: illaoi VS mord
Yes it is fine. Everything outside besides turrets are gone. Illaoi tentacles, Heimer turrets, everything. Working as intended.
Rexxiee (NA)
: Nerf brand already
Brand is pretty easy to skirt around his skillshots. His W does tremendous damage I agree, but pre 6 he needs to hit all 3 of his abilities to get his full 3-stack passive off, so if you can keep an eye on that it will help tremendously. Brand also has mana issues so keep that in mind. His passive 4% was like that for a very long time, then they nerfed it to 2%. No one really complained back then. Surprised we are hearing about it now with league of mobility being a thing. The biggest thing to keep in mind is staying behind minions so his Q does not hit you. Slow moving linear skillshot that will stun if you're ablaze. All hiss abilities besides his E are very telegraphed. Above Gold everyone knows how easy it is to kill a Brand, whether it is mid or bot lane. Goodluck! I don't believe he is OP at all, frankly, this meta right now is what brought him back. More bruisers that have to run at him works in Brands favor. Just like Mord. And Mord is doing VERY well bot, yet I don't see anyone complaining about him lol.
: Honestly, there's not a single mechanic that should be kept about current Mordekaiser. And yes, I know how weird this sounds coming from **me**. But it's true that Mordekaiser's main problem is a lack of proper, coherent gameplay and lore fantasy. He's an unholy agglomeration of different themes: -He's a metalmancer -He's a necromancer -He's a Burst Mage -He's a sustained damage dealer -He's a top laner -He's a jungler -He's a mid laner -He's a bot laner -He's about single target burst -He's about extended fights -He's durable -And yet he doesn't want to fight in the frontline -He's neither truly Shadow Isles but still not Noxian He's a mess of themes and needs the "Swain Approach" where Riot decided to deliver on what they **think** is Mordekaiser, disregarding most, if not all, the sentiments of current mains of the champion. And honstly, that's the best approach to this seeing that what draws me, and many Mordekaiser mains, to the champion is the **Idea** of Mordekaiser and not his actual in-game version. While I do love playing him, it's the theme/identity he promises that keeps me playing him. So yes, Morde might get reworked soon, but it will definitely not be how a lot of people expect it to turn out.

Im not holding my breath on that last part. We will probably have to wait another 2 years for it to happen and by then, most of us will be gone from league.

: Why Riot will keep nerfing "shit" around the LCS
I agree mostly. But the issue really comes into play when there is a nerf to the portion of a champs kit that is NOT the issue. I think that is the biggest issue that happens when it comes to balance. Riot is on top of whos too strong, albeit sometimes it takes them too long to do something about it. Don't forget Riot trashing champs and not touching them, destroying the playerbase of a champ for X amount of time (just look at Yorick and Mord). Yes, people will bring up that they did get updates and whatnot, but there are still so many issues with them. If Riot actually followed up with these champs, then I think we would get much fewer salty threads. I for one wish Riot would actually do something for the _literal hundreds_ of bugs that Mord has but they just continue side stepping him like he doesn't exist. It's extremely upsetting as a player to have the devs not caring about parts of their game that is evolving like it is. I guess I have to wait another 3+ years for Riot to even touch those two champs and maybe place them in a better spot.

Yorick is in a great spot. never said he wasn't. But for many previous yorick players like myself he is not great. He feels like a shitty Nasus with his Q. His Ghouls are garbage mid-late game. Maiden is alright but dies far too quickly against champs (towers it is ok for her to die fast, it would be overloaded if she didn't). I just wish his ghouls were more impactful late game. Is that something that is too ridiculous to want?

Mord just blows yet we Mord mains are somehow managing. And now Aatrox. Can't use his passive in a teamfight unless hehits his Q, E AND 3 people with his ult.
Wráthful (EUNE)
: What have u done to Aatrox.
In 1v1 fights he isnt too bad. but once you get to teamfights his passive is worthless. They royally fucked him up, where to get your passive revive off the opposing team has to actually fuck up. It is no longer whether you time it right, or go in with your passive to allow your teammates to follow up. Now its strictly a screw up from the other team. I had hopes for this but jesus christ this is throwing him into the dumpster even more. Glad to see Riot caring enough to put him so far down that no one will play him. This is like Old Yorick all over again
: It's amazing that tank players, of all players, are the ones complaining about lethality
Wow are you just flat out wrong. With lethality as broken as it is right now, everyone, including tanks, get melted to shit. So when something is so utterly fucked up like this destroys game play for every class that doesn't use it, only certain people are allowed to complain?

