In fact, you've kind of misunderstood the whole video. > > Core-A gaming's video about lowering the skill gap is about the lack of skill required in _inputs_. Not the lack of skill required because numbers are high/low. This misunderstanding might seem small but it shapes the entire video. The funny thing is Riot _has_ been guilty of this, but not in the case of the current meta. Namely the Alistar headbutt combo being reduced/allowed to be buffer so everyone can do it. > > The current meta, as much as people meme, still does require skill. An apt comparison would be if Zed, a champion most players hated, had his Q removed for homing shurikens that always hit the player and his E was replaced with a point-and-click shadow stab nuke. The _ability_ to perform the outplay is what matters, not _if the person lives or dies_. > > BONUS EDITS: Had to rewatch the vid because last time I watched it was when it came out. It highlights a clear point where pros want a system where comebacks aren't possible and skill triumphs over all....yet this contradicts what boards says that "games are decided early by who beats who first". Which means that this SHOULD be a meta that's boards approved. After all: The more skilled player wins on-average more in this meta. Actually you sir seem to be rather narrow minded. The video was about the "ease" of inputs to achieve success. You know what an easy input is on LoL? Hitting a 3k damage MF Ulti. Spamming a Vel combo that kills a 4k health tank. Spamming your r key in a teamfight until a knockup happens on Yas. (Quite a bit like clocking that Chun-Li combo ain't it?) The inputs are easier today than ever because guess what? There are far less of them. Team fights are beginning to boil down to positioning your mouse over the enemy team and spamming r-click QWER like it's going out of style. 1.5 second later the fights over and whoever did the most damage to their keyboard won. Also "The more skilled player wins on-average more" is a fucking terrible way to balance a game to be fun to play and watch. The more skilled player "nearly always" wins... should be the balance point to look for don't you think? Oh look guy X is better than guy Y. But only wins 51% of the time against him because he plays ADC and nearly half the games he got one shot by an assassin. He still wins more right? So he's climbing. Guess he has more time to spend browsing the cash shop.

Thats like saying ryze is bad because of his winrate. No. Ryze is completly busted and disgusting as ever. Yasuo loses laning phase 99% of the time except the special cases (like this one) when the ori plays it waaayy too wrong. Ori has a hard time solo carrying as she needs a team to function for her to carry Yas has an easier time carrying because he doesnt need teams as badly as ori does, believe it or not. Time to get downvoted for saying facts, cya later everyone
Okay kiddo, I am a platinum level player, so yeah low elo I guess. Just can't seem to win against a silver Yasuo. Time to go home.
: Orianna counters Yasuo.. She always wins against him.. Im 100% u played it bad
Okay, that's strange because Ori winrate vs Yasuo is at 49% while yas is at 51% so there goes that argument.

Judging from his other SJW tendencies he clearly thinks that making extreme attacks against people he disagrees with is okay, so it's pretty clear he was being snarky, and not genuine.

Okay I get where you are coming from, however like you said it was a heated argument so he reacted on impulse. So what does he have to do, admit he has an anger problem or he's an alcohol and all is okay? Because that's what the pro athletes do right? Admit some dumb shit and get on with it. About the SJW part, I've seen his other tweets that are about all kind of political and cultural topics and his comments and images are not really sophisticated or anything, on the contrary. If I look at his tweets he is everything but SJW. Maybe he is leftist but SJW, not sure. Also wasn't he against all women panels and stuff? Not a popular SJW mindset.
: The reason it's encouraging suicide is because DZK had no intention of going into a turbine himself, he was implying that people who disagree with him should do it. It's a roundabout way of telling people to kill themselves.
He is inviting people to it, I think this rather implies that he is going himself. The fact that he may or may not intent to do this himself is not clear.

It's a retweet of Chef Lu Bu basically inviting people into the turbine of a 747. Retweeting (as the word implies) is basically tweeting it yourself (while still giving credit to the original tweeter).
So this Chef Lu Bu, basicly facepalmed, and he facepalmed too, so basicly this: https://i.imgur.com/4s3lQwQ.gif

It's the least I could do. Honestly, I was largely frustrated with how people would dump hyperbole and bias on anyone who was trying to understand what was going on. The only way I could see to inform people and let them decide for themselves was to write as complete a post as I could on what happened and let them decide from there (or at least understand why people were upset). Personally, I think society as a whole isn't ready for Twitter. Users try to walk this tightrope between tweets being anonymous and representing who they are/who their employer is. It has cost a lot of people their jobs, and it will continue to cost people their jobs until either the platform changes or society figures out how to draw a clearer line.
Yes I must say it's been written very objectively. The problem is that we as a people cannot seem to handle too much freedom without supervision. We've proven that in history over and over again; look at the middle ages where people would burn someone to the stake, if only enough people yelled he or she was a witch/socerer. Without prosecution they would be killed by mobs of angry people. You would think that given our advanced civilization things would have been different, but with the coming of the internet, we've proven that we simply cannot handle it. In the past I was an advocate of keeping the internet absolutely and 100% free for the people to do as they like, but looking af how people simply comdemn others without any knowledge of facts, scares me. I mean Illegal downloading and illegal pornography are the tip of the iceberg. And places like Reddit and 4chan, prove that people need to be supervised. Take Facebook for instance. If someone would falsely acuse you of killing a puppy, people will actually end up in front of your door, ready to kill you, it actually happens.. No trial, no proof, just judgement based on nothing. So yes you are right, we are not ready and I fear we will never be ready to stand on our own feet without some kind of a big brother stepping in.

