Literally stopped playing this game thanks to you guys making Tahm Kench practically unplayable. Glad to see nothing has changed for this company.

: you're delusionnal if you think ASol was healthy for the game he won literally every single early game by hardshoving mid, ganking bot, etc there was no interaction whatsoever between him and his laner the rework corrected that, gave him the tools to play the 1v1 without loosing completly his roaming potential sorry if you mains don't like it, but no one liked laning/playing agaisnt this champ either
I've played like 10 games of Aurelion Sol in total, I by no means main him. And I'm sorry but I just don't agree. Never until this rework came out did I see anyone raging and calling out Aurelion Sol as a busted and toxic champion.
Moody P (NA)
: Have Aurelion players considered that the rework isn't for them?
Now Aurelion Sol was not a healthy champion? AURELION SOL?!?! I swear people will go to any lengths to defend reworks no matter how good or bad they wind up being. I'm really tired of seeing the response "their old kit was unhealthy for the game" used against literally anyone who says they don't like a rework. Like does that statement even have any value anymore? What champion would you argue has a healthy kit if all of these champs who got reworked supposedly don't?
: Chat Restrictions
I agree, the system seems much harsher than it used to be. I think a big part of the problem is that the system is much harsher on pushing out chat restrictions over punishments for griefing. Griefing often leads to toxicity in chat but unfortunately because it is not as easy to track by the automated system, the people who talk are the ones being punished regardless of the dynamics of the actual game in question.
Datr2x (EUNE)
: should it be bannable? it was conversation on league /all chat , enemy team was talking about my mum
I know how you feel. I just got a chat restriction after getting upset with a Draven in my game that was calling me gay as an insult and acting really homophobic towards me. Unfortunately it came at a really bad time when I am dealing with people telling me that there is something wrong with me for being gay irl the last few days so it hit me harder than usual. Sorry this happened to you friend. Just know that you're not a bad person just because Riot's automated system told you so.
: Chat restrictions ruin chance at honor level.
I agree with you that chat restrictions shouldn't be so harsh. Sometimes people have bad days or there is something else deeper going on that the automated system just can't detect. For instance, I was playing a game in my ranked series this week as Morgana support with a Gragas adc. I'm not the type of person to care about off-meta picks as long as the person is actually trying. However, around the 4 or 5 minute mark Gragas left lane and went top. No one said anything and it was fine that it seemed like he was just trying to gank top. but 7 minutes later he had still not returned to lane and I was effectively playing 1v2 versus a Draven and Pyke (the Draven was also harrassing me for being gay in all chat). I asked Gragas what he was doing and if he could come back to lane. He didn't respond, just kept walking around farming jungle and top lane. And I lost my cool a little bit and said that if he wasn't going to help his team that I would report him and that he was "pissing me off" because he was refusing to help the team. And I got a chat ban for it. I'm not saying that people don't deserve to be banned for their words and yeah I wasn't acting nice towards the Gragas in my game. But I have been having a particularly bad last couple of days irl because of people telling me there is something wrong with me because I am gay and then the Draven in my game was flaming me and calling me gay as an insult and on top of that my Gragas decides he doesn't want to communicate, help during any teamfights, or even come bot lane at all despite me not saying anything to him until after he had been gone a good 7 minutes or so.

Stop nerfing Tahm Kench you monsters!
: I'm fully prepared for the eventual Nasus rework. I love playing him, but at the same time, I do recognize just how unhealthy his design is at its core. It's mostly people just not willing to accept they've been abusing a skilless statcheck the entire time.
Shame on all those Urgot/Volibear/Galio/etc. mains who abused such a broken champion. How dare they not realize they only got to diamond because they abused these skilless statchecks??

