: I just cant understand how its ok for pyke to have darius ults on steroids
Because I cant hit 5k hp on pyke and heal 2/3rds of my hp by landing a multiple person q? They are different champions with different strengths. Yes Pyke's ult is "stronger" but it can be dodged. And he is at a much higher risk while doing so.
Velasan (NA)
: I liked the event, but having no idea how it is actually being scored (like how is it weighted? Is it just by number of quests completed?) and United being on top pretty much since the beginning with the largest number of people didn't feel like a climactic conclusion. Oh well it was still fun.
it was weighted based on the number of people in each house (so more people did not = better chance to win) and was based on missions completed, they DID tell us that
: I don't understand how this was scored. In the future, Riot, please make a special queue in which the different houses can all face off. That would really be a cool way to face off and earn the title, rather than just getting points for missions. What would a council vs warband draft game look like? I'd like to see that.

: depending on how many points into her E she has, that's about par for the course Shyv ap scaling on her E is weird, especially in dragon form normally it would take 3 full items to get that kind of impact but if there are squishy champions (with no mr items) then the little pen sorc shoes provide would be more than enough to tear through what little they do have and wreck someone
her E at max rank is 220 + 30% Bonus ad + 70% AP She has a gunblade so 80 AP 40 AD her AP hit 148 in the clip, she had no extra bonus AD on top of her gunblade. 148 x 0.7 = 103.6 40 x .3 = 12 220+12+103.6 is 333.6, way lower than the damage it showed. even if the target had 0 MR she should not do 70% of anyone's hp bar that early. (Even if you add 1 tick of dragon form's field, its only another 20% ap ratio)

the loss of bonus AD on Master Yi's E hurts ER builds though.

Sirsir (NA)
: Counter jungling is overrated in a snowball meta, especially with the jungle being in such a sorry state lately. Snowballing lanes is more important. That said sometimes you just can't do that. 2 of 3 lanes are pushed and the 3rd is Cait/Janna And you usually need a personnel advantage to take objectives.
actually counter-jungling is extremely valuable in a snowball meta, it just has to be done correctly. not mindlessly taking random camps deep vision = laners can play with more knowledge and safety enemy jg has no camps, they get corralled into a gank on that side or have to abandon it kill the enemy jg and take the camp? that is a huge xp swing that makes objectives significantly lower risk.
: The big difference is that steraks build path was gross for yasuo and maw only affects magic damage so its a bit riskier for diving. Now he can easily incorporate that into his build and survive for so much longer.
{{item:3046}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3026}} was already a super common build on yasuo now it will be the same just with stattik instead or replacing steraks with frozen mallet

Vhan8765 (NA)
: Off for a couple reason but mostly in the odd chance of being cc'd under tower so your champion doesn't auto the enemy and draw aggro on yourself for virtually no reason.
this was the logic given to me forever ago. and I'll stick with this reason entirely tbh I'd rather always have agency over my actions than let anything be automated as well.

you won't still sit at bronze 1, actively avoiding every role except for your main though, all the way through diamond 1 They confirmed that in their video. Eventually it will rank you up through the splash, just for that reason wouldn't it?

iDarkWind (EUW)
: It obviously depends on the champion your playing, but if you're, let's say a juggernaut, I would say that a Doran's shield with Second Wind in your runes would help you out a lot. Even tought you said that not fighting isn't counterplay, it actually is in my opinion. Your job to win the lane in that case is to not fall behind and not die, because unless Ryze player fucks up, you won't be touching him at all or winning in 1vs1 scenarios. Nevertheless, like you said he tends to push the wave quite a lot, wich makes him vulnerable to ganks and also Ryze n my opniion has a huge disadvantage at lv6, because his ultimate is not a ability that does a lot while fighting. But yeah, I think overall you have to change your definition of winning considering the matchup. In certains matchups, not dying and just play it safe and not lose EXP and get the most CS possible is a win situation. I think people misunderstand this a lot. "Oh, Veigar and Talon are in equals terms because none of them died and both have the same CS" - Wrong. Talon has a lot of kill pressure and falls off, while Veigar actually scales very well into the mid and late game - AKA Veigar is winning the lane. - Just using as an example.
this learned this with pantheon a couple of seasons ago playing champs like fiora and yasuo. being only 10 cs down, but even in xp and not dying to the panth at 10 minutes, is you dominating the lane. Because you are going to be more useful late game and outscale him.

Liss kills waves fast enough and as a mage can gank over walls and lock people down. She is really insane on the mode. Poppy is dumb to try and dive so she will be able to freeze farm for the other 2, and has more than enough walls to smash people into in the jg. Jax can be replaced by a few hypercarries, I just like his counterstrike stun making him fairly useful early as well. {{champion:63}} {{champion:44}} never make it past bans, otherwise would consider them as well for just how insane they are in the mode.
SuperHornio (EUNE)
: If you had to remove one ability, which one would it be?
{{champion:268}} W, because it removes him from the game :D in a more serious note {{champion:6}} R because it seriously gives me a heart attack every time, and nullifies so much of your HP bar, your 30% hp bar is the same as dead to him.

you main gnar right? really isn't a reason gnar would be broken with DD when he doesn't build it already, since the only "extra" he is getting is with his W's magic damage. {{item:3071}} {{item:3022}} {{item:3026}} is still probably going to be my build on him in most cases (with an early {{item:3211}} if against someone like viktor)
: Pyke was legitimately designed to be played in the botlane in the support role though. He counts. And while Zyra&brand arent "supports" they still only see play botlane by now, they dont work mid anymore as far as i know. Since they occupy the support role you might as well call them thus.
brand works mid pick him into most mages mid and he does just fine. he just struggles with champs like akali
: You mean League of Electrocute. Looks like they will be nerfing DH so no one will take it again... They need to make it so SOME champs want it over Electrocute but not all champs.
I like harvest more on poke champs that usually rely on 1 ability for most of their poke, and electrocute on combo champs. poke champs also tend to get their lane opponents under 50% hp pretty easily so it adds value there
: I forget but I think you can do that with syndra by grabbing the minion when it's about to die wonder if tahm could do the same or if it would be a waste of mana
cant grab your own minions as syndra. tahm cant eat his own minions

Thresh because who doesnt love making the flashy game winning hook? Shen always untilts me when I play him.

you said they were examples of items, just a slight reminder of keeping champs like this in mind when doing concepts like that, either they have good synergy and have to be re balanced around the item or can create abuse cases
