: I don't want to be the one to break this to you, but I think I have to be.... People have been saying 'this is the worst season ever' since League of Legends launched. Every single season has been 'the worst season ever' to a segment of people. And, no matter what Riot does, every season will be 'the worst season ever' to a segment of people. And, most likely, that segment will be extremely vocal, making it seem like everything is always getting worse. This has been a reality in EVERY ONLINE GAME EVER. Heroes of the Storm, back when anyone cared about it, had naysayers saying 'this is the worst its ever been'. Every D3 patch is 'the worst patch ever'. Every DotA 2 patch is 'the worst patch ever'. Every CoD is 'the worst CoD ever'. Every Fortnite season is 'the worst season ever'. This is just how people are online. Every WoW expansion was 'the worst WoW expansion' to some people when they were playing it - even Burning Crusade and Wrath(which are often seen as WoW's golden age nowadays), when they were fresh, had some people who hated them. Burning Crusade was extremely heavily criticized for destroying guilds, while Wrath had its critics both over 'making things too easy' and 'making things too hard'. You're never going to escape 'the worst the game has ever been' as long as you play games. Sorry.
Came here to say the same. Actually, I came to these forums for the first time in a year today to see the obligatory "New is bad" post following the announced change. Don't people see that same doom and gloom bullshit being posted every single time they change a pixel in a game.
: Friendly Reminder that Champs are STILL AFK'ing on the Board
I don't understand why this doesn't get more attention from the community or Riot. One thing I did notice though, I typically win the fights where my champions go AFK, probably because they are swarming a smaller team so much any melees can't get in but instead of having them wait in an intelligent spot for an opening they just have them freeze wherever they are.
: Let's make the term Kayle Curse a thing
I usually try to transition into nobles if I get her and never plan on going nobles from the start. Other than Leo it's super easy to get the rest of them to level 2 for a transition. Not a lot of people run any of them in late game comps that aren't noble based.
Cräfty (EUW)
: Is it just me or are Swain and Kayle the rarest of the 5 cost units?
It probably is the fact that more than one person is always going nobles so the chances that someone leveled up earlier than you and got her before they needed her are pretty high. I def agree that I see Yas more than any of them but I think that's for the same reason. I so rarely see people going Blademasters so early on you probably pass him up when you roll into him.
: TFT was more fun when it wasn't a race for the most OP teamcomp.

: There is absolutely no reason NOT to copy Dota's Autochess item system
If they implement guaranteed drops your next post will be complaining that you only ever get cloaks and vests. No matter what a huge chunk of this game is going to dictated by RNG.

Well if that's not proof the game cares more about RNG than strat I don't know what is.

You get the same gold for loss streaks too though, right?

Poe's law deals in expression of intent in a statement or question. This is just contradictory exaggeration. Seems like you just saw someone mention Poe's law somewhere and regurgitated it.

Two times I've missed my trinket ping supporting and both times my ADC fell back thinking a gank was coming -_-
: On some champs I invade to solo steal their buff and if you leash for me it can reveal which side I started on or if I took their buff. Also some champs dont gank ASAP just because you feel entitled and demand it, they benefit more from fast farming to their power spikes to carry or take objectives.

I'm not dictating the route by helping clear speed and what does jungle camp differentiation have anything to do with leashing red or blue? I understand that giving you a leash gives information to the other team but if your so concerned about that ask top or bot to stay out of vision until the lane that helped the leash is finished. It does not matter what jungler you are, clearing faster is better, there are no two ways about that.
: "I don't need a leash"
Ivern is the exception obviously, Fid and Shaco don't NEED a leash but we all benefit from them clearing faster regardless. And I know ww powerfarms to 6 either way but he will get to 6 that much quicker with a leash.
: So? Then leash him anyway. Its not like he can do anything about it.

: Mobility with marksmen helps them kite (though it's possible without it) so them getting it doesn't surprise me. Juggernauts aren't mobile. Idk where you got that idea. Skirmishers and assassins are mobile but for different reasons. Separate from divers as well. These are the different forms of mobility I've noticed. Kiting abilities: Vayne and Lucian dashes. These abilities are built for weaving around combat. Skirmishers have the same type of mobility but it's also a bit more battle oriented for them while carries are more focused on escaping and kiting. Engaging mobility: Divers like Vi or Xin. These are tools meant to force fights and are usually weak for escaping. VI's Q needs a charge up time so it's only a decent escape tool in comparison to the next form of mobility. Escape (or NOPE/JUKED) mobility: Talon's parkour and Zed's shadows. These are abilities more suited for allowing the user to get out of their situation after their task is done. Like CC however, mobility can be flexible enough to be used offensively and defensively. But their primary design is usually what helps define them into a playstyle.

