: You should always build Morellonomicon instead of Liandry's Torment, even as DOT mage.
Old discussion, but it's missing a thing so I'm adding it. {{item:3151}} is better on champs that have weak AoE spells, that are able to continuosly procuring it to many opponents. {{champion:63}}'s passive, it doesn't deal much damage, but it keeps the {{item:3151}}'s burning effect up. On these champs {{item:3151}} is a better item.

: Crit Item Explorations Part 2
I think infinity edge could be great as a third item power spyke for marksmen. What made the current version fail is that 30+30% crit doubles at over 100. Just make zeal items at 25% and add a weaker infinity edge with the double crit passive. Would it be bad?

: I really dislike using Phantom Dancer for this. PD's mechanics are unique and incredibly fun, and losing what makes it so for a shield feels bad. If they're already adding Spear of Shojin, why not just add a new Zeal item with Lifeline? Besides, despite the loss in stats, that shield trigger looks way too broad to be healthy.
phantom dancer is totally wrong as it is now. armor and magic resistance are 2 separated values for a reason, as there is a reason their efficiency is a curve. adding a flat percentage defense, working for both magic and physical damage, is awfully exploitable.

: I miss Team Builder
teambuilder was in testing and it didn't work. it evolved into role draft. games in teambuilder weren't even that good. players there were mostly raging kids going mad when giving first blood. the typical yasuo/riven/katarina/rengar/vayne players everyone hate to find in ranked games. such a type of queue can't exist without an off-choice. that's why it turned out as a role selection queue, with a secondary role.

{{item:3095}} 2800g 65ad 25as (+60% dmg on first attack) {{item:1038}} {{item:1037}} {{item:1042}} {{item:1042}} 2775g 65ad 24as (no effect) now we clearly see how at the same cost we get the same stats. going stormrazor also gives the passive (powerspike), so one would expect the crit build will be better soon after. 3425g later crit build looks like this (ignoring shoes) {{item:3031}} {{item:3094}} for the same gold, stormrazor build is this one (no shoes again) {{item:3095}} {{item:3094}} +625g (24% as?) critbuild is: 70ad 30as 60cc (10% of crits ignores armor = 3% dps increase) >>> [~5500 gold value dps] stormbuild is: 65ad 79as 30cc (+70cc on first hit) >>> [~5400 gold value dps] the difference is not that much, considered stormrazor gave a good powerspike quite early, the crit build is only good once completed the second zeal item (might be wrong, read the post scrittum at the end of the comment). games just don't last enough for a crit build to be worth. riot could simply make games longer by buffing towers and preventing snowball. still, the real problem of stormrazor is that even though it's well balanced as an item, it can be abused by some champions. mostly jhin. i don't see how riot can prevent this. nerf stormrazor? it will be useless and only built by him (ok for balancing, bad for game design). buff crits? same result. there shouldn't be too specific items, since they will be abusable by few champions. if stormrazor is thought to be a poke adc item, just add a damn cooldown. like 8 seconds cooldown. or make it an energized effect. {{sticker:sg-janna}} ps: even at 3 items, critbuild isn't that much better {{item:3031}} {{item:3094}} {{item:3087}} 70ad 65as 100cc (10% converted in true damage) {{item:3095}} {{item:3094}} {{item:3031}} 135ad 90as 60cc (+40cc on first hit) both builds cost 9000g. it's late night and i might be wrong, but i see the stormrazor build to be better even now, on a level 14 caitlyn. this might be for the wasted 20% crit on the crit build, exceeding 100%.
: Do some main JUNGLE kill krugs?
{{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} Hi! Krugs are the most important camp for a jungler since they are the best at giving experience. If Krugs are one of the first 3 camps you kill, you are level 3 before your fourth camp. Exclude them and you'll need 4 camps for the level 3. A very common jungle path is red>krugs>scuttler recall gromp>blue>wolves>raptors>krugs. This is the best path if you choose to gain more experience instead of gank early (safe enemies, ult reliant champ). As a jungler, always go to kill krugs whenever they spawn, if the game allows it. They will make sure you won't ever be underleveled. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: which are?
being punished with a chat restriction when reported from 4 players who know each other, while not writing anything rude and having an average score. riot can show me the chat records from that game and tell me to follow the summoner's code, but all i read there are cheerings and calls.
: You went stupid again and forgot that we are talking about a thematic. Swinging a weapon from above into the ground and knocking stuff up is as just as retarded as a giant snowball knock you up instead of squashing you
what you consider retarded is perceived from everyone as appropriate. in your shoes i would consider rethinking.
: No, actually someone from riot support told me that more reports doesn't matter, 1 report = 9 reports.
well, what the riot support told you makes no sense when compared to facts
: Only if it’s a light table, but we are talking about slamming and axe/sword to the GROUND/(rocks), it won’t create even small earthquake and certainly won’t knock up even ants. Don’t overly simplify this like a stupid dude.. Wait...this is the boards, what did I expect.
this is a video game, not reality. in video games it's very common to see this kind of attack to knock up enemies. calling others stupid while not being able to see things for what they are.. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}

