Hey, you should post your thoughts in the Wukong thread in the Dev Corner. He’s taking most of the feedback there.
: An open discussion regarding complaints about who gets skins.
While I’m not denying either the core of your argument/reasoning behind your points, if I recall correctly, Riot now makes most of their money off of Esports. The skins are a smaller source of revenue than they used to be. And we’re not asking for a skin a year for every champ or something like that; I’d just like one of my mains to not be completely ignored (Quinn) for almost 2+ years is all. Her last skin was Heartseeker, and it’s been a hot second since she’s gotten a skin at all, let alone a skin I want.

: Malphite changes coming to PBE
This is actually a really great idea, doing smaller/scale tweaking on champions that need some love but can’t get into the main project pipeline due to other obligations/plans already in the works. I see there are quite a few of these up in the Dev corner, and for those champs that perhaps aren’t a high priority for a VGU or a VgU, please keep doing these.

Every meta jungler will shit on her early. Hell even off meta shit like Vayne Jungle could ruin Kayle early.
I mean, if they have a strong lvl 1 or 2, certainly. But she’s still not terrible lvl 3 and onward, and I’ve even had success against some invade heavy junglers as well. Is she the best early? Heck no, we both agree on that. But It’s doable, is all I’m saying. I’ve honestly had more success with her in jungle than with top or mid.
Wúlf (EUW)
: In what Situation would you pick Kayle over other Toplane Champions?
I feel like she’s a bit more suited to jungle now. I’ve found she’s pretty rough to play with in top lane. Yeah, she’s a bit fragile early in jungle, and she gets clapped hard by counter jingling, but once she gets even the first part of her jungle item or recurve bow, it’s significantly easier. Also, since scuttle timings were pushed out later, there’s less likelihood you’ll have to square off against the enemy jungler as early. I normally go Fleet Footwork, Overheal, and Legend: Bloodline into Biscuit Delivery and Timewarp Tonic. It compensates for your weak early game with regen.

Ya know, considering ARAM is a non-competitive mode, they could eliminate this entire issue by simply making all champions available on the mode. It would also be a really good place to experience/experiment with champions they haven’t tried before.

: MSI Trial Pass is the greatest deal ever (no satire)
Yeah, I don’t spend much money on this game, but I do buy the Passes. You can *potentially* make a limitless number of tokens if you play regularly enough, and I can play at least a few games each night almost. I’ve got a large number of epic and legendary skin shards I’m sitting on just because of event orbs I’ve earned. I’ve also refilled crap skins into great ones. Example: a while back, I refilled three 750 RP skins and got PROJECT: Vayne out of it.

: I've literally watched 5 MSI games
I’m surprised other people are having problems with this. Here’s what I do: I login, I go to Vods, and I open three of them in separate tabs. I mute the volume and hit play on all three, waiting ten seconds between each on. The missions only require that you watch up to 15 minutes, and you do NOT have to have the tabs open for them to count.

...Okay, I’m gonna have to give that Glacial Augment Ashe a try.
: This explains how the game actually work!
Okay, so low key, I’m gonna give Swain support a try. With that said, I would simply mention that off-meta/derpy builds normally work better at low elo. As much as I love Attack Speed Bruiser Volibear, I’m pretty certain it only works because I’m Gold level skill at best right now.
Serevas (NA)
: Let me break down a couple points really quickly since I spotted the game you're talking about in your match history. 1. Zed excels at killing ADCs, you picked an ADC to lane against him. 2. He was up over 1k gold over you at 10 minutes. This means you will die very quickly for the rest of the game. Honestly we all have champions that we can't play against for whatever reason. Champions that no matter what we play against them somehow we lose lane. If Zed is one of those for you, I'd consider banning him.
A bit of an extension to this helpful individual’s post. While it’s not a panacea, you should save any hard CC, escapes, and summoner’s spells (if they’re up) for Zed’s ult. It takes practice and it’s tight timing, but if Zed has blown his shadow to engage onto you (which is pretty probable), he relies heavily on the mark from his ult for damage. You’ll want to time it for right after he places the mark on you. If successful, he’s just lost the majority of his damage and possibly his escape. Keeping this in mind may make this admittedly frustrating champion more bearable.

