: How do you verse a Yasuo Mid?
1. Ban/dodge. 2. Shitgame, next next. 3. Petition riot to release a new skin for your favorite champ that will be popular in Korea. Reap buffs. Watch other champs fall off while yours stays meta {{champion:103}} . 4. Just accept you're not allowed to push back against perma-push Yasuo. Take teleport so that you can replenish your resources against a resourceless champ whose abilities are always up. Expect your jg to have to babysit the lane with you while the enemy jg is allowed to spend his time killing your bot lane. https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2017/06/ask-riot-yasuo-gets-banned/ https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/rAmdFJlk-why-is-no-one-mentioning-tryndamere-and-yasuo-with-the-new-ie-changes https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/tZjskxdn-40-true-damage https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/Tq9MogFE-yasuo-and-his-ult-safety https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/7T3cVkeL-yasuo-hate-train https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/nEbzELmq-yasuo-needs-to-be-changed https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/HuauPWN0-riot-what-happened-to-the-potential-yasuo-changes-from-2017 https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/dc5yq3i9-now-that-yasuo-has-reached-pick-or-ban-status-in-pro-play https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/UiNpdbNp-riot-should-prolly-look-at-yasuo-at-some-point https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/EcE29NFQ-i-hope-the-yasuo-buffs-come-through https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/AHtzRAeR-can-yasuo-get-some-removals-like-ireliaakali https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/EFhVVgfE-riot-why-is-yasuos-q-an-aoe-for-both-its-uses-heal-for-100-lifesteal https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/iJ7UKwwr-the-yasuo-lie https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/mMhwEj7r-where-is-yasuo-nerf-after-93-critic-items-buff

Just look at the lvls of diamond+ players and compare them to the lvls of those who are gold or below. Compare then those people's champ mastery on ANY champion to those that are gold and below. Champ mastery and your overall lvl does not equate to skill in the slightest
That may all be true, but the system that they're actually using isn't worth dick.

: I don't like hearing the ult safety on tower. That's a fine mechanic. It's frustrating to go all in and die during a dive. Lots of champs have mechanics that save them from dives. Elise has her spider form E, Kass can just ult out, Zoe's ult lets her dive anytime she wants to really and another one, Fiora can ult someone and gets rewarded and healed even during a dive. Oh! Zed's ult and or w can save him too! So why is that the biggest deal for a lot of people? It only really works if you ult them at tip of tower range. If I go in on people that are close to their tower I instantly get tower aggro.
its more like, 'AND he has a turret save'.
: Yasuo has a lot of tools but actually doesn't suffer from this problem as a whole. His winrate actually goes down in higher ELO play as opponents learn to exploit him. The core combo of being a squishy melee without strong burst leaves a lot of opportunity for opponents to stop him.

Truth is different than significance. Because certainly, being vulnerable to CC doesn't make Riven unique in any way, nor can it be considered specific counterplay when it effects most champs equally.

Like every other champion then?

Notably, {{champion:157}} seems impervious to developer mention, much less actual discussion or consideration.

