: Do you think Conq is good on Qiyana
I think the combo is too fast for that... While empowered I do EQWQ and try to get out fast especially early on. I prefer Dark Harvest, the Rock-Q synergy is nice and compensate early low dmg a bit
: What noob mistakes did you make starting out?
Playing Leona top because I thought she was a Melee solo laner. Same for Amumu. It was my first 2 games ever, xerath just got released.
: is it me or
I think people are burned by the Fact that Yuumi, Mordekaiser and Qiyana are so close together (Morde is on PBE 2 weeks after Yuumi is live and Qiyana is on PBE right after Morde...). And then, I swear Qiyana = Daenerys. I love the kit, but I feel like the lore and Visual failed the champ. Great job for kit design, but the rest is urgh.
: She's not. Reav3 confirmed that she's not actually an empress. She just thinks she is/deserves to be one.

: Qiyana Champion Trailer, Abilities, and Analysis (League of Legends)
Am I the only to feel like even if the kit looks great, that they tried to force a ''Daenerys Targaryen'' persona into league just because Game of thrones is popular and ended this year ?
: Qiyana's design is probably the most boring design I've seen so far for a champion
I feel like the hair and personnality is just a way to put Daenerys Targaryen into league... Even the hints at her lore calls for it. I love the kit and the many combo possibilities but the visual design and her personnality ? Feels like Riot insisted to put Daenerys Targaryen into the league...
: What the Actual Hell is Qiyana?
She can't do all at once... Her only hard CC is the ult conditionnal stun+knockback. The root, stealth and missing HP dmg are three different version of her Q and she can only do two of them in one combo ( Q,W,Q) and she can only do dmg with her ult if the enemy in a river/bush or near a wall. She technically loses some dmg if she chooses the CC and mobility of her Q.
Urgash (EUW)
: How does Qiyana use the river element on ARAM or 3v3 ?
True and even there, ARAM bushes are only on first and second turret. It will be hard to get nature in ARAM. I think she will be an udyr case in aram : Reroll, don't pick.
Jivewolf (NA)
: New Champs Are Cool And Amazing And Make The Game More Fun
You do realise she gotta steal the element she wants from the actual terrain ? Stealth is only possible with a bush to steal nature/ Ice comes from the river Earth comes from wall and general terrain. Her hard CC is actually limited to her ult and the river while stealth requires a bush nearby.
: Oh look new champ is a super mobile assassin with 2 aoe hard ccs

: That is fair, but then what unique properties does the blade have? Is it really the Blade that is the source of her power, or is it herself?

Is it really the Blade that is the source of her power, or is it herself? Well she is an empress according to her title name... She could have gotten that weapon anywhere. My humble guess : Q,W,E : One Element each, infusing the blade with the respective element R : Elemental fusion, fury of the blade Passive : According to her elemental attunement, her Autoattack pattern will probably have a special effect.
: Qiyana Champion Teaser, and A Mini Rant (League of Legends)
The team working on her probably had the same discussion. If she has AD scalings it'S because it makes sense with her kit. The Weapon is probably what triggered this champion design and anyone looking at this silhouette and her splash art would surely read it as : The blade is the source of her dmg and blade = physical.

: Pro players are just gonna build Mordekaiser full tank then ult the carry to stall them for 7 second
Because a tank can survive a late ADC ? Vayne will just laugh if she gets ulted.
Reksee (NA)
: My thoughts on Yuumi
I will add this : She is AMAZING... but only late game. Probably the first support to actually have that much trouble in lane while having the best scaling (Except R, that dmg is crap all game) Q actually hurts alot and is a guaranteed death when chasing. Late game E is strong, but is very underwhelming early on and feels like Athene is a must rush for it ot be decent. I alway go Censer > Athene or Athene > Censer depending on my ADC AA pattern. W is fine, but some ''Base stats'' + % would feel better for it to be more useful at low ranks since support rarely reach lvl 16+ these days. Passive : The shield feels useless. I do my Auto and already lose it a second later in lane. Feels like the shield is only for myself to mitigate the punishment for getting some mana back... I rarely get a chance to put it on an ally, even late game.
: "Runes didn't make damage higher"
Old thunderlord was an AoE at first ( don't know if they changed it before Electrocute), so it was actually stronger and it was easier to proc too.
elev8ing (NA)
: Honor Locked for how long?
Honestly, the trick is also giving honors. expect a few weeks, just like actual honor (locked to lvl 0 is one checkpoint, see it that) I kept receiving honors when I was locked, barely gave them. The moment I started giving them out automatically, I raised and reached honor 5 in time (was locked in november, reached honors by september the following year)
Neamean (NA)
: The result for the VGU is coming soon who do you think won?
When Voli was allowed to actually do dmg with his ult (On-hit Drain tank had great synergy for W+R), Voli was great on release but he got old fast and they shifted power heavily on his tank part with his Q and passive while nerfing the rest quite a bit. Nocturne got the best theme potential and data shows : he's one of the most popular for new players, but he gets dropped fast. I want a REAL nightmare, I remember actually fearing his ult back in season 3-4. Mundo kit got enough tweaks to hold off longer. Fiddle could have a better kit, while keeping his iconic ult, to actually be ALWAYS viable in the jungle and not just when the meta favors a for a patch or two. He gets shafted easily because he got no tools for jungling. That W needs to be gone in order to shift power in clear speed somehow with only small sustain. Basically, he's a roaming midlaner forced to jungle without adapted tools for jungling... Shyvana could clearly get a better ult and more dragon-ish in non-ult form. I just can't see where they would bring her unlike the others... I feel like Kayle stole Shyvana potential passive (why not ascend into a dragon ? Dragon cooldown could be longer to make it more epic and stronger like they did on Swain ?)

