: Wait, Prestige Ahri is going to cost prestige points rather than being grindable?

Piss yellow. $100. Looks worse than fan made. Truly a disappointment.
: Guess what guys.
The best part is that it looks terrible.

: Can we revert the Electrocute nerf/change since Adc's are superior again and almost unkillable?
No one whose sensible wants to go back to when Electrocute took about 20-30% of your health bar early game. I can't tell if this thread is a bait or not lol

: When does patch 9.4 release
Patches will almost always fall on Wednesday of their given week, 2 full weeks after the last patch. In short, this Wednesday.
: Please add more bot difficulties or buff them!
Zyra Bot still destroys me to this day. But in all sincerity, I wish there was a difficulty above Intermediate, but I get that proper game mechanics is something pretty difficult to code - especially something like wave control.
: do i follow a fed zed?
You absolutely do not follow a fed assassin. If your teammates wheelchair'd hard enough to ignore multiple pings when given plenty of time, they deserved to die. Them pinging you for it is just the typical "Nothing will ever be my fault, ever" ADC mentality.
: What if EVERYTHING was nerfed
EVERYTHING being nerfed? I'd assume the game would be in the same state, since balance is relative. Champion and item strength is more so just a question of if it's "stronger than X", since "strong" is a difficult description to pull off without any comparison. If you reduce someone's damage by 10%, and then their enemy's defenses and health by 10%, it would probably take a similar amount of hits to killl them. (Give or take, since defenses work exponentially rather than linearly.)
: How To Beat People Who Main Yasuo and Riven
Yasuo and Riven are sort of built to out-duel practically anyone. If you were to gang up on them, or do some cheeky bush strats to pick off an enemy before a team fight, that's your best choice. Even better if they're the one your team picks off. If you can't brute force them, outsmart them.
JuiceBoxP (EUNE)
: 25 minutes into the game, Score is 40v10, No surrender. what do you do?
At that point, you either just play it out and hope they throw an ungodly amount to the point that your team's actually back in the game. If your teammates are trolling by refusing the surrender and effectively taking you hostage, just like... passively farm waves in a side lane until the game ends, and refuse to interact with the enemy or teammates as much as possible. There's not much you can do because Riot can't really prove anyone's griefing the game by denying an obvious surrender vote, so all you can really do is be patient.
: NERF AHRI RIOT stop avoiding this champ cleary overtuned
Or just revert the Charm buff that made it 1.4s base, that way she returns to the 49-51% she was before then. What you're asking for is overcompensating for a minor overbuff, and ruins the kit's viability when she's just a solo queue noob stomper.

: AFKing absolutely rampant in ARURF
I'd imagine it's because a lot people just don't find the game mode fun anymore.
: Why is Yasuo so basic yet so cool?
Because he's overloaded in the sense that he has moves and combos that can be buffered through Flash, can cancel animations, etc. Unlike most champions, he has the ability to be so versatile because he has an answer or technique for everything.
: Silver is the most fun elo. Prove me wrong.
I'd say OP described mid-Gold pretty well, more so. I look at Silver and just see tragedy.
: Riven.
CDR is just more readily available across the board aside from marksman items, and it's one of her most important stats. She abuses the best items in the game because she works so well with them, like {{item:3812}} {{item:3508}} {{item:3071}} . The problem isn't the champion, or the individual items. The problem is that they all just work so well together. Either way, she's one of the token picks of League, like {{champion:103}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:23}} {{champion:99}} , so getting direct nerfs may as well be pulling teeth.
: Do you believe that Riot is enfocing a 50% winrate by intentionally matching you with bad teams?
I am willing to be proven wrong on the matter, because I'm ignorant of any solid evidence other than impossibly coincidental experience. I've been sitting at a near perfectly 50% (501 W to 502 L atm) thousand Normal games in the past season. Any time I would deviate to have 5+ games over Losses, a lose spree would happen very soon (within ~10 games). Ranked was the same the first time I ever played it last season. I went 7-3 in placements and then a losing spree ensued immediately. Because of this, I'll probably never touch ranked again. It seems just very coincidental to the point that it's uncanny. I don't want to accuse Riot of doing it though, but it just seems extremely suspicious.
: After 45 games I have a 38% win ratio
I've noticed a drop in game quality too. I thought it was just another losing streak, but the way people in my games play is just so extremely off. Maybe early-season MMR is struggling to place a lot of people where they belong?

You mean those same legal issues that movies run into with "ONLY IN THEATRES" and then having it release to DVD/Blu-Ray/Online download the following year? Yeah, no. I don't think there's any legal issues whatsoever that Riot would run into, especially not with online content. They're also not entering into contracts with people regarding the sales of their products, and it's also not unlike a manufacturer re-releasing a previously limited product in a second wave. That said, to the OP, this would be a useful use of the Prestige Points - however, I don't believe the points should exist in the first place. The whole system they were contrived in was nothing but a way to oversell a gimmick and poorly convince people to buy heavily into RP. I personally believe their PR standing with this prestige point system has damaged their business relationship with their customers, because I think it disgusted quite a lot of people. I know I myself was repulsed by it, and I actively skipped buying RP for skins I at one point wanted because of how scummy this system was.

"Only in theaters" is only stated for the presented day of release, like in a trailer. Either way, I double checked and what I was talking about is "sort of" correct. They stopped rewarding the beta skins because of issues with third party scamming. Not sure about borders though. They probably stick by their mindset of exclusive content being rewards for loyal players who want to collect a champion's cosmetics.

