: Playing ADC vs Akali is a pain
Sooo....She did what assassins do?
: ***
They won't. See TT and Dominion. Arguably ARAM, though at least that has gotten some attention. They'll barf this out, and any lingering issues will most likely be ignored in favor of "muh sr". Hopefully not, but historically that is the case.
: The sole reason why I haven't played PvP once this year is because I haven't got the time for long games, a dedicated arcade-esque mode could really solve that issue. Then they could make SR matches as long as the people who complain about short games want and make Nexus Blitz be for "casualz"

This probably would be the best season yet if you don't want long games.
: What happened to League after season 5
One thing. E-Sports. As far as I can tell, e-sports are the basis for which current league was designed. Flashy, bullshit insta-burst with fast games so viewers don't get bored. All shitty changes have been a direct result of the pro scene. From bot tower first blood all the way to the scuttler changes.
: A Rioter finally aknowledged that damage creep "Might" exist! (on reddit OFC).
Lol. Proof in my eyes Riot does not play their own game. Though, the last couple of years have kinda shown that anyways. I used to have hope Riot would right their ship. Maybe they still can. I doubt it at this point.
: 230 FREE AD 30% FREE ARMOR PEN GUESS WHO IT IS?
Jesus. Is it really rocket science to kite him out?

Let's be real. This is EXACTLY what riot was gunning for, between the direct and indirect buffs they got. They are hellbent on flashy shit mattering most.

Absolutely broken matchmaking with no statistics shown to explain why the fuck there's a high-MMR in my low/medium-MMR game. Ridiculous champion/item/summoner balance. > > Every game I play where it isn't an even match, I'm just sitting back saying "Very funny, Riot. Why the fuck am I still playing this pile of burning garbage? Oh, right, friends drag me back. What a waste of my fucking time." Rarely, if ever have I felt like I'm fighting someone whose testing my skills, and yet for some reason I have an odd fascination with fighting people equal to me: it's so fun, it's so ferocious, enjoyable. Every match, this season, feels like it's not my *personal skill* on the line, but my willingness to pick certain champions or play-styles (hi, 2v3 Bot!) I may not enjoy. > > Your game was popular in the first place was because it's *competitive* and a place to show off *your own personal aptitude* for a game you like/love. Balancing around the LCS (...when the LCS exists because of us players loving your game enough to climb to the top and **compete** with each-other in our own unique way (compare Dopa to Faker for reference)) will not work if no-one enjoys the game **itself**. > > All of us want an honorable, enjoyable, possibly-bloody fight - an actual fight with any number of other people or bots, and not a meta-fest. There's no fun in prey that can't fight back, right? That's part of why this season is so frustratingly-stupid. > > ...well, rant over. Completely agree here, minus the friends dragging me back part. They mostly quit a season or more ago, lol. I myself finally had enough a couple of days ago, and uninstalled. As someone that's played since Nocturne was released and seen a ton of dumb shit in this game, this season has been the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Shit, even WINNING is miserable now. The whole LC$ first, fuck everyone else mindset is really frustrating and sad to see. I hope Riot rights the ship, because I would like to enjoy playing a game that I used to spend hours on with friends just trying fun comps and actually having a legit chance to win.
: ryze changes that Riot didnt want you to see
So.....Can we rename Q to "Overloaded" instead now?
: Instructions to having fun while in a losing game: 1) Mute the trolls 2) Don't care about winning You now have all the capability to have fun in a game. Joke with the opponents, joke with teammates, go AP Lucian, don't give a fuck. I've had plenty of games when I've had to deal with overly ahead opponents, with assholes teammates. The only thing stopping you from having fun is your own attitude.