Greater threat than the void and the Watchers trapped there ??? That threat has been teased since a very long time (Aurelion Sol, Kai'sa and probably more if you put it together...) ;)
: Mordekaiser's new ultimate looks awesome in all the right ways, but
Morde is a juggernaut with that rework and he got Free Magic pen% on his E (Up to 25%). Pretty sure he will have only AP ratios (maybe some AD ones for Gunblade like Akali ?). No matter the build, being a juggernaut means : Gotta reach you to murder you and his tools for it aren't that strong (Illaoi and Darius are great examples of Juggernaut imo)
: The only thing I'll really miss about his ult is the dragon. That was one of the first things I saw in this game that really made me go "wow, that's pretty cool". I'm excited that I'll be able to send people to the fucking shadow realm now, though.
> [{quoted}](name=4 Step Cadence,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=7kBuKkB7,comment-id=00000002,timestamp=2019-05-28T02:08:03.759+0000) > > The only thing I'll really miss about his ult is the dragon. That was one of the first things I saw in this game that really made me go "wow, that's pretty cool". > > I'm excited that I'll be able to send people to the fucking shadow realm now, though. I just wonder how they balanced it. SInce he's a juggernaut, een when you can outplay him for 7 seconds. BUT, what if you ult someone fed ? That's obviously a priority target you want to take out, but will it become suicide or the stat steal is sufficient enough for it to be fair for the Morde too ? He's not an assassin, but you gotta expect people to send the fed ones into his ult.
: Not MM, but I really don't see how they could have kept it. It was the source of nearly every bug he had in his previous (technically current but w/e) iteration. Like, sure, it was cool and all, and hilarious to use it to turn an enemy gank into a double kill, but it honestly was probably unsalvageable, not in the way that previous deleted parts of kits were (Such as Aatrox's old W), but because the mechanic was way too open to letting new bugs in with every new way to auto. For every new champion with any on-attack or on-hit effect, it opened up a path to a new bug. And sure, Riot could have made it far less spaghetti this time around, but I doubt they could have fixed it for good. A new champion would come out and it'd cause problems with it.

And sure, Riot could have made it far less spaghetti this time around, but I doubt they could have fixed it for good. A new champion would come out and it'd cause problems with it. Speaking of bugs, Jinx/Jhin designer is making the next ADC and it's another unique one... so we can could guess it was already problematic even if they cleaned the code. The new ult is nice if Morde actually gains a nice stat boost (A way to actually have a chance against someone fed late game, without annihilating the opponent). I want to make it clear, the new ult looks awesome ! I was just wondering, if sacrificing the soul control was worth it and it seems like it. I'm far to be a real Morde player, but always been interested in Malicious Metal threads in hope that the new Morde would follow his vision (I was hyped for the new Morde since long ago) and damn he looks nice.
: I don't mind losing the ghost at all. It actually undermined Mordekaiser's theme since he was heavily reliant on a thrall than his own prowess, made him too much of a backline commander instead of this Indestructible Warlord. He's everything I ever wanted and I've know that the moment Riot flew me in to playtest him.

