Ah, yeah I thought that might be it.
: Total Recall, or: That Time We Disabled Ranked
Did you guys ever consider reverting the last patch? That's where I'd look for a slightly more permanent solution while getting things fixed.
: CAUTION- SNOWSTORM SALE INCOMING
So I was dumb and didn't read that this changes every day. I instantly purchased a couple skins I had on my list, but now I realize I have a good chance of getting them on sale in the near future. Any idea if I'll be able to use a support ticket to get some RP returned in such a case?
Puynsi (NA)
: People blame snowballing instead of their lack of good decision making abilities. Snowballing doesn't happen just because bot lane farmed, snowball happens because you fucked up. If you want to blame someone, then blame yourself, if you are getting camped, play passive, if midlane keeps going down the river, don't push, if you simply can't win your lane stale them without feeding so at least they wont be wreking havoc in other lanes. If one of your lines is getting camped or under really heavy pressure, make use of the lack of pressence in other lanes and push, more than once I found myself jungling and despite of keeping the enemy jungler in check and ganking constantly no one wanted to push, allowing their opponents to simply catch up by farming in jungle. People needs to stop watching streams and actually learn stuff by themselves.
> People blame snowballing instead of their lack of good decision making abilities. Then why do I hate it just as much when all my wins are massive snowballs, too? This preseason is shit and boring as fuck.
Stacona (NA)
: That is the dumbest thing someone has ever said... Context obviously does not play a factor at all; but Bard was picked in games that were trolls games, on a losing team, on the lesser team, and had no hopes of winning the game - so you are basing off a fact from a very obscured statistic that is completely irrelevant- You really need to use your brain instead of blinding following like sheep and jumping off the cliff because Bjergsen and Froggen are doing it does not mean you have to, and need to think for yourself and see why something is being done also perhaps see for yourselves what works and what does not work - 99% of the champions are always viable. Bard is super strong right now, he also requires skill and team coordination does help as well- but people need to realize Bard is a hyper support, the first of their kind.
That doesn't change that if Bard were super strong, he'd be seeing serious play, or at least be getting banned out, at the top levels. He isn't. Viable is not the same as "super strong". In any case how is C9 vs. IG a troll game? C9 went on to lose to IG later when IG was using Kennen as support instead of Bard. What does that make Kennen support? "Godlike strong"?
Stacona (NA)
: Bard is super strong now - but he was underpowered on release
3.2% pick/ban, 0% win rate at worlds doesn't scream "super strong" to me
: If SKT wins S5 Championship, give Easyhoon his own skin!
I think it should just be up to SKT to decide on their 5. I don't think they deserve more for having an active sub roster.
Stacona (NA)
: Bard was super underpowered on release
but everyone said he was balanced, and maybe even OP in pro play _just you wait and see!_ and now he's had buffs and still doing terrible at the top levels of play
: I think it would be interesting to give trinity force 5% cooldown, its a small change, currently cdr is the only stat it doesn't give.
Give it to Rageblade because reasons.
Rioter Comments
: Does new Fiora have a single counter?
I cannot fucking believe Riot put another %HP True Damage ability in the game.

For example: > > Each subsequent Rocket within the next 10 seconds costs 15/25/35/45 additional mana You mean discourage her to use rockets at all? She'll be oom in like 2 seconds. They'll need to buff her minigun range to 550 then since shes immobile. Having her at 525 range without any self peel is just asking to die. Everyone with 525 range has some sort of immediate escape/speedboost.
She'd just be forced to get Essence Reaver over BT. Seems like a fair tradeoff to me.

Confirmed by Riot. "We made this champion to be the best at grouping and pushing, which we acknowledge is 90% of solo queue".
And Bard was made for coordinated team play. Which one is doing infinitely better at the highest level of play, again? Riot logic.
: hey look im blitzcrank and im gonna zone you simply because i exist
And with only one ability. The rest of my kit is completely unnecessary. Healthy.
: WHY IS SORAKA EVEN ALLOWED TO HEAL MINIONS
: What its like picking Support in team builder
It feels like going into work in cargo pants, flipflops, and a straw hat (no shirt). Because you're just that necessary to the company.
: Improve your last hitting
Drill 1: play DotA 2 for a week done
: Did you know it costs almost half a million IP to buy all the champions?
Yeah, I'd prefer if they keep the champ schedule and just remove rune costs entirely. There's no need for the double IP sink anymore.

