He actually inherently outdamages Fiora, simply because she's squishy and he's not.
: This makes me very uncomfortable Riot...
To be fair, saying he is going to do this and that doesn't mean it will actually happen. Are you sure any one Rioter has that much power within the company? Wouldn't it require quite a bit of work to specifically single out a player - especially if said Rioter isn't part of the support team? Now i have no proof but i really think this person is just talking shit with no grounds to back it up. Reminds me of "my dad owns Microsoft" back in Xbox Live. Now if something unjustified actually happened i think that could be considered corruption, and said employee should be temporarily suspended without pay.

: Morde sitting at 70% ban rate, 13% pick rate, and 56% WR even with 0 expereince on him
Well for one his armor is WAAAAY overboard. We're talking pyke level base armor - on a champion with high base health, an in-built %max hp scaling shield and core build with items that ALL provide health. He's literally designed to outstat everyone.
: This isn't a criticism (at least i wouldn't call it as such) but this entire comic has been fairly stagnant, in terms of illustrative design. Of course, the inter-relationship/drama isn't stagnant but this is a comic, for such a medium I'd have thought they'ed utilize the full capacity of dynamic illustrations and eye-catching visuals, obviously intermingled with the plot at hand. This hasn't been that so far it's been mostly enclosed, gloomy, interior environments and ad-nauseam dialogue. Which leaves me to wonder why this particular story couldn't have been a written novella instead, would have about the same impact. Then if they're going to do a Demacian focused comic, they could've set it amongst this apparent 'mage rebellion' that was hyped with Sylas' teaser but never overtly delivered on.

I’m not surprised by that. We haven’t actually been given a lot of storytelling about what it’s like in Demacia, not in detail. It’s always been about their militaristic and prejudiced society rather than the cities themselves or the people. I remember reading a short story not too long ago that was fantastic in this regard. Something about a demacian captain meeting a mage envoy from the Freljord anf having her world view turned upside down.

: this is just coming off as plain ol' salt man you lost and are trying to blame something, it's natural (ish) no, the jungler will never be punished for choosing to duo with top and win the game, to suggest so is just ridiculous

Is that what you're saying? Because that's what happened in both these games. The jungler was assigned jungle, played top lane the entire game, one won the game and the other lost. So that's fine? I can just go top regardless of what my team says?
: Assassin mains are the most respected people in this game.
: Not actually reportable. There aren't set restrictions for what a jungler *has* to do, and if a team wants to forgo one for some strategic reason it seems fine. In this case it appears that Amumu had a plan, made it work, and won the game off of it.

In this case it appears that Amumu had a plan, made it work, and won the game off of it. But what if it didn't work? What if, say, something similar happened the next match and their team lost because of it? And yes, i say BECAUSE of it - the enemy bot laners were winning pretty hard, and the enemy mid laner was 30 cs ahead of their lane opponent. Then our Khazix jungle got level 6, ganked mid, took mid turret, took drake, ganked bot, took bot turret and the game was essentially over in the span of 70 seconds. All the while the enemy premade top/jungle shouts "report X" because they werent able to hold their lanes against 4 players from our team, while i just farmed safely under my turret. My point is this looks to me like the exact same problem as Singed / Nunu support with smite. They are assigned one role and then they basically play a complete other role, and both players were banned despite having a positive winrate with this - because their strategy crippled their own teammates.

They DID win, although all their other laners (mid/bot) were super far behind and had gotten crushed in their own lanes. They basically suffered through 25 minutes without a jungler before winning. I had a similar situation in my most recent game, that we ended up winning because the duotop strategy backfired. The enemy lee sin essentially lost his team the game by playing duotop and putting his darius so far behind in exp and gold they couldn't even 1v2 me in lane. We got all the drakes as well as two baron buffs and just ran it down mid, ending the game after an ace with 0 casualties on our side. It's not about winning or losing - it's about the jungler refusing to play jungle and instead playing duotop with a premade, robbing their team of the most valuable role in the game.

Zeanix (OCE)
: Auto Chess is now coming to league
I remember hearing about this auto chess thing and thinking it sounds utterly stupid. I've never had any interest in it myself as frankly, "auto" sounds like one of those "idle" games that play themselves (i respect that people enjoy this but i personally find it utterly r%%%%%ed and taking away the only meaning behind "video game" over "movie") and chess is extremely boring to me. Since it's League of Legends (something i know very well) i am mildly intrigued, but i am extremely put off by both "auto" and "chess". I really hope i'll be pleasantly surprised and proven wrong in my prejudice, because i really wish for more fun minigames built around the league of legends universe.

