: How the fuck is new yorick better than Old Yorick, again?
He's a better duelist and has better specific skills instead of being a non-interactive drain tank.
: This seems a bit harse...
No, these are typical buffs for a champion that has as much as she does. I honestly don't see a problem with this, and if you'll look at other champions who've been adjusted recently, they've also followed a trend of increasing early game costs, and decreasing non-scaling CC (like 90% at all ranks changed to a slow that scales up with each rank). These changes seem perfectly in line.

: >back in the day their was no line that really seperated the standerd 975 from 750 There was ALWAYS something that Separated 975 from 750... 975s generally have particle effect changes where as 750s don't unless they are absolutely needed and it's only one or two at most. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752874-Guide-to-Skin-Price-Tiers 750 Features: model changes, new texture, new splash image. Sometimes includes: new animations. 975 Features: new model, new texture, new splash image. Sometimes includes: new animations, visual effects, and sounds where appropriate for the skin's theme. 1350 Features: new model, new texture, new splash image, new animations, new visual effects, new sounds. Sometimes includes: processed voice overs. so there's a lot of differences between these skin types as there has been since they had introduced 750s back in season 4.
I've even been pleasantly surprised with how they've upped their game with the 750 skins as well. I mean, they've fit really nice-looking themes onto champions without changing the particles, and it still looks nice enough to stand on its own. Look at Lionheart Braum or Dawnchaser Sejuani. Their new appearances still have the same feel, but there's just something impressive about them. It's sort of like they're given more creativity when they're not constrained by fitting a theme with the particles. Or, perhaps it's more like "we can let this skin look flashy if the particles aren't going to be"

That's mainly to assist in clearing camps. I don't really anticipate it being used to cut someone down who's almost dead. If that's the case, then Yi's just going to catch up to them anyway.
: if you dont make other summoner spells better than exhaust, exhaust will take over
Well, Exhaust is still good in its own niche, and it's filling a few more niches as well now. The whole point of Exhaust is to prevent someone from doing too much damage too quickly, which is what this season is all about. With more than one exhaust, you can ensure that multiple damage threats aren't going to lay waste to your team in just a couple of seconds. Everything has its own place in the game. Ghost isn't being nerfed; It's just being adjusted. In fact, at later levels, it will give more move speed than it did before. This is pretty much to help cut down on the mid-lane roams that were so prevalent. Besides, any mid laner worth their salt is going to take both Ghost and Exhaust.

I was on the verge of giving up, but then I thought about how much sweeter the win would be if I stuck it out.

As someone who has resided in Diamond Pride for multiple years, I cannot say anything further as pertains to the game.... daga kotowaru..... when a Grandmaster Chess Player realizes that the match cannot end in his favor, he tips over his King , knowing that defeat was inevitable. When a Grandmaster Chess Player does not do this, he is treated as human garbage. Rightly so, Chess is not for clowns.
Except the game did end in our favour. Because we played well. I guess I'm a Grandmaster then :D

Well, when the worst kind of gameplay affects you, don't give up. Always keep trying in the face of adversity. Yes, that's what this topic is about.

: How to build
It all depends, really. Once you play for a while, you start to get the hang of it. Nautilus and Amumu have generally high base damages to offset the lack of scaling they're going to have with their 0 AP items, generally. Amumu also has %Max HP damage on his W, which can end up being strong against other tanks. Yi and Xin scale well with Attack Speed mainly due to how their kits work; Both are on-hit reliant champions that have benefits for high attack speed. Yi has his double strike, and Xin has his heal. Generally, once you've built your core item, you tend to look at what enemies you're against and what they're building. Say, for instance, I'm playing Vi jungle. If, during champ select, I see that they've got a team of mostly squishies, I'll pick Fervor and max E second. If they've got a team of tanks, I'll go Colossus and max W second, and build two damage items. But yes, the more experience you have, the more you'll know how things "should" go.

That would fix nothing. You're simply ushering in his super late game by making him stack even -harder-

: when did corrupting potion...
Corrupting Potion is for the people who want to survive. It's not necessarily always going to be used while hard engaging on someone to take advantage of the active burn. Most of the time, the players that take C.Potion are generally in an unfavourable matchup and just want to make it through lane phase. Doran's start is generally when a person wants to harass and take advantage of the early game power they have. I would absolutely get Doran's over Corrupting Potion on champions like Orianna, Syndra, Viktor, etc.

Doesn't work. I never see the same person twice in games, and I want to be sure that I don't see what they say in after-game lobby.

: "It's like it doesn't even matter we won lane so easy"
Honestly, it just sounded like he didn't position himself properly. Granted, he's got 550 range, but he should still be able to do stuff, so long as the team covers for him, and he has enough damage to make up for that.

Burst champs like Lux, veig and etc at bot lane counter soraka really awfully because soraka cannot heal burst damage. I am worried that this item counters her so badly then it would be abused regardless of the matchup thus preventing me to play soraka even where i may have advantage over the enemies in terms of the match-up. The mortal reminder is a perfectly viable item on any adc and against an soraka it will work wonders. Do you get why i feel like i wasted my time on playing as soraka if not as supp?
No, not really. It's not like she'll be useless all the time. Take, for example, my skill on Diana. I consider myself a Diana main, even though I don't get to play her all the time. Why don't I get to? Well, mostly because she just gets dumped on by some really annoying champions, like Brand or Swain. However, when I'm in a good matchup, say...versus a Lux or Katarina, I know I can absolutely crush my lane opponent. You see, even though I don't always get to play my best champion, it doesn't negate my skill with her, same for you. Even if you aren't always going to get to play her, you still have that knowledge and experience, and can assuredly exert dominance when you do get to play her.

: 10 Step guide to disentangling Attack Damage for the three roles that use it.
This actually sounds like a surefire way to differentiate the roles, though I would worry about a few ADCs, namely Twitch and Draven, abusing the assassin items. But overall, it sounds pretty decent.
: So I started muting everyone
Well, there are some things to remember. Mid is the gateway to the rest of the map, so you've gotta be sure you can hold your own there. Jungle is also the support for the whole map, so you've got to keep your eyes out all the time. Be ready for everyone to blame you almost all the time.

: [BUG] Viktor's Q procs 3 times on structures, bugged since patch 6.3
No, this happens with self-empowered Basic Attacks, like Gragas W, Kassadin W, etc. The animation goes off, but it doesn't proc on structures. You only get to see the animation three times because the buff falls off, and you don't have more attack speed to see it more than three times. The magic damage is due to some mastery (or a change they did for all champs who have more AP than AD) that lets you apply part of your AP to basic attacks on structures. And since you have a lot of AP, you seem to do a lot of magic damage to the structure through Basic Attacks

Nothing! I'm saying I still like it!

Yes he could. But I still like it about the new Shaco, too.

Gotta love it when people simplify a role into the good points, and never about the bad points. You'll learn to hate it when people are shouting at you to gank after they push up in lane. You'll also love being invaded by 3 people, or just the overblown jungler of the month. Not to mention getting counterjungled by both the enemy and your own team from time to time.
