: So, I ask again. Can we say that Kennedy MIGRATED to Toplane from other lane at all ? (And it was EU)
I think he went top as a "hard counter" when riven became dominant and kinda just overstayed his welcome
Moody P (NA)
: I thought that meta was from Europe?
Always thought it was american but either or s1 was still take aby champ you want to any lane bar jungle which was fiddle ww dominated
: >He used to be played ADC actually (it was like on hit AD build not crit of I remember right) Like, on S1 ? Because if it's not on elder seasons I only remember Rekkles pulling out the Kennen adc.
There really wasnt a meta in s1 You picked a champ and a lane and just went. Wasnt really until season 2 that the "American" meta top tanky mage mid jungler adc and supp bot began to take hold
Moody P (NA)
: Top lane is shrinking to range tops and the fighters/tanks who can deal with them
Not that i disagree with you, this afterall has been a problem for many years. If it wasnt viktor top this year it was lissandra, jayce and lulu a 2 or 3 years ago and before that it was ryze and vlad. But how is this any different to tanks and other bruisers who have no way to deal with the likes of riven ect?

: Karma's Old Identity on Hew New Kit (Healthy Compromise)
Old Q W similar to what you have suggested that's all she needs OT, part of the difficulty is that karma mains (myself included) cannot agree on where she should be played,. Most want her focused on support, some want her to be a primarily midlaner and an odd few want her as a toplanr

urgot ditched tear because he was reworked away from being a mana dependent spammy caster
: They buffed ADCs, not enchanters. Ardent meta was about enchanter supports, not ADCs and anyone who believes otherwise is an idiot.
> Ardent meta was about enchanter supports, not ADCs no all 3 were a problem ardent was busted as were enchanters but lets not forget most adcs were far stronger with (zeal and a bf) than mages who were stacking a tear most of the time
Seth L9 (OCE)
: Why did we revert crit items again?
Because they are too lazy too or incapable of balancing everyone else, as always they take the easy route. After the next conqueror buff they very likely will not have to buy a LW or a lifesteal item...
: Anyone else just never feel like logging in, but still surf the Boards?
: ADCs can do damage again!
oh we are back to the zeal bf power spike... the joys really wish riot would have you know nerfed the other classes rather than buffing adcs

: Advices for Karma`s itemization on solo lane
First off look at what your role is going to be in the team, will you be a damage dealer or a support for a carry jungler and/or toplaner (yi and jax) for example. ludens is fine and dandy if you will be a damage dealer but as a second support its wasted gold, {{item:3174}} {{item:3504}} would be the way to go
: How to get out of Silver ?
maybe switch to {{champion:236}} or {{champion:21}} and aim to stomp the shit out of your lane opponent
: It's time to actually Nerf Brand.
what actually annoys me it that a mage goes toplane ({{champion:112}} ) and is instantly nerfed while bot has to endure all the rejected midlaners for years at a time

if this was janna you would be going apeshit {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

Also, outside of rocket belt for initiation, and zhonya's for stasis, there is little he can do to efficiently use his ult.
: I feel like theyre just using enchantress referring to nami or to throw us off because after all that sexism at their office and their whole "we're going to do better speech" they surely wouldnt be dumb enough to make the first new enchanter in ~~3~~ 4 years a woman considering the entire primary role is all female.

