: New conquer is an adc/dps mage rune
Don't forget Kennen, I think he'll be op with it.
: What elo are you talking about? She is struggling in low and high elo.
average among plat+ http://na.op.gg/champion/statistics
Kaynz (EUNE)
: What! How so? A week ago she was monitored for being weak xD u sure we play the same game?
http://na.op.gg/champion/statistics click jungle and you'll see for plat+ she's performing great. might not be karthus but shes 2nd among all junglers in the teir list.
Ęvelynn (NA)
: how did evelynn land with the jungle exp changes as a level 6 reliant champion?
Her winrate shows she's one of the strongest junglers atm.
Kaynz (EUNE)
: Hey Meddler! Any info about the junglers? Especially level 6 spike junglers ({{champion:28}}). She could use a +5 base MS owo imo without breaking her.
She is one of the strongest junglers atm.
Xzq (EUNE)
: Any news/ideas for {{champion:44}} ? Skins ? Almost 1000days since he got his last skin , Changes ? Buffs /nerfs ? What do you think of his current state ?
What about jayce he hasn't gotten a skin in about equally as long.

: AP item to build from QSS?
Mages are inherently ranged and so they are inherently safer than melees from those spells. Imagine trying to kill a anivia if she was able to build hourglass and an ap qss item. It just wouldn't be fun to play against.

Why wouldn't kennen be good with is he has all the resources to use it better than any bruiser lol.

Cass, kennen, azir are just a couple who would abuse tf out of this rune more than any bruiser in the game and they dont really play a bruiser playstyle.
: not just riven.(riven already abuses current conqueror like crazy) ranged champions will abuse it much harder if this current version goes out on live.
exactly my point
: Nobody needs help killing tanks when the only one getting played is Sion (and to some lesser extent, Sejuani).

Rioter Comments
: And now realize PTA exists. ^^ There might be some rangeds able to use it - but even stuff like {{champion:236}} who'd get it stacked fast should be better of with PTA. The scariest user I can think of right now would be {{champion:69}}
Don't forget something like kennen. It'll be free wins on kennen I dont know what theyre thinking this is a terrible change
kargish (EUW)
: An assassin does not have to one shot in order to be effective
Pyke does not need to be 15-0 to one shot someone he can do so just fine early game. Midlane he can dominate early but he needs to finish the game fast or else all of his end the game early potential is gone.
: i think when they do something like a small ad lowered or increased they're really just throwing it out into the open game for data collection. To see how this ever so slight change will affect his overall game performance. This will allow them in a later patch to be more accurate in a nerf/buff.
When looking at jax, I feel like the ad was geared towards worsening his jungle clears for lower elo play where as the q dmg being lowered was for top lane jax.
Rioter Comments
: Bad mouthing/Taunting the enemy team
there is a line drawn, but an exchange of words is normal just over doing it is bad
: I have 17+ friends who don't play this game because riven/lee dash all in kits never got a nerf
You literally state no merit other than frustration of losing for your "nerfs"
: Deaths seem to have little impact on grade
Grades are based on how everyone who plays that champ does in a game. So if they are getting an S- or better then that means their Farm, KDA, damage and etc were way above average to that of the average performance of that champ within that amount of game time. Its not all KDA.

I also cant think of anything that would be the same and its not trynd specifically its CRITS which a lot of champions use
Yea sure its crits, but trynd is tied to RNG early game. I don't have trouble against trynd at all usually, but if he gets 3 crits in 5-6 autos early game thats pretty stupid lol
ßurst (NA)
: I mean you could argue a champion based all around RNG is not good champ design but hes not unbeatable
on the other hand do i think he needs a rework? absolutely hes outdated

