: For some reason Irelia's new frostblade splash art has been growing on me.
: "If It Looks Stupid, But Works, It Wasn't Stupid."
there's a reason I go {{item:3157}} on {{champion:122}} quite often against teams with lots of displacement CC because aside from the style points of gold-dunking people, his ult can be cancelled by displacement CC, but if you zhonyas at the start of the cast, you can't be displaced anymore and the spell will still go through, I once dodged an orianna ultimate with it, killing her instead of being pulled away, and ended up getting a triple kill in that fight, good times!

: Japanese Voices For Champions?
I can't stand Japanese voice acting in general, I consider most of the voices used in anime to be generic, underwhelming and lacking effort in bringing the characters to life... and I absolutely LOVE the way most of the Japanese LOL voices were done (Ziggs and lulu were the ones who impressed me the most as I recall) also I've never seen riot actually ban someone for using a 3rd party program that doesn't affect gameplay whatsoever (like the old replay programs or custom skins), but I respect the decision to be careful about it regardless so yes I think that we should be able to select in-game voices regardless of region (I want that russian Aatrox voice... or that Italian Renekton!)
: I main {{champion:41}} my counters are {{champion:266}} {{champion:84}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:69}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:36}}{{champion:39}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:54}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:516}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:134}} {{champion:103}} {{champion:67}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:238}}

If you are more slanted to magic damage, you're going to be adaptively getting AP. This is why the tanks get AP. Almost all of the support tanks deal tons of magic damage, and the majority of them have AP scaling in their kits too, while almost none of them have AD scaling. Therefore, while you don't hit harder with autos, having more AP will benefit you in the long run because it will help your abilities scale. Same goes true for Bard and Lulu. No, this is not how it works (except for the fact that adaptive is based on your scaling, which is the problem). AP does not benefit you more over time (in the examples i gave). Scalings do not go up (if anything flat ap gets WEAKER once base damage goes up). If you do 55 more damage with ad at lvl 3 or 6, and only 21 more with ap, then AD is simply superior. Exceptions are only when your playstyle changes (for example, as lulu you're more ability focused lategame than early) (edit: yes, i'm aware ap scales when cd's go down) +starting stats are for, guess what, early game. If you want ap early on leo, you are probably terrible. ps: i use leo as example because she's the prime example for wanting AD, despite having AP scaling
Adaptive actually gives you more of the stat you have the most of, bonus AD or AP... otherwise I can'T explain how I ended up getting over 150AP on Darius with Zhonyas Hourglass as my only AP Item and Maw as my only AD item during the game where I found out about it thanks to gathering storm
Rioter Comments
: Fair - this is our first go round doing something like the essence emporium. We're planning on bringing it back in the future, so knowing what other kinds of things people would like to see is helpful!
it sure felt good to spend 50k on a gemstone for an extra chest and key only to realise that chests are now worthless as I got a teemo emote from it (and the first thing I did when these things were put in the game is remove the thumbs up from my options because I don't want to use these pointless things)
: This Blue Essence Shop is COMPLETE SHIT
Went with Option 7... Got a Teemo emote... alright I get it... Riot doesn't want me playing their game anymore...
AD Yuumi (NA)
: We could certainly nerf Trist jump to be interrupted by CC but that would likely make the spell feel pretty awful to use, the vast majority of dashes in our game cannot be canceled in that way and I'm not sure Trist's W should be uniquely bad in that regard considering it has a .5 second cast time. We could lower the cast time (or remove it completely), but that would likely make her mobility overall STRONGER. Copy pasting my response to a recent reddit thread on the subject of Trist and buffering below: > This is due to cast-time buffering. To compensate for things like network lag, spells in League that have cast times are favored to go off (even if you are stunned during said cast time). This does create some frustrating experiences where you land your hook on Trist and she just bounces out of it, but on the flip side, if the spell were instant, that hook would have never landed in the first place. > Trist's W is strong to be sure, but it having a cast time makes it a good degree weaker. Better she's stunned after jumping away from you than never stunned at all. > > To get into what I mean by "network lag compensation," imagine you're playing against Riven (who has an instant stun with no cast time, enabling it to preempt your cast times) and Annie (who's Q stuns after a travel time). If you push Q at the same time Annie does, both of your spells will go off, as her stun takes a bit to reach you. If you push Q at the same time as Riven stun, it's very possible that (based on latency) Riven's stun will go off slightly before your spell. If this happens, not only will you be stunned, but you will be left wondering why your spell didn't go off. You pushed the button when you weren't stunned, and yet the spell failed to cast. Makes the game feel clunky and unresponsive, and at times will cause players to do things they don't want to (like continue running into a fight after the stun wears off because they thought they had cast their dash/ult/fight turner which would have made them stop for a cast time and change their trajectory). > > These types of interactions are one of the reasons silences (especially instant ones like Raka E) feel so bad in our game. They have poor feedback that something has happened, and so players attempt to cast their spells, don't get a result, run places they don't want since there was no cast time to stop them, and then come out of it feeling like the game is laggy and unresponsive. Another question we could ask, in a hypothetical world where Trist feels oppressive, is: What should be true about the rest of Trist's kit given she has such a powerful W.
make the .5sec cast time a 'channel time' instead, so if she gets hit by CC during the channel, she never jumps as it stands tristana has long range, high DPS with Q,high mobility with W, high burst with E active, high objective taking power with E active, high pushing power with E passive and high safety with Ult knockback... you can't allow a champion to have all of this combined, you need to remove either the DPS, the burst, the mobility or the self peel... otherwise she has no weaknesses for other champions to exploit
: Oh for sure. I'd expect that it's be an optional toggle much like color blind mode. The main question is what the proper visual indicator would be, that's where I'd default to a ux designer since id have ideas, but they're probably bad ones :p.
starcraft 2 ran in this problem with their nydus worms 'screaming' and they fixed it for deaf players by adding yellow text on the side of the screen where you get text cues for stuff like upgrades and buildings finishing, or your base being under attack, saying in bright color instead of the usual color 'Nydus worm spawned' and they did the same with nukes and it seemed to be well received so in league perhaps having the chat box open and write in a specific font 'Sion Ult Activated' could be a similar way to implement this

