: I Really Want to Know the Logic Behind Balance Decisions
That is assuming there is any logic. The way i see it, they have 2 baskets full of champion names in one and assorted nerfs and buffs in the other, and just randomly pull from both each patch.

: If you had to do a mouse only challenge(no keyboard), which champion would be the most viable?
: We shouldn't antagonize people who give up early
True. I've found the "never surrender" attitude is higher in lower elo, probably because they cannot really tell if a game has reasonable odds or not. Then again in bronze and silver pretty much any game is winnable at almost any point of the match so i'd give it a try anyway.

: A game where your team ffs a losing game successfully at 15 mins feels better than winning.
Why change your mind when you are correct. Feels especially frustrating when its a 4/1 vote and the nay says "i never FF". I feel like shaking them and tell them " why are you such a moron??"
: Viktor Nerfs Prove Riot Doesn't Know Why Viktor Is Overpowered Toplane.
From the people that fix irelia by nerfing her MS what did you expect? Lol. These are actually buffs for midlane vik and don't really hurt top vik
Rikisorsa (EUW)
: Which role is mechanically easiest, and why?
Every role has easy champs. Midlane tho relies more on you outplaying your opponent and then roaming to snowball, so if you're not that good mechanically i'd avoid that. Your best bet are toplane and jungle. Both roles require more knowledge than mechanical skill. Consider that i got to D4 by maining Nasus toplane, a linear statcheck champ with almost no outplay potential. Good luck with the climb and don't get frustrated!
: I found a tiny spider in my salad.
It means there were probably dozens of spider eggs in your salad, which are now in your stomach. Barf it all out! JK u'll be fine
: IT'S NORMAL
I could say the opposite thing: if you care about winning so much, play ranked. There is literally no difference in terms of time taken to start a match. In normals people try new champs or weird builds or just play more relaxed, and they have no reason to accomodate you.
: Oh no! 45-100% of my health is gone from one attack!
: Game is not fun. Match making is impossible to climb
How bizarre. I could swear i climbed from s5 to d4 in 2 seasons. But if you say its impossibile i must be mistaken clearly
Vuxem (NA)
: Make dodging a more punishable offense.
So if some1 wants to play a certain champ at it gets banned, they should still waste 20+ minutes? Some people lol

That's why even the female characters are called marksmen. Yes, that's what people have been getting at. The 8.21 patchnotes where they refer to Ashe as a "marksperson." This implies that the new 'inclusivity' team is possibly hard at work making pointless changes in the wrong places (instead of doing something actually useful). That is causing some people to REEEEEE their brains out because nobody likes having to walk on eggshells over stupid situations like this where the term in question was already proper.

Wait they hired an inclusivity team? When the game still has alot of bugs and new ones pop every patch (inevitable when programming)? And half the balance team doesnt play the game (5ms nerf irelia omegalol)? U guys are joking right?

I take it when i know the enemy laner is gonna pick ignite and/or prefers to all in rather than poke, like a Darius. But yes it is rather limited

It would just bloat the client for little gain. There are a miriad other ways to watch worlds and chat.

: I've no idea to how to actually play Urgot, I played him maybe once or twice when All For One mode was up, but I've never had an actual match with him. All I know is that he goes pew pew, fire the chain missile, execute. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}

