: [0.4] Boards Enhancement Kit - May 7
Test post. Don't mind me... Been gone for quite a while (7 months now?) so I'm just checking if my old FEK transfered over to BEK.
: Riven skin, expectation vs reality
Its because people have this maddening idea that angels at large can't be truly good without weakness. Everything has to have a shade of grey to make sure everything is edgy. I would even go as far as to say angels in fiction fall under at least one or more of three categories. 1.) Angels are weak compared to demons or any other force of evil and are easily slaughtered. 2.) Angels are easily corruptible and could quickly go from your greatest ally to your greatest enemy. 3.) Angels are morally bankrupt and/or unforgivingly strict, acting as a force that typically only has slightly better liking to humans than they would to demons. Dawnbringer Riven and Kayle falls under the 3rd category. Neither are weak or corruptible (as far as we know) but both are intentionally dark and edgy for the sake of making both good and evil agreeable. Granted, they are not as bad as they could be, but both would kill anything that poses a threat to the greater good." Diablo is worse for wear. The angels of Diablo fall under all three categories, in being they are easily corruptible, easily overwhelmed by the forces of hell and even voted on whenever or not to exterminate the humans, just missing extinction by 1 friggin vote, that being Tyrael's. Don't even get me started on MTG. Frankly, I'm tired of it.

Not terrible, but it will still bite chunks out of your wallet if you use it as a daily driver. The 4 wheel drive is really good for where I live though. Too much snow around here come winter.

: PSA: A Bleed is not Damage Reduction
Its also worth pointing out that the 30% damage is dealt in true damage. For ADCs, its not that big of a difference, but it is still true damage rather than damage being resisted by AD + armor/MR items.
: Teemo... counters riven right?
I struggle to lose to Teemo as Riven these days. Most of the time its more or less a free lane for me.
: What are some good recipes that use mint?
mint is good at keeping certain pests away. Can't remember which ones, but certain bugs and other critters hate it.

: why did subaru pick emilia instead of rem
I personally don't get it, even after all this time. She just about tore her heart out for him and personally got him back up onto his feet when he all but gave up. God damn brought me to tears at that. Its been fucking YEARS since a work of fiction has been able to do that.
: All Riven players know...
It depends. Early, Yasuo has the advantage levels 1 and 2. Riven actually struggles with him before level 3. During and after level 3, and after Riven rushes a ninja Tabi and has Fervor, she wins the matchup hands down. From here she MUST control the lane and never let him farm just like if he were a Nasus. If Riven plays correctly, Yasuo will never get back into the game, but if he manages to get a kill on you, you are fighting a uphill battle from there.

Just because a champion is hard does not give it a right to be broken. Her stats are below average. Anyone who does not know how to play her will get out DPS'ed easily. What you are asking for is for Riven to have to be M7 to keep up with any M5 top laner. Anything short of that and the Riven auto loses.
: Can we take the time to recognize that riven is at nearly as much of a bullshit level as fiora
Got a root? They basically pseudo silence Riven. Morg for this reason makes Riven nervous and rather hesitant. You wanted to CC Fiora? Hahahahaha Riven also gets rather reliably walled off by armor stacking. She would have to be forced to build just for you in order to kill you. You wanted to stack armor against Fiora? Hahahahaha

: This is annoying
I'm seeing a lot more toxicity toward Riven and Yasuo than that either of them have ever been. Its just sad. You almost can't blame them for being toxic anymore.

To be fair, they are making no effort to suggest those two items are not directly related with each other, unlike these two.
: We shouldn't be looking at removing all of Azir's mobility
If you remove his mobility, then be REALLY prepared to deal with a zone control mage on par with Heimerdinger but with much more damage and with more CC than he had before.
: if Riven ever got to rework
I'm going to be blunt. This idea sucks. Riven does not need attack speed. Gameplay wise, attack speed is one of the weakest stats Riven could build. Also, riven's passive is her only real strength. Take that away, and she suddenly requires tank stats which ruins her uniqueness. This change would make every single one of Riven's bad matchups much worse and any of her survivable matchups where she needs to do short trades only unwinnable. Hell, she wouldn't even be able to scare off a Nasus at the start. Why should every single champ in the game have the ability to be a threat right from the start but not a skirmisher whose effectiveness is already based heavily on her player's skill level?? Why not instead give her a fighting game inspired super meter? Make it so this meter is filled like it is in a fighting game, whereas it rises by deal damage, taking damage and passively and slowly gain meter while under 35% pf her health? From here, she has her normal abilities as usual, but she can cast "EX" versions of those moves, which are simply stronger versions of those moves with either better damage or some other special quality over their weakened counterparts, at the cost of 25% of her meter and have the ability to cast either part of her ult at 50% meter? This way you don't kill her ability to trade while at low meter, but you also cap how much power she can bring to any one fight even while at full meter. Its a fun resource mechanic that is both fun for the Riven and a good way to allow her opponent a clear idea what Riven is capable of with certain amounts of meter.
: I've never known a Riven main who was a decent human being.

