: When mods get their mod card
currently? pretty much
roughvan (EUNE)
: Jarvan IV,Hecarim and Rek'Sai getting nerfs in 9.9
hecarim was just fucking broken and the other two were pick or ban, all needed nerfs they were crowding out the jg champ pool, too bad they refuse to do shit about issues in any other role at all ever
: I can't really agree with these soraka changes on PBE
why do they insist on compensation buffs on shit that just needs flat nerfs, her poke dmg early one is stupid rn because of e maxing and just spamming it point and click every time its up her healing is NOT lacking naturally, her healing is lacking rn because she maxes w LAST because her poke is too damn ridiculous
: So, why is Morgana nerfed AGAIN?

ive been going through lisa again and again (look it up on steam, its REALLY good)
: With all the negativity people throw at riot, Can we take a sec to talk about what they do right?
maybe if they put the same effort they do into non-gameplay things into actually making the game better balance wouldnt be in the shithole it is now
: Bramble Vest Buff
why bother looking at the actual change, lets just make a post complaining about a buff that barely changes the item and does nothing but make it better against healing champs
: Some good Mid-Jungle synergies?

: evelynn
because evelynn is why you lost that game, not the 12/1 kalista

some games just arent winnable really, dogshit team can definitely ruin matches
: I had the most fun experience in my life as top laner
if you just camped under tower and didnt let them get anything out of it you could easily make twitch waste his time while your jg gets free objectives and free reign over bot and mid, the counterplay is there its just team reliant
: see this is why I said don't try to give me advice on my Game play, just comment on how your doing personally, I've built Morel like twice in 4 months maybe 3 times as a test. my last 20 games have been Mostly Tests.
well a lot of my success has been early ganking, pre 6 ganks on evelynn are underrated and you can force a LOT of flashes right off the bat to set your lane up into a good spot till your 6 and can start spam ganking, bot lane also has a lot of gank paths for evelynn and is always who you wanna try to camp as bot lane is just so important rn especially because losing bot = no drags against most jgers
: Yeah, I know if you go back in my games that's what I do, I'm just mixing it up this patch to try out the new predator since my win rate was Crap anyway. I was mixing it up because I'm doing so badly. if you scroll back you'll see I was testing the new Ghost poro runes for awhile too.
ya look back up tho your builds could use some tweaking, mainly morello since it hasnt been good on eve since they nerfed it awhile back
: Evelynn Mains Only plz.
well my highest wr this season is evelynn but i feel like jgers such as j4 rek and heca are better atm, but evelynn isnt exactly bad shes still decent rn just not as good as shes been the rest of this season EDIT: dude im sry but you need flash and electrocute thats the main issue here, off meta doesnt work in this season you need to just do the standard electrocute and rush lich then deathcap or spellbinder i see you mostly build morello second but thats never really a good option over straight ap, it screws with your power spikes and flat magic pen outside of sorc boots doesnt fair better than straight ap in a tanky or squishy comp
: But they legit said you would get placed in Iron on a new account, and I'm inclined to believe them considering it is actually impossible to demote into the league (friend is 0-36 at bronze 4 0LP).
well im inclined to believe my alt account that got placed silver 4 after one loss in promos this season and the bunch of other people with alts that will tell you the same
: This is why the system automatically places new accounts in Iron instead of in Silver.
it doesnt fyi, you get placed silver still just like you used to
: Why in the absolute mother fuck are all assassins so mother fucking safe
rek and yasuo arent assassins and kayn only is if your stupid and take the worthless form, kha zix is one of the most "in" assassins and not hard to hit with one cc spell and ruin late game because his "get out of jail free card" is a reset on kill and his engage and without his ult he cant even teamfight aka if he uses ult to get out of a bad engage hes worthless if you just start a fight after akali is very high risk ever since her true stealth was remove along with her diver-type playstyle and shes in a generally shit place rn zed is getting nerfed and has 2 dashes one of which is restrictive shaco doesnt take flash and has only his ult to keep him alive in a fight after his q is used to engage ekko is aonther assassin that you can just cc when he goes in a kill him before he ults out, even if he does it would be a waste if he couldnt kill anyone not to mention ekko is a shit laning phase unlike most assassins evelynn is basically ALL melee range with her ult as her ONLY escape shes very easy to deal with simply by throwing down a control ward in a fight and she basically worthless most of these are just petty hashinshin arguments because im guessing you lost to an assassin last game
: The game state has gotten out of Riot's hands. They are not capable of balancing it.
if they pulled their heads out of their asses and actually played their game it wouldnt be anywhere near as hard to balance the game
iTaLenTZ (EUW)
: Hypothesis on why matchmaking is so bad
wanna know the simple reason match making is so bad rn? smurfs, smurfs are a huge force rn in gunking up matchmaking because of how many there are atm and matchmaking is trying to balance matches around them, the smurfs are an issue because diamond lp gains are completely fucked so most low diamond players are pretty much only playing on smurfs
: Evelynn Jungle Clear
have you played evelynn at all? she has a speedy and very healthy clear

