: Thoughts on pyke?
He's busted af in low elo strictly speaking. Not if he's kept in the dirt but he gets ahead way too easy and in low elo some idiot always feeds him. My post got deleted but I want them to nerf his damage personally if he's played as support. Our Twitch fed the hell out of him and he got so ahead that his ult was killing me as a tank at half health. People argue "NUH UH, HIS ULT IS AT 30% ONLY DUUUH" but people apparently just forget about raw damage regardless of the execute mechanic, especially when he's 19-1... You can't nuke him easily because his health unless you have a ton of CC, he caught me through a flash and 2 blast plants because he's so fast. The hook is constant... I just hate this champion passionately. There are NO close fights with his ult either. I've watched him ult spam an entire team far too many times.

: what is wrong with ranked?
What's really frustrating is constantly getting that Bronze 4 and iron 1 guy on your team against a plat team who goes 0-10. I don't understand the matchmaking. Why did I get to Gold just to have bronze and iron on my team to fight platinum? How does that even make any sense? Unfortunately that was me today as Blitzcrank. Oof! Our mid laner fed and we had 4 bot and just fell off. Boyfriend was my adc and kept going ham when we were behind and I kept dying for him to get away only for him to go in. Not one of our proudest moments.
: Revert Asol
I must be an oddball because he feels the same to me except his stars are easier to manage. I actually like the mini rework. His W is just easier for me to use now honestly.

But I mean tripling the effort is having them faceroll the keyboard more soo... In all seriousness the only Assassind I have any respect for is Katarina since she actually requires skill. And Zed cause he has to put some thought in his faceroll and faceroll more than the other assassins.
Zed? Lolwhat? All he has to do is throw his shuriken at you from ages away with a shadow and there goes half your health. He also can just ult you under tower if you're a squishy and then teleport away with 0 consequences. Zed is idiotic. Kat though is very hard to play correctly.

: I'm extremely disappointed as well, but I at least think I know the justification in the lore they're gonna use. Volibear in Silence for the Damned was an avatar, meaning his mind likely inhabited one of the larger ursine and that ursine became even larger and more monstrous due to his presence. It was hinted at by the oily burned face and the fact he isn't in his real mountain massive god body that Ornn beat his ass in the past. Volibear agreed to join Sejuani because he needed bodies to do some weird ritual and create a new body for himself. Perhaps this is his new body, which serves a meta narrative and allows this goreless, silky smooth new guy we have before us to make sense. Still, I'd rather have demon bear and at the VERY LEAST they should put the weapons in his back.
I must have missed something. Oily burned face, and new body? When was this? I remember his old body was beaten and battered and he got royally romped by his brother Ornn who in the process destroyed and entire village that worshiped him and followed in his craftsmanship (rip them) which is why he's a cranky old goat man now and prefers to be alone. But I don't remember anything about a ritual. I'll have to go re-read.

: PLEASE someone anyone from riot help me.
Seriously, if someone says help me get my account back you don't keep spamming the same BS about how they're denied when they put in the request. People forget stuff all the time, especially when they have multiple accounts. I started to keep a book on all my passwords/email etc because I got sick of this stuff. I really hope you can get your account back man. Customer Support through most companies is completely useless, my boyfriend uses Straight Talk and every time he renews they screw it up. We called them back for the 3rd time for the same problem and asked if they could just read the account notes and fix it the way they did last time since it's a reoccurring issue and NONE of them knew how to do anything except read from a script and then continuously forwards us to someone else. Absolute incompetence.
: Volibear's rework
Yeah, I mean it's just the start it's definitely open to changes later :) I am excited to see his runeguard skin upgraded!

: Why is further reducing jungle XP a good thing?
Did I misunderstand? I thought they explained that they were making it so you could hit level 3 on either side of the jungle by changing the exp given. They said pathing is the same and in essence stale so they were going to nerf krugs and buff gromp so you could hit level 3 on blue side as well.
: Do not put execute on the elder buff
I'm on the fence about the changes... The dragons scare me already as is because as it is now at least in Gold, if you're behind and can't really contest dragons and 3 infernals and 2 mountains spawn and the enemy gets both of them it already can completely screw you and keep you from coming back when they get Elder. If they are that strong and then get a buff that allows EVERYONE to become Pyke well... I don't know how to feel about that. I'm just finding an issue where teams who are already ahead stay ahead, especially if your team won't even remotely try to help you get dragons :/ you're just going to be 100% screwed now. Like 70% of my games we're spam pinging for help on an important dragon or baron and our team is just running around stealing my jungle camps instead. Honestly, I like Baron being more important and dragons being less impactful. That is just my personal opinion though because of my experiences. Who knows though, might end up being really fun. Only time will tell I guess.

