: You know it's a nerf against Champions that do not have dashes in their kits, right?
Don't care. She already has 4 ez buttons on her stupid kit and has been tier mid for long enough.

: Zed...
Because Riot once had a faker orgasm over Zed and now the game has to be fucked. Sorry.
: Uhhh wtf is Zed?
Permaban/dodge. Shitgame, next.
: buff ahri
Ahri doesn't need buffs, and this balance team eats shit for pushing one anyway.
minorjack (EUW)
: 50% winrate across the board? really?
This is because the matchmaking algorithm, and much of the dev squad tbh is genuine garbage. http://www.surrenderat20.net/p/current-pbe-balance-changes.html

: Riot, What the f*ck
Why are buffing already strong champs in teh first place? {{champion:103}} Does not need another fuckign charm buff.
: Balance team buffed Renekton and Ahri despite the fact they are both strong atm and some wonder why the balance team is constantly flamed.

The matchmaker is very noticeably garbage this season. These people don't deserve jobs.

the matchmaker is pretty shit tier garbage. I don't think riot is capable of fixing it.

Nah, look at his tier graph, he is inconsistent af, he is in B1 one month B3 the other one. He is this type of player who will spam game after game even when on losing streak probably, if he keeps on winning(he will imo), he will get silver with ease. He is, in fact, climbing right now.
Yeah it tends to go something like this: I'm winning games, but I'm not climbing. Boards: Your MMR is bad. I'm doing really well, but I'm on a team with 4 fucking losers. Also boards: Well, your winrate is bad.
: not at all. win rate dose not mean anything if his mmr is bad. if he win more but still has a bad mmr he wont climb
Which is just another way of saying that the mmr system is shit tier.
: I'm sitting on a 38% win rate and I'm climbing pretty steadily, lol
: Blaming riot for his skill level. Lmao.

Totally true. Ironically the game is in the best state its been in for 1 1/2 years.
Logged in, enemy picked Yas. Shitgame dodged. Yas's kit is bullshit, particularly the manaless permanent free push.

Her kit has too much potential and is very overloaded. Dumpster the champ and rework it.

They're both fine. Just different and have shaken up the top meta.

Stop letting Zed into your games, period. No other ban will pay off in terms of more won games.

: i know this would be unpopular opinion and i am getting the downvotes. But you have been silver 4 for 3 years, i really doubt you can even grasp how 300 gold item (cloth) negates 1 entire item (ghostblade) of zed. Seekers/ zhonya's is just over kill, not to mention barrier or exhaust. moreover, when zed ults you, you can run back you dont need to stand and fight as if you are a mage. Lastly, in a game where 2 seconds are enough for ~10k damage to go through, and skillshot root/stun/cripples (lux,moregana etc.) are 2 or more seconds long, i highly doubt zed's telegraphed ult itself isn't a counterplay to his kit. I am going to bash your elo a bit and say that sticking with team in mid game and not dying early is the best you can do vs a good zed at your elo. Zed is going to split push most of the time, don't chase him because you are silver 4 and if zed is good you will die. giving you some facts on 0 mana wave clear. zed q range has 900 range, and if it gets blocked by a minion it does half damage. cd 6 seconds Something to note, if zed q's everytime its up he will be out of energy eventually. If zed uses weq and both q's don't hit, he spent 150 energy without energy refund, which means he can just e or q once more and then wait for 18 seconds before doing anything. 1. If he doesn't get energy refund, he doesn't do damage. 2. If he doesn't hit shurikens, he doesn't do damage. other champs with toxic range Mordekaiser has a 675 range 400 width 4 second cd ability (max level) with 65% ap ratio. then 900 range 185 width 12 second cd ability with 60% ap ratio and 25% pen (free void staff?) Aatrox 650 range 200 width, 3 time cast ability (add 300 range e to that, and it becomes more than zed's q range without damage reduction) azir, xerath, velkoz, irelia, ryze, neeko, sylas, veigar, ziggs there are lots of champions who outshine zed, idk why u bitching about him lol ^mentioned champions will hit you for free whenever you go for cs or not, and you will cry because you cant hit back. At least with zed, when he goes for cs, you can beat on him. His energy may come back, but his hp won't unless you don't fuck up. tldr : git gud, zed is pretty fun not because of his damage but because of his outplay potential. Just because you are stuck on low elo doesn't mean there aren't more toxic champs available.
I've played between 3-4k normal games where I frequently encounter golds and the occasional plat, and play against the same smurfs as evwryine else. The number of ranked games I've played in comparison to that number is likely less than 10% of total games. Nice try though. Not only that, but rank shaming aside who's to say that blanket banning Zed in all games isnt the best average choice for the average player? Zed is S+ tier mid for a long time, too long.
: And that data proves what about your point exactly? Not a single shred of what you said in the OP is supported from those stats. None. Point 1: Yeah, fine, if you think it's worth it, although statistically, you're better off banning someone like Talon or Ahri, who have either about the same (or higher!) win rates then Zed, while having higher pick rates. Point 2: Not a single point of that is correct. At all. I don't even get how you make such a leap. Point 3: I'll just put this again: > [{quoted}](name=Wilk Rycerz,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=EWRw90A9,comment-id=00020000,timestamp=2019-06-19T02:27:40.060+0000) > They don't. > > What he's referring to is when he makes a post on gameplay that has the total content of "worth it", and it is removed **by Volunteer Moderator Staff, NOT Riot**, for low effort with a warning (and that warning given as a fact that someone who has been on the boards as long as him should know better then to post something like that on **Gameplay**) Point 4: Again, not even true in the slightest. Want the easiest way to counterplay him? How about the free to 600g item that completely shuts him down in lane (the most important time for an assassin)? Or how about how you know the exact location he's going to show up after his ult animation, giving ample room to CC him and stop him in his tracks. Point 5: Any evidence for that? Any at all? Anything that can be even remotely taken as objective input, rather then subjective complaining? Point 6: ONCE AGAIN: Not. True. At. All. He's a goddamn **ASSASSIN**. If he can't escape, what the hell is the reason for even picking him? Not to mention that it's incredibly tame vs every other single real assassin in the game (and even some assassin-esque champs!) And finally, we get to the only actually true independent point that you have said in this entire post: Yes, 6 points (however made up and wrong they are) is certainly enough to not be considered low effort.
Except that a 42% ban rate would seem to suggest that no one gives a sh*t about this 600g item because it isn't enough to compete with the availability of Zed's ult up time. That the escape is a little overtuned for the sheer distance it covers. Saying that a ban is WORTH IT by itself requires **no further effort** as it is thoroughly and IMPLICITLY understood as completely true as evidenced by a 42% ban rate. You're done dude, stop trying so hard. Riot isn't paying you to be an apologist for bad balancing.