DaNinad (NA)
: Aatrox Buffs
We were told he would get buffs during preseason. Then after they missed that without saying anything they said he would get buffs end of january/early february. Still haven't seen anything. Don't be surprised if we get nothing until the divers class re-work. They would rather work on stuff for E-sports than on things they have promised us.
: @riot - shen should be doing great in this meta
Its funny because a Rioter has stated that the the sword mechanic did not hit the mark for Shen and it was a mistake (this was stated about a month ago ill try to dig it up) so we will see them come back to shen at one point but that won't be for a very long time.

Nebuul (NA)
: Almost half my games I have to kill and reconnect
Every other game without fail my client crashes and does this. WIthout fail. You are not the only one, beta client is having serious issues that Riot is not speaking about, and is refusing to tell us why this is happening even though its been happening since the Open beta release.
: Brand and Zyra as Support primary, Mage(APC) secondary.. Are we really accepting this?
As a Brand mid main, I can say its because Brand is outclassed in almost every single case. There are only a few instances that he will be good in mid lane. This has been the case for a while now. He gets shit on my assassins. Most mid mages shit on him too. The only place he fits is support right now.
: Can we stop pretending we can actually balance Morde with his current kit without him needing Rylais
If only we could get some sort of response from a red about this. It is kind of important as changing one item will nullify this class of champs (ap bruiser)

What's wrong with building DMP or Randuin's or Iceborn or Frozen Mallet on Morde instead? Also for this, where you stated youre ok with a champ being dumpstered. Frozen Mallet is horrible on him. Completely worthless as Mord is an AP champ, not an AD. DMP isn't bad but that doesnt mean shit as youre speaking of it as a speed item for him to get into fights. Ok, he can GET there. But he cant actually fight at that poing as the enemy will simply run away. Its that simple. Those items wont help him in the actual fight, just pre fight.

Here, I'll even offer up some possible compensation buffs if Rylai's becomes unusable on Morde (just understand that I don't play Morde, so I'm trying here but don't get upset if I screw it up) W - Heal removed New effect: While you are touching and emitting the shockwave, every enemy that takes damage is also slowed by 30/40/50/60/70% for one second. You can reactivate the ability after you cast it to have an explosion around both Morde and the target for the explosion damage and a 50% slow that decays over its duration for 1.5 seconds. E - Bonus shield generation reduced to 10% max per champion hit from 15% New effect - Enemy champions struck by E are Grounded for 1/1.5/2/2.5/3 seconds, and Mordekaiser gains a 25/40/55/70/85% speed boost when moving towards that champion.

I see what you're trying to do for sure. The biggest reason Mord buys Rylais right now is because every ability he has gives a slow. That is the only way he can hold onto someone at this age of league. With the amount of ability creep its fucking disgusting. Having an ability slow instead of relying on an item is deff something we want but...it wont allow him to actually stick to his target. he would be able to get maybe...2 hits of his Q off, might get some damage from his W and get one E off. And normally that is fine. So I wouldnt mind trying this as thats a full rotation. But Mord is good in long fights. Short fights like that he sucks at. But again, would not mind trying that.

