No fix for the unplayably laggy client during champion select that many players are experiencing?
: Patch 9.9 notes
Why does Riot feel the need to just unnecessarily remove jungle items from the game that are situational? Why remove hunter’s potion like they removed poacher’s dirk last year? Riot, if you don’t think the item is useful, then you don’t have to fucking buy it - but you don’t need to remove it for the people who DO find value in it.
: Honestly the rift scuttler change is the best thing they've done to the jungle in a very long time. If you're playing a tank jungler (God bless you) and the enemy jungler is, say, Vi or Kayn, you just might as well not even walk over to the river because you know they are going to eviscerate the scuttles the moment they spawn, and you too if you dare challenge them. Pushing the scuttle timers back gives junglers with less power a chance to set up some vision or coordinate with an ally to actually have a chance not to be behind for the first 15 minutes because they can't 1-shot scuttle crabs. I would still really like to see purple and/or green smite come back. Smite color options are really stale now. Old purple smite allowed so many cool niche junglers.
I totally agree that as a tank jungler myself I like the idea of not being forced to fight 15 seconds after clearing my first camp, but I absolutely HATE the way Riot springs these changes with MASSIVE implications on us without any regard for how it might affect champion or game balance for the next few patches - mark my words, this scuttle change will make some junglers who are weak lvl 2 but strong lvl 3 (thinking of Elise, etc) insanely overpowered now while the current strong lvl 2 junglers (and mids) will be heavily nerfed by this change because they won’t have as much reason to be picked if nobody is fighting at lvl 2 anymore. There is nothing in these patch notes as far as compensation buff/nerfs to balance the jungle champs that this change will obviously impact. They’re trying to sell off this change like it’s minimal impact and won’t f**k up balance because gold and xp will be higher from the later crab spawn, but I know that’s a load of crap because because it’d BARELY be more gold at lvl 3 than lvl 2 as it scales from 70-120g based on level 1-18. What pisses me off is that after Riot has spent the last 25 patches since the crab changes LAST mid-season buffing and nerfing different junglers to deal with the insane balance implications that those changes had, now we can throw all those changes out the window because more balance changes will need to be made to deal with THIS balance change. It’s a never-ending cycle of Riot fixing broken things and then breaking their fixes again. I love Jatt, I respect him as a jungler, I love his idea behind reducing pressure on lvl 2 jungle/laner skirmishing, and I’m excited that he’s on the balance team, but I don’t think the way this change is being rolled out is going to be good for the next few patches while balance will be affected. It’s unbelievably obvious that strong lvl 2 junglers and midlanders won’t be as useful now, and there are no changes in this patch to compensate for that.

: A Silly Sej Suggestion
From a Sejuani one-trick, the short answer why that's bad is that adding mechanics that are exploitable in pro play, such as the melee-stacking-stun that led to 4-melee comps with Irelia mid for example, is unhealthy for her for the 99.9% of the Sejuani-playing playerbase. It makes her get nerfed because of pros literally every other patch, while still being trash tier (lowest winrate jungler in the game rn) for everyone in solo-queue. Solo queue teams dont take advantage of the exploitable aspects of her kit.
: @Riot - Can you please remove the delayed spawn on raptors? The change is intended to stop laners from eating the camp, but the implementation is going to hurt weaker junglers like {{champion:32}} {{champion:120}} that rely on the {{item:1039}} trick to save {{item:2031}} and not die to every meta jungler. Kicking the little guys when they're already down with this change. {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} EDIT: Few people asking why this matters. The delayed spawn stops you from using this trick to do red first and stay at full hp. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q3nudNEOcs

: You have several options: * Punish her poor waveclear by pushing her into tower and backing up, forcing her to use Distortion on the wave (i.e., not you) * Poke her so she can't safely all-in while staying safe. Don't step up too far. She falls off hard into the late game because her teamfight game is garbage. LeBlanc is good at one thing and one thing only, and that is killing one person. Like laning against most assassins, your job is not to kill her, it's to survive her and let your tanks handle her later on. * Buy Banshee's Veil. It screws up her combos and makes you require much more resources to take down.

