Nice, I really like Xin Zhao's design so it's nice to see his character fleshed out more!
: Honestly, I’m starting to think Hashinshin is right about Riot’s top lane balancing philosophy
I can't even play top lane anymore without feeling utterly frustrated; Either I have to constantly stay top just to go even with anyone even after winning lane to stop an infinite splitpush, or I tank it out and have to play like a complete tool to absorb aggro from damage that bursts me down in five seconds despite having tank.

: RIOT, you gutted Akali and nerfed Irelia, why is Yasuo still untouched?
What pisses me off most about Yasuo is that he's supposed to be a samurai, not an ooga booga auto attack crit monster. He doesn't fit the thematic of ronin or samurai very well. When you think Samurai, you don't think flailing around and whacking your sword around like a pool noodle. You think of a single strike to decimate an opponent before they even realize what hit them. You think of an honorable warrior that narrowly dodges sword strikes before countering when they are attacking. You can keep a wind thematic, but it makes no sense to have a samurai rely on knocking up opponents for a giant flashy attack. It doesn't make sense for a samurai to throw tornadoes about wily nily and have more sustain than a soraka ultimate on steroids. It doesn't make sense for a ronin to just throw out a wall of air to block projectiles with little interaction. It doesn't make sense for a warrior to be slashing at mach 12 every second with a blade created for grace and clean strokes. What does make sense is a wandering warrior who excels at dueling powerful opponents, who takes them out with only the finest movements and least exertion.

Looking awesome, I'm already ecstatic about the {{champion:10}} , {{champion:25}} , and {{champion:82}} reworks! I would love to see what you guys have in the works for Pantheon, Would love to see a more interactive Spartan style kit. Same thing with Dr. Mundo and Volibear, and all the others as well, glad to see some work about to be done on some of these less interactive champions.

: Commentary of the Katarina change for patch 9.1
I'm not a katarina player, so I didn't know about any of this, but I really like your points. I'm not sure about other katarina players, and I certainly can't speak for them, but what if shunpo had two charges? Now, I'm not saying they should give her two charges of shunpo all the time for free. What if, when you picked up a dagger, if shunpo isn't on cooldown, it would give you a free charge for a very, very short window? This way, the trick would stay in the game, without giving her a free second shunpo to be abused. It would let Riot keep the changes they made for the reduction of shunpo's cast time, so you could dodge skillshots like Malphite R or Ezreal Q, while keeping the trick in the game and actually be performable. What do you guys who are more experienced with Katarina think?
: All these people assuming Zed's gender just because of masculine voice and Riot assuming gender by using "he".....lol. kids playing LoL can't have strong female champs, their fragile minds will collapse.
Akali and Irelia are literally broken.
: Your Shop Returns
Lancer Stratus Wukong, Chemtech Tryndamere, AND Project Fiora? Thanks Riot Games!
: It's about time we talked about Wukong - a lovable champion
Wukong is incredibly fun to play, wish they would give him some buffs that center him around top and jg, because he belongs at the top. Either that, or rework his kit to be more skill expressive, which a lot of people seem to complain about.
: [Problems with Wukong] , A present from Wukong mains to Riot's balance and Design teams
Love playing wukong and love his character and concept. Would really like to see an update for him so that he is seen more and is more interactive and fun to play, hopefully a rework pushing him towards top lane as a bruiser.
Rioter Comments
: This preseason patch has proven how grossly incompetent the current riot balance team is
I originally believed this balance patch would be great, new options to stop the already super snowbally gameplay, with the addition of turret plating and stat bonuses, but after playing a few games, it ended up feeling even worse to play from behind. The additional gold from turret plating is ridiculous considering how fast they die now, unlike their intended purpose of stopping super fast early game stomps. Dark Harvest is also super busted and pretty difficult to play against.

I agree with this. Trynd is pretty well balanced imo, he has alot of counters and I find it pretty fair to lane against him. There are way bigger problems to deal with, Trynd isn't really an issue compared to champs like Jax or Irelia.
: Repairing the tank class.
{{champion:98}} Shen player here, I think that in his current state he fairs pretty weak in lane, but once he gets going, he can become a dueling monster with insane peel and provide alot of safety for his team. His main problems imo are his god awful base stats, and very, VERY bad csing under tower due to the low damage output of his q and slow early attack speed. If he doesn't get defensive items, he gets poked out pretty hard, and if he does, he risks not getting enough damage to waveclear until later in the phase. I think the addition of the new rune shield bash will help out some of his problems, and remove any need to buff his defensive stats for now, although a bit of extra base health would be nice. I also think the new changes to turrets to make laning phase last longer will be helpful for him too, since it will make it safer for him to roam botside and save them or secure a kill. However, I believe he could use a little bit of extra base ad or base damage on his q at level 1, just to help him more consistently farm under turret when you get crapped on in lane, which is often.

