Yara0 (NA)
: The games become exhausting to play almost like its a chore rather then a game
Take a break. I've taken an extended OW break since the support meta is Mercy only and I hate that character.
: Shen Vs Yorick?
Shen thrives if he keeps the fight going, means more shields and more energy. As a plus Yorick's pretty slow so he can get reliable empowered Q procs. Sunfire/Titanic Hydra'll help you deal with his minions, and I'm pretty certain Shen's W also blocks their autos. If you haven't tried it before take Fervor on Shen instead of Grasp, ups his dueling since he's all about the attack speed.
: What if Eve's charm charge-up was lower if she was out of stealth?
Because they can see the bewbs and get charmed quicker? I understand. Gameplay wise it'd probably be sort of contradictory since it would encourage players to not be stealthy I feel, probably push her further towards being a tanky CC bot instead of setting up her charm and sneaking around the battlefield.
ToolooT (NA)
: Why is no one talking about Tristana?
I remember a couple of months ago when she was the lowest win rate ADC, then suddenly people were complaining about her non-stop and she got a high win rate.
: Will Swain keep hs raven joke?
Think logically for one se- CAW CAW, CAW
SwineTV (EUW)
: Why is Lissandra so unpopular?
She's theoretically the perfect mage for me, but something about her just feels really clunky and off. Most of the time I feel like combos boil down to Ryze-ing the keyboard and hoping they die.
: Obligatory 'Voxus Samus' SoundCloud link: https://soundcloud.com/league_of_legends/voxos-samus It's a VERY fitting and ominous, epic track. TL;DR, it was a _maybe_ theme meant for the Tyrant Swain skin release, because of when it was uploaded to both the composer's YouTube page (he works/worked for Riot), and the official Riot SoundCloud account linked above. It was never officially used in anything, but the title translates to 'Voice of the Usurper/Conqueror', the timing when it was uploaded just seems right, and it is tagged 'Login Music'.

This is a bit of League history I never knew even existed! Very interesting indeed, and along the right track :P

I could imagine him seeing through his crows to watch people, that would suit him :P

: What are your most beloved and most hated skins?
Most of the expensive skins with new voice overs annoy me, since to sort of justify their cost they never stop talking ever. Star Guardian Jinx anyone?

Kiriyago (NA)
: [Poll] Hardest Role in the game
Jungle and ADC. Jungle for all the map awareness, ADC because everything is designed to murder you. The amount of ADCs I've pummeled with my Taric just goes to show. Top and mid are easy mode, less factors to worry about and their champions tend to have all the fancy schmancy damage, mobility and survivability to keep themselves safe. Support's the middle ground.
Sheder (EUNE)
: Taric Buff and Skin!!!
He doesn't need any stat changes, last tweaks he had fixed his issues. I'd like a Warden skin though.
: I called it: the new champion is a kawaii anime magical girl.
We've had so much anime this year, please don't be anime. Things can be light hearted and playful without being anime.
: I lose Faith in Riot... Not prioritizing HIGHLY REQUESTED VGU'S and they're not loyal to their words
The roadmap says that the next new champion's gonna be bubbly and non-edgy, and Evelynn just got reworked and she's a jungler.
: We got the Champion Roadmap guys!
I'll be honest, I got a bit of a flutter seeing that Swain picture. THAT was the style I was looking for :P
iLBGAMing (EUW)
: The only rework that worked out well
: I'd really like to see Ascension become permanent, like a new Dominion queue.
Ascension/Dominion are still my favourite game modes, much more lively and exciting, and on top it lets you try out new strategies and champions that you'd never see in SR. Doubt they'll ever move it out of an occasional RGM thing though, what with them dumping Dominion even when it had a small but dedicated competitive community.

I agree, the thing that throws me is when he dismounts. Apparently he can get 70% of Skaarl's health back by recharging the courage bar, but I find this very difficult to do. Plus there are weird little bits to his kit that are either bugs or unknown features, like you can go through terrain on the follow up E dash chasing after someone, but not on the first dash. Your ult can't naturally go through terrain, but if someone flashes and you ult after them, apparently you can, when you're dismounted off of Skaarl apparently you can get in a Q shot before you even land, weird shit like that.

The E thing is intentional as far as I'm aware, as for his ult... It's pretty weird and uncooperative, but generally speaking if the attack bit of it locks on you'll follow them to the ends of the earth like a Vi ult :P It really takes a lot of work to adapt to being dismounted and balance aggression properly to nail the clutch mounts. Probably best to focus on playing it passive for now and rack up CS, since taking a minion restores a bit of courage. Building some resistance and life steal could also help in staying alive when you're dismounted. Don't underestimate the power of Kled's W when it comes to stacking courage, that mixed with a point blank pistol shot on an enemy champion can restore a hell of a lot of courage in a small time.
Weedbro (NA)
: Kled! What do you think of Kled?
He's a modern take on what I call a "slogger", which is a bulky, survivable, approachable and reliable right clicker a la Xin Zhao and Irelia. He's got a few more interesting dimensions on top to make him stand out and have clearer moments of power while still being able to slog quite well.
GoatPope (NA)
: how hard is it to detect zero damage, smite/heal bots?
I haven't had it badly lately after going through a phase where I'd get 2+ bots every game and plenty of situations where I was the only human playing. Usually there's phases of non stop bots, then brief pauses where they're all gone :P

No one expects the damage :P
Recuro (NA)
: To all of you complaining about how busted Ardent is...
I still don't build it, I just grab Righteous Glory on Taric and pummel the enemy support to death. Usually works.
: Which champions have dots?
Here's the hoping Swain's still the DOT mage fighter he is now and doesn't become another wimpy back line artillery mage that dies if you look at him funny.
: Who would fall prey to the Agony's embrace?
Taric would somehow reverse her charms. Probably deflect it with his jaw.
: More or less, when can we expect to see Swain's visual update?
: Will we ever see old Graves again ?
Sadly nope, they've left that slot entirely to Lucian now.

: The one champion i can´t deal with.
She really only exists for cosplayers and porn. Hell, she's just an edgier Ahri.
: I mained Evelynn for 6 years and thought the reworked skills looked great, one game later....
I hated the Taric rework at first. Gradually he became my main after I adjusted, to the point that I prefer the rework overall. Give it time.
: Evelynn - Need build ideas
I feel like most of your standard burst is rooted in your E, so you'd want on-hit AP items like Runic Echoes and Lich Bane. Your Q'll proc Lich Bane constantly too which'll benefit your DPS.

Those quests tend to push you towards playing characters you hate or don't own in my experience, compared to the reliability of the LOL bonus. Now if I got given nothing but Chen missions that would be something else entirely :P

Probably have a brief career as an after dinner speaker, maybe do a few school visits about believing in your dreams, then fade away into drug and booze fueled obscurity. His eventual OD death would be a side column in the papers at best.

Same with Widowmaker/Last Caress. I prefer the former.
Somanoid (NA)
: Honor for an Opponent. Why would you want to?
I always liked to honour opponents who generally out-mechanicalised me in a fight. I still remember this Zed I fought way back in 2014 as a first time Sivir, his team was extremely heavy and he was hard carrying like a god and we had an awesome 1v1 where I just barely managed to outplay him in the end. Compliments from us both in all chat, and honour too :P

: Remember when teams were 20 kills ahead and still lost ?
I don't think that ever really happened outside throws, which haven't changed.
