: Irelia battle bunny
Funny how Battle Bunny theme looks less slutty than "ANIME WARRIOR PRINCESS MAGICAL GIRL" skins that Riot has been making lately.
: Riot is promoting toxicity
lol Tyler1 is an icon of a toxic player reforming. Not the hardest concept to grasp.

: > Some reworks ended up with champions that merely mimicked or actually went under the playrate of the old versions (evelynn is a notable example: https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/stats/evelynn). They may have a spike of popularity during their rework but a lot of times it bottoms out rather fast. Something as simple as a visual update actually is about as reliable at shooting up a champion's playrate as an actual rework. Yes, some. Not all. Also, Evelynn may not have had the same popularity spike as 2014/2015 Eve, but since her rework in October 2017 she's been consistently played across the board which is definitely a huge positive. https://i.gyazo.com/b5ffa22cb9eff0308ace4f7426c34866.png > Actually I believe the track record goes in the opposite direction with the reworks creating huge balance problems. I mean it's not even far in the past. Irelia, Akali, Aatrox and Evelynn all have glaring balance problems that have made them nightmares to balance. The first 3 in particular have had tons of stuff STRIPPED from their reworked kits since their inception and still to this day pose balance problems. Again, not all reworks are perfect, but the large majority of them do not cause massive balancing problems like Akali and Aatrox did/do and instead cause the champion to be healthier and more unique. This includes class updates like the Battlemages update (with Cassiopeia, Syndra, Ziggs, Fiddlesticks, Anivia, etc.) and the Marksmen update (with Graves, Corki, MF, Quinn, etc.) in addition to individual updates like Ezreal's, Warwick's, Fiora's, Miss Fortune's, Ashe's, etc. The majority of reworks accomplish what they intend to do, but nobody ever acknowledges them because the bad ones (Akali, Galio) are _really_ bad. > The only rework I can remember that was made for the express purpose of changing their balance position was Soraka back in season 5. And it was a clear rush job at that. The new reworks are simply there for designers to flex creativity and create something completely different, not to address some inherent issue (and even if they did almost never would have needed a full rework to begin with). What? - Warwick was given a huge modernization and his massive, problematic point & click supression was removed. - Poppy's problematic ultimate was removed in addition to being given two very unique features in the form of W/R while keeping Q/E the same. - Shen's awkward Tank>Fighter>Support design philosophy was shifted into more of a Fighter>Tank one with his point & click harass being removed while keeping his E/R the same. _(And keep in mind, this is a rework I personally don't enjoy)_ - Again, not personally a huge fan, but even someone like Mordekaiser had an objectively successful rework. He went from a clunky, underplayed, outdated and **INCREDIBLY** buggy champion to a viable and incredibly unique Juggernaut. His playrate literally got multiplied about 7x over. One glaring issue wasn't all these champions had, either. Most of them had problems at the core of their design and needed to be changed for that reason. > You're going to have to be a little less vague. How has the majority of reworks helped league? Most of them have been shattered by pro play and left in a completely unplayable state for most regular league players. Good luck maining sej, poppy, galio, irelia, etc.. > Yeah, you're right. I guess I can't play Sej, Poppy, Galio, or Irelia. I guess I just have to resort to playing Heimerdinger, Xerath, Kassadin, Gragas, Rengar, Nidalee, Sona, Cassiopeia, Renekton, Soraka, Viktor, Sion, Tristana, Zilean, Veigar, Ashe, Ryze, Gangplank, Fiora, Miss Fortune, Caitlyn, Darius, Garen, Graves, Quinn.... See what I'm getting at? Again, the majority of reworks have been fine. Both full VGU and simple gameplay updates that only change 1 or 2 abilities. > I'd argue a lot of reworks hurt the average player. This is false, because as mentioned above there are plenty of viable, healthy, and popular reworked champions currently being played by the average player. In fact, I fall in to that category. I'm a completely average, casual player and I have great character diversity across my account(s). > I'd also like to argue that a number of reworks have been reverted too: > > Kog, Fizz, Rengar, and LeBlanc are notable examples of Riot fucking champions so hard they had to revert them. Yes, _and for the third or fourth time_, not all reworks are perfect. I'm not saying Riot has been 100% on the mark, because that's not true. There are some fucking horrible reworks, not all of them have been reverted.