Oh so you got to test the fully locked kit Dang nice :o Totally makes sense for the thematic. I'm more of a gameplay guy then a lore one. I never liked Morde kit since the ''duo bot'' rework, but you built up a huge hype about him even before the VGU was made official. Thanks for that x) I feel like I've known Morde without needing to play or read everything about him just because of you o/ !
: I wonder how this interacts with trundle R lol. Guessing whoever ults first will lose, or it could just bug out and they start giving eachother tons of stats or something.
> [{quoted}](name=Tahminatrix ,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=1EfXytsh,comment-id=00020000,timestamp=2019-05-28T01:15:03.009+0000) > > I wonder how this interacts with trundle R lol. > > Guessing whoever ults first will lose, or it could just bug out and they start giving eachother tons of stats or something. Trundle steals resistance. As a AP juggernaut will have little MR/Armor. Stealing AD ? useless, Morde is probably full AP with some AD scaling to make gunblade useful. Trundle won't have much to steal too since he counts of his Q AD steal, so meh, doesn't work for both of them imo.
: Morde is simply perfect.
You're not sad they didn't keep the Soul control part of his ult ? It feels like Swain rework to me. By that I mean : even if the rework is great, I feel like they neglected a key part of the kit (For Swain they scrapped everything tbh... it's not that bad for Morde) . From my understanding, the project was iceboxed for months because they kept trying to keep the soul ult, but what's your opinion on it ? Smacking people with a mace ? Still there. Magic Aoe ? Claw is there Old W ? Passive now Shield : New W and feels more predictable to play against from their wording. But the ult ? I feel like the soul slave part was important. EDIT : Why the downvotes ? it's a legit question, I like the new ult ! Been following MM threads for a while and I thought Soul crushing/Control was core to Morde, but I'm wrong fine.
: Mord ult literally makes no sense for the character
Learn to fucking read : Mordekaiser banishes a single enemy champion to the Death Realm for a 7 second 1v1, stealing a percent of their core stats. If he kills his target, he consumes their soul, keeping their partial stats until they respawn." HE STEALS PART OF THE TARGET STATS. Target is fed ? Well fk you now he's stronger. It will be probably %Adaptative damage. I can still see him becoming scary with Yuumi Botlane lol.

They finally fixed it for Blitz Q... Morgana still lingers.

Nami does everything Yuumi does better sadly... Better ult for engage, poke and heal included. Great Stat boost with E for 1v1 Sona also does it better, the only main difference being : Sona can die. I feel like they cutted off alot of power because she's untargetable and should die last on any teamfight when played well, but she gives so little as a support.... Exhaust + Ignite is a plus on suport without losing too much on escapes, but meh. Yuumi shield is extremely risky to get, with 500 AA range, the heal is extremely weak and 21% of her AP given as AD from a support is basically a free BF but all supports got a free stat boost somewhere to give.

: Sylas, the Unshackled
About Neeko and Sylas development Timeline, did they happen to start development at about the same time ? (only one month to set them apart and you were confident enough to tease him in August...) They seem to have very similar gameplay objectives and highly requested mechanics from the community. Feels like you divided a concept into two champs. Neeko : Steal a champion appearance (BlackMarket brawler into an item !) Sylas : Steal a champion ult/Spell Did Zoe development helped out too since she can steal summoner spells ? The three possible ''Stealing'' gameplay hooks came out in just about a year and seem to have the same purpose :p EDIT : Question #2 : was the close release of 2 mages in a row intended ? When it happened with A.sol and Taliyah, I remember you guys (Meddler back then) telling it wasn't intended/cool because A.sol got delayed and they were very niche/hard mages on release. I feel like we got alot of AP mid starting with Zoe. Was it an objective for 2018 ? Are Mages going to slow down for a while ? I main AP mids so I won't complain even if sylas seems more of an AP Top. I did feel it was pretty dry for ''Traditionnal/Easier'' mages since Vel'koz in early 2014 (Azir, A.Sol and Taliyah being quite unique and hard to play)
: Okay well thats a little more reasonable. Thanks for the explanation!
To clarify it even more : Due to his own 9 second cooldown on his Hijack it means : You are can spam as much ult are you can (it's a point and click steal because there is already counterplay to the ults) during a teamfight but then you have to wait a long time before stealing again. So sometimes you might want to ''Save'' an hijack for later so you don't have everyone on the ''110% of original CD''. You will never use a copied ult as much as the original champ, but you bring alot more ults in late game teamfights ! The price is fair and can be adjusted easily. Also, alot of ults are useless depending on your build : {{champion:77}} RIP without attack speed for example.{{champion:72}} You have the CC but probably not the movement speed to make it efficient, {{champion:268}} no Shurima-shuffle, but still a good CC. etc etc. He's more niche/counterpick than people think. Gotta take the time to think over that ult.
