: The council keeps rambling about how they have all the knowledge and strategy, but a good Warband can't carry without the proper knowledge, objective rotation, lane pressure, and vision. What I think truly separates the two houses is (honestly probably a bunch of tryhards who feel the appeal of being branded the carry) but also having mechanics as a priority and knowledge secondary, you can't carry if you don't know if that bush has an ambush waiting for you.
Aren't Warband the off-meta house? I believe Faceless is the "single carry" house

: They can bait too! ADC can still do damage, can still get kills, but has never felt like it had less effect on the outcome of the game unless you feed. A typical over-tuned bruiser that is waaay behind can ruin your day. They don't have to be good players. Hi, Yi, you adorable little perennial rito lapdog! 0-10, still need to blow all of your team cc on him b4 he ults and runs away a few inches to heal, if he feels like he needs to run away while he's 1v5 your team. You need a melee with a gap closer (it doesn't need to be a traditional bruiser) on your team and you better hope they play better than the other team's melees with gap closers. I understand that going toe-toe with a melee of the same level and income, you should lose if you aren't utilizing your range advantage (where it might exist), but it's ridiculous when an under-performing melee can obliterate a massively fed adc out of the fog of war with a gap closer, a buffed auto, a stun, another buffed auto or two and an ability or two in the next split second, if necessary. Needing 2 rounds would be too much, but changes have to be made. There has to be some reasonable counter-play like we had in the past... and that is that if the opposing adc is 30-2, there is no way anybody on your team should be able to even look at them without being obliterated. Being ahead might mean something for other roles, but it is meaningless to the current adc role. It may simply be that the "come from behind" mechanism has had a disastrous effect on adc role in particular in a meta where burst damage and cc are king. It's too bad. I used to like the pew-pew role, but lately, if I have a melee bruiser in bot lane as support, I'll just funnel farm to them and basically play unofficial support. My chances of winning the game are far better that way. If they choose an AP marksman with versatility, utility, and tons of damage, I know I'm screwed and I'll usually hunker down during laning phase and if I have survived the cavalcade of ganks, then I can influence, but generally not hard carry, the outcome by playing better than my counterpart in team fights, positioning, map awareness, warding, when the fact that they can't play the overall game of League as well as I can becomes apparent. Sure, I can put ADC to bed and pick up ezreal, teemo, cass, kennen, neeko, lulu, some other support that can be built to do more aa than a typical adc, bolstered by their ap scaling and superior zoning, aoe, and utility, but why should I have to? I've put years into the true marksmen. The pendulum could swing the other way, I suppose, but I'm ready for them to admit that the role is now more one-dimensional than ever, basically obsolete, and then put up an out-of-order sign until they can solve their fundamental balancing issue with them or remove them from the game. They won't do that, so we're stuck with suck. The pro teams have experimented with games without a true adc to success. Even they are so slow to take it up because bad habits die hard, but I expect to see more at MSI. I'll adjust or move on to other games. They need to be honest, though. Sorry you got downvoted. What sounds like a gripe is just you pointing out the 800# gorilla in the room.
TLDR sorry I didn't bother to read when I know you are bronze and had that keyword "30-2" in your post. You will never see that in high elo games, don't mention pro games. No offense but bronze games are extremely unbalanced and can hardly reflect meta information. It is too random to talk about meta. Players there have trouble with very basic mechanics. They are not ready to go strategic yet. It is a mechanical game for not, not a strategic one. So take some coffee and climb first. Once you can steadily (not luckily) reach high elos, you will understand what I was talking about. It is way more convincing than anything I can type. Seriously. BTW, votes can hardly reflect correctness especially about game meta discussion. According to Riot's in game feedback, only 0.6% (will probably be more this season due to the elo boost) players are diamond and above, the majority are silvers.
: Heartening to realize that you aren't even a bot player. Empathy is becoming a precious commodity. Kudos, sir.
I am multi-season diamond support player and I know what happened to ad roles in great detail through the metas since S7. Don't want to mention this but since you started it -------- As a Bronze 1 ad, how would you believe that you know bot lane better than me?
: You're actually out of your mind if you think bot lane is bad. Bot lane has been in a good spot ever since the item reverts. Not to mention that it's nobody else's fault but yours if you can only play marksman instead of what's meta in the lane.
I said ad, not bot lane, your comments are actually supporting my point of view instead of against it LMAO. I am not an ad player so I am just here to say some fair words, not to defend my role. Those assumptions weak the logic in your arguments even more. What I said is particularly true for high level games, especially in pro plays.
: Celebrate MSI 2019
trophy pedestal at top lane. yeah, you know exactly which lane is the meta carry lane ad has been irrelevant for ~8 months (they can still feed though, but cant carry)

