: Gutting Ardent Is The Healthiest Thing Done In Awhile
I'm so glad this is over. I've never had less fun playing League of Legends thanks to e-girling Supports picking Lulu, Sona, Janna and Soraka. Look, I think these are cool characters, but not if every existing piece of shit in this community abuses them hard for LP. It's NOT fun to win bot lane, push them to their turret with lane dominance and still lose EVERY game because that's the whole niche of Enchanters, camping behind turret until they're full gear or have an ultimate to heal and shield away every potential threat. Please never make this come back, or at least gut flat values of shields and heals and add AP-scaling to them so Supports can go full squishy AP Support, shield for much but die in one hit.

No I want more Poro King and Fart Star, my favorite game modes. Dark Star is like a shittier version of Stitches Pool Party, I like playing modes that are unfunny as hell!
: Yet again in 2017, C9 is NA's last hope
I never believed in TSM. I don't believe in any fratboy teams in the first place in this LCS. You have the bonding groups that hold together and then you have this money trash that's bought into the teams. All these teams that break up the moment they lose at a tournament don't deserve a tournament victory in my opinion. They lack the heart and teamwork to get it going.
: Can we please ban boosters/customers
Lmao pussyass rules on this board. People are spitting on your game, shitting on your playerbase and the players are not allowed to shame them? Weakass shit.
: Riot's balance team, you need to reconsider your direction .
I'd love a World's patch that makes the meta shit. It would put to show how many teams can't win without cheesing it because they're not out for a humble victory but a pathetic meta stomp. Brings me all the way back to that LCS Cho'gath clip where he basically just OS'd an ADC with his ultimate thanks to Stoneplate.

Nerf Janna's flat shield and AD-buff value by 50%, increase her AP-scaling by 50%

: There is a good reason why AD are crowding out AP champions in mid lane
What, so the problem is itemization? I don't think it's that at all. It's the fact that viable mid lane mages are currently characters that have reasonably large cooldowns on their spells, whereas an ADC has no cooldown on a basic attack. There's also a reason Lucian and Corki of all people are viable in mid, because they bring mobility that most mages apparently can't deal with. Dunno, I think you'd be very pleased to try Annie against mobile mid ADCs. Get them fucked up with your Auto-hit stun, then follow up with an ignite W R combo. I would complain about Midlane ADCs if they were actually OP, but it's not their fault that their opposing laner picks shitpicks against a mobile ADC, like Orianna and Syndra.

: Janna has 32% pickrate and 57% winrate and 16% banrate.
PLEASE stop nerfing Janna. Seriously, how much more do you want to gut her? It's NOT Janna, it's the shitty itemization that Riot shoves down our throats. Janna is NOT responsible for Redemption and Locket of the Iron Solari. These items need to be gutted, not the champions that use them. Otherwise, if you think Janna needs stat nerfs, I'll throw you a bone: Increase all of AP scaling on her skills by 50% and nerf her flat stats then, but STOP nerfing Janna in every single aspect. I haven't seen a Janna in my elo for so long because all she's good at now is warding and using items. The ult is barely good at this point against a variety of characters that have spellshields attached to their build and her shield is a complete joke. It can barely defend a turret which used to be the best thing about Janna. Now it no longer is. If you think Janna is overpowered you probably also think that it's unfair that Lulu can polymorph hypercarries.
Rackier (NA)
: Everyone has the right to have an opinion, no matter the elo
That REALLY depends on the subject. I'm Gold myself and I understand that some things that Challengers understand may not be things that I understand in the same way. Universally, someone might say Yasuo is overpowered and people that frequently deal with the character because they don't ban him on their elo will say that he isn't and disagree because of your rank.
awdaf (NA)
: Please give us an option to vote to disband lobby so we don't have to dodge.
The problem is that you can't implement that because your everyday dicksuckers would vote to disband the lobby everytime something happens they don't like, so you'd never get to play the game. Yasuo not banned and picked? Disband. Didn't get Jungle and threatens to troll? DIsband. Such a system would give any smelly fuck unnecessary power over their team to hold them hostage.
SanKakU (NA)
: Well, they changed the way Locket works so that it's more of a tank's item, but in any case you make a fair point that the enemies would take damage from Redemption if you time it well enough if they want to benefit from staying alive. Did you buy some big ticket health item like Warmog's Armor I wonder?

Did you buy some big ticket health item like Warmog's Armor I wonder? I rushed no tank items that had no active effects. I started with Redemption, went right into boots after Redemption rush and upgraded my Sightstone to ruby so the cooldown goes off quicker. It's a really good build to try out but it's super complicated to utilize because your teammates are gonna panic flash out of a teamfight and completely make your plan go to waste.

