: Do we really need new champs with full mobility, like seriously, look at 15 last champs
Movement abilities aren't even the biggest issue. Most of the champs you listed are either doing fine, or are bad due to multiple issues like Ivern/Mordekaiser (Plus Ivern has a dash if he lands Q). Also Pyke has 2 CC abilities.

: Why do you not pre-record voice lines for future interactions?
Unlike Blizzard, Riot doesn’t know who they’re going to make multiple years in advance. In HOTS, all the characters are pre determined since they already exist in different games. League champs evolve and change constantly throughout development, so if Riot recorded a line for a champ early, that quote may not make sense at all when that champ finally releases.

: How will Pyke interact with Stoneplate? (And why it's important)
I saw a Reddit comment that said that stone plate actually did give him more HP instead of more AD for the duration. Not confirmed, but I don’t think someone would lie about that for no reason.
Zerenza (NA)
: Pyke's Passive Scaling
Riot has said that his health scaling will be “unfavorable” so I’d imagine that it wouldn’t be gold efficient.
: Pyke isn't a support like I hoped he would be
Keep in mind that his waveclear/jungle clear is terrible. His Q is a hook, which means it has a longer cooldown, and his E probably doesn’t do much damage and require you to run through the entire wave and use up your mobility.
: The problem I have with Pyke as a Support main
Let's see what his damage numbers/scaling is before we make judgments. According to Riot, Duskblade and Ghostblade are good on him, so he must do some a good amount of damage. These are higher gold items than supports can usually afford, but his ultimate will hopefully help him get more than most supports. Overall, Yes, he probably will be less reliable and more feast/famine than most supports, but I don't think it'll be as bad as you think. Let's wait and see.
: eh doesnt matter if you have access to pbe LOL
It does if you want to play actual games and not on a laggy server that goes down for maintenance every update for hours. And the majority of the population is silver/bronze, so the games are easy.
Pika Fox (NA)
: Malph isnt a tank either. The community just plays him like one and focus too much on his R. Theres a reason dual as boots malph was a strong 1v1 pick back in the day.
People focus on his R because that's all he's really good for against players who know what they're doing. Most tanks are good duelists, and Malph can be good in 1v1s, but he still builds full tank and focus's on engaging with his ult.

: Pyke has to be an assassin and this has to be a joke.
Riot doesn't add assassins anymore because they're almost always toxic and annoying to play against.

“Riven” “Only played by mains” Pick one
: I understand WHAT something is, but I don't understand WHEN to do it
A good thing to focus on is what your opponent can do at any moment. Say you’re laning against a Zed. If you go to trade with him before level 3, you can probably win every time due to his low range and damage without shadow. You can harass him and keep him from getting any CS until he hits level 3. At that point, you have to consider what he can do with his shadow. If you go in for a trade with your Q, he will probably use his shadow and combo to out damage you. So instead, you should focus on pushing lane and force him to use his abilities on waveclear. If he uses his shadow to clear minions, you have 22 seconds to abuse him just like you could at level 2. Since he doesn’t have access to his main mobility and damage source, you might be able to catch him in a W and full combo for the kill or force a flash. When his W is back up, play more defensively and try to get him to use it again and be prepared in case he engages on you. Obviously this differs from champ to champ, but most matchups will have some sort of vulnerability to play around. Fizz E, LB W, Zed W, or most mages main damage abilities. If you can exploit these and keep track of cool downs, you’ll be more able to get kills/push towers/dragon/whatever.
BBW Chaser (EUNE)
: Does Riot trolling at this point? they are gonna release the new I.E without nerfing Yasuo and Trynd
Do some research before you post 1. Yasuo will hit max crit in the same amount of items as before, except now there’s no crit in the buildpath or full version of IE, which means it’ll take even longer for him to reach 100% 2. The true damage on IE is multiplicative. Meaning that with Conq, it’ll reach 36% true damage. 3. Because of the removed crit damage on IE, it’ll do less damage if you have less than 125 armor. I can’t speak for tryndamere as I haven’t played PBE recently, but I do know that the PBE is a terrible place to judge balance. Most of the players are around silver level, and Trynd is a good low elo stomper.

Specifically for a set amount of attacks, like Jayce’s AS steroid.
: Can Diana get her first legendary skin?
Just because a champion is old doesn't mean they need a legendary, it's mostly based on popularity.

You can't get the package every 10 seconds. I think the OP is refering to regular Valkyrie being Rumble ult and not the package. That and the way Rumble ult is cast is much different and imo a lot safer.
Just checked the wiki, for some reason I thought his non package dash didn't leave a trail. Whoops.

Not even mechanically. You can't get the package every 10 seconds.

She's very good at punishing mistakes and picking off enemies out of position. She seems broken to people who don't know how to play against her.

: even pros are abusing swain, because his ult is stupidly broken. You need to listen and pay attention, I don't care about the rest of his kit, but his ult needs to be deleted or reworked entirely, everyone knows it, except apparently you. This has nothing to do with my champion picks, my elo or anything else because I assure you i'm far more knowledgeable than you are, so calm down, upvote and move along.
Ah yes, the classic “fuck you, I’m right and you’re wrong”. Don’t post on the boards if you aren’t ready to actually discuss instead of being an asshole.

