: Runes Reforged: Picking your playstyle
: lol you're full of shit kiddo. If you were actually trained in game design then you wouldn't be suggesting something so stupid as giving every champ access to each others ults and passives, there's no balance in that nor would characters have abilities to match their identities, which are both rather essential elements to a game like this. You can go on lying about degrees you don't have and games that don't exist but it doesn't make your idea a good one. Your statements have absolutely no basis in fact, and are just the opinions of a child who wants to think his unbalanced and poorly thought out ideas are good ones because you're obviously an insecure snowflake, it's pathetic.
Again you make statements without facts. Access to all ults/passives makes the game infinitely balanced. Because now no champ has more than any other champ they all have equal access to anything "OP". The fact that other champs have access to echothers pass/ult is in fact consistent with the League of Legends Lore, where the champions can't use their full kits, and certain "spells" are provided to all champs equally. My point only continues the present game design where as your statements and the suggested changes... arent. rooted. in. fact. just weeb trash emotion and bullshit about "balance". you know nothing lol please go back to school
: I logged in just to downvote this.
I logged in to upvote this. And to satirically point out that you wasted your time.
: Lolz I'm really glad you don't work for Riot, cause this would suck balls, their proposed form is much better. If they were to implement your system the game would die within a couple of months.
I see a statement not backed by anything but the opinion of a weeb. I have a doctorates in economics and focused towards online game ecos research and a master's in game design that I've used to create several smaller successful online games over the last 20 years. Don't believe what I'm saying? Watch this rework tank the player base and then come back to delete your comment so you don't further look the Rakan to my xayah. Aka. My b
: We expect some portion of runes to optimize out on specific champions. e.g. Nasus hooks very strongly into CDR and Intelligence is a fit here. In this way, you're right. These things do take awhile to solve out though, and that discovery process is still ongoing and being disrupted for many champions even with the current setup. I don't believe the "no matter what you do" statement is correct though. "Optimal" can be meaningfully changed by situation, such as who your allies are or who your enemies are. e.g. In the last article, we showed Overheal - which gets MUCH stronger when you have a healer on your team, and more so in your lane. Switching to overheal causes other decisions to switch as well, and this is what the "splashing" is all about here. To get overheal, you have to also change your other splash rune choice.
NO this is bad. It destroys the current item system, which destroys all current players sense of preferred playstyle, whether you follow meta or not. PLEASE make the system more like this: 2 keystones: options are from all spells {{summoner:14}} champ passives, abilities, ultimates, and item passives/affects and the current and new keystones. These keystones REPLACE D and F as passive or activateable abilities Toss this path rework with tied runes and make the starting optional stats a free 30 point stat system that you can place on ANY stat in ANY which way. SO for example a starting character would look like this: {{champion:37}} picks {{champion:81}} ULT for D KEYSTONE and {{champion:16}} ULT for F KEYSTONE. {{champion:37}} Default optional stats are 10 Ability Power 5 on hit damage multiplier and 15 move speed but I go into her default "Runes" and change her stats to 30 Ability Power. Rune pages are now on a per champ basis, meaning there is now a practical reason to go to the champions bio page and you dont need to make a whole "rune" page deal. Plus if players never go to change their stats who cares, the default will take care of their meta following needs without them even needing to approach it. This system PROVIDES a more simple yet Infinite play-style dynamism for ALL current and future champions and PROTECTS all current and future Players item builds by preserving the item system. It also MERGES runes keystones and spells without forcing RIOT to come up with a billion new "ability" runes by just using everything you already have. Please do not do this two path tied runes system you will destroy most of your playerbase. Please implement the system I have kindly taken the time to develop for you. It will make you so much more money and be such a better game for years to come. Thank you

: First downvote