It did make me quit tbh. :P

His devour now immobilizes him and he can't make picks anymore because his tongue lash consumes stacks.
: Riot is willing to make really bad balance changes around perservation or creation of "identity"
Riot doesn't touch a champ's identity unless their name is Tahm Kench... :( RIP Catfish
Cloud273 (NA)
: Unpopular opinion...Volibear is actually fun and balanced in his current state
I am with you. Volibear is one of the few champions left that I enjoy after having all my favorites gutted and his kit is so much fun. It's not overcomplicated like every other champion in League and makes you feel good as you charge at your enemies. :) Everything I have seen about his rework so far has not seemed promising. The concept art looks like Volibear taken from a fluffy polar bear to some hulking war torn monster. I am scared this rework will end up just like Galio or Aatrox where the reworked champion only lightly resembles the original champion, and that Riot won't be able to resist giving him a broken kit that forces them to gut him shortly after they completely change who Voli is... :/
DeusVult (NA)
: {{champion:106}} Hoping they dont mess him up too much in his VGU
Same, I love Voli. Definitely worried about how his VGU will go after seeing the concept art for it.
: @Riot, I seriously advice you to make "let's fix it" the motto of Season 10 when you'll develop it
If I'm being honest I don't even remember them doing anything for preseason this year apart from a normal balance patch... But I guess that makes it better than the nightmare which has been runes reforged.
: New Thresh Lantern Mechanic
Thresh doesn't need any more buffs...
: I can't evne follow the reasoning behind things riot is doing these days.
I mean you know they have no idea what they are doing with game balance anymore when they literally stated in the last patch notes that they were gutting Tahm for being annoying to play against. They removed so many mechanics that Tahm is not even the same champion anymore.
: Patch 9.14 notes
I hope the Rioter working on Tahm Kench gets fired. Downvote me all you want but this is a straight dumpstering of my favorite champ.
Nea104 (EUW)
: Terrible, as expected from this people.
: YES. FANTASTIC. As a million point teemo, this is the BEST possible outcome. Thank you for not ruining my champ with unnecessary changes. TEEMO IS FINE.
Idk why you are being downvoted, but as someone who also loves to play Teemo (don't have quite 1mil points though, closer to 400k I think) I agree. These changes completely changed the identity of the champ and I am happy to see they are being dropped. Leave Teemo alone!!!
Riot Jag (NA)
: Update on Teemo changes
This is the happiest news I have gotten all week. :)
: Opinion: "fun to play against" is the most bullshit term to ever exist
Yeah, I hate so much when Riot nerfs a champion on the basis that they "aren't fun to play against." Like if that is a legit reason to mess around with a champion, then over half the roster should be gutted. The Teemo rework they are working on they keep stating to be because they want him to be less frustrating to play against and so they want to shift his gameplay away from the shrooms which is like the main reason people play Teemo to begin with. Riot needs to start putting people on champions that they enjoy and care about. Not employees who have a personal vendetta against the champ because they think they are not fun to play against.
: He just needs reverted, honestly. I think Riot needs to lay off the VGUs until they get some actual people who know what they are doing. Not trying to sling mud, just stating a fact.
I agree. It seems like people complain about all the reworked champions post-VGU more than they did with the champ originally. Plus almost every rework that Riot does feels like it was made by someone who doesn't get why the original champion was so beloved. As someone who enjoys playing Volibear jungle, I am already saddened knowing that my jungle main will be completely altered both in the way he plays and his appearance within the next year. The concept art was pretty concerning personally too. Seems like the people at Riot envision Volibear as some huge hulking edgy bear with weapons jabbed into his back and all scarred up. I don't play Voli because he's edgy, I play him because he's a giant fluffy bear.

He has been out for a long time and people have grown attached to him. While that number may not be very high for {{champion:9}} in particular, if he was to get reworked (which I think he is being looked at with {{champion:106}} and such right now) his mains, and the people that like the champ would be happy and more people would try the champion out and possibly find a new main or just another champ they love to play.

Even if you call the reworked champ Fiddlesticks too, he will not be the same as is the case with all of the other reworked champions (Morgana is the exception). If they released a new champion instead, then I still have my Fiddlesticks support. That is my point.

Honestly, I think new champions are much more exciting than reworks and I would rather see Riot slow down/stop with the reworks.

Teemo doesn't need any rework, we don't need to see him in pro play. Do you guys think it's possible that they'll just drop it? I've been under the impression that it's happening no matter what we want, and we just have to direct it to be the best we can.
With how often the Teemo rework keeps popping up on the PBE, I'm guessing they are probably going to push it through no matter what at some point. If it had not been brought back to the PBE after it was first introduced months ago, then I would say it is dead. However, it has found its way into several different PBE cycles at this point which makes me think that the person working on this will pursue it until something ships.
: Teemo Rework: Swift Scout is neither Swift nor a Scout.
I really wish the Rioter working on this Teemo rework would just give up and let it go already. The rework completely misunderstands why the champion is so popular and fun to play.
: I'm probably going to get flamed for this since everyone here seems to think this is a huge nerf to support Tahm but it's not as bad as you guys are misinterpreting it to be. His ally can no longer exit Tahm if he is hard CC'd during the duration of the CC. Allies can still leave of their own accord but not while he is CC'd. The biggest nerf honestly is the damage nerf to hurt his early game and the range on spit reduction making it worse at re-positioning the ally he ate. Basically the entire premise of the rage in this thread is wrong. Reading comprehension guys cmon. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
I mean I think the point isn't that this is a huge nerf, but rather that they are nerfing Tahm Kench yet again after he has received nerf after nerf in almost every patch this year.
Meddler (NA)
: Most recent version in testing was pretty E focused as follows (differences all versus previous prototype version, not versus live Teemo): - No longer granted extra sight range - CD didn't tick down faster in brush - Distance while invisible up a bit - CD lower - Standing in brush slowly replenished distance Teemo could move while invisible Haven't heard how playtesting with that went though. Expect this will likely continue as a slow burn project rather than something that gets released or killed quickly, especially given it's the secondary priority of the designer working on it.
Please kill it, the changes completely alter the kind of champion that Teemo is...
: There's already a nerf targeted at top Tahm on the way. https://twitter.com/RiotRepertoir/status/1136365569362485248
Jesus more nerfs??? Can Riot stop changing my favorite champion patch after patch after patch?
GreenKnight (EUNE)
: Well, reworks are still here, so the game is in a terrible state.
Riot: We are slowing down production on reworks next year and focusing more on adding new champions again. Also Riot: We have decided we will rework both Fiddlesticks and Volibear at the same time.
: Unfortunate for people who have terrible taste and/or only like an old champ when their kit is broken.
Oh yes, shame on those Volibear mains for playing a champion as busted as him. Obviously there is something wrong with these people who clearly only play Volibear because he is a big fluffy bear or because he is broken in ranked. /s

