Espeically since sudden impact plus electrocute would do more damage. Basically aery can work but it's not at all better than electrocute. Aery is better on champs that reliably poke like ziggs etc.

It's not even about ego. It's about the fact that many people have crapped on jayce and in pro play he's kinda meh. YOu don't even know what you want nerfed on him you just are whining. It is about the fact that you can beat a Jayce as galio if you play the matchup right. You basically said you don't want to play the matchups that are hard for him because you don't like them. Thats not him being overpowered. Thats you being stubborn.
: I banned pantheon so i can have fun, they then first picked jayce.
Literally all it takes is one gank and you get screwed as Jayce lol. I've played too much Jayce to not know what screws me. Even a melee fighter can wreck you if you misplay by the smallest margin with basically no way back in the game. You have clearly never played Jayce against someone that knows what they are doing. Also, if he's so broken just play him.
: Stop Surrendering
If people threw as often as people claimed I wouldn't ff. But for every throw there are 4 games that people hard stomp you in. I have enough things in life to suffer through, I'm not turning my hobby into a chore unless its ranked and even then if we have horrible teamwork coordination and we are all unhappy better off getting a reset.

: Can we change nullifying orb to also block physical damage?
: As long as yasuo has his windwall he will be my go-to ban
My biggest problem with Yauso will always be that he is too gold efficeint by design. I can kill him twice in lane but if we both get bigger ticket items at around the same time he still scales with me. Especially since PD is cheap.
: Why are all ranged mages bursting me while invisible from the FoW?
TBH I've deleted a few people from FOW on Oriana before. FOW just lets you do it once you have enough damage on burst classes
: My favorite is when the try a walk out gank the enemy team just rambles away from and then start taking minion gold and xp. Even dumber when the say its a tax, because they don't understand they should be helping their laners get ahead instead of setting them back.

Even dumber when the say its a tax, because they don't understand they should be helping their laners get ahead instead of setting them back. I love when they get the kill and then smite your cannon too and call it tax. Or when you ping you're headed to a minion wave and they go clear it even though you're adc so you have to buy pickaxe instead of BF then the next team fight they die 4 seconds before you and plenty of people barely live which means had they not screwed you and let you get the minion wave the fight might have been totally different.

If i'm under tower with 10 minions and they are closer to their tower than ours and you go balls deep and die, I expect something for screwing me
: Actually, if the jungler dies to a laner and then avoids coming back to that lane, they are saving your team from them feeding that lane opponent more. Arguably it is the smart choice once they have realized that the laner is much stronger than them.

Arguably it is the smart choice once they have realized that the laner is much stronger than them. See, but all it really does, is ruin lane for the laner. They get stuck playing against a fed opponent while you do nothing.

Uh no, you forget we also lost our magic pen runes. Fun fact, magic pen runes if you ran all reds still didn't equal to the amount of resist people started with. In ye olde time people could start with 42 MR reduced to 34 if you ran spell pen. Currently you are right that they start at 30 but with the sheild key stone it actually is pretty clutch. That and sorcery tree is honestly mediocre on burst mage.
: Who goes into normal fucking draft and then complains about plays that you would't see in a ranked?
I always say, "at least it is not ranked." Granted, I usually want to practice for ranked so if it is too wild I think, "keep that ish in blinds."

: Why People Love Gigabyte Marines and Problems with Worlds
Honestly, when I didn't have personal stake in games it was a lot of fun to watch. This year's worlds was probably my favorite since season 4. Sometimes tanks were banned out and teams ran triple threat comps or vice versa. Not to mention the series SKT had in quarters and semis. As well as the WE vs C9 and Samsung series. The play ins stage gave us a chance to see more wildcard action and gave us a reason to watch it by adding in the major region third seed. I actually liked this worlds. Last year was only more fun because I was there for 3/4 of the quarterfinal sets and then I didn't even watch the rest after Rox vs SKT. This one was good. It actually seemed competitive this year even with NA choking week 2 I felt pretty satisfied as a viewer.

Lost MR runes only for us to lose spell pen runes which didn't even negate magic reist runes BTW.
: Have you listened to all of the conversations about this? I had the same gut response as you did at first, but I think overall it will be a good change all things considered. Aside from being a better viewer experience, it is still quite important to learn how to play Bo1's well, as this is still the primary first stage of tournaments. I have been further swayed by the Dive episode and other articles I've read.
Bo1 is not a better viewing experience. I'm not going to watch the teams i don't like play. All they did was decrease the odds of people changing their minds about teams.

Because plenty of people are taking the rune that literally tanks you rmagic damage if they get low anyway. And you still have less spell penetration than you did before

These are things we've known for a while now, but the new developers seem to be figuring that out for the 3rd fucking time. Riot buffs Jayces, guess what that means.

TBH I prefer playing Jayce mid to top and I wish they would balance him around that instead.
: Consider this Preseason the ultimate and final trial for the Balance Team
Split pushing still works though. It's been done in pro play countless times and won. Have you not heard casters say 1/4/0 and 1/3/1 which refers to lane assignments and execution. Dont get me wrong, team wide snowballing is an issue but I don't miss the days of people getting to spend all day top side and never helping their team and winning because we can't outduel trynd but we also can't let 4 people run totally free. Basically, even though its frustrating it is a healthier game than in season 3 where split pushing wasn't a team strategy and it was just some wanker doing it.
