: Hashinshin: MR items are weak, Armor items are too strong
This gotta be blatant trolling. Armour is the worst stat in the game rigth now, and it has been the worst stat in the game for at least two seasons. It's laughable how you can play a game with 5 AD champions and don't worry at all about getting countered by a team with a few tanks and lots of armour. I just lost a game like that: Vayne and Yasuo melting tanks left and rigth with a ton of armour pen and percentual damages. If anything, armour ítems need a serious buff, or a nerf to armour pen, and stop giving everyone and his grandma access to percentual damage because building a ton of health is supposed to be a legit option to counter certain champions, not a way of wasting gold.
: Who is the biggest threat to Runeterra?
The Void is by far the greates danger in theory… BUT random Void creatures are not a huge threat by themshelves, and the Frozen Watchers haven't been seen in millenia. Because of this, I voted for Mordekaiser. He is already here and being an active menace.
: "What are you guys' thoughts on Sona's current state as a whole?"
Sona needs a REAL rework. I remember when they anounced a rework for her,,, and they basically changed nothing in her whole kit. By the way, I have mastery 7 with Sona, but in season 8 I basically don't knwo how to play her because of the new runes, and I basically can't win a game with her, so I had to stop playing her completely. That's sad.
: Nightblue gets a player Falsely banned.

Is the ítem supposed to interact like this with Mordekaiser's ult? Because I swear it feels like a bug to me.
: He isn't a hyper carry and you only say that crap about his early game because you play champs such as Voli and Darius in the top lane. If you're talking of mid lane, no Yasuo shits on every single AP champion I can think of. His early game is far too good for the late game he gets. Now if they moved him to the top lane he wouldn't be such a big issue but in the mid lane he is.

: Morde sitting at 70% ban rate, 13% pick rate, and 56% WR even with 0 expereince on him
I have played him three times today and somehow lost all them because I had massive feeders in my team. But I have to say he is overpowered; not sure if resistance, damage, or both. He is going to get nerfed, probably. Anyway, I don't agree with the "learning curve" thing. What should you learn about Mordekaiser? If you are decent at aiming with his E, that's about all his difficulty.
: Yasuo's Early Game is Too Good
I literally came here rigth now to complain about his stupidly overpowered kit. He has been broken for years and doesn't get a nerf because he sells skins....

Another great skin line that goes to hell because only the popular champions that already have a ton of skins gets in it. It's boring as hell. Expect an Arcade Lux skin soon.

Lan Fan (EUW)
: Any "No meta" thing is troll until a pro plays it, and it's annoying
I think it's worse when it happens in the other direction. I still remember when some pro played Missfortune support because it was a very specific pick, to counter the enemy Zyra, as part of a very specific team composition. But I spent the next month losing games at random because people were convinced that Missfortune Support was some kind of "hidden OP" champion. I even had to ban Missfortune several times because someone in my team wanted to pick her as support for no clear reason.
: If you want to use a mmr based matchmaking
The obvious reason why Riot doesn't want to show the famous MMR and explain how it works is just because people will literally laugh at their faces about how absurd their system is. Just take into account things like "promos" or restarting everyone's Rank every year… that's absolutly stupid and obviously a proper ranking system would never have those things.

: I don't mind losing the ghost at all.

: Morde is simply perfect.
Initially I was not sure about changing his ult because it was very unique. But the new ult is probably even more unique, and gives him an even scarier aura than before.

I have the feeling that somebody called Riot Zhanos should at least destroy half the champions in the game at random. Then explain that "Now the game is balanced, like all things should be".

Safety net for noobs. In fact, Yasuo didn't had that mechanic on his release, I think.
: Yuumi proves how utterly clueless this forum is.
I genuinely think she is going to be overpowered when people learn to play her well. Nami is Sona 2.0, and Yuumi is Sona 3.0: she does all kind of things, half the time you simply can't attack her, her ult is absolutely brain dead (basically Missfortune's ult but you can move while casting it), and several other things.

Riot releases this kind of bullshit with infinite movility, but then they changed things like Veigar Q from point-and-click to skillshot because "point-and-click abilities are boring and we want something that requires more skill". How exactly I'm going to land a skillshot on a thing that moves so fast I can't autoattack it? At this point we need several of the old point-and-click skills back.
: Ever wondered why some times you are clicking on an Enemy champ but it just wont auto attack them?
Secret mechanics working in favor of Yasuo? I'm not even surprised anymore. That champion is stupid from a start. Like when he uses windwall and the windwall is ALL OVER AROUND HIM for a moment.
: Now that Yuumi has been released, can Riot please put a VETERAN designer on the next support champ?
Riot doesn't know how to make supports. It's a legit problem and it's not new. They consider things like Brand and Vel'koz totally legit supports, they created Pike the support-asassin (wtf…?), they nerf Sona at least twice per season for no clear reason… They dont't know how to make supports.
iiGazeii (NA)
: Appearance-wise, they look good. Love the concept and the aesthetic. Not a fan of the champions they chose. Neither Lux nor Ezreal needed another skin. Xayah & Rakan, Taliyah, Varus, Brand, Janna, Taric, and Zyra could have easily been in this skinline as students and wouldn't have looked out of place at all. Graves seems out of place as the professor type. IMO, this could have been Jhin's legendary, but I won't be disappointed unless he isn't a Star Guardian either. Singed, Master Yi, Shen, Ryze, Viktor, or Camille would have also been great choices as a teacher. They could have easily made Ivern into the hippy-dippy magic guidance counselor instead of Dunkmaster.

I can say I'm happy about Jace and Graves. On the other hand, it's about time Ezreal and Lux chills the fuck up.

: "Mages make bot lane unenjoyable to play"
We keep going back to the main problem of the game since I started playing in season 3: ranged AD champions are overpowered as fuck, since ranged autoattack with high damage is the most hilariously overpowered thing I have seen in a PVP game. Ranged AD champions laugh at the concept of "power budget": they are supposed to be bad in early and stronger in late, but they automatically win the lane since minute 1 against any melee champion. "Weak in early"... my balls.
