: The Star guardian Zoe skin really lacks any villain features at all!
they kind of fucked zoe this year in the same way the fucked syndra before. If it helps, look at it as Zoes just trying to make friends, in an obsessive way, by making them part of her team. Shes obsessive, not evil. Thats what i was stuck on for so long. I hate that she didn't get thhe 1820 sure, but it is what it is. I agree she didn't fit the 'villian' theme. But shes one of the first star guardians, her original team is dead, so she hunts down new star guardians to join her, and shes become obsessed with the idea to the point where shes killing them just to have a team again.

: Do you use Sound Ques?
I'm glad to see someone has finally brought this up. Im not visually impaired per say, but had a bit of an accident when i was younger, so my left eye is a little slower than my right. All games i play i rely heavily on hearing the sound, so i know when/when not to react. I have a difficult time hearing some effects on certain champs/ but some skins like Divine sword Irelia, help me greatly because of the sharp noises.

: Yuumi is too easy to play and too hard to counter
She's getting nerfed in 9.16 :) Yuumi Q empowered damage decreased late; slow decreased; slow duration flattened; cooldown increased early. Yuumi's damage is too high for how reliable it is, especially when coupled with other high-damage bot lane partners. Q - Prowling Projectile EMPOWERED DAMAGE 50/95/140/185/230/275 ⇒ 50/85/120/155/190/225 SLOW 40/48/56/64/72/80% ⇒ 20/32/44/56/68/80% SLOW DURATION 1.25/1.35/1.45/1.55/1.65/1.75 seconds ⇒ 1.5 seconds COOLDOWN 11/10/9/8/7/6 seconds ⇒ 13.5/12/10.5/9/7.5/6 seconds
: Gonna have to agree with you on that. Although, keep in mind that the area below the borders' bottom edge would be obscured by other info anyway. Elderwood Ahri would be better as landscape, too. Portrait mode usually works fine because that's what most splashes are (especially the really ancient ones), but this one makes me want to turn my phone sideways even though I'm not on my phone.

You cant tell that Ahri is petting Hecarim now ): this is my biggest issue. The border just kills Nocturnes whole display because it just blocks out the siphon of the soul. Personally i think Vei looks cluttered/crammed in.

: Elderwood Yorick would have made more sense, you get to summon treants and put people in a bramble wall that grows. Then you someone some sort of tree spirit to fight for you as your ult. But it doesn't make sense because this new elderwood theme does not fit the theme of the original Hecarim skin at all. They could have called it "Mystic wood" and it would have worked except for Ahri having a skin.

Elderwood Hecarim wasn't released until November 2015. Colour pallette speaking, Ahri does fit in, albeit more tied to Elderwood Leblanc.

: how to cs mid game ?
Hi there, I play a lot of mid/bot as my main roles myself. for mid lane: laning phase will be pretty much be dictated by bot or top lane and will tell you where to cs. You will ideally switch with the WINNING lane, as they will have the gold/level advantage to pressure elsewhere. if bot lane wins: they should be rotating to your lane for pressure, you in turn will switch to bot. Youll still have dragon control regardless - at this point youll aggressively ward their side to prevent steals/contest. OR- you can stay mid, drop the tower quickly and move about. if top lane wins: youll stay mid, and ask your jungler/top to go rift, so they can drop it mid for you, then you can all go dragon/bot to secure the final tower. if your bot loses: you can still switch with bot, you're probably safer by yourself then the duo, if you play utility/dashes etc. if your top loses: they will probably stay top, but try and help them with the jungler present, then pressure your lane again.
: 9 times out of ten I find that improperly placed champions are at fault for inactivity. There's only so many Hex squares around each target, and if you overstock on Nonranged units (like a lot of assassins) many will wait for the front wave to die to move in to replace them. P.S. Some CC's are 4-5 seconds! Eternity in TFT terms. I do think we need a counter for THAT.

: Cursed Blade can reduce FOUR levels?!
it does say 'Attacks have a 20% chance to Reduce enemy's star level by 1' though it doesn't mention if it stops at 1 stack. try using a cursed blade shojin lucian- you can drop a play by two stars by just using his spell.
: Riot there's a reason we keep talking shit to you on boards instead of just leaving your game.
if we were given the option to get a refund for all the purchased skins, there would be literally no attachment to this game. 1) it puts people in bad moods 2) toxicity exists everywhere 3) its not fun anymore 4) no more LC$ ads to be bombarded.
: Irelia gets another skin eventhough she just had a skin.
world skins do not count towards skin release- they are chosen by the winners. Irelia's last skin was September 2018, while still under the 1 yr mark, this is pretty normal for 'popular' champs.