I mean, I’m not an edge lord, but your title’s spot on. XD And you made this thread, so you’ve consigned yourself to the fate of hearing about some of my (slightly) off meta builds. Aftershock Sejuani Jungle with Triforce and Wit’s End. You go Cinderhulk as normal, but the attack speed lets you stack permafrost faster. Attack Speed Volibear. Triforce and Titanic Hydra as first two items, max W first for huge attack speed boosts and trading potential. Kayle Jungle going Fleet Footwork, Timewarp Tonic, and Biscuits Delivery. With E max, though your lvl 1 is weak, you’re clear isn’t bad if you kite, and you can 1v1 most jungler a once you’re lvl 3. It may not technically be off-meta, but I’ve yet to see another Kayle jungler, so yeah. ADC Swain with Press the Attack. Rush Blade of the Ruined King as your first item, max Nevermove first. It’s good up until mid game, so you have to finish the game quickly; otherwise, your booty attack scaling will be your demise. Magic Pen Mundo. The cool thing about this build is that building Sorc Boots as first item is a viable option. Your cleaver’s damage skyrockets with magic pen. I normally go Sunfire and Spirit visage as normal, then I build Morello’s, Rylai’s and Liandry’s. Most of my other “off-meta builds”, like ASAP Varus, are meta now, so that’s what I’ve got.
: Djinn Wants Community Thoughts
I would personally say that a huge help would be more strongly advocating for more modernized forum tools would help make everyone’s life easier. I’m pretty certain that everyone, the mods included, would like the forums to be taken a bit more seriously as a source of viable player information by Riot, but there are a number of *basic* forum tools that aren’t present in this forum. Even something as simple as being able to move threads from sub-forum to sub-forum would help.
: It's not the fact Ez and Lux got new skins...
As both an Ez player and a Quinn main, while I am happy that Ez is getting a cool skin, I totally agree with you. Not enough effort is being put in to make sure that these neglected champs are getting good quality skins.

I would personally more say the writing on that skin’s VO are terrible.

I’ll get the skin cuz it looks cool, but good night, do the lines make me cringe.
Miirik (NA)
: Guessed academy champ skins, was right, am disappointed.
Even as an Ez player, that does suck. Like, I want other champs to get skins, too. There’s gotta be more that Riot can do to promote other lesser played champions. Personally, what I think would be cool would be cinematic shorts for each champion. Maybe just a couple of minutes long or something.

Like, I don’t understand why Riot only bans the account and doesn’t start banning email address, IP addresses, MAC addresses, etc. The current ban system is like a paperweight made of Tun foil. Your ideas don't work because not only are they fairly easy to get around with enough technical know-how but they also bring up the possibility of collateral damage. In fact, I remember reading a post (not recently but on the old boards) where a few years ago Riot did in fact try an IP ban on a toxic player. The result? An entire college campus was unable to play the game. As far as I know and remember the IP ban was removed and only the offender in question was banned. Unfortunately due to the nature of free to play games there's no 100% guaranteed method of preventing permabanned players from playing again outside of maybe ID bans (ban on sight), but even those are reserved specifically for the worst of the worst and even then only as a last resort. If you have an idea to stop permabanned players from playing again that doesn't involve collateral damage or fairly easy workarounds then please feel free to share it.
Perhaps a ban based on mandatory SMS verification then? I know that currently, SMS verification is optional, but phone numbers would not be as easily/quickly spoofed. And do keep in mind that I also suggested MAC based bans, banning based on the physical device. While it true that MAC addresses can be spoofed, it’s not as easily managed as IP address masking, and it would avoid an entire network from being banned as stated in your post.

