: Why downvotes?
A - Vayne's passive is fine. While yes I do get where you are coming from when you say that you don't want a ADC to charge head first into a battle , it is a powerful passive , especially on Vayne because ... B - Vayne is a late game team fight monster and janitor , if played correctly. Everyone has had a game that they crushed the enemy vayne to a pulp , but she still ends the game with a good KDA and winning the late game team fight. Small reminder to help you see why , her passive is tripled when she ultis. Meaning that she can ulti and use Q to go into stealth and get away from a situation , kiting back essentially speaking . Then when she feels like she can do her job , she will head into the heat of battle with her bonus 90 movespeed , kiting and smashing your head. Everyone has seen montages of Vaynes doing crazy stupidly awesome shit , and a lot of that is possible by the kite and chase potential provided by her passive

: It's unknown. Riot hasn't announced any specifics with regards to ranked rewards, not even for SR. With that said, ranked TT has always awarded the same stuff as SR in the past, so it'd be a bit strange to change that. Also, Champ Mastery tokens are only available from classic SR. It seems absolutely absurd to offer them in normal SR, but not ranked TT, but that's a separate discussion.
First off , thank you for answering , and its good to know that in previous years the rewards where the same. That being said , from your Icon , I can tell that you also appreciate the other modes that league offers. Thats groovy
: Fix Pulsefire Ezeal
Or Riot could spend time doing other things that are more important at the moment , and update the skin the day Ezreal gets a update , whenever that day may be

: Mmmm....... Until I actually *find* boundry, I can't really say for certain that I do or don't. ;p
You seem like the type of person that says that they will give all the kills to your adc , and then proceed to accidentally Annie ulti on the 10 health enemy that had the Cait ulti on them

: Which team do you think Jhin would cheer for?
No he wouldn't , it has 3 Letters . ENVY would be more like it
: I think that irelia is further down the list because she's on the list of champs that have a lot of potential and less gameplay problems. They'll want to focus on very toxic champs like pantheon first.
Riot said that if they come up with a coold kit for a champion with a cool theme , they would rework them , despite there being worse offenders. And EVERY time they talk about future VGU's they always bring up Irelia. And she does have a lot of gameplay problems

> > renek only gets stronger and his teamfight is still super strong. Are you ok there buddy ? Everything Okey dokey ?
: please take changes to Lulu into consideration.
Wow , Lulu is strong in a meta where everyone has a shit load of burst . Never thought that could happen /s
: Top is not in a good spot
I couldn't disagree more. Top is fine the way it is , with a plethora of champions being at least good picks. Top laners can also snowball more then any 1v1 (Except tank vs tank). And the thing is , since top takes teleport , if they become more important then they are , they will take over the entire map and everyone will complain.
: When Maokai uses his W on you, Poppy uses her E , Sion ultis , Gragas uses E or Pantheon his W and so on. You noticed how most champions have a mobility spell and a cc one (Sometimes the spell has both) ? Most cases , when the champion used these spells , the have no more mobility other then Flash (Unless its a Riven , but we don't really talk about her). Stay safe and NEVER let them use their CC with out burning their mobility spell , W their CC and they will have no more escape or CC (Unless you are facing a Riven , again , not the main point) , leaving it easy and safe to all in them. Use your ulti and Q across them (Hitting the back vital first) , getting the lower cooldown on your Q , enabling you to hit the again and again , either procing all vitals , getting a kill or blowing their flash.
Fiora is a champion that is all about patience. You have zero obligation to all in your opponent. For all you care , you could shove the wave with your Hydra , poke them , take their turret , split push and outscale. Fiora preys on none aggressive players , because if you don't over commit and try to kill her , she will out scale you. The good Fiora's will know when the all ins are coming , and will react accordingly

: Then you don't all in. Chances are , you will outscale your opponent anyway, so at some point , they probably will need to all in you. That means that they are going to be the ones to over commit. You just need to hang tight and wait for that moment. Once they all in you , use your W and they probably will have no CC left and chances are , no escape. Here is when you turn on your ulti and start smacking away at them. The key is to have patience as Fiora , poking with her Q when the vitals show up in front (Oh yeah , a neat trick is to E before you Q , procing the slow and then getting the critical strike ) and just waiting for them to all in you. And here is the kicker , if they don't all in you , no problem , just keep on poking the way I said , and you will either always have the pressure , or force them to over commit , enabling your ulti to be used to it's best effect.

Hitting the vitals is a must to survive the early game , not because of the damage, but the sustain that it provides. That said , do not over extend to hit the vitals , just wait for it to be it the front of the champion , then Q forward , hitting the vital and getting the reduced cooldown. Then , just return to farming and rinse and repeat. Save your W for the hard CC that pretty much every top laner has. This has to do more with prediction and timing then anything else , but it is what allows Fiora to win trades , since the opponent went in counting on you getting stunned or rooted. In most cases , I let my opponent push in , since Fiora can farm under tower with her Q (It looks for low health targets , so keep that in mind) . As far as her ulti goes , no beating around the bush is necessary. Save it for a all in duel , where you know that the opponent will over extend to trade with you , making it easier to proc. To start out , I suggest that you play Fiora as a counter pick into tanks , that are significantly easier to deal with and that Fiora naturally counters. After , when you feel more at home with her , try using her into more complicated match ups Its really hard to hit the vitals on the ult and when i all in with ult, i just die before i even have a chance to hit all boxes. R then Q , E , auto auto, Q, E right? Its really hard to move around your opponent to hit all boxes on ult.

