: Remember how the tribunal would take months to issue out a punishment? You basically want to bring the tribunal back and limit it to a smaller portion of players. Comparing the CS:GO system doesn't really work either. The all time peak number of CS:GO players concurrently is apparently 850,485. Granted I haven't checked LoL recent numbers, pretty sure it is more than that on a DAILY basis. Edit to fix stat clarity.
The all time peak for CS GO players was 11 million, and its back up to approximately 9 with it being free to play. The statistic you are looking at I saw and it is for players on at once. Granted that does not change the point you are trying to make, and I didn’t take that into consideration.

Lucian is an extremely reliable marksman (perhaps the most) and as such his win rate will always be high unless he's reworked. Hitting his numbers won't do anything - it's his two-hit passive and extreme mobility coupled with the drive-by ult that means he'll always be a dominating pick in low elo. And for the record, his 51.2% win rate is for the adc position. His top lane winrate is 50.5%, with an extremely low play rate.
Yeah, that Vayne q buff in 9.1 was a little overkill.

: Because Akali wasn't really a problem in lower ELO. And by "lower ELO" I mean below high Diamond. Then people hear their favorite streamer say it so therefore it must be true. Same kinda thing with Azir. But Akali's shroud is annoying which equates to people wanting her removed. Its like Yasuo syndrome. Even if he's underperforming in every metric people still find him annoying and unpleasant to play against. That doesn't make him overpowered, it makes him annoying. People dont want to play against annoying things so they want them gutted until nobody plays them
That honestly is a great point. I One Trick Pony Yasuo on one of my accounts, and it is much harder to win with how the meta is currently. He does not utilize lethality like the meta calls for, and people still complain about him when I play him. Maybe I should just adapt to the current meta and try and get above Plat this time.

: First Time or Int?
I personally just don't tilt over trolls anymore. I've been playing this game since 2014, and over 8 different accounts, I've seen hundred maybe thousands of trolls. At the end of the day, it is one match. Just hope the next one will be better and don't type in chat, learned that the hard way when my first acc got banned for snapping on an inting malphite in preseason 7 after multiple chat bans for similar reasons.

: Dont be that guy. He's Silver 2 and you're gold 4. The account where you just played against Lucian top is Gold as well.
This acc was in Plat 4 promos 5 times, but uh, hard times fell on me and I tilted and now its not doing so well.
: My Idea of a Decent Match Making System
Do you realize why this isn't the case? In a perfect world, this may work, and the LP gains might work in this world, but the matchmaking system is the way it is to shorten queue times. I personally would prefer to lane vs someone 4 ranks higher than me than wait 25 minutes to play a video game.

: > Lucian top has seen a dramatic increase since the beginning of the new year with no changes to his kit I'm not so sure about this. The playrate is so low that I could only find a single site that displays any data at all about it https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/overview/lucian/top No way of knowing how accurate it is with how low the playrate is > Lucian is notorious for having both an amazing early and late-game This just flat out isn't true. Op.gg, champion.gg, and leagueofgraphs, have his win rate falling off very heavily around the 20-25 minute mark As far as the other points go you mention Darius and Illaoi who are weak to ranged champions in general and that just a product of their kit. Not of Lucians. They have similar problems with champs like Kennen, Quinn, Teemo, Gnar, etc. I would prefer to see more data before I would consider it any more than a situational counterpick. Similar things were said about Vayne top in the past when in reality it was an awful pick with 43% winrate
That is a good counterargument. The same can be said about Akali though, a champion with a 43% winrate while still being called "Distgustingly overpowered" from a majority of the community. I'm only bringing this up because I'm not talking about the people hopping on the hype-train to play these offmeta picks. I am talking about the ADC mains who are taking him top lane for an easy win. and again, I may be 100% incorrect, but from personal experience, i stand behind what I said to the grain.
: Lucian top hasn't been a problem for ages. He's no worse than Viktor, Gnar, Pantheon, Gangplank or Ryze.
It is seeing a HUGE increase in popularity, while maintaining a winrate of 51% (which is MUCH higher earlier in the games) Proof: https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/stats/lucian
: I would agree with this besides the fact that you're playing at a much lower MMR than I have seen this on. I've seen this on my accounts Drachentron, TrueElephantis, and this account. Granted this account is by far the lowest MMR, but it is not the same skill as Silver. Plat Lucian players have a much deeper understanding of in-game mechanics, and play much better than the average Silver Lucian.
And to banning him, he has much too high of a pickrate to be banned every game, and if a teammate hovers him, there is the chance of an enemy snagging him.

I said no questions asked.
: He's fine as he is, ban him or pick Rammus, ez.

: If all 10 people disconnected the game would stop running. At most 9 ppl dcd at one time.
Look at the game chart, it's my second most recent game. The gold flow stopped completely on both teams. You are incorrect about this one buddy.
: Game Suddenly Ends (For All Players) Because of Karthus?
Just happened to me, got low priority because of it.
