: You may call me a biased AD Assasin main, but in my opinion it wasn't smart at all. It reduced drasticly the window of oppurtonites where Assasins would shine. One time use may look something 'meh, not huge deal' but indeed, in a meta where snowball is so important it is a huge deal. Playing as an Assasin, like in my case Zed, and not being able to take the advantage of lv6 power spike is a big deal. Plus, it makes {{item:3157}} / {{item:3026}} / {{item:3193}} cheaper by 600 gold, wich is amazing. Mages would only waste 2100 gold for an amazing defensive item, and ADC's, if I'm not mistaken, even less for the {{item:3026}} . Since the season started there were games where I wasn't capable of winning, even tough I snowballed, because the enemy ADC rushed {{item:3047}} plus {{item:2423}} (to build {{item:3026}} later) I wasn't able to kill him in the team fight wich lead us to lose that team fight, and nowdays losing one team fight can decide the game. If I was weak and didn't snowball properly, it wouldn't matter, for the must of the time I wouldn't be able to caught the enemy ADC or kill him easy anyways, but in this case, I was fed. I felt extremly bad after doing everything I could to win just to lose to some 600 gold item one time use late in the game. Here I'm not saying that we should buff AD Assasins or something, I'm just reminding that this thing here {{item:2420}} is insanely good against the Assasins, and even tought it is one time use, that one time use can change the whole game. Plus it is a component to items that are very effective against Assasins.
Stopwatch from the rune only contributes 300 gold to it's upgrades, not 600. > like in my case Zed, and not being able to take the advantage of lv6 power spike is a big deal. This is the same problem mages have when the enemy buys a {{item:3155}}. Hex does cost more gold but it also gives stats and isn't a one time use. Now, i agree about how its built on everyone these days, which makes it very hard for assassins to start their early snowball.
: I just said it doesn't. What are you even quoting to me? Comprehension pls.
: For a Vayne main, how could you NOT realize her Q doesn't crit at the moment? Liar.
Because it doesn't... > NEW TRIP NOT CRIT Bonus damage is no longer increased when the attack critically strikes From 7.19 patch notes. Edit: Can't read apparently...
: Riot doesn't do "ugly" characters anymore. :( Making an "ugly" character requires much more creativity than making a "pretty" one. But, judging by the upvotes, Riot knows it's what their playerbase wants. Riot is now fully aiming at a preteen audience and preteens usually like cute anime characters.
: So, the answer is no. You don't know how Vayne works lol
If you're referring to her busted q auto crit damage, then yes Akali would take a lot of damage, but with her passive and gunblade she's going to restore that health pretty quickly.

: Sadly it is more, we shouldn't pressure them because they've all become super sensitive and think we are being assholes any time we bring something up these days. I miss the days of them bantering with us instead of flat out calling us trolls and people saying they aren't gonna talk on social media cause we hurt their feelings.
: Do you know how Vayne works?
Akali has 3 charges on her ultimate with a very tiny cd between the 2. With the Gunblade and Shroud slow Vayne's tumble is nothing.
: Vayne press Tumble on Akali R. Vayne win.
Do you know how Akali works?

Where are you getting "most of the playerbase" from? The boards are not even .01% of the player base most likely, and the reddit sub is also tiny compared to the millions of players, assuming that all of them have the same opinion, which they don't.
: Unpopular opinion: ornn isn't really fair and should be nerfed immediately
: This is litterally the worst season ever! I dont enjoy playing at all anymore.
: You uninstalled your grammar too apparently.
: We need more champions for different roles...
We already have our in house muscle woman, {{champion:420}}. {{champion:113}} Is an honorable mention.
: I suppose its fitting that in the gradual nicking of all Dota's creations that ultimately they'd copy its cataclysmic light vs dark angle as well in the end.
Is that just a Dota thing? Plenty of stories revolve around the light vs the dark.
: Taric. Also, an anti-project would be neat. It probably have to be alien-like creatures, instead of more cyborgs.
I thought Battlecast was the anti-project.
Onandaga (NA)
: Anyone else strongly prefer the design of older champs to the new/reworked ones?
The problem is with these outdated champions is that no one likes playing _against_ them. No one likes playing against pantheon, or the some of old assassins, because the only way to deal with them is not go anywhere near them for risk of not being able to fight back because you're dead in .5 seconds. Or, on the other hand, being behind on these champions is basically handicapping your team.