A POINT EMERGES I get that "Dive fighters" need to be mobile, but do Assasins, skirmishers, some juggernauts and even some ADCs need it? Every champion they released in the past two years has a mobility gimmick with the exception of Ivern, Jhin and Illaoi. I'm tired of seeing "Highly mobile" as a defining quality why everyone fucking has mobility. Also you say dive fighter but I see an assassin in every way except for the passive.

: Season 7 and Lee can still flash during kick but I can't
I've been playing this game for a long time and I'm not very good but every 6 months I see a frontpage thread about Lee that always turns into people complaining about the ratio on his ult. They never change it. Riot loves his goddamn kit, it's fun to watch a good Lee.
: fully agreed. I was so sad playing {{champion:105}} {{champion:7}} today, two of my mains. Leblancs ult at lv11 does half the base damage of her max rank w, with a smaller ap ratio (at best - some mimics do less than others). She also cant pop back from her w as fast as before, they added a timer so you have to wait about a second now. Her r-r ult just walks up and does nothing and laughs. She no longer has passive safety net either. Like why. Fizz ult does less damage unless it's MAX range. Even then they removed the +20% damage from your other abilities to the target when it hits someone. His new w is super awkward in team fights with a cooldown so long you can only pop it once during the whole fight. This change also lowered his sustained damage so I cant clear jungle anymore with him like at all. Plus i always built revolver on him, which was nerfed meanwhile in AD land, {{item:3814}} {{item:3147}} {{item:3142}} . Not sure why they fucked ap champions and also nerfed revolver, while giving ad champions the same burst and stealth, while also giving them an **MR + AD + spell shield?????** I guess I'll play {{champion:55}} now as my mid lane ap assassin... she is fun. But come on. I'm so sad with what they did to lb and fizz. At least I dont play shaco and akali I guess

lolking has completely different stats that's weird. I'm under your elo but I don't feel hes MUCH weaker than he used to be, I still have decent success with him. Do you have a mid you prefer to him these days or are you just focusing on other positions until the meta shifts?
: Bronze is not elo hell.
I've climbed out of Bronze twice and Silver is worse for BM and trolls. The guys in Bronze don't flame that much since they don't feel like they're being held back. In silver you get one asshole every game who thinks hes miles ahead of everyone despite having garbage farm and chasing every single kill.

If you have unsteady hands lift the model up and hold it in one hand while the other hand paints but make sure your hands are touching, this will give you some extra stability. Remember, if you mess up you can always paint over it so experiment.
: Katarina and Fiora are not warriors. Ignoring those and the yordle. Irelia and Riven are fairly thin. Leona is in full plate, her musculature is unknown. Shyvana I wouldn't call skinny, try googling skinny. Also big women being the exception depends on how you define that(ignoring Rek'Sai) Leona is among the tallest and largest humans in the game, and most of us assume quite muscular. Kayle also appears to be pretty large. They just are not bulky, there is a difference. I personally dislike bulky, in men as well. I would never enjoy physical intimacy with Olaf or Garen. On the other hand Lucian and Ez look nice in my eyes. both of them are muscular by the way, they just are not absurdly huge meat loafs. That aside I am not talking about Riot's designs. I am talking about people(fans) who act as if Illoai is some sort of ideal all female warrior characters should be.

Carrying yourself up a mountain and fighting dragons, demons and actual walking mountains are not even in the same ball park. I understand you look up to your role model but this is a fantasy game, she would get fucking decimated before the first wave cleared and most of it would have to do with her lack of A) bulky ass armor and B) powers. This is a game where people hit you with everything from swords to super mega death rockets, if you don't have some kind of power you damn will better have armor some goddamn muscle tone.

Support is a selfless roll and most of us are fine with that, if you want recognition play a different roll. This sounds like it's more about how much YOU hate supporting and not the community in general.

Riot will not be solvent in about two years, apply at Blizzard. You don't want to be in the middle of paying off your student loans and suddenly walk up to an abandoned building one morning. Trust me, do not hitch your wagon do a legless horse. Even if they make it another full three years, that's probably not long enough for you to build up enough relationships to guarantee you get hired on a former bosses recommendation when they all start getting grabbed up by other companies. As an analyst you can work literally anywhere, I'd understand if you where applying for a creative position because it would give you experience you can use elsewhere when they go under but your not, you're an analyst. Use your analytical brain and read up on what I'm talking about, you'll be the first wave of layoffs.