: You are completely wrong. Right now, even if Sylas kit has a great potential, it has a great room for counterplay. I hate going over with this each time someone tries to make him look more powerful than what he really is, but here we go. * He has a dash, yes his E1, but it is a **short** dash on a **moderated** CD for which he is **highly vulnerable to ganks early game**. * He has a shield, on E2, which requires you to first hit the ability correctly which has a **short hitbox** and secondly **carries you to enemy location**, the reason for which you don't want to use it in 50% situations past early game. * He has waveclear, which already **got nerfed**. * He has poke, true but again it is a skillshot with **short hitbox** completely avoidable if enemy players are above gold. * He has a stun, is this a bad joke? First it is not a stun, it is a **knockup** on E2 which lasts for **0.5s** and does close to no damage supposing you are able to hit your target (Did I mention his E2 has a short hitbox?) and you better pray that no enemies are around because as **it takes you to enemy location**, you may as well have commited sui__de. * He has healing, right which is really helpful when facing assasins that straight up **oneshot you** **before you can even heal**. What? Are you going to deny that **at this point in the game**? Specially on mid lane? * A pull, rig... Wait, what pull? (Riot's official page says... Pull: Any champion with an ability that brings the enemy closer to them) It is actually the other way around, **you are pulling yourself to enemy location** with E2. * He has the ability to use ultimates better? His R is actually **extremely situational**. If enemy team has really useful ults, then congratulations you may have some way of impacting teamfights late game with your R ~~that you wouldn't be able to do with the rest of your kit ~~, but if that is not the case and you face champions less ult dependant, then good luck having any impact late game. Sylas basically turns in a champion without ultimate. Have you heard of a **two-edged knife**? And you are even incorrect at the fact that he wasn't designed by CertainlyT. He was actually designed by Blake Smith also known as Squad5. As you see his kit has a little of everything which means he may have a lot of things but on short proportions. If he has a dash, it is a short dash on moderated CD. If he has CC, it has extremely short duration and requires you to travel to enemy location. If he has a shield, it is a risky shield. And so on. This perfectly complements with the fact that instead of having a 60% WinRate, he has 43% average WinRate. Before the nerfs, he basically turned most matchups into skillmatchups so if you are complaining about laning against him, you were probably the worse of the two players as you had varied ways to avoid his full combo and win against him. Now, after the nerfs, he looses hard in some matchups and turns others into skill matchups. So, maybe you would make a better use of that energy you use to complain daily on learning the patterns of the champion and the matchups. When to get near him and when not to.

its because he's inherently broken as a champion. This is the entire reason you find him fun. He has everything you could possibly want in a kit. **He has AOE, waveclear, poke. stun. slow, a dash, shield, healing, a passive that does damage because you landed something, a pull, and he has the ability to use ultimates BETTER than the champs they were designed for.** This is why he's so 'fun' to play because hes fail-safe and makes the enemy team miserable. Like most of certainly T's designs. Fun to play, extremely unfun to play against. Tell us again how fun he is when you're the one laning against him.

: My biggest problem with Qiyana is her W.
This seems to be an issue with the wizard and not the wand. Rock q, auto- tiamat, Rock q will clear and entire minion wave. unsure where her 'lack of wave clear' comes from in your mind. considering she can push the wave quite quickly. Are you trying to farm with elements other than Rock? Rock is your core element, it does more damage to weaker targets. Use that to your advantage.

: Quiyana
Its possible what you're seeing is related to how you are comboing with her. Empowered Water Q -> e- > auto (electrocute) -> W-> Empowered Earth Q should be more than enough to trade effectively if not kill. Or you can start with Ult, and its almost always a guaranteed kill on anyone less than 2k hp.
: Can we stop
I dont know if this would be possible with all the considerations you have to take into account. - Champion numbers - Itemization - Runes It'll just be too hard to balance everything at one time, even if everyone sees an adjustment. Youd see a lot of 'generalist' gameplay- this is what lead to an increase in Orianna, Taliyah and Syndra picks a while ago. Everyone was doing things so specifically, there was no one to do a decent job at everything, which is what teams needed. In addition- they seem to only care about balancing around pro play. We've received a very large number of patchnotes that specifically state "too overwhelming in pro play" so they nerf the shit out of everything of that champ except the 0.00001% that is pro. This game is one big "yikes" lately.

Wasnt Qiyana meant to be a Bowsette rendition? It looks really nice IMO, the chromas for it are exceptionally well done too.

: Oh boy, got a hextech chest for my S rank game!
Its kind of sad we get these 'fake' rewards. As someone who also owns every champ its a waste of time for me to try and get the skin shard etc i want through chests. They introduced lootboxes with a 'promise of skins' for two reasons 1) blow a ton of money buying lootboxes for a chance to get something good. 2) get so fed up with skin shards, we just outright buy the skin.
: Is Quiyana even a damn jungler?
Shes an unintended jungler, in the same way you can have Nasus, Poppy, Sion, Camille and Ekko jungle.

: "We don't pick favorites for skins"
: HOLD ON A SECOND RIOT
You're misinterpreting her lines. When she says "Your magic is primative" She means- your spells are basic, they're not of good quality/ not complex for a mage. "Did you buy that at a discount?" She knows what a discount is, shes insulting your status as a person by stating "You cant afford regular priced items?"
Lari (EUNE)
: How to get to Diamond?
watch the minimap, know tells of where the jungler is. a good sign is level 1- does the enemy top laner crash at the same time as the minion wave? Theyre on the opposite side of the map.
: Sylas is way to over loaded
his passive needs a god damn cooldown tied to it, theres no need for this champ to get Katarinas W on every single ability.