He can make so many mistakes *and even if you never make one* he'll still grab your ADC and you lose. No offense but if the ADC gets grabbed they deserve it. Yeah it can be rough for a support guarding the ADC sometimes but the ADC should never be in a position to get grabbed without something like a flash grab unless he's charging and taking position control. At that point most adcs can still punish and get out, the ones that can't shouldn't be picked against blitz unless they picked first.
well yeah, definitely I'm just saying there's nothing you can do about it
: Naut and Thresh have to put themselves in a dangerous position in order to get the most out of their kit. Blitz can set up a kill from complete safety. There are better supports but he's still very frustrating, a lane bully that only needs to be present.
Both of those have other things they can use from safety, though, unlike Blitz. But that's because Blitz is just a hook with a champion attached, instead of the other way around. Terrible design.
: Blitzcrank is so damn frustrating to play against
Worse. He can make so many mistakes *and even if you never make one* he'll still grab your ADC and you lose.
: If people could just say 'I did sorry' then LoL would be a far better environment.
There is no need to apologize for *playing a videogame* imperfectly.
SSJTribe (NA)
: Most of the time when I see that asked it's not cut and dry like the example you posted. I had a game the other day where I was playing Mid lane Lux and I was up 1-0-1 against my lane opponent Zed who was 0-2-0. I pinged mia, went back to buy and when I came back he had 3 kills. I honestly had no idea where he got those from. I didn't say anything, but I certainly thought it.
Think it all you want. What is cut and dry is that the person actually typing it into chat is someone that has no business paying a team game.

It's been said many times over years that some of the aura could be nerfed to allow for a buff to the selfish stats. It's simple and Riot hasn't even considered it, nor (as far as I know) even discussed it. So nerf the aura--the aspect of helping your team--to buff the personal stat gain. *Weaken the **supporting** aspect of a support item for **personal** gain.* Because making a support item into a better support item is bad, but making it a better bruiser item is okay. > But they'll replace it with something completely different, without even changing the name, just like Karma. Yes, they will, and people just like you are going to jump on a bandwagon, harping on Riot for changing their game in ways that everyone else is perfectly happy and willing to let happen, because they recognize that Riot knows what the fuck they're doing. Except this time, it's even more pathetic, **because you can't hold any claim or rights to an item.** Sure, some people used RP to buy Karma, including myself...and we still like to play Karma, because the new kit is great and the old kit had a shit-ton of problems. But there was probably one person who bought her with RP and didn't want the rework to happen, so they felt at least the slightest bit justified. Meanwhile, the only person who has any claim to complain about Zeke's Herald being "their" item is the guy after which it was named, and until I see Zeke make a complaint thread about this, I think you'll gain less traction than the already-no-traction Karma bandwagon.
Yes, if the support aspects of an item are so strong that the item cannot be changed in any other way, they need to be nerfed. Not a difficult concept. And I don't need to hold any claim or rights to an orange to be annoyed when some orange company starts calling their product an apple.
: Because the current Zeke's Herald is a stagnant piece of garbage, trash left over from the old League of Auras era. Back when you could pick up four or five aura items that complimented each other and buffed your team, it was acceptable. Today, when the only other aura is Aegis of the Legion/Locket of Iron Solari--and that one has been watered down so much, I'm surprised the aura component still exists--Zeke's Herald is barely taken in a handful of already-winning situations or as a last slot when you have nothing more important to take on a mostly-AD team. It is both niche *and* situational, barely usable, and it couldn't be buffed to where it's a noticeable effect because of how auras scale.
> it couldn't be buffed to where it's a noticeable effect because of how auras scale This is bullshit. It's been said many times over years that some of the aura could be nerfed to allow for a buff to the selfish stats.

I agree with Riot Reinboom on the emphasized point.
Phife (NA)
: You dont get it do you? You've given multiple examples from DIFFERENT CHAMPIONS KITS and brought them together to try and neglect how retarded thresh really is. Thresh has everything on a kit you could possibly ask for, a stun + pull +knock back / forward + 2 slows + an escape and engage mechanism + increased damage on autos + passive armor and AP over time just for standing next to minions. You're telling me thats not overloaded to shit?
I love when people try to list all the crap CertainlyT champs can do, because they always miss one. In this case, Thresh's shield.

: If you ping me more than twice within one second I will literally go out of my way to do the opposite of what you're asking me to do.
: Twice I've actually had friends kill Annie with Tibbers. The first time a friend pulled the Syndra play above. The second time, another friend was Zilean, and he timebombed Tibbers, who jumped back to Annie after being out of range ad the timebomb exploded, killing her. Good times.
I do that as Zilean v. Malzahar all the time in ARAMs. It's great.
: She already has good combat stats you just can't go balls deep at level three anymore.
My point was that just for TT, they could revert Twilight Shroud to this: > While within the cloud, Akali is stealthed and gains 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 bonus armor and magic resistance. ...although they could always tweak the numbers.
Sinlaire (NA)
: Anyone try playing her in Twisted Treeline Yet? It's so fcking stupid. literally every time you smoke the enemy pops their trinket on you. Your shroud is literally just a placeholder all game because you never get to hide in it. i've been tempted to write riot about it because it's so broken on that map.
They should give back her combat stats for it just on that map.