This is correct. Most people don't understand the TOS. RIOT is about making a sport, a sport that makes money. If you find a way to win every match against their pro teams in less than ten minutes. That is by default an exploit and a bannable offense. It doesn't matter if your IQ is 250 and all you did is use their items in a way that no one with an IQ of < 180 can think of. You don't belong in this community of Nay saying conventionalists. The irony about this is league of legends is the ONLY game that allows for COMPLETE cross-class operating and building. Too bad the only person at RIOT games with any imagination or skill at all is the original game designer... and us. Fact: 1. Never used a script. 2. Only used the C word twice, for against players who literally spammed really hurtful passive aggressive demeaning things to other teammates who were "feeding" (<5 deaths). 3. Over 20,000 dollars spent across 12 accounts in 2 years Results: 1. Banned 7 accounts for "unsportsmanlike conduct", "cheating", and "verbal abuse". 2. No explanation given. Conclusion: The fact that I got an entire team of invulnerablity using champions (morg,kindred,taric,kayle,trynd) 5 to use blood razors and ohmwreckers on towers leading to finishing ranked games in less than 10 minutes consecutively and achieving challenger promo twice in less than 2 weeks ISNT the REAL reason i got banned??? I pretty fucking sure this is the reason. BUT do i say: "WHAT a bunch of fucking naysaying conventional money grabbing fktards @ RIOT???" No. I read the TOS. I understand that I am "Donating" money that is irretrievable. And I make a new account and find a new way to utilize my creativity and get banned. This is called Deviance. Being a deviant actually makes this community better. WHY do you think they buffed the towers until after 10 minutes?? Me. that's why. Because i consistently raped that nexus in under 10 consecutively against Diamond Is, and made FAKER shit himself IRL. So what to learn from this? Enjoy getting banned. You are a deviant. It's what you do. Life hates you. Because life is stupid. But because life and RIOT is stupid and hates you, it gets better. WE make this place better by pissing everyone off and in all the different ways we get banned. The thing to remember: Deviance is only good if bans exist. Without prisons. We would destroy society and League of Legends. So we HAVE to be banned. It's neccessary. Or we would keep wasting people and no one would have fun, Smeb would cry and Sneaky would uninstall. That would be LAME cuz no Worlds games to watch. Understand and embrace your deviance. It will make RIOT and its Employees richer, smarter, more popular, and ultimately a major real world power. All the while you have fun ignoring social boundaries and emotional expectations of a largely unintelligent and extremely emotionally insecure community. This will continue to make us smaller, and darker, and less popular and poorer until eventually the only thing we have left is the memory of our blood moon yasuo skins. and even those memories will start to fade... Bring on the banhammer.

: If you guys have had your account's banned and you spent money on them IF YOU DID NOT do what you were being banned for, you have the right to sue for fraud. That is only if you are innocent. Unless the Terms of Agreement say otherwise. Which btw they don't.
Wrong. RIOTS TOS does give them the power to ban under any circumstance they deem necessary. You just have to read lawyer speak m8 to know this
: It also says exploit, so using those in games is against the rules. Knowingly or not you may have used a method to do something against the rules.

"Balance" isn't something that is felt by you or your rank level. It is not an opinion based on experience, bad or good. At the end of the day, this game has so much diversity and so many variables--the ONLY thing that determines balance or inbalance is results. With Karthus being the leading win/loss ratio champion and his win/loss ratio is only at 54%/46%... barely above flipping a quarter--speaks pretty fucking obvious that this game IS balanced, regardless of how you might feel. League is a lot like chess. Just because people who abuse the queen win against noobs a lot, doesn't make the queen an OP imbalanced piece of the game. It just means there are 27million other anti-queen strategies that you haven't thought of to employ yet. Same goes for %hp dmg ekko, or attk speed darius, fioras old ultimate, or zilean/aatrox bot lane both equipped with spirit guardians. It doesn't actually inbalance the game. It does however, make bronze fivees feel that way. Potentially leading to whiners from deterring newcomers to the game. SO yes, even though your assumption is completely incorrect. Riot cares about your feelings. And so do I: but only so you don't diminish the playerbase with your overtly misunderstood negativity. LOL
Zaradi (NA)
: I think the key thing to realize that you seem to be missing is that nowhere in the answer did they mention anything even relatively close to the word "balance". There was no actual balancing discussion being stated in that answer. The question was for an explanation as to why certain damage types and scaling amounts go with certain champions, and they explained their methodology for what kind of damage they give to different kinds of champions. So sure, you can bitch about wanting %hp damage reduced/removed because it's problematic (and as a support main I would really love to stop being one-shot by literally anything with %hp damage), but this isn't the right question to bitch to. inb4 stream of downvotes for people who want to circlejerk about %hp damage being dumb.

