: Which rune do you think is too strong?
I think conqueror is actually trash if you look at the numbers. The last game I used it was on Tryndamere and only because I didn't have time to fix the page. I dealt about 250 damage that would have been mitigated in 20 minutes. Fleet footwork would have healed for 2-3k by then and press the attack would have dealt about 1k by then. The only time conqueror is good is when you make it to 30+ minutes and are against tanks.
: Dude I can't give a perspective but all I know is that if I'm playing Talon and the enemy laner (no matter how squishy they are) can get 1-2 cloth armors and my kill pressure is reduced to 0 xd Probably just a thing for AD assassins in general, so like I said, this isn't much of a perspective as much as it is an anecdotal observation. I hope if they buff armor they don't make it too much stronger vs AD assassins.
Armor is fine. People are just morons who think they can tank 5 ad's in a 1v5 with 2 armor items. You can't and shouldn't be able to tank for more than 5 seconds with 5 people focusing you. You should be able to easily tank 2 people for 10+ seconds though if you have spent as much gold on armor as they have ad and that is only flat ad without items like black cleaver and last whisper.
: Why does everyone want everything for free?
For the same reason people complain about not making enough money while paying for a mortgage and new car. Everyone wants nice things but complain when they have to pay for them instead of just having enough to get by and having plenty of money to spare.

In most of those cases my team proceeds to wipe the enemy team in a 5-1 ace because the enemy wasted everything killing me. cooldowns? hah! what cooldowns do adcs have? lol. That just goes back to my point. There's no reason to build tanky when you die that fast imo. I'd rather just build glass cannon and do as much damage as possible instead of die in 5 seconds as a tank but abysmal damage.
The point of building tanky is to die in 5 seconds when focused by 5 people instead of dying in 1 second when focused by 1 person. Someone who is alive does infinitely more damage than someone who is dead unless they are Karthus or Sion. If you keep getting one shot by an assassin as an ADC, I guarantee the tank is doing more damage than you.

: Is NA plat better than EUNE plat?
I have yet to experience this. The worst I've seen from plat 4 to 3 is negativity when behind and this is present in all ranks. I was actually really surprised about the game linked below. Bottom lane locked in Garen without saying anything and nobody was toxic about it. I was expecting someone to dodge but no one did and then the Graves ended up ganking us pretty early and we got a lead going which we held for the rest of the game. https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/3126726351/209287161?tab=overview
: ya know this is why i go coin if i dont go a mage type support cuz i can complete the quest faster. and still get gold through out game with out having to worry about procing relic shield. plus the extra MS is nice
I used to go coin on Taric every game which does make the early game feel nicer but I feel that he is stronger late game with the extra health.

You have .96 vision score in recent support games btw. You should really follow your own advice on the control wards. I permanently have 2 control wards in my bag after I get a mana item.

So do you back every 45 seconds to restock your wards on support? https://i.imgur.com/v0rX0gn.png Vision score is 1.68 per minute if i switch to ranked only.
: so why did you get out warded ?
Because Morgana starts spellthief and finishes her quest at 8 minutes while I finish mine at 12 minutes with relic shield. Also look at their team. I put myself in danger just going to ward with their 3 long range CC abilities that can hit from fog of war unless my team comes with me. Against a team like that I mostly have to just sit in lanes and ward over walls unless I already have vision of the majority of their team which is difficult when the enemy buys 28 control wards and has 3 sweepers.

: No advice is worse ion lower ELO than "trust your teammates".
No advice is better in any elo than learn how to be carried. If you are 0/2 in top lane and your Zed in middle lane is 2/0, stop trying to fight. Just sit at 0/2 for the next 15 minutes and let your Zed carry you instead of becoming 2/7 making it that much harder to be carried.

I don't think they do. A good way to see how to improve your rating is to go into your league client stats. This gives a breakdown of all the criteria they look for as well as how you compare to other people playing the same champion at the same rank. This will give a good idea on what you need to work on.

Hydra only affects targets behind the primary. It does not affect whoever your shape shifters are actually hitting so perhaps this is why you were not seeing it.
: "Pantheon has talon level damage" is a lie. Pantheon needs changes
After playing against him 3 times in top lane, I think they need to nerf his shield to shift power elsewhere. His shield is actually overbearing in a lot of matchups and I don't think Pantheon players would be opposed to it being nerfed in favor of more damage on his Q.