: Anivia, OP?
> And yet, whenever I see her in a match its like 90% for sure shes going to wreck house. Not a lot of people play her , 4 to be exact. So basically , every time that you face a Anivia , there's a 25% chance that you are up against Froggen
: Fiora very hard
Fiora is not really the best early game champion , but she has the tools to survive it. Hitting the vitals is a must to survive the early game , not because of the damage, but the sustain that it provides.

: Who do you feel like are easy and hard champions?
For me , most champions are not that hard to learn. I think that the hardest champions to learn , are the true control mages ({{champion:34}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:69}} are some classic examples that pop into my mind. ). While they may not have overy complicated mechanics (Cassie's for instance , is really quite simple , not really rocket science) , they have the bonus factor of for you to have full mastery of the champion , you have to know how to be a control mage , how to zone without being zoned or putting yourself in a bad spot. These champions you can always tell if the person knows how to play the champion with excellence , or if their lane opponent was just badshit retarded and fed the hell out of them. {{champion:429}} is another that I consider to be more difficult to master
: Stop obsessing about the Evelynn rework, you thirsty kids...
How did you know that I have been playing league for years and that Eve is one of my favorite champions , so I would love to see her update, especially since all riots reworks have made the champions so badass ?

: Flyquest, please don't put Balls on Camille again
Lemme rephrase that : Don't put balls on a carry. Not being shady , but Balls on a carry champion just is not up to par with Balls on a tank
: She had a rework before that too, in season 4, which probably kept her from getting skins back then too. This was her 2nd rework. There are quite a few champs in the same line as her{{champion:69}}, {{champion:112}} ,{{champion:420}}, {{champion:68}}, {{champion:98}}, {{champion:74}}... the list goes on. Ofc. that's not including champs like {{champion:83}} who just got reworked or {{champion:50}} who is waiting for a rework but also really needs a skin.
> She had a rework before that too, in season 4, which probably kept her from getting skins back then too. This was her 2nd rework. As I said , October 2014
: Good Jab^ can tell that one was worked on. /s There are over 100 champs, and Cass and Zyra were both part of the MYMU last year which made them inneligeable for the 6 months before the update, and after the update it takes 6+ months to make a skin. Add to that Cass not having a decent particle skin and it increases the time again. They also wouldn't release a Cass and Zyra skin super close in timing to one another because they deserve their own center spotlights.
That would be nice and all , except for the fact that Cassie spent from October 2014 until the MYMU last year with 0 reworks or anything of the sort and they could have worked on skins/concepts for her during that time. Zyra same thing , her rework was last year , giving them ample time to work on concepts , at least .
: Can Vlad get a bigger change now that he's gettin banned again ?
I think another massive issue is that the champions that punish Vlad are not popular champions. The three best champions to pick against him are Cassie , Swain and Brand (I would say four , but Rip mid Malz). These champions could deal with the bullshit that it is to lane against a Vlad, but none of them are particularly popular champions , so it just makes it hell when he is meta
: You do realize that in the past when champs have received new animation tech a skin has followed shortly after right? In addition, Zyra finally got her skin now, so they're clearly working their way through their list of champs that desperately need new skins.
If they organized their time properly , there would be no champs that desperately would need skins