: We just took Your Shop down. We are aware of an issue with the deals, at the moment. We are working on an update to get it up, ASAP. Hopefully, the update will yield better results for all.
Can I receive an official apology from Riot on that one please? My shop went from offering me Butcher Olaf at 50% off and Tyrant Swain at 70% off to offering me Butcher Olaf 30% off and Tyrant Swain at 40% off... For an update that was supposed to yield 'better results' I feel somewhat insulted :( It's not that I want the skins at the previous discounts, it's just the principle of reoffering the same thing but at a higher price point feels a bit demeaning
: i dont know what version of AP xin you were playing
i used to go nashors/zhonyas/deathcap/frozen heart/spirit visage, kinda hybrid between tanky and AP... healed too much for any dps champ to kill, was pretty fun XD
: Xin Zhao Gameplay Update - To the Arena!
as a former Xin player, I just hope this update brings back AP Xin that heals a ton but deals almost no damage, which was my favourite way of playing him but became useless when his W AP ratio was gutted during devourer times I just hope he gets back build flexibility like he used to have (want to deal tons of damage? build AD, want to heal insane amounts but not deal as much damage? build AP, want to be impossible to burst down instead? build tank items!) the ability to use different items to adapt to different team-comps and in-game situations is something I feel a lot of newer/reworked champions lack way too much unfortunately

: They all weren't invited, so they made their own star guardian team, with blackjack and hookers!
: Illaoi is, in my opinion, the worst Juggernaut design
that first paragraph also entirely applies to Darius, juggernauts as a class are a sad mistake by Riot i'm afraid
: I could do with less jugger-boners on these boards
juggernauts as a class are a horrible concept and impossible to balance, as seen by... all of the champions in it always being either shit tier because their stats are too low or god tier because their stats are too high, due to them not being the only melee champions in the game (they're just too polarizing of a class that there's no middle ground with them) The juggernaut patch in season 5 is one of the main reasons I find it extremely difficult to enjoy league anymore... and Darius is still one of my most played champions :(

