Oh honey, you should keep yourself informed before you speak https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-913-notes#patch-pyke
: LMAO. Maybe, just maybe lowest single target damage. But seeing as all 3 of his damage abilities are/can be AoE he can deal SHIT tons of damage in team fights.
: Hes also an assassin with 2 HARD CCs. > You have to take a holistic approach when evaluating a champion.
He's also the assassin with the lowest damage in the game and the most unreliable escape.
: How convenient of you to ignore the massively high base armor/health (squishy haahahhha) the dashes, health regen, hook and the assist gold he has. Pyke ult is the strongest execute in the game on its on, once you attach it to all the other bullshit his kit does it makes pyke one of the most r%%%%%ed champions ever created ( Im surprised its not a CT champ tbh)
> How convenient of you to ignore That's kind of my point. People just take whatever suits their narrative and don't bother putting them back in perspective with the entire power budget of the champion. Pyke's ult might be the strongest, situationally. But give me a tank as opponent and I'll choose Urgot over Pyke any day. Sometimes you clearly would rather play Darius, or Urgot, or Cho'Gath. It's situational. Now as you guys always go for the high DPS squishy carry and leave the others to play your frontline and your supports, maybe there is a reason you feel Pyke is busted. Maybe it's because that's the one that's most suited to beat you…
: But the reason people don't like it (me included) and some of his core issues is that that is the trade off; No HP from items, gain AD instead. Why is he being triple compensated for it? 1. Gains AD instead 2. Insanely High base HP. 3. Insanely high base Armor. Not even including his insane passive HP regen...... so really hes getting Quadruple compensated.....
He's a assassin with actually little reliable escape, and the HP-to-AD conversion is not gold efficient. The high base HP offsets that. Also, what matters most is not his AD itself but his ratios, which are actually not that high. His regen is reliant on his already unreliable escape. You have to take a holistic approach when evaluating a champion.
: I hate Cho, but he at least has to walk up to you to eat you, and it's a single target without resets. Urgot's skillshot can be body blocked and doesn't scale with damage, the treshhold will always be the same (25%). No other champion with executes or high true damage ulties have Pyke's amount of mobility and regen and resets (except Darius who resets ults but still has to walk up to every single target).
I mean, we have to put things in perspective, too: Urgot: fairly tanky (juggernaut), ult is a massively ranged linear skillshot, slows, deals %HP pure damage (the thing we're supposed to be against, remember?), and AoE fear afterwards. Cho: very tanky, ult is point-and-click true damage, gives permanent and indefinitely-stacking health, which amplifies subsequent damage. Darius: fairly tanky (juggernaut), ult is point-in-click true damage, scales with passive stacks, activates passive, resets on kill. Pyke: overly squishy (can't build HP), ult is an X-shaped skillshot (easy to miss or dodge), deals physical damage if not executing, makes you blink to melee range on hit (potentially killing you in the process). You see, it's easy to just portray things a certain way. Pyke's ult has pros, and it has cons. Pyke is an assassin, the ult threshold is a fixed amount to kill squishies, while Urgot's is a %HP amount because he's a tank killer. Pyke's is ranged because he needs to be able to leave melee afterwards, while Darius has sustain mechanics for fighting at close range, and Cho has CC to reach his opponent. Pyke's give more gold because he's an assassin with a support's income and he needs to execute to be functional. An advice: if you think you'll be ulted by Pyke, move up/down/left/right. His ult's shape is diagonal; moving in the cardinal directions will make you leave the hitbox fairly quickly.
: Let's ignore the actual fact that he CAN by HP, and it is turned into AD.
That's obviously what I meant, it just explains why his base HP is so high…
: pykes excute has to be the worst designed excute in the game
What does Cho have to stack to execute? Also, are we conveniently forgetting about Urgot? And the fact that his ult is a skillshot?
Yets4240 (NA)
: Don't forget, he has both the highest base HP and highest base armor (130 mother fucking armor, btw, ***15 fucking more armor than the next closest, BRAUM who, despite being THE warden, who only uses a massive, unbreakable shield as a weapon, only gets 115***) in the entire game, as a hyper mobile assassin, with free massive regen, invisibility, AoE hard CC, and AoE resetting nukes/executes that duplicate gold and now give him more gold for an assist than the bloke who actually lands the kill.
> Don't forget, he has both the highest base HP Let's ignore the fact that he literally can't buy HP…
: Why is autofill even a thing for ranked games? You obviously want to play the best you can, therefore you want to play the role (or roles) that you're most comfortable in and the one you're more likely to be able to carry with. Normals autofill makes sense, in Ranked it should be opt in or out for autofill. Queue timers would probably be longer but at least you'd have to worry about normal inting and not inting because they didn't get their role.
MaFyO2154 (EUW)
: the game would be less toxic if the game would be more enjoyable
Toxicity was always high, remove your nostalgia goggles.
: No more execution ults
We literally have 2 out of 145
: The change to the color of damage; reversible?
Give it a week and you won't notice it…
: A tank is a massive armored vehicle that has a huge cannon. Durability and damage. League juggernauts fit the tank metaphor much better than league "tanks". Just saying.
Terchio (NA)
: Tanks are not defined by CC. Enchanters and other fluffy supports are not tanks. Tanks soak damage. That's the definition. If you're asking whether juggernauts are enchanters, then yes, I agree, juggernauts never were enchanters. But tanks? Some Juggernauts tank better than most other tanks. If you want a Warden, ask for a gorram Warden. However, don't pretend that Lux and Zyra are tankier than Garen and Mundo.
Tanks are defined by CC *and* damage-soaking.
: E.A. : A Loot Box is basically a Kinder Egg!
Well, at least in this case it's only cosmetics. Still shitty, but not harmful to the gameplay.
: Do they know what happened to him?

