: So "Hexdrinker is a lot better than Seekers because mages outscale assassins" - Riot
Look at the roster of AP assassins. {{champion:103}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:55}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:7}} Elise and Eve are almost purely AP, but they're junglers who don't need the laning power from hexdrinker. Most of the others can make use of it. Akali, Kat, and Fizz have scalings, so it's not a big deal if they pick one up. Diana and Ekko, even if they lack AD scalings, use auto attacks enough that the AD works just fine. The only ones it's bad on are Ahri and Leblanc since they're mage-assassin hybrids, and Kassadin who gets all the magic resist he needs from his passive and Q.

: I personally hate only building {{item:3157}} against AD heavy teams; there are no other armor ap items
You can also build {{item:3047}} and supplement that with items like {{item:3116}} {{item:3151}} {{item:3027}}

There is also a lot more thinking involved in Precision, Inspiration, and Domination to. There is actually thinking involved.. I stupidly took comet with Teemo... I hit 5% of my comets because they kept getting triggered by my shrooms across the map, by the time my comet traveled that distance the enemy wasn't anywhere near where they rpoced it, and it missed.
That's not how comet works. It takes the same time to impact no matter how far they are.

: I love Kleptomancy, but don't you just not get the consumables if you don't have the slots?
Auto-consumes anything you get if your inventory is full. Leads to some questionable wards, but otherwise it's fine.
Meteora (NA)
: Every game seems one-sided .. no really like EVERY game.
Preseason. It's always like this this time of year. Between genuine imbalances from all the new shit and people being garbage because they're playing new shit, everything tends to be stompy as hell.
: Grasp of the Undying change: Show HP gained, not damage dealt
It'd be much better if it would show the damage it deals in a single instance instead of total damage done (which is useless info aside from post-game analytics).
Rioter Comments
: So...... You don't need to kite past 30 minutes? The rune that REALLY has no lategame is Kleptomancy
Free elixirs. It gives good stats, but is unreliable.

I'd say something important but I get what you mean 100% instead I'll just say this with few words: Riot has always had problems with rats({{champion:17}} {{champion:29}}).
Teemo is kind of his own thing. His kit is annoying, but it's not necessarily effective. He's pretty damn bad, and Riot knows this, but enough Teemo players have sprung up who love him and make him work regardless that Riot generally leaves Teemo alone unless he's breaking something (for example, 10 minute shrooms had to be nerfed on Treeline).
: Meanwhile {{item:3508}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3031}} has been a thing for a long time

: Could it have to do with which map you're on?
No, that's too much of a difference to be merely the background. His hair went from jet black to milk chocolate.
Rioter Comments
: So basically with this...she literally has no passive. Talk about unloved champions...she's like the new Yorick now.
Yorick has a passive. It's mediocre, but very much there.
: Ornn can upgrade his allies' items after level 13.I think the description is not wrong....
From the wiki: MASTER CRAFTSMAN: When Ornn reaches level 13, he and each of his teammates can purchase MASTERWORK upgrades. Each player may only have one MASTERWORK upgrade at a time.
: Unfortunately don't feel that's true anymore. Riot's brand has become a little archaic. A little too many 'sex' based characters and not enough variety. Unfortunately it's the era of the conservative and people are starting to expect more.
No, League still beats Dota on characterization. For the vast majority of the roster, Dota heroes don't have personalities beyond their names.
: If Ornn upgrades other players' items,he loses gold for his build.Therefore,these upgrades happen mostly when Ornn is ahead either in gold or his team is ahead on kills. Even at this case,these upgrades rarely happen.The reason is simple.All games in Gold and bellow at least end fast.There is no time and farm for Ornn to do these upgrades.Thus,the prices are fine by me. I have no idea about Platinum or higher tiers' games.But i presume,that Ornn players do the upgrades late game.
Ornn doesn't buy the upgrades for his allies. They're items like any other.
Rioter Comments
: Watching Zoe's gameplay looks like she's gonna have a 30% win rate in the start...
Her Q has the damage of old Nid spears without the accompanying weakness of low wave clear. Extra summs/items are awesome, but her damage is seriously through the roof. She's hard, but not to an ungodly degree. It'll take all of a week for people to get good enough at her to make her pick or ban.