: But didn't they advertise the first prestige skins with the same promise? IF they are going to be featured in the prestige shop over the year, that is.

IF they are going to be featured in the prestige shop over the year, that is. Yeah, the skins exclusive to prestige points cannot be resold at any time if Riot legally states that they can only be bought at a certain time. I believe the original Prestige K/DA skins for Kai'Sa and Akali are scheduled to come back at the same time this year since Riot never stated that they were a one-time thing, if I recall correctly, just that they were meant to be rare.

: Use for Prestige Points
Riot runs into potentially legal issues regarding redistributing exclusive content like borders. Basically, they tag it as one-time exclusive so selling it otherwise would infringe on some integrity standard by law. It's why they don't sell Black Alistar, King Rammus, UFO Corki, etc. anymore.
: Cleanse is still a lesser Quick Silver Sash and it makes me sad
I wish {{summoner:1}} granted like, 1 second of 80+% Tenacity after successfully cleansing CC or some other sort of after effect, just so it's more useful in the trend of dogpiling CC onto someone.
GreyfellD (EUW)
: Riot's bias is revealed
Armor is less valuable because defenses work exponentially in this game. You get more value out of having 30 Armor and buying 15 than you do when you have 50 Armor and buy 15. It's not that Armor is useless, it's just that it's so relatively nonexistent considering the math behind defenses. Most champions have low base MR and higher Armor. Magic Penetration wasn't touched anyways. It was made slightly more expensive, but the value is still there and it's worth holding on to.

: Riot's New Business Moto!
But they aren't making more money, from what I've seen. Somewhere on Reddit, there's a post of them being about thirty percent down from last year. https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/ahkyio/league_of_legends_made_14_billion_in_revenue_in/
: Ahri's Charm Vulnerability
I went and tested this just now. Charm's debuff doesn't increase Ignite's true damage, however it does increase the damage of her Q return's true damage.
: Zyra Runes
I found great success with Electrocute>Cheap Shot>Ghost Poro>Ultimate Hunter, Absolute Focus / Transcendence>Manaflow Band. Each individual plant that she spawns counts as a single entity used to proc Electrocute, so spawning two plants and hitting an enemy champion with the Q or E that spawns them will be basically an instant electrocute proc. It helps chunk people out of lane. Cheap Shot and Absolute Focus also help with this. And yeah, you'd be right about the 10% extra CDR from Transcendence being useful. I mostly build the spellthief support item, Rylai's into Liandry's Torment, so that's only 10% CDR among those 3 items, and CDR is valuable to her with her high cooldowns. I suggest taking Ultimate Hunter because it's a game-shifting ultimate that could easily win you a team fight. It's better to have it up more often, especially mid- to late-game.
: 89 games in top lane 43% win rate.ROAST ME
I can't even roast you if the lane is ass.
: I am really disspointed on what has become of prestige skins
I think the main thing they're going for is that each one is exclusively earned at a higher requirement than how rare they are in general They're probably trying to make it so a lot of champions have the ability for their playerbase to show their devotion to the individual champion... ...or to bait in completionists. /shrug

AR URF (NA)
: how the hell are you supposed to fight zed?
The counterplay is in your kit. Matchups with shields can easily prevent his WQ lane poke, and hard crowd control like stuns or silences can be useful on his R because he will always appear behind your character on the other side of his R shadow (cast location), so you'd always be between the R shadow and where he re-appears. If your pick doesn't have any form of healing or shielding, it's best to just get the Perfect Timing rune and buy {{item:3191}} fairly soon; I'd recommend that on any pick versus someone like Zed or Talon though. Best of luck, he's one of my personally most despised matchups.
Nhifu (NA)
: Static shiv literally has no place in the game anymore
One of the most important features of mages is wave clear. It's what they're literally designed to be good at, or else they wouldn't have so much AoE. ADCs are meant to shine against objectives instead.
: What are the best skins?
As Riot's teams get more experience and better technology with skins, they'll just keep getting better. So in terms of content in a skin, I'd say Elementalist Lux still holds the highest rank, but modern Legendary skins are also exceptionally well made - namely, God-King Darius.
: Why is Neeko overpowered?
Something I'd have expected from Phreak tbh.

: Your Exhaust completely negaes parts of kits, which may not be a good idea for something accessible to every champion in the game. In some cases it even shuts down some champions' complete fighting potential (Riven?), while shutting down Flash as a Summoner Spell at the same time. Give it to a hypermobile champion and they will take away the smallest chance no-mobility champs have to escape a gank with Flash.

Give it to a hypermobile champion and they will take away the smallest chance no-mobility champs have to escape a gank with Flash. Yeah, in hindsight I remembered that Flash would count as a blink. It's just spitballing potential changes that could work out, and weren't tweaked to a specific standard. More so, since Exhaust already slows the target, the mechanic of Slow impacting dash speed or range could be integrated more easily and healthily.

The examples for Speed Ups, Blinks, and Dashes are just there as examples, and to bring the champions listed into perspective. Even though I put a handful of them there, it's not all of them. On the subject of Jax, I believe a change to Essence Reaver would be the most effective way of nerfing his ferocious late game.

: Why are bruisers a problem, but mages are not
The problem is that the shift to AP itemization earlier in Season 8 only gave almost every AP caster the incentive to buy double pen ({{item:3020}} {{item:3916}}), to the point that their viable builds were limited to having these core items. There isn't enough easily accessible Magic Resistance to warrant cheap double pen, and frankly an item as cheap as Oblivion Orb shouldn't offer so much penetration in the first place.