Taric is actually better the lower elo you are because of his ultimate. People don't know how to deal with it in low elo. The higher you go the faster people disengage when they see it.
: We demand Star Guardian Taric
I would prefer a serious type Taric skin like warden, full metal, or traditional to bring back his old armor and shield. Half of his skins are already meme skins in pool party and armor of the fifth age.
: THIS GETS ME PERMA BANNED???!
I have to ask when you actually had time to play the game. You typed something every 18 seconds in the first game listed. Completely ignoring the constant berating of your team, typing something every 18 seconds is borderline AFK.
: make it so you can remove items you accidentally placed on a champ in tft
I made this mistake once and learned from it. I now always take a couple seconds to look at which item I grabbed. If you can't learn from your mistakes, that's on you. It isn't on Riot to make sure you don't repeat your mistakes.
: Prestige Points, Orange Essence and Blue Essence... Paying is the only way to get content anymore?
I don't understand why it is a bad thing that they charge you for cosmetic content. If you don't want to spend money then don't and just play the game that is provided to you for free. You don't get any advantages by paying money thus you don't miss out on anything. They give you tons of free stuff through the crafting system. I have a skin for every single champion I play and I only bought around 5 of those skins at full price (before crafting existed). All of the others were either completely free or on a heavy sale through the my shop feature.
: Garen's e could always crit, that's not the change.

I had this happen as well. I was queued top and mid and was playing with someone queued jungle and bottom. They were placed bottom and I was filled jungle instead of giving them their primary and filling me to bottom. I would think the system would prioritize only filling one person and attempting to give all others their primary but it seems that it doesn't.

Bottom lane Taric with a Zilean support. That is how I had 577 movement speed.
Rioter Comments
: Help. I can't help Ezreal ADC, need some pointers
Ezreal can't fight early game because he needs to build up his mana. While he spends 2k gold on mana, the opposing ADC spends 2k gold on AD. You just have to protect him and go for a 0/0/0 score in laning phase. Don't try to force plays with an Ezreal because he will either just leave you to die and rightfully so or you will bait him into the fight and you will both die. The only way Ezreal should ever get kills early game is if the enemy screws up.

Is there any good supports for stopping him from one shotting my ADC with no recourse?
I've never had a problem as Taric against him. Taric gives his ADC a large amount of armor on top of his shields, heals, and ult. His stun also outranges the stun range of Jax's counter strike making it so you can kite him back while counter strike is active. Even if he chooses to jump in with his Q you will just stun each other.
: Can Armor actually mean something again?
One of my recent games I had 550 armor. I mitigated 130k damage and took 25k physical damage. I think it worked as intended.
: Help me pick a champion to play?
I am going to suggest my main, Taric. He is viable in all roles except ADC and can be built in 4 different ways. He can be a tank support with zeke's, locket, knight's vow; an enchanter with mikaels, ardent censer, etc.; a fighter with manamune, iceborn/triforce, and juggernaut items; and he can be built full tank. In jungle, all 4 smite items are viable. His versatility keeps him fresh by switching up his play style. I have never gotten bored playing him at almost 1 mil mastery. As for his lore and quotes, he is pretty modern after his rework. He is also not really on riot's radar with low play rate so he is not changed often.

: Tenacity item ASAP
I counter CC with {{champion:201}} {{item:3075}} dragon claw. It doesn't matter if he gets cc'd because he does 5k + damage just by standing there.
: I think a "Craft your champ" mode could be as fun as urf was
{{champion:44}} {{champion:44}} Q {{champion:111}} Q {{champion:24}} E {{champion:106}} R Late game you would have a 3 second cd naut pull and counter strike to keep people locked down as well as amost permanently have counter strike up mitigating a lot of damage and Taric's passive gives him 2.5 attack speed with just a wits end. This attack speed combined with Volibear's ult would be really strong. As a side note, this would be almost impossible to program. The only way this could happen is if they did something similar to Sylas's ult where he actually transforms into the champion whose ability he is using. This would be impossible in a lot of combinations though like in my template doing counterstrike, activating Taric's passive and Volibear's ult, and using Nautilus's Q. This would be 4 different champion's abilities active at the same time.

How is this for context. I am among my white friends and family and we are calling each other the word that shall not be mentioned.

We aren't in any way degrading or insulting anyone of a different race but I guarantee he will take offense to it.

