: nah, it's 2.2 seconds course, morg's lasts for 2.25 seconds, so...
Probably why I never noticed the CD xD
: i heard about that, personally i don't like it (i've been rocking the wraith icon for too long to drop it now, ignore current urf icon).
Well, I mean there are other rewards (currently can't remember them). And other people do like the idea, I'd love a Rengar icon.
Reikken (NA)
: but... no one has a 1 sec CD snare...
On URF? Pretty sure Morgana or Lux do.
: true i suppose, and if people wanna pay for something they can get for free i also don't see the problem. Perhaps a loading screen indicator to show (hey this guy actually plays the champ and didn't buy it).
Oh, they plan on rewarding people for Masteries. I believe they were passing around the idea of giving the player the icon of their champion to use as a summoner icon.
Rioter Comments
: I know, still he is an asshole.
The board has been getting hit hard with trolls lately. I saw like 5 people last night calling everyone (even people that if you looked had diamond rank) bronze. I guess they got tired of ruining the game for everyone, so decided to ruin the forums for everyone.
: i like the idea of rewarding for champion mastery through chromas, but they would have to be different from the ones sold to people who haven't mastered said champ (insert smite here)
Technically, not really. Since you are really just paying currently to have them sooner-than-later.
UPfreely (NA)
: @riot why don't we have in-game communities?
I could get behind a guild system. That sounds quite interesting. A guild of say 50+ people, people chosen by guild leader to moderate the guild, it would make for a rather nice environment since we'd be able to match up with guildmates rather than randoms. It would definitely decrease the amount of toxicity.
: I do know the game I just don't like having to play with trolls in ranked, It doesn't matter what rank you are. Only if you enjoy the game and play it a lot. Edit: Also Learn to type caps, its like reading something a five year old wrote, I guess that makes sense though, seeing as you are one.
Relax, mate, this guy is a troll. He is literally trying his best to get under your skin.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Well yeah there's that... but in most cases when they are for the default skin (i.e Lucian) people will already own that since it's part of the champion. When it's for something like the Dragon Fist Lee Sin they showed then they'd also have to own that skin in order to use that Chroma (so it'd be a bit more overall if they didn't already have that).
I believe I read that if you don't own the skin they just add the total to it, so theSkin+Chroma. But if they can give me an all black Ahri, or a Pink Rengar, I will be fine with spending 590RP.
: Singed costs 1350? Why did I not know that?
Not everyone knows the price of all the champions, I spend a lot of time scrolls through the champion shop. xD
Sukishoo (NA)
: Well it's a "recolor" of an existing skin, so essentially it's a "skin" just took them less time to do then the original idea.
Yeah, but you need to own the skin. That's why it is literally both. xD I didn't read too much about it, but are they offering recolors to default looks? I'd pay for that.
Albion (OCE)
: Who else loves laning against Cho'gath?
Cho'gath is easy to lane against.
Sukishoo (NA)
: This! Plus you are getting 3 skins for 590
Well, color pallets. They aren't technically skins, and Riot admitted to that as well, saying "they are a little bit of both".

eSports needs cheerleaders. Everything needs cheerleaders. If I could have a personal cheerleader to cheer me on through taking a wicked shit, I would pay them extra.

They said they were open to change it, but they were launching it as RP only to start. They said they are thinking of IP, or reward for champion mastery.

: Thank you Riot for firing the powerabusive mods.
Call me a bronzie please! I wanna be ranked! D:
: Huh, curious. Cheapest person there is Cho'Gath.
Cho'gath, Singed, and Nasus all cost the same. They must have subbed the 450 for a 1350

But there's still lag based on individual ping. Lets say me and Joe press the button within 80 ms of each other. On my screen in shows that I pressed it first because it takes 200 ms (my ping + his ping) for that information to reach him. On Joe's screen it shows that he pressed it first because it takes 200 ms (his ping + my ping) to reach him. That doesn't even account for the speed of the server itself, which may be lagging.
The server would highlight the button depending on who it read clicked it first, that way the individual's lag wouldn't matter, as it would highlight server-wise whoever it picked up first. its really not as difficult as you are making it out to be.
: the problem is that people with slow internet connections will join the lobby after someone has claimed a role and they won't see it there's also ping being a factor - if i have 100 ping and someone else has 100 ping then thats a 200 ping window that i can type something in the chatbox and it will appear on my screen before it appears on theirs. that problem wouldn't be solved by a button because there would still be a 200 ping delay.
Well, the button would probably stay highlighted for those who join, to show that someone already said they wanted it.
: Honestly these should be available for IP. Some of us on live have or nearly have all the runes/champs/runepages that can be bought with IP. The game is 5 years old,. we need a place to sink IP at this point.
They did say that they are open to changing it in the future, but are sticking to just RP upon launch "as tradition".
: Morgana is both a support and mage, so you're free to do both. Same with champions like Karma. Don't let roles restrict you to a point. Some great Sona mains can even go mid, and some Leona mains can jungle. Yeah, freezing a lane is neither pushing or letting yourself get pushed, generally just focusing on last-hitting. I just wanted to point that out in case you rely too much on waveclear with Donger and the rest rather than autoattacks. And mana management is an important skill. You'll thank yourself later when you start facing the likes of Katarina and Zed.
Morgana does feel like a viable mid laner, and I have gotten compliments when I play her (it was URF, but still). She feels natural to me, mostly because of her CC, I've always been a gamer who liked CC. Oh, I can freeze a lane pretty well with Donger. Though I usually don't need to, since Donger is great for pushing. I usually freeze it with Ahri, who I find a lot more simple to freeze with, since I can harass my target more. E them in, W them, then Q them causing them to either need to run, or pull back enough so they can't collect farm. Something I learned from what little time I do spend playing DOTA is that if you are going to auto-attack minions, you should practice getting just the last hit on them. I've found this to be rather effective.