The matchmaking system shits out and throws together any players it can find after 3-4 minutes, and you end up with a game full of Diamond and Master players with two solo queued Silver players thrown in for shits and giggles. Which you would know if you were high ranked. Which you're not. I'm not sure why you're even posting in a topic that you have no knowledge about.
NiamhNyx (NA)
: Ranked MMR =/= to Normal MMR Most High Elo players run ranked more often then they run in normal, That makes their NORMAL MMR hit a stand still while their RANKED MMR is either rising or dropping. You can be in Bronze in ranked and end up facing a challenger in normal's because it is a different system. I am Silver 3 in ranked but you know what I face in normals? Mainly Gold and Plat players, why? Because my NORMAL MMR IS NOT MY RANKED MMR. I have faced quite a few diamond players, the occasional master and one challenger in my entire time playing this game. Now why would I be paired up against them? Ohh I dont know, maybe because NORMAL MMR =/= RANKED MMR. {{sticker:sg-lulu}} I dont know what is so hard to understand about that. It is really simple Normal MMR =/= Ranked MMR.
Ok? I'm not saying I don't understand the system. I'm saying the system needs changing since it does a horrible job of matchmaking for anybody with a high rank.
NiamhNyx (NA)
: You have no clue how match making in normals works do you. The next message will be me simplifying it for your obviously small brain.
No need to be a %%%%. You sound like a Rick and Morty fan.
Rioter Comments
: You'd have to give them utility scaling off ad or crit. If their kit has most of the power budget sunk into team utility spells, then the champ will not solo-lane. But they will buy AD/crit if these stats improve their team utility. It would be weird, but you could make it work.
If they're buying AD and Crit, they'd have enough auto attack DPS that they'd be played as a carry. They'd have high damage and high utility.
: frozen mallet its only toxic on Gnar Other than that this item is fine... Gnar need to be removed...everyone that is diamond +++ agree that Gnar is a mistake of a champion...
No. We don't. He's annoying, but manageable. You're plat 4, you can't speak for diamond players the same way I can't speak for the pros.
: Honestly: People want Riot to cover for their bad decisions/play too much
Player: WTF YASUO IS SO BULLSHIT HE JUST ATE MY ENTIRE MF ULT!!!!! Riot: ...don't ult into windwall? Player: FUCK OFF
: There's always that ONE guy on the enemy team.
: I think it's about time we have "AD" Support!
{{champion:14}} {{champion:48}} {{champion:21}} are viable supports. Back before the rework, I knew I guy who played {{champion:421}} support. The problem with an AD support is that it's hard to make someone simultaneously want to build AD and go support. If their AD scalings are good, they would just be played as an ADC, fighter, or caster. If their scalings aren't good, they'd just be played as a tank.
Rioter Comments
: league newest( and cutest) champion: Zoe aspect of twilight
They should change Cyberpop to have heterochromia like the classic skin.
: Fortunately, she isn't as mobile as I originally feared. Her blink is her ultimate. Her sleep trap popping out over a wall will be irritating and will also make it very hard to chase or escape her, but she doesn't look quite as annoying as I expected from her teaser.
The ult will probably be on a 15 second CD or something like that.
: AP shouldnt be played to force tanks to buy MR
You're talking out your ass and you know it. If you're only choosing an AP champion because you need an AP on your team, it wouldn't really matter WHICH you choose. And yet {{champion:61}} is a top tier competitive pick, while {{champion:74}} is relegated to Rezone youtube clips. You pick your champion for what they bring that your teamcomp needs. That's how it's always been and how it will continue to be.
: TO ALL LEAGUE PLAYERS READING BOARDS:Don't make complaining topics about unbalance in preseason pls.
Vonler (EUNE)
: So you mean to say he doesn't need any sort of gameplay updating? He is representing the time mage fantasy as well as he can... with his mechanical clockwork hextech bombs, ability that just reduces cooldowns on his basic abilities and a passive that feels quite unsatisfying. Yep, totally up to date kit.
The only thing making his Q mechanical is the sprite used for the bomb. Replacing a sprite is beyond simple. His W makes sense for a time mage. His passive isn't flashy, but that's not the highlight of his kit.
: Now I can draw dicks in the enemy base with wards again!
Theres' still a ward ca- wait a minute Ward corpse dots are a thing. You're a genius.
: I just don't like her mouth. I know I'm not gonna like fighting against her either.
She is a snake in disguise. _unhinges jaw_

: Have you watched Ponyo, or played Ni no Kuni? The character expressions don't seem out of wack if you look at the animation there :)
Anime art styles don't translate well into 3d as a general rule. Also, this is more of a Disney/Pixar vibe.
: Zoe is now teased.
Metleon (NA)
: How do you destroy 7 inhibs without winning a single game? Are you just one of those players that just ARAMs after 10 min?
You play Nasus for 7 games while playing with bronze friends. Win lane hard, take an inhib at 25 minutes, get rekt by the equally fed adc with a qss.