: Lunar revel 2018 missions (Bug apparently)
Try logging out and back in maybe? I haven't had any problems so far. Minus them TRYING TO MAKE ME PLAY ON RIFT. Can't make me, Rito.
: So I just left a game at 6 minutes for the first time in ages
Lol, typical. This is what's wrong with our fucking society. Dumb cucks can troll and flame, and as soon as you do anything to defend yourself, YOU get punished. Same reason bullying is such a problem in schools. What a fucking joke.
: Ez breaking something again, what's new?
It's an annual tradition at this point.
: can this klepto ezreal crap be nerfed already?
There's a lot of broken shit I'm sick of already. Klepto Ez is just one of many.
: Riot somehow managed to make the game MORE snowbally
Hm. Thought it was just me. Good to know others feel likewise.
: How do you counter Tryndamere in blind pick?
Against Tryn? Force objectives when he tries to push. Tryn is useless beyond tower pushing now a days. The enemy team has 1 man down essentially, so it gives you the advantage in that department.
CatSith (NA)
: Why was the Evelyn R (ult) changes on PBE reverted?
Probably because they don't want to buff her before new runes are out. They'll have a better baseline for her and everyone else a few weeks after then new system is out, and can go from there.
: why do these so called "hypercarries" have good to amazing early games?
The only real "hyper carries" you mentioned on there are Kog and Twitch.
Zerenza (NA)
: Just noticed the Eve changes on the PBE! (I like them)
We all know what's going to happen. Riot will overbuff, then she'll get dumpstered.
: An assassin's job isn't to engage but to pick people off and flank. Which are some of Eve's strengths.
When an assassin goes to pick off a target they do what? Engage that specific target. Which is how I was using that.
: Maybe, just maybe, those are her intended weaknesses.
To be the only assassin in the game that struggles to engage and stick to her target without blowing her ult and protobelt? Sure. I get that they didn't want to overdo it with her release. But I still feel she has to jump through way too many hoops to do her job, unlike other assassins.
: Well, those Evelynn buffs look interesting (You guys got AD Eve back too, kinda)
Buffs are good and all. But they're targeting the wrong stuff. Le sigh.
xGunna1 (EUW)
: yasuo and zed were for months permabanned and no nerfs yet but squishy ap galio permabanned one day
Lol, Zed hasn't been perma ban in years. And Yas? I haven't seen may Yas bans since the Warlord fiasco.
: I'm so tired of watching kog/trist/twitch right click and kill everyone...
The entire class/items need to be tweaked. If they nerf Trist and Kog (which, I'm willing to bet will happen soon), the next 2-3 ADC's will step up and continue where they left off.
: What do people max first on Evelynn
: "Gender Roles"
I usually get filled into ADC, Support or Jungle. My most played are Jhin, MF, Sona, Lux, Zyra, Eve(Not anymore) and The Wick.
: Any tips on new Evelynn?
My best advice? Pick someone else.
: She's still the Udyr of Assassins.
: Question for sona players
I play her quite a bit. Never bought Tear, but I feel like it's pointless with the how fast games go these days.
: She doesn't even use auras. Sona hasn't had auras since patch 4.13, when they were replaced by lingering actives. I don't understand why players keep crying about something that literally isn't even part of her kit anymore.
> [{quoted}](name=Yuzuki Yukarin,realm=OCE,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=ZyiMaLfZ,comment-id=00040000,timestamp=2017-03-30T10:46:00.360+0000) > > She doesn't even use auras. Sona hasn't had auras since patch 4.13, when they were replaced by lingering actives. I don't understand why players keep crying about something that literally isn't even part of her kit anymore. Lingering actives, in an area around her. That effect allies in range of said "lingering actives". Sounds kind of like those auras she used to make use of. Oh wait. You can call a cow a horse. Doesn't make it a fucking horse, lol.
: Sona: How would you improve her?
To be honest? Scrap the aura gimmick. It adds invisible power that your team seldom notices and makes her a nightmare to balance. I love Sona to death, but ffs, she's a musician. Make her kit based more on that. That would make me happy.
: Unpopular opinion: Lucian probably needs a rework
The problem is, he's a generalist adc. When he's strong, he shits on most other picks due to the nature of his kit.
: UPVOTE IF YOU HATE LOW ELO SHITTY JUNGLERS
Low elo shitty jungler here. I hate you too.
: What's the point of playing a game where it's autofill vs. main ?
: Make Q only give movespeed if she hits a champ with it.
> [{quoted}](name=SpecterVonBaren,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=dopFREvk,comment-id=000100020002,timestamp=2017-03-29T00:08:22.353+0000) > > Make Q only give movespeed if she hits a champ with it. Been saying this for a while myself. It was a weird buff that she never really needed in the first place, other than to cement her as a "kite mage"
: it just bothers me that Katarina stole talon niche as AoE assassin AND akalis role as the sticky assassin/carry and then goes on to do both of them far better
Kat was always the AoE reset assassin before Talon was ever in league. She didn't steal it from him, lol. I can agree with Akali though.

: Why is Dreadnova Darius Hextech exclusive?
: Their playerbase is rather similar too... They pretend to be "AP carries", have the most inflated egos, and treat their ADCs like trash. And then rub off their egos on how "hipster" they are. Buffing Q was a mistake, and so is overbuffing the living shit out of Ardent Censer because it is "trash" and "no one builds it".

Or, you know, Sona's ratios are so fucking bad that she NEEDS to build ap to be relevant at all. I play a lot of Sona, and don't treat my adc like trash. Just saying.
: 1) When my jungler is forcing me to dodge by inting from champ select, I'm not carrying that. 2) Even if I do well, I'm still told that my champ is bad or I'm bad. Doesn't matter what I do, community perception when you're not low elo is that Sona is shit, and that effects how my team plays around me on a meta level that I don't appreciate.

Fuck the haters. Sona 4 lyfe. On a serious note, play what you enjoy. Screw their opinion. Just mute them and play to the best of your ability.
: When are you going to nerf Brand/Lux?
Lux and massively low cds? Sure, at max rank with 40-45% cdr. Love the exaggerations.
Lapis (OCE)
: What are some champs that don't require godlike reflexes?
Might I recommend Sona? She's not too mechanically demanding. The only thing for you to learn would likely just be space and zoning as well as the occasional flash ult or item active.
: no, his abilities shove the wave too hard, it will be impossible for him to taunt anything without flash because his W + E cant be used together, they both have windups and long cast animations. and for all the same reasons as old galio and why you dont want him mid, still apply to new galio (poor mana control) they destroyed his wave management. he can shove/push only.