That's what I'm arguing against. Yea i dont agree with the VGU so we are on the same page. Your first statement seemed like Mord would be fine with Ryalis destroyed, and that you are ok with mord sitting at the bottom and being shit again. As long as he is still playable thats all that matters to me and the rest of the Mord players
: So many champions have been dumpstered before though. Morde can stay terrible for a while. Warwick, Urgot, Evelynn, and even Akali, Irelia and Karma all deserve VGU attention before him.
> [{quoted}](name=The Yetii Rider,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=w0hqn3wL,comment-id=000300010000,timestamp=2016-10-08T19:31:55.832+0000) > > So many champions have been dumpstered before though. Morde can stay terrible for a while. Warwick, Urgot, Evelynn, and even Akali, Irelia and Karma all deserve VGU attention before him. Oh I understand that. Im not even asking for a VGU. But Mord was in such a horrible spot for so long. What we Mord players would want is something in return if Rylais is destroyed. Better base stats, or Rylais still ok on us, something. As it sits we have NO way to stick to anyone or close gaps. Rylais is the only way.
: I don't see the problem here. He **needs** the slow, so what if the item is less efficient on him? Build it anyway. You'll get more damage and you'll probably have to build it second so you can get a little beef. Or hell, just build Dead Man's Plate instead. Gives you the mobility to catch your targets and a slow when you get there. Iceborn Gauntlet and work with your team. Have them set up the CC while you close, then you choke them out. It's not that hard when you play Morde with a support. Then you can just send Graves top lane and there's nothing lost on your team. Rylai's being changed would make Morde less of a solo carry, but that was the point of his rework in the first place. To force him to rely more on his teammates. And that's fine.

Just know this: If Ryalis is dumpstered (and we can kind of assume that since that is what Riot does to items that are issues) it will directly destroy Mord as well, as thats the only thing keeping him able to, ya know, actually be played.
Jøkèr (NA)
: Mordekaiser reworked how many times?
I believe he has only been reworked once. But it was a failure in the regards that they attempted to make him an ADC. If Rylais gets destroyed Mord will be destroyed. It is that simple. Being a Mord main/rank7 Mord player it is really worrisome about what is going to happen to him once Riot changes Rylais

: Regarding Brand Support
Brands base damages were all nerfed besides his W i believe, as well as all of his ratios. So no.
: Riot you forgot to add the best gamemode to the rotating queue
oh damn did not see that coming. heres an upvote
: [POLL] How do you feel about the changes made to Brand during the MYMU?
I do not believe so. In teamfights Brand excels, which I think was their primary focus, which means they completed what they wanted. On the other hand...Brand now has a MUCH harder laning phase. It is much more difficult to punish his opponent as his passive burn (pre 3 stacks) and base damages were all significantly reduced. If my opponent gets too close to the minion wave before the MYMU I could chunk them and force them back to gain a lane advantage to roam. Now, my opponent can do whatever they please as long as there are minions in the way. Does not matter how many times I hit them with my W or E. All of his damage was loaded into his 3-hit passive making him feel useless until mid/late game. Even then, you will most likely find yourself behind as it is easier for you to lose lane now. Overall: Likes: - I enjoy what they did to his passive - Massive teamfight potential and destruction Dislikes: - P, Q, W, and R were gutted via damage - Laning phase is much harder and find yourself behind a lot - Can not get full power of kit in laning phase - We were told his E would be made more centric to his kit but that fell short

That is my complaint yes. That all of his power was shifted out of his Q, E and Ult (all three abilities had base damage AND ratios reduced) and placed into his passive, one that is almost non existent in laning phase. Brand gets pushed out of lane quite hard now, making him fall behind easily. Someone could make the argument that his passive will make up for it in teamfights but I am still not too sure about it just yet. Late game with items he most certainly melts people. Maybe I just have to learn to give up on early game and just try my best to survive/farm until late game. Idk. But so far I am not having a good time with the number tweaks he was given, and the item changes didn't quite help him either in my opinion.
: The mage update has been out for three or four days. You can't expect to stay a master of {{champion:63}} after his changes, you need to learn him again. And that will generally take more than 4 days.

You can't expect to stay a master of {{champion:63}} after his changes, you need to learn him again. And that will generally take more than 4 days. You clearly did not read the patch notes on him. To get the full value of his new passive, you need to hit three skills. One being his W, another being his still shitty E that puts him far too close of range STILL, and either his ult or his Q. Now his Q is a linear easy to dodge skillshot. In laning phase it is very difficult to hit it his Q (same as pre-rework). But now his passive is useless unless you hit 3 abilities. I don't need time to learn him again. its the same shit except that i cant win trades in lane pre-6 anymore. It is that simple. Teamfights? Brand is scarier now for sure but that is at 15+ minutes. I agree that I need to learn what to build on him now but I do not need to relearn how to play him if he has all the same abilities but a different passive.
: does anyone feel like their champ isn't safe
When I first started playing it took me a while to find the champs I liked. {{champion:2}} Viking! So cool I love his playstyle.

