LOL Yes she's so low impact, that's why she's pick/ban in pro play and is one of the most banned champs in soloq, because she's just so bad and low impact. borderline unmissable poke and slow? equally hard to miss aoe stun? speed up, heal, and shield? Very very low impact, she might as well not even be there. And sure, she's a free kill if you somehow manage to kill who she's on (and she doesn't have 3 other people to jump on) but she makes whoever she's on _very_ difficult to kill.

You would have to more than double the enemy laners CS until you finished your first item to not be behind.

I'm just going to copy paste my response from your other thread, since I'm assuming you didn't intend to put it in memes and games. You're using smite as a crutch for you inability to cs properly. You're wasting a summoner spell that could otherwise be giving you kill pressure with ignite, map pressure with tp, survivability with cleanse/heal/barrier, etc etc. The benefits of smite in lane are far outweighed by almost every other summoner spell. You can't even buy a jungle item because of the massive reduction in gold you get from csing

You're using smite as a crutch for you inability to cs properly.

The problem with your argument is you're acting like people in soloq don't hate her as well. Despite having such a low winrate, she's maintained a high ban rate across every elo for her entire time on the rift. She feels horrible to play against, and horrible to play with.

: Haha what? I'm as disappointed with Mobile League as you are, but there are a few points: - You shouldn't use "There are videos floating around" as proof that it's going to happen. Just a few hours ago I read some leaks on Reddit which were immediately proven false (Championship Kai'sa lol). A better argument (that made me accept the dark reality of LoL Mobile) is the Video posted by Riot Games Careers where an intern said she was working on League Mobile. The video was subsequently deleted. - It's not connected to the base game in any way. It's going to run on seperaten infrastructure, with a new client. There is no reason to damage-creep classic league when you can just pace the mobile version differently. - Finally, the true reason for their (short-term) patching strategy is World$ once again. Lee Sin getting buffed? Check. Flashy plays? Of course. - The long-term strategy is indeed the eastern market. Blaustoise shared some interesting data that China and Korea don't think new champions are overloaded because they know nothing else. They were introduced to a fast-paced game from the very beginning, so they want more of that.

Even if games looks bad there's still a chance the enemy will mess up and it can lead to a victory. Voting yes to a surrender and it succeeding would always making you gain a point so people would just surrender to regain points I remember when early surrender was announced, the Rioter said that they're implementing that system because most games where a surrender is initiated, the game results in a loss so the idea that there's still a chance to win is not a good argument against surrendering. There is a chance but it's a small chance that people such as myself don't care about. Also, with my system voting yes does mean you'll regain points that you lost but it also means that you lose that game however meaningful that game may be to you or whether you know for sure your odds winning. So there are still situations where it's better to push yes.

: Ok then. If you really want an "expert opinion". Go to Hashinshin's channel. He mained Aatrox in Diamond Masters and now in Grandmaster on his latest account PermaBan Riven. And as to why I can say something about his balance is that I play him decently and I can easily compare him to other bruisers which I main and have mained on multiple accounts for years. I don't need 1000 games of Aatrox to see that his early game is shit and I can't bully as hard as I would with a Darius. Based on my experience I can also say that his level 9 with Deaths dance is very strong but you still have to hit your Q's and reposition. The only reason I am doing this is because I have watched so much of Hashinshin's Aatrox(thanks man). And based on my experience and the words of Aatrox mains I can safely say that his passive nerfs are shit. It will slightly fuck up his pro play(where players don't fight or take damage that much) but it will completely shit on his soloq where he needs the passive to survive the lanning phase. The ult is also a straight nerf.

: Gemstone Skins
I'd consider hextech poppy a bandle city champion with a gemstone skin, considering she's a yordle.

The only reason Vayne's "pigeoned" into a on-hit build is because they removed what made Crit Vayne a thing back in Patch 7.19. The ability for Q to crit.

: See % true dmg should scale off of the least dominant stat in the champ stat Arsenal. That's how to make a more open build instead of a forced build.

That's how to make a more open build instead of a forced build. that's how to make another kai'sa or ezreal that's near impossible to balance because of an extremely open build path. More variety in build paths isn't always a good thing.
: Aurelion Sol rework - What is good about it? - Ex Aurelion Sol main asking
His roams are stronger because of the increased distance on E and more burst damage on W, and a less easy to dodge Q. He's no longer _hard_ countered by every form of CC. He still has good waveclear if you're positioning properly and hitting most/all of a wave with your W. Building early damage feels better, as a sol has never and hopefully will never scale well. He has more mobility overall because of the movespeed given by W, which at max rank, only has a 2s CD. His playstyle changed a bit, but he kept his core identity as a roaming mage. If you were good with old a sol, you should still be good with the new one. All of the skills you developed, aiming q, dancing back and forth to hit your stars, knowing when to roam, etc etc all still transfer to how he's played now.

: U.gg deoesnt even show vlad bot stats Also his silver winrate is lower tham master+ except mid where he has 49% Broken means bad design and unfun to play against? If so then there are a lot of broken champions (remember s8 {{champion:142}}or {{champion:555}} now) I dont find vlad annoying to face,maybe because i play him a lot and know how to counter 1. Bruisers destroy him 1v1 {{champion:75}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:24}} all are too tanky to die from his burst and can kill him with their dps 2. Vlad relies on his flash or flanks to reach the backline, good peel or mobile carries make it hatd for vlad to kill priority targets 3.point and click cc can stop him after his pool and he can be bursted down {{champion:90}} or{{champion:1}} 4.one mr item is often enaugh to survive initial burst 5 when vlad isnt ahead he gets 1 e 1w 1q and r in the teamfigh. He kills enemies in 1 combo or he dies (if enemies dont panic and cc him)

Like I said, it's an incredibly small sample set, but they have stats for every champion in every role as far as I'm aware. > Also his silver winrate is lower tham master+ except mid where he has 49% What does his silver winrate have to do with anything? > Broken means bad design and unfun to play against? Broken would mean they have something in their kit that makes them basically impossible to balance, regardless of their numbers. ie: akali pre-shroud nerf, irelia, azir, kalista, etc. Unless they're nerfed into nonexistence, their kit doesn't feel fair. I know how to play into vlad, and he actually does require a decent amount of skill to properly pull off. But if someone knows how to play him, he's near impossible to kill.

: You cant state he is broken when he has 48% winrate mid master+ and 50% winrate top also master+ He is good in low elo but {{champion:105}} and {{champion:90}} are better mid and {{champion:86}} {{champion:75}} and {{champion:24}} are better top {{champion:8}} has less than 50%winrate in both top and mid in silver Stats clearly show that he doesnt need nerfs

You also can't really base balance on master+ winrate. Riot doesn't even use winrate as a factor when balancing for skilled play, as there's too small of a sample set. You're also only looking at midlane, when he's played mid, top (about as often as mid), and rarely bot. His top and (albeit _incredibly_ small sample set in master+) bot winrates are a fair bit higher, with a sizeable banrate as well.

: Riot has lowered the standards for Legendary Skins.
In fairness when it comes to voice lines, xayah and rakan have by far the most voice lines out of any champion. Their base skins have over 450 voice lines each, which is almost double what a lot of newer champs have, and over 10-20x what old champs had. (Fun fact: Rakan has 80x as many voice lines as Rammus) Writing and recording voice lines is expensive. Expecting them to have anywhere near as many new lines for a skin is unrealistic.
