: Blitz breaking shields in 1.14
His silence is only 0.5 seconds and is more useful to interrupt channelled abilities like Malz ult and Katarina Ult. It gives a very small window of opportunity to actually kill the target you hooked before they use something to immediately escape. Sometimes if you don't ult you can't even follow up your hook with his E because the target goes untargetable, flash away or whatever. It is a very needed proportional window for Blitz to follow up his combo and let teammates react accordingly.
: Please Riot, these Renek and Kled changes are terrible for toplane. What are u doing?
Repertoir is blessed with a touch of destruction. In all the years he has been working for Riot its been nothing but failure after failure after failure. He started as a champ designer/reworker and failed on all of them, then he moved to item reworks and the entire ADC-item rework had to be redone within a year, then he was put in the balance team and we all see how that is turning out. So what is next? He and Meddler are the biggest problems of League and that has been the case for years now. If I would perform at my job like they do I wouldn't last long. Riot's problem is their inability to deal with the dead wood that has driven into the company.

Awesome! Just what Blitz needed. You can no longer look for opportunities to make a play or use it to escape or re position yourself.

: renekton w changes are in line with riot's new philsophy basically they used a lot of words to say that they want counterpicks to be a thing in league which is why you see leona having flat damage reduction, or poppy countering mobile champions even more, or ahri having her charm stopping dashes again, or kled having healing reduction on Q

Whoever has the first pick in his lane is fucked. Interactive and skillful....
D357R0Y3R (EUW)
: 9.14 changes according to Riot Repertoir (Blitzcrank, Leona, Akali, Lux, Tahm kench)
The changes to {{champion:53}} W will make him incredibly unfun to play and will kill him. The slow was annoying enough but a 1-3 second root.....come on! Even if you hit your Q you can't even use E because you are rooted for 3 seconds. Also you can' follow up with aa's. His W is supposed to be a very much needed gapcloser. Its not like people are standing still in front of you waiting to get hooked. So you use W --> close the gap --> Q --> stand still for 3 seconds and die. At this point what is even the point of the attack speed boost? What a joke.
: At this point we literally have the entire game moderated by a bot reading for keywords and after X amount of reports you'll get forwarded to Riot support where someone dealing with hundreds of requests will have to review your ban likely giving it seconds before making a decision. Its definitely a far cry from how Player Behavior was with Lyte around. Like the worst I can think of that happened under his lead was an off-meta ban of AP Hecarim when the champion was new and a player was dominant with it, though WookieCookie was the one upholding the ban. I can't even think of anything Lyte directly fucked up.

: True damage is destroying the game.
Let me fix that for you: True damage **HAS **destroyed the game
: Malphite changes coming to PBE
The tripple armor bonus was nice earlygame but lategame it scaled off because any additional armor over 100 gives diminishing returns. Also the huge increase of true damage in the game has made armor relatively worse. Rather than the armor bonus I would like 'damage reduction' so he can function as a tank.

: RIOT Game Plz HELP!
Discoheat is what got me into League of Legends with his 'League of Children series' and his channel also suffered the same fate years ago.
: Riot should be more careful with reworks.
Posterchilds of failed reworks: {{champion:82}} and {{champion:90}} and {{champion:154}} The story of Mordekaiser is well known. Malzahar and Zac were functional champs with decent pickrates and dedicated playerbase prior to their reworks, now they are shadows of their former selfs. Malzahar's passive has been nothing but toxic in every eelo and Zac has disappeared from the game all together. I know opinions on this one differ but I see {{champion:44}} as another huge fail. Ever since his rework he can't solo lane any more and he has been nothing but a walking boost of stats for teammates. He has been proven to be problematic in all sort of goldfunnel strategies. He also only has 1 ability that interacts with the enemy and his ult is the pinnacle of non-interactivity.
: This comment tells me the problem is that your tastes no longer align with the game direction. This is a common symptom in long-running games. I know a few people who still play WoW who make similar rants about so many things being wrong. The reality is that game direction changes over time, and when the fundamental game direction changes in a way that is not aligned with your tastes, it leaves you feeling like the game is beyond repair, like you have no idea how to even fix it. When this happens, realistically speaking, you have two choices: complain about EVERYTHING being wrong... or move on and find a new game. That's why I don't play WoW anymore, why I don't play D3 much, etc. etc. etc... the games are no longer what I am seeking. But they're not 'wrong in every way, full stop'... they're just 'wrong for me, individually'.

This is exactly how I feel and why I haven't played a single game this season even though I was diamond last season. I can't stand this game any more.I understand if Riot needs to target a new audience etc but all I want to know from them is "was it worth it?" How many people did they gain and how many did they lost because of this new direction. If they gained more than they lost after the changes, even if it sucks for me, its justified. However if the game is at an alltime low than the new direction clearly isn't justified and League should go back to basics to the game it once was.
: I've been PLAYING since those seasons. I have the Silver Kayle skin(go look it up if you're not sure what that means) - I have most of the early victorious skins - just wasn't quite playing ranked enough back then to get Janna :( I liked the game back then. But nostalgia is a heady pill. It had its crappy things back then too. They were just different crappy things than they are today.

