They dodge bad match-ups. Maybe it counts as a loss, but for less LP lost? I dunno, I don't dodge.

Same here, on ARAM. Been playing all night, everything fine. Now, no game, no matter how much I restart client. But, the client claims I am in game, so doesn't give the reload option....

And increase the timer. You can't get the unit on the other side by walking around to avoid picking something else in time on first spawn. So you get some random other champ.
Rioter Comments
: why does kench have a high armor base?
Because he´s literally a counter to early burst/all-in AD champs? (Toplane) Because he needs to tank more monster damage because his clear is slow, so he needs the resists to survive? (Jungle) Because...he's slowed and will take free potshots when he's saving his carry and not having decent resists will make the ability redundant as he will just die? (Support)

Don't have that all that much tbh. Especially not as immobile tanky.

HA, yeah, Like that's going to matter to a tank. Riot has been treating most bruisers like a class that does not exist. Yes it matters. Because it basically means you need 2 armor items to do the work of one. And black cleaver is a debuff, it means their entire team ignores your armor. In a fast paced game where you might only get 2 full items as a non-fed (and you are, you are a tank) champ that means you need to chose between having half an armor item and something against the AP carries. Or just something against the physical damage dealers. Where you now effectively have 1 mitigating item by the time they have 3 damage amplifiers and fully stacked runes. And never mind you surviving long enough to set something up. Your carries get blown up so fast nowdays that they can't even react. Tank players dislike Rocket-tag. And that is what this game is becoming more and more.

Rioter Comments
: Are tanks in a terrible state?
Most people are gold or below. Most people at that elo either don't react fast/gauge a situation rapidly, don't trust their teammates or are too busy trying to get solo kills to follow a play. Tanks primarily engage, lock down, and survive long enough for their team to benefit. Nowdays, the tank is focused and killed before their team commits to the play. The enemy team still has everything on cooldowns, so there may still be a short advantage as you could trade a tank for a locked down carry. But then, why not just get another carry if a good play results in a 1 for 1 trade? If the team watches the tank gets blown up. They are likely to mistrust the tank from then on. A good pick looking like a bad play because of damage bloat and reduced fight times. Meaning they may leave the tank out to dry. Eliminating the entire fun of the tank role. Supportive plays, surviving when succeeding, even against great numbers.

He's talking about how dark harvest stacks are is too easy to get with a bit of poke. Suggested was increasing the difficulty of proccing it. I suggest lowering poke damage, which fixes both this specific issue, as well as more general issues (especially in ARAM).
: Lower Dark Harvest's health requirement to 40%
How about lowering poke damage instead?

It can be used as part of a 100 to 0 nuke combo when catching a squishy. Or depending on who it hits in teamfights, if any, it can zone, shred, kill or disable. It's really versatile in it's function. It's just that it's power is spread out over multiple functions so it lacks oomph. If it hits the tank, the tank doesn't care. But you can't tenacity a knock-up. So if they power through, they are leaving open a window for a diver to bypass em. If it hits a carry, they may need to play scared because of being low health, and they can't stay in the zone because if they get knocked up they are easy pickings. So it zones them out of the fight if done right.

That all just sounds like you personally find him annoying. Because he does things. While everyone else is saying he's uniquely great because he can do things. And what do you mean low-counter? He literally has to line up the minion-bowl. Don't line up with him. As for his Q, walk out of it. Spec movespeed if your champ lacks both it and dashes.
