: You don't balance competitive games around lower levels of play where cheese playstyles and weak strategies can thrive. That defeats the purpose of the game being competitive.
Hehe, but yet people want people to stop balancing around the LCS. Kinda' strange. By the way, Bronze+Silver is around 88% of the playerbase, so...
: well I did use Global.
Global rank, not global itself. We're not dealing with Korea here, until they invade.

Global rank stats on Yi matter a bit more when he's *carrying* people through the lower ranks when they don't deserve it. At higher ranks, either they know exactly what to do to shut him down when fed and/or they pick the top-tier picks that can fight him and/or they expect him to be trash and know how to abuse that, i.e with the above clip @ Kennen. Yes and no. Yi shouldn't be broken in either rank. However, acting as if he is a God is going too far.
He's not unkillable, however... Conquerer... mixed with Guinsoo just broke him to the point that he's beyond frustrating and beyond a bit too strong. HOWEVER... that is just my opinion on it.

: Fixing crit damage on adcs was the most complained about problem on the Boards! And people only stopped complaining about it when Riot announced they were working on it! Other that that point, I actually don't understand what you're upset about. You say, in two places, two ideas that seem to be in total conflict to me. >tells me they're going to just tweak damage values by 5 on most of these patches until next years pre-season >isn't the size of the change as much as it is what they're choosing to address I agree with the second one, which is why I think a time of smaller balance changes would be a *good* idea. They can tackle the problems that matter the most without causing wild disruption. Meddler already said that tackling snowball is high on the list, and again, that's one of the *most* complained about problems on the Boards. So if you, me, and Meddler are all on the same page that small, directed changes are needed to solve the issues in the game at present, what's the problem? That seems like a good thing to me.
I think he's saying that their large patches which consist of minor adjustments to big issues don't quite work. Small, directed changes are just fine -- but... I still have to ask, how did League even end up in this state with people complaining for all of six months about it and it's only being resolved ***now***?
: "They increased the ELO range in matchmaking in order to shorten queue times". Brevity is the soul of intelligence. Riot hasn't acknowledged it because it's a deliberate design choice. It's not an issue. In 99% of ELOs the skill difference between one or two division is minimal. A gold 1 player is not significantly more skilled at the game then a Gold 5 player etc. Stop using the existence of players a tier or two below you on your team as an excuse for losing.
Ask anyone, even Silver 5 and Silver 2 have vast differences. I feel like you're not seeing the whole picture; It becomes more and more of a problem when more and more ranks blend into one-another because Riot decided that people in equal tiers (and therfor about equal skill) don't deserve to be matched together.

SO MUCH TO ASK *Faints*
I think the biggest problem with Conquerer is "kill people without any defenses" now means "leap onto the tank and mash them to death"{{champion:24}} because Conquerer wasn't properly tested on on-hit/AS champions before release. That's why everyone's complaining - Conquerer itself is okay (I guess, but I thought they wanted less True Damage?) but it's effectiveness against tanks isn't.
: Perhaps it's your friends who have a problem. I concede we who play this game can be fustrated by it and our teams from time to time. However, I'd point out that there may be something wrong with your friends if you are placing the blame in the game.** Please be aware I'm not trying to troll you or your friends.** Like maybe some of them are going through a rough time irl, so it manifests as anger in game. I worked in an automotive manufacturing plant for many years, and that sort of job is _actually_ very fustrating and full of stress. I noticed most people could handle it though and those who frequently lost their temper over little things like someone putting the part on a rack backwards would send them into a rage. An overreaction to the situation at hand. Most of the time it turned out the person who lost it was going through a tough time outside of work. Just a guess based on my experience. I rarely am angry enough to mention anything in the boards and only occasionally lose my temper in game. When I do it's brief because in general, I'm a happy person, with a good life. And as fustrating as this game and teammates can be I find this game very fun.
Yeah, that's definitely true - they can be frustrated by things outside the game. Some of them, at least, are having a bit of a rough patch and maybe that could extend to the people who I spoke of. Thank you. I still find League fun sometimes, to the point I'm at least willing to play it. I'm just unhappy seeing the people I know go from carefree to incredibly toxic.

: as nightmare has said it is the shuriman shuffle not drift i dont see where you got drift from seeing how sion is the only champion that people think of when you say drift in league
"Shuffle" doesn't have the same ring. Preference.