But nostalgia is a heady pill. It had its crappy things back then too. They were just different crappy things than they are today. I have been playing since season 3 and yes some champs had huge issues but I feel like the difference in complains is that complains used to be targetted towards some specific champs, some abilities or an item. It was all very specific and now its more like the general state of the game that is bad and complains are about everything and that is a huge difference. Back then you knew what to work on, what to improve etc, now where do you begin? The game is in shambles.
: This is 'funeral' syndrome. You're only allowed to remember the positives about someone once they're gone. That's why you never see someone at a funeral go "Jim here.... well, Jim was a racist, a bigot, and a womanizer and we all hated him. Thank goodness he's gone, enjoy your time in hell!" - it's always "Jim was a wonderful father and a loving husband, and we'll always remember how much he loved teaching his kids to ride a bike, whether it be their first training wheels or their first motorcycle!"

I am very realistic. Not everything he touched turned into gold but the game was generally much more fun and balanced. Just go to youtube and watch clips from those seasons.

: am i in the wrong for reporting and abandoning my support if they take my cs?
: Maybe as you grew older your friend stopped league because of work, social life, other priorities? It's certainly the case for me, I play since season 3, and I am 30 years old now, still making time to play LOL, but my friends have kids, a wife, work, etc... so they stopped, not because they don't like the game anymore, but they don't want to invest time in league, which I completely understand.

This is partially true. However me and some friends would definitely be inclined to play League again (More casual and less competitive) if the gameplay was good. If they brought out premidseason 5 on a different server we would definitely move over.
Rioter Comments
: We nerf all champions, except Riven and Vayne. - Rito balance team
They have to sell skins, they are the most popular champs along with Lucian. Last year they had almost 35% less revenue than the year before.
: Why is "fun had" not part of balancing the game?
Morello was the guy always looking after our fun. Ever since he left the game has progressively got worse.
: Blitzcrank Changes Heading to PBE
I am a Blitzcrank main since season 3 and for once I welcome changes to one of my mains. Until now every champ I mained got his identity and playstyle completely destroyed over the years by some smart-ass Rioter called Repertoir without doing anything with the feedback (looking specifically at Malzahar and Taric) to the point I never play those champs any more and I uninstalled 7 months ago. These changes to Blitz look very positive and I welcome your approach of maintaining his identity and playstyle and improving the player experience on it for both the user, teammates and the opponents. I might even reinstall League to try him out.
: Patch 9.7 or how to keep making the game unfun for everyone involved
I used to know 15+ people IRL who played league now I know zero. I uninstalled 7 months ago and checked back today if things got any better. I saw Sylas and Neeko and said to myself I don't need this in my life.

Not to reinstall the game. Haven't played for 4-5 months now.

: Admit it: You miss Morello.
The biggest problem is Meddler. He is the main driven force behind all the changes since season 5. He is the one who works on league balance for 3-4 years on a daily basis. He has the biggest say in the actual gameplay not Ghostcrawler. His new position at Riot just envases it.
: garen is busted as fuck and you know it
If Garen is so OP then why was he never picked or banned at Worlds?
: garen is busted as fuck and you know it
Seriously get good at the game. Nobody in diamond and higher will ever complain about Garen and you know why> Because they are good enough at the game to not worry about a mediocre onedimensional champ like Garen If you want to beat Garen learn things about lane management, keeping distance, cs'ing and harass when it is the right opportunity and map awareness.

Bârd (NA)
: Akali's rework is fine design wise, but she's definitely over tuned. Irelia is the same way as Akali. Urgot is Fiora 2.0. His new design is absolutely amazing, but some number tweaks to orient his builds more towards damage would not go amiss. Graves can be balanced, but is cancer when he isn't balanced. He isn't currently balanced. Aatrox has been changed in 5 patches/hotfixes since his rework, and in 4 of those he was buffed. It's no wonder he's too strong right now. Eve is something that nobody has ever liked playing against just because stealth is annoying. That doesn't make Eve a bad design.
> Eve is something that nobody has ever liked playing against just because stealth is annoying. That doesn't make Eve a bad design. The problem with Eve is that she cc-->kills you out of stealth. CCing out of stealth was something that was changed by Morello back in season 3 because it was considered toxic gamedesign with no counterplay. Yes Eve charms has a delay but still its cancer because you don't know the direction from where she is coming and might be running into her instead of away, get charmed and killed. To make it worse her R is an execution that also makes her untargetable and serves as an escape tool.
: Complaint about the recent Changes from the perspective of a Toplane Player
You forgot to mention the nerf to Scorch which was fundamental for his early cheese. They didn't only nerf his Q but also his rune so it was a double nerf and the also made more changes that turned the meta against him so after 1-2 patches where he was stomping bronze and silver his now back at tier D. Completely unplayable and unpickable especially as a blind pick. Same goes for Yorick
Mogwài (EUNE)
: How do i beat akali ?
Defeat her during champ select by banning her. That is how I deal with her and 75% of the players in SoloQ and 86% from the pro's on Worlds agree with me

: Zhonya: the trap item.
It is definitely a noob trap on immobile mages. You are better off buying HP ({{item:3116}} or get the shield from {{item:3048}} and its AP scaling. From my experience {{item:3157}} is only good when you can follow up with a dash or something to actually escape rather than being a sitting duck. That is why it is a great item on {{champion:145}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:38}} for example but not on {{champion:134}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:45}}