: Well, for one thing IIRC, Kindred gets knowledge of where the marks are before the opponents do. So if you're quick enough, you can take care of the mark and get out before the opponents even knew there was a mark in their jungle. Use that to your advantage. Maybe levels in your ultimate should increase the timer for between Kindred getting mark display and opponents getting mark display. In any case, Kindred probably does need some big changes. I'm curious how the new healing power items would work on him. Won't they let him potentially heal the opponents for more than usual?

I'm curious how the new healing power items would work on him. Won't they let him potentially heal the opponents for more than usual? Funny enough, I played Support Redemption Locket Kindred today to find out if that is actually a viable choice mid to late game. We got completely stomped early because of Nami, but Kindred actually heals splendidly if you trigger your ultimate and Redemption a few moments later. Though important here, Kindred for some very stupid reason actually disables healing on all characters within the circle if they drop to 10% health, so you need to trigger Redemption about halfway in so Kindred's ultimate heals your teammates and Redemption then pushes another heal in. It's super useful in a teamfight because your enemies are going to stand in the Redemption field that's also your ultimate and completely lose the trade if everything goes correctly. At the end of the effect everyone is healed, except your teammates are healed for more and the opponents potentially lose 10% of their max health in true damage. But yeah, aside from that Kindred Support is utter trash. It might just be the fact that we had Nami on bot lane which was pretty much an auto-loss for anyone who doesn't have CC, but we did decently in mid game.

Dunno whatcha mean fam If you main something, you can get far with anything. I've seen good Urgots make it to high levels, but needless to say they handicap themselves. Your friend could probably be Diamond 1-2 if Kindred wasn't so bad right now. Also taking into account that he probably doesn't always get Jungle or might not play Kindred because he isn't in the mood. Kindred could do better, and outside of using her ultimate smartly she lacks everything else. I mean for starters, you already have an ADC sitting on botlane who will have an easier time getting fed up than her, so I don't know what to make out of Kindred aside from being a semi-decent damage dealer with a useful ultimate but terrible kit in all other aspects.

: How is 90 seconds hard to deal with? Literally if you play safe and farm under tower the trap will expire and she'll have to put a new one down in its place. Seriously people need to stop blaming CHAMPIONS and start blaming THEMSELVES. Cait isn't even strong after the attack speed nerf, she's B tier at best. You're just getting outplayed and crying to riot about it.

Cait isn't even strong after the attack speed nerf, she's B tier at best. You're just getting outplayed and crying to riot about it. Your username describes what playing against Caitlyn feels like. Besides that I think her stupid fucking traps shouldn't be invisible behind turrets. Caitlyn players intentionally put her trap right above the turret because your camera can't spot it through turrets. If they're visible traps, they should be visible regardless of what blocks sight of it, a champion, a minion, a turret, anything. If Cait's trap is covered up by something, it should have a glowing outline that's visible through walls and objects.
: I think I finally realized I am done with the game.
I feel you. I used to main Janna and really enjoyed full AP Ardent Censer Mejai Rabadon builds, and then Riot decided to be a bunch of jerks and nerf Mejai downright badly for Supports. Not just that, but they also took Janna's flat stats away and didn't compensate by giving her more AP scaling. I'm not saying she wasn't pretty OP, but her playstyle was completely gutted into a linear buildbath because of those nerfs.
: I think the Blackout passive on Duskblade is too strong
I wish it would just warn the user of wards, not actually reveal them. You're an assassin, not your team's clean up guy. Kinda like Eve has a red exclamation mark above her head. And it's only getting worse once the Rune system arrives. Zombie Ward, I needn't say more.
: Anyone else notice just how many items are directly tied to champions?
{{champion:57}} {{item:3751}} Perfect ~~burning~~ match! ~~to throw on Maokai~~ {{champion:99}} {{item:3142}} Origin match for those who get it.
: Stop holding games hostage
I always hold people hostage in games if they feed hard without excuse. Sucksuo with 0/10? Fuck you buddy, you're gonna sit in this game until our Nexus is down because you're not learning the lesson from surrendering once you messed up. If you're responsible for the game loss, you're going to sit down and live through it.
: Funny how people keep saying ADCs are the ones bitching when literally every time I check on the boards I see "Lifesteal too stong!" "ADCs abuse lethality!" "ADCs have too much burst!" I swear to god the Boards are just one giant circlejerk about how op ADCs are and how {{champion:82}} needs a rework. Just stop... clearly if Riot gave a fuck about how op ADCs are they would do something about it already. They've had a year of people complaining about ADCs and I dont see any change. Meanwhile people don't bother to build some damn armor.