Maybe I am completely wrong again, but isn't they guy just saying in that retweet, come join my I'm going to kill myself or in other terms "I don't want to live on this planet anymore".. I mean in what possible way on this planet is this guy telling male gamers to kill themselves? Just.. How? I'm unsure how telling someone to go jump into a plane engine wouldn't be telling them to kill themselves. I may be no expert on jumping into plane engines, but I'm given to understand that it is a very fatal experience. I'm pretty sure the tune of everyone for it would change if it was about women.
So where did he say this exactly? Because it's not in the tweet. The tweet implies he is going to jump in hit himself and he wonders if anyone is going to join him. It's basicly nothing more than a facepalm.

: I need a captain on the DKZ/PAX story
BTW DrCyanide, thank you for your time, I see you took the effort for the topic of the timeline.

I mean in what possible way on this planet is this guy telling male gamers to kill themselves? Just.. How? I do think some posters twisted it into way more than it was (people calling it "gendercide" or whatever). The issue was this was below the standards Riot holds their employees to. Here's a Rioter basically repeating a joke to everyone he could tell it to that every man who disagreed with how a portion of PAX was handled should commit suicide via jet turbine. Riot fired Sanjuro for saying that Tyler1's lifestyle was going to lead to cancer and it would be a good thing, this is in the same boat. Riot may have been able to resolve the situation in another way, but it looks like they did end up firing him.
Boy, not to belittle the American people, but for the Land of the free, you guys have to really watch out for every single thing you say or do or it will cost you dearly. I mean what's freedom if you can't even have an opinion without being afraid to get sued or lose your job or whatever. Okay so he said something that was a bit dank, but to lose your seat at the table just for burping or farting once in a while seems to me to be more horrid than the actual fart itself. I think it's not in comparison to the Tyler1 thing either, that's whole different level. Again he might have also retweeted it as a "I don't want to live on this planet anymore, who's joining me?" message. Heck if he posted the "I don't want to live on this planet anymore"-meme people would probably get pissed because he implied that humans are unworthy to play games and should live on another planet. I'm exaggerating I know, but this just baffles me. The retweet button cost him his job and people actually feel like justice has been served.. What's next, some pro-streamer pings enemy missing after he scores an ace and he gets sued for slander? Someone kills Alistar in a Worlds event and PETA sends him death threats. Maybe the guy should play his Autismspectrum card so he can become a victim of this. F*ck, I sometimes have dreams of seeing spectacular places in the USA, but once I wake up I realize that it might now be as dreamy as it is on TV.

: Define "traditional."
A support that has mainly abilities to buff/boost/aid friendly players. To categorize Buff/enchanters {{champion:40}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} Guardians {{champion:201}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:223}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:44}} I might be missing some, but this seems to me to be the core.

: i really dont care much but i do have this to say {{champion:40}} Balance nightmare, litterally always good. 1 demotional and simple kits without delays or other mechanics are either garbage or god tier depending on whats meta but this champ nearly always has surpassed that. simple isnt better. its arguably always worst {{champion:117}} Balance nightmare as either to much damage and she is a top laner or to much utility and she turns ADC's into unstoppable kill monggers {{champion:267}} a mix of both lulu and janna but has delays and lower damage overall so she is atleast fair to play against even when she is strong {{champion:25}} morgana? a Traditional support? tfw you were nerfed outa midlane so hard people forgot you were one of the firsts there
I was doubting to put Morgana on the list, but because of her simplicity and utility toolkit I added her. Janna in my opinion has been mostly balanced, yes she has been in the God tier most of the past, but she is the epitomy of support if you ask me. Also this might sound ridiculous but Janna has a high skill cap when it comes to timing and decision making. Lulu had defintely had her ups and downs. Standalone she's not that great, but with for instance a Kog or Twitch, she can be a monster. Nami has been all around the tier list, but she's had her time to shine and she's personally my favourite support to play. I forgot one support though, shame shame shame. {{champion:37}}

: o.o I've never noticed this. But I don't think attacks making contact are supposed to sound sexy, especially since Evelyn is also about torture and causing grief to extreme extents. There's the seductive side, and then the side that revels/thrives in other people's pain and sorrow.
I agree, but then make it at least sound female and humanlike/demon like and not... well this..

: The %MR shred should be multiplicative (not additive) with Voidstaff - flat MR reduction should then be applied afterwards. More information here: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Magic_penetration
Yes I have seen this article several times, but where in the spectrum does shredding apply? Is it considered reduction?