: More "spend extra RP to get loading screen border" stuff. Remember when it was actually for people who just liked the stuff and bought it early? Not had to spend extra money for it?
I upvoted ur post, but also want to point out that we do have more access to loots now compared to before. However I still hate to pay 890RP more to get the signature... making the cost of each skin almost Mystic tier, more expensive than legendary skins... Which is a bit too much imo

: I understand your want to have Silver Kayle and Judgement Kayle, but these are skins that mean something to players like me who remember staying up with their friends all night well into the school night years ago playing ranked matches in order to obtain Judgement kayle. It would also be unfair to those who spent money on the collector's edition box in order to receive Silver kayle. These skins are Riot's way of saying " Thank you for supporting us back when we were a small Indie company." I always get excited when i see another person in game with a Judgement Kayle or Silver Kayle or even a King Rammus skin, because i can have a nostalgia trip with that person about the days when LoL had absolutely terrible graphics, and more than it's fair share of bushes. I remember when red buff was a bunch of lizardmen and raptors were wraiths. Asking for exclusive reward skins like these to be made public again would feel more of an insult to players like me who have been playing this game for this many years. It would almost be like asking Riot to give you the Legacy banner on an old skin because you happened to get it out of a box. I remember raking leaves for hours trying to scrape up enough money to buy Haunting Nocturne before it got locked up during the first harrowing event. Personally I WANT Riot to leave skins like these exclusive because it makes me feel like they appreciate the time i spent to obtain this skin and other Legacy skins when they were new and exciting. Another thing to consider are other exclusive skins that may be much rarer in the future like the Prestige skins for the K.D.A. set or the prestige bloodmoon set. In like 3 or 4 years you will have people begging Riot to bring those skins back, and then everyone who spent the time to grind games for the 1000 coins or spent $200 to get the coins will feel cheated because now their skin they worked hard for now has no sentimental value attached to it.
I have no clue that those skins are limited, different from other 520RP skins till now. You early supporters are not really well recognized till this update. Some unique style border (like the one for Championship Riven) is far more recognizable tbh. 2 years later, new players will still regard the skins the same as other legacy skins. However, whoever saw the Championship Riven border with the "II" marker will definitely notice that it is unique in some way.
: The very best Kayle model/skin, Judgement Kayle (and the second best, Silver Kayle imo) is(are) NOT available to purchase. FINE, can you make some new Kayle skin with the same/similar wing style/shape??? Judgement Kayle is the only one with true "Full Size" wing, and she is NOT available. Damn I am super tilted by this. Just release it and offer free, unique border for early supporters... AND use the release to help them claim that they are actually unique, early supporters. ----- I don't even know that those skins are limited until now. Before this update, I would think them stupid by using such an outdated skin rather than realizing they are unique. :C Release it and make a claim so that the supporters are better recognized and let us have access to the skins. You can even double the normal price. I am fine to pay 1350RP for Judgement Kayle's model only, even though she has no special effects on abilities.
Seriously, unique borders make all players especially the ones who buy the skins later knowing that the border owners are unique early supporters. They are better recognized this way. Until this update I have no clue how Judgement Kayle & Silver Kayle are different from legacy 520RP skins, they just look dumb and outdated. I would feel awkward when seeing such skins rather than realizing the players are unique early supporters. The re-release, fancy border and official claim/statement will actually help them better recognized.
: Kayle and Morgana available now!