That surprises me, as any experienced DOTA player I talk to says there is none. I have never seen anyone say "Omfg, Tidehunter bot? fucking follow the meta noob" like I would in League. I take Tidehunter any lane that happens to be open, and have never once gotten flamed for it.
: The trick to farming with AP champions, beyond just last-hitting with autos, is timing your waveclear. You'll want to auto your minions a few times before popping your spell to ensure a 100% wave, rather than popping it immediately and having a bunch of low health minions you're going to miss. Though you might already know this. Though keep in mind that you can always improve your cs'ing, even with Donger. Learn to freeze a lane if you don't already know.
Yeah, I've been trying that with Ahri, easier to do with Morgana (but idk if I should be taking her mid or supp). Ahri's waveclear (which I believe is her Q) is pretty narrow, so I've been practicing lining it up so that I get the most CS in one use so as to preserve mana. Isn't freezing a lane where neither laner can push?

: congrats i will never play urf again cuz i dont play meta champs in it i guess. i hate the meta so much. close minded people.
If you hate Meta, try DOTA. And no, this is not one of those DOTA>League replies. I personally play both, and I like them both. In DOTA, there is no Meta at all (well, except maybe the part where mid lane is usually solo, but even that is not enforced). You can pick any hero, and go any lane.

: Bots are ridiculoud
Oh, thought you meant Co-Op bots. I was about to call you nuts. Last I heard Riot was looking into it. Whether or not it is being done, only a Rioter could answer.
: Not even LCS players hit 100 at ten minutes. It CAN happen and DOES happen sometimes but that's not a good measuring stick. If you can hit 70-80 by 10 you are going to be in a good spot
With Donger, anything is possible.
: You hit 100 at ten minutes?
With Donger? I can. I won't back for my first time unless I have over 60-70 CS, and not until I am over lvl 6 (Usually near 4k gold on my first back), then I can just camp the lane and pick off kills. He's pretty simple to play. I can hit 50-60 by 10 with Ahri, but I've only done that in practice lobbies. Its easier to get CS when you don't have a teammate running into your lane, taking your CS. That, and I am having trouble understanding Ahri, but that's because I just bought her a while ago.

As much as your username implies that your cs/last hit game could be on point. It is definitely no where near good by any means. At least, there is not enough evidence for it. Heimerdinger is probably the easiest champion to last hit creeps for newbies because your turrets will hit all the ones you would usually miss.
"Newbies"? Are you implying I am a newbie? Because I've been playing for over a year. And I don't think that makes me "newbie", as the term implies that I am new to the game. I know what I am doing when it comes to last hitting and CS, and that is what I meant. I should have made that clearer, since I know my overall effectiveness could use a lot of work. But I am still trying out new champions to find the one I like, Donger is the easiest for me so I use him when I want to have fun. I am learning how to play Ahri, because I would like to main her.
: New free champion rotation: Lulu, Quinn, Twitch and more!
Do my eyes deceive me, or is there actually no 450IP champs for a change?
: Riot doesn't track Lifetime IP anymore?
They still track IP spent within the last 90 days so you can refund anything if you wish. That is about the extent of any IP records I can recall.
Jixx (NA)
: Can we get an easier champion select?
I heard the idea of "folders" was passed around. Meaning that kind of like how we can make custom builds, we would be able to put champions into a folder so we could just click it and find them easier. I dunno if Riot actually considered it, but I remember a Red bringing up that they would pass the idea on.
: Serious qustion, why is the logon screen so damn loud?
Well, you could just mute it, I have it muted for that reason. I only unmute it to hear it the first time.
: in urf i see people run threw the other teams base for example, riven, will run threw the other teams base and not die. i think its funny. sure its trolling but who cares, its fun to watch and to do.
Omfg, my friend did that. He went like super-silent in the skype call and flashed into their base and destroyed them. Its amazing to watch.
: I want to put this out there
I have a friend who has won over 2000 normal games, but hasn't touched ranked since season 2, and he got into an argument with a Diamond rank about Zed being viable. The Diamond kid was making it sound like Zed was the hardest champ to get kills with, and required high skill levels. Just because you are ranked, doesn't mean you know more than everyone else.

