People also don't like playing against Cait for a reason. Also, people always defend by claiming that Yasuo's Q is "dodgeable as easily". But the problem isn't whether or not it is dodgeable. The problem is that it comes at such an extreme frequency and at quite literally 0 cost of the caster, it places the burden of the plays on the opponent and NOT the caster themselves. And if you spam it, which you're literally encouraged to since there is no design implemented to punish spamming, it is simply by the sheer inevitability that you're simply going to land one at some point; and when it does land, instant jackpot for the caster. The problem is a highly disproportionate risk and reward scale: The opponent is responsible for dodging and endless spam attack that they get ZERO reward for doing indefinitely but punished severely if they just fail a single time, and the caster is ENCOURAGED to brainlessly spam with 0 negative consequence and instead rewarded handsomely merely on the basis of inevitability. It's just a bad design, undisputed. There is a reason why old Nid's spell was changed.
Man, any other slayer has an easier life than Yasuo and far more powerful tools. Yasuo is one of the few fair characters we have around. Some iterations of general balance might be favoring or dumpstering him as happened to every other character but overall he is fine. You are just wathcing things in the vacuum like they are incredibly powerful. His tornado needs to be up a lot because his ultimate needs a knockup to be usable. No other character as a prerequisite for their ultimate to be usable (notice, not effective, **usable**). His ultimate epr se isn't even that damaging, he still needs t attack you after, what it does is CCing **both** the enemy and Yasuo in the air. His tornado is nowehere near Nidalee spear as that alone did more damage than Yasuo entire kit.
: The fact that in the clip you killed him from full HP because you happened to land 1 ability with an extremely short cooldown makes me sick to watch. especially since you don't even get punished by being under turret.
The aim the video was to show that "smart positioning" doesn't happen that frequently. The fact that he killed his enemy "easily" (after landing a tornado that was dodgeable as easily) shouldn't affect you in any manner. It's not like other characters need more to deal with you without punishment. Caitlyn can just right click you to instadeath from a mile for example. The fact that your comment gets upvoted just shows how much the complaints against Yasuo come from biases and not from actual unbalance of the character.

: If Kayle is so weak, why did she get nerfed??
1 - I'm not going to give views to a guy I don't like 2 - Pros/Streamers can be extremely biased as much as the common players are 3 - The majority of Kayle players asked for more power early game at the cost of some less in the lategame
: Wait so Morde is now a rabbit?
Vartius (EUNE)
: Seeing the new Mordekaiser emote, I decided to redraw him in a more serious style
I hope the final model ends up being less like something from the Shadow Isles (wait a moment, I can explain)... One of the main thematics of Mordekaiser is being **The** Undead Overlord, not just a high ranked undead warmonger like Hecarim. His looks being different from any other SI undead champion are because he seeked these powers and became a undead via something entirely different form the Ruination, his looks should be more Noxian and peculiar, something you can tell it's not originated in the SI since in his _current_ lore it's openly said that he looks at the spectres of the Isles as lesser beings. Edit: Btw the emote is something for Ranked rewards, it might or might not be connected to Morde.

He tries so hard not to say anything bad about him... but unfortunately any kind of context won't help T1 perception xD
EATARI (NA)
: Zoe is fine. She has some insane damage, and solid single target cc, but her mobility is pretty lacklustre until she pops a summoners or stolen spell. Main way to play around her is to use minions as body block and to space yourself about 800 units away while her ult and paddle star are up. She is rather similar to Yasou honestly, where she has weaknesses, but they mostly apply to the macro level of gameplay. As unhelpful as it may seem, the best strategy is to just stay behind minion wave and space yourself properly.
If Zoe is fine then Xerath needs some decisive buffs.
0Hawke (NA)
: Zoey is Xerath fused with Nidalee
Today I had her on ARAM and... OMG her damage **even on tanks** with that Q alone is abnormous! I've never seen such levels of burst with so few gear, not to mention that it relaly oneshots squishies.