: Mmm... That wouldn't work either, since right after the rework (7.6) was also right before the all-around tank item nerfs that hit in 7.9. So because they wanted to make absolutely certain that tanks would never be meta again, they've been doing what they can to remove defense in favor of damage. For some, like Galio, that's meant flipping their primary and secondary roles. So we can't go back to that Galio. Although the one we have, the one they wanted "back", doesn't work all that well either. Since the items his entire kit revolved around-- Athene's and Banshee's Scepter-- were changed. Which means they're forced to make him more of a glass cannon because the items that granted both MR and mage amounts of AP don't do that any more. So what can they do? I'm not sure. But a full revert wouldn't work without also reverting every change to every AP and MR item.
I would be fine with items. I would build him with {{item:3027}} or {{item:3001}} and {{item:3065}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3111}} {{item:3102}} {{item:3800}} . I actually think the new items would suit him quite well. Righteous glory would be amazing on him and I think a lot of people would use protobelt on him. There are also runes like approach velocity, revitalize, conditioning, presence of mind, ultimate hunter, hex flash, biscuits, and overheal which would all be really good on him. I think the things most old Galio players want reverted are his W and R. I liked his old Q and E better but would at least play him again on a regular basis if they would revert his W and R.

: What is the most boring champ to play?
The most boring to me is Blitzcrank when behind because you can't do anything. If you try to pull someone when your team is behind you will just give them a free engage. This means you have to just sit back and do nothing until you can find an enemy in a situation where you have enough people to shut them down.
Durzaka (NA)
: Wouldnt this still let him slow his primary target, which lets him continue to land Qs on them, so while it would be a nerf, it wouldnt stop him from using it.
It would slow his target only as long as they remain in the circle. With a small circle they can quickly walk out of it and leave the slow. It would still provide Ezreal some safety if they get to him and then he dashes away after applying the slow at close range but he wouldn't be able to permanently apply slowing fields that have a meaningful effect with my proposed change.

: Ah, well see there's your problem right there -- you're a responsibility-dodging, team-blaming, hot-tempered, raging douche! Lucky you, buddy -- That's a super easy fix. Be less of a douche, calm your ass down, look at the way YOU'RE playing instead of trying to blame everyone else, work to improve YOURSELF -- and you should be well on your way, friend! At least my problem is that I have the mechanics of a goddamn three toed sloth and couldn't 1v1 my way out of a paper bag. Despite that, I'm generally a good person and a good team mate. The only reason I'm silver/gold and not iron/bronze is because I have pretty decent strategic sense, and I'm a hyper-safe player. If this was purely a mechanical game, I'd be in wet cardboard 7. You, on the other hand, could probably climb pretty quick if you just weren't such a jerk, and took the time to critique and correct your own play instead of worrying how badly you _think_ everyone else is fucking up. Cuz here's the thing -- nobody's ever going to live up to your ridiculous expectations. And concentrating on their mistakes -- perceived or otherwise -- is only going to make you upset and play worse. You're so concentrated on what your team is doing that you're not putting 100% into your own champion, your own actions, your own decisions. Mute everyone at the start of the game, and don't touch your keyboard unless its to actually play your champion. Don't spam pings. Don't rage at people. Don't sit there and think "OMG THIS FKN SYLAS JUST DID THIS THING I DISAGREE WITH FK HIM FKN TRASH" Just treat them like bots, bro. Treat them like bots that are gonna be unpredictable, do stupid shit, and the only way you're going to win is by carrying these kids. Because that's reality. And if you lose -- don't think to yourself "OMG FK THESE NOOB KIDS UNCARRYABLE RITO SUX FK SILVER ELO HELL" Instead, think to yourself -- "Should I really have chased that ezreal from the mid outer turret all the way back to his nexus and got killed by the laser at 7 minutes? Looking back, that seemed aggressive." "Should I really have dove into the 5v1 baron pit trying to steal baron, even though I didn't have flash or any other way out of the pit if I failed, and I'm not the jungler so I don't have smite, so I really didn't have any business even TRYING?" There's only one player in any given game you should be critiquing and analyzing -- and that's **YOU**
I'm the same. I'm currently plat 3 and my iron friend made me look silly in an Ezreal 1v1 but I destroyed him on Udyr in a 1v1 while he mains Udyr and I was first timing him.