That's fine and all as your own opinion but don't be up in here deeming posts low effort based on your own bias. Honestly the "low-effort" thing is completely up to personal bias and shouldn't be a rule in the first place. The entire point of a gameplay **discussion** board is to **discuss** gameplay. Removing people's posts for not stating and citing statistics is just wrong. If concepts provided in the OP are not only being **discussed** but are also being **agreed with** then removal is just completely out of the question imo. If an OP brings up an invalid argument then it will be deemed so by the commenters who will point it out and be subject to removal. If it's a debatable topic then it will be debated. The second case is in no way detrimental to the overall health of these boards, in fact, this is **the** place to discuss such topics and in turn it increases the overall health of these boards. Whether or not **you** think his points are true they are **valid arguments** and thus can be reasonably argued from both sides which allows us all to discuss them. Ironically, calling this a low effort post is low effort judgement. Also 6 points is already above and beyond. You only need 1. I personally agree that Zed is overtuned right now and there is definitely room for power to be cut somewhere in his kit. So what does this OP do? He lists places in which Zed's power can potentially be cut such as: 1. His range + damage on Q is toxic and shouldn't exist. 2. His escape capacity is extremely toxic and shouldn't exist. 3. His wave clear is extremely strong for ZERO mana.

: Literally the only thing that you said that is true is point 7. Everything else is just so incredibly wrong I don't even know where to start with it.
Disagree. Normally to start you would begin by offering some data to support your asserted point - but you can't. 51.65% Win Rate 11.9% Pick Rate **42.1%** Ban Rate https://u.gg/lol/champions/zed/build

: Yet again Akali is nerfed again
I don't know why you think Certainly T should still be designing champions.
KazKaz (OCE)
: Outside of laning phase her Q really isn't that great, so I think that that's when it's fair for it to effectively have a 2 stack system to it (since she only has 200 energy and each Q costs at least 80). Sure, it clears waves, but have you seen mages? She kinda does need her Q out of laning. Inside of laning though I could live with ANY cooldown since it's a great ability in lane.
KazKaz (OCE)
: Except she doesn't. What WOULD make sense is to make her Q 4 seconds at rank 1 and then it scales to go down to 1.5.
Or maybe it should be 8 secs and scale down to 5. So that she isn't clearing waves with no option to trade.
: The word turd is censored.
It should be censored. I've definitely used it recently, within the last month even and not in a nice way. If anything this is my fault, you're welcome sorry.
