: Who is Morde Supposed to be good against?
Morde still counters a lot of champions mid lane, especially assassins, and exerts pressure through insane wave clear, dragon control and good rotations. You need to play to his strengths as a champion, which lie in brick walling mid, shoving waves, bullying certain matchups and working with his team to enable him. He needs a rework due to having literally no agency of his own but he does work in some ways.

: How come league lacks the most basic and popular archetype of character design?
: What's a beetlejuice?
: Mundo and Evelynn
Remember when Mordekaiser was a Sado-Maso centric character? Pepperidge farm remembers and so do I.
: "Going to get reworked soon" isn't an excuse for leaving an unfair interaction in the game.
It is. Look at old Poppy, Tryndamere, Pantheon and co. Also, this is not unfair, it's how his kit's supposed to work. Morde, as a Juggernaut, is supposed to thrive in fighting hordes of enemies due to his AoE feeding directly into Iron Man and Harvester increasing in potency the more enemy units are nearby.
: I missed that, a shame that apologies don't get the same visibility as offenses (this attempt on memeing the situation feels a lot lighter to me now xD). Can you guide me to where she did?
I think it was the top post in her reddit AMA if I recall correctly. Well, people like Drama and negativity always garners more attention than positivity, sadly. That's why there's always bad shit featured in "news" and the good stuff is just kind of accepted as such without dwelling on it. Still, in Frosk's case I think she handled the whole PAX situation way better than Daniel. Sure, she was passive aggressive but she kept it at that instead of, well, we all know how that went down.
: She's been a lot vitriolic during the PAX thing.
And she apologized for it. Frankly, her attitude towards a rather large part of the League player base is very unprofessional but then again, can't change people's opinions, so...

That's the intent. * Edit: Oh sorry chap I didn't reply to your "working as intended" bit. There's the cherry picking! Shame on me! Anywho, as I've said in every other reply saying the same thing, yes, it is actually working as it was coded to work. Anything non-minion is supposed to work. But I'm fairly certain that it was never meant to be abused on pets in laning phase. Afterall, in the jugg update he was designed to be a duo laner and not a top laner, where Yorick was put. I'm sure they knew it worked in Zyra's matchup too and I really can't say why they let that one through. * All speculation on my part as for whether or not it's intended. Regardless of that intent though, we should be able to clearly just look at the images in the OP and decide for ourselves like self-thinking human beings whether that's okay or not. > [{quoted}](name=Malicious Metal,realm=EUW,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=rWvcm15R,comment-id=001f,timestamp=2018-10-09T20:21:59.513+0000) > > So no, let's not change this for no real reason at all. > > Besides, Morde's gonna get reworked soon and his play rate is so abysmally low that there's no reason at all to even try changing this interaction. I can think of one reason. And so can the original post. * Edit: Additonally, low playrate or "soon™ to be reworked" is not a valid reason to not fix a (imo) broken interaction. Edit: I put your entire comment in there. Happy? "Cherry picking". I didn't even change my words in this, same responses, bigger block quotes. Whoopdeedoo.
You just cherry picked half of my reply. Great discussion. 10/10
: Aight Morde players, I'ma need you to be reasonable for a second
Its's working as intended. Any other minionmancer gets to have their stuff not count as lane minions so these kinds of interactions are completely justified. If you changed this for Yorick you'd have to rework the entire interaction with zyra plants, malzahar voidlings, tibbers and co. So no, let's not change this for no real reason at all. Besides, Morde's gonna get reworked soon and his play rate is so abysmally low that there's no reason at all to even try changing this interaction.

Rioter Comments
: Lore is just a popularity contest with a little character concept mixed in.
: Mordekaiser has been referred to before as a "dread revenant" and "dread sorcerer". Ochnun, "the language of the dead" sounds like something his liches would speak when casting spells to resurrect him. Unless it's some other powerful undead entity with servants out to restore it to life, I don't see how "dread lord" would be a title given to anyone but Mordekaiser.
I really want Riot to explore the entire cult that formed around Mordekaiser a bit more. Hell, his Liches are just discount Nazgûl at this point and I'd rather see them being expanded on a bit more
: this line from the {{champion:81}} story is making me hope for {{champion:82}} vgu ''The dread lord will rise again''

I dig Diamond but the rest's...kinda bland? They need to be shinier and they all need a secondary colour, they simply lack the grandeur of the current emblems. Gold really, really needs its red back.

Honestly, I miss those days of yore. The boards were a lot less toxic back then and there was something resembling a community. Nowadays it seems like everyone's just an isolated salt-miner who comes here to vent their frustration with the game.

Or he is really named Mordekaiser? I don’t why i think Mordekaiser fits better as a nickname or title. It's a name, because they call him the revenant or dreadlord, not "the Mordekaiser."
That's **IRON** Revenant, thank you very much. Dreadlord though? We haven't gotten any piece of lore calling him that.
: I was always curious: is Mordekaiser a nickname and we just don’t know his real name in the same vain as Khada Jhin being a nickname? Or he is really named Mordekaiser? I don’t why i think Mordekaiser fits better as a nickname or title.
I think it might not really be his true name but a moniker he chose after setting out to conquer the known world. Hell, wouldn't put it beyond him to actually have taken up the title his enemies might have given him. Or who knows, maybe his true name's Mordecai and he decided to make it sound more intimidating.
: I thought it was Death King in German or something, Morde Kaiser?
Mordekaiser literally translates to Murder Emperor Mord(e) is Murder while Kaiser means Emperor.

While Q could've been cool, the rest of the kit simply does not fit Mordekaiser, at all. W fits with him being a master of metalmancy and being able to summon infernal chains sounds like it fits Mordekaiser pretty well. His R fits with him being this menacing giant, striking fear into those around him and towering over everyone else. The revive aspect fits with him being this immortal warlord during his time as the ruler of the Immortal Bastion. The only thing that doesn't fit is the E, although he is the leader of the Shadow Isles, so it makes sense he knows some shadow magic to teleport around the place (based on the name of the ability, **Umbral** Dash.)

Yet that kit's entirely devoid of his core themes of soul enslavement, necromancy and all the things currently being important to what makes Morde, well, Morde.

Being able to acknowledge something to be aesthetically pleasing isn’t a sign of being attracted to said thing. But for some people they’re one and the same thing apparently.

I’m queer too and commenting on someone’s attractiveness isn’t a sign of being homosexual. Got plenty of friends who regularly do that and they’re all straight as an arrow.

Yes, me, me! How powerful is Dragon Knight Mordekaiser really? Also, what is his backstory? We do know current Morde's origin but what's the story of the Dragon Knight who sought to corrupt the dragons? And thirdly; Is he more of an independent player, where does he stand in the grand scheme of things compared to the Dragon Master (Who ironically seems to be a mere pawn to the Dragons), the Sorcress, the Slayers and the Trainers? And finally; Any favorite Mordekaiser skin and your personal headcanon on the Skin's lore?

: Corki is currently in Piltover... so that's the place he's defending from the air (Although, it's not clear WHAT he's defending it from...) I'd say the thousands of miles of contested independent states are probably a much larger reason that Noxus can't invade Demacia directly (YET. We'll get them in the end!) But Demacia certainly does use its raptors to move quickly over the mountainous areas on its borders - there's not going to be infinite numbers of them, though. We could be talking about a dozen, or fifty, or a hundred. Not enough to turn back the Trifarian Legion before someone shoots them all down, at least! :-)
I feel a certain someone's gonna be pretty happy with the two factions decimating each other's forces either way.

No bugfixes needed if you just delete his entire code.