: Basically they killed Wukong in this patch,
they killed him already in the last patch. in this one they shot his dead corpse. {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
: ... Why should they remove it from the game? Stormrazor have its fair share of problem but Stormrazor is only a problem on champion abusing the item aka assassin and some bruisers wanting to do an OS build. The item is not problematic on their core user, the ADC. It is as if you said Black Cleaver should have be removed because some ADC abused it. The outrage that would have got... But I guess ADC item are fine to remove because 'reason'. The moment their passive will stop being stackable, it will clearly stop this kind of abuse.
stormrazor is problematic even on the ADCs, since it boosts champions like draven and jhin much more than others, even though those champions were already balanced. anyway, rengar has always been able to oneshot people. even before stormrazor. assassins are always a problem in league. rengar oneshots then dies, shaco tries to then dies, khazix tries to then escapes, evelynn oneshots then escapes. they all seem really unbalanced when compared each other... rito should make it clear what to be expected by assassins, and then make changes.
: My only problem I've had is some of the objectives spawn points, especially king of the hill. Like obviously when half the circle is under one teams turret, they're going to win that event.
yea king of the hill under enemy tower, or battle royale circle closing inside the enemy base. i really like the snowball fight and even more the push the cart thing, though. this game mode has much potential, if well polished and made fair.
: This time its nerf the champ, nerf the champ again, nerf all their runes, ***then*** hit the itemization

Eedat (NA)
: Not exactly, the tank rework + like 5 nerfs to BC (entirely because {{champion:236}} {{champion:21}} were abusing it and Riots absolute REFUSAL to make it different for ranged and melee) is what forced him out of bruiser. Riot hard nerfed all tank items and compensated tanks by adding power directly back into their kits. Wu just ended up with garbage tank itemization that was pointless to build. He has high AD ratios with trash base damages and also doesnt synergize with HP at all so {{item:3053}} {{item:3078}} {{item:3748}} {{item:3071}} that became staple items for bruisers all suck ass on him. Wukong builds assassin because he has been absolutely forced into doing so. Bruiser build are now complete garbage on him over seasons of changes to the game. He has no other options anymore
{{item:3071}} + {{item:3053}} is really strong on any ad scaling melee champ. 850hp + 100ad + shield + shred + cdr on 2 items. those 2 items are what makes aatrox so strong. the sterak changes (base ad -> extra ad) buffed a lot any melee ad caster. building those you would lack lethality, but you gain so much more health that opponents can't really focus you without losing the fight (more so since they start it from being knocked up). these wukong nerfs hit him really hard, why would someone play him over any other champ now? of course he used to burst squishies with a lethality build, that's what the build is for xD he is then oneshot as response. if rito sees him as an initiator without burst potential, then change some ad ratio into hp ratio, or lower ad scaling and high up base damage. make people want to build him offtank, make him an ad malphite. these changes on him really makes no sense.. was he considered too strong?
: If you can't do the time then don't do the crime
I have been chat restricted last week, and I said nothing wrong in the chat they showed me. It actually was a good game, but I lost my lane and people reported me. They didn't even insult me in chat, it seemed all fine. It's just number of reports, really. When I report someone for insulting me, most of the time I don't get the instant feedback of their punishment, even when their insults were fully written and clear. Maybe racial words make an exception, no experience with that.
: i don't like the fact that you asked enemy to report him. 9 reports is the same as 1 report.
punishment is delivered on the number of reports. every game has reported players. who gets more than average gets a punishment.