Oh hi CertaintyT what are you doin-OH GOD PLEASE NO {{champion:112}} I dont even know what the fuck they are doing here. The changes he just got just made him so terrible feeling. {{champion:63}} Welp I can't win my lane anymore. BUT HEY AT LEAST I CAN DO WELL IN TEAMFIGHTS IF IM ABLE TO EVEN GET TO THAT STAGE {{champion:98}} Can't stand his playstyle now. No more lane sustain and that damn ghost blade makes him so much more complicated. {{champion:8}} Just. Fucking. Rip. {{champion:83}} I'm hoping to god that they don't fuck him up and actually make his rework decent. CertaintyT better not even look in his fucking direction. Only got my {{champion:27}} left but the mage item changes threw everything in a loop. Still need to figure out what to build on him anymore. Laning phase is fucking horrid with him now with no mana regen.

: Daily Reminder to look at patch notes
Not sure why you placed Brand there as someone that does so much damage. Every ability was nerfed; base damage AND AP ratios (except for his W). His passive, which was originally 8% max health is now 2%. He can no longer bully someone out of lane, still has crazy high mana costs (which are even worse now with no mana regen). But it's "ok" because his passive is great in teamfights. Now he's just bad in everything else :).
: not so bad then, when i read they were changing his passive and admitted to decreasing his 1v1 power, i assumed they were replacing on hit effects with a %health dmg passive. I must have read an older article on whats coming in 6.9 then. I really thought they were breaking Brand

: Riot Please. don't change Brand that much in 6.9
I am a Brand main since S2. His passive is being changed to lowered burn damage (from 8% per second for 4 seconds to 2% per second for 4 seconds). The changes on his Q: - Stun length 2s -> 1.5s. - Damage lowered to 80/110/140/170/200 - AP ratio lowered to .55. His Q was nerfed in every single way possible BUT it still has its stun. So I have NO idea what the hell you are talking about. Maybe you should actually read what his changes are before posting.
: What is your favorite skin line?
Pentakill line. Always overlooked but the Karthus, Olaf and Mord skins are perfect
: AFK farming with Nasus
My dog actually does this too lol
: Does Mordekaiser now benefit properly from a mastery? Yes. Doesnt that mean he is now stronger? Sure does. It can be a bug fix, but that doesnt mean it isnt a buff. Alot to comprehend, i know.

Yes. Doesnt that mean he is now stronger? Sure does. It can be a bug fix, but that doesnt mean it isnt a buff. Alot to comprehend, i know. Don't need to be a sarcastic ass. I know it benefits him. It is obvious that this is a buff to him. It was supposed to be a buff when the new masteries came out but it never worked. If anything, he is now on the same playing field as everyone else that uses Runic armor. When you phrase things like you did, you put off that he is getting actual number buffs in patch notes. That is what I looked at and I am sure others did as well. Pretentiousness isn't that great of a quality.
: Saw Voyboy play Mordekaiser today...kinda scared to see hes getting buffs.

: [2/26] NA Login Issues - RESOLVED
I would be totally fine with this, but when my que time continues to grow and grow (at 5 hours right now and started at 2) it becomes very ridiculous. There are more issues than we are being told here. With the fact that three champions are also unavailable to play just goes to show that this patch was done extremely poorly.
: Position in Queue "Over 20000"
Don't worry guys we no longer have to worry about the time jumping all around anymore. Now the server is completely down.

My que started at 30 minutes, went down to 18 then keeps shooting up. it is now currently at 56 minutes and will most likely continue to blow up. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me (not that there is an issue, but that my que is jumping like this and isnt stopping). Apparently a statement was made 40 minutes ago: http://status.leagueoflegends.com/#na so hopefully that means Riot is dealing with things.

Yup. Riot has known about it for about an hour now (at least from the server status they posted). Now the server won't even allow you to attempt to log on.
: My timer is getting higher instead of getting lower in Q. Just wanna play some ranked. lol