: While you are still here i would also like to ask about Infernal Susan since now after 5 years it looks pretty dated and for a Legandary tier skin it has a sad recall of him just thumping his cane. Also his Q is animation is slower compared to the rest of his skins and it doesn't feel as satisfying as the rest of his skins do when you Q an enemy! If you are wondering i own that skin from day one and is my favorite.
check out The Magnificent Twisted Fate, at least Infernal Nasus has different vfx. There are much higher priority Legendaries that lack that same oomph of current legendaries than Nasus.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: October 19
Just wondering when those Poro buffs coming in. ATM, they have little to no impact on the ARAM meta, which is incredibly disheartening because they are possibly one of, if not the best characters in all of League of Legends. Despite his single ability, [feED pOrO], he still is incredibly skillful and has great defensive stats, plus the interactions are all fair and balanced, with the exception of blitz lightning killing them. However, executing his feED pOrO is sometimes difficult due to his ridiculous hitbox, and poro himself struggles with mobility. Besides that, his ulti, explosion, sometimes will not even activate due to the long cooldown on his feED ability, an entire turret. Personally, I would buff poro's CDs so that he can be constantly fed. Unlike less fun interactions such as Nasus or Veigar stacks, Poro stacks have a fun interaction attached due to actual size increase like Zac, providing a sense of accomplishment and visual indicator of poro threat level. However, the Poro has less chances to take stacks, as the lack of snacks we receive throughout the game force some poros to starve. Giving us Poro snacks on a more frequent interval would allow poro to reach his power spike faster with explosion, and make him far more viable in the ARAM meta. Now, I know what you're thinking: Won't Poro become overpowered with these buffs? Well, of course. Even a fed kai'sa is no match for a fed poro. In this case, I propose that to compensate to the heavy buffs to Snacks that Poro's defensive stats be lowered. At the moment, I do admit that the fact that only a Blitzcrank ulti can kill Poro is not a healthy interaction. By making more abilities able to damage Poro, Poro would become far more fun and intuitive to play with or against. Please give Poros more love. Sincerely, A Concerned League Player

: I actually really like Zoe (hear me out)
Gotta agree with you on this one. While Zoe is frustrating to play against, her personality is actually one of the reasons I really like this champion design. She's really colorful, has a fun personality, and looks great in game. I still despise playing against her, but RIOT did a great job of making her character look the part of a fun, colorful mage(even if she doesn't have to land spells at all to outplay you).

: Nexus Blitz - Week 4 Feedback and Patch Notes
All I want to say, Riot, is that you have something really special with Nexus Blitz. While the game mode is unpolished, as it shows, the sheer passion put into this mini project really shows. The game emphasizes fun, and that's what league is all about. Bringing back old items, adding new clever mini games to league, and shortening the match length to accommodate those of us league players who have less time really reminded me of why I started playing league, although not long ago. While certain elements can be tuned, such as insta end bug events, frustrating payload missions where it instantly teleports to one side once time is over, and the on fire buff becoming very difficult to deal with, even more so when multiple players on the same team can have it at once, I genuinely think this game mode should be here to stay, forever. With unique textures, bug fixes, map balancing, and mini game improvement and new mini games, Nexus Blitz may very well be the best way to play League of Legends other than Summoner's Rift.

Echo from NA chipping in here; I believe this idea is a bit too tailored to a specific audience. I think a better idea would be to let all regions have access to all voice overs, so they can pick whatever language they prefer the most.

Hey Riot, just downloaded the patch, pulsefire skins are not on the store. Is there a reasoning behind this, am I a boosted animal, or is it just a bug? Thanks for any answer in advance.

: [Rework Concept] Mordekaiser, the Hollowed Revanent
Oh man, I love this concept! Personally as a shen main, this concept really seems to be similar to his, but more fun. Definite upvote, especially for that badass Q and W. The concept of him revolving around his mace is really cool, and while his E is slightly lackluster, and I'm sort of confused around the soul aspect, I'm still really behind this sort of rework for such an underappreciated champion. It would be really cool for him to be more focused around his metal theme, and maybe his ultimate and E could reflect that more. Jeez, I wish this was on PBE already.
