: Feels like riot has been putting more effort in killing per champ role diversity than improving
The fact of the matter is, Riot's focus on cohesive and balance-able kits actually is constraining champions more than ever. You more often than not have to give up one for the other when defining a champion's strengths and weaknesses in such a way that their kit will not randomly break or develop a toxic play style every time an new item is added or something gets updated. I know champion versatility is a good thing, but it *has* been a while since a new item accidentally threw a champion's win rate to 55% or created a weird bruiser/AP build on a champion that can make everyone's life miserable with no counter play.

: How has the community figured out that Nautilus needs monster damage on riptide but Riot has not?
Honestly, Nautilus isn't a hook support. He's not good at it, and shouldn't be played as one. You know what he IS good at? DISENGAGE. You think Braum peels people? Try a snare on auto attack. It's literally as simple as JUST ATTACKING THEM. Leona wants in? Auto her. Master Yi going 1000 miles an hour? Auto him. Ekko wants t,AUTO HIM! Chased by more than one guy? E. Maybe R if you're feeling spicy. Need an escape because you peeled too well? Q the wall.
: Skin suggestions for the new Vladimir skin
I think pool party could be nice since Vlad doesn't really have a "goofy" skin yet. It's not my style, but I can see why it would be popular. Personally, I want either a Dark Star or Debonair Vladimir. Debonair is pretty simple: He wears a suit and tie. I'd really like the idea of walking into lane in style, and a back animation where he straightens out his tie and adjust his cuff links. His effects would probably be the same, it would just be his model and some animations. If it came with a few voice lines though that would be AMAZING. "Put my four o'clock on hold Amanda. I have enemies to ravage." I need to *FEEL* the sexual tension when he's in lane. {{sticker:sg-lulu}} Dark star is gonna take some imagination, but basically Vladimir IS SPACE. Obviously his effects would turn black and purple, but the most exciting parts are his W and E. W becomes a swirling galaxy full of twinkling stars and planets, while his E becomes a black hole, sucking debrid in before exploding. It would be so prettyyyyyy. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}}

: AP Itemization on PBE (8.4)
I'm having trouble understanding exactly how the damage amp on the new Liandry's works. Do you get stacks over time, or does it automatically ramp up over 5 seconds after you damage an enemy? As an aside, i'm glad to see an item dedicated to dps mages and AP juggernauts. It's been a sorely empty spot for a while.

: AP Itemization on PBE (8.4)
These changes are all almost exactly what i wanted from this update down to replacing morello with 3 diverse items and breaking up liandry's into a dot item and pen item. QUESTION: Do you find the diversified items to give more choices to current mages, or rather to make more image's build pathes different from each other?

You hit the nail on the head. Players don't want longer games for the sake of spending more time clicking. They want a feeling of agency over the game state, even if their opponent is currently pushing an advantage.

Why not scale off of cdr instead and NOT screw his build?

: Why Zoe's RNG is actually BAD RNG
Sounds like zoe needs one or all of these to give the intended counterplay... For the balloons to show what they contain before they pop To have the types of potential drops from balloons to be limited to certain summoners or items To have drops have a short delay before can be picked up, or a short delay after they are picked up before you can use them.

It's not a matter of "deserving" it. It's about updating the most unpolished and problematic elements of the game.

: 8 Seasons passed, and I think it's time we make Smite preset for JG
At the very least your summoner spells could be highlighted and make angry noises when you don't have smite. Play Teemo's laugh. That'll get them off Reddit.
: They could do something like what Dota does where buying an item with a certain stat give additional stats for certain classes. For those unaware, there are three stats in Dota that give multiple stats, strength, agility, and intelligence and there are three types of heroes of the same name. If a strength hero buys an item with the strength stat, not only do they get the normal benefits but they also get more auto attack damage, and this is the same for the other classes with their particular stat. So League could do something similar though it wouldn't have to be auto attack damage but perhaps something else.

: If Swain isn't going to be "The Tactician" anymore, will there be a new Champion to take that role?
I was thinking this too. My biggest qualm with old swain was that he wasn't much of a tactician, which is exactly why I picked him up to begin with. Now he's at least going to be coherent with himself, but I STILL don't have a master tactician.
: Vladimir is the remainder of a abandoned idea from riot, Tank mages. The list of tank mages would be. {{champion:13}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:31}} What is a tank mage? Well it's exactly as it sounds, a tank mage is a character who primarily builds ap, or maybe a mixture of AP and tank stats, and simply becomes a very tanky mage. Now while riot has reworked the older tank mages like Galio, or ryze and chogath, fact is, no new tank mage has been created in well over 3 years if you don't include reworks. To my knowledge Rumble is the newest one out of all of them, and it will probably be a concept riot will never re visit. So now riot is trying to find a way to rework/fit these champions into the game without completely deleting their identity, which is very challenging, because for a variety of reasons, the words. "tank" and "mage" should never be put together. As for what should be done? personally I think they should remove the whole health/ap thing and just make it so he only heals period if he builds AP, forcing pure ap vlad builds and that has actually been the solution they had for the others. Ryze: has to build pure ap, and in all honesty people over hype how "bad" he is, good ryzes can still win games Rumble: has to build pure ap, but for the most part, besides rumbles release he was never really a huge problem. Swain: still has clear issues that need to be adressed but he is getting a rework so fingers crossed. Vladimir: IS ALMOST at that sweet spot for they did make his healing reliant on his AP, but problem is, he is still allowed to build tanky and be strong Galio: Honestly his rework fixed all the issues, now he just builds as a pure tank and AP Gal is border line not viable at all, his damage is nothing over whelming, so they fixed it in the sense where they turned him into a tank.
Now this may just be my perspective, but I don't see any difference between a "mage tank" and a "juggernaut". You are right, the words mage and tank don't go together, since mages are typically high range and tanks are high hp, traits that don't usually go well together. That said, a high burst champion with mobility and escapes is called an assassin regardless of whether they scale off of AP or AD, so I don't see why that isn't true for all AP champions. If a champion does respectable AOE damage around them self, is short ranged, and heals off of damage over time, am I not describing both {{champion:122}} and {{champion:50}} ? I think Riot really shot themselves in the foot when they made the word "battle mage" and just threw a bunch of short range mages in there, meanwhile there are plenty of other well defined classes that they actually have a grasp on in terms of strengths and weaknesses. They did that with Galio when then reworked him, simply calling him a warden, regardless of the fact he scales off of AP and built his kit accordingly.

Jinx is portrayed as this hyper active trigger happy young girl who delights in mischief and destruction. She is an adc, so she deals a lot of damage and I suppose that plays into the destruction fantasy but the connections end there. Her Q has a range extension, which lets her poke without engaging, he W is is ranged skill shot better suited to peeling the closest enemy since you can't catch people out through minions, and her E is a small wall of traps to keep people off. Her ult could be seen either way. It's a high speed execute, but it's also global and does more damage the longer it travels, meaning you're better off firing it from a long distance. Her passive is probably the most "jinx" thing about her.
: Have Any Unpopular (Non-Political) Opinons?
: Am I the only one who thinks skillshots aren't necessarily a disadvantage?
Since skill shots have a faliure scenario, they are allowed to have greater success scenarios, be that more damage, cc, etc.