Merrrrs (NA)
: Opinions like yours is why Riot is damn near bankrupt. Vayne is just fine the way she is. You should learn to play against her better.
With the utmost respect, I do know how to play against Vayne. She’s not the be all, end all of top lane, and I have at least a few picks I’m confident with against Vayne. That being said, she is still too strong right now and needs a few nerfs.
Doge2020 (NA)
: Yeah but sadly those same champs that are hard countered by vayne ( Garen) are also hard countered by most/all of the other ranged top laners like Quinn and teemo. I think that the issue for vayne is to not only nerf her to make her less viable in top, but to also buff the champs she counters so she is a more stable pick top.
Honestly, I’d do two things to balance her: A.) Nerf the scaling of her true damage, hard. Either make the base damage much lower and make it scale with AD OR replace it entirely with flat damage instead of % damage. B.) Jack up condemns cooldown by two seconds at all ranks.
: If you are behind and the singed proxies you, then what is your problem? You get to relax in lane and last hit everything. When you are behind and you are laning against fiora/riven, good luck touching minions. The reason people cry about singed proxying is because nobody understands wave management, if you freeze agains singed, the minions near your tower will be lost to him, if he stays to get them he cant proxy, if he leaves them he gets behind half a wave of exp every time he backs including the gank danger. I guess your average league player wants to shoot things at stuff all day to feel they are accomplishing something.
You’re not wrong that freezing is an option, but you also have to remember that normally freezing also involves you having your wave to work with. Because of the fact that he’s proxying, not only do you not have your own minion wave with which to initiate the freeze, meaning you have to body block the entire wave yourself, and he’s still getting farm and gold. His minions will continuously push into your tower or into you, slowly chipping away at your health or dying to tower prematurely and causing you to lose farm while also doing damage to said tower. Meanwhile, unlike if he’s in lane with you, you can’t punish him for not positioning properly or being too agressive. Usually, you have to rely on your jungler to dislodge a proxy, and that’s assuming they can depending on how they’re doing. I know a Singed Proxy is not the end of the world, but it’s also harder to deal with than you might fully appreciate.
: Nexus Blitz Will NOT Be A Perm Game Mode
I’m not surprised. The problem with these multiple game modes that Riot keeps making is that there are too many RNG or easily exploitable factors that make the games skew too quickly in favor to one side and have no real strategic integrity. They need to stop wasting their time and actually balance Twisted Treeline first before trying to make another game mode.
FFrazien (EUW)
: Nexus Blitz canceled as permanent gamemode
JSin’ this is why they need to actually support and balance Twisted Treeline. For as much as I hate the gamemode now, I’m confident it would be a much better game mode if they actually gave a crap about it. I don’t think they’re gonna come up with another permanent game mode for a while, unless they take the blinders off of their eyes and give us back 1v1s and 2v2s.

: because almost no one plays TT and it might be too broken at this point to fix honestly I think they might be better off just retiring the game mode and replacing it with something else eventually
We all know that won’t happen, though. Riot’s been on record a number of times (most recently, Wired published an AMA with Ghostcrawler) that their primary concern is focusing and constantly refining Summoner’s Rift. If Twisted Treeline gets dumped, nothing’s replacing it.

I'm going to put all my money into shipping SyLux til the end of time. ~~Also, Sylas is WAY hotter than Ezreal.~~
I specifically mention Luxreal mostly for two reasons: A.) Admittedly, pure nostalgia. I main Ezreal and love his slightly more chaotic good Han Solo-esque personality. Also, if Lux existed in real life, I would actually marry her, her brother be damned. I honestly adore Luxanna as a character. She’s compassionate, noble, almost boundlessly optimistic, always tries to see the best in people... A person like her would be few and far between in real life. B.) This is a strange reason, but I feel that a relationship between them would be both more dynamic and more organic. They’re not a perfect fit. They would both have things to learn from each other. Ezreal would have to learn to take things more seriously, to have a sense of responsibility and maybe even duty and compassion toward his fellow man, more so than he may already have. Essentially, he’s a bit cocky right now and could afford a smack or two with the humble stick. In turn, Lux may learn stuff from Ezreal. I dunno, call it a hunch, but I feel like their relationship would be very close to a relationship you’d see in real life: not perfect, but beautiful nonetheless.