Its 100% safe DW! W counts as autos so you make short work of the ghouls before they can even punch through your shield, there is no counterplay from him aside from crying for ganks And if he doesnt win lane he falls off very quickly
Varkul (NA)
: How am I supposed to fight against a Yorick?
Pick urgot, w when ghouls jump you, enjoy yorick tears. GG WP
: Diamonds in solo Q against an unranked?
Maybe because they are trying out positional ranking in normals. When i play them i get weird matchups too.
MirrorU (NA)
: Worlds Patch
At least worlds is entertaining this year. They'll probably nerf them after worlds
: Fighting toxicity is hard. But man, finding it is child's play
You may not be toxic but you sure sound condescending.
: Honestly? Probably because you play champs of top tier in your two roles almost exclusively. Nasus is one of the few champions who can systematically, game after game, be both an omnipresent split pusher, scaler, AND kill 1-2 of his impeders before he himself dies. Teams can't risk not stopping him from split pushing, and when they do, 1-2 people often die, so the trade was worth it. Try that logic on a split pushing {{champion:143}} . Xerath is just ......one of those champs that by design is irredeemably disrupting. Never runs out of mana, has massive range control, 1 shots even Baron'd waves, and is hard for a laner to approach (about the only way a Xerath ever dies is when he's roaming, or can get ganked while ulting, or really botches a skill combo. It almost always takes 2 or more teammates to kill him, and he's got very tiny risk of dying in a team fight. I don't play champs that are as safe as you do. I have to back out of my split pushes. I often can't get my drakes because bot/mid don't exist, but theirs DO. I lose my mid games not because I fed mid, but because I had to relocate Bot to keep Bot from hemorrhaging deaths. If I'm supporting, I'm usually at the mercy of whether or not my adc exists at all. Zyra..... I can carry them. Not all supports are that lucky. Usually you're behind 6 minutes on your quest and a significant amount of gold..... just because the adc doesn't exist.
Well of course if you try split pushing with Zyra something is going very wrong :P Each champion has their own playstyle, with stregths and weaknesses. With Nasus i can split all i want, but if enemy team has hard engage or if my team feeds someone like a vayne/yi/jax i am beyond useless. To close this out, not all games can be carried, even if you're on point sometimes your teammates just dont care about winning or are mentally challenged (i know i've been both of those lol). We'll agree to disagree on the skill level between silver and plat, cya and hf!
: You literally can stick a Silver in Platinum and they would thrive there. The pacing and forgiveness for playing passive puts specific silver players (not all of them) into a situation where they play that elo fine (Especially supports, and some one trick junglers/tops) The difference between Plat and most silvers is brutally singular: The Plats placed in gold, and got lucky enough to coast a series of win up into higher play tiers. The Silvers placed Silver, and can't deal with what are in reality 70% Bronze V population who somehow either haven't descended the ladder yet, or got a lucky win streak enough to come to Silver. If you try to play safe in Silver, your game is over before you can use that safeness. If you try to play safe in Gold, your game will probably succeed because you didn't help create the game ending snowball. If you try to play safe in Platinum, your game will probably succeed because you know better than gold how to use your CS lead to turn down objectives. You can have Platinum Macro play in Silver, and Silver will crap on it.

I don't know why our experiences differ so much, but i've played alot of silver games when i first started to climb, and they lasted around 10-15 minutes longer than my plat/low dia games. If you play safe and know what to do you'll climb. For what a single experience can matter, i climbed from silver for the first time playing Nasus top, just stacking and learning when to pick my fights. When i was decently good at the game i started winning more than i lose and i climbed to gold. Of course if you pick an early power champ and can't close the game by 25 minutes then you risk losing.
: Automaticly suspended for 14 days
Look dude if u got suspended for 14 days it wasnt over some minor incidente happening once...im no saint for sure but i never got any infractions and am honor5, and i don't shy away from telling people to s**k it when they get obnoxious. Its just about having a basic level of maturity and civility...
: No. I'm holding them to an "existing" expectation. Look at their CC scores, damage outputs, farm, etc. I can understand Silver performance in Silver. I was putting the entire other team behind though.... killing lane after lane, disrupting every push they made? But what did MY team do? Jinx and Zilean would split push bot, get killed in 2v4, and then Yasuo would go top, split push with Illaoi at the same exact time, and also die 2v4. They never tried at all to ward, to react to objectives.... at all, and were constantly dead. Maybe that's what you THINK Silver is. It's not normally. Normally, Silver isn't much different than Platinum: People have some mechanical understanding of their champions, but miscalculate angles, make aggressive plays where they are missing a key factor to winning that aggressive play, etc. They do not generally int to the point where the sum of Three of them add up to the damage of the smurf. (I did more damage than Illaoi, Yasuo, and Zilean combined...... and Illaoi is a friggin damage leader even if a feeder..... I've been using her a little recently and if I had less than 40k damage in 30 minutes I'd kill myself) The only thing that really separates Platinum and Silver is better ban choices, and very tiny miniscule micro play choice differences.
No, there is a big difference between silver and platinum, what are you on lol, otherwise everyone would be gold and platinum. Instead they are stuck in silver. Just to make the point clear, if plat and silver were so similar in skill, the rankings would be alot more fluid.

At full build you're supposed to ARAM mid and end the game :p

I'd rather not get into 20 minute wait queue. AGAIN :D
: So did riot just give up on clash and RGM?
I'd be happy if they just brought back blitz. It was basically aram bit more fun, perfect for when u dont have the time for a full game
: Learn to ff. I will stay at my tower and not help if you guys feed your asses off and refuse to surrender. You're lucky we can't just leave. AFK farming is the only option we have when we get a team of feeders that won't ff. I'm not gonna help stall out a game that's already lost. That's wasting time.