: WTF are you talking about. Getting an excecute with cho ult is completely skill depended and if you die to it you would have had to be outplayed HARD!
Sweep brush, flash from brush, W, Ult. Skill.
: 60% winrate in the jungle atm
It's a pretty simple reason, really. He casually wanders through the Jungle with full E upgrade, gets himself some nasty stuff like Hydra and just eats himself up to max stacks using his jungle before he starts terrorizing actual champions. Since he no longer loses Stacks it's like going up against a Jungle Nasus who is actually reliable. And then the cancerous Stoneplate interaction that makes me question what the fuck True damage even is. So if you have the Mountain Drake without minions, you deal REDUCED true damage, but Cho'gath deals FULL true damage with an item applied to himself that cuts damage by 60%? Please tell me he doesn't deal FULL true damage because that can't be possible. How can Riot introduce a feature called 'reduced true damage' and not apply it to that Stoneplate?
: I never liked that they made cho damage scale with health
Cho got a ton of buffs recently and it's annoying. Like... stop Riot. This shit just doesn't work out, so stop. There is a reason he isn't played, he ISN'T a little baby that needs a pat on the back, he's a freakish harlequin baby with cancer that needs the bullet for good. He is a mana-reliant toplane AP Tank freak that needs to invest into mana AND health which substantially just doesn't work out for him because he doesn't have the best itemization. He can pick between AP and Health, AP and Mana, AP and Armor, Mana and Armor or Mana and Health, but not anything reliable like Mana, Armor and Health. Just quit trying to make him better, you're just bullying people that already struggle with good Cho'Gath matchups and only so he gets more playtime. Accept that his kit is a hit-or-miss desaster that's stronger if your opponent doesn't know how to deal with you and absolutely useless if they know how to dick around with you. I want to see Cho come back into the meta, but not the way you people at Riot Games do it. You're just making him stronger and stronger until he's so busted in stats and effects that his terrible kit is balanced out by flat stats. Rework him, try to make his Q more appealing than "Knock up that can win you the trade if you ever land it".
: Please, do not buff Kayn, Do not "Ivern" him
Do not buff ANYTHING about Kayn. He's a problematic, FAR too good Jungler that can clear camps insanely quickly and recover chunks of health from his AoE spells. Do NOT buff this guy Riot, or I'm done playing. You did this to Ivern, he started counterjungling without counterplay and then you gutted his good aspects instead of tweaking the bad aspects. Kayn doesn't need any substantial buffs, he just needs some playtime invested into him. Give it a month or two, then do something.

Maybe it wasn't the best idea to make the best Jungle tank "have more use for his skills aside from W and E".
: i think nasus is held back by the strength of wither
Haha, it's not OP in lane? I beg to differ. Nasus initiating ganks with a 5 minute slow is anything but balanced. It's only been so unheard of recently because most Junglers are currently tanks that can't help Nasus.
Rioter Comments
: Do any other Jungle Mains just HATE doing Krugs?
Krugs and Raptors both suck now. They reinforced an unhealthy early game/tank Jungler meta that destroyed the same champions as usually. Jungle is turning more and more into a niche, repetitive role rather than a creative and interactive one. You used to just do camps as you thought would be okay for you, but now people intensively think off Jungle routes just because of how terrible some camps are. Raptors are by far the worst, because you miss out on a lot of EXP just because you're 'not a Jungler that's supposed to do the Raptor camp'. Fuck that.
: Where does Kayn like to eat?
Thought this would be a KaynFC Joke
: Most of your suggestions are just plain unreasonable.
That's why I made multiple suggestions, at least one of them would be reasonable for Riot to implement. It's either her traps or her damage in general that needs to be put into the right place.

Worst design to hit the rift in my opinion. They should have known better. We have so many concepts that aren't real yet, but we got a Scythe-using Darklord instead? And on top of it, his gameplay is a complete lustlacker from what I've seen. His Ultimate is 'kind of unique' but the rest of his kit makes me wonder why I shouldn't just play another champion instead. I'm still waiting for a Support that can buff Lifesteal or a Tank that can transfer all incoming damage of his designated partner to himself for 4 seconds. Really, anything that can help Supports enchant more instead of generic Shieldvalues and bonus damage.

: Why did Rito change Maokai and Nautilus, only to make Galio do what they originally do?
New Maokai is great, I don't get the problem. You hide in brush, wait for somebody to come, use ultimate, bind them with W before they can flash or run out of it, hit them with your ultimate root, position behind them, Q to push them into your teammates, dead. Also Saplings in brush for pentakills
