Everyone will buy the fan favorites so releasing those as soon as possible is probably the best move to make for racking in the money. After Smash comes out they'll probably start on some new games.

: Today's project: replace 2 large panes of glass in my parents window. Simple 45 minute job if you include picking up the materials from the store. How it actually went - * Remove broken glass, measure window frame. Ants everywhere, mosquitoes ignoring all repellent, 85% humidity/ ~90 degrees. * Drive down the street to the hardware store and have them cut the glass * Get to the house and find out they cut the glass poorly (lopsided and too large) * Drive back to hardware store, have them replace the glass with properly cut sheets * Get glass #1 into window pane, realize I have to drive back to the hardware store because the old glazing is FUBAR and has to be replaced to hold the windows in place * Get back to the house from hardware store (pwn'd count #3), guy at register looked at me funny. Get first window back in place, struggle to get the last segment of glazing in place without breaking the window, all good. * Move on to window #2, only to notice the glass is a fraction of an inch (1/16th on all sides, or 1/8 on two) too large for the glazing to snap into place. FML, kill me now. * Hardware store trip (pwn'd #4), purchased hand tool for cutting glass. Now all 3 workers are looking at me funny. * Get back to the house, draw out the line to trim on the glass. Cut one side, all good. Cut other side 99% of the way, all good. Last 1%? Glass breaks in half. * "Annnnd I'm done with this shit for today."

The top 3 pickrates for bot lane are ADCs as well. If ADCs were actually bad then their pickrates would've dropped immensely as well as their winrates, but that isn't the case. Three ADCs out of a roster of 20 doing well is pretty shitty odds and even if the top three pick rates for bot lane are ADCs, they aren't crit ADCs and two of them have a sub 50% winrate. You were to actually look at winrates for bot, you'd see that the only ADC's that are keeping up with the ridiculous winrates of everything else are MF(who builds Armor Pen) and Quinn(who isn't considered an ADC and was reworked for a solo lane). And it still doesn't excuse the terrible balance decision to open "diversity" to only the other champs on the map and to not give ADC's the same freedom. Nor to push back the power spikes of ADCs based solely on the idea that they are late game carries when they have made no moves to do so to other "late game" carries. Vlad, Irelia, Jax, Veigar, Cassiopeia, just to name a few. :/
ADCs have been going to other lanes for ages. It's crazy that the patch that was supposed to make ADCs weaker actually made them weaker. They have only been mandatory and ridiculously strong for over 5 seasons. Them being weak for 2 whole patches is extremely unhealthy for the game as we have seen so far. Vlad and Irelia already have nerfs coming and Jax's stats aren't really that great especially after the nerf to Sterak's. Veigar has an awful early game. Cass is doing pretty well right now, but she isn't op yet. Wouldn't be surprised if she eventually got nerfs.

Rioter Comments
: Anklespanking explained all of reworked Aatrox's pproblems
Riot's goal with reworks is to keep big elements of a champion's thematic and gameplay in tact when they make changes to everything. They kinda broke their rule with Aatrox with the rework. They posted on the Aatrox subreddit and explained that essentially Aatrox's current kit is extremely binary and impossible to balance and there was no way to make a kit with similar gameplay that could be healthy. So they essentially had to change his whole gameplay pattern and move him away from an auto attack based drain tank. His overall thematic stayed pretty similar, but it's not that great imo. Definitely one of the worse reworks they have done imo. I'm not an Aatrox main though so my opinion probably isn't as meaningful as their opinions.

You still see ADCs being played bot most of the time anyway. Yes, they are played bot by people who main them because that's what they enjoy playing. Not because they are good. Why is it that other people who don't play botlane get to decide what's meta botlane?
MF, Draven, and Lucian are all doing very well atm and other ADCs like Jinx, Ashe, and even Kalista are doing perfectly fine. The top 3 pickrates for bot lane are ADCs as well. If ADCs were actually bad then their pickrates would've dropped immensely as well as their winrates, but that isn't the case.

: What programming language is LOL written in?
we use at least the following languages here C++ (the core game is written in this) Lua (core game) C# (game tools) ActionScript (game hud and pvp.net) Java (platform servers) Erlang (platform servers) Php/sql (web team / platform) http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=16318 The big update to the client might have changed the languages around a bit, but I wouldn't doubt that everything ended up staying the same in terms of programming languages. If you are more interested in things like UI design and web applications, then Python (Django especially), JavaScript, and HTML are good things to get into, but if you are more interested in things like video games and software, then Java and C++ are definitely the way to go.
: Avoid Java Script like the devil if you can. Java is a pain in the neck to deal with the higher up you go. I'd start working in C+ or C++ so you can modify the Unity gaming engine! They'll get you through website design and etc. as well.
JavaScript and Java are not the same

: @Gamer Girls: I Know We're Not Allowed to Discuss Politics on GD, But Gamer Guys Must Know
If you have a nice butt and you wanna show it off, then yoga pants are the ultimate means by which to do that. Yoga pants definitely don't work for everyone (if you are trying to show off your butt), but when they do work it is a 10/10. Even if you aren't trying to show it off they are still comfortable af to wear. I'm not a gilr so I usually just walk around my dorm shirtless with a blanket and sweatpants on which is super comfy. Or maybe I'm not understanding the thread at all and I'm just posting something that doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Rioter Comments
: Can Ignite be Nerfed Already
Rarely anyone took ignite over exhaust bot lane before the buffs. Now it's worth taking it over exhaust much more often. The only other champs who took ignite were Assassins while the rest always took defensive summoners. You saw maybe 2 or 3 people with ignite MAX.

Ourada (NA)
: Viktor vs Akali
Try not to use your Q for farming unless you are under your turret. You wanna harass her as much as you can with Q + auto. An early sheen can be a nightmare to deal with against any champion that can effectively spam sheen procs on you (GP and Viktor being good examples). Never use W offensively after level 6. Always wait for her to initiate to use W. It is on a lower cooldown than shroud so if you use it when she uses shroud, then it should always be up when her shroud is up. Get used to where she goes when she uses shroud. If she retreats immediately towards her turret, then you can place W a little further back to force her to either get stunned or move to a less favorable position in her shroud. If she advances and wants to go for another dash, then place it towards the front of her shroud so she can't keep moving forward.

If everything invalidated melees, then every melee champ would be low tier and would never see play over ranged champs. So the first thing you said is 100% false. There are some champions in this game that have kits that can completely shut down melee champs and make their kit useless. Lulu is easily one of the worst offenders. If you have been around this game for more than a few seasons you should know this.

: When {{champion:157}} is weak: Gets hotfixed immediately. When {{champion:43}} is weak: Gets nerfed even more. I hate Riot's favoritism. {{sticker:sg-shisa}}
I don't understand how people can keep making this comparison between the Yasuo hotfix and the state of other champions. When they made the changes to crit they HEAVILY hurt Yasuo and completely tanked his winrate. They gave him a hotfix because he was significantly weaker due to other changes when he was in a good spot before the changes. The changes they made were +3 base AD and a small buff to his Q. That's it. Nothing else. I guarantee you that if Riot gave Karma a hotfix/buffs on the scope of Yasuo's you guys would lose your shit over how pointless and bad the buffs would be. The balance team probably spent 15 minutes tops figuring out a good hotfix for Yasuo. I'm sure they should probably spend more than 15 minutes trying to figure out changes for Karma.