: I truly think lane rengar is just too oppressive
I forgot perhaps the most notable counterpicks: {{champion:2}}. Without ignite, NOBODY beats Olaf at level 1. {{champion:78}} Dont die early game. You naturally outscale Rengar, not to mention you'll outsustain him if you use your passive efficiently. Ward the bush he's sitting in and wallbang him every time it's off cooldown, then use your W to prevent him from jumping you while you back off. Once you get a sunfire cape he can't even hurt you.
: I truly think lane rengar is just too oppressive
I haven't seen lane rengar in a couple months now. Try playing champions like {{champion:98}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:6}} {{champion:266}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:54}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:33}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:27}} {{champion:223}} {{champion:106}} {{champion:62}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:36}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:79}} {{champion:120}} {{champion:75}}, they make Rengar very sad.

Riot has only nerfed it's damage, not it's resistances or duration. (After the first pass like half a year after it's release) Aftershock will always be an excellent defensive rune for champions with easy cc access. Diana, Lissandra, even Shyvana - they all benefit immensely from this rune due to having few better options. I still run aftershock on Urgot from time to time if i'm uncertain about matchups like Jax, Fiora and Irelia. Aftershock users run it for it's defensive benefit - you make up for the lack of a damage rune through item build.

: Being flamed by High Elo players because of rank.
First of all, gold, plat and diamond are not “high elo”. diamond is the floor of the “mid-elos”. Secondly, anyone that thinks their rank makes them special are low elo. Rank fluctuates rapidly and you climb up and down thousands of time in a year. Unless you’re challenger there is ALWAYS thousands of other people just like you. Mute anyone toxic and report them after the game. These are random strangers you will never meet more than once (unless you play at like 4 am and queue up again instantly).

Yeah, i miss those too.

I certainly hope so. It doesn't work that way against most modern assassins - {{champion:245}}, {{champion:141}} and {{champion:105}} all delete your carry straight through your shield and despite your healing. They'll typically be dead before your ult finishes channeling.
: Taric counters AD assassins like Qiyana
I loved reading this, but as a Taric main i think Qiyana is going to have very little trouble. Low coodown, high base stats, high mobility and a whole lot of crowd control - Taric is prone to getting cc'ed, and he needs to be able to strike something to refresh is absurdly long cooldown, high mana cost abilities. I think you'll want to play an enchanter like Karma to deal with Qiyana. She can't turn invisible while bound by Karma, and Karma provides both shields and movement speed to help outmaneuver her. (Or at least force her to flash in for the kill.) If all else fails, there's always Shen.

Because she already embodies many of the traits Qiyana does, while doing everything right about personality - she looks interesting, her personality is interesting and her gameplay is interesting. Everything about her sticks out as unique - unless you're looking at that abomination of a skin line that is IG, you'd NEVER mistake her for any other character in the game. Despite having similar colour schemes to Riven and a similar gameplay pattern to Fiora, they are sufficiently distinct you'd never mistake either of the two. Qiyana could have been a skin for Sivir. She looks like what i'd imagine Cassiopeia used to be before her transformation. Hopefully she'll have something special for her gameplay, or it'll be Riot's greatest failure since Aatrox's initial rework. Also, let's be real - that hairstyle looks like something on a Lux-type mage. It's very hard to imagine this lady being an assassin - never mind how impractical the hair would be to move around with, it looks like a wig that'd go flying off if she walks too fast.

God that effect bothers me despite not being epileptic at all.

The hair and face just ruins the whole character to me. YAAAAWN another generic {{champion:15}}.

If you want to see unique and interesting character done RIGHT, look at {{champion:164}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:518}}. I’m sad to be so negative but this champion has NOTHING to make you go “i relate to this and want to play it.” She’ll be rolling off her gameplay alone.
Rioter Comments
: I received a death threat from a post I made here in Player Behavior
For a couple years now i’ve been saying gold players are just silver players with a shiny ego. Frankly, there’s shockingly little difference between silver players and platinum players - it’s only once you get to diamond 3 + you reach the very bottom of the “skill ladder”. Of course, you have to first get out of low elo to actually be able to see the differences. I’m sorry you were so unfortunate as to encounter some of the human sewage drawn to League. Let’s hope Riot brings in pest control so that you can come back to normal quickly.

At engaging? Yes. But i wasn't speaking of engaging only. Neeko's ultimate is a "click button to solve problem" - it's superior to Amumu's ult because it's just as good for offense as it is for defense. Enemy lands cc on you? Ult. Enemy tries to run away from you? Ult. Engage on enemy? Ult flash. Enemy comes towards your unwarded bush? Ult. Impending teamfight? W Ult. Amumu's ultimate is really only good when he has the initiative, and it has a very long cooldown to offset its utility.
