prevents dashes and blinks.
> Are his auto attacks ranged or melee? Since he's a skirmisher I would make him melee. He has enouge mobility & tools to get in auto attack range. > How does his q place/attach chains during his ult? The idea is to make him a teamfight monster so he repeated heal his allies. When he's in the ult. I was thinking about making heals on the same target less effective since he should be able to use his Q very frequently during his ult duration. I was thinking it would feels like a burst of healing in teamfights. > Could you give me a general idea about his q range, cooldown (empowered and unempowered), and the cc durations on his e and r? The target range would be something arround 600 but with a relative high cooldown on early ranks let's say 17 / 15 / 13 / 11 / 9. When in his ult I would removed the cooldown or maybe limit it on 0.5 - 1 second between casts. I might need to add a limit on how many times he's able todo this. It's hard to known without seen it in practice. > What kind of build(s) are you expecting him to use? Since it's a skirmisher he would be building attackspeed, crit & attack damage like {{item:3087}} {{item:3153}} {{item:3026}} {{item:3046}} {{item:3033}} with {{item:3302}} as support item. However items like {{item:3504}} {{item:3107}} will work on him a little bit during the scaling of total attackspeed combo with ardent & redemption could be a situation one if he decides to go that route. > How is he intended to play in laning phase and teamfights? His focus would be teamfights. He does provide some zoning pressure with his mobility & can soak some cc for his adc but his main goals is reaching the teamfight fase when he can dash arround in teamfights. > What kind of weapon does he use? Any extra lore in general would be great since he sounds like he could be a really interesting character in light of the Ziggs short story. Well I actually didn't mention the weapons for that reason. I was first thinking about a fox with guns but in terms of his kit & gameplay blades would suit better. So I was thinking about something technological like sticks that turned into a melee weapon like short scepters or something. I had some ideas regarding his lore but I'm not a really good story teller. I think in terms of personality he should be something very loyal, always having his teammates back (maybe even litterly). He's the guy that goes back to back with his allies. > Also, there's no point in making his ult both root and ground the target since a root already prevents dashes and blinks. Wasn't sure for flash anymore, but good to known.