i was confused because mages are good rn, then i realized this is a year old {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: Pretty sure it's predator if you're hec jungle and conquerer if you're hec top.
not really conq is standard on both roles rn

well i never buy it so i had no idea lmao, 3 hp per basic is still shit tho
: Still waiting btw
they arent banned because riot doesnt give shit about griefers, i thought everyone knew that
: What are your thoughts on the item: Cull?
kinda dogshit, either the hp regen on it needs to be buffed or the gold when its 100 farm is gotten needs to be buffed up
Quáx (NA)
: Yea, top gets camped by enemy jungler so you CAMP THE BOT LANE. The fucked up mentality of lower elo players astounds me.
if the enemy jg is top all game while your bot (currently the most important lane to get ahead, btw) the enemy jg loses out on 1. drags 2. getting more of his team ahead 3. most likely losing mid too off of bot roams and 4 mans from your team after bot takes two towers easily because of lack of jg pressure its not a "low elo" strat its just how league is now top can feed darius like a monkey all they want because they cant ward, a fed vayne is gonna shred the enemy teams asshole a lot better anyway
: Can i just say, ganking mid lane is actually kinda important.
keep in mind a lot of jgers you get will be autofilled rn, jg is in a spot where basically no one wants to play it and autofilling there is common
Zertryx (NA)
: Can someone Tell me who the META Hyper carrys are for each lane
top: vayne, riven, heca, kayle but thats risky, urgot still, vlad jg: heca, rek sai, j4, evelynn is still in a very good spot mid: zoe, zed till hes nerfed, ahri who wont get nerfed period, morg till she gets nerfed bot: vayne, twitch, draven, jinx(literally freelo, no bad matchups and insane at all stages), sivir support: soraka, nami, thresh, janna, basically any enchanter will do fine if they arent taric

: when the jungler dosent campp you but the other jungler does,
if your getting camped at all its your fault for A) hard feeding early so your weak enough to get dived B) not using the free wards riot gave you, too many times ive seen top laners getting camped with a grand total of 0 ward score with both ward charges up at 13 mins. or C) fed early to a duelist that knows because their ahead a countergank will just be a double kill for them IE jax, illaoi, renekton, riven, etc dont expect ganks when you dont set yourself up to be able to be ganked
: It's been over a week since I stopped playing league
havent been on league for a few days, pretty much just playing minecraft and lisa for the 900th time lol, but my shop is out sooooo you know
: Can we stop using statistics to justify why a champion should or shouldn't be nerfed or buffed.
riots own "statistics" are "how is X doing in korea and china" they dont give one single shit about the western audience they made that VERY clear when calling riven a "western" problem aka we arent doing shit about something thats a big problem in 3 of our bigger servers because they arent china or korea its the same thing with vayne, games close out faster in those servers so vayne isnt a big problem aka 3 months of broken bullshit for the rest of us. they've been balancing like this for a few years now and western players are getting fed up with it, from 2017 to 2018 they lost a third of their revenue and im willing to bet that mostly if not all from their western players

: Why do Nunu & Willump feel so fair to play against?

