: Popular Opinion: AD assassins are hella overtuned
AD Assassins virtually can't lose lane if they know their basic combos, and AP assassins don't stand a chance. They've made it such a challenge to snowball as an AP assassin, but an AD Assassin, nothing against it. All that AD they stack for their abilities also impacts their autos. So if AP Assassins close the gap, it's like a secret ability in their back pocket. Akali's lane is garbage, they nerfed her to hell. Katarina's laning phase is nonexistent unless you're bad and stand on her daggers. Also, AD Assassins have items specifically designed for their kits, AP assassins do not. The power spike AD characters get from just a single lethality item is insane, but it takes 10 -15 minutes to get gunblade (the healing being the only way Akali or Kat can manage to survive lane). It's just completely out of balance. Especially when Luden's became a mage item. Neither Kat or Akali use mana, so losing access to that extra burst hit really hard and sent mages past them. Mages are the class to play right now. No question about it. It feels really sad to shelf a whole class just because they've been jipped for the season. I agree AD assassins are heavy. And they can build defensive boots like Merc's to evade dmg, AP assassin can't because those sorc shoes are necessary because there is no "AP lethality items." So they lose out on tenacity, too. Not to mention Oblivion orb builds into Morello for grievous wounds, which Kat already has in her kit lol.. AP Assassins just aren't in a good spot, AD assassins have been spoon fed. Unfortunately that's just how the meta works. They're not strong, and you won't scale playing those characters.
: @RIOT: Toxicity & Double Standards
Here's what really gets me. If you don't let players make it out alive for these words, why even make chat filter an option? So you can chum the waters and wait for someone to take the bait. I wasn't being toxic in any way, so this suspension is like a vacay. I don't regret it. But there might be a little kid out there somewhere struggling with his identity, and ol morde is gonna call him gay over and over and maybe that's too much for him. He might not use the f word, but he is gonna hurt him regardless. Riot says its okay to call people gay, but not a f_g. Maybe I woulda got away with homo or queer. But that wouldn't have helped prove my point. Enforce chat filter. Don't let calling people gay slip by.

: @RIOT: Toxicity & Double Standards
Saying f_g, especially to ones self, shouldn't have the weight of saying bomb on an airplane. Lets look at the n word. If you take out the er, and replace it with an a, the context changes, and people can say it as much as they want. At least by Riot's computer standards that does the judging. Now I've stopped being phased by the F word years back. And it wasn't being used as an insult. But like I said. Bomb in an airplane. Riot sees b__tch but doesn't care if you really are british and talking about your dogs. A blanket sweep of deemed cuss words/deplorable language just instant bans. And how is that equivalent to a 14 day suspension over a chat ban? If he actually did flame me, he had the toxic behavior. I said bad word, I shouldnt be abke to say anything. He is actually toxic, yet gets to play freely. That. Makes. Zero. Sense.

It's perfectly fine and logical. I supported it 100% when they made it. But it's just that ON TOP of her horrible laning phase.

: Katarina is so underwhelming to play now
So I did some "workshopping" and found that Arcane Comet with Nullifying Orb is actually a far better setup. The Orb doesn't account for much, and if you go for domination, you wont get Triumph heals for enemy lingering ignites. But. Yeah. It feels really really bad to put her int he sorcery line when she is an assassin, but it might get me through this horrible place she is in.

GripaAviara (EUNE)
: So .. when you gonna balance Lux?
So uhhhhh, Lux's early game potential went wayyyy down this preseason. That "Level 6" nuke thing you're talking about? As a Lux main, there hasn't been a single game where my mid opponent didn't take the stopwatch keystone. That's one wasted ult guaranteed. Her E poke with arcane comet is indeed reliable, but it really doesn't do much even paired with Scorch. I noticed playing against it more than as Lux. I was Kat and ate several E's but it was never a real issue. Any mid lane champion that can close the gap can nuke her or you can buy a banshee's, zhonya's, or merc treads and easily disrupt her combo. She needs all of it to succeed. She misses one spell and you've got her dude. At the very least you'll survive. Lux isn't a late game champion. She retains relevance thru crowd control, but it's also all skill shot based. She misses any of it and she's gonna be dipping out to recover her cooldowns and tossing an e to her allies on the way. "If she gets ahead the match feels retarded." *psssst* Dodge something, bro.

Any tips please? Do you play Viktor/Rumble? It's designed as a Vector Cast, making its "off-smart cast" feel a lot easier to handle. When I'm in a game and watch Taliyah's Send there Ws in a million different directions that don't have tactical benefits, the first thing I say is "Take it off smart cast." It really just does take practice.

You can do math right? Spell A (single target) - 100 dmg * [.15] = 15 health returned. Spell B (AoE) - 100 dmg per target * (3 targets) = 300 dmg * [.05] = 15 health returned. There's a reason AoE has a lower spell vamp ratio. You can hit multiple targets with it. Hit three (or more) and you have an equal/higher chance to return as much health. Kat's ult naturally finds three targets. Her spin can chunk a whole team. Also. Her AA+E+AA is three single target hits back to back. That's fairly good for quick trades. Nashor's tooth? On Kat? Please.... don't. xD