Now if you look at her BAN rate https://i.imgur.com/eEA7XKq.png[/img] You can clearly see that despite being played less new Evelynn is banned more. You could say "it's not TOO bad", but I say it's not good enough to justify a VGU in the first place. I don't see new Evelynn being a fun champion unless she's overpowered. I also don't see new Evelynn being a more fun champion to play against than old Evelynn. And neither do the stats.

Old Evelynn was great, much more fun than the current one. Nothing is sacred though, they rework things just for the sake of change. It rarely actually solves anything. Newly reworked champions turn out to be cancerous, impossible to balance and unfun to play against. But they're new and fresh and usually have new sexy anime skins, so everybody loves it.

Yeah it's been known for a while. New gen CPU and a decent GPU from like 2012 (i.e. Radeon HD 7770) will get your comfortably above 200 FPS at all times.

: Who cares about winning, I'm there to have fun. How is 18% bonus damage on Akali or 12% on LB 'playing and interacting' with them? They jump in and delete you before you can even react. Swap one problem for another. As a tank I'd take Vel'koz poke I can dodge over LB or Akali's bonus damage any day.

As a tank I'd take Vel'koz poke I can dodge over LB or Akali's bonus damage any day. Under the old system taking Vel'Koz poke will literally be your entire day every day. Under the new system you might occasionally get to play vs a fed Akali. Doesn't sound comparable to me. Bench breeds cancer comps, that I agree with.

: I've played Vel'koz 4 times in aram in the last 2 months, 2 very recently and I felt weak. I've played 45% win rate Poppy 10+ times. I'm having more fun as Poppy, barreling in like an numpty, stunning someone on a wall, letting my team deal the damage than standing 2 screens away spamming abilities. I'd rather play Braum, Trundle, Tahm and Skarner (you seen his circles? They cover most the map, it's great) over any assassin. I actually think Bench is one of the reasons ARAM is a little broken at the moment, it allows for high poke/damage team comps as people can choose from rejected champs forming the correct set of OP champs. I personally want the bench removed.

I personally want the bench removed. I don't understand your complaints then. Microbalancing is literally the reason you're allowed to play Poppy and win. Before they made this change this was cancer of a game mode littered by petty ARAM accounts with nothing but poke mages unlocked. Riot made it so you can play and interact with the enemy on *any champion* rather than praying for poke comps and it's awesome.

Yeah there is this bench at the top that usually has multiple champs. I know you want to play your favorite poke mage, but maybe you should expand your horizons.
: Riot has to be better when it comes to players intentionally ruining games
Funny how people are saying that a 1 minute DC can ruin a game, and yet someone actually won with an intentional feeder on their team. Tells a lot about how "balanced" the matches really are.
BleuFace (NA)
: Change NEW Client to any language you want
Aaaand of course the main motivation is to turn on weeb moaning and squealing
: Micro-balancing ARAM has unintended consequences and should be stopped
ARAM mains should just learn to live with the fact that it's time to main assassins and get up close and personal instead of sitting back on Lux and Ziggs. Yeah, times change and you should adapt. This iteration of ARAM is much more fun. Even in losses you actually get to interact with the enemy instead of watching yourself getting bombarded with skillshots and pushed around while you wait for that 0.5 second opening to actually do anything.

: My numbers were off but my point still stands. I don't feel I'm doing anything with Vel'koz abilities. I don't see how i can be misguided from my Kai'sa point, she is is doing too much damage when I can't even see her. I just want all that stuff gone. I'd take having to actually dodge skills over being deleted by assassins any day.