I mean you could argue a champion based all around RNG is not good champ design but hes not unbeatable
: do you not like Hashinshin
: Akali has an extremely low win rate and an insanely high ban rate. She's not that strong but she's really unfun to play against. She's the perfect example of bad game design.
Its low sure but a 42% winrate isnt exactly the same as a 45% winrate. Just like a 50% winrate isnt the same as a 53% winrate
: Jax has ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME. The only thing to ever change was his Dodge passive was stuck on his E. Yasuo - Ignores at least one attack against him, no matter how powerful. - Can effectively cut your team in half, for the entire duration of his windwall since it is an **IMMORTAL PIECE OF CRAP** - Dashes around the board like an ice skater Actually, yeah, his windwall is my only problem with him, Jax is just Jax.
No, Jax is really strong rn all due to conq and ER he would arguably still be super strong even without ER
Siddward (NA)
: Game is Doodoo - gotta uninstall again
I mean its preseason not everything will be balanced lol
: Riot broke MMR Is there any reason to play ranked?
Well considering you had a sub 50% win ratio before going on the winstreak its seems fine. Its going to take a lot more consistency than just 1 or 2 winstreaks after playing close to 200 games to get you anywhere. Also its preseason and they recently reworked the ranked system, so yea things will be a little different for the time being.
Ozzburne (NA)
: Yeah thanks for the Akali nerf guys that 42% win rate really needed to be trimmed down to size. /s
where are you getting a 42% winrate from lmfao Edit: in your last 20 game youve destroyed 5/6 games although norms sure. still 5/6 games.
: Yay the semester is over!
Are you in college or high school?
: Cassiopeia passive consideration riot?
If you want to complain about useless passives jayces passive gives him moves speed for a couple seconds and the ability to move through minions.
: I agree. it had a smooth build path. buy {{item:1036}} {{item:1006}} off the get go, farm a little bit to buy another {{item:1036}} then you'll have enough to buy {{item:3077}} (which costs the same as one more {{item:1036}} if you have the three items that build into it)

The junglers are more so the ones that got it nerfed and the rest was laners. In short it was too inexpensive for what it does.

I managed to do well enough in highschool that I'm nearly done with my gen eds i only need a couple more classes and that will be it. It will be nice to only focus on my majors much earlier than others

I'm 75% sure its because of junglers and then the other 25% is because of laners

It's very simple, 20% of the damage that they would deal with their ability does true dmg
Rioter Comments
: Minions fights don't count is the problem so lets just say they did for example. 5hp every 4 seconds and you could stay in battle (which means taking damage or giving it) 60sec of straight battle gives you 75 hp so to make this great you need to stay in constant battle and if you let them sit free farming then you have more problems then this rune. Aftershock is the clear winner of those two but is only good if you can get close enough to cc someone. All of them have a purpose just all three suck. As it stands right now with so much being put in crit and % of health damage/speed most tanks get melted fast with the extra damage now added in to. Then the rest of the tree is basically nonsense unflinching is not really worth using cause damage is to high so if you are still slowed you're still pretty much dead. Demolish should have never been dropped into the game towers are in bad enough shape and this is just snowballing the game more on certain champs but i got a feeling this one will become a norm soon. Conditioning is the only good t3 skill the other two are trash hands down but at that point the game is usually 2/3 of the way over while everyone else has power off the line. T4 is total crap it's like they just threw random crap in the resolve tree like well this is already full what do we do with it.....is resolve full? no toss it there. Edit: Just used grasp of the undying it added nothing to my health fighting minions or jungle camps at all. At the end of the game with a few team fights i racked up a whopping 20 hp and this was with me ganking lanes too no fight lasted the 4 seconds outside of team fights.
*Facepalm* Do you not understand what stack means... You hit minions for 4 secs and grasp of the undying is ready for use on champions. The mastery was the same until they nerfed it. Now if you don't understand this wording I can't do nothing for you.

I just want to know because they removed it before because it gave tanks too much power and champs that weren't specifically tailored to the mastery(well rune now) used it too successfully early game. have you seen the other tank runes? they are complete garbage and getting 5hp every four seconds in battle is hardly game breaking when you have to be able to stay in battle that long which is why no one really takes it. It's a far cry compared to the old system in runes i was at 218 health at 18 and any current combo just starts with 130. The other key stone they give that is every 8 monsters is trash to so i really don't see the issue here. The healing is subpar and will not save you against all the current damage added plus the damage it gives is ok but good luck using it.
What are you talking about, the point is that it's ridiculous that they don't have to stay in battle and can just farm minions and have the rune up at all times. How are the other tank runes bad? aftershock gives you dmg 20-+30% resistances for 2.5s after you cc someone the guardian one is the bad one.
: Yeah I have no idea. They have a few stay in combat runes that have strict time requirements, yet they make grasp stronger than before even though it's already proven to be problematic in the past?!? I'm stumped.
Exactly my point.