: Call me biased but,
make skins for popular champions only ----> make those champions even more popular by giving them awesome skins ---> repeat.
floo (EUW)
: As I said, Yi's heal is does not equal tower hits, he will take more damage than he heals. + he cant move at the same time. Again, trynda's ult is pure survuvability. It's supposed to not let him die except for fountain. It has no other function such as Yasuo's. Where's your argument?
Where it's always been. Yasuo isn't the only 1 with a mechanic that helps him against towers. It also triggers only when he starts from out of the range to the edge of it.
: off topic but why is kayles legs longer than her whole body lol
Yenn (NA)
: How did Kayle's hit box make it past QA?
Considering that she dies by a Minion's sneeze I don't see it as an issue.
floo (EUW)
: Yi can block and counterheal 1 or max 2 shots + 1 from a well timed Q, otherwise he takes more dsmage than he can handle. Fiora ult heal is lower than consistent tower damage and needs her to hit 4 marks before. The individual weak-spot heal is insiginificant. Trynda is complained about a lot, so i can see he has similar safety. That's one equal out of how many fighters? Ah btw, Trynda uses his ult TO survive. It's not a hand holding mechanic like for a damage/cc spell like Yasuo's R.
Yi can self heal while tanking shots too. Yeah I agree about Fiora, I just wanted to say that she too can do things while under turret while Yasuo (without that gimmick) wouldn't be able to (yes the shield reset would help a bit). Trynda can use his ult as he wants, it's still a tool to "cheat" tower shots.
: triggered yas main
Yeah except my most played characters are mages xD But I guess you have to try _Ad hominem_ when you lack any argument.
GripaAviara (EUNE)
: assassins not fighters
{{champion:23}} Just LoLs as his R keeps him alive even when shot. {{champion:11}} Doesn't even needs his R to do so. {{champion:114}} Massive self healing with R trigger and dash which doesn't need enemies to be around. {{champion:157}} CCs himself in place and still needs to attack you in order to get something off his Ult which firstly needs a telegraphed skillshot (which needs 2 previous casts) to land. **DOWNVOTE ALL YOU WANT, IT DOESN’T CHANGE THA I’M RIGHT IT JUST SHOWS HOW BAD YOU ARE.**
: farming is easy, trading I get (use your W to poke), roaming with e q is hard and matchups too
The massive Q from its combo with E is mostly a gimmick that you should use during far off teamfights rather than during a roam. The best thing you can do to gank a lane is to E in a way that cuts their retreat and cast your Q once you are close enough to get thier direction. Also keep track of the enemy jungler because you don't want bad surprises during your roaming. As far as matchups go, positioning is key, never stay still and try to poke them while you ae also hitting minions. {{item:2033}} helps a lot since you can burn a lot of mana, go back and E in lane. Against assassins you better play safe and focus on farming and vision, you can fight them once you get 6. Remember that you can now double tap Q if they dive to get away with a really small stun. Matchup against mages focus on dodging skillshots and harass them. {{item:3027}} and {{item:3116}} are your core items, the active from {{item:3157}} keeps your W active and might come in handy too.
: Aurelion Sol
We'll need some more details on your struggle to be of help. Do you find yourself having difficulties in farming? Trading? Roaming? Matchups?
: About morde story and possible his rework
Mordekaiser got killed multiple times but he came back as many. During one uprising of several tribes (one of which will become Demacia) he got killed again and couldn't resuscitate because {{champion:7}} stole his skull and brought it to the Blessed Isles in order to be kept safe. Centuries passed, the Ruination destroyed the Blessed Isles, triggered the Black Mist and turned them into the Shadow Isles. Mordekaiser's liches brought his skeleton to the Shadow Isles and there he came back to life again and is now building his empire in the Shadow Isles against the Ruined King. He has his eyes set on Noxus because he wants his Immortal Bastion back.

