: AP Carries, AP assassins and AP fighters all use the same items....
Riot tried and tried to make innovative item options for AP. Everyone ends up going back to sticking 1 best item, which changes over time. Maybe what mages really need after all, is just more scaling so their spells do more. Not like mages actually have vastly diversified playstyles among champions.
: Maybe people DIDN'T want bot lane to be addressed?
I'm pretty sure it's just some louder ADC mains bitching about stuff, because I'm still seeing the consensus of how much people were *so* happy that ADCs were long gone. Enchanters got nerfed too because most people think they're so fucking evil, so now assassins are running amok because there's no one left to save those *poor* mage mains. Or the classic "too much damage" and people bitching about the bigger pictures.

: Getting one shot against assassins versus getting one shot against mages
Supports can't peel from mages, but can from assassins. You can see assassins as they kill you, as bullshit as this sounds, but mages have abilities to kill you offscreen. I know assassins are running amok right now ~~because people begged for enchanter nerfs and now nothing is left to save you guys~~, but come on, don't be this biased.

I came here expecting half assed r63 half naked ladies and fully clothed dudes who were originally skimpy ladies. I was wrong and I'm not even mad.
: Tooltips Update
I understood what the icons meant, but for new and returning (and I mean players who had taken months breaks) players, it could be misleading into thinking that it only adds 1.1 and 0.4 damage from far away. Would adding a little "x" be weird to others? Adding the x shows some more clarity that it is some ratio, instead of straight up added numbers that people could get confused over.

Even better when someone says season 4 was the start of "kill lane or bust" botlane and they get socked for hating on the past. Or did no one remember the season 3 ward bots where buying real items was considered trolling? Oh wait, of course not, the past certainly doesn't have bullshit.

: the game is the worst it's ever been by far, no one but assassin mains is refuting it they gave the bronze kids who complained what they wanted and made it more of a team game, and removed solo carry ability, uber nerfed turrets etc, so now it's just a battle of who has the worst player on their team, or who ragequit afk'd

Funnily enough, I see people tryhard in normals more than people do in my soloQ games. I remembered why I prefer soloQ over normals/with friends mainly because I actually want to try my best, and make winning actually feel worth and fair because I am playing with and against people in my skill level. Losing used to not feel as bad as I still get plenty of entertainment, but now it just feels *super* bad because games were either stompy or were decided singlehandedly by one or two people. You are right, though, competitive does do more harm than good, which is why I decided to think of my own build, use my own strats, and win from there. But I guess it wouldn't add up since soloQ is designated for straight-up tryharding.

DeusVult (NA)
: Pyke is the only assassin that actually works as a balanced assassin
He's "healthier" than most assassins because you don't have to rely on racking kills *just* to stay relevant. Sharing gold is quite a big deal here.
: The reasons of why high damage metas are a bad thing for the community.
You forgot the "one mistake and everything is over" thing, where it would legit increase the chances of ragequitting. Having high damage metas amplifies that.
: Is playing with unlocked camera important??????
I remember seeing a few high elo streamers that play locked or semi-locked cameras, and even a few friends that got to mid diamond by playing mostly locked. It all boils down to preference, but personally I like locked (and unlock whenever I need to *see* anything else going on in the game) because I'm used to platformers that moves the camera with the player.
: Am I the only one who thinks that league is in a pretty good state right now and also not dying?
Damn, you really *need* to split your thread apart into paragraphs. On the other hand, you have to keep in mind that most people who come to the forums are people who have issues with the game. That group of people may not be the same people, as the meta changes every 2 weeks. Because of that, it always *looks* like there's "a lot of people" being unsatisfied with the game, when the vast majority are off playing the game.
: Botlane=/=ADC. The sooner the playerbase realizes this, the better.
If people advocate this much for playing non-ADCs botlane, then they should be the ones doing it, instead of asking ADC mains to change champion pools overnight.
saltran (EUW)
: Marksman are not mandatory
It's like they expected ADC mains to magically *stop* playing ADCs. It's Boards, we get people here thinking that just because certain posters don't like playing ADCs, "no one" enjoys it and expected all those ADC mains to switch entire champion pools overnight. But better keep making dozens of threads demanding more nerfs because they're not completely gone from the game.
: Marksmen are still mandatory
"Support main" meanwhile top champs are Kayle, Fiddle, Shaco, and mostly junglers.
: Does anyone here love league anymore?
I want to. I really do. Each time I tell myself I'm going to rank/do quests again I just couldn't bring myself to. But the only thing I can try doing is check ff@20 for the new skins and work on an ongoing fanfiction/comic that I've been doing so for a year now. Knowing that the skins team will probably just keep on focusing popular champs for the sake of "design" instead of giving themes to champs that really *needed* them also adds even more disappointment. Even AFKing in MMOs by staring at people is more intuitive and entertaining than playing a single game of LoL at this point.

Notice that in the Video Darius and Garen use their ults on the warriors, and it looks good, because they have the same size of a regular human champ. B) If they make smaller models for the warriors in order to avoid confusion beteeen them and the champs, then, they would look really bad. That is what happened to the older beta minions. So, those "minions" only work in videos, not for actual gameplay.
Imagine minions being bigger than yordles. Then people would mistake yordle champions as minions and that's pretty racist... oh wait.
: The 1/4 level 6 brand misses his skillshots then presses ER ignite on me for 900 damage
A mage main bitching about a mage being problematic? How the tables have turned. :^) But seriously though, your best bet is to run him over before he could run you over.
: I love to theory craft and try odd things, but most people get mad if you try anything they didn't see a pro do first.
Or just be below a certain rank and people will dismiss you automatically. Even if the theory has been true and wasn't known of till today.
: How Anti-Board Threads Work
If that's really the case then anti-ADC/pro-mage threads won't be massively upvoted, even if it is no means reasonable. Right now when ADCs complain about the current state of the game, I still don't see such threads massively upvoted as much as mage/bruiser threads do.
: Is the new meta actually fun or terrible?
I'm okay with not having to support ADCs every game. But I'm not okay with how short the games are right now. Been telling myself to come back to play League, still couldn't think of a reason or motivation. I probably just got bored with League or something.

I don't get why people actually want to become onetricks when most of the time it limits the crap out of people's playstyles and it often turned soloQ champ select to shit. If anything, champion choices actually *limits* your ability to climb once you get past ~d3. And this is coming from a onetrick myself who are also friends with other onetricks.

: I think support is dead too. Support now think that adc are trolling (aka apc/bruiser as adc) and they wanna take something weird because they dislike their carry even is fairly strong. There is only a few list of adc that work because they can still bully the enemy such as lucian or draven or adc that doesn't realy on late game build ezreal or kai'sa. Other adc feel weak and can be oneshotted even into late game.
One time this patch someone went Karma + Lulu double utility botlane in pro play. If anything, Lulu is played more as a solo laner now, but still is seen in a few support games.
: Okay, is anyone playing bot lane anymore?
I came here expecting people telling that it is "perfectly okay" because ADCs are actually bad now. At least ones that rely on crit and such. Oh wait... they're too happy playing the game right now. Boards want ADCs out of "being mandatory" and they got what they wanted. :^)