: S7 was a random chance of skin or not. S8 was guaranteed skin.
: Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick were not guaranteed rewards when they were initially introduced. They were random drops from capsules you earned after reaching level 5 (I think? Possible that they were random drops from any capsules). Edit: They were actually random drops from capsules if you were honor 3 or higher: http://www.surrenderat20.net/2017/06/honor-update-delivers-new-rewards.html
Thx but I do not think one can assume RNG as the abbreviation of Random Number Generator in the context of league of legends with a great team known as RNG as well. It leads to confusion.

Thx for the info, but still, how does it have anything to do with RNG???
: These skins weren't always honour exclusive, some people have never been H-5 and own one or both because they've been playing long enough to have obtained them another way before they became exclusive to H-5 or even before honour levels were a thing.
hmm but it feels weird cause I played this account much more than the other one. (~Lv175 vs ~Lv93)
: Medieval Twitch & Grey Warwick Honor 5 Chromas
I got 2 accounts, this account gets H5 for 2 seasons and only received Grey WW in S8, nothing received in S7 for H5. The other account gets H3 in S7 and H5 in S8, received both skins in 2017 according to the date shown by the system. Excuse me? Can someone help explain this???

: So because of RNG, I don't have Medieval Twitch from being H5 in S7. Now I will be getting shafted for only getting Medieval Twitch this season, no Extra chroma, no ward skin, no emote? Hope you won't make me feel as bad as I imagine.

: Updating our discounts for 2019
Regarding the refund tokens, I suggest relating them with currency spent. 1 RP refund token per $100 purchase of RP, or per 15000 RP spent. (or whatever number that makes sense to Riot, you have the data and statistics) 1 BE refund token per xxxxx of BE spent. or restrict it to RP only to make things simple (to have only 1 type of refund token instead of 2). I personally believe associating refund token with currency spent makes more sense than with time, based on the assumption that the need of refunds should be correlated with the number/amount of purchases.

: Heya! Thanks for the feedback on passes - there's lots of room for improvement and this helps us pinpoint where we might want to focus first.

I would suggest 1 additional refund token per $100 purchase of RP.
: I love how i got 17 dislikes :( , is it the gamer girl power?, what do yiy think friend
Because she/he has the majority behind her/him. I received the notification at the beginning of preseason that only 0.6% of the players got diamond, and I believe that is probably solo-queue, flex 5vs5 and flex 3vs3 combined. Starting high gold players are finally able to cast their abilities a bit reasonably to form some combos Starting high plat players begin to have some map awareness Starting diamond or mid diamond players begin to realize this is a strategic game Gold 5 is probably just lucky silvers, especially if the player got it at around the end phase of the season

: Don't know what to think of the ward nerfs as a support. Kind of seems like more fuel for toxic adcs to yell about in all chat. lol
supports are actually least affected, those ward time nerf does not apply to "ward stone"
: New Epic skins: Program Nami and LeBlanc
In case people are confused by the bundle price. Bundle price = skin (1350) + discounted chroma (195 each) * 4 + non-discounted ruby chroma (290) = 2420 If you need the champion with the bundle, you pay 50% discounted RP price for the champ
: Why do the bundles make each chroma more expensive? At the bundle price each one costs 403 RP, doesn't seem worthwhile even considering one of them is bundle exclusive.
Check your math again, and here's the solution! bundle = skin(1350) + discounted chroma (195 each)*4 + non-discounted ruby (290) = 2420

: As a Kha player in high gold elo (I know it doesn't say much) I can say that Kha's R evolved was unplayable, so you just didn't evolve R anymore. His Q, W and E are all very powerful still on their own, and any good Kha'Zix could play him well still. The buffs granted here... His passive doesn't need it at all, and the slow utility will be basically broken. Kha will 100% rise to god tier JG. Honestly, nerf his damage a bit, and make his R work on a charge system instead of being timed within 10 seconds. Obviously as an assassin he needs damage, but it is pretty overloaded at the moment.
you are funny. isn't passive buff essentially an R buff?

After lost to China 1-3 in the final of Asian Games 2018, Korean KBS purchased the copyright of the final on YouTube and remove all the videos of the Final on Youtube.