: You're playing norms lol. I played against a team of 4 challengers in ARAM, but you don't see me making a post complaining about it. The matchmaking is far more lenient when it comes to non-ranked modes.
It's not only in norms. Got a Plat 4, Bunch of Gold 4-1 players in my ranked games. Not sure why. Once in a while I get an Iron 4???
: Love how rather than take the straightest clear path my champ diverts into and around my minions
Oh my GOD I can't even decide where to begin with pathing in this game. So an example is the other day (Left base side of map) I was walking up our jungle along river, you know right on the inside of the wall near the right side of raptors to avoid getting killed. Well, even though I clicked directly above me (right under our tower) when my character started walking there she randomly decided to back path and do a U-turn only to turn around again and then walk to turret. What the hell? Yes, it got me killed. There's no reason for it either, there were NO units nearby. There is nothing more annoying than when you can secure a kill and your own minions decide to doggy pile you and your character starts spazzing out on them because the game can't figure out how to just simply pat around them. UGH! Not gonna lie, I like League and I play it a lot. But the pathing in this game is hands down some of the worst I have actually seen before. A regular tilter.
: You guys ever have that one champion that you're really good with
Warwick. It's a snooze fest each game but if my team follows up it's a good chance for a win.

: GROUNDBREAKING IDEA RIOT: Matchmaking queue "Quality / Time Slider"
Yes please, I'm so sick of that Iron 1 guy somehow being in my Silver 2 games.
It's really rough when you get a game in ranked where it's their first time on that champ. It's even worse when you're silver II and you get placed with a guy who is platinum 4, somehow manages to die 5x pre 8 mins and then proceeds to rage at the jungler who is still clearing and helping bot and rage quits. I hate going 14-4-13, getting 2 barons, 1 elder dragon and my team somehow still loses because they think it's more important to die taking my jungle camps instead of ending. I make mistakes like the next guys, but there are people who straight out just do not comprehend the game's mechanics, at all, in ranked all the time.
: they stated they still want Zac to primarily be a tank but help out those who want to go ap.
Ah okay, well that works for me. I was gonna say as a tank I wouldn't really feel the Q or W that much but my boyfriend plays AP Zac so the ult I think would work better for him. The only reason I like the one he currently has is because it's great for picking.

: Can we do something about creep block
I can't even begin to tell you how many times my own minions cucked me. It's so stupid, I understand enemy unit collision but friendly makes no sense.
: ***
This. Yes. I also have my share of games where I play poorly, but when I get my team baron 3 fucking times there is no reason we should lose. Played a game as Trundle, took baron, team wouldn't do anything except kill my jungle camps so I went and solo'd 2 inhibs. We eventually won thank God but not before 35+ minutes.

: Shen Jungle build?
Ah okay, I mean... I don't clear camps any slower on him than I do Warwick. Warwick's damage unless building straight AP is very lackluster compared to how slow he stacks tanky stats. He was my first mastery 7 toon and I can see why he's only an E tier jungler. It's only Warwick's engage and CC that makes him viable imo. I've recently swapped him out for better options like Nunu who can steamroll everyone xD But I will give aftershock another go. So far I have won all my 1v1 scuttle duels with Shen so that's promising.

: As a jungler you have probably the most impactful rol and you'll see this always, sometimes you'll get blamed without reason, sometimes you'll be doing bad, but it doesn't matter, there is not much I can do for help you with that frustration,that feeling, i know it, one thing i like to do is when i get tilted for a few games in a row, let's see 2 very bad games, or mpaybe 3 bad games or somethuing like that, i like to stop playing, play piano for a while or what an anime or a tv show, maybe a streamer (sometimes this even make me wanna play and tryhard more to try to win). It is hard to hold against people blaming you and kind of harassing you, it's not something exclusive of the jungler, trust me, as a laner even fi you didnt feed your laner but it gets strong or roams and get kills or anything, you'll get blamed too, also probably sometimes you thought people was blaming you and they were not, i found this pretty usual. Once, i was telling my jungler something that they could do to make a play and get some profit out of it, not saying anything offensive, not blaming him ofr anything, jsut trying to help, and he got it as something personal and got ultra salty, when actually i just wanted to win the game, try to think 2 times what the guy who wrote anything to you is trying to say before taking a reaction, some things can be taken in a way that the one who said them didn't even considered.
I've played every lane but as a jungle I do get blamed the most. Sometimes I get blamed for "Never ganking my lane" when I literally got them 3 early kills. It just sucks how you're always at fault, even if you aren't at fault xD it's made me a really aggressive person lol
: Patch 9.7 or how to keep making the game unfun for everyone involved
I'll be honest, I don't get the Garen buff. But personally I already think he's an obnoxious braindead champ and doesn't need any more. All my games with a Garen up until Silver 2 with a Garen have been decided by said Garen. If the Garen is good he single handedly destroys the enemy team and ensures a win. He's hard as hell to catch with the champs I play, super tanky so even if I get on him I don't do enough damage to kill him before he makes it somewhere safe etc etc. Personally, I'd love to see a re-work on him. And why isn't Riven being nerfed?? She literally has everything in her kit and it makes a good Riven impossible to deal with. A Riven running Triumph has so much healing per champ takedown on top of how much CC and shielding she has that she goes from 1 hit left to almost full health pentakilling a team like it's nothing. She has far too much mobility, shielding, cc, and damage combined in her kit.