Statements like this and the OP's make me think. With as much hate Riven (and Yasuo) mains get on a regular basis for just existing at this point, I can't blame them for being toxic. I used to apologize on their behalf as a Riven main, but now I don't feel like I should. At this point, Riven and Yasuo mains are either reflexively toxic right back or un-apologetically thick skinned as a result of their environment.
: Yasuo is winning the VS event... will you stand for this?
I don't know about the rest of you, but a world without laws and order would not be pleasant. Sure, you'd be free, but free to do _what_ exactly? Free to constantly fight against hunger and dehydration? Free to fight to the death with anything with food just to survive one more day? Free to grow your own food, only to fight off bandits who have little to no responsibility to keep them at bay daily? Humans inherently need communities to survive, and communities require order to keep themselves from falling apart.

: Yasuo is winning the VS event... will you stand for this?
I'm real annoyed that they decided to get the slider working toward the end of the event. I was under the assumption it was even. Also, 10 bans is not doing shit. Go into Blind and beat the crap out of the Yasuos as Riven. That will help gather points faster. EDIT: I did a stupid. The event is longer than I thought. WE HAVE TIME.
: So, I have to ask about Gangplank...
I would have expected more support from his ship. Pirate minions, cannon fire unlike his ult or even a gold harvesting mechanic like Draven.
: What did you get from your free orb of order/chaos?
I'm plunking away at the icons, so the orbs are not on the list of things I'm after

: Huge update to Pokemon go. Entire gym system reworked!
The mechanics of the game where not the problem. The problem was the crappy tracking system. I was literally better off sitting at a pokestop and setting up a lure than anything else, which did the opposite of what the game was supposed to do.
: Phobia support group
I've actually got used to my arachnophobia by use of self induced exposure therapy. I'm proud to say I can now look at fairly large spiders now without losing my shit and even think some spiders, particularly jumping spiders, are actually rather adorable, even making a point to get closer to look at their confused and lost looking expressions. I'd post to demonstrate what I mean, but rules are rules.
: How to play riven against armor?
You will want to get BC like you did. After that, go for Last whisper and finish into whichever one makes more sense in that game. Your finished build should look like {{item:3071}} {{item:3074}} {{item:3036}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3812}} and then either {{item:3072}} or {{item:3147}} based on how your fights have been going and your general needs throughout the game against other champions besides the armor stacking top laner. Calling in your AP mid also helps a ton. Riven used to be really good at handling armor stacking, but now attack speed champs have it a lot better than her. Right now, Riven is better off understanding that she can't win against everyone. If they start stacking armor, build BC, LW and Lethality, but be aware that your kit is more based around assassination than tank shred and play accordingly.

: When all your freinds chose riven and you chose yasuo
*{{champion:157}} then dies lvl three to {{champion:92}} with a {{item:3047}}*
: Chaos and Light, FML
You are not locked into a side. You can swap sides every single day for the entirety of the event. You could get the NightBringer Yasuo border then buy Nightbringer Yasuo and have both skins, but keep in mind that only NB Yas will have the border. Getting Dawnbringer Riven's border requires its own effort.
: Order vs. Chaos? More like...
Extreme is not necessarily evil. DB Riven is out to do right by the world. Harshness doesn't mean malevolence. True lawful evil would be scamming you into willfully giving money within the limits of the law, or doing terrible things but with a strict set of rules.
: Order or Chaos? Unofficial event poll
Without order, what would become of us? We would still be beating each other with sticks. We'd kill or we'd starve. Happiness would evaporate into thin air. Sure, in chaos you gain freedom in exchange for security, but at what point do you go too far? At what point does a lack of responsibility decays morality?
: What roles can Taliyah play other than mid?
Ive seen streamers take her jungle, so I know she works there. I also see no reason she would struggle top being ranged as she is. Give it a shot and try looking up guides. Couldn't hurt to try.

: Where is kale and morgana during this event?
Yasuo and Riven should have at least had special lines toward them. I feel like they really gimped on the VO department on this one.
: What's The Best Tank Top Laner?
Shen is alright. So is Poppy.
: Did anyone know that the Yasuo boarder and Riven only work if you have the skin?
I knew this a long time ahead of time. Cordinated my RP spending accordingly to I could get the border at the same time I got the skin. Aka, ASAP.
: Now, add names to pings
I'm just thankful for the new "warded" ping. Saves me the effort of stopping to explain why I'm not ganking someone's lane or telling my jungler to gank at his own risk.
