: What if we gave Akali the Azir treatment?
Azir treatment? You mean like how Azir got completely gutted and now is considered one of the worst solo queue mid laners? You mean how Azir no longer can be played without being completely shit on? 7 times out of 10? Hell no.
: Depends on her runes :). I often Phase Rush her, and I guarantee I can get away a second time.
But running PR is sub optimal as it gives her the loss of damage that she needs early on to snowball

: Yeah, but the amount of assassins with free, or at the very least easy, escapes is through the roof.
Honestly I was gonna reply with an angry statement about how that's not true (assassin main here) but then i realized that for the most part, many assassins have a lot of escapes. Which is what assassins need if they dive a team

To have a bad clear. There's a reason that the above mentioned champs out jungle you. Because they aren't tanks. They deal damage. If a tank had the damage of the Graves, then he would be pick or ban. Tanks shouldn't clear at the rate of a power farmer. They're supposed to scale and become cc bots. You're probably the guy who complains about how broken Xin is that he can fight you level 2 and win. ok here is the thing. A damage dealer deals Damage (but isnt tanky) A tank is tanky (but dont deal dmage) So its 1:1 right? DD has his strength and Tank has his strength. Question: Is the strength to to be tanky worth more than being a DD? Otherwiese i dont get the fact that DDs are rewarded with better clear. Why should tanks earn less money? The class isnt stronger or something so they would deserve a punishment. I understand that DDs have stronger AAs but you could buf Cinderhulk against Monsters so tanks have a better clearing speed.
Except that giving tanks better clear speed is extremely counterintuitive. The point of a tank is to be weak early so that they scale hard late. yes the strength to be tanky is worth a lot more than a DD. You can have 5 DDs on your team, but if the enemy team has 2 tanks to support their DDs, you will always lose. Tanks SHOULD earn less money because their items are less expensive. DD's also don't scale well while tanks do scale, often very well. If you look at an assassin jungle such as Kha vs a tank such as Rammus. Early, Kha will destroy the Rammus, but late game, rammus steamrolls the Kha.
: I'm so glad this is being talked about. Sick of playing second fiddle to the Xins and Khas of the world for picking Malphite or Amumu.
You realize that Amumu and Malph both shit on Xin and Kha late game right in teamfights?

: Agreed It's way harder to farm as a tank Jungler than let's say Graves or Udyr or Nocturne. They outjungle me SO hard every game. I need AGES for camps and they go through it like warm butter. Delete them in 3-4 seconds.

: I had a Lux game where I was 11-2, couldn't carry my team. Another game where I was 7-2 Fiora, still couldn't make a big enough impact. Meh. I don't really care so much for this game anymore, it's just one of those things you play when you have nothing better to do, not because you're actually excited to get into a game.
None of those champs are carry champions though. Try being 14-2 on Yi or 13-5 on Yasuo. Ever played as Kai'sa and gone 9-3? These champs can carry hard. Fiora is a splitpusher and Lux is an immobile mage with relatively high cds.

Yeah, I think that's what I need to eventually get into my head.

I tend to get more angry and lose my temper more quickly. I no longer enjoy reading books or spending time with my family as much. I also used to be able to stop myself from gaming at any time. Now I can't. Before, I could say, "I'll play for 2 hours, then do some homework." And I could. Now I say that for league and can't stop after just 2 hours. And for some reason, I don't really enjoy League that much, but I still play it and can't stop. It's also made me a lot more introverted now. I hate the thought of being away from being able to play League. Because of this, I've stopped wanting to go on trips that usually would have excited me. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for quitting League? Play Dungeon Fighter Online and get good at the PVP aspect of it. Once you start having some satisfying wins that aren't attributed to rank, just the enjoyment of the battle, you'll be able to step away easily. It's rank that drives player addiction, the need to obtain proof that you are good at the game. I promise you, you don't need proof. You don't need some extra boarder, you don't need a fancy color. You've put in the hours. Sure, some people put in more hours and are a little better, but are you really trying to be better than them? Go watch a movie and read a book. League'll still be here. {{sticker:sona-playing}}