: 100 × .80 = 80 80 x . 80 = 64 100-64=36 He should be closer to 36% true damage than 40% of past math trends hold true still
I thought it was additive, not multiplicative because, well, it's true damage - what you see is what you get, and I assumed that applied to both Conqueror and IE. My bad, sorry.

: Anklespankin did a video. Easy 1v5 Penta under Nexus turrets. Not even full build. 1/3 of his total damage was true damage. Had roughly 4x more damage than the next closest person. Didn't get overly fed either early.
This will be so fun to see.

: > Old dev team - caitlyn has an oppressive lane phase and also scales incredibly well into late with high range and mobility, so her weakness should be mid game and overall low dps. New Dev team - lets make every caitlyn ability do extremely high amounts of damage , higher ad ratios than assassins on her passive , Q, W, E, AND R!!! (objective fact, she has higher ad ratios on all her abilities than assassins) What the fuck is this shit??? A caitlyn will rarely use abilities in an actual fight except for her E, since it gives her range advantage and a headshot. But using Q and/or W midfight is a complete loss of DPS, so her ability scalings are completely irrelevant. Her Q is also so telegraphed, that if you get hit, you deserve to lose a chunk of health from it. If you can't mechanically move out of a trap as it is arming, you deserve to lose that fight. Her ratios are high because she doesn't build damage. Your core build is Shiv-IE-RFC. Pls tell me how her massive ratios makes her OP, when cailtyn primarily build crit. Caitlyns midgame is still trash and if she deosn't win lane with at least a 30 CS advantage, she is going to be a nonfactor, until she gets her RFC.
I have to ask, when a Caitlyn prefers to build {{item:3031}}{{item:3087}} over anything else with her AD ratios (that are higher than most Assassins' ratios, I agree) don't you think there's a problem when most of what makes an Assassin an Assassin, is their ability to 100-0 people through their damage, acquired from their bases/ratios?
: This is an Aprill fools joke right? But tbh I feel like if you do it right it may not be that bad, you have poke and cc. The only thing is you may steal a lot of cs by accident with your passive, but if you can get past that problem I can see it working.
Um sure! Yeah it is! {{champion:103}} {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}

: Why I got furious when NB said "I hate Lol, the company, and the community."
I heavily disagree on Riot listening to the community, and I also heavily disagree on NB3 saying the community in and of itself is bad. This whole issue with ADC being busted as hell and every single game having a fiesta down Bot gets really frustrating, real quick - and despite all the complaints about that (and damage creep) none of them go resolved. Every company has flaws, and NB3 is entitled to his opinion - and you to yours - but I disagree with both statements: that Riot listens, and that the community is bad.
: Somewhat valid reason, but like the devs said " don't listen to chat "

: No, please god don't make ff at 10 a thing, majority of the playerbase is below Plat and in those elos literally every game can be thrown because the enemy team is as bad as yours. But adding ff at 10 will just make ppl even more tilted and spamming it since 10 min and a lot of them going afk if your team doesn't surrender.

: I believe he is confused. You are referring to the Riot team while he was talking about his team in game.
Far from it. I was just talking to him, and not everyone including him. There is no DM option. My O.P is just an observation; There's very little you can argue because it's just what I've seen for myself. It can be wrong and, hell, probably is... but! 'tis just an observation anyway.

: Before Runes Reforged {{item:3401}} {{item:3022}} was my core on {{champion:14}} support. Did real well with it. But things changed, I moved to other things. I think Titanic Hydra could work on Sion support now, if you like the playstyle it provides and know what you are doing. (which might take a few games to get used to it) (saw you removed your other thread before I could post, so posting it here to show up in your "inbox")
Thank you. I'll try it!

I said "before", and similarly Warwick's just an example - the idea of taking a dragon before Lv6 is something he was nerfed because of before, and yet it's now perfectly-fine for no real reason at all.

The entire team waiting in the bush south of the red, north of the krugs. There seems to be a lot of counterplay to sudden, instant death. Don't say "ward it" because most CC has a longer range than the warding trinket.

Good game design decrees that everyone should have a playstyle that fits them - including the people like me who don't like to CS much. Thankfully, there is a playstyle (or three: jungle, support and waveclear-mage) for it.