arcinex (NA)
: No. The first dead give away sign of a low elo player is their lack of CS, or rather an inability to realize the importance of last hitting minions. If anything, people will say TF is a bad champion because of Link's poor performance with him against Team Liquid.
I'm level 18, and my CS/Last hit game is on point.

According to the 100+ other forum posts (and personal experience), yes, it is spam bots. Don't accept them.

OG Mesty (NA)
: Like what skills I pick first?
OG Mesty (NA)
: I don;t know all the roles to well or what champs fit them but I have been playing with Ashe, Miss Fortune and Morgana
One tip: Turn "Auto-casting" on. It helps a ton, but if you are not comfortable using it, stick with having it off for a while. Ashe and Miss Fortune are ADC (Attack Damage Carry). Morgana is either a Mage or a Support. ADCs play bottom lane along side a support champion. Mages can play top, but are more commonly found in the mid-lane, and supports go to the bot lane with the ADCs. When you play an ADC, on of the things you should be focusing on is poking. Poking is where you harass the enemy with auto-attacks, and the occasional skill. I use to play Ashe (a lot), so I will help you with her first. Ashe is an odd ADC, as I found her best to be an AS (Attack Speed) champion. This being said, I would build her starting with: {{item:3031}} {{item:3087}}. I highly suggest using Mobafire as you are starting out, it helps you to understand what items works with who (as you get more knowledgeable on items, you'll never want to use Mobafire again though). Start with her W, this helps with her poke. Every now and then, just unleash it when you can get a clear shot of the enemy (Do not pursue further). In the mean time, farm your little heart out on the minions. CS (Creep Score) is your main source of gold, so the more minions you kill the better. Don't get greedy for kills, you dying is worse than you not getting a kill. Poke the enemy until they either act stupid, or have to recall. Don't be afraid to use your ult to pick off a kill. If you see someone with low enough health (you should probably learn how much damage her ult does), sitting under a turret, or recalling, in your lane, shoot it. Just don't rush in for kills, otherwise you will die. I have not played Miss Fortune, but all ADCs work pretty much the same in terms of poking/cs/etc. Morgana is a personal favorite of mine. I play her support and mid. If you want kills, take her mid. In the mid lane, you are most open for ganks. With Morg, you are going to want to learn to Q (snare) then W (Fermented Soil) right after, and under them. Her passive heals her when she deals spell damage, so be sure to not be afraid of using your spells. Buy {{item:3157}}, this is an amazing item to do some wicked combos with. If you shield yourself (her E), snare them, fermented soil them, and then use your ult+{{item:3157}} , you will get off some wicked damage while taking a small amount. I still don't know how to build her as Support, but I usually play Soraka or Sona support, so I know the role a bit. If you want to play support, know this: Kills are nothing to you. Your entire goal is to give your ADC kills and protect them. "Peeling" is a turn used when referring to a support forcing your enemy away from its target (so with Morg, it would be snare+fermented soil, causing them to have to retreat). Never aim to get kills as a support. If you can, and your ADC is nowhere in sight (either dead, recalled, or god knows where), for ahead and take the kill (IF YOU CAN). Otherwise, you are going for assists. Most of my support games go like: 3/10/20 (kills/deaths/assists), and this is a good thing because it means I spent most of my time helping my teammates get kills. Kills are not your goal in this game. You cannot run-and-gun, get a ton of kills, and expect to win. If you go 3/10, but won your lane (towers+cs), you are doing fine. Of course there will be some asshole raging that you suck (welcome to League), but you don't. Your goals are the most important thing in this game. Those goals are the towers. If you can get to the inhib without losing a tower, you are doing fine. I have had games where I went 20/5, and still lost the game because my other laners lost their lane. Just remember, though, do not blame your team for your mistakes. If you die, you die. I hope this helped any. :)

Its only 5 games. That is the low punishment.

: Had a fight of my life as Talon vs Donger, We had a Nunu jungler so I asked him to just come in from time to time just to eat those turrets. Focused on killing turrets and once I got a kill on him I was good. It was a satisfying win. Alot of people don't know this, but kill the fucking turrets as soon as you can. I knew I was facing him so I just rushed to the lane and started killing them as he placed them.
Donger relies on stupidity, if your opponent is either: Arrogant, newer, unfamiliar, or a flamer, you'll win as Donger.