Honestly... I can't tell if fanart or pic with filters. But I can say one thing for sure: http://img02.deviantart.net/2f4e/i/2016/038/f/7/jhin_meme_by_mikouchan-d9qyb6a.png
: Pantheon X Raka
Pantheon x Soraka is never gonna happen Atreus x Soraka though (once he usrfaces once again) might be a thing. I can see Soraka finding a deep interest in a poor mortal fighting against this colossal space parasite while Atreus would develop a thing for his caretaker.
Terozu (NA)
: Srry, but Plat+ keeps the >60% banrate. It's not useless people, it's everyone. No one likes fighting this champ. His entire kit is anti fun and pure frustration. Everything we meme Teemo to be Yas actually is.
It frustrates mostly bad ppl. Bad ppl can also be in Plat+.
: Ez got a mini rework because his W was uninteractive, boring and unsatisfying. Yasuo has frustrations in his kit, but then there is also Teemo who is allowed to exist ONLY to piss other people off and while he does get a rework for being one of the oldest and mostly untouched champions by now that won't change at the core. Yasuo is strong and annoying, but he isn't broken enough to rework him. If they straight up remove Windwall they have to buff his survivability. If they rework that ability they also have to buff the rest of his kit to compensate. Neither of which are desirable in the least. You could make the argument that he should invest in more CDR to be as effective as he is, but that would also cause a lot of issues where weird and largely ineffective builds get suddenly more appealing and many people start buying the wrong items etc.
Ezreal became even more powerful and frustrating to deal with. Do you want Wind Wall to slow enemies pasisng through additionally to what he currently does?
Terozu (NA)
: Why hasn't Yasuo been changed when he has >60% banrate in 9 regions?(of 13)
Because that is the common banrate of Yasuo since his release. It's not connected to his power rather around how much useless ppl hate him.
Rioter Comments
: kayle adc is stronger than ap/as kayle, working as intended
I will give it a try, I was always scared to go full ADC because of AP scaling on her heal and omnivamp but in the end FFW is all she needs to self sustain.
: xerath skin
Arclight Xerath would be basiclaly Guardain of the Sands as it's told in its bi that he is composed of liquid light. Comsic and Dark Star have my vote, there are also concepts for a Void skin that looks relaly good. Elementalist would have been perfect for him but boobs and magical girls sell better unfortunately. Anyway we all agree he needs a legendary skin asap.
: Actually just looked again, Celestials do give out power to both the Shuriman and Targon ascended. Like you said though they are not Celestial hosts with the exception of Pantheon and Zoe. The main differences between the Shuriman and Targon ascended are that the Shuriman versions are given the power via the sun disc and celestials give out more power than they normally would give thanks to the sun disc. This in turn makes the Shuriman ascended stronger and much more longer living than their targon counterparts (with exception of Zoe and Pantheon). The Darkin are fallen Shuriman Ascended that went through extreme war-ptsd from fighting the void which became worse after Azir's death and the fall of Shurima. As you said they distorted themselves via using blood magic and using it as armor or other purposes. https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Ascended
Pantheon and Zoe aren’t Shuriman Ascended... and they have a Celestial entity in them.

I doubt this is just a small cult or sect, seeing as there are references to it in both Camille's quotes, Ekko's quotes, and Mundo's lore. > > As for Zaun we know that "The Grey Lady" is a thing and Viktor has followers who worship his work as Godhood even if he doesn't care. Sure, but the Gray Lady doesn't really fit the bill of being this "God" (as god is masculine, whereas goddess is feminine), as well as having a "Heaven" and "Angels" that serve under her.
Well not all religions work with heaven/hell/angels. Spirituality is different between civilizations and regions.
: Do Piltovans/Zaunites worship God?
Piltovians seem to be rather laic as society but I guess there could be a lot of sects and minor cults between its inhabitants as it's a really active commercial city. As for Zaun we know that "The Grey Lady" is a thing and Viktor has followers who worship his work as Godhood even if he doesn't care.
: I remember back in Aatrox's AMA (can't remember where to find it though) that celestials do pass away eventually but as to kill I have no idea. The celestial who gave Rhaast, Varus, and Aatrox their powers are different than the celestial who gave Nasus and Renekton their powers.
You are making a bit of confusion. There are no Celestials involved with the Ascended if not for Targon teaching them the ritual basics. Ascended are re-shaped by their ideals and mind and become able to wield more powerful magic or become more fearsome warriors than any mortal would ever be. The Darkins are Ascended who then re-re-shaped their bodies and wield different forms of magic (such as Blood Magic). They are not hosts of Celestials beings.