: Pffft please. If they aren't saving up all their gold to buy the whole item at once, they aren't new.
I saved all my gold in my first 2 games, to not waste it and use it wisely once I would have got a grasp of the game {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Decided to do a little experiment.
people flame, they get banned, they create new accounts, they flame even more, they get banned, aaaand repeat. riot can't do anything. those players exist and forcing them on new accounts with new players just make them worse. the best thing could be endure through early levels full of banned smurfs up to level 30+ and then find a nice place (which is not, since bans aren't as common as they should be). i usually behave well, but sometime i lose my calm and flame a little; never been punished for it. i have been chat restricted once, and lost my honor points (the first version of those), for telling people i was plat after being insulted for how bad my score was. that totally proves how flawed the report system is. it just looks at how many reports one gets. above average? punished. it doesn't even follow the "banned words" rule someone talked about. a lot of time players use a wide repertory of insults, and even reporting them after the game doesn't deliver me the "thanks for the report, punishment delivered" message.
: > It's another champ with a knockup. > What's the point of tenacity anymore when every CC is a knockup? The ability shouldn't even knock up thematically. He also has two slows and a root- which Tenacity DOES work on.
exactly, they need the ensured cc on his W. it already has weaknesses and a lot of preparation is needed for it
: same goes for Sion's and Aatrox's Q thematically. they swing their weapon from above
slam your hand on the table and see your spoon jumping... {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
: League of Knockups (New Nunu)
Knockups have been reworked, they are partially a stun. This is to ensure a minimum duration for the cc, if that skill is the main part of the kit and the champion really needs it. The other way to do it is to make it a longer stun, but it would be too strong against champions who don't have tenacity. It's the healthier type of cc in this game, yet you are complaining over it. Talking thematically, it's a common thing for a huge rolling snowball to fly characters up in cartoons (camera on the snowball, camera on characters' faces, camera at the sky with people flying up and then down). If you make it a knockback, he can't be a jungler. If you make it a stun it could be too easily counterable by tenacity and not as pleasant to see. Also, there's no reason to cry over yasuo. There are already at least 4 characters with knockups for a full team to be yasuo-centered, more won't change his power level. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}

: I will not read stylized titles how they are meant to be read
: Oh tell me , what was i wrong about? Isnt the game unbalanced? Are the devs giving a fuck?
yours is just a childish rant, but if you want I might talk about the things you mentioned. cho'gath is a melee champion with no gap closer ability, his ultimate can only be used on enemies who chose to be near him. also its damage has already been balanced and it's not even used that much anymore since the fix about gargoyle's stoneplate. skins are just cosmetics, they spend money to make them, it's the only thing keeping up their free to play model. they make them for the most popular champions, that way they are sure to have a profit. less popular champions get a full rework instead. you talked about zoe oneshotting fragile targets. that's what most of the mages do. she doesn't have an ultimate, her single combo is her all in combo. syndra, annie and all the others do the same. the reason zoe feels more unfair is that she is able to gank, but she paid that in exchange of a really weak teamfight presence. nidalee is a poke champion, her role is to poke before a teamfight. she is also good at 1v1 weak junglers. given these strenghts, she can't oneshot enemies, that would be too much. look at kayn, a strong jungler assassin who's able to oneshot fragile targets. he can't poke, placing ward/traps nor healing or increasing someone's attack speed. at the moment lol is in its best shape it is ever been (i wouldn't have said this days ago with the safe early game hyper carries had with stopwatch+boots+footwork).
: Why is this game still so popular?
simple answer, because you are wrong
: Can't log into league (IN GAME).
Same for me. Changing password didn't work at first. After few minutes it logged in.
: I can't log into my account.
Same for me, today there are problems.
: I got three key fragments rapidly in a row (over 4 games I think) and haven't gotten another one since. Is that normal?
Pretty normal. I got fast 7 fragments, the 8th is taking more than 10 victories. This time the cycle started late in the month. I hope there will be enough time to get 16 fragments in a month, since 4 chests are already a limitation.