: @Riot Why is the Death Recap that's been broken for years not being fixed or reworked?
Sometimes seemingly simple things can require a lot of effort to fix due to the problems being deep in the code connected with a ton of things. I sure if Riot really wanted to fix it, they could, but it’s really not worth the time and effort it would take.
: I didn't think about that, really. I always assumed it was something with Illaoi, but you could be right. Good thinking.
Looking at the design for Illaoi's tentacles, it's almost 100% Illaoi's.

Only the top 2% of all players, and 1% of that is D5 alone.
: Is league worth getting back into?
Keep in mind that when you go to online forums for a game, what you see is a minority of the game’s players, usually players who come here to criticize the game. All I can recommend is to just try playing again and see if you like it.

I would also not say that this is a "colossal failure" either because for the first time in a while there has been a que for login. I would just be patient. are you guys joking ? go look on twitch right now ... literally every single pro player but one got into the beta .... there's no way that's a coincidence. Meteos is the only big name player on twitch right now that is not in the beta. Every single other player is in it .... that cannot just be luck.
They let pro players in because they're used to tournaments and high level competitive environments, so they are able to provide better feedback and criticism of the mode. If anything, this is a good thing because it means the mode will be better when it releases for everyone.

iV0lt4GE (EUW)
: @RiotRepetoir, Midseason is coming! What are the current plans and how is it coming along?
The main goal is to allow more champions to have multiple roles, and that includes ADCs. Instead of just having an ADC and a support bot lane, Riot wants to let some other types of champs like mages or some melees go bot. I think they'll also try to mix up the jungle a bit and and open it up to more champs.
AmazoX (EUW)
: Kai'Sai over-sexualized or not, isn't the problem for me.
Kai’sa was never actually in the void, just caves near void portals. She survived while fighting and living off of the small void creatures that went through the portals, but she was never directly exposed to the void directly like Kass or Malz. Any void corruption that would’ve happened was prevented by her void suit. Not saying her character is perfect, and I agree on her personality being too boring, but there is a reason why she wasn’t 100% fucked up like other void humanoids.
dome025 (EUW)
: What is Kindred supposed to be?
Technically, Kindred may not actually exist, or could just be a spirit only the victim can see. Kind of like the "light" that people see when they're about to die. It's not physically there, but to the person experiencing it, it seems real (Essentially a hallucination). The dying person would see Lamb and Wolf and either accept their death and go peacefully, or attempt to escape it. If they escape, it just means it wasn't their time to die yet (Ex: Gangplank). This would also explain the weird ending of the short story with the audience being full of Kindred masks.
: The Frostblade skin. New and improved.
"This needs way more attention" I think having multiple front page posts on the boards and Reddit is enough attention.

Champions aren’t on that schedule. Only reworks.
: @Riot Since the Precision Tree has 4 main runes, can we expect more runes for other Rune Trees?
I don’t think it’s a specific goal. I remember Riot saying it’s possible that they could have 5 keystones in one tree, while only having 3 in others if it worked out for balance. So basically they’ll make more as they need them, but won’t go out of their way just to make it even.
: Except it's on a what? 20 second cool down? So every time I go in for a trade again, it'll be right back up!
Bait her into activating the passive, then disengage and go back in when it’s down. Most champions don’t rely on 16 second cooldowns to trade in lane, and if they do, just don’t use those skills until her shield expires.
Azadethe (NA)
: No she can't. Read the skill: W: DEFIANT DANCE First Cast: Irelia begins charging her blades, losing the ability to move or attack but gaining significant damage reduction for a brief period. This channel can’t be interrupted. Second Cast: Irelia lashes out with her blades, dealing physical damage in a line. The damage increases as Irelia charges. Cannot be interrupted = CC does not work until after it's over. You can't dodge her stun given its move speed if applied correctly. She can recast as soon as the second blade is sent, and they move fast. And there is a slow. It's on her massive ult. 60% slow and Disarm if you attempt to escape through her daggers. Which you pretty much have to, because the only way OUT is where Irelia is. You either have to face her, or you will just die.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugFf4tvXJ4I&feature=youtu.be&t=6m51s The W damage reduction does not stop when she is CCed, but it still affects her. The skill description doesn't say she's unstoppable, but simply that the W will continue if she is CCed.
Yenn (NA)
: I can't wait for my immobile casters to be parried and dived by Irelia with zero counter play
She can still be CCed during her W unlike Flora’s parry, but the ability continues while she is stunned. And you can also dodge her stun, which is way better than having to hurt yourself in lane to avoid it. No more slow either.

Well shit, i'm a fraud
: Kayn didn't need buffs.
Kayn was (Technically still is until tomorrow) one of the best users of Duskblade in the game because of his ult and E being able to refresh it. Overall it's probably a nerf to SA form, but it's straight buffs to Darkin. I wouldn't be surprised if Riot nerfed his Darkin form soon.
: ARAM should show character abilities.
Can you actually check your abilities in normal draft? As far as I know it’s impossible, but maybe I’m just blind.
: He was recently reworked (under 2 years ago) why would you want another he's an amazing champ as is right now.
Riot has said that they aren’t happy with his rework, specifically the spirit sword mechanic, and he has been a problematic champion to balance for pro play. I don’t think he’s a very high priority for a rework, but he’s definitely not an amazing design.
: @reav3 Next Champion Roadmap
It’ll probably come out a few days after Irelia is released, but there’s no confirmation yet.