-refusing to nerf problematic champions vayne, riven, etc -horrid matchmaking - buffing champions that dont need it and making random champions busted while continuing to ignore actual balance problems

Why can't riven just get nerfed?
riven isnt the issue spear is, the only people that even buy it are abusers aka {{champion:24}} {{champion:92}} remove spear and riven will be in a fine state with the added bonus of jax not auto winning after 3 items spear being gone would make 0 difference to anyone else but renekton would would be fine after with a few cooldown buffs

Skill matchups are my personal favorite type of lane > > B - Insults the OP by saying they're bad and that's why they lose to riven Frankly I never said bad, nor did i insult anyone, I said he needed to learn the matchup because riven's winrate is more to do with people not knowing how to fight her and how to abuse her weaknesses over everything else. Is she strong? Yeah, is she invincible? No, she's not even that bad. She's nowhere near absurd at the least.
rivens winrate is because of these two items {{item:3812}} {{item:3161}} she powerspikes too hard with these items and without counterplay, sure you can delay it by shitting on her but the second she hits that spike she can be 0/7 and it wont matter a bit, she used to be a snowball reliant skill based champion but these items boil her down to a ticking timebomb pick that doesnt need to know anything outside of button mashing to do well with

the key is not playing a stupid ass pick into a bad matchup and complaining when you get stomped, its NOT hard to just pick a duelist and fuck rengar up the second he trys to pull anything trust me top lane has no shortage of duelists in the meta rn
: how do i get out of bronze if my team wouldnt stop feeding the enemy team?
looking at your games you die WAY too much way too often, just focus on yourself and dont blame your teams, your the only constant in your games you need to work on vission and decision-making, 18 deaths in any game isnt excusable
: The patch notes we have ALL been waiting for
: I Used to Hate CertainlyT
ruthless towards the person playing them? a lot of his champions main example being yasuo just get loaded with safety nets etc and are some of the most forgiving champions in the game for bad play
: MMR is the most accurate way to match people. ranks catch up to mmr slowly
in norms yes but how exactly is it more accurate than just matching you with your peers in ranked?
Keyru (NA)
: It sounds like you had some rough games there. Looking at the match too, you did super well to help carry your team to victory and definitely deserved the win. Many players have already said this in comments but what I do want to mention here is that many players use third-party sites to psych themselves out before a game even begins. Visual rankings are *NOT* 1 to 1 to MMR, which is what matchmaking looks at when creating a team. The system is never actually against you. It works to try to match you with and against players so that you have as close as a 50/50 chance of winning every game, including promos. Looking at the stats for the game (might be a little off since some have played games since then), the match was fair and even on both sides. The system actually matched that game with your team having a higher % to win. I want to share this because matchmaking is always a frequent inquiry we get in support where players feel it is unfair but the system works as it is intended to.
my main issue is mmr being the only real matching factor, ignoring rank lead to uneven matches still, the higher ranked players are still objectively gonna usually do better and mmr being even shouldnt be the only thing dictating whos paired with who, a silver player on a lucky streak getting into a gold game can just ruin it for both ends because they simply dont belong same going for a plat player who might have had 4 or 5 unlucky losses and this goes for promo games moreso than any others, promos are supposed to determine if you belong in the next rank up not to determine if you can carry a few lucky silvers against objectively better players that can likely end up shitting on them hard and thats by far the most frustrating part of the game. i doubt ill ever understand why matching isnt purely rank based like i believe it should be
: Could we please give these junglers something?
evelynn is deadass top tier rn and so is ap shyvanna i believe, but i play a lot of eve myself she is definitely in a fine spot
: heres a trick, dont look at your teams ranks before the start of the game and you wont have to start making excuses before the game begins
kinda hard not to when riot shoves their ranks in your face from that start when i just wanna just champion experience
: I’ve titled this the: “My botlane always feeds illusion.”
its mroe of just its noticeable when they lose because bot lane pretty much decides the entire game unless every other role feeds