: Guys, honestly playing with/against boosted players sucks but people who are willing to pay for a boosts are the real losers in these situations, not only are they shit and everyone they play with or against will realize this, but they spent real life money (boosts aint cheap) to get a fake rank in a video game.
To be fair, you could say the same about skins. Problem is, boosting actually hurts everyone involved, except for the booster. The person getting boosted deserve what ever comes to them if they are stupid enough to buy that.

You do realize that worlds is going on right now right? And they play on 1 patch the entire time (7.18 i think?)
: Oddly enough, Ornn scales off of AD on Q, AP on R, Armor/MR on E, and 0 scaling on W. He's hella hybrid, really *rofl
Tanks don't exactly need good scalings.
: Are hybrid champions going extinct?
: because they can only put them on melee champions really. Vlad is special as a mage but not a mage. but things like that are clunky and riot will do what ever that can to make tanks and fighters clunky but if adcs or mages have to wait half a second or more to do damage or ally an effect boards gets filled with this feels bad that i cant get my damage out faster i miss out on so many kills posts as if the same isnt true for tanks and fighters who get everything that is shit passed onto them
{{champion:101}} {{champion:110}} ? > Vlad is special as a mage but not a mage No, hes a battlemage, which is a subclass of mages.

Bârd (NA)
: No, it's definitely Ardent. That item singlehandedly defines every role in the game. ADC has to be an AS-stacking hyper carry with some kind of reliable safety mechanism. Support has to be somebody who can apply ardent. No Thresh plays for you. Mid has to be somebody who can burst the ardent carry (Syndra/Ori), somebody who can match an ardent carry (Ryze/Cass), or somebody who can BE an Ardent carry (Lucian/Corki). Sorry, did you want to see an assassin picked? Nope. Top and Jungle have to be frontliners who can keep their ardent carry from getting merc'd. Aw, did you want to see some insec plays, flash cocoons, or carries up top? Sorry, the closest you'll get are the occasional J4 or Trundle (which are a blessing to break up the monotany of Cho vs Maokai).

: Mages/most AP ruined
Idk what you're talking about, i play almost strictly Syndra and other mages mid in ranked and are still doing pretty well. ADC's and some enchanters are stronger, yes, but you act like Mages are useless.

Maybe for the better. Could you even imagine the huge uproar of Twitch getting a skin in the current meta?
: Where's the new deathfire?
Well, there are 2 main problems with DFT: 1 is that it is really only good on a handful of champions with DoT abilities, along with some who had some way of abusing it ({{champion:141}} ). Some artillery mages might pick it up, but thunderlords is arguably better with most. Oh, and {{champion:30}} 2 is that it literally is just extra damage with abilities. No setup like other damage keystones, just plain, simple, and doesn't feel too satisfying like other keystones do. The new ones are a lot more creative than DFT could ever be. They might have something in mind in the coming months for champions with DoT, we'll have to see.
: Random anti-ranged idea for either an item or a rune
Shouldn't the reduction only apply on basic attacks? This seems pretty harsh to mages, especially battlemages who are supposed to be in the middle of a fight.

: Noticing a lot less report pop ups for reporting toxic players
: sustain is simply a cheap way to get around the fact a champion is going to hit sh!t tons of crap in the face all the time, without coding difficult mechanics and stuff that would accomplish the same thing , of course it's not ideal, but it's functional, lots of bruisers/fighters/duelists have sustain for that reason. ideally she should be more like katarina, fizz, master yi, etc, who have lots of mechanics and dashes to get around all the crap people throw at them without getting hit too much, in the meantime sustain does just fine. akali gameplay is really simple and telegraphed, she is pretty much xin zhao (with a bit more finesse, thanks to her new shroud), jumps in, hopes for the best, often dies anyway. really easy to read and play around.