Can you tone down the VFX on Xerath during his ultimate? I didn't even realize he broke apart like that during it. It looks pretty cool.
Xhader (NA)
: Don't you love how people seem to forget that so easily? That was only like, what, 3-4 months ago? But then again I got the skin I most wanted at the time so maybe I'm more inclined to remember
Yeah I got a skin that was 1) on a champ I hardly ever play 2) on a champ I already have a skin for 3) worse than the skin mention in #2 kinda disappointing
: Riot, for all that I like about them, has almost never chosen to be charitable toward their playerbase. Look at the state of Runes, Rune Pages, and Champion IP prices, which are extremely gating to new players and require, literally, months of grinding to achieve. Look at the recent Gromp icon, which is really no different from, say, the already free wolf icon. Look at the chroma packs (and the champion mastery system), which are for some reason grouped in threes and (as I understand) are essentially achievable with 30 minutes in photoshop. Look at the removal of IP sales on champions years ago. Look at the Esports Icons, which are way more about supporting the teams than supporting Riot itself. When a company does as well as Riot does, they often give back to the community with free gifts. Any one of these (relatively meager) things I've listed could have been structured to be more easily accessible as rewards for player dedication and support. I've received a free skin, which was great. And I have received icons from events, which were cute. While I appreciate these; while I am not, in fact, entitled to free rewards ever; I am much more likely to care about a game if I'm given rewards for simply playing. There is a huge difference between something I can buy, and something I can earn. And 99 times out of 100, Riot will make you pay instead of play for the kind of incentives we'd like (skins in particular). This is why I like Pool Party so much in theory, but in reality, the execution is extremely stacked against actually earning rewards. And this, unfortunately, is no surprise at all.
They threw everyone that wasn't a raging psycho a free, random skin a while back. So I wouldn't say never, ever. Though overall, yeah, pretty terrible.

And you know what? Stepping into a circle is pretty hard. Better make it slow just in case someone tries to leave before he gets there.
: To all the people complaing about copyright. Twisted Fate is based off of Gambit from X men from the cards to the accent King Rammus is based off of bowser from Super Mario (mario franchise). Brand can be considered based off of the human torch based on power and ability. Anivia is a carbon copy of Articuno Fiddlsticks is just like Scarecrow from Batman Volibear is litterelly the bear from The golden Compass Talon can be considered based off of Ezio because of sleeve blades and hood (assassins creed ezio) Elise is based off of the Brood mother (apparently) from Dota? People are already saying that Nautilius is based off of the Big daddy's from Bioshock so why not finish the job?
> Brand can be considered based off of the human torch based on power and ability. He can't even fly > Fiddlsticks is just like Scarecrow from Batman Batman has never had any claim on the concept of a scarecrow I'm sure some of your other examples are also crap, and you didn't even mention the Mortal Kombat Shen skins.

: You also have to take into account that naut will have a lot of resists which make the effective strength of that shield a lot higher.
If you're going to do that, you have to take into account that Ekko is going to kill someone in 3 seconds and start taking significantly less damage.
: I don't think Pool Party Mundo is going to get unlocked...
> After a match, most people are on to the next one so talking it over in a friendly manner there is less common than a bunch of GGs and everyone leaving. You know, if I didn't have to actually add people to my friend list, I think Riot could make this work. Just a "play with same team" button at the end of a game that queues you up with all the other people on your team that click the same button would work pretty well, I think. At least for normals/teambuilder.
: Nah. I bought Zac on release and he's not very good and that makes me sad because he's cool. I'd rather have a champ that's great and may need a little tweaking than one who sucks because Rito don't seem to buff up to a level that's acceptable all that often. Shen is a great example of a champ who just received some pretty pathetic buffs after being in a weak state for quite some time.
I have to agree, Riot seems like they like to take OP champs and tone them down to a reasonable level much better than taking weak champs and doing the same.

With escapes + his ult he can get back health and escape situations. That doesn't make him tanky though. A shield that beats most tanks' shields is pretty tanky.
Compared to Nautilus, Ekko has (level 1..18): HP: +4 .. -102 Armor: +0.5 .. -3.7 MR: Identical Shield strength comparison: Nautilus: 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 (+ 9 / 11 / 13 / 15 / 17% of max health) [18s cooldown] Ekko: 150 / 195 / 240 / 285 / 330 (+ 80% AP) [22 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14s cooldown] Assuming Nautilus has 4k HP, that's a 765 shield. Ekko will need 544 AP to match that. Also Nautilus shield lasts for 10s, compared to Ekko's 2s. Nautilus has no other tank abilities. Ekko has his ultimate to heal.
: whats worse is when they get mad at you for not having x and y items yet like "why the crap don't you have a sunfire and randuins" why don't you just give me 6000 gold
And then when a minion wave comes by, they clear it with their good damage from their expensive items.
: Just make him completely immune to CC for the first second of the channel while not being able to detonate during that time. After that, CC applies, and he can detonate.
I'd be OK with even 0.5 seconds.
: Braum good support?
Try to make sure you're playing in a team that actually autoattacks once in a while. Fiddle jungle with a Karthus mid probably won't be getting a lot of stuns with your passive in teamfights.
canpan14 (NA)
: I think it would be cool if the fury played a bigger role. But I think the kit would need a bigger rework to do your suggested changes because it would make him very boring if you took out the RNG. Just because there would be 0% surprise on his damage or anything. Which of course you could argue is better for game clarity (or something like that).
> But I think the kit would need a bigger rework to do your suggested changes Riot wouldn't change something like that without throwing in a bigger rework just for giggles anyway.