: I Used to Hate CertainlyT
I’ll grant you this: the champions CT designs have the *potential* to be interesting and balanced champs to play and play against. The main issue is, as mentioned by many others in this thread, how overloaded his kits tend to be and the lack of *interesting* or *interactive* counterplay they have. For instance, let’s do a laundry list of the features of Yasuo, probably considered the most toxic of his champion designs. Personally, the things I find most frustrating on him are these aspects (not in any particular order): 1.) Double Crit Chance - Rapidly accelerates his late game and also allows him to subvert the strict limits most crit builds have. Because he only needs a couple of items to reach max crit, he’s allowed to build more sustain or survivability than other champs would while still dealing massive damage. And no, his crit damage reduction isn’t enough because Infinity Edge exists. 2.) Flow Shield - This pretty much gives him a shield for free. Not only does the shield last for a modest time when it’s activated, but considering a number of his core items grant additional movement speed, he gets accelerated returns on how quickly the shield regenerates. 3.) Targeted Dash - This aggravates the previous point I mentioned and also turns your minion wave, something that is a protection for most champions, against you. Syndra does something similar, but hers is not instant and is easier to avoid. It’s also gated by a a bit of a longer cooldown and (I believe) better damage on using orbs vs. minions. 4.) Wind Wall - This is, in my opinion, the most unbalanced aspect of Yasuo’s kit. We have a no cast time defensive ability which *completely deletes* enemy ranged auto attacks and most ranged abilities. What’s more, no matter the direction he casts it in, even in the completely opposite direction of the attack, the wall covers his hitbox completely on cast. If Riot would address these glaring flaws and attached his ability to cast windwall with his flow shield, this ability would be much more fair. 5.) Ultimate Placement outside of Towers - While this is probably a harsh statement, I find this protection to a bit too much handholding. If you ult the carry under their tower, *you deserve to be hit by the tower.* That is a calculated risk that practically every other champion has to make. Yasuo should have to as well. And this is all just stuff off the top of my head. With some balancing on these things and come compensation buffs alongside them, Yasuo would be more tolerable. That exact sentiment applies to practically every champion he made.
: She's basically a new champion and it's now been long enough for people to realize how to play her. She's only as broken as most champions are when they're new or get a full rework. She'll be adjusted. No need to worry.
Yep. Not to mention that her early game is booty. If you’ve got a Kayle in your game, you go in on her hard early game by either constantly dueling her or with heavy jungle pressure. If you set her back early, she’s practically a siege minion for the rest of the game.

: Singed is completely unplayable
He’s obnoxious, but I do agree he feels weak. I’d like to maybe see him not be able to proxy as easily (that’s literally the one thing every Singed I’ve faced did ever, and it’s both uninteractive when you’re ahead and borderline unfair when you’re behind), but he definitely needs some love. Maybe a tiny rework to his E so that it’s easier to land the root, more base armor/MR, something like that.
: How do I beat olaf and renekton with nasus ?
You, my friend, need to learn wave management/manipulation. The sad truth is that, without Q scaling, you will likely *never* out-duel a Renekton or an Olaf at early-mid game. With that said, against Olaf, armor/attack speed reduction work pretty well. Building into Thornmail first is not a bad idea. I’d recommend rushing it along with Frozen Heart right after and Ninja Tabi, since most of his damage is physical and auto-attack based. The cold steel of Thornmail stacks with the aura of Frozen Heart for a 30% attack speed reduction. That, combined with your Wither (so long as he’s not using his ultimate, which renders him immune to disables) should allow you to compete. Renekton’s a bit of a different story. You’re gonna have to play safe against him due to the dashes and free armor penetration he gets. Build more health against him, and save your wither after he blows his dashes. He deals ability based damage, so Thornmail is not as effective on him in my experience. Freeze your wave in front of your turret, help your jungler with ganks, scale up, and beat him down.
: Sick of streamers getting early access to games to boost sales.
I get your frustration, but as long as you have an honest streamer, you have a good window into the product you’re looking to purchase and can make a more informed decision.
: Everybody type Florida man and then your birthday and tell me what you get
Mine literally only shows the Florida man challenge and things not related to my birthday. I feel cheated. :(
: She also received two buffs, two to her w(speed is instant to help with dodging, and the ability to auto immediately after the cast time) and one to her e(it shares a cast time identical to her auto wind up speed, instead of a static .25). The patch notes document this
I clearly missed it, then. Thanks for the update!

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 20
Hey, so while I know that I’m still getting used to Kayle, I heard she’s already receiving a nerf despite her early game being non-existent? Can we at least get some small compensation so her early game isn’t *as terrible* as it is now?
