: Yet if it was an item marksmans would just buy it and snowball even harder. {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
There's always this 'person' in every thread who jumps to conclusions that are solved in the OP
: If that was the case, then Mordekaiser wouldnt have his highest win rate as an ADC.
With a sample size of 4% of total games? Compared to Top Lanes sample size of 75% What this data actually shows is most people _don't_ play Mordekaiser botlane. Dedicated Mordekaiser mains can explain the technicalities they're exploiting in organized play that cannot be achieved otherwise, the same way people use other off meta strats like Yi & Kayle Top Lane. I don't know if LoG's has had the same problem as opgg where it also dropped matches it couldn't categorize accurately leading to inflated and/or incorrect representations.
: Taric's a king at fighting alongside juggernauts and other CC machines. On health stackers his W will give them an extra 500-ish health every few seconds, and the stun link helps them both stick to targets. If him and a tank stick together and keep his Bravado procs going they become borderline unkillable. Me and a friend love duoing with Taric/Olaf, nothing escapes :P
There are a few duos like this that are legit strong, like Darius + Leona/Braum but it is still not considered meta to go without a marksmen bot lane because those same abilities help marksmen just as much if not probably more.
: not like lulu's ult exists for the main purpose of turning every assassin/diver into a tank ;-)
This also allows marksmen to be tanks too, so why would you choose something with inferior damage output?
: Blitzcrank and Thresh are both very good with any ADC. Yasuo and Mordekaiser included. Its called heavy engage. Thresh can not only pull enemies closer, but also allies. He hard counters jumps and dashes with his E, and if your on top of an enemy..... say hello to a 99% slow ultimate.
If it works with any ADC then you always choose marksmen, which is the point I'm making to have a support that focuses purely on melee synergy.

: he's fun. i wish he wasn't so trash. His q and E are just so fucking bad to me. IDK man. I really try to make him work because i like his general look and what not. But i just can't get past how shitty he is in comparison to other tanks that completely out perform him. If i played norms a crap ton i would probably main him but he's definitely not a good champ for ranked.
I don't know if he's trash, he's got a lot going for him, maybe I need more time to understand his flaws a bit more, since I'm still just screwing around with his build.

: Exactly.
It's not a good thing lmao, it's actually pretty terrible xD If their stats and items have too much synergy they become pick/ban because there's no counterplay to empowered autos. Riot plays favorites with who gets to not be trash if you're an old champ with an old kit due to lcs. A lot of newer more well rounded champs will still get passed up for stat sticks that are allowed to have a power curve beyond logical means. Nasus was garbage before on purpose and buffing him doesn't solve his problems his kit is too outdated. All old champs need a Warwick type update so they have a kit that can be feasibly balanced.
: The issue that OP is addressing is that Vanguards can only consistently find success when played and built as Wardens.
Let's not forget how after vanguards juggernauts are also trash without building like a warden also.
: You realize that, simplified to that level, MOST champions sound like that.
There's a lot of old champs that are balanced around binary damage.

Greg's been pretty open about how there's very little upward movement for maturing staff there, the current senior staff rarely introduce fresh blood at their rank so you get more of the same views echoing for better or worse (mostly worse), look what happened to Diablo and then they took the worst elements of it and put it in World of Warcraft. Though it's not like things will change, their fan base is tenaciously loyal, it's uncanny at times.

: Explaining why ADC is not as broken as everyone thinks.
Heavy right click champs have been out of control since the surge in damage creep (that has not stopped) since keystones were introduced. ADC's get a bad wrap because they are meant to scale, a lot of their damage delivery on heavy right click kits have no real counterplay other than positioning and death, continuing to flourish ever more rapidly with item buffs. {{item:3193}} and items like it are in response to the arms race of damage creep, do you see what happens to tanks outside of its active? It shouldn't exist but neither should the levels of right click damage that exist right now as well. But that's the direction Riot is sailing so tough shit to the community.

Advanced self improving AI, from the creators of 180+ Mordekaiser bugs. I mean TBF self teaching AI is actually one of the easiest AI's to build, the weakness of them is how many runs they have to go through before they start to actually progress and learn. The real issue with learning AI in games is that they tend to be pretty anti fun. For example if they have to dodge skillshots long enough they will eventually learn to dodge every skillshot possible w/o error. It is only by locking them into a situation where they have to get hit that you could beat a learning AI that has had enough time to practice. In theory even then it may not be possible as eventually those programs would get to the point of predicting all possible situations far enough into the future that when avoiding skillshots they would always try and place themselves in a place where they wont get backed into a corner for example. Eventually learning AI does reach the point where humans can't beat them in a purely skill based challenge. It is only through raw stat checking (Example being going up and autoattacking it to death faster than it can kill you) that humans can trump learning AI in skill challenges, especially if we are looking at an activity as simple as two targets shooting skillshots at each other. AI in games can be hard because you have to make it dumb enough for humans to challenge it and for it to make mistakes. There is a reason learning AI is used very sparingly in games, and usually it is used in a way that is not directly attached to gameplay. In fact the majority of learning AI used in game development is no longer a learning AI in the final version of the game. Example: Learning AI can be used to teach models equipped with fake muscles how to walk, and that can be used to create realistic walk cycles. However the learning AI is long since removed by the time the game is actually released. It is instead used in the production stage because learning AI doesn't tend to work well with games. So while it probably wouldn't be that hard to implement, it wouldn't be very satisfying as it would take a completely unpredictable amount of time before it started to act with even a semblance of intelligence, and at that point they tend to hit frustrating levels shortly afterwards.
[You're not wrong](https://www.engadget.com/2017/08/12/ai-beats-top-dota-2-players/) I did see an interview with how much the players learned from losing to the AI, it employed tactics they hadn't experienced even though they knew it was possible, it developed their foresight in ways they weren't capable of achieving at a rate against human participants.

: The way Vayne needs to be balanced:
This is a very well thought out and constructive post, I'm afraid it's not nerfy or buffy enough to pit opinions against each other in a king of the hill battle of attrition for internet points. In the future use more buzz words like "certified garbage", "outrageous", "mental division" and if you're looking for some fun try "bamboozlin'" and or "hornswogglin", they're very popular with dogs. The apes that visits these boards are visual creatures, use key buzz words to trigger their rudimentary hippocampus nodules or better yet use crudely drawn pictures to better facilitate their simple minds. Best of luck in the future!