: Olaf main's reaction to people calling their champion a "Tank"
I was once cried at by an Ashe that said 'tanks shouldn't be allowed to be tanky AND deal a lot of damage at the same time' while I was playing Olaf... the only champion in the game that actually loses armor and MR to gain AD instead when he ults, therefore choosing between damage and tankiness :P
: Is anyone elses main practically unplayable right now due to the meta?
I wish shyvana was a viable toplaner once again, but you'd need to massively rework her or remove half the champion roster for that to be possible by now :(
: Actually, there's quite a lot of Greek and German too. That said, the general rule about whether or not something is a loanword or not is whether or not it's been around since the times of Old or Middle English. Under this rule, 'turret' actually isn't a loanword, since it's been in common use since Old English. There are very few languages in the world though that aren't full of loanwords if you don't restrict things to the modern form (Japanese and Mandarin Chinese share quite a few roots in historic forms of the language for example, even though they are very distinct languages in their modern form).
that'd mean almost all french words in english aren't loanwords since english as a language was born when Guillaume of Normandy took the throne in what, 1056 or something? and his french rule merged with the saxon lower classes, which gave rise to weird things like the word 'Budget' being used in french from the english word budget, itself derived from the french 'Bougeotte' which referred to the kind of purse rich people carried their money in at the time, which budged a lot when they rode on horseback also, greek inspired a lot of latin words, and french is a latin language, which would probably be where most of the 'greek' words used in english come from, and german and saxon are 'germanic' languages both, so it also makes sense that they share a lot of similarities there :)
: The same could be said about a lot of words English borrowed from foreign languages TBH ('turret' comes from the Old French 'tourette', which means 'little tower', which I find kind of ironic considering the original discussion). Overall though, it's a great example of how what languages you know influences your subconscious thought processes.
aren't all english words borrowed from foreign languages though? considering english is basically french and saxon fused together XD

the problem here being vlad and akali as champions, sadly
: Except Illaoi is Polynesian/islander, not Latino. That would be kind of ehhh to give her something based on another culture. I'd rather her have something more related to her own culture.
Karma's background is more indian oriented, but she has an aztec themed skin that fits her pretty well sometimes the goal of a skin is to give a different outlook than their original design to a champion (outback renekton is far more australian than ancient egyptian, and I love it :D)

you just have to trade with him everytime your cooldowns are up... since he has a weak laning phase, he'll get the short end of the stick when trading with just about any other champ

people don't seem to remember how weak turrets were in previous seasons compared to now these days, towers are made of whipped cream and get destroyed by giving them a mean look, but their shots HURT, back in seasons 1-2 you could towerdive at level 3 and tank 3 tower shots without losing half your hp from it

Shyv might as well not even HAVE a passive right now. And that's fine, because you know who else doesn't really have a passive? That's right, Fizz. Yet he's still perfectly fine (or if he's not, it's not a problem with his passive). The rest of Shyv's kit is plenty powerful to make up for a negligable passive.
fizz passive is incredibly powerful he's a melee assassin who doesn't have to worry about being creep blocked when farming in lane and takes a LOT less harass from ranged opponents in the early levels because of it... if you remove his passive he's literally incapable of going mid anymore
: Shyvana is in like the worst spot possible right now. Her passive is worth a mountain dragon and 1/3 a {{item:1029}} if you actually DO get the dragons. Then again, why not just pick Nunu? Look: {{item:1029}} {{item:1033}} Passive: 100 Gold for the 5 Armor Passive: 90 gold for the 5 MR So Shyvana's passive Stat stick is literally worth 190 gold, this gets multiplied each time she does take a dragon. Okay, this isn't a big deal right - at least she does 10% increased damage to other dragons??? She's pretty much a troll champion right now, and I play some really retarded champions in roles they should never be in - I like diversity, right? But this bitch is completely useless. No CC - can't even duel and she sure as hell isn't tanky - she's a bruiser that dreams of becoming a tank.
I'm a Shyv main and I have to agree with most of this post the big problem is that she was designed to be a melee carry without defensive capabilityies like yi's meditate and alpha strike, or fiora's riposte, or GP's oranges, and that was offset with her having more resists than them because of the unavoidable damage she'd take and her lack of sustain for it (she was guaranteed 40 armor and MR back then) she was also given less single target DPS than these champions, compensated by all of her damage being pretty large AOE so she was a teamfight oriented melee carry then the Juggernaut update happenned and they classified her as one without actually giving her the damage or survivability that other champions classified as such benefit from, while still being more easily disengaged from than about half of them (constant increases to her champion size heavily nerfed her ability to dodge CC in fights, as well as more and more CC being available in general in champion kits compared to seasons 2-3)
