: Prestige KDA Evelynn Preview Misaligned
Same with K/DA Ahri Prestige Edition, and it's been like that since it came out. I don't think they care tbh.
: Skins featured but not for sale?
That's always the case. Skins have generally been released the afternoon EST on the day after the patch lands (in a few hours today). If the patch's skins are very different (Galaxy Super vs iG), they tend to be released a week between each other. This happened between the Coven skins and Pajama Guardian skins. Potentially, iG could be released this week, and Galaxy Slayer next Thursday - or vice versa. Or maybe they'll all be released this afternoon.
: Nami's ult should ping who's in range when you ping it
Why did you get downvoted lol But yeah, it would be nice.
: Zed getting the nerfs he needed.
Nothing too extreme though, they have a skin to sell!

: How do you guys think Syndra is?
Incredibly underwhelming as a burst mage until her R hits its second rank. Until then though, she has some great wave clear and poke damage. Alright champion, but she's currently plagued by walk cycle bugs that cause her to fidget back and force, or be slow to respond to movement inputs. I doubt Riot will fix that any time soon, though.
: Why are posts that blatantly attack players of a specific champion allowed?
People are able to express how much they hate things in a fictional video game. Sometimes, there's a problem with the game that makes it so incredibly unfun that it defeats the purpose of playing. For some people, it's Riven, it's Zed, or it's something as small as Fiddlesticks. People will always look down on assassins for being "talentless one-click wonders", because that's how their kits are designed. {{champion:91}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:105}} People also have the tendency to put those that associate with what they hate in the same basket as what they hate - they'll treat Yasuo players like how they'd treat Yasuo. You'll never change that, and from personal experience, I sometimes treat Zed players as an obstacle standing in my way of actually enjoying the next 30 minutes of my life just to spite me, rather than a human being (or a monkey, if it's ranked) who queued up into the same game. Overall, I think people are just frustrated about how the almost universally hated "tryhard 1v9" champions are so powerful right now that it invalidates playing champions that require longer strains of thought, or have pockets of weakness during the game length. Let them express their anger, it's probably healthier in the long run than trying to censor it.
: ahri is such a boring champ to play against
Most mages are boring to play against, honestly. At least she's fun though 4Head
: Suggestion for Ahri
Just have W prioritize minions it can kill when enemy champions aren't in range, and you'll have a quality of life change that will help her players not hate their feeble existence (personal experience). She doesn't need any hard buffs or hard nerfs - the game just isn't long enough right now for her weaknesses to really be that big of a hindrance.

Morgana mid may be an issue now, but I only dealt with her once pre-update as Ahri from memory so I don't really know how bad she is now with her wave clear. Zed is more of a skill matchup. Xerath is a bully until 6 - from there on, you will almost always have lane priority. She's more of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none champion. The only match-up I genuinely recall struggling with were Fizz and Kassadin though (because I always banned Yasuo lol). She works well into almost everything, and that's why I even started playing her - I got sick of getting counterpicked in mid or being so vulnerable on an immobile mage.

: Why is Ahri hated ? ( Discussion )
People hate her because she's safe -- both in gameplay and in her ability to be blind picked in almost anything -- and how much recognition she gets from Riot in terms of content.

Bultz (NA)
: Since the new champion is coming out with he shines skins
The closed captions of the video that talked about the champion's general timing for release listed them as an "enchantress" IIRC. Besides, I wouldn't put it past Riot to add female champions into the line. There are (supposedly) nine skins after all.

Yeah, because the sponsor magnets won't use them in their pro games. Mages, Tanks, Supports, and Marksmen are all so much more consistently dependable with how their abilities and damage outputs work. It doesn't matter how flashy an Assassin or Fighter is when all they do is take advantage of in-game ignorance on a stage where teams are in full contact with each member.
: are mages ever going to be nerfed? this game is unplayable
Here's a hard pill to swallow: There are over 30 "Mages" in this game, most of which have varying play styles. One little Viktor or Kennen in your top lane, does not mean mages have taken over the lane still dominated by Tanks and Fighters. One little Ziggs or Swain as bot lane carry, does not mean mages have taken over the lane dominated by Marksmen.
: assassins need to be reworked.
Imagine poking out an assassin with an artillery mage for 15 minutes, gaining a kill advantage on their jungler's failed gank, a CS advantage of 60, and then undoing it because they got your 700G bounty with their whopping 60 AD from items and a level 2 auto-targeted R. {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}
Chillin (NA)
: Why are my runes +9 adaptive instead of +10?
You're probably seeing guides or videos from a few patches ago. Adaptive Force was 10, but is now 9. Armor was 5, but now 6. Magic Resist was 6 or 7, but now 8.