: "NEW REWORK BITCHESSSSSSSSS" Spot on bro, I feel the same way. People love to shit on Riot employees but they put out some really incredible stuff. I might be one of the few but I think Galio's rework is fantastic. Ya old Galio had his charms and I think most attachment to him from people is due to nostalgia. This new Galio screams protector to me. He looks like a hero and fits in Demacia so well. And then his new lore is really touching, he's sentient and existential. When he realizes humans are mortal and his friends are actually dying I couldn't help but go "Aww" out loud. I actually played the new Sion for the first time the other week in aram and I thought he was awesome! He FEELS SO BIG. His attacks feel big, his model is big, his voice over is big.
Totally agree with you , and I love the new Galio 2 Ps : It's sis {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: NV has decent engages and the inhib fight I thought NV was going to win because of the Lira/Seraph engages with GA but the wins just aren't happening. 1. Ninja needs to learn how to sustain or get some jungle pressure something. 2. Seraph needs to keep this Seraph up and not the one that just dies in lane similar to the 2016 Summer Seraph. 3. Apollo needs to learn to carry barely scratching the 3.0 kills per game whenever hes been in like 57 40+ min games in his career, with multiple teams and has been in the League for 4 or so years and it's the same ol' Apollo. 4. Hakuho needs to ward he's dead last when it comes to warding( Solo Q players eat your heart out) 5. Early game ok but late game need to fix that mid/late game to face the mid/late game kings ( TSM-C9-CLG)
It's always the same thing with Apollo. He is great at farming , and is one of the best at CS per min. So they give him late game adcs and hope that he carries. But he gets caught out , and all the gold the team gave him , was wasted
: Stixxay I have Stixxay because of how much he has grown, he could have just fallen off the face of the earth after honestly one hell of a rookie split, MSI 2nd place, up 20 kills over the next leader at MSI, won a NA Championship(split) and also had an incredible Worlds to boot. This year yeah he has fallen just a bit but he's more worth than Sneaky in my opinion. Sneaky could go 0-10 and C9 would still be in games maybe not win them all but he's not as needed as Stixxay is for CLG they try to get Darshan ahead early so he can peel for Stixxay because around 15-40 mins it's nothing but Stixxay either he carries hard or CLG just loses. At the start of the split weeks 1-5/6 CLG had around 18-19 deaths per game #1 in the League and still are # 1 in deaths I believe. Everyone on CLG were dying like 4 times a game with Stixxay being around 2.3 and they were still around in the standings mainly because Stixxay under pressure performs best. Lira Yeah, what a heart breaker for NV against C9 44 min average game time against C9 and Lira had great engages but his team always seems to have garbage positioning; Apollo dies first like always, followed up by Ninja if he's not dead already getting destroyed in mid lane and Seraph is Seraph with Hakuho putting 0 wards out it seems. However, if NV stays together for the Summer Split they could be a dangerous team. Jesnen I have Jensen at #1 mid mainly because of what he did at the start of the split but has fallen so I can see Bjergsen taking it honestly. I can't deny getting around 400 cs per game is amazing tho but when you're on a stacked team as well as around 13 or so 40+ min games with the longest average game time I can see how he can get that 400 cs a game so yeah Bjergsen 1st makes sense. Ryu over Hai Yeah, again most likely I had Ryu at #3 but right now I have Hai mainly because brutally honest his teammates sucks and it's been 1v9 the whole split but Ryu taking #3 will be my vote as well at the end of the split. Overall I agree mostly on your list and thank you for commenting!

I feel so bad for NV. Lira is trying super hard , and Seraph is doing his job. But Ninja is solo killed at least once during each laning fase and Apollo is always out of position (And I have noticed that he dies with flash up a lot , like a lotty lot )
: Gosh I really do miss AP Yi. Those were good times. Although I miss it more for dfg and old old Leblanc.
: Don't forget about the Sated Devourer full tank Yi that melted tanks 2 seconds with 90% true damage.
Yeah , and this even the newer kids should know. It wasn't so long ago
: you dont know what a broken yi is if you think yi is currently broken
The famous AP Yi , the one that if you did not get 2 pentas per game, it was almost report worthy. Can't say I miss it
: that's not even all that's going on they are also going back through previous champion VGUs/VUs and updating their SKIN SPLASHES, Karma is being worked on as we speak and will be coming soon™ after that, Maokai and Sejuani are on the line for new skin splash artwork to go with the mid-season tank update. oooohhh no, this project is NOT OVER because after these three, there are 13 champions that are waiting on a fresh new set of splashes: {{champion:1}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:37}} going back to {{champion:14}}, he recently received a new set of skin splashes alongside {{champion:29}} {{champion:48}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:76}}
It's true , I totally forgot about the updates to the Splash arts . That is another area that Riot has improved SOOO much in. The splash arts are so badass now
: it's too bad that the rework kits are garbage, does the good art a disservice
: Who do you think deserves the ALL 1st - 2nd - 3rd winners ?
1ST Team Top : Impact/C9 Jng : Contractz/C9 Mid : Bjergsen/TSM Adc Arrow/P1 Sup BioFrost/TSM 2ND TEAM Top : Hauntzer/TSM Jng : Lira/NV Mid : Jensen/C9 Adc : Wildturtle/TSM Sup : Smoothie/C9 3RD TEAM Top Zig/P1 Jng : Dardoch/Immortals Mid : Ryu/P1 Adc : Sneaky/C9 Sup : Stunt/P1 Bjerg X Jensen is one that can kinda go either way. My problem with Stixxay is that he kinda disappears into the crowd and is not really a stand out performer. His KDA , CS per minute and KP are not bad , but the 3 adcs I listed and Altec have better stats then him. Zig is a hidden performer , solid top laner , not really a highlight of the team , but is always there when they need him , and provides incredible map pressure. Stunt has only played a few games , but has been quite impressive and along with Meteos , has helped P1 in this surge for power of thiers. Dardoch trows the game waaaay to much to be number one. Immortals winning or not depends almost solo on him. He either snowballs them to victory , but often he trows the game being over aggressive. Contractz and Lira are better junglers , in my opinion (I feel bad for Lira , he tries so hard , but ninja gets solo killed almost every game).