Lirik (NA)
: its healthier because riot said so and you should belive them ok ?
its healthier because he can actually lane now instead of running around the jungle trying to find the most killstreaked champion and then ulting them to death regardless of the level difference. Which was basically his only use before his kit update. His passive lets him stay in lane, and his reduced ultimate damage stops him from being an invincible one-shot assassin.
Kinder (NA)
: ***
do u guys even remember the old malzahar? way more dmg. but he was super squishy and was bascially a one-time use assassin. His new passive makes him way more void prophet-esque, and actually useful as a solo lane/mid.
: Dev Blog: Classes & Subclasses
Love the prospective classifications. Here are the primary points of clarification I hope to add to this academic discussion. ONE Marksman, like Mages needs 3 subclass breakdowns: 1. Kite- basic attack/ad sustain (draven, lucian, kalista, kogmaw) 2. Splash- ability focused burst output (quinn, varus, ezreal) 3. Operative- dynamic marksman who are either: a. hybrid of both Kite and Splash (think jinx, vayne, tristana) OR b. versatile marksman who is neither kite nor splash BUT maneuvers the field like some sort of specialist/operative (think gnar, urgot, jihn, graves, kennen, azir, jayce, gangplank). TWO Clarity on current "non-classifiable" champions: 1. Teemo- too solo to be a marksman, too defensive to be a slayer, teemo fits the Disruptor Mage best 2. Singed- Battlemage, very clearly by defnition 3. Fiddle sticks- Disruptor, very clearly by definition 4. Gangplank- although NOT a preferable bot lane pick, HE IS A MARKSMAN, comparable to urgot (ability range only) or draven needing to cash in that q for extra gold to fuel high powered adc dmg items. Gangplank (like Jihn) could be considered a desirable pick for the Artillery Mage draft; however since they are both extremely dangerous close range and are not AP they do not fit the Mage Classification and both fit better under the above suggested 3rd marksman subclassification: Operative
: You should classify Marksmen into two other categories: Casters and Blasters (But use new names) Casters are the spellcasting variant that weave autos in addition to spells and their kits primarily focus on the use of spells ({{champion:21}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:236}} ) Blasters would be the auto-focused characters. Sure, they use spells, but their bread and butter in fights is auto-ing as much as possible with the occasional spell thrown in. ({{champion:222}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:67}} )
Love the prospective changes, especially this conversation. However Marksman, like Mages needs 3 subclass breakdowns: 1. Kite- basic attack/ad sustain (draven, lucian, kalista, kogmaw) 2. Splash- ability focused burst output (quinn, varus, ezreal) 3. Operative- dynamic marksman who are either: a. hybrid of both Kite and Splash (think jinx, vayne, tristana) OR b. a versatile marksman who is neither kite or splash BUT maneuvers the field like some sort of agent operative (think gnar, urgot, jihn, graves, kennen, azir, jayce) Clarity on current "non-classifiable" champions: 1. Teemo- too solo to be a marksman, fits the Disruptor Mage best 2. Singed- Battlemage, very clearly by defnition 3. Fiddle sticks- Disruptor, very clearly by definition 4. Gangplank- although Not a preferable bot lane pick, HE IS A MARKSMAN, comparable to urgot (ability range only) or draven needing to cash in that q for extra gold to fuel high powered adc dmg items. Gangplank (like Jihn) could be desirable picks for the Artillery Mage draft, however since they are both extremely dangerous close range and are not AP they do not fit the Mage Classification and both fit better under my above suggested 3rd marksman subclassification: Operative
: Disruptor assassin.
Exactly. He is in no way a marksman (late game advanced AD carry) just because he has a peashooter. Definitely Disruptor (mage) Assassin (slayer).
: No, Teemo doesn't have a class. If anything its marksman, but aside from that its like Singed, he doesn't have a distinction.
Teemo is not a marksman, his nature is to focus on ability power not attack damage. So not to disregard his high range and auto attack sustain but its never been as effective as say vaynes or ashes or even ezreal (who can also hybrid ap) auto. Teemo is CLEARLY a disruptor(mage) assassin (slayer) by definition not a marksman (late game damage sustain carry). Teemos not a marksman by any means just because he uses a peashooter. xP
