: Jungle nerfs are making junglers more impactful in the outcome of the game
i'm glad riot is making it easier and more accessible for me to say "jg gap" every game, instead of placing seeds of doubt in my mind that maybe it was **me** who went 0-13 that lost this game. thank you, riot games
: The nicest and rudest adc mains iyo
{{champion:51}} most toxic {{champion:429}} most understanding {{champion:20}} {{summoner:6}} {{summoner:1}} doesn't say anything in chat so they don't get banned while running it down, therefore the lowest possible margin for toxicity
: What champs are special to u?
{{champion:202}} one of the first champs i ever played and one of my first mains. don't like him that much anymore because playing adc is basically placing a sign over your rectum that says "FREE USE" but i think he's really well designed in every aspect - numbers are a bit too high but so is everything right now. (old){{champion:266}} one of my friends bought him with RP as a meme when he was a trollpick, eventually picked him up while under Meme Influence and loved & cherished him like my firstborn. his old kit, while not being spectacularly designed, felt so clean and just... right, to me. everything _clicked._ his new kit's cool, but it'll never replace the original in my eyes {{champion:82}} murder emperor is numero uno. bought him as one of my first champions that wasn't given to me for free, and then built full AD and lifesteal because i thought i needed sustain due to health costs. a much more innocent time.
: Could disenchanting champ shards give a bit more blue essence?
they used to be higher before the ip into blue essence change, but like orange essence the amount you got from disenchanting dropped moderately. if they reverted everything back to its previous values i'd have no problem with the way the level grind currently works, but it takes ages to get new champions, especially if you're pre-30.

darius - unless you're playing blind pick and a darius on _your_ team puts stacks on someone, it deals minimum damage swain & syndra - minimum damage unconditionally iirc. gangplank - applies based on the upgrades he has??? maybe?? all "ultimate affects/empowers base abilities" ones just give silas their kit for a little while from my experience, using it on udyr gives you phoenix stance autos for a minute or so

: Your thoughts on Executes in League?
{{champion:45}} runs ultimate hunter, q-r on squishy = instadeath past 20-25 mins if he's not trolling, can usually do it once every minute if not sooner once he has hunter stacked + some cdr {{champion:122}} is an absoloute meme, but partially acceptable. darius, if remotely ahead, doesn't require to use ult in most matchups to kill someone, so it's usually just used like illaoi ult in a "lol trying to gank me free double kill" scenario {{champion:86}} %missing health true damage executes are f u n. if a tank's the villain they're no longer a tank, and squishies being within q-flash range if he builds tri is usually enough to kill them if they're the villain. it's also point & click. not offensively bad, as it's garen, but it's also garen. duality of garen {{champion:555}} l o l {{champion:6}} is a skillshot with a somewhat fair amount of windup and telegraphing, and doesn't scale. gives him a pretty huge powerspike at 6 which turns into a pretty decent teamfight pick tool later, but in lane w/ no jg help i think it's mostly fair. {{champion:238}} zed's damage being overloaded is a product of the game's damage in general being overloaded. fine design, numbers too high {{champion:92}} "it's riven" would suffice, but eh. unless she's building full ad, it doesn't really do that much damage until lategame {{champion:28}} historically not fun to play against, the mr shred + execute is certainly a factor in that {{champion:202}} no comment for passive, ult has counterplay outside of teamfights if you're not playing yasuo which is always nice executes add to the already high damage by making your health bar artificially lower by proxy of an execute champion existing near you. most of them aren't badly designed, it's just that pretty much everyone can get into the execute threshhold so easily due to high damage that they seem busted
: Searching for other games.
if the aesthetic appeals to you, dark souls is pretty good as long as you can withstand the difficulty at first. i'd recommend furi to anyone with a pulse. and lethal league blaze is the only immediate shorthand game i can think of with similar competitive depth that isn't a MOBA.

Saying Nasus is a tank is like saying Viktor is an ADC because he auto attacks a lot or that Akali is a mage because she builds AP. "bruiser" is an omni-term used in other games to describe hybrid tank/damage classes, which usually describes champs like that in league. other sources say stuff like fighter describes more assassin-based hybrids and bruiser describes more tank-based hybrids, but usually bruiser is just a branch term for stuff like that

: Tips on farming in an oppressive lane?
playing melee champs into ranged is usually a form of advanced torture, but you basically just gotta learn to live on CS welfare. take what you can get under turret while you aren't being poked, farm with ranged tools (diana q), etc. also, mages generally can only abuse assassins on mid during the earlygame before jungle pressure appears and assassins start getting powerspike items, but after you get a couple you can usually 100-0 mages by clicking on them unless they perma cc you. essentially just take the abuse early, re-abuse them mid and late, assuming they aren't 5 man deathballing

AR URF (NA)
: being forced to fight under tower is a bad way of designing an enemy champion.
ability to create pressure in lane via dodgable skillshots, counterplayable engages, etc - good, reasonable. usually has to be compensated by something like a weak lategame and/or teamfight to compensate for lane dominance. point and click dashes, resourceless or low mana cost low cooldown harass, or just general zoning by proxxy of champion existing and the threat of you getting into their Death Circle meaning a free trip to base: - terrible, unhealthy. worse is that champions like this are typically not gated by weaker lategames, and instead only get stronger even if they somehow fuck up their free lane phase irelia - still in the game lol examples of both: {{champion:2}} {{champion:6}} (urgot conceptually) for the first, {{champion:85}} {{champion:112}} and stuff like {{champion:24}} {{champion:80}} for the second. panth pseudo-counts because of his weak late.

Mc Raton (NA)
: Every Hook champion are meta warping this game on bot lane It's frustrating
insane high damage + one skillshot putting someone much closer to you, if not melee range + usually guaranteed followup cc abilities for prolonged suffering = hook supports being metawarp. gettin hooked outside of your turret range against players with brains usually means instadeath in an early focused meta, so yeah, they stronk. not to mention actual synergy with adcs or junglers, like jhin addin an extra 0.75-1.75 second duration to your not-gameplay from nebraska, or kai'sa being able to slide into your dms from the next dimension and give you the smackdown every time they land any cc, which makes their epic gamer power rise by unprecedented amounts
: Riot, please add more info about champions and your available skins in champ select BEFORE you pick.
epic idea. would probably help new players a lot and would allow me to hold my friends hostage in discord calls by saying "hey guys did you know that poppy's w has a 70% ap ratio? pretty cool right". good idea regardless
: Did they ninja-nerf kleptomancy? And why are gold earnings so weird?
iirc, the gold earning was nerfed because it can now be procced twice per ability use instead of once. almost entirely convinced that the gold sack drops exist for "150 GOLD FROM 1 Q BROKEN KLEPTO META BUILD" thumbnails alone. i think the "balancing change" was meant to make it better on champions whose names are not ezreal and gangplank, and instead encourage it on sustained damage dealers like udyr or an adc.