so he losings 1v1s but has one of the best teamfight ults… https://steamusercontent-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/957464882654609637/26AE45EC7B85BCFEBFF12A7FC8CFF79BCC0F161A/
: Is OP.gg still a better source of win rate statistics than others?
: Why is Phantom Dancer getting a hexdrinker passive and a mini ghost??
because they are to lazy to deal with mages/assasins/divers doing 2 x the adcs hp as burst damage
: I've been thinking about the crit changes a lot today, and my conclusion is that they are taking power out of marksmen late game to let them have tools like this. If you want 100% crit on full build, it takes 4 items. You only get one more, and you have to choose whether that's going to be lifesteal, armor pen, or a defensive item. Therefore, I think marksmen are not going to have 100% crit in many games, even when they go late. In particularly rough games, they might even have to settle for 50% crit until very late. In exchange, since their offense is overall down, they're gonna need some help staying alive a bit longer. At least, that's the theory.
rather than dealing with the problem which is assasins/mages doing double the adcs HP as "burst" damage they give them this rubbish
Squad5 (NA)
: Sometimes. Usually the designer at least _feels_ like there's a good reason for everything on the kit - at the end of the day you often see extraneous things being removed from kits later on.
With all due respect you guys appear to have learned nothing from the recent akali,irelia and aatrox reworks. Having a champ with everything that they would need in a kit leaves far few weaknesses to exploit. Not to mention that these champs end up getting nerfed into oblivion
: Mundo winrate plummeted downward ever since the reduce cooldown of ignite
it actually says his winrate has increased from 48.16 in 9.1 to 49.63 in 9.2...
DyQuill (NA)

I mained fill for years which basically meant support, grew to love the role
: As much as a i hate irelia, shes going to need buffs after this patch
I generally am not in favour of nerfing items because they generally hit so many champions at once but maybe it would have been better to hit triforce and titanic hydra rather than nerfing irelia directly. Atleast that way it would have hit jax aswell
: Why do we not talk about how ridiculous Rengar is?
Because you get instantly downvoted when his mains see it. Hos survivabilty while building full damage is a bit of a joke

The champ itself is fine, his kit works. The problems are that lcs has ruined him, he cant easily abuse deathcap and void staff as early as other mages and he takes so long to come online to other mages.
Ayuki (NA)
: I could be wrong in saying this, but I do recall hearing from somewhere that it was already mentioned he is being reworked... _again_. But as your detailed post states, it’s kind of their only option. Hopefully they are able to put him in a good spot once and for all. Edit: Upon further searching, I couldn’t seem to find the sources of such claims and thus they are likely just word-of-mouth rumors I encountered.
I may be wrong here but others have said that riot are leaving him as is because they have spent enough time on him
: Ryze: 49% win rate in your BEST match-up is not fair
Because such a buff wouldnt just break him him solo q let alone make him pick or ban in lc$. And dont forget hes already oppressive enough to lane against in toplane.
: Umm no most tops can 1v1 nasus very easily by 20 mins since you just get him behind in lane and deny him farm and he will be useless for most of the game then.
he outscales the majority of melee toplaners with just a sheen what are you on about :D

Tomoe Gozen (EUNE)
: New Support champion identity confirmed!
reworked to have 4 point and click roots?
: Difference between Aatrox and RIven?
riven requires animation cancelling and thus a bit of skill aatrox requires you to drool just a bit, "skilfully" out playing your opponent while dishing out tonnes of damage and having in built sustain within his kit so that it completely nullifies any sort of counter aggression. no idea why they add so much stuff to one kit.
Moody P (NA)
: and maokai, and cho'gath. Darius pick and win rate dropped like a brick in preseason 8 and it wasn't until conqueror that it returned to normal
he was buffed in 8.5 edit moakai shen and co had sub 50% winrate at the time as did ornn but he was broken at the time lets be honest about that, no clue about cho. Wasn't sion abusing comet at this time?
: Incoming Kayle rework.
would be surprised if they didn't turn her into a completely focused botlane AA APC with a lot of interaction with morgana similar to xayah and rakan

ADC sustain to high > Thornmail/bramble reworked > fucked AA bruisers in lane > > but lets not forget, him stirring up reddit was a major cause of conqueror getting added I mean to be fair, the game was in an even worse place prior to conqueror than it is now. Start of season 8 was horrible. The game needed to be changed, conqueror just wasn't a solution anyone wanted or asked for. Prior to conqueror being unveiled, everyone assumed the "bruiser keystone" was a revamped fervor for battle.
> I mean to be fair, **the game was in an even worse place prior to conqueror** than it is now. Start of season 8 was horrible. No it really wasn't, the two tanks that were played toplane were ornn and sion, Darius was the highest banned champ in 8.5. Yes start of season 8 was crap but that's more to do with them trying to balance runes during the season rather than preseason when they were added. Tanks were primarily played in botlane where conqueror would have no effect on them.