Stop leaving Tahm Kench to rot. He should 100% be one of the tanks being considered for buffs after how bad he was dumpstered.

: "I also like to put things in quotes that don't reflect what someone said" - D357R0Y3R Let me rephrase the statement which was from the post where I was talking about why we hadn't nerfed some of the high presence champs in pro play on 8.19. Hope this is clearer for you. 1. On 8.15/8.16 Kai'sa had high presence in pro play (76%), but had more picks than bans. 2. On 8.18 we nerfed her. 3. On 8.19 we opted to not nerf her again due to the fact we'd already nerfed her since the last pro play we'd seen. 4. On 8.19 we instead buffed some champs that are considered decent against her as a low range marksman (Pyke, Thresh, Kog'maw), while nerfing some that gave her a lot of protection (Braum/Tahm Kench). We're doing some power curve shifts to Kai'sa for potentially 8.21, but it's more involved than a standard buff/nerf and not something we were going to do for 8.19. Really enjoy talking on the boards!

Yeah because Tahm wasn't already nerfed enough prior to 8.19, let's nerf him some more because he synergizes too well with Kai'sa. No reason to nerf Kai'sa, just keep nerfing Tahm who nobody cares about (we think)... -_-
: I'm Still Furious about Sejuani.
Sorry about Sej. :( I feel similar about my favorite champ Tahm Kench who has just been dumpstered to the point he is barely playable anymore. Obviously Kench wasn't "reworked" like Sej though.

Why does Karma always get all the balance team's attention while you guys continuously choose to do nothing positive to help Tahm Kench and his playerbase?
: Frustration.
Yeah, Tahm Kench is my favorite champion but playing him after the double patches of nerfs he got, it really feels like I am playing with a huge handicap just for liking a certain champion that other people don't.
: Is the plan just to slowly remove tahm from the game?
Tahm Kench being my favorite champion, the way the balance team has treated him recently has really turned me off the game.
: That’s a pretty flat out lie. Riot has repeatedly said they’ve messed up on something, or that they could have done better. Just because *you* don’t think a change is good doesn’t mean it isn’t as a whole.

Can you give me some examples?
: I'm so fed up with the balance team after this patch
I would add the absurd Tahm Kench nerfs after he was already nerfed hard just a few weeks ago and is sitting around a 46% win rate. Someone on the balance team clearly hates this champion and will not be satisfied until they have him hit a sub 45% win rate it seems. This is just getting ridiculous; the balance team has no philosophy guiding them. They just make dumb choices, never fix them, and somehow still get paid to do their jobs. Like this isn't just one or two bad patches anymore. Nearly the entire season has been filled with some of the most idiotic balance changes that have ever come to the game and they just keep coming.
: How are you going to say you see the issue with damage being too high
Weird comparison incoming but... If anyone from the Riot balance team were to take one of my Teacher Education classes, they would utterly fail the course when it comes to writing reflections upon their own work. The balance team always seems to think that everything they do is a positive change and never ask themselves what they could do better next time and then act on it. I just don't understand why it's so hard for them to admit, hey look we messed up; now here is our plan for how to fix it.
: Why do i feel handicaped while playing my favorite champion?
As a Tahm Kench main I feel the same way, especially after the nerfs he has received over the past few months. I love to play Tahm but he just feels like such a dumpster fire to play now that it has really killed a lot of my motivation to play League when it feels like I am being punished just for liking a particular champion.
: Patch 8.19, the patch no one asked for.
Wait, Tahm got nerfed again?! Wtf I am so pissed off at Riot. Sorry for my language, but this is ridiculous for him to get nerfed at all after the hard nerfs he received a few weeks back. Like actually, this balance team is 100% the worst League has ever had.