It's just (big surprise) Conqueror's interaction with his toggle'd W. Each little burst of his machine gun stacks it and it heals you with incredible consistency.

: The REAL reason vc viscintiy or whatever its called is "all female"
: Isn't the reason why people Run aftershock on some mages is the amount of damage in the game?
People would rather complain about how Lissandra can lock you down near effortlessly for ganks, or how Neeko [blah...], or how Fiddlesticks [blah...]... You look at who these whiners play and it's often times one of {{champion:238}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:91}} {{champion:5}} {{champion:7}}, or some other obnoxiously aggressive early-mid game pick, because they're afraid that the rune invalidates their trades. They got the better end of the stick, because the meta invalidates the near entirety of the previously mentioned {{champion:518}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:9}} unless they abuse Aftershock. This is a worldwide game. More than 20 people play it. Calling for nerfs to a rune that makes you have to use your brain cells instead of face rolling for free lane phases is one of the reasons Rioters don't come to the common individual for insight or advice.

: "Full Build" Variant Skinline For Classic Skins
As much as I love this, I think it would come off as repetitive for champions that share the same builds (mid Mages, Enchanters, AD Assassins). It would also be too taxing to change when the most played builds change, as well as when item icons change.
: uhm hello adc main here. could you buff my hp bar to the level of a ward?
{{item:3046}} It's cheap. People need to realize that having 30 kills on a Sivir doesn't mean Sivir takes more hits than Kled.

Maybe now, people will stop picking her, and we can get top laners before 20 minutes.
Böulder (NA)
: I would agree. Playing normals and getting even an s plus means absolutely nothing. Stats are always skewed so there is no reason to even bother seeing them as worth looking at. For example some of my stats on certain champs are better then challenger players in every way. Am I anywhere near challenger level? No quite the opposite. And ofc everybody can feed no matter their score or mastery because stuff happens but ideally even if my team has garbage micro I think everybody playing ranked should learn macro to at least let somebody carry them.

Some things to account for in Challenger, and in higher divisions in general, is that there aren't nearly as many kills per game. Having higher damage per death and KDA don't make you a better performer than higher players, it justs shows that you can kill a lot in divisions where people make more fatal mistakes and fail to capitalize on your own.

No one can win every game, and having a high score on a champion proves nothing other than you've played a lot of games on them. By understanding your own champion's mechanics, I mean you should know your damage limitations, how your abilities queue with each other when pressed simultaneously, etc. You should also know when to and when not to engage in a fight, and danger ping your allies who think otherwise when the outcome is clearly bad. There's only so much you can do, but you have to expect your **Ranked** teammates to understand the importance of objectives, grouping, and splitpushing at the very least, regardless of division. If you go into Ranked completely clueless, you're a detriment to the rest of your team - even autofills should know to play cautiously, because being autofilled does not mean the game's general rules change, it just means that you're in a different environment. There are dozens of websites you can check for item builds in-game, and even more short guides (I'm talking 3-10 minutes) on how things like lane priority and splitpushing work. In earlier seasons, you could be accepted as someone who just was oblivious. Nowadays, you have so much free info at your fingertips that you cannot, and shouldn't be. This is Ranked, in a video game, but it's still Ranked - take it seriously.

You should have at least a basic understanding of the game's objectives and your own champion if you play ranked.

: How come no matter how much damage i deal, i will never be able to instantly kill Zyra's plants?
Because her plants are designed to require 2 ranged hits or 1 melee hit, with some exceptions like Miss Fortune's Love Tap. Instakilling plants as most ranged champions would just further invalidate her kit. Edit: On the bright side, you can use her plants to charge up your Q's on Draven.

Vayne's no longer a hard champion to play, thanks to the Tumble buffs during her ultimate. Besides, Vayne shouldn't be the "OP" marksman in a tank-scarce meta when her purpose is to cut down tanks like Kog'Maw.

: Normal draft feels like total garbage from a solo standpoint
Normals will always be a cesspool with the greater MMR range in queuing. All too often, you'll get Golds vs Diamonds, but it's okay because the Diamond was duo queued with someone that **is** on your skill level. Our system isn't bad, haha. Give me a break.

The original makers were immigrants from Hamburg, Germany. It's like how Vienna in German is "Wien", so schnitzel from Vienna is called "Wiener" schnitzel.