I think the microbalancing should just be more obvious to people so they don't trap themselves by picking the gutted former OP's. Other than that ARAM right now is fresher than ever. It finally shifted from the game mode decided by poke and front to back teamfighting to an actual **fun** game mode

You have to manually update profiles on op.gg for them always to be up to date. If you want the most accurate info you can look them up directly in the client.

: Is Matchmaking rigged or am i missing somethig?
Your mistake was playing ranked during the last month of the season when elo boosters are swarming the low ranks. Most of the time someone goes 0/14 in lane it's because the enemy was an elo booster.

That's not even a bad match. If someone has a massive amount of mastery points and yet is still in gold, you shouldn't be afraid of them.
Phäsed (NA)
: The Old League
League classic would be nice. But Riot won't do it. It's really weird to not be able to play things you grew so fond of, because they are no longer out there to be played (reworked champs). Normally when it comes to gaming you can always go back and have a nostalgic experience, but that doesn't work with League, unfortunately.

: TBH I just played against a Yuumi Garen bot-lane today. Completely lost. There's very little counter-play to it. Yuumi gets to harass for free most of the time, and the threat of the Garen silence+movespeed on his q makes things difficult in lane. In theory the only way to counter it is ranged poke, but with Yuumi's q being controlled, it's a little difficult to play safe and utilize distance and hiding behind minions. She'll just go around them for 120 damage every few seconds until you HAVE to give them the lane priority.

This was about having your fingers in a proper position. Or maybe you should train your index finger, which is supposed to be your moste agile finger and you reduce it to only use R and F.

: It was because it was something that was being used constantly in pro play, which meant that nidalee had to be constantly nerfed because pro players got far better clear speeds and all ins on her than non pro players. Basically the issue was the consistency of it. Nidalees was very easy to do, and do consistently so long as you knew how to. I am not a super mechanical player and even I could do it in the jg to speed up my clear, although I wasn't great at using it in actual fights.

If they thought it was simple, they would have did the opposite and left it in.
: Riot Game Developers Hate Their Longtime Players and Champions
oh you'll get your new models, you'll get them along with the new champions that will replace the existing ones xd to be fair at least Pantheon doesn't seem like a different champion, he actually feels the same but better

: Akali's rework has failed and she needs either a revert or another rework
So has Evelynn's rework, but who's counting? Pre-VGU: this champion is hard to balance Post-VGU: even harder to balance {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: Why can't Riot move to a fully transparent MMR ranked system?
Because it will make it obvious that ranked matches are blatantly fixed with a certain team winning in mind to keep the the overall picture perfectly balanced at 50%.

: Day 1 of asking Riot to bring back Nexus Blitz
: remember when you could distinguish what champion was which? ahh.. good times

Some skin themes make champions look too alike, if I could turn off the skins on my side I would never complain about them again.
: Iron Stylus fucking sucked though. Remember how half assed Quinn and her release skin were (and still are tbh), he worked on that one.

Which skin is that? Base Quinn is dope and badass.

: I'm a introverted person and I feel super affected by this. I used to think that I could play Video games all day and realize my true potential. Yet, I was a never ranker in League of Legends and never took a step ahead of my life to actually learn the game. I became a casual player for years and now I don't feel as good when I play video games anymore when I had the job, it wasn't the best job but it was a job anyway. I felt very obligated to be in a workable environment and become professional somehow but I have the feeling of failure of my life once I realize I could have ranked and could have enjoyed playing the game and learning to become a master. Instead I just play ARAM all day with no exception and getting tied up with everything else in plain sight that I just want to work out and solve my problems. I used to do that before and now I've gone too addicted to League in general. I am just a man, who had gone insane should he have played Ranked for once in his life and not regret it. It would have felt like work but the outcome would have been different and not put his own foot in his own neck. I am that rare person and I feel sad most of the time today. I should have followed my heart. {{champion:163}}

You barely socialize when you play League and it's always your choice to engage into it.
