: Unpopular Opinion: Yasuo is the fairest out of the AA focused fighters
People complain about CertainlyT, but they usually miss the point. "Kit is overloaded", "Broken ability", "Overpowered"… CertainlyT's champions are often frustrating because they require you to think more about your opponent, which people often don't do. "Could Zoe be behind that wall?", "Does Yasuo have his windwall?", "Where will Kalista jump?", "Is Thresh's lantern ready for a surprise gank?". But the point of this is that once you understand how to deal with it, the match-up becomes way simpler, and easier to outplay.

Jinx' thematic is already very strong, so they can't afford to divert very far without not making it feel jinx-like
: And they will still claim they don't balance the game around pro play. This balance team is literally willing to destroy the entire game by gutting weak champions and buffing overpowerd ones for ONE or TWO flashy plays at world$. Someone at Riot needs to be fired. Whoever's making the game go straight South.
They literally said that the next patch will be focalized on pro-play for Worlds…

As a man, I must say I am very offended by your Summoner Name. I must ask you to change it to "Humanslayer" or even better, "Personslayer" so there is no "man" in it. But wait, that's specist, you should instead call yourself "Livingslayer", so you even include vegetals. But that might not be fair for minerals, so let's be the most generic possible: "Thingslayer". Wait, that's not right, because now if you kill a woman, you're equating her to a thing, which is objectification, which is sexist! You should be ashamed of yourself, you misogynistic pig! Anyway, you're wrong and you should stop playing this game. Hell, you should stop breathing, because you're using the oxygen produced by trees and you never asked them if you could use their oxygen. This is such a misodendric attitude!
: Seems useful, but it would confuse me a lot. I look at my keyboard rather than the screen when typing so I would have to buy a keyboard with that layout. It's mostly because I'm a weirdo who doesn't type using the standard way of typing that they try to teach in school with the home keys. Oddly enough I can usually correct my mistakes without even having to see them on the screen. I just always felt so slow trying to use the home keys so outside of the classroom I would disregard this typing style completely. If I miss any mistakes I just proofread and correct them after I finish typing. Edit: Apparently buying a Dvorak keyboard is insanely expensive, but you can get stickers to map out your current keyboard for like $5. :D
Actually, switching to BÉPO forced me not to look at the keyboard. Not I can type faster, with 10 fingers and without looking. It's hard at first but you get it suprisingly fast. The only thing is that you have to commit entirely, so it'll come with a time in which you'll be slower. What I did is that I changed my keyboard layout on my gaming PC *and* my office PC *and* my smartphone. With the smartphone, I managed to memorize the layout way more easily. When I had some time, I went to a website with typing exercises. It kinda hurts at first, to be honest, because you're not used to this kind of movements, but it disappears after a few days. I still have my old AZERTY keyboard, but I don't change it because I like it and I don't need a BÉPO one. I even think that getting one for learning is counter-productive. You would seriously be surprised how much better it feels to type on an actually well-designed keyboard.
: I deleted the comment and went to google it to see if it was actually possible. Found one thing that was old as heck and tested it. It didn't work. Like you said, we don't really need it unless we're trying to type in another language. Kinda sad really. There are so many things we can't type without copy and paste. :(
Personally, I changed my keyboard layout to BÉPO, a layout designed for French speakers. It has *everything*. I can write every character in every european language, although some are bothersome. But it's definitely better. You could try Dvorak, it's the inspiration for BÉPO. It may seem daunting to change your keyboard layout, it's very hard at first but I never regretted it.

Can't say you usually really need it, English doesn't have diacritics, like ever. French keyboards are even worse in that regard, there is a symbol that we can't even write: œ

It's rather flawed to say use Cleanse to negate part of Ignite when Cleanse should be used to avoid CC that would generally cause death, such as Lux Q to avoid part of her combo. Also, Cleanse doesn't negate the followup CC, just reduces it for 3 seconds. Unless something changed this season, Cleanse doesn't remove the GW portion of ignite, only the damage portion due to the fact Ignite and the GW are two separate things.
> It's rather flawed to say use Cleanse to negate part of Ignite when Cleanse should be used to avoid CC Cleanse is a survivability tool. I've avoided a lot of ignite kills with it. I don't care if it's "meant" for CC. I survived thanks to it, and nothing elso could have, so I used it correctly.

They don't want it to become clear for people so that they know when they can "afford" not to be nice. Keeping the mystery subconsciously enforces you to try to be nice because you never know how much you need to level up.

To be honest, I think the boards have failed. _Gameplay_ is just an awfully negative echo chamber, _Esport_ is basically inexistent, _Story, Art & Sound_ is irrelevant 2 days after lore changes and music/video releases, _GD_ and _M&M_ are really just one board, and the other ones are so niche that I dare you to name them without looking. Only point of the boards right now is the Dev Corner.

: Ultimates are ultimates. They are meant to have long cooldowns..... Fiora Riposte and Garen W have cooldowns that are both 4 whole seconds shorter than this. Its insulting and unprecedented, to literally double a champion's most important spell with no compensation except on enemy devour, which you rarely get the chance to use bot lane anyway.
> Ultimates are ultimates. They are meant to have long cooldowns..... Yet are often completely negated by a normal ability that provides safety for an extended duration. For such a strong utility effect, it's quite normal to have a very long cooldown. Master Yi's meditate has a 35 s cooldown. Ashe's Hawkshot has a 90-50 s recharge time. Ivern's Brushmaker has a 40-24 s cooldown.

: Yeah if. But how many champs are? I see the argument on here quite often about how you can hit her with skill shots/when she goes to attack. Though if you are not a skill shot champion, or you are an AA reliant champion it doesn't feel like a viable argument considering how much of an advantage the shroud gives her, this is especially painful if you are a melee.
True, but the point of her shroud is to make her safe. Now, I get that it's frustrating, but the thing is that it's not as broken as people make seem.

Kinda, if you're a squishy level-2 late-game-oriented champ against an level-3 assassin who hit everything on you despite you still having flash.

You can't target her, but you know her location, so if you're mostly skillshot reliant you're mostly fine.