He committed suicide, left a farewell video on his channel before disappearing. His body was found recently in the river.
abca98 (EUW)
: "Stop complaining about mobility, you just have to aim your skillshots properly"
Hitting skillshots on dashing enemies is not even the issue. The real problem is chasing them through walls
: Do You Enjoy Autofill?
> Would you prefer autofill be removed, even if it meant slightly longer queues? That's not how it works. Autofill is there to prevent the queues from getting endlessly longer until people just give up trying to get into a game.
Rioter Comments
: What's the point in reconnecting to games if you're punished anyway?
Maybe… MAYBE… you might want to play for the sake of playing?
Pakushy (EUW)

CD8 (NA)
: Anyone else find it odd that Qiyana is AD?
I'm honestly still wrapping my head around Katarina's being AP
: No More Login Screens? Champion Pages?
I think they got too much at the same time and didn't get the time to make all these pages and animations. Yuumi was delayed, Morde was delayed, Qiyana just arrives as well, MSI just happened, with the House thing, and Battle Academia skins, a new Jhin legendary skin next patch. So yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have the man power for less critical content.

You should definitely try it. It's a very unique experience. You just need to find a table to play with. Edit: by "table", I mean a group. I forget that I use a very specific terminology.
Àéry (NA)
: Why dosen't Aery have lore?
When you create a Pact of the Chain Warlock in D&D, do you give your spirit familiar a background?
: It's extremely comparable..... Old Poppy was basically Morde's new ult.... except it could travel distances, and be tracked by both teams. If Poppy ulted Zyra, Zyra's pets could still hurt her. If she ulted Malzahar, his pets could still hurt her. etc.
But its use was entirely different, because it's not a 1v1. You basically render yourself immune to everyone but whomever you select, while still being able to hit everyone.
: A little worried about one feature of the new Mordekaiser: Clone skills.
> but even Poppy's old kit didn't make her immune to her target's PETS/Clones. Poppy's old ult was literally "let me ult the support while I destroy everyone else". It's not comparable. That ult made you immune to pretty much EVERY champ's pets at the same time.
: Tear upgrade for supports
Supports are meant to build mana regen instead of large amount of mana, unlike mages, for whom it's the opposite.

Maybe even Smite. Warframe won't matter until Wisp launches on console Maybe look for games that are to be enjoyed and not beaten. Look at things like Magicka, it's a clusterfuck of ridiculousness and no one cares about skill, it's just mashing buttons and hoping for the best. Plus, you can kill your ally to steal his equipment. Find a good friend to play with and have a good time. Try maybe Portal 2, Borderlands, Battleblock theater, any game that isn't focused on challenge and skill.

: I challenge you Yuumi! An honorable duel between equals!
: Yuumi is either Building raw ap or that heal is in no way effective no matter how much its up. Yuumi's passive shield is puny not worth going for especially with how trash her defense is and how bad her auto is.
I've had great success playing her like that.
: Block a Spell with Banshee's? You get hit with Luden's, Scorch, and Comet/Aery anyway.
The power of Banshee it to block hard-cc engage and nuke abilities. Who cares about the somewhat small damage of a comet?

I couldn't find you the source just now because I don't remember where I saw it, but it was an official source clearly stating they were going to do that, once the litigations are resolved.
: thats not what was there before just because i didnt quote it. All the time still doesnt work Her shield and Heals both have long ass cooldowns
Healing with 2 charges with 8s cooldown, shield on passive, aery proc, athene's heal. That's a lot. Edit: add Redemption to add as well.
: Mandatory Arbitration Still There For Current Riot Employees
> CURRENT employees still have forced arbitration, isn't that convenient? Riot said that once the current litigations are over, they will give every Rioter the opportunity to opt out of that clause.

: wait morgana isn't an angel anymore?? damn you rito yes i liked her tortured soul personality more than this...what hashinshin called "sorority girl" doesn't look like a banished angel that's in pain at all well at least she's pretty i think
She's the progeny of an Aspect. She denied her nature as she felt it was dehumanising and hypocritical.

Be ready for the reddit trashtalk at RR.
: I would argue that Yuumi needed the initial hotfix and was too weak, even w/ the new playstyle and people auto-picking flash on her when it is niche on Yuumi. Unlike most "late game champions", [Yuumi actually does have a weak laning phase](https://i.imgur.com/CGyp35p.png) (though Yuumi's are getting better at psychological warfare w/ the whole 'invulnerable w/ 10hp' thing). Probably will see something like a 54% WR after 100 games, 62 after 200 on Lolalytics (WR/time stats are not available just yet). Yuumi'll have to be carefully watched during future preseasons though as any increases to the average game time will result in a gigantic indirect buff on her, and vice-versa.
> I would argue that Yuumi needed the initial hotfix and was too weak Adding to that: Yuumi was probably a tad too weak number-wise, but her kit has proven crazy strong in some situations. She probably has the best poke in lane (even though the botlane is extremely vulnerable to ganks), is pretty much impossible to outrun, and can heal and shield everyone all the time in late game teamfights. Also, {{item:3174}} is just so strong on her, it's crazy.

Rune pages became irrelevant the second we could edit them in champion select Literally the only purpose of buying them is convenience. Old runes made it a necessity to be flexible. Current runes you literally don't need them if you're good at swapping stuff in 2-8s. I still enjoy the fact I have a rune page for each keystone to keep shit organized but 5 pages you can edit wouldn't destroy Riot's business model. Rune pages are not what's making Riot bank, its skins.