: How to talk like a Yasuo main
I've lost numerous games where Yasuo was just trash talking the enemy team and lobbing his giant e peen everywhere while dying trying to 1v5 the entire time instead of actually being useful.
: it is either A: rng or B: the first item in their build that can be upgraded honestly, they need to go back to the old version of that part of his passive, where each player can choose what they want to upgrade. forcing ornn players to have to track down each team mate at varying levels is tedious, since you need them to be in a set range and I think hold still (thus making them a target)
Couldn't agree more. What's even more annoying is when they won't hold still long enough to let me upgrade them in a safe spot so then when a teamfight breaks out and I'm clicking everywhere it keeps trying to make me upgrade them instead.

: So I had a Wukong and a Vi support in my past two games. Thanks positional matchmaking.
What I don't get is how come autofill even exists in ranked? People pick specific roles because it's what they're good at or are familiar with... If you take a jungle main and throw him into a support role just to make queues faster then you might be dooming the rest of that team. It always feels unfair to them and whenever I get autofilled to middle or something I feel really bad because I know I'm not good at it and can't hold my lane.
: Why isn't Skarner played that much?
If I see my node being taken I don't take it back until I know the area is safe or I've ganked in it. So far I've been able to win all early duels and I don't even rely on the nodes, it gives attack speed and movement speed but if I am ganking in lane it doesn't always do me any good. You can't exactly track him all game unless the nodes are constantly being contested... And that's if it's only being contested by me and I'm within vision range. Teammates can also activate them and when they take it it doesn't show where I am. The saddest part is I realize most people don't even pay attention to the map and miss out on opportunities to get me xD. Clearing camps early 5x faster than the enemy makes all the difference, you get gold faster, level faster, scale faster and can gank quicker. On top of that if you can clear your camps quick and get the hell out or are able to keep full health when doing your camps (which he can do, courtesy of lifesteal and his W) you're less likely to be bullied by an enemy jungler coming to check your jungle. If you are good with his E you can easily secure kills without needing your ult. I duo with my boyfriend and he wards the buff I'm not at since he top lanes, so if I know an enemy is at my red/blue I go to theirs and take it instead. I don't know, to me he feels really good. Also, I'm excited for those changes, that will be nice!

: Illaoi’s ult is horrid (and ways to fix that)
I stopped playing Illaoi after her nerf. She is very easy to kite and get out of range of, dodging her e is easy. At least for me, just hold still until they use it and move slightly out of the way. Originally she was great for team fights because she had so much lifesteal she could ult into an enemy team on baron and wipe them all out spamming her Q, she was my first pentakill character. Now I feel like I can't heal enough to justify her mana use and less oppressive damage compared to other champs like Kled and Darius. Especially since you can literally just walk away from her, that's something I always hated was people literally being able to just walk away from me and I actually used to run exhaust on her to get that extra slow and damage reduction. Since her nerfs I honestly haven't had a hard time fighting a single Illaoi. I also just get CC'd to hell now whenever I do try to fight in a group. These are just my personal views on her so take it with a grain of salt but in all honesty I really miss playing her.
: Nerf Riven
She's super tilting to fight. Leaps everywhere and when you do hit her you just get stunned and then she gets a shield immediately after and constantly escapes with 1 hit left because of it.
: I'm also on my last S for mastery 7, and honestly, I have no clue. Some of my best games as WW have come and gone since trying without an S rank. The only factor I can't account for is the way the sun shines through my fucking window at midday. The mastery system is nonsense. The way I hold my fucking mouth open has no bearings on these stats, but it might as fucking well, from what I've seen. No tokens from ARAM or unowned champs is like a deal-breaking travesty where-in I lose all investment whatsoever.
Oh no joke, I finally got my last S... I got a worse score than the other matches including on creeps. The only thing different this time is I took 2 inhibs solo and 4 towers with other teammates. I don't typically go for towers as WW unless we have time for sure since he's god awful at it.
