: "Just dodge the hook"
To be fair, SKT played like total Bronzies in game 2. Faker and then Huni both went in alone against the entire enemy team with _no_ plan of what to do once they got there, tried to immediately turn and run away, then got hooked back in and died. I agree Blitz hook is retarded but when the "best mid laner on Earth" _walks into it intentionally_ you can't be surprised when he dies.

: Or Ezreal is finally exposing how broken red buff is on ranged champions in general IBG was not reworked(It actually got buffed for ranged champions in 5.22) Runeglaive simply got a small change to not apply spell effects like ludens, when it was finally removed it was because(logically), the sheen effect isn't something that works well on all ap junglers(like Fid and Karth who couldn't use it at all), while a ludens effect works well on all of them.

Edit since you edited yours after I replied: IBG did in fact get a mini-rework that made it's size scale with the users armor so certain Champions (EZREAL) couldn't get away with building IBG and no other armor items and using it to full effect. Ezreal wasn't the sole reason Runeglaive got removed, it was a trash item in general for anyone not named Diana or Ez, but if you think AP mid Ezreal oneshotting people for three patches straight didn't have a hand in it you're deluded. I will continue to blame Ezreal for things that are _objectively_ his fault for as long as his Q keeps breaking the game.

: Just a quick question: Have you ever thought of making a "maximum" range instead of melee only? For example: "Maximum Range 375" means champs like Rakan/Urgot can make use of this imaginary item whereas champs like Cannon Jayce/Graves can't use it? Not saying this would balance/etc. something but I was curious. Especially considering how many league champs either transform or are psuedo-range with not-melee but pale greatly compared to standard ADCs.

My big issue with Wither has always been that it (very early, actually) reaches a point where the duration is as long as the cooldown.

I have mixed feelings on his balance state. He's fun as all fuck and I love him, but usually he's either ahead and draintank 1v3ing his way to a solocarry victory, or he falls behind and isn't strong enough to actually survive fights so he just becomes a fearbot.

: @Riot - The SG Ahri Animation, the stories...
I'd honestly love more stuff about the SG AU. Non-canon events that have a lot of lore to them are always fun and this particular one is really appealing as it fits into the "being a magical girl actually sucks a lot" deconstruction that made Madoka so endlessly popular. On that note, there's a lot of ideas that aren't fully fleshed out or are left vague; like what exactly it means by Guardians being destined to quickly "burn out." There's so much more to be explored with this AU idea and it'd be a shame if they never went through with it.
: So why are we basically handing Ahri the Star Guardian skin line despite Lux being the original?
My issue is they gave the skin line it's own lore, and then retconned it a year later purely so they could make a more popular Champion the "main character." It was always Lux's line, but Ahri is team leader now based solely on popularity.

And 10k of that damage was _true_ damage. Fair.

Most of these are below 1000g-efficient. IE for example: 30 AD is 700g worth of stats, not 1k. Rushing these early was putting people behind, and we're in a snowball meta, so putting yourself 1-2 kills worth of gold down deliberately is asking to lose.

: Delete One Champion From League Of Legends
{{champion:67}} has been my answer to this question since i started playing 4 years ago (except that one period where it was fizz). Until she gets reworked, she always will be my answer. Her kit is bullshit from the ground up.
: Will Teemo ever get reworked into something good? He brings nothing to the team.
What he brings depends on what he builds; he's actually amazingly versatile. Raw AP Teemo has incredible map control with "3/4 your carries' hp" shrooms all over whatever area you want covered, on-hit Teemo is a secondary carry, providing mid-ranged mixed damage dps which is hard to itemize against. Tankmo is meh but pretty annoying to deal with. The most important thing though: we're in a meta where adcs as a class are busted, and multi-adc comps are pretty popular. Teemo has a _ranged point-and-click "fuck you adcs" button. _ On top of that, his play and win rates are both unremarkable. He's not op, but he isn't garbage either. He's arguably one of the most balanced champs right now.
: Akali is a "ball of stats" champion that should never be allowed to be good.
My biggest issue with her is that her "core identity" (Riot loves that term) is that she's a _sustain assassin._ She gets to be the strongest draintank in the game while also being hypermobile and oneshotting people. She's the assassin who gets to 100% ignore the "assassins are vulnerable to burst" rule.

: Why has Gragas's Body Slam hit box not been fixed yet?
It's not only unreasonably wide; it also counts as hitting _the entire distance of the dash behind him._ If you walk from behind to the spot where he was when he _started_ the dash as he's reaching the end, it will hit you. I've actually had this kill me while playing as Gragas because I was trying to use E to escape only to hit the person chasing me.

: Yes, but immortality and revival apply to all executes. Sure, cleanses can break it, but they are limited to Tryndamere and QSS. The ability to evade death on other executes is a lot higher, as shields and heals can influence them, as well as immunity and revival. Urgot's ult isn't bad, it takes skill to use. It doesn't need anything to change on it. You simply need to practice your skill shots and you'll see.

It doesn't need anything to change on it. You simply need to practice your skill shots and you'll see. Heals and shields _do_ affect it. They have to get down to 25% hp within the 3-second timer. Anything that keeps them above that threshold is valid against the execute. The number of times you'll successfully execute someone who wasn't already below the threshold when the bolt hit is basically nil, and again, that's assuming they don't just juke the incredibly telegraphed skillshot. This isn't an issue with my skill as a player, it's an issue with the ult having too little payoff for how unreasonably hard it is to utilize.
: Wasn't Tristana considred trash tier like a week ago?
No, she wasn't. She's been strong for at least a couple months.
: Are there? Most characters I know with executes don't operate on a %HP threshold for complete and unavoidable death. The other execute mechanics in the game deal more damage based on missing HP, but none of them are just "kill someone with 25% or less HP," regardless of their actual HP number or their resistance/armor. Anyone against Veigar or Garen, as examples, can survive if they're shielded, healed, etc. But against Urgot, none of that will save you if you're already being ripped into his loving embrace.

That would be true, but evidently the reel-in is coded as a cc effect and self-applied cleanses break you free of it. Not only that, but immortality and revival effects still apply. It's _supposed_ to be "complete and unavoidable death" but it really, really isn't. And that's why it's a bad ult. Unreliable projectile followed by an unreliable execute.
: Actually, yes, he has a few buffs coming in the next patch: Urgot [Context] "If you enter W with a target locked on, they'll stay locked on for the whole W." "E cast lockout following missed is being reduced by ~0.35 or something." Fear Beyond Death (R) slow duration increased from 3 to 4

I still think they should drop the lock-on mechanic or at least swap it from "you actually get to shoot your enemy instead of waste the whole spell on two minions" to a buff against the locked-on target.
: I think his R is perfect. It should be easy to dodge because it's a guaranteed execute if you hit someone below 25% HP. Note, that's percent, so it could be Zac with 1000/4000 HP left or Soraka with 200/800 HP left, it murders regardless of actual numbers or resistance/armor values.