: certainlyT interview
Not really. I've played as, with and against Yasuo quite frequently and at least for me it's not only Yasuo having agency on the matchup and the game's result. Almost every character has answers or precautions to take and ways to outplay him. It is true that in the current patch cycle he is really strong but this isn't an intrinsic Yasuo issue, this applies to almost every champion time to time. If you want to take example of champions that **currently** are the only agents of their games you should be talking about Jax and Tryndamere.
Chen (EUNE)
: Played since S2 - Diamond Kayle Main - Please revert her back
These kind of threads are entirely pointless. No rework is getitng reverted, doesn't matter how well thought and deep your thread is. If you wanted to preserve what made Kayle's core then you should have written something deep and well thought during the period we knew she was up for a VGU in order to let Riot and other players know about it and have a discussion which the Devs could have used as feedback. I mean, look at MaliciousMetal, he was all over the place when Mordekaiser popped out both as for his speedy rework from CT and after Riot said Morde would need another, more complete one. He made tons of threads explaining what made him, what was sacrificable and what the kind of gameplay ppl expected from the character was. Ofc I'm not asking you to match his... obsession... nor his dedication. But being quite for the whole time and popping out with how you despise it and that they should revert it after the thing is well and done (and even released for a while) it's just pointless. Edit: **You guys can rage-downvote as much as you want, it doesn't change the fact that the chance to give feedback in order to preserve what you liked of a character is BEFORE the VGU lands, not after.**
UrPalAl (NA)
: Jayce nerfs are missing the point
He still is incredibly mana hungry and his high damage from range can be dodged quite easily if you know how to position. Jayce thrives in high damage metas and his stats are more than fine. What these nerfs are trying to achieve is keeping his power where it should while making him less safe if he either dives or gets some hits himself.

It's totally different in a PVP setting versus anything else. Because in a PVP setting, that means one player benefits from these frustrations at the cost of one or more opponents. In other words, it is objectively faulty design. His designs in a single player game for bosses/enemies wouldn't cause people to bat an eye. They stand out in PVP settings like League for the reason I mentioned above. "Git gud" shouldn't apply to only one side of the equation in a PVP setting.

: Also, all hard to market. Create a music video with sexy female champs, sell millions of skins because of them vs small furry thing, a tree or a crystal scorpion. Non-humanoid characters are just hard to market. God knows what Riot are doing with Quinn on the other hand.
They could eaisly make said characters look epic with a decent music video (look at the Pentakill one) but they are catering to the drooling far eastern masses that only care of sexiness (but hey Riot is against sexism).
: Riven now still sits at a 56% winrate with a 60% on her mains
It's funny because Aurelion Sol got instanerfed the moment his mains were stably getting that winrate and I'm hella sure there are more Riven mains than Aurelion Sol total players.

I do this all the time when I just want a game to be over. Not so much as a chat ban. Get rekt kid. Maybe you, like so many other players, should realize when a game is over, because they are over in the first 5-10 min depending on who has more kills.
"Get rekt kid" when the case is about an a-hole trying his best to tilt his team mates just shows how low of a human being you are.

What is weak in the West is fine because it's OP in the East while what is OP in the West is fine because it's weak in the East. It looks like a really weird principle of balance.
