: Why do people think KDA matters.... Show us your kill participation, damage to objectives, vision score, damage to turrets, turrets killed, wards destroyed, damage to champions....
KDA isn't the important bit here. It's that I had to go back to my OTP and tryhard to finally get another win under my belt, putting poor Urgit on the bench.
: Malicious Metal made Mordekaiser posts for months and everyone paid attention to those. Everyone except Riot, I mean.
Oh, they did pay attention to it. The things I suggested to change, like solo cast W, lower shield decay, more uses of E and a flattened out Q/dragon scaling were all things Riot changed in the following patches. Riot does listen but in the end what they do with the feedback is up to them.

: In before the remaining darkin are trapped in an oar and a mop. On a more serious note though something more unorthodox would be cool. A suit of armour? A chain? A tattoo? I might be stretching it a bit here.
Morde's armour is actually a darkin.
Saïx (OCE)
: switching it from NLR + NLR was not a good move imho
It never was two NLR. Back in the day it was just a blasting wand and a NLR Then again, NLR was 1600 gold.
: If a tank isnt a threat hes WORTHLESS. its why everyone hates ADCs. Ya cant tank someome that can just facetank you back with lifesteal.
A Tank's main threat is to provide disruption, CC and be tough to kill. There used to be a clear tradeoff between picking a Fighter or a Tank top lane, now with Tanks dealing strong damage too there's no real reason to picking a class that's balanced around providing damage. Tanks are just that, disruptors and meat shields, they should never, ever be picked for their damage.
: Seems fine to me. He isnt bursting anyone. Its sustained DPS which id by far the healtiest type of damage.
A tank shouldn't be providing sustained DPS. Period.
: >And who the hell was talking about Ahri, anyway? Why even bring Ahri up? What does Ahri have to do with anything? it's Ahris. Everything somehow is about Ahri.
Blasphemous. Everyone knows it's all about Mordekaiser. Duh.

: Rylais feels like a wasted slot
I don't even build it on Morde anymore. It feels awful to build and I feel I deal no damage if I don't rush something like an early Haunting Guise or a Gunblade.
: Just an FYI no one is going to play Malzahar after the next patch goes live
: he's a linear champ so his movements are very predictable in the late, it's either flash 3rd Q or just spam E on the front line. His dmg is one of the highest in all stages of the game but his massive weakness is his lack of mobility and the inability to build the only item that helps juggernauts {{item:3800}} What's worse is that his base stats are so bad like his HP and move speed. He has the highest ad in the game and at the same time has to go ap to be relevant rito plz
He has really high dual scalings, it makes him scale really well with levels. And he does not need to be in melee range to nuke a carry. Gunblade->E->R is enough to at least remove 80% of their hp. In a team fight he can just count on his team to finish 'em off if it's not enough. And in a 1v1 he can just proc Phase rush and run 'em down. He plays more like a battlemage than an actual Juggernaut anyways-

How could you? He'd probably be one of the coolest characters post-VGU. He's got a lot of untapped potential and with the recent Targon stuff we've gotten there's so much room to make him something more than just a 300's reference.

: The Next VGU after Irelia
Please let it be Pantheon.
: As a morde player i can say you're right. He either stomps lane cuz no one knows how he functions or he gets smashed hard that he gets TLS... he falls off rly hard late game for a champion who is supposed to be an adc
Well, his damage doesn't really fall off. It's rather his lack of agency in general that makes his late game extremely hit or miss.
DaCurtis (OCE)
: I don't know why everyone thinks Morde needs a VGU. There's absolutely nothing wrong with his kit or gameplay style.
Hey there, I'm the local Mordekaiser fanatic. 1.4 million mastery points. Diamond on two accounts. Mordekaiser needs a VGU because he has aged horribly. He lacks utility to fill the role of most Top laners and yet he's a bit too melee to function as a proper mid laner. He's balanced completely around dealing ridiculous damage and being tough to kill, both being closely related to each other. But the main reason why he needs a rework is that his kit is just too unhealthy for the game. He's horribly feast or famine and his laning phase offers little to no counterplay or interactivity to his opponent. His passive and ultimate in particular need heavy changing in order to fit into this game. He works, he's good in the right hands, but he's horribly designed.
sopnop (NA)
: But you seemed lonely over here.
: As much as I agree with this. It could just be cause he destroys riven. Like bad.
Jup. He works as a great riven counter pick. But he lacks the tools to actually function as a true top laner. He doesn't provide the bulk and utility needed and works better as his team's damage pump.
DaCurtis (OCE)
: I feel Morde's kinda the epitome of the current state of top lane. Really squishy and immobile, leading to tonnes of champions dancing around him.
Well, you're supposed to play him bot and mid then. I think Morde shouldn't be touched until he gets his VGU, he's extremely unhealthy and no fun to fight. At all.
sopnop (NA)
: I miss some of the old lore, In my opinion {{champion:28}} should have stayed as the most expensive assassin in Runeterra, Riot did alright by most of the other champs they've updated. {{champion:110}} makes me want to cry, I mean the lore for some of the champs was amazing and made me like them that much more, but please RIOT stop doing 180's on champs like {{champion:110}} and {{champion:28}}, it really subtracts on the champ for players like me that have been around for a few years, why not dig into the vaults of unreleased or uncompleted champs that are squirreled away and finish them with the new lore.