: Sylas seriously needs a huge W nerf.
Overtuned for skin sales on release, like every other champ.
Shaydrox (EUW)
: that would render him 100% unplayable....I don't think you play the champ at all if you think that's a good idea
It wouldn't effect his ability to farm lane, which is already pretty good.
Shaydrox (EUW)
: I miss when my main spells actually did damage
Talon needs the CDR on his wall jump increased by about 10 seconds.
Lhuhz (EUW)
: If you play way more normal games than ranked games your mmr for normals will be higher than your actual skill. Unironically ranked games are more balanced un terms of matchmaking than normal games.
I do play more normal games, but the mmr isn't reflected at all as you are saying it should be.
: 1.95 AP Scaling on a basic ability. She also gets a charm if you're out of position and she can Flash E.
She's also a paper wasp and gets killed pretty easily.
ORB1TS (NA)
: Thats what a jungler is for.. And thats Yasuo's Unique characteristic is that he can shove well.
Why should two team members be forced to babysit Yasuo?
: Did you know that Evelynn has a 195% AP scaling on her Q alone? Haha Neeko's 130% AP scaling on ult has nothing on this.
: Neeko has her shield because it's an ability that requires a squishy mage to be in the middle of the enemy team.
: You only play normal games, you can't complain about matchmaking and stomps...
Why would I play ranked when i join normals and get stuck with a team of 4 feeders?
: Yasuo is and always will be a skill match up for about 80% of his enemys. He has plenty of counters in mid and top. Many champs easily beat him such as Morde, Teemo, Malzahar, Wukong, Kayle, Fiora, Jax, Zed, Katarina, Heimer, Ryze, Garen. Those are all the more "ovbious" counters and it is very hard for yasuo to win lane or go even, but its definitely possible. The only thing you need to nerf on yas is his w and make it into a braum shield or like a nidalee w where it heals. Idk its just my opinion, but I really thing nerfing yasuo wont do anything he has been way stronger before and people complaining about Yas instead of like Neeko, Sylas, Xin Zhao, and every other unbalanced champ. Oh sorry I forgot ZOE the bane of my existence. Edit: {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}} So 95% of the replys are he has great split pushing, but wait every single bruiser builds TIAMAT, which is extremly good. Also you can build against a yas, also I listed more than 10 counters to yas. Everyone that downvoted this do not know how to play against him, build against him, or know his counters. Please explain how Yasuo is so overpowered, but he is not in high elo (diamond) or in LCS. You wanna know why? Because players their know how to beat him or at least go even. He is a skill matchup.
Yasuo is nothing remotely close to a skill matchup when he can perma push without having to back for resources.

: Dude, I feel you so hard. Playing immobiles on mid myself, I constantly get shit like this in your video happening to me. It's beyond disgusting already. The fact that Riot refuses to do anything to adress the issue with mobile-immobile disparity being SO HIGHLY BROAD is actually sickening
How about that ranged/melee disparity though?

Just dodge. Shitgame next.
: Sylas is only as good as the champions that are in the game with him. It's quite annoying when he steals Karthus or Soraka ult. But without good ults to steal he really just has one skill less than normal champions
False. This shit is overtuned by a lot.

: Hey guys! I'm the one who was responsible for Riven's VFX update. I've heard everyone loud and clear, and I'm going to be addressing some feedback within the next few days. While I can't promise things will change drastically, I will be giving her an overall color pass (Yikes, poison is most definitely not part of her kit), toning down the ground circles, making her feel more physical, adding runes to her W, adding more linger and ceremony to her Wind Slash, and adding more of a runic empowerment feel to her passive. I also want to say thank you to everyone for taking the time to give constructive feedback.
I feel like your team has done a good job on these visual reworks. I also believe that the work you've done probably goes unappreciated for not having the same impact as a full gameplay update that many champs need really badly. If I had just one criticism, it would be on Veigar's walk animation, he just bounces from foot to foot and it looks a bit cheap.

: Giving a mage an AOE stun and 2000 strength shield is balanced.
Don't forget pop blossom which can easily chunk you to 50% in one rotation with electrocute. Neeko is NOT balanced.
: Lost 5 games during my first 6 placements
The ranked system is kind of crap. I don't know how/why ones provisional rank should drop an entire division based on one game where the matchmaking was basically conplete and total garbage. If riot can't figure that out they probably don't deserve to be making games.
: Latest "Quick Gameplay Thoughts" about Irelia, Aatrox, Akali make me question the design team
: i mean, you make it sound easy to balance it. tell me, how would you balance: 200+ items 150 champions (while trying to keep one role they play balanced if another needs to be nerfed) runes/summoners. its not as cut and dry as you make it seem.
Maybe not biting off more than you can chew is the best way to start.