: What the actual hell is wrong with the balance team
I respect your opinion, but I don't think ADC's are unfairly weak. I don't think dying to a 4-man dive means your class is weak. Every class has strengths and weaknesses, and there are trade-offs to playing each class. If you play scaling supertanks like Maokai for example, you have to accept that you are not going to be able to put out any meaningful damage but you will be survivable. If you play a scaling marksman, you have to accept that you are going to put out massive damage at the cost of being survivable. That's how the game is intended to work. Also, dying to a 4-man dive doesn't mean your class is weak. Everyone dies to 4-man dives. If 4 people can't kill 1 or 2 people under turret, that isn't very fair to be honest.
: stat-stick of stoicism
yeah I agree it could use an Ornn upgrade, but I don't think the solution is more stats. I think the Ornn upgrade should add some passives/actives like the Ardent Censor passive, The Redemption Active, the Duskblade damage proc, and the Warmog's regen all in one. This way a broad range of classes can find good use for this item. Because right now It's way too weak. In fact, I don't think I've ever even seen anyone bother to buy it in ranked
: well at this point I think Sejuni is only for coordinated teams not for solo que.

Unfortunately she is even weak in competitive/coordinated play. In fact, Riot specifically nerfed her to be weak in competitive play so that she wouldn't be picked at worlds.

Olaf is weak? Come cry with me and the mains of champs that are actually weak. {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}} {{champion:113}} {{item:3070}} {{item:3070}}
: i need suggestions
I would have said Sejuani last year (for a CC-engage jungler) but I one-tricked her and now Riot completely ruined her and isn't doing anything productive to fix her - only ruining her further with proposed new changes. Now I would suggest Amumu. His winrate has been really high the entire season, and Riot doesn't look like they have any plans to nerf him. Also, I don't know what elo you are, but if you can learn to play Lee Sin like a god then he's a pretty rewarding and versatile jungler.
: Season 8 was the worst jungling year for anybody that didn't play Graves
: Does "Battle for Freljord" secondary quest still happen?
Yeah it works but you'll never see it because Sejuani is unpickable at this point. 44% winrate (lowest WR and Play Rate she's ever had) totally useless. I wish I picked a different champ to main Riot makes me want to kms
: Riot, please buff Irelia.
Why are people focusing on iReLiA? personally I think Sejuani is too OP right now at 44% winrate and 0.8% play rate I think the balance team should be nerfing Sejuani like wtf

: I think this visual concept on Sejuani can be good,what do you think?
idk tbh kinda looks like one of the little rats from the third Ice Age movie
: Hitbox hello?
get outplayed clearly
: Sej and Ornn are strong champs. Solo Q player just dont play them correctly because theyre teamfight oriented champs. Sej just got nerfed again actually

Solo Q player just dont play them correctly because theyre teamfight oriented champs. Sej just got nerfed again actually lmao no as a Sejuani one-trick i can PROMISE you she is not strong. Was playable two patches ago (pros playing on 8.16 still, but she is unplayable now on 8.18, sorry)
: I feel super bad for Sejuani players
Its good to hear other champ mains feel bad for us, because Sejuani mains feel completely ignored right now. Our champ is unplayable for the 99.9% of us who aren't pro players, and Riot does not acknowledge that she needs some serious attention. Maining Sejuani has given me a whole new appreciation for players who play champs like Kalista, Galio, Azir, etc. that are almost unplayable outside of the LCS but Riot doesn't want to tweak them to make them better in solo queue but worse in pro play. Yes, statistically Sejuani is the worst jungler in the game below Diamond Elo, but there are other champs out there too that need attention as well. {{champion:268}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:76}}
: Patch 8.12 notes
Why do Twisted Treeline and ARAM feel more balanced than Summoner’s Rift right now?
: Patch 8.12 notes
Hey Riot can you literally just undo every single change you made since 8.9? The game is quite obviously screwed up and I think 95% of the players would like the changes undone and have the old game back. I don’t care if we lose the new Scuttle Crab and the new ADC items and all of your “hard work” over the last 2 months is undone. Those changes were shit anyway and the current state of the game proves that. I just want to play League of Legends again.