: Dear Narrative department
Out of all reasons to uninstall League it's the narrative team? Huh.
Insidious (OCE)
: Don't pitchfork me, I'm actually gay. I believe it's because they've completely butchered the previous lore without expanding on it. Varus was a character with a tragic background, who literally threw his own life away in order to seek vengeance on those who culled his family by memory. Now we essentially have a carbon copy of Kayn/Rhaast, throwing in LGBT into the mix for next to no reason. If Riot was looking for LGBT representation, Vi/Caitlyn would of been good to expand on, or even TF/Graves for fuck sakes, since they actually have some form of a basis for it. But completely taking a character that already had a perfectly fine lore and background and turning it into this convoluted mess is just tragic in itself. People have a right to be upset, LGBT should be represented naturally, not shoehorned in for a plot device on a characters lore. Homosexuality is a sexual preference, not a personality/plot device. Trying to shove that into people's faces, especially in a game that is renown for its toxicity and for the most part teenage/young adult playerbase that can be ridiculously immature at times, that's when people will get upset.
You could replace the two characters by literally any other combination of lovers and it'd work too. It's far from a plot device.
: Haven’t read the comic yet, but can I be upset that they walked right into “kill your gays” trope. First gay champion/couple and their relationship with each other is already concluded. I feel completely disappointed so far.
: Varus gets new lore and it's presented through a music video? [HEAVY BREATHING] [GONE SEXUAL]
Oh, wait. We got a canonically gay character who got more to him than being a token on a checklist? Blasphemous! On a serious note. This does make Varus so much more nuanced than the old one since now there are way more possibilities for further storytelling with the various aspects that make up this new entity.

A lot of icons share this problem and it's really triggering my OCD.

Okay, a few things to note: First off; This was a spontaneous idea after seeing how well Evelynn's glare aligns with the Diamond border and my name Second of all; This joke as been made countless of times in a multitude of ways, it's like the Jhin 4 meme And thirdly: This thread isn't even the same like yours. It has a different premise and doesn't have the context of a super sexualized Champion seemingly only having eyes for the glimmering gems of my profile I'm sorry if you feel like someone copied your thread, but I didn't even know you did a similar joke a while back.

: > I'm just sick and tired with people wanting to buff Morde out of the blue, even though he's in a decent spot and due to the nature of his kit he's not allowed to be ever really meta. Mordekaisers winrate has dropped to 48% this preseason. There's no doubt he's not getting any care this patch. >actually invest some time into learning to deal with his stats. Sure man. Play against a kennen or a jayce early game with press the attack on 25 armor and get back to me on that one.
Get back to me once you stop building Frostqueen's claim, Glacial augment and almost pure Tank on Mordekaiser. We Morde mains can be happy he didn't get the Poppy Treatment and was left in the gutter until he'll get his VGU. He's not in a spot to ever receive buffs so we should be happy for what we got. Besides, I think he's better with the new runes.
DaCurtis (OCE)
: Mordekaisers Base Stats - Stop leaving him in the dust Riot.
Mordekaiser does not need better base stats. If you give him higher defenses he'll just roflstomp any lane. Iron Man is what he's balanced around and playing around proper HP leech with his W/R and shield gen is what makes Morde basically immortal if you're good at him. I'm just sick and tired with people wanting to buff Morde out of the blue, even though he's in a decent spot and due to the nature of his kit he's not allowed to be ever really meta. Just wait for his VGU or actually invest some time into learning to deal with his stats.

: Battle boss morde,where he glitches through the game.
: I actually really like Varus being a darkin
Wrong. Most people actually theorized his bow being a Darkin but the man being retconned is what displeases most fans of the old Varus.
: Pantheon is so fun to lane against
I know it sounds like I'm just pushing my own agenda here but you should really give Mordekaiser a try. He hard counters pantheon with his Iron Man passive and outsustain's Panth's mana bar. And once he grows bored of chucking Q's and wants to all in he'll just get shredded.

I liked Blood magic kinda being like how Avatar's system works. With the most recent Haemomancer inheriting all the past knowledge, it did put its unique spin on the timeless vampire trope.

Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 22
Hey Meddler, can I ask what the reasoning behind giving Galio's W, his primary defensive spell, a base damage + 0.6 AP ratio while taking away power from his passive? Doesn't this change muddle the actual strategic value of his spells since he'd want to use all of them whenever they're up to maximize his damage output? I just don't see a reason behind putting damage on W since I always felt it was creating some nice strategic value simply by the nature of the damage reduction/CC aspect of it. Besides, I do not feel Galio struggles in terms of lacking damage, especially not scaling ones with his 400%ish AP ratios. From what I can tell, Galio simply falls flat early, before he's allowed to hit his power spikes? Anyhow, I'd like to get some context on these changes because I feel Galio does not need more damage to be put into his kit but rather needs his strengths/weaknesses to be more pronounced. Still, the fact that you're looking at Galio is great, he does need a bit of love as of late.
